Song of Songs 1:15 Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes.

God knows us better than anyone and here is telling us - PAY ATTENTION _ Pay ATTENTION, (behold, behold) YOU ARE FAIR/BEAUTIFUL - Why? Dove Eyes -

Doves, being that pigeons are in the same family, always know their way home. They Mate for Life. Then they are a picture of the Holy Spirit - which can see Jesus like nothing else - YES - You have that if you are in Christ - You Have the Eyes of The Holy Spirit.

I also share some Hebrew and the 99 Psalm in this episode.

Hidden Treasures of the Song of Songs, which is Solomon's. Digging into beauty today is so much fun as we are continuing in our Song of Solomon study and our never-ending quest to understand what are the statutes that are referred to in the 119 Psalm. And I should remark that I just am delighting in all this as it's interesting that my word for the year that God had given me is delight. And so, wow, I mean, I just delight. I really, really do in verse 15.

So we'll get into that. In English, it reads, Behold, thou art fair, my love. Behold, thou art fair. Thou hast dove eyes. Oh, wow, there's so much here, it's unbelievable, in so few words. I mean, how we can say all this is just spectacular. The Holy Spirit, no doubt, has something to do with this one, doesn't it?

As you note the dove in the end. But to begin with, he doesn't just say thou art fair. He said, Behold, listen, you know, listen up, this is big news here.

We need you to hear what I'm telling you. And he says it twice, which in Hebrew means that we're really, really emphasizing it. In fact, you can't help but note in Scripture that the one time you hear this, thou art fair, thou art fair, is in what they describe Rachel, when Jacob saw her, like, she wasn't just beautiful, she was beautiful, beautiful. And so now we have this situation where God is telling us twice, pay attention, pay attention. It's almost like verily, verily, like, get this straight in your mind, thou art beautiful. Like you need to hear this because you you do your heart is not aware of how beautiful you are.

That's, you know, just to begin with. So the word behold doesn't come there twice by accident. He's trying to say, Look, you need to hear this and really, really cool. Last night, I was with some dear friends that we do the masculine journey and we played a clip from the movie wonder where you know, the little boy is so terribly disfigured from many surgeries to his face. And he's got a helmet over his head and he's crying to his mom because he's so ugly. And his mom says, No, you're beautiful. And he says, Well, that doesn't count because you're my mom. And he says, or she says to him, Oh, because I'm your mom.

It means more than anybody else. Because I know you better than anybody. And I'm telling you, you're beautiful. Well, who knows you better than God? I mean, he knows you way better than you know yourself. And here he's telling you, pay attention, pay attention here.

Now hear this. You are beautiful. You are beautiful.

You know, we just need to hear that. And the idea of beauty of fair is what you know, as being I'm translating is beautiful, but he's saying what are fair? Well, that idea in Hebrew is a good and a pay and a hey, okay.

And I know, sometimes you wonder why does Robbie go into this? Well, because what you can see in this word is a thing of beauty. It is like the yod is the spark of God.

Right. And so here's this spark and a pay is clearly an image of a face, the picture of itself looks like a face. And so here's this lit up face. And specifically, obviously, he's going at our eyes. So we see in the light in our eyes, because he's gonna talk about doves here in a minute. But you get the picture of this light of the face.

And then the hay is just saying, this is an expression of light in the face. That is fair. Well, you know, as close you get to God, as Moses did, right, his face shown. And so this fairness is a result of you being close, you know, that Jesus lodged all night with you in your heart.

I mean, this is clearly what's going on here. And because of that, man, you are fair, you are fair. And there is a light in your face that people can see from a mile away. The closer you get to Jesus, and it's a neat thing. If you look at the word shown that was in Moses's face, it starts with the letter cuff. And as we described in the hundred 19 Psalm letter cuff has to do with proximity, how close you are to Jesus. And so the closer you get to Jesus, the more you get that shine on.

And it is going to make you beautiful. We need to hear that we need to hear it from the person that knows us better than anybody. So he tells us twice. And then he has this word, which for me, I've loved for does for lots of reasons. I've observed them for years and years and years. And they are amazing animals, amazing animals.

So what does he mean by thou has dove eyes? Well, there's a couple things I think there's a lot of things I could go into it, we'd spend the rest of the podcast on it, but to that I would highlight, okay. And I think I'm going to do them in the order that I actually think are more important. That number one, doves can find their way home unlike any other animal on earth. Okay. Homing pigeons or doves, you may not know they're in the same family as a dove, but there is no animal on earth that can find its way home like a dove can.

Okay. And so don't miss that. You know, when we have dove eyes, it means right. And we talked about before that the letter bet has to do with house. We know where our house is. It's a kingdom. We have kingdom eyes. We know where the home is.

And to know that this ain't our home is a clear understanding we need to have like we, we have eyes for home for the real home that Jesus is home is. And the other thing that, that does eyes are, or they mate for life. They choose one mate and then they only have eyes for that mate. And Oh, is this, this is a lesson for all men that, that struggle with pornography.

Me being one of them that have had this problem that how can we only have eyes for our wives? And it's like, God has given us this dilemma and so that we can hone in on how important our eyes are in the, in the process of being beautiful. Right.

I mean, and, and really cool. The word dove in Hebrew, you know, from my standpoint is, is phenomenal from it has that same beginning as the word fair. It starts with a yod. In other words, here's this light and then it's above. So it's like a saying, a continuation that we talked about in the vav, how the letter vav always means and you know, and, and, and, and it's making a connection between the two letters.

So here's more light. In other words, more light, the more of that light, and then the letter none, which is very much connected to faith. And don't forget, because again, our quest is to figure out statutes that the last day, the miracle letter, I mean, excuse me, the eighth verse in the none section or what I would call the miracle verse says, I've inclined my heart to keep your statutes always, even under the end, you see the faithfulness in that. Do you see what the, this is our commitment to God in, in, in these doves eyes. And it was no accident that, that Noah sent the dove out, right?

Because he knew he could find his way home. And he knew that all those things, you know, it's just, it's, it's something that God uniquely did. And then don't miss this, that what was it that came down and at Jesus's baptism in the form of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit has eyes for Jesus. Oh, does he have eyes for Jesus? And so as we're studying the scriptures, even these scriptures that we're talking about today, the Holy Spirit comes into our heart and says, see, see, see. And so when we have dove eyes, we have Holy Spirit eyes. Do you see that?

It's absolutely spectacular. When you look at the spiritual aspect of this, that like here, we have this picture of the Holy Spirit has only got eyes for Jesus. And boy, he can point them out to us in so many different ways. Sometimes you see Jesus in people, sometimes you G see Jesus in birds. Sometimes you see Jesus, you know, obviously in the scripture is it just leaps out and what's doing that? Well, that's your dove eyes, man. How beautiful is that? I mean, it's just absolutely beautiful. So if you're like me and you're just delighting in these dove eyes, there's no doubt that I can see that for me, one of the biggest struggles that I ever had was sin and probably still continue because I still, you know, porno is coming at every man all the time.

You don't care what you're looking at at the internet. It w they will try to lure you in and now when that moment comes, am I going to be beautiful and realize that true love, true life doesn't come from that. It comes from, right? It comes from Jesus, but it also comes from my wife. Like I should only have eyes for her because there is no life. There's no life and looking at any of those other things. There's no life and looking at anything away from Jesus. And there's no life and looking at anything away from my wife because just death and remorse and condemnation and all the stuff that Satan would love to go, you know, dunk me in for the next 20 minutes.

I mean, right there at the end of that picture. And so, man, oh God, and I think this is just a prayer. He can give us these dove eyes. Like, Lord, this is one of the heavy lifting things I can't get done. Lord, give me the eyes of a dove. Thanks for listening.
