Inside the mind of “Third Temple” advocates.
Jerusalem and the “third temple” received a lot of attention last year.
In April 2018, according to the Jerusalem Post, a Passover Sacrifice Ritual was carried out at the foot of the temple mount. The ceremony, which included the slaughtering of a lamb, was attended, among others, by senior national-religious rabbis.

Donald Trump was supported by Zionist Israel right from the start. By far Israel’s favorite GOP candidate, his campaign promises included recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv.
In May of 2018, Israel minted a coin featuring the image of Trump. The back side of the coin featuring the future “3rd temple”.
The celebratory coin has President Trump’s face side by side with head of King Cyrus, the biblical character allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem 2,500 years ago

According to hamikdash.org.il, the verses on the coin depict the proclamation of Cyrus, king of Persia, and the word of the Lord
“And He – HASHEM, the Lord of the World – charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem”
This declaration took place exactly 70 years after the people of Israel were sent in to exile. The prophet Jeremiah “promised that with the passing of seventy years, “I will bring you back to your place.”
The coin is said to express joy and gratitude that the American embassy will be transferred to Jerusalem in honor of Israel’s independence day, which is said to be the fulfillment of the Trump declaration recognizing the centrality of Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.
Now I’m not saying that Trump is the antichrist, although some people think he is. Personally, I hold to the historical view that the anti-christ of Revelation is MAN, not A man. But that’s another subject. But Trump and political Israel were pretty chummy and constantly in the news last year.
The act of gazing into a shiny reflective surface as a means of divining or predicting the future is called “scrying.” The term is rooted with the ancient Druids, part of an elite class of Celtic people living primarily in the British Isles and France during the Bronze Age. Pools of water, mirrors or reflective glass are also used for the practice of scrying.
On September 3rd, the nascent Sanhedrin and the Mikdash (Temple) Educational Center presented the World Creation Concert at the south-east side of the temple mount, inside the old city. The area is approached through the Ha’Ashpathot (Dung) gate which is located on the south side of the area, which is an Archaeological park today. The event fell one day before the 25th of the Hebrew month of Elul, the 5778th anniversary of the creation of the world, according to Jewish tradition.
A special coin commemorating the event, was minted by the Sanhedrin and Mikdash Educational Center and presented it to the President of Honduras.
From Breaking News Israel:
“As the focus of creation of the world, the Temple should be a House of Prayer for all nations,” Rabbi Weiss said, citing the prophecy in Isaiah.
I will bring them to My sacred mount And let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices Shall be welcome on My mizbayach; For My House shall be called A house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7″
Rabbi Weiss explained that the event was intended to be a sign of “repentance, a return to holiness and purity.” The music included sections of prayer related to the seven days of creation and their connection to the Temple, the Selichot (repentance) period, Rosh Hashana (New Year), and Yom Kippur.
“The only hope for world peace, for beating spears into pruning hooks, is if this universal justice and move towards peace comes out of the Bible and Jerusalem,” said Rabbi Hillel Weiss.
Now, the “world peace coming out of the Bible and Jerusalem” the Rabbi is speaking of, is the enstatement of the Noachide Law which the Sanhedrin intend to govern the world with. (see here how this relates to Trump ).
In a response to the UN’s Resolution that Abortions/Assisted Suicide Are Human Rights, he told Breaking Israel News (BNI), that “Any official body that adopts these laws will be brought to justice in the international court of the Sanhedrin.” He went on to say,
“The origins of the United Nations was rooted in the Biblical concept of 70 nations. In their very beginnings they related to this by establishing the State of Israel. But when they turned their back on Jerusalem, they rejected their Biblical ideals and lost their mandate. They have become a forum for political plots that oppose holiness, purity, humanity, and the Bible. ” source
According to BNI, the Sanhedrin is working with the leaders of several nations to establish a NEW international body, based, in Jerusalem, on Biblical values that will REPLACE the UN.
In early November, the emergent reorganization of the Sanhedrin issued an invitation to 70 nations (70 years after the en-statement of the counterfeit state of Israel…coincidence?), inviting representatives of each to attend the consecration of their replica of the altar upon which daily sacrifices were made on behalf of the Jewish people.
On Dec 10, 2018, the Sanhedrin Sacrificed a lamb at Hannukah, in an event that looked no bigger than a family get-together. Now, that seems strange, doesn’t it? All that press, and such a minimally attended event? One explanation, in the NATURAL, is that it took place on Islamic controlled grounds.
But, I think that, in the bigger, spiritual picture, “70 nations” very likely WERE there. Just NOT in the NATURAL. I believe they were the 70 Principalities over the world. Let me show you why I think that. In Ephesians 6:12 we read,
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
A principality is defined as:
A state ruled by a prince, usually a relatively small state or a state that falls within a larger state such as an empire. The position or authority of a prince or chief ruler; sovereignty; supreme power.
A prince rules over a principality. Daniel chapter ten shows us that fallen angels and angels from God are called princes, and that they govern certain regions of the earth:
But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. (Daniel 10:13)
As the Judeo-Christian world embraces a physical counterfeit Israel, anticipating the “rapture” before things get too chaotic, and second chance of salvation for the synagogue of satan, they’re at it again…
I believe that the SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE of these events are being overshadowed by a dispensational focus on the NATURAL/PHYSICAL.
Christian researcher, Sarah Grant recently wrote on Facebook:
“This isn’t Egypt or some other ungodly place…It’s JERUSALEM and the COUNTERFEIT Sanhedrin. They already sacrificed the lamb, to copy the Abomination of the second Temple. Now they’re gonna straight-up try a re-do of what Jesus did at Passover?? Yeah…I don’t think so homeboys.
The movies about all of the gods…like Aquaman and all of those…they’re showing that they’re being gathered. Abba is allowing them to “gang up”. But they’re going down..”
The dispensational “end times” script we’ve all been indoctrinated into makes it hard to interpret these prophetic events, but the key is to keep in mind that the book of Revelation is written symbolically and speaks of what is taking place in the SPIRITUAL realm.
- Revelation revisits (different views of) events that have taken place throughout the history of the church, with ever increasing intensity.
- Rev 12-13 The beast from the land and sea represent the political and religious, spiritually I believe we’re already there.
- Matt 24, Jesus referring to the abomination of desolation, dual fulfillment, temple destroyed and the end of the age.
- 2 Thess 2:6 The restrainer removed, likely already has been.
- Rev 13 The beast is MAN, not A man… (but I’m sure they’ll set up A physical man to play the role.)
These things are all taking place in the Spiritual realm and they are using the dispensational lens to PUSH the PHYSICAL.
The Lord is allowing this, but He will not allow them to succeed with all of it.
Judaized Christianity/Christian Zionism has twisted scripture and confused believers about the nature and timing of the third temple. We are the temple of God. Building a physical third temple is unbiblical.
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 1 Cor 3:16
“Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made by hands, as the prophet says,” Acts 7:48
How does the believer overcome in these disturbing days?
From an excellent article about Revelation 12-13 on the First Presbyterian church of Jackson Missiissippi website:
“Overcoming the Beast(s)
Revelation 12 and 13 provide for us some clear instruction on how we may overcome the influence of the beasts of the earth and sea.
1. It is possible for a believer to overcome because Christ has overcome and now reigns. We are live with this firmly in our minds and hearts. The victory of Christ is not in the future; He has already won the victory. It began in the past. Jesus Christ now reigns and that is why the beast is so furious. He knows his time is short. That is why he seeks to destroy the people of God.
2. We can overcome, so long as we develop spiritual insight (13:18). The wisdom that is called for is spiritual wisdom. We are to recognize that the source of all opposition is hellish. We are to remember that we wrestle against a power that is greater than flesh and blood (Eph. 6:18-20).
3. We are endure patiently (13:10). That is what we need if we look at the dragon or the beasts in the eye. We say to God, “You deal with it.” This is coming to me because I belong to you.
4. You can be on the victory side if you learn to be faithful to Christ. It is the cry of heaven that believers overcame him by the blood of the lamb, by their testimony, and by their refusal to shrink from death (12:11). Like Stephen, they overcome by looking to Jesus (Acts 7:56, 59). He recognized that Christ was standing at the right hand of God. He endured faithfully, knowing that it would kill him. And it is when that resolution is made, that I will stand for Christ, come hell or high water, that victory is assured. When we can make the resolve, “I am for Christ even if it kills me,” there is nothing that can destroy us.” source
