Build the House of God

In Ezra Ch. 6, the “house of God” (v.3, 5, 7, 8, 12, 16, 17, 22) was the temple, and it needed to be rebuilt because the Babylonians had destroyed it. Today the house of God is the church. Believers are its “living stones” (1 Peter 2:5 NKJV), and we “are being built together for a dwelling place of God” (Ephesians 2:22 NKJV).
