Your love is more delightful than wine”  Solomon’s Song of Songs 1:2  “Draw me after you, let us hurry”

The bride in the Song of Songs desire the closest most intimate relationship with Israel’s newly anointed Messiah.  She is a Gentile enemy slave girl that used to hate God and His king and then she gets “love” in her heart.  This is no ordinary love.  Her love was priceless and “couldn’t be quenched“. Song 8:6  Their love for each other was a superlative love fueled by a flame above all other flames.  Their love was so powerful that it brought two enemies together in marriage to the point were the two walked in agreement in every way.  They were like minded, of the same mind and same love.  They were on in love and became one in every way, happier and happier ever after!
The Bride in the Song lets us know how this happier and happier ending came about from her perspective.  So the Song is written in the first person so we can know what she thought and feel what she felt.  Therefore we will get an idea of what love is.  Get an idea of love and you get an idea of God, delight in this thought and you will be transformed and love more.

bridewaiting-1Think about it!  The God of the universe Authors a Love poem better than any other, written to those who have a burning desire for a closer more intimate relationship with Himself through their union and communion with a type of Christ or by way of analogy Jesus Christ.

God’s Love once tasted by the soul is “more delightful than wine” Song 1:2.  The best thing is that God wants you to experience His Love to the fullest, “Drink your fill” Song 5:1.   So that “you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory” 1 Pt. 1:8. Your one burning desire is to “behold the beauty of the Lord”  Psalm 27:4 and “to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge”  Eph. 3:19 therefore you ask for it over and over again and God will do abundantly above and beyond what you think or imagine.

The bride in the Song longs to intensely experience the love and intimacy of God.  Her hearts cry is “Let him kiss me with the KISSES” Song 1:2. and then God answers by pouring  out his Love within our “hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us”  to the degree that it may cause you to “faint”  Song 2:5  I invite you to taste it by feeling what the bride felt, for God’s love is “Better felt than understood”  Jonathan Edwards

Do not delay!  Let us hurry, let the King of kings bring us into a closer more intimate relationship with Himself through our knowledge of His love.

 
1 Tim. 3:16  “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

 

Jonathan Edwards

“The more any doctrine or institution brings to light of the spiritual world, the more will it urge to love and charity.”

The Song of Songs is a love poem.   A love poem above all other love poems.  The Song of Songs.  The very essence and nature of the Song of Songs has the greatest ability to communicate the Love of God the very Flame of the LORD to your mind and heart enflaming it better than any other love poem.  Surely this Book is worthy of our utmost attention if we are to grow in our Love to God!
