Where is the Church Located

In light of what I have been reading about the destruction of “church Buildings” today’s lesson is brought to you from Psalms 11:1-7 “In the Lord I put my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain? For,lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make read their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snare, fire and brimestone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portio of their cup. For the righteous Lord leth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.”
Men today as in the past may come through and destroy buildings with the status of “church” attached to them. They may burn them down, tear them apart or whatever they feel is necessary to destory someone’s faith. However, a faithful person understands that God does not dwell in a building. He dwells in the hearts of the faithful. This is just another trick of the devil who is walking to and fro seeking those whom he may devour. He is seeking those he might claim as his own. He doesn’t go after those he already owns, he goes after those who are faithful to God. We as a nation are playing right into the hands of the Devil. We have abandoned our post as the faithful and the Devil has walked in – They can destroy every church building around, tear down every “religous” icon- but for those of us who are faithful, they can never tear down the in dwelling of God. Bottom line it matters not what “color” Christ was as a human. What matters is he was sent to earth, from his father to die for our sins. He paid the ultimate price for us. He did it willingly- when we as people understand that, the building, the icon and whatever else man has placed in place does not matter. A Building is not necessary in order to worship God. While having a building is nice for the fellowship and the coming together, it is not necessary. What is necessary is the indwelling of God, the coming together of each other whether it is in a home or a parking lot. God has a plan –
