Song of Songs

Shalom Yedidim (Beloved)
What do you see when you read the Song of Songs?  Do you see romance, love, sensuality?  What is the first thing that comes to your mind as you are reading?  Are you thinking about natural, human love or are you thinking of God's love?  Although what will come to most people's mind is human love, that is NOT the reason God allowed the Song of Songs to be a part of the Bible.  The Bible is God's Word and everything in it points to Him.  When reading the Song of Songs we must change our mindset and our way of thinking.  When reading this book we must see Christ and Christ alone!  The Song of Songs is the Messiah's Love Song to His Beloved, those who have truly accepted Him as their Lord and Savior and are seeking a closer, more intimate relationship with Him.  The Song of Songs reveals the heart of God as He opens Himself up and reveals His feelings for His Beloved.  To only see this book as an expression of human love is to do it a vital injustice.  Join me as we begin this journey through the Love Song of our Messiah as our hearts begin to cry out, "Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth!"

  1. Amen, I must be honest when I first read Song of Songs truly that was my mindset seeing it in the natural, but now that I see it in a different light it's so breath taking.

  2. The Lord led me to your blog this morning, for the first time. I'm glad to hear someone who recognizes that the Song of Solomon is not about earthly love, but rather about the love between Christ and His Bride, the Church! Amen! I'm enjoying your blog, be encouraged to continue :-)
