FRIDAY, AUGUST 18
Scripture: 1 Chronicles 22:14-16
Verse 14 in the Message Bible says, “Look at this—I’ve gone to a lot of trouble to stockpile materials for the sanctuary of God: a hundred thousand talents (3,775 tons) of gold, a million talents (37,750 tons) of silver, tons of bronze and iron—too much to weigh—and all this timber and stone. And you’re free to add more.” When it came to the preparation for the temple, King David experienced the God of too much. And since this is a type-and-shadow temple, should we not expect to experience too much in God’s preparation for the great end-time harvest? The anointing on King David was too much for his enemies – no one could stand as his enemy. We should expect to see the same thing. The anointing of God that brought David spoil was too much to count or weigh – 3,775 tons of gold is 7,550,000 lbs. or 120,800,000 ounces. Today, that is close to $150 billion just in gold. When you do the numbers on silver, you have almost $20 billion in silver. And there was too much bronze and iron even to weigh. That much abundance is a picture and it is in the Word for a reason. Jesus died for living stones that make up the living temple that is coming down out of heaven and merging with the earth. If God did this for a type-and-shadow, how much more would He do for a living temple made of eternal stones? That is a question we need to ask ourselves and adjust our faith accordingly!
