"Sherry Vance and Sonchild - Physical vs Spiritual Temple"

Hi Sherry, Sonchild and Doves,
There was a great point by Grant Jeffrey made that I had forgotten about that drives home the point that there will be a physical temple standing in the middle of the Tribulation.  For those that believe otherwise, ask yourself how the Jews are going to see the "abomination of desolation" in order to escape as is directed by our Lord in the Olivet Discourse:
Matthew 24:15-21 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.
It would be very difficult for the Jews to try to decifer a spiritual meaning to this passage in order to be saved.  If I were to read this passage to my almost 7 year old and ask him what it means, I am confident he would tell me that Jesus said when bad stuff is happening in a temple that its time to head for the hills.  
Another point that is not in the video is that a similar warning was given back when the Temple was destroyed in 70AD. 
Luke 21:21-24  “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. 
This was a clear warning to the Jews, that when Jerusalem was surrouded it was time to get out of Dodge.  As shown above the VERY similar warning was also given regarding the defiling of a Jewish Temple.  
I have no doubt there will be a temple constructed before the middle of the Tribulation.  I myself have seen with my own eyes many of the items that have been constructed and intended to use in this next temple.  The people at the Temple Institute in Jerusalem are dead serious about constructing a temple and have spent loads of money getting ready for it. You can see the picture of the menorah in the 6th picture down in this link:
They have pictures of most of the items at their website:
Thank you Sonchild for sharing this video.
