The "Third Temple" Prophecy Refuted
« on: Wed Apr 22, 2020 - 13:59:46 »
There is no literal physical third temple that will be built.
The third temple doctrine comes from 2 Thessalonians 2:4.
"Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so
that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."

It indeed is speaking of the man of sin, the false messiah, the Antichrist.
But it is not speaking of a literal temple.

Here is commentary from Ellicott on 2 Thessalonians 2:4.
"Though the image is drawn from the Jewish temple, we may say with some confidence that
St. Paul did not expect the Antichrist as a prose fact to take his seat in that edifice.
Neither is the metaphor to be pressed into a mere synonym of "the Church" (1Corinthians 3:17).
The words, so far need not necessarily mean that the Man of Sin will make special
claims upon the Christian community as such. Rather, the whole phrase, "taking his seat in the
temple of God," is a poetical or prophetical description of usurping divine prerogatives
generally: not the prerogatives of the true God alone, but whatever prerogatives have been offered
to anything "called God." Though the prophecy might be fulfilled without any symbolical
act (e.g., of assuming any material throne), yet the spontaneousness ("himself") and the openness
("showing himself") seem so essentially parts of the prophecy as of necessity to imply that the
Man of Sin will make formal claim to occupy that central seat in men's minds and aspirations
which is acknowledged to be due to God alone. The formal making of this claim seems to be identical
with the apocalypse of the Man of Sin, the act by which he is manifested or revealed."

So what does this mean in layman's terms? It means that Antichrist is going to be revealed in
a very grandiose way, as the Lord Jesus Christ will when He comes in the clouds and every eye will see Him.
So shall the Antichrist come, everyone will see him and know of him. All those that are not the true elect
of God will be deceived by the false messiah, the Antichrist into believing that he really is the messiah, that
he really is God. In their minds, which is what the temple of God in this scripture is referring to,
the minds of men and women, in their minds the Antichrist will actually be God to them.

So there is no end time 7 year tribulation period, and there is no literal physical third temple.
What are we looking for? Were looking for the revealing of the false messiah, the Antichrist.
He will deceive many into believing that he is the messiah, that he is God.
God's true elect, those that strictly obey His word, His commandments, His will in this life, that
have made a sacrifice of their lives to devote it to God, to live for God and not themselves, these Christians
will be martyred for their faith. Very few will survive to the end of the world when the Lord returns to
be caught up in the rapture.

The Daniel 11:31 "abomination of desolation" prophecy that Jesus quoted in His Olivet discourse for the end requires... a standing temple in Jerusalem in order to be fulfilled.

The coming of the "man of sin" to sit in the "temple of God" and proclaim himself as God, according to Apostle Paul in 2 Thess.2:3-4, also requires a standing stone temple in Jerusalem at the end for it to be fulfilled.

The Matthew 24:23-26 prophecy Jesus gave about 'a spurious Messiah' coming to Jerusalem and the deceived say 'Christ is here, or there', requires a temple be built in association with his coming, because per Zechariah 6 Christ is build the temple when he comes. The false Messiah/Antichrist will try to mimic that, and the orthodox Jews in Jerusalem will oblige.

The Revelation 13 Scripture about the setup of the "image of the beast" idol in false worship also requires a standing stone temple in Jerusalem for the end, because that idol is what the "abomination of desolation" in Daniel 11:31 is about. That "another beast" of Rev.13 is the same one Jesus warned of in Matthew 24:23-26 that is to come working the great signs and wonders to deceive the whole world with.

Thus there is PLENTY Bible Scripture to show the prophetic requirement of a standing Jewish temple in Jerusalem for the end in association with the false working of the coming Antichrist/pseudo-Messiah.

  DPR is right.

  The Jews have plans to build a new temple in Jerusalem; they recently consecrated an altar to be placed in it, & are breeding the animals such as red heifers to be used in temple rites. The only thing holding them back is TIMING. They already have the materials gathered, & the instruments to be used in its rites made. They can erect it very quickly when the time is right.

And what if they are just Satan's agents pushing the false literal third temple, teasing those that are watching and waiting and making them watch for false signs. When the real temple is already built, your mind. Ready to receive the antichrist if you aren't prepared in faith with God.

  It's my faith in God and His word that shapes my belief about a new temple in Jerusalem. That temple must be built so the coming beast/antichrist can commit the AOD in it.

  There shoulde be no doubt those people are Jews, given their history. While the genealogies before the Roman conquest are gone, and many of them are of "mixed" ancestry, many of them have genealogies fromthe 1st century AD when there was no doubt they were Jews. remember, God is not finished with the Jews or the rest of Israel. He promised to restore them, and He will. This should be apparent by the rise of modern Israel from nothing !

  The Jews' rejection of Jesus as Messiah won't last forever. Jesus is gonna make Himself known to them in no uncertain manner.

  But, meanwhile, back at the ranch...

   Paul wrote in 2 Thess. 2:4 that the man of sin would sit in the temple & proclaim himself to be God. this didn't happen in the old temple, but, as Scripture is always 100% correct, it WILL happen, but there must be a temple for it to happen in. And the Jews will build it in Jerusalem.

There will never be another Jewish temple.  Most Christians believe that Christ was the forever ultimate sacrifice of Himself.  Thus,  NO Christian should be looking to the Jewish "LAW" ever again for salvation (forgiveness of sins).

  Nuffin in Scripture about Jerusalem being surrounded by hostiles when the AOD occurs.

A standing temple was there in Revelation 11.  That's why you fools can't reconcile in the internal evidence in Revelation being written well before #2 temple was destroyed.
 Before AD70.

 Speaking of "fools"...

John was on Patmos, which had no temple of God's on it, so, obviously, the temple he was told to measure was in a vision & not the one in Jerusalem, whose measurements were known.

Rev.21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,


John was in the spirit. That's why you can't understand the prophecy.

Yes, and his vision's fulfillment is still future, of course.

Not the same temple.

But what will you call it when another temple is rebuilt as prophesied.

They are getting ready. They are getting ready because of their understanding of their religious writings.

What then.

You gonna say it will make for lovely weddings?

  The Jews have all the material ready to build a new temple. They have the "blueprint" of the previous ones to guide them. They're breeding the animals to be used in temple rites, having already bred a supply of red heifers. They have all the instruments made. And they recently consecrated an altar to be placed in it. They will swiftly build it within a few days.

  Now, how they're gonna come by the fire God kindled in the tabernacle long ago, I don't know, but some clever priest will come up with a solution when the time comes.

  The Jews don't wanna start a huge war with Moslems, so they'll wait til the timing is right. One thing not everyone knows is that some professors from Hebrew University, illegally exploring some of the tunnels underneath the Dome of the Rock, found that the Dome is NOT built on the old temple site. it might be a little farther away than first believed. Jewish researchers are diligently trying to find its exact site. While police are preventing any more illegal exploration underneath the Dome, there are many other places where clues may be found without going into Islamic territory.

  It won't REALLY be a "temple of God" since JESUS won't be worshipped in it, but the world will view it as such. it'll be the place where the antichrist will commit the "abomination of desolation".

  When this temple is built, it'll be a huge gut punch for prets, but they'll make more excuses, as all purveyors of bunk do. Most won't abandon their false doctrine, even when faced with such overwhelming evidence against it.
