Latest Third Temple News and Bible Prophecy

What the Third Temple in Jerusalem could look like if it were built?


Something that is constantly watched for is any signs of the building of the Third Temple or anything associated with it, as this is one of the key components to the fulfillment of End Times Bible Prophecy especially that mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27. The possibility of The Third Temple is mentioned many times throughout the Bible in Prophecy terms, in the Old and New Testament. Some interesting headlines have emerged earlier in 2017 and also the run up and over the Easter period,that suggest that there could POSSIBLY be some remote tentative steps being taken towards building a Third Temple in the pipeline but again they could possibly be yet more rumours.

This is a Part 2 and follow on article to a previous in depth article which was written about this Third Temple covering areas such as The History of the Holy Temple, The Importance of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and The current Status of the Third Temple and it´s requirements and a brief summary of it's Prophecy implications. Further details at "The Building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. Will Prophecy be fulfilled?". This is essential and recommended reading as a background to this article which is more focused on the relevant numerous Bible verses that mention the building of the Third Temple in some shape or form and also whether there is any emerging prophecy fulfillment within current news headlines in the Jerusalem, Israel area.

Third Temple Construction Problems
The Third Temple is fraught with problems one being the actual location. Many say the exact location is not known but many others say it is where the Muslim Dome of the Rock currently stands. Israelis in general are very secular. They know any attempt to build a third temple where the current Dome of the Rock is located would result in immediate war with the Muslims. Only a handful of ultra-Orthodox Jews have a passion for The Third Temple. Some say a temporary tent like structure or a Tabernacle similar to that which was used in the Times of Moses could achieve the same effect as a purpose built temple and act as a temporary stop gap, but again no headlines or plans for such a structure have yet emerged. The plans for a permanent Third Temple do exist and exist at The Temple Institute Video

What brought this article about is a couple of very small headlines, the type that would be missed by the mainstream media which happened on the run up to Easter, that highlighted that some possible small steps could be surfacing towards the incredibly remote chance of the building of a Third Temple in Jerusalem but they are very small.

As mentioned in the previous article there are many problems surrounding the building of the Third Temple but these are the main three.

1. Jews are forbidden from entering any part of the Temple Mount and a declaration was signed in January 2005 confirming this decision.

2. Everything is in place for the building of the Third Temple except the land on which to rebuild it. That area is occupied by the Islamic shrine called the Dome of the Rock.

3. The Muslim world has threatened World War if the Dome of the Rock is destroyed which is on the same site and is one of Islam´s holiest places.

The main problem as can be seen above is the Islamic Dome of the Rock which many say occupies the spot where the first two temples were located and where the "Holiest of Holies" would also have to be. Unless some form of agreement is reached with the Muslim world or some sort of joint collaboration or project to enable the Third temple to be be built then the Dome of the Rock stays where it is, as a very effective block to any further developments in construction terms of the Third Temple. Barring a natural disaster or an earthquake or similar, the Dome of the Rock looks to be here to stay for some time in the foreseeable future.

A recent headline in early April which stated "Temple Mount Activists Sacrifice Lamb In First Passover Reenactment" which was performed in Jerusalem’s Jewish quarter, with hundreds of people watching the ritual, which involved slaughtering the sheep on a public square, sprinkling its blood on a mock altar and then eating the cooked remains in the faithful re-inactment of sacrifices mentioned in the Old Testament. An act that, hasn't been performed since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70AD? A prophetic sign or just wishful thinking? Whether this is a sign of further things to come remains to be seen.

A headline that occurred back in very late 2016 stated "Rabbis Urge Trump, Putin to Help Rebuild Temple in Jerusalem" with the Rabbis stating they see , a modern effort to revive the ancient Jewish religious court

Prof. Rabbi Hillel Weiss, a spokesman for the Sanhedrin stated “The political conditions today, in which the two most important national leaders in the world support the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance, is historically unprecedented.”

Letters have been sent apparently to both world leaders from The Sanhedrin. Again whether any of this building materialises remains to be seen, but it would an unprecedented major prophecy fulfillment if this did happen.

Why is the Third Temple so important in Prophecy?
If you are a Christian that believes in a Pre Tribulation Rapture then the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem is of no concern as those who believe in this will be raptured out before this Temple is completed. BUT if you are a Christian that doesn't believe in the Pre Trib Rapture and need confirmation that we are in the End times, then this is one of the top confirmations that we are indeed living in the last days. The Third Temple is a prime requirement where the "abomination of desolation"(The Anti Christ) will stand and declare himself as God, as predicted by Daniel and St John the Divine in The Book of Revelation (Chapter 13). It is questionable without this Temple, whether this "abomination of desolation" could actually take place, as it is The Temple of God where he stands to actually perform this event or ceremony which from that day forward he takes over the world.

The relevant and infamous Bible verse from Daniel is below.

Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The confirmation of the Temple of God is mentioned in Revelation 11 which equates to the Third Temple which has yet to be built

Revelation 11:1-2
1. And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.


Summary
If 2017 turns out to miraculously be the year that The Third Temple is built in Jerusalem even as a temporary structure such as a Moses style Tabernacle, that would be a colossal achievement in itself. The Third Temple is a major part of the Prophecy jigsaw puzzle! If the building of a permanent structure along the lines of plans held by the Temple Institute received backing and funding from two major world leaders and it was built where the Dome of the Rock stands now????, that would only be the result of some sort miraculous divine intervention that hasn't been seen for two thousand years and would be a major sign of prophetic significance. All the before mentioned cannot be ruled out especially with the times we live in now. A localised devastating earthquake at the Dome of the Rock or some sort of joint venture with the Muslim community maybe under the CoExist banner are other options for the building of The Third Temple, but it's the small headlines that the mainstream media would probably miss, that will indicate that this Third Temple looks set to fulfill it's role in Bible Prophecy as predicted by Daniel all those thousands of years ago.
