Topic: In the House

IS JESUS IN THE HOUSE?

 

Pastor: John Neal

  I Kings 8: 9-11; St. Mark 2:1

“Nothing was in the Ark except the two tablets of stone which Moses put there at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord.”“And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house.”

 

 Have you ever asked yourself, what is the reason for church? When we have church we want to believe that Jesus is in the house. Too many times, He is not. If He is not, we are not having church we are only having a Social get together. If you want to make sure that Jesus is in the house, you had better take Him with you. Many churches go through their formal service, do all the usual things that we are programmed to do, but would we change anything if Jesus was to walk into the building? Is that not what we want to happen? Are churches so spiritual today that the glory of God, fires the house, so that they cannot minister for all of His glory. Do we allow the spirit of God to move in our services or our services so dull that he is muffled? Jesus lives in the mist of praises. Peter tells us in the book of Acts that the Holy Ghost came upon them with tongues and with fire but in this modern day of Christianity, the fire has been put out and the tongues have ceased. What has happened to the glory of God? How can God speak, if we keep him muzzled? How can churches have a Holy Ghost revival, if Jesus is left out of the house? If Jesus is there, so are the other tongues. They come as a set. They go together like Biscuits and butter or ham and eggs. We are living in modern times now, the computer age, most people feel that we have outgrown these things, that we don’t speak in other tongues as they did in Peter and Paul’s day, that was just for them. But I’ve got news for you, “Jesus said, I change not.” He is still the same today as he was in the days of Peter and Paul’s day. If Peter and Paul spoke in other tongues, then if Jesus is in the house you will speak in other tongues also. Is Jesus in the house? People are not taught or believe in speaking in other tongues, but that does not mean that they do not exist, if people get that feel good feeling when they are singing a song, that’s it, as for as they are concerned. But Jesus is not in the house, unless that feel good feeling comes with other tongues as the spirit of God gives the utterance. People go to church every Sunday and wouldn’t miss, but the sad part is they leave Jesus out. I have hear a lot of people tell me, they went to certain churches, but they didn’t feel anything. It was dry, it was dead, that was because Jesus was left out of the house. Jesus don’t dwell in a wooden frame building today, he dwell in a house not made by hands, if Jesus is in the house, he dwell inside of you. So the next time you go to church you will know that Jesus is in the house, because you bring him with you. Don’t wait for your pastor, or someone else to light the pilot light, because the fire has gone out. Bring the fire with you.
