Song of Songs (Program #7) – Called More Strongly to Live Within the Veil Through the Cross After Resurrection (1)

The fourth and final stage of the loving seeker’s experience as portrayed in the Song of Songs is to be called more strongly to live within the veil through the cross after resurrection.

This book Song of Songs is a marvelous book full of symbols or figures of spiritual things. All the physical things in this book symbolizes spiritual things. Solomon, as the great and wise king, is a picture of Christ. And this Shulamite country girl who, is attracted to him and pursues him and has a loving relationship with him, is a picture of individual believer in Christ who passes through a number of different stages in her experience of Christ.

Song of Songs (Program #3) – Drawn to Pursue Christ for Satisfaction (2)

The Song of Songs contains a great picture of a seeking Christian’s pursuit of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the opening chapter, there is a description of this pursuit in verses four through eight:

Draw me; we will run after you- The king has brought me into his chambers- We will be glad and rejoice in you; We will extol your love more than wine. Rightly do they love you. I am black but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, Like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon. Do not look at me, because I am black, Because the sun has scorched me. My mother’s sons were angry with me; They made me keeper of the vineyards, But my own vineyard I have not kept. Tell me you whom my soul loves. Where do you pasture your flock? Where do you make it lie down at noon? For why should I be like one who is veiled beside the flocks of your companions? If you yourself do not know, You fairest among women, Go forth on the footsteps of the flock, And pasture your young goats by the shepherds’ tents.” (Song of Songs 1:4-8)

04 Nov 2010 Divine Romance

With our last program of Song of Songs, we have now concluded all of our life study in the Old Testament. In Song of Songs, which is an extract of the whole Bible, the seeking believer, who typifies us as the seeking believers of Christ, prays to the Lord : “Draw me…” (v.2), “Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth” (v.4). This shows that we need to have a personal and affectionate relationship with our dear Lord Jesus. We should tell the Lord, “Lord, draw me to Yourself. Lord, kiss me with the kisses of Your mouth.” We need to tell the Lord every day, even right now, “Lord Jesus, I love You”.  This is to be in the divine romance.  May we all give ourselves to love the Lord.

  1. How could a country girl like me
    Become Your match — Your bride to be?
    You’re holy and You are divine
    But I’m fallen and human.
    Without You, Lord, I have no chance
    To be like You in this romance.
    But You chose me ere the world began
    Nothing could change Your plan.

    This divine romance
    Is My heart’s deep plan.
    I became a lowly man
    To court My country girl.
    Nothing could deter,
    Nothing can alter
    My eternal love for her;
    I’ll gain My country girl.

  2. No man or angel ever knew
    This secret hidden deep in You
    That You desired to be one with man
    Before the world began.
    Though sin came in to ruin me
    Through Satan’s scheme and subtlety
    Nothing could break Your love for me
    To gain me totally.

    This divine romance
    Is My heart’s deep plan,
    I became a lowly man
    To court My country girl.
    Nothing could deter,
    Nothing can alter
    My eternal love for her;
    I’ll gain My country girl.

  1. As King of kings You became a man,
    You died for me—I’ve been redeemed,
    In resurrection made us queen
    To marry You, my King.
    From death You ‘rose and entered me,
    I now possess Your divinity;
    In life and nature we’re the same:
    Both human and divine.

    In Your love I’m drawn,
    To You I belong;
    I am not my own, Lord,
    I’m Yours alone.
    By Your love I’m drawn,
    In Your name I’m charmed,
    And Your Person captured me,
    For I’ve been kissed by Thee.

  2. Lord, in this close sweet fellowship,
    Lord, be with me so intimate,
    So personal and affectionate;
    A sweet relationship.
    Lord, daily change my inward being
    Lord, all my heart possessing
    In all my being—transforming
    To be Your bride and queen.

    In Your love I’m drawn,
    To You I belong;
    I am not my own, Lord,
    I’m Yours alone.
    By Your love I’m drawn,
    In Your name I’m charmed,
    And Your Person captured me,
    For I’ve been kissed by Thee.
