A Journey In The Wilderness

Page 188/189, A New Temple

The promise in Scripture that the Temple would be restored is often believed to be the physical Temple in Jerusalem. The Lord is rebuilding the Temple but it is not a temple of bricks and mortar. It is a temple filled with the gold and silver of the righteous deeds of the Saints. It is the circumcised of Heart who have been refined as pure gold, and who are fully prepared for the Master’s use. WE are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Prophecy is for understanding of events as they happen, and to confirm the work of God after the event has happened. There were 800 prophecies about the Messiah which were well known by the Pharisees. They studied them and looked for His coming but they did not see Him when He came. They used carnal understanding to see things that can only be seen by the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. The Pharisees were sincere and devoted believers in God, but carnal. They missed Jesus and His Kingdom when He came because they did not have spiritual eyes to see. They were not humble. Their knowledge caused them to judge things in their own understanding. If we use our own understanding to interpret prophetic Scripture, we will miss Jesus when He comes again, just like the Pharisees. We must not depend on anything other than the Holy Spirit and walk humbly with Him. In humility and surrender there is complete safety. The New Temple will be built of the only thing worthy to be in it - pure gold made by the Holy Spirit. There is nothing we can do of ourselves that would ever qualify to be part of the Temple. We can only surrender to the work of the Holy Spirit and let Him make us into something beautiful. If you are in a difficult time right now, you can rejoice because your humbling circumstances will produce pure gold in you to adorn the restored Temple of God.
