The Bride’s final intercession

PhotobucketThis post concludes our study of the Song of Solomon.  I will be using notes from Mike Bickle again today.  Look for a future post about what is coming up in January!

You who dwell in the gardens, the companions listen for your voice—Let Me hear it! (Songs 8:13)

Jesus’ last words to the Bride commend her effectiveness in serving the Church. He names her, “You who dwell in the gardens” to affirm that she is still dwelling in the midst of God’s garden serving His people instead of retreating in selfish isolation. She did not

Living Before His Eyes

PhotobucketAgain, I am so sorry for not posting my study last week.  Life has been busy.  We will be wrapping up our study of the Song of Solomon next week.  I want to thank you all for hanging in with me for these last 24 weeks!

The Bride’s Final Intercession

PhotobucketThe Bride is now filled with the fire of God.  She is confident in who she is.  As we continue on in Song of Solomon, Chapter 8, we see the Bride’s heart of intercession for the Church.  (*I will be taking this material almost exclusively from Mike Bickle’s Song of Solomon Study.  His copyright is the right to copy.)

We have a little sister, and she has no breasts. What shall we do for our sister in the day when she is spoken for? If she is a wall, we will build upon her a battlement of silver; and if she is a door, we will enclose her with boards of cedar (Song 8:8–9).
