Greetings Friends,

“Behold, thou art fair, my Beloved.” (Song of Solomon 1:16)
The Song of Solomon is a book that gives to us the language of love between the bridegroom and HIS bride.  We are the very bride of Christ and I declare to you Jesus that you are fair.  You are beautiful.  You are majestic and glorious in all of your ways. 

He is fair and beautiful in the way HE created the universe.

John 1:1-3 1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2  The same was in the beginning with God.  3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

He spoke and from nothingness came life.  He made the space in which the stars find their dwelling. 

He made the atmosphere in which we live and breathe.  He said, “Let there be light:  and there was light.“  Oh, Jesus, you are fair in the way that you created the universe.  Awesome! 

Jesus you are fair in the way that you gave us your Word. 

Proverbs 30:5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Luke 4:4  And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Listen to the power of the Word of God in your life from
Psalm 19.

Psalm 19:7-11  7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.  8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.  9  The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.  10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.  11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Jesus is the Word of God and the Word of God is Jesus. 

Jeremiah 31:3  The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

Oh beloved is HE not fair in the way HE forgives?

John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

He taketh away our sin.  He looseth us from our sin.  He removes our sin.

Psalm 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Luke 7:48  And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

Who can forgive sins but God?  It is God who forgiveth thee thy sins.  For what purpose does HE do this? 

Isaiah 61:3  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Beloved is HE not fair in the way that HE forgives our sin.

But let me then add this, Is Jesus fair when we lie upon a bed of sickness?  Or when we stand beside the grave.  Or, when we see our world falling apart is HE not fair then as well?  Does HIS countenance change?  Is there less mercy in HIS heart for those who face great trial and tribulation?  I ask you.  Is Jesus still fair when we lie upon a bed of sickness?

John 11:4  When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Even when we are sick, HE shines with a beauty that is most comforting.  Remember Hebrews 11.

Hebrews 11:36  And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:  37  They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38  (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.  39  And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

The Lord Jesus Christ looses none of his loveliness even though we stand in the Lion’s den. 

 “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved,” (Song 5:16) 

“My beloved is mine, and I am his:” (Song 2:16) 
It is in the lonely most difficult times that we need to draw close to HIM and to know HIM.  For HE is altogether lovely.

“Behold, thou art fair, my Beloved.”

  1. Not only is He beautiful, but His desire is for us, His bride! He tenderly calls, playfully chases, and beckons us to look upon His beauty. He then returns that gaze upon us with an indelible burning of His grace into our very souls. I love Him!
