The Bride at the Door
Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to my beloved; And my hands dripped with myrrh, and my fingers with liquid myrrh, On the handles of the bolt.


Here the Shulamite, is awakened and is looking out the doors for her beloved. The doors are currently open for her to seek Him out. Her hands dripping with myrrh are symbolic of the struggles in her heart to be transformed .
She is preparing herself for her "Beloved".

"Come and Blow On My Garden"


Awake, O north wind; And come, thou south; Blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, And eat his precious fruits.

The King Blessing His Bride


Aaronic Blessing
Numbers 6:24-26 New International Version (NIV)
24 “The LORD bless you
and keep you;
25 the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”

Song of Songs 2:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Look! There he stands behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
peering through the lattice.

 Here (King Jesus) looks at His Beloved Bride through the spaces between his fingers, representing the lattice. His face is shining on hers, an open portal to heaven, light streaming through His nail pierced hands, He kneels before her presenting this perfect gift... she marvels at her Beloved.
Unlike a curse... A Blessing cannot be reversed...

Persecution


New Living Translation (©2007)

Song of Solomon 3:2

So I said to myself, "I will get up and roam the city, searching in all its streets and squares. I will search for the one I love." So I searched everywhere but did not find him.





World English Bible

Song of Solomon 5:7

The watchmen who go about the city found me. They beat me. They bruised me. The keepers of the walls took my cloak away from me.
 
 


 
 
 6) I looked for him, but I didn’t find him.
I called him, but he didn’t answer. 7) The watchmen who go about the city found me.
They beat me.
They bruised me.
The keepers of the walls took my cloak away from me. 8) I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem,

If you find my beloved,
that you tell him that I am faint with love.



Have you ever searched for God and felt beat up by the very people assigned to protect you, the watchmen?...
 then this is for you...
keep looking...
He wants to be found!
