The Jewish Temple Is Rebuilt       

The Signs of the Times    

   

The Jewish Temple Is Rebuilt



The temple has long played a prominent role in Jewish history. In fact, Israel has had three different temples.



The First Temple


David wanted to build the first temple for God, though it was not to happen, for David was disqualified for being a warrior. His son Solomon eventually built the temple (1 Kings 6—7; 2 Chronicles 3—4).

Like the tabernacle, Solomons temple had a Holy Place and a Most Holy Place. The Holy Place (the main outer room) contained the golden incense altar, the table of showbread, five pairs of lamp-stands, and utensils used for sacrifice. Double doors led to the Holy of Hohes, in which was found the ark of the covenant. The ark rested between two wooden cherubim angels, each standing ten feet tall. God manifested Himself in the Holy of Holies in a cloud of glory (1 Kings 8:10-11).



(This temple—the heart and center of worship for the kingdom of Judah—was eventually destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians in 587 B C. (586 B.C. to be exact - Keith Hunt)



The Second Temple



Following the Babylonian exile, many Jews returned to Jerusalem and constructed a smaller, leaner version of Solomons temple. King Cyrus of Persia had allowed them to return and rebuild the temple, and he sent along the temple vessels Nebuchadnezzar had looted.

The returned exiles started out well in 538 BC but soon ran out of steam. The prophets Haggai and Zechariah worked hard to encourage them, and the second temple was finally completed in 515 BC. However, it was not nearly as magnificent as Solomons temple (see Ezra 3:12). It had little of its former glory and was a dim reflection of the original. This temple was without the ark of the covenant and had only one seven-branched lampstand. The ark and Solomons ten lampstands were never recovered. This temple lasted about 500 years.



The Third Temple



Israel's third temple in Jerusalem was built by King Herod the Great. Herod believed this ambitious building program, which he began in 19 BC, would be a great way to earn favor with the Jews of his time (that is, his subjects) and impress the Roman authorities.

Completed in AD 6A, it was much larger and more resplendent (with more gold) than Solomons temple. It was an enormous, cream-colored structure that shone exceedingly bright during the day. It measured 490 yards (north to south) by 325 yards (east to west).

This magnificent temple was destroyed along with the rest of Jerusalem by Titus and his Roman warriors in AD 70—a mere six years after the project was completed. How ironic that those Herod sought to impress in Rome were the instigators of the temples destruction.



(WRONG  IN  THAT  NOT  ALL  OF  THE  TEMPLE  WAS  DESTROYED;  THE  PRESENT  WAILING  WALL  STANDING  TODAY,  WAS  PART  OF  THE  ORIGINAL  HEROD'S  TEMPLE.  THIS  WALL  WILL  YET  COME  DOWN  AT  THE  TIME  OF  THE  END  AND  SO  FULFIL  JESUS'  WORDS  OF  NOT  ONE  STONE  WILL  BE  LEFT  ON  ANOTHER;  IT  WAS  NOT  FULFILLED  IN  70  AD  - Keith Hunt)



The Tribulation Temple



Scripture reveals that yet another temple will be built during the tribulation period. In terms of prophetic chronology, there are a number of important factors.



(THERE  IS  NO  BIBLE  PROPHECY  THAT  STATES  SUCH  A  THINGS  AS  ANOTHER  TEMPLE  BEFORE  THE  MESSIAH  COMES  AGAIN;  THE  IDEA  COMES  ABOUT  BY  FALSE  UNDERSTANDING  OF  SOME  VERSES,  AND  READING  INTO  OTHER  VERSES  THINGS  JUST  NOT  THERE  AT  ALL,  AS  WELL  AS  NOT  SEARCHING  DEEP  ENOUGH  INTO  THE  SCRIPTURES,  WHICH  I  HAVE  DONE  AND  GIVEN  YOU  ON  MY  WEBSITE  -  Keith Hunt)



First and foremost is the prerequisite that Israel be back in her homelandas a nation. This has been a reality since 1948. The Jews have been streaming back to the holy land from around the world ever since (see Ezekiel 36—37). 



(A  WRONG  UNDERSTANDING  OF  EZ 36-37;  THE  PROPHECY  HERE  IS  THE  SAME  AS  ISAIAH  11....A  REGATHERING  OF  ISRAEL  AND  JUDAH  WHEN  JESUS  RETURNS  AND  NOT  BEFORE  -  Keith Hunt)



Obviously the Jewish temple cannot be rebuilt unless a reborn nation of Israel is in the land.


(THE  AUTHOR  AND  OTHERS  DO  NOT  TELL  YOU  THAT  THE  ORTHODOX   JEWS  TEACH,  ONLY  THE  MESSIAH  CAN  BUILD  THE  NEXT  TEMPLE  -  Keith Hunt)



Second, we know that the temple must be rebuilt at least by the middle of the seven-year tribulation because Jesus in the Olivet discourse warned of a catastrophic event that assumes the existence of the temple: "When you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains" (Matthew 24:15-16). This abomination of desolation is the desecration of the Jewish temple by the antichrist, who will set up an image of himself within the temple at the midpoint of the tribulation. The temple must be built by this time.



(FALSE  ONCE  MORE!  THE  AUTHOR  TELLS  YOU  WHAT  HE  AND  OTHERS  THINK  THIS  MEANS,  BUT  NOTICE  NO  SCRIPTURES   ARE  GIVEN  TO  BACK  UP  THIS  TEACHING;  THE  TEACHING  COMES  FROM  MISUNDERSTANDING  AND  A  WRONG  INTERPRETATION OF  DANIEL  9:27.  THE  BIBLE  INTERPRETS  ITSELF.  IT  WAS  LOOK  WHO  WAS  INSPIRED  TO  GIVE  THE  INTERPRETATION  OF  THIS  PROPHECY....."WHEN  YOU  SEE  JERUSALEM  SURROUND  BY  ARMIES,  KNOW  THAT  THE  DESOLATION  IS  AT  HAND [LUKE 21].  THE  DESOLATION  WILL  BE  BY  THE  ARMIES  OF  THE  "KING  OF  THE  NORTH"  MOVING  INTO  AND  AROUND  JERUSALEM [DANIEL 11:45  AND  INTO  CHAPTER 12].  IT  WILL  BE  A  DESOLATION  OF  JERUSALEM  BY  AN  ABOMINATION  OF  A  RESURRECTED  HOLY  ROMAN  EMPIRE  FROM EUROPE.  NOW  THAT  IS  THE  BILE  INTERPRETING  ITSELF  -  Keith Hunt)



It is significant that Jesus says this because just previously (in verses' 1-2), He positively affirmed that the great temple built by Herod (the Jewish temple of Jesuss day) would be utterly destroyed: "Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that -not be thrown down." This prophecy was literally fulfilled in AD 70 when Titus and his Roman warriors overran Jerusalem and the Jewish temple.



( NO  IT  WAS  NOT;  THE  WAILING  WALL  OF  TODAY  WAS  PART  OF  THAT  TEMPLE;  IT  WAS  THE  OUTER  WALL;  THE  FIRST  COURT  YARD  WAS  WHERE  PEOPLE  SOLD  ANIMALS  FOR  SACRIFICE....A  BUSINESS  OF  GREED  AND  PROFIT  WAS  DONE.....JESUS  ON  TWO  OCCASIONS   TURNED  OUT  THE  MONEY  CHANGES,  FOR  MAKING  THE  HOUISE  OIF  GOD,  A  DEN  OF  THIEVES  AND  ROBBERS  -  SO  PROVING  THIS  AREA  WAS  CONSIDERED  BY  JESUS  AS  PART  OF  THEW  TEMPLE  OF  GOD - Keith Hunt)



The only possible conclusion is that the temple of Jesuss day would be destroyed and that the abomination of desolation would occur in a yet-future temple. This latter temple would be built at least by the middle of the tribulation period (see also Daniel 9:27; 12:11).



(NO,  THE  TEMPLE  OF  HEROD  WAS  NOT  FULLY  DESTROYED,  THE  PROPHECY  IS  YET  FOR  THE  FUTURE;  AND  HAS  NOTHING  TO DO  WITH  ANY  MIDDLE  OF  ANY  PERIOD  -  Keith Hunt)



Jewish Sacrifices Reinstated



Scripture is clear that there will be animal sacrifices in the Jewish temple sometime during the first half of the tribulation, but then the antichrist will stop them. We read in Daniel 9:27 that the antichrist "shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering." This "week" refers to the seven-year tribulation period that precedes the second corning of Christ. For half of the week—that is, the last three and a half years—sacrifices in the temple will cease. John F. Walvoord explains it this way:

This expression ["for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering"] refers to the entire Levitical system, which suggests that Israel will have restored that system in the first half of the 70th seven. After this ruler gains worldwide political power, he will assume power in the religious realm as well and will cause the world to worship him (2 Thes. 2:4; Rev. 13:8). To receive such worship, he will terminate all organized religions. Posing as the world's rightful king and god and as Israel's prince of peace, he will then turn against Israel and become her destroyer.



(WRONG  ON  EVER  COUNT:  THERE  WILL  BE  NO  RESTORING  OF  ANIMAL  SACRIFICES  BEFORE  JESUS RETURNS,  AND  CERTAINLY  NOT  IN  THE  MIDDLE  OF  A  7  YEAR  TRIBULATION  PERIOD.  THE  JEWS  ACCORDING  THE  PRESENTATION  OF  EX. 38/39  ALREADY  GIVEN,  WILL  RECEIVE  THE  HOLY  SPIIT  POUR  OUT  ON  THEM [EZ/39:29]  AND  SO  ACCORDING  TO  THIS  GUY  OTHERS,  THEY  WILL  BE  IN  THE [SECRET]  RAPTURE.  THE  LEADER  WILL NEVER  GAIN  WORLD-WIDE  RULERSHIP - Keith Hunt)



Preparations in the Present Day



Even today we hear reports that various Jewish individuals and groups have been working behind the scenes to prepare various materials for the future temple, including priestly robes, temple tapestries, and worship utensils. These items are being prefabricated so that when the temple is finally rebuilt, everything will be ready for it.



(YES  AND  THIS  IDEA  HAS  BEEN  GOING  AROUND  SINCE  THE  EARLY  1980s.....I  READ  THE  ARTICLES  AND  BOOKS  ON  IT  ALL.  ONE  ARTICLE  SAID  THE  STONES  FOR  THE  TEMPLE  WERE  AT  A  CERTAIN  DOCK  IN  THE  EAST  COST  OF  THE  USA,  READY  TO  BE  SHIPPED  OUT.....IT  NEVER  HAPPENED;  IT  WAS  A TOTAL  LIE,  BUT  PROBABLY  SOLD  SOME  BOOKS  OR  MAGAZINES  -  YES  SO-CALLED  CHRISTIAN  RELIGIOUS  PEOPLE  WILL  DO  SUCH  THINGS  TO  MAKE  A NAME  FOR  THEMSELVES  -  Keith  Hunt)



I reiterate that the temple does not need to be rebuilt until the midpoint of the tribulation period. This makes the fact that many items are already being prefabricated all the more exciting to many prophecy enthusiasts. The day of the rapture may be drawing near.

..........



THE  TEMPLE  WILL  NOT  BE  REBUILT.  MANY  ARTICLES  GO  INTO  DETAIL  PROVING  THIS  POINT  ON  MYT  WEBSITE.  AND  AS  THE  JEWS  WILL  HAVE  GOD'S  SPIRIT  POURED  OUT  ON  THEM [EZ.39:27), THERE  WILL  BE  NO  JEWS  AROUND  AS  THEY  WILL  BE  IN  THE  RAPTURE  SOMEWHERE.
