The Third Temple Will Be Built Soon
This ministry is dedicated to preparing the Jews, the nations and the Church for the return of the Lord. When we began in 2003, many scoffed at the idea that we were entering a time of judgment in America and around the world. Today, with international economic crises, sexual licentiousness and...

President Trump is moving America’s Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This is all a part of the flow of history, which is coming to a climax. Our Embassy in Jerusalem is being fast tracked, and should be operational in a little over a year. But Jews and Christians throughout the world are keeping their eyes on a bigger event. When will the Jewish Temple be rebuilt? The rebuilt Temple is a central part of the end time drama.

The Peace Treaty of Daniel 9:27 immediately precedes the Tribulation. It speaks of the rebuilt Temple.  It could be the treaty that follows the Ezekiel War.  Secular Jews want peace; religious Jews want a temple on the Temple Mount.  The antichrist gives both groups their heart’s desire in Daniel 9:27. The Jews build the Temple and antichrist guarantees the seven year peace deal. Daniel gives us a summary of the seven year Tribulation. (The fact that “sacrifice and offering” are taking place indicates the Temple has been rebuilt.)

Daniel 9:27 (NKJV)
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”


The other name for the Peace Treaty of Daniel 9:27 is the “Covenant with death and hell”:

Isaiah 28:15 (NKJV)
15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,
And with Sheol we are in agreement.
When the overflowing scourge passes through,
It will not come to us,
For we have made lies our refuge,
And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.”

I personally feel that Benjamin Netanyahu will not be Prime Minister of Israel at that time.  I don’t believe he would sign such an agreement.  After winning the Ezekiel War the Israelis will be confident that peace has finally arrived.  Some may even believe the Ezekiel War was actually Armageddon.  They had won the war (Ezekiel 38:21,22). Here’s how they did it (Gog rules Russia):

Ezekiel 38:21-22 (NKJV)
21 I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 
The Israelis then become very confident and wealthy, and have even acquired a seven year supply of free gas and oil

Ezekiel 39:9 (NKJV)
“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. 
They look forward to finally living in peace. I believe the Temple will be built next to the Dome of the Rock.  We know Elijah and another ancient prophet will return to Israel.  Possibly Elijah will tell the hierarchy of the Jews it is permissible to build the Temple next to the Dome of the Rock.

Matthew 17:10-11 (NKJV)
10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will RESTORE ALL THINGS.” (Emphasis added)
For many generations scholars had taught the Jews would never build their Temple next to an idolatrous structure like the Dome of the Rock. However, Scripture indicates the Temple will be built next to a court with a “gentile structure” on it.

Revelation 11:1-2The Message (MSG)
11 1-2 I was given a stick for a measuring rod and told, “Get up and measure God’s Temple and Altar and everyone worshiping in it. Exclude the outside court; don’t measure it. It’s been handed over to NON-JEWISH OUTSIDERS. THEY’LL DESECRATE the Holy City for forty-two months. (Emphasis Added)
 
Everything goes downhill from there.  The antichrist had been the author of the Peace Treaty ending the Ezekiel War.  He was probably declared the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.”  The world looked forward to a time of peace.  But the antichrist, who had become the ruler of the Revived Roman Empire, busies himself amassing more and more power.  His empire, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium (home of the European Union) has become very “green,” giving animals more and more rights.

Meanwhile, Israel has reinstituted animal sacrifice in the Temple, according to the law of God.  Europe, which has elevated “animal rights” to be equal with human rights, is outraged that animals are being slaughtered.  Antichrist finally has the opening he has longed for, to turn against Israel with the backing of his empire.  “Stop animal sacrifice because I am now in charge!” ( see “end to sacrifice and offering” below).

Daniel 9:27  (NKJV)27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. …

Even more distressing, Mid-Tribulation he marches into the rebuilt Temple and declares that he is “god”!

 

2 Thessalonians 2:4New King James Version (NKJV who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.  

Everything antichrist chooses to do causes him to prosper:

“(He) shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished”  Daniel 11:36 B

“He shall … divide the land for gain.”  Daniel 11:39 B

“He shall have powers over the treasures of gold and silver…” Daniel 11:43

“… the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her(Babylon’s) luxury.”  Revelation 18:3

The middle of the Tribulation has arrived.  It will be a time of decision.  The people of the earth can get very wealthy very quickly-- or they can choose not to follow the beast and be decapitated.

Revelation 20:4  (NKJV)
…  Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands…   

It will be the most difficult time ever to be alive.
