"To Gerry Almond and Doves regarding the Song of Solomon and connection to the rapture"
Gerry, you wrote an excellent post with regards to
the Song of Solomon. For a long time, I have felt that the Song
of Solomon held the keys to understanding the rapture of the
bride. I'm not sure if I agree with all your conclusions, but
your letter was encouraging and inciteful. My only reservation
may be in who the two armies are.
The Shulamite bride then asks the daughters of Jerusalem:
“What will you see in the Shulamite”?
The daughters of Jerusalem reply:
“As it were the company of TWO armies”.
I had another thought about the two armies, but I leave that for another time.
the way, I took the time to look up Amminadab and search for references
and meanings. Amminadab is mentioned in the Song of Solomon (KJV)
in relation to the chariots. “I went down into the garden of nuts
to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine
flourished, and the pomegranates budded. Or ever I was aware, my
soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib”.
I came across: "Amminadab — kindred of the prince. (1.) The
father of Nahshon, who was chief of the tribe of Judah (Num. 1:7; 2:3;
7:12, 17; 10:14)."
"Numbers Chapter 2 Verse 3 —
And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the
standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and
Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah."
Chapter 7 Verse 17 — And for a sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen,
five rams, five he goats, five lambs of the first year: this was the
offering of Nahshon the son of Amminadab."
There are other references that I haven't included. There is a lot to ponder here in the ones that I did include.
