Contrary to what we are made to believe, there are men and women who are happily married. They remained married and they still love each other, even after many years.
The Long Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs in the Bible) is relevant in our society today. Long, because almost 3,000 years after it was written, its principles still remain. And, a society which has as its ruler the devil, opposes it big time. Today it is regarded as nonsense that a man should marry only a woman. Nothing is fixed. One’s romantic choices depend on one’s mind or preference. We are told that a man can become a woman if he believes he is one, and vice versa. There are so many gender variations that it needs serious studies to keep up with it.
Things have changed so much because:
- The Song of Songs not only points to man/woman relationships, but most importantly to the Bridegroom, Jesus and His future Bride, the Church.
- Just as in God’s design for marriage, love and fidelity is of prime importance, so it is in the God Designed Marriage of Jesus and the Bride.
It is interesting to think that the Song was written by king Solomon of Israel who had 700 wives and 300 concubines. But even if he didn’t remain loyal to one woman, in writing the Song, he was inspired by the Holy Spirit, like all the writers of Scripture. That explains why the principles are true, no matter what.
Even though written long ago, the war against God’s marriage principles flared up in our ‘modern, enlightened’ age. Yet we know one thing: the Glorious King is the Victorious King. We just have to cling to the King, and our future is secure.
