Proverbs 1

The scriptures use marriage as an allegory of the relationship that Messiah wants with his people.  The Mosaic Covenant was a Marriage Covenant between God and physical Israel which like all marriages would last until one of the parties died.   Jeremiah 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: […]
