The Secret Place of the Stairs

November 12, 2015

Song of Solomon 2:14 KJV … O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

From NetBible Song 2:14

  • clefts[02288] = hiding place, place of concealment, safety, refuge
  • secret place[05643] = hiding place, shelter, cover
  • stairs[04095] = steep or inaccessible place, pathway

What is this secret place of the steep stairway?

The secret place is in the cleft of the Rock. Remember Moses? Where he asked to see the Lord’s glory(Ex 33)? The Lord told him to stand on the Rock. Then the Lord put him in the cleft and covered him with His hand. The Rock is Christ(1Co 10:4). The cleft in the Rock is the secret place of the Most High, beneath the shadow of His wings(Ps 91).  It’s interesting that the name Most High associated with this secret place is from a root meaning to climb or ascend(see below). This is a place that can only be reached through Jesus Christ – you can’t get there on your own.

Psalm 40:1-3 AMPC … I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He brought me up out of a horrible pit [of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock, steadying my footsteps and establishing my path. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear [with great reverence] And will trust confidently in the Lord.

Psalm 91:1 AMPC … He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

From NetBible Ps 91:1

  • Most High[05945] = sovereign one, sovereign King, elevated above all
    *from [05927] = to go up, ascend, climb

Glory From the Cleft

November 10, 2015

Pour forth, pour forth –Ps 119:171
From the cleft –Sos 2:14
Living water pure and clear –Ezek 47
From the Rock –Is 48:21;Ps 78:16;1Co 10:4
Faithful and true –Rev 19:11
Word of God –Rev 19:13
Pour forth, pour forth
Before the throne –Rev 19:4-5
With the voice of many waters –Rev 14:2
The roar of a great multitude –Rev 19:1
Glory from the cleft –Ex 33:22
Pour forth, pour forth
RENEW! –Ro 12:1-2

Romans 12:1-2 AMPC … I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

***

The Lord’s glory is revealed by His voice of many waters(Rev 1:15, Ezek 43:2). His bride in His likeness has the same voice(Rev 19:5-7).

Notice that the Bride’s voice of many waters is heard after the command to praise(Rev 19:4-5)! It’s after this that the King of Glory is revealed in heaven which has been opened(Rev 19:11).

=> high praise, the new songs come from being taught the Lord’s word by the Holy Spirit in the cleft, and the dove sings from the cleft(Sos 2:14)!

His glory not only is seen from, but pours forth from the cleft. It’s the living water pouring from the temple(Ezek 47) – ankle deep, knee deep(getting deeper!) — enough to swim in. This living water also pours from the cleft – the temple – before the throne.

As we enter the secret place – the cleft – this living water and glory pour forth – for not only us but others to drink. It’s interesting how the new song seems to be related to high praise and this pouring forth from the cleft(see below).
🙂
There is a condition though — we need to be separate from the world – we can’t be entangled. We need to make a conscious decision to do this, and then we will be RENEWED and know what the Lord’s will is for us!

Psalm 119:171 NKJV … My lips shall utter praise, For You teach me Your statutes.

From NetBible Ps 119:171

  • utter[05042] = flow, pour forth, burst forth, bubble up
  • praise[08416] = song, high praise, adoration of the Lord
    * from hala[01984] = shine, boast, glory, celebrate

.

From NetBible Ps 149:1-2
Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, praise[08416] Him in the assembly of His saints! 2 Let Israel rejoice in Him, their Maker; let Zion’s children triumph and be joyful[01523] in their King!

In the Cleft

January 15, 2011

Psalm 91:1-4 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” … Surely He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth will be your shield and buckler.

Hide me in the cleft
In the cleft of the Rock
In the secret place of the Most High
Help me to abide.

My hiding place
A shelter from the storm
In the shadow of His wings
My God, in Him I will trust!

Streams in the desert
Drink from the river of delight
The fountain of life
Sing for joy
In the shadow of His wings
An everlasting crown
Upheld
In the cleft of the Rock
The desert rose blooms
The dove sings.

-Ps 91:1-2; Isa 32:2; Ps 36:7-9; Ps 63:7-8; Isa 35:1,6,10; Song 2:14

… I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert. … I give waters in the wilderness and streams in the desert to give drink to My chosen people, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim My praise. -Isa 43:19-21
