Now this African Queen comes to Solomon just to see what He is all about and who is responsible for all these riches and knowledge and honor. I would like to say that God is the same One who could promote such wisdom in Solomon’s day and He is still the same God of the New Testament days in which we are still living. I am teaching a couple Bible studies from the Old Testament, one is in the book of Judges and some of it is quite gruesome. But then again, in light of recent news headlines, we in our day can see how gruesome mankind can be because of sin. At the end of her visit, Queen Sheba said, “The half has not been told.” When I come to the New Testament, I can almost say the same thing, “The half has not been told,” especially when one comes to the last book in the Bible, Revelation.
The same God who promoted Solomon and peace in his day is the One I worship and serve. Will you serve Him too through the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Savior? The peaceful reign of Solomon is a typical picture of the coming reign of peace of Christ in Revelation 19 & 20, which many of us Christians call the Millennial reign of Christ.
