142,000 animals slaughtered as sacrifices to God

2 Chronicles 7:1-5 Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. The priests could not enter the temple of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled it. When all the Israelites saw the fire coming down and the glory of the LORD above the temple, they knelt on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD, saying,
“He is good;
his love endures forever.”

Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD. And King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand head of cattle and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep and goats. So the king and all the people dedicated the temple of God.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

Can you imagine the scene here with the killing of 142,000 head of cattle, sheep, and goats? The screams, the pain, and the blood would be overwhelming.

As I said in a previous blog, if I was God and had the ability to make the rules, I would not make a rule that required this much pain and suffering to animals. I would have been happy with Cain’s sacrifice of the fruits of the soil.


What to do if someone is sinning!

1 Timothy 5:20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

If someone is sinning they need be be reprimanded in front of the entire church.

Please don’t let this keep you from church this Sunday. The purpose of this is to help others not sin since they will “fear” the same fate. In essence, you will be helping others.


All Scripture is given by inspiration of God!

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

1. ALL Scripture is given by inspiration of God
2. ALL Scripture is profitable for doctrine, reproof, and correction
3. ALL Scripture is profitable for instruction in righteousness

Please note that according to the scripture, ALL Scripture is inspired of God. How do we know this? Because it is written in the Scriptures – which is inspired of God and accurate. Of course, Scripture is ONLY those books voted to be a part of the canon.
