Trail of Seeds

Jeremiah 31:3“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness{unfailing love} I have drawn you”.
.
Song 1:2-4 … Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you. Draw me away after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.” “We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. The upright love you.”
.

I was thinking of being drawn away by the Lord Jesus again. This prompted me to look up the word “draw” in the above verses. One of the meanings for draw is to trail seed as if sowing! Remember the Sower Parable?

I love this image of Jesus scattering the seeds of His word in a trail, to draw His bride after Him. The Bride is so drawn through His words of love that she “runs swiftly” – “follows hard” after Him!

.

Psalm 63:8My soul follows hard after{clings to} You; Your right hand upholds me securely.

Draw Me Away!

August 15, 2013

Song 1:2-4 … Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you. Draw me away after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.” “We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. The upright love you.”

Jeremiah 31:3“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness{unfailing love} I have drawn you”.

Psalm 63:2-3 , 7-8… I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. … Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul follows hard after You; Your right hand upholds me.

Draw Me Away!

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

For you have drawn{loved} me with an everlasting love
A love more delightful than wine.

You’ve stolen{captured} my heart
I’ve tasted and seen
And now I run after thee.

The above scripture and song were on my mind again. From the Word Study below we see that the cry “Draw me away!” is figure of speech, a cry to the Lord to be led or captured in His “cords of love”.

  • It is the cry of one who wants to be a willing captive of the Lord’s love, His goodness.
  • It’s the cry of one who has beheld the glory of the Lord in His sanctuary.
  • It’s the cry of one who has tasted and seen that
    • The Lord’s love is more delightful than wine
    • The Lord’s love is better than life
    • The Lord’s love is everlasting and unfailing

It is a desperate cry, an eager desire to experience the Lord’s love once again. A desire to follow hard and run with enough determination to catch the Lord who is being pursued. Once the Lord is “caught” – O what rejoicing beneath His wings!

  • Spin, leap with joy
  • in gladness shine with joy
  • Sing with lips that glorify the Lord!

The Lord reminded me of the best reason to cry out “Draw me away”! The Lord promises to make this place of the King’s chamber, His sanctuary, this place beneath His wings, the throne, the place He rests His feet – GLORIOUS!

Isaiah 60:13The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, The cypress, the pine, and the box tree together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I will make the place of My feet glorious.

.

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

To the place of Your feet
What glorious rest  -Isa 11:10,4:5;Ps 66:2
O how I adore You LORD!

From NetBible Song 1:4;Jer 31:3

  • Draw[04900] = to lead
    *The verb מָשַׁךְ (mashakh, “draw”) is a figurative expression (hypocatastasis) which draws an implied comparison between the physical acting of leading a person with the romantic action of leading a person in love. Elsewhere it is used figuratively of a master gently leading an animal with leather cords (Hos 11:4) and of a military victor leading his captives (Jer 31:3). The point of comparison might be that the woman wants to be the willing captive of the love of her beloved, that is, a willing prisoner of his love.
  • run after[07323] = to eagerly hurry, chase
  • rejoice[01523] = spin, circle around(dance, leap) in joy
  • be glad[08055] = be merry, to brighten up, shine in joy
  • everlasting love[0160] = God’s love to His people
  • lovingkindness[02617] = unfailing love, goodness, mercy, kindness, faithfulness

From NetBible Ps 63:8

  • follow hard[01692] = a determination to cling, cleave, be joined, to run after with determination to overtake and capture

From NetBible Is 60:13

  • sanctuary[04720] = temple, tabernacle, sacred holy place
    Ezek 43:7, where the Lord’s throne is called the “place of the soles of my feet.”
    Isa 66:1, the Lord’s throne is where He rests His feet – He rests/abides
    “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?”

Unless the Father Draws

September 10, 2010

John 6:44 AMP No one is able to come to Me unless the Father Who sent Me attracts and draws him and gives him the desire to come to Me, and [then] I will raise him up [from the dead] at the last day.

I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness{unfailing, faithful love}. -Jer 31:3

I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them. -Hos 11:4

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you.

Draw me after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.”

“We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. The upright love you.” –Song 1:2-4

John 12:32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.

From Netbible John 6:44; 12:32
draw: helkuo[1670]
to impel by a powerful impulse
The term here expresses the supernatural love of God of Christ which goes out to all(12:32) – but without which no one can come(6:44). The apparent contradiction shows that both the election and universality of grace must be taken seriously; the compulsion is not automatic.

Come Up Hither

December 30, 2009

Revelation 19:4-9 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: “Amen, Hallelujah!”
Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints.
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”

Revelation 21:9-11 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come hither, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

Come up hither!
See the bride, the Lamb’s wife
The holy city set on a hill -Mt 5:14-16
A great and high mountain
On the mount of the Lord it shall be seen{provided}! -Gen 22:14

The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. -Rev 21:23

Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. -Dan 12:3

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. -Prov 4:18

For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. -2 Cor 4:6

Beloved
I AM making you a strong mountain
My city set on My holy hill
A light shining bright for all to see
I AM building up Zion -Ps 102:16
My glory revealed in your midst
The glory of God in the face of Christ. -2 Cor 3:18

I have loved you with an everlasting love;
… I have drawn you with loving-kindness. –Jer 31:3

May He kiss me with the kisses of His mouth! For your love is better than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. Therefore the virgins love you. Draw me away! Let us run together! Let the king bring me into his chambers. We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine. How right they are to adore you! –Song 1:2-4

Draw me, draw me away Lord
Up into Your holy hill, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High
That I may adore You
Oh to taste Your love and behold Your face!

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. -Ps 27:4-6
