Under the pen-name Kyria Child, Mieke van Ingen writes about whispers from Heaven, spiritual poems that touch the heart. You can read these mystery poems on the next pages of this website, written since 2016 up to now.
Numerous rhymes are imprinted on my heart during night-time hours, while some others come about when i’m pondering them during the day. I’ve experienced these impressions like a sound of an orchestra being whispered in the ear of a little child.
My wish to you, the reader will be, that the Author of this still small voice, may be allowed to imprint in you His beautiful secrets. And that you will sense His intimacy, as He makes Himself personnally real.

Since these night-time experiences, i’ve grown especially fond of the Song of Solomon, as it has so many layers of meaning and wisdom.
Song Of Solomon
Song of Solomon, also known as Song of Songs of Solomon, Canticle and Canticle of Canticles, is a book of the Hebrew Bible.
The Song of Songs of Solomon is love poetry and celebrates the beauty of a wedding and the joy of love between man and woman. In the ancient world all poetry was sung, and the Song is, in fact, the lyrics to a song collection. It was performed by singers consisting of a male lead, a female lead and a chorus. Song of Songs should probably be thought of as a concert piece created for an aristocratic audience in Solomon’s court. It is Solomon’s greatest song because it is about the love of Yahushua (the hebrew name of Jesus).
So read The Song of Solomon by the wonderful Passion Translation and get into this love story. Creation is a love story and your life is to be a love story between you and Abba Father. Your life can never be complete until you draw near to Him. So come into His chambers, into the secret place, until your life becomes a true love story sealed with a kiss of worship.
You might want to find out more about this creation being a love story. There is a mystery hidden in the festivity of a jewish wedding. You can read on this website about the deeper meaning of A Jewish Wedding, the celebration of the bridegroom and the bride, and the mystery of your existence. For all existence of life there is a Divine Love Story.

The biblical King Solomon was known for his wisdom, his wealth and his writings. He became ruler in approximately 967 B.C. and his kingdom extended from the Euphrates River in the north to Egypt in the south. His crowning achievement was the building of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Almost all knowledge of him is derived from the biblical books of Kings I and Chronicles II.
Solomon was the son of King David and Bathsheba. Solomon was not the oldest son of David, but David promised Bathsheba that Solomon would be the next king. When David’s elder son Adonijah declared himself king, David ordered his servants to bring Solomon to the Gihon spring where the priest anointed him while David was still alive. Solomon inherited a considerable empire from his father.
Although Solomon was young, he soon became known for his wisdom. The first and most famous incident of his cleverness as a judge was when two women came to his court with a baby whom both women claimed as their own. Solomon threatened to split the baby in half. One woman was prepared to accept the decision, but the other begged the King to give the living baby to the other woman. Solomon then knew the second woman was the mother.
People from surrounding nations also came to hear Solomon’s wisdom. He composed 3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs. He wrote the Song of Songs, the Book of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.
One of the most celebrated visits to Solomon was that of the Queen of Sheba, who came from southern Arabia. Historically, Arabia was a country rich in gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Solomon needed Sheba’s products and trade routes; the queen of Sheba needed Solomon’s cooperation in marketing her country’s goods. The queen came to Solomon with camels carrying spices, gold and precious stones. She asked him questions and riddles and was amazed at his wisdom.
Solomon accumulated enormous wealth. He controlled the entire region west of the Euphrates and had peace on his borders. Kings I states that he owned 12,000 horses with horsemen and 1,400 chariots. Remains of stalls for 450 horses have in fact been found in Megiddo. So far so good, one would say. But in 1 Kings 10:14 it is written: Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year (probably one particular and exceptional year, probably also the year of the queen’s visit), was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold. The correspondence with the number of the Beast in Revelation 13:18 and of the number of the people in Ezra 2:13 is in all probability not altogether accidental. It is possible, that the number of the beast is a reminiscence of this number of talents. For we may surely see in this statement of Solomon’s prodigious wealth an indication of his worldliness, the turning point, perhaps, in his estrangement from God. It is certainly remarkable that while he is here represented to us as a “royal merchant,” the mark of the beast is on the buyers and sellers as written in Revelation 13:17.
Could “The love of money” may have been the beginning of his decline, it gets a lot more worse later on when he gets older. Because in chapter 11 of the book of Kings we read: King Solomon married many other girls besides the Egyptian princess. Many of them came from nations where idols were worshiped —Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon, and from the Hittites— even though the Lord had clearly instructed his people not to marry into those nations, because the women they married would get them started worshiping their gods …
… worshiping their gods meant burning incense and sacrificing their own children !
And sure enough, Solomon began to worship Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom, the horrible god of the Ammonites. He even built a temple on the Mount of Olives, across the valley from Jerusalem, for Chemosh, the depraved god of Moab, and another for Molech, the unutterably vile god of the Ammonites.
It is written that the Lord was very angry with Solomon and raised to power rebel leaders. So during Solomon’s entire lifetime, Rezon and Hadad were his enemies, for they hated Israel intensely. Now, read for yourselves in 1 Kings chapter 11 what happened next to the twelve tribes of Israel. Because this history has everything to do with the situation that Israel and the world face to this day ! And as you absorb this important history, notice in verses 13, 32 and 36 what the Lord declares about Jerusalem !
