When was the first Temple really torn down....... not in AD 70 as many sem to think
Nor either when Jesus was crucified even though He was the cornerstone because until the last Apostle was taken out of the way by being killed or dying (Until "he who letteth let", that translated means to hold to and guard the truth) the Temple still stood being made up of those who were part of the foundation with Him within them...... or as how Nathan pointed out and agreed upon by others in the preceding pots above was as Jesus said of Peter, (translated means piece of a rock) "on this rock I build my church",....... it was not torn down in one instance but will it be built as one instance?....... Malachi seems to have indicated that it would"
Mal 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
Some say the above verse refers to the baptism of the Holy Sprit but the heart of man never became the Temple of the Lord until AFTER one is baptized in the Holy Spirit........ before that it was a only a place for "lucifer man of sin worship".
