Change In Plans
1 Corinthians 13:8 -  Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

    I want to talk to you about 3 topics which is in this verse, prophecies, tongues, and knowledge.  Let's start with prophecies, unless the prophecy comes from God, then the prophecy is not a true prophecy.  A prophet can't see into the future.  This is also true to fortunetellers, most of mans's prophecies come from satan, and not from God.  Satan can not tell the future, but the good God in heaven can, and has in the bible.  To see an example of a true prophet then read from the old testament book of Daniel, or other books like Isaiah, or Ezekiel.
    The second topic is tongues, or speaking in tongues.  On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit gave the apostles the ability to speak in tongues.  This was given, so the apostles could talk to more people in there own languages.  Tongues have ceased now a days, because its easy to learn different languages in school.  The Holy Spirit had to teach the apostles the different languages that was not normally used in Israel at that time.
    The third and last topic in this verse is knowledge.  I believe that Paul was talking about the knowledge that we get everyday from civilization, news, education, etc.  Knowledge comes from satan, if we want any types of smarts it should be from wisdom from the Bible, God's word.
    Personal observation, God's wisdom comes in two different areas of the Bible, the apostles wrote for the Jewish people at the time, about the true Messiah Jesus Christ.  Paul wrote the second part for the church and how to live in Grace.  Grace is a period that God gave his true believers, since Paul started writing his epistles.  Not every Christian believes in Paul's teaching, because they don't believe in a period of grace.  I guess they believe that they have to do more in there life to receive God's grace.  All a person has to do to gain God's wisdom, is by reading the Bible.

God On Earth

1 Corinthians 6:19 - Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

John 14:2 - In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

When a person truly excepts Jesus as their savior and are saved, then the Holy Spirit comes into our spirit and starts to take over our personal spirit.  While we are growing in the Holy Spirit, so he can take over our old spirit.  Our bodies belong to God, yes when Jesus died on the cross he bought back our bodies so the Holy Spirit can live in us, and take care of us until we reach heaven when we die.

In John 14:2 Jesus talks about many mansions in his fathers house.  I would think that God's mansions are our personal bodies where the Holy Spirit lives.  Jesus is preparing our bodies so that 100% of God can live in us at all times.  When the Holy Spirit comes into our bodies to live He is working to change us to be like Jesus in everything we do.  During this process God is living in side of us, with everything we do, or everywhere we go God is with us day and night.

Let's think this out for a minute, when God created the heavens and the earth and put Adam and Eve on earth, God Himself was walking with them in the garden.  God 's spirit was living inside of Adam and Eve, like God planned it to be.  When satan came to tempt Eve, life in the garden all changed.  When Eve took the temptation, satan lived inside of  Adam and Eve and the earth so he could do what he wanted for a short time.  God on the other hand had to leave the earth and take care of Adam and Eve from heaven.  Satan had his way for about 4,000 years of destroying God's own property.  After 4,000 years Jesus came on the picture to die on the cross and to buy back all of God's creation from satan.  At that time the Holy Spirit came to live in all true believers that got saved for God to own and take care of again.  All of this happened so God himself could walk the face of the earth and take care of it the way he planned for it to happen.

When God lives in a human being that he created, then God is walking the face of the earth, and he is in control, then and only then will God's true plans will take place.  Once and for all we will live in God and God will live in us.  We are God's mansions here on his house, called earth.

I want everyone to know that I was a true temple for God to use.  God did the writing I just did the typing on the computer.  This is what is meant when the bible states that we live in God and God lives in us.  I hope that this post will help more people live in God so God can live in all of us.
