If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.  Romans 14:8 CSB

1 Kings 10

Again, all that God promised Solomon came to pass.  His Word will never fail me.  My part is to have a humble heart before Him.

Jeremiah 36

Our Lord is relentless about wanting people to turn from sin and back to Him through repentance.  He loves His created beings!  His desire is always for us.  The Word of the Lord is forever settled in Heaven and throwing it in the fire will NEVER stop it from operating.  God created the fire…

“Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea: Thus says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God’s creation: See! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.  Revelation 3:14,20 CSB

1 Kings 9

God warned Solomon what would happen if Israel turned away from the Lord and we have been reading in the prophets writings, exactly what did happen because they did turn away.  I find Hiram’s response to the towns interesting in that he was a master builder and could have rebuilt them anyone he wanted to.  16 tons of gold (32,000 lbs.) is an amazing amount of gold!  According to my reading, where Ophir was is disputed and these are the possibilities given:

(1) India and the Far East,
(2) Africa,
(3) Arabia.

Jeremiah 35

It is always commendable to follow the leadership commands but not more commendable than obeying God.  Obedience to their ancestor Jonadab brought a blessing yet how much more are we blessed when we obey our God!  God’s ways must always come first even (usually especially) before family.

Acts 5:29: Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than people.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.  Ephesians 2:10 CSB

1 Kings 8

Lord, may Your Glory fill our temple!  I may have a desire in the Lord but someone else may be the one to fulfill it.  I am so grateful that the Lord hears my prayers and answers!  Thank You Lord that forgiveness and mercy and compassion come with repentance! 

61 Be wholeheartedly devoted to the Lord our God to walk in his statutes and to keep his commands, as it is today.”

Jeremiah 34

Whom the Lord sets free is free indeed!

Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.  1 Corinthians 6:19-20 CSB

1 Kings 7

As I am reading about Solomon’s God given wisdom to carry forth this incredible project and hire the appropriate people who were masters in their skill, I can’t help but think of God who is the Master Designer of all.  Anything I need to know how to do, He can inform me.  But it’s not just the knowing how, it’s the practice of becoming a master at it like Hiram.  I read tons of art books, watch tons of tutorials but the only way I will ever become a master is to practice, practice, practice and practice daily.  It is no different in my walk with my God.  I can read the Bible daily, watch all kinds of faith films, listen to all kinds of preachers but unless I practice and do what I hear and see and mediate upon, and fellowship with my God, I cannot become a “master” Believer.

Jeremiah 33

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things you do not know.

This is what I’m talking about from Kings – my relationship must be so I can call to my Lord and He will answer and tell me things so that I can become a “master” Believer and doer of the Word!

My God forgives ALL my iniquity!  His city Jerusalem is a city called joy, praise and glory, the city of the Lord with all prosperity and abundance!  Lord Yeshua, You are the Righteous Branch!  You, Lord, is our righteousness!  My God restores!  My God has compassion!  Until day and night cease, His Word will stand!

I rejoice in the way revealed by your decrees as much as in all riches.  Psalm 119:14 CSB  (I rejoice in You Lord MORE than ANY riches!)

1 Kings 6

Israel has all of the dimensions and whatnot for the third Temple.  I am so excited to know that ALL Israel will be saved and how awesome it will be when they recognize that He is their complete atonement by His blood and each of them are truly His Temple whom He indwells!  Me keeping my part of the Covenant of course means the Lord will always be with me and do me good! 

Jeremiah 32

My God cares about my future and is preparing me for that time.

Oh, Lord God! You yourself made the heavens and earth by your great power and with your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for you! 18 You show faithful love to thousands but lay the fathers’ iniquity on their sons’ laps after them, great and mighty God whose name is the Lord of Armies, 19 the one great in counsel and powerful in action. Your eyes are on all the ways of the children of men in order to reward each person according to his ways and as the result of his actions.

Again, me keeping my part of the Covenant means the Lord will always be with me and do me good!  Lord, may the work of my hands do You good, bringing You glory! 

38 They will be my people, and I will be their God. 39 I will give them integrity of heart and action so that they will fear me always, for their good and for the good of their descendants after them.

Read this world for this is the absolute truth about Israel declared from the Mouth of Truth, Himself:

42 “For this is what the Lord says: Just as I have brought all this terrible disaster on these people, so am I about to bring on them all the good I am promising them. 43 Fields will be bought in this land about which you are saying, ‘It’s a desolation without people or animals; it has been handed over to the Chaldeans!’ 44 Fields will be purchased, the transaction written on a scroll and sealed, and witnesses will be called on in the land of Benjamin, in the areas surrounding Jerusalem, and in Judah’s cities—the cities of the hill country, the cities of the Judean foothills, and the cities of the Negev—because I will restore their fortunes.”  This is the Lord’s declaration.
