The LORD Our Redeemer!
Sometimes scripture alone can tell a story with very little commentary needed.
We have been reborn as New Creations in Christ.
We are living, breathing Temples, that carry Gods presence into this world and invades The Kingdom of Darkness with His Light! We were creating with a purpose, a purpose that is not unlike the purpose of The Temple that once held The Ark of The Covenant, which held the very Presence of God. We know, that on The Night Jesus was crucified, The Veil of The Temple tore, and The Presence of God left that house made of wood and gold, and entered the hearts of The Redeemed.
I sense in my heart that The Lord is calling His People to rebuild His Temples.
He is calling us to sure up the place of His Abode. He is not only demanding His People take inventory and take responsibility of their Spirits, Souls and Bodies, but, He is promising to be our strength and provider to do it well. He is fully vested in helping us and empowering us to become all He sees us becoming.
We must strengthen those places we have let weaken. We must remove those things that we have allowed to take residence in our minds and bodies that offend His Holy Spirit. We must build up again the eternal things of our spirits, and give The Lord all that we have been holding back.
The Lord is ready for His Sons and Daughters to be revealed.
Let the following scriptures speak to your heart. It is time for us to make Gods Temple a place that gives Him Honor and Glory.
Isaiah 54:11 (NLT)
I will rebuild you with precious jewels
and make your foundations from lapis lazuli.
and make your foundations from lapis lazuli.
2 Chronicles 8:1-6 (NLT)
1 It took Solomon twenty years to build the Lord’s Temple and his own royal palace. At the end of that time, 2 Solomon turned his attention to rebuilding the towns that King Hiram had given him, and he settled Israelites in them.
3 Solomon also fought against the town of Hamath-zobah and conquered it. 4 He rebuilt Tadmor in the wilderness and built towns in the region of Hamath as supply centers. 5 He fortified the towns of Upper Beth-horon and Lower Beth-horon, rebuilding their walls and installing barred gates.6 He also rebuilt Baalath and other supply centers and constructed towns where his chariots and horses could be stationed. He built everything he desired in Jerusalem and Lebanon and throughout his entire realm.
Ezra 1:3New Living Translation (NLT)
Haggai 1:12-14 (NLT)
12 Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of God’s people began to obey the message from the Lord their God. When they heard the words of the prophet Haggai, whom the Lord their God had sent, the people feared the Lord. 13 Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave the people this message from the Lord: “I am with you, says the Lord!”
14 So the Lord sparked the enthusiasm of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the enthusiasm of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God’s people. They began to work on the house of their God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT)

Luke 4:18-19 (NKJV)
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;

To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Jude 20-21 (NLT)
20 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, 21 and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.
