As we read last week, David was the second king of Israel.

The third king of Israel was David’s son, Solomon.  He built the first Temple of God in 957 bc (before Christ).

The Temple of God was similar to the Tent of Meetings (see Salvation 7-10 in the category column to the left).
The difference is that the Temple of God was a permanent structure.  It was built in Jerusalem, the capital city of
Israel.

2 Chronicles 3:1  Then Solomon began to build the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the
Lord had appeared to his father David.

The Ark of the Covenant was placed in the back room of the inner sanctuary, the Most Holy Place.  Inside the Ark
was the two tablets of the 10 Commandments, Aaron’s rod and a pot of Mana.  If you remember, Mana was a bread
like substance that tasted like a wafer with honey.  It fell from heaven and fed the Israelites in the second month of
their escape from Egypt.

On top of the Ark of the Covenant were two Cherubim (Angel) statues.  The Holy Spirit appeared between these
statues and would speak to the High Priests.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
