In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua]
was in the beginning with God.
SONGS OF SOLOMON
The Book of Songs of Solomon is a poetic love song written by King
Solomon. It is the fifth of the five books of
poetry and wisdom. It was
written early in his reign over Israel that began in 971 BC at a time
when his heart was right with God. This is evident by his devotion to a Shulamite woman,
the exception to his later political marriages that
eventually led him away from God and into idolatry.
Solomon’s song tells a story of the joy of romantic love, one that is
authentic. His song takes us on his journey from courtship to the
wedding and to the growth of love during its struggles. The poetic Song
of Solomon is easy to read because of its simple message of love between
a man and a woman. When experienced in the confines of God’s word, the
emotional and sexual pleasures are a gift from God.
From the spiritual perspective, this message of love is
demonstrated by Christ for His church. At the first
resurrection, Christ will present his bride, the church, to
His Father. When God creates a new
earth and heaven after
the great white throne judgment, He will present a
Jerusalem brought down from heaven prepared as a bride
adorned for her husband.
