Last time we unearthed the treasures from the first part of  Song of Solomon 5:15 and now we will dig into the last portion.  Here is the verse in total:

His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: His countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

Are you ready?  Let’s begin.

Countenance His COUNTENANCE: Strong’s #4758 from primary root #7200  רָאָה râʼâh, raw-aw’; a primitive root; to see, literally or figuratively (in numerous applications, direct and implied, transitive, intransitive and causative):—advise self, appear, approve, behold, × certainly, consider, discern, (make to) enjoy, have experience, gaze, take heed, × indeed, × joyfully, lo, look (on, one another, one on another, one upon another, out, up, upon), mark, meet, × be near, perceive, present, provide, regard, (have) respect, (fore-, cause to, let) see(-r, -m, one another), shew (self), × sight of others, (e-) spy, stare, × surely, × think, view, visions.

And here are the letters:

Resh  200 = Insufficiency, Poverty. Picture: Head Means: Head, Chief, Beginning, Highest, Most Important, a Person, Human Reasoning vs. Obedience.  (When we allow human reasoning to be our master, our head, poverty of the Spirit results.)

Aleph1= God – Echad – Unity, Unique (no other like it) Means: Ox head—Strength or Leader, Most Important, FirstThe Strength and Power of the leader

Hey  5 = Grace.  Means: Revelation – 5 is the number of Torah, Behold, Give Attention –(at the end of a word: comes from letter before)

Our Bridegroom King overcame human reasoning through His Obedience to God’s Word.  He is our Head, our God.  He Graces us with Revelation we need to Give Attention to.

LebanonHis countenance is as LEBANON:  Strong’s #3844 from primary root #3835  לָבַן lâban, law-ban’; a primitive root; also as denominative from H3843 to be (or become) white; to make bricks:—make brick, be (made, make) white(-r).

Here are the letters from right to left:

Lamed  30 = Blood of Messiah, Dedication to a task. Means: Staff,Goad or Stick, to Teach or Instruct, Authority, to Control, Urge Forward, a Tongue

Bet  2 =  Divide or Division     Means: House/Family; God’s word, God’s dwelling place (Temple)

Final Nun  700 Means: Life or Action

When Solomon equates Yeshua’s countenance with LEBANON he is saying:

Our Bridegroom Urges us Forward with Authority, Instructing and Teaching us what it means to be members of God’s Family.  He teaches us about Kingdom Life.

ExcellentEXCELLENT is our next word and it comes from Strong’s #977  בָּחַר bâchar, baw-khar’; a primitive root; properly, to try, i.e. (by implication) select:—acceptable, appoint, choose (choice), excellent, join, be rather, require.

Bet  2 =  Divide or Division     Means: House/Family; God’s word, God’s dwelling place (Temple)

Chet  8 = New Beginnings. Means: Fence, Gate, Tent wall to Separate, Protect, Cut off. Torah

Resh  200 = Insufficiency, Poverty. Picture: Head Means:Head, Chief, Beginning, Highest, Most Important, a Person, Human Reasoning vs. Obedience.  (When we allow human reasoning to be our master, our head, poverty of the Spirit results.)

As we grow in relationship with our Bridegroom and He teaches us about Kingdom living,

We find ourselves under the new guidelines of God’s Word, Separated and Protected from much of the world’s stress, because we are learning to be Obedient to God’s will rather than indulging in Human Reasoning. 

The last word in this verse is CEDARS.  Let’s see what trees have to do with all of this.

CedarsCEDARS  Strong’s #730  from primary root #729  אָרַז ʼâraz, aw-raz’; a primitive root; to be firm; used only in the passive participle as a denominative from H730; of cedar:—made of cedar.

Reading from right to left:

Aleph 1= God – Echad – Unity, Unique (no other like it) Means: Ox head—Strength or Leader, Most Important, FirstThe Strength and Power of the leader

Resh  200 = Insufficiency, Poverty. Picture: Head Means:Head, Chief, Beginning, Highest, Most Important, a Person, Human Reasoning vs. Obedience.  (When we allow human reasoning to be our master, our head, poverty of the Spirit results.)

Zayin 7 = completeness, Perfection, Fullness.  Means: Sword of the Spirit, Dagger, Weapon or Seed

Yeshua, in the Strength and Power of a Leader, in Unity with God, uses the Sword of the Spirit or the Word of God (according to Ephesians 6:17) to expose Human Reasoning versus Obedience to God, drawing us into Kingdom living.

In Summary

Our Bridegroom King overcame Human Reasoning through His Obedience to God’s Word.  He is our Head, our God.  He Graces us with Revelation we need to Give Attention to.

He Urges us Forward with Authority, Instructing and Teaching us what it means to be members of God’s Family.  He teaches us about Kingdom Life.

We find ourselves under the new guidelines of God’s Word, Separated and Protected from much of the world’s stress, because we are learning to be Obedient to God’s will rather than indulging in Human Reasoning. 

Yeshua, in the Strength and Power of a Leader, in Unity with God, uses the Sword of the Spirit or the Word of God (according to Ephesians 6:17) to expose Human Reasoning versus Obedience to God, enabling us to follow Him.

We are so blessed to have a Bridegroom that understands what life is all about and is willing and able to instruct us.  We don’t have to guess about how to live in the Kingdom. We can enter in with joy, knowing the best Teacher available is forever with us.

There is no God like our God.
