Verse:

Ezek. 43:10-11 “You, O son of man, describe the house to the house of Israel, that they may feel humiliated because of their iniquities, and let them measure the pattern…. Make known to them the design of the house, the arrangement, its exits, its entrances, its whole design, and all its statutes-indeed its whole design and all its laws; and write them down in their sight, that they may keep its whole design and all its statutes, and do them.”

Excerpts:

In addition to seeing the vision of God’s building, we also need to see what the building is in practicality. The building is the test of every kind of spirituality. We ourselves are not the standard by which our spirituality is tested for its genuineness. Rather, we must put our spirituality on the doorstep of the building to be tested. You may be very spiritual, but you may be too individualistic. The individualistic spirituality is not the genuine one. The genuine, real spirituality must be for the building. If someone considers that he is spiritual, yet he is independent, individualistic, and isolated from the Body, his spirituality is a deception…. If we can have the building up, then to be proud or humble does not matter. We do not want to be praised by others for our humility yet damage the building with it.

Today… is the age for God’s building. The building of God is our standard and test. We need to test ourselves not concerning right or wrong but by how much we have been built up. This is the test, and it is also the solution for all of our problems and the answer to all of our questions. How much have we been related to our dear brothers and sisters? How much are we one with them in the spirit in love, life, and reality? Satan hates this oneness and harmony. He endeavors to do whatever he can to damage the oneness. Once we lose this oneness, we lose our impact. Our impact is in the oneness of the building. When we are truly one, in harmony, and built up together as one Body, we have a real impact.

We need to see the vision of God’s building, and we need to test our life, work, move, motive, intention, desire, and point of view by the building up of the Body. If we apply the building as the test, we will be fully and thoroughly revolutionized, and we will have a real turn. (The Vision, Practice, and Building Up of the Church as the Body of Christ, chap. 10)
