Book / 13 / 2142 chapter - 3
Now Solomon began to build the house of the Lord at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the Lord had appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. (2 Chronicles 3:1)
It was on this very hill that Abraham made the sacrifice of his son Isaac (Genesis 22:2), and it was on this very group of hills that Jesus would later die on the cross (Genesis 22:14).
And he began to build on the second day of the second month in the fourth year of his reign. (2 Chronicles 3:2)
Planning without execution is a wasted effort, but Solomon began to build the house of the LORD.
….and he carved cherubim on the walls. (2 Chronicles 3:7)
This was in accordance with the design of the tabernacle, which had woven designs of cherubim on the covering of the inner chamber. As a result, when entering the temple, one would see cherubim all around, just as one would see them in heaven (Psalm 80:1, Isaiah 37:16, and Ezekiel 10:3). These heavenly angelic beings never stop praising and worshipping God.
And he made the veil of blue, purple, crimson, and fine linen and wove cherubim into it. (2 Chronicles 3:14)
This was a significant barrier that divided the holy place from the Most Holy Place in the temple. Behind the curtain and into the holiest part of the temple could go just one man - the high priest, and only once a year.
It was this veil that was torn from top to bottom at the death of Jesus (Matthew 27:51), showing that through His death, there is no longer a barrier to the Most Holy place.
Now the Most Holy Place is open to us: brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh (Hebrews 10:19-20). The torn veil of Matthew 27:51 also symbolizes the broken body of Jesus, through which we have access to the Most Holy Place.
Then he set up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand and the other on the left; he called the name of the one on the right hand Jachin and the name of the one on the left Boaz. (2 Chronicles 3:17)
Jachin means He shall establish and Boaz means in strength.
