Unveiling the Song of Songs
“Unveiling the Song of Songs” is an in-depth study in the Song of Solomon, with a strong focus on bridal preparation for the return of Jesus.
We see a consistent pattern through the Scriptures, where the Lord describes His relationship with His people as that of a husband and a wife, or a Bridegroom and His betrothed bride. This is a covenant of jealous love, provision, inheritance and obedience. Within the framework of this marriage covenant, the Lord has destined for us to partner with Him, in His leadership over the nations, ruling and reigning with Him.
I’ve approached the Song of Songs in this manner, and emphasize both our personal and corporate relationship with the Lord Yeshua, in this bridal paradigm. In focusing on the spiritual applications, we will not negate the natural meanings, where the natural meaning also makes sense. This book primarily interprets the Song as a parable of our developing relationship with the Lord. To this journey of the maturing bride, I have also added the “spices” of understanding the natural story line, and my own deep trials, revelations and struggles in my journey to intimacy with the Lord. In addition, I share the historic, Hebrew, botanical, biblical and sociological background needed to fully grasp this book of the Bible.
The Lord will have a mature bride, male and female, who will stand in covenant with Him, conducting ourselves in priestly purity, humility and loyalty. He will have a people who will love Him with all our heart, soul and strength, fulfilling Deuteronomy 6:5. The Song reveals the depth of the Lord’s emotions towards His people. One of the most comforting truths in the Song is that despite our weaknesses and failures, the Lord finds us beautiful. He will not give up on us, and will perfect us in love, until that day.
The Lord is asking for transparency, intimacy, and an end to hiding. This is a continuing theme throughout the Song: His voice thunders over the mountains; He is calling His Bride; He is knocking at our door; He is gazing through our window; He is thrusting His hand into the lock on our door, He is inviting us to come; He is waiting to be invited to come into our garden.
We may think that we are lovesick for the Bridegroom. But the truth is that He is more lovesick than we are. His pain is greater than ours, yet we do not know it.
He waits for a response from the ones He came for, lived for, died for. Our bridal love was the joy set before Him as He hung on the cross. The Lord has waited for a long time for an equally-yoked bride. It is time that we love Him as much as He loves us.
The Song ends with these words: “Come quickly, Beloved. Be like a swift and graceful young stag, and come for us quickly, leaping upon the mountains of our incense.”
The Bible ends with these words:
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come (Rev. 22:17).
Even so, come quickly Lord Yeshua. (Rev. 22:20). AMEN.
