-Seed Son:.Emmanuel was the "Seed" Son. What's the seed? Luke 8:11.

Emmanuel was born of the incorruptible seed of the Father: 1Peter 1:23.

Paul skips over Moses and the Mosaic Law by 2000 years, all the way to Emmanuel. The promises were those involving faith, nothing to do with the law. The Son is the end product of the Father's intent and the energy called spirit; in this case, the Holy Spirit, as the energy to form the will of the Infinite One comes from Him, the Father, who is holy.

The promises were to Abraham and his seed. And that seed.(not seeds or it would have been all descendants all the way down to Emmanuel).was Emmanuel. There is only one Seed Son. That was Emmanuel..2Corinthians 1:20 "For all the promises of God in him are yea and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.".And just what were the promises for? 2Peter 1:4.

Follow through:.Romans 1:3; Galatians 3:16,29; Matthew 1:1; Psalms 22:30; 89:36; Galatians 3:8,14,29.

The 42nd generation spoken of in Matthew is the 'seed Son'.(Romans 4:13,16).which is us with Christ in us, meaning His nature of love in us:.Colossians 1:27; 1Corinthians 12:12; Daniel 7:27; Psalms 22:30. In this seed.(Christ with we in Him).all will be blessed:.Galatians 3:6-9; Isaiah 61:9; Matthew 13:38.
   The 42 generations...

-Sennacherib: Sennacherib reigned B.C.E. 703-681 as king of Assyria, son and successor of his father Sargon II. Sennacherib retained the lands conquered by his father and like Sargon, he also moved his capital from Dur Sharrukin to Nineveh, where he built his palace.

In B.C.E. 689, when Babylonia was again seething with unrest, Sennacherib razed the entire city and flooded the site.

Sennacherib's son Esarhaddon.(reigned B.C.E. 681-669:.2Kings 19:37).was more favorably disposed toward Babylonia and helped to rebuild it. His major military success consisted of crossing the frontier of Egypt and capturing Memphis, its capital. Esarhaddon was grandson of Sargon II.

On the death of Sargon II, king of Assyria and the accession of Sennacherib to the throne of Assyria, Hezekiah king of Judah shook off off the yoke of the Assyrians by refusing to pay the tribute by which Ahaz his father had suffered under Tiglath-pileser. Hezekiah had."rebelled against the king of Assyria and served him not".(2Kings 18:1-7), instead selecting to enter into a league with Egypt.

This led to the invasion of Judah by Sennacherib.(2Kings 18:13).who marched an army against Hezekiah's domain, taking forty cities and besieged Jerusalem with mounds. Sennacherib ook all of Hezekiah's kingdom under his control:.Isaiah 36:1,2.

One series of ancient tablets recounts the warlike exploits of Sennacherib, who called himself 'the subduer of kings from the upper sea of the setting Sun to the lower sea of the rising Sun' that is, from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf.

Hezekiah, seeing he had nothing left but Jerusalem, which he perhaps found it difficult to preserve, sent ambassadors to Sennacherib to make submission. Sennacherib accepted his tribute, but refused to depart from Jerusalem and sent Rabshakeh, who was one of his trusted men, with an insolent message to Jerusalem to reach Hezekiah.

Hezekiah believed in God and prayed about this dilemma. God answered. A destroying angel was sent against the Assyrian army and slew in one night 185,000 men. Sennacherib, surprised at having lost so many men in his army returned with all speed to Nineveh and turned those of his army that remained with him,  against the nations south of Assyria and afterwards towards the north. But his career was not long. Within two or three years from his return from Jerusalem, while he was paying adorations to his god Nisroch in the temple, his two sons Adrammelech and Sharezer slew him and fled into Armenia. Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead; the story:.2Kings 18:13-19:37

Confirmation of the above Bible history has been found in the long buried ruins of ancient Nineveh. The mound called Kouyunijik, opposite Mosul, has been to a good degree explored and its ruins prove to be those of a palace erected by this powerful monarch. The huge stone tablets which formed the walls of its various apartments are covered with bas-reliefs and inscriptions and though large portions of these have perished by violence and time, the fragments that remain are full of interest.

The inscription then proceeds to say "Hezekiah king of Judah, who had not submitted to my authority, forty-six of his principal cities and fortresses and villages dependant upon them, of which I took no account, I captured and carried away their spoil. The fortified towns and the rest of his towns which I spoiled, I severed from his country and gave to the kings of Askelon, Ekron and Gaza, so as to make his country small. In addition to the former tribute imposed upon their countries, I added a tribute the nature of which I fixed." 2Kings 18:13-19:37; Isaiah 36:1-38

He does not profess to have taken Jerusalem itself, but to have carried away Hezekiah's family, servants and treasures, with a tribute of thirty talents of gold and eight hundred talents of silver. The amount of gold is the same mentioned in the Bible narrative. The three hundred talents of silver mentioned in Scripture may have been all that was given in money and the five hundred additional claimed in the Ninevite record may include the temple and palace treasures, given by Hezekiah as the price of peace.

Sennacherib's own account of this invasion, as given in the Assyrian annals, is in these words: "Because Hezekiah, king of Judah, would not submit to my yoke, I came up against him, and by force of arms and by the might of my power I took forty-six of his strong fenced cities and of the smaller towns which were scattered about, I took and plundered a countless number. From these places I took and carried off 200,156 persons, old and young, male and female, together with horses and mules, asses and camels, oxen and sheep, a countless multitude and Hezekiah himself I shut up in Jerusalem, his capital city, like a bird in a cage, building towers round the city to hem him in and raising banks of earth against the gates, so as to prevent escape, then upon Hezekiah there fell the fear of the power of my arms and he sent out to me the chiefs and the elders of Jerusalem with 30 talents of gold and 800 talents of silver and divers treasures, a rich and immense booty all these things were brought to me at Nineveh, the seat of my government." 

In another apartment of the same palace was found a series of well preserved bas-reliefs, representing the siege and capture by the Assyrians of a large and strong city. It was doubly fortified and the assault and the defense were both fierce. Part of the city is represented as already taken, while elsewhere the battle rages still in all its fury. Meanwhile captives are seen flayed, impaled and put to the sword and from one of the gates of the city a long procession of prisoners is brought before the king, who is gorgeously arrayed and seated on his throne upon a mound or low hill. They are presented by the general in command, very possibly Rabshakeh, with other chief officers. Two eunuchs stand behind the king, holding fans and napkins. Above his head is an inscription, which is thus translated: "Sennacherib the mighty king, king of the country of Assyria, sitting on the throne of judging at the gate of the city Lachisa; I give permission for its slaughter." The captives are stripped of their armor, ornaments and much of their clothing and are evidently Jews. 

Little did Sennacherib then anticipate the utter of his ruin of his own proud metropolis and still less that the ruins of his palace should preserve to this remote age the tablets containing his own history and the image of his god Nisroch so incapable of defending him, to bear witness for the God whom he blasphemed and defied.

In the third year of his reign, Sennacherib came in conflict with an Egyptian army, sent in aid of King Hezekiah. This host he defeated and drove back:.2Kings 19:9; Isaiah 37:1-38

In B.C.E. 681 Sennacherib was murdered by his two sons:.2Kings 19:37. Esarhaddon the younger brother, who was at the time conducting a campaign against Ararat, was declared king in his stead.


-Shalmaneser: Shalmaneser was the name of many kings of Assyria:.2Kings 17:3; 18:9-12.

Shalmaneser I, reigned B.C.E. 1274-1244. Along with Tukulti-Ninurta I they expanded Assyria's boundaries in the days of the Hittites and Babylonians.

'Shalmaneser II, also known as.Ashurnasirpal-II, B.C.E. 884 to 859, king of Assyria, son of Tukulti-Ninurta-II. Shalmaneser-II was between kings Tiglath-pileser-ii and Sennacherib.

From B.C.E. 9th to the 7th century, Babylonia's northern neighbor, Assyria, amassed.significant territory under the rule of Ashirnasirpur II.(another spelling of Ashurnasirpal II).and his successors. Assyria's attempt to conquer Babylonia in B.C.E. 7th century failed and the region was absorbed into Babylonia.

He restored the Assyrian city of Calah, which he made his capital, instead of Ashur, the old capital. Numerous inscribed monuments of Ashurnasirpal have been found in the ruins of Calah.

Shalmaneser III, reigned B.C.E. 859-824, was the son of Ashurnasirpal II. He loaded taxes upon the lands of Aram and Israel he conquered west of the Euphrates. His monuments in the British Museum include the slabs of bronze known as Gates of Balawat and the Black Obelisk on which Jehu, king of Israel, is depictedat Shalmaneser's feet.

Shalmaneser IV, no information on him.

Shalmaneser V, son and successor of Tiglath-Pileser-III, reigned B.C.E. 727-722, December to December. This was the Shalmaneser of the Bible:.2Kings 17:3; 18:9-12. He was king of Assyria between Tiglath-pileser-III and Sennacherib

Comprised with.Amtract Dictionary:.Scripture reports that he came into Palestine, subdued Samaria and obliged Hoshea to pay him an annual tribute to the treasury at Nineveh.(2Kings 17:4-6), but in the third year, being weary of this exaction, Hoshea combined secretly with So, King of Egypt to remove the subjection. No help, however, came from Egypt and Hoshea had to face the chastising forces of his suzerain with his own unaided resources, the result being that he was taken prisoner outside Samaria and most likely carried away to Nineveh. Shalmaneser brought an army against him, ravaged Samaria, besieged Hoshea in his capital and notwithstanding his long resistance of three years.(2Kings 17:1-41; 18:9-12), he took the city and dismantled it, put Hoshea into bonds and carried away most of the people beyond the Euphrates. He thus ruined the kingdom of Samaria, which had subsisted two hundred and fifty-four years, from B.C.E. 975 to 721. Hezekiah king of Judah successfully resisted him. In Josephus it's said Shalmaneser ravaged.Moaband conquered Phoenicia, with the exception of insular.Tyre, which he besieged.in vain for five years.

Shalmaneser-v brought an army against Hoshea, ravagedSamaria, besieged Hoshea in his capital and notwithstanding his long resistance of three years, he took the city and dismantled it, put Hoshea into bonds and carried away most of the people beyond the Euphrates:.2Kings 17:1-6; 18:9-12. He thus ruined the kingdom of Samaria, which had subsisted two hundred and fifty-four years, from B.C.E. 975 to 721.

The Biblical narrative goes on to say that Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land and went up to Samaria and besieged it 3 years. There is reason to believe that, as the siege of Samaria was proceeding, Shalmaneser retired to Nineveh and died, for when the city was taken in B.C.E. 722, it is Sargon who claims in his copious annals to have captured it and carried its inhabitants into captivity. 

The bas-relief on a Assyrian obelisk of black marble, six and a half feet high and covered on all sides with inscriptions, discovered in the ruins of the northwest palace at Nimroud, is believed from various evidences to represent Shalmaneser-v receiving tribute from those whom he subdued.
 


Shishak: also called Sheshonk I, a Pharaoh of Egypt invaded and plundered the kingdom of Rehoboam and despoiled the temple. The kingdom was then divided.(map). The rebel leader became king, as Jeroboam I, over the northern parts of the old kingdom known afterward as the Kingdom of Israel and its inhabitants included 10 of the original 12 tribes, all except Judah and Benjamin who comprised the southern kingdom. Rehoboam remained king over the southern parts of the kingdom, known afterward as the Kingdom of Judah; about 300 square miles.(about 775 sq km).in area.
-Solomon: Although Solomon had many wives.(1Kings 11:2-4), he only had one son, Rehoboam. Although Solomon himself was wise, he failed to teach wisdom to his son, but he wrote much wisdom, which is recorded in the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Perhaps his son Rehoboan, didn't care much for his dad or his writings.

Solomon followed his father David as king of Israel as it was, before splitting into two nations, that of Israel and Judah.(map).

Before the split, Solomon reigned over all Israel from the city of Jerusalem:.1Kings 11:42 "And the time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel was forty years."

Solomon had it all, because the Creator gave it to him:.Ecclesiastes 1:12-18; 2:1-10; 1Kings 4:29-34 "And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country and all the wisdom of Egypt.(an example 1Kings 3:16-28). For he was wiser than all men, wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite and Heman and Chalcol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. His fame was in all nations round about. And he spake three thousand proverbs and his songs were a thousand and five. And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springs out of the wall. He spake also of beasts and of fowl and of creeping things and of fishes. And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom."

1Kings 4:26 "And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots and twelve thousand horsemen." Luke 12:27 "Consider the lilies how they grow. They toil not. They spin not and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Solomon had three thousand three hunderd officers over the seventy four thousand workers he had.(1Kings 3:5-15).and still needed others for the project he was working on.

Just why did the Creator give all this to him?.2Chronicles 1:7-12 "In that night did God appear unto Solomon and said unto him, Ask what I shall give you. And Solomon said unto God, You have showed great mercy unto David my father and have made me to reign in his stead. Now, O LORD God, let your promise unto David my father be established. For you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people. For who can judge this your people, that is so great.(so many in number)? And God said to Solomon, Because this was in your heart and you have not asked riches, wealth or honour, nor the life of your enemies, neither yet have asked long life, but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge my people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge is granted unto you and I will give you riches and wealth and honour such as none of the kings have had that have been before you, neither shall there any after you have the like."

Comprised from.Easton's Bible Dictionary: The word 'Solomon' means 'peaceful'. Solomon was David's second son by Bathsheba. He was probably born about B.C.E. 1035:.1Chronicles 22:5; 29:1.

He succeeded his father David on the throne in early manhood, probably at about sixteen or eighteen years of age.

Nathan, to whom his education was entrusted, called him Jedidiah, meaning 'beloved of the Lord':.2Samuel 12:24,25. His father chose him as his successor, passing over the claims of his elder sons:.1Kings 1:13 ".....Assuredly Solomon my son shall reign after me.....".His history is recorded in 1Kings 1-11th chapters and 2Chronicles 1-9th chapters. Though he built the temple of God, he was not a good king for the people:.1Kings 11:6.

His elevation to the throne took place before his father's death and was hastened on mainly by Nathan and Bathsheba, in consequence of the rebellion of Adonijah, David's son:.1Kings 1:5-40. During his long reign of forty years, B.C.E. 1015-975, the Hebrew monarchy gained its highest splendor. The first half of his reign was however, by far the brighter and more prosperous.

The latter half was clouded by the idolatries into which he fell, mainly from his heathen intermarriages:.1Kings 11:1; 14:21,31;.Nehemiah 13:26 "Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? Yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God and God made him king over all Israel. Nevertheless even him did outlandish.(Solomon liked exotic women).women cause to sin.".God became displeased with Solomon and gave his kingdom to he who became known as Jeroboam I:.1Kings 11:31.

Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived, except when it came to his love of strange women. Read the books of.Proverbs.and.Ecclesiastes.and the.Song of Solomon.and gain from his wisdom. If you want to be wise, walk with wise people and learn wise things that affect the heart, like 1, 2. Also treasure wise books and information on the Internet.

The lesson of king Solomon's life is, no matter how much wisdom you have, no matter how much wealth you have, without the constant.determination toward continuance of high consciousness ways, you'll lose it. Look what happened to Solomon:.1Kings 11:1-11.

But, at the end of his life and looking back on it all, he came to see the determination he should have held close to his heart in earlier years:.Ecclesiastes 2:12; 12:13.

Before his death David gave parting instructions to his son Solomon:.1Kings 2:1-9; 1Chronicles 22:7-16

As soon as he had settled himself in his kingdom, Solomon arranged the affairs of his extensive empire and entered into an alliance with Egypt by the marriage of the daughter of Pharaoh.(1Kings 3:1), of whom however, nothing further is recorded.

Solomon surrounded himself with all the luxuries and the external grandeur of an Eastern monarch and his government prospered. He entered into an alliance with Hiram, king of Tyre, who in many ways greatly assisted him in his numerous undertakings. 

For some years before his death, David was engaged in the active work of collecting materials.(1Chronicles 29:6-9; 2Chronicles 2:3-7).for building a temple in Jerusalem as a permanent abode for the ark of the covenant:.1Chronicles 22:19

David was not permitted to build the house of the Creator, called a tabernacle:.1Chronicles 22:8. That honour was reserved to his son Solomon. 

After the completion of the temple, Solomon engaged in the erection of many other buildings of importance in Jerusalem and in other parts of his kingdom. For the long space of thirteen years he was engaged in the erection of a royal palace on Ophel.(a part of ancient Jerusalem close to the temple):.1Kings 7:1-12.

It was 100 cubits.(one cubit anciently is arm's length to tip of middle finger from the elbow, so about 17-24 inches).long, 50 cubits broad and 30 high. Its lofty roof was supported by forty five cedar pillars, so that the hall was like a forest of cedar wood. In front of this 'house' was another building, which was called the Porch of Pillars and in front of this again was the 'Hall of Judgment' or Throne room.(1Kings 7:7; 10:18-20; 2Chronicles 9:17-19), 'the King's Gate', where he administered justice and gave audience to his people. This palace was a building of great magnificence and beauty. A portion of it was set apart as the residence of the queen consort.(his companion), the daughter of Pharaoh. From the palace there was a private staircase of red and scented sandal wood which led up to the temple.

Solomon also constructed great works for the purpose of securing a plentiful supply of water for the city:.Ecclesiastes 2:4-6. He then built Millo for the defence of the city, completing a line of ramparts.(a fortification consisting of an embankment, often with a parapet {a low protective wall or railing along the edge of a raised structure such as a roof or balcony} built on top).around it:.1Kings 9:15,24; 11:27. He erected also many other fortifications for the defence of his kingdom at various points where it was exposed to the assault of enemies:.1Kings 9:15-19; 2Chronicles 8:2-6.

Among his great undertakings must also be mentioned the building of Tadmor in the wilderness as a commercial depot, as well as a military outpost. 

During his reign Palestine enjoyed great commercial prosperity. Extensive traffic was carried on by land with Tyre and Egypt and Arabia and by sea with Spain and India and the coasts of Africa, by which Solomon accumulated vast stores of wealth and of the produce of all nations:.1Kings 9:26-28; 10:11,12; 2Chronicles 8:17,18; 9:21.

Solomon died after 40 years ruling Israel:.1Kings 11:42,43.

This was the 'golden age' of physical Israel. The royal magnificence and splendor of Solomon's court were unrivaled.....Solomon continues
