There has been a lot of chatter via various TV and radio ministries concerning the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem! Oh yes, they are quite certain that a 3rd temple made of brick-n-mortar is soon to be constructed!

.

As a matter of fact, it is said that the stones of its walls are already being hewed and squared, to be put in place at the appointed hour! And of course, the furnishings of that temple are also rumored to be already constructed, and ready to be placed in that temple, once it is constructed.

A TEMPLE ALREADY THERE!

The only problem with all this is, that somebody else has already placed their own sacred building on that very site!

.

Yes, another religion has moved in, and there would have to be some great conflict to even think of rebuilding the 3rd Jewish Temple on that spot!

But really, is God wanting another brick-n-mortar structure?

.

Is that the kind of temple that God desires to rebuild?

“THE TEMPLE OF HIS BODY!”

.

Listen to Jesus…“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt Thou rear it up in three days? But He spake of the temple of His body.” John 2:19-21

.

Once again, the apostate church-world has misunderstood the spiritual nature of the Bible, looking for another earthly temple to be rebuilt. But what they do not understand is that these buildings were used by God to be allegorical portraits of spiritual truths…

NO BRICK-N-MORTAR STRUCTURES

http://www.wikiart.org/en/gustave-dore/the-new-jerusalem

.

Listen again… “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband…”And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” Revelation 21:2, 22

.

The New Jerusalem spoken of here is a symbol of God and His church. And there is no temple in it because, “God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it!”

A HOUSE & THRONE FOREVER!

.

Listen, as God foretells of this everlasting temple… “He (Christ) shall build an house for My name, and I will stablish the throne of His kingdom for ever. I will be His father, and He shall be my Son. And Thine house and Thy kingdom shall be established for ever before Thee: Thy throne shall be established for ever. 2nd Samuel 7:13, 14, 16

.

The only temple that God is concerned with at this point in time is an everlasting temple…

“YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD!”

Listen again…“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” 1st Corinthians 3:16, 17

.

Here is the 3rd temple of God! God’s people! And the Word of God and the Holy Spirit are the mortar that will hold this temple together throughout the ceaseless ages!

SQUARING & HEWING

.

Now, for us to become the living stones in that temple requires that we must be hewed http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg& squared. This process is what the Bible calls, the purification of the heart…

.

Listen… “And the king commanded, and they brought great stones, costly stones, and hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house. And Solomon’s builders and Hiram’s builders did hew them, and the stone-squarers: so they prepared timber and stones to build the house.” 1st Kings 5:17, 18

Oh yes, this appears to be speaking of a literal brick-n-mortar temple. But the Bible is a spiritual book and must be understood spiritually, even though these Bible stories are literal and historical events which truly happened in the past.

HEWED & SQUARED BY JUDGMENT & RIGHTEOUSNESS!

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:6tag_250316-124351.jpg

But the Bible says concerning Christ… “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet…” Isaiah 28:16, 17

.

Here is revealed what makes this spiritual temple building straight and true: Judgment and righteousness!

.Most Holy Place - Signs Of Heaven

Now that we are nearing the end, it is safe to assume that this temple of God is now almost complete. Every true worshiper of God throughout the church era has been carefully hewed into a precious living stone, to be fitted together to make this wonderful and beautiful spiritual temple of God! And in the days to come, God will silently fit these living stones together to make that glorious 3rd temple which was promised long ago!

THE ARK IN THE HEAVENS

Two Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations

.

So what importance to us is all this information? Well, if a person goes out at night, beginning in April (earlier in southern-most latitudes, and later in northern-most), in the pre-dawn hour, they just might locate the constellation commonly referred to as the  Sagittarius Constellation  . It is located in the southern sky. (Each night it appears a little earlier, slowly inching westward, through the summer, until it finally disappears below the western horizon in November.)

Ark of the Covenant Constellation

.

At first, it simply appears as two twin birds flying westward. But if you look once again, it just might appear as a long box-like figure, with one star on the right, as you face it, and two stars on the left. The box, of course would be the Ark, and the stars on either side would represent angels, which are sometimes referred to as stars in the Bible (for instance, “the seven stars are the angels…” Revelation 1:20). To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia, in which the editor of this site has sketched in this Sagittarius Constellation, to show how God created it to appear.
