2023 Day 236 – Jeremiah 51-52

Jeremiah chapter 52 describes the destruction of Jerusalem.  We are told many of the details about the temple being destroyed, down to even the day that it happened.  “In the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month—that was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon—Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard, who served the king of Babylon, entered Jerusalem.  And he burned the house of Jehovah, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great house, burned he with fire.” (Jeremiah 52:12-13)  As terrible as it was for this building to be destroyed, God’s power was not affected.  “But it was Solomon who built a house for him.  Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made by hands, as the prophet says,” (Acts 7:47-48)  Each of us have a temple of God that we need to protect and honor.  “Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.” (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)
