Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 18 - Morning

"Then King Solomon summoned into his presence at Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the Lord’s covenant from Zion, the City of David. ... When all the elders of Israel had arrived, the priests took up the ark, and they brought up the ark of the Lord and the tent of meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it. The priests and Levites carried them up,...
The priests then brought the ark of the Lord’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim...When the priests withdrew from the Holy Place, the cloud filled the temple of the Lord. And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled his temple."

- First Kings 8:1-4, 6, 10-11

The Ark is Set in Solomon's Temple    

The temple was completed in the eighth month (Bul, Oct/Nov) of Solomon’s eleventh year as king according to 1 Kings 6:38, but it appears Solomon waited until the following year in the seventh month (Ethanim, or Sept/Oct.) to officially bring the Ark of the Covenant up onto the Temple Mount from the City of David. (See Solomon offer sacrifices there in the City of David in 1 Kings 3:15 after returning from offering sacrifices at the high place of Gibeon, 1 Kings 3:2-5). David had kept the Ark in the tent that he had set up in Jerusalem to house the Ark. The eleven month wait may have been to prepare the organization of the Temple services and the priesthood, but also, it may have been to wait for the Feast of Tabernacles (Feast of Booths or Ingathering) which is observed in the seventh month
(Lev. 23:34; Deut. 16:13-15).

The Ark of the Covenant was the only thing that had not been built or constructed by Solomon’s men. The Ark dated back to the days of Moses, everything else was new. Although, the text does say that when the priests and Levites brought the Ark, they also carried up to the Temple Mount “the tent o meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it.” This must refer to David’s tent since the original Tabernacle had been burned at Shiloh. The furnishings would include the sacred objects used to worship in David’s tent there in the City of David. Of course, it is possible that some of these items could have been salvaged from the Philistine’s destruction of Shiloh.

When the Ark of the Covenant was placed in its location in the Most Holy Place, and after the priests had left the Most Holy Place and the Holy Place, the Lord entered Solomon’s Temple. The Lord has now entered the Temple that Solomon built in Jerusalem just as the Lord had entered the tabernacle (Exodus 40:33-35) in the wilderness after Moses had successfully finished setting up the tabernacle and all the furnishings.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Our reading of the gospel story can be and should
be an act of personal communion with
the living Lord."
- Archbishop William Temple
Something to Ponder??

Adoption – This is the act of God’s grace in which believers become sons of God. The Greek word huiothesia is used in Romans 8:15,23; 9:4; Gal. 4:5; and Eph. 1:5 and indicates a total break with the old family and the establishment of a new family relation that includes all the rights, privileges and responsibilities that come with the family position
(see John 1:12).

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Shamayim (Hb) – Heavens (Eng) – shamayim is the Hebrew word for “heavens,” “the heavenlies,” and “sky.” In Deuteronomy 4:17; 28:12; and 2 Samuel 18:9 shamayim is where birds fly or the atmosphere of earth exists. But, in Genesis 1:14; Psalm 104:2; Isaiaha 34:4 shamayim is where to sun, moon and stars are placed. Shamayim is also used to refer to the abode of God in Psalm 2:4.


Jeremiah was forcibly taken to the city of Tahpanhes in Egypt after the fall of Jerusalem and the assassination of Gedaliah in 586 BC recorded in Jeremiah 40:5; 41:1-3 and 43:5-7. Jeremiah predicted Babylon’s overthrow of Egypt in Jeremiah 43:8-11 (also predicted by Ezekiel 29:19 and 30:10) while residing in Tahpanhes, Egypt. Secular historians ridiculed the scriptures since according to other historical documents never recorded Nebuchadnezer’s invasion of Egypt, let alone his entering Tahpanhes and conquering Egypt. But, a broken cuneiform tablet confirms Nebuchadnezzar’s military campaign in the 37th year of his reign, or 568 BC. Excavations at Tahpanhes revealed 3 cuneiform inscriptions of Nebuchadnezzar’s and a large castle identified as Pharaoh’s House where Jeremiah buried stones under the pavement in the courtyard.
