What Kind of House Will You Build for Me?

Heaven is my throne, the earth is my footstool, What kind of house will you build for me? Says the Lord.Or where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things?Acts 7:49 He goes on to call the the people stiff-necked. People who resist the Holy Spirit. I looked up ‘rest’ in Strong’s and the word ‘rest’ here in this verse is different than many others listed in Strong’s.It primarily means peace, quietness, prosperity. It does appear in most of the books in the New Testament.These are some other meanings: harmonious relationships between men, between nations, friendliness, quietness order in the church and harmonized relationships between God and man-from root word eiro (Gk).It seems clear to me that God expects us to maintain peaceful relationships with everyone including ourselves. The peace that we need to operate in is only found by His Holy Spirit. When we resist the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we break ourselves away from the only peace that man is able to uphold-that of the Holy Spirit….without that peace we wind up falling on our own fleshly desires, then we do not have the ability to maintain peace with others.
