Who is Hadassah? Anyone know?
Hadassah is Queen Esther's original Jewish name and it means "myrtle". Looked it up. Myrtle is a plant, a shrub that produces star-shaped flowers and blackberry-like fruits. Did some research to find it has many medicinal benefits including essential oil (which always signifies anointing in the Bible) and was used in Jewish rituals like the Feast of the Tabernacles.
Esther means "star"....do you see the connection? Hadassah became known as Esther and was highly anointed to bring healing to the threat of Jewish annihilation of her time.
Heather is also a low-growing (short girl reference, ha!) shrub which also produces purple/white flowers and works well as both an antiseptic and detoxifier. LOL. (I'll gladly take that anointing)
Ha! God is so cool! I love when Holy Spirit takes me on a discovery journey like this one to discover deeper truths and spiritual significance that lies below the surface. #NerdoftheWord
