“Behold the Man that is called The BRANCH . . . and He shall grow up out of His place (like a Root out of a dry ground) , and He shall build the temple of the LORD (John 2:19-21). Even He shall build the Temple of the LORD, and He shall bear the glory. And He shall sit and BE a Priest upon His throne . . . and the Counsel of peace (Ephesians 1:13-14) shall be between Them both !”
“I will shake all nations . . . and the Desire of all nations shall come. And I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts . . . !” Haggai 2:6-9

But because of sin, humanity ceased to be a temple for God . . . Darkened and defiled by evil, the heart of man no longer revealed the glory of the Divine One.”
