Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 17 - Morning

"When Hiram king of Tyre heard that Solomon had been anointed king to succeed his father David, he sent his envoys to Solomon, because he had always been on friendly terms with David.
Solomon sent back this message to Hiram:

'You know that because of the wars waged against my father David from all sides, he could not build a temple for the Name of the Lord his God until the Lord put his enemies under his feet. But now the Lord my God
has given me rest on every side, and there is
no adversary or disaster. I intend, therefore,
to build a temple for the Name of the Lord my God,
as the Lord told my father David’

...In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites came out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv,
the second month, he began to build the
temple of the Lord."

- First Kings 5:1-5; 6:1

Solomon Welcome's King Hiram's Ambassadors and Builds the Temple in Jerusalem    

King Hiram of Tyre (980-950 BC) in Phoenicia had assisted David build the royal palace in Jerusalem by sending carpenters and stonemasons along with cedar logs from the Forest of Lebanon.
(2 Samuel 5:11). Now with the ascension of Solomon to the throne Hiram sends ambassadors to congratulate him and to keep the doors open between Phoenicia and Israel for trade and
peaceful relations.

Solomon takes this opportunity to ask Hiram for help building the Temple. Hiram agrees to send the cedar logs down the Mediterranean coast to Joppa (Map HERE).

The information in 1 Kings 6:1 is extremely important when establishing the chronology and dating of Old Testament events. The years of Solomon’s reign have been established as 970-930 BC (this means David’s forty year reign was 1010-970 BC). So, when the text says the Exodus occurred 480 years before the fourth year of Solomon’s reign we can assume the text is referring to a 1446 BC Exodus (This is figured like this 970 BC - 4 years = 966 BC; 966 BC + 480 years = 1446 BC.)

According to 1 Kings 6:38 the Temple was completed in seven years or in 959 BC.
Solomon’s Temple would have stood completed for 373 years until its destruction by Babylon in 586 BC (or, 410 years from the time Solomon started construction until it was destroyed, 966-586 BC.)

  Christian Quote from Church History

“Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation [the Bible], depend all human laws.”
– William Blackstone

Something to Ponder??

Sanctification – from the Greek word αγιοζω which means “set apart”. The word is similar to holy, holiness, saint and sanctify. Three agents that bring about sanctification are: the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:11; 2 Thes. 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2), the Son (Hebrews 10:10), and the Word (Truth) of God (John 17:17; Eph. 5:26).
Positional Sanctification – the work of God in salvation where he sets the believer apart for his will
Experiential Sanctification – the work of man empowered by the Holy
Spirit where he sets himself apart for the will of God in his thinking, speaking and actions
Ultimate Sanctification – the final work of God where the believer is totally conformed to the image of God in spirit, soul and body

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I trust the authenticity and accuracy of the Scriptures?
If I do not trust the truth of Scripture what is my faith and assurance resting on?
I will test the scriptures and seek confirmation of their historical accuracy and reliability as the trusted source of my spiritual confidence.

    how much worse lying lips to a ruler!"
