People are His Dwelling Place.

The Church that Jesus is building, has only one Builder and it has only one High Priest. The members of His Church have only one Father, these sheep have only one Shepherd and they hear and know His voice and follow only Him. And this Body has only one Head which directs, governs and controls it and if we are one with the Head, we are one with the Body, even if when not gathered together in buildings, this is the reason Church is life living seven days a week and not relegated to Sundays or event-driven-meetings. But, if we are not one with the Head, we are not one with the Body, even if we are gathered together in buildings we call church where living life is not what happens.

We ARE the temple of the Holy Spirit no matter where we are or who we are with. We are a part of the Body regardless of where our Head takes us! We are the children of God, born from above, members of God's Family. Our life source is not in rules, regulations or the rituals of religion, but from a vital relationship with the One who IS Life! "Do you not know that your body is the temple, the very sanctuary of God’s Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought with a price, purchased, paid for, and made His own. What agreement can there be between a temple of God and idols? For we ARE the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them and I will be their God, and they shall be My people." (1 Cor 6:19, 20 & 2 Cor 6:16).


People are now the living stones being built into the Temple of the Living God; Jesus said that He would build and assemble His called out ones together, this is something spiritual which cannot be built nor controlled by man. Men like conformity, we like to build with bricks instead of stones because we can make bricks be all the same shape and size so they are easy to fit together. We may make our own bricks of mud from this earth (by insisting on conformity or man-made "unity") and build with those bricks, but we may also end up building a religious tower of Babel to try to reach God ourselves. He will build and add to His City, not man. Living stones cannot be incorporated into a building, it won't work! His Temple, which He alone is building, is alive and well and victorious so that He, and He alone receives all the glory and honor for the work of His Spirit in us!
