If a building is called “God’s House” would it be considered holy? If it were truly “God’s House”, then His Spirit would dwell there and yes, it would be “holy”. If a parent tells his child at the kingdom hall that “this is God’s House”, as a JW video already explains to children, wouldn’t they learn to have a reverential awe for that building?
Does God agree with these dedications and the christening of a kingdom hall /assembly hall as His House? I believe JWs cannot fathom what God would think of such a thing, even if it is a building of temporary use. It is as if God is no where to be heard, no where to give His opinion on what man do, although He certainly has through the scriptures. So let’s do it, call it dedicated to God, then sell it off! God will understand our disregarding all scriptures concerning anything built by the hands of men. Acts 7:49-51; 17:24,25
He has a “building”, He has a spiritual dwelling. 1 Pet 2:5,9; Eph 2:20-22; 1 Cor 3:16,17; John 2:19-21 He has made it clear with the advent of His Son that there is only one “temple”/”building” that He accepts as His. It was a major point of Jesus’ coming; earthly structures to house God’s Spirit were to be abolished. He is building His House on the anointed Body of Christ. 1 Cor 3:9 Why would He want any building dedicated to Him that has its source in Satan’s world? James 3:15
This is called spiritual immorality. It is practiced by false prophets – “harlots” who do exactly what they want and still claim to worship God. Rev 13:11,15; 16:13,14; 17:1,15
If JWs were to recognize the importance of God’s “building”, they would not dare dedicate any earthly building to Him. Instead, God’s temple/priesthood is trampled down by such teachings spoken from a Harlot, and supported by her “man of lawlessness”. Matt 24:48-51; 2 Thess 2:1-4; 9-12; Rev 13:1,2,4-7 So, your leaders dedicate buildings to “Jehovah”. They raise the excitement in all in attendance. It is a blessing from God! I would guess just about everyone in such an audience has no idea what the true dedicated House/Temple of God really is, thanks to the GB Harlots.
What God has said about His Son and His “living stones” (1 Pet 2:5,9) apparently means nothing. Jer 4:22 And instead, JWs believe an organization and all of its buildings will lead them into the Kingdom. IT holds primary importance for one's salvation.
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. Rev 13:4-9
