Just a reminder that if you went to a meeting of Bible believing Christians in a building or home, you did not “go to church”. You ARE the church.
The “house of God” in Psalm 122:1 is a reference to the Temple in Jerusalem (and the Tabernacle, before Solomon’s Temple was built) which was rebuilt after the Babylonian Captivity and known as Herod’s Temple by the time Jesus began his ministry.
This “house of God” was nullified whenever Jesus was Crucified and rose again. The Temple veil was rent (Matthew 27:51) in 32 AD and no sacrifice was legitimate after that point. The Roman General Titus destroyed the remaining structure, down to the ground, in 70 AD.
Since the time of Pentecost, the “house of God” has been the individual Christian. Upon repenting toward God with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 20:21), trusting in the death, burial and resurrection for eternal salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), the Spirit of God indwells the believer (Colossians 1:27).
“… for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. ” (2 Corinthians 6:16)
We are to test everything (1 John 4:1) and see if internet memes are Biblical, just as the Bereans (Acts 17:11). There are a LOT of these going around that are not “sound doctrine”.
Below Is False Application Of That Text:
“But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1)
