Half the Public Wants to See Holy Temple Rebuilt
I have stated publicly, numerous times that at some point the Jews in Israel will rebuild the temple. There are many who do not believe that this will ever happen. There are those who declare that the church is the new Israel, which is replacement theology which I believe is a grave error. There are others who insist that it is not a literal temple that will be rebuilt. At some point, as I commented on last week, all of this will be self-evident as we watch events unfold.
The link to the above article states that about 42% of the Israeli’s believe that the Temple will be rebuilt. There are those who are more adamant in their pursuit of the rebuilding of the Temple and want to start rebuilding it. One such group, The Temple Mount Faithful, declares that it has the corner-stone to the new temple and wants construction to start immediately.
There is a dilemma here as Rabbi’s know that they cannot begin construction of the Temple without the Ashes of the Red Heifer. According to Robert Reiland, the ashes may have been found by Vendal Jones, an archeologist. The remains of these ashes go back to the time of Moses and must be used to consecrate the new Temple. The Jews take all of this very, very seriously. Some Christians dismiss the Red Heifer ceremony and the literal rebuilding of the third temple as “nonsense.” I would caution those who are of this ilk that they would do well to take the prophecies that tell us that in the last days the temple will be rebuilt and that the Anti Christ, the one who is instead of Christ, will set himself up in the wing of the temple to be worshipped.
Remember Yashua/Jesus tells us that:
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
There is the Preterist view that all of this happened in 70 AD so that these current events, of which I write, is moot, but the trouble with this view is that there is no progression of events afterward. Where is the millenial kingdom?
However, what we do learn from history is that Jews were scattered throughout the earth and that they remained there until the beginning of the end-times, 1948, when Israel became a nation in one day. At some point in time, and I believe it is in the near future, we will this prophecy fulfilled, i.e. the Anti Christ will stand in the holy place, in the newly constructed temple.
Until the 2o century, the rebuilding of the temple was considered a non-event, something that would never happen. One of the main obstacles was the Moslem Dome of the Rock, which sits on the Temple mount. However, research by Asher Kaufman has postulated that the first and second Temple was not in that location. Thus, in the Kaufman analysis, the Temple stood about 100 yards away from the present structure. All of this to say, that at some point we will see the rebuilding of the Third Jewish Temple on the Temple mount without destroying the Dome of the Rock. There will most likely be a wall that is set up to separate the two structures.
In closing today’s post, I would also point out that the one person who cuts the deal to allow the Jews to rebuild their temple is non other than the Anti Christ. So we watch and we wait and know that at some point all of this will become self evident….
The bottom line is this, when we see headlines that point to prophecy we should look up because His return cannot be far off!
