God's Chief Building Material

And the elders of the Jews were successful in building through the prophesying of...Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they finished building according to the command of the God of Israel” (Ezra 6:14).

The key building material is found at the heart of Zechariah’s prophecy: truth.

“Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth...they shall be My people, and I will be their God in truth...these are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one truth’” (Zechariah 8:3,8,16,19).

God’s main building material for Jerusalem after the Babylonian Exile is still the main building material for the Church in the New Covenant: “...I write so that you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth(1 Timothy 3:15).

Beloved Church, build on the absolute, timeless, and infinitely valuable truth of the Word of God!
