Song of Solomon and Isaiah
My coffee is hot and I'm rocking away in my chair. I'm excited because it is Sunday!! I love Sundays! I've been in Song of Solomon and Isaiah today. Here are my thoughts on a few verses:
1) Jesus is the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. This is what S of S 2:1 tells us! The Song of Solomon is a love story that also tells us the love between the church and our Savior. With that in mind it is a beautiful thing.
2) A Word about LOVE- Song of S 8:7 says: "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned." Love is just that great! What a beautiful verse in describing love. We ought to have that love for our LORD, our mates, our children, our loved ones, and fellow Christians!!
3) SAD, BUT TRUE!- Isaiah 5:14 says "hell hath enlarged herself"... It is sad, but true that while this world is getting more and more populated, that hell hath enlarged herself because a smaller percentage is being saved! This is why we must go out on a regular basis to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He wants all to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, but that is not happening!! We need to go, not expect them to come! Here is another verse: Isaiah 14:9 "Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming." Hell hath enlarged herself, and she is coming in the unsaved direction!!
4) ONE OF THESE DAYS!!- Isaiah 17:7 says: "At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel." Wow!! Sounds like at that day "every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess". I'm excited about being there at that day!
Well, so much for today, May God bless you richly! Pastor Mike Mutchler
