The Latter House

How does the Latter House compare to the Former? Let's examine.


Ezr 3:12 But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the FIRST <07223> HOUSE <01004>, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy:

Hag 2:3 Who is left among you that saw this HOUSE <01004> in her FIRST <07223> glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?

2Ch 7:1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the HOUSE.


Jer 7:30 For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD: they have set their abominations in the HOUSE which is called by my name, to POLLUTE it.

Eze 44:7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my HOUSE, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.

Ps 49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the GLORY of his HOUSE is increased;

Hab 2:12 Woe to him that buildeth a TOWN with blood, and stablisheth a CITY by iniquity!


Pr 15:25 The LORD will destroy the HOUSE of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.

Mt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that HOUSE; and it fell: and great was the FALL OF IT.

Lu 21:5 And as some spake of the TEMPLE, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

Lu 21:6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall NOT BE LEFT one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


Hag 2:9 The glory of this latter HOUSE <01004> shall be greater than of the FORMER <07223>, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a NEW EARTH: and THE FORMER shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Isa 66:22 For as the new heavens and the NEW EARTH, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

Jer 33:11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the HOUSE <01004> of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at THE FIRST <07223>, saith the LORD.

Hag 2:7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this HOUSE with GLORY, saith the LORD of hosts.

Zec 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the GLORY of the HOUSE OF DAVID and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do NOT magnify themselves against Judah.

Re 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, NEW JERUSALEM, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.


God appears to be relating the House to the Temple or Kingdom of God. It was typified by the Temple that Solomon (Christ) built. Then Satan took his seat in that temple to pollute it. Therefore God destroyed the FIRST OR FORMER HOUSE and replace it with a more Glorious LATTER HOUSE (New Jerusalem).
