Verses 1-31

2 Chronicles 9:1-9 The Queen of Sheba Meets King Solomon (1 Kings 10:1-13 ) - Myles Munroe teaches about kingdom principles. He explains that when a king heard of another king, there was competition to demonstrate one’s greatness over the other. One king would visit the other and bring a great gift, with the intent of out giving the weaker king. The king that gave the larger offering was considered the greater king. He explains that when the queen of Sheba came to King Solomon she came with a great offering in order to test his greatness. When she arrived, she saw the prosperity of Solomon’s kingdom and the wisdom that he spoke. The queen of Sheba saw something so magnificent that she became speechless. She saw the king’s servants ministering in each of their offices with joy and under the anointing. She saw a Temple that was built and designed under the inspiration of divine ideas. Its artwork and craftsmanship were unique upon the earth and had never been done before. She met a king in whom dwelt the Spirit and wisdom of God, something that she could not match. It took her breath away. He responded by giving to the queen all of her heart’s desire. Thus, she acknowledged his greatness.

2 Chronicles 9:3 And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,

2 Chronicles 9:3 “And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon” - Comments - You must be around wise men to understand true wisdom and to become wise yourself. Being in someone's presence to learn is by far the greatest teaching tool. Jesus took twelve men and brought them beside Him so that they would not only hear His preaching, but see His life.

2 Chronicles 9:7 Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and hear thy wisdom.

2 Chronicles 9:7 Comments - King Solomon’s servants were happy. This happiness, or joy, is an outward sign of the anointing. When I first began to work as an altar worker in the ministry of helps, I used to enjoy going to church and serving in this capacity. I eventually learned that this happiness or joy that I felt was because I was serving in an anointing in the ministry of helps.

2 Chronicles 9:8 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to be king for the LORD thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do judgment and justice.
