Moriah Two

… where the plague was stopped

Then Solomon began to build the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David. It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, the place provided by David. 2 Chronicles 3:1 

On Mount Moriah 

thresh me there 

on the threshing floor 

bind me where 

the lamb was provided 

where the plague was stopped 

stand between 

stop my plague 

make me your living stone 

where the house of God was built 

on Mount Moriah 

Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.” Genesis 22:2

  1. It’s interesting and yet sad that people used to spend years and resources to build a temple for God, yet now we can barely dedicate a few hours a week to attend church, pray, or read the Bible. Good post!
