Psalm 127 The Church's One Foundation

1. A Divinely Founded Home

No Working in Vain 1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

(a) David's Motto Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

(b) Solomon's Mission Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

(c) Hezekiah's Mandate Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: (On rebuilding the Temple)

(d) Bible's Mantra Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

1 Cor 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

2. A Divinely Fortified Home

No Watching in Vain 1 except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

The people of Jerusalem believed their city, sheltered by mountains, to be invincible.

(a) The Canaanites couldn't take it.

(b) The Egyptians couldn't take it.

(c) The Mighty Assyrians were now at the gate (A World Power)

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

3. A Divinely Furnished Home

No Worrying in 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.

Worry is an exacting thing: It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late - it doesn't help

It is an excruciating thing: "It is vain... to eat the bread of sorrows."

It is an exhausting thing: "For so He giveth His beloved sleep." The solution is in the Lord.

4. A Divinely Favoured Home

No Witnessing in Vain 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Acts 2 v 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people.And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

He blessed them with :-

1. His Peace 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

2. His Power - 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

3. His Presence - 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 4. His Protection 47 And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

THE CHURCH WAS:- A. UNIFIED: 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

B. MAGNIFIED: 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. C. MULTIPLIED: 47 And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Because Of --Obedience to His Word, Obedience to His Will, Obedience to His Way
