Loving our Lord | Song of Solomon 3:6-11 
Song of Songs 3:6-11
6 Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant? 7 Behold his bed, which is Solomon's; threescore valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel. 8 They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night. 9 King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon. 10 He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold,the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem. 11 Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.
The procession that they have been in since verse 6 is coming to an end. Travelling days are over. The wilderness is behind them and the King has returned. Go forth and see Him! "See Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man."[Hebrews 2:9] "For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." [Psalms 8:5] This reminds me of things that we have heard couples in love say. You've heard a man say of his espoused bride, she was made for me, believing that God had Him in mind when He created her and the same would be said by the woman. On the day that Christ was formed in the womb of Mary, by the Holy Ghost, Truly he was made for me and you. He came into this world and every feature was fashioned for his espoused bride. The all-knowing God could see past the day of his conception and past the day of birth and even past the day of resurrection to the day of his espousals, notice in our verse espousals is plural not singular. He could see the day that our hearts would be knit to his and we would be espoused to the King of kings. He was crowned with humanity and crowned with thorns, now is crowned with glory and honor and one day soon we will "go forth" and He will be crowned with many crowns as the four and twenty elders cast their crowns at his feet. As surely as he was made for us, we were made for him. Before you were formed in our mothers womb He knew you and loved you and your features were fashioned to his liking, he is still forming us into his image until the glorious going forth day. I am looking forward to that going forth day, when the King returns and carries us in to mount Zion, new Jerusalem. Faith will end in sight, tears will be wiped away all things made new when our King returns for his bride. Another scene is playing in my mind. He will return for us, then He will return with us! Custom in that day was that the groom would travel into the town or village on the day appointed and he would take his espoused bride back to his home he had prepared for them. I'm thinking of that day when Jesus returns with us into heaven. What a procession that will be, perhaps all the host of heaven will say come forth and see the King he has returned with His bride, He is here with the one he bought with his own blood. Let us see the King and His beloved bride. Then all the host of heaven will watch as he is crowned with many crowns. “What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see, when He takes me by the hand and leads me through the promised land, and forever I shall be with the one who died for me, what a day, glorious day that will be!!”
Press on weary travelers, the wilderness will be over in a few short days. Soon and very soon there will be a shout and we will "go forth." The King will return for us and the King return with us!! There will be a shout here removing us and I believe there will be shouts there welcoming us. The King will lead his Heavenly procession to this lowly earth to get his espoused bride and will return to New Jerusalem with her. Be ready, The King is Coming!!
