Morning Light – Song of Solomon 3 Today: [Song of Solomon 3] The Bride Seeks the Bridegroom. Song of Solomon 3 describes the quest of the bride seeking out her beloved. Just who is the bride anyway? Is the bride Israel? Many believe this is so. Is the bride the Church? This is a common believe but did you know that you in your soul are a member of the bride of Christ? You are the body of Christ in your human spirit where God lives, and the bride of Christ in your soul (mind, will and emotions). Do you … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 27th, 2016 – Song of Solomon 2:  The Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley

Morning Light – Song of Solomon 2 Today: [Song of Solomon 2] The Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley. In Song of Solomon chapter 2 we see an ongoing dialog between the Bridegroom and the bride. The entire book of Song of Solomon is controversial and thought by many not to truly belong in the canon of scripture. However when we choose to look at it beyond the surface we see that it is a love poem between the bride and the Bridegroom who are none other than Christ and His church. There is something in you and … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 22, 2016 – Song of Solomon 1:  Let Him Kiss Me with the Kisses of His Lips

Morning Light – Song of Solomon 1 Today: [Song of Solomon 1] Let Him Kiss Me with the Kisses of His Lips. Having now come to the study of the Song of Solomon we enter into a consideration of intimacy with God that many never even consider. The Song of Solomon is rejected by many as a salacious piece of erotic fiction, written by an ancient author. Even as early as the 4th century scholars rejected it altogether finding themselves incapable of seeing in its pageantry and language any redeeming, spiritual quality. Such will no doubt be the response of … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 21, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 12:  Absent from the Body – Present with the Lord

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 12 Today: [Ecclesiastes 12] Absent from the Body – Present with the Lord. In this concluding chapter of Ecclesiastes we find a profound truth about mortality, eternity and one-ness with the Father. In chapter 12 Solomon describes the body winding down from a very mystical perspective. There is a point even in unregenerate man that their human spirit, the life principle God gave them when they were born, will return to God that gave it. The question is for every man and woman have they accepted the blood sacrifice of the cross so that when God … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 20th, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 11: Are You Preparing for the Apocalypse?

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 11 Today: [Ecclesiastes 11] Are You Preparing for the Apocalypse? In chapter 11 of Ecclesiastes Solomon discusses strategies of preparation in light of what we see coming upon the earth. He makes the observation that we don’t know what is coming upon the earth and therefore should make preparation lest we be found wanting in the midst of crises. What is different about Solomon’s statements in this chapter is that he stresses something that is almost unheard of in the “prepper” community. He states that we should consider giving and generosity – “giving a portion to … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 19th, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 10: Does Your Anointing Stink?

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 10 Today: [Ecclesiastes 10] Does Your Anointing Stink? In this chapter Solomon speaks about the problem of having an anointing from God with a character that brings ill repute on the cause of Christ. There are many men and women who are called and anointed to do great things yet because of character issues they become cautionary tales of failure and disappointment. It would be convenient to exclude ourselves from that number but every one of us is called of God and anointed in some measure to do His will and fulfill a destiny. You also … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 16th, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 9:  What Really Matters?

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 9 Today: [Ecclesiastes 9] What Really Matters? In chapter 9 of Ecclesiastes Solomon declares the vanity of the false value systems that seek to occupy our minds throughout life. All around us there are authorities and influences demanding that we pay attention to what they insist is the most important things of life (usually to their own enrichment and our impoverishment). What is really important. Through Ecclesiastes Solomon’s wisdom expresses itself in the light of man’s brief mortality and this chapter is no exception. In light of eternity and the brevity of life what is really … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 15, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 8:  Follow the Command of God or Men?

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 8 Today: [Ecclesiastes 8] Follow the Command of God or Men? In chapter 8 Solomon speaks of the wisdom that causes man’s face to shine. The New Testament teaches us that wisdom is much more than human learning. Wisdom according to 1 Cor. 1:30,31 is found in the person of Christ. God made Jesus to be our wisdom. In that context Solomon commands us to keep the commandment of the king. What king are we speaking of if not king Jesus? When we allow others to usurp in our lives the Lordship of Jesus Christ and … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – December 14, 2016 – Ecclesiastes 7:  The Reality and Value of a Good Name

Morning Light – Ecclesiastes 7 Today: [Ecclesiastes 7] The Reality and Value of a Good Name. In chapter 7 of our study of Ecclesiastes Solomon speaks of the value of a good name. Is it important to have the good opinion of others? What is it that constitutes a good name? Jesus taught us to beware when all men speak well of us. Considering that then what is the value of having a good reputation or having favor with those around us? In this chapter, we examine that true basis of comparison to determine just what a good name means … (click link or title to continue)
