“The Song of Solomon”

Chapter 3

Work by S.Y. Kharchenko


“By night on my bed I sought him whome my soule loueth. I sought him, but I found him not” (Song.3:1)


We are shown how Church of the first born in the Tabernacle of heaven is anxiously awaiting the Messenger sent by her for her “yongest brother” (Gen.42:15-16). The Scripture compares their spiritual unity with marital intimacy and speaks of their joint future ministry - the beloved seeks on her bed the one whom her soul loves. The place that a husband should take on this bed is empty. In this verse, we are shown the time on the eve of significant changes in the Church, because this man, ascending his throne, will begin an active building of the house of God.


“I will rise now, and goe about the citie in the streets, and in the broad wayes I will seeke him whom my soule loueth: I sought him, but I found him not” (Song.3:2)


The Evangelist, going about “the citie in the streets”, in the wide gates and broad way (Matt.7:13), will come “not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke.5:32). He, preaching the word, rebuking, reproaching and exhorting “with all long suffering & doctrine” (2Tim.4:2), will open the eyes of many blind (Is.42:7). The “Pharises and Scribes” will murmur at him “saying, This man receiueth sinners, and eateth with them” (Luke.15:2). But joy “shall be in heauen ouer one sinner that repenteth, more then ouer ninety and nine iust persons” who do not see the need for repentance (Luke.15:7).

The phrase, “I sought him, but I found him not” is repeated twice. The Evangelist is nowhere to be found. He will become hated in this world and will be executed. His grave will be “with the wicked” (Is.53:9). But by the hand of God, he will be pulled out of the depths of the grave and raised up “into a loft” (1Kings.17:19). The resurrection of the Evangelist is mentioned in the book of Genesis, in the book of the Acts of the Apostles, in the book of 1 Kings and in the three Gospels.

“¶ Then Pharaoh sent and called Ioseph...” (Gen.41:14)

“And Paul went downe, and fell on him, and embracing him, saide, Trouble not your selues, for his life is in him” (Acts.20:10)

The Evangelist will be resurrected by the holy Ghost. It is said: “and fell on him, and embracing him” (Acts.20:10). Compare it with the verse (Song.2:6).


“The watchmen that goe about the citie, found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soule loueth?” (Song.3:3)


In those days there will be a great persecution of the Church. Having killed the faithful Martyr (Rev.2:13), these “watchmen” will start looking for people who love the Word of God, preach His Kingdom and testify about the resurrected Evangelist (Rev.6:9). This verse shows the way Christians will go. A bold confession of faith in front of people in authority shows us that they will openly preach the Word of God. They will not renounce their faith - those who are persecuted to death will be raptured up “vnto God, and to his Throne” (Rev.12:5).

In the heavenly Tabernacle, a voice will be heard, weeping, and sobbing, and great mourning: “In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not” (Matt.2:18).


“It was but a litle that I passed from them, but I found him whome my soule loueth: I helde him, and would not let him goe, vntill I had brought him into my mothers house, and into the chamber of her that conceiued me” (Song.3:4)


In the book of Acts of the Apostles, we are shown the ministry of Christians after the resurrected Evangelist accepts the promise of the holy Ghost from God (Acts.2:33). This will happen in the Jubilee year 2050. A person who, for the sake of gaining of Jesus Christ, leaves the customs of the world, will be filled, like an empty vessel, with the holy Ghost. It is said about him: he is the one “whome my soule loueth”. Any person who is filled with the holy Ghost (conceived) can no longer be abducted from the hand of God. It is said: “I helde him, and would not let him goe, vntill I had brought him into my mothers house”. In this verse we are shown the rapture of the soul of a men who, fighting by the word of their Testimony, did not love his life to death (Rev.12:11). The soul of a Christian, after it “passed”, will immediately be brought to the heavenly Tabernacle. “Reapers” who kill the body cannot kill the soul (Matt.10:28).

There will be many people who perished during the harvest period, but this does not mean that all these souls will be brought to the heavenly Tabernacle. Only those “ears” will be collected in it, which “Ruth the Moabitesse” will pick up in the field “after the reapers” (Ruth.2:3).

What does “my mothers house” and the chamber of “of her that conceiued me” mean?

The body of the Lord Jesus Christ will be made up of a host of living “stones”, which are divided into three groups according to their importance: called, & chosen, and faithfull. The Scripture compares  faithful to a woman clothed with the Sun, who, being with childe, cries out from the pains and pangs of birth (Rev.12:1,2). As well, he compares them to Mary, who, after being espoused to Joseph (the Evangelist), “was found with childe of the holy Ghost” (Matt.1:18). Therefore, in the verse (Song.3:4), the heavenly Tabernacle is called the house of the mother, and its first compartment, in which chosen will be conceived, is called the chamber. Each of them, at the appointed time, will be brought to the heavenly Tabernacle. Gathering them is compared to harvesting the ears during the wheat harvest. Until the end of this harvest, Church of the first born will pick up ears “in the field after the reapers” (Ruth.2:3). John in the heavenly Tabernacle saw the gathered “ears”, he saw “vnder the altar, the soules of them that were slaine for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held” (Rev.6:9).

The process of “conseiving” is shown to us in the 4th chapter of the book of 2 Kings. The poor widow had a wonder source of oil. Elisha told her to lock the door behind her and fill the empty vessels taken abroad. The sons “brought the vessels to her, and shee powred out” (2Kings.4:5). Many vessels were filled with oil in this way.

In this type we are shown the acceptance of the holy Ghost by believers. This descent of the holy Ghost was predicted by the prophet Joel: “And it shall come to passe in the last dayes (saith God) I will powre out of my Spirit vpon all flesh” (Acts.2:17).

In this type, the sons of the widow are evangelists preaching the Kingdom of God. Empty vessels - people who have just believed, which were taken “abroad”. The widow who filled the vessels with oil is Church of the first born in her “mothers house”.


“I charge you, O ye daughters of Ierusalem, by the Roes and by the Hindes of the field, that ye stirre not vp, nor awake my loue, till he please” (Song.3:5)


In the epistles of the Apostle Paul to Timothy, we are shown the great ministry of the Prophet, who will be going before the face of the Lord to prepare ways to Him. In the last chapter, Scripture prophetically says on behalf of the Evangelist: “For I am now readie to bee offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I haue fought a good fight, I haue finished my course, I haue kept the faith” (2Tim.4:6,7).

The concluding words of the second epistle say that Timothy was made “the first Bishop of the Church of the Ephesians”, and Paul, after he “was brought before Nero the second time”, was executed.

The second Epistle vnto Timotheus, ordeined the first Bishop of the Church of the Ephesians, was written from Rome, when Paul was brought before Nero the second time.”

In these words, Scripture tells us about the execution of the Evangelist, after he will be brought before the governor from prison for the second time. It is said: “He was taken from prison, and from iudgement” (Is.53:8). And when God raises him from the dead, he will make him the High Priest. Type of this event is the condemnation of Jesus Christ to be crucified. He was sentenced to death when He was brought before Pilate for the second time (Luke 23).

In the sixth verse, Scripture asks us the question: “Who is this...?” (Song.3:6). We are shown the resurrected Evangelist who has become the Anointed of God. In the Jubilee year 2050, another High Priest will arise up, now he will be from the tribe of Joseph, but he will be after the order of Melchisedec.


“¶ Who is this that commeth out of the wildernes like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrhe and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?” (Song.3:6)


Myrrh symbolizes his first ministry, when he will be ordeined “a Prophet vnto the nations” (Jer.1:5). Frankincense symbolizes “an vnchangeable Priesthood” (Heb.7:24).

The seventh chapter of the book “To the Hebrews” speaks of the greatness of the two Anointed of the Lord. Since verse 15, Scripture speaks of the Priesthood of Prince Michael.

“But this man because hee continueth euer, hath an vnchangeable Priesthood.

Wherefore he is able also to saue them to the vttermost, that come vnto God by him, seeing hee euer liueth to make intercession for them” (Heb.7:23,24)

This man will not need to daily, “as those high Priests, to offer vp sacrifice,” “for this he did once, when he offered vp himselfe” (Heb.7:27).

God will deliver him “out of all his afflictions”, give him strength and authority, grant him wisdom and favor, make him ruler over “Egypt” and “all his house” (Acts.7:10). He will be entrusted with the construction of this house. Joseph told his brothers: God “hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house” (Gen.45:8). He will be given a title and a new name - the Prince of life (Acts.3:15). Scripture calls him: Prince Michael.


“Behold his bed, which is Solomons: threescore valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel” (Song.3:7)


We are shown the ministry of Prince Michael among the firstborns in the heavenly Tabernacle. If we add the required number of zeros to the number “threescore”, then we get the real number of “valiant men” in the heavenly Tabernacle. In the sixth verse they are shown to us as “pillars of smoke”. The time will come when these pillars becomes the pillars (foundation) of the future structure - the Temple not made with hands. In the new Jerusalem (a type of the Temple not made with hands), these pillars are foundations of “the wall of the citie” (Rev.21:14).

We are shown valiant men in the Tabernacle of heaven, devoid of flesh and blood. Scripture, comparing them to pillars of smoke, shows us that they are spirits, which have image of a body. The smoke that we see but cannot touch is best suited for this type. For example, God is shown to us as “a great cloude, and a fire infoulding it selfe, and a brightnesse was about it” (Ezek.1:4).

The imprisonment of Joseph in prison, where everything was given into his hands, and he, having become the initiator of all ideas, was successful, is a prototype of the joint ministry of Prince Michael and Church of the first born. It is said: “The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing, that was vnder his hand” (Gen.39:23). The imprisoned “þe kings prisoners” (Gen.39:20) is a type of the firstborns in the Tabernacle of heaven.

“And the keeper of the prison committed to Iosephs hand all the prisoners that were in the prison, and whatsoeuer they did there, he was the doer of it” (Gen.39:22)

God is shown to us in the type of the  keeper of the prison. The rise of Joseph by Pharaoh and his wise rule “ouer all the land of Egypt” (Gen.41:43) is another type of the ministry of Prince Michael. If in the first prototype we were shown the leading role of Prince Michael in the heavenly Tabernacle (High Priest), then in the second prototype (Joseph’s reign over all Egypt) we are shown his leading role on earth during the harvest (Lord). God is shown to us in the form of Pharaoh. Pharaoh said to Joseph:

“Thou shalt be ouer my house, and according vnto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater then thou” (Gen.41:40)

In the second chapter of the book of Acts of the Apostles, we are shown the events that will take place on earth in the Jubilee year 2050, this is “the acceptable yeere of the Lord” (Luke.4:19). On the day the Evangelist is anointed, the holy Ghost will be poured out on the Apostles whom he chooses (Acts.1:2). Scripture, in the words of Peter, says to all amazed and perplexed people: “God has made that same Evangelist, “whom ye haue crucified, both Lord and Christ” (Acts.2:36)

“For Dauid is not ascended into the heauens, but he saith himselfe, The Lord said vnto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand” (Acts.2:34)

Indeed, “Dauid is not ascended into the heauens”; the resurrected Evangelist will enter into heaven. He will be given power “in heauen and in earth” (Matt.28:18).

Saying about the ministry of Jesus Christ, Scripture reveals the Evangelist to us. Their ministries are so similar that people, even knowing about the Evangelist, in the Scriptures would hardly distinguish them. No wonder the Scripture in the sixth verse, showing the Anointed of God, asks us the question: “¶ Who is this ...?” (Song.3:6).

The daughter of Poti-pherah, the Priest of On, given to Joseph as a wife, is a type of Church of the first born (Gen.41:50). The second chariot (Gen.41:43), on which Joseph rode, is another type of the bed, “which is Solomons” (Song.3:7).

Prince Michael will appoint Elders in every cities (Tit.1:5) and will distribute “that bread of life” (John.6:48). He will gather  a great multitude of people dressed in white robes (Rev.7:9) at the throne of God, just as Joseph, opening the storehouses and selling grain, acquired servants for Pharaoh.

When Joseph gathered grain in the years of great abundance, after some time he stopped counting it.

“And Ioseph gathered corne as the sand of the sea, very much, vntill he left numbring: for it was without number” (Gen.41:49)

We are shown one feature of the Word of God - the number of all types of Scripture is incalculable, there are countless numbers of them.

In the verse (Song.3:6), we are shown the resurrected Evangelist, who has collected spiritual food, which is innumerable, in all cities. It is indicated by the phrase: “all powders of the merchant”. Powders of the merchant are the same type as full grain storehouses. The word powder is used in the sense of phraseological unit: “as the sand of the sea”. It is impossible to count all the grains of sea sand and all the particles of powders of the merchant.

The entire harvest time will be divided into two periods - until 2050 and after it. In the years of “great abundance” the Evangelist will gather “food” in all cities. In 2050 there will a famine come in “all the land” (Gen.41:54); there will be a famine “of hearing the words of the Lord”.

“¶ Behold, the daies come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos.8:11)

The firstborns, having received lessons on the eve of mastering a double-edged sword (Eph.6:17), will become the most experienced warriors in war.


“They all hold swords, being expert in warre: Euery man hath his sword vpon his thigh, because of feare in the night” (Song.3:8)


The phrase: “because of feare in the night” - says that the war with the devil and his angels continues.

So, the first three verses of the paragraph show us the greatness of Prince Michael, who will become the ruler over the whole earth in the Jubilee year. The other three verses show Jesus Christ will be made perfect on the DAY of Pentecost. The chariot of King Solomon is another type of the Lord Jesus Christ “in the day of his espousals”.


“King Solomon made himselfe a charet of the wood of Lebanon” (Song.3:9)


We are shown the greatest event in the history of mankind - the marriage (Rev.19:7) and the reign of the Lord Jesus Christ. He will become “an high Priest after the order of Melchisedec” (Heb.5:9,10).

On the DAY of Pentecost the seventh Angel will sound the trumpet, and the bridegroom will go out “the bridegroome goe forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet” (Joel.2:16). Jesus Christ, uniting with called, & chosen, and faithfull, will become one with them, as a single organism. This Greatness is shown to us in the vision of Ezekiel (Ezekiel.1), in the vision of Daniel (Dan.10:6), in the vision of John (Rev.10:1), and in the vision of Elisha (2Kings.2:11).

This is the time when the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Anointed One of God, “and he shall reigne for euer and euer” (Rev.11:15).

Loud voices will be heard in the heaven, and the people who remain on earth will see the sign in the sky. They will “see the Sonne of man comming in the cloudes, with great power and glory” (Mark.13:26). The cover of purple (red-violet) is a symbol of royal power.

The “bed of Solomon” (palanquin) loses to the “chariot of king Solomon” in its imperfection. This is understandable, the joint ministry of Prince Michael and Church of the first born is limited in time, and it is auxiliary.

“Now King Dauid was olde”, he was constantly cold and he could not keep warm. The king’s servants decided to find for him a young virgin who would warm him with the warmth of her body, lying on his chest, on his bed. And they found and brought her to the king. But, despite such a degree of closeness between them, the king knew her not (1Kings.1:1-4)

“And the damosell was very faire, and cherished the king, and ministred to him: but the king knew her not” (1Kings.1:4)

In this prototype, we are shown the spiritual unity of Prince Michael and the Church of the firstborn without being united into one body - there was no conjugal relationship between Avisaga and King David.

Joseph did also not know his wife, “till shee had brought forth her first borne sonne”. He, “being raised from sleepe” and we already know what this dream means, “did as the Angel of the Lord had bidden him, & tooke vnto him his wife: And knewe her not, till shee had brought forth her first borne sonne, and he called his name Iesus” (Matt.1:24,25). Joseph and Mary is another prototype of Prince Michael and Church of the first born.


“He made the pillars thereof of siluer, the bottome thereof of gold, the couering of it, of purple; the midst thereof being paued with loue, for the daughters of Ierusalem” (Song.3:10)


Jesus Christ, having become perfect, will become the author of eternal salvation. The tree in this chariot denotes those who are called, silver -- chosen, gold -- faithful.

In that hour, 70 weeks will be fulfilled, which were determined to the people of Israel. In an instant, their transgression will be finished, there will be made an ende of sinnes, and their iniquities will be reconciled (Dan.9:24). The “daughter of Zion” will be forgiven, just as the woman caught in adultery was forgiven (John.8:3-11). The Lord God will pour up the spirit of grace and of supplications into every vessel “to the brimme” (John.2:7) in the house of David. It is said: “the midst thereof being paued with loue, for the daughters of Ierusalem” (Song.3:10).

In other types, the faithful are shown to us in the form of four living beings. John saw “in the middest of the throne, and round about the Throne, were foure beastes full of eyes before and behinde” (Rev.4:6). Ezekiel also saw four living creatures, over whose heads there was a vault and the likeness of a Throne (Ezek.1:26). Chosen and called in this vision are shown to us in the form of wheels, the rims of which were also full of eyes around them.

The heaven chariot is shown to us in the first chapter of the book of Genesis in the image of a man, created in the image and likeness of God. The body of a man is faithful, his limbs are chosen and called. The body and limbs are the Church (the body of Christ), the head of a person is the Throne of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the books of the New Testament, the heavenly chariot is shown to us in the form of a man. His body is a prototype of the firstborns (faithful), his limbs are a prototype of chosen and called. The body of Christ (body and limbs) is a prototype of the Church, it will grow, edifying of “it self in love” (Eph.4:16), through the sacrificial service of each of its cells. The human head is a type of the Throne of the Lord Jesus Christ.


“Goe foorth, O yee daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the Crowne wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladnesse of his heart” (Song.3:11)


Scripture addresses the remnant of the people of Israel: “Come out, and meet the Lord Jesus Christ.”

We are shown a mother who crowns her son in the day of his espousals . This is a prototype of the sacrament of the union of Christ and the Church through the action of the holy Ghost. The Scripture compares this sacrament with a rite that is understandable for everyone - marriage.

The birth of the Son of God occurs in two stages. He, who “is in the bosome of the Father” (John.1:18), is revealed to shine on the earth (Gen.1:16-18). His physical birth from a virgin was only doing himselfe of no reputation and tooking upon him the forme of a servant (Phil.2:7,8). And now, thanks to the future ministry of the second Moses (Heb.3:1-4), He will be born of a mother - of the holy Ghost. At the onset of the DAY of Pentecost, “the mysterie of God should be finished” (Rev.10:7). Christ and the Church will become one through the action of the holy Ghost. God will say: “Thou art my sonne, this day haue I begotten thee” (Ps.2:7). This will be the Day of the gladnesse of his heart. Scripture shows us the great joy of the whole city through type:

“And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast, the same day that Isaac was weaned” (Gen.21:8)

At this stage, the construction of the house of God will be completed, and the construction of the Temple not made with hands will continue.

Why are Prince Michael (Song.3:6) and the Lord Jesus Christ behind him (Song.8:5) shown to us coming up from the “area”, which is characterized as the wilderness? The Scripture word wilderness denotes Heaven and Earth outside of our Universe. This space is called a wilderness because of the small number of its inhabitants. Scripture tells us about the number of inhabitants of new Jerusalem after the DAY of Pentecost: “Now the city was large and great, but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded” (Neh.7:4). In eternity, Heaven and Earth will be filled with life, and they will be filling continuously (Gen.1:28).


P.S. A rabbi who lived in the 10th century compared the book of The Song of Solomon with a lock, the key of which is lost and now, we are not able to open it. But this is not the whole truth. If a person does not trust the Word of God, then for him the key to the whole Scripture is lost! For the entire Christian world, Scripture is a lock, but there is no key to it. And only a person who trusts the Scriptures receives this key.
