How will the temple be rebuilt? One possibility..

Postby BuckeyeNut2002 on Wed Feb 11, 2004 5:47 pm

I just thought I would see what you all thought on how this might take place. Many people have thought that the Muslim Dome of the Rock was built on the exact same spot as the temple. They've said that it could be destroyed or something, and it is pretty amazing that that Muslims could ever be persuaded to tear it down. I have thought for awhile though that another possibility is that the third temple could be allowed by the Antichrist to be rebuilt to the north of the Dome of the Rock. I'll explain why I believe this is very likely the case.<br>
<br>
"All the walls which were there were high, except the wall in the east, so that the priest who burned the heifer, standing on the top of the Mount of Olives, and directing himself to look, saw through the gateway of the sanctuary, at the time when he sprinkled the blood." Mishnah, Middot 2:4<br>
<br>
When the priest was on the top of the Mount, the walls were low enough that the priest could see through the only gate on the east side of the mount, the Golden Gate, which lined up with the entrance into the sanctuary. The interesting thing is that the gate is to this day a good ways north of the Dome of the Rock. I think this is in agreement with what Scripture says about the temple.<br>
<br>
When Ezekiel saw the vision of the temple in Jerusalem, he wrote in 40:2, "In the visions of God He brought me into the land of Israel and set me down upon a very high mountain, on the south side of which there was what seemed to be the structure of a city." Later on, as the angel showed Ezekiel the design of the temple, 42:18-20 says, "He measured the south side, five hundred reeds witht he measuring reed. He turned about to the west side and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall round about, the length five hundred reeds and the breadth five hundred, to make a separation between that which was holy [the temple proper] and that which was common [the outer area]." Some Bibles translate that as the the area which was profane.<br>
<br>
However, Ezekiel 43:4-8 is what really makes me think about this. The angel has brought Ezekiel to the only gate that faces east. It says that the glory of the God of Israel came from the east. It goes on to say, "And the glory of the Lord entered the temple by the gate facing east. Then the Spirit caught me up and brought me into the inner court, and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple. And I heard One speaking to me out of the temple, and a Man stood by me. And He [the Lord] said to me, Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever; and My holy name the house of Israel shall no more profane, neither they nor their kings, by their [idolatrous] harlotry, nor by the dead bodies and monuments of their kings, nor by setting their threshold by My thresholds and their doorposts by My doorposts, with a mere wall between Me and them. They have profaned My holy name by their abominations which they have committed; therefore I have consumed them with my anger." If you put this together with the earlier passage about the wall between the temple proper and the common area.<br>
<br>
In addition, Revelation 11:1, 2 says, "A reed [as a measuring rod] was then given to me, [shaped] like a staff, and I was told: Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar [of incense], and [number] those who worship there. But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God; omit that, for it is given over to the Gentiles (the nations), and they will trample the holy city underfoot for 42 months (three and one-half years)."<br>
<br>
Where the Jews said the temple was located, combined with these verses taken together, really makes me wonder if in this peace agreement, that the Israelis might be allowed to build their temple next to the Dome of the Rock right in line with the only east gate. What do you guys think?<br>
<br>
God Bless you all,<br>

i think they may level the entire structure due to an earthquake or collapse, and rebuild one large temple dignifying all three. just a thought.<br>

The Bible says that He (Christ) will not share his abode with another. It could just be that it will be the same way with the Temple. Maybe God doesn't want to share his abode with a false god. <br>
<br>
I have wondered how it would all come about, but when I see the earthquakes happening in Israel, maybe God will destroy their mosque to rubble by a strong earthquake. <p></p><i></i>

<br>
Yes, our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, no arguement there. What I was trying to say is, maybe God will not want to have a land share concerning the Temple.<br>
<br>
IMO: I can't see anything but the Temple, and the Temple only on Temple Mount. But like I said, that is my own opinion. <p></p><i></i>

The Third Temple?

Postby Ragnarok on Fri Feb 13, 2004 7:07 pm

Ok...next question. If God resides in our bodies...what does He care if there is another temple?<br>
<br>
He didn't reside in the second one and I see nothing in scripture that says He will reside in a rebuilt one.<br>
<br>
In fact, I'll take it a step further... Isn't a rebuilt temple actually a type of "abomination"<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> as the jews will restart the sacrifices, which were abolished by the death and resurrection of Jesus, isn't a rebuilt temple actually Israel denying Christ, once again??? <p></p><i></i>

we must remember that Ezekiels vision of the dry bones is that Israel would be brought back in unbelief. It is evident today that is the case...<br>
Here is what I think, I think we are about to see God deal witht the arabs because they are going too far...the damascus thing, king of gaza thing etc...<br>
and what I suspect is Israel may finally begin to think or believe that something supernatural is taking place but because they have yet to understand Yeshua as the true Messiah, they are compelled to reinstitute the old ways not realizing they are making way for the AC. <br>
They already claim the ancient land title and use the Magen David for their symbol so they are part way there...<br>
and I also think that when Yeshua physically comes and when the mountain splits, the temple or whatever is left of it after what the AC does, will be gone....<br>
just a thought<br>

Ragnarok:<br>
<br>
The nation of Israel has rejected Jesus, and the Temple is sure proof that they deny Christ as their King.<br>
<br>
Why would God even want to enter this temple? Good question, I really never gave it much thought, and I guess my previous answer that God will not want to share his abode with another just could be wrong, but I will say this, even though the nation of Israel has rejected Christ as their Messiah, the Temple is built to the one and only true God of Abraham, Isiac, and Jacob, and He will not want (IMO) to share even that much.<br>

I don't think it even has to be an earthqualke that could level the Dome, it could just be all that work that they are doing under the Mount.<br>
<br>
The main reasons I believe that the temple could be allowed to be rebuilt north of the Dome is because the Jews believe that the temple has to be built on the exact same spot as the previous two. Also, in Ezekiel's vision, he saw what he called a "structure of a city" south from the temple. If you go to Jerusalem and look at the layout, the city is mainly to the west of the temple mount. There are no tall buildings south of the temple mount, none of them are visible from the north end of the temple mount. I believe that the "structure of a city" which Ezekiel saw could have been the Dome of the Rock.<br>

I agree with what you said. The Jews consider themselves still under the old covenant, even though the new has replaced it. So any temple that they build and offer sacrifices in will no longer really mean anything. They will be under the old covenant until Christ returns, at which time the elect Jews will enter into the new covenant. The prophets did say that sacrifices and offerings will be given during the seven years and then cut off, and it also talks about a temple being built after Christ returns.<br>

I agree. The Jews already have a cornerstone of the third temple, they've made all the decorations of the temple, the priests' garments, the Levites have been training. I think that the Jews are definitely ready to go at a moment's notice as soon as things work out for them to build it. There is a lot of financial support from American Jews to help with this as well.<br>

another temple

Postby orangemailman on Sun Feb 15, 2004 12:22 pm

Don't forget. There will be another godly temple.<br>
<br>
Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: 13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. <br>
<br>
Christ will be prophet, priest, and king all at once.<br>
<br>
Have fun and stay busy - Luke 19:13<br>
