Prophecy Update: The Temple Times!
In 2014 I stood at the southern end of the Temple Mount. Our guide was giving us a lecture about the history of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. I asked him if he had any thoughts about the rebuilding of the temple. His answer was what I expected; he said that there were three possibilities on top of the Temple Mount. That is when things got weird for me. I asked him, where is the Gihon Springs? He said, turn around, it is down the hill.
There is a theory that places the temple in the city of David. The traditional Temple Mount contains the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. Both of these buildings are sacred to Islam. Building the temple on the Temple Mount will cause World War 3! It seems impossible to build the temple on the Temple Mount or in the City of David. Two imposing threats are equally a problem, Islam and Tradition!
The Bible teaches that the Temple was built by the Gihon Springs because it is the only source of water in Jerusalem. “The Gihon Spring is along the Kidron Valley near the ancient City of David. The name “Gihon” comes from the Hebrew gihu, meaning, “gushing forth.” It is one of the world’s largest intermittent springs and made life possible for ancient Jerusalem. While the water from the spring was used for irrigation in the Kidron, it was also central to temple worship.” yrm.org
“Another biblical clue to the location of the temple is the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. This threshing floor is found in 2Chronicles 3:1, “Then Solomon began to build the house of Yahweh at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where Yahweh appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.” Scripture records that Solomon built the Temple on Mount Moriah and over the threshing floor that David purchased from Ornan the Jebusite. The mention here of Mount Moriah and Zion is important. It shows that these locations are synonymous, as is also the City of David and Zion.” yrm.org
The Bible is clear that the Temple was located within the parameters of the old city of David. All of the archeological digs happening in the old city are revealing more and more that the temple stood in the City of David! The Temple Mount Faithful and the Temple Institute are broadcasting that the temple will be built very soon!
“The Faithful Movement Is Calling the Government of Israel to Urgently Regather the Ten Lost Tribes, That Have Been Discovered, to Their Original Homeland in Samaria With No Delay. This Needs to Be Accomplished Before the “United Nations Organization” and the European Union Declare Their End-Time Plan to Establish a Foreign Arab Islamic So-Called “Palestinian State” in Samaria, the Ancient Homeland of the Ten Lost Tribes, From Where They Were Exiled. The Regathering of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel Is Part of the Exciting Redemption of Israel That We Are Currently Experiencing and Was Prophesied by the Prophets of Israel as a Major Feature of the End-Times. The Faithful Movement Continues Her Intensive Work to Fulfill It as an Important Step Towards the Building of the Third Holy Temple in the Lifetime of Our Generation.” templemountfaithful.org
Based on prophecies in the book of Daniel about sacrifices coming to a close at the end of this age of man and of an end-time abomination of desolation, Christians believe the Jews will build another temple in Jerusalem prior to the return of Jesus Christ to earth. In addition to these passages in Daniel, Jesus spoke of an end-time “abomination of desolation” that would stand “in the Holy place. Jesus saw this as a future event.
“Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand).”
Zechariah 5 tells us of a time coming on the earth when a temple is built in the land of Shinar. This is in the fertile crescent at the place we call Babylon. A basket with a wicked woman is taken to Babylon in the end times. Babylon is the place where this temple will be built.
“Then he said to me, To build a temple for her in the land of Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal.”
The rise of the whore of Babylon will include a temple in Babylon. As Pope Francis heads to Ur of the Chaldeans, he is trying to bring together all of the religions of the world. God describes the end times as a time when a false religion will dominate the world.
“On his second day in Iraq, Pope Francis will travel on Iraqi Airways to Najaf to meet with Ali al-Sistani, an influential leader of Shiite Muslims in Iraq. Najaf is considered one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites in Shiite Islam, after only Mecca and Medina. Pope Francis will then travel to the plain of Ur in southern Iraq, which the Bible records as the birthplace of Abraham. The archaeological site at Ur, excavated in the 20th century, includes a Mesopotamian ziggurat and ancient complex of houses. The pope plans to give a speech at an interreligious gathering in Ur because of the importance of Abraham for all three major monotheistic religions. In Judaism, Abraham is revered as the first patriarch of the Jewish people. Muslims believe that Muhammad is a descendent of Abraham’s son Ishmael.” catholicnewsagency.com
Things are heating up for the end times temple coming on the earth. The Bible predicts these days, here are a few articles that point this out!
“Both United States and Israeli political leaders are making political decisions that will hasten the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. February 8, 2021 – United States Senate approved Jerusalem as the capitol of the Jewish state of Israel. That vote was 97 to 3. The 3 who voted against it Senator from Maryland Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders voted against it but this is great news for Israel is it not? David Dolan reporting that both American political leaders and Israeli politicians are making decisions that could bring about the next Temple in Jerusalem.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.” vcyamerica.org
“Israeli Military Officials Warn Biden Against Rejoining Iran Nuke Deal. A group of nearly 2,000 Israeli generals, military officials, and Mossad operatives warned the Biden administration on Monday against rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, saying the effort “represents an existential threat to the Jewish State” and will “ignite a massive nuclear arms race” across Middle East.” freebeacon.com
“Recent events have demonstrated that Iran is engaging in two, parallel “shadow wars”: one against Israel and the second is against the United States. Iran’s shadow war with Israel spans continents and is not limited to the Middle East. Earlier in February, media reports surfaced on the arrests of Iranian agents in Ethiopia after allegedly scouting Israeli, Emirati and American embassies. In a parallel effort, Iran is attempting to improve its bargaining position with the Biden administration by stepping up its proxy attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq. This has included attacks on Baghdad’s Green Zone and a deadly recent rocket attack on a military base in Erbil in northern Iraq, which killed a Filipino contractor and wounded U.S. military personnel.” jns.org
With the unelected Joe Biden in the White House, the nation is at its weakest point in our history. Not only are we doing the bidding of our enemies in China, but capitulation to the Iranians is very high. Here is an article about that!
“IRANIAN former diplomat has no doubt that Joe Biden will submit to Iran and agree to all of Iran’s ‘conditions’ for returning to the nuke deal. Apparently, he understands Jihadi Joe better than most Americans. The director of the Center for Strategic Studies and International Relations of Iran and former diplomat Amir Mousavi said that Iran would not give up any of its conditions for a return to the JCPOA but U.S. President Biden would.” barenakedislam.com
Barack Obama and Joe Biden were enemies of Israel during the 8-year reign of the Obama Administration. They did more to harm Israel than any other presidency. Those days are back under this administration. Israel is isolated as never before. The left, political elites and globalists had to get rid of Trump in order to enact their anti-Semitic antichrist plan. We are steaming full ship ahead to the tribulation period.
“REPORT: OBAMA TRIED TO GIVE GOLAN HEIGHTS TO SYRIA. Just a few months before the Syrian civil war erupted in March 2011, the Obama administration offered the Assad regime an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights in return for severing ties with Iran and Hezbollah, the London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported on Sunday. The talks involved then-American envoy Frederic Hof, the paper said, along with ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” israel365news.com
The battle against Israel is fomenting to the point that the Palestinian Authority believes they can start destroying Jewish historical sights. One such sight is the altar of Joshua on Mount Ebal. Here is an article about that:
“Investigative archaeologist Rabbi Harry Moskoff is on a mission to preserve the Altar of Joshua on Mt Eval in the Samaria region. The Biblical site was heavily damaged by the Palestinian Authority who was caught grinding the outer wall into gravel in January. Rabbi Moskoff is also launching an initiative to enable gentiles to make a sacrifice on Joshua’s Altar – the site of the first sacrifice in the Land of Israel. Additionally, Moskoff discusses the left-wing NGOs trying to erase the site’s history.” israel365news.com
The problem in Israel is the same as in the United States. Many in the government and the Archaeological community do not believe in the Bible. They are true atheists and leftists who demean anyone who believes the Bible. This will lead Israel to accept the antichrist. In spite of this biblical prophecy will be fulfilled! The unelected Joe Biden has empowered the anti-Semites to attack Israel!
“ICC opens ‘war crimes’ investigation in West Bank and Gaza. The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor has opened a formal investigation into alleged war crimes in the Palestinian territories. Israel rejected Ms Bensouda’s decision, while Palestinian officials praised it. The ICC has the authority to prosecute those accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes on the territory of states party to the Rome Statute, its founding treaty.” .bbc.com
As Israel is more and more isolated, God will approach them and open their eyes to the truth. We see the isolation growing more and more—soon the USA will be out of the picture.
“Israel livid over ‘anti-Semitic’ ICC war crimes probe; PA and Hamas cheer. Netanyahu calls prosecutor’s decision to open investigation ‘undiluted anti-Semitism and the height of hypocrisy’; rights groups hail launch of probe. “We will never stop fighting this injustice,” he vowed. “We will speak the truth in every forum, in every country, on every stage until this outrageous decision is reversed and becomes null and void.” .timesofisrael.com
“It is safe to assume that Israel has brought the military option for a possible clash with Iran back to the table. Otherwise, to what can we attribute the out-of-the-blue surfacing of the satellite images of the construction project in the Negev Nuclear Research Center on Thursday? It was not the facts that made the story, but the timing at which they leaked. Someone is sending a clear message to the world: Israel is sharpening its sword. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed out several times that he opposed the Biden administration’s plan to return to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.” israelhayom.com
The military is preparing as if the USA will not help or intervene on their behalf. This is what Obama did and this is what Biden is doing…if he can remember what he is doing! I think someone else is in charge in America—it is not Biden. The spirit of antichrist is alive and well in the USA. This spirit is leading to death and destruction. The USA will continue its decline based on internal moral decadence and economic shockwaves. Offending a Holy God will bring consequences that America is just now seeing as a reality. The birth pangs are getting closer and more intense.
“This world is hearing and seeing the last warning message from God. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision! (Joel 3:14) When Noah and Lot warned their respective people of God’s coming judgment and destruction, the people would not listen. Instead they treated Noah and Lot as “extremists”. beforeitsnews.com
I will leave you with this verse to contemplate this week:
“As in the days of Noah and Lot, the soon return of the Lord Jesus will be a snare unto the people who do not heed the warning and give their lives to Him.”
