. WHY was the temple built? for worship.
. WHERE does this worship take place? within us individually, as we worship Him alone. within us corporately when we gather together in His name, to worship Him together. (we don’t have to be in the same room or the same city or the same state or the same nation in order to gather together in His name to worship Him. when we fall in Love with Him all over again, when He becomes our First Love, as He restores His worship pattern, we will worship Him in every nation, tribe, kindred, and tongue and the more so as the day darkens around us…together! OH! His glory will cover the whole earth as the waters cover the sea!!! the heathen nations are not the only thing going global!!!)
