God made a promise to Solomon and all Israel while he (Solomon) was building the Temple."
Now we have seen all that Solomon and all Israel has done to build the Temple of God. Let’s see what God has to say about it.
2 Chronicles 7:12-16
“And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
V13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among the people;
V14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
V15 now My eyes shall be open, and My ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
V16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.”
Principle to remember:
Once the Temple is built, it is to be a house of submission, prayer, praise and worship."
