seventy thousand men to bear
burdens, eighty thousand to quarry

Hiram king of Tyre, saying: As you
have dealt with David my father,

with me.

2Ch 2:4 - Behold, I am building a temple
for the name of the LORD my God, to
dedicate it to Him, to burn before Him
sweet incense, for the continual showbread,
for the burnt offerings morning and evening,
on the Sabbaths, on the New Moons, and on
the set feasts of the LORD our God. This is
an ordinance forever to Israel.

build will be great, for our God is
greater than all gods.

If We Build It
2Ch 5:1- So all the work that Solomon
had done for the house of the LORD

the treasuries of the house of God.

sounding with trumpets

"For He is good, For His mercy endures forever,"
that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled
with a cloud,

If We Build It

If We Build It
Our efforts should be directed at
building for Him and not for them!
If you build for Him youll get
them; but getting them is no
guarantee youll get Him!

If We Build It
Were not just building buildings,
were creating an environment.

If We Build It
There are times we find ourselves
in our own personal corn fields
and hear these haunting words.

If We Build It
This is Gods admonition to do
something great.
The key is to see the ball field in
the corn field!

If We Build It
The corn field was his money
He had to sacrifice potential profit
in order to obey the voice
encouraging us to build.

If We Build It
1) We Build A Place For His
2Ch 2:1- Then Solomon
determined to build a temple for
the name of the LORD

If We Build It
Reputation, fame, glory

If We Build It
God doesnt put His name on a
place until He is satisfied with its
That would be like signing a
contract without reading the

If We Build It
How do we build an environment
that is welcoming to God?

If We Build It
Pre-service preparation is critical!
Just as you use care in choosing
your wardrobe and accessories,
exercise care in choosing your
mindset and mentality

If We Build It
Our ritual should include:

If We Build It
Our presentation is important. One
of the best ways to present
ourselves to God appropriately is
to be on time. Our timeliness
shows God we mean business with

2) We Set the Conditions For His

If We Build It
Luk 5:17 - Now it happened on a
certain day, as He was teaching, that
there were Pharisees and teachers of
the law sitting by, who had come out
of every town of Galilee, Judea, and
Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord
was present to heal them.

If We Build It
I want this place to be as
conducive to Gods power as
a childcare center is to germs
and sickness!

If We Build It
An atmosphere of faith sets the
atmosphere for God to be Himself!
When God is able to be Himself,
miracles happen

If We Build It
When God is Himself, people are
challenged to be their best selves.

If We Build It
Mar 6:5 - Now He could do no
mighty work there, except that He
laid His hands on a few sick people
and healed them.
Mar 6:6 And He marveled
because of their unbelief...

If We Build It
We set the atmosphere with praise.
The difference between a song and
a praise is the direction and intent
of your words.

If We Build It
Have you ever had one of those
what am I singing moments?
stop, wait a minute, fill my cup
put some liquor in it.

If We Build It
When we create a God atmosphere,
the miraculous will be catching.
Youll touch a door handle and receive
the anointing. Youll sit in a chair get
healed. Youll hear a hallelujah and
the sound waves will enter your ear
canal and cause an infusion of faith!

If We Build It
When It (the atmosphere and
environment) is built, three
things will happen

decisions that have caused them
to be ostracized from God will

Sound familiar?

If We Build It
If we build it, not only will The
Father come, but fathers will

If We Build It
3) Those who have not had an
experience with God will come
from wherever they are to
experience Him!

If We Build It
When those who have never known
God learn that families are being
restored and people are being
forgiven they will come from
everywhere to be a part of it!

If We Build It
If we dont build it, neither He nor
they will have a place to which to
