Solomon The King

A Look At Israel's Golden Age—And Why It Ended


Solomon’s reign is considered Israel’s golden age, when peace and prosperity prevailed and Israel was the head of all nations instead of the tail (Dt. 28:13). This issue of Israel My Glory unveils the glories of Solomon’s kingdom and what went wrong to create some of the difficulties Israel faces today. But the good news is that Israel will not suffer forever. Someday, Israel will return to God with all its heart; and God will reestablish the kingdom of David, as He promises in His Word.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, interviews Timothy Rabinek about his article, "A Taste of Tomorrow."
