After this I looked, and I saw in heaven the temple—that is, the tabernacle of the covenant law—and it was opened
After Israel sings the song of Moses and giving God full glory to destroy the Egyptian army, Moses took them to Mount Sinai for worship (Exodus 19 and 20). God told the children of Israel, His ten Commandments, a re-introduction that is how to obey Him. So many people believe this is the first time God gave His people commandments, but not true. In Genesis 2:2-3, God blesses the seventh day and makes it holy. That is the 4th Commandment. In Genesis 26:5, Holy Bible says Abraham kept God’s commandments, so the Lord has always had law and doesn’t matter what the Antichrist teaches (2 John 1:5-8). The ten commandments were on two stone tablets and God asked Moses to make an ark, a golden box, and place the commandment inside. Then God, asks Moses to make a tabernacle, but not any, but on that look just like the one in heaven, the same one, the apostle John is seen in Revelation 15:5 (Exodus 25-30). God was happy with the tabernacle, but when King David felt like honoring God, he wanted to replace the tabernacle that was a tent, and build a stone temple (2 Samuel 7). God wouldn’t allow David to do it, but his son, Solomon did, (1 Kings 6-1 to Kings 8). Israel wasn’t keeping it part of God’s covenant, so God allowed Israel to invade the temple destroy and the Ark of the Covenant disappears and is still missing. Years before Jesus the Messiah was to be born, God had put His plan for the second temple to be built. It was the king of Persia, Cyrus and he wasn’t even an Israelite (Ezra 1:1-4). Even if the second temple was being built, it was until King Herod used his royal power to have it completed. Unlike the first time, it did not have the ark of the covenant in it, cause it’s still missing. Jesus went to the second temple and got very upset, saying don’t make His house a den of thieves, the religious leaders were upset, Jesus for causing a scene at the temple. So the Jewish leaders ask Jesus, who gives the authority to say, don’t what can happen in God’s temple. Jesus says destroy this temple, meaning His body, and He will raise it in three days.
John 2:18 The Jews then said to Him, “What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” 21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 22 So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
Even if the religious Jewish leader were teachers of God’s word, they really did not know what Jesus meant, but they didn’t believe He was the Son of God, either. After the Jewish had rejected the Cornerstone, Jesus, having Him nailed to cross, the Lord once again, allowed Roman to destroy the second temple. The technical Jews, still to this day, pray at the remaining wall of the second temple, and many Jews consider it holy when it never was and will never be. The apostle Paul was Pharisee Priest, and he knew the tabernacle very well and he also knew the spirit of God. Paul says if the Spirit of God lives in you, then your body is the temple of God.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought for a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Unlike the second temple that was built by King Herod, the temple that John sees in heaven actually has the ark of the covenant and God’s holy law. Why is the tabernacle with God’s law in it, open when John can see it in heaven?
1 Corinthians 6:2 Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves? 3 Don’t you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life.
Scripture says it is the believers of God’s word, the will judge, and the angels. So that by seeing the whole law, they will know why they do not enter the kingdom of God or His house. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I, Samuel H.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
