Topic: MAINTAIN GOD’S TEMPLE 1
Text: Genesis 2:7
📖7….”And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
🔥Man beautifies his dwelling home, for it to be conducive and safe for him. So, each time the head of the house, which is the father, comes home and finds the house unkept, he vents his anger upon his subordinates who ought to tidy the house. Some men may even pick a quarrel or a fight with their wives because of untidy homes. Many marriages have collapsed due to messy homes by wives of unbearing husbands. Yet same man who is conscious of the cleanliness of his home, doesn’t understand that his own body is God’s home.
🔥🔥According to Acts 7:48, the Most High dwells in houses like man, but He doesn’t dwell in houses made by man, but those made by Himself. That is why He built the house called man in his own image and likeness (Gen 1:26-27), and breathed His spirit into it (Gen 2:7), to suit his accommodation. This qualified man as God’s temporary home, in the garden of Eden. Then, God would come to fellowship with the house that his spirit was dwelling in from time to time (Gen 3:8), until the building was cracked by the serpent in Genesis 3:1-6, and it became unsafe for God to either fellowship with or enter.
🔥🔥🔥It was this satanic crack that changed many of God’s initial plans of fellowshipping with man in the cool of the day, to a no nonsense God. Throughout the whole Old Testament, God was training man on how to maintain his temple so that he could come in and dwell again, but man was unmoved. But the few that maintained their bodies with faith in God and obedience to him, enjoyed God’s blessings. But the faithless people were cut off from God’s fellowship. The question today is, are we truly keeping our bodies clean enough for God to come in and dwell?
🙏Dear Father in heaven, enlighten me by your word of submissiveness, so that I will always keep myself tidy for you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, retain that your spirit that attracts you to fellowship with man in me, to extradite Satan from me back to hell, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, mend every spiritual crack in my life with the blood of Jesus Christ, to prevent demonic pollutions in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
HOLD YOUR PEACE, THE BATTLE IS GOD’S!
