Built to specifications!

My dear friend, church, house, holy one ...

Can I call you that?

Do you feel comfortable responding to that?

Do you consider yourself that?

Holy? House? Church? Friend of God?

Where do you come from, Daniel?

When the writer of the book of Hebrews talks to people in chapter 3, he talks to them individually. In the previous chapter he took time to explain how that Jesus had come. How that Jesus, God Himself, came in the likeliness of human flesh, accomplishing for mankind to share in His glory and authority, even calling them (us) brethren, equal to Himself ... beyond the fading glory of the law ...

Can I call you that?

Can I call you in equal regards to Christ Jesus, far above the law?

Are you a house-of-law or rather, a house-of-glory?

Well, hold on and check out what the writer of Hebrews says ...

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, the Messiah Yahushua;

Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things [Greek word pas, meaning: all individually; all; any; whole] is Elohim.

And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

But the Messiah as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Heb 3:1-6

Wait a minute!

Didn't the same author of Hebrews also say "Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building" Heb 9:11

... and Paul confirming ...

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1Co 3:16

Perfect place

Did you know that the Spirit of God requires a perfect building to dwell in?

Did you know that Jesus accomplished this perfect tabernacle through his death on the cross and was only resurrected when we were made to be perfectly righteous? (see Rom 4:25)

You have been made completely whole.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2Co 5:1

... and free, made perfect by His righteousness ...

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Rom 10:4

All because of the Perfect Designer, Architect, Engineer ...

I have raised him [talking about Jesus] up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city [a lot of houses here], and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts. Isa 45:13

No reward (houses) for our own efforts.

It is given to you. 

You are your own house ... without spot or blemish.

Isn't the Architect and Grand Designer of man just so much greater and glorious that the building He designed should contain Him instead of a set of rules and ordinances and the law?
