I believe God uses the "love relationship" between a man and a woman to illustrate how the two may grow further in depthness. By so doing, "oneness" and "happiness" is achieve. The bonds grow stronger, and, when tended to, are carefully not allowed to be broken. The art of "growing in love" is a lost art in today's society. The Song of Solomon, as far as what is actually given for us literally in the Scriptures, has only two interpretations. 1) The love relationship between King Solomon and the Shulimite bride/wife, and 2) allegorically, of God's love shown at the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ sacrifice, our "mercy seat."
I am captivated by God's mercy seat! The wrath of God against sinners was fully paid by His Son's death, and resurrection. He who know no sin became sin for us 2 Corinthians 5:21; 2 Corinthians 8:9; Hebrews 2:9.
Song verse two "Let Him kiss me." He does the kissing first, not her. We did not choose the Lord, but He sought us first. Romans 5:8 "But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." John 6:44 "No man can come unto me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him, and I will raise him up the last day." In any human love relationship, the great desire for a woman to be drawn to a man is more than physical. His "good name" is of number one importance. Is what he says reliable? Is the content plausable and to her liking? Does he do what he says he will do? Does he follow through with his promises? To all who would sensibly approach another in any relationship, these questions that address one's name should carefully be regarded. Ecclesiastes 7:1 "A good name is better than precious ointment..." In Ecclesiastes 10:1, 11-14, "a fool" is discribed with his untrustworthy words. Being drawn by the right man, with the right words, and the right performance of his words is what is known as being "a man of your word," and causes trusting loving relationships.
Also in verse two "...Your love is better than wine." There are two chambers that can be interpreted in verse four, "...the king has brought me to his chambers...", 1) King Solomons special bed chambers, 1 Kings 1:15; and 2) the inner chambers of the temple of God, His "mercy seat," 1 Chronicles 28:11. It is interesting the follow phrase in verse four, "...we will be glad and rejoice in THEE..." Psalm 118:24 speaks of the special one and only day that GOD HAD IN MIND SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, the Day that Christ died on the cross. Earthly made wines gladen the heart, Psalm 104:15; but at God's mercy seat, there is eternal gladness found in Him and rejoicing of the heart.
The first question asked the King by the Shulimite is revealing, verse seven, "Tell me, O Thou whom my soul loveth, where Thou feedest, where Thou makest thy flock to rest at noon? Her appetite! That which the Shulimite hungers for is addressed first. (The story continues further in her journey of "growing in love.") And the answer is in verse four, asked by HER, "DRAW ME!" It is not until we take the initiative to draw closer to God beyond the physical enjoyments to a deeper level of commitment that God's Love become more rich. His grace is more meaningful and true in our own lives!
