Inspiration Behind The Song of Solomon Revealed
I am Owen Sypher and I love to understand the mysteries in the Bible. I got inspired to write my book from listening to someone who preached some from Song of Solomon. I started to research the book so that I could give it out in church services as small sermons. I feel like God really started to reveal more truth and understanding about this book to me over the next 3 years.
This is a beautiful story or love letter if you will between Jesus and his bride or chosen people. It uses the natural to illustrate the spiritual and has we gain an understanding of the types and shadows my hope is that it will draw the reader into a closer walk with the Lord.
Someone told me they did not want to hear lessons on this subject so I was not going to preach on the subject anymore, but felt like I had to much understanding to just let it go to waste so I started to write it down for my own sake in case I decided to use it later in life. The more I wrote the more I revelations God revealed to me. I started to joke about how it was becoming a small book and before I knew it I had decided to publish it as a book.
Then I needed to make the decision on who I wanted to publish my book. This was a new experience for me and I ended up picking a company randomly off of the internet who did a good job. I decided after it was publish that I had to revise it with new revelations and went with Litfire Press to re-publish the book with the intent of getting into book stores. This book and an e-book can be gotten off my web page at: www.sypherbooks.com
The greatest thing about writing this book outside of the understanding that I have personally gained from writing this book was on a more personal level and that was being able to do a long term project and actually finish it. As a kid we were always starting projects with good potential and never finishing it so for me to start writing a book and then publishing it was not only a personal victory but also a major accomplishment in my life and I thank the Lord for that victory.
I know that feeling Owen. I've loved researching and writing my Bible stories too and I'd love to learn more about the Song Of Solomon.

The book of Song of Solomon is a spiritual book full of allegories or pictures where God used the natural to show the spiritual. By using the keys of understanding found in the Bible the author has unlock the hidden meaning of the book of Song of Solomon.
The book of Song of Solomon is about the love that Jesus has for his bride. When looked at from this angle a lot of the verses makes more sense.
ORDER YOUR COPY:
Song 4:16: Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. KJV
We know that north is God’s direction as stated in Psalm 75:6–7.
Ps. 75:6–7 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. KJV
Since promotion comes from God, and the only direction not mentioned is north. That makes north God’s direction. That would make south man’s direction. This illustrates to me that we need the right spirit in our lives, no matter what comes our way. Whether the wind is blowing from the north or the south makes no difference; we still have the same spirit (our fragrance). What this tells me is that no matter if I am receiving the blessings of God (north wind blowing upon my life) or cursing or tribulation from others (south wind, or man’s direction), I would have the same spirit blowing out of my garden or I would show the right spirit no matter what is happening in my life, and it would be a sweet smell to the Lord, and it is all because of the things that the Lord has planted in my garden.
We have the capabilities of doing this because we understanding this verse in Romans 8.
Rom. 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. KJV
Phil. 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. KJV
I use this scripture to show that I am not going to let outside circumstances dictate how my spirit responds to the Lord. I can be content in the Lord no matter what.
