At Horeb the Children of Israel refused to have a one 2 one relationship with Yahovah, this resulted in the need for a tabernacle in the wilderness and a priesthood to substitute as intermediaries. Adam, in Eden had chosen to go his own way, he felt that his independence from Yah, his creator, was important to himself and thay having his own godship was better, but in so doing so, he irrevocably departed from living in harmony with creation and the healing and beneficial way of Yahovah the Creator.
To mitigate this Yah had the Children of Israel build the tabernacle and to start a process of sacrifices and offerings which kept the idea of compliance at the forefront of their minds, it provided a symbology by which the seeker after truth could arrive at Yah’s threshold.
The tabernacle in the wilderness became Solomon’s Temple in which the essence of Yah could be seen, later, after the loss of the first House of Yahovah, the second (Herod’s) temple was build, and greatly expanded and enriched upon by Herod. This was the temple that Yahoshua said would be destroyed and rebuilt in 3 days.
Mat 26:61 said, `This one said, I am able to throw down the sanctuary of God, and after three days to build it.’
Indeed was the temple thrown down.
But it has not been rebuilt to this day, or has it?
The temple was not a virtuous thing, it was a substitute for a personal relationship with Yah, and the 3 day event was yet to come, the three days that Yahushua was to spend in Hades, the 3 days in which Yahushua defeated Satan’s hold over mankind, and, this verse tells us, rebuilt the temple:
1Co 3:16 have ye not known that ye are a sanctuary of God, and the Spirit of God doth dwell in you?
1Co 3:17 if any one the sanctuary of God doth waste, him shall God waste; for the sanctuary of God is holy, the which ye are.
So we complete the circle, each believer, each of us who keeps the Torah of Yahovah as it is written on our hearts, each one of us liberated from his own knowledge of good and evil by the three days and 3 nights, we are the rebuilt temple, no longer a substitute tabernacle in the wilderness, but a direct one 2 one conduit to Yah as He originally intended.
