Having Solomon’s wisdom!

We are all familiar with the bible story of Solomon, God visited him in a dream and asked him what he wanted and Solomon said he wanted wisdom!

This was an eye opener to me!

1 Kings 3:15 Then Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and made peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

The first sign that someone has received wisdom from God as we can see here, the very first thing he did was to go and stand before the ark! As we know the Ark of covenant represents our Lord Jesus Christ.

What is the point of going to church, if Jesus is not there? What is the point of praying, if Jesus is not there?

How can you tell is someone received wisdom from the Lord? The first thing that he/she will do is to value the presents of Jesus. In the same way, if you receive wisdom from God it will not draw you away from Him it will draw you near to Him.

The first thing you will do if you receive wisdom from God is to come closer to Jesus. It is all about Jesus! The Ark of covenant is a picture of Jesus, let me explain myself.

The Ark of the Covenant for those who is not familiar with it! The Ark of the Covenant is made of:

37 Next Bezalel made the Ark of acacia wood (this is a picture of Jesus humanity) He overlaid it inside and outside with pure gold (Jesus deity, Jesus person 100% God) Wood is 100% man and the gold is 100%God, and he ran a molding of gold all around it. He cast four gold rings and attached them to its four feet, two rings on each side. Then he made poles from acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. He inserted the poles into the rings at the sides of the Ark to carry it.

Then he made the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—from pure gold.(This is the work of Jesus, blood is put on the mercy seat) b] He made two cherubim from hammered gold and placed them on the two ends of the atonement cover.(This represent God’s righteousness) He molded the cherubim on each end of the atonement cover, making it all of one piece of gold. The cherubim faced each other and looked down on the atonement cover.(They look at the blood that is spread on the mercy seat) With their wings spread above it, they protected it

These are the 3 items that is in the inside of the ark

  • Golden pot of manna
  • Aaron’s rod
  • The two stone (10 Commandment

These items were tokens of man’s rebellion. The two tablets of the Ten Commandments represented man’s rejection of God’s standards. The manna represented man’s rejection of God’s provision, and Aaron’s rod, man’s rejection of God’s appointed priesthood.

    The tablets were of stone because the Lord constantly accused His people that they had stone hearts. The same goes for the temple as it was made of stone. In the new testament both the hearts of believers and the temple are made of flesh and not by human hands.

        The spirit of rejection is a spirit that keeps those bound by it lonely. It attaches to an individual after a wounding and makes them fearful of trusting again. An wound not a healed is a two edged sword when people try to get close the one edge of the sword stabs at the wounded individual while the other end stabs at the individual trying to get close.

        The most important thing is forgiving those who have offended us. Holding onto unforgiveness is deadly.
