Raised

Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” John 2:19

This one simple statement from Jesus  brought so much revelation to us. The Religious Leaders thought Jesus was literally threatening to destroy the Holy Temple, but they didn’t realize Jesus was the temple and he was raised after three days to live forevermore.

The body is the temple of God (1 Corinthians 6:19) through the New Covenant of Jesus, we no longer need to visit the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to talk to God. The Holy Spirit dwells in us and we can be with God everywhere, even in the darkest valleys. Jesus literally prophesied about his death and resurrection, but nobody at the time understood him.

But another great revelation that was taught here most people miss, Jesus said that he will raise himself up again.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

As we know God raised Christ from the dead, Jesus is revealing his deity and unity with God the Father in the Trinity. If it wasn’t , Jesus would have said that God would raise it up again, but he revealed his deity as Lord of Lords. Through Christ we can be raised again and have the Holy Spirit dwell in us in Jesus Name Amen!
