The Temple

The most holy have called out to the Lord Lord we have assembled the best engineers We are with our hands gonna build A temple to the sky With the strongest walls to withstand any storm We have the best architects That will put idols on the outside Doors and corners to resist evil It will be as beautiful as a museum inside Many will come to see and admire with their eyes Surely you would not have to walk far To come and dwell with us We only have one concern Would you like it if we Played loud music and danced around Or be still and sing a hymn It is by God's Grace,Mercy, and Love He has not kicked earth as a soccer ball For there is nothing with our hands We can build to satisfy the Lord Heaven is his throne And earth is his footstool God sent his son And watched him die a criminals death The only temple that pleases the father Is his creation man And those that believe his son came and died and rose again in 3 days and defeated death For when we believe and call out For God to save us He will clean out the inside Then the outside will begin to show Jesus came so that He might come and dwell in the hearts And put the laws in our mind He wants to be revealed In the temple He has created without hands But with the spirit of fire That circumsizes the flesh from man And gives a new body That by his grace He might make us acceptable To the Father

If the heart is not clean then clean outside body has no meaning. Temple resides in heart. In that temple God rests. Excellent poem read from you. Thanks

There is no other temple more pleasing to God than human mind ! He wishes to dwell in our hearts. So we have to keep our body and mind clean of all blemishes. A meaningful poem well constructed! May God bless you dear Stephen
