  Study Tools

Psalm 127:1 Except the Lord Build the House

1. THE BUILDING - 1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

(a) The Vanity Here 1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it

i. Working is Vain - they labour in vain - Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

ii. Watching is Vain - except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts

iii. Worrying is Vain 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

Matt 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

iv. Witnessing is Vain

3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Matt 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Joshua 7:13 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

(b) The Victory Here - 1 Except the LORD Zech 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

I The SINNER IS EXPOSED {John 16:7-11} II The SAVIOUR IS EXALTED {John 16:14} He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. III That SALVATION IS EXPERIENCED {JOHN 3:6} That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

IV That SERVICE IS EMPOWERED Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

V That SAINTS ARE ENCOURAGED {ACTS 2:4} And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. VI That SCRIPTURES ARE EXPLAINED {1 Cor 2: 12} Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God

VII That SOLITUDE IS ERASED {John 14:16} And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

2. THE BUILDER

Heb 3:4; For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Heb 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
