King Solomon made for himself a palanquin
From the timber of Lebanon.
He made its posts of silver,
Its bottom of gold
And its seat of purple fabric,
With its interior lovingly fitted out
By the daughters of Jerusalem.
— Song of Songs 3:9-10
The palanquin’s seat is of purple, which speaks of nobility and kingship. We will manifest kingship to the degree that we experience God’s redemption and receive God’s divine nature.
The Lord’s palanquin is inlaid with love from the daughters of Jerusalem. Originally, all the virgins loved only the Lord. When you become a palanquin, all the virgins will also love you. Have you noticed that when your love to the Lord is stale, the saints seem to love you less? The more you love the Lord, the more the Lord’s lovers will also find you lovable.
