20060930 Bible Study for the Day- 1 Kings 8:12-66

Solomon’s dedication of the temple he built to God is the greatest of offerings a man could make, yet such an offering was meaningless without faith in the God to whom the temple was dedicated. Carefully read the words recorded from Solomon’s dedication. Solomon did not exhort the people to sacrifice more, live more piously, or commit some other act, rather he encouraged the people to believe in their God and to trust in Him. That same exhortation applies to us today. There is no work or action that will save us, only faith in the God who has already saved us. It is that faith upon which we should concentrate, for our own benefit and the benefit of the Kingdom. Continue reading

More ironically, these same citizens seem to condone the demise of their own liberty by continuing to elect these liberal governments in election after election. Continue reading

20060928 Bible Study for the Day- 1 Kings 6:1-7:12

The Temple to the Lord that Solomon built in Jerusalem was a sight to behold, a beautiful and awe-inspiring building both outside and inside. That beauty and awe served a purpose beyond getting attention too, because the Temple was intended to remind all who were near it or in it of the God it served. The Temple on earth represented a pale image of the majesty of Heaven and its Creator. Continue reading
