“The Momentum to Build the Third Temple is Growing”
by Art Sadlier   
August 1st, 2009

The Bible tells us about four Temples in Jerusalem. Solomon built the first Temple which was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar. Nehemiah built the second Temple and Herod beautified it, it was destroyed by the Roman's in 70 AD. The scripture tells us about a third Temple, the Tribulation Temple. There will also be a fourth Temple, the Millennial Temple.

For several decades now a group called the Temple Mount Faithful have been preparing for the rebuilding of the Temple. All of the instruments for the Temple service have been fashioned according to the biblical pattern. The Menorah, the table for the show bread, the training of the priests and the High Priests garment along with the breastplate and the golden crown are prepared and in readiness. The Sanhedrin has been appointed and meets regularly to supervise the religious activity of the nation.  A plan for the construction of the Temple has been prepared and the blueprints are being readied. Authorization has been given to begin to construct the Temple in portable sections, ready to be assembled when approval is given.

This week construction began on the sacrificial altar. The altar will be 3 meters wide, 3 meters long and 2 meters tall. The plans are to bring the altar to the Temple Mount when the Temple is rebuilt.

In recent days there has been an acceleration of expectancy and activity over the rebuilding of the Temple. For the first time the people of Israel are calling for the Temple to be rebuilt, this is great change in the mood of the Israeli people.  In a recent survey two thirds of the Jewish people are calling for the Temple to be built. Even the secular Jews are in favour.

In response to the survey results, Rabbi Danny Tropper said, "We are a nation with a remarkable historic affinity. The Temple was destroyed 1,942 years ago, and almost two thirds of the population want to see it rebuilt, including 47% of seculars."

The whole nation has reacted to Obama`s demand that the Jews stop building in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. There has also been a reaction against the idea that America is willing to allow Iran to obtain nuclear bombs, while selling out Israeli interests for the approval of the Muslim world. There is now taking place a coming together of Israelis such has not been seen in modern times. It seems to me that the whole end time scenario has been ratcheted up considerably in this last week.

One demonstration of this growing Zeal by Israelis is the announcement that a first-of-its-kind all night Holy Temple Festival will be held on Saturday night in the Jewish town of Tapuach in Samaria.

Another display of Jewish zeal is that the nationalist activists in Judea and Samaria have set about to establish 11 new outpost settlements in the Negev desert. Daphna Ronen, a member of the Land of Israel Faithful said, "We are sending a strong message to the people of Israel and the people of the world that we love the land and we are here to stay."

In yet another display of Jewish zeal thousands of Jews rallied to protest Obama’s demands that Israel cease building in East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. They said that they could build homes in any city in the world, what authority has Obama to deny us this right in our own land?

In a current article in Israeli news, Hillel Fendel thoroughly documents that it is Jewish roots and not Arab roots that are established in Judea and Samaria. The documentation shows that up until 60 years ago it was Israelis and not the Palestinians who dwelt in these areas.

Jewish hopes for the rebuilding of the Temple are beginning to run at a fever pitch. Israel now dreams of two things, Peace and the Temple. The sad truth is that Israel will be involved in building a Temple for antichrist. The stage is being set for the Roman prince to come along and deceive Israel. Satan wants a temple so that he and his man can be worshipped as God in the very place where God has been worshipped in the past. Antichrist will offer Israel a false peace and a temple that he will usurp at the mid-tribulation point (2 Thess. 2:4).

The whole scenario in Israel screams out that antichrist is about to appear on the scene. But before that happens, Jesus is coming; the trumpet is soon to sound; are you ready
