Did you know the Temple is Eden? When the Israelites built the Temple is was as if they carried Eden with them. Like Adam did in Eden the priests worked and tended the Temple. When Jesus came he called himself the Temple. When we come to Jesus in faith we are taste Eden, we are given back our true humanity. We can look forward to unending fellowship on The New Earth with Christ.
Let Us Go to the House of the Lord
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” 2 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together, 4 to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for[a] Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. 5 There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! “May they be secure who love you! 7 Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!” 8 For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, “Peace be within you!” 9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.
