God's Temple

"Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.  But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:21-23

"For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.  But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,  “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them," then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”  Heb 10:14-17
 
"So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” But He was speaking of the temple of His body. Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.” John 2:18-22
 
Jesus was not speaking here of his body of flesh. He said “in three days, *I* will raise it up”. Jesus did not raise up his own body of flesh.  (see Rom.10:7,9Acts2:32). 
Clearly, it was God who raised Christ from the dead. What “body” and “temple” then, did Jesus himself raise by his death and resurrection? 
The scriptures are clear, that by Jesus’ ransom (Rev.5:9,10), he raised up the anointed (messianic/chosen ones) temple (1Cor.3:161Pet.2:5,9Eph.2:22,21,20Ps.118:22John2:19,211Cor.12:27) of his body of 144000 (2Cor.1:21,22Rev.7:4,3;14:1), the united body of which, each Chosen one, is a member (1Cor.12:12,13,14,20,27). 
 
This is the very same temple, where the Father is worshiped in “Spirit and Truth” (1Tim.3:151Pet.2:51Cor.3:162Cor.6:16;1Cor.6:19); those of the New Covenant who have God’s laws written on their hearts (Heb.10:16Deut.6:6,8Rev.14:1). This is the new place of worship, since the death of Christ. With his blood, he bought these chosen ones for God, to be God's priests (Rev.5:9,10), and to be Christ's "bride" (Eph.5:25Rev.21:9,10).
These are the representatives of the “True Religion” here on earth (2Cor.5:201Cor.4:1Mal.2:7John7:18,38Rev.21:622:17;14:3,5).
 
 
Jesus did not describe this arrangement of worship as being organized by men into a "religious" organization or corporation (Acts17:24Heb.9:11Eph.2:10), 
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/10/regarding-organized-religions.html)
but rather, described it as guided by Holy Spirit and Truth (John4:243:816:13,14) under Christ as Head (Eph.5:23). The anointed did not consult and obey, nor were they under the direction of, a "governing body" in Jerusalem (Gal.1:11,12,17,15,16,105:12:4Rom.6:161Cor.7:232Cor.11:20;
 Rev.2:20Col.3:24or some other man-made hierarchy. They were and are, taught collectively by Holy Spirit (1John2:20,27John7:38,3917:26Luke12:1221:14,15Rev.11:5,3,4;Matt.10:27,20John16:13,14,156:45), through the arrangement of Christ's "body"/"temple" (John15:4,5Eph.2:20,21,22;1Pet.2:5,9Mal.2:7), according to the various assignments of it's "parts" (Eph.4:11,12,132:20,211Cor.12:18,28,29,27;Eph.4:11,12). 

As a collective "body" under Christ as Head; it is anointed with spirit, and is thereby sustained by the working of spirit, within it (1John2:20,27Eph.4:11,12Rom.12:5John13:14) (John15:4,5Rom.11:171Cor.12:6,7).
 
Paul confirms that he himself was lead directly by Holy Spirit, and not by an arrangement erected by men, at Gal.1:10,11,12,15,16,17,18,19,20Acts15:8,9,10,36,41;
 
For the "body of Christ", Jesus himself is the Head. As his "bride", all the members of his body submit to the arrangement of the parts, according to their order as arranged by Christ and God (Eph.4:11,121Cor.12:28Eph.4:14,15,16). 

In this way, order and peace are established within Christ's "body" of chosen ones (1Cor.14:12,22,26,29,32,33,37,38,40;12:18,28Rom.12:6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13).

The anointed priests are like branches attached to a vine / rootstock (John15:4,5Rev.22:16Rom.11:16). What they receive is from Christ, not from men (John15:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,15,16Eph.5:29Rom.11:17,18,22Col.2:2). 
 
Jesus once described the individual members of his body, as "trees". This illustration applies well, because just as a grapevine and it's branches produce fruit (John15:5,8); these “trees” also provide “fruit” as spiritual food [Matt.12:33,35Luke6:45; <(Heb.13:15Hosea14:2); Matt.7:17,20Jer.17:7,8;

All the faithful fruitful ones, are dependent upon the sap/holy spirit/living water, coming from the throne/true vine/olive root (Rom.11:17John15:4,51Cor.12:13John6:63Luke8:18). 

If Christ removes holy spirit from an erring chosen one, that tree dries up (Mark11:14,20,21Joel1:12Mark4:25John15:2,6;Col.2:19Eph.4:16,11,12).
 
Jesus described the fruit/teachings of the fine, true prophets, as being:
SOURCED IN GOD’S WORD (John7:16,17,188:47a;John17:17Matt.5:14Ps.36:91John1:5Luke11:35,36John8:121:4,5,14) and as PROMOTING THE GLORY/Righteousness OF GOD, not self-glory (Matt.6:33). This they could do, due to having God’s Laws written on their hearts, combined with the blessings of insight which Holy Spirit would grant them (1John2:20,271Pet.2:9Matt.13:11).
 
 
They receive that spirit through their union with the Head (1Cor.6:172:14Eph.2:18John17:2314:20) and the harmony with the whole "body" that would result. 
This Chosen Priesthood, serve within God’s spiritual Temple, the "body" of Christ (Rev.3:11,125:107:1522:3,4Mal.2:7;1Pet.2:5,9,10).

 In more modern times, many of these anointed priests congregated together. They became organized. Of course, Satan was not going to leave their activities undisturbed (Matt.13:24,25,26,27,28Isa.63:18Rev.11:2Luke22:31).

The faithful work of doing God’s will, would always be resisted and opposed; right within the midst of these priests (Acts20:29,301Tim.4:1;Matt.24:4,5,24,257:15Rev.13:11;2Thess.2:4,9; 2Cor.11:12,13Matt.13:30).

Those who form an organized hierarchy outside the body of Christ, help Satan to resist, defy, and malign God's arrangement (Isa.1:211Cor.6:15 BRev.17:2,12:20Rev.18:4;2Cor.6:17)

("Who are the Kings of the Earth?").

Not all anointed will prove faithful (Matt.25:1,222:14). 
Those who prove unfaithful, exchange love for their brothers and for truth, for worldly power and self-serving doctrines of men (John5:441John3:10,11,13,14,15Rev.17:61John2:15Rev.2:42Thess.2:10,121Cor.4:8John7:16,18Mark7:7Rom.1:25).
 
Those proving unfaithful, are the very ones who become proud, prominent, powerful, tyrannical, and abusive (Luke16:8;22:24,25,26,271John4:202:9,113:10,15), and dominate their brothers to their injury. 

Where would anointed ones get such power?
These unfaithful leave their subjection to Christ, leave unity with the body of Christ as arranged by God, and ally themselves with the power of Gentiles (not anointed), instead. 
They betray their covenant with God [to have His laws on their heart -Jer.31:33; (*Deut.6:6,8)], 
to enter a covenant with Satan 
[Jer.11:9,10,11Rev.9:1,1113:1,4,11,12,15 (*Rev.13:16,17); Rev.17:1,3,5Isa.28:15]. 
They leave their confidence in the strength of God (Phil.4:13Ps.18:2,3), for the worldly advantage and power that come from forming an alliance with those not anointed, and with them, create an Organization (http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html). 
 
This structural arrangement, (of unfaithful anointed heading up a non-anointed counterfeit priesthood), is a fabrication that stands in defiance of the authentic body/temple/priesthood of God, within which His spirit operates and dwells. It is a "disgusting thing" standing in a holy place...a "man of lawlessness" dominating the body of Christ, usurping Christ's headship over his Bride members.
(Not anointed--spiritual Gentiles --Rom.2:28,29) 
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/
 
(Jer.17:5,7,1311:3,10,11,12Rev.6:162Chron.32:8; Ps118:8; 
Isa.2:2230:1Rev.17:3,7).
This decision to dominate their brothers in Christ by means of the
"muscle" of Gentiles, changes their designation from a chaste virgin of Christ 
(2Cor.11:2Rev.14:4,5Eph.5:25,26,27James1:271John2:15), 
to that of a harlot 
(Hosea9:1Jer.5:52:20,19,213:1,2Isa.1:21Eze.16:15)....
....from a vessel of truth and life 
(John7:38,391Tim.4:162Cor.4:6,7Rev.22:17
to a vessel of deception and death 
(Jer.2:21Isa.5:2,4Deut.32:32,33,15,18,6,16Rev.13:15,8
 
Faithful anointed, are to have nothing to do with these unfaithful leaders (Ps.26:4Isa.1:211Cor.6:1510:21,222Cor.6:16,17,18;Rev.18:42Tim.3:5Mark13:14).

But not all anointed stay clear of these unfaithful leading harlots (Rev.17:1,2,18,13)
(kings of earth? --Rev.1:5,65:10  (http://pearl-kingsofearth.blogspot.com/).
These too desire the stature which only inclusion within a worldly Gentile Organization can offer (Rev.17:2,12,13,17,18,16;1John2:15John17:168:13,23,37,40,59,42

The "world" into which Jesus came, was the unfaithful religious system of those in covenant with God. (Matt.15:24Rom.1:16;Acts3:26) (John1:113:197:78:44Matt.23:33). 
Just as that part of Satan's "world" (which hated Jesus), were those unfaithful among God's people...
So too, the unfaithful of God's people today, are also the "world" which hates the faithful (John15:1816:2Acts5:33Luke12:45;1John4:203:12John7:7Rev.11:7,10).

To be a genuine faithful ambassador of Christ, means to be rejected, despised and abandoned by that religious part of Satan's "world"...those who have rebelled against their covenant with God, which exact type of hatred and persecution, imitates the path of our Master, Christ (Rev.11:8John15:18,20Matt.10:24,2512:24John16:2017:14;

The secular world did not hate Jesus (Luke23:4,14,15Matt.27:23John18:3619:4,6).
It is those whom the truth condemns, that hate the faithful (Mark11:18John7:18:37,4011:531John3:12Jude1:11;Rev.2:14,16;
2Thess.2:8,4John3:20Matt.24:923:27,28,34,35Rev.18:2417:6Jer.51:49).
The knowledge of who it is that persecutes and "kills" Christ's faithful end-time slaves, must be used to guide our interpretation of Revelation's warring identities, if we hope to understand it accurately. 
 
The “lawlessness” or, lack of Christ’s “law” of love displayed among the unfaithful anointed (John13:34James2:8Matt.7:22,23;24:1225:42,43,44,45,41), has manifested itself in the midst of the faithful chosen, right from the start (2Thess.2:71Cor.4:8). It was prophesied to intensify in the last days (Matt.24:127:232Tim.3:1,5,7,132Thess.2:8).
 
Yhwh aptly conveyed, that at the time of the end, when all would face judgment before God’s Throne (Rom.14:122Cor.5:10;Matt.12:36), that there would be a people who would call themselves by His name (Jer.25:29,30Rev.14:18,19). 
There are many detailed prophecies how this people would fare during God’s inspection and judgment 
(see pearl-winepress.blogspot.com)
and (pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com). 

All those prophetic details are becoming clearly manifest in association within the unfolding events of the Organization known as "Jehovah’s Witnesses". Those details include the faithful anointed alongside the unfaithful…the constant scenario and climate which has always existed for the Chosen (Matt.13:30Gen.3:15). The details of Revelation's symbolic scenarios and symbolic identities are also being fulfilled in association with that religious mountain.

Because the parasitic anointed seek to garnish the blessing being received by the faithful, by exploiting, condemning, and yet capitalizing on their spiritual success and insight (Matt.25:8Luke16:313:24John6:27Matt.25:26); the “True Religion” will always be adulterated by those who cause divisions in the anointed body of Christ, and shame Jude1:12,13,16,17,18,19

Yet part of proving faithful, eventually requires that the faithful divorce themselves from the unclean...those who have been spotted by the world (1Cor.6:15,16,17Isa.63:18,19Matt.24:15,162Cor.6:17). But not before they give a warning. 
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/08/here-is-answer-to-comment-that-was-left.html


http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/05/warning-letter.html

They will then be cast out, for this simple adherence to truth and subjection to Christ (Matt.10:1623:34John16:2Rev.11:2,3,7;13:1517:66:9,10,1112:10,11;

 Matt.10:16,17,18,19,20,21,22,32,33Mark8:35).

At the arrival of the Kingdom, those who exalt themselves will be humbled; and those who have humbled themselves and have continued to provide spiritual blessing in the midst of this persecution, will then be exalted (1Pet.5:6,10James4:10Matt.23:12;2Thess.2:4,8).
The challenge for all those seeking the “True Religion” is to identify the Chosen which are proving faithful. Jesus provided ample direction and instruction to empower us to do so. 
(see: pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com). 
 
According to prophecy, we must expect that the faithful, will be associated for a time with a powerful organization (of spiritual Gentiles) under the direction of the unfaithful (2Thess.2:4Dan.7:258:11,12,24,10Rev.12:4,1711:213:7).
 
This is why Jesus illustration of his wicked Steward, points to anointed who are over other anointed (Matt.24:45,48,49,50,51Hosea6:5). 

None should oppress, but rather, Jesus appoints such a one, to serve (1Pet.5:1,2,3,4John13:14,15,16,17). 

Jesus well knew ahead of time, that those proving unfaithful, would be those dominating their brothers without mercy and love (Matt.24:49,127:23), and supporting that position based upon a lie of premature stature of divine approval (Matt.24:48Matt.25:52Thess.2:1,2,3) and the power of organized Gentiles (Wild Beast from the "sea"/"abyss"), who would seem directed by God's spirit/breath, due to the lies of a false prophet (Rev.13:15,14). 

These unfaithful leaders would not have enough Holy Spirit to provide the “proper food at the proper time” (Matt.24:4525:8;John15:4), but would substitute the truth with their own doctrines (John7:18,178:47), which would empower the Beast/Organization that enforces their own authority (Rev.13:12,149:1,2,3).
 
Yet the faithful would continue to provide good fruit as fine trees….for the sustenance of any who “received” them (Matt.10:40,41,42John13:2012:4815:8) and their sayings/teachings/fruit (Matt.7:20). 

By accepting living water by means of the faithful vessels, (John4:10,147:38Isa.12:31Tim.4:162Cor.4:7Matt.5:14,15,16;Rev.22:17),
these accepting sheep can exercise faith in Christ according to Truth, and receive that living water's benefits (John17:33:164:14Matt.10:40,41,42).

"Yhwh's Genuine Mountain"

 

 
 

 

 

Revelation 22:2

In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, eachtree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Ezekiel 47:12

Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”
