For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;” “The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;”
The Song of Solomon is a love book of poems that express the love between husband and wife. The writer uses allegory to describe the relationship between Christ and His bride the church.
Today's message begins with an allegory depicting seasons of the year such as winter that represents the spiritual conditions that arose from sin, the wrath of God and the curse of the law. These sinful conditions made would be believers afraid to come to God, but Jesus Christ state implicitly that I have removed all those hindrances; therefore, come unto me for I am your Redeemer who has reconciled you back to God the Father.
With Jesus removing the scourge of sin and the law of the covenant, believers are now the flowers that can bloom again which represent a restored communication with God through His gift of grace and the comfort of the Holy Spirit. Believers present the flower buds that appear in spring which is Jesus Christ. Christ and His church are the married couple pictured as happy and delightful because the Spirit of God is upon them.
Christ is coming back for His bride the Church; then all of her troubles will be over; therefore, remain faithful to Christ.
