(4) I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases.
The Bridegroom King is speaking to the brides-to-be now, admonishing them not to disturb His bride.
In other words, there is a time when the Bridegroom has His bride in a very strategic season, working in her life; teaching, imparting, and strengthening in a unique way. In this season she is hearing from Him alone, and He has ordained it to be that way.
Many times, unknowingly, the voices of well-meaning friends can drown out the voice of God in our lives. Social media can also drown out His voice, as well as the latest news, the hustle and bustle of our everyday life, or just neglecting our time alone with Him. But there comes a time when He will interrupt everything around her and call her to Himself, because He desires to do a new work in her.
To charge the daughters is equivalent to commanding them in a very stern way. The Bridegroom King is very serious in this instruction. He does not want her disturbed in this strategic season of her life, as He is pouring out His grace and love upon her, bringing her into a higher place in Him. To distract her now, in any way, would bring division and cause her to be drawn away from her divine mandate. Yes, God has a divine mandate for His bride, and He will stop at nothing to make sure she makes it to that place of commissioned authority.
The Bridegroom King is releasing His grace in her now, blending together the intimacy and servant-hood. He is perfecting His bride, and He will deal with anyone or anything that tries to hinder the process. He is creating a bride without spot or wrinkle.
