1Kings 8: 54-61

And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,

Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

Y sucedió que cuando Salomón terminó de decir toda esta oración y súplica al SEÑOR, se levantó de delante del altar del SEÑOR, de estar de rodillas con sus manos extendidas hacia el cielo.  Y se puso de pie y bendijo a toda la asamblea de Israel en alta voz, diciendo:  Bendito sea el SEÑOR, que ha dado reposo a su pueblo Israel, conforme a todo lo que prometió; ninguna palabra ha fallado de toda su buena promesa que hizo por medio de su siervo Moisés.  Que el SEÑOR nuestro Dios esté con nosotros, como estuvo con nuestros padres; que no nos deje ni nos abandone,  para que incline nuestro corazón hacia El, para que andemos en todos sus caminos y para que guardemos sus mandamientos, sus estatutos y sus preceptos que ordenó a nuestros padres.  Y que estas palabras mías, con las que he suplicado delante del SEÑOR, estén cerca del SEÑOR nuestro Dios día y noche, para que El haga justicia a su siervo y justicia a su pueblo Israel, según las necesidades de cada día,  a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que el SEÑOR es Dios; no hay otro.  Estén, pues, vuestros corazones enteramente dedicados al SEÑOR nuestro Dios, para que andemos en sus estatutos y guardemos sus mandamientos, como en este día.

Solomon showed us here how we can come to God in a way that is pleasing to our Maker. He does hear us as long as we walk as sons and daughters of Him. We must always support God’s people Israel no matter what the world tells us. We also must always be willing to claim Him in everything. As the last 2 verses say…there is no other God, and our hearts must be right and perfect before Him. How is your heart with God?

Ezekiel 18:20-23

20The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

21But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 22All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. 23Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

20 El alma que peque, ésa morirá. El hijo no cargará con la iniquidad del padre, ni el padre cargará con la iniquidad del hijo; la justicia del justo será sobre él y la maldad del impío será sobre él.
21 Pero si el impío se aparta de todos los pecados que ha cometido, guarda todos mis estatutos y practica el derecho y la justicia, ciertamente vivirá, no morirá. 22 Ninguna de las transgresiones que ha cometido le serán recordadas; por la justicia que ha practicado, vivirá. 23 ¿Acaso me complazco yo en la muerte del impío–declara el Señor DIOS— y no en que se aparte de sus caminos y viva?

We can turn from sin and be righteous. God declared it even before Jesus came to the Earth to be our sacrifice. If we turn away from sin and live in a righteous path, always in prayer and listening to God, He will bless us with His best blessings and best of all…Eternal Life with Him!

2 Kings 23:3

And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people joined in to the covenant.

Después el rey se puso en pie junto a la columna e hizo pacto delante del SEÑOR de andar en pos del SEÑOR y de guardar sus mandamientos, sus testimonios y sus estatutos con todo su corazón y con toda su alma, para cumplir las palabras de este pacto escritas en este libro. Y todo el pueblo confirmó el pacto.

If the leaders and kings of the Earth did this now, they would bless their country and people. I have a dream of all leaders bowing before God soon. It will be an amazing sight. May Jesus reign!

1 Kings 11:38

And it shall be, if you will hearken unto all that I command you, and will walk in my ways, and do what is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with you, and build you a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto you.

“Y sucederá que si escuchas todo lo que te ordeno y andas en mis caminos, y haces lo recto delante de mis ojos, guardando mis estatutos y mis mandamientos, como hizo David mi siervo, entonces estaré contigo y te edificaré una casa perdurable como la que edifiqué a David, y yo te entregaré Israel

This promise made to Solomon by God can also be true for us. If we will listen and heed our heavenly Father, He will bless us in all of our ways and lead us down a path of glory. He will build us a sure house; we must listen and do as He tells us. How do we do this? We read the scripture, we pray and we listen to that “still small voice” which is the Holy Spirit. He will not ask us to do anything contrary to His Word, but He may ask us to do things that are against man’s principals. Oh, Father God, may we always heed You in all ways; please help us to see the correct path. Praise You God; Praise You!
