Building His Temple by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Building His Temple by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

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 (Matthew 16:18).

In the Old Testament, there was the first
tabernacle, built by Moses, and later, a second
tabernacle that was built by Solomon. Then
there was the third one and this time, Herod built it, and
it was a magnificent temple.

Coming to the New Testament, the Lord Jesus
was the first temple. He said in John 2:19, referring to
Himself, “…Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up.” The second temple is you, for the Bible says
in 1 Corinthians 3:16, “Know ye not that ye are the
temple of God…?” Then, the third temple is the Church.

Just as it took Herod, a non-Jew, and the Jews
in his day, to build that third magnificent temple, it’s
taking the “Jews” and “Gentiles” that have come into
Christ to build this third temple—the Church. Each one
of us is responsible for building this third temple, the
present-day Church.

For every new soul you lead to Christ, you’re
adding another material in the building of this temple;
you’re beautifying God’s house. This is what our
sponsorship and distribution of Rhapsody of Realities,
and all our other outreaches around the world are
about! We’re building God’s temple. Hallelujah!

This is a job for every one of us; we’re
co-labourers with the Lord in building His temple: “For  we are labourers together with God…” (1 Corinthians
3:9). Take your service in the Gospel to a higher level.
Allow no distractions whatsoever. Take your mind away
from yourself. Think more about Him, and the
expansion, the growth, spread and influence of His
Kingdom.

He said in Matthew 6:33, “…seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.” He already made
everything you require for life and godliness available to
you (2 Peter 1:3). Therefore, focus all your energies and
passion on joining Him to build His Church, touching
and transforming lives around the world. Praise God!

CONFESSION
I’m not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it’s
the power of God unto salvation to everyone that
believes. I’m committed to the spread of the Gospel,
bringing men out of darkness into the glorious liberty
of the sons of God. I’m changing and transforming
lives every day, for the glory of Christ. Hallelujah!
