New Creatures in Jesus Christ are the temple of God


Part of being a new creature in Jesus Christ is being the temple of God: the place in which God as Word, Spirit and Father dwell. In order to see the value God places on the temple in which He lives, we can start by looking back to the Old Testament and the ark which held the Word of God carved by God in stone.

At that time, no priests were permitted to open the ark and look on the Word carved in stone, but only once a year were permitted in the same room and to see the ark itself. It was such an experience that a rope was tied to them in case they expired or fainted while in the room.The glory of God descended on the Word of God in the ark as the definition of where the glory of God was to dwell among them at that time. Where ever the Word went, there was to be found the glory of God. These things are beyond dispute.

The tabernacle was expressly built to house the ark; to house the Word of God.

If you buy into satanic lies about the reputation of the ark of God, then you can be deceived that God had Israel build the tabernacle around the ark to house a giant battery of some sort that ‘had power’ as a weapon; that God wasn’t honoring His Word, but simply made technology and honored His own ‘science’. Then you can be deceived that “if the Hebrews took out the ark and carried it before them, then they won every battle.’ and/or ‘whoever carried the ark couldn’t be defeated’. In fact, God caused the Hebrews to be defeated and the ark stolen from them by the Philistines to dis-spell such lies, then plagued the Philistines for the trespass until they sent the ark back with a trespass offering of gold.

God so honors His Word that when the ark was moved to Jerusalem by David, Uzziah touched the ark with the intent in mind of steadying the cart on which it was being carried, God killed him. Uzziah’s intentions were good. But he broke the law of God and dishonored the Word of God. Those who told the Hebrews of that era that they had free will and ‘God only holds you responsible for what you know’ lied to him. That lie got him killed. Not only had the Hebrews expressly been told that when the ark was moved it was to be carried by men who never touched it ( and not on a cart pulled by oxen) , but carried it with poles on their shoulders. God always honors His Word.

We see in the Old Testament what little regard Israel had for the Word of God as it is to this day. The Jews to this hour say they can interpret ‘God’s meanings’ as if God IS human speech and they had power over Him ‘because they have free will’, all the while claiming no one honors that lie about God as Word like themselves to look more religious than others. They don’t even understand what was special about themselves, instead being left in ignorance to make up some special thing with the material of  the speech of men with which to say they have been specifically endowed by God ( like all other false religion). All those deceived they have free will do the same without any free will and in complete ignorance, merely comparing widgets to each other in vain.They have no Word of God; they have only special sets of human speech they decorate for religious purposes.

Seeing then the importance and dignity God places on the place where He as His Word/Jesus Christ as Spirit dwells, it is easy to understand the admonition from God through Paul:

1 Corinthians 3:16,17  Do ye not know that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?   If any one corrupt the temple of God, *him* shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are *ye*.

and

1 Corinthians  6:19,20  Do ye not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God; and ye are not your own?   for ye have been bought with a price: glorify now then God in your body.

Plainly, new creatures in Jesus Christ are made new creatures in Jesus Christ in order that the Spirit of God dwell in us right now.

1John 4:17  Herein has love been perfected with us that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, that even as *he* is, *we* also are in this world.

Several things are immediately apparent:

1. pornography, sodomy, fornication, adultery and abortion are attacks on the temple of God as both physical corruption and dis-honor against the Word of God, even though the lie to push immorality-as-freedom is that God cannot be dishonored in our flesh because He is supposedly somewhere else and His idealized absence keeps the human will ‘free’. I.E. the lie of human free will has been set in place specifically as a foundation from which to dishonor God and destroy human beings as a result and as the sole best-practice and best-doctrine paradigm of behavior of free willer ‘Christians’.

2. the idealization of God’s Word as simply a special set of human words is a lie.

3. False religion exists to expressly confound human / satanic speech with the Word of God/Christ Jesus and dis-honoring God with pleasure and gaining personal power that is supposedly needed because of an idealized absence of God

4. Those deceived men have free will can say none of these things because they do not and cannot know them and are being used, no matter the desire they may have to honor their own false version of God, to dishonor God and kill Christians in the womb and wherever else they may.

The Romanists and the Eastern Orthodox have necromancy and idol worship as a standard practice of their religion and call it ‘asking the saints’ for intercession to God based solely on an idealized absence of God in themselves. They are taught that God is not IN them, that they are not the temple of God Himself, that they are not new creature in Jesus Christ right now, but they if they do all the ceremony of the religion with enough emotion and enthusiasm, then they might earn ‘new creaturism’ in later life in heaven and as a result have a more enhaced version of the ‘free will’ they supposedly have now. It is then no affront to them to have prostitutes and the like among them. The same applies to Protestant free willers and other more plain pagans such as Muslims and Hindus: they see ‘the need for sex without children’ as the standard condition of both man and themselves as religious adherents and as a purpose of having free will. Why would they want free will if not to enjoy themselves with it as the creature they already are? ( aka “Just as I am” )  Thus collectively, they set about fulfilling that need for themselves and others. The filth they perpetuate is plainly seen in the society in which they live; pleasure becomes their religion even if one pleasure is honoring a special set of human words about God more loudly than their neighbor.

In Christ, we have the mind of Christ because God non-metaphorically lives in us. We are then His temple, even the temple of which the Tabernacle of Meeting and the Holy of Holies in the Old Testament were a figure/similitude. Those who say it is the better humility to never mention that you are personally the temple of God and that that is what new creatures in Jesus Christ fundamentally are, are the enemies of God as equally those who would destroy the temple of God as those deceived into making themselves filthy.

God directly Says anyone who corrupts the temple of God, God will destroy.

1John 4:17,18  Herein has love been perfected with us that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, that even as *he* is, *we* also are in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has torment, and he that fears has not been made perfect in love.

The other side of a denial that God dwells in us and that we are the temple of God is that it is a larger denial of Christ, who has said “If you do it unto the least of one of these, you have done it unto me”. The Word was made flesh and all the godhead dwelt in him, both before physical death of the body and after resurrection.

After the resurrection:

Col 2:9  For in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily;

Before the Resurrection:

John 14:8-10  Philip says to him, Lord, shew us the Father and it suffices us.   Jesus says to him, Am I so long a time with you, and thou hast not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how sayest thou, Shew us the Father?  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words which I speak to you I do not speak from myself; but the Father who abides in me, he does the works.

To deny that God dwells in flesh is to deny that Christ has come IN flesh.

1John 4:2,3  Hereby ye know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses Jesus Christ come in flesh is of God;  and every spirit which does not confess Jesus Christ come in flesh is not of God: and this is that power of the antichrist, of which ye have heard that it comes, and now it is already in the world.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
