For those of you that have a futurist perspective (I’m not sure if my terminology is correct). Something similar to the Left Behind series, details as to whether its pre-trib, post-trib, mid-trib etc. aren’t the point here of this post. (I didn’t know anything but pre-trib rapture my whole life and thought people were crazy for believing anything else)
How do you rectify the whole end time scenario with the fact that:
1 Co 6:19, 3:16 say: you are the temple of the Holy Spirit
Acts 7:48, 17:24 say: God does not dwell in temples built with human hands
Mark 14:58 ‘I will destroy this temple made with hands and in three days build another not made with hands.’”
Eph 2:22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
1 Pet 2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
The whole “end-time” scenario is centered around a literal stone temple being built, and a literal idol being set up in the HOH, the abomination of desolation by a literal anti-christ.
If the above is true that God does not dwell in human built temples, then how can the temple be defiled? Even if people build a literal temple in Jerusalem, God does not dwell there as spoken in Acts. If God doesn’t dwell there, then why would He care about a literal idol being set up there?
