Yes, as the video pointed out -
today God lives inside us
we have repented and put our trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord.
we are the temple of God...
1 Corinthians 3:16 NKJV
Do you not know
that you are the temple of God
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
Colossians 1:27, Galatians 2:20, Ephesians 3:17, and
2 Corinthians 13:5, 2 Corinthians 6:16 b
And note that there are many Jews today
who have recognized Jesus as Messiah
and who have repented and received Jesus as their Messiah.
God lives in those Messianic Jews.
there are many Jews in Israel who have not recognized
Jesus as Messiah
and are planning on building a New Temple.
I will give you information about...

Information about the
NEW Jewish Temple
that is going to be Built.
It will be called
The Third Temple.
A very quick History of the first and second
David wanted to built the first temple because he loved God.
But 1 Chronicles 28:3
tells us that God said "no."
So David's son Solomon built the first Jewish temple.
Solomon speaks about building the temple in 1 Kings 5:5.
(God did allow David to do some preparation for the temple.)
The first temple is also called
Around 586 B.C.
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon
attacked Jerusalem and destroyed Solomon's temple .
2 kings 25
In 538 B.C. Cyrus of Persia issued an order allowing exiled Jews to
return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple.
The book of Ezra
contains all the facts concerning the temple’s restoration.
The work on the second temple was completed around 515 B.C.
Cyrus was gone and Darius was reigning in Persia at that time.
Persia = Iran of today.
So the second Jewish temple was built.
It is sometimes called Herod's temple.
That temple was standing
and being used
when Jesus walked the earth.
That temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.
Both temples were destroyed
on the same Jewish calendar day -
The 9th of Av.
The Jewish people are
preparing to build a third temple.
A couple of days ago, I saw this news story...
600 Jews rehearse for
singing during the third temple services
I saw this news story...

You can see lots about the progress for the temple here...
As you scroll down the page, you will see stories about
RED HEIFERS ARRIVE IN ISRAEL that they will need for the temple
stories about the weavers who are creating the

Here are some frequently asked questions:
Here is another one of the temple institute pages.
See below for information found on this page...
The major focus of the Institute
is its efforts towards the beginning of the
actual rebuilding of the Holy Temple.
Towards this end, the Institute has begun to restore and construct the sacred vessels for the service of the Holy Temple.
These vessels, which God commanded Israel to create,
can be seen today at our exhibition in Jerusalem's Old City Jewish Quarter.
They are made according to the exact specifications of the Bible, and have been constructed from the original source materials, such as gold, copper, silver and wood.
These are authentic, accurate vessels, not merely replicas or models.
All of these items are fit and ready
for use in the service of the
There are more interesting pieces of information on that page.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-17 NKJV
(especially focus on verses 3-4)
tells us that a
Third Temple will be built in Jerusalem.
And the "man of sin" also called "the anti-christ"
(there are many names for the anti-christ)
will sit in the temple
and falsely say he is "God."
Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of ]sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the [mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only [e]He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Also read Satan speaking in Isaiah 14:14
Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14 NKJV
speak of this anti-christ event.
Luke 21:20-24 speaks about this event also.
“So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
Mark 13:14 NKJV
I will summarize...
During (or right before) The Tribulation,
the temple will be rebuilt.
The Jews in the Holy land will be happy.
They will - not - recognize
that the man
(who I will call the "anti-christ")
The Jews will think he is good.
But when he sits in the temple and calls himself "God" they will realize that he is wicked.
They will realize that the armies surrounding Israel are for their destruction.
The Bible says that
when these Jews see this happen,
they are to
run to the mountains.
Some Christian groups
are reaching out to tell Jews in Israel about this
upcoming event so that they will recognize it when it happens and RUN.
God will protect those who flee to the mountains.
God will supernaturally protect them when they get there.
Most theologians think
God is telling them to go to Petra.
There have been Christians who have hidden
New Testament Bibles
for the Jews to find and read.
Also some Christians have left some supplies for them.
When the anti-christ
goes into the third temple and says that he is "God"
call it the
"abomination of desolation."
The Jews in the Holy land are instructed
in Luke 20:21
when they see this happen.
The term "abomination of desolation"
is also referred to in
Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:31, and Daniel 12:11.
In the Old Testament the Jews also had an "abomination of desolation" experience.
It was when
who was a Greek King
persecuted the Jews
and rendered their temple unclean
in various ways
sacrificing a pig (an unclean animal)
on the altar in the temple.
The Jewish History Book - 1 Maccabees talks about this event.
In The Tribulation,
when the Jews who hear that
the anti-christ has
gone into the temple and called himself "God"
many of them will remember Antiochus Epiphanes.
Anyone who does not escape to the mountains,
will be killed.
And just as when Moses and the children of Israel escaped Egypt and some Egyptians came with them, I would say that God would allow any Gentile who runs with the Jews to be saved.
What about the Gentiles in other areas of the world?
The Bible is not totally clear.
But I believe the Bible is telling us that if you have repented of your sins and Jesus is LORD of your life then you will be raptured. There are many verses about this event, but I will highlight only one set of verses.
Jesus told the believers in the Philadelphia church that because you have kept my word and have not denied my name - you will be kept from the trial that will come upon the whole world.
See Revelation 3:8-13
I believe that group of verses is describing the Rapture.
One thing is very clear in the Bible...
NEVER take the mark of the beast.
It is the only sin that you cannot repent of.
See our pages on the Rapture and on The Mark of the Beast.
