3RD TEMPLE UPDATE
Grant Jeffrey was on Benny Hinn today November 29,05. He was talking on the future 3RD and 4TH Temples to be rebuilt very Shortly.
In Daniel 9:27 we see that before the future 7 year peace treaty is signed the 3RD Temple has to be rebuilt. And in Ezekiel chapters 40-48 we see a 4TH Temple rebuilt by the Messiah 25 miles north of Jerusalem after the 7 yr tribulation is over and the 1000 year reign of the Messiah begins from Davids throne.
First we go to Ezekiel 44:1-3 The East Gate will never be opened until Messiah walks through it in the future. to Rule and reign.
Then he brought me back by way of the outer Gate of the sanctuary, the one facing east; and it was shut. 2-Adonai said to me, "This gate will remain shut; it will not be opened, and no one will go through it; because Adonai (Lord), God of Israel, has gone through it. Therefore, it is to be kept shut. 3-Only the prince, since he is a prince, is to sit there to eat his meal before Adonai; he is to enter through the vestibule of the gate and leave the same way.
We go back also to Ezekiel 43:1-3 After this, he brought me to the gate facing east. 2-There I saw the glory of the God of Israel approaching from the east. His voice was like the sound of rushing water, and the earth shone with his glory. 3-The vision seemed like the vision I had seen when i came to destroy the city; also the visions were like the vision I had seen by the K'var River; and I fell on my face. 4-Adonai's glory entered the house through the gate facing the east.
Now we go to Revelation 11:1-2 to see this 3RD Temple being rebuilt.
I was given a measuring rod like a stick and told, "Get up, and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count how many people are worshipping there! 2-But the court outside the Temple, leave that out; don't measure it; because it has been given to the Goyim (Nations), and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months (3 1/2 YRS).
I never knew that the temples have to be built in front of a gate, so the priest can enter and go directly into the Temple.
If that is the case then the 3RD Temple can not be built on the Dome of the Rock because the East gate would not lead directly to the Temple. But 100 yards to the North of the Dome of the Rock by the Dome of the spirits there is all kinds of room to build the 3RD Temple and the East gate lines up perfectly with the bibles description of were the 3RD Temple will be rebuilt.
Daniel 9:24 say that JERUSALEM will be the main goal in the future.
Seventy weeks (70x7=490 yrs) have been decreed for your people (Israelis) and for your holy city for putting an end to the transgression, for making an end of sin, for forgiving iniquity, for bringing in everlasting justice, for setting the seal on vision and prophet, and for anointing the especially Holy Place (Temple Mount and Jerusalem).
9:25 Know, therefore, and discern that 7 weeks of years (7x7=49YRS) will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until an annointed prince comes. It will remain built for 62 weeks (62x7=434YRS), with open spaces and moates; but these will be troubled times. 26-Then, after 62 weeks (434YRS), Messiah will be cut off and have nothing. The people of a prince yet to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary (THE ROMANS), but his end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed untill the war is over.
Notice in these passages its ISRAEL and JERUSALEM were all the action is here , 70 weeks are determined 490 years, but up to now there is only 69 weeks fulfilled (483 years). so we still have a 7 YR future time when GOD once again deals with ISRAEL and JERUSALEM once again. to end all the troubles and bring in peace.
But first Israel had to become a nation again Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you from amoung the Nations, gather you from all the countries, and return you to your own soil.
Then Ezekiel 37 These bones are the whole house of Israel coming back to life and having a great army.
And Matthew 24 32-35 says Israel would literally be born before summer may or spring is just before summer starts as we read.
Now let the fig tree (Israel) teach you its lesson: when its branches begin to sprout and leaves appear (Springtime) , you know that summer is approaching. 33-In the same way, when you see all these things (All the signs Jesus told us to look for), you are to know that the time is near, right at the door. 34-Yes! I tell you that this people (A Generation) will certainly not pass away before all these things happen. 35-Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Ok so we see ISRAEL is now a nation but notice JERUSALEM will be involved allso so we have to go to Luke 21:24 to see that JERUSALEM will become property of the ISRAELIS.
21:24 Some will fall by the edge of the sword, others will be carried into all the countries of the Goyim (nations), and JERUSALEM will be trampled down by the nations until the age of the nations has run its course.
Well on June 5-10, 1967 the age of nations has run its course. So we see ISRAEL had to be in control of JERUSALEM before the last age would come into force.
After Israel has control of Jerusalem what happens next as we read on.
Luke 21:25-26 There will appear SIGNS in the sun,moon and stars; and on earth, nations will be in anxiety and bewilderment at the sound and surge of the sea, 26-as people faint with fear at the prospect of what is overtaking the world; for the powers in heaven will be shakin (Earthquakes,climate change,Ozone depletion,Terrorism ETC...)
Well now Israel and Jerusalem are once again United now we go back to Daniel 9:27 to see this final 1 week or 7 year period called the tribulation that was predicted to bring in the age of peace by Messiah ruling and reigning from Davids throne in Jerusalem.
9:27 He (The EU PRESIDENT) will make a firm (Strong) Covenant with leaders for 1 week ( 7 YEARS). For half of the week ( 3 1/2 YRS) he will put a stop to the sacrifice and the grain offering. On the wing of detestable things the desolator will come and continue until the already decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator (THE FUTURE EU PRESIDENT THAT SIGNS THIS 7 YR PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL/ARABS AND MANY).
So we see here that the 3RD Temple has to be rebuilt before the 7 year peace treaty is signed.
How will this come about.
Grant Jeffrey thinks that the Russians and Arabs will march in Ezekiel 38-39 ,will be destroyed and this will allow Israel to rebuild the 3RD Temple.
I believe however the 3RD TEMPLE will be built as a result that Israel has the deed to prove they own the Temple Mount (THE JERUSALEM COVENANT). And that Israel will rebuild the 3RD Temple 100 yards North of the dome of the rock, by the dome of the Spirits. All kinds of space here to rebuild the 3RD TEMPLE.
I also believe all nations will get involved when it comes down to the final status talks on JERUSALEM. I just think Russia and the Arabs won't march to Israel till just before the 3 1/2 year mark of the 7 year tribulation. But maybe Grant could be right the Ezek 38+39 war might be fought before the future peace treaty is signed, and with 5/6 or 85% of Islam destroyed, they would be no threat to stop Israel from rebuilding the 3RD TEMPLE.
Now we go to the end of the 7 yr treaty when the true MESSIAH (JESUS) returns to earth bodily to rule and reign for 1000 years.
Now at this point im not sure if the EARTHQUAKE AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION DESTROYS THE 3RD TEMPLE OR NOT. The last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation, the EU WORLD POLITICIAN WILL BE SITTING IN IT PROCLAIMING TO BE GOD, SO IT WILL BE DEFILED and might be destroyed when Jesus returns to earth bodily.
Or 2ndly Jesus will not destroy it at this time , he will cleanse it and rule from the 3RD Temple until the 4TH Temple gets built. Since Jesus enters through the east gate to the Temple in the future.
This fourth Temple Grant Jeffrey says will be built 25 miles North of Jerusalem since this 4TH TEMPLE of Ezekiel 40-48 will be 1 mile in length by 1 mile in width, that big of a Temple will not fit on the Temple Mount.
The 3RD Temple might be destroyed since it says the MESSIAH will be in charge of rebuilding the 4TH Temple. And he cant sit in the 3RD and be 25 miles away directing the work of the 4TH TEMPLE.
Only time will tell exactly what will happen but I know Israels and our 1 GOD will make everything come to pass in his time.
WE ALL PRAY COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS, KING OF JERUSALEM, KING OF THE WORLD. AND RULER FROM THE WORLD CAPITAL JERUSALEM FOR 1000 YRS , THEN FOREVER.
