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.


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 New Jerusalem brought down from heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
