God owns everything, but He does not possess everything, even many of His own. He has bought them with His blood, but they are not possessed of Him. The intent here is for us to see a picture of the Master as our Bridegroom and for us to love Him more each moment as we mature to be His Bride. With as much symbolism as the Book of Revelation, Song of Solomon is veiled in language understood only by the one whose spirit loves and seeks the Lord. It is taught only, as all Scripture, by the Author, the Holy Spirit, to your spirit first. Otherwise, Song of Solomon becomes doctrinal, historical, poetical, or even carnal. "Draw me" should be our prayer, as it was the Shula-mite lady's. Cry out to Him, "Overcome me and my wants and desires. Overcome my pride and my egotism. Overcome my flesh and draw me to Yourself, O beautiful Bridegroom of the church." We have read of the King of kings, of the Lord of lords, and of the Holy of Holies. Come now and bask in the wonder of the Song of songs.
