The LORD declared to the Israelites that He brought them out of the land of Egypt and that He alone was their God. The LORD then gave the Israelites the Ten Commandments beginning with, “You shall have no other gods before me…” Throughout time, there have been those who have had a problem with the First Commandment. As St Paul put it, “Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom.” But what St Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians applies to anyone who does not believe in God and those who worship false idols. No matter what your religion may be, there is a place that you recognize as God’s House. Be it a church, temple, mosque or synagogue, the place where those of your religion come together to worship is God’s House. Jesus makes it clear that if you disrespect His Father’s house, you disrespect Him. Jesus makes it clear that even if you tear His Father’s House down, He will build it back up. The house that Jesus was making reference to was Himself and the New Jerusalem of heaven (Revelation 21:22) and God’s House within. Each of us is a temple and the Holy Spirit lives in that temple constantly trying to keep us away from doing wrong—committing sins. No matter how many sins we commit, no matter how many commandments we break, the temple will always be rebuilt. The question is: Will we choose to take our physical temples to live in the heavenly temple of the New Jerusalem for all eternity?
