“Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” These words were spoken more than 2,000 years ago by the MASTER, our MESSIAH, YAHUSHA, CHRIST JESUS…It was misunderstood then that HIS WORDS pertained to Herod’s Temple in Jerusalem…a physical structure…splendidly beautiful…the majestic centerpoint of Worship at the time. In actuality, HE made reference to HIS resurrected Body…both then …and now…2,000 years later or 2 days later–on the threshold of the third day…for with the Lord, YAHUAH, a day is as a 1,000 years…and a thousand years is as one day. Psalms 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8 Also, let us consider, Hosea 6:2…”After two days will HE revive us; and on the third day HE will raise us up, and we shall live in HIS sight.” And 1 Corinthians 6:19, “Do you not know that you are the Temple of GOD and GOD’s Spirit dwells in you” …So at a time which Scripture mandates as a time of preparing the Throne of our hearts for the Second Coming of our KING, there are those now as there were then, whose focus is on things of the “outer court” …because like Herod’s Temple, the Holy of Holies of their heart either is void and empty or is veiled in deception… as their hope is placed in that which is false. However, Scripture reveals to us; if we have been born again of HIS Holy Spirit and HIS WORD, then are we members of HIS resurrected Body…and therein lies our Salvation…in a Building NOT made with hands!!!
“you, yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be cohanim (priests), set apart for Elohim, God to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to Him through YAHUSHA, the Messiah (Jesus, the Christ).” “And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the Covenant in whom you delight. Behold He is coming, says the YAHUAH of hosts.” …Yes !!! Soon and very soon…He is coming again !!! And we say, Come King YAHUSHA, Come !!!
Isaiah 6:1 “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and HIS train filled the temple.”
…it was an occasion which caused Isaiah to see beyond the physical realm and receive a revelation of YAHUAH and HIS majesty, HIS sovereignty, HIS holiness and our absolute need for HIM and HIS gracious mercy which He showed us when He saw fit to cleanse us from sin, iniquity and unrighteousness that we may stand in HIS presence…and any revelation of the Master is a revealing of HIMSELF unto us with the purpose of calling us into a closer relationship with HIM.
We respond to HIS calling when we recognize our absolute need for HIM and thereby call upon HIS NAME so as to partake of HIS divine NATURE and possess HIS promises; that we may be made whole, complete, nothing missing, nothing broken…the Shalom of Elohim, GOD…the Peace of Elohim, GOD…the Holiness of Elohim, GOD, the Restoration of Elohim, GOD in the making…all because of the shed Blood of the LAMB of Elohim, GOD who took upon HIMSELF the wrath of Elohim, GOD that was actually due us because sin had entered the world through Adam…
so for those of us who escape the pride of facing YAHUAH, our Elohim each on his own for sin; HE has become our Blood Sacrifice for sin before Elohim, GOD and we with hearts of humility receive the provision of grace which empowers us to live our lives as living sacrifices because with our lives we say to the ONE who gave HIS all to us, “not my will, but YOUR will be done” in my life…because we are confident that HE who did not withhold the great and precious sacrifice of HIS sinless SON, what good thing would HE withhold from them who by the power of HIS SPIRIT walk uprightly…though we endure trials and tribulution, though we encounter persecution, which seems as if it were an army surrounding us, because we know HIM to be faithful, our hearts shall not fear…for in HIM we are confident…in HIM we have placed our trust and our desire…
And furthermore, David said it this way, “The LORD, YAHUAH is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD, YAHUAH is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ….One thing have I desired of the LORD, YAHUAH and , that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD, YAHUAH all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the LORD, YAHUAH; and to enquire in HIS Temple. For in the time of trouble, HE shall hide me in HIS pavilion; in the secret of HIS tabernacle shall HE hide me; HE shall set me up upon a rock.” Psalm 27:4-5
Hallelujah and Amen !!!
