Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. Proverbs 24:3,4
We as believers are spiritual houses built on the foundation of the truth of God's word. In order for the house to be built it must follow the "Divine design" using the wisdom of God which is the fear of the Lord that leads to the discerning of good and evil.
Our houses are established by the knowledge of the Holy One and not the traditions and teachings of men. Knowledge is to know and to know in the Spirit is to receive the revelation of it from the throne of God. When Jesus asked His disciples who men said that He was they didn't know, but Peter received a revelation from God that He was the Christ, the Son of the living God!
Understanding comes from the Holy Spirit who gives us revelation of the scripture of which there is no private interpretation. Many study and become scholars of the word, always learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, only seeing through carnal eyes and not through the eyes of the Spirit which gives way to division, denomination and strife!
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
