Pagan Temple of Jerusalem

25 May

Pagan Temple of Jerusalem…

Chanukah is the story of a pagan temple dedicated to the Greek god Zeus, full of ungodliness, idolatry. There were many pagan temples in ancient times but this pagan temple was different.

It was made to be the Temple of God. Its walls and courts were made for pure worship, its holy place for the flame of God, its holy of holies for His presence. It was as a Temple with amnesia, as if it had been made for sin with the Temple of God underneath it.

We’ve lived much of our lives as pagan temples, giving ourselves to ungodliness as if it were natural to be a vessel of sin. You were created to be the very Temple of God, for holiness.

Your mind was created to know the pure thoughts of God, your heart to worship Him, your life to serve and glorify His name. Give yourself no more to that which has no place in the chambers of the Holy Temple of God.

You are the Temple of the Living God. Remove darkness from your midst and be filled with the presence of the Living God, for whose glory you were created.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:19

Today, sanctify your mind and heart, set it apart and let no sin dwell within you that separates you from His Holy presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
