Song of Solomon 1:
April 10,11 and 12, 2017 Monday to Wednesday
Song of Solomon 1:
The kisses of God’s love are better than the greatest pleasures of this world and those that give us the greatest pleasure in life. Therefore we ask God to kiss us with the kisses of His mouth. We ask God to express love to us with the greatest clear expressions of His love. 2
Song 1:1-2 (KJV) 1The song of songs, which is Solomon’s.2Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.
The pure expression of your being of love is like the pouring out of the most precious best smelling ointments which causes those whose love is pure from the loves of this world to love God. 3
Song 1:3 (KJV)3Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.
We are to ask God Who is love to draw us and make the choice with declaration that we will purse after God, to exult and rejoice in Elohim, to remember Who Elohim is in His love above all the pleasures of this world. Those that are upright love Elohim because Elohim is the source of all that is right and good. 4
Song 1:4 (KJV) 4Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.
We are not to look upon those that are part of His bride because of the way they are different because of what they have gone through in trials and tribulation. In other words do not judge according to outward appearance. Those in the bride of Christ are those who are persecuted by the denominational churches and the Catholic church that came out of the early church. In fact in some cases they labored in looking after the sheep of these denominational churches to the neglect of their own sheep. 5-6
Song 1:5-6 (KJV) 5I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.6Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
Those in the pure bride of Christ declare their love for Christ and ask where Christ is fully dwelling with the gathering of His people so that they fully rest in Him. They strongly express that they are not satisfied with gatherings of his people that are more distant from being with those that are right there close to Christ. 7
Song 1:7 (KJV) 7Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?
God counsels in response for those in the bride of Christ to bring themselves forth to be near the tents of true shepherds that feed their congregation and there feed those that God has brought into their lives. In other words, make it clear who the true shepherds are and begin to feed those God has placed in your life. This will then cause you to be lead of God to the gathering of assemblies that are the true bride of Jesus Christ where He comes down and inhabits the body. 8
Song 1:8 (KJV) 8If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds’ tents.
The bride responses by describing the beauty of the Bridegroom and declares that she will magnify the beauty of God, he bridegroom, by showing forth the greatness of the divinity and redemption of the LORD. 9-11
Song 1:9-11 (KJV)9 I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh’s chariots.10Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels, thy neck with chains of gold.11We will make thee borders of gold with studs of silver.
While the LORD sits before the bride at the place of fellowship the bride places before Him well placed expressions of affection that are like the sending forth of perfume before Him. To the bride of Jesus Christ the LORD is like a precious bundled gift of the most precious perfume, myrrh. Through the night she will make herself in the very center of her heart desire and being the place for the pleasure of Elohim with words of affection and comfort. 12-13
The LORD is to those who are His bride like a very fragrant flower which is the camphire. The LORD is very bright with beauty and His eyes are like doves eyes. The place of abiding with the LORD is pleasant and filled with life. The place of the LORD’s dwelling with His bride is surrounded with great pillars of great beauty and life like the cedar and fir tree. 14-17
Song 1:14-17 (KJV) 14My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.15Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves’ eyes.16Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green.17The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.
