Habitation of God Through the Spirit

It had been the ambition of King David of Israel to build a temple for the Lord. First Chronicles Twenty-Two reveals that God declined to have David build the House of the Lord because he had shed much blood by the making of great wars. Rather, Jehovah ordained that David’s son, Solomon, would build the temple and that he would be given rest from enemies while Israel dwelt in peace and quietness. David, however, began the accumulation of materials Solomon would need to begin the project. In both of his Corinthian epistles, Paul described the Christian as being the temple of God through the Spirit, and, through His Word, He has provided us all the spiritual materials necessary to become such. Further, because the Lord’s Kingdom is not of this world, it is a spiritual, not a physical struggle, which we must undertake. Paul told the Ephesians that, upon the Chief Corner Stone of Christ, they became an holy temple and an habitation of God through the Spirit.
