Solomons Temple
#1

The crowning achievement of King Solomon's reign was the erection of the magnificent Temple (Hebrew- Beit haMikdash) in the capital city of ancient Israel - Jerusalem. His father, King David, had wanted to build the great Temple a generation earlier, as a permanent resting place for the Ark of the Covenant which contained the Ten Commandments. A divine edict, however, had forbidden him from doing so: "You will not build a house for My name," God said to David, "for you are a man of battles and have shed blood" (I Chronicles 28:3).

The Bible's description of Solomon's Temple (also called The First Temple) suggests that the inside ceiling was was 180 feet long, 90 feet wide, and 50 feet high. The highest point on the Temple that King Solomon built was actually 120 cubits tall (about 20 stories or about 207 feet).
According to the Tanach (II Chronicles):
3:3- "The length by cubits after the ancient measure was threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits".
3:4- "And the porch that was before the house, the length of it, according to the breadth of the house, was twenty cubits, and the height a hundred and twenty; and he overlaid it within with pure gold."
Solomon spared no expense for the building's creation. He ordered vast quantities of cedar wood from King Hiram of Tyre (I Kings 5:20­25), had huge blocks of the choicest stone quarried, and commanded that the building's foundation be laid with hewn stone. To complete the massive project, he imposed forced labor on all his subjects, drafting people for work shifts that sometimes lasted a month at a time. Some 3,300 officials were appointed to oversee the Temple's erection (5:27­30). Solomon assumed such heavy debts in building the Temple that he is forced to pay off King Hiram by handing over twenty towns in the Galilee (I Kings 9:11).
When the Temple was completed, Solomon inaugurated it with prayer and sacrifice, and even invited non­Jews to come and pray there. He urged God to pay particular heed to their prayers: "Thus all the peoples of the earth will know Your name and revere You, as does Your people Israel; and they will recognize that Your name is attached to this House that I have built" (I Kings 8:43).

Sacrifice was the predominant mode of divine service in the Temple until it was destroyed by the Babylonians some four hundred years later, in 586 BCE. Seventy years later, after the story of Purim, a number of Jews returned to Israel - led by the prophets Ezra and Nehemiah - and the Second Temple was built on the same site. Sacrifices to God were once again resumed. During the first century B.C.E., Herod, the Roman appointed head of Judea, made substantial modifications to the Temple and the surrounding mountain, enlargening and expanding the Temple. The Second Temple, however, met the same fate as the first and was destroyed by the Romans in 70 C.E., following the failure of the Great Revolt.

1 Kings 7:15-16 tells us of the building of two great bronze pillars which would stand at the entrance of Gods temple. The shaft of the columns measured 18 cubits in height, with a capital (top adorning piece) measuring 5 cubits in height; this gives us a total height of 23 cubits. Both of these pillars were incredibly important to Solomon and as such he went so far as to name them both. The left one which faced north was named “Jachin”, the second one which faced south was named “Boaz”.

Now the human body is made up of chromosomes that are literally the building blocks of the human body. They contain all of the DNA information that makes you into who you are. Your parents give you 23 chromosomes each, which gives you a total of 46 chromosomes. The pillars of Solomons temple measure 23 cubits high which can be seen to represent the two parents chromosomes that go into making each one of us, add these two pillars together and you’ve got a human body, the future Temple of God! Even more special are the names that Solomon gave to these pillars.

I mentioned that the left one was named “Jachin“, this literally translates as “GOD shall establish“; and the name of the second pillar “Boaz” translates as “Strength” or “In Strength“. If you string these two pillars together, Jachin Boaz, you get “GOD shall establish in strength“. What can we take from this? We can take this as a prophecy. God shall establish, in strength, his new Kingdom in which WE are the new Temple of God.

So another question to ask is if we can find this same kind of use of chromosomes in The Bible elsewhere? The answer is yes. It can be found in John 2.
In John 2 we learn that all of the people had turned the temple (Solomons rebuilt temple) into a marketplace which greatly angered Jesus. He then drove everybody out including all of the animals, with a whip made from cords.
Now the Jewish people exclaimed “What gives you the authority to do such things?” and Jesus responded “Destroy this temple and i will rebuild it again in three days” to which the Jews replied “It has taken 46 years to build this temple!“.
What does all of this mean? Once again we see those numbers, 46, but this time in years.

Now Herod the Great had begun to restore the Temple of Solomon, as it had since been destroyed. He began his work in 19 BC and it had taken 46 years to restore it up until the point of this conflict at the temple. The 46 years of building is also how many chromosomes it takes to build the human body! Incredible.

CONCLUSION
Solomon built the Temple of Yahveh and it stood for about 500 years before the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, came in search of the most treasured item on earth. Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple but never did find the treasured Ark of the Covenant because of the built in sand hydraulic lever system set in place when the Temple was being constructed. Jeremiah, one of the great prophets, had received a vision in regards to the operation of this lever system so that he, along with some Levite Priests, could operate the system to preserve the Ark for all time. This whole endeavor was part one of a two part typology that Yahveh established so that the sins of the world could be forgiven by His Son Yeshua when He was sacrificed as the “Lamb of Yah”, at Calvary. Many years later, when Yeshua was crucified in 4029 on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yeshua’s blood drained down through the rocks on “skull face hill” to land on the west side (the right hand side) of the Mercy Seat. This completed the baptism of suffering that Yeshua had to endure so that all of mankind’s sins, curses, and demons could be removed and dealt with once and for all. This is what Yeshua meant when he said: “it is finished” (John 19:30). The High Priests had been for all those years sprinkling the blood of the sacrificed lamb on the east side of the Ark
