    One could also ask, "what has kisses to do with love?" This is Solomon's love story with his Shulamite woman.

    What color was jesus skin
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:5
    Does it really matter? Jesus was born a Jew, so more than likely He had a olive skin tone.

    1 Corinthians 6:5

    I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man amongst you? no not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

    Psalms 14:3

    They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no not one.

    Acts 17:26

    And hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth,

    how can i develop the consciousness of the presence of the Holy Spirit and how do i cultivate intense fellowship with Him
  • Chris - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    Joseph, if I could add to those excellent advice given by Hogan, on spending time with the Lord in prayer & in His Word.

    As we walk out into a new day armed with the Word & the richness of a prayer time with your Father, we must seek out opportunities that will allow the Spirit of God to move amongst others. We know that the Holy Spirit moves over many hearts to "reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement" (John 16:8), but He mostly works through us who have experienced forgiveness of sins & have a new hope & new life.

    So whether you're at work, doing some shopping, meeting someone on the street, or even offering help to an elderly/infirm/needy person, ask the Spirit of God to use you to show forth the Love & Grace of God & to share the Word of God that you've been studying, to others. As you serve Him, even in a small way, you will know in your heart, by the witness of the Spirit, that the ministry you've just done was only because of Him being in you & working through you, for GOD'S GLORY only. Now, if that isn't a great confirmation of the indwelling Holy Spirit - and you will increase in your faith & can expect greater things from God.

    Spending time in the Word of God is spending time with Christ. He is the Word (see John 1:1). For me, I experience his presence which leads to prayer. I gather scriptures that I desire to pray to him about because I know he honors his Word and I know that I'm praying his will. I recommend reading the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Afterwards Read Acts chapter 1 and 2. Do this every day, devote quite time with him, listen for him. In this reading you will come to know about Jesus Christ, his passion, his heart, and feel his love. Get ready to enjoy reading the Word of God, enjoying his presence and experiencing intimacy with him. You're on the right path of desiring an intense relationship with him for the Word promises if you seek him, you will find him! God bless you and I'm so happy for you. His Love is wonderful, Christ is wonderful and his presence and spirit is amazing! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He gives me confidence, love, peace, strength, joy, comfort, hope and security. He has changed my life and has changed me. I will never be the same and don't want to be. If I can share a song with you it would be this: He's sweet I know, oh He's sweet I know. Storm clouds may rise, strong winds may blow. I'll tell the world, wherever I go. That I've found a savior and he's sweet I know.

    In my early walk with the Holy Spirit I found Him to be faithful. It was when I stop reading my Bible and stop spending time with Him. This is what I found out, it was me. I stopped calling on Jesus and seeking His presence. James 5"Draw nigh to me an I will draw near to you."nkjv Jeremiah also speaks on this chpt. 29:12-4. When I did the presence of God became so wonderful again.
  • Mishael on Song of Solomon 1:1
    You're right. What do creation studies have to do with people being born again and following Jesus.

    Millions of people may be dying without Jesus as their Saviour.

    Be blessed.

    why this verese?
  • Dolly ANDERSON on Song of Solomon 1:1
    In my King James Version Bible, the Book of Solomon is found. In my new Southern Baptist Sunday School book, it is called Song of Songs. When did this happen?? Never heard it called Song of Songs!! I don't like anything changed when it come to GOD'S WORD!!!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    If I remember correctly, it was originally titled Song of Songs, not Song of Solomon. Either way, it's still the same book, nothing changed. There are also other books in the bible that the titles have been changed from the original. The book of Acts was originally known as Luke Part II. I think there may have been one or two more, but I would have to research it.
  • If you choose to drink a glass of wine with spaghetti that's your God given free choice . You are free from the laws and customs of man . Christ is not sitting waiting to punish you over a glass or two of wine nor a can or two of beer . Now if you are around someone whom it may offend then don't drink it . Do not indulge yourselves to being high or drunk for the body's sake to put it to harm . Live your life free before God and trust him to tell you what's wrong and not another mans opinions and his teaching .
  • Love poem and song to a special lover. It's good within the context of marriage the way God intended.
  • SIR KAY on Song of Solomon 1:3
    Wine is not for kings. i mean alchohol as it alters your setting and sponsors behavior that inconsistent with your true personality. Jesus wouldn't have turn water to alchohol thus making people drunk and misbave on the account of his miracle wine. No! Its not possible, Jesus Turned water to WINE.
  • He is considering his skin as a pride to be a black for others looking at it down and ugly
  • I am of the Protestant faith and am very confused about the consumption of wine, say a glass with dinner not drunkenness? I have put this to God and asked for an answer and I always come to the same conclusion that it is not a sin, I feel no guilt at consuming a glass of celebratory wine or with dinner. Please give me your opinion.
    Thank you,

    do a bible study on fementation, or rotting,, it resembles sin, anything fremented or rottem jesus would not take part in because not only he wrote the bible but he is a nazarite.. he is our example
  • Adam - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    Hi Sandra, that's a good question. It's my opinion that since Jesus' first miracle was turning water to alcoholic wine then it must not be a sin in itself. What is says is a sin is drunkenness and giving into the many temptations that alcohol will enable through inhibiting our judgment, conscience, and holy spirit. Link and Link
  • Rowland Tedder - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    The Bible tells us in Proverbs 20:1 - Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

    No where in the Bible state Jesus turned water into an alcoholic drink and the grapes were fermented. He simple stated he turned water into wine. His word, the Bible, talks against alcohol in several places when you read it in its entirety. He will not contradict himself. Jesus is the word (John 1:1). Galatians chapter 5 also explains to us what is sin. Ask yourself, how would it effect your witness to the world. Would they take you serious seeing you drinking alcohol and trying to lead them to Jesus Praying earnestly and not self willed, God will reveal thetruth

    getting drunk is the Sin
  • Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived.
  • Antonio Robinson on Song of Solomon 1:5
    Psalms 61 David says,

    Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to you,
    When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
    For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
    I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

    Verse 8 So I will sing praise to your name forever, That I may daily perform my vows. AMEN Thank You Lord

    Beware of sparkly robes of gold: even satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. Compare everything to scripture.
    Jesus said "it is written...and quoted scripture to satans temptations
  • From the previous verse it seems that the Beloved really does not find herself attractive from a physical standpoint, which is sad even in current times. She sacrificed her appearance for the sake of her mother's children. She seems to think that her Lover is pedestals above her in terms of attractiveness. Honestly, I've become invested with the intricacies of the language and the characters that I hope she finds to love herself just as much, if not more, than she loves her Lover.
  • Annysia on Song of Solomon 1:5
    From this verse, I believe she is describing herself. She's saying that she has dark skin, which is considered "ugly" from the tone which she says it, but her personality is comely. The tents are curtains are referring to her skin, but I believe in a way she still finds those objects beautiful that's why she uses them to refer to herself.

    It could be interpreted as racist, but I believe she's just saying how she doesn't conform to the beauty standards of her time but still appreciates what she has inside.
  • I remember reading this a few years back and being shocked by how the Bible explicitly says the sexual nature of the relationship between Lover and Beloved (being lead into the King's chambers). Despite that, I love the poetic nature of this and how the song describes how much they love each other and consummate their marriage.
