“The Pen Is In The Mastor’s Hand” and it is up to us to be ready to be used and walk in the spirit. We are His hands and feet and He will take us places that we need to lead others to. The Early Church could very well have reclined, folded her hands behind her head, and yawned in contentment but no. . . they were so full of the Spirit “they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine.” Lord, we declare Apostolic revival and growth in the our lives and this region.

1 Kings 7

But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house.

He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars.

And it was covered with cedar above upon the beams, that lay on forty five pillars, fifteen in a row.

And there were windows in three rows, and light was against light in three ranks.

And all the doors and posts were square, with the windows: and light was against light in three ranks.

And he made a porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits: and the porch was before them: and the other pillars and the thick beam were before them.

Then he made a porch for the throne where he might judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from one side of the floor to the other.

And his house where he dwelt had another court within the porch, which was of the like work. Solomon made also an house for Pharaoh’s daughter, whom he had taken to wife, like unto this porch.

All these were of costly stones, according to the measures of hewed stones, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside toward the great court.

10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits.

11 And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars.

12 And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the Lord, and for the porch of the house.

13 And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.

14 He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.

15 For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about.

16 And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits:

17 And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter.

18 And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter.

19 And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits.

20 And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter.

21 And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.

22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.

23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.

25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

26 And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths.

27 And he made ten bases of brass; four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it.

28 And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges:

29 And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work.

30 And every base had four brasen wheels, and plates of brass: and the four corners thereof had undersetters: under the laver were undersetters molten, at the side of every addition.

31 And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round.

32 And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were joined to the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit.

33 And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten.

34 And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base: and the undersetters were of the very base itself.

35 And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high: and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same.

36 For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.

37 After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size.

38 Then made he ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths: and every laver was four cubits: and upon every one of the ten bases one laver.

39 And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and he set the sea on the right side of the house eastward over against the south.

40 And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the Lord:

41 The two pillars, and the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars;

42 And four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, even two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters that were upon the pillars;

43 And the ten bases, and ten lavers on the bases;

44 And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea;

45 And the pots, and the shovels, and the basons: and all these vessels, which Hiram made to king Solomon for the house of the Lord, were of bright brass.

46 In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan.

47 And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: neither was the weight of the brass found out.

48 And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the Lord: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,

49 And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,

50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Heritage / Solomon brought all the things his father dedicated into the temple. If we take a look through your our homes we may find something that belonged to our parents or grandparents. They may not hold any earthly value and even if they did we still would hold into them. There are memories and meaning in the item we may have in our possession. Solomon had the dedicated treasures of his father and brought them to the house of the Lord. Surely he knew the value . Just as earthly treasures may be held we must truly hold to the truth our parents or others have instilled in us. Many times we hear Pastor
    bring up Charles Johnson a d Bishop Foster they put treasures in his heart and they are very valuable. Dedicated individuals that have placed treasures. What are we putting in our temple ? I pray it is treasures that will keep us righteous before Jesus Christ . Each piece of furniture in the temple had significant meaning which is a type and shadow fir us today . We must hold to the value of God’s treasures.

    Proverbs 2:4-5 ESV
    If you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

  5. 48 And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the Lord: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,

    49 And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,

    50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

    51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Solomon gave the best to God’s house!!! While king Solomon’s home was adorned with brass work, God’s temple was all gold. It shows Solomon submission to God, because even knowing he was king, he still recognized that there is a King of kings and Lord of lord, higher than him!!! No matter what comes our way Lord help us recognize that you should ALWAYS BE FIRST AND ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST OF US!!! In Jesus Name Amen

  6. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Details are everything to the Lord! I can only imagine how beautiful the Temple was! Solomon was blessed with much wisdom for his dedication to building the Temple EXACTLY how God desired it to be.

    We must follow the examples that God has laid out for each of us. We must give our all in finances, time and labor for the Kingdom of God and nothing of this world should come before it. My grandmother used to sing this simple song….

    “Turn your eyes upon Jesus
    Look full in His wonderful face
    And the things of thid world
    Will grow strangely dim
    In the light of His glory and grace”

    Lord, let me be your hands to reach, my mouth to outreach, my ears to listen for Your voice, and your feet to carry your Gospel!

  7. “And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basins. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the Lord:”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭7:40‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    The unity between king Solomon and Hiram is the unity that we as the body of Christ to continue to build in The Kingdom of GOD!!!!
    I love the unity of POFW in prayer last night and every time we come together!!!
    ‘We are strong, we are bold,,…through Christ we WILL take our city!’
    Through prayer and fasting Revival is birthed!!
    Thank you Jesus for revival that we are NOW seeing in the year 2021 at POFW we are taking back what rightfully belongs to us. Our children!

  8. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Regardless of how Solomon ended his life, which the Bible does not say whether or not he had repented of things he had done towards the end; if we know anything about what he did and his accomplishments, he started where David left off. He honored his father’s wishes by building the Temple in bringing in the dedication. Even though it wasn’t his dream, he built the greatest Temple for the Israelites worship the Lord in. He honored what his dad originally wanted to do and in that he honored the Lord. This is the manifestation of the scripture that tells us to honor thy father and mother. It doesn’t have to be our dream, we don’t always have to have a passion to fulfill it but we can honor our Father and our pastor by living out their vision

  9. I Kings 7:14 He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man and Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in bras. And he came to King Solomon, and wrought all his work.

    When God will have his glory set forth, he raises up men, and gives them excellent gifts for the accomplishment of the same.

    Exodus 32:2,3 See, I have called my name Bezaleel the son of URI, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah : And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and an understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

    I believe God has given us excellent gifts to win this City and build His Kingdom with many SOULS.

  10. This sounds to me like a great place to be! All was built with preciseness and care. God always expects the best and he should get the best. King of kings and Lord of lord’s I give you praise til we meet in the heavens!

  11. 1 Kings 7:13-14 (NLT)
    13) King Solomon then asked for a man named Huram to come from Tyre.
    14) He was half Israelite, since his mother was a widow from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father had been a craftsman in bronze from Tyre. Huram was extremely skillful and talented in any work in bronze, and he came to do all the metal work for King Solomon.

    Huram was extremely skillful and talented in any work in bronze, because he was trained and taught by his father who also was a craftsman in bronze.
    The skills and talents we use today to help build the Kingdom of God are skills and talents that have been taught to us, either by our own parents or our spiritual parents.
    So the question is, “What are we training and teaching our children today to be skillful and talented in that they can use to help build the Kingdom of God?”

  12. 48 And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the Lord: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,

    49 And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,

    50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

    51 So was ended all the work that king

    Salomon offered the best to God! We must offer the same to God 🙏

  13. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    With all the preparation and all the time spent building the house of the Lord, Solomon placed the things which his father dedicated to the house which He wanted to build. Solomon made a great structure for the Lord and it showed with the time and labor spent building the temple.

    We as the church need to spent the time giving God our very best and giving our all to furthering the kingdom of God in this time of great harvest. We have to be prepared to do the work even if it takes a great length of time but as long as we keep pushing forward. It is about having the prize in sight and never losing our faith and hope in Jesus. The reward is always going to outweigh the sacrifice when it comes to Jesus.

  14. 25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

    From the north to south, east and west the enemy and his kingdom must come down. We will win this city for the Lord Jesus Christ.

  15. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Built with time, talent, and treasures. Using these same tools, let’s make ourselves a temple available for God to use today. We have broken through and hit reset, everything is in place, now we just have to go and do the work. It’s time to serve! Thank You Jesus for the opportunity to serve Your Kingdom today!

  16. “So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭7:51‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    David left Solomon a legacy he could use to honor the Lord. That’s my goal for my kids ands home I interact with- to leave them with a skill, some knowledge or wisdom that they can use to honor the Lord. I pray we strive to better ourselves and our relationship with God so that we can help someone else with our testimony!

  17. 7:9 and these were of costly stone according to the measures of hue stones saw with saws within and without even from the foundation unto the coping and so on the outside tower of the great court.
    Amen!
    The best, for the only one true God.
    Hallelujah Jesus.

  18. 1 Kings 7: 2-3 [ amp] He built also the Forest of Lebanon cubits, its breadth fifty and its height thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars.
    [3] And it was covered with cedar above the side chambers that were upon the forty – five pillars, fifteen in a row.
    Wow it how to be huge!
    Soloman build God’s house first then his own.
    That took much longer is no reflection on Soloman for David had made every possible preparation for building for the temple, greatly reducing the time needed to finish it.
    David even left for Soloman plans and patterns for the temple and loyal friends eager to help.
    What a beautiful place this was!
    Jesus is more than enough to take this city!

  19. Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

    Theres a program here!
    1 follow in Truth as Jesus taught the apostles and they continued in the Holy Ghost
    2 Fellowship- we have to stay connected. We draw strength from each other.
    3 prayer- prayer is the pillar that upholds everything in the life of a believer

  20. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    UNMEASURED GIVING

    47 And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: neither was the weight of the brass found out.

    This verse caught my attention today because it reveals the total selflessness and dependability on GOD. Most of us measure our offering based on our income not our resources. Here we read that the offerings to the house of the LORD were brought without measure.

    Only GOD knows how much was there. He could choose to reveal the amount in eternity, but if not. It will ever be considered UNMEASURED GIVING. What would this look like today?

    Giving an offering beyond our mearsure. This is more often given through time of service and talent but not often in finances. Many families gave sacrificially to Impacting our Future Together to build our current building. In fact some are still giving sacrificially toward its debt.

    JESUS is asking us today, “what does UNMEASURED GIVING look like to you.

    iRepent

    Solomon was “square” business about his house.
    1Ki 7:5 And all the doors and posts were square, with the windows: and light was against light in three ranks.

    It took Solomon 14 years to build his house but only 7 years to build the temple. At first when I looked at this I thought “Solomon messed up…he took more care for himself than for the Lord”. Maybe that’s true, but we can’t judge Solomon for the following reasons:
    *We don’t know if there was more of an emergency to build the House of the Lord. This would cause all other things to cease and put God’s house first with everyone rushing to get it done. Solomon may have casually built his own home taking his time.
    *God drew out the plans to the Lord’s house. God made the design simple squares. Solomon probably had more of a challenge finding an architect and probably had a lot more contractors to deal with issues dealing with actual living spaces.

    Conclusion: I reckon we shouldn’t judge Solomon. He was (at this time) the wisest man on earth.

  22. 25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

    This verse of the oxen set to the north, south, east and west reminded me of our prayer last night:
    Isaiah 43:6-7
    I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
    Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

    Sons and daughters are coming home, whether they are our children or the children of the church family, Sunday school and bus children, even children that are grown up with families of their own. Fallen saints are coming home. It is the latter day rain and harvest and we have prepared ourselves to receive this harvest! Thank you Jesus!

  23. 16 And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits:

    17 And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter.

    In our new covenant we are the house of the Lord. The Lord does not operate haphazardly. Everything the the Lord does is structured and orgainized. The Lord moulds us in a particular fashion to give him honor. They design that Solomon followed is crafted to give honor to the Lord, likewise we should endeavor to fashion are life to honor the Lord.

  24. 51. So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated…

    If it was ever important or valuable to God, it still is. God doesn’t change His mind just because the times and the people change.

    Unborn babies are still important to God, and killing them is still wrong.

    One man and one woman marriage is still important to God, and formication and homosexuality are still wrong.

    I could go on with an endless list but you get the idea.

  25. We could say that Solomon finished the work of building the temple; we as Christians cannot say that the work of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is finished. We must reach our city.

  26. Solomon’s house, or the royal palace, took thirteen years to build. It was located slightly southeast of the temple and just outside the wall of the inner court. You might think that the fact that it took six years longer to build the palace than the temple indicates a greater concern for Solomon‘s ego than for God’s glory not at all. On the other hand, Perhaps The temple took only seven years because of Solomons’s seal for God to be given a place, and his thousands of labor build a holy temple(for the lord) to add a greater speed God’s is first.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  27. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Solomon brought in the things that his father had dedicated.

    We must not be so quick to throw out things that we don’t understand why they are there, just because we don’t understand. Take time to find out the history, search why we do what we do before you throw it away. We see challenges with the younger generation doing away with standards of holiness, disciplines in their lives all because they don’t have a true relationship with Jesus. They think they can go the way of the world and still be saved, but those things are there for a reason and important in our walk with God.

    There is a reason God instructed us in Proverbs 22:28
    Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

  28. Solomon fulfilled his fathers wish of completing the temple for the LORD. It took 7 years for the temple and 13 years for his house. The temple to honor God, I had read would be worth five billion dollars in today’s world! Solomon spared no expense for God’s temple. I felt it was done before his house due to its importance. Wow, I try to imagine how beautiful it must have been.
    Thank you Jesus for this day!

  29. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    We must be willing to dedicate our lives to the will and ways of God if we are going to be servants and spenders of the gospels and be willing to put worldly things and carnality to the side so that way we be able to focus on Jesus and lost instead of things of this world.

  30. And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the Lord: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,

    49 And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,

    The bread represents God provision for his people, and the lampstand characterized God as the source of life and truth. Both symbols pointed to Christ, the bread of life and the light of the world.

    And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” … Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. John 6:35

    When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

  31. “So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭7:51‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Solomon was very precise in detail and what he put in the temple he built before god. As Christians we must make sure we aren’t just putting anything in our temple and presenting it to god. We can’t just put together and present it to god and expect the blessings. God wants our heart in it. He ants our true sacrifice. What are you willing to offer into god. He doesn’t want a half put together last minute offering. He wants us to be like Solomon and pay great attention to the detail.

  32. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

  33. 7 Then he made a porch for the throne where he might judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from one side of the floor to the other.

    I don’t know who needs to hear this. . . A porch to judge. It’s biblical.

    50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

    Even the smallest most insignificant things were made in gold and with the utmost detail. All the way down to the door hinges made of gold. Nothing is too small or insignificant for us to invest the time and detail to make something worth His glory.

  34. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Many of us are left with or taught by our parents the importance of bringing forth or putting in practice lessons or advices that are sacred to have a faithful walk with Jesus, as they do/did. We too must instill in our children and the generations to come treasures that will keep their walk with Jesus faithfully. So they too can dedicate unto the Lord what has been taught before them as King Solomon did.

  35. 51 So King Solomon finished all his work on the Temple of the Lord. Then he brought all the gifts his father, David, had dedicated—the silver, the gold, and the various articles—and he stored them in the treasuries of the Lord’s Temple.
    1 Kings 7:51 NLT

    Solomon dedicated all to the Lord, he focused on it and put all his hard work in it and heart. When we build our temple to the Lord we should be doing it full hearted, and giving our all sacrificing unto the Lord. The Lord knows when we’re doing it because we want to and when we’re doing it because we have to. Everyday we should be willing to grow more in the Lord, it should be a desire to live for him and with him, be willing to change and dedicate our whole lives unto the Lord always. I pray we all realize what we need to change in order to get in right paths with the Lord, I pray we all give him all the praises and thanks for he does it all for us.

  36. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Solomon put his all into the Lords temple. We should do our best to put all our efforts to live in the right to live the Godly way. We are examples to the ones that are lost in our families , we need to be outstanding examples and show them what it is to live a Godly life, a life without sin, without worrying about your bills or your debt because God is good and you know that if you are there with God and doing your best God is by you.

  37. 10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits.

    Our foundation came at the most precious price of HIS BLOOD for our sins. SO grateful to be a servant of THE MOST HIGH GOD!!! HALELUJAH!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!

  38. 9 All these were of costly stones, according to the measures of hewed stones, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside toward the great court.

    10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits.

    11 And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars.

    We must have a solid and rich foundation in our temple. Give the best to the best. Solomon gave the Lord the best foundation for the temple of God. We must read and follow the word of God for his words bring knowledge,boldness and love to our temple to upgrade our foundation of love and faith. I pray tonight that the Lord words will give us a stronger foundation for 2021.

  39. “So all the work that King Solomon had done for the house of the LORD was finished; and Solomon brought in the things which his father David had dedicated: the silver and the gold and the furnishings. He put them in the treasuries of the house of the LORD.”
    ‭‭I Kings‬ ‭7:

  40. 14 He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.

    Do your work with excellent and the king will call on you.
    The lord is looking for people to work for in in his kingdom.

  41. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Solomon worked for the Lord to complete the house of the Lord. It takes dedication to get the work of the Lord done. The enemy would love for us to stop God’s work, but the work of the Lord must be done. Now is not the time to quit. Now is the time to continue to press forward. The world still need to know who Jesus is.

  42. “And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.”
    As I read these passages, I try to imagine how beautiful the temple and the tools of the temple must have been. How wonderful Solomon must have felt watching and overseeing the temple that his father King David wanted to build, coming together before his very eyes. The honor and joy that he must have felt as he took these items, and vessels into the temple, after waiting years for that special moment to finally arrive, must have been wonderful. I think about how it’s going to feel when we finally get to meet Jesus, how awe inspiring, joyful, uplifting, amazing, wonderful, and quite overwhelming it is going to be. I think to myself, that my mouth will be open in wide amazement at the sight of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, the creator of Heaven and Earth, and having the wonderful opportunity to meet him. Words and my imagination cannot begin to try to process how wonderful it will be. Praise Jesus, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, my Heavenly Father, all Praise to you Lord. Amen.

  43. 22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.

    Pillars in scripture often symbolize a bridge between heaven and earth. And Lilies often symbolize purity of Jesus. So Solomon basically built the prophecy of Jesus coming so that we may have eternal life in almost every room of his house.

  44. “So King Solomon finished all his work on the Temple of the Lord. Then he brought all the gifts his father, David, had dedicated—the silver, the gold, and the various articles—and he stored them in the treasuries of the Lord’s Temple.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭7:51‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Solomon did this in honor of his father but he strictly had it done for the Lord. I imagine this is all David really wanted to see come to pass but I’m sure David was smiling down at his boy and the great accomplishments that were achieved. Remember if you cant or don’t get the job done that will not stop the Lord from moving forward his plan is his plan.

  45. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    After the house was finished he honored his father and brought in all the things David had dedicated and put it among the things of the house of the Lord. We can learn from this. We learn how important it is to honor those that have pathed the way for us. We learn that that their labor is just as valuable to the building of the house of God in our lives as the things of God.

  46. 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord.

    Colossians 3:23
    23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

    We should put the same effort into everything for God as Solomon did building the temple, he was not satisfied with doing minimal work to get by, but he poured his heart and soul into building the temple for the Lord.

  47. 1 Kings 7:51
    So King Solomon finished all his work on the Temple of the lord. Then he brought all the gifts his father, David, had dedicated—the silver, the gold, and the various articles—and he stored them in the treasuries of the lord’s Temple.

    Let us bring our gifts before the Lord and use our gifts to serve in the kingdom of God and reach for the lost.

  48. 2 He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars.

    Could this be pride showing up? Solomon’s house is 100x50x30, the Temple he built for God Almighty was 60x20x120… might not have been as tall, but was bigger…

  49. Solomon didn’t take any shortcuts. He gave us all and made it the best. He did that because he knew the value of the temple. When we give it our all and make it our best that’s when we know what we value.

  50. 1 But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house.

    2 He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars.
    We are building for the Kingdom of God. Reaching this world is our jobs as saints of God is to win souls for Him.

  51. 50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

    We need to open the doors of the temple for the lost souls so they feel welcome with open arms and God has given us a place to reach them.

  52. The pillars

    6 And he made a porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits: and the porch was before them: and the other pillars and the thick beam were before them.

    I’ve hear it said “ this man was a pillar in our community” or “ she was a pillar in our church”. This means they were strong member that others could build upon. As young church we have to develop pillars as we are growing. The bigger our church gets, the stronger the pillars must be. I believe there are pillars among us already and God is going to use them to strengthen the church as we grow. I’m reminded of Aaron and Hur that held the man of Gods hands up and when his hands would drop the army would begin to lose but when his hands were up, the army of the Lord could not lose. These are the type of pillars we have to have to bold the church that God desires in Fort Worth. We must take the weight and spread it around amongst many leaders so that one is not struggling to hold the whole thing up. The more pillars that are in place the lighter the load is on everyone and the higher we can build.

  53. 40 And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the Lord:

    By definition the meaning of the name Hiram is noble. It really takes being noble to work in the house of the Lord. Yet what really caught my attention is that the king Solomon had to get from outside of the people of Israel to make the house of God great. Now, we know that God loves his people. They are chosen. But if we pay attention there are many other nobles out there that can and will make the house of God great. They come equipped with unique talents but what is uniquely about it most is that God wants them in his house and contributing to the beauty of it. The people is really what makes the temple stand and exist. There are many others like Hiram that God is trying to bring in. And those of us from within must go and give them the invitation to come and build the house of the Lord with me.

  54. The intricate details in the first part of this chapter are amazing and I can only imagine what a magnificent site that would be. Ever part was important and every worker was needed. In order for all of this to take place and be built, a lot of hearts and minds had to say “yes”. Not only that; but, to do it in a way and in a manner as being directed. Are we willing to say “yes” to whatever God is asking of us. Psalm 40:8 AMP says “I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart.”

  55. 1Solomon also built a palace for himself, and it took him thirteen years to complete the construction.

    We all should build a temple for ourselves. Find a place at home and make it your temple. Pray there daily and talk to God. This place is your place of worship.
