Text: 2 Chr 8-9 | Series: 1 & 2 Chronicles

2 Chronicles 6 and 7 tells us we have a God who hears us. In 2 Chronicles 8 and 9, God had set Solomon on his throne. His reign was the “golden age” of Israel.

God gave Solomon great wisdom and vast wealth. He built cities and expanded his kingdom. The people brought offerings to the temple as commanded and were praying and honoring God.

But this “golden age” is only a glimpse and a model of the greatness to come.

“… and behold something greater than Solomon is here.” (Matthew 12:42b) 

We get a glimpse of a greater and better world which awaits us – a perfect righteous Kingdom reigned by a perfect King will be established.
