Chuck Smith :: Sermon Notes for Song of Solomon 1

"THE CHURCH"
Intro: This is a book of marital love, a couple very much in love describe each other, and their feelings for each other. The Jews saw it as their relationship to God. The Church sees it as describing its relationship to Christ. In 6:10 the bridegroom describes the bride.
I. "WHO IS SHE THAT LOOKETH FORTH AS THE MORNING?"
A. The church lives today in a world of darkness.
1. Moral and spiritual corruption on all sides.
a. Educational system has adopted the philosophy that God does not exist, that all things evolved from ameba through processes of chance and that man is nothing more than highly evolved animal.
b. Judicial system has given over to philosophy that criminals are to be corrected, not punished, and have become more interested in protecting their rights than the innocent victims.
c. Man given to philosophy of lawlessness. Do what you want, just don't get caught.
d. Result is the moral chaos on all sides.
B. Israel in Isaiah's day was going through a similar moral crisis - put on sackcloth and lamented, "awake, awake put on strength O arm of the Lord."
1. God said, "I have not been sleeping, but you have been asleep to my plans."
2. The church has clothed herself in sackcloth and sadly lament the corrupt world scene.
a. We should put on our bridal gown and point the world toward the eastern sky.
C. The church's strength lies in her hope.
1. The weakness lies in the loss of vision.
2. This is a purifying hope, "Beloved now are we..."
3. This is a strengthening hope, "and this hope machete not ashamed."
4. Peter tells of unbelief in promise of Christ's return that will come in last days.
"In the last days scoffers will come..."
5. The darker the days, the brighter our hope, the greater our message.
II. "FAIR AS THE MOON" THE CHURCH TOWARD THE WORLD.
A. The world no longer sees the Son of God.
"The world seeth me no more."
1. The church is a living witness that He is not dead, but still shines.
2. As the moon we reflect the light of the departed sun, bearing witness that it is still shining.
3. Lifted above the world we can see what they do not see.
III. "CLEAR AS THE SUN" THE CHURCH TOWARD HER LORD.
A. Our burning devotion toward Christ.
B. Pure or clear as the sun is how He sees His bride.
1. Perfected in His righteousness.
a. "Pure as He is pure."
IV. "TERRIBLE AS AN ARMY WITH BANNERS" THE CHURCH TOWARD THE ENEMIES OF THE LORD.
A. The church should be a terror towards evil doers.
1. Those getting rich from selling drugs should be in great fear of the church.
a. Not that we are going to bear arms and apprehend.
b. We seek to Christianize their customers.
2. Herein lies weakness in church today.
a. Compromise with evil.
b. Sometimes cooperating with evil.
