The dew of Mount Hermon

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore." Psalm 133.1-3 
Mount Hermon represents the Mount of Consecration. It is the place where the Lord Jesus was transfigured, glorified and consecrated by God the Father before Peter, James and John. The Jordan River is formed from its sources and it supplies all Israel. It also typifies the Holy Spirit, which sustains the New Israel, the Church, worldwide. Led by the Spirit, King David says that is this Mount the Lord commanded His blessing and eternal life.
