God has a beautiful design for our temples

Each one of us is a temple of God, and He designed a purpose driven plan for our lives. God’s perfect call for your life. Every architect work on design, and God’s design is the scroll of your life.

There was a day when the enemy had legality, either through trauma, sin or generational iniquity, to enter into our temples and trade the God-given fragrances and purposes for our lives for the family idols and plans. Our God-given scrolls were teared, and that part was traded for the family demonic scroll.

That dark scroll came with voices, destinies, mantles and a dark anointing to kill, steal and destroy.

Throughout life people fight and try to be set free from these family idols that are written on our scrolls. It comes with a lot of pain and destruction.

Psalm 74:3-7 “Lift up your feet to the perpetual desolations. The enemy has damaged everything in the sanctuary. Your enemies roar in the midst of Your meeting place. They set up their banners for signs. They seem like men who lift up axes among the thick trees. But now they break down its carved work, all at once, with axes and hammers. They have set fire to Your sanctuary. Thy have defiled the dwelling place of Your name to the ground.”

The noises inside of our temples are many times our fleshly ideas, human effort and inner fighting in our spirit hearts.

I look at the first temple that God designed and build for Himself on earth. Nobody had to try to do anything out of their own ‘self’. God specified the whole design in detail and gave it to David by His Spirit and David passed it on to his son Solomon. God’s given design and purpose for our lives are inside our human spirit. So when you do not live out of the spirit, you live out of ‘self’.

Solomon’s temple in all its glory was a foreshadowing of what would become God’s new temple build by living stones – you and me! We became the dwelling place of Holy Spirit.

But I see that till this day, the dark scrolls of the family generational tree are also passed on from one generation to another. That become the pattern of the temple, and the fragrance that comes out of such a temple is filled with the smell of ‘self’.

Darkness and light cannot live together in one temple and soon war breaks out – who will control the city? What scroll will be read and lived by? Who will use the mind – darkness or light? God’s scroll for your life, or the dark familiar scroll? That scroll was many a time traded in the womb. And the child lived with the dark mantle over part of his mind, and that darkness gives a fragrance – release a sound of kill, steal and destroy.

In Solomon’s temple, the war broke out and there was a battle. They entered into the Holy of Holies in the temple and traded the fragrance oil that were used for burned offerings to YHVH for their family idols.

When we have that demonic scroll(marker) on our lives, the truth cannot enter in our hearts. The lies inside of us becomes a stronghold on our lives and that controls us. These markers take the steering wheel of your life. We have to break the markers off with prayer and fasting.

When you suffered from trauma or stress, your blood chemicals are disturbed because of the ‘marker’ that covers the blood. On that epigenetic marker are scrolls with voices and plans that lead you. These voices seal off the voice of Holy Spirit in our lives. We need to ask Holy Spirit to help us to trade the dark scrolls back for our God-given plans.

The same with our blood – when the marker is on our blood it keeps the body from absorbing the supplements we take. It just shows us that we need to break off all the dark seals to live a healthy life – body, soul and spirit.

Psalm 46:3, 6 “Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.”

I truly believe we are entering a season where we will see mountains shake, the sea will roar, difficulties will be around us, people will be troubled and the world markets will take the lead to guide us into these times. Read the times, and look around you. We must be like the sons of Issachar, who had understanding of the times (1 Chron 12:32). God will through all this be with His children. As His Kingdom will come and His will be done in our lives.

But we need to listen very close what to do and how to do it. Most of all, like never before, we need to get rid of that demonic scroll that are read through our lives.

1 Peter 3:15 “Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who ask you a reason for the hope that is in you”.

The nations will rage in war and fear will be around us all. But the children of God will be quiet in confidence – because they know their God. And they know that He is going to do great exploits through them.

We will have to go through the same troubles, but we will fear not. God will lead us step by step as our dependencies are on Him alone. We have chosen to let God be the Lord of our lives.

We will continue to fill our lamps with fresh oil and we will carry a fresh fragrance of life.

There will be times that we will not be able to preach anymore. It will be the light in your eyes, and the fragrance of love that people will see. It will be the scroll of hope that they will read through your life. The testimony of how God came through for you today, the testimony of His touch and His provision today.

For us to live that scroll, we need to get the old out and learn to be still and know that He is God. Let’s give God all our struggles, trials and pain. Ask Him to trade it for your God-given destiny and scroll for your life. Allow Him to bring in His master craftsman, Holy Spirit, to do a glorious work in your life – all for His glory.

When Solomon’s temple was completed, the glory of God came so powerfully that nobody could stand in His presence. All the old scrolls could not be read, all the arguments failed, and all human ‘self’ died when God took His seat in the human spirit heart.

This way we become partakers of the divine life in God in Christ Jesus.

I know that I know that time is here like never before, to get rid of any other darkness and scrolls that run through your life.

Let’s do what we have to do and be prepared!

I praise God how He taught me through the journey with Aldo. I think many a times that if you would really know what is on man and how the god of this world blinded our eyes – you would be in shock. I always try to bring this message in gentle matter. But God keep on prompting me, “Retah, don’t be ashamed, use your life so that people can learn from what you went through. I want My Bride to be spotless (without the dark scrolls) and in love with Me. I am coming for a Spirit bride, a warrior bride and a servant bride – be ready and train yourself in godliness”.

God bless you my dear friend. And thank you that we can learn together, grow together and walk this journey together.

We are doing fine. Some days I am overwhelmed with what God is revealing, but I rejoice that He leads us all step by step as we are moving forward.

Run the race of faith.

Retah and family.
