As Jan Markel beautifully put it, Israel is God’s prophectic timepiece with Jerusalem as the minute hand and the Temple mount as the small hand!
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: All eyes might be on the Temple Mount after the UAE-Israel Abraham Accords deal!: When he dedicated the Temple he built on Mount Moriah, King Solomon prayed that God’s house would be a center of prayer for all the peoples of the world. Now, in the wake of the recent Abraham Accords – the normalization agreement entered into by Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain – the possibility exists that Solomon’s aspiration could be recreated.
“For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:5-7 (KJB)
But while the Jewish writer of the Jerusalem Post article cited above is rejoicing over the prospect, Bible believers know that what’s coming is the false peace and safety that will lure the Jews into the time of Jacob’s trouble!
In the wake of the recent Abraham Accords, the possibility exists that for the first time we could soon be seeing Muslims and Jews side by side on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem prayer together.
Israel is about to choose their Messiah…THE WRONG ONE!!!
TOP RABBI : MESSIAH’S NAME WILL SOON BE REVEALED! Rabbi Nir Ben-Artzi (pictured, right) told Israelis that God is ready to reveal the name of the Messiah, and urged the people to “be in unity” and “get ready!”
One of the greatest tragedies of Israel’s history was the loss of the Holy Temples in Jerusalem. When the Second Temple was destroyed in AD 70, the focal point of Israel’s spiritual life disappeared along with it.In its place, the Dome of the Rock was erected between 689 and 691, after Muslims captured Jerusalem from the Christian Byzantines in the 7th century. It was deliberately built on the place where the First and Second Temples once stood to protect the sacred rock, although many Muslim leaders and professors around the world now insist that the Holy Temples never existed.
Al-Quds University Islamic law lecturer Husam Al-Faqih said on Palestinian TV: “It has been proven historically, and also proven by archaeological excavations conducted by Jewish and non-Jewish archaeologists, that there are no archeological findings that are connected to the Jews. All of the excavations that were conducted at the bottom of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and around it have all yielded Islamic antiquities or ancient Roman antiquities, and there is no proof of the Jews’ claim that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is holy to them.” (PalWatch)
In fact, Palestinian construction workers dumped 400 truckloads of earth into the Kidron valley in the 1990s as they illegally excavated Solomon’s Stables to convert it into a mosque, with no archaeological oversight.The Temple Mount Sifting Project along with thousands of volunteers are recovering Temple period artifacts from that debris.
THE FIRST TEMPLE “When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” (2 Samuel 7:12–13)
David, the shepherd boy who fought Goliath and became King, desired to build a permanent dwelling place for God. But because he had been a man of war and had too much blood on his hands, the task of building the First Temple was given to his son Shlomo (Solomon), whose name in Hebrew means peace.That first Temple, built by King Solomon around 1000 BC was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC on Tisha B’av (the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av), and the Jews were exiled in Babylon.
As Jeremiah prophesied, the Jewish people returned to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon (today Iraq) after 70 years. “This is what the Lord says: ‘When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place.’” (Jeremiah 29:10)
And about 100 years earlier, Isaiah prophesied the name of the Persian King who would enable the Jewish people to return to Jerusalem, specifically to rebuild the Temple.
Isaiah 44:28: Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”’
THE SECOND TEMPLE When the Jews returned to Jerusalem from their Babylonian captivity, they re-built the Temple, which was expanded four hundred years later by King Herod and called “The Glorious Temple.” Today we call it the Second Temple. But this Temple also did not stand.
In AD 70 (586 years later), on the same terrible calendar day of Tisha B’Av (the ninth day of Av) that the First Temple was destroyed, the Roman army, led by General Titus, annihilated Jerusalem, razed the Second Temple to the ground, and sent the Jewish People into exile.
For the next nineteen centuries, Jews in exile longed to return to the Promised Land and see the Temple standing once again on the Temple Mount. Devout Jews still pray three times daily: “May it be Thy will that the Temple be speedily rebuilt in our days.” After such a long wait, our generation may live to see the Temple standing in Jerusalem.
The Holy Mandate “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8)
God has never withdrawn His command that Israel build Him a Sanctuary.In fact, the Prophet Haggai rebuked the people for neglecting the work of rebuilding the Lord’s house. “Then the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai. ‘Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?’” (Haggai 1:3–4)
Under the leadership of Zerubbabel, the work of rebuilding the Temple began. “So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant of the people. They came and began to work on the house of the Lord Almighty, their God.” (Haggai 1:14)
Several organizations have taken up this calling, but one in particular has already made the preparations. Most of the preparations for the building of the Third Temple are already completed by an organization called The Temple Institute, which is located in the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem’s walled Old City.
As part of its mandate, this Orthodox Jewish organization has completed the restoration and construction of many sacred vessels necessary for use in service for the Holy Temple. These are no mere replicas or models, but authentic vessels, made from gold, copper, silver, and wood. Included among these are gold and silver vessels used in the incense and sacrificial services of the Cohen HaGadol (High Priest) and the Levitical musical instruments. Also completed after years of painstaking research and development is the sacred garment or ephod of the Cohen HaGadol as well as his choshen (breastplate) and the tziz zahav (golden crown).
What is about to unfold will set in motion arrival of Antichrist and Armageddon, followed by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ involving a global push to build the Third Temple in Jerusalem.
It’s happening right now behind the scenes in clandestine negotiations between global powers and religious leaders. These astonishing claims, regardless how incredible they may seem, will be unveiled sooner than most expect.
Connected to all this, when the time is right, US President Donald Trump will, as the rabbis in Israel hold, play a key role by speaking in favor of the Third Temple’s construction. When that happens, it will ignite the single most important and prophetic event in our lifetime! Unfortunately for those who at first find great joy in the Temple’s reconstruction, exuberance will be short-lived and will ultimately cave to terror.
The 3rd Temple is ready to be built! • The architectural plans for the Third Temple have already begun! • The Sanhedrin—the nascent tribunal that has styled itself after the Second Temple-era Jewish court—recently instructed Jerusalem mayoral candidates to include in their plans the building of the Third Temple! • The Sanhedrin invited seventy nations to dedicate the altar for the Third Temple! • Evangelical Christians and Jews gathered in Jerusalem not long ago for an interfaith conference aimed at joining efforts to build the Third Temple for inaugurating the “Messianic Era”! • Jews are increasingly demanding access to the Temple Mount with visions of building the Third Temple! • A newborn red heifer was certified by a board of rabbis as fulfilling all the biblical requirements for Temple service, a prerequisite for “the biblically mandated process of ritual purification for impurity that results from proximity or contact with a dead body. Because the elements needed for this ceremony have been lacking since the destruction of the Second Temple, all Jews today are considered ritually impure, thereby preventing the return of the Temple service” That is, until now. • A growing number of rabbis in Israel view Donald Trump as a Cyrus-like figure, whom the God of Israel raised up to initiate the “Messianic era” and the construction of the Third Temple! • Saudi Arabia, Jewish religious leaders, and Donald Trump have been negotiating behind the scenes to transfer control of Israel’s holy sites—including the Temple Mount—to the Saudis, to complete a “peace covenant” that could result in, among other things, the building of the Third Temple. • A major step forward in this scheme was accomplished with the Israel–United Arab Emirates peace agreement, or the Abraham Accord, agreed to by Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on 13 August 2020! • Even some Muslim scholars have come to believe the time has arrived to build the Third Jewish Temple!
The Temple Mount Faithful and the Temple Institute in Jerusalem are busy restoring and constructing the sacred vessels and vestments that will be used for service in the new Temple at the arrival of their “Messiah” (see http://www.templeinstitute.org). Students of Bible prophecy recognize the importance of such plans as signaling the coming of Antichrist. Old and New Testament Scriptures explain that a false Jewish messiah will appear, enthroning himself as God in the Temple in Jerusalem, but afterward, he will defile the holy place by setting up a sacrilegious object—perhaps an image of himself—in the Temple and ordering the sacrifices and offerings to cease (see Daniel 9:27; 2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
To further stipulate the role that the rabbis see Trump divinely appointed to perform, the following amazing statement is published inside the official Sanhedrin sanctioned “70 Years Israel” Redemption Coin brochure!
President Trump is advancing a prophetic process that will usher in—when the time comes—the rebuilding of the Third Temple. It is as if he is following in the footsteps of King Cyrus who pronounced, after 70 years of Jewish exile, that: Hashem, the Lord of the World, charged me to build him a house in Jerusalem.
In April of 2019, Moshe Feiglin,the head of the far-right quasi-libertarian Zehut party said that he wants to rebuild the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem immediately.
“I don’t want to build a (Third) Temple in one or two years, I want to build it now.”
Many believe that this Temple could be constructed within 6 months to a year and that initially an altar could be established on location for Temple services and needs in the interim in a matter of just a few days. A case in point is the Hanukkah dedication by the Sanhedrin in 2018. Concerning this important event, one news article reads;
“Sanhedrin Invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah Dedication of Altar for the Third Temple” Israel Breaking News (11/29/18)
“The nascent Sanhedrin released a declaration to the 70 nations for Hanukkah to be read at a ceremony in Jerusalem on the last day of the holiday. The ceremony will include the consecration of a stone altar prepared for use in the Third Temple. The declaration is intended as an invitation to the nations to participate in the Temple and to receive its blessings. The altar is currently in the form of loose stone blocks ready to be transported to the Temple Mount and stored in a manner that will enable them to be transported and assembled at a moment’s notice.”
Rabbi Yosef Berger, the son of a widely revered Hasidic leader in charge of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, told Breaking Israel News Trump will play this “final historic reparation for his entire nation.”
“No leader in history has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the Jews and Israel,” Berger said. “[Trump] has already created a great tikkun (reparation) for the Christians through his unprecedented relationship with Jerusalem. Trump is the representative of Edom that will perform that final historic reparation for his entire nation by building the Temple.”
ISRAELI RABBI SAYS HE’S ALREADY HOLDING MEETINGS WITH MESSIAH! Rabbi Yaakov Zisholtz told religious broadcaster Radio 2000 that Rabbi Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky recently told him that he (Kanievsky) is already in direct contact with the Messiah.Rabbi Zisholtz says that Kanievsky and others of the mystical “concealed” rabbis have now tasked him with informing the public of the Messiah’s imminent arrival.
PROMINENT RABBI BREAKS SILENCE: ‘MESSIAH COMING THIS YEAR!’ There have been 5,780 holidays of Rosh Hashanna since the creation of the world but if a prominent rabbi’s prediction proves true, in just a few short weeks, Rosh Hashanna number 5,781 will be quite special. Rabbi Shalom Arush, an Israeli Breslov rabbi and founder of the Chut Shel Chessed Institutions, made an entirely uncharacteristic announcement: On September 18, Jews will be celebrating the last New Year without the Messiah.
“I am going to tell you with certainty that Hashem (God, literally ‘the name) will help us meet together after Rosh Hashanna,” Rabbi Arush said in an interview last week. “And remember well what I am telling you, that this Rosh Hashana will be the last one without Moshiach (Messiah). And it could very well be that on this Rosh Hashanna the Messiah will be revealed.”
ONE LITTLE CLAUSE IN THE UAE-BAHRAIN-ISREAL PEACE DEALS HAS QUIETLY HANDED OVER THE AL AQSA COMPOUND! One little clause in the UAE-Bahrain-Israel Peace deals has quietly handed over the Al Aqsa compound to the Jews: The peace deal brokered by the United States between UAE-Israel and Bahrain has one clause embedded in the joint-statement that is expected to bring a lot of heat from the Palestinians. A clause included rather cleverly in the recent accords between Israel and Gulf Arab states indicates that the Jews will now be allowed to pray in the disputed compound of the Al-Aqsa mosque. The joint statement released between the US, Israel, and the UAE on August 13 by US President Donald Trump reads as follows:
“As set forth in the Vision of Peace, all Muslims who come in peace may visit and pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem’s other holy sites should remain open for peaceful worshippers of all faiths.” With the aforementioned clause being slipped in very intentionally by the USA and having the backing of UAE, Bahrain, and Israel–the Jews will have the right to worship in the Temple mount too. To a layman, the clause can be explicitly interpreted as, “Anything on the Mount that is not the structure of the mosque is defined as ‘one of Jerusalem’s other holy sites’ and open to prayer by all – including Jews”
The Temple Institute, the reestablished Sanhedrin and other Temple related organizations are preparing for all the required needs of an operational Third Temple. Architectural drawings exist and Levitical Priests are assigned and trained, including the required High Priest. Moreover, the Temple vessels and vestments are prepared, including the menorah, the table of showbread and the golden altar of incense.
DUBBED THE ” TEMPLE COIN” While news sources have dubbed the coin the “Trump-Cyrus” coin, the Mikdash Education Center has dubbed the coin “The Temple Coin.”
They’ve placed an image of the “Third Temple” on the back of the coin, because, according to an article in the Times of Israel, “…Trump, like Cyrus, made a ‘big declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of the holy people.’”
Some rabbis have been calling on Trump — who is a building constructor by trade — to come to Jerusalem and supervise the rebuilding of the so-called “Third Temple” himself, claiming that he’s “destined” to do so “before the coming of Messiah.”
Gold and silver coins that pictured images of the heads of US President Donald Trump and King Cyrus on one side and the coming Jewish Temple on the other. These coins are intended to generate revenues to be used toward the coming Temple. President Donald Trump made an historic declaration that Jerusalem is the “One and Only Capital of the Jewish State of Israel.” Soon after, Trump proved to the world that he not only makes declarations, but also acts upon his beliefs: He transferred the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. And following this historic event, the TRUMP TEMPLE COINS were minted.
The concept was conceived by Professor Hillel Weiss and the coins were produced by the Mikdash Educational Center in Jerusalem. In the past year, these unique coins have found their way to thousands of people worldwide- from North and South America, China, to Australia, all around Europe and even to Iran – all who support Israel, the Holy Temple, and Trump’s declaration. Now they can be obtained in solid silver too!! The Trump Temple Coins are not just medallions or souvenirs. They are precious coins that have an entire story to tell. The main idea conveyed by these coins is that President Trump is initiating a prophetic process that will eventually facilitate, when the time comes, the rebuilding of the Third Temple. His actions mirror those of King Cyrus who declared to the Jewish people, in exile for 70 years, that “Hashem, The Lord of the World, charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem.”
On Monday, March 5, 2018, in Washington D.C., shortly after the Temple Coins were produced, Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed President Trump and also compared the President to King Cyrus.
“I want to tell you that the Jewish people have a long memory; so we remember the proclamation of the great king, Cyrus the Great, the Persian king, 2,500 years ago. He proclaimed that the Jewish exiles in Babylon could come back and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem. We remember a hundred years ago, Lord Balfour, who issued the Balfour Proclamation that recognized the rights of the Jewish people in our ancestral homeland. We remember that seventy years ago, President Harry S. Truman was the first leader to recognize the Jewish state. And we remember how a few weeks ago, President Donald J. Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Mr. President, this will be remembered by our people through the ages”
The message on the coin is addressed to all the “Seventy Nations”: They are called upon to accompany the Jewish People on their journey to establish the Holy Temple as a place of peace.
THE MENORAH ON THE COIN The Menorah was always the symbol of the Jewish Nation. It represents the light of the Temple spreading out to the world, as stated in Isaiah 60:3, “Nations shall walk at Your light, and kings at the brightness of Your rising”.
THE RED HEIFER AND THE 3RD TEMPLE! The convergence focusing on a Middle East peace deal in the Abraham Accords and also a Red Heifer that is viable for fulfilling the ordnance of purification for the Jewish Temple are signs pointing to how the Covenant of Daniel’s Prophecy is nearing!
Rabbi Azaria Ariel, traveled to an undisclosed ranch in Israel to lead the Temple Institute’s efforts to raise a red heifer for the performance of the commandment of producing the purifying ashes of the red heifer. He recently inspected the current red heifer candidates and shared their status. One of the two more mature candidates is still very viable, even though it has a few hairs which aren’t sufficiently red, as required by halacha (Jewish law). She bears a patch of hair that is not currently sufficiently red, but there is a very real possibility that these hairs will redden before too long. And then we will return and check her again, with the hope that she will at that time be kosher for the performance of the commandment of the red heifer.”
Scripture indicates that the Temple will be standing on its original location on the Temple Mount before the return of Yeshua (Jesus).
“Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.” (Daniel 9:25)
The fact that the vessels, garments, and even the building plans are already prepared has great prophetic significance for those who await the return of Messiah Yeshua!
Jesus said that when the fig tree (a symbol for Israel) blossoms, His return is imminent—He is right at the door.
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.” (Matthew 24:32–34)
The fact that Israel was reborn as a nation in 1948 is key indicator that this generation is the end-time generation!
