Song of Songs 1:17 The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.

Solomon no doubt had Proverbs 24:3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: in mind as so much comes together here, Wisdom and Understanding as the wood that he picked both for the Temple and this house are Cedar and Fir, which in Hebrew is Alef-Resh and Bet-Resh - In it's own way the beginning of Wisdom and the beginning of Understanding.

Also in my view connected to Deuteronomy 4:6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

God's People who love each other build an amazing house for the world to see... Simple enough - "Love One Another" The whole word is looking for that wisdom and that understanding.

It's been told me many times, "The best thing you can do for you kids is to love their mother". The real house is not the shingles over my head, it's the blood...

This is the Truth Network treasurers song of songs, which is an chapter 1 song 17 and it spectacular as you might imagine, I say at the onset of this that it was my sort of I guess very that the first chapter would be the aleph chapter about have everything to do with the letter aleph and very interesting that the connection between aleph and bet and wisdom and understanding, and I think were to see all that. I think it clearly points to that in so many different ways as we get to wisdom and understanding, you know, it was obviously a big issue for Solomon. He wrote about it in so many different ways that we will see that here in this verse and how much love has to do with it. So in verse 17 in English, it reads the beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of her so you know you can't help it just immediately know that Proverbs 24, three says, through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding its established and and the neat thing about the word house in Hebrew. I think it's absolutely spectacular is that is not just a building that you know you you are of the house of one of your last name is like a mouse of Gilmore or you know in the kingdom as to do with you know God's house and the house is a great deal to do more with people in my perspective than it does with buildings just like the church and in other wisdom of the aleph and how much that has to do with love is spectacular and and and so you know, I hope you see the connection that we've just gone through, obviously. 16 this is a 17 versus but we've gone through 16 verses of these two falling in love and love is so critical to know what's going on here. So another thing that I would know immediately is again, we know that Solomon had much to do with wisdom, and he certainly is pointing this verse to that, you know, one of the things we talked about the fundamentals of the hundred 19 song clearly is Deuteronomy 46 and that speaks back to our quest to understand what the statute is and perhaps to see how much that the commandment that Jesus gave us love one another is his so foundational to the church itself and so foundational to love so.

Deuteronomy 46 I would remind you is just one of those verses that just seems to be just one of the basic basics but anyway it says keep therefore, and do them, for this is your wisdom and he's talking about statute, by the way, keep therefore the and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations which shall hear all these statutes and say Shirley, this is a great nation is a wise and understanding people.

So when you see a nation all fight with itself, and whatever else is going on you not sit in on this lot. Wisdom and understanding. Here, but he gets back to the idea of what we started out with the idea that that a statute is is a love song to some extent that's in our hearts, and when we see a couple that basically just dearly, dearly, dearly love what are they doing well there building their house of cedar and a fur and again these are the very elements of the unit that Solomon ordered by the tons and tons in order to build the temple were cedar and fir and so the idea of you know the foundations or the, the beams being of cedar, which is the word that was used to cleanse things and clearly it doesn't rot because insects won't get it and all that kind of thing. It's got a spectacular number of qualities, but also, don't miss that one has everything to do with righteousness that you have the ark was built out of wood and that by the way, is the first time you see the word house in the Scriptures has to do with the ark in so many different ways and and the idea that it was in his own way the church and and what is there. What was in the ark of the covenant and and again would would be used on the cross that Jesus would build his church, you know, essentially through this idea of what in the course every sacrifice that was ever brought was burned unwanted and and would again is that you know when you look at the word in Hebrew.

You see, it's righteous and and it has to do with it being vertical and you know in so many different ways points to God all that stuff and so you can see that here. This house is being built on the right stuff when it's getting built by cedars and first and I also point out just as the casual observer that the word cedars starts with an aleph.

It's actually an aleph ration so you think it's the beginning of wisdom for the word for his bet race okay.

Do you think this accident I don't think so is getting out wisdom and to get understanding and beginning of a note or I'm sit there going okay and Abina in Hebrew is definitely understanding and I you know the wisdom of the father has to do with the aleph and so in many, many, many people make the connection between aleph being wisdom and bet being understanding and so you know it's pretty spectacular when you see what's coming on here is this idea of how foundational wisdom and love fit together and I just you know. Think back to my own family, the house of Gilmore and what God did with our family near the end of of my parents lives. Unfortunately there was a huge rift that had happened between my sisters. There were four in my you know that my mother's children would be the family that I'm referring to, because both my parents had lots of stepchildren were not part of my family, but from my perspective, they were part of my family but I didn't grow up with him. I grew up with the four of us there were two sisters and them have one little brother which I dearly love all of them and but unfortunately there became this huge rift between my sisters and my father and all my gosh they were talking to each other and it got really really really ugly and my father after the death of my stepmother came to live in our area and you know we kind of took care of them last couple years of his life. One of the joys of all that, but in that time, you know, we prayed a lot and talked a lot and my father actually written my sisters out of his will and all that and it was really cool to see how God in a moment. Give God all the credit here God touch my father's heart to really connect his house so that at his death it was beautiful that you know both my sisters were there, course.

My brother and he and I are always got along well you know is just a neat thing to see that reconciliation and if that doesn't look like wisdom and understanding that your house would be put back together and noted what's to be remembered as a house divided right. I mean it's just a spectacular thing to think that as we love and and you've heard it said many times about him of the best thing you can give your children is to love their mother. Or if you're that wife to love their father.

You know that that that that there's nothing like this foundation of love and understanding, and so got a fun as we finish up this Al is what I think is the aleph section and will go on to the next chapter which will be the bet and see more about how this understanding is played out as now you might guess that my sub supposition, or my theory is that the second B about the bet and again, going to a chapters being 8B, the head miracle chapter and really excited about this journey and thank you so much for joining me at so
