I would bring thee into my Mother's House
Song of Solomon 8:1,2 -
O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without [outside], I would kiss [arm] thee; yea, I should not be despised [hold in contempt]. I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother's house, who would instruct me: I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine [compound banquet] of the juice of my pomegranate.
To study the Bible there are many levels by which one needs to go through.
It starts with commentaries (also known as percept study) wherein one takes a few continuous scriptures and understands with context what the Lord wants to tell us.
It grows to cross-reference study, wherein one links the different scriptures and understands with time and dimension what the Lord instructs us.
This then further grows to word study, wherein one studies just a word digs into its meaning, grammar, root etc. In the scriptures every word by its self holds the truth in its dimension to be parts of the full Truth. For instance the grammar literally tells us what we should do or expect physically, mentally and spiritually.
The top level of Bible study is image study. Everything in the Bible and even in creation is made in spiritual images. This study is impossible unless the Spirit of the Lord opens one's mind and blesses that person with spiritual wisdom. One needs to be fully founded with the previous levels before one gets to this level. Without them one will get so misled that none would be able to save such a one. The best book to understand image study is the book - Songs of Solomon.
I think this is the first time in the past 3 years since I started sending theses mails that I received a message from this book. The understanding might shake many, but if one surrenders to the Lord and not to the wrong foundations which are based on human understanding, one will really come closer to knowing God.
In the scriptures one of the references which the Lord uses for Himself is the Name 'El Shaddai' which if one understands ancient Hebrew it literally means 'Strong Breasted One'. God is both our eternal Father and Mother. He is the one Who created us, gave, gives and will give life unto, as well as provided, provides and will provide for us to sustain this life which He gave.
The book Songs of Solomon is like a Shakespeare play with the names of the characters removed. One will only understand who is who by previous knowledge of the person like knowing the person's nature, intent, way of speech etc...
Today's scriptures are spoken by none other than Lord the Son of God and the One Whom He refers as Mother is none other than Lord the Holy Spirit. Breast symbolizes ministering and pomegranate symbolizes the Truth. The Lord, Who is calling us brothers, invites us unto His Spiritual House which is the Kingdom of Heaven - the abode of the Holy Spirit and unto being ministered with the knowledge and understanding of Who the Lord is, by the Holy Spirit.
We have two types of parents, one of flesh and blood who were vessels to bring our spirit and souls into this body, which we live in. The other Parent is our Spiritual and Eternal Parent - God, Who gave birth to our spirit and soul and also hand in everything concerning us. God is both our Eternal Father and Mother and putting anyone else in any of that place actually means rejecting God.
