Consider The Jews

Koolulam | Al Kol Eleh | Israel’s 70th Independence Day | 4.9.18 The video shows Jews celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations recognized Israeli statehood. Quoted at the bottom of this article, is the truth of an attitude that remains today, and seriously affects individual Jews and the nation of Israel.

As you view the video of this article please take a serious look at the Jews who are present. Do they look like the murderous monsters that the majority of United Nations countries portray Jews as being, or as our nation’s fake media maliciously broadcasts? Jews are wonderful people! I have first-hand knowledge of Jews, having grown up with many of them in my city. And, yes! Jews defend themselves if they are attacked, either as a nation, or as individuals. In the video you will notice that the Jews are seeking God’s blessings on their nation, which apparently has exited the vernacular of America’s Congressional Democrats.

The designation of “Pharisee” fits many Jews serving in the US Congress. Consider the celebration of the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem: “No congressional Jews; no congressional Democrats,” were present. Never has indifference, lack of respect, or hatred toward Jews and Israel, been so obvious in much of the United States, and throughout much of the world, as is the case now.

Jerusalem has been the Jewish Capital of Israel ever since the Jews entered that land under the leadership of Joshua in 1451 B.C. When the U.S. Embassy in Israel was moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the Democrat party voiced loud opposition to that move. U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all said that the U.S. Embassy should be located in Jerusalem, but only President Trump followed through and moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Only Republicans went to Jerusalem to show support for Israel when the embassy move took place. The Obama administration went all the way to the Supreme Court to block a law passed by Congress allowing American parents of children born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their birthplace on their passports https://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/19/world/middleeast/jerusalem-us-embassy-trump.html There are a number of Jews in the U.S. Congress, but none of them went to Jerusalem to show support for Israel (https://www.jns.org/republicans-bemoan-lack-of-democrats-at-us-embassy-opening-in-jerusalem/). Across the Atlantic, several hours after the ribbon-cutting ceremony in Jerusalem, the Israeli embassy in Washington hosted its annual event marking the anniversary of the nation’s founding. It’s usually a festive occasion featuring lawmakers from both sides of the aisle who go to see the ambassador and be seen. But this year, not a single currently serving Democrat was spotted in attendance (https://www.timesofisrael.com/democrats-conspicuously-absent-from-israeli-embassys-dc-party/).

On May 3, 2015, President Obama, Vice President Biden, and 58 Democrat members of the U.S. Congress did not attend a speech that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made to a joint session of Congress. Of key interest is that Vice President Biden was the President of the U.S. Senate at the time of the speech (https://www.cnn.com/2015/02/26/politics/democrats-missing-netanyahu-whip-list/).

Consider the words of Christ as he unleashes words of truth on the Jewish hypocrites of His day.

Matthew 23:23-33 New International Version (NIV) (The law in this context is the Mosaic law, which was given by God to Moses. The totality of the law can be found in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.)

23 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.

25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

29 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30 And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!

33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?

You Must Be Born Again!

Joshua Aaron – He’s Coming Again (Official Music Video) Jerusalem

Joshua Aaron sings of the truth of the return of Christ in this video. The return of Christ to earth occurs in two stages; we will discuss both. It is important that the contents of this article be understood. There are eternal consequences for those whom do not understand the details that lead to the return of Christ. Consider all parents. Consider all children. Consider all whom are living in our world.

I. Christ will return in the air to catch up His saints (not Catholic designated) from the earth. He will then take with Him, those whom have been born again, to the Presence of God The Father (This will happen prior to the time of the Tribulation. Those, whom will not have been born again, will remain on earth to undergo the persecution of the anti-christ and the judgments of God. As will be explained in this article, those whom have been born again have been made righteous through the new birth, “spiritually as righteous as Christ.” Those whom have not been born again are defiant toward Christ and are unrighteous. The tribulation is designed to judge sin and to draw unrighteous people to accept Christ as their Messiah, their Lord and Savior, with the unrighteous unborn again people of Israel being the primary focus of the tribulation; they are God’s chosen people! (Deuteronomy 7:6; Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 9:20, 24-27). By no means will born again people of the world remain on earth to suffer from the horrors of the tribulation. So, yes! You must be born again!

Note: All verses in this article come from the New American Standard Bible, 1995 Translation, unless otherwise noted.

John 14:1-6 New American Standard Bible

Jesus Comforts His Disciples – The Catching Up Of The Born Again Believers In Christ

1 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going.” 5 Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

vs 3: “I will come again and receive you to myself; where I am, there you may be also.” (Christ, God The Son, is in the Presence of God the Father in the third heaven; that is where born again believers in Christ (Jew and Gentile) will be taken by Christ, when He comes in the air, catches them up and carries them away.)

vs 6: “I am the way and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” (It is true that only by faith in Christ that we have access to God the Father. The explanation here is that, Christ will physically take born again believers in Christ to the Presence of God the Father. No other, “supposed deity,” has made such a claim. Other supporting scriptures are 1 Cor 15:50-54; 1 Thes 4:13-18.)

II. Christ will return physically to stand on the earth, at the end of the tribulation. Then, He will judge sin and deal with Jews and Gentiles whom are still alive at the end of the tribulation as to their eternity. Jews and Gentiles, whom will not have come to know Christ as Messiah during the tribulation, will be taken to judgement; they will experience immediate death and will be resurrected at the end of the millennium to stand before the great white throne judgment; from there, they will be cast into the lake of fire, which burns forever and ever. For those Jews and Gentiles, whom will have come to know Christ as Messiah during the tribulation (being born again), they will be left behind to enter the thousand-year millennium/kingdom age, where they will rule and reign with Christ. After the time of the millennium, all born again believers in Christ will enter the eternity of the “new heaven, new earth, and new Jerusalem” in the Presence of God.

References: The return of Christ to Earth at end of tribulation (Zech 14:1-16; Matt 24:29-30; Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:25-28; Jude 14-15; Rev 19:11-21). Angels will gather all Jews, “the elect,” (saved and unsaved) from all of the world (Matt 24:31). The day and time of the second coming of Christ to Earth is unknown (Matt 24:34: no such statement is made about the John 14:1-6 catching up of the saints of Christ). One Jew will be taken to judgment, the other Jew will be left to enter the kingdom (Matt 24:40-41).

III. In order for any to be caught up to heaven, as in John 14:1-6, or whether they are allowed to enter the millennium, “they must have been born again.”

A. When we see Christ, we will be like him (1 John 3:2) 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.

B. When we have been born again, we can not be unborn. God created our born again spirit; no one can undo that spiritual creation, not even us.

John 10:27-30

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

IV. Consider the seriousness of whether someone has been born again, or has not been born again. The clearly stated requirement for anyone to enter the kingdom of God is, “you must be born again,” (John 3:3). To be born again is to have your spirit made as righteous as the Spirit of God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), must inhabit the spirit of each person who is caught up in John 14:1-6, or who is allowed to enter the Kingdom in Matthew 24-25. There must be a belief in Christ as Lord and Savior; there must also be a new birth. Consider John 3:3, 3-8 3:16-18:

3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (We must be born again)

8“The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (God’s Holy Spirit creates the born again Spirit)

16“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (If we believe we have been born again; if we have been born again, we believe.)

V. Until we have been born again, our spirit can not dwell within the Spirit of God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). Unless we have been born again, we can not reside in the Kingdom Age, or in the eternal state of the new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem. Those whom have been born again will be given resurrection bodies and souls at the time of “the catching up,” to accompany their spirits that have already been born again, and are in the Presence of God (2 Cor 5:8). All of us, whom have been caught up to be in the Presence of God the Father (John 14:1-6), will have a “body, soul, and spirit,” having no flaw.

VI. Let’s consider the events that takes place after we have been born again.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. (When we are born again, we are a new creature, as it relates to our spirit).

2 Corinthians 5:21 21 “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (When we are born again, because of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, our spirit becomes as righteous as the Spirit of Christ.)

Colossians 1:27 “to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Our hope of eternal life with Christ is to have the Spirit of Christ dwelling within our spirit.)

1 John 1:5 “This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.” (In order for our spirit to dwell within the Spirit of God, we must have a spirit that is as pure as the Spirit of God.)

John 14:20 “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” (Christ explains the indwelling of the Spirit (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), in the spirit of born again believers; and the spirit of born again believers in the Spirit of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” (God’s Holy Spirit will teach Godliness to all of whom have been born again, those whom have the Holy Spirit dwelling within their spirits.)

John 15:26 “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, 27 and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning. (The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ.)

John 16:5 “But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ 6“But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8 “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. (For those whom have the Spirit of God dwelling within their spirits, there is a constant teaching of righteousness by the Holy Spirit; “concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.”That teaching go out from the born again believer to those whom will come in contact with them, the believers.)

VII. The benefits of being born again are that the believer’s born-again spirit dwells within the Spirit of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). The Holy Spirit constantly teaches the born again believers of Godly things. When Christ catches up the born again believers, they will be taken to the Judgment Seat Of Christ to receive rewards. Next, they will go to the Marriage of the Lamb, as the Bride of Christ. At the end of the tribulation, Christ and the Bride will return to earth at the Battle of Armageddon, to judge sin and to set up the Kingdom of God. Of those whom were left behind from the catching up of the saints (Jews and Gentiles), those which live through the tribulation, they will be judged as to those which will be taken to judgment, and those whom will be judged to enter the kingdom (A judgment is a judicial finding. Not all judgments end with guilty verdicts.). While in the Kingdom, the born again believers will take part in the Marriage Supper Of The Lamb, along with the Old Testament saints and the tribulation saints. During their time in the Kingdom, the believers will rule and reign with Christ for the thousand-years. No more judgments are ahead for the born again believers. Their next stop is the eternal state of the new heaven, new earth and New Jerusalem, where they will spend eternity in a state of purity, “forever.” (2 Cor 5:10, Rev 19:7-8; Rev 19:9; Rev 19:11-21; Rev 20:4-6; Rev 21:1-3; Rev 21:22-27).

VIII. WARNING. Revelation 20:15 “And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (The judgment for those whom are not born again is to spend eternity in the lake of fire.). This is a serious situation that is all too often overlooked and minimized, as to its severity, in sermons and lessons. In order for anyone to believe in Christ, they must have been exposed to the Word of God which is contained in the Holy Bible. There is a caution however, as to those whom have not been born again, in relation to detractors.

A. In this article we have discussed the need for all, including parents and children, to be born again, so that they will be able to spend their eternity in the Presence of God. In my next article, I will address the things that Satan uses to prevent us, our children, and all whom are alive in our world, from being born again.

B. The seriousness of the tribulation should not be discounted, lessened, mocked or denied. Consider the following video, as to the effects of the tribulation. Please disregard any dates that are indicated and any small children that may be shown in the video. The false prophet types of “religious” leaders will continue to preach false truths of the events that will clearly be taking place…still trying to “spiritualize” visual truth. Fake news will continue to report the obvious judgments of God, of which they had denied, and will continue to deny that they are actual judgments of God. Ungodly political leaders will finally find their places of prominence in their “total world rule,” only to be short-lived. There will be no opposition to: abortion, same-sex marriage, “no borders,” or to the demonization of Israel. The ungodly forces of humanistic: “fake news, governments, academia, education, entertainment and new world order affiliated corporations,” will rejoice, because no truly Godly forces will be present on earth to oppose their Satanic goals. Truly, the earth dwellers will continue to oppose God…even to their deaths (Rev 3:10; 6:10; 8:13; 11:10; 13:8, 13:14; 17:8). Those that find themselves left behind, and coming under the tribulation judgments of God, will experience a time of cataclysmic disorder that will be greater than that which was present, even during the time of the worldwide flood of Noah (Matthew 24:21).

Israel – Zechariah 2:8

The Murder Of Six Million Jews – German National Socialism – The Rise of the Nazis – History – National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ˈnɑːtsiɪzəm, ˈnæt-/), is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party – officially the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazism

Zechariah 2:8-9 The Message (MSG)

8-9 God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the One of Glory who sent me on my mission, commenting on the godless nations who stripped you and left you homeless, said, “Anyone who hits you, hits me—bloodies my nose, blackens my eye. Yes, and at the right time I’ll give the signal and they’ll be stripped and thrown out by their own servants.” Then you’ll know for sure that God-of-the-Angel-Armies sent me on this mission.

Most of the videos that are posted on this page are done so without comment. The first four videos show the inhumanity of the Nazi party. The Nazi party was a political party; it was voted into office by the German people, and took control of the government of Germany, to include its military.

Aaronic Benediction Hebrew Blessing Hebrew & English Version

What caused Dr. Jimmy DeYoung to focus on the nation of Israel?

Why is there so much anger against the Jewish people?

Genesis 12:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Call of Abram

1 The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

Genesis 15:18-21 The Message (MSG)

That’s when God made a covenant with Abram: “I’m giving this land to your children, from the Nile River in Egypt to the River Euphrates in Assyria—the country of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaim, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites, and Jebusites.”

Genesis 28:10-17 New International Version (NIV)

Jacob’s Dream at Bethel

10 Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. 11 When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. 12 He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. 14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. 15 I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

16 When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” 17 He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”

As you can see, the video report on the situation in Egypt and Middle East was made in 2011. As you can also see, in your mind, things have not changed much about the political instability in that area of the world. Jimmy DeYoung mentioned that the situation in the middle east correlates to the prophetic scriptures of Daniel, Chapter 11. I would like to show the passages of Daniel 11:36-45, and provide a limited commentary on that area of prophecy, that has been provided by the following individuals that are highly respected for their knowledge of the end times.

Daniel 11:36: The King is the Antichrist.
Daniel 11:40: The King Of the South is the leader of a political and military force that comes from south of the Holy Land, but the possibility is that it involves much more than only Egypt, and can be identified as an African army.
Daniel 11:40: The King of the North is more than the small territory possessed by Syria, and probably includes all the political and military forces of the lands to the north of the Holy Land.

Daniel 11:36-45: This section gives details of Antichrist’s future career, and requires reference to some details of Israel’s last days (10:14 and 12:1-2).
Daniel 11:37: “the gods of his fathers”: Antichrist will have no respect for religion or religious heritages. The phrase does not mean that Antichrist must be a Jew. He will be unkind, cruel, and inhumane.
Daniel 11:38: Antichrist’s “god” will be military power and activity.
Daniel 11:40-45: In the tribulation period, “the king of the south” and “the king of the North” will attempt a pincer movement against Antichrist (v 40). But, with Israel as his base (vs 41), he will first defeat Egypt, then Libya and Ethiopia (Sudan). “will follow at his heels” (v 43). Shall be part of his dominion.”rumors from the East and from the North” (v 44). May relate to the armies of Rev 9:13-21; 16:12). The threat of these armies will cause Antichrist to return to Israel, making his headquarters between Jerusalem and the Mediterranean (v 45). But, he will come to his end at the hands of the victorious, returning Christ (Rev 19:11-21).

Israel – Prophecy And Current Era – 7-12-2018 – The Temple

Will there be a temple on the temple mount in the last days?

Jews around the world are eagerly looking to the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. Consider the video discussion and related Scriptures that tell of things that will happen when the temple, which will be the tribulation temple, is standing in Jerusalem. The tribulation temple will be built by Jews which were not saved, and which were left behind to endure the tribulation. The tribulation temple will be destroyed prior to the construction of the Millennial Temple, which will be built by God (Ezekiel 37:26-28). The tribulation temple may be destroyed by a great earthquake that will take place at the end of the tribulation, as the Messiah/Christ returns to earth from Heaven with his born again saints, where He will set up the Kingdom Age/Millennium. The earthquake will be one of many that will quake in many places around the world, at the same time (Zechariah 14:3-5) as Christ returns with His saints for the spiritual Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 19:11-20:4). Matthew 24:29-31 describes the same event of Zechariah of Revelation.

1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.

Note: MacArthur Study Bible. 3-4. This man is not Satan, although Satan is the force behind him (v. 9) and he has motives like the desires of the devil (cf. Is. 14:13, 14). Paul is referring to the very act of ultimate apostasy which reveals the final Antichrist and sets the course for the events that usher in the Day of the Lord. Apparently, he will be seen as supportive of religion so that God and Christ will not appear as his enemies until the apostasy. He exalts himself and opposes God by moving into the temple, the place for worship of God, declaring himself to be God and demanding the worship of the world. In this act of Satanic self-deification, he commits the great apostasy in defiance of God. For the first 3½ years of the Tribulation, he maintains relations with Israel, but halts those (cf. Dan. 9:27); and for the last 3½ years, there is great tribulation under his reign (cf. Dan. 7:25; 11:36–39; Matt. 24:15–21; Rev. 13:1–8) culminating with the Day of the Lord.

Matthew 24:15-19 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Perilous Times

15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 17 Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. 18 Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

Note: MacArthur Study Bible. 24:15 “abomination of desolation.” See notes on Daniel 9:27; 11:31. This phrase originally referred to the desecration of the temple by Antiochus Epiphanes, king of Syria in the second century B.C. Antiochus invaded Jerusalem in 168 B.C., made the altar into a shrine to Zeus, and even sacrificed pigs on it. However, Jesus clearly was looking toward a yet-future “abomination of desolation.” Some suggest that this prophecy was fulfilled in A.D. 70 when Titus invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the temple (see note on v. 2). However, the Apostle Paul saw a still-future fulfillment (2 Thess. 2:3, 4), as did John (Rev. 13:14, 15)—when the Antichrist sets up an image in the temple during the future tribulation. Christ’s words here therefore look beyond the events of A.D. 70 to a time of even greater global cataclysm that will immediately precede His coming (cf. vv. 29–31).

Revelation 11:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Two Witnesses

1 Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it. 2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months. 3 And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

Note: MacArthur Study Bible. “the temple of God.” Refers to the Holy of Holies and the Holy Place, not the entire temple complex (cf. v. 2). A rebuilt temple will exist during the time of the Tribulation (Dan. 9:27; 12:11; Matt. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:4).

Israel – Prophecy And Current Era – Temple Construction

Tribulation Temple The Bible refers to a Jewish temple in Jerusalem during the tribulation time. When will it be built?

John Ankerberg Show, Published on May 28, 2018. Introduction comments: From our special 1 hour question and answer session on the book of Revelation featuring very special guests Dr. Ron Rhodes, Dr. Ed Hindson, and Dr. Mark Hitchcock.

Jews have a great interest in the reconstruction of the Jerusalem temple that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. In the opening video there is a discussion about the tribulation temple. The credentials of the participants in the discussion can be found on my blog pages, Sources and Library.

The video guests discuss the destruction of the Dome of The Rock. Please let me say that if God wants the Dome of the Rock to be destroyed, the Dome of the Rock “will be destroyed.”

The tribulation temple which will be built in Jerusalem, during the time of the tribulation, will have to be destroyed so that the Millennial Temple can be built. Per Zechariah 14:1-5, there will be a great earthquake that will take place at the end of the tribulation, as the Messiah/Christ returns from Heaven to Earth at the Battle of Armageddon; then, He will establish the Millennial Kingdom. Pay special attention to verse 4. The tribulation temple will not be “of God.” It will be built by Jews which are not believers in Messiah/Christ, and which are left behind, having missed the rapture of the saints. The tribulation temple will be built under the graces of the anti-Christ; the anti-Christ will claim himself to be God (Daniel 11:36; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4; Revelation 13:5-6). The Millennial/Kingdom-Age Temple will be built by God (Ezekiel 37:26). Ezekiel 40-48 describes the Millennial Temple. The Glory of God was Present in the Temple that Solomon built, and was finished, in 1004 B.C., per 2 Chronicles 7:1-3. The Glory of God departed the Temple, per Ezekiel’s vision of 594 B.C. (Ezekiel 10-11). The Jerusalem Temple was destroyed in 586 B.C. by Babylonian invaders (2 Kings 25:1-10). The Glory of God did not return to the temple that was rebuilt in Jerusalem in 515 B.C. (Ezra 6:13-15). It will only be during the Kingdom Age/Millennium that the Glory of God will return to the Temple, “the Millennial Temple,” (Ezekiel 43:1-3).

Following, is a chronology of events that lead from the Glory of the Lord filling the Temple, to the Glory of the Lord refilling the Temple.

The Glory of the Lord Fills the Temple

2 Chronicles 7:1-3 English Standard Version (ESV)

Fire from Heaven

1 As soon as Solomon finished his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. 2 And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord filled the Lord’s house.3 When all the people of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.”

The Glory Of God Departs From The Temple (Ezekiel 10-11)

Ezekiel 10:3-4 English Standard Version (ESV)

3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the house, when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court. 4 And the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord.

Ezekiel 10:18-20 English Standard Version (ESV)

18 Then the glory of the Lord went out from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim. 19 And the cherubim lifted up their wings and mounted up from the earth before my eyes as they went out, with the wheels beside them. And they stood at the entrance of the east gate of the house of the Lord, and the glory of the God of Israel was over them.

20 These were the living creatures that I saw underneath the God of Israel by the Chebar canal; and I knew that they were cherubim.

Ezekiel 11:22-25 English Standard Version (ESV)

22 Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, with the wheels beside them, and the glory of the God of Israel was over them. 23 And the glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city and stood on the mountain that is on the east side of the city. 24 And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me in the vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to the exiles. Then the vision that I had seen went up from me. 25 And I told the exiles all the things that the Lord had shown me.

MacArthur Note. The glory of God moved to the Mt. of Olives to which the glorious Son of God will return at the Second Advent (cf. 43:1–5; Zech. 14:4).

2 Kings 25:1-10 English Standard Version (ESV)

Fall and Captivity of Judah

1 And in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came with all his army against Jerusalem and laid siege to it. And they built siegeworks all around it. 2 So the city was besieged till the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 3 On the ninth day of the fourth month the famine was so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. 4 Then a breach was made in the city, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, by the king’s garden, and the Chaldeans were around the city. And they went in the direction of the Arabah.5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho, and all his army was scattered from him. 6 Then they captured the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah, and they passed sentence on him. 7 They slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah and bound him in chains and took him to Babylon.

8 In the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month—that was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon—Nebuzaradan, the captain of the bodyguard, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. 9 And he burned the house of the Lord and the king’s house and all the houses of Jerusalem; every great house he burned down. 10 And all the army of the Chaldeans, who were with the captain of the guard, broke down the walls around Jerusalem.

Ezra 6:13-15 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Temple Finished and Dedicated

13 Then, according to the word sent by Darius the king, Tattenai, the governor of the province Beyond the River, Shethar-bozenai, and their associates did with all diligence what Darius the king had ordered. 14 And the elders of the Jews built and prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. They finished their building by decree of the God of Israel and by decree of Cyrus and Darius and Artaxerxes king of Persia; 15 and this house was finished on the third day of the month of Adar, in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.

Anti-Christ In The Tribulation And Temple (Daniel, 2 Thessalonians, Revelation 13)

Daniel 11:36 English Standard Version (ESV)

36 “And the king shall do as he wills. He shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods. He shall prosper till the indignation is accomplished; for what is decreed shall be done.

MacArthur Note. 11:36 Then. This word points to the future “time of the end” mentioned in v. 35. Verses 36–45 discuss the career of the final Antichrist in the last 7 years before Christ’s millennial kingdom. This willful king is the final Antichrist (see notes on 7:8, 11, 12, 25; 9:27; cf. Rev. 13:4–7).

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Man of Lawlessness Anti-Christ

1 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

Revelation 13:5-6 English Standard Version (ESV)

5 And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven.

MacArthur Note. forty-two months. The final 3½ years—1,260 days—of the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7) and Daniel’s 70th week (Dan. 9:24–27), known as the Great Tribulation (see notes on 11:2; 12:6; cf. Dan. 7:25). This last half is launched by the abomination of desolations (see note on Matt. 24:15).

Zechariah 14:1-5 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Coming Day Of The Lord – A Great Earthquake

1 Behold, a day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle.

4 On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.

5 And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

The Millennial Temple Built By God

Ezekiel 37:26 English Standard Version (ESV)

26 I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore.

Ezekiel 43:1-3 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Glory of the Lord Fills the Temple

1 Then he led me to the gate, the gate facing east. 2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory. 3 And the vision I saw was just like the vision that I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and just like the vision that I had seen by the Chebar canal. And I fell on my face.
