Song of Songs 6:7 As a piece of a pomegranate are thy temples within thy locks.
Cleaved by God is the face of His beloved and behind the veil. Explore that with us.
This is the Truth Network treasurers. The song of songs, which is so flat. I am a cool guy in his this whole idea of reflecting Jesus's love and and remembering you know that kind of thing and so you know this is a very interesting still got some questions on this myself but you know sometimes we just move on but anyway the seventh verse reads in English.
It is the sixth chapter of the song of Solomon is as Jesus is describing you know his love and it's absolutely spectacular. Absolutely. So as a piece of a pomegranate are thy temples within my locks and so we have this really powerful idea of a piece which has to do with cleaving when you look a bit word that is also like separated two halves of a pomegranate, how you want to look at that there's a cleaving that is going on here in the cleaving that is going on is done with the letter pay in the letter pay as you may know is is a picture of my God's face and so when someone is set apart for the Lord service you know his face. When that shines down on you. It cleaves you into a different place and so it's very rare powerful force because for some no when their face when God's face shines on, but upon them.
You know obviously that it they can't take it it it it kills them.
It did vaporizes him and so you know it's an interesting power that's happening here this pomegranate that is being separated by the face of God and set apart for service and a course of pomegranate. We talked about before.
Some people would call it the knowledge fruit because it's full of all the seeds it's clearly another red fruit and and I don't think we we should miss that it's got all the seeds in it. But the fact that it's been separated by the face of God.
And so when you think about what it does really going on here is when you have looked full in his wonderful face when you have looked into God's face. He is going to make you absolutely stunningly beautiful so beautiful that you have to wear a veil and and so you get the picture. You know we lost her veil in the previous chapter that hear our God is taken another look and as he has once again she's given this veil because there is this idea of what goes on behind the veil is in the secret place, you know. And as we talked about actually in the second chapter, you know, in the secret place of the stairs. Let me see thy countenance. You might remember that discussion well. The idea in my opinion is that when you look into God's face.
He shines his light on us and when he does he makes us beautiful and then we reflect him and so that idea of the Zion is all about our beauty is a reflection of him. But the interesting thing that that did it is because of him and nothing that he was just given to us and so it's almost as if he could only give that to the humble. Like Moses was one of the most humble people are obviously and that humans as the most humble of all his servants, and so to look into his face like nobody else did. Requires tremendous humility, because otherwise we think were special because were beautiful. And therein lies a challenge.
In other words, when you've been given something beautiful by God when you got to see a special vision that we have a tendency to get puffed up about that. And that leads to destruction versus you know keeping that veiled, somewhat realizing that it was not us that God is there, it was completely God. And so when you think about it in in a practical sense and and you try to apply this to your life run trend applied to my life you know some of the most godly, unbelievably wonderful godly people are also the most humble right that you wouldn't guess in a million years that they have this unbelievable relationship with God because they keep it behind the veil.
Nonetheless, when you see this amazing beauty and and clearly they attributed to God. You know from my standpoint, the picture that is my life. Like most people, if they were to meet Tammy.
They window you know clearly you know she's been in the presence of God, but to to know her well is to realize she has a deep faith which she keeps very much to herself and her times of God are very much to herself and she gives herself little to no credit for any of that.
But I know the fruit of her life. I mean, I know I'm in the fruit of her life. In other words, to know Robbie is to somewhat snow. Tammy and I didn't even know Jesus before matter. Okay so in a critical aspect of my life. It is, is the fruit that Tammy has brought into my life and the fact that you are like a lot of people tell you the voice of the Holy Spirit sounds a lot like their wife.
I can assure you.
In my case it's very much the case that Tammy catches me in all sorts of things all the time and she does it completely from a point of humility like showing me where I'm getting proud where I'm posing where I'm not being allowed to be where I need to be where I need to be, you know, she is truly a helpmate but if you were to look at Tammy's cheekbones.
You can see their absolutely beautiful. She has this amazing front smile and this amazing life that I know came from God and I know comes from her relationship with God which she is always had this unbelievable faith for my standpoint, where the disk never was any question that that you know that God existed in that God was doing these things and it's always been a beautiful thing but again it's well hidden behind that veil and so I think here we have an interesting thing that there's a veil that suppose.
And but then there's a veil that is given to the humble. And I don't know how all that works. But like I said in the beginning I have still have got questions about this to some extent, but nonetheless I think that it's it's clear that this blush just that is of these red pomegranate cheeks just thrills Jesus to know and and clearly is a reflection of everything that he is, but we don't want to get the glory for that and that's somewhat the part of it so again, I'm so thrilled to share this with you temporarily become so overwhelmed when we get to the next verse America verse tomorrow. The eighth verse. I think you'll see that this made a huge effect on thank you so much for listening
