Treasures of God's house

TREASURES OF GOD’S HOUSE

(First part) 

Memory verse (2Kings24: 13): “ And he carried out from there all the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king’s house, and he cut in pieces all the articles of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had said ”.   

When God told Moses to build him a sanctuary, he gave him the plan and pattern of how he was to build it and he gave him all details of the vessels and articles of the temple. And God commanded Moses; to do everything according to the pattern he had given to him in the mountain (Ex 25:8-9). The vessels of God’s sanctuary were very costly and precious, made of gold, silver, brass, bronze and other treasures.

In the New Testament Jesus said he came to build his house and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it (Matt 16:18). Jesus’ house that he is building until now is the church. “ But Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end ” (Heb3: 6). So, the church i.e. those whom God has called out of darkness into his kingdom is the house of God (Col1: 13, Rom8: 29-30, 1Pet2: 5). This New Testament house is not built by man but by Jesus Christ and it is designed to be a glorious house (Eph 5: 25-27). This house is designed to be full of precious spiritual treasures. In the Old Testament the temple of God was the most glorious house in all the earth, today the church of Jesus should be the most glorious institution in all the earth. The church of Jesus should be the most powerful, holy and pure, most loving, most united, full of the highest dimension of wisdom and knowledge, rich is this world and rich toward God, shaking the gates of hell and turning the world over to God, shining to dispel all the darkness of the kingdom of hell, trampling Satan under our feet, impacting the world with the power, love and glory of God, agents of change wherever God places us!

The king of Babylon came and took away all the treasures of God’s house when the children of Israel turned away from walking with God. Today the church is walking away from God’s presence and precepts of his word and Satan has stolen away spiritual treasures from the church. It’s time we awake from spiritual sleep and seek God again to recover the treasures back in our lives (2cor4: 7). 

Tomorrow’s subject: “ Satan is a thief ”.
