GOD’S PRESENCE - ARK OF THE COVENANT
GOD’S PRESENCE - ARK OF THE COVENANT
Glory can be described as being in the presence of God or in direct fellowship with God.
ARK OF THE COVENANT
In the Holy of Holies
KNOW YE NOT THAT YE ARE THE TEMPLE
OF THE LIVING GOD.
Corinthians 6:16 [KJV]
Christians are “the temple of the Living God.”
TEMPLE [Hebrew word = BAYITH]
Bayith translates as:
To build a house, to rebuild, to establish a house[hold], to establish a family, to continue, to establish in.
Temple – means church, holy place, place of worship, sanctuary, and shrine.
The word temple is used in the scriptures to describe the following physical building, for instance,
...`Now Eli the priest was sitting on a chair by the doorpost of the Lord's temple.'
1 Samuel 1:9b.
Christ's human body was also described as a temple - `Jesus answered them,
"Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."....But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
Likewise it can be shown that we ourselves – Christian’s bodies - enjoy the privilege of serving as a temple [house, household of the living God]
Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
1 Corinthians 3:16,17.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;...
1 Corinthians 6:16.
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
2 Corinthians 6:16.
Once again we see the idea of a house or household being expressed and elucidated; this thought is continued in the verse below.
...you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
