    Verse 13-Jehovah God promised to be with his people as long as they obeyed him and applied what they learned in his Word. We can have the same opportunity today if we are obedient.
  • Danette on 1 Kings 6:38
    Is the story of Job acceptable today?
  • Mishael on Book of Job 38 - in Reply on 1 Kings 6:38
    Absolutely! Some of us are living Jobs life.

    He was a righteous man. Yet he learned some things about abiding love; the magnificent power of God.

    We should all read the part about God's storehouses of rain, hail, snow; it's relevant now.

    JOB 38. (Read all of it)

    22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

    23. Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

    Little prairie chickens hide in the bushes; always eyes downward looking for their food. Never looking UP at what is above their heads.

    The eagle flys far above the ground, miles above. His vision is so acute and great, he can spot his food at a very great distance. His prey never sees what hit them.

    We feed on Gods Word to gain wisdom, spiritual discernment: knowledge of the Holy. We will NEVER see the enemy if we don't consume Gods Word like it was a buffet of our most favorite foods. If you want 2nds and 3rds, God will provide to satisfy. HUNGER after righteousness, and it will be given.

    Hi Mishael, your right, we all should read Job 38. It is amazing and unimaginable we are as a speck compared to the glorious power of God and to know, He loves us and gave His only begotten Son for us to live through Him.

    Thanks, Ron

    Danette, The book of Job brings up hard questions that are difficult to answer. Why did God allow Satan to take and destroy all he had, his wealth all the cattle and animals, and his family, and for God to allow this on a righteous man like Job? Job had the patience to trust God even while going through the suffering he was enduring. We need that kind of faith. Everyone around Job was convinced he had done a great sin even his wife told him, Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    God may allow trouble and tribulations to come into our lives, but as hard as they may be, we must trust God and remember what our promise is. Our promise is not wealth and prosperity that some cling to, leading many in the way of this world and away from God. Our promise is eternal life by the faith given by the death burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, regardless of what we face in the corrupt world. The story of Job is needed in these times more than when it was written.

    We have been told we will have tribulations in this world. It's hard for us humans to accept that God will allow bad things to happen to us for his will. But this message needs to be told especially in the days we are living. We must have faith that it is God's will for his purpose. But if we are used for God's purpose we should rejoice.

    James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

    God bless us, Ron

    Hi ron ,i belive that suffering is neccessary for us to grow as compassionate human beings ,when i say neccesary i really mean it ,how can i possibly empathise or sympathise with any one elses suffering if i havent also suffered ? Hebrews ch 5 in particular v 7 & 8 .
  • Ron - in Reply on 1 Kings 6:38
    Hi Sacha, you can feel the sincerity in the words of your posts they shine, and I agree, may the ones we help and show compassion to, will see who has given us the strength to come through our trials.

    2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

    God bless you and your family, Ron

    Hi Danette ,im not sure what you mean by acceptable ? Maybe you mean applicable ? Any way yes ,ultimately all Christians are Job in my opinion ,we all suffer tragidies and heartbreak but hopefully our trials and tribulations will make us cling even harder to the Rock of our Salvation .

    Verses 12,13~Jehovah God promised to be with his people if they kept his laws and obeyed his commandments.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus on 1 Kings 6
    I have heard that presently and somewhere are all the finished, prefabricated materials and ornaments necessary to build a new temple in Jerusalem. Those behind this task are waiting for a relevant time to set it all in motion. If this is true, than it adheres to this particular chapter concerning the construction of the original temple, but the new one will be built very very quickly.

    God want you to do his will according to what he told you not what people said to you, you must listen God's voice clear and understand it.
  • Timothy Wayne George on 1 Kings 6
    God has given the command to Solomon how he is to build his house, and the exact requirement. It took seven years to complete the task, and this represents perfection. Now the only thing that is left is to keep all of the statutes, and the commandments of the law, and all of the promises to that God made to David will be fulfilled.
    The Lord Jesus will is the completion of the promise, and he is of the lion of the tribe of Judah. He will take the title deed of this world, and rule on the throne of his father David as the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords in his everlasting Kingdom. Even so come quickly Lord Jesus.

    What does I Kings Chapter 6 means or its summary??
  • Bane on 1 Kings 6
    About months ZIF and BUL.
    I intended to send a link but it is not allowed in this comments. So i will say what I discovered
    (I am a bit confused too):
    These months are from some "sacred calendar" which is parallel in total to Jew calendar, so ZIF is a second month and it is parallel to ijjar and BUL is 8. month and is parallel to marhesvan.
    It is a great pleasure to me if I was of any help.

  • Matthew on 1 Kings 6
    Whatever the mouth of the LORD speaketh will surely come to pass.He told David that his son will build the Temple and now God has given Solomon even more wisdom than David himself wouldnt have thought of.
  • Precious on 1 Kings 6
    God is more interested in our obeying his commands more than any type of service we can render to Him, while solomon was building the great house, He still spoke to him asking that he walk in His commandment. LET'S BE CAREFUL OF
  • Kamran Fazal on 1 Kings 6
    God wants us to listen His words in our daily life. He wants us to obey according to His word. As Solomon did each and every job in building the Lord's Temple.Then He will bless us as He blessed Solomon in life.
    Because He loves us.
  • Muyiwa on 1 Kings 6
    God spoke to Solomon while he built the temple. From time to time, God speaks to us giving instructions and this keeps us in focus. He always wants to bless us and keep us in view of what He wants to or about to do. He sees us as children and keeps in the knowing of His moves.
