The Temple of Christ Within Us Introduction

This article is based around a video broadcast on YouTube by Bill Donahue called Driving Out The Money Changers The Temple of Christ within us uses the scripture of Matthew supported by other books of the Bible to emphasise that Christ Consciousness is an internal spiritual awakening which has nothing to do with religion, Christianity or external doctrines. 

Matthew 21 : 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,


Interpretation :

What is the Temple of God ? Lets look at :

1st Corinthians 3 : 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

So in Matthew 21 : 12 Jesus is not going into a church he is going within himself. This is an INTERNAL spiritual journey.

What is  being cast out in our temple within ? It is the lower consciousness, that which holds us back spiritually. We begin to have new desires for spiritual fulfilment and peace. The lower desires are a bottomless pit which is referenced in the Book of Revelations and refers to our never ending desires associated with the mind.  

Ultimately desire comes from thought and so when we meditate on the inner light and sound it casts out thought.

Doves = symbolize purity. They fly which translates to the Higher Consciousness of Man. They are white = virgin mind or (empty mind) = no thought.

Temple of Christ Within

But in the above verse we need to consider that the doves are being SOLD.


Christ overturned the tables of Doves = spirituality can never be sold for gain. We cannot barter with spirit, it can only be received and we need a humility and openness for this. So praying for money, material gain, gain in society is like selling doves and Christ wants no part in this process.

Temple of Christ Within

In context Christ consciousness is coming in and disconnecting us from thought and society and all these attachments and desires. 

We can now look at further scripture to glean more information about the temple which is US:


1st Kings 6 : 7And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.

Stone = natural made by nature/ God and is strong = HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS.

Brick = man made from mud. Comes out of the lowest part of the earth and represents LOWER CONSCIOUSNESS. It is made by man. Everything of brick in the Bible falls apart e.g. the Tower of Babel. This is because it represents the lower nature of man who always lets him down.


These two are symbolic throughout the Bible. In the above verse the house (temple) was made of Stone.

However, this house was not built by any tools and so it was built in SILENCE and so we build our Temple of God within through the silence of mediation.


1st Kings 6  : 8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.

Door to middle chamber on right side = right side or spiritual side of man, right side of the brain. 

Winding stairs = winding motion of the KUNDALINI as it goes up the spine.

Temple of Christ Within

Into the third (Heaven) = stage of AIR (spirit, no thought, beyond the mind) see article on Greek Levels of Consciousness


Hebrews 10 : 19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

Holiest = middle chamber on the right side in HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS which is reached by no thought through meditation.


Lucifer means ‘bright star’ and it has 5 points representing the 5 senses. He fell and became Satan. Jesus had the 5 wounds on the cross( hands, feet, side) and so his star is raised as he goes beyond the body.

This crucifixion happens in Golgotha which means skull which is explained fully in the articles on the Crucifixion.

As a child we have 5 bones that fuse into one and they are called the SACRUM.

SACRUM means the Holy Bone or Place which is where the Kundalini resides.

Temple of Christ Within

Above the sacrum is the SOLAR Plexus = place of the Sun which is surrounded by the 12 sympathetic nerves = 12 signs of the Zodiac the same way the 12 disciples surround Jesus.



Matthew 21 : 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

So back to the original verse Jesus went into the temple of God :

Den of thieves = temple(head) is full of lower consciousness which robs us of our spirituality. Our lower mind and emotions distract us and justify anything so that they rule our actions. 

The analogy of thieves and robbers is also seen in the following verse :

John 10: 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

ALL  = church , government , religion,  everybody ! Any time anyone puts anything into our mind it is robbery because it is from the carnal mind and not subject to the Law of God as we seen in the verse below.


John 10 : 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.



Hebrews 3 : 6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

whos house are we = Christ’s house is OUR House, so the Temple of God is within us as it is within Christ.

Prayer = in its highest sense is a communion with God where we leave thoughts/the mind behind.

Prayer can never be done with the mind and we can see this from the next verse :

Romans 8 : 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

The following verse describes how Jesus wants to bring everybody to the Father or God regardless of their beliefs. He does not want religion which divides one against the other. 

John 10 : 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

sheep = followers

not of this fold = Buddhists, people of other beliefs and faiths, 

one fold = unity of all those who reach higher consciousness where individuality is dissolved

one shepherd = all see the one reality of divinity


Matthew 21 : 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

Blind and lame = metaphorical description of those who are blind to the light of Christ or Higher Consciousness in the temple (third eye) within.

lame can walk = walk a different type of life connected to the spirit within.
