Spiritual House

A body of Christians (a church), as pervaded by the Spirit and power of God (1Pe 2:5); a term applicable to God’s house: "house of prayer," the temple (Mt 21:13); to heaven: "my Father’s house" (Joh 14:2); to the tabernacle: "Moses .... faithful in all his house" (Heb 3:2); to saints: as "the household of God" (Eph 2:19), and "the temple of the Holy Spirit" (1Co 6:19); hence, any "habitation of God in the spirit" (Eph 2:22) in which His glory dwells and His power and grace are manifest.
