Partnership with Hiram: 2 Chronicles 2:1–18
The extension of the building process into partnership with the resources of the world system – Please note the following:
Both David and Solomon partnered with Hiram.
Hiram had built a house for David (2 Sam: 5:11).
Hiram is the king of Tyre:
Note Tyre is a type of satan and the world system: Ezek: 28 speaks about the proclamation against the prince and king of Tyre.
Tyre represents the economic commercial system of the world. It has capacity to gain wealth, trade and operates out of the wisdom of the world in gaining riches.
In Ezekiel 28:12-13 we read – “You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created”.
It is made clear that the King of Tyre is Satan and the prince of Tyre is the economic system of the earth.
We are called to be the salt of the earth. We have to find the technology by which we can invade the systems of the earth, partnership with Hiram, and take resources out of the world to build the house of God.
That‘s the technology of Solomon, the technology to build a glorious house by extracting from the world that which we need.
Solomon therefore utilises the wealth and the resources, knowledge, skill of the world system to enrich his kingdom. We are in the world but not of the world. We are not making covenant with the spirit of the world but we will interact with and use the systems and technology of the world to build for God.
