Good Wednesday morning it’s July 14, 2021, I pray all is well. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
Glory to You, our God, glory to You! Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, present in all places and filling all things, the treasury of blessings and Giver of life: come and abide in us. Cleanse us from all impurity and save our souls, gracious Lord.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us. (3) Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen! All-holy Trinity, have mercy on us. Lord, forgive our sins. Master, pardon our transgressions. Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities, for the glory of Your name. Lord have Mercy. (3) Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
“Jesus taught us all to work together in the field being children of the light; reflecting the image of Christ to all we encounter. The field is known as the world, and I’m determined to spread His light; regardless of persecution.” - JPCE Spiritual Talk
Song of Songs 7:1-14
7:1: “Shulamite” means “Peace”........... The Church is full of Gentiles of every Nation, wanting Peace or Shulamite, it’s representing the Jewish People and is calling her to return to her redeemer, reference (Romans 11:28-29).......... Also Shalom is another meaning or way to say "PEACE", it was used more like a greeting meaning we come in peace.
7:2-10: The Bride praised the beauty of the Bridegroom, and so we see here the Bridegroom is praising the beauty of the Bride. The beauty of her feet we can make a correlation to the beauty of the feet of those who preach the Gospel of peace (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). The nose is used for scent, and our scent is directly linked to our memory. The discernment forms a part of the living Church. The King is taken with the HEAD and the HAIR of his bride, also her stature and her breasts. Saint Paul teaches us in (Ephesians 5:25) “Christ also loved the Church and gave His life for her.” At the Marriage of Cana where Jesus turned the water into wine. Jesus saved the good wine for last (John 2:10); It’s all symbolic to a way a husband loves his wife, just like Christ our God loves His Church.
7:11: This is a repeating phrase found throughout the Song of Songs, The Bride declares full devotion to the Bridegroom and no other.
7:12-14: Both the Bride and the Bridegroom head out that they may go forth together into the field. Yeshua (Jesus) teaches us in (Matthew 13:38), “The Field is the world”. The next sequence of words, like villages, rise early, the vine has flowered, aroma, and fruits…...new and old, seems to be a series of prophetic descriptions of evangelism by the Apostles of the Church.
The field is right for harvest; it's our job to get as many as we can to Christ. We are living in troubling times and only a false teacher would scream revival is ahead of us. Truth is that there are only hard times ahead of us and only faith will pull us through. As we move through the Gospel it’s clear we are the Church and we need to maintain our flavors and aromas. Christ our God is the one who brings forth the fruit of the vine, and through him the old passes away and the new is created.
“The covenant both Israel and the Church have with God can’t be undone. For it’s everlasting and eternal, and full of flavor and aromas of wisdom. And that Christ our God who brings forth the fruit of vine, washing away the old, and bringing forth a new creation in us all.” - JPCE Spiritual Talk
Closing the Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
