Making daughters to sons
Songs of Solomon 6:10 - Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?
One of my favorite books from the Bible is Songs of Solomon. But today when I got this scripture as message for the day, I got worried as to how to put it in the message.
On these daily messages which I send on SavedByFaith.info I try to avoid getting deep into Bible study. These messages are intended to be like Gospel messages which give an intro to the Word (therefore the domain .info).
Like when a mother feeding a child adds slight variations in taste and texture, so do I sometimes add a few granules of Word study in the messages as to help bring spiritual growth.
The book Songs of Solomon is not children stuff and needs a good level of spiritual wisdom to understand it. People lacking wisdom term it as erotic and all kind of rubbish, similar to those people who thought Jesus cast out demons with the power of demons.
To understand this scripture one needs know to the difference in spiritual gender and physical gender. Although in spirit man and Angels (both were made spiritually alike before sin came in the picture) there is no gender yet the Bible refers to them in genders. This gender is to do with the symbolism of the image in which man and woman are made and with the fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit.
The physical being of man has an image and so also does woman. Since they are not physically identical, they physically represent two different images. God made us this way so that we can understand God and understand man, and how the relationship between God and man needs to be. That's the reason marriage is called a Temple of God.
Even with the Angels (including Satan his angels) when directly addressed, are addressed in male gender abut when the fallen angels are symbolically addressed (beast - earthly images) they are done in a feminine gender.
We may be male of female in physical body but in spirit we need to be sons (male) for entry to the Kingdom of God (Heaven) is only for those who are spiritually sons. A man can spiritually be a daughter and a woman can spiritually be a son. What counts for God is the spiritual gender not the physical gender. The physical genders are just for us to learn His ways.
When one understands this, one will understand the comments of Paul about woman covering her head and the same if done by a man is an insult to God.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, if you are spiritual baptized in Jesus Christ and in the Holy Spirit then please do not cover your head (when worshiping or praying) for you are maturing sons of God (even if you are physically female).
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are our Father and our Mother. O Father in Heaven we praise and thank You for calling is sons. By your beloved Son Who humbled Himself and became man so that He could set the path to make sons of us too. Holy Spirit work in us mold our soul and spirit that we may become sons of God...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Songs of Solomon 6:9-10
9 My dove, my undefiled is but one; she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.
10 Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
