The Journey Begins...
The Song of Solomon is the greatest love story ever told. Why? Because it's your story. Listen, nobody's story is as good as yours! So where does it start? Well, it depends on what point in your life you first encountered or experienced your Bridegroom King Jesus. That's where the story actually begins.
In scripture, the Song of Solomon, sometimes called the Song of Songs, is most often read as an allegory. An allegory is simply a representation of a spiritual meaning under the guise or semblance of another meaning, such as the natural. So while this story in the natural is about King Solomon and the young Shulamite girl who are head over heels in love with one another, it's true meaning is found on a spiritual level. The spiritual level is what we will journey through, because after all is said & done, its the one that matters!
While I am by no means an expert on this subject, I have studied the Song of Solomon in depth for about a decade and a half, and feel that God has given me great understanding & revelation on it.
I pray my understanding would be a platform for you to go higher and deeper in your understanding. Because in the end, what matters most is that we know Him, this lover of our soul. What matters is that we feel His love, because out of this love will come the fulfillment of all our hopes and dreams. It's not a fairy tale, girls! It's real!
The song of songs, which is Solomon's. Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth (SS 1-2)... to be continued next week.
