The style of their home, to some people, is most important. some have saved all of their lives to build a ranch house, others have been waiting for the time to come to build a split-level home. Then there are those who want an exotic, secluded hideaway, out of sight of everyone else. Yet there is one who would be satisfied with just a simple apartment.
However, all these homes are man-made and are subject to defects to surface. These defects are such things as faulty wiring, improper foundation, the wrong size floor joists, and variations in dimensions. These defects may cause a catastrophe because they are hazardous.
I want to talk about "A House That Is Made Without Hands." I want give direction to this house that is made without hands. Be it known that the house in which you are now dwelling is filled with defects. Therefore time will necessitate moving out of this house. The house that all of us must move out of is of the earth, earthly, it is already condemned. Job declared that a person (man, human race) born of a woman is of a few days and is full of trouble. My friends, life's struggles, physical ailments, and human failures have a tendency to deteriorate this house.
A House Made Without Hands is our new body. This body is going to be a glorified body. Paul declared this to be the fact. "Moreover, whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified." Romans 8:30 NKJV
Paul is speaking of the resurrected body that God will give to those who are justified. Those who will believe and are justified by their faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ are going to get A House That Is Made Without Hands.
