What are the True Mansions of God?
Page 3

Here in this verse, the Jews ask Jesus to give them a sign that would justify His authority for overturning the tables of the money changers (John 2:15). Jesus said to them, "If you destroy this temple, then in three days I will raise it up again," signifying to them His death and resurrection (Luke 24:46). The Jews did not understand what Jesus meant. They thought He was talking about the temple building in Jerusalem. The building that Jesus referred to is the many-member body of believers which made up the New Testament Temple of His resurrection (Ephesians 2:22-23).

1 Corinthians 6:19-20-What? Know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Godís.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17-Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the Temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the Temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Here, Paul asked the question, "Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God." I ask you an equally probing question: Know ye not that your body is the mansion for Godís Spirit? In this study I have tried to methodically document scripturally, the true mansions of God from the false expectation of a physical building, I pray that I have done that. I thank you for study with Men as Trees Teaching Ministry and encourage you to view some of the other Bible studies on this website.
