Upon the Mountains of Spices

November 20, 2017

Song of Solomon 8:14 AMPC … [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to Him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with Him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices!
.

Make haste Beloved
Come quickly and meet
Upon the mountains of spices
Dance the dance of the hart{heart} –
Hab 3:18
A sweet fragrance released
An incense so sweet
Songs all thru the night –
Ps 42:8
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee –
Sos 4:6, 2:17
Dance upon the mountain of myrrh
With the feet of the hindHab 3:19
The aroma of Christ2Cor 2:14
In the mount of the LORD
It will be provided
And SEEN. Gen 22:14

Song 4:6Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense.

The hill of frankincense is Calvary, where, “through the eternal Spirit He offered Himself”{a fragrant offering –Eph 5:2}; the mountain of myrrh is His embalmment & burial in the garden(Jn 19:39-42) till the resurrection “daybreak.” (*from Jameison-Fausset-Brown)

a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil{usually made from myrrh}, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table . -Mt 26:7

Many commentaries think the mountain of myrrh – Heb mor, points to Mt Moriah- the place of myrrh(referring to the spices burnt as incense) where the temple was built(2 Chr 3:1) and where Abraham offered up his son Isaac, foreshadowing Christ’s sacrifice. (Matthew Henry, Wikipedia) Abraham called this place ‘The LORD Will Provide’. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided{seen}” (Gen 22:2,14).

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 98:1

  • * A new song is appropriate because the Lord is constantly intervening in the world as its just king
  • * “his right hand and his holy arm deliver victory for Him ”
    =>The right hand and arm symbolize his power as a warrior-king (see Isa 52:10). His arm is “holy” in the sense that it is in a category of its own; God’s power is incomparable.

.
From NetBible Isa 52:10

  • The Lord has bared His holy arm{reveals His royal power} in the sight of all the nations; That all the ends of the earth may see the salvation{deliverance} of our God.

Free Indeed

November 7, 2017

John 8:31-37“If you hold to My teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” …
… 33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill Me, because you have no room for My word.

Whoever the Son sets free
Is free indeed. Jn 8:36

Wherever the word of the Lord is spoken
That is where chains are broken.Is 61:1-3

The Lion of Judah roars
His enemies shake and tremble –Joel 3:16

Father- Glorify Your Name

November 1, 2017

Isaiah 26:8Yes, LORD, walking in the way of Your laws{your judgements}, we wait for You; Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.

Isaiah 26:8 NLT … LORD, we love to obey your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.
.

Our heart’s desire, O Lord, is to glorify Your Holy name!

Help us to praise Your name, O Lord, and tell of
… Your mighty deeds. 
Is 12:4

.

.
Isaiah 12:4 NLT … In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the LORD! Praise His name! Tell the world what He has done. Oh, how mighty He is!
.
John 12:28 … [Jesus says]“Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
.

Study
.
From Jn 12:28

  • Barnes’ Notes on the Bible:
    Glorify thy name – The meaning of this expression in this connection is this: “I am willing to bear any trials; I will not shrink from any sufferings. Let thy name be honored. Let thy character, wisdom, goodness, and plans of mercy be manifested and promoted, whatever sufferings it may cost me.” Thus Jesus showed us that God’s glory is to be the great end of our conduct, and that we are to seek that, whatever sufferings it may cost us.

Word Study – God of Amen = Faithful and True!
.
The God of the Amen is an OT title:
Isaiah 65:16 AMPC … So [it shall be] that he who invokes a blessing on himself in the land shall do so by saying, May the God of truth and fidelity [the Amen] bless me; and he who takes an oath in the land shall swear by the God of truth and faithfulness to His promises [the Amen], because the former troubles are forgotten and because they are hidden from My eyes.

From NetBible Isa 65:16

  • Amen[0543] = So be it, truth – name of the faithful

.
In the NT Jesus often introduces statements with
“Verily, verily, I say unto you”[281] = Amen{Hebrew for [0543]}
In doing so, He identified Himself with the God of the Amen
And revealed Himself as the One through whom all of God’s promises are fulfilled.
.
Revelation 3:14 AMPC … And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation:
.
2 Corinthians 1:20 AMPC … For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes (answer) in Him (Christ). For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God.

You are Beloved

October 31, 2017

You are beloved
My bride
My delight –Song 7:6

Just one glance of your eyes
The eyes of my dove
The eyes of my beloved
Beautiful –Song 6:1
Precious in my sight –Isa 43:4
I have called you by name
You are mine! –Isa 43:4
.

.

The Lover to His Beloved:
How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves.Song 1:15
.
You have ravished my heart, My sister, My bride; You have ravished My heart, With one glance of your eyes.Song 4:9

***

Song 7:10I am my beloved’s, and His desire is for me.

Song 6:3I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine.

From NetBible Song 6:3

  • * This is the second occurrence of the poetic refrain that occurs elsewhere in 2:16 and 7:11. The order of the first two cola are reversed from 2:16: “My beloved is mine and I am his” (2:16) but “I am my beloved’s and he is mine” (6:3). The significance of this shift depends on whether the parallelism is synonymous or climactic. This might merely be a literary variation with no rhetorical significance. On the other hand, it might signal a shift in her view of their relationship: Originally, she focused on her possession of him, now she focused on his possession of her.

Free to Choose

Galatians 5:13You, my brothers and sisters, were [indeed] called to freedom; only [do not let your] freedom be an incentive to your flesh and an opportunity or excuse [for selfishness], but through love you should humbly serve one another.

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. 15 If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
