"Re:Tribulation Temple and the Antichrist's "Host""
Kevin and fellow doves.,
think you are spot on in your interpretation of the end times "temple"
being a spiritual temple not a physical temple. The verse that the Lord
gave me to confirm the interpretation was in 1 Peter 2. "As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
amazing that just prior to this verse it talks about how we should
"long for the pure spiritual milk." He doesnt say long for physical
"milk" but rather for the "spiritual milk" which is the wisdom and
understanding imparted to us by the Holy Spirit by means of the Word of
God. In addition, just after 1 Peter 2:6 he says, "For it stands in Scripture: 'Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious,
and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame."
know Jesus was not an actual "cornerstone." I think this is the perfect
confirmation of the truth that we are the end times "temple" and that
we are all living stones (born again believers) who will be "rejected
by men" but will be built up into a "temple of the Holy Spirit".
I think Matthew 13:10-15 says it best, The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?" He
replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has
been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and
he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will
be taken from him. This is why I speak to them in parables:
"Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
" 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
For this people's heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.' 16But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17For
I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see
what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not
Great work Kevin!
Blessings In Christ,
