Where is the temple of God? The Babylonian prophets assumed that "He does not dwell among men" - but they found out He did indeed dwell in Daniel. Yet in Daniel's time, the Spirit of the Lord was normally in a temple building. The people of God were commanded to go up to Jerusalem to worship. In fact, it was because they built "high places" elsewhere in Israel that Daniel and his friends were carried away to Babylon in the first place. Y'shua changed all that. Through his life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension, those who believe have been given the power to become God's children. Now the Ruach Ha Kodesh, the Holy Spirit, dwells in us. Paul tells us we are "the temple of the Holy Ghost". As this is true, we can worship there anytime, any place.
