The Third Jewish Temple

I read this article: “The Temple Institute, dedicated to rebuilding ancient holy site, now using new internet tools to bring its message to the masses”

Source: The third Jewish Temple is coming to your Facebook feed

Below is the post I wrote concerning the article. G-d bless you.

To my Jewish and Gentile friends – greetings to you.

Tisha B’Av mourns the destruction of the first and second temples; moreover, in modern Judaism, it is also a day of mourning because the present generation has not rebuilt it. Thus, there is great excitement in the hope of rebuilding the third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and on the historic, Temple Mount. However, there is a great misunderstanding when it comes to rebuilding the third Jewish Temple.

I believe the Prophets are very clear: “Thus saith HaShem: The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool; where is the house that ye may build unto Me? And where is the place that may be My resting-place? For all these things have My hand made, and so all these things came to be, saith HaShem; but on this man will I look, even on him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at My word”Isaiah 66:1-2.

HaShem’s message, through His prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah), is that He is looking for men and women who are clothed with the humility of repentance from sins and obedience to His word. Those who “tremble at His ‘dabar'” or word are those who believe it, respect it, and live it. Looking to the Temple was the wrong focus and a false hope of salvation from the Babylonians for an 8th century Jew in Yeshayahu’s day who was not repentant of sin and did not obey Torah. The prophets categorically condemned the hypocrisy of faith in the Temple instead of faith in HaShem alone:

“Thus saith HaShem of hosts, the G-d of Israel: Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words, saying: ‘The temple of HaShem, the temple of the HaShem, the temple of HaShem, are these'” – Jeremiah 7:3-4.

While the Temple Institute is well meaning in its purpose to rebuild the Third Jewish Temple, it is also promoting error and is a false hope for the world. If Yermiyah (Jeremiah) were walking the streets of Jerusalem today, he would march right down into the old city, stand at the entrance of the Temple Institute, and confidently declare to them all, “Trust ye not in lying words, saying: ‘The temple of HaShem, the temple of the HaShem, the temple of HaShem, are these.'” The Jewish prophets did not believe that the Temple Structure was the hope for Israel or Judah. Yermiyah did not tip-toe around declaring it a lie to put confidence or hope in a building made with human hands – temple or otherwise – even though his own father was a priest who served in the Temple! It is still a lie today.

A very wise, Jewish king questioned the idea of HaShem dwelling in a temple made with hands though he was chosen by HaShem to build the very first one.

Solomon prayed,  “But will G-d indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain You, how much less this house which I have built” – 1 Kings 8:27.

The G-d of Israel cannot be contained in heaven nor in the highest heaven of the entire universe much less in a temple built for Him.

A brilliant Jewish debater once stated that Hashem does not dwell in buildings made with hands.

Consider further that the actual rebuilding of the Third Jewish Temple is a sign. It is a sign that the time of Jacob’s Trouble is near:

“And these are the words that HaShem spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the LORD: We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child; wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he be saved” – Jeremiah 30:4-7.

A young Rabbi of Nazareth, named Yeshua, also spoke of the time of Jacob’s Trouble. Yeshua said that the time of Jacob’s Trouble would be realized in the Temple in Jerusalem and mark a period of human suffering for Israel and the world unprecedented by all of history. Yeshua also predicted that the Herodian Temple would be destroyed, and His prophecy was fulfilled in A.D. 70 exactly as He predicted! According to Torah, Yeshua is a true prophet of HaShem since His prophecy that the Herodian Temple would be destroyed was 100% fulfilled. Because of Yeshua’s prophetic accuracy, Torah permits us to believe His prophecy that the time of Jacob’s Trouble, predicted by Yermiyah, will reach its climax some time after the third Jewish Temple is rebuilt.

According to Yeshua, Yermiyah’s prediction of Jacob’s Trouble cannot be fulfilled until the third Jewish Temple is rebuilt.

The third Jewish Temple is going to be rebuilt, and some time afterward, the Time of Jacob’s Trouble will torment the entire planet. It will be Hell on earth and that rebuilt Jewish Temple will save no one; instead, it will become a snare to those who put their trust in it.

According to Yermiyah and Yeshua, putting one’s hope in the rebuilding of the third Jewish Temple is a lie because it will begin the countdown to the great wrath of HaShem.

So, what should the Temple Institute put its hope in and promulgate through social media?

We will answer this question, but first let’s study more of the ancient words of Yermiyah the prophet:

“Behold, the days come, saith HaShem, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah; not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; forasmuch as they broke My covenant, although I was a lord over them, saith HaShem. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith HaShem, I will put My Torah in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their G-d, and they shall be My people; and they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying: ‘Know HaShem’; for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith HaShem; for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more” – Yermiyah 31:31-34.

Yermiyah predicted that Moshe’s covenant would be revised – even superseded! HaShem promised Israel and Judah a new covenant; instead of writing His Torah on tables of stone, He will write Torah on their hearts! After He writes Torah on their hearts, He will be their G-d and they “shall be My people.” Dear Jewish friend, do not put your hope in the rebuilding of your temple even though it will take place and must take place, but put your hope in Yermiyah’s prophecy of the New Covenant – the Torah written on your heart!

Do you know what Yeshua of Nazareth’s shared with His disciples during Seder on His last Passover eve? He quoted from the New Covenant passage in Yermiyah saying, “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” – Matthew 26:28.

Yeshua broke the unleavened bread and passed it to His disciples. He held the cup of blessing and declared that Yermiyah’s prophecy was fulfilled in His own flesh and blood as the final Pascal Lamb.

The New Covenant, spoken by Yermiyah the prophet, has been completely fulfilled in Yeshua of Nazareth – through His life, sacrificial death, and resurrection from the dead. Ancient and sacred, Jewish writings confirm these facts (Hebrews 10):

        For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

(The blood of bulls and goats were not sufficient for G-d to remember sins no more. Yermiyah explained the New Covenant would do away with animal sacrifice.)

Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering thou would not, but a body has thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou has had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

(HaShem had no pleasure in sacrifice and burnt offering but in the One who delighted in doing His will – the One who did not need to offer sacrifices for sin because He, Himself, was without sin.)

 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin   thou would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the Torah; Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O’ G-d. He takes away the first, that he may establish the second.

(G-d has taken away the first – Moshe’s covenant given at Sinai, and now G-d establishes the New Covenant predicted by Yermiyah.)

By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yeshua the Messiah once for all.

(Jews are no longer sanctified to G-d through Levitical sacrifices but through the offering of the sinless body of Yeshua HaMashiach once and for all; He is risen from the dead.)

And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of G-d; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

(Through Yeshua, all sin can be forgiven once and for all – He perfects forever those who are sanctified by faith in Him. A Third Jewish Temple will not do this.)

Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is   the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith HaShem, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

(Through Yeshua’s death and resurrection, HaShem initiated and ratified the covenant He predicted through Yermiyah the prophet. Yermiyah said the Messiah would write the Torah on our hearts and minds and all our sins and iniquities would never again be remembered.)

       Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

(Thus, a third Temple is entirely unnecessary in this regard!)

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yeshua, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of G-d; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

(HaShem’s desire is that we draw near to Him with a true heart in full assurance of faith in Yeshua. This is the new and living way Yermiyah predicted would come!)

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of G-d, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

(The blood of the covenant is the blood of Yeshua the Messiah that was shed on the cross at Calvary; it was His shed blood (death) and resurrection that confirmed the New Covenant that Yermiyah said would bring forgiveness for sin.)

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, saith   HaShem. And again, HaShem shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living G-d.”

(It is a dreadful thing to disbelieve in Yeshua of Nazareth as the Messiah. HaShem will judge His people; He will judge whether or not they believed or rejected Yeshua HaMashiach. All unbelievers, both Jew and Gentile, who do not repent and believe in Yeshua of Nazareth will suffer the severest punishment HaShem has prepared in the Lake of Fire – it is eternal, conscience damnation.)

Dear Reader, please do not put your hope in the rebuilding of the Third Jewish Temple, but put your hope in someone infinitely more powerful, life giving, and eternal – Yeshua of Nazareth, the Messiah of Israel.

It is He who shed His blood on the cross so our sins could be forgiven and His Torah could be written on our hearts exactly as Yermiyah predicted!

It is He who’s blood ratified the New Covenant predicted by Yermiyah the prophet.

It is He alone who is the Hope of Glory, the Hope of Israel, and the Savior of the World.

He died as the perfect sacrifice for our sins, and He rose again from the dead. Yeshua is alive. It is He who will write HaShem’s Torah on your heart and transform your life by delivering you from all desires to sin that are in your heart.

The desire to sin that is within us is a horrible weapon against us, but Yeshua came to set us free from sin and to write His Torah on our hearts – eliminating our slavery to the sins we were once in bondage to perform.

To summarize:

Yermiyah the prophet boldly proclaimed that hope in the Temple was a lie! The Temple Institute is well meaning but wrong.

Yermiyah predicted the time of Jacob’s Trouble. The Temple Institute is unwittingly fulfilling Yermiyah’s and Yeshua’s predictions concerning the time of Jacob’s Trouble.

Yermiyah prophesied of the New Covenant with the House of Israel and Judah that would result in His Spirit writing His Torah on the human heart and forgiving us of all our sins; no honest, Jewish believer in Torah can deny this promise of HaShem.

Yeshua of Nazareth predicted the destruction of the Herodian Temple, and it came to pass in 70 A.D. This fact is both mourned and memorialized during Tisha B’Av.

Yeshua of Nazareth prophesied that Jacob’s Trouble would not begin until some time after the Third Temple is rebuilt.

The Temple Institute, while sincere, is actually fulfilling (if they follow through) Yeshua’s prophecy of a rebuilt temple prior to the time of Jacob’s Trouble and His forthcoming return to earth.

Yeshua of Nazareth declared Himself to be the fulfillment of Yermiah’s New Covenant prophecy with the house of Israel and Judah.

The ancient Jewish author of Hebrews irrefutably proves Yeshua of Nazareth to be the fulfillment of Yermiyah’s New Covenant prophecy.

The evidence for believing in Yeshua HaMashiac is flawless.

May you come to know Him who declared Himself to be the fulfillment of the New Covenant spoken by Yermiyah the prophet.

HaSham does not want you to put your trust in building the third Temple; HaShem wants you to have a broken and contrite spirit and tremble at His word by repenting of your sins and believing in Yeshua HaMashiach.

Blessing to you, dear Reader.

The Solution To The World’s Core Issue

The recent speech from the Prime Minister of Israel reveals the great concern Israel has regarding some of the world’s most powerful leaders’ unwillingness to stop Iran.

I share his concerns for Israel and the world and pray that the Lord will raise up leaders of truth.

I too, am amazed at the polices and practices of some of the world’s most powerful politicians, and I pray for them.

World leaders are hard to understand.

Is there a solution?

Yes, Jesus of Nazareth the Ultimate, Dominate World Leader to whom all world leaders will bow and confess that He is LORD of ALL.

Do you know Him?

He is the Savior of the world: “Little Children, these things write I unto that ye sin not, but if any man sin we have an advocate with the Father – Jesus Christ the Righteous. And, He is the propitiation for our sins and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world” – 1 John 2:1-2.

He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The foundational problem in the world today is not our political leaders or a nuclear Iran.

The core issue is the sin of the world.

Sin is on display as we watch the world’s most powerful leaders try to broker a deal with Iran. Likewise, sin is in full force wherever humans exist for: “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23.

Yes, dear soul, we have all sinned against God. We are sinners by birth; we cannot help but sin and continue to sin we shall if we will not partake in the antidote – the holy medicine which is Christ Jesus, Himself.

Your life, today, is a life of death. You breathe but you cannot perceive what is life.

You are like an dying man laying on his bed, comatose, breathing, opening his eyes in lethargic happenstance but still unable to realize or perceive the shadow of death around him until his last breath opens the doorway to the reality of judgment and hell.

You are like the deceived teen plunged into the techno abyss of irresponsibility and ease ever watching and entertained but never seeing – seeing the purpose for your existence.

Be assured of this, dear reader. You are but a breath away from eternal fire and damnation. O’ how I pray that you will cast off your blind’s man cloak and come to the Son of David, the true and living God. Let nothing hinder you or get in your way of coming to Jesus. Put your hand to the plow and never look back. He can give you sight!

He is EVERYTHING that you are missing and everything you need in this life and in the one to come.

Sin dominates the world and, subsequently, our souls; but, there is one who is Himself the Great Physician who not only heals but transforms the souls of men and sets us free from our slavery to sin and its eternal consequences.

Where sin abounds, His grace much more abounds.

Let Jesus Christ transform your life, your soul, and your eternal future.

Pray for world leaders to repent and follow Jesus Christ. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for they shall prosper that love her.

Watch and pray.

God bless you.

US Rejects Israel’s Demand That Iran Recognize Israel’s Right To Exist

Dear friend,

Iran will NOT recognize Israel’s right to exist. Israel has requested that any “nuclear deal” with Iran include a clear and unambiguous Iranian recognition of Israel’s right to exist.” To this the USA responded: “This is an agreement that doesn’t deal with any other issues, nor should it.”

However,

The LORD God of Israel, and His Holy One the Redeemer of Israel – the LORD of Armies, Jesus of Nazareth – does recognize Israel’s right to exist – Jeremiah 31.

I believe the Bible not Iran or the State Department.

God bless you.

The HOPE of Israel and the World

Dear Friend,

The world will isolate Israel, condemn Israel, hate Israel, and attack Israel. However, the LORD God of Israel will not forsake His people. Our LORD Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, will save Israel and “all Israel will be saved”Romans 11. Every REPENTANT Jew of Israel will follow their Messiah when the LORD “turns ungodliness from Jacob” and ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED.

The Hope of Israel and the world is not in the P5+1 or any other human entity, group, philosophy, or religion. The Hope of Israel and the world is in the LORD GOD of Israel – the King of JacobJesus of Nazareth the KING OF THE JEWS. Look to Him and be saved all the ends of the earth.

Isaiah 9:6-7

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The Messiah of Israel will one day RULE our world all by Himself. The P5+1 WILL NOT BE NEEDED. He will one day SIT on the THRONE of DAVID. Until then, let us preach the Gospel to all nations and USE the existence of the MIRACLE of modern day Israel as a sign to modern man of the TRUTH – there is no other God but the LORD God of Israel and His REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL who is JESUS OF NAZARETH.

The existence of modern day Israel is a gracious sign, predicted by the prophets of the Old Testament,  from the LORD GOD OF THE BIBLE to the whole world (including unbelieving Israel) that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is THE ONLY TRUTH FOR ALL NATIONS – REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL. Forsake your idols and your religion and serve the Messiah, Jesus, alone. Every nation on earth must repent of their idolatry and sin and serve the Messiah of Israel alone.

Opinion and Preference Dominate Policy Toward Israel

Prayerful consider the following, dear reader; may the Lord Jesus give you wisdom and insight through the power of His Spirit.

The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to come address congress, the Senate and the House, which includes democrats and republicans.

US National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, states that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s acceptance to address congress is a show of partisanship.

This is an interesting response in light of the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu will be speaking to all members of congress.

The OPINION that it is a show of partisanship for Netanyahu to accept an invitation to speak to the United States congress regarding one of the most crucial issues in the 21st century and one that will directly affect the Nation of Israel is, in fact, AN OPINION.

Yet, the Prime Minister has kindly stated: “I respect the White House and the US president but on a serious subject, it’s my duty to do everything for Israel’s security.”

 Islamic Iran’s desire is to “wipe Israel off the face of the map.” Netanyahu and Obama know this well.

Islamic terrorists, who fund and support Islamic terrorists – Hezbollah and Hamas – run the government of Iran. Hezbollah and Hamas are sworn enemies of Israel.

President Obama and his administration are dealing with Islamic terrorists who hate Israel.

NO WONDER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS ADDRESSING, IN BIPARTISAN FASHION, ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

The deception that is currently taking place in the world through America’s politics in the Middle East is growing.

Israel is the ONLY Democracy in the Middle East; they actually believe in human rights.

Israel is surrounded by Islamic nations filled with people that hate her.

Why can’t people see the obvious? THE FACTS ARE THE FACTS.

When it comes to Israel, I am realizing that the FACTS DON’T MATTER to many people.

Current policy makers, kings, secretaries of state, national security advisors, presidents, and even Christians ignore plain, simple facts. What matters is OPINION. Opinion and preference dominate POLICY.

Israel, “…VAIN is the help of man” – Psalm 60:11.

That is a fact!

AND SO IS THE RETURN OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH:)

Put your TRUST in Him.

God bless.

Congressional Responsibility: American Foreign Policy – Israel and Iran

Dear friend,

Here is an article calling on congress to hear Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech in a joint of session of congress on March 3, 2015 regarding the Iranian nuclear threat and Islamic terrorism.

May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to strengthen and encourage you.

God bless.

Will the Obama Administration Stop Iran?

Hello, dear reader, I pray the the Lord Jesus Christ continues to strengthen you and fill you with His love. If you are aware of current happenings in the US and the world, you will know there is conflict between the Obama administration and the Israeli government. The Israeli government does not want the US to make a bad “deal” with Iran regarding its nuclear aspirations. Iran has repeatedly stated that their desire is to “wipe Israel off the map.” Yet, Iran’s nuclear goals are for “peaceful purposes?” The Obama team’s desire to make a deal with Iran – a deal that Israel believes will not keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons – is why Israel will not concede to Obama’s Iranian strategy.

Next month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is going to address the United States Congress (regardless of the Obama administrations boycott of his address) to warn of the dangers of a nuclear Iran and the rise of global, Islamic Jihad against Christians and Jews.

Iran’s proxy terrorist organizations are spread throughout the Middle East and their goal is to destroy Israel. The prophets of the Bible predicted that this will happen. Why did the God of Israel predict these things? He did this to prove to you that He is God and that there is no other!

The Scriptures repeatedly call those who read them and believe them to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with the LORD God of Israel – Jesus Christ:

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8

We, as doers of the Word, are to understand justice, equity, and every good path.

Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. Proverbs 2:9

Our politics are truly in heaven; the LORD’s rule is over all the earth. He said that He will save Israel and all those who call upon the LORD God of Israel for salvation.

As a born-again follower of Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah of Israel, we should be standing up for the Jews’ right to exist, the Jews’ right to live in their undivided biblical homeland, and weave the Gospel into the proven truth of bible prophecy just as God, Himself, has done. Why? So, unbelievers will repent and believe in the LORD God of Israel, Jesus Christ, and be saved.

Here is an article regarding Netanyahu and Obama. God bless.
