Three Temple Ages Make A Plan 

The plan of God connects the Old Testament to the New Testament with a unique pattern in the Biblical record. Christ's people written of by the prophets in the Old Testament are the same people of the New Testament. Yet, we New Testament people are unaware of who we are. We are not gentiles, nor are we Jews. "As for you, Ezekiel, son of man, describe to the House of Israel [this excludes the House of Judah, the Jews1] the temple that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and they shall measure the pattern.” [Eze. 43:10]. Our LORD's command to Ezekiel is directed towards the same House of Israel in the New Testament to whom Christ was only sent. [Mat. 15:24]. It's the same House of Israel that Christ only sent the apostles to [Mat. 10:5, 6]. And it's the same House of Israel the apostle Peter addressed his remarks to on the first day of Christianity in Jerusalem. [Acts 2:36-38]. So chances are, unless you are a reader of articles on this site, you've never even heard of the House of Israel and the pattern of God's plan. Yet, it permeates the entire Biblical record with all the books in their original ordained order. We could say, it's a key reason why we have the Bible. Knowledge of the temple is of vital importance for Christians because our Lord Jesus Christ "who truly was foreordained before the foundation of the world [Greek, kosmos] ... was made known in these last times for you." [1 Pet. 1:20; Eze. 34:30]. This was the plan for the House of Israel all along. We are to be the temple of God in the Christian age.

The Genesis Birthright, The Blind Man’s Elephant

Our story is non-fiction. While the names have changed, no one is innocent. And it is far more intriguing and meaningful in our every day lives than any fiction. Close to a hundred million copies of this story are sold every year. Because the body of this story is scattered in the pages of the Biblical record in bits and pieces like a puzzle, we are oblivious to its film noir essence not unlike a person who is shocked to find out that their quiet next-door neighbor has a cellar full of buried bodies. We are about to put those bits and pieces together. We will form a very clear picture that is of great importance for us today. And we will discover that everything is not as it appears.

One of the foundational tenets of ethical theological study is allowing the Biblical record to define itself, which it does when we permit it to do so. This is why the Old Testament is so important in helping us understand the New Testament. Both testaments provide context to each other. Lacking this awareness, one of the basic traps Christians and Christianity get into is redefining the word of God, thereby creating fake doctrine. And when we redefine the word of God, we change the truth into a lie, setting in motion all sorts of confusing and crazy notions.
