JACHIN AND BOAZ.
Shalom, may the name of our Lord be blessed forever.
The Word of God tells us ..
Lamentations 3:22-23 “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. It is new every morning. ”.
And you who read this message may the mercy of the Lord never cease upon you.
Today we will briefly learn, a few things to consider when we go to the house of the Lord either to talk to Him, or to worship Him, it may be in a church, or in a seminar, or wherever you can worship God.
As we read in the Old Testament we see that the time came for Solomon to build a House (Temple) for God that would be the center of all Israel, and all the nations of the world to worship God, and atone for their sins at that time.
It was built for 7 years, and in that construction, there were too many criteria to consider, as well as dimensions. And everything that was made there was revealing a great spiritual thing to the church of the present day, the golden Cherubs set there were revealing something spiritual, the 7 candlesticks, as well as the golden and bronze altars, all of them had a meaning, even the ark of the covenant and the ornaments that were in there.
Now, near the very end of the construction, Solomon was led to build two more parts, and that was the two main pillars that stood at the entrance of the Temple. The pillars were long and wide.
The first pillar was on the right side of the temple, and the second pillar was on the left side.
The one on the right was called JACHIN. And the one on the left was called BOAZI.
2Chronicles 3:17 “And he reared up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin, and the name of that on the left Boaz ”
Now the meaning of those words is this:
JACHIN: IT IS THOUGHT HE WILL PROVE IT.
By Boaz: IT IS THOUGHT TO BE STRONG.
There was no way for the priest to enter the temple, to go to the Most Holy Place, to perform the rituals and not to go between the two pillars. They were like pillars of the temple.
Revealing that whoever enters the crossing of those pillars must be in his head, that God will prove (Jachin), And in there is also the power of God (Boaz).
So when a priest enters in, for any activity either for the atonement or for the intercession of the saints, he is convinced that God must answer their prayers, that is, confirm his covenant with Abraham, and also he knows that God’s power is in that temple, so he must be careful what he does otherwise he will be seeking death for himself or even trouble for all the children of Israel.
The pillars stood still as long as the temple was in existence.
But what message are we given to the new covenant?
The Bible likens the church of Christ to the temple of God, when we go out to His house or to His presence, we are all going to be like the priests of God, so the Lord wants each of us to know that the two pillars (ie Jachin and Boaz) stand in front of the temple, his holy.
He wants us to know that when we go to His house we know that God is there, to confirm His covenant with the saints through Jesus Christ. And that when you go to pray, or worship Him or ask for anything, He is there to hear and answer your prayers, according to the words of Christ (in John 14:13) That’s right, so get to know that in your head that God keep his covenants.
He also wants you to know that there is a power in him. So be careful not to go to house carnally. Some people decide to go to church with their clothes half naked, they go to church with their tights, and womens with their trousers, thinking that they are going to meet the gods who can’t do anything. They do not know that when a building is called a church, or a house of God, there is already a pillar called Boaz standing outside in spirit!, that is, inside is the great power of God, which kills and revives.
So when a man/woman enters without respect, he is looking for a curse for himself/herself. That you should know this daughter of God, that you should know this young man,. When you go to church, and you know yesterday you came out of adultery, and at the same time you go to partake of the Lord’s Supper, then You are looking for your own curse .. (Read here to see the curse that befell the people of such type, (Corinthians 11: 27-34)
The house of God is not to be mocked at all.
Mark 11:17 “And he taught, saying unto them, What do ye? Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? But ye have made it a den of thieves”.
So brethren, if you are a Christian, consider these two things, keep them in your head always in His House God confirms, and in His house there is power. (Jachin and Boaz)
The Lord bless you.
