Q. I have been wondering, after reading many of your articles, do you think that the temple could be built before the church is raptured?
The reason I ask this is because I have come to understand that Christ inhabits the temple … but He is already inhabiting us (the believers) could it be possible that He won’t inhabit the temple again until He raptures us?
A. For the duration of the Church Age, we are the Temple of God (1 Cor. 3:16). The coming Temple won’t be built until sometime in the early part of Daniel’s 70 th week, well after the Church is gone. And Jesus won’t enter it until after He establishes His Kingdom on Earth following the 2nd Coming.
