2 The SoS shows the development of a romantic-intimate relationship between the bridegroom & his bride.
a We’ll be enlightened, challenged, drawn closer to Him.
b And shows us how, the methods & means He uses to accomplish this.
B This teaching applies to those who have fully surrender their lives to Him, been “touched” in some measure... hungry for more!
1 Those who understand God is not looking for an employee/employer relationship with us.
a Do what He asks, when He asks, where He asks... at the end of the week, pay me.
b You owe me!
2 He desires an intimate love relationship; Bridegroom & Bride.
a In the marriage relationship there is a flow.
b I’ve never got a paycheck, a penny from being married - blessed, happy, content... yes!
3 He is our head, we are His body... flow as one.
C We get jacked about “going, doing” and what He’s looking for is “flowing” in unity with Him.
1 John 17:21 (NASB) 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
a We are to be so in unity with Jesus that when people see us, they see Jesus.
aa If Jesus said it, it must be achievable!
bb John 14:9-10 (NASB) 9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.
The Son moved in flow with the Father!
b In the marriage relationship between Christ & us, there is such a unity/oneness that He will be able to reveal Himself through us.
2 Galatians 2:20 (NASB) 20 "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
a The “I” will has been put to death and all that remains is “thy” will.
b In the beginning there was on the “thy” will. (Will of God)
aa All creation submitted to His will, resounded the glory of God in obedience/harmony.
bb Isaiah 14:13-14 (NASB) 13 "But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. 14 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'
Then Satan rose & said “I will... I will”
cc Now 3 wills, I will & thy will: They run contrary to one another! Image
