Sputnik News: Biblical conspiracy theorists have voiced a warning that the erection of a third Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which religious activists have recently called for, inevitably carries Jesus Christ’s imminent return.
Jewish eschatological teachings have it that the Holy Temple will rise up from the ground for the third time when Armageddon nears.
The concerns were fuelled last week by the powerful Jewish rabbi community known under the name Sanhedrin, who penned letter ahead of an approaching election to two mayoral candidates, requesting to finally rebuild the temple, after the first two Holy Temples constructed on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount centuries ago were wiped out by the Babylonians and then by the Romans. The location has housed no temple since then. more …
Opinion: Religious Jews who refuse Jesus’ atonement for sin are longing for a temple to offer animal sacrifice. And one is most definitely coming:
- Ezekiel 36:26-28
- Daniel 9:27
- Micah 4:1-7
- Zechariah 6:12
- 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
- Revelation 11:1-2
For this post I want to focus on 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.”
As the world waits for the ‘deal of the century’ peace plan from Donald Trump, some are wondering if this plan will fulfill Daniel’s prophecy.
First, Daniel says he shall confirm a treaty, indicating some world leader (small h) will use an existing covenant or treaty not create a new one. If the Trump plan is new and not redrafted, it will not quality.
Second, Daniel’s treaty will have a duration of 1 week (Hebrew- Shabua- 7 years) therefore any variation will disqualify the Trump plan.
Third, Daniel is clear that the plan will allow for a temple for animal sacrifice that this world leader will cancel 3.5 years into the peace plan.
What we do know, however, is that one way or another the third temple is on the way. We have God’s word on it.
