Daniel 8: 11 Yea, he magnified [himself] even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily [sacrifice] was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given [him] against the daily [sacrifice] by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain [saint] which spake, How long [shall be] the vision [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
Mar 13: 14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
I believe that these verses refer to a future time, more specifically the time of the Antichrist, or the one who is instead of Christ. It is a time in where the third temple is rebuilt and the sacrificial system, that has been dormant since the destruction of the second Temple in 70 AD, is constructed. The Jews already have created the instruments that are required for the temple service. They also have the stones ready for the building of the third temple all that is needed for them to proceed is permission to do so. However, herein lies the block, that I believe is a supernatural one. Let me explain.
The temple mount is the site of the third holiest place in Islam. Is this a coincidence, or is it another in the seemingly endless moves in the cosmic chess match between two unequally yoked players. In other words it is a very deliberate move by the fallen one to ensure that prophecy will not be fulfilled and thus, the Most High God is a liar. How can the Jews build the temple when it is a hot-button issue with Moslems, as when Ariel Sharon set foot unannounced on the Temple Mount, he set off the second Intifada! As we heard last week with the rhetoric from Mahmoud Abbas, in his mind, Palestine is what is now the whole of Israel. In other words, as I posted earlier, Palestine is to be Juden Free, or cleared of all its Jews….
There are those who believe that these scriptures have already been fulfilled and that the Jews are not Israel, and the church has inherited the promises of Israel. However, there is not one place in all of scripture that says this, in fact it’s just the opposite. What we see is that the Jews have been gathered back into the land – Ezekiel 37 – and that now, there is a longing among many Jews, to construct the third temple. We see from the passage in Daniel that at some point in the newly constructed Temple, the AC takes away the daily sacrifice and sets himself up to be worshipped. I believe that the prize is the temple and the goal of the Fallen One is to set his man, the AC in the newly constructed temple to be worshipped as God! This is what he has wanted ever since his initial rebellion way back in the recesses of time. I believe that we are headed into this time and it is the known as, The Time of Jacob’s Trouble, also called the Tribulation. It is a time unlike any other on the earth and I believe we are closer than we think to it.
The third temple will be rebuilt and the man who cuts the deal to allow the Jews to build it is none other than the AC himself. I believe that the prophecy of the Bible is 100% accurate. Thus, this temple will be rebuilt and it will be one of the last great signs before the coming of the Lord.
Recently I have received a rash of emails concerning comet Elenin. While we need to look for the signs in the heavens and keep track of them, the place to watch is Israel. All of the last days prophecies happen there. It’s all about the 70th week of Daniel and the coming of the lawless one, the man of sin, the AC. Messiah was cut off, just like prophecy stated he would be and thus, this 70th week remains open, yet to be fulfilled at some future point in time. God’s word is true and it will come to pass just like He stated thousands of years ago….
