Jerusalem Temple
(Revelation 21.22)
Page 303

"I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple." (Revelation 21.22)✞

City Jerusalem

The Tabernacle in the WildernessThe Revelation writer John of Patmos laid down a unique feature of the Revelation Jerusalem, the city of God. In it, there was no "Jerusalem temple" at all! This was amazing when we considered how precious the Temple was to the Jews. But we have already noted that the city was built in the shape of a perfect cube, indicating that it was in itself the replacement for the "Holy of Holies." It needed no "Jerusalem temple" because the presence of God was continuously there.✞

Three Essential Elements

Jerusalem Mount and MosqueBuildings did not make a Church or a Temple anyway! There were three essential elements that made a centre of worship, a church building or a temple. They are Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and Christian believers. Without any one of these three there can be no Church. Without these, no gathering of people and no building is a real Church. Without these three no place can be called a place of Christian worship.✞
