We have all heard the standard teaching that the Jewish temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt so the Jews can begin having daily sacrifice once more…this, I believe may very well be a red herring.
“The customary teaching on this, which has been the same as most Bible prophecy students, has been that since the daily sacrifice is stopped by the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27; 8:11), it must have been resumed some time previously. That’s a step-by-step logical interpretation. However, just because that’s the way it’s been interpreted by most Bible students, including Scofield and a lot of others, it does not mean that it’s necessarily going to happen that way! That is simply a theory.” (The Daily Sacrifice…ML#2092)
The Apostle Peter said that the human body is a spiritual temple built with living stones. You’re a living stone! So today’s Temple, where true worship is held, is the human heart. We’re to worship, in this case, right in His Holy Temple, because we are His Temple! 1Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
While the ever-watchful eschatologist eyes the Temple Mount in Jerusalem searching for signs of the Third Jewish Temple emerging from the distant past –for thousands of years…long before the 2020 vaccine rollout designed to destroy the physical temple of the human body– the Devil and his ilk have been busily destroying worship within that true temple of the Holy Ghost.
In 2 Thessalonians 2:3 Paul warned that a great falling away in the faith would occur before the Antichrist would be revealed.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Therefore the first blow the Devil landed on the newly enlightened church of living stones was getting them to believe they must return to worship in a physical temple, thus nullifying the commandment Jesus gave to the Samaritan women in John 4:23, 24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Approximately two hundred years after Jesus fulfilled and finished the “old law” of temple worship, the building of church buildings commenced and worship within a physical house became “law” once more. True worship and communion with the Holy Spirit within the temple of the heart was replaced by pastors and priests who went as far as declaring that not attending “church service” spelt hellfire. Many Christians favored this tradition anyway because laboring in daily sacrifice by seeking the voice of the Holy Spirit in prayer and supplication was too taxing on the desires of their flesh. Goal number one was achieved: the vital link between the spirit of God and man was weakened. The Pimp then began suffocating his faithless subjects under a flood of worldliness and the Laodicean Church bloomed. Revelation 3:14 -17: And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; …I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
“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.”
Praise Me for everything in your life –the good and the bad, the pretty and the ugly, the joyous and the sad– and you will experience peace and contentment that transcends the boundaries of the earth or flesh.
For thousands of years, the Devil has remained steadfast, his eye on one goal: worship of Himself. If the people are the true temple, (even those Laodiceans who pretend to be the temple of God) and if he is going to capture their faith & their worship, he is going to have to sit in their temple!–A spiritual temple. If that’s true, then we don’t even have to wait for the Jews to rebuild the old temple, although they could still do it. And the Lord may still allow them to do it, not as a sign of warning but as a very bitter lesson. But it would be good to remember that the Christian faith does not orbit a long dead religion in Jerusalem which met its demise two thousand years ago at the hand of God Himself. John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
Matthew 24:1, 2 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.
True Christianity is a religion of the Spirit, where worship is in the heart, and that is exactly what the Devil wants, worship from the heart, just as Jesus wants worship from the heart. The unsaved, unbelieving world are not the Devil’s target, as they already worship the things of this world and have taken the injection of compliance without a second thought. Many Laodicean Christians have taken the lethal injection also, because their riches, wealth and compromised lifestyles have destroyed any thought of living a life of faith. All the ensamples set in the Bible by men like Moses, Gideon, Elijah and others mean nothing to these “in name only” Christians. It is not those whom these devils are after, beloved. It is you. If at this point in time, you cannot see this worldwide vaccination and the accompanying vaccination certificate as being somehow related to the Mark of the Beast, you would do well to remember that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, and you are not your own (1Corinthians 6:19). You are the temple of the living God‚ and when you decide to take part in a drug test where you have your body subjected to some sort of unknown chemicals that will have who-knows-what sort of effect on you, you’re doing it to the Lord! You could well be tearing down His handiwork, His worker, His temple!
