Let us go to the house of the Lord the third as I say of the series of those of us in this particular song is 104. David the other 324 131 and 35th Street. David is taking up the same theme that I'll decide whether I'll just be taking up the theme that David is taken cuz this was written probably many years maybe before the other moms. We can sit at the same theme of seeking to go and Worship the Lord as we've noted that was three major feces s*** and the Jews were commanded to go up to Jerusalem to take part in those feasts and David to do this, but David, Can a different time too many of the other but David has that same desire to Trudy go and Worship the Lord and bless his woman who he says I was glad when they said to me. Let us go to the house of the Lord. I feed of me standing within your Gates Joe person.

In that one Samuel 1 verse 7 says she went to the house of the Lord has a very important thing because we must dismiss all but the house of the Lord is of necessity a grand building for God is not limited to building God is with his people are in the New Testament scriptures. He says to the Corinthians 1 Corinthians 3 and verse 16. Do you not know that you are God's temple in the Ghost spirit dwells in you? We are the Temple of the Holy Spirit to feed efficiency in to drop the two of us 21. He says the church and having the house scratch strap should be enjoying together grows into a holy Temple in the Lord and in him, you also are being built together into a duet. Price with God by the spirit the Church the true church the people of God the temple of God and we don't need you still but it is not essential for us to act and worship and serve the Lord as a church and we need to remember this and that this was tremendous privilege to actually go to the city where he have been established for the Lord told him. He wants to make his Dwelling Place. He says, I think I've been standing within your Gates of Jerusalem. Under that say that the situation I don't need Bean the national capital for just a few years but it attained such a statue in the minds of those that you that Sissy and how much it meant through the entire nation that it was a tremendous privilege to be within that City to go within the gates to stay in that city as indeed. It is a tremendous privilege to stand in the city that is now the place of God's presence within the church the Glorious privilege to meet you in this unusual why but having said this about Jerusalem, he got his own in the next couple of days rescue versus but it's 3 to 6 to tell us a bit more about what you're actually means. And to all the others and verse 3 would read Jerusalem build a city that is bound firmly together, but not being allowed to build the temple, but David was allowed and encouraged to build many special buildings with in Jerusalem, and he built these in a very Grand and special light. He build is a his own Palace which in which he live across and he use the best of materials in order to build that we read into chamuel 511 that Hiram king of Tyre and Seed a tree with a compass and Masons who built David a house
And people Rejoice to go to to see the Wonder and the glory of the city, which of the next thing that David rejoices at besides interest to which two tribes go up. The tribes of the Lord has decreed is route to give thanks to the name of the Lord Meridian David's time that the tribes with most secure and they share together open for you for the she's at the Ravine dissension between the stripe amongst the bee Friendly Ice Jude in front of the north against the south at smaller unit to a smaller unit has been able to bring those together the first true king of Israel the one who guarded appointed official took Souls place and how the Lord prepares him. Full. And he rejoices that all those from the different tribes are coming up to in that it's a good idea of what the church is like that those transmission that one meeting is different tribe with a different cultures have different ideas and different way of doing things. They would meet you there on unit as the truth. I'm proper people of God and this is what he's so amazing. So important a very sweet the three major feces ship appointed behind god with designed to encourage them to show the way in which this is so important and so that that should be the case and in the dress we read That's Robinswood. The front of the house of David Dean a proper judgment and Justice exercise amongst the various tribes in the nation of Israel prior to David it became much more full book was structured during the time of David and that proper Justice was able to be exercised out very special tribunal that anyone who had problems and difficulties or anyone who was treated unjustly. They might come and deal with that David was able to I ate and help in no situation is true that is in the True Church of Christ that proper Justice is saying that we know the Justice League Gods just as he works out his purposes. He works out his I need our ranks and go in and leave in the right and the proper Why and then in the Lost make a section of us is 629 David brings to us his particular. He praised six pray for the Peace of Jerusalem May they be secure who love you pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. David was thinking particularly of that City. That's we apply that we're not thinking of a particular City buildings that are being built in is just one particular price in the world.

We have been Quiet Riot some profit in what we are doing at this particular time and it's not going to destroy the church and the church will continue throughout all that time. It is not going to be like down and helping that sure which leads to the next thing that to David said Peace be within your walls and security within your child. It was a very secure place has many many years are the city actually fell but it was Secure and that's true of the church. We have those wolves. Rayshun the foundation that is our Lord Jesus Christ. We have that glorious how we read. Our God is a strong tower and he is protective he is keeping he is watching over the church and he is in not even us to rejoice in security and then that knowledge that he has given for my brothers and I will say peace be within you is praying for individual is praying for each other and how important this is for us that we pray one for another and we want to see each other for some weeks probably but we can still remember each other we can still pray for each other when you get a joke. And we can bring those prayers before the Lord and God only can bring to his church and God and that open out of Walt the church is invest 9 for the sake of the house of the Lord Our God. I will seek your good. It's not a building. We're not looking to keep a building. We're not looking to preserve ability. We're looking to preserve the true house of the Lord his people his church his body. I bet it's reason David said I will seek your good for the same reason you and I must seek the goodness of God. We must take the power of God. We receive the Salvation the strength of the sovereignty and you'll 19 it all God that we might not know that help we might know that strength we might rejoice in a particular way that in the knowledge that God indeed is with somebody.
We might pray for the shoot true security of the Lord's house, but he will keep he will last.
