The Truth..Soul cont'd (3)

Did you figure out who were the two figures that GOD used to give testimony that we were in heaven before?..... One of them is King Solomon! To give you a brief history about King Solomon; at an early age, he was given a kingdom to rule over. King Solomon, prayed eagerly and offered 1,000 sacrifices to God and asked God for wisdom on how to correctly rule over God's people. God was moved and gave King Solomon wisdom. Thru God's wisdom given to King Solomon, let's understand about the fact that we were in heaven before thru the book of Proverbs.
The book of Proverbs are of King Solomon (Proverbs 1:1)In Proverbs 8:22-23, it reads, The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works before His deeds of old. I (King Solomon) was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began. King Solomon said he was appointed from eternity. When we think about eternity, there is only one place that it exists-in the kingdom of heaven, right? He also said that he was appointed before the world began. Scientifically, the world is dated to be 4.5 billion years old but King Solomon said he existed before the world began! He lived at the time of 950 BC. Is it physically possible to exist in 950 BC and be appointed before the world began? Naturally, King Solomon is not referencing his physical body but his true essence- his soul. If we continue in the same book, verses 24-26 it reads, When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I (King Solomon) was given birth, before He made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world. Let's understand this verse by verse. In verse 24, there are no oceans or springs-basically there is no water! Water is an essential element that human beings cannot live without. We use it to cook, bathe, drink etc.. Even our bodies are made up of approximately 75% water. How important is water for our vital physical existance? Very important! But King Solomon said there was no water!? How can this happen? Again, King Solomon is not speaking physically but spiritually! He was given spiritual birth. In verse 26, before the earth was formed, King Solomon existed. Moreover, before there was any dust, King Solomon existed. As we read in Genesis 2:7, one of the two elements that man is made up of is dust (body). Clearly, he existed before anybody was physically formed. Thru these verses we can understand that King Solomon was in heaven before. How did King Solomon feel in the kingdom of heaven? verse 30 reads" Then I was a craftsman at His side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in His presence. King Solomon was a craftsman (builder) by GOD's side. He rejoiced not sometimes but day after day by God's side in heaven! How incredible is this! There is another testimony from a faithful servant to GOD. Do you know who he is?
