I am looking for the FOURTH Temple

Imperfect but forgiven
Last week I wrote about the danger of supporting Orthodox Jews in the establishment of a third temple. It generated quite a bit of interest and some requested that I continue to share on this subject. One gentleman wrote:

“I agree with most of this article except the part about the third temple. Yeshua will remain in heaven until all things are restored. Without the restored temple, how does Yeshua defeat the antichrist and rule and reign from Mt Zion?”

First, the Bible does not say, “Yeshua will remain in heaven until all things are restored.” It says, “until the times comes for God to restore everything.”(Acts 3:21) Some things God has already begun to restore. In the church, we can see that tongues, revival preaching, purity, immersion in the Holy Spirit and the power of God have been and are being restored. Restoration to Israel includes the rebirth of the actual nation, Jerusalem, a place of leadership among the nations as a light of technology, military leader, and the believing remnant of Jews. Yes, God is restoring!

But not everything will be restored beforeHe returns. He remains in heaven not until all things are restored, but until the time comes for the restoration.

The Third Temple is the Temple of the Antichrist!
But is the third temple a part of that restoration? Simply put, no. The third temple is absolutely a part of end-time prophecy, but that doesn’t make it a blessing. The antichrist is part of end-time prophecy, but I am not praying for his appearance! And I am certainly not excited about it, or giving money to his campaign, as many believers are to the Third Temple Institute. The third temple will be a temple of deception, leading Jewish people back to a pre-Yeshua sacrificial religion.

I thought this was an interesting article from a Messianic Jewish community news source.

TT raises a very good point. Temple 3 will serve God for only a few years. It will be built, in accordance with prophecy, and will be dececrated at the mid point of the Trib. So Temple 3 has maybe 5 to 10 years, or possibly less, to serve God. After that the AC takes over the Temple for 3.5 years until it is destroyed.
The eternal Temple will be #4.
If anyone wants a fascinating read type in New Temple into any search engine. The amount of work in process is astounding.

God sanctioned the first two Temples built by Solomon and by Zerubbabel. The forth Temple will be built by Jesus Christ. The passage of Isaiah 66:1-6 indicates there is a Temple that God does not sanction, and that would be the third Temple, the one that will be in place by the mid-point of Tribulation.

Thus saith Jehovah, Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: what manner of house will ye build unto me? and what place shall be my rest? For all these things hath my hand made, and so all these things came to be, saith Jehovah: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and that trembleth at my word. He that killeth an ox is as he that slayeth a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as he that breaketh a dog’s neck; he that offereth [a]an oblation, as he that offereth swine’s blood; he that burneth frankincense, as he that blesseth an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations: I also will choose their [c]delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did that which was evil in mine eyes, and chose that wherein I delighted not.
Hear the word of Jehovah, ye that tremble at his word: Your brethren that hate you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, have said, Let Jehovah be glorified, that we may see your joy; but it is they that shall be put to shame. A voice of tumult from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of Jehovah that rendereth recompense to his enemies. Isaiah 66:1-6


So, I know there will be a third Temple and I know that it will be open for business by the mid-point of Tribulation. I get excited when I read about all the planning and preparations that are going on now for the eventual construction of the third Temple. It’s not for the Temple itself that I’m excited, but because it is a sign that we’re living towards the very end of the end times.

The Temple that will be built and desecrated by the anti-christ will never be a house for God but is more a symbol of Israel continuing in its own ways, apart from God, a people deluded, stumbling about outside of the will of God who chose them to be His people.

Thankfully, in a very short time after the third Temple opens for business Israel will know National repentance and the King of Kings will return and this era will come to an end, and the Millennial Reign will begin.
