The Great Romance


If you read the Song of Solomon you will find the most Intimate Expressions of love in it's purest form. Our almighty God is the Author and Creator of these passionate affections. We all know the world's definition of love, for we see it everywhere. How sad it is that the world has defiled and perverted such a beautiful thing created by God by plastering the televisions, theaters, magazines and books with such a shallow idea of what they consider to be love.


There are many people looking for love but in all the wrong places. Sadly, they will continue to remain empty until they look to the Author and Creator of Love (their Great King and Shepherd). Only Christ can fill this void in all of mankind's heart. Oh! to know the love of Jesus that far surpasses all of our shallow understanding. Christ's desire is to flood our beings and fill us to saturation and overflowing with His great love. Listen to some of the Intimate Expressions of the Shepherd's great love for His Bride in the Song of Solomon.


HOW FAIR you are, my love [he said], how very fair! Your eyes behind your veil [remind me] of those of a dove; your hair [makes me think of the black, wavy fleece] of a flock of [the Arabian] goats which one sees trailing down Mount Gilead [beyond the Jordan on the frontiers of the desert]. (Song of Solomon 4: 1 Amp. )


[He exclaimed] O my love, how beautiful you are! There is no flaw in you! (Song of Solomon 4:7 Amp.)


Come away with me from Lebanon, my [promised] bride, come with me from Lebanon. Depart from the top of Amana from the peak of Senir and Hermon, from the lions' dens from the mountains of the leopards.


You have ravished my heart and given me courage, my sister, my [promised] bride; you have ravished my heart and given me courage with one look from your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.


How beautiful is your love, my sister, my [promised] bride! How much better is your love than wine! And the fragrance of your ointments than all spices!


Your lips, O my [promised] bride, drop honey as the honeycomb; honey and milk are under your tongue. And the odor of your garments is like the odor of Lebanon.


A garden enclosed and barred is my sister, my [promised] bride-a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. (Song of Solomon 4: 7-12 Amp).


Will we heed the call from our Great Shepherd the Lover of our souls and come away with Him? He desires to rescue us from any harm or danger from the lions dens and the mountains of the leopards (evil schemes and temptations of the enemy). With one look from His Bride's eyes His heart is ravished with love and filled with great courage, how He longs to be with His Bride and His Bride with Him. Our praise unto Him is like sweet honey from our mouths and wine from our lips. The garments of His Bride are not defiled for He sees no flaw in her for she is covered with His righteousness. He sees only virtue and honor in His Bride. There is an exchange of pure love between Christ and His Bride, Her heart is only for Him. Christ does not see His Bride as "what" he or she is, but "who" he or she is. Not what we have done, but what we have become. He sees us for who we really are. His Bride is like the beautiful garden that is barred, and His eyes are beholding Her. In His sight, His Bride is as the garden that has already blossomed into all of it's glory and beauty. Christ's love for His Bride is so passionate and strong that it's what held Him to the cross. His love for His Bride is like a spring that is shut up or a fountain sealed. To be with His beloved Bride fills His heart to bursting with love and joy.


[She said distinctly] My beloved is mine and I am his! He pastures his flocks among the lilies. (Song of Solomon 2:16 Amp.).

'There are so many people looking for this affection but in all the wrong places. They will continue to remain empty though until they look to the Author and Creator of Love and Romance (their Great King and Shepherd).'

Good points.

There are all kinds of legitimate affections that people need and people seek them from both good and bad places. By being in Christ there is an experience of being with the Lord of the universe which includes life direction, salvation, and peace.

Blessings Tammy and family.;)

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
