The Many-Breasted One – Part 2

In Isaiah 49:15, the Lord uses breast feeding as a reminder of His love and
compassion for His people: “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And have no
compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget
you” God is clearly showing us that He cannot be put in a box or the same capacity
as people. As the human baby starts out as the most helpless of creatures and the
mother helps to feed and nourish the child, the spiritual significance is that God
helps the helpless (us).

El-Shaddia, the God of many breasts, refers to the variety of blessings that He
provides for the believer. In the Bible, breasts represent many things. In Genesis,
breasts are used for fruitfulness and that the children given by God’s grace will be
fed, well cared for, and will grow to maturity as they should. In Exodus 29:25-27,
the breast of the sacrificed animal was used as a wave offering to indicate the
believer’s love and affection toward God. This was also part of the peace-offerings
because they were waved by the priests in token of a solemn special presentation to
God. They then became the property of the priests.

The Song of Solomon (Song of Songs) makes several mentions of breasts. The
breasts are used as a picture of the perfect love, sweetness, and satisfaction that
exists between the Lord and the children of God (Chapter 1:13). Also, breasts are
used to remind us of the sufficiency, devotion, and activity of the love of the
children of God for the Lord Jesus Christ (Chapter 4:5).

There is a song by Anna B. Warner that I used to teach my Sunday School back in
Minneapolis. The simple verses speak volumes of the everlasting love of God for
us all, from new-born till we go home to be with Him:
“Jesus loves me! This I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong. Jesus loves me! This I know, as He loved so long
ago. Taking children on His knee, Saying, ‘Let them come to Me.’ Jesus loves me
still today, walking with me on my way, wanting as a friend to give. Light and love
to all who live. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. YES! Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.”
