We’re beginning a journey through the Song of Solomon. It’s a fascinating portion of Scripture that is rarely discussed.
Song of Songs – a relationship between Jesus / Yeshua and His bride
The approach we are taking is the idea that it is a depiction between Yeshua and his bride. When you see the Song of Solomon from that perspective, I think you could say that it is breathtaking for a number of reasons.
Let him smother me with kisses—his Spirit-kiss divine.Song of Solomon 1:2 TPT
So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest wine!
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.SOS 1:2 KJV
“Let Him Kiss”
In the King James version, the first words in this verse are, “Let him kiss”, “Let him kiss”.
In the Hebrew text the phrase “let him kiss” is translated from one single word; Strongs #H5401.
It’s an interesting word that is translated with a couple of different emphases. One meaning is it speaks of fastening together. You can obviously apply that pretty easily to a kiss pretty easily to a “kiss”.
Another meaning besides “let Him kiss”
However, its use is not confined to a “kiss”. Rather it speaks of a connection either literally or figuratively as one thing would connect to another.
Another way this Hebrew word is used it to communicate the “equipping with weapons”.
The exact same word that’s translated into “Let him Kiss” is translated as ” they were “armed with bows” in 1 Chronicles 12:2. It is used similarly in other places.
It’s not only allowing, it’s commanding
There’s also another aspect of this word or phrase “let him kiss”. It’s not only a request, but it’s almost a command. For example, one might say, “let the dog out”. Can you see how “let the dog out” and “let him kiss” could be expressed as a command?
So my point that I’m making here is that there is a desire, an urgency, not only in allowing; but if you want to experience that love relationship that you can have with Yeshua, then there must also be purposeful desire.
There has to be a longing, a wanting, a pursuing. So many times in Western, American “church”, apathy and passivity rule. In many cases, “going to church, sitting in the pew, and paying the tithes is really all that is expected. Historically, some institutions have not only not encouraged people to read their Bibles but if they even owned one they would be murdered.
Of course, that is absolutely, positively contrary to the word of God itself. Apostle Paul told Timothy to “study to show yourself approved”.
Connecting with God is a general theme emphasized throughout the Bible
First Peter 5:14 says to greet one another with the Holy Kiss. I believe that the message that Peter is saying here is to greet one another with a holy connection: Holy unity, you might say.
Matthew 11:28 says “come to me all that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. “Come to me”: Again, this idea of intimately connecting with Yeshua is expressed all through the scriptures.
Isaiah 45:22- 25 “Look unto me and be saved”. I am condensing that verse for our purposes here.
Over in John 7:37 the theme continues: “In that day, the great day of the feast, Yeshua cried saying If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink”. Again, the exact same idea of connecting that we see in Song of Solomon.
In John 4:10 we see one of my favorite Bible stories: The woman at the well. She had a rough time in life. In a loving, caring way Yeshua said to her “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that says to you, Give me a drink. You would have asked him and he would have given you living water.
All through the Bible we see people persevering to connect with the Messiah.
Why are people drawn to the Messiah?
There is a reason for that. There is a reason that people feel drawn to Yeshua. They sense the life that He has to offer. They open their eyes to see Melchizedek: the Priest unto Yahweh for the Kingdom of God.
You can meet Him too. Just reach out and connect with Him… He’s waiting.
