Ezekiel 43:12 (NLT) “And this is the basic law of the Temple: absolute holiness! The entire top of the hill where the Temple is built is holy. Yes, this is the primary law of the Temple.”
Uche visited his uncle in the city for the very first time and was taken to a museum. When he saw the carved images, he ran to one of them in excitement and attempted to worship the image because he was an idol worshiper, but he was held back. “It’s only an image!” his uncle exclaimed.
Uche’s uncle did not allow him to bow to the image in worship because he knew the image was not an idol. An image however will become an idol when a demonic spirit is invoked into it.
In the same manner that an image can become an idol because of an invoked spirit, a house becomes the temple of the Lord when it is made holy. For instance, It was holiness that separated the vessels in the holy of holies from those in the outer court.
God no longer dwells in buildings (temples) Acts 7:48, He dwells in man (see 1 Corinthians 3:16). He however does not dwell in all men, he dwells in those who have fulfilled the basic law of a temple.
The basic law of the temple is absolute holiness. If you do not fulfill this basic requirement of a temple, you will not house God; his presence, or power.
If you desire to be a carrier of God’s presence, you must learn the way of holiness and this will be manifest in your righteous living.
Go into today knowing that there is no substitute for holiness if you must be God’s temple.
Prayer: Father, please lead me in the path of righteousness so I may be holy in Jesus’ name. Amen!
