THE AMERICAN DESTINY
2 CHRONICLES 7:12 - 16
12) Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the kings house; and Solomon
successfully accomplished all that came into his heart to make in the house of the Lord
and in his own house. Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said to him: "I

out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods, and worshipped them and served
them, therefor He has brought all this calamity on them."
