House of Rolls
Ezra 6:1 (KJB) Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.
I hope you know that the context of this verse is not all about donuts and sugary confections or about homemade buttery dinner buns.
Indeed, the rolls mentioned in this verse are pointing to an ancient room housing a collection of ancient scrolls on which were recorded God’s words and decrees. This room was the center of God’s recorded direction and commands for His people. It would be like a room filled with hard copies of all legislation proposed and passed by various political kings and leaders today, but yet different.
What is different today than in ancient times concerning God’s decrees? His commandments and direction has no age or time limit and indeed are spiritual treasures and recorded for all time. The law of God is complete by the spiritual work of Jesus Christ on Calvary. The regulations of man issued today are from man’s limited viewpoint and can be further altered and changed upon a whim. God’s Law was published to stand mighty and preserved forever (Psalm 12:6-7)
A spiritual man is directed and esteems the rolls given of God in his heart to this very day. The laws of man ebb and change with fleeting times at work in this world. The house of rolls was a delightful place mentioned in God’s Word meant for housing His very words in ancient times.
