the most high dwelleth not

in temples made with hands

a counterfeit christian

For thousands of year people have gathered in churches, temples, and synogogues all over the world. But why? Why do they gather in buildings made by the hands of men when God does not dwell in them?

Mar 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Act 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

Act 7:49 Heaven [is] my throne, and earth [is] my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what [is] the place of my rest?

Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

1Cr 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, [ye are] God's building.

2Cr 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Hbr 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Hbr 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, [which are] the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

What church did Jesus build?

Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Jesus was stating He would build His church upon what Peter answered when Jesus asked "Mat 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?"

Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Mat 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

When Peter said this to Jesus, he was saying that Jesus is equal to God, that Jesus is God. This is the truth that we all must come to. This is the Mystery of the Godhead. This is why the Jews crucified Jesus. They accused Him of blasphemy.

So, why is it that people gather into buildings made with the hands of men and become members of that building? Are we not to be members of the body of Christ?
