Mike Bickle wrote in his Studies for God School 2007: Understanding this Song helps us identify the issues that God is specifically dealing with in our lives. It equips us to discern what God is doing in the different seasons in our lives……People often find themselves in two different places in this Song in the seasons of their life.  I revisit the same place in the Song again and again.

In the Month of ELUL, it is a time in history when the King would come off his throne and go to where the people were, in the fields and wherever they were working.  In verses 9-11 we see the King affirming his love for the Maiden, the same as Jesus wants to affirm His love for the Bride of Christ.

Songs 1:9, “ I have compared you, my love, to my filly among Pharaoh’s chariots.”

Pharaoh’s war chariots had the best and most trained horses in the world. King Solomon, was the wealthiest man in the world and he bought many of Pharaoh’s horses. A horse is a symbol of strength, power and denotes swiftness. In her flesh we felt weak, but Jesus sees us in strength to lift us out of our weaknesses.

Song 1:10, “Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, your neck with chains of gold.”

Cheeks speak of emotions (blush, dimples). The emotions of anger, joy or sadness are expressed in the cheeks.

Ornaments speak of her character. Ornaments are created by the skillful work of an artist. Jesus is the artist that makes us beautiful. When we have walked closely with Jesus, we are not concerned about the little things that normally cause us anger and sadness. He lifts us up and gives us ‘beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness’ (Is 61:3)

The Neck speaks of our will (stiff neck, stubborn). Our neck turns the head as it chooses which way to go. A neck without a necklace signified a stubborn neck. But this maiden has chains of gold! Gold is purified by fire. The maiden has purified her will to submit entirely to the King.

Song 1:11,  “We will make you ornaments of gold with studs of silver.”

Some translations of this verse say it is the Daughters of Jerusalem, the immature believers, who are speaking to the Maiden. But I like Watchman Nee’s interpretation. “We will” is the King’s promise, and in the plural ‘we’ the Holy Spirit is making reference to the Trinity. (Gen 1:26, ‘let US make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness.’)

The maiden’s ornaments of Gold speaks of the divine character, with the works of the flesh burned and purified with fire (Mal 3:1-4; Rev 3:18). In Revelation 3:18 it speaks of “buy from Me gold refined in the fire”. That speaks there will be a cost to this refining, it will cost us something, not with money, but with sacrifice to return to the Lord.

Silver speaks of redemption. She will be used to bring deliverance to the captives because she is redeemed and has paid the price to walk in that redemption. This is the only time the word ‘studs’ is used in the Bible. He will bring order into our thought life as we submit to His ways. The ‘helmet of salvation’ is provided for us, but we need to put it on.

On the Hebraic calendar, yesterday was Iyar 14 which is Pesach Sheni, the Second Passover. When the Israelites were in the Wilderness, they were going to celebrate Passover as God had instructed them to do ‘forever’. However, some were not able to celebrate because they were not ritually clean and prepared.

Numbers 9:6-7, “There were, however, certain persons who had become ritually impure through contact with a dead body, and could not, therefore, prepare the Passover offering on that day. They approached Moses and Aaron . . . and they said: ‘. . . Why should we be deprived, and not be able to present God’s offering in its time, amongst the children of Israel?’”

This Pesach Sheni reveals that it is a ‘never a lost cause’, we serve a God of a Second Chance!

Last night was an amazing clear sky and I was at Bush Intercontinental Airport waiting for pastor friends who were arriving. As I sat in the car I looked up at the most amazing full moon. I had forgotten what day it was on God’s calendar. I took my iPhone with the amazing SkyView App and  was amazed at the heavenly formation.

Below is my first picture. It shows the full moon (representing Bride of Christ, reflecting the Glory of the Bridegroom) in the constellation of Libra the Scales (representing our purchased redemption, a price we would never pay) with Saturn (Shabbatai, the Rest, representing Lord of the Sabbath).

The next photo caught me by surprise. It was the constellation Scorpio the Giant Scorpion (a symbol of satan, in Hebrew it is aqrab ‘the conflict of war’– the root word means ‘a deadly foe’ or ‘to heave in conflict’). Antares is the brightest star in Scorpio’s heart shines deep red in color and means ‘the wounding’ in ancient Arabic.

D. James Kennedy, PH.D. in his book The Read Meaning of the Zodiac wrote regarding Scorpio. “Here we go to the very heart of the whole message of the Bible. And what is that message? Essentially, it about great warfare. And though that warfare is often portrayed as the battle between the forces of righteousness and the forces of evil in this world-between faith and unbelief; between the followers of Christ and the followers of anti-Christ-ultimately, it is a battle between Christ and Satan. It all began in that battle in Heaven.”

This scorpion of Revelation (serpent, dragon) is described in many ways in the Bible. Revelation 9:10-11, “And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”

As I stated before, the full moon represents the Bride of Christ. Why do I say that? Because the moon has no light in itself, it only represents the radiance and glory of the Sun. Psalm 19:1-6 tells of the Heavenly Bible that speaks to mankind, and verse 5 calls the Sun the Bridegroom. ‘Which is as a bridegroom out of his chamber’. Yeshua is the Bridegroom and is waiting for the soon coming Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The conflict the Bride of Christ is experiencing right now is not with flesh and blood, but the evil spirits of the anti-Christ behind each attack.

Another reference to the Moon being the Bride is from Joseph’s dream as recorded in Genesis 37:9, “the sun and the moon and the eleven stars bowed down to me.” Jacob replied, “Shall I (sun) and your mother (moon) and your (11) brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” The 12 main constellation represent the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Time to arise Church! Time to arise and shine Warrior Bride! Wake up and report for duty! The Church’s greatest victory is at hand- our time has come. The Harvest is indeed ready!

I took the following photos with an ap on my iphone, SkyView Free. The Moon (not looking blood red on the SkyViewer) is right on top of Spica, the Branch. In Hebrew it is called Tsemech, The Branch. There are 24 Hebrew words that mean branch, but only one is Tsemech (H6780) and it is used exclusively for the Messiah and is used 4 times (Jeremiah 23:5; Zechariah 3:8 & 6:12; Isaiah 4:2)

To the right is the red planet, Mars. In Hebrew it is Ma’Adim, The Red One. This planet has become known as the Planet of War.

To the left is Saturn, Shabbtai, representing the Lord of the Sabbath rest.

Saturn is directly over Libra, “The Scales”. The Hebrew name is Mozanaim, “the scales, weighing”. Daniel 5:27, TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

SELAH

Saturn is one of the original 7 planets that make up the Heavenly Menorah of Creation. Planets are also known as ‘wandering stars’.

Historian Josephus records “God afforded them (Adam, Seth, Enoch) a longer time on account of thier virtue, and the good use they made of it in astronomical and geometric discoveries, which would not be afforded the time of foretelling [periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for the great year is completed in that interval.”  (Antiqities 1.3.9) It has been taught through the ages that the 7 planets were in perfect alignment on the 4th day of Creation.

Genesis 1:14-16 tells us, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. [He made] the stars also.”

Stars come in two categories: (1) Fixed – Constellations (2) Wandering – Planets, Comets, Meteors

Saturn is the Star of this week! Saturn’s name in Hebrew is Shabbtai and means ‘rest’.  All the planets have names that represent the Messiah, Saturn representing “Lord of the Sabbath”. Saturn is the most beautiful planet, beautiful colored with over 1000 rings made of dust and ice surrounding her beauty. NASA will never be able to land on this beautiful planet because it is made up of gas, a spaceship would go right through it.

This week Saturn has been in opposition, meaning that the Sun is on the other side of the earth so our view is awesome. The rings could be seen with the naked eye. http://earthsky.org/tonight/saturn-closest-and-brightest-april-28

This week Saturn is showing us anything but rest! http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/04/30/monster-hurricane-on-saturn-nasa/

COULD SHABBTAI BE GIVING US A SIGN? Yes, I believe it is.

  • Add this to the first naked-eye comet of the Century PanStarrs and I believe the signs in the heavens are speaking for us to ‘look up’. Comets, throughout history, have become known as a bad omen. They often appear several years before a major war or natural disaster.
  • Comet ISON, which will be seen the  best the first day of Hanukkah Nov 28, is expected to be one of the largest, if not the largest, in history.
  • These signs are coming before 2014-2015 back-to-back Blood Red Moons on Passover and Tabernacles!
  • 2015 will also have Solar Eclipses on both of the New Years on the Hebrew Calendar (Nissan and Tishri)
  • Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20 and Rev 6:12 all record before the LORD returns the moon would turn to blood (lunar eclipse) AND the sun to sackcloth (solar eclipse). Not ‘or’, or ‘either’, but AND.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

NOTE: I apologize for not putting the beautiful photos of Saturn at rest and distress. My laptop will be fixed shortly and I can get back to work writing!!  Blessings, Mary
