The Coming 3rd Temple – Location?
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
On the evening of the 18th – 19th September the Feast of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets and NEW Biblical Year 5781 (2020-2021) begins on Tishrei 1; The Year of the "PEH / ALEPH." When we crossed over from 2019 to 2020 (5780) - a NEW decade of "PEY" or "Peh" which represents "mouth" and new threshold called; "the fullness of time" was birthed and began to take shape… "But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son." – Galatians 4:4. On the evening of the 18th – 19th September, 2020 is Rosh Hashanah the first day of the NEW Biblical Year 5781 which is "Aleph" = 1. Number One is always connected to Yahweh God and "New Beginnings" and so we have the "Pey / Aleph" Year beginning the first year of the New Decade. Then on the evening of 27th – 28th September is "Yom Kippur" / "Day of Atonement." Four days later on the evening of the 2nd – 9th October is "Sukkot" / "Tabernacles" which ends the following evening of the 10th October with the "Eighth Day / Last Day (of the Feast) or "Rejoicing in the Torah!"
What lies ahead in the decade of "Peh" or "Pey" (5780) which means "mouth, speech, and breath …and first year beginning with "Aleph" (5781)? Firstly, it is very interesting that way back to the October 2019 when the Biblical Year 5780 (2020) began with the DECADE of the "mouth, speech and breath and the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) was already beginning to spread in Wuhan China. What did it do?
It affected everything to do with the “mouth and breathing” into the lungs! It became compulsory for everyone to wear a mask over their “mouths” and literally limited “speech.” You see NOTHING is just coincidence with Almighty God! Also, the first two numbers 57 of 5780 was connected is connected to eyes “ayin” – “to see something or experience something” …and remember we were all told to NOT touch our eyes to prevent getting infected and would spread the virus? Across the world ALL were shut in our homes in a prison term called “LOCKDOWN” as Churches closed and free “speech” stifled by radicalised Democrat Liberals, Socialists and Communists. The corrupt Media became a “voice” for evil lying Liberals and great deception began to set in to silence truth and the Word of God – the Bible.
The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is “Aleph.” It represents “Oneness” of our God Yahweh - the Creator, a profound “mystery of unity and harmony.” Aleph has a numerical value of one (1). It is the first prime number, which signifies “a beginning.” The “Aleph is one of two consonants in the Hebrew language that cannot be pronounced as it is always silent, indicating the qualities of “being hidden, incomprehensible, unexplainable” as well as “infinite.” In the Hebrew language, the word Aleph pictures “OX” or "head of a bull" or the head of royalty (king). In Exodus 32, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the carved stone tables of the Ten Commandments, he saw that the children of Israel had made a golden “calf.” They wanted to symbolize God with the steer head. By covering their idol with gold, they tried to legitimize their fraudulent religious expressions. Humanity often borrows ideas from the Creator God in order to give our enterprises an image of legitimacy. Ezekiel saw four creatures before the throne of God in a vision. One creature had a “steer head,” representing the physical world coming from a world of light. An “Ox” carries burdens and time for ALL God’s people and Church to …put their hands to the “plough!” Like the golden “calf” there is coming great “falling away” in the Church and Word of God! It’s going to take literally “spiritual warfare” prayers and staying focused and confess the Word of God! 2021 is going to be like the “Aleph” which symbolizes NEW “beginning of everything” in the universe. All had its origin within and from God and represents two very important Hebrew letters for 21; “Shin” and “Resh!” “Shin” (300) represents the Name of God and like God used Gideon in the Bible “a remnant” to do the impossible we must stay and “Resh” which represents a “head of a man”- “leader” or “chief!” And, the total of 5781 is the Hebrew Word “Selah” meaning; “think on this - you will be amazed!” Just a thought - could God be amazing the world with another miraculous re-election of US President Donald Trump? That would be amazing! More about the Biblical Year 5781 (2020-2021) in October’s teaching – we know that you will be blessed!
Have you thought about Jerusalem and the part this City of God plays in the final End-Time Days? The Hebrew prophets all proclaimed that in the Last Days, the exiles of Israel would return to the Promised Land and that the 3rd Temple would be rebuilt; “Then the nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever” - Ezekiel 37:28. There are phenomenal End-Time events are unfolding before our very eyes! While all this is happening, Satan is distracting the world with unheard of lawlessness, hatred and lack of concern for each other lives or properties while godless leaders are focusing on power and control! One of the signs of the End of the Age is that of the coming 3rd Temple in Jerusalem! “…here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are SIGNS and SYMBOLS in Israel from the Lord Almighty, who dwells on Mount Zion!” – Isaiah 8:18. For centuries, the Jewish People have streamed to the Western Wall, which came to be known as the “Wailing Wall,” to lament the destruction of the 1st Temple destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC and 2nd Temple destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD …and to pray for the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple, to receive priestly blessings, and to repent.
Why Build the Third Temple? “I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them.” - Amos 9:14–15. Not only are the Jewish exiles of Israel returning to the Promised Land (Isaiah 41:9; 43:5-6), but preparations to build the Third Temple are progressing through the efforts of the Temple Institute and the Temple Mount Faithful Movement but Rabbis of the Sanhedrin Court in Jerusalem are calling for the mayor to include in their plans for this city the rebuilding of the Third Temple. This is as close to Biblical Prophecy that it’s getting and for true believers – Body of Christ it’s like saying; ‘Wow, the Messiah is coming!” And, there’s NO doubt about it. Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth, the Saviour of the world, is going to return and we are living in Last Days. NOBODY can stop what God has put into motion!” Yes, the 3rd Holy Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem the Last seven years of the world’s existence …and so this is an important sign to watch for as it will signal – the beginning of the END! However, as believers if we think chaos and lawlessness is happening now it will become far worse for those left behind when the Church is Raptured!
You might ask yourself, “If the sanctuary was ‘a copy and a shadow of what is in Heaven’ (Hebrews 8:5), and Yeshua (Jesus) ‘serves in the sanctuary - the true tabernacle set up by the Lord’ (Hebrews 8:2) …why contemplate building the 3rd Temple?” You see for Orthodox Jews; the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was NEVER just simply a building or structure …but rather an earthly dwelling place for the “Divine Presence of God.” The Lord said; “Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell (shakan) among them.” (Exodus 25:8; 40:34–35; 1 Kings 8:11). This dwelling (Hebrew word is ‘shakan’) and forms the related word; “Shekinah,” used in Rabbinic literature and Bible translations to describe the Lord’s; “Divine Presence.” The Prophet Ezekiel witnessed the departure of this “Divine Presence” from the Temple (Ezekiel 10:18–19). BUT he also saw the re-building of an Eternal and permanent dwelling place of God in Jerusalem; “The glory of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east. I heard someone speaking to me from inside the temple. He said: ‘Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place for the soles of my feet. This is where I will live among the Israelites forever.’” - Ezekiel 43:4–7.
The Bible confirms a Third Temple built in Jerusalem… From Matthew 24:3 throughout the rest of the chapter, Yeshua (Jesus) sat on the Mount of Olives overlooking the Second Temple, while He prophesied of events that would occur near the time of His Second Coming. The building of the ‘Third Temple’ is going to be built even though the Bible warns that the Beast or Antichrist will desecrate it before the Second Coming of Christ and the Millennium. Already many 3rd Temple vessels and artefacts are being prepared for the blood sacrifices of the animals that will occur in that Temple (Jeremiah 33:1-26). The Bible also teaches of the 3rd Temple returning to Israel and that the Antichrist will make a covenant and put a stop to sacrifices half way through the Tribulation (1 week is 7 years and midpoint 3 ½ Years. (Daniel 9:27) In Amos 9:11 we read; “In that day I will restore David’s fallen shelter - I will repair its broken walls and restore its ruins and will rebuild it as it used to be.” And Isaiah 2:2-3 reads; “In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, ’Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” The Apostle Paul mentions it when he declares that the “man of lawlessness” will profane the Temple by entering it and declaring himself to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). The Third Temple is also mentioned in the book of Revelation when John is told to measure it – a symbolic way of telling him to assess its spiritual condition (Revelation 11:1-2).
However, NO one knows the time or date of the Lord’s return or the coming Apocalypse but the Bible gives us the indications and signs so that we can prepare... The Book of Revelation outlines the events that will unfold at the End Times. For countless millions throughout the ages Jerusalem has been the “navel” of the earth and so much history has happened here within these Ancient walls. Each day over the years the streets of the Old City would be packed with tourists from across the world. Sadly, tourism came to an abrupt standstill in March of 2020 when the Covid-19 deliberately spread by Communist China brought everything to a standstill. Within this Ancient City, once stood the TWO Temples making it a “spiritual” longing of all Orthodox Jews. From the “Dome of the Rock” Muslims believe that their prophet Muhammad descended in a dream up to heaven on a celestial horse making Jerusalem the third most important place in their Islamic Religion. The events in the life of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua (Jesus) happened in Jerusalem …and are hallowed ground for all Christians as the birthplace of Christianity. It is here where our Lord was Crucified and ascended into Heaven. When you consider how important Jerusalem is to Jews, Christians and Muslims for thousands of years. And visitors are so surprised to see how small the Old City really is! In fact, Mark Twain who came through these gates of the Old City in 1869 said that you could walk around the entire City in just one hour!
The walls that we now see surrounding the Old city are in fact only about 500 years old re-built by Suleiman of the Ottoman Turks. During its long history Jerusalem has been destroyed twice and captured 44 times. The walls, gates and City has been re-built many times and at various times in history. There are 7 entrance gates in the Old City and 1 gate which was closed Suleiman in 1541 AD hoping to prevent the Messiah from returning - making it the 8th Gate. This gate is called the “Golden Gate” or “Gate of Mercy.” According to Jewish prophecy this is the gate where the “Messiah” will enter. And according to the New Testament Christians believe the same and that it will be opened by our Lord Himself at His Second Coming.
The area by the “Golden Gate” (8th gate) is known as the “Ophel” which in Hebrew means a “fortified hill” or a “risen area” …and immediately to the south is another hill where the “City of Jabus” stood before King David besieged and captured the city in 1003 BC which was then renamed – Jerusalem! King David brought the sacred “Ark of the Covenant’ and established Jerusalem and the centre of Judaism. David longed to build a “House for God” where he could place the Ark and so he bought a farmer “threshing floor” on Mount Moriah (2 Samuel 24; 1 Chronicles 21) for 50 silver Shekels from a Jebusite named Araunah or Ornan. But God told King David he would NOT be the one to build the new Temple and so the task was given to his son King Solomon. Solomon’s beautiful 1st Temple stood for nearly 400 years until it was plundered and burnt by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC. Scripture makes perfect sense; “As Yeshua (Jesus) was leaving the Temple, one of his disciples said to Him, ‘Teacher look at the magnificent stones and buildings!’ “Do you see all these great buildings?’ Jesus replied. ‘Not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be toppled!’” – Mark 13:2 (and Matthew 24:2)
In approximately 700 BC about 100 years before King Cyrus was born the Prophet Isaiah prophesied that a king named Cyrus would allow the Temple to be rebuilt (Isaiah 44:28). Isaiah’s prophesy was fulfilled in 536 BC when the Persian (today Iran) King Cyrus allowed the Jews in captivity to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem under the leadership of Nehemiah. And after the walls were rebuilt a 2nd Jewish Temple was built on the foundations of Solomon’s Temple by Zerubbabel. A full 500 years passed before Herod the Great ordered a massive reconstruction and beatification of the Temple. In 69 AD Titus the Roman Emperor marched on Jerusalem to suppress the Jewish rebellion and in 70 AD Titus torched the entire City and the 2nd Temple went up in flames.
Since then for 2,000 years there has been NO Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. However, thousands of Jews still pray at the remnants of the Western Wall widely believed to have been once a part of the two Temples. Here the Jewish people come daily to mourn the destruction of their Temples and contemplate and bring before Yahweh – God, the many hardships they have had to endure throughout the thousands of years of their history. NO trees can be planted in the courtyard of the Temple Mount as long as the Temple remains un-built! Since the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD the Jews NEVER rebuilt a 3rd Temple during all those years. WHY? After 70 AD the Jews were scattered all over the world and there came a time when the Jews were NOT even allowed to visit or live in Jerusalem! They have always wanted to rebuild the Temple! Today through the Temple Mount Institute they are finally ready as all the Biblical items such as priests’ robes, sacrificial altar required for the priests to wear in Temple has been constructed…and all that stands in their way is the final piece of ground where the 3rd Temple will stand. The number one reason for building this 3rd Temple is that the Jewish people believe that their Messiah will NOT return until this Temple is rebuilt!
So, what’s the problem? What can stop them from the 3rd Temple being rebuilt? The problem simply is the Dome of the Rock which was the first Islamic ever built by the Umayyad Arab Caliph built in 691 AD by Abd al-Malik. The Temple Mount is known to Muslims as the Haram Al-Sharif which has a silver dome and is where the Al-Aksa Mosque is situated and the Dome of the Rock which has a golden dome and the most contentious religious site in Jerusalem and piece of real estate of only 36 acres controlled by the Muslims and could in fact cause WW3 should they simply be removed. The Jews desperately want to build their Temple there but the specific site on the Temple Mount is unknown – presumed under the Dome of the Rock but believed by most people that this is the site where the Temples once stood!
But what if the Jewish Temples NEVER actually stood there…? If we look at 2 Samuel 24; 1 Chronicles 24:21 and 2 Chronicles 3:1 will tell us the exact location where Solomon’s Temple was built.
The place under the Dome of the Rock in NO way resembles a “threshing floor” that King David bought from Araunah the Jebusite but contains a huge rough rock full of holes and no farmer would use that as a “threshing floor.”
The Bible specifically tells us where the Temple was originally built in the (newly excavated) City of David more specifically in the Jebusite fortress on the “threshing floor.” It would have to be built near the Gihon Springs! So, if both Temples weren’t actually built on the Temple Mount – where were they built? They could very well could have been built several hundred feet south of the Dome of the Rock in the “Ophel” and all we need to do is study some verses the chapters of Nehemiah 2 and Nehemiah 3 it gives a clear pinpoint where the Temples were more likely built! “Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned.” - Nehemiah 2:15. The Key word here is “brook” and if you look at Nehemiah 3:7 – it uses the word “river.” There is only one “brook” – one “river” or “stream” within 5 sq. miles (1.3 kilometres) of Jerusalem and that is the “Gihon” (means “gusher”) as several times a day the water would gush out from there. There is no river – no book – no stream and no running water on the current Temple Mount (Haram Al-Sharif). There was NO spring of any kind in the region where the later Dome of the Rock was situated. This is one MAJOR reason why NO early settlements were made in that area north of the original Zion!
The Gihon Spring (still flowing today) is connected to David’s City and flows out from Hezekiah’s tunnel and is only a few hundred feet across the way towards David’s City. Hezekiah’s tunnel was built by the king during the imminent attack from the Assyrians. Hezekiah took the waters of the Gihon Stream and channelled it to the tunnel. Why is this relevant? (1) When the Ark of the Covenant was in Shiloh, King David brought the Ark and placed it at the Gihon Spring (2) King Solomon was anointed King at the Gihon Spring and (3) King Solomon built the Temple in the “Ophel” which is just up the hill from the Gihon Spring. Josephus called it "Solomon's pool," and Nehemiah calls the “king's pool” (Nehemiah 2:14) and Isaiah (Isaiah 8:6) the "waters of Shiloah that go softly!" The waters very pure and clear and were used for purification. Historian Josephus tells us that in his day they were both "sweet and abundant. However, in 1067 AD there was a major earthquake where 25,000 people were killed and changed the surface shapes and features of the area …and the waters of the Gihon Springs became “bitter.” The Gihon Springs is an amazing water system that worked of which only about a dozen in the world and is also a “syphon” (syphon comes from a Greek root meaning “pipe” or “tube”) where water could be “drawn out from” and was well known to geologists and hydrologists that it could be used to pump water from it, to a great height and up to the Temple at the time.
In any Ancient Tel (mound or small hill) had to have one of the following; Food, Water, Road and Defence for a City to be built and in Jerusalem there is only ONE water source and that’s the Gihon Springs and not a small source but a major water source; the Gihon - the Gusher which was very unique as it can be compared to “geysers” like “Old faithful” in “Yellowstone Park” in America …but WITHOUT the heat! It could pump water 400 ft (40 stories high) from the Gihon. Early Historian Aristeas was a Jew from Egypt who visited Jerusalem and wrote; “There is an inexhaustible reservoir of water as would be expected from an abundant spring “gushing” up naturally from within the Temple.” (Chapter 20; “The Original Temple over the Gihon Springs) Aristeas gave a detailed description of the TEMPLE and Jerusalem and there are actually 5 historical sources that tell us that it actually happened and that there WAS a fountain inside the Temple and that is besides Biblical information from Joel; Ezekiel and Book of Psalms several that there was a fountain at the top of the City of David on the top of Mount Zion at that 1st Temple and also existed in the reconstruction of the 2nd Temple by King Herod. Although there have been many times that Jerusalem has been reconstructed one thing remains the same and that if the GIHON Springs that flows like a life “blood” through the veins of Jerusalem.
Flowing “water” was necessary for the “ceremonial cleansing” in the Temple… The priests going into the Temple would have to cleanse beforehand; water for the ashes of the Red Heifer – so we can see water WAS essential and there is NO water on the traditional Temple Mount above. The original “Pool of Siloam” – where Yeshua (Jesus) healed the lame man was only discovered recently in 2004 but formally announced on August 9, 2005, and received substantial International Media attention as the excavations also revealed that the pool was 225 feet wide, and that steps existed on at least three sides of the pool. The first, Pool of Siloam was the reservoir holding the water brought into the City. The Pool of Bethesda, on the other hand, was excavated in the late 19th century, but it has taken more than 100 years for archaeologists to accurately identify and interpret the site. The landings and steps for entry into the pool Bethesda and the configuration of an upper reservoir and lower pool functioned as a “ritual bathing pool” and were features extremely similar to the Pool of Siloam, except that Siloam was fed by the Gihon Spring while the water supply at Bethesda was provided by rain.
So we must NOT confuse the Pool of Bethesda (located towards the West inside the Old City) to the Pool of Siloam (located outside in East Jerusalem southwards at City of David)… Jerusalem was the stage for many significant miracles in the ministry of our Lord as recorded in the New Testament …and TWO occurred at pools in the neighbourhood; Bethesda (“House of Mercy”) and Siloam. According to the Gospel of John, at the Pool of Siloam Yeshua (Jesus) healed a lame man (John 5:1-16), while at Bethesda He healed a blind man (John 5:2-9). In John 9:1-12 - Yeshua (Jesus) performs the miracle of healing the blind man in a rather unorthodox manner. He first creates some mud or clay out of the dirt and his saliva, then He “anoints” the man's eyes, and then He tells him to go wash in the Pool of Siloam. After Yeshua gives these instructions, John goes out of his way to point out that the name of the pool means; “Sent.” Then Yeshua anointed the man's eyes with the mud and said to him; "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which means; Sent). So, he went and washed and came back seeing!”
The Siloam Pool has been identified as a “mikveh” (ritual bath) – in fact the archaeologist that discovered it said it was “the world’s largest “mikveh and was an acre in size!” Doesn’t make sense if this “mikveh” could take at least 10,000 people to cleanse before entering the Temple why they would walk uphill and get unclean to get to the top of the hill? So, the Temple would have to be close to the “mikveh” especially since it ‘was the largest in the world where the Pool of Siloam is situated. They have now discovered the original stairs from the Herodian period that go back to the City of David where the original Temple would have been.
So, if the Temple stood over the Gihon Springs in David City then how did the (Temple Mount) known to Muslims as the Haram Al-Sharif get their water? There are 37 Cisterns - not running water, but where they collect and store fresh water that was used for Titus’ for his 6,000 soldiers of 10th Legion housed in Fort Antonia situated on the Dome of the Rock. Did you know that the Gihon Springs actually represents “…the water flowing from the ‘Throne of God’? Eden is restored in Revelation 22:1-7 it flows from under the ‘Holy of Holies,’ ‘the Ark of the Covenant’ and the “Shekinah Glory’ was between the two wings of the Cherubim which is on the ‘mercy seat.’ Just 100 years ago NOBODY knew that the City of David was “Mount Zion.”
Until only so recent most people thought that from the north of David’s City was Mount Zion. It was only by accident that archaeologists discovered that The City of David was Mount Zion by finding the tunnel leading to Hezekiah’s tunnel is. So, if they could get Mount Zion the most important mountain in the Bible wrong for hundreds of years …isn’t it also possible that they could get the location of the Temple wrong too? Historian Josephus got it right as he lived during that time and even gave the exact measurements of 600 ft from valley to valley. David’s City the location where the Temple was and the Temple Mount and Muslims Haram Al-Sharif the Fort Antonia built by King Herod? For the last 18 years they have been doing digs in David City and those digs have provided proof without a doubt that the upper part of David’s City – the “Ophel” is where the Temple stood! (The Temples that Jerusalem forgot - by Ernest L. Martin)
So, then what about the current Western Wall or Wailing Wall today? It could have nothing to do with the Jewish Temple because it is attached to Fort Antonia and part of the retaining wall going above and some levels below. It is only as recent as 18 years that latest discovery at the City of David revealing the Temple’s original site close to the Gihon Stream and Pool of Siloam. Ellie Shukran, director of Archaeology in Israel, led the archaeological endeavour and found a coin which helps date the Wailing Wall.
Underneath the lowest stone of the Western Wailing Wall, Shukran found this coin of Valerius Gratus who was the prefect of Rome under Tiberius Caesar. The coin is dated to 19-20 AD, which is very interesting because Herod died in 4 BC. Archaeologists admit that this coin is strong evidence that the Western Wailing Wall was being built 24 years after Herod died, making it impossible that the Wall was part of the Temple built by Herod.
Josephus is known to be an accurate historian with one major smirch on his credibility is the location of the Temple Mount. Josephus claimed that the Temple Mount stood at Gihon Springs, in the “Ophel.” Believing the Dome of the Rock to be the correct spot, many discredited Josephus’ works as a result of this claim! 2,000 years ago, there was NO “Dome of the Rock” NO Al-Aksa Mosque so that would also disclaim Muslims belief of the current Temple Mount!
The rock under the Dome of the Rock is also discredited and not the “Holy of Holies” as believed as it has crosses on it and has no connection to Islam or Judaism. There is now a growing number of experts are grudgingly admitting that Josephus may have been right all along! Instead of the Dome of the Rock, Bible historians are considering the site now known as “Ophel” as the original location of Old Jerusalem and its Temples. They believe this is the site of the “threshing floor” of Ornan. Notably this is the location of Gihon Springs. More importantly, Yeshua (Jesus) was right, when He said that NOT one stone of Herod’s Temple would be left upon another (Matthew 24:2; Luke 19:37-40).
Isn’t it just amazing our generation witnessing so many Prophetic events? At this late hour, this fear producing Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic originating in a laboratory in Wuhan China is a sobering merciful wakeup call and count down to the End of the Age. It is time for the many who profess to love and keep the Commandments of our God and Saviour, to be “shaken” and “awakened” in order to become part of the true believer and remnant Church …and to be ready for the ETERNAL union with Yeshua (Jesus) our Bridegroom. The signs are all around us that; “In the last days difficult times will come” and the Corona virus is being used as a powerful warning and discipline to stop His children from continuing on a reckless “broad path” that has taken many of His children far away from the righteous towards the; “…narrow path that leads to eternal life” (2 Timothy 3:1, Matthew 7:13). Through this time of Global quarantine, our Heavenly Father is giving us added time and mercy to reassess and reprioritize our lives in order to prayerfully obtain the wisdom to fill up with the “oil” of the Holy Spirit and prepare us for what lies ahead!
Are we close to seeing the 3rd Temple being built in Jerusalem? We believe very close! Israel’s “Peace Deal” signed this August with (UAE) United Arab Emirates will encourage other Arab Countries to join. This is huge and very Prophetic as “peace” could be the enabler for Israel to build their 3rd Jewish Temple. The Bible has many Scriptures telling us that this Temple WILL be rebuilt! It has to happen before the Antichrist is revealed! It WILL signal the END of the Last Days and its exciting times to be alive. However, everything is in God’s timing and what He puts in motion NO man can stop unless He Himself intervenes. Yahweh’ – God’s Love NEVER fails but even Heaven inspired Prophecy, can fail - under certain conditions (1 Corinthians 13:8). Jonah gave God’s Prophetic Word to Nineveh …but, the Prophecy of Nineveh’s destruction which was truly God’s Prophetic Word and failed. WHY? Because the people repented! Conversely, the Prophet Ezekiel fore-told an amazing Temple which should have been standing (instead of Herod’s Temple) when Messiah came but this Prophecy also failed because of Israel’s rebellion! Now, the Ezekiel Temple can NEVER be built by the Father’s Kingdom. For it included animals’ sacrifices (which ended with the Death of Messiah - Hebrews 10:1-4; 8-10). When a replica of this Temple is built, it will appear to be the fulfilment of Ezekiel’s amazing Temple Prophecy - a Temple which was foretold to house the Messiah... And when the 3rd Temple stands, the Antichrist will reign from within it! Time is near!
We are that CHOSEN Generation, and this is a day when many promises will be apprehended, and divine destiny achieved. Our “Kairos” moment is at hand (an appointed time for heaven and earth can align). Our Prophetic destiny in God is in the wind and though we can’t see - it we can feel it! We are promised a generation who will do “greater works.” (John 14:12) These will be the “sons of the Kingdom” who carry the 7-fold Spirit of God that rested on Yeshua (Jesus) and those who heed this call and allow God’s “pruning” will begin to emerge with considerable anointing and authority for substantial advancement. It’s a time to re-think, re-structure, and seek how God wants us to shift - “What must we do to be ready, to advance, to breakout, to stake our claim? It may NOT seem like it in the natural with this Covid-19 Virus from China as we are witnessing so much “wickedness” and “lawlessness in America and across the world, but God will deal more harshly with evil structures!
We must NOT be afraid of this new change as “pruning” is to bring forth much fruit. What was impossible in former seasons WILL be possible now if we personally make the shift! Every test of the past has sharpened us as believers for now and for the future! Every time we overcome; we are strengthened! Are you prepared for the next level? Are you in Kingdom alignment? We are at WAR just as the Lord warned us it would be as a part of a Generation seeing; “The kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it!” This does NOT mean the LAWLESSNESS of the godless world of today! It is for believers and is indeed a puzzling verse at first! How can God’s Kingdom suffer and what do violent people have to do with it? The most important fact about the Kingdom of God is that there is a King! There can be NO kingdom without a king and being a servant of God in His Kingdom requires an understanding and an acceptance of God’s rule and His sovereignty. God’s purposes for His universe are “righteous” and “Eternal” and He accomplishes them through people that are chosen and guided by Him. We as true believers are called to “violently take spiritual dominion by force” for our King Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and recognize that Holy Spirit wants to get us “aligned” with the Lord of Hosts (Hebrew 4:12). It is a time of divine confrontation with either the “Sword of the Spirit” or the “Sword of the Lord.” It is time to: Get Prophetically aligned! Worship in Spirit and Truth! The Presence of God and His throne are at hand! We must join His work! Yes, it is time for the King’s dominion to come and His will to be done!
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With “lockdown” and difficult “recovery” still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
