Question? What are the Little Foxes in Solomon 2:15?
(Song of Solomon 2:15) Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
The book of Song of Solomon is also known as the Book of Canticles or little song.
it is Poetic and Practiclal in Nature, the Jews consider the Book of Song of Solomon as the Holy of Holies of Scripture and RESTRICTED its reading from young priest to be RESERVED ONLY for the eyes of the Elder or Aged men of the cloth.
The LITTLE FOXES in question can be liken unto LITTLE SINS in the life of the believer or False Doctrines in a Church Fellowship.
These SINS or False Doctrines (little foxes) can AND WILL destroy (spoil) the believer and a church (Vine) if left unchecked.
All Churches and Believers are VULNERABLE to Sin and False Teaching ESPECIALLY the New (baby) Christian or a recently assembled bible church (little grapes).
Satan LOVES nothing more than to CORRUPT the new baby christian or church with bad doctrine, he constantly seeks out any believer or church young or old that he can EAT UP (devour) in sin or false doctrine, BECAUSE he knows that once they have been corrupted they are of no use to the Lord and his (satan’s) BEST WEAPON to keep the lost Blind to the gospel and in a complete fog as far as sound doctrine is concerned.
(1 Peter 5:8) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
The Christian NEEDS to be on the LOOKOUT for the LITTLE FOXES that satan TRIES to use to derail their lives and delineate them from the truths of God’s Word.
The Church and the Pastor Young or Mature is ADMONISHED to defend the Word of Truth at all cost like a shepherd who guards and protects his sheep (Assembly – Little Grapes) from THE WOLVES of False Teachers and Doctrine.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
