Caption: WHAT! A TEMPLE OF GOD?
“What! know (understand) ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you..”Know (understand) ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1Cor. 6:19, 1Cor. 3:16. Kindly take cognizance of the exclamation mark (!) in the first Scripture.
The punctuation mark (!) is used to show a forceful way of speaking or a strong feeling. It also denotes a sharp or sudden cry: a word, phrase, or sound that expresses a strong emotion. With this understanding, can you please reread the Scriptures above? The punctuation mark (!) shows that Apostle Paul was exclaiming in anger while talking to the Corinthians when they didn’t know what they ought to know. That’s the way I see it.
Now, having known that I’m the temple of God and that the Holy Spirit of God indwells in me, let’s with this understanding add Romans 8:11: “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (heal, give life to) your (weak, sick) mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” This is another healing pills I concocted for myself from the Word for a sickness free life. The Holy Spirit is My body quickener. I’m a Kingdom Pharmacist! Sickness molested! Hallelujah!
Action cue: Watch out for what’s obtainable in my body as the temple of God in the next post in Matt 21:12-13. There’s security in Understanding of the Word. I’m Graced!
JESUS IS GOD!
