Whatever You Need From Him as His “Friend”, Will Come Because of Great Sacrifice!!
And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD, and the king’s house, and all Solomon’s desire which he was pleased to do, that the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer (mind you it was Solomon’s obedience that caught the eyes of God) and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me.
(Notice Solomon stayed on his face in a relationship with Abba Father getting instructions from the heart of the Father and because he did?)
I have hallowed (sacred) this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
Why do you think God did this? It was because of the Favor on Solomon’s life (David his father) and because he was dedicated and committed to serving Abba Father!
1 Kings 9:1-9 KJV reveals to us how God said to Solomon, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.
Some of us God has called you to not build on your own, but what He will have is for you to follow a pattern that has already been established as He did with Moses and Joshua. Moses left off the scene and than Joshua took over from there!
Hear we see David getting the Apostolic blue print to build, but instead of him building, God allowed his son to do the honors!
I believe that a changing of the guards is coming for many in this season and because of the blood that has been shed, like King David, God is going to allow someone else to do the building in the Kingdom of God.
And, it’s not that He loves the ones building more than He does the ones who get the blueprint, but it is just that they are the ones God has chosen for such a time as this.
The LORD said to Solomon if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: and at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?
And they shall answer, ‘Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil’. (1 Kings 9:1-9 KJV)
Just because God is raising up those who are Apostles, it doesn’t mean you are special or exempt from obeying and following God’s statues!
In fact, you will be held more accountable than those who know less, because you are a representative of God in His Kingdom!
And, even expected more of you, although you are considered as the scum of the earth!
For, he that knew not and committed things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes.
For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required; and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more, (Luke 12:48).
