  1. I don’t believe he was supposed to build the temple. There are no clear guidelines in scripture that appear to be direct ditication as how to build the Temple, unlike the clear institutions for the Tabernacle.

    The Tabernacle is a more biblical model of what it should have been. It’s also a direct reflection of us being the Tabernacle.

    1. Hello itsyahushua, thanks for the comment.

      The Bible disagrees with your “I don’t believe he was supposed to build the temple.” See the verses below

      2 Samuel 7:12-13
      12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.

      1 Kings 5:2-5
      2 Solomon sent this message to Hiram: 3 “You know my father David was not able to build a temple for the name of Yahweh his God. This was because of the warfare all around him until the Lord put his enemies under his feet. 4 The Lord my God has now given me rest all around; there is no enemy or crisis. 5 So I plan to build a temple for the name of Yahweh my God, according to what the Lord promised my father David: ‘I will put your son on your throne in your place, and he will build the temple for My name.’

      1. I don’t see it. Theses scriptures clearly do not indicate direct revelation and a step by step plan. Notice his use of “I plan to build the temple”. Pretty clear to me.

        God allowed him to build it just like He allowed them to have a king.
        In Exodus God spells out every detail of the Tabernacle, showed Moses what it looked like and was very detailed. It even says He filled them with the spirit to build it correctly. The scripture does not clearly say that about the Temple.

        Also, what does the scripture say about building with “hewn” stone? He said Don’t built with it. They got “Around” it by cutting the stone off site.

        Exodus
        “If you make an altar of stones for me, do not build it with dressed stones, for you will defile it if you use a tool on it.”

        Kings
        New International Version
        “In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built.”

        The topic is interesting and not a salvation issue for sure.

        I hope I gave you something to think about

      2. I’m sorry but according to Scripture you are way off base on the issue of the Temple. It seems as you are rejecting what the Bible clearly says,

        2 Samuel 7: 11-13
        “‘The Lord declares to you: The Lord Himself will make a house for you. 12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.

        If this Scripture does not convince you that God wanted His temple built by Solomon than you have rejected plainly what the Bible declares. If you can easily reject this part of Scripture than you are capable to reject even salvific one’s. You are playing a dangerous game.

        I really don’t know what to think, you are the very first so-called believer in Jesus who rejects things in the Bible that Muslims actually reject as well. No Spirit filled believer would take your point of view or even entertain it. It is unscriptural and in deep error to believe what you are suggesting.

      3. I don’t have any ill feelings towards you but you are trying to make me accept and who knows who else unBiblical teachings. You seem to have rejected sound doctrine and are moving back to that which Christ has set as free, the Law. I have read your site and I pray that you are not trying to pull believers back to it. I’m saddened from your departure of the teachings of Jesus and His Apostles.
