There is nothing more important than for the Body of Christ to be involved in the Kingdom’s business. The business of Salvation! Now. I am not only talking about saving the sinner but also in the business of everyday life. My life, yours and that of the worlds. For as stated, “To be imitator’s of God” – Esp. 5:1-2. God is not a loner, having all the ability to be one and yet He chooses to have not only Angelic but mankind armies at His will, and for the separation and destruction of all things contrary to His sovereignty. God is at the head and we are to follow and mimic His ways and that of the Kingdom.

Salute Him who is the leader of us all! He who gave without consideration of price did not deter His Blood for us who by fear chained ourselves to the law of no effect. For He is the Messiah, who has saved us from all deceptions of darkness and the grave. He is to be honored and revered with all humility for which one of us would have without resistance accepted that cross of shame.

What is there to say? God is bold! God tells Moses, “I Am that I Am”! To put that into perspective is like the Sun to the Earth. The Sun will always be greater than the Earth, in size, radiance, and presence, while the Earth will be in its shadow constantly. That’s how bold God is and rightly so. God’s boldness is innate in His character and is for our benefit as it is one of the strongest and foremost quality we need in a leader; for which God is the ultimate.

Genesis 12:3 tells us that God will bless those that bless Abraham and his people, and curse those that curse Abraham but generally when I hear this scripture recited it is on the radio and someone is applying it to some of of the poor Jews in modern Israel as if it is for them exclusively. They mean well in doing this but they may be looking at only a small portion of the picture. What about the rest of Abraham’s true descendants?

We have to keep in mind that Abraham lived approximately 4 thousand years ago in Canaan, close to where Asia and Africa meet, so through some genealogical lines we are all descendants of him. For example, I have found some of my own family lines which link to kings of ancient Israel as I have been into genealogy since the 1980s. And even though my dna is largely Northwest Europe I have some small bits going into Western Asia so I can be counted as Abraham’s seed too, HOWEVER, it is those of good faith that are counted as the TRUE people of Abraham. Galatians 3:26 says, “Now if you belong to Christ, then indeed you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.” With this in mind you should be blessing and helping your fellow Christians. Race, size, hair color, and form matter little, nor should we hold back blessing fellow believers because we do not agree on every issue.

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.–Galatians 6:2

Be not confused in these days as men seek peace and security. For by it will come the destruction of the world. The world makes what is seen important but God seek the Spirit of things for His Righteous cause. Our God is of ancient days and His peer crosses the limits of this world to put in place peace and prosperity for all marked with the Blood of the Cross, Sanctified for Holiness; a light for the world.

It should not be surprising to what’s happening in the world, and even though we know these things must happen; many may find it hard to make sense of the rapid changes occurring and that as Christians we face. It has come as a shock for some in the church and maybe there is a feeling of surrealism and skepticism for these events. Is the world coming to an end and can we expect the Savior to suddenly appear to take His church away?

Weary not! But with every day, fill the soul with the Word and presence of the Spirit. For in due season your hopes will be fulfilled. The days have become like dry grass on fire, being consumed with every waking and even the sleep is but for a moment. Weary not! For these things must be for the preparation of Christ in the clouds, not to be denied His love for His bride and the finality to those opposed to God’s will. All it means is that the harvest is soon to be ready and the labors need to increase for the reaping and filling of baskets of precious reward.

There is nothing more than being in love that turns humans into emotional sandbags. Of instantaneously changing their immediate disposition into one of being carefree, patience and having hope. Authentic love does that to you. It makes you want to be and do better even improving your work and home habits, making you stretch and strive harder than you even thought you could. It keeps you in a heightened state, floating above any and all human level. It is a higher status of being. This is what falling love can do.

Do you understand the war you have been called into? The fray that has made you marked with the Blood of the Lamb? How be it then as a soldier in the army of Christ and all that is Righteous before Heaven’s Throne; there is a failure to train up for the battle head?

               The Song of Songs has often been looked upon as a strange little book and many over the centuries have wondered why it is even in the scriptures.  It was even disputed somewhat as late as 90 AD, at the Council of Jamnia.  As for the time of its composition dates range from about 980 BC all the way down to the late date of 220 BC.  It is also a book that seems to have many interpretations that differ so much that many just pass it over to avoid the problems and its flowery language.  It does seem to have about 4 main interpretations and these I will list below:

*It is an allegory where the groom/prince represents God and his love for his bride Israel.  Many educated Jews have held this position for generations and there is no doubt that Israel is often presented as a bride to God, wayward or loyal. (Jeremiah 3:20, Isaiah 54...) and some will give elaborate interpretations for each verse.

*Related to the above is the position that Songs is an allegory portraying the love of Yeshua Christ for his bride the church. (Revelations 21:2-11).  

*Some hold a position that it is portraying, in extended metaphor, the love of God/Christ for the human soul, of each individual.

*Some say that it is simply the poetic meetings between Solomon and a Shulamite maiden, put into flowery language, and nothing more..

These are some common views held and sometimes they are found mixed but what if the book is multi-dimensional, in the sense that God designed it through various writers to touch on many things or to point to many things.  I think Song of Songs teaches that love is higher than materialism. Note the the second verse…where “wine” represents (?) material things.  This possibly indicates a design like the Psalms, where the very first psalm illustrates the two paths: following God or you can follow Evil, thus setting the tempo for the rest of the Psalms? This is something to think about.
