The Temple of the Holy Spirit is in reference to Yahweh’s Spirit dwelling within His elect.
1 Cor 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of Yahweh, and that the Spirit of Yahweh dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of Yahweh, him shall Yahweh destroy; for the temple of Yahweh is holy, which temple ye are
We are to cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light. Those that fulfill the lusts of the flesh will defile the temple of Yahweh (Rom 13:12-14, Luke 12:22-31).
Acts 7:48-49 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith Yahweh: or what is the place of my rest?
To live in the Spirit is to also walk in the Spirit. The Temple of the Holy Spirit, is meant to be a holy place, that is not filled with the affections and lusts of the flesh (Gal 5:16, 5:24-25).
The elect of Yahweh are not to be unequally yoked together with the unbelievers. The righteous can have no true fellowship with the unrighteous, just as the light has no part in the darkness. When we walk in His light we become the temple of Yahweh; He abides in us, and we also abide in Him.
I will dwell in them says Yahweh, and they shall be my people (2 Cor 6:14-18, 1 John 1:7, 1 John 2:27-28).
He as god sits in the temple of god
2 Thes 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called god, or that is worshipped; so that he as god sits in the temple of god, shewing himself that he is god.
With the revelation of the New Covenant of Messiah, the temple of Yahweh, is no longer a building made with hands (Acts 17:24). Apparently, most mainstream teachers of eschatology are unaware of this fact.
- The article he as god sits in the temple of god, is an essential study guide that exposes the false teaching related to a so-called end times rebuilt jewish temple.
Many, perhaps even the majority of so-called prophecy teachers, fail to correctly interpret this verse regarding the temple of god. The false teachers declare that Satan will occupy a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem.
After Yahweh was manifest in the flesh, the temple of Yahweh, would be a reference to the Holy Spirit dwelling within His children. As well, during the Great Tribulation, the temple of Yahweh most definitely is not in Jerusalem (Rev 11:2).
The Saints that come out of the great tribulation, will have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. As a result of this purification, they are before the throne of Yahweh and serve him day and night in his temple. Therefore the temple of Yahweh can never be referred to as a man-made structure, without the physical and Spiritual presence of Yahweh (Rev 7:14-16).
Satan’s palace will be established in the glorious holy mountain. However, this represents a literal building, and is not the temple of Yahweh (Dan 11:45, Math 24:15).
Until the time of reformation, as a result of the sacrificial Lamb, the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest. But after the appearance of the Messiah, we can have the confidence to enter into the holiest by means of His blood that was shed for us (Heb 9:8-10, 10:19).
The phrase, he as god sits (or dwells) in the temple of god, is in reference to Satan dwelling where he ought not to.
The fulfillment of this then is when Satan occupies the place that should be reserved for the Holy Spirit.
2 Thes 2:9-12 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Yahweh shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness
The Temple of the Holy Spirit of Yahweh
1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
When we put on the mind of Yahweh and are taught by His Spirit, we will see clearly through the deceptive doctrines of man (1 Cor 2:16, John 14:26).
Satan, who is the great deceiver, tries to impersonate the Creator. By dwelling in the place that should be occupied by Yahweh, he shows himself that he is a god (1 Cor 3:16, 6:19, 2 Cor 6:16, Acts 7:48, 17:24, Rev 11:19). His spiritual control over mankind is unto eternal destruction (Math 10:28).
Lest we forget, Satan is the god of this world (2 Cor 4:4).
The temple of Yahweh is not a re-established sanctuary for the Jewish people (Zech 6:12, Rev 11:2).
There will never be another reinstated sacrificial system for those who happen to reside in Israel. Yahshua (the Savior) who is the manifestation of Yahweh in the flesh, did indeed cause the sacrifice and the oblations to cease. He brought forth a body that would became the final sacrifice for sin. After His shed blood, never again would animal sacrifices be acceptable (Dan 9:27, Heb 7:27, 10:8-20).
Dan 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
The word sacrifice in the verse above is added inappropriately. To take away the continual is the appropriate or intended meaning.
Satan’s palace (or his headquarters) will be established in Jerusalem. When the real second gathering of Israel, occurs, the true Israel of Yahweh will reign in a gloriously restored Jerusalem. No longer will Jerusalem be spiritually referred to as Sodom and Egypt, as it is during the Great Tribulation (Rev 11:8).
The anti christ does not make a covenant with Israel. Yahshua (the Savior) and the two witnesses confirm the covenant with many.
