Utter Contempt

"Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned."  Song 8:7 To contemn is to treat with contempt – to regard with dishonour and consider to be vile and worthless.  There are as few emotionally charged words as that of contempt.  In Solomon’s desire to drive home the absurdity of paying for love he adds the word utter – utter contempt! The Holy Spirit helps us to understand the depth of this emotion being conveyed when we consider how  he...

Fair As the Moon

The Bride is compared to the moon in Song 6:10.  Fourteen distinct parallels can be seen between the Church and the moon: 1)            The moon is lifeless and dead – there is neither water nor air.   Before our salvation we were “dead in trespasses and sins.”  (Eph. 2:1-2)    In our lost state we had no submission to the authority of the word (water) or to the authority of the Holy Spirit (air/wind). 2)           The moon has no light of its own.   Job 25:5 flatly says that the moon “shineth not.”   The moon merely reflects the light of the sun in...
