Journal Through the Bible: Week 48 Wednesday

Song of Solomon chapters 6, 7, and 8

Does God issue any commands?

  • God does not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God does not speak.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Solomon went down to his beautiful garden. As God, Jesus walked among the beauty of the Garden of Eden. He also walked among his creation when he came as a baby born in Bethlehem. He is Emmanuel, God with us. 
  • The loved one asks to be set as a seal upon the heart of the beloved because of the strength of love an jealousy. Our God is a jealous God who desires our hearts to be faithful only to Him in the relationship provided through the work of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the seal placed upon us to show God's ownership.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • One day we will walk in the unspoiled, untainted garden of God with our Beloved.
  • Our prayer can be summed up in the last verse of this book, "Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices." Even so come, Lord Jesus!
