Today is Tuesday, 5 April in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Isaiah 66:1.
Thus says the LORD: ‘heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool. Where is the house that you will build me? And where is the place of My rest?Isaiah 66:1.
When you go to Acts 7:44-50 and Acts 17:24-28 you will see how Stephen and Paul reveals the dwelling place of God to us.
And in John 2:19-21, Jesus clearly states that His body is the templr of God.
In 2 Samuel 7:6 God Himself reveals that He does not dwell in a house that is built by human beings, rather he lives in tents and tabernacles.
And on hearing this people think that it is the church God was referring to, but in 2 Corinthians 5:1 the apostle Paul clearly states that this tents and tabernacles is his earthly house, i.e. the body, which he would soon give up so he could be able to gain Christ.
And Peter also shows that he will soon put off his own tabernacle, i.e. body; as the Lord Jesus showed him. (2 Peter 1:14)
And the scripture below helps us to understand better in Hebrews 9:1-5; that Jesus Christ came with the greater and more perfect tabernacle that was not made with human hands.
That was why he made that reference to our own bodies also:
You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priest-hood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ1 Peter 2:5.
Beloved, the only perfect house we can build for God is our body; and we can do that by keeping it pure for God to use it as His temple. (1 Corinthians 3:16).
Hope this bible verse of the day for today April 5 2022 helps you to realize that you are the chirch of God, and not that building you go for worship.
