The Ancient Temple

Acts 17:24-28 "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are His offspring.' "

The ancient temple is one of our greatest clues to where we may discern the true presence of God in a world that is full of Satan's illusions. By reaching out for the truth we discover that, just as it was in the days of Paul, the true temple is not one that has been built by the hands of men, but by God.
