Moreover, because I have set my affection on the house of my God, I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house (1 Chronicles 29:3).

We are under the command of the Lord to be used in His end-time harvest of souls. His Kingdom will rule over all. I would like to share with you some pertinent scripture verses that should help you in understanding the will of the Lord and what He has given us as enabling tools to perform His work.

In 1 Chronicles 29:1, the word of the Lord says, “furthermore King David said to all the assembly: “my son Solomon, whom alone God has chosen, is young and inexperienced; and the work is great, because the temple is not for man but for the Lord God.” Paul the apostle in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 tells us, “or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Paul confirms the same truth that David stated: the temple is for God, not man.  Therefore, we should maintain the attitude that the Lord, Himself, is the owner of the house. When we see this truth clearly, we will conduct our lives with reverence and holy fear. Let us never forget that the Lord is the owner and resident of His house (temple) which we are!
