Preaching, Teaching, and Notes

Behind our Wall

The book of the Song of Solomon is a picture of the love relationship between the King (Christ Jesus) and the individual believer.

Song of Solomon 2:8-9 “The voice of my beloved!  Behold,  he cometh leaping upon the mountains,  and skipping upon the hills.

                                            My beloved is like a roe or a young hart:  behold,  he standeth behind our wall,  he looketh forth at the windows,  showing himself through the lattice.”

The Lord comes,  nothing hinders Him coming to us—not mountains or hills.

Pictured as a roe or a young hart (deer),  because He can bound away at any moment.  

The Lord comes, and we hear His Word,  His Voice.  He comes leaping over difficulties, and skipping over daily problems.  

He is showing how He is ready and able to do in my life.

I am thrilled to hear His voice.    How wonderful that He is interested in me, and my problems.

He comes and stands before the lattice at the window.   I can see Him, yet I am suddenly aware that there is a wall between us.  I had not noticed it before.

This wall is our Spiritual experience up to date.  

(I know when I was born again, the Lord showed me I was to pray.     I must tell you, most of my prayers were more like telling God what to do,  then prayers;  but as I went along, He showed me promises to claim,  and how to approach His throne in prayer, for myself and others.)

They were good things when I was a babe in Christ;  but now Christ Jesus is calling me on,  to grow in grace.  

To come out with Him, and leap the difficulties which come to me, with Him. ( And by doing so, we can show others His grace.)

To come out with Him and skip the everyday problems, so we can have the victorious faith which He has for us.

Song of Solomon 2:10 “My beloved spake, and said unto me,   Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

To have what is next,  we always have to leave what is now.

To leave the better you have attained,  for the best that He has for you.

He has already shown that He is able to surmount any of the obstacles that stand before us.   

Will we go out and go on with Him?

It is a love relationship,  that says,  “Come with Me”.     

Are you ready for the next step with Jesus?  

It is always to answer His call to “Come.”    Come and get the more grace I have for you,  for this day,  and onward.

2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you;  that ye,  always having all sufficiency in all things,  may abound to every good work.”

But we must:  “Come away,  with Him.”
