Jesus Married a Black Woman

Feb 2, 2020

The Song of Solomon is a beautiful picture of the relationship of Jesus Christ and the church, His wife. Jesus Christ would be Solomon and the church would be the woman in the book of the Song of Solomon. If we read in this verse, the woman identifies herself as a black woman.

Song of Solomon 1:5-6 I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

Uncoincidentally, do you know who was the very first convert in the bible?

Acts 8: 27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship.

Acts 8: 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

God gave a beautiful picture here. He heard the gospel, got saved and got baptized. This person was a black man.

What would God choose a black person?

Why would he choose a eunuch and a Gentile? Why would God choose a person who was despised by the Jews?

This is a beautiful picture where the person recognizes that he is despised and broken by the world, a servant of servants, and humbled before Jesus Christ. This is the person who gets saved.

We would not want to be the Jews. The Jews are currently divorced and cast away. But that’s not to say that God is done with Jews. God will work on the Jews again during the Tribulation. It is better to be a Black because in this age, God is working on the Gentiles.

Romans 11:25-26 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
