The Third Temple in Jerusalem Dilemma

Where do we get the Third Temple idea from?

King Solomon of Israel built a magnificent temple in Jerusalem to the LORD (1 Kings 9:1). This is known as the first temple in Jerusalem. The Jews (Judahites) transgressed the laws of their Creator and this caused an invasion of their land by the Babylonians as they were taken captive in Babylon.

Some years later, the Judahites were permitted to return home and rebuild the city as well as the Temple during the days of Ezra and Nehemiah.

We can fast-forward some more to the days of Herod the Idumean. The temple that King Herod had refurbished during the days of Christ is the same temple of Solomon that was refurbished during Ezra/Nehemiah’s time period; the rebuilding took time, from the time it was destroyed by the Babylonians under the rule of Nebuchadnezzar.

This would be the so-called “second temple” in Jerusalem.

In 70 A.D., General Titus of Rome by the order of his father Vespasian sacked Jerusalem in the effort to subdue rebellious Jews, and once again Jerusalem was completely destroyed, the temple and the city!

There hasn’t been another temple established by the Jews or Jewish people since then in that land. However certain writings in the scriptures prophecy “apparently” that a third temple would be built and established by the Jews or Jewish people prior to the return of the Lord Christ’s second coming.

The idea comes from Matthew chapter 24 as Christ answered His disciple’s question regarding the end of the world and the destruction of Jerusalem.

Christ referred us to Daniel the prophet and the abomination of desolation. If we go into the book of Daniel for this reference, we’d end up in chapter 11 for the actual phrase (abomination/desolation), but in chapter 8 of Daniel for the phrase “the transgression of desolation (Daniel 8:13).”

Daniel 11:31

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Here is the logic; in order to take away the daily sacrifice, there has to be one (a daily sacrifice). In order to have a daily sacrifice, there has to be a temple, and only the Jews sacrifice.

Further, in the book of Revelation, John wrote about a temple, the temple of God.

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.

The apostle Paul also wrote about a “future” temple, which would have to be the third temple.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; [4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

There is our third temple compilation.

However, the problem is that the “Third” Temple will be the one Zerubabel and the Exalted Immortal Beings build up for Christ to rule in for the thousand-year rule on earth. The Temple reference by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2 and by John in Revelation 11 refers to a spiritual temple.

The church is the Temple of God!

If we backtrack, going to the end and coming back to the present day, we’d learn a few things.

  1. Christ Rules for a Thousand Years
  2. The Messiah invades the earth with His Troops
  3. Christ opens the Heavens at the Seventh Seal (known as the sixth seal in the scriptures)
  4. The nations begin to use thermonuclear weapons against each other and their civilians
  5. The nations gathered together to war with each other
  6. Euphrates River is dried making a way for the kings of the east
  7. The world experiences calamities thought to be global warming, but they are the trumpets and vials being poured upon the earth.
  8. “This gospel” of the Kingdom begins to be preached to all nations
  9. A desolating sickness covers the land, pestilence or pandemic covers all nations
  10. The tribes of Israel begin to be sealed as well as the nations who receive the Light; they repent and are baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
  11. Light breaks forth upon Israel by way of Ephraim and Judah, Christ receives and opens the Book of the Seven Seals to begin gathering His people using the latter of the last day Elijah and other prophets.
  12. We know and prophesy in part because the book is still sealed; we see through a glass, darkly until the Light breaks forth (it did in 2019).

In this, where was the temple built by the “Jewish” people?

This is a fabric of the imagination of the abominable church known as the Catholic Church. So to clear it up, we will use Daniel’s prophetic timeline.

Daniel was given a vision of the latter days starting with the Medo Persian empires all the way down to the coming of Christ (Daniel 8 & 10). Daniel 11 details the end of the Roman Empire or beast.

Arms stand on his part and pollute the sanctuary of strength. They take away the daily sacrifice and place the abomination that maketh desolate (Daniel 11:31). This was completed in two intervals; 70 AD and 1453 AD. In verse 39 of the chapter’s timeline, the prophecy states they will divide the land for gain. These are the nations dividing the lands of America and Africa for their own political, economical, and financial gains.

America had been taken over since the 1600s by the French, Spanish, and Portuguese, to name a few. In 1888 at the Berlin Conference, European nations began to slice up and divide Africa for their own gain!

Misplaced Prophetic Teachings

Therefore, the abomination of desolation is not in reference to a future temple being built by the “Jewish” people, it references the old temple. And according to Daniel’s timeline, we will not have another temple built; we are waiting for the massive and near-earth-ending war to take place, which has seeded itself with the conflict over Ukraine. We are waiting for the Euphrates River to dry up, which is the world economies collapsing, and then war will be waged for five months.

Repent and be baptized for the remission of sins, the sins of your forefathers, and the sins of your nation today. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and prepare your house NOW. Do this in order to seal yourself among the elect.
