I understand that the body is our Temple of the Holy Spirit.
19 “Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
21 “But He was speaking of the temple of His body”
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16:”Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
17:”If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
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?”
2 Corinthians 6:16:”And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said” I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
I understand Jesus Christ is the foundation by which we grow in a holy temple in the Lord.
18:”For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.”
19:”Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,”
20:”having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,”
21:”in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows in a holy temple in the Lord,”
22:”in whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.”
I understand that God does not dwell in temples made with hands.
Acts 7:46-50, also Acts 17:24-25
46:”who found favor before God and asked to find a dwelling for the God of Jacob.”
47:”But Solomon built Him a house.”
48:”However, the Most High does not dwell in temples made with hands, as the prophet says:
49:Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? Says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest?”
Let me ask perhaps a more clear, better phrased question: Do not the following describe a physical building?
KJV 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 "3.Let no one deceive you by any means: for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition. 4. Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."
1:”And there was given to me a reed like unto a rod: and the angle stood, saying rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.”
2:”But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city under foot for forty-two months.”
