Wisdom From the Torah Book 2:
With Portions From the Prophets and New Testament
This Bible study guide is presented as an extension to our Virtual House Church. It is designed to show you how the themes, stories, and words of the Torah (the five books of Moses) are woven throughout the writings of the prophets and New Testament. There is much wisdom to be gained from the Torah. The word is often translated as “law” but really, it represents the instructions of our loving Father to His children. We pray this study draws you into a closer, more intimate relationship with Him.

This calendar is still very much a work in progress. It represents our current understanding of the Scriptures and the way the calendar is to be followed. Therefore, we recommend that you use it only in prayer and search all things out for yourself, asking the Holy Spirit to confirm or deny these things. Like the calendar, we are also a work in progress and make no claims that we have it all figured out.

322, Tetrads and the Time of Jacob's Trouble:
Solomon's Temple built by Nephilim?
1 Kings 7 is the chapter that tells us that Solomon hired Hiram of Tyre(an area known for Baal worship) to build the Temple of God. That always made me curious. Chapter 8 goes on to describe the completion of the Temple and Solomon's prayer of dedication. The next chapter reveals God's acceptance of all that Solomon had done - but it came with a warning:
The Lord said to him, “I have heard your prayer and your petition. I have set this Temple apart to be holy—this place you have built where my name will be honored forever. I will always watch over it, for it is dear to my heart. As for you, if you will follow me with integrity and godliness, as David your father did, obeying all my commands, decrees, and regulations, then I will establish the throne of your dynasty over Israel forever. For I made this promise to your father, David: ‘One of your descendants will always sit on the throne of Israel.' But if you or your descendants abandon me and disobey the commands and decrees I have given you, and if you serve and worship other gods, then I will uproot Israel from this land that I have given them. I will reject this Temple that I have made holy to honor my name. I will make Israel an object of mockery and ridicule among the nations."
- 1 Kings 9:3-7 (NLT) [emphasis mine]
It is clear from the above passage that it was God who made the Temple of Solomon holy. That appears to be in spite of how it was built and by whom. That same chapter goes on to say that it took twenty years to build the Temple and Solomon's royal palace. It was built by forced labor. Who was forced to build these things?
There were still some people living in the land who were not Israelites, including Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. These were descendants of the nations whom the people of Israel had not completely destroyed. So Solomon conscripted them for his labor force, and they serve in the labor force to this day.
- Kings 9:20-21 (NLT) [emphasis mine]
Notice that it says these were the "descendants of the nations whom the people of Israel had not completely destroyed." Those were Nephilim nations!
