Thy hair is like a flock of goats
Songs of Solomon 4:1 -
Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair is as a flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead.
Imagine telling your wife you have eyes of a dove and your hair is like flock of goats!
Yesterday we received a message from the book of Ezekiel which gives great understanding of the Beings of the spirit world. In today's message we received from the book Songs of Solomon which also is one of my most favourite books for it gives an awesome insight into the relationships of the Beings of the spirit world especially between the Godhead, Christ, man and the accusers.
Today's message looks weird when we take the literal text but when we take the root meanings of the words and what they symbolize it gives an awesome understanding of how the Lord looks at His Church.
Songs of Solomon4:1 [expanded] Behold thou are beautiful, my companion, thou are beautiful; thou hast a heart which is not understood by people of this world and is hidden from them: thy fear comes because of thy fail strength due to the many covenants you hold.
In today's message the Lord is telling us He loves His bride the Church and says He alone understands Her. But He points out to the one reason the Church does not know its strength and does not have the power and authority all because it does not know that the Word of God is one.
The book of Revelation shows when the New Church is just born Satan tries to destroy it and the young Church of Christ flees into wilderness and after 1260years it returns. It was in (around) 300AD when the real attack was done on Christ's Church by the church which was run by Satan; the Satanic church split the Bible into the Old Testament and the New Testament (the Protestant movement happened around 1560AD exactly 1260 years later when the Word was given to common man). People do not understand the great disaster this move of the Catholic Church did to the keep people from understanding God's Word.
When I sit with any Catholic priest with the Word, the first things I do is prove the Word of God is one and that there is no Old and New Testament, and only after that I take on the topic we discuss.
If we see, Jesus out of His own mouth said He fulfilled all that was written by Moses and the Prophets. It was only when He opened the understanding of the (Old Testament) scriptures they came to know Him. We also see Paul preached Jesus Christ and mainly concentrated on the CROSS of the Lord Jesus Christ and yet when he preached people verified all he said from scriptures. That time there was no New Testament. People were verifying Paul's preaching from the Old Testament.
Without the Old Testament there is hardly anything we understand of the New Testament. Jesus becomes more of a historical figure who taught wonderfully and did great miracles and that is it. Minus the Old Testament people cannot understand why He was called son of man, Son of God and also God, and from what and how does He saves us.
The Lord id telling us the Bible is the Word of God and not words of God. God made a covenant with mankind and this was made starting with Noah and was perfected in Jesus. It was just One Covenant, which was renewed, bettered and perfected throughout the 7 people Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David and Jesus. There is no place God cancelled or made invalid anything committed with the previous people. Bible says all the promises in Abraham were fulfilled in Jesus Christ. It also called Jesus and the Star of David the eternal King promised to David. It was through Jesus Christ we all received the Rainbow (the 7 Spirits of the Holy Spirit) as a promise to the generations of Noah that till the Rainbow is with us we will not be destroyed.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, the accuser knows your Word is Truth, which will bring us to the Truth and save us. That is why he first attacks the Word and tries to distort the Word. He made Eve and Adam sin by distorting the Word and has caused the Church to be corrupted by distorting the Word. Lord we prayer your people be set free from the deceit of the evil one and come to know your Word in spirit and truth that your Word is one like You are One...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
