King Solomon, the wisest man on earth, excelled in everything he did and was very successful, as God blessed him exceedingly. He however, defiantly forsook God’s laws and did as he pleased. In spite of the guidelines that God had established for a king found in Deuteronomy 17:15-17. It reads: You shall surely set as king over you him whom the Lord your God will choose. One from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you many not set a foreigner, who is not your brother, over you; but he shall not multiply horses to himself or cause the people to return to Egypt in order to multiply horses, since the Lord said to you, You shall never return that way. And he shall not multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away; neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. Solomon’s life was a prophetic representation of the wicked and rebellious world in which we live in. Putting in perspective the prophetic meanings of those behaviors in relationship with today, he mirrors the people of the end time Paul referred to Timothy: people will be lovers of self and utterly self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters (II Tim. 3:2). He multiplied horses and chariots from Egypt; he multiplied wives and multiplied for himself silver and gold. The Lord warned them never to go back to Egypt. He went above breaking God’s laws when he multiplied wives and set up places of worship for their idols to please them. They were the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were seven hundred in all. These were of the very nations of whom the Lord said to the Israelites You shall not mingle with them, neither shall they mingle with you, for surely, they will turn away your hearts after their gods. Yet, Solomon clung to these in love. He had 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines and his wives turned away his heart from God (I Kings 11: 1-3). This was a representation of today’s immorality. When he set up places for the Moloch-Saturn the fire god, he committed a serious act of wickedness against God and the children, because they were made to pass through the fire, as they worshiped the god Moloch-Saturn, although the Lord told the Israelites in Leviticus 18:21 the following: You shall not give any of your children to pass through the fire and sacrifice them to Molech (the fire god), nor shall you profane the name of your God. I am the Lord. Moloch has many names: Moloch, Dagon, Remphan, Saturn, Chronos. As a matter of fact, Stephen, before being stoned to death, indicted the Jews when he uttered these words: You took up the tent of Moloch and carried it [with you], and the star of the god Rephan, the images which you made that you might worship them; and I will remove you beyond Babylon (Acts 7:43). The star of the god Rephan appeared in many cultures before YAHSHUA’S time. It was used by Buddhists, Free Masons, Hindus, Kabbalah. It is today a deception of the New World Order. This star is a symbol of which has been used as a talisman, to summon up evil spirits in the use of magic and witchcraft. Called the star of David, it is however, the star of Solomon. King David had nothing to do with it. “The hexagram is considered to be associated with witchcraft, occult, and everything demonology right from time, this shape has fallen under scrutiny. It was used in some of the ancient occult to offer a portal/channel dark spirit and forces with their demonic energy, and only people who had given themselves over to dark forces could cast it.” (meredithgould.com/star-of-remphan/) It has been all before our eyes; but we were not able to see, due to the deception to hide the truth about it. Some of us wear it on the neck, hung on a gold or silver chain, some even with the cross of YAHSHUA, wrongly unifying the two.
The third thing in which Solomon defiantly disregarded God’s law had to do with the increase of his wealth. The number he chose to increase the gold was astonishingly significant in relationship to the antichrist’s number- the number of a man, which is 666. By increasing his gold yearly by 666 talents, he showed his rejection of God and His laws, to pursue the money god, or Mammon. He led the nation into idolatry of great proportion. By choosing the number 666, he was representing the antichrist in the power to buy or sell by demanding his mark to be imprinted on the forehead or on the right hand of the people. This is how the number 666 (the number of the antichrist), connects with Solomon. By marrying the neighboring countries’ women, he established the system of one world order, uniting all countries in its representations of wives. Israel, then became one with the rest of the world, for it followed their gods in a commonality that was complete against Israel’s true laws of God. Solomon took upon himself the heavy representation of the coming antichrist, who is to come conquering riding on a white horse. (Rev. 6:2). Also, by his idolatrous practices, he represented the false prophet, or the other beast that will rise up out of the land (Israel); he will have two horns like a lamb, and he will speak like a dragon. He exerts all the power and right of control of the former beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell upon it to exalt and deify the first beast… He performs great signs, even making fire fall from the sky to the earth in men’s sight… he also compels all both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with inscription on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp, [that is] the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is [room for] discernment. Let anyone who has intelligence calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number; his number is 666 (Rev.13:11-13,16-18).
This confirms once again, that the antichrist and the false prophet will be of Jewish descent. No other nation qualifies, since the true Messiah was born into the Jewish nation. Satan, in his deceit of the false messiah, will bring a great deception and deceive many to follow him, according to Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2:9-10: the coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of miracles and signs and delusive marvels-lying wonders, and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.
Here we have the knowledge of whom the number refers to in order to have the understanding necessary to calculate the number of the beast. May the Lord guide us into the understanding of what is happening in these end times; and may He protect our mind to discern what is truth and what is not. The best way to hear Him speak is by staying in His Word, for His Word are the words that He speaks. Let’s watch and pray and be ready when He comes to remove us out of this world, for we are not of the world. Our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for our Savior, the Lord YAHSHUA Messiah (Phil. 3:20-21).
