DCLM Daily Manna 8 February 2023 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The Great Temple Of God


TOPIC: The Great Temple Of God (DCLM Daily Manna 8 February 2023)

KEY VERSE: “And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set” (2 Chronicles 4:19).

TEXT: 2 Chronicles 4:9-22 (KJV)

9 Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.

10 And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, over against the south.

11 And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basons. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God;

12 To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;

13 And four hundred pomegranates on the two wreaths; two rows of pomegranates on each wreath, to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were upon the pillars.

14 He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases;

15 One sea, and twelve oxen under it.

16 The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the Lord of bright brass.

17 In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.

18 Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out.

19 And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set;

20 Moreover the candlesticks with their lamps, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, of pure gold;

21 And the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, made he of gold, and that perfect gold;

22 And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.


The text under consideration talks about the completion of the magnificent temple of King Solomon. Most of the articles were made of precious metals such as bronze, brass, silver and pure gold. The building was expensively furnished, and nothing less could befit our great God who is preparing superlative beautiful mansions for believers in heaven.

Unfortunately, this great temple, the pride of Israel which took King Solomon seven years to build was later destroyed by Babylon due to the sin and apostasy of the nation. The temple has been rebuilt at least three times; yet, none of them could compare with Solomon’s temple. That former beauty could not be attained again. This shows that any nation that rejects Christ and forsakes God can lose its greatness, fame and glory when the day of reckoning comes.

This is a lesson to believers that no matter the beauty of their cathedrals, mighty churches, mansions, or any other work they feel they have done for the Lord, sin or backsliding can plunder all these within a moment. However, the greatest temple a believer can ever build for God is his/her body (1 Corinthians 6:19). Sin is deadly and destructive and it is a predator to wasters, devourers and plunderers. No earthly works can men offer to God in exchange for genuine salvation, holiness, faithfulness and close walk with Him. Sinners, backsliders and apostates should repent and come back to the narrow way before it is too late.

If your body is God’s temple, how suitable is it?

Matthew 24-25
