Dear Barry;The Temple to which you refer in Ezekiel is the Temple which will be built by the Lord in the Millennial Kingdom and specific measurements are given which the Temple Mount area today would never be able to accommodate. Furthermore, it is where the Lord says He "will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile..." When Jesus returns, a great earthquake will cause the Mt. of Olives to split apart and the Temple Mount will rise and be enlarged; and it is upon this higher, larger Temple Mount that the Lord will build His Temple -- and yes, it will serve as a "Memorial" during the Millennial Kingdom. The physical Millennial Temple spoken of in Ezekiel 43:7 and 44:9 are very clear that "no foreigner uncircumcised in heart (Gentiles) or in flesh (Jews) shall enter My sanctuary." Therefore the antichrist will never enter nor defile this temple.The "profane place" mentioned in Ezekiel is NOT the current 'Dome of the Rock' on the Temple Mount, which Jews and Christians may naturally think of as being "profane" (irreverent) since it occupies the site of the former Jewish Temples. But not only does "profane" mean irreverence to holy things, it means separate....it means secular. When the Temple Mount is transformed and the Lord builds His Millennial Temple upon it, it will be (separate) high above the rest of the (secular) City - it will be sanctified (set apart) and holy...indeed look at what Isaiah 2:2 and Micah 4:1 says: "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, 'Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob;....."The (so-called tribulation temple) referred to in Revelation 11, where John is told to measure the "temple" is clearly lacking measurements. As I said in the previous post, the Revelation 11 temple is said to be measured with a "reed like unto a rod." That speaks of chastisement or punishment. Those who become the Temple of God after the Rapture will have their "portion with the hypocrites" in that they will be called upon to give their lives for the testimony of Christ.....but they are saved and will join their brethren under the altar of God until the number of all who will be killed is fulfilled.Earlier in Revelation 3:12, the church in Philadelphia is told, "If you conquer, I will make you a pillar in the temple of my God." Becoming a pillar in the temple of God means that the temple is made out of people, not brick and mortar. Thus, when John begins to speak of the temple being trampled later on, it is reasonable to conclude that it is the people of God who are being attacked and trampled.
