Solomon, whose name means “peaceful,” is a type and foreshadow of Jesus Christ in His millennial reign when He brings true peace to the earth. Though people are told about what it is going to be like, most will not believe; I believe this is the case for most Christians also. The Queen of Sheba did not believe the reports about Solomon’s kingdom until she saw it with her own eyes and when she did she proclaimed, “…indeed the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame of which I heard.” (1 Kings 10:7) Queen Sheba came to honor Solomon and learn from him and, “King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired, whatever she asked, besides what Solomon had given her according to the royal generosity” (1 Kings 10:13); what a powerful picture of God's kingdom! 1 Kings 10:24 says, “Now all the earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart;” this will be how it will be with Jesus Christ when He reigns on the earth.
