The Temple Rebuilt?

2 Thes. 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means; for except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2 Thes. 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is Elohim, or that is worshiped; so that he as Elohim sitteth in the temple of Elohim, shewing himself that he is Elohim.

We are the temple. The Body of Messiah, all believers and followers of Messiah are the Holy Temple wherein the Spirit of Elohim dwells. THIS is the temple in which the anti-Messiah wishes to sit and proclaim himself to be elohim: “so that he as Elohim sitteth in the temple of Elohim, shewing himself that he is Elohim.”

Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in Elohim

Eph. 2:22 whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of Elohim through the Spirit.

As Ephesians tells us, we are all fit together as the Holy Temple. If the Body of a believer is the Temple then Satan has succeeded, in large part, in sitting within the Temple and proclaiming himself to be “god” when that believer rises on Sunday, or any other “holiday” of the modern church, and attends services that worship him.

Satan accomplishes this by convincing people that the “law” (Torah) is done away with, that the Sabbath and Feasts are no more and has instituted new forms of worship that have been deemed an abomination by Yahweh. He has “opposed” all things of Yahweh and has “exalted” himself above all things of Yahweh by removing all things of Yahweh from the church. He has somehow convinced the people that an unchanging Yahweh has changed all that He had put in place. He has therefore, installed himself in the MINDS of believers as “god” for unbeknownst to them, they worship him through these observances that have been instituted within the “church.”

All it takes is one look at the Christian churches around the world and we see that in each and every one there is practiced observances that Yahweh had expressly stated we should not use to worship Him. It is apparent that the entire “church body” had been infiltrated by wolves at some point in the past and directed or guided the “church” to this false form of worship. We are told in the New Testament that these wolves were already working within the church. As time passed their activity escalated.

“The new Christians were, as far as thinking and habits went, the same old pagans… Their surge into the churches did not wipe out paganism. On the contrary, hordes of baptized pagans meant that paganism had diluted the moral energies of organized Christianity to the point of impotence.”
[Centuries of Christianity: A Concise History, p. 58]

As the ages have passed the more concrete evidences have been lost to history, purposely removed or hidden. Reintroducing truthful doctrine then becomes a difficult task as the MINDS of believers, having been subjected their entire lives to false doctrines and observances, are not easily persuaded of these truths. The evidence available is sufficient to support the premise that the application of the former observances are very much doctrinal truth for todays believing Christian and should be adhered to. However, some of the erroneous doctrine appears to share equal footing in evidence as time has allowed for changes in doctrine to support changes in translations or elimination of scripture altogether.

The greatest obstacle to overcome is the centuries of tradition which has instilled in men an almost absolute rigidity in doctrinal beliefs. In further support of these doctrines it is advanced that because these observances have come from so far in the past, being passed down from generation to generation, that they must be correct. And this is accepted even though many scriptural passages and historical facts can prove the error without doubt.

The MIND of man has been trained to accept false doctrine as truth thus substantiating that Satan has seated himself as “god” within the Temple (the body/mind of the believer). More evidence of this fact is substantiated by teachings regarding the Holy Observances of the Sabbaths and Feasts of Yahweh in comparison with current holidays observed by Christian churches around the world.

In Heb. 9:11 we are told: “But Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, this is to say, not of this building;” supporting the fact that the Temple is not made with hands and not a building.

Throughout the Word can be found verses that demonstrate that the Temple resides within, and is, the body of believers. The Temple is not just spiritual in nature because the Temple is housed within the physical body of believers, making it a physical structure “not built by hands.” I feel no need to continue on this course as it is abundantly apparent that the Temple is now found within the body of the true church and this is easily confirmed by search of scripture.

Knowing all of this: How is it that so many people still believe that it is necessary for a Temple to be built in Jerusalem and that a man, known as the “son of perdition,” will walk in, seat himself and proclaim himself to be “god” within that Temple?

 I believe that time is much shorter than most believe. There will not be a temple built in Jerusalem. They may begin to build, but it will never be completed before Messiah comes.
