Temple of God

Revelation 3: 12-13 “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of God, and he will not go out from it anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from God, and my new name.”

1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

1 Corinthians 6:19 “or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, who you have from God and that you are not your own?”

2 Corinthians 6:16 “or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God, just as God said.”

My friend, do you not have the realization that you are the temple of the Living God? The kingdom of God is in you. Christ is a perfect incarnation of God that comes to redeem the world because of sin. Yet, you incarnate through desire. You have come here to grow in your salvation, yet you know it not. You have become lost in this incarnation in several ways. You mistakenly identify as a male, or as a female. You claim to be of a certain race, or creed. You have conformed to a material world as real, unending. You believe you are from a lineage of a family with continued sin, shortcomings, and difficulty.

Although all you believe to be true above, those facts are not who you are in God.

God is writing through John in Revelation that you shall not incarnate here as you have overcome self. Why do you come here to earth? Ask the Holy Spirit this question. Do not allow our self to generate an answer through reason and the intellect. Learn to listen to the still small voice and overcome self.

Do you not understand that you are a pillar in which God dwells? Yet you continue to identify with a realm that is ever-changing. You must learn to go within and overcome. Then you will grasp that your only desire is God and God alone! Do not succumb to the deluded beliefs in the current church in which many beliefs are very shallow.

Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, and knock and He will open the door. Yet you receive not because you do not ask. And therefore, you lack understanding of the truth of why you are here.
