1 HABITATION OF GOD “FASHIONED IN CHRIST BY THE GOD OF ALL GRACE” (Eph 2:19-22) The HolyTemple represents the workmanship of God developing the entire body of Christ So that we will be prepared for a time of rest/peace for the people of God Hopefully we are stones, pillars…being prepared now (after the types)

2 HABITATION OF GOD From the beginning God had a purpose (Num 14:21;Isa 45:18) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world… Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will (Eph 1:4-5) Many types relating to this Holy Temple: Starting with the Cherubim/Flaming sword

3 “TO KEEP THE WAY” The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden (Gen 2:8) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep (preserve) the way of the tree of life (Gen 3:24) Cherubim on the east side? The way back is between the Cherubim’s, through the sword (AWAKE O SWORD Zech 13:8)

4 THE WAY OF THE EAST? Cherubim on the east side? Joshua circumcises Israel east of the promised land at GILGAL (rolling away sins a wheel Joshua 5) Joshua meets captain of God’s host with a sword (holy ground near Jericho..on the east - Josh 5 ) Judah on east of camp (rising of sun) Elijah taken up in chariot of fire at Gilgal, east of Eden (2 King 2: 1-12) Ezekiel’s Cherubim at east gate at door of God’s house (Ezek 10:19) Glory of God of Israel came from way of the east (Ezek 43:1-5) Christ (sun of R) from Jericho to Jerusalem (Luke 19:1)

5 Burning Bush (a type of the holy temple) And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. (Exodus 3) “holy ground” (like later incident with Joshua) BUSH- FAMILY TREE Tree of LIFE (leaves for healing) Rev 22 Like a tree Psa. 1,Isa 65:22) Olive trees (Zec. 4, Rom 11) Vine/branches(John 15) Kingdom (mustard seed)

6 Burning Bush (a type of the holy temple) BUSH..Family tree (God’s people) FIRE – God (a consuming fire) dwelling in the bush HOLY GROUND …holy temple (no flesh and blood present) BUSH NOT CONSUMED (future age when branches are immortal)

7 Burning Bush (God manifestation) GOD’S YAHWEH NAME REVEALED I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.(Ex 3:6) Now that the dead are raised, even Moses showed at the bush (Luke 20:37-38) I AM THAT I AM …“I will be manifested in whom I will be manifested” GOD DWELLING IN HIS PEOPLE IN THE KINGDOM AGE

8 THE CHERUBIM (part of holy temple) First in Eden…and then in the tabernacle The tabernacle/camp also a type of holy temple ARK OF COVENANT, CHERUBIM WINGS ABOVE THE MERCY SEAT… “there I will meet with thee” Tabernacle..door facing the EAST side toward the rising sun..Judah (Num 2:3) Camp of Israel…by their standards (lion, ox, man, eagle?....Judah on the east side)

9 Solomon’s Temple And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.(2Sa 7:12-13) He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever… of his kingdom there shall be no end. WILL GOD INDEED DWELL IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS? (1 Kings 8:27, Acts 7 :48-49))

10 EZEKIEL’S CHERUBIM Multitudinous Christ A whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. …the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance..every one had four faces And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel.(Eze 10:10) LION, OX, MAN EAGLE, the same 4 faces as the standards (camp of Israel) Ezek 1:10

11 EZEKIEL’S TEMPLE ANOTHER TYPE OF THE COMING HOLY TEMPLE “House of prayer for all nations” The mountain of the house of the Lord (Mic 4:1-4) No Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts. (Zec 14) (TYPE OF) the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Rev 21:2)

12 OLIVE TREES CANDLESTICK ZECHARIAH’S VISION (awaked out of sleep-Zec 4) What are these two olive trees? Jews/Gentiles (Rom. 11:15-25) What are these branches? The oil? (word of God) The light? (Eyes of the Lord) The two anointed ones “By my Spirit” (Zec 4:6) Light for the Kingdom age…oil prepared ahead by those who have been blessed from all nations

13 I AM THE VINE YE ARE THE BRANCHES (John 15:1-8) Abide in me Bear fruit THE GOOD SHEPHERD AND THE FLOCK And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.(John 10:16) Other Types

14 God’s BUILDINGS NATURAL TYPES of the God’s Holy Temple (Eph 2) WILL GOD INDEED DWELL IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS? (1 Kin 8:27, Acts 7:47-48)

15 THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God (the body of Christ) And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone (Eph 2:19-20) Stones/pillars…prepared (1 Kings 6:7)

16 A CITY WITH FOUNDATIONS HOUSEHOLD OF GOD built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; (sacrifice of Christ) For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Cor 3:11) House Built on a rock/ WORD Fitly framed… GROWETH unto an holy temple in the Lord: (add to your FAITH)

17 BUILDING ON THE only sure FOUNDATION “YE ARE GOD’S BUILDING “(1 Cor 3) Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

18 SPIRITUAL HOUSEHOLD/CITY THROUGH FAITH he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.(Heb 11:10) But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.(Heb 11:16) For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith (Gal 5:5) For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith (Rom 4:13)

19 JERUSALEM ABOVE But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all (Gal 4:26) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn (Heb 12:22) A glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish (Eph 5:27) And they two shall be one flesh…This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Eph 5:31-32)

20 PREPARED AS A BRIDE The holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride (Rev 21:2) the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready….arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. (righteousness by grace through faith) The riches of His grace in the ages to come

21 THE HOLY CITY And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory(Eze 43:2) And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. (Rev 21:23-24)

22 REMEMBER GOD’S PURPOSE! The earth will be inhabited and filled with God’s glory All Nations will be Blessed! His people must glorify God by: Developing Godliness (“God – like” characteristics.) Manifesting Him (as Jesus did) God will dwell in His family tree……His building, the holy temple

23 HABITATION THROUGH SPIRIT In whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest (foretaste)of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.(Eph 1:13-14) In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.(Eph 2:21-22)

24 THE HOLY TEMPLE YE ARE THE TEMPLE Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1Co 3:16) bought with a price (1 Cor 6:17- 20).) APPLIES TO NATURAL BODY AND SPIRITUAL BODY OF CHRIST The tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them (Rev 21:3-4) I will be manifested..(bush) I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. (Rev 21:22-27)

25 HABITATION OF GOD THROUGH THE SPIRIT And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Rev 21, Psa.72:17-19))

26 QUESTIONS Name 3 prophetic types (pictures) What did the components of the burning bush represent? What did the lamp stand in the olive tree prophecy indicate?
