Default Re: House of God

Aloha Scott,

In regards to your comments - "House of God".

Genesis 28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

The term "house of God" in the entire Old Testament and in all of the Gospels is always in reference to a "PLACE" {The "PLACE" where Jacob was; The Tabernacle; or the Temple}. The term "house of God" used only in 1Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 10:21; and 1Peter 4:17 are all in reference to a "PEOPLE" - NOT A "PLACE"!

There is NO CONFUSION - If you "rightly divide the word of truth".

It appears to me that you are either ignoring everything that I have said on this subject or you can't understand what was said.

The "church" (New Testament) was NOT in existence until AFTER the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. I would advise you to avoid "Speculation" when it comes to doctrine. Speculation, conjecture, hypothesis, hunches, suppositions, surmises, theories and "guesswork" have NO PART in the study of the Bible!

As I said - I will have more to say on this subject shortly.
