"LET'S BUILD A HOUSE OF PRAYER!" - TERMITES
DELIVERED BY ELDER WALLACE
BROOKS ON SUNDAY, 26 JANUARY 2003
building a house, you've got to have a foundation. And you just don't
want any kind of foundation when you're building your house. You're
looking for something that's going to stand. "On Christ the solid
rock I stand! All other ground is sinking sand." You're going to
need a frame. Not only should it have a frame, Its going to need to
have some walls. You don't want anyone to look inside your house at
any other time with no privacy. In building a house of prayer, we can't
stay on the same level. In building a house, we've got to have a roof.
As much as we love the sunshine, when it rains, we don't want to get
wet or rained on. We know that we need some protection. I don't care
how beautiful the house is, there is something that can destroy it.
You know what that is? Termites. They
are little tiny creatures. How is it that something so small could do
so much damage? Unchecked, termites will destroy a house! Many people
are working to build the house of prayer, but in all their efforts somebody
is trying to destroy it. And I'm sad to say that there are some termites
in the house. We've got a Pastor that's building here in Atlanta, but
we've got some termites who are trying to eat away at what he is building.
To build this house, we must have the
foundation of a spiritual mind. We need a frame because we need to stick
together. We need some walls and a roof because we need to be protected.
What do the walls represent? The walls symbolize our faith in God. If
our walls are strong, then it [the house] won't come down. We need some
steps because we are gonna have to go to a higher level because we can't
stay where we are [on the same level].
Don't let the termites hinder you from
doing the Lord's work. If we are gonna build a House of Prayer, we are
not talking about a physical house, we are talking about a spiritual
one and the foundation of such a house must be a spiritual mind.
