God's Temple - Poem by Richard Merrell

Your body is God's temple
Where dwells the Spirit of the Lord,
If indeed Yehsua be in you?
Abiding presence of the Lord.
But if God's Spirit is NOT in you
Then this I now you relate
You are illegitimate -
A stinking reprobate.


But should the Spirit of Yeshua
Dwell in you and you are sure;
Then be not joined to the harlot
Or the adulterous whore.

'cause you are God's temple
The Messiah in you does dwell;
But if you live in fornication
God will cast you into hell!
