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,

Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Here we see Gods people coming together Praising the Lord with song, it's a major blessing to be unified in Praise and Thanksgiving. Psalm 133:1-2 How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity! Psalm 95:1 Come let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

Amen Peter. Once again we chose the same verse, and I explain an experience I witnessed regarding the glory of the Lord a few years ago. His presence was so evident, it was impossible to miss it. I only desire to experience more. Be blessed and encouraged brother Peter, as we await what I believe the Lord is about to do. :-)

2 Chronicles 4:7
He made ten gold lampstands according to the specifications for them and placed them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north.

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
The Golden Lampstand are foreshadowing of Jesus Christ the future Messiah. John 8:12 I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of Life.

Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Well expressed and referenced by Scripture Peter. Solomon obviously followed the instructions of the Lord in his work of building the temple. Enjoy a blessed week brother Peter, as we await what our King of kings is going to do next to bring revival to the world, which surely needs it. :-)

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

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
The curtain /veil if i remember correctly was Hanging in the most Holy Place which was a barrier between man and God.(a barrier in which the High Priest can enter) The tearing of the veil at the moment of Christs death on the cross for our sins, made Christ Our High Priest and as believers in Jesus Christ, we can now enter The Holy of Holies through Him, opened for us through the curtain,that is His body. Hebrews 10:19-20 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, His body.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen Peter, and the tearing of the veil we know was done by God since it was torn from top to bottom, illustrating that it could not have been done by man. Mat_27:51  And, behold! The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And the earth quaked, and the rocks were sheared, And yes on the fall type weather today. I had to turn the furnace back on after having temps near 90 a couple of days ago. Blessings always upon you brother. :-)

2 Chronicles 2:18
He assigned 70,000 of them to be carriers and 80,000 to be stonecutters in the hills, with 3,600 foremen over them to keep the people working.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
I'm looking at this verse from a Christian stand point. It took many men with their time and their talents to build this Temple which consisted in a lot of materials. The Christian Temple is a dwelling not made with hands, the real presence of God is His Church. The materials today is the cornerstone Christ crucified the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, the stones the men and women who are the church. Christ, the Head of the body and the chief cornerstone of the church. The spiritual Temple is a habitation of God.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen to that Peter. Christ as you have said, is head of the church, and the church is not a building (temple) as it was then, but is those who are committed to Christ as Lord and Savior. Blessings brother Peter, as we enter the Lord's day and be His lights to the world. :-)

2 Chronicles 1:10
Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Solomon could have anything he wanted, but he chose wisdom and knowledge, a request that pleased God. And God knew from this, that Solomon had a pure heart, and that he loved God and his people then himself.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen and amen, Peter. Different verses we chose but our comments very similar, showing that Solomon wanted to be a righteous leader, and not just a demanding wealthy one. Blessings Peter, as we end another week in the low 70 today. Enjoy a terrific weekend as we see what the Lord will do on Sunday, being Pentecost. :-)

1 Chronicles 29:10
David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,

"Praise be to you, Lord,
the God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Key words David praising the Lord: "Praise be to you, Lord, the God of our father Israel." This is the first time that God was addressed directly as Father over His people. Reminds me of Jesus teaching His disciples to pray, with the beginning phrase Our Father (Matthew 6: 9)
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen Peter. David was a great king and he obviously, as we see in this chapter, had great influence upon his people. He was not a "watch me" sort of king but humbled himself before the Lord and set a great example for his people. Too bad we don't have more national leaders around the world like king David. I know we could use one here at this point. Blessings Peter, as we watch another week disappear. :-)

1 Chronicles 28:3
But God said to me, 'You are not to build a house for my Name, because you are a warrior and have shed blood.'

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Key Phrase: "You are not to build a house for My name." Here we see in this verse God, gave a reason for not letting David build the Temple. David was a warrior king, a courageous king, but he shed blood. The Temple was to be built in peace time, and the the Temple would require the mind of the wisest man who would ever live. Davids son, Solomon, who would out rank him with brain power.

Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Can't ad much to that Peter. Of course, Israel is in the planning stages of another temple. I actually hope it doesn't happen in my life time, since it will bring in the son of perdition (antichrist) who will sit in the temple and claim he is God. 2Thess. 2:3-4  Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, (4)  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself forth, that he is God. Blessings Peter. Cloudy and calling for rain here today, though a bit cooler. Currently 72. :-)

1 Chronicles 27:34
Ahithophel was succeeded by Jehoiada son of Benaiah and by Abiathar.

Joab was the commander of the royal army.

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Not much you can say about this chapter, but I do recall Joab was responsible for crushing the son of David, Absalom for his rebellion. Even though he was commander of Davids royal army, we know what happens to Johab in the end. This was an interesting chapter.:)
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen Peter. It shows the importance of the direction of the Lord. I look at it from another perspective too, that we are so blessed today to have the full written word of the Lord to guide us but at that time it was not available so readily to all. Time sure does fly by Peter, as you said, it's mid week already. God bless and protect you and yours. :-)

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.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Capable men picked by David to serve the Kingdom of Israel, and to be faithful servants of the king and their duty to serve God. This chapter was difficult, but I believe it all points to serving and worshiping God. The Division of the Gate Keepers Established.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Amen Peter. And yes, another difficult chapter to really get much out of but It's all about the protection and management of God's treasures. Think we went from Winter to Summer in a hurry, Peter. Not sure where Spring went but had to turn the air on today and they're predicting 90 degrees for tomorrow. :-)

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

Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
The teacher and the scholar, young or old there wasn't any difference in age or abilities, the lots were cast to see who would serve first. This was a difficult chapter, what it boils down to there was No Favoritism.
