Building on the true foundation

BUILDING ON THE TRUE FOUNDATION

 (First part)

Memory verse: Luke 6:46-48 : “ But why do you call Me “ Lord, Lord ” and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock"

Every building you see standing has a foundation. There are different things we are building daily, building your life, your home, your marriage, your business, your church, building a city, building a nation, building your carrier, building your destiny etc.

God has something to say about building and builders, “ Unless the LORD  builds the house, They labor in vain who build it ” (Psalms 127:1) Again it is written, “ This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone ” (Acts 4:11)

So many people are building on wrong foundations and what they build end up collapsing, many families keep falling apart, marriages are breaking, businesses are collapsing, nations are disintegrating, economies are sinking because men are building on wrong values, traditions, principles. Jesus said to the Pharisees that they had rejected Him, the true stone or true foundation, the cornerstone and what they built has not stood the test of time. But the disciples of Jesus, the Apostles, when they started building the church, they built on the true foundation and the church is still standing to-date despite all that Satan has tried to do through the ages to destroy it. Jesus promised to build his church and the gates of hell shall not be able to destroy it (Matt 16:17-18)

Building without God only leads to frustration. Trusting in your own understanding will only end you in ruins. The scriptures teaches that the wisdom of this age (men) and the rulers of this age (witchcraft) comes to nothing, (I Cor 2:6). So many great kingdoms from Nimrod days, Egyptian kingdom, Assyrian kingdom, Babylonian kingdom, until now, these kingdoms were built on men’s wisdom and the magicians, but they all collapsed! Today, God is again shaking nations of the world and their systems that have been built for ages on human wisdom and satanic manipulations. Today families are breaking down because they have forsaken God’s righteousness and opted for their rights.
