Newberry, Thomas-Solomon’s Temple

Introduction
Solomon’s Temple on Moriah
Interior of Solomon’s Temple
When the Lord God-Jehovah-Elohim, the Triune God—had planted the garden of Eden, and filled it with everything that could delight the senses, he placed man there. Adam and Eve having sinned, and hearing the voice of God, walking in the garden in the cool of the day, they hid themselves from His presence amongst the trees. God asked, “Adam, where art thou? “And he said, “I heard Thy voice… and I was afraid” (Gen_3:10).
Concerning Enoch, the seventh from Adam, it is recorded that “he walked with God” (Gen_5:21-24). The word is the same as is used of Jehovah walking in the garden. It is implied that before the Fall, God walked with man and man with God. “Enoch walked with God. “When he struck out on that path he was not the inventor of it. God had set the example. He desires companionship with us more than we do with Him. The walk begun in Eden, broken off by sin, was renewed with Enoch, amid the evils of a fallen world, continued with Noah and all the children of faith onward to the Cross. A Sunday-school teacher, explaining the translation of Enoch to her class, thus expressed herself:— “God was in the habit of taking long walks with Enoch, and one evening, when they had gone far and talked so long, it was too late for Enoch to go back to his home, so God took him home with Him. “Thus shall it be with all who walk with God. That walk begun in Paradise before the Fall, renewed in grace, taken up in resurrection by the Lord Jesus, will be continued in the Paradise of God through eternity, in that eternal day which knows no shadow and no evening. “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” (1Th_4:16-17) the Lord will come and take His pilgrim people who walk with Him down here to be forever with Himself at home up there. “The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them and shall lead them” (Rev_7:17). According to His own words, “I go to prepare a place for you…I come again, and will receive you unto Myself.” (Joh_14:2-3).
