The New Temple

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16

To understand how we are the “New Temple” you must first understand the Old Temple. Before Christ, the Temple was the only place where Gods presence was on Earth. If you wanted to be in the presence of God you needed to come to The Temple.

The Temple was were the High Priests lived and were anointed to make intercession for you. The Temple was the only place where you could make atonement for your sins, which the sacrifice had to be performed by the High Priest

So now fast forward to the New Covenant. When Christ became your High Priest and became the final atonement for your sins. The veil was torn in the Temple and now the presence of God lives inside every Born Again believer in Christ.

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

When Jesus made this statement, the religious leaders thought he was talking about the physical Temple. However Jesus was talking about his physical body, the New Temple of God. Jesus was talking about his crucifixion and resurrection, being raised up in 3 days!

Now when you accept Christ into your heart, repent of your sins, you become Born Again. The Holy Spirit lives inside of you and your body becomes the New Temple of God.

If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. 1 Corinthians 3:17

The New Temple of God is a Holy Temple! Meaning keep your body free from sin, sexual immorality, drugs, and alcohol. Keep your Temple Holy because God is Holy, don’t allow your Temple to become desecrated by evil.

God the Holy Spirit lives inside of you, to empower you to flee from sin in Jesus name Amen!

 

You Are Gods Temple

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16

When Jesus said he was going to raise the temple up in 3 days, everyone thought he was crazy. That’s because they thought he was talking about the physical temple but what he really was referring to was the resurrection. We are the temple of God, you are sacred washed by the blood of Christ.

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. 1 Corinthians 3:17

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. Our God is a just God, no crime will go unpunished. Those who are persecuting Christians and children will receive the wrath of God on judgement day.

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. 1 Corinthians 3:18

Professing themselves to be wise they became fools, nobody can truly comprehend the greatness of God. Stop pretending you know all the answers, because nobody does. Humility is the beginning of wisdom. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, well maybe that old dog needs to be reborn.

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

When Jesus said this he shocked an entire nation, they hated and feared him, because they didn’t understand what he was saying. Don’t lean on your own understanding, trust in God he has a bigger plan.

Thru Jesus we are the temple of God, we have been reborn and transformed. It’s important your treat yourself this way and keep it holy. You are a reflection of Christ, let the world see him thru you in Jesus name Amen
