The writer's inkhorn international's story
Everyone has a story.
The Writer's Inkhorn International 's (TWI) story centers around the foundational scripture in Ezekiel 9.
Ezekiel 9 is judicial summons or call to write.
The year was 2005 when the desire to launch a calligraphy business arose.
Calligraphy is a sacred writing that transforms hand lettering into beautiful art.
The name for this sacred venture was important; therefore, the burden to pray and seek biblical answers was an essential.
Opening to the book of Ezekiel, I (Dr. Deborah) began reading. At the end of the eight chapter, I fell asleep.
I awoke and began reading the ninth chapter of Ezekiel, which read:
Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar. (Ezekiel 9:1)
I received my answer and my summons to write.
The decision to engage in the written word; in prayer, prophecy, and teaching was not a personal choice or invitation.
A summons is defined as "a call by authority to appear at a named place or to attend to a duty." Ezekiel saw a man dressed in linen. Linen were worn by priest. The priest was a scribe, as denoted by his weapon of war, the writer's inkhorn.
In ancient times, inkhorns were vessels constructed from the horn of an animal, typically a ram. The inkhorn was used to carry the writer's ink. The horn also transforms into a shofar, which was used to alert or mobilize a group of people.
Ezekiel 9 is our summons to serve as The Writer's (Yahweh's) vessel of ink.
We are His vessel.
The anointing from Holy Spirit is His ink.
The pen is His battle ax; His weapon of war.
