Radical Teachings of Christ

Jesus rebuilds the temple. Religion is turned Inside-Out. by Richard Daughtridge

God’s word teaches that God  always desired to live with man. We were created to be loved eternally.

I’ve often wondered how the high priest in the Old Testament felt as they entered into the Holy of Holies to make atonement for man’s sin.

What would it be like to stand in the presence of Holy God?

How would you react?

Well get ready for a radical thought. These temples were rebuilt.  Where? You’ve got to be kidding.

Jesus radically changed the whole concept of holy places in three days.

Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

What would this new temple look like?

Turn to the person sitting beside you and say, “You’re looking at it.” No not the church building but you and the person beside you.

1 Cor. 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1 Cor. 6:19 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?

John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

John 3:3-8 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Rev. 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Rev. 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Two  things flowing  out of us:

1. Water

    John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

    John 7:37-39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. [38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. [39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

    2. Word

    Ephes. 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

    1 Thes. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
