Book / 21 / 237 chapter - 1
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
For your love is better than wine. (Song of Solomon 1:2)
1 Kings 4:32 tells us that King Solomon wrote 1005 songs, and this one is called “the song of songs.” This was THE song, his #1 hit.
There are many possible interpretations of the Song of Songs. Some see it simply as a sensuous love song between Solomon and his first wife; while others, especially Jewish rabbis, teach that it depicts the spiritual relationship between God and the nation of Israel.
Most Christian bible scholars understand it to be a picture of the love between Jesus Christ and His church. Some Christians also see it as a biblical guide to married love.
As Paul the Apostle was praying for the Ephesians, he prayed that they would “be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge” (Eph. 3:18–19).
The love of Jesus Christ for us is so deep, so rich, so intense that we can never completely grasp the full depth of it.
Because of the fragrance of your good ointments,
Your name is ointment poured forth;
Therefore the virgins love you. (Song of Solomon 1:3)
A name represents the person, and in that sense it embodies their character and attributes. Who has more embodied in their name than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
This also brings to our remembrance the lady pouring the perfumed oil on the head of Jesus. (Mark 14, John 12)
Draw me away And we will run after you (Song of Solomon 1:4)
Two things stand out from this verse:
1.Man needs to be divinely drawn to God.
2.God is ever seeking to draw men to himself.
