The Effect of Jupiter on Jerusalem

The Effect of Jupiter on Jerusalem…

The story of Hanukah centers on the Temple of Jerusalem. The Temple was the holy dwelling place of God. But in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes, an idol was set up in the holy place.

From that moment on, the Temple ceased to be the Temple of God. It was no longer a holy place or sanctuary. No longer was it the dwelling place of God’s presence.

It became, for all intents and purposes, empty. Only when the Maccabees reclaimed the Temple, and removed the idol, could the Temple be restored to God’s purposes and presence.

The Bible says: “you are the Temple of the Living God.” But if you let idols into your life, the glory of God will be withdrawn, and your walk and heart will be left empty. That’s what idols do to the presence and glory of God.

Have you lost that fullness, that glory? Is your heart empty? Search for the idol. The good news is, when you remove the idols and open your heart to the Lord, your life and heart will be filled again and overflowing with the glory of the Living God.

What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16

Clean out your temple and get rid of that which is not to the glory of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
