Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:19


6:19 Prepared - That is, adorned and fitted it for the receipt of theark. Solomon made every thing new, but the ark. That with its mercyseat was still the same that Moses made. This was the token of God'spresence, which is with his people, whether they meet in tent or temple,and changes not with their condition.

    This is the only Bible chapter that has the word "inside" in it. I just thought that was very interesting.

    I have been thinking that the New Temple #3 well be a TENT as it where in Moses time. But then I maybe wrong.

    Verses 12,13~Jehovah God promised to be with his people if they kept his laws and obeyed his commandments.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    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.
