WHOSE HOUSE WE ARE

“But Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.” (Heb. 3:6)

 

 

While the children of Israel were passing through the wilderness, after their deliverance from Egypt, Moses was instructed to build a temporal tabernacle for use in their worship to God. This was later followed by Solomon’s temple, when they were established in their new land. Both of these buildings were to serve as an exhibition, or an earthly display of that greater spiritual habitation that is yet to be assembled, and which is now in preparation under the ministration of the Holy Spirit.

 

 

We read that “Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony (a witness) of those things to be spoken after.” The metaphor is of a “faithful steward” presiding over his master’s household. It is as illustrated in Eliezer, Abraham’s steward, the “eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had…” (Gen. 24:2) But in due time the dispensation of Moses passed away, to be followed by The Christ. And while Moses was faithful as a servant IN his house, “Christ as a Son OVER the house as a good Son. He overshadows the whole house, in perfect control of all that transpires in His house – “WHOSE HOUSE WE ARE.”

 

 

Then Peter comes along to confirm these truths, “YE ALSO, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (1Pet. 2:5)

 

Living stones built up together, growing into an holy temple. While this “spiritual house” is scattered all over the earth, throughout the nations, because it is THE SON’S house, He is over it all, it is all joined unto Him. He ministers the same divine principles to all. The responsibility for all the house belongs to the Son. He will perfect that which concerneth us, He will bring it to a successful conclusion.
