I am sitting at my computer, having little options of other things to do at the moment. There is a construction crew working on my house, and while removing a tree, they removed my cable as well. So I figured I'd start up a thread about the Father's house, and see where it's been, and where it is going.

John 2:18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
Messiah spoke of the Temple of his body being raised up in three days. He said that he himself would do so. Many will say that he was speaking of the resurrection of his physical body, not his spiritual body. This is because of vs 22, which simply says, "they believed him when he rose from the dead."
Acts 13:30 But YHWY raised him from the dead:
It is however rather cleary quoted in many instances that the Father raised Messiah from the dead, not Messiah. John 14:28 - My Father is greater than I.

By now, many will be quick to point out Matthew 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.
The "gates of hell" shall not prevail. Why 'gates' and not just hell (grave)?
Psalms 9:13 Have mercy upon me, O YHWY ; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
Here is a quote though using gates in which one is saved from death. The Church then also, can be saved from death.
Was that in fact what Messiah was saying? That the Church will be reared from the grave? That the gates of hell would not prevail?

Let's also remember that if anyone is trusting man's work, 'The Church Father's' thoughts, that indeed if they were in apostacy, they became the Father of Lies. Anywho, why would they admit they were apart of the apostacy?
