I thought about how people are the temple of God. Without the spirit of God dwelling with us, men would basically become “animals”. Now many times i wonder exactly what does it mean to “defile the temple”. Because if we defile our temple, God will destroy us.
1 Corinthians Chapter 3
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of
God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for
the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
So it’s pretty important not to defile ourselves. We look to Scripture for answers, yea, we look to Jesus for the answers.
Matthew Chapter 15
THEN came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of
2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they
wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the
commandment of God by your tradition?
10 ¶ And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that
which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
In Gospel of the Holy Twelve we find more information about what defiles man – things coming out of his mouth, as well as what he puts into his body. For example, if you ate something that changed your DNA into hog DNA, and made yourself into a half human half pig. This would defile your temple and i don’t think God would dwell within your swine body. This can actually happen. Maybe not by eating something, but by injecting things into the body. Things such as bacteriophages can change your DNA permanently, even your seed. And if that happens to you, you would never be human again, neither would your offspring, if you were even able to have any. But these are a few things that can defile our temple.
Gospel of the Holy Twelve Lection 43
10. AND there came unto him certain of the Scribes and Pharisees who had seen one of his disciples eat with unwashed hands.
11. And they found fault, for the Jews eat not except they have first washen their hands and many other things observe they, in the washing of Cups and of vessels and of tables.
12. And they said, Why, walk not all thy disciples after the tradition of the elders, for we saw one who did eat with unwashed hands?
13. And Iesus said, Well hath Moses commanded you to be clean, and to keep your bodies clean, and your vessels clean, but ye have added things which ofttimes cannot be observed by every one at all times and in all places.
14. Hearken unto me therefore, not only unclean things entering into the body of man defile the man, but much more do evil thoughts and unclean, which pour from the heart of man, defile the inner man and defile others also. Therefore take heed to your thoughts and cleanse your hearts and let your food be pure.
15. These things ought ye to do, and not to leave the others undone. Whoso breaketh the law of purification of necessity, are blameless, for they do it not of their own will, neither despising the law which is just and good. For cleanliness in all things is great gain.
16. Be ye not followers of evil fashions of the world even in appearance; for many are led into evil by the outward seeming, and the likeness of evil.
I also thought about Revelation and the Scripture where the angels held the sea and earth still, so that no one would get hurt while the other angel went around sealing people with the seal of the living God. They don’t really explain to us exactly why these people are being sealed. But as we read through the chapter, we can begin to see what is happening. I believe these people are being sealed for the Rapture, and no harm will come to them. They are being protected by God.
Revelation Chapter 7
AND after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners
of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should
not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of
the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to
whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we
have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there
were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes
of the children of Israel.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could
number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood
before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes,
and palms in their hands;
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these
which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These
are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their
robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day
and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell
Then we can see that in verse 14 that these people “came out of great tribulation”. These must be the people that God “called out of Babylon”. So it appears to me that the reason these people received the seal of the living God is so that they would be Raptured. So i believe this is another Scripture that informs us about the Rapture, and about those folks who will be saved from the tribulation.
Before i mentioned that some folks may decide that they almost believe, but not quite. Some folks might be thinking to themselves that they will wait and see if the Rapture really does occur, and then if it does, they will change their ways and obey God. However, we can see that this is a very dangerous thing to do. We should not take chances with our physical lives, and they only last about 50 years. So we definitely don’t want to take chances with our spiritual lives, because they last for ever. So if a person waits to see if Rapture does happen, when it does, he is then going to go running to God, praying Let me in! But he is going to be one of the foolish virgins. Too late. The door is already open and closed. But that’s not the worst part.
Because the worst thing would be that the Rapture occurs at the same time lets say a worldwide earthquake disaster. The people in the Rapture would be gone in a flash. The people on Earth may very likely perish during the same event. So they could lose their opportunity for Heaven, for ever. It’s pretty risky chance to take, and certainly nothing here on Earth is worth giving up the Kingdom of Heaven for. That’s why reasonable folks obey God, whether if they can hear God’s voice or not. Because God gave them His Written Word, so if they cannot hear, they can still read it and SEe.
But then again, pledging your life to God is not at all like “hedging your bets” and trying to play both ends against the middle. No, to me, getting to Heaven is secondary to obeying God’s commandments, which always comes first. And that’s what i concern myself with, being a faithful and loyal servant. Not because i want to go to Heaven, but because i love God.
Luke Chapter 19
AND Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchæus, which was the
chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the
press, because he was little of stature.
4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him:
for he was to pass that way.
5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and
said unto him, Zacchæus, make haste, and come down; for to day I
must abide at thy house.
6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was
gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
8 And Zacchæus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the
half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing
from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house,
forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was
11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable,
because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the
kingdom of God should immediately appear.
12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to
receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds,
and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying,
We will not have this man to reign over us.
15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received
the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto
him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how
much every man had gained by trading.
16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten
17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast
been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five
19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which
I have kept laid up in a napkin:
21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up
that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee,
thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking
up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at
my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound,
and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given;
and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away
27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over
them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
28 ¶ And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to
29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his
30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at
your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat:
loose him, and bring him hither.
31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say
unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had
said unto them.
33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto
them, Why loose ye the colt?
34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon
the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the
mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to
rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that
they had seen;
38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:
peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto
him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these
should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
41 ¶ And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day,
the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a
trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within
thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because
thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold
therein, and them that bought;
46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer:
but ye have made it a den of thieves.
47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the
scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were
very attentive to hear him.
Why do people eat glycerides in peanut butter and such? It’s not food.
Bacteriophages ccan change your DNA. Don’t get shots! and be careful what you eat.
