Song of Songs 4:4 Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men.
Rashi shares some powerful insight into the makeup of the neck of the Bride of Christ... The word in KJV translated shield is actually a quiver - Note the Picture attached and see if you see the quiver.
This is the Truth Network treasurers of the song of songs, which is drives that we cannot get this so that out yesterday as usually I try to release one every day. But honestly yesterday I didn't have the wow factor that I usually have before I give you an episode and to say that God gave me a wow factor on this particular verse would be an understatement. As I don't know if I've ever been as loud as I was this morning as I think you're to be so grateful that I held off for a day until I had the wow what I think I got it so to jump right in. Or, in the fourth chapter of the song of Solomon, which is the doll that the beloved capper chapter in so many ways we are getting to see in these first verses how Jesus how the beloved describes his bride and the seven attributes that we have been going through which Matthew Henry pointed out and I believe wholeheartedly he's right that they line up perfectly with the seven spirits of God as they would be the reflection of Jesus and that his anointing that he had and so we get to see that we talked about the wisdom of the eyes, and we get to talk about the understanding of the orderliness of the hair and then we had to talk about the sheep coming up that are that that chew the food, the Council of the Council of the teeth that chew up our word of God and help us to get our white teeth. How cool is that. And we talked about that the lips of scarlet that speak beautifully comely words to everyone in the course of scarlet lips being the promise that we talked about and that that being the might as it comes out of your mouth.
That's what strongmen we talked about the two halves of the pomegranate being the knowledge fruit which would be that the fifth anointing of that we receive his knowledge and how cool is that that that would even be the fruit of knowledge as many describe the pomegranate answer today I know is going to be big. When I finally could grasp what it was about is the fear the Lord, the six anointing that Jesus received was the fear the Lord and I think once you fully grasp all that here you will agree that this one lines up so amazingly with that almost takes my breath.
So go ahead and read it in English and the "walk you through it. In some ways I think wow you probably do 10 episodes on this one verse now that God is opening up to be what is actually saying so here we go in English in the King James version 9 neck is like the tower of David building foreign armory where on their hang a thousand bucklers. All shields of mighty men, so this breaks down and a lot of really amazing ways. Number one I think it's helpful to understand that the tower of David as the Jews teach and rush he taught was where the Sanhedrin would meet and so that 70 that might represent the head of the church of Jerusalem at the time that you know Solomon was king, and so that head was there in the tower and so the neck is obviously holding that and it's building foreign armory and then he goes on to describe that armory be armaments that are in this neck and so their income some words that are really hard to understand and and clearly the way that they were originally in the King James version anyway. Translated is confusing when you think what I think when you see what they mean because there there are several places where we get a picture of this both in Jeremiah and in Ezekiel they talk about these hanging shields or as they case as Rossi would point out and I think he's got it right that these are hanging with actually hanging there. What is translated to shield our quivers. Golden crib quivers. Is it meds, it may be, and I think you'll see that when you look in Jeremiah 31 when there described in Ezekiel. I forget the exact chapter, but it's in their where the this described the same shields that make or this case quivers that make this snap neck beautiful.
So why would that be important well quivers.
As you know, hold arrows and very interestingly, the hundred and 27th Psalm was a Psalm for Solomon.
It was a Psalm of degrees for Solomon and when you read the hundred 27th Psalm. When you look to the last three verses.
It talks about the blessing of children and that children are like quivers in the arrow well if you think about when Jesus looks at his bride. He is looking for children right he he's all about having these quivers full well if there are a thousand quivers.
With all the arrows of all these mighty men you can picture what's there. And of course Rossi would know when he described this word that is translated shields here in the King James version. When you look at the word. You can see where it would be quivers and that idea of these these these disciples going forthright because you when you think about the great commission. What Jesus told us was to go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and the son and the Holy Spirit. The idea of those are children right is as you get a chance to share God with with people share your discipleship how God is as walk with you right then we have spiritual children and those spiritual children are arrows in these quivers while you think about this tower that has to be protected right you can see that one of the things in ancient times there would be quivers of thousands of arrows there because they would in this case we need a thousand shields because there's a thousand mighty men will these mighty men all have shields which the shield is the shield of faith, and that were the translated buckler there.
When you look at it might well be translated shield and that has to do with faith and but the shield is more of a defensive weapon.
The course defending yourself. But really, in ancient times it was more that you defended the man to your left as as as warriors.
Mothers would often send them out come home with your shield or on it, meaning that to let go of your shield was a complete disgrace, because that was the only thing you had to protect the people that were next to you and so the faith are the shields what's beyond amazing are these quivers that are full of these arrows thousands of arrows. As these children coming out of the neck of that which holds up and supports and in regards they had the body of the that the Sanhedrin is at work.
The 70 so you picture like I don't know if you've had many people in your life that that discipled you, but like that were spiritual fathers while you are a quiver right it in their armory. And so here's this neck now.
I have posted for everyone in the show notes a picture of the muscles of the neck, and anybody was ever processed animals like I have would tell you that the neck muscles are extremely difficult to work with their very very strong muscles and their very very thick muscles infect the skin on the back of the neck of the thickened skin. I think in the body.
You'll find anywhere in most animals, and so these muscles of the neck have a very interesting look to them.
So I posted a picture of the muscles of the neck, and if you can't tell me that doesn't look like a sheet out of Alitalia because it's exactly what it Solomon of course was an expert in anatomy and of course obviously the Holy Spirit is to see that in so many ways.
How can you imagine how beautiful it is for Jesus to look upon his bride to see you know the wisdom and the understanding the counselor might want to come to the fear the Lord, here comes right. A thousand shields of faith there that are held by manic, mighty men, who all have quivers flow of these disciples that are being sent forth like this going forth his arrows and when you look at the the spelling of the word arrow which does happen to be in this first part of the idea of them being quivers tells you that it would be arrows.
Here we find the letter head followed by an the elongated daddy which is this idea of righteousness and and it's like your righteousness of marriage, going forth will, of course, that's arrows. Of course it is a righteousness of marriage, going forth and you see that that how perfectly this all lines up and you wonder. Well Robbie word you published another hat well Rashi and I was on my confusing thing Rashi said immediately that this was not a shield that there shields were the shield, but the other part were arrows and and I would suppose the Jews would know and again when you look in some ancient times they held these quivers all along the top of these towers as you can imagine to shower down thousands arrows on anybody that might come to try to attack the tower and the high tier of these muscles that hold our heads up right along. Those are our our our children so to speak, as we do things right, and we share the word of God in so many different ways and it's amazing how we end up with a spiritual children and their going forth, so anything back in your life right and I talked about about Ted Burton how he discipled me in that time I was in that meeting with over 200 man in the ass company people here were discipled by Ted Burton and almost 2/3 of the people in the crowd lifted their hand. All of those who hate were from this one mighty man who used his shield of faith to create all these arrows at me now spectaculars that but I think of even more like I I'm so blessed and just so excited every day I get to meet such amazing people and other people I get to record with every week is Nikita call off right. The Russian nightmare and you should hear him go make disciples.
When he you know what he does is man Campanelli and and he has all these wonderful disciples and I also get to meet with Dr. Duane Carson who does date the word, and he has an understanding of Scripture that's unbelievable. Just yesterday as we were recording.
He was sharing with me. How is this this waitress he was talking to and they talked about the Bible for a long long long long time and and how any time with Dr. carcinoma seems like you break down under revival. Why does he have all the spiritual children which will hear story after story. Why because he's been doing all those things we talked about in the previous verses right is the wisdom of the dove eyes and he's got right the hair of the flock to Gilead.
That's an order that he has understanding and he has the Council of the white teeth because he's been munching on the word of God. He's got the lips that have that speak might. Because of the word of the promise, and he's got right these these pomegranate knowledge cheeks that are full of the seeds of the word of God, ready to spread that all over the place. Of course, of course, he's got these amazing she holds eight and he's got this quiver is just full of arrows and when you picture Jesus looking at his bride like that all my goodness how lucky are we at private that today at some point you will think about the people that poured into you that you would be an arrow. If you want some fun to look at the podcast page by show notes and and there you'll see what the muscles look like in the neck, or you can is Google muscles of the neck, you'll see it and if you don't see that as a sheep out of Alitalia ago thanks for less than
