Song of Songs 3:9
_ _ chariot more elaborately made than the “bed” or travelling litter (Song of Songs 3:7), from a Hebrew root, “to elaborate” [Ewald]. So the temple of “cedar of Lebanon,” as compared with the temporary tabernacle of shittim wood (2 Samuel 7:2, 2 Samuel 7:6, 2 Samuel 7:7; 1 Kings 5:14; 1 Kings 6:15-18), Jesus Christ’s body is the antitype, “made” by the Father for Him (1 Corinthians 1:30; Hebrews 10:5), the wood answering to His human nature, the gold, His divine; the two being but one Christ.

A chariot In which the royal bridegroom and bride might ride together in state. By this chariot he seems to understand the word of Christ dispensed by his ministers, whereby Christ rides triumphantly in the world, and believers are carried into heavenly glory.

The first material described in the structure of the chariot for the move of the Beloved in His bridal procession was the wood of Lebanon. This wood of Lebanon symbolizes the perfect humanity of the God man, Jesus Christ. The move of God in His determined plan needed the exalted and noble humanity of the sinless Christ as the structure to fulfill His desire (John 1:1, 14; 1 John 3:5; Acts 2:22-24). Only the noble, exalted humanity of Jesus is qualified to bear the move of God. May our fellowship and union with the Beloved Christ cause the humanity of Jesus to develop and be expressed through us for the move of God on earth today!

The “chariot” of King Solomon is his moving throne. Wherever his chariot was, the ruler of peace in his sovereign power was exhibited. The loving seekers of the Beloved Christ are His moving chariot to carry His authority in the gospel and make disciples of all the nations (Matt. 28:18-20).
