Well, I just posted a good answer at Yahoo and thought it might as well show up here also. Why waste this good message? Let me say here, first, loud and clear SONG OF SOLOMON IS NOT ABOUT HUMAN SEX, AS YOU ALL THINK . it is …as the other scriptures, totally SPIRITUAL. Your own carnal minds leads you astray, as the carnal mind, (serpent) of Adam led him astray.
The OT LAW is that tree of knowledge of GOOD AND EVIL. Romans 3:21 clearly states this. It is also clearly revealed in R 4, 5, and 7. especially cp 7.
but due to people looking to some man, instead of studying the Word of God, they do not get these truths.
Hence, you never learn that LAW IS THE DEATH TREE.
Under law is no MERCY. There can be no MERCY under LAW.
The OT LAW shows us how bad that law thing is. OR WAS.
It is totally the work of ADAM. God has never been a god of law. He is a god of mercy; but since Adam was the ruler of this world, God let Adam have his way and that way is DEATH.
Adam took them into LAW, SO HE COULD RULE OVER OTHERS, AND BE AS A GOD.
So what you see, all through the LAW BOOKS is to show how bad IT IS TO BE UNDER LAW.
Now the horrible thing is, even after Jesus died and brought us to Grace, THE CHURCH WENT RIGHT BACK TO LAW.
They do not realize that they will one day be JUDGED AS IF BY LAW, AND THAT WOMAN’S HAND CAN AGAIN BE CUT OFF; NO MERCY.
So that is why it says, an eye for an eye = NO MERCY OR FORGIVENESS. If you sin, under law, YOU MUST DIE FOR IT. No grace. All who continue in sin, since Jesus came, WILL BE JUDGED AS UNDER LAW.
SO IF YOU HAVE ONE BIT OF SENSE, FLEE TO JESUS WHILE YOU STILL CAN. else DEATH BY LAW AWAITS YOU.
