The Most High Does Not Dwell in a Temple Made With Hands
Church is a House Full of Sinners and on top of that you keeping the Shabbat on the wrong day!!!It's the 7th day which is a Saturday.........Sunday is the 1st day of the Week but let continued on the lesson for today
In the Old Testament, when Ahayah commanded the Tabernacle to be built, it was a place for Ahayah to dwell with the people. The people did not meet inside the Tabernacle.Only the priests entered the Tabernacle. The people met together and worshiped Ahayah outside under the open sky. They never entered the Tabernacle or later the Temple.
Today, Ahayah does not dwell in a building, He dwells in our hearts. We do not have to meet at a special building or enter a special building to worship Ahayah. A church building is not needed for us to meet or worship Ahayah,nor is it needed for the center of the life of the church.
Acts 17:24-25 Ahayah that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
Acts 7:48-51 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? 50 Hath not my hand made all these things? 51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Spirit:as your fathers did, so do ye.
Isaiah 66:1-2 Thus saith The Most High,The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith The Most High: but to this man will I look,even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit,and trembleth at my word.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Jeremiah 7:1-14 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Most High, saying,Stand in the gate of the Most High's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Most High, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Most High.Thus saith the Most High of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the Most High,The temple of the Most High, The temple of the Most High, are these. For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor;If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever. Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Most High. But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel.And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the Most High, and I spoke unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not;Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of Ahayah, him shall Ahayah destroy; for the temple of Ahayah is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Spirit which is in you, which ye have of Ahayah, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify Ahayah in your body, and in your spirit, which are Ahayah's.
2 Corinthians 6:16-17 And what agreement hath the temple of Ahayah with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as Ahayah hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
Ephesians 2:19-22 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of Ahayah; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,Yashayah himself being the chief corner stone;In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple in Ahayah:In whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of Ahayah through the Spirit.
We, as Israelites, are the temple of Ahayah; we are the church. It is totally unnecessary to worship Him in a special building.
A Friend had ask me ...... Why do so many ministers of God's word sell their sermons, isn't the Gospel supposed to be free? Why people who are sick never get heal when they always go to church? And I had told him..... There are so many reason to your questions. Let's begin Young Grass hoper The first is that you are presuming that they are ministers of God. It was written: "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father in heaven." (Matthew 7:21 - KJV). Are they doing the will of God? The second part is addressed to the ignorants. It is written: "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: ..." (2 Peter 2:3 - KJV) God does not need or want our money, today we are using paper stamped with numbers and led to beleive that it is worth something. "The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts." (Haggai 2:8 - KJV) Why would he want stamped paper? On the other hand, we want it; be it because of avarice or vanity. In the begining people traded and bartered. Also, many pastors do not follow Pauls example of working See Acts 18:3 and "... and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself." (2 Corinthians 11:9 - KJV) Third Part ...Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. As you can see The Messiah had said we was giving the power to do these things for free so we must freely give. let's go deeper Isaiah 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Thirsteth - For the grace of God and the blessings of the gospel. This thirst implies a vehement, and active, and restless desire after it. No money - Those who are most worthless and wicked, if they do but thirst may be welcome. Buy - Procure or receive that which is freely offered. Wine and milk - All gospel - blessings; in particular, that peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Ruach), which are better than wine, and that love of God which nourishes the soul, as milk does the body. Matthew 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. And as ye go, preach -and as you proceed,proclaim like Yashayah (Messiah) - make this proclamation wherever ye go, and while ye are journeying. Preach and travel; and, as ye travel, preach-proclaim salvation to all you meet.(The Israelites and The Gentiles) Wherever the ministers of Yashayah (Messiah) go, they find lost, ruined souls; and, wherever they find them, they should proclaim Yashayah,and his power to save. For an explanation of the word proclaim or preach, see on Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, THE DISCIPLE DID ALL THESE THING FOR FREE From this commission we learn what the grand subject of apostolic preaching was-The Kingdom Of Heaven Is At Hand! This was the great message. "They preached,"to establish the faith;the kingdom,to animate the hope;of heaven,to inspire the love of heavenly things,and the contempt of earthly; which is at hand, that men may prepare for it without delay." Acts 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
