God' Abode

The immotal, invincible the only wise God, the Almighty; creator of the heavens and the earth; the King of kings, mighty warrior, the prince of peace, the first and last, the timeless God; whose throne is the heaven, and the earth His footstool... I can go on and on!

I have over the times noticed the priority we have placed on physical structures in the church of God, we have laid so much emphasis on beautifying the physical structure of the church than the real dwelling place of God( our bodies)2 Corinthians 6:16b. “For we are the temple of the living God”!. The bible reminds us that our body is the temple of the living God and must be presented as such.

Before Solomon’s temple, God revealed his glory in the tent or tabernacle which Moses constructed. It was there that God would come, dwell, and meet with his people. “Let them make me a sanctuary,” the Lord spoke to Moses, “that I may dwell in their midst” (Ex. 25:8). It was there that “the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and [there that] the Lord would speak with Moses” (Ex. 33:9). It was there that “the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle” (Ex. 40:34). The tabernacle was where the people of Israel would draw near to hear from God, to worship God, and to stand in his presence (cf. Lev. 9:23; Num. 14:10).

We are His dwelling place and must always put our focus on keeping His abode sacred.

  1. Great post! We, as the People of God, need to take back the truth that is being distorted throughout the world. The temple of God is not a building; we are the temple of God! When we sin, we are desecrating that temple. Even the unsaved have respect for the church building when they are in it. We should have respect for God and His holy temple, our bodies! Thank you for this post!
