temple thoughts 6

18 Mar

“I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. 24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 25 On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. 26 The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. 27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Revelation 21: 22-26

God, the Father, Son and spirit, are our temple. We enter as overcomers thru the words of our testimony and the blood of our lamb, Jesus. Purity comes from Him; He is light, a lamp, and life.

We sing because He first sang over us. We love because He first loved us. We enter Him, our Temple.

you were named Jesus,
circumcised

before their purification
Mary and
Joseph

they followed all the Law of Moses
had done all that was required by the Law of the Lord

the Spirit moved Simeon, sent Anna

to you

cradled in their arms,

you blessed them, others

in  temple courts
this, your first time in the temple
