The Bible is like a magnificent palace constructed of precious oriental stone, comprising sixty-six stately chambers. Each of these rooms is different from its fellows, while together, they form an edifice incomparably majestic, glorious and sublime.
In the book of Genesis, we enter the Grand Vestibule, where we are introduced to the records of the mighty work of God in Creation. This Vestibule gives access to the Law Courts passing through which we come to the Picture Gallery of the historical books. Here we find hung upon the walls scenes of battles, heroic deeds, and portraits of valiant men of God.
Beyond the Picture Gallery is the Philosopher’s Chamber – the book of Job- passing through which we enter the Music Room –the Psalms – and here we linger thrilled by the grandest harmonies that ever fell on human ears. Then we come to the Business Office – Proverbs, the Research Department – Ecclesiastes, and the Conservatory – the Song of Solomon. Next, we enter the Observatory, where the prophets are looking for the “bright and morning star with their powerful telescopes.”
Then we cross the courtyard to the Audience Chamber of the King – the Gospels – with four life-like portraits of the King himself. Next is the Work Room of the Holy Spirit – Acts – and then the Correspondence Room –the Epistles – where we see Paul, Peter, James, John and Jude, busy at their desks under the personal direction of the Spirit of Truth.
Finally, we enter the Throne Room – Revelation – where we are enrapt by the mighty volume of adoration and praise given to the King of kings. [Author Unknown].
