We see the triangle shape in all these examples of the Church. In certain ones we see some action too. We see an image of something being placed at the top of the triangle. In Psalm 2 we see the King set upon the Holy Hill
In Zechariah 4, we see the headstone brought forth on the Mountain In Revelation 14 we see the Lamb standing on the Mountain
In Psalm 133 we see the anointing ointment on the head and the dew on the mountain, both flowing downwards. In Matthew 8 we see mention of a place to lay the head; and the Lord sleeping in the ship.
All of these instances speak of the same thing. Laying the headstone on the temple is laying the head on the body. The temple is the resting place of the Lord; and the body is the place of rest for the Head. The Lord is the head!
In Psalm 132, David speaking [as a type of Christ] says he will have no rest till he builds a dwelling place for God. Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed
I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids
Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. (Psalms 132:3-5)
And then the Lord responds to his servant identifying the resting place as Mount Zion [a type of the Church].
For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation
This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. (Psalms 132:13-14)
We often speak of the church as the body of Christ or as the House of God. According to these examples the construction of the House [temple] doesn't begin till the foundation is laid. Likewise, the assembly and following growth of the body doesn't begin till the head comes to its resting place. Ephesians 2:21 speaks of the building fitly framed together growing into a holy temple
David never actually built the temple. All he could do is gather the materials. The actual construction didn't begin till after his death, that is after he [a type of Messiah] went to his resting place.
