3rd Temple Watch: December 2016

The first Jewish temple was built by Solomon in 957 BC and destroyed by the Babylonians on the 9th Day of the Month of Av, 586 BC.  The second Temple was built in 515 BC by Ezra and co, refurbished by Herod the great (for 46 years, John 2:20) and was eventually destroyed on the same date of 9th of Av, 70 AD by Titus.  According to the Scriptures, the third Temple will be up and functioning by the time of the antichrist (Daniel 9:27, 11:31; Mathew 24:15.) The antichrist and his ungodly principles are however currently being restrained by the Salt and Light of the world that is still in place - the Church.  The departure of the Church (Rapture) will set in motion again the dispensation of Judaism, which will be rapidly brought to a closure in seven years (the last of the 70 weeks in Daniel 9:27).  Therefore, ongoing accelerating efforts to put the Jewish Temple in place, is a good and major indicator of where we are on the prophetic calendar.  As Christians, we don’t expect to be around to actually see the Temple commissioned, but while we are on this side of Rapture, publishing this newsletter, we will bring feature regular updates on progress towards putting in place the Third Temple.

Third Temple on the Way as Priests Prepare Ritual Shabbat Showbreads
BREAKINGNEWS ISRAEL REPORTS: “Last Saturday [Dec 17], a Shabbat reenactment of a Temple ritual took place in the holy city of Hebron, giving participants a taste of the Temple service as it was in Biblical times while taking a practical step towards preparing for the Third Temple.  Yaakov Hayman, the head of Yishai, an NGO dedicated to reinstating Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, is preparing to submit a survey map to the Israeli government to build four synagogues, one in each corner of the Temple Mount compound, a critical turning point steering Israel in the right direction towards prayer at Judaism’s holiest site.
