2 Chronicles 5:13
The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:

"He is good;
his love endures forever."

Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud,

Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
The magnitude of this time must have been amazing, especially when the temple was filled with the cloud of the Lord's glory, and the priests could not even perform their service, due to the presence of the Lord. I pray we will all have the experience of the glory of the Lord via His glory cloud soon. I have never seen the glory cloud but a few years ago, I saw a person picked up and thrown, by the Lord, onto their back about 15 feet from where they were standing, land on their back and have zero injury and end up laughing with the joy of the Lord as they lay on the floor. The Lord's presence was so evident at that experience it could not be missed and there were at least a couple of thousand people present at that meeting. Hallelujah. More Lord.

2 Chronicles 4:22
the pure gold wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers; and the gold doors of the temple: the inner doors to the Most Holy Place and the doors of the main hall.

Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
A difficult chapter to pick a verse from but it did show that Solomon made everything as the Lord had commanded him to do. Everything was done to honor the Lord God Almighty. Oh that the leaders of the world today would honor the Lord as king Solomon did.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
It was a difficult chapter Lloyd, it was a magnificent Temple at that period in time. I can't imagine what the third Temple will look like, won't be around to find out :) Continue to be Blest, and be prepared for we know not the hour. Michigan is starting to open up.

2 Chronicles 3:14
He made the curtain of blue, purple and crimson yarn and fine linen, with cherubim worked into it.

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
It is obvious that Solomon spared nothing to see that the house of the Lord was a magnificent structure, beyond anything known to man. With the amount of gold and special woods used for its construction, I cannot imagine the cost in today's dollars but there was obviously no cost even considered by Solomon, in honoring the Lord.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Same verse Lloyd(I took a different approach we had a Lords day message on the veil and what it ment when it was torn) it was the most expensive to build the temple back then, and took Solomon a few years to build it.Today it would cost more but wouldn't take that many years to build. Well we had a little bit of fall weather today. Keep us in your Prayers brother. Blessings

2 Chronicles 2:5
"The temple I am going to build will be great, because our God is greater than all other gods.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Solomon surely knew that the God of Israel was the only true God, and he was in the process of building a magnificent temple in honor of the Lord, God of Israel. Oh that there would be more leaders today who realize who our God is, the same God Who was the God of Israel. Lev_19:4  Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I AM Jehovah your God. Joh_7:29  I know Him; because I AM from him, and He sent me.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Lloyd for great is Our Lord most worthy of Praise, He is to be feared above all Gods.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Psalm 135:5 I know that the Lord is great, that our Lord is greater then all gods.

2 Chronicles 1:12
therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Since Solomon did not ask for personal wealth and favor, the Lord granted him not only the wisdom he asked for, but also mega wealth, possessions and honor as well. He was obviously not greedy, as so many are, even today. He only asked for wisdom to lead his people, and the Lord gave him all the rest. Should be a great lesson for leaders today. It shows that the Lord blesses those who bless His people. Gen 12:3  And I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed. 
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
I think you nailed it Lloyd, Solomon chose to serve the people of Israel. And the Lord was very pleased in the choice that Solomon made. And that the Lord indeed kept His promise and gave Solomon, riches, honor and fame. Be Blest on this Lords Day. Any information on when Canada will lift the ban on gathering for worship?
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
No change at the moment regarding gathering for fellowship. Our church services are still over Zoom as well as our Wed evening Bible studies. We also have a Zoom prayer meeting on Tues evening. My prayer is that more, and even younger people would join us for the studies and prayer meetings. Blessings Peter. :-)

1 Chronicles 29:16
Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Both David and all the Israeli people gave, so that the temple of the Lord could be built, but David proclaimed that what they had given all belonged to the Lord anyhow, for without the Lord, there would be nothing to give anyhow. The Israeli people were a giving people then and that has never left them to this day. They are always the first to give, whether it be assistance to other nations, or to support each other in time of need. When there is a tragedy anywhere in the world, Israel are usually the first on the seen to give assistance. The Lord sets an example, through His people, for us to live by.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Loyd Amen, David gave all his resources/ personal treasure to further the building of the Temple, as well as the people gave their time and their talents to further the building of the Temple. And as you stated, as we see in the news today Israel always steps out to offer support where it is need. All Praise, Honor and Glory to God who provides.

1 Chronicles 28:19
"All this," David said, "I have in writing as a result of the Lord 's hand on me, and he enabled me to understand all the details of the plan."

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
David had always planned on building the temple to house the ark of God, but God had a different person in mind to do that, since David had blood on his hands from being a warrior, who had secured the land of Israel for his people. Now, God had instructed David as to whom, being his son Solomon, would build the temple and how it would be built. David humbly turned the construction of the temple over to his son. It is so encouraging that David, in humility, obeyed the Lord's commands, as he gave Solomon all the instructions. In my mind, David was an example of Christ, a humble servant to the will of His Father, God.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Lloyd Amen, two different verses but came down to the same conclusion, Solomon the son of David was chosen by God to build the Temple. As brothers and sisters in Christ we are The New Temple of God, all the people of God are in the Most Holy Place. We are in the Temple, in the presence of The Living God. Continued to be Blest and encouraged in the word of God.

1 Chronicles 27:24
Joab son of Zeruiah began to count the men but did not finish. God's wrath came on Israel on account of this numbering, and the number was not entered in the book of the annals of King David.

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Another difficult chapter to gain much from but it shows another time that Israel obviously went against the will of the Lord, and He loosed His wrath upon them. A great warning for the leaders of different nations today, to pay attention to the will of God, lest they ignite His judgment.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
You did well on this verse Lloyd, it was difficult. Man should always listen to the commands of the Lord to avoid His judgement. And as we know from scripture man is so rebellious, one day He will unleash His judgement because of sin and disobedience. Blessings brother, as another week is going by.

1 Chronicles 26:32
Jeriah had twenty-seven hundred relatives, who were able men and heads of families, and King David put them in charge of the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh for every matter pertaining to God and for the affairs of the king.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
This whole chapter shows the assignment of all the men in charge of the temple and all of its divisions, from it's treasures to its gate keepers and all things related to the things of God. Yes, these men were the keepers but we need to remember, God is the owner of it all and He had arranged for its protection and management. Hallelujah.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Lloyd we chose same verse, and that God chose reliable men as gatekeepers to guard all things related to God. It must have been a great privilege to be called to serve the Lord as a gatekeeper. And as gatekeepers today we must be like a watchman and pray for revival and eagerly wait for the Lords return. Be continually Blest by Gods word Lloyd. 88 degrees today with more rain :)

1 Chronicles 25:8
Young and old alike, teacher as well as student, cast lots for their duties.

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
As David was still alive, and still king, it appears that once again he did not show favoritism but all were assigned their duties by the casting of lots. They were not appointed through favoritism, so no one could have said, oh, this one or that one was David's favorite. I believe this shows the righteous leadership of king David. As I understand this chapter, all were equally talented, so it was a honorable way to position them. In the remainder of this chapter it is difficult to understand how each of those who won the draw, had 12 sons and relatives. It had to be a God plan in my mind.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Same Verse Lloyd with same train of thought, but again Gods plan was at work everyone is equal.
