Building the House
The house must be built by the Lord
Psalm 127:1 A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
How the Lord builds the house
As we continually renew our mind, each part of our life is exposed by the Holy Spirit and Jesus (the Son) washes it clean. Once cleaned, each sanctified part of our life is incorporated into the permanent structure of our everlasting spiritual house.
Look at the way the Israelites built their houses; the Bible is amazing.

The tent was constructed of woven goat hair. Over time the sun bleaches and weakens the goat hair necessitating their continual replacement. Each year the women make a new panel, approximately 3 feet wide and the length of the tent. The old panel is removed (being recycled into a wall or floor) and the new strip is added to the tent. Since the tent is only replaced one small piece at a time the tent essentially lasts forever.(eng: beam – a component of construction with an exchange for the m and n; between – with the t added)
