The Church Of God In The House Of God

Words In Season:
If God enters into the house of an idol, the idol is in trouble. Same goes for the idol if he enters into the House of God.
Abridged and adopted.

Bearing:
"When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon." "And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again." "And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him."
✝ 1 Samuel 5: 2 - 4
Bottomline:
Just as a word can have two or more meanings and yet be spelt with same letters, so it is with the word "Church"
The first meaning is a group of called out people by God. Not to waste time and words with theological exegetics using words like Ecclesia etc, it simply means THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
The second meaning of "Church" is a place where THE PEOPLE OF GOD gather to meet, worship and call upon God. And without exegetical adumbrations, it simply means THE HOUSE OF GOD. Our modern day grammarians call this facility "Place of Worship" David expressed his joy in Psalms when he was told "....let us go to THE HOUSE OF GOD"
Jacob in the book of Genesis called THE HOUSE OF GOD the GATE OF HEAVEN when God opened his spiritual eyes to see awesome activities going on there in the spirit realm. Genesis 28:16 - 17. So be it a thatched roofed 10 x 12 feet in dimension structure, as long as THE PEOPLE OF GOD meets and worship there, it is THE HOUSE OF GOD - Church. And if it be a gigantic monument like The Ark that the construction kicked off in Canaanland Ota Nigeria as long as THE PEOPLE OF GOD meets and worship God there, it is THE HOUSE OF GOD. We take our stand very firm that a structure like The Ark, now under construction very necessary and not a waste of resources as long as it is THE PEOPLE OF GOD that will be meeting there. And not league matches will be played and watched there, football or handball or both.
To God the magnitude or dimension or aesthetics and beauty, be it of cheap or the most expensive materials of is of no consequence as long as it HIS PEOPLE that are gathered together to worship and to pray unto Him in HIS HOUSE. It is THE CHURCH meeting in THE CHURCH. Church is summarised in one sentence - PEOPLE OF GOD gathered unto God in THE HOUSE OF GOD.
He or she who disagree with this is of no consequence. Now where "cometh" the huges resources to help build this magnificent edifices of HOUSES OF GOD spread across the nations of the earth? They "... cometh from The Lord Who made the heaven and the earth." Psalm 121:2 If you have not heard this before, then hear it for the very first time; "God's work, done God's way will never lack provisions and supply" To the faithful God will be faithful. The church of God and any facility where they gather to meet to pray to God and worship Him is refered to by same name - church.
Have you ever spoken against this name carrying twin interrelated meanings? I mean have you ever opened your mouth to speak against the church, even God's own very Church and properties? Because both HIS PEOPLE and HIS HOUSE are His properties.
Honestly this may be is one of the reasons you are going through your current seeminly insurmountable travails. Because God will have no choice than to defend His church against people like you who attacks it. Of course by attacking you back. And when a man is under attack from God not demons, the deliverance minister that will deliver him is not yet ordained into ministry - laymen or clergy!
For speaking against His church, that means your idol has entered into the house of God - of course with your mouth. And God too decided to pay a return visit to your house. And either way, you are screwed!
Yet God is still willing and ready to forgive you, provided you repent of your sins and turn to Him. And what are you still waiting for? Take a step of faith now, repent of your sins and believe and receive Jesus His son as Lord and Saviour today. And you shall be saved and kept safe. #IstandforTheGospelofChrist
