Song of Songs

The Song of Songs, also known as Song of Solomon
and Canticles, is the most unique of the Wisdom books.
It is unique in it's abundantly glorious metaphorical
eschatology and grace.

Solomon, son of King David, was the prototype for
the Messiah, for God promised David that the
Messiah would come from his loins, and Solomon
was his heir to the throne.

However, for all his abundant gifts, Solomon
introduced idolatry and pagan ritual to Jerusalem
and by his grievous heresies, he was disowned
by God, accursed and stricken from the Holy
blood's legacy.

Mary was the great-great...grandchild of Nathan, son of
David, not Solomon. Solomon was forbidden to pass
on the sacred genes of David to the ultimate
heir to the throne of Judah, Jesus. Mary's husband,
Joseph, was the great-great...grandson of Solomon.
So, by legal rules of succession, Christ was
Solomon's legal ancestor through Joseph, but, the
literal biological ancestor of David through Nathan.

This explains the verse in Zechariah Zec 12:12 :

And the land shall mourn, every family
apart; the family of the house of David
apart, and their wives apart; the family
of the house of Nathan apart, and their
wives apart;

Mary's lineage in Luke 3

Luk 3:31 Which was [the son] of Melea, which was
[the son] of Menan, which was [the son]
of Mattatha, which was [the son] of Nathan,
which was [the son] of David,

Solomon epitomizes the dangers of excesses and
privilege. He was raised in David's harems, and
lacked the backbone and war skills of David. In
fact, he was sissified, even though that was
God's will for him.

Solomon excelled in knowledge and learning,
and had the prophetic office as well. He was
chosen to build the temple of YHWH, and he
faithfully accomplished this.

In Solomon's day, there was peace, but, at
a dear price. He married Pharaoh's
daughter, along with hundreds of other tribal
princesses, securing a family bond with all the
neighboring countries that ordinarily would
oppose Israel. This is a somber warning that
friendship with the world is enmity with God,
if it concerns compromising our own culture,
faith, while tolerating forbidden counterfeit
and hostile religions and beliefs.

Through his pride, lusts and debauchery,
he lost his way, and ultimately his light.
Being the wisest man in the world didn't
insure his mind would always be clear
when it came to Holy understanding.
Only God gives wisdom, and by depending
on his own finite intelligence, Solomon
was retarded, and by his arrogance and
rebellion, he blew it all.

His kingdom was split apart after his death, finally
to end altogether when idolatry and paganism
spread like wildfire throughout the kingdom.
A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Sin
expands, and is like weeds, spreading roots
through the underground, destroying all
the wheat and profitable seed.

A leader who compromises their principles
and oath of office, is not a leader but a traitor.
This reminds me of the United Kingdom, today,
where they have foolishly forfeited their own great
heritage, allowing enemies of freedom to prosper
and flourish, at the detriment of their own citizens.

This once great empire has abandoned the standard
of freedom, along with the generations of blood
shed for England's sons to be born free of tyranny.
The way the politically correct fools there have embraced
the Islamo-fascists, allowing these wolves in wolf
clothing, to blatantly establish fatal strongholds,
railing against the Western nations they occupy,
confounds all reason! They didn't even need to
bomb London, like the Nazis did, but, just walked in
and set up their own kingdom, usurping the natives
who were helpless to oppose the occupation since
their government allowed it.

In the space of a single generation, England's
fate has been established as Muslim, and
this is analogous to Solomon's embrace of
the profane, which guaranteed the destruction
of Jerusalem.

England will soon be utterly condemned, consumed
and destroyed by their strange and virulent strangers,
with their fanatical doomsday agenda and intolerant
beliefs, and unmitigated loathing of women and
non-believers in their evil and sanguine crusade.
It is already a non-Christian nation, despising
the cross. I love England, but, can never go back
there for fear of what is happening there. In fact,
I dreamt of their doomsday last night.

Solomon's kingdom was an early warning about
what happens when we throw our pearls to the swine,
rebel against our own beliefs, compromise to
accomodate the infidels, and water down the
Gospel of God. We see this in England, as they
twiddle their thumbs, yet watch with indifference,
as the soaring rise of the enemy's towering and
oppressive religions consume the land, even
while they brazenly vow to kill all those who do not
obey their harsh and consuming ways of worship.
It is the worst kind of slavery. Slavery of the soul,
in any other context than loving Christ, is damnation.

Solomon had built pagan shrines to please
his pagan wives, and this introduced the
false and conjoined faiths, polluting the sanctuary
and holiness of God's provenance. This was
the planting of the mystery religion, which
is represented at the end as the whore,
who wore the royal robes, but, in total
apostasy and blasphemy.

Solomon seemed to have repented later in
life, but, he acknowledged his own doom,
owing it to excessive ignorance, disobedience,
diverse lusts and pride due to stature and wealth.
He may have lost his soul completely, as seems
to be the case, but, God's grace is sublime. Despite his
hideous errors, Solomon still stands for a
prototype of the Messiah, and in this piece,
he is Christ, even though he speaks to Shulamite
as if she is his one and only, notwithstanding
his 999 other wives!

Even though Solomon's lifestyle was sinful
and rebellious, in divine irony, he still portrays
Christ, who weds not only those of his own
lineage, but, all manner of tribal women,
incorporating the family of mankind into
his bloodline.

Shulamite may have been literally Solomon's
niece, since she uses the term for uncle when
expressing her love for him. This can be
seen as prophetic as well, that his own
kinswoman was given this honor of
representing his one and only bride.
This is deeply symbolic for how Christ
will marry the true Jew, of his bloodline.
Mind you, this is not literal, but, symbolic
of who Christ refers to as Jews and his
bloodline lineage, which isn't necessarily
David's DNA, but, David's heart and
humility, to wit, all those who are clothed
with Christ's righteousness and covered
in his blood shed for our sins.

Every believer and lover of Christ
can feel and identify with Shulamite,
the bride, the betrothed of God in
Christ. She lives in us and in our
hearts as we pine for the Lord to
return and take us away, into the
paradise he's promised his beloved,
the Church. We may have to share
Christ, like Shulamite needed to
be tolerant of Solomon's 999 wives,
but, Christ is faithful and true to
each of us, individually. I daresay
that it would be unlikely Solomon
could accomplish this, so that's
why his romantic yearning is a
vehicle of prophecy, not sincerely
his state of mind.

Over the next week or so, I plan to
delve into this passionate piece. It
always revives my heart when I feel
abandoned in this cruel world, desperately
longing for Christ's embrace and

It 's glorious narrative is spoken by both
the bride and the groom, the Church and
Jesus Christ.

It begins with the bride's declaration of

Sgs 1:1 The song of songs, which [is] Solomon's.
(The bride)
Sgs 1:2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his
mouth: for thy love [is] better than wine.

Sgs 1:3 Because of the savour of thy good ointments
thy name [is as] ointment poured forth,
therefore do the virgins love thee.

Sgs 1:4 Draw me, we will run after thee: the king
hath brought me into his chambers: we
will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will
remember thy love more than wine: the
upright love thee.

Sgs 1:5 I [am] black, but comely, O ye daughters
of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the
curtains of Solomon.

Sgs 1:6 Look not upon me, because I [am] black,
because the sun hath looked upon me:
my mother's children were angry with me;
they made me the keeper of the vineyards;
[but] mine own vineyard have I not kept.

Sgs 1:7 Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth,
where thou feedest, where thou makest
[thy flock] to rest at noon: for why should
I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks
of thy companions?

(The groom)
Sgs 1:8 If thou know not, O thou fairest among
women, go thy way forth by the footsteps
of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the
shepherds' tents.

Sgs 1:9 I have compared thee, O my love, to a
company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots.

Sgs 1:10 Thy cheeks are comely with rows [of jewels],
thy neck with chains [of gold].

Sgs 1:11 We will make thee borders of gold with
studs of silver.

(The bride)
Sgs 1:12 While the king [sitteth] at his table,
my spikenard sendeth forth the smell

Sgs 1:13 A bundle of myrrh [is] my wellbeloved
unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt
my breasts.

Sgs 1:14 My beloved [is] unto me [as] a cluster
of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.

(The groom)
Sgs 1:15 Behold, thou [art] fair, my love; behold,
thou [art] fair; thou [hast] doves' eyes.

Sgs 1:16 Behold, thou [art] fair, my beloved, yea,
pleasant: also our bed [is] green.

Sgs 1:17 The beams of our house [are] cedar,
[and] our rafters of fir.

Hebrew for H1730 Dowd=uncle=love

Dowd is the word used for love. It is
the first indication of the esoteric nature
of love in Song of Solomon. It is not
erotic or platonic love, but, the kind
of deep affection of an older male
relative towards his sibling's child.
This is even more veiled in meaning
when referring to Shulamite's love
for her betrothed, since Christ had
no legal heirs, no sons or daughters
but biological nieces and nephews
through his brothers and sisters.
We are encompassed in that bloodline,
and our deep affection for Christ is
not the same as our spousal love,
which is often blurred with sexual
desire, not unconditional love.
The love of a favorite uncle is not
like loving or sexually desiring a mate.
It is the affection that isn't confused
with physical desire. It is the fondness
that has no strings or subsequent
deceptions. It is the closest thing to
our familial love and yearning for
Christ, our older brother, or the
older brother of our parents. It's
a deeply symbolic word, dowd,
and has it's precise meaning and

It always amuses me when so-called
religious scholars use SOS to endorse
marital bliss as holy, since it is so far
off the mark. Those who believe this
is a carnal declaration of a man's love
for his wife need to study the Hebrew
for their souls to be blessed. It has
nothing to do with sexual love.

In Solomon's Proverbs, Chapter 7,
a parralel portion of verse is dedicated to the
antithesis of the bride of Christ, and
is not too thinly disguised as the harlot
and false church/doctrine/ whore who
masquerades as the bride. The use of
the word, "Dowd", is again applied for
love. The similarities no accident:

Pro 7:5 That they may keep thee from the
strange woman, from the stranger
[which] flattereth with her words.

Pro 7:6 For at the window of my house I
looked through my casement,

Pro 7:7 And beheld among the simple
ones, I discerned among the youths,
a young man void of understanding,

Pro 7:8 Passing through the street near her
corner; and he went the way to her house,

Pro 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the
black and dark night:

Pro 7:10 And, behold, there met him a woman
[with] the attire of an harlot, and subtil
of heart.

Pro 7:11 (She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet
abide not in her house:

Pro 7:12 Now [is she] without, now in the
streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

Pro 7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him,
[and] with an impudent face said unto him,

Pro 7:14 [I have] peace offerings with me;
this day have I payed my vows.

Pro 7:15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee,
diligently to seek thy face, and I have found

Pro 7:16 I have decked my bed with coverings
of tapestry, with carved [works], with
fine linen of Egypt.

Pro 7:17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh,
aloes, and cinnamon.

Pro 7:18 Come, let us take our fill of LOVE (dowd)
until the morning: let us solace ourselves with

Pro 7:19 For the goodman [is] not at home, he is
gone a long journey:

Pro 7:20 He hath taken a bag of money with him,
[and] will come home at the day appointed.

Pro 7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him
to yield, with the flattering of her lips she
forced him.

Pro 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox
goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the
correction of the stocks;

Pro 7:23 Till a dart strike through his liver;
as a bird hasteth to the snare, and
knoweth not that it [is] for his life.

"Thy love is better than wine." This is an
intoxicating line. Everyone who has fallen
in love recognizes the same effects as if
being altered by a chemical. Love makes
us high in the best sense.

Wine in a biblical context has duality
and layers of subtle meanings. Drunkeness
is a lapse of morality, but, wine in moderation
is cleansing to the body, uplifting to the spirit,
and a reward for a good life. This metaphor
is both obvious and literal, with obvious
secondary spiritual connotations.

Wine-bibber is a code for heretic, drunk
on the influence of another gospel. But
wine can also mean the joy of loving God.
In the negative, wine obfuscates the
senses, so that the deviant who follows
after a false religion is deceived.

Every believer in Christ has experienced
the ecstasy of loving him, when it feels
like being high. In fact, having experienced
both drugs and alcohol intoxication, I have
never experienced anything more thrilling
than the ecstasy of loving Jesus Christ,
when in the Holy Spirit, our praise transports
us to another realm where we are singularly
important and beloved of him. How
intoxicating it is to feel important enough
to be adored by God and to adore him.

Wine in this sense is synonomous with
Holy love of Christ and JOY. His love
is genuinely better than wine.

Solomon uses the word "Ointment" in conjunction
with "Name"... Shemen and Shem.

The Name of God is Holy and Ineffable. Some
Jews believe it is too holy to be uttered. Ointment
and oil are two physical terms used to sometimes
represent the Holy Spirit, the 3rd aspect of the
Holy Godhead. Christ's Name is as holy as
God the Father's YHWH, and this play on
words has a distinct purpose to indicate that
he is prophecizing in the role of his father
David's inevitable heir, the seed of Mary
his ancestor and the promised Messiah of
the Hebrew nation and of the world.

It is through the anointing (ointment)
of the Holy Spirit that the NAME of
Holy God is discerned.

Ointment-Shemen (Notice how it contains
the root word "shem" for " NAME"...)

Ointment is synonymous with anointing,
blessing and healing.

Ceremonially, this has many levels of
spiritual meaning. Kings and priest were
anointed with the specific holy anointing,
and those about to receive special sanctification
were also symbolically anointed. The sick
also received anointing with ointment.
All of these literal uses are also symbolic
of salvation of Christ. In Christ, we are
made well. In Christ, we are anointed
with the priesthood, and with his
royal seal as Priest-King, likened to
the order of Melchizadec, the King of
Salem who brought Abraham victuals
and blessings in the land which would
be his ancestor's and ultimately Christ's

Exd 30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy
, an ointment compound after the art
of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

Ointments consisted of very expensive
ingredients and fragrances. It was
a luxury, to say the least.

Ointment is used as a symbol of
blessing, as in David's Psalm 133.
This 3 verse Psalm is written
in degrees, meaning that each
verse starts with a consecutive
Hebrew letter/number, analogous
to 1,2,3 and A,B, C. These psalms
have their own mystical meanings,
usually in layers. Psalm 133 is pretty
straightforward though exalting
the unity of the brethren, comparing
it to the expensive ointments of
the priesthood's anointing:

Psa 133:1[[A Song of degrees of David.]]
Behold, how good and how
pleasant [it is] for brethren
to dwell together in unity!

Psa 133:2
[It is] like the precious ointment
upon the head, that ran down
upon the beard, [even] Aaron's
beard: that went down to the
skirts of his garments;

Psa 133:3
As the dew of Hermon, [and as the dew]
that descended upon the mountains of Zion:
for there the LORD commanded the
blessing, [even] life for evermore.

In Proverbs, ointment is representative of joy
of brotherly love.

Pro 27:9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart:
so [doth] the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

In Ecclesiastes, Solomon ruefully states
that a good name is like ointment. At the
late stage of his life, he is cognizant of his past
sins and imparts this esoteric wisdom.

Ecc 7:1 A good name (shem)[is] better than precious
ointment (shemen)
; and the day of death than
the day of one's birth.

Solomon also writes in Ecclesiastes:

Ecc 9:8 Let thy garments be always white; and
let thy head lack no ointment.

This is also parallel to the Levitical priesthood
and anointing of the Holy Spirit. When we are
clothed in God's righteousness, our garments
are represented as white linen, without spot
or stain. Here, the symbolism stands out as
ointment being a spiritual anointing of the

Ecc 10:1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the
apothecary to send forth a stinking savour
so doth] a little folly him that is in reputation
for wisdom [and] honour.

In Ecclesiastes, Solomon woefully compares
the purest medicinal ointment, both
precious, expensive and healing, to a vile
concoction that flies infect and infest.
These are more precise spiritual representations.

Flies are symbolic for death, for the
maggot eggs that are laid in and consume
dead flesh, as well as the contemporary 1000 B.C.
persona of Satan as Beelzebub, the Lord of the

The comparison between a rotten
ointment of death and his own folly
and rebellion is indicative of this
constant duality of Solomon's symbolism.

A study of Proverbs, SOS and Eccles.
reveals his use of double standards
to expemplify mirror images of the
holy vs. the profane. He knew much
about these extremes and has a gift
in expressing them as a great prophet
of the era.

Even with all his gifts, he had
introduced the mystery religion to
Jerusalem, married pagan women and
allowed their religious icons to stand
beside the holy temple and sanctity
of God's Temple. Like dead flies rotting
in the precious ointment, his false
counterfeit religion turned something
valuable into something worthless
and disgusting. His own good name
would forever be blotted out by
the holy ones. He may have gotten
redemption based on his latter day
confessions and realization of how
far he fell, but, he caused irreparable
damage to the Jews, which caused
the curse to persist for all generations.

200-300 years later, Isaiah, the great
prophet announces the kingdom of
Jacob (Israel) is as putrid as that rotten
ointment, and depicts the nation as Jacob
covered with leprous scabs and wounds
without anointing for sanctification or
medicinally. It is a terminally ill land
that was about to be judged because of
their idolatry.

Isa 1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head
[there is] no soundness in it; [but] wounds, and bruises,
and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither
bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

Song of Sol 1:3 is paired with SOS 1:12
Sgs 1:12While the king [sitteth] at his table,
my spikenard sendeth forth the
smell thereof.

It is through these two verses, 1:3 and 1:12,
which prophetically relate to Christ's anointing
by the prostitute Mary, sister of Lazarus and Martha,
who poured the ointment on him to the chagrine
of the hypocrites who judged Christ for letting
a prostitute touch him and waste expensive ointment.

What holy man would let a prostitute do that?
Christ saw the hypocrites as the unclean ones,
not the sinners who loved him and sought

It is so very profound because it puts Mary into
the role of Shulamite, the bride. She was forgiven
and blessed for eternity. Christ promised her that
her legacy would be recorded, because she was
forgiven for her sins by this act of love and
deep faith. She bathed his feet in tears, using
her own hair to dry them. Her repentence
is perfect.

Folklore turns this Mary into Magdalene,
but, this is a different woman. Mary M. also
represents Shulamite, the bride, insofar as
her mourning by his grave was like a widow
grieving, and he appeared to her first, when
risen. Through the forgiveness, salvation
and then sanctification of these two Marys,
Christ created a new paradigm for all
women in Judaism, who before Christ
were despised and even forbidden from
learning how to read.

Christ was a revolution, even though his
blessing on the most despised gender would
be soon lost again, the world reverting to
its subjugation and evil treatment of
women. This is something that will
cause the greatest to fall, because the
sins against women, since time began,
exceed any other oppression, slavery,
and injustice. Even today, with opportunities
and a woman running for President, our
world degrades women by promoting
fake breasts and pornography as a
standard. Women over 40 are made
to feel like criminals, and women are
more disposable in today's world
than in any time in history.

For all our advancements in science,
education, and civilization, our present
world is the most uncivilized since time
began. There has never been more
female and child slavery, torture and
cruelty. The cries are echoing before
a holy and merciful God.

He will avenge.

It's easy to dismiss a sinner as being destined
for Hell, but, Christianity is comprised of
such sinners who are forgiven, even glorified.

King David, a man after God's own heart,
was nonetheless a murderer. Solomon, a
man of peace, was instead an infidel and
traitor to the faith. God will forgive those
who beckon and yearn for him, not those
who feel justified by the few good deeds
they do, and feel that they do not need
salvation, or believe that they are sinners.

How many Christians, incorporated into
the dead and corrupt world church system
will be stunned to see the gates closed for
them. They will never believe it now, for
they think they are perfect already, not
sinners. Yet, the most unforgiveable
blasphemy is changing the holy ordinances
and making up things, keeping the traditions
of paganism by calling them Christian.

This is key to the parable of and enigma
of Christ and his bride, and the antichrist,
the god of this world, and the false church,
the whore. Ironically, the whore of Babylon
is not the sinner, or satanic cultures, but, the
world church, who mingled world religions
in an ecclesiastical stew of putrid and
unpardonable sin.

Things are not as they seem. Mary, sister
of Lazarus, an immoral woman by the
standards of that day, may have been
a temple prostitute, like Tamar, the
matriarch of Judah posed as to seduce
Judah, her father-in-law in the saucy
story of Judah in Genesis. She made an
unlikely matriarch. The wisdom of man
would reject such a harlot, yet she
was holy because she followed in faith.

She was not the only dissolute woman in
the family tree. Rahab the prostitute who
hid Joshua and the spies of Jericho,
was also incorporated into this
lineage. Their behavior was ungodly by
all our understanding, but, their
hearts were contrite and seeking
the love of God, desperate to serve God
and to make amends. The gratitude and
love of a sinner saved is far more
abundant than a self-righteous hypocrite
who believes they are perfect already.

The greatest irony in the holy order
is that it isn't troubling to God to
extend salvation to the greatest sinners,
because that's what He's all about. The
irony is that those who appear respectable
are sometimes the biggest hypocrites, like
the Pharisees and Saducees in Christ's day.

In our world today, humanism
and the self-serving good works
that receive accolades from men
are not always received by God
as such. When we do good for our
fellow man, that's what we are
supposed to do. How does that
benefit or affect God?

God is concerned with those who
seek HIM, not praise from Him. He
seeks those who praise HIM, not the
other way around. He seeks the lost
sheep, the ones who know they are
lost and seek forgiveness and a
new path of righteousness.

Shulamite, Solomon's bride, depicted
as the bride of Christ, is us if we are
able to humble ourselves and seek
him, hungering and thirsting for
his righteousness and beauty, desiring
his Name as an ointment to bless us,
and heal us.

The real prostitute is the corrupted
form of Judaism that infected both
the Church and the descendants of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses.
Many Jews of today still reject Christ,
even after the dispensation of the
grafting in and blossoming of the
fig tree has occurred.

To understand the mysteries of God
we need to abandon our own understanding
of the world and even of God. We need to
let the Holy Spirit minister to us as
the helpless critters we are. We need to
be humble, trembling at the greatness
of an omnipotent and Almighty God
who rules over all of His Creation.

We need to understand Mary, sister
of Lazarus, who is depicted prophetically
as Shulamite, and whose role in the
Gospels is revealed:

Mat 26:6Now when Jesus was in Bethany,
in the house of Simon the leper,
Mat 26:7
There came unto him a woman
having an alabaster box of very
precious ointment, and poured
it on his head, as he sat [at meat].

Luk 7:37
And, behold, a woman in the city,
which was a sinner, when she knew
that [Jesus] sat at meat in the Pharisee's
house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

Luk 7:38
And stood at his feet behind [him]
weeping, and began to wash his feet
with tears, and did wipe [them] with
the hairs of her head, and kissed his
feet, and anointed [them] with the
Jhn 11:1Now a certain [man] was sick,
[named] Lazarus, of Bethany, the
town of Mary and her sister Martha.

Jhn 11:2
(It was [that] Mary which anointed
the Lord with ointment, and wiped
his feet with her hair, whose brother
Lazarus was sick.)

Sgs 1:4 Draw me, we will run after thee: the king
hath brought me into his chambers: we
will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will
remember thy love more than wine: the
upright love thee.
