quoting from Pastor Bob:
I personally hold the view that the Temple will be built at the beginning of the "Final" week of Daniel's Seventy Week next to the Mosque of Omar, opposite and on a plane facing the Eastern (Golden) Gate that has been sealed by the Muslims and of which the Bible states as a prophecy it would remain sealed until the Messiah comes, and not opened before. The little "Dome of the Spirits" some call it the "Dome of the Tablets" plays a key marker in the location of the Second Temple according to Asher Kaufmann.
My thoughts are the moment we are "removed by force" - i.e. raptured, the rush will be on to rebuild the Temple. The estimated 18 to 22 month construction time period along with all the ritual requirements of consecration and dedication can be finished inside the first half of the Tribulation. With the first half of the Tribulation being 42 months, there is ample time to build, and resume the Sanhedren worship and sacrifical acts. I believe things will happen so fast after we are gone, people will feel like a tornado hit, metaphorically speaking. I believe in a Pre-Tribulation Pre-Millennial Rapture. Again, depending whether one holds to Covenant or Dispensational theology determines where you fall in these matters. The key distinction is whether you accept the idea of Paul in Romans 9,10,11.
Covenant Theology is the bedrock of "Replacement Theology" which has its roots with Constantine and Augustine and perpetuated by Romes "Counterfeit" Christianity.
If you don't agree with a Third or Tribulation Temple, then you have a lot of explaining away, the entire issue of the prince who sits in the Temple and calls himself god. Covenant Theology is central to nearly every mainline Protestant denomination today. They are the daughteres churches of the Harlot. As a serious researcher be mindful of the fact that "Rothschild's/Vatican/Jesuits/Grand Orient Lodge Freemasonry" are all in bed together. It hastaken me 48 years to connect the dots.
I don't think there will be a 3 temple as Jesus said we are the temple. In Rev 11 I think it is describing the measurement of the temple as in people. Leave the people in the outer court out- [they don't come in and have fellowship with God in the inner chambers.] It even says it's measuring people. He's measuring those therein. It then flows into the two witnesses. These are identified in Is 43: Jacob and Israel, in my mind they are those who have been His witnesses throughout the last 2 thousand years; Jews and Christians. (and it's not replacement theology) Now as far as antichrist coming into the temple declaring himself God I have two opinions; it can either be:
a) literal temple, not necessarily the temple in Jerusalem-:
2 Thess 2:4
From a primary word ναίω naiō (to dwell); a fane, shrine, temple: - shrine, temple. Compare G2411.
b) the mark, being the instrument of buying or selling, or taken a step further it might possibly change a person's dna- .Just seeing where science and technology is leading us these days, and it is as in the days of Noah I can see a manipulation or an altering of one's dna to become part of the beast system.
