  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 8:1
    Priscilla, God was speaking to King Solomon, appearing to him at night. As you have probably read in that Book, Solomon built a Temple to God & it was a huge affair, not only with the building, but also the celebrations which followed. God accepted this work & their joy in building it, but God also gave this caveat: "when I send Israel drought, locusts or pestilence upon you, remember that it's because your sin has come before Me. But if you should humble yourselves, & pray, & seek My face, and turn from your wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, & will forgive your sin, and will heal your land". However, records show us that Israel very often fell into sin & idolatry & God did have to deal with them harshly.
