July 24, I Kings 12:16-25 The kingdom is divided just as God said it would. The division is because of years of idolatry but I wonder, had Rehoboam repented, turned to God with his whole heart and listened to the people would that make a d... Read more

July 20, I Kings 11:1-8 The end of Solomon's kingdom and of Israel's prosperity began with Solomon's lusts. How can a man have any form of piety to God with more than one wife? Here is Solomon with 1000. Certainly he did not have relatio... Read more

July 18, I Kings 10:1-13 Another famous story of Solomon's wisdom, the news of which spread and the queen of Sheba came to see. There is a principle here in that as Jesus said; “If I be lifted up I will draw all men to me”. At this time i... Read more

July 16, I Kings 9:1-12 God speaks to Solomon and things seem pretty straight forward. If you and the people do what they are supposed to do then Israel will remain powerful forever. God even defines what it will take for Him to cut off I... Read more

July 15, I Kings 8:54-66 Solomon finishes his prayer and note his position, he knelt humbly before God's altar with his hands raised. The king of Israel humbled himself before God and in view of the people. I think that's significant, I c... Read more

July 14, I Kings 8:31-53 Solomon's prayers and pleas to God are prophetic. He acknowledges that all men will sin and that the only way to forgiveness is through the temple of God (remember that the ultimate temple of God is Christ). He al... Read more

July 12, I Kings 8:1-21 Solomon finished the temple and at it's dedication he brings up the critical piece, the ark of the covenant. Note where it's been, in the city of David. Does that phrase ring a bell somewhere else? Jesus was born ... Read more

July 11, I Kings 7:12-51 Solomon hired Hiram of Tyre to make the temple items. Hiram was apparently the most skilled artist working in metals and Solomon spared no expense. Items to note, all of the pieces that were outside the temple are ... Read more

July 10, I Kings 7:1-11 Solomon built for himself at least two houses and one for his wife, Pharaoh's daughter. His first house took 13 years to build, nearly twice as long as the temple but we don't know how many people were involved. It... Read more
