Animal sacrifices will resume with the construction of the Third Temple, whether God wants them or not.
---StrongAxe on 11/21/10|
the future temple is dealt with in at least 9 chapters at the end of Ezekiel..what is a bit harder to understand is the timing of this future event in relation to the millenium,but all the clues are there,so pray and study about it.
---richard on 11/18/10|
do you imply that God affirms the expectation that Jews ought to obey and abide by the law, just as He did at the time of Moses?
---hop on 8/31/10|
Again, you miss the point. Israel or Jews or Hebrews or anything else, the Law was written to them - NOT to us Christians. We are NOT bound by the Law. ---StrongAxe on 8/27/10
I understand your point...and it is as you've written.
I pointed you harrass Francis for looking for connection.
He is finding context. And if he has these laws written in his heart he will discover it.
These Heb8:10 supercede the former. And will guide him and maybe you.
Looking at it from one dimension...yours...you throw stumbling blocks.
While we don't "depend on law to save us" we apply to for guidance.

Jesus says in gospels, the abomination will desecrate holy place. Paul too in 2 Thess 2. Daniel says after desecration temple will be reconsecrated. only if literal we can make sense of these. if meaning is spiritual then we're gona have big trouble figuring too many portions of scripture (prophetic promises of restoration, apoclyptic -Daniel/revelation, even eschatological passages in gospels/epistles). One more point: there is no desecration of something unholy. hence the temple to come will be holy (i.e. with God's approval). Only later it will be desecrated. Paul talks about a return of Jews to God after the full Gentile number comes in. Jews coming in will bear greater blessings to the world. STRONGAXE,YOUR ANSWER IS PERFECTLY LOGICAL.
---hop on 8/27/10|
Regardless of which number you choose to call the temple, these facts remain:
1) Daniel 9:27
"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."
2) Jews sacrifice in the temple
3) There is no temple now.
4) The Beast has not yet come
So, before 1) can be fulfilled, animal sacrifices will have to resume - and before THAT happens, a temple will have to be constructed.
---StrongAxe on 8/27/10|
The point is now that the true light has come we too no more need to remain in the shadows. as written in revelation, just as Jesus overcame and sat on the Father's throne, Jesus is willing to have every son of David have that chance.
---hop on 8/26/10|
aka, when you say 'returning to shadows' may be it refers only ritual laws. If moral laws were meaningful for all times as were social, criminal laws etc, why must ceremonial laws surrounding an imminent temple alone be rejected? In fact there has never been a time when these were done meaninfully. Just like communion is given with a meaning can't ritual laws reflect a fuller meaning in Christ? By the way if all the promises of a future restoration are only spiritual & not literal, it appears incomplete. It could me more than physical but probably not less. Even Jesus' disciples ask in beginning of Acts, when will the kingdom be restored. Being in a temple or following rituals don't replace Christ but they point to him.
---hop on 8/27/10|
Yes to both questions. The third temple which is coming will be the temple that the Antichrist seats himself in in order to show himself that he is God. There's also going to be a fourth temple and have temple of course will be built by the master himself the Lord Jesus Christ.
---mima on 8/26/10|
\\There was the 1st temple of Moses,\\
This was a portable tent, NOT a temple fixed in one place with walls, foundations, roof, etc.
---Cluny on 8/26/10|
No, becauce the third temple was already built by Ezra and the Jewish people before Jesus was born. There was the 1st temple of Moses, 2nd temple of Soloman and the 3rd temple of Ezra in the time of Cyrus King of Persia. There is no prophecy about a fourth temple in the bible.
---Grantham on 8/25/10|
are you saying that we...
-had "a shadow of things to come",
-have the True Light that casts the shadow,
-just to return to the shadow of things went by?
---aka on 8/25/10|
Yes. a third temple will be built. an instrument chosen by God, figured in Cyrus of Isaiah (with God's blessings not curse as antichrist) will build it. None will be able to oppose him. This temple will show the whole world the true purpose behind God's intentions for mosaic law. Moral, ritual, criminal (all) laws will be kept. Ritual laws will point to their meanings in Christ. This temple will fulfill God's promises through earlier prophets about restoration. Thus this will be a sacred place. However "the abomination of desolation" will attempt to desecrate this place symbolic of God's prominence. But the antichrist will be bound by God's anointed only to be decimated finally.
---hop on 8/25/10|
the one claimed to be GOD and have the Authority of GOD was only JESUS? yes the real Mesiah will reject even the slightest thought to claim his perfection. the prophcey says that sacrifice will be done again! Read Isa 53:7 Jer 33:17-18 Zec 14:21 Eze 43:22-25. About the sacrifice did you no that this is the least of all the ways of getting forgiveness of your sin? 1st animal sacrifice was the least(lev 4:1-2)and it was done for unintentional sin!2nd [Charity] Read proverbs 10:2 prov 11:4 prov 16:6 and one that fits the subject the best is PROVERBS 21:3. 3rd Repentance (from you us) 2 Sam 12:13 David was told? and King David Said in Psalms 51:16-19. read it plz. Have you ever read Zec 8:23?
---ZADOK on 11/8/08|
Duane_Dudley: I'm not sure if you were refering to my post when you said something about being Biblical sound. If so, my reply is that yes, I know and agree wiht what you said, I just didn't take the time to add that to my post.
Yes, these unbelieving Jews will be looking for the worng messiah and will be deceived and follow the AC.
They are also trying to breed a pure Red Heifer and so far have not succeeded.
---Chipper on 10/29/08|
The Jewish people are not the problem, it is the Luciferians, some in Jewish disguise, some in Muslim disguise and many powerful ones in Christian disguise. Animal sacrifice is not the problem. Human sacrifice is the problem and it is going on ALL THE TIME. Please think about this carefully. Think about 911 as a massive human sacrifice (small compared to others that are going on.)
---frances008 on 3/14/08|
Luciferians love to make everything into their Trojan Horse.
---frances008 on 3/14/08|
The Jews will start the Daily sacrifice Again.
Remember most jews Still reject the Gospel of Jesus & they are waiting for the Messiah.
Many will believe the AC is Him.
They have already remade all the Instruments of Gold that is needed for this.
The Beast will stop the Daily sacrifice & put his Image in the Temple.
At least make your replies Biblcally Sound...
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 3/13/08|
Jane: There is no temple in Jerusalem at this time, but, it will be rebuilt so the antichrist can sit there ...
2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
---Chipper on 3/12/08|
How can a third temple be built when the bible dont even say that..what it means is we are the temple of the holy spirit..we need to recleanse/rebuild ourselves everyday to come closer to the Lord .. if animal sacrifices, then Christ's death was worthless and in vain..how silly this quiestion is..
---jana on 1/6/08|
The 2nd temple was destroyed in 70 AD by the Romans. The Jewish religion became a good-works religion run by rabbinical oral torah. Some Jewish sects swing chickens at Yom Kippur for their yearly sin atonement for blood offering- Leviticus. Yes, it will be rebuilt there. This is where the Torahless One will desecrate it and decieve many. However, We Christians are God's Temple and Jesus's Blood is our atonement forever and He is our King-High Priest-read book of Hebrews. Let Him light your Menorah today!
---yochanon on 12/30/07|
Duke: Maybe not in your lifetime!
You need to read 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
This could also have a two-fold meaning in that we are the temple of the Lord but if we do not follow Christ, then maybe the enemy will be sitting in this temple.
---Chipper on 12/28/07|
No third temple will be built.
---duke on 12/15/07|
there will never be peace on earth .. Ishmael and his descendants refused to accept God and His commands so there will never be any peace on earth..till Christ return. there willnever be anymore temple rebuilt..as Jana says, we are this temple that need a daily recleansing and prepared for the coming bride..you dont wanna be caught unprepared like the brides with no oil in their lamps....
---pam on 12/8/07|
Jana-When the Lord saved me,he cleansed me with his Blood from ALL unrighteousness.I agree though the outward man perish,the inward is renewed daily,not to cleansing but to relationship with God.We begin as babes in Christ and should grow in the Lord.Godly sorrow worketh repentance unto salvation that need not be repented of.What God did when he saved me was sufficient and sealed it by his spirit.(Future Jewish temple in the days of Antichrist(Dan.9:27,11:45,12:7,Math.24:15,2Thes.2:3-4,Rev.11:1-2)
---Tommy on 12/3/07|
IMO, since there are 3 groups that have interest in the temple mount and cannot agree on who is to be in charge, it would make good logic that there would come a person on the scene who will, supposedly, have an answer for peace for these 3 and any others. He will have a temple built on the mount so that all religions can worship as one... and come to agreement. This will be the answer to peace in the Middle East as well as the rest of the world. It will be the antichrist.
---Chipper on 12/3/07|
IMO, It is very difficult to explain this in 75 words or less on a blog like this.
Read Pauls words in II Thess. and in Daniel. The antichrist will will come before Jesus. He will set himself in the temple "in place of" which is the deffinition of "anti" christ.
---Chipper on 12/3/07|
Please, prayfully go back to your Bible and meditate on 1 Peter 2:4-8. Does this sound like a physical temple building to you?? Ask God for wisdom, & He will reply and show you what He meant to say.
---Sam on 12/3/07|
Tommy: When does scripture call for symbolic explaination?..As far as I know, the bible did not limit us to such..we all know there is no way Jews can rebuild the temple again..the muslim mosque is ontop of old temple site n by uprooting it, is causing trouble..the bible didnt say it is to be rebuilt again..it refers to us..we all need a daily cleansing 4 it is our temple the bible was talking about..the temple of God's Holy Spirit. We must be renewed everyday..
---jana on 12/3/07|
Chipper, re-read my post, twisting my facts/scriptures used won't change their truth's! *Your scripture II Thess.2:8, omitted clarifying vv 1-7.
Also, of note is that The Tribulation Period was explained to The Lord's Jewish disciples, who would/should understand what He meant about fleeing anti-Christ on the sabbath day, winter, women with children etc. Simple words of The Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
Different strokes/answers for different folks/people, faith's are used by some. Spin on.
---Bob_[Elishama]_6749 on 11/29/07|
Areil, Messiah/Christ won't be in The Temple during The Tribulation Period. His appearance will herald the END Of This period, ushering in The 1,000 year Period Jews & Believers are waiting for.
I retract my 100% agreement with your post.
Chipper, I understand your response better now.
The 'selective criticism' I mentioned refer's basically to malicious responses by individuals I call Trojan Horses I've previously encountered.
---Bob_[Elishama]_6749 on 11/29/07|
How is Jesus going to destroy this antichrist with the brightness of His coming if He is coming before the antichrist takes his place on the throne posing as God himself? Not gonna happen friend. The antichrist will be on the scene first, and deceive the Jews into beleiving he is God.
II Thess 2:8+
---Chipper on 11/29/07|
Jana--If the first two Temples were physical,why would the third not be? If you will read the scriptures,I believe it gives clear evidence that the third temple will in fact be physical as well. Why is it many wish to symbolize and spiritualize scripture where the is not cause?When it calls for literal interpretation,interpret literal, and symbolic when it calls for it.
---Tommy on 11/29/07|
Areil is scripturely correct & I agree with him 100% on his post. The *anti-Christ [man of sin] will sit on the throne in The Holy Of Holies in the "Tribulation" Temple built on it's proper site during "Jacob's Trouble"/Tribulation Period, VERY BRIEFLY [Mk.13:14, The 'Rapture' occurs PRIOR to these events].
Additionally, more than Jew's will trust *him in order for the Jewish Temple sacrifices etc to resume in a volatile atmosphere, including animal right's group's, etc.
---Bob_[Elishama]_6749 on 11/29/07|
there wont be any third temple..WE ARE THE THIRD TEMPLE that need cleansing daily to make our bodies a clean sanctuary for God's Holy Spirit..
---jana on 11/28/07|
From what I read in scripture it will be the antichrist who sits in the temple masquerading as the Messiah... and the "Jews" will believe that he really is the Messiah. Read about it in II Thessalonians ch 2 and especially verse 4.
---Chipper on 11/23/07|
It is sad to hear a comment that the Holy Temple was some sort of slaugter-house. Seems unfortanate that the writer seems not to have read that G-d commanded these things to be done, not man's idea. The Third Temple will require the Levittes to perform G-d's service as Y'Shua reins within on His Throne. G-d's Temple will require us Jews present as He gave the instructions to only the Levittes. PS, I am Jewish and do trust in Y'Shua
---Ariel on 11/19/07|
As I undertand it, there are presently three(3) groups interested in the temple mount. The Jews, Christians and Muslims.
After the third temple is built the antichrist comes and he will make a treaty with these so they can appear to live in peace and harmony for 3 1/2 yrs. Then this treaty will be broken in the middle of the tribulation. After this, the wrath of God will be poured out. Then at the end of the tribulation, Jesus will come and destroy antichrist with His brightness.
---Chipper on 11/17/07|
A Third Temple (not counting the attempt to rebuild it in the time of Julian the Apostate) will be the Temple of Antichrist.
Let's also remember that the Temple was a glorified slaughterhouse. (What do you think went on there, anyway? Cantatas and revivals?)
There is an outfit in Jerusalem called the Temple Institute which has its own website.
---Jack on 11/16/07|
Does no-one research history on here. 1286, during the crusades, muslims were driven from Jerusalem by the christian knights. They then mocked the mosque of the rock and turned it into a church and put a huge cross on the dome. That infuriated the muslims. That is the spot where Mahammod rose to heaven in their ideology. Muslims then destroyed Jacobs Ford and retook Jerusalem. Because of one arrogant moment in the life of christians, muslims vow peace will never happen. Stop dreaming and read the facts.
---Ashley on 3/27/07|
Thats awfully hard to imagine considering the muslims mosque is sitting on that same sight.
---Ramona on 3/27/07|
That is where the temple will be build and they will start blood sacrifices

Mima - I just read your post which started with "hell" and I think that you meant Helen --- that's me!! LOL ... you just gave me a good laugh. After I got saved someone spelled my name "Hellen" and I told them there was no more hell in me. Yours ..... LOL .... well .... LOL Bless you brother.
---Helen_5378 on 8/16/06|
I'm trying to recall scripture that indicates that Jerusalem may be jointly held by the Jews and someone else (my guess is the Muslims)or will be a divided city. I can't remember well enough to find the scripture. If global governance comes into being (as it will under the Anti-Christ) such a "compromise", enforced by central global authority, might produce the temporary "peace" of the early tribulation period. Does anyone know the scripture I have in mind?
---Donna2277 on 8/16/06|
Hell in your scenario about the Moslems and the RCC joining together and in fact turning the dome of the rock into an acceptable worship place for people other than the Moslems is very interesting. This idea rakes anew the leafs of my mind.
---mima on 8/14/06|
When we make statements with such gravity as where the Antichrist will come from the best we can really come up with is the fact that we know he is coming. Most anything else is pure speculation.
---Elder on 8/13/06|
There is no proof Scripturally or otherwise that he will come from the RCC.
The majority of the RCC believe Jesus is God, The Virgin Birth of Jesus and that Jesus is the sacrifice for sin. They are wrong about how to get to heaven and some other issues. Many RCCs are saved.
There are many other cults that are worse than the RCC that the Antichrist could come from. He may very well come on his own merits not associated with any other.
We cannot prove any group from Scripture.
---Elder on 8/13/06|
Jack - I believe that you are wrong. I am certain that the Pope has never confessed that Jesus is Lord. Come on --- the pope is lord over all in the RCC.
---Helen_5378 on 8/13/06|
Helen says: **and/or the Antichrist will come from the Catholic Church.**
The Bible says that Antichrist will not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. The RCC lays great stress upon the Incarnation, therefore, according to the Bible does NOT qualify for being Antichrist.
---Jack on 8/13/06|
Maybe the Dome of the Rock will be turned into the temple by the Antichrist. Especially if the Muslims and RCC join forces, as the false prophet and/or the Antichrist will come from the Catholic Church.
---Helen_5378 on 8/12/06|
"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 that be in Judea flee...". Some believe this to refer to the Ant-Christ. Mat.24:15-16.Passages in Daniel (9:27;12:11) speak of interruption of sacrifices in connection with the coming of Messiah. There is room on the temple Mount for a new temple, but not on precisely the original site, because a Muslim mosque sits there now.
---Donna2277 on 8/12/06|
notlaw99, your observance is keen.
The Dome of the Rock can be removed by one simple missile or bomb from an aircraft.
The Dome of the Rock is believed to be built over the rock that Abraham was willing to offer his son on.
Watch for coming events on this matter.
---Elder on 8/12/06|
There is a little matter of the Dome of the Rock being in the way.

Yes there will be a temple build and they will be blood scafies they already have every
