  3. 3. 3 1 Kings 10 1 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the Name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions. 1200 miles
  4. 4. 4 The Queen of Sheba was a very wealthy monarch, and she had heard of Solomon and of his Mighty God 1200 miles away. She came to test Solomon with questions. 1200 miles was a long journey back then, but she made the trip to get to know him.
  5. 5. 5 2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart. Train = probably a force, whether of men, means or other resources; an army, wealth, virtue, valor, strength Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.
  6. 6. 6 3 And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not anything hid from the king, which he told her not. God gave Solomon the answers to all of her questions. Remember, she had heard of his fame – Concerning the Name of the Lord. That’s what brought her 1200 miles to see Solomon.
  7. 7. 7 4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built, 5 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her. (she was overwhelmed) She was a great monarch, but not compared to what God had made Solomon to be.
  8. 8. 8 6 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. 7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. 8 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom. Usually the buildup of a person or place exceeds the actual experience, but that was not so of what she had heard of Solomon.
  9. 9. 9 9 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel forever, therefore made He thee king, to do judgment and justice. 10 And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon. She came to receive from Solomon, but she didn’t come empty-handed.
  10. 10. 10 Matthew 12 41 (Jesus) The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
  11. 11. 11 Pagans had heard of the things God did and responded more than the people of God were doing. Churches all across the world are coming together to worship God and study His Word together.
  12. 12. 12 But this generation ignores the invitation, just as the generation in Jesus’ day ignored Him. They think they have better things to do.
  13. 13. 13 John 5 23-24 That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent Him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Where better to hear The Word than in church?
  14. 14. 14 Romans 10 13 For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
  15. 15. 15 Hebrews 10 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) Don’t start and stop; be and remain faithful. Keep on keeping on.
  16. 16. 16 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: In today’s culture most people consider only themselves and their own desires. I’ve heard it said, “I don’t go to church because I don’t get nothing out of it.” Not only do they fail to go to church; They fail to speak good grammar too.
  17. 17. 17 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting (to call near; comfort; encourage) one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. The Queen of Sheba didn’t think it too much trouble to travel 1200 miles to hear the Wisdom of God through the mouth of Solomon. Church on every corner
  18. 18. 18 1 Corinthians 14 26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. People receive little or nothing in church, because they give little or nothing. Do you pray when we pray?
  19. 19. 19 Worship is not a spectator sport. Listen attentively Hear intelligently Practice what is preached. Focus and worship with every song, dance, testimony First show up.
  20. 20. 20 Let us be at least as interested as the Queen of Sheba was in Solomon’s day. Let’s open our minds and hearts to the Lord. Worship and Pray. Learn of God with all our minds and hearts. Love God with heart, mind, soul, and strength. Psalm 122 1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
