The Rebuilding of the Old Testament Temple
Many are looking to Jerusalem for the rebuilding of the Old Testament temple and the reinstating of sacrifice. Multitudes of Christians are being deceived by such teachings. God is not interested in building the temple in Jerusalem. The real Temple that’s being built today is in the spirit. We are the temple of the Living God and today God is dwelling within us. Why would we look to Jerusalem in the natural when what is being built is a spiritual temple? Those who are looking for outward signs may very well miss what is being done in the Spirit.
First thing to be a Priest then, is to carry the presence of God. How many Christians do you know today, that you could actually say was a carrier of the presence of God that when you enter in their presence and by you being with them you could sense that presence? I have met a few people like that. I met a lady in Boston once that when you entered her house you entered the presence. I knew another Lady in California that carried such a divine presence. There are a multitude of folks today who carry this presence and will cause many to turn from darkness into the marvelous light.
This is the year 2012 when many changes are taking place and we are about to enter the reality of the Kingdom of God being manifested on earth.
Ephesians 4:24 Put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
The above verse is the answer to all of our problems. The question is, how do we do it? I tried for years to put off the old man with his corruption and former way of living. One day I realized all I needed to do is believe in the truth of my being. I am a son of God who has left the realms of glory and was lowered in this dense physical world. Once I realized that I began to confess the truth of my being and seek God every day to reveal Christ in me. I discovered that I was living in a false identity thinking I was a human being and separated and alienated from God because of my sin. Now I rejoice in my spiritual nature and when I make a mistake or miss God I just realize I need more unveiling to the truth of my being. We are all beginning to realize the truth of who we are. There is a mighty shaking taking place in the world today and very soon we will see the Spirit move in a marvelous way. The sons of God are waking up and are beginning to preach the gospel of reconciliation.
We can all live out of presence of God. It’s not for a selected few. It’s not just for the 5 fold ministry, it is for the Priesthood. And the Priesthood includes every believer. “That ye put off concerning the former manner of living the old man, which is corrupt according to deceitful lusts; and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which according to God, is created in righteousness and real or true holiness”.
We can all put on this new man by the renewing of our mind. The Apostle Paul tells us that “We have the mind of Christ.” We renew our minds by believing and speaking the truth rather than the lie. We are a new creation. We have been chosen before the foundation of the world. We have been predestinated to be conformed to His image. All sin has been dwelt with and we have been delivered from the power of darkness into the glorious kingdom of the son.
May we all meditate on the truth and speak the truth until we stand as the One New Man upon the earth.
