Isaiah 66:1 unveils to us the longing of the God of the universe—that although God has heaven for His throne and the earth as His footstool, He is “homeless;” He is seeking a house, a place for His rest. In the Old Testament, God’s people erected the tabernacle and built the temple, places where His glory could abide. Nevertheless, His ultimate intention was not to make His home in a physical building. His deep desire, rather, was to become a man, Jesus Christ, then to die and resurrect to join Himself to His people, making them His corporate dwelling place, the church. God’s house, the church, is still being built today.
How Awesome is this Place!
The Church as the House of the Living God
Being Built Together into a Dwelling Place of God in Spirit
Behold the Tabernacle of God is with Man
