“Yes, in union with Him, you yourselves are being built together into a spiritual dwelling-place for God!” Ephesians 2:22 CJB.
“Or don’t you know that your body is a temple for the Ruach HaKodesh who lives inside you, whom you received from God? The fact is, you don’t belong to your selves; you were bought at a price…” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 CJB.
“The roar of Your foes filled Your meeting-place;
They raised their own banners as a sign of their conquest.
The place seemed like a thicket of trees
when lumbermen hack away with their axes.
With hatchet and hammer they banged away,
smashing all the carved woodwork.
They set Your Sanctuary on fire,
tore down and profaned the abode of Your name…” Psalm 74:4-7 CJB.
“God said to Noach, ‘The end of all living beings has come before Me, for because of them the earth is filled with violence. I will destroy them along with the earth…” Gensis 6:13 CJB.
Father, we are being built into a dwelling place for You, a temple in which Your Spirit abides with us right now in these times.
It is a clean place, a beautiful place, this spiritual-abode, which You are crafting in us, something we could not afford and do not have the ability to do on our own.
May we be strongly protective of our union with You, perceptive, wise… regarding the intentions of those whose ways are not Your Ways.
May we fight against being persuaded into joining with the lawless and not do the violence that lawlessness leads to…that the Foe then, may not enter, profane and destroy the abode of Your name in us, raise His own banner in us…and we, in the end, be destroyed.
May we be warriors for peacemaking, in doing justice, caring for our neighbor and in bringing You glory.
In Yeshua’s name we pray,
