O desafio de Salomão

O tempo é o décimo século antes de Cristo. Salomão agora tem o desafio de suceder o grande Rei Davi. Ele não tem nenhuma dúvida de que a tarefa é difícil e, por isso, mais do que riquezas e poder, pede sabedoria a Deus (1 Reis 3). Seu grande desafio era o de construir o templo para Deus tão desejado pelo pai. O lugar escolhido, o Monte Moriá (lugar onde Abraão teria oferecido Isaque a Deus).

Naquele tempo, a Arca da Aliança (objeto sagrado no qual Deus se manifestava) era o centro do culto de Israel. Ela ficava no chamado “Santos dos Santos”, lugar mais interior do Tabernáculo. Agora, segundo o desejo de Davi que se sentia incomodado por habitar num palácio, enquanto a habitação de Deus entre os homens era uma tenda, Salomão decide construir um templo digno do Deus verdadeiro. Estudos feitos por americanos e judeus na década de vinte mostraram que, corrigidos os índices inflacionários, o Templo de Salomão deve ter custado por volta de US$ 3 a 5 bilhões.

Uma vez pronto, a cerimônia de consagração trouxe grande júbilo, música e grande gratidão, especialmente no momento em que a Arca foi entronizada – II Cr 5 e 6. Nesse momento, a glória de Deus enche o templo.

No capítulo 6:12-42 temos a oração de Salomão. Ele sabe que a base das promessas de Deus são a dependência que temos nele. Seus pedidos são voltados para outros fatos vitais do caráter de Deus, tais quais Seu amor incomparável que determina sua constante prontidão para ouvir e perdoar o povo.

No capítulo 7 vemos que os incontáveis sacrifícios de Salomão são queimados como oferenda a Deus por sua presença e aprovação. Segue-se, então, sete dias de festas que acontecem no período da Festa dos Tabernáculos.

O período do reinado de Salomão se tornou conhecido como o apogeu da prosperidade em Israel, pois além de ser um período de grande paz, reis de todos os lugares vinham a Israel para conhecer o templo e pedir conselhos ao Rei mais sábio do mundo.

Contudo, mesmo sendo o homem mais sábio que já viveu, sua sabedoria não o livrou das quedas e desvios de caráter. Salomão, por conta dos muitos amores e mulheres, construiu templos pagãos e consentiu aquilo que mais reprovava, afastando-se paulatinamente de Deus.
Não tivera sido a grande misericórdia de Deus em perdoar seus filhos arrependidos, Salomão teria caminhado definitivamente para a apostasia.

No livro de Eclesiastes (livro em que escreve no final de sua vida), Salomão reconhece que experimentou o melhor dessa vida e, no entanto, nada desse mundo pode satisfazer verdadeiramente o homem. Reconhece, portanto, que todos deveriam temer a Deus em primeiro lugar e fazer o bem.
Salomão, ainda que tenha sido um grande homem, foi um homem comum: cheio de defeitos e qualidades. Ele representa todos aqueles que começam bem e podem acabar mal. Para mim, sua história de conquistas e arrependimentos nos traz uma grande advertência.

Destarte, precisamos tomar cuidado especialmente quando vivermos tempos de vitórias.
Graças a Deus, contudo, por sua graça e seu poder transformador. Ele não desiste de nós.

  3. Olá, pr. Lamartine.
    Aproveitando o tema sobre Salomão gostaria de perguntar uma coisa: a Bíblia diz que ele recebia anualmente um valor em impostos, no peso de ouro: 666 talentos. Obviamente esse valor salta aos olhos por causa do apocalipse de João.
    Enfim, existe alguma correlação entre a quase apostasia de Salomão, sua grande riqueza e a apostasia moderna que vai culminar com a rendição a satanás?
