WISE KING SOLOMON WHAT HAPPENED (Part 2)

July 4, 2020

Last week I blogged on the failure of King Solomon to follow God’s instructions, and thus when Solomon was old, his seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines turned away his heart from the God that blessed Him toward other gods. In this blog, I am going to share more details on Solomon’s failure and delve into why this wise man failed. To accomplish this goal, I must first share some facts from a few scriptures.

Genesis 2: 22-24 shares God’s perspective on marriage, and it says, “A man should leave his father and his mother, cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.”  Apparently, God’s mandate for marriage was two persons becoming one; He did not mean for multiple persons to become one.

In Deuteronomy 17:14-20, God talks to Moses about the laws of kingship and He made these points:

  1. A king was not to multiply horses to himself.
  2. A king was not to have multiple wives.
  3. A king was to write and keep himself a copy of God’s law, read it all the days of his life, and turn not aside from them.

Unless I overlooked it, there is no recording of Solomon continually reading and adhering to the laws of God, which was the last thing that God told Moses a king was to do. Maybe if he had done so, he wouldn’t have died outside of the will and purpose of God.

Solomon’s father David had seven wives, plus concubines, and from these unions, Solomon had eighteen brothers and one sister. If he had additional siblings from his father’s concubines, it was not recorded. Furthermore, reading the life of David reveals he, with his multiple wives, had a dysfunctional family, and Solomon experienced sibling conflict because of it.

This family dysfunction was also a generational curse that was passed down from multiple generations before Solomon’s birth, for Solomon’s father and grandfather had several wives. Why didn’t wise Solonom learn from the mistakes of his fathers?

In Proverbs 6, 7, and 9, Solomon gave words of wisdom to his son concerning resisting the seduction of strange women. When I read those chapters, I wondered why Solomon did not heed his own advice for the lust of his flesh caused him to overindulge in promiscuity.

Unfortunately, Solomon’s failure is the same failure believers are experiencing today. In many areas of our lives, we fail to bring our flesh under subjection to the Word of God. Throughout the Bible, which is haphazardly read, the scriptures tell us that we are capable of overcoming, but we regrettably succumb to out flesh rather than our spirit.

I don’t know about you, but I am going to be wiser than Solomon. Solomon died at age sixty, I am a bit older than him, and I aim not to die being foolish. I practice learning from the good and bad experiences of others. So, learning from him, I am going to read,  meditate, and follow the Word day and night, and I implore you to do the same.
