Song of Solomon 2:10-13 (NKJV) 10 My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away. 11 For lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land. 13 The fig tree puts forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grapes Give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away!

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ loves the church and gave Himself for His bride. Jesus did it because He is going to come to take all who are His out of this world. Jesus is going to present the church to Himself as a bride who is purified. Jesus has washed away our sins with His blood on the Cross on Calvary. And He sanctifies and cleanses us with the Word of God. So that we may be without blemish. That is the reason we need to study the Bible and submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit. Because our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ wants to present to Himself a glorious bride. That is why Jesus calls, “Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” When Christ returns all sorrows and struggles of life will fade away. All your troubles will be over when Christ returns. Jesus will wipe away the tears from your eyes and heal your broken heart. Every sorrow and heartache will be gone when we are in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When Christ returns and takes us home to heaven, to the place which He has prepared for us, it will have a beautiful garden of flowers. And when the New Jerusalem comes down from heaven, it will have in it an abundance of flowers. When Christ returns and we who belong to Him are called up to meet Him in the sky, there will be singing and rejoicing in the air, as we stand in His glorious presence. We will be given a glorified body and we will sing a new song to the LORD, for He has done wonderous things. The new song that we sing will remind us of the debt of joyful gratitude we owe to Jesus for His great salvation. When Christ sets up His Millennium Kingdom, the day of judgment will be over, Jesus would have already destroyed all of His enemies and all who rebelled against Him. And, therefore, it will be a time of peace, because the Great Tribulation will be over. It will also be a time when our salvation will be complete because we will be in the presence of our LORD. Our faith will be realized. Our hope will be realized. And all that will remain is love. We are able to enter into the Kingdom of God because of what Christ did for us on the Cross. He was our Substitute. Jesus took our sins upon Himself, and He died in our place that we might live. God reconciled us unto Himself through the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ. This is why all who believes in Jesus will be called-up, raptured, when Christ returns. There will be a sweet fragrance in the air, as all who believed in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Triune Godhead, are called up as Jesus says “Rise up, My Love, My fair one, And come away!”

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
