THE THIRD & FOURTH TEMPLES!

Good morning, blog readers, from cold, but not very cold (30 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I heard an owl hooting and saw a sliver of the moon and a bunny! Thank You, Jesus!

Over the years, there have been two Jewish temples in Jerusalem. According to Wikipedia, “The First Temple was built in the 10th century BCE/BC, during the reign of Solomon. It stood until 587 BCE/BC when it was destroyed during the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem. According to the Hebrew Bible, the First Temple was likewise destroyed during the reign of Solomon over the United Kingdom of Israel. Almost a century later, the First Temple was replaced in the 10th century BCE, during the reign of Solomon over the United Kingdom of Israel. It stood until around 587 BCE, when it was destroyed during the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem. Almost a century later, the First Temple was replaced by the Second Temple which was built after the Neo-Babylonian Empire was conquered by the Achaemenid Persian Empire. While the Second Temple stood for a longer period of time than the First Temple, it was likewise destroyed during the Roman siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE.”

Even though there is no Jewish Temple in Jerusalem right now, the Word of God (the Bible) tells us that there will be a Third Temple which, I believe (and I could be wrong), will be built as a result of the seven-year “peace treaty” the so-called Antichrist makes with the Jews (Daniel 9:27).Then, I also believe, based on the same verse, the Antichrist will go into the temple, stop the temple sacrifices and declare to the world he alone is God (II Thessalonians 2:3, 4) and to be worshiped, with the death penalty for all those who resist him (Revelation 13). Then, the Lord Jesus will come, defeat the Antichrist and his army and set up His kingdom on earth for 1,000 years (Ezekiel 40-48; Revelation 20:1-7).

Yes, dearly beloved in Christ, He is coming! And yet, before He comes, I believe (and I could be wrong) we will see some things we have never seen before which may even destroy or weaken America. As Jesus said, we need to “stay on the alert” (Mark 13:33, 35, 37) while watching, waiting, working, witnessing for, walking with and worshiping Jesus until He comes. And, as scary as it might get before Jesus comes, we are to remember what He said to His disciples, then and now: “Do not be afraid” (Matthew 28:10) and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age.”

And, if you are still not a believer in Jesus, time is running out! So please, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) Who died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). Blessings and prayers, Doug (11/21/22)

  1. We are definitely living in chaotic times of change. I believe there will be a huge harvest of souls coming into the kingdom of God. Thankfully, all believers in Jesus are mobile temples of God. It is so important to be in the Word of God, pray, listen and obey what God tells us. No better place to be than in the presence of Almighty God. Then in hard times, we are protected, Psalm 91.
