"REBUILT TEMPLE OF GOD IN JERUSALEM -- ADDITIONAL COMMENTS"


Below are some additional comments in reference to my 1/12/2012 post at
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2012/donnad112.htm in regards to a rebuilt temple.
 
According to Matthew 24:15-16 Jesus says, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."  And in Mark 13:14-19, Jesus says, "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter [therein], to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For [in] those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be."
 
So the abomination of desolation in the holy place must physically be near by in Judaea since Jesus tells the people in Judaea to immediately flee when they see the abomination of desolation stand in the holy place.  The holy place must not be in the Vatican City nor in the Mormon temple in Salt Lake City nor in Washington, D.C. nor in New York City because these cities are not near Judaea in southern Israel. 
 
Daniel 11:31-32 also says, "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. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do [exploits]."
 
Daniel 12:11, "And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days."
 
Since "they" place the abomination of desolation according to Dan. 11:31 and the abomination that maketh desolate is set up in Dan. 12:11, it sounds like it is an idol or it may very well be the image of the beast that the second beast (false prophet) has the people make to the beast in Rev. 13:13-14, and the image of the beast and the beast are both worshipped.  I can't see the image of the beast being placed or set up inside the holy place in the temple of God if the temple of God referred to the bodies of the born again believers who have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of them.  So it must be referring to what would be the holy place in a rebuilt temple in Judaea in southern Israel, and Jerusalem was located in Judaea.
