Song of Songs 5:3 I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?

What might this have to do with Genesis 3 and John 13 and the virgins without oil? Listen and find out.


This is the Truth Network treasurers of the song of songs, which is Solomon all the ministries that are inverse of the fifth chapter of the song Solomon, which is the demo verse and this is a very cryptic thing. I almost didn't come out with this episode again today because are still some things here.

I would really like to work out of my mind, but I'm reserving that maybe I'll do it later, but there are certainly plenty that we can unlock and talk about here as we talked about that this section of the song of Solomon takes an interesting turn. As we are headed into the garden and then it would appear that were in the garden with Jesus as he sweat great great drops of blood and it would appear that you know we slept, but her heart was awake that the disciples were sleeping when they should of been awake and now here we can see another aspect of that night for the disciples as we read this verse in English verse three says I have put off my coat. How shall I put it on.

I have washed my feet.

How shall I defile them and hopefully hurt yesterday's episode but you might recall, it says I sleep, but my heart wake if it's a voice of my beloved that market saying open to be my sister, my dove, my undefiled for my head is filled with do my locks with the drops of the night I put on my coat. How shall I put it on. I wash my feet.

How shall I defile them so that's to give the whole fought in-kind order that it was that it is written, and in so you know the overarching thing yet you know is you think about the hundred 19 Solomon met verse in the hay section that says no. Turn my eyes away from the holding vanity in Quicken now me and the highway. In other words, this verse is all about vanity in so many different ways and it's, you know, it starts out with this idea that she's asleep, and clearly a seep asleep spiritually like the bridesmaids that were asleep when they should of been awake waiting on the bridegroom to come knocking.

As is the case may be, and clearly you can see that she's run out of oil right that there is no oil in her lamp. It's not burning as she is conceding she is just consumed with their own needs, rather than the needs of her Savior and she doesn't get up and answer the door, which is that obviously when you think about the disciples that night. They couldn't stay awake either. There was enough oil in their lamps, and so it it it gets you to where do you get that, but also that the part that I will. I really wanted to unpack completely and I'm still working on it, but I have parts of it is what is this mean I put off my coat when you look at that in Hebrew. It literally means to strip naked right so she's saying I'm naked in and afraid okay and and that is again our thoughts are not on the larger story.

What Jesus is doing. Our thoughts are on self-conscious thoughts.

I'm naked. I'm ashamed and clearly you know, the disciples were there. Apparently three times injury, the Gospel accounts of what happened in the garden of Gethsemane.

That night there. Jesus kept asking them to pray that they do not fall into temptation right and and so they were clearly in a situation where they couldn't stay awake.

But in this case she doesn't want to be caught naked and you know how many times in our lives. Are we afraid to go out in ministry or do whatever else because working with people are going to see how naked we really are and again regular not having faith in Christ can get us covered and then it moves on to live wash my feet. How shall I defile them and the idea of feet, spiritually and in and you you can find it throughout the Scriptures, even in Genesis, Abraham would wash the feet of those angels and it was a common thing for the you note for to be asked to wash the feet and the idea of that spiritually is before you can go do anything. You know you gotta move your feet. In other words beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news because Dave made a choice to move to engage to do something right. And the idea is were supposed to get up and do ministry, but unfortunately we think that we are to be defiled only doing enough. And there's not enough oil in our lamp to stay awake. But the real thing for me in often is fear.

Fear that I'm in a fail.

So there's the fear that I will be caught naked.

And then there's the fear that I don't have what it takes to be successful, that in my own way right that that it says I'll be defiled and and again that the of the problem here is fear in vanity. I'm considering what is happening with me and I'm considering what is good if you like to fail and you know this.

This story is played out in my life so many many many many many times. I mean, almost.

There's everyday there's something I wish I would've gone and done that I didn't do because I was afraid that I was going to fail or and somehow or another be exposed to something I couldn't handle so I can remember one time at the worst fight I ever got in with my older sister was we went to go get gas at a grocery store. She wanted me to go in and pay for it and go get the gas but I used to be afraid. I really was very shy boy David and know it may be hard to believe it is very true I I was terrified literally frozen in fear to get out of the car and go talk to that man behind the counter and I might've been 12 or 13 at the time and a fight ensued.

It was very ugly okay. But this this same scene would play out. Later in my life in a very critical time is I was married to a young lady by Amber Brenda and we've been married about a year and 1/2 were actually lived at the time in savanna Georgia and we had gone to the grocery store to get some dog food actually for our dog as we're leaving to go to North Carolina to visit her son and as we get to the grocery store.

I asked her that she go in the grocery store and get the dog food because once again, for whatever reason that's hard to explain all the fears that I had prior to come across but I have been I could. I was terrified with fear.

I did not want to go into that store.

I didn't want to see the people I didn't want to pay for another words I asked her to go do it and she's like no you go do it and I was like no you go do it well. Another fight ensued because I just wouldn't do it and she literally got out of the car and started walking in truth be told, she walked from Wellington Island all the way in savanna. I would based on all that I know I tried to follow as much as I could and try to get a get my car she wouldn't do it, but that was in the my first marriage was because I would not go by dog food and that may sound absolutely spacey. If it is the bottom line is, man.

I was paralyzed in fear. I could call like an insurance agent or call some you know anything like that. I can remember sitting there terrified girls that I wanted to ask out and I would try to dial three or four numbers I couldn't get through it.

In other words, how many times as I don't know if it's a fear of failure, fear of being exposed. It's all these things that I think this bride is feeling this right this minute, which is you know I I don't want to be exposed and and I don't want to fail and I don't want to risk essentially is where this comes down to like you know you got these talents and you're supposed to use them, but you're afraid to risk not being exposed afraid to risk the failure and and there it is right it is that it just is a risky thing for the headset who you know. I'm so grateful that Jesus's blood covers us so that we will never be exposed and he washed the disciples feet. That night that their way would be made that they would be fruitful for him right in the end, so the only way that I stepped behind the mic. The very first time was that he, Jesus asked me to do and he covered me and and and it happened. I still can't believe that it did because of you know, like, really Robbie Gilmore on the radio. After all the fears that I had when I was younger person but oh my goodness.

If you walk in faith with him. He not only covers in his blood, but he washes your feet so that you can go forth not worried that anybody that that that that that you might fail because if you're doing what he asked you to do.

You know you can't fail to listen
