Love of Jesus in the Song of Songs

In Song of Songs

  • Farmer boy is in love with her.
  • She is in love with the former boy
  • The King is in love with a country girl
  • When Solomon want to wood that girl, he came in disguise of a country boy
  • That is the picture of King of all Kings ( Jesus Christ ) , when He came to us, He came in a lowly way
  • Jesus is rich but He came in to a poor family ( which can be proved when Mary gave 2 doves , which normally only Poor people will give )
  • Marry came from Natan, David’s son
  • Joseph came from Solomon son
  • Because of the curse on a king, Johoyakin a king of Judah, they became poor
  • Ox = Very Rich
  • Lamp = Middle income
  • Pair of Doves = Poor
  • Jesus didn’t remain poor
  • Wherever Jesus is , Gold will come, Myrh and Frankisense . Jesus sponsored His flight to Alexandra after that.

Song of Songs is like

Watching a play

  • Daughters of Jerusalem narrating
  • Beloved narating
  • Shepherd king narrating

Feminine Speciality

  • Picture of Church
  • You are the one receiving the love/protection
  • You are made to be loved
  • you are not made to be rule the man
  • Equal position but not same function

 

  • First thing she says, let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth ( to the pure all things are pure )
  • Love does not wants the knowledge from a far, Love wants intimacy.
  • We are here not just to know about Jesus, but to draw near to Him
  • We want Him to kiss us
  • The word worship in Hebrew http://biblehub.com/greek/4352.htm proskuneo is also called to kiss
  • We normally don’t give kisses freely and we are very careful about our kisses
  • To kiss you should come near

Joseph Story

  • Joseph Told to his brothers, even after they betrayed him, “Come near to me”
  • Then he says “you will dwell in goshan ” :
  • Goshan in Hebrew its called drawing near
  • And their ( in the place of nearness ), i will provide for you
  • i will feed you
  • I will protect you and your loved ones and your little ones
  • We are all near to God
  • But we have to be near to Jesus ( all are not near to Jesus )
  • There was 70 disciples around Jesus when He walked on earth.
  • Later on 12 remained
    Many of the 70 left
  • Out of twelve there were 3 who were closer ( Peter, James , John )
  • Out of three one is even closer ( John )

Song of Solomon 1:7-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

(To Her Beloved)

Tell me, O you whom I love,
Where you feed your flock,
Where you make it rest at noon.
For why should I be as one who veils herself
By the flocks of your companions?

The Beloved

If you do not know, O fairest among women,
Follow in the footsteps of the flock,
And feed your little goats
Beside the shepherds’ tents.

Good Shepherds

  1. Feed
  2. Rest

O fairest among women

  • God does not love you after you have come and arrive at a place of holiness
  • He loves you from the start of your Journey
  • But He sees you as most beautiful among women
  • Fairest in Hebrew : http://biblehub.com/hebrew/3303.htm yapheh , which means beautiful

Follow in the footsteps of the flock

  • This is the answer for question “You know where your Lord is?”
  • Answer : Go to church
  • Find out other flock where they are well fed and you will find the Lord
  • Please where the Lord feeding the Goats, besides where the shepherd tent
  • When we come together then its shepherd’s tent

Tent

  • Tent is temporal
  • Buildings are temporal
  • Thats why we use our money to serve Him
  • We don’t use God to serve money
  • God wants to prosper people. Yes.
  • But we should be careful on over emphasis on Prosperity. It turns people off. Jesus is more important than money
  • With Jesus you are provided for and much more.

Song of Solomon 4:1-5
New King James Version (NKJV)

The Bridegroom Praises the Bride

The Beloved

Behold, you are fair, my love!
Behold, you are fair!
You have dove’s eyes behind your veil.
Your hair is like a flock of goats,
Going down from Mount Gilead.
Your teeth are like a flock of shorn sheep
Which have come up from the washing,
Every one of which bears twins,
And none is barren among them.
Your lips are like a strand of scarlet,
And your mouth is lovely.
Your temples behind your veil
Are like a piece of pomegranate.
Your neck is like the tower of David,
Built for an armory,
On which hang a thousand bucklers,
All shields of mighty men.
Your two breasts are like two fawns,
Twins of a gazelle,
Which feed among the lilies.

My sister, my spouse;
You have ravished my heart
With one look of your eyes,
With one link of your necklace.

Drip as the honeycomb;
Honey and milk are under your tongue;
And the fragrance of your garments
Is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
