"My 2 Cents About the Temple"


I know the scripture talks about the physical, rebuilt third temple, but I do think the following verse may have significance:
 
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. John 2:18-22
 
I'm wondering if Satan entering into the antichrist is the same as the abomination of desolation where the antichrist enters "The Holy of Holies" in his mind or consciousness, saying "I am God". Funny how humans call the areas to the left and right of the eyes their "temples". I'm also not saying there won't be a physical third temple, but it's possible that the spiritual temple will mean something as well. We are also taught in scripture that our bodies are our temples. The main point is that the Lord will dwell within us and "tabernacle" with us when we are born again. That's the miracle--I believe the 5 foolish virgins who cast out demons in His name and obviously "knew of Him" were never born again or indwealt with his presence. That's why he says "I never knew you".
