Vatican Moves on Temple Mount 2014

Within two months of the end of Camp David the Palestinian Authority birthed the second intifada – a terrorist war against Israel, but giving Israel a continual bloody nose would not yield the result desired. Israel defeated the second intifada moving the Palestinians back to square one. Present Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has a different tactic in mind: to get the UN to step in and impose a solution on Israel. KerryNetanyahuIsrael Then US Secretary of State John Kerry restarted negotiations on July 29, 2013. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met in Washington to restart formal negotiations after a more than three year void. A nine month deadline was set which ends on April 31st 2014.

How are the talks going?  What is being worked out behind the scenes?  No one is talking, at least not to the press.  US Secretary of State John Kerry made clear at the outset of the talks he labored so intensively to restart that he would be the only one authorized to speak on their progress. “The negotiations”, he said, “would only succeed if held far from the bright camera lights.” Only if the negotiators were not forced to play to their own domestic audience after each meeting did the talks have any chance of succeeding.  Therefore, he said, he would be the only one discussing progress. But he hasn’t really said much beyond platitudes about the need for peace and the courage both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas showed in deciding to reengage.

Recently the Israeli state has been subsidizing nonprofit organizations that advocate the building of the Third Temple atop Jerusalem’s holiest site.  Over the course of the last decade, the Israel Education and the Culture Ministries have transferred substantial amounts of funding to a non-government organization known as The Temple Institute.  Should this be an indication the Palestinian Authority will need to make certain major concessions to get what it wants?  Perhaps the trump card Abbas will need to play is to gain access to the Temple Mount for Jews, a partition to allow Israel to build a Temple on the Temple Mount, until the Palestinian Authority plays this card Israel may move no further.

Add to the mix the present Israel-Vatican negotiations over the Holy Basin and this is the move that the whole world is waiting for, peace between the three great Abrahamic faiths, sealed by equal access to the Holy Basin and the most holy site of all, the Temple Mount. The term “Holy Basin” refers to the area of the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion and a variety of Christian holy sites which the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton recommended be administered under a “special regime.”  Pope Francis, celebrating his first Christmas as the Roman Catholic leader,  prayed for a “favorable outcome” to the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians, and called for dialogue to end the conflicts. Though John Kerry is not talking we can observe the parties as they jockey for position. And recognizing Bible Prophecy, knowing that we are on the verge of the Mark of the Beast One World Money System, we can also anticipate the Temple Mount play about to begin.

For years we have exposed the fallacy of the counter-reformation futurist eschatology of the seventieth week of Daniel as a completely unbiblical interpretation.  JesLeftBehindMost of the Evangelical and nominal Christian world has totally bought into this view through Seminary/Ministry indoctrination and Corporate Christian Media exposure, and not because of sound biblical interpretation.  Because they see the world stage shaping to fulfill what they have been led to believe is sound interpretation, a “Left Behind” type scenario, this false eschatology is reinforced in the mind of not only the adherents but those who have been merely exposed to the specific media.

Is it possible that false prophecy can be fulfilled?  The rapture theories have always been in dispute: pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib disputes have risen up in exclusively evangelical circles of recent history, so that when “true believers” don’t suddenly disappear this element will easily go by the wayside when all see the Jewish Temple begin to be rebuilt. Will this be a part of the great delusion that will come upon the whole earth? It seems that this great prophetic delusion has already overcome practically the entire Evangelical and Christian World!

Let me quote the Jewish Israeli writer, Joel Bainerman from his article:

The Vatican Agenda: How Does The Vatican View The Legitimacy of Israel’s Claims To Jerusalem?

“The institution of “The Vatican” is not understood by Israelis and Jews. The conventional wisdom you get from the spokespersons in Israeli government ministries and the conventional Israeli media is “both sides have great intentions to do good” and that’s about it. When it comes to Israel’s bi-lateral affairs, nothing much gets investigated by the Israeli media. Thus a secret deal could be done between the Vatican and the State of Israel and nobody in Israel would ever find out about it. In fact, that is exactly what happened.”

What Does The Vatican Want?

It can’t be that the Vatican is only interested in “access to their Holy Sites” in Jerusalem. They already have that as well as legal jurisdiction under Israeli law for their institutions and assets in Jerusalem… It is something else, which the Vatican wants… to have certain versions of events be played out for them to stand in front of mankind and proclaim: our Messiah has returned.” Of course, to the Jews, this Messiah will be as false as the first one was supposed to be. Don’t matter. This is the goal of the Vatican and this is what all Israelis need to worry about.

The Vatican/Roman Catholic’s version of events is this:

They know this isn’t the end of the story that the Jewish G-d had in mind, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try and engineer their own ending to the story. So what if it is fraudulent. Doesn’t matter, that is their game plan and that is what matters and that is what Israeli Jews need to be better informed about. It is important for everyone to know what The Vatican has up its sleeve because it directly relates to our existence and our future destiny as an independent nation. This, a very powerful force is scheming to get control of the Old City of Jerusalem so you better know why and how the Vatican intends to do this.

For them to convince the world that the Messiah they put on the world’s stage is going to be accepted as genuine, they need to perform this play in the Old City. The story of this production is that this “Messiah” will merge the three monotheistic religions, usher in peace and harmony in the world, and solve the Middle East conflict. The location for this “production” will be in none other than the Old City of Jerusalem.

Evangelicals today are waiting with bated breath for the Jewish Temple to be rebuilt and the animal sacrifice to be resumed.  They have no problem with this wrong sacrifice for sin taking place, but reserve the title, Abomination of Desolation for the “Left Behind” Anti Christ character moving into the Temple and proclaiming himself to be God.  Something similar to this may or may not happen.

EUsigningEntertain if you will the idea that there are powerful forces at work in this world with the motivation to take advantage of this very compelling and popular, but false view of prophecy, a juxtaposed seventieth week of Daniel.  At the time for the building of a Third Temple a figure will arise who fits the bill of the Anti-Christ of the popular pseudo prophecy.  This Anti-Christ character will follow the popular view close enough to be accepted by the adherents of this “Futurist/Left Behind view” to be misidentified as the “true Anti-Christ” while at the same time he will through popular media manipulation be accepted by the world as a Peacemaker when he makes a mid-east peace deal which includes the building of a New Jewish Temple.

To follow the script, three to four years into this Treaty the deal will begin to unravel and have to be abandoned because a conflict may arise out of opposition to the Third Temple. The deal will be broken!  Islam will not have a Third Temple so any deal with their leadership to allow it is doomed from the start.  The Vatican cannot allow it to be completed because any sacrifice other than their bloodless sacrifice of trans-substantiation is unacceptable.  Only Orthodox Jewry desire the Third Temple as true believers.  Evangelical adherents are true believers with a different motivation, which is to bring about events that will precipitate the return of Christ, however they are unwitting puppets of the counter-reformation eschatology that they hold so dear, false prophecy.

These events will most likely be accompanied by a major multilateral military conflict or threat in the mid-east and the world will cry for peace as usual.  Then will step onto the scene the True Anti-Christ bringing peace to the conflict.  Because he fulfills the false prophecy and vanquishes the first treaty breaking pseudo Anti-Christ he will be accepted as the fulfillment of the popular prophecies of the return of Christ proclaiming that he is The Vicar Of Christ, His Replacement on Earth and the true meaning and fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. He may propose the building of a Synagogue for the Jews and a Catholic Cathedral to represent Christianity to accompany Islam’s Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount to unite the Three Great Abrahamic Religions of the world as one, thus bringing peace to the region and the entire world.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Mat 24:24)

The fulfillment of this false prophecy will delude the entire world and even the Elect, if it were possible.  True Bible Believers will suddenly be the majority dissenters and will be demonized for all the ills that have plagued the world and precipitated the present crisis, eventually Social Justice will require that they be put to death for the good of the whole. This has happened before, it was called The Inquisition, and The Bible tells us that it will happen again.  Past Inquisitions have lasted extended periods of time, so the final Mark of the Beast Inquisition may even go on for decades.  How comforting the thought of relegating tribulation to a mere seven or three and a half year period which then may even be escaped by a “pre-tribulation rapture” based entirely upon a false seven year tribulation period prophecy.  However it may take this long for the Final Inquisitors to just get warmed up while the elect to learn how to live thru it if possible.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Rev 13:15-17)

The Bible tells us about the mark of the beast which will be necessary so “that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark.”  70wksChartTReceiving this mark will be the test of whether you are or are not a part of the New World Social-Economic Order. True Bible Believers will need to discern exactly who or what is this beast and what is or does this mark represent. For that we must turn to The Bible and true prophecy.  If you are a True Bible Believer you will not just dismiss the things that I am exposing here without due investigation. If Daniel’s seventieth week is truly past then every prophecy that is based on this seven year period being future is tenuous at best.  I challenge all to find that gap between the sixty-ninth and seventieth week for themselves – it is not there. This revelation changes everything prophetic. Be not deceived.

The Rapture Will Be Canceled

Well not really canceled, perhaps we’ll just have to postpone it a couple of times before it’s called off altogether!  The starting point for our little examination is a present day building of a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount, and unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you know that millions of dollars worth of preparation have already been made towards this end. When it begins you may want to lay down all of your presupposition, because I’m sure of one thing, that there will be plenty of surprises for all concerned.

However this starting point will need something bigger than money, it will need a treaty of some sort, because Jerusalem with the Old City has been declared an “International City” and that means it belongs to the Nations.  Jesus said, “…and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24) And that word ‘Gentiles’ is the same word that may be translated ‘Nations’ from the original Greek, so he could have said, “until the times of the Nations be fulfilled.”  I believe this is a reference to the same event described at the end of Daniel Chapter Two where the Mystery Babylon Image is obliterated at His Appearing.

The rebuilding of the Jewish Temple and re-institution of the Priest Temple Sacrifice System have been foretold numerous times through the Old Testament.  But, every instance of this prophecy has been followed by its fulfillment with the Rebuilt Temple after the Babylonian Captivity and the seventy years Desolation.  Does this mean there wont be another attempt to build the Jewish Temple and restore the Priest Temple Sacrifice System before the Messiah returns? It is very likely that there will be an attempt to build a Third Jewish Temple, but it may or may not be completed, because the Bible does not have one prophecy of the rebuilding of this Temple that was given after the actual Second Temple was completed as chronicled at Ezra chapter six.  This fact and the omission of specific language detailing a ‘Third’ Temple may lead us to safely conclude that such prophecies have been completely fulfilled and any attempt to build another Temple may or may not reach fruition.

When an agreement or treaty does arise which includes the building of a Temple, for many in the Christian and Evangelical World this will be the starting shot for what they believe to be a Seven Year Tribulation Period which is based upon a non-literal interpretation of the Daniels Seventy Weeks prophecy.  The text simply does not support this supposition, because it is based solely upon conjecture, taken literally the events of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks were allotted a four hundred and ninety year time period within which to be fulfilled and history shows that it has been completely fulfilled.

Jewish-Temple-Rebuilding-Nevertheless it is more than likely that a Third Temple will commence to be built to the end of restoring the Priest Temple Sacrifice System.  And when this happens all of the Rapture enthusiasts will become very excited, but their enthusiasm will be quickly tempered when they do not begin to fly away.  All of the Pre-Tribulation Rapturists will suddenly join the Mid-Tribulation Rapture camp and hunker down for another three and a half years.

The Politician who is assigned to bring this Treaty or Agreement will be identified by the adherents of the Left Behind/Seven Year Tribulation scheme of Eschatology as the Anti-Christ character commensurate with those fictional books.  They will not be disappointed in the fact that the treaty will be broken and it is unlikely that the Temple Sacrifice System will even be instituted. Whether the Sacrifice actually begins or not, just the end of the agreement will be enough to qualify as “putting an end to the sacrifice” as required by the script.

The script calls for this to happen in the middle of the Pseudo Seventieth Week and will be followed as close as possible so that when the first three and a half years pass the Rapture adherents will once again be ready to float into the air to meet Jesus and the dead in Christ! But they will be disappointed once again requiring a last grasp to the Post-Tribulation Rapture position. Of course this last three and a half years will pass in desperate anticipation by those who have now been disappointed twice. Surely this final wait will be absolutely secure in its expectation because in the minds of those indoctrinated in the Left Behind-Seven Year Tribulation Deception there is no other position to move to.

By the end of this Counterfeit Seventieth Week enough of the attributes of the Fictional Series will be accomplished to satisfy its true believers. The Puppet False Anti-Christ who makes and or breaks the treaty will be deposed or worse. This will also be the final blow to the Rapture and the death of hope for a resurrection event that precedes the grave. The New World Social-Economic Order with its main features: Social Justice, Charity in Truth, Financial and Religious Equality (Social-Commu-Facism) will be introduced to the world by a team of New World Leaders.

NewWorldPopeThese leaders, with the True Anti-Christ who will assuage their disappointment by proclaiming, ‘I Am the Vicar of Christ, the true fulfillment of the prophecy and now begins a Millennial Reign, an Evolution to a New World Social-Economic Order of Peace.’ A Jubilee will be proclaimed, National Debts will be forgiven to kick off the New Fair and Equal Monetary System. The Three Great Mono-Theistic Religions will be united in peace. It will be like heaven on earth! The requirement of forced peace, like Pax Romana will tell the tale, as the Messiah warned, “the violent take it by force.”  No one will ever be forced into the true Kingdom of God, this would violate the very principle of the Gospel of the Kingdom which requires voluntary repentance.  This is why Social-Commu-Facism is an abomination.

All of the Ecumenical Evangelical Religious leaders will affirm to their congregations, “that there has always been a debate about the Rapture,” pre-mid-post, so that we should not be disappointed because what is sure is the gospel that we have learned for the last hundred years. “Don’t you know, we get to go to heaven when we die?” And all the people will exclaim, “Oh Yea! We get to go to heaven when we die!” However this too is a subtle deception because Jesus never said, “Repent for you get to go to heaven when you die.” Rather He did warn of bad preachers who would “shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.” Mat 23:13

His Gospel was different, He said, …Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Mat 4:17) and the Bible clearly teaches that we go to the resurrection when we die only if we are already in His Kingdom for He also proclaimed , …he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Mat 24:13) Nowhere does the Bible teach that the Resurrection is preceded by a seven year tribulation period or follows Daniels seventieth week.  When you see the Temple begin to be rebuilt it will actually initiate a seven year countdown to the overt reign of the True Anti-Christ and the beginning of the New World Social-Economic Order with its companion Mark of the Beast Monetary System.  Please do not be so quick to dismiss this almost unbelievable but very carefully crafted great delusion exposed here.

ctblogoHow are we respond to these things?  We should continue to walk in the Spirit and be led by the Spirit, our Creator calls His Elect to obey to His commandments, allow His Holy Spirit to bring forth the fruit of repentance in your life, “the good works which God has before ordained that we might walk in them.” If you cannot obey Him now, how do you think He will lead you when the time is critical? Learn to trust and obey Him now and you will be able to hear and obey Him through this Global Great Depression, coming world conflicts and Mark of the Beast Inquisition.  Cross the Border into His Kingdom, obey the King and live forever, nothing is more important!

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Mat 23:13)

    Why do you even encourage to entertain the idea of the Futurist left behind view ? The Bible does not teach that there is a false Antichrist before the real Antichrist. Give me at verse in the Bible that talks about this. You might say that this is other people’s views. Why would you even talk about that stuff? Instead, be direct in speaking the truth.
    You also quote; “It is very likely that there will be an attempt to build a third Jewish temple, but it may or may not be completed because the Bible does not have one prophecy of the rebuilding of this temple, that was given after the Second Temple was completed.”
    Revelation chapter 10 John was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told by the mighty angel, go and measure the Temple of God and the altar,(GK= naos, the Holy of Holies where the ark of the covenant resides) and count the worshipers there”, John’s act of measuring signifies God’s ownership as he surveys the Temple area- but once the Temple proper.The temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt in the end times! See MT 24:15, Dan 9:27, 11:31 Here the mighty angel from Rev 10 is insructing John to litterally measure the dimensions of the rebuilt Temple Revelation 10 is a striking contrast of the rebuilt Temple. One measures when they’re ready to build something.

    • The Bible also does not teach that there will be a 7 yr tribulation before Christs return, neither does it teach that the Resurrection will follow Daniels 70th Week, neither does it teach that there is a gap between the 69th and 70th week. Neither does it teach the RAPTURES, but it does teach about the Resurrection, one event where the living and dead will be caught up TOGETHER at the last trump. Nowhere does it teach that the Resurrection will precede, divide or follow a 7 yr period. These interpretations are only arrived at by conjecture.

      You are also interpreting scripture in your second paragraph, really only opinion. But don’t feel bad, I used to totally believe in the counter-reformation view too.

  2. Heather says:

    Oh lets see, where shall I start… Rapture of the Church. First I will quote a few sentences of your own words. “all of pre-trib Rapture enthusiasm will quickly be tempered when they do not begin to fly away. All pre trib rapture is will suddenly join the mid trib rapture camp”……… The truth is, Jesus promised to keep us from the ‘seven year tribulaion

  3. Heather says:

    This article is complete heresy!! You are trying the lead people away from the truth! The Holy BIble is complete truth and you have distorted the truth!!

    • I’m sorry I have distorted your truth. Before you condemn me to hell as a heretic perhaps you could correct me according to the word of God. In other words – Show me where I’m wrong.

      • Sandy Kelsay says:

        Tribulation: Those days shall be shortened for the elects sake.Revelations 24: 21-22
        It is during the tribulation that the saved will be refusing the mark of the beast.
        Rapture: My understanding is that the Rapture will occur when Jesus returns. The dead first and then the living.

        • Sandy Kelsay says:

          In Mathew 24Jesus is talking about the end of days read on Mr Arthur. Mathew 24:29-31

        • if those days had not been shortened no flesh (Jacob) would have been saved, but for the Elect’s sake (those obedient Hebrew’s who would spread the gospel) those days of persecution were shortened to prevent the annihilation of even the elect. Many try to apply this verse to the days preceding the return of Messiah but this is not logical because the elect will all be resurrected at that time so those days will not need to be shortened for their sake. Because first century Christians were a sect of the Jews it was necessary for the Elect to survive the desolation of the Hebrew Nation at the end of that century.

  4. Drew says:

    Great article.. I too believe the Papacy is the antichrist. And I’ve never been satisfied with the 7 year tribulation interpretation from Daniel’s 70th week. I do believe we are about to enter a time of tribulation as believers.. I’m just not sure of the length of time. I take 2 Thessalonians literal so I think there will be a rebuilt temple soon. Pre-trib/Mid-trib rapture views are not biblical in my opinion. I believe the 2nd coming and rapture are the same event. It will be interesting to see this all play out. I’m still wondering what the mark and image of the beast will be? I’ve never really heard a satisfying answer yet to what they are.

    Whether or not people believe in pre,mid,post isn’t important. The fact is Jesus is returning for His bride.
    The ones who believe that the rapture will happen before the persecution of the church. Well, the persecution of the church has started years ago.
    When has God’s people escaped persecution?
    It happened at Sodem and Gamorah, Noah, or even in the time of Jesus. How can we be tride and true, if we’re not tested. How can there be a Great Falling Away, if we don’t go through persecution?
    We are to watch the signs of the times.
    In light of the Four Blood Moons, something big will happen, as it has before.
    If the moon is turned blood red and the sun is darkened, this will lead to something more prophetic.
    This year could be another year with out a summer. This will mean crops will fail. In California, with the worse drout ever. Supplying more than 2/3 of the US produce, with no assistance to help. And millions of pigs dying off, raising prices sky high. We are heading towards a global famine. This is happening all over the world.
    The earthquakes, along with many things changing this world.
    When the temple is rebuilt, and it will be. The plans are in the making. The funds are there. Even the blue prints are drawn up. With the curse that has been placed on this nation, by its own condemnation. When we’ve aloud this in this country ,as we have, we’ve put a curse on ourselves. We are living in the days of Noah, and Sodam and Gumora.
    Wormwood, could hit this year, some believe. An earthquake hit at yellow done this year. But what if the volcano there erupts? It would wipe out more than half of this country.
    All I can say, is the end is near. I think we’re knocking at the door or are inside the tribulation. We don’t know the day or the hour. But, Jesus said, be watchful. He told us this to watch for.

  7. claudiaishis says:

    The original language states that the 70 weeks of Daniel were 70 Sevens. Sevens are the God appointed 7 Holy Sabbaths and 7 Holy Feast Days that fall within a 7 month period within each Calendar year. The 70 weeks were for the latter time when the Jews were gathered into a state again. That happened in May of 1948, but the call went forth by the UN in November of 1947….and the Jewish governing body, the Knesset held its first meeting in Jerusalem on February 1949. Either of these dates can be possible starting times for the literal counting of the “Sevens”=Sacred Years. This interpretation also makes the “peace treaty” a one year peace treaty, broken midway. I am not a prophet, but one who believes that my God gave the Math in the Bible so that the non-Believers would see that HE is God when these things happen on schedule, and so that they won’t be deceived by the Beast from the Sea and the Beast from the Land (prophet) …..both which are supported by the dragon. For details of the Day Prophesies and how they possibly fall into the last part of the 70 years google macgoats Timeline Chart. The Sanctuary which is within all True Believers in Jesus Christ is already being trodden under. We are within the 2,300 days that the Sanctuary is being trodden under foot. We are in the years past the 62nd.

    I figure there is a reason that the Vatican is looking for something to come to earth with their observatory in New Mexico. What is coming will be what the false prophet points to as god.

  8. Mrs. Smith says:

    Mr. Arthur, I really liked your article and I shared it with friends.

  9. Sabbas says:

    Very interesting interpretations. However, you blow past all of the horrifically real physical parts of End of Age, namely, sky-fallings, stars raining down, literal profound movements of Heaven and Earth which are much to the detriment of inhabitants.

    I will read some of your other pieces.

    May Blessings be upon you

  10. Eliza says:

    It is incumbent upon us to rightly divide the Word of truth. The temple built by Herod during Christ’s time on this earth was not prophesied in the Scriptures, but Jesus called it His Father’s House. However, the Scriptures do clearly prophesy that there will be a temple during the reign of the Antichrist, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 and Revelation 11:1-2. I will trust God’s Holy Word above the uninspired word of man any time.

    • “Herod’s Temple” was actually the rebuilding and expansion of the Standing Second Temple. And more importantly neither of your references prophecy the building of a Temple. At 2 Thess 2:4 Paul describes the man of sin, we can easily understand how the Reformers discerned that this was the Papacy. But the Futurist wants to put this in a yet to be built future Temple because of the phrase, “sitteth in the temple of God.” Something like this may or may not happen, but what is sure is that the scripture says, “know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost” and that we are the body of Christ, a temple made without hands, living stones, and that many have vicariously put the Papacy in the place of God! And your Revelation 11:1-2 reference simply has John measuring the Temple, where is John now and where is the temple. It must be inferred by the mind of the reader that the temple reference requires an unstated rebuilding at some unstated time. If we can infer what we desire by what is unstated in any text then WE become the arbiters of what the Word of God really means. I will agree with your last statement. ” I will trust God’s Holy Word above the uninspired word of man any time.” Thank you

      • Eliza says:

        Except that Jesus when speaking about the last days twice references the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Matthew 24:15-16 & “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Mark 13:14 This can only take place in the temple as revealed in the book of Daniel: And the forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. & “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.” Daniel 11:31 and 12:11-13
        This verifies what Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. This is picked up in Revelation 11:1-2 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod, and the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. The temple is in Jerusalem, the occupation site of all of the temples. The altar is there, the daily sacrifice is there, worshipers are there along with the court. What about this makes you think there isn’t a temple in the last days?
        We know what happened to the temple after Christ ascended, it was torn down as He prophesied. There hasn’t been a temple in Jerusalem since then, and yet there are multiple references in the New Testament to the existence of the temple of God during the last days. God’s Word is clear that the Antichrist will set his image up in the temple and the false prophet will demand everyone to worship him. God commands us to be diligent students of His Word, rightly dividing it for His glory.
