This Temple will not be the LORD’s temple, the Glory of God will not inhabit it.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJV)
Yesterday, we posted an article about the momentous announcement of a the Temple Institute located in Jerusalem, Israel, regarding the Red Heifer. As most of you know, the Temple Institute has been working tirelessly for the past 30-plus years to recreate all the items needed for the rebuilt Jewish Temple. They work they have accomplished in that time is nothing less than astounding.
Israeli Housing Minister calls for the building of the Third Jewish Temple:
The Bible in Daniel 9 (see above scripture) also talks about a Jewish Temple that will be standing during the time of Jacob’s Trouble, as found in Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV). Since there have already been 2 Jewish Temples with none left standing since 70 AD, we understand that Daniel is talking about the Third Jewish Temple. This is the same Temple that the Temple Institute has been laboring so hard to construct. The Prophet Daniel says, however, that instead of the Shekinah Glory of the God of Abraham, the Antichrist himself will sit in the Holy of Holies, thus defiling it.
What the Prophet Daniel Saw will happen in our lifetime
“Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9: 24-27 (KJV)

“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 30:7 (KJV)
In the 9th chapter of the book of Daniel, we read a prophecy about the coming end times. The New Testament calls it the Great Tribulation, the Old Testament calls it the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’, but they both are speaking of the same event. This event is a 7-year period, preceded by the Rapture, which kicks off the start of the 7 years of tribulation.
Daniel’s 70 Week was put on hold when Jesus the Messiah was put the death on the cross. That same 70th Week will be restarted immediately after the Rapture of the Church, and event that kicks of the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation from Matthew 24. Daniel was given a vision far into the future, pointing to a time when the Jewish Temple would be rebuilt. The Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, and for nearly 2,000 years now it has laid in ruins, with just parts of the Temple walls and some of the foundations remaining. Watchers of end times bible prophecy have long speculated as to whether or not the Temple would be built for a third time. But Daniel 9, verse 27, clearly sees that there is a rebuilt Temple in the end times. Our time.
This Third Temple will be taken over by the Lawless One, commonly known as the Antichrist, at exactly three and one half years after the start of the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. This Temple will not be the LORD’s temple, the Glory of God will not inhabit it.
So pray for the Jewish people who will be deceived into thinking that this Third Temple will be the Lord’s Temple, because it will in no wise be. It will be the Temple of Satan himself, as Daniel so aptly pointed out thousands of years ago.
In the New Testament, Jesus talking about the rebuilt Jewish Temple warns the Jews to “flee into the mountains” when this event of the Antichrist sitting in the Temple takes place. And who does Jesus Himself quote when He issues this warning? Why, none other than the Prophet Daniel!
“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:15-21 (KJV)
In that you have complete harmony between the Old and New Testaments about prophecy that will come to pass within our lifetimes. How scary and exciting is it to be alive in the last generation before the Rapture.
Are you ready for what comes next?
