Know Ye Not That Your Body Is The Temple Of God.

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" 1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV.

The word temple is from the greek word naos meaning a shrine or sanctuary. A sanctuary is a structure set apart to God. It is a physical emblem of His presence in a place. God asked Moses to build a tabernacle for Him in the wilderness that He may dwell among them. From that tabernacle, God moved to the temple which was built by Solomon the son of David. The temple had three courts; the outer court, the Holy Place and the Most Holy place.  It was a type of the temple God would live in for eternity- man. Man is a triune being, spirit, soul and body.  The outer court represents the body, the holy place is the soul and most holy being the spirit man.

Through the prophets God promised, “....I will dwell in them and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” (II Corinthians 6:16 KJV). Thus He has fulfilled by sending the Holy Spirit to live in us. God is resident in your body. You are a heavenly shrine set apart to display the beauties, virtues and glory of God. Your body is the most prized commodity anywhere on the planet, don't denigrate it. Without it, you have no right to function here and without it God has no legal right to walk on earth. God needs your body to touch and influence people for good.

Therefore it is in God's interest to keep you alive on earth as long as it takes to have His purpose fulfilled in your life. Dying doesn't help God any bit on His agenda on earth.  Being sick doesn't help God's agenda on earth either. You cannot do God's will and purpose for your life if you're constantly infirm. Sick people can't preach the gospel,  heal the sick or raise the dead. Poverty (lack of required necessities) is a bad testimony of the God who lives in the temple, so God will see to it that His temple is amply provided for. You are His temple, a chosen vessel designed for honor and glory. Praise God.


My body is the temple of the God. God takes care of His temple, keeps it in health and alive evermore. God's temple lacks nothing.
