  3. 3. 3 1 Kings 7 1 But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house. He finished the temple in seven years and six months. It was only 2700 square feet in the main building. Solomon’s palace was much larger: 11,250 square feet in the main building; Plus he had multiple buildings in a complex.
  4. 4. 4 He had, not only his living quarters, But also government offices, the hall of judgment, the armory, a huge courtyard, and more.
  5. 5. 5 8 …. Solomon made also an house for Pharaoh's daughter, whom he had taken to wife, like unto this porch. First wife status
  6. 6. 6 10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits. 11 And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars. He built a solid foundation before he added the more beautiful stones and timber. 10 cubits = 180 inches = 15 feet cubed. 8 cubits = 144 inches = 12 feet cubed Palestinian limestone can be cut with a saw when freshly quarried, but hardens when exposed to the elements.

  7. 7. 7 13 And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre. 14 He was a widow's son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to King Solomon, and wrought all his work. Now he begins to make it look good.
  8. 8. 8 21 And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz. 22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished. Jakin means “He [Yahweh] establishes,” and Boaz means “In Him [Yahweh] is strength.” The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty. A church can’t be built upon personalities, but upon God.
  9. 9. 9 23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about. (it held 11,500 gallons) This basin served as a reservoir for the temple courtyard. The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty. It set upon the backs of 12 oxen made for the purpose.
  10. 10. 10 51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the LORD. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the LORD. The temple and his palace with all they contained was an immense treasure. He built it all on a strong foundation.
  11. 11. 11 We are building a life in Jesus Christ. If you are born again – born of the Spirit of God into the family of God – Saved from sin and from hell through the Blood of Jesus Christ – You have a great start for a wonderful life.
  12. 12. 12 Luke 6 47 Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My Sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. The only solid foundation for your life is truly living The Word of God.
  13. 13. 13 Proverbs 10 24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. 25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. Whether speaking of your personal life, a family, a culture, or a church The righteous is an everlasting foundation. Without righteous people, no culture, no church, no nation, no family will long survive.
  14. 14. 14 Luke 6 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. James 1 22 But be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
  15. 15. 15 1 Corinthians 3 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Solomon laid a strong foundation of massive stones.
  16. 16. 16 Solomon was building earthly buildings. We are building lives that will live forever. Build on the strong foundation, which is Jesus Christ, the Word of God.
  17. 17. 17 Finish Well. Hebrews 10 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, My Soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. Plow out the row, straight and true. Don’t even look back.
