THE ROYAL WAY

When Heaven Touches Earth

            Is it possible for God’s People to ever get it right on earth? Through two millennia of church history there have been divisions, schisms, splits, crusades, and a thousand different denominations each claiming to be doing it the right way. Is there any hope that God’s people could ever get it right and people could truly witness the kingdom of heaven existing on earth? Interestingly, there was one time in the history of God’s people that it was right. It was under the rule of King Solomon. Kings and Queens came from all over the earth and were “blown away” by the protocol, structure, order, and worship of the people under his reign. More importantly they were introduced and impressed with the God behind His rule.

The life and rule of King Solomon was unlike anything the world has ever seen. He ruled Israel from 970 B.C. to 931 B.C. (almost 3,000 years ago). He was the son of King David and Bathsheba and the third king of a United Israel. The Bible states and history confirms that he was one of the most wealthy and wise rulers to have ever reigned.

1 Kings 3:12-13

Behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.

 

            Solomon constructed the great Temple that in our day would cost several billions of dollars. The queen of Sheba would visit him and famously say that her breath was taken away and “not the half was told” of how great his kingdom (and his God) were.

            Much more important and applicable for our purposes is the truth that we find a pattern in Solomon’s reign of how God uses His kingdom on earth to transform people, cities and even nations. There is divine revelation contained in Solomon’s reign that illustrates how your life can be transformed and how God will bring Heaven to Earth.

Revelation 1:6

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 

God’s New Testament revelation is that His people are to function as kings and priests in the world. Solomon is the prototype of a king in the old Covenant. His life and rule is a pattern for the people of God today.
