Solomon’s Millennial Kingdom

1 Kings 1-10 provides a wealth of insight into the Messianic millennial kingdom.  After David battled practically his whole reign to establish the strength of Israel, Solomon spends virtually his entire reign building – building the Temple, the palaces, the royal cities, ships, and on and on.  No doubt YHWH planned this to give us a peek at the future.  The glory of that time is hinted at:  “All the earth was seeking the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom which God had put in his heart.”  1 Kings 10:24

This will surely be true of Yahshua in that day:

Now it will come about that
In the last days
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the law will go forth from Zion
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
And He will judge between the nations,
And will render decisions for many peoples;
And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.”  Isaiah 2:2-4

“Many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord And to the house of the God of Jacob, That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His paths.” For from Zion will go forth the law, Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”  Micah 4:2

Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘It will yet be that peoples will come, even the inhabitants of many cities.  The inhabitants of one will go to another, saying, “Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I will also go.”  So many peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord.’  Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”  Zechariah 8:20-23
