The first temple was made of gold, it was luxurious and beautiful. When the disciples approached Jesus and said to him with admiration, “Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings…” Jesus replied, “Not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be thrown down.”(Mark 13:2). So it happened. Roman empire destroyed the temple totally. Gold was melted and taken away and the stones went to ruin. But the Word of God says that glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house and the Lord will give peace there.
We know that Jesus Christ came and built His temple in our hearts. It is written that we became a temple of God. I think as the first temple was built of gold, so we should become golden containers in the hands of the Lord.
Beloved! Don’t be afraid of declaring that you are the temple of the Lord and the Holy Spirit lives in you! If you glorify the name of the Lord, He will glorify you. The glory of the Lord will come onto you and you’ll be filled with His peace.
Live and walk in the peace of the Lord! God bless you! Amen
