This Temple Builders Ministry site’s primary purpose is:

  1. To promote the “Temple Builders” message—a message that ministers to the people of God who have come to a desert place—a desert place that God designs for our breaking, but also a desert place whereby God is teaching us His ways.

    The Temple Builders message erects you as God’s last day temple in the earth, yet many times it first destroys edifices that do not resemble the plans designed by the Great Architect.

    The Temple Builders message is a wilderness message that calls all of us to rise higher in our walk with Jesus, and to ascend to His highest calling for our life.
  2. To bring application of the present truth/finished work message when most messages seem more like theory than what is relevant to the individual. The Temple Builders message applies the grace of God needed to connect with those hungering for deeper truth.

Temple Builders Ministry

Temple Builders Ministry is an organization for the ministries of John Robert Lucas. John Robert Lucas is the author of the book Temple Builders: The High Calling that was published by Shofar Publishing in 2004.

In 1990, Mr. Lucas created an online bulletin board system (BBS). The BBS was called Temple Builders and eventually became TempleBuilders.com in 1996. The original site was used to publish online drafts of the Temple Builders book. Users of the site provided feedback that was incorporated into subsequent drafts.

Eventually the book was divided into three books, and was successfully published in 2004. The book continues to speak loudly to followers of Christ who are marching to a certain beat–attune to a certain trumpet sound.

The vision for Temple Builders Ministry is to finish publishing the Temple Builders message, and ensure that the message is heard by all those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
