‘Go and say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord,” Are you the one who should build Me a house to dwell in? For I have not dwelt in a house since the day I brought up the sons of Israel from Egypt, even to this day; but I have been moving about in a tent, even in a tabernacle. “Wherever I have gone with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with one of the tribes of Israel, which I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, ‘Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?,'”‘ 2 Samuel 7:4-7.
“Those who worship Me in spirit and in truth know me a I AM. Many know about Me, but they don’t know Me personally.
Some have read and studied about Me. They have gone to seminaries and universities to understand me better. But you cannot understand Me in this way. You can read all of the books in the world. You can delve into ancient manuscripts. You can study the lives of the early church fathers. But studying, and reading all of this, will not bring you closer to Me.
For I AM beyond the page. I reign in the hearts of men and women who sit at My feet to learn of me. You can learn about me through those who teach and preach, but you will not know me as I AM until you have sat at My feet.
Why must you elevate certain men in the pulpit? For they only speak of Me. And why do you honor the building instead of Me, says the Lord? I do not reside in your buildings. Do you think that Isaiah or Jeremiah had to go to a building to find Me? Do you think that Nathan or Malachi found Me in your palaces of stone?
The wind blows as it would, and so, my spirit blows as it would. And I will come to you in the night watches. I will come to you even when you are not seeking Me. For I reside with My Father, and yet we are one. Don’t seek me in a building. Seek me as I AM, beyond time and space.”
