Is Something Prophetic Happening In Israel?March 10, 2019
In late August 2018 a red heifer was born in Israel some believe this is a significant sign of the end times and will lead to the rapture holy cow that’s what I’m going to be discussing in this video but before I do make sure to subscribe to my channel and click the bell if you’re new so you don’t.
Miss any of my future uploads I upload new videos every Thursday and livestream every Sunday before I get started do you think the red heifer that was born in Israel has anything to do with end time Bible prophecy let me.
Know in the comments section one article that outlines the red heifers connection to the end times is by the Sun and it’s entitled apocalypse cow first red heifer born.
In Israel for 2,000 years triggers Armageddon fears after Christian and Jewish.
Holy books say it will bring the end of the world the article goes on to read in both Christianity and Judaism the red heifer is central to the prediction about the end of times after sacrificing the Red Cow construction can begin on the Third Temple in Jerusalem according to some professing Christian churches the building of the Third.
Temple is central to the fulfillment of major endtime events including the rapture a seven-year tribulation the appearance of the Antichrist and Armageddon this line of prophetic interpretation is called futurism which teaches that many prophecies in the book of Revelation are going to take place sometime in the future but there are some major flaws with this and I’m.
Going to get into a few of them right now first of all the location where the Third Temple needs to be built is occupied by the Dome of the rock this is an Islamic shrine.
And holy site and there is no way judging by the current strife in the.
Middle East between Muslims and Jews that Muslim leaders.
Would allow Jews to build a temple over or near their shrine.
This location is important for the building of the third temple because according to Jewish tradition Mount Moriah now under the Dome of the rock is where the previous temples most holy place was situated but according to Islamic folklore the Dome of the rock built in 691 ad marks the spot where Muhammad ascended to heaven so the Dome of the rock is not going anywhere anytime soon and don’t count on a Jewish temple being erected in its place or close to.
It any attempt to do so would probably lead to a war in the Middle East not to mention even if the Third Temple was built its sacrifices would be unacceptable to God the reason.
Being is because the sacrificial system was abolished after Jesus died on the cross for our sins speaking of Jesus Christ Hebrews chapter 10 verses 5 through 10 says therefore when he came into the world he said sacrifice and offering you meeting God the Father did not desire but a body you have prepared for me in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you had no pleasure then I.
Have come and the volume of the book it is written of me to do your Will O God previously saying sacrifice and offering burnt offerings and offering for sin you did not desire nor had pleasure in them which are offered.
According to the law then he said behold I have come to do your Will O God he takes away the first the first isn’t reference to the animal sacrifices which were part of the ceremonial law that he may establish the second the second is in reference to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ but that will we have been.
Sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once all those animal sacrifices which were made in the courtyard of the temple were symbolic of Jesus’s sacrifice for our sins and once Jesus died they were no longer necessary they had fulfilled their purpose so to try to reinstitute that would be a step backwards in the Christian religion therefore it.
Is not God’s will for a third temple to be built not to mention all of the scriptures that futurist prophecy interpreters use to support the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem our misinterpreted they are misinterpreting Scripture one of the main scriptures they use as Daniel chapter 9 verse.
27 it says then he which they claim is the Antichrist shall confirm a covenant with many for one week which they think is the 7-year tribulation but in the middle of the week he shall bring.
An end to sacrifice and offering which is supposed to happen in the temple futurists claimed that in the middle of the seven-year tribulation after the rapture the Antichrist will enter the third temple and cause the sacrifices to cease but if you read the context of this passage.
Which is verses 25 through 27 it indicates that this is actually part of a larger prophecy that covers 70 prophetic weeks or 490 literal years which started with the decree to rebuild Jerusalem the decree to rebuild Jerusalem was made by the Persian King Artaxerxes during the seventh year of his reign according to Ezra chapter 7 verses 7 through 8 and 13 through 24 the seventh year of.
Art exerts his reign was in 457 BC so that’s when the 70 weeks or 490 Year prophecy began now when you add 490 years to 457 BC that leads.
To 34 AD that’s when Stefan was stoned by the Jews in the book of Acts chapter 7 that was the last.
Chance God gave the name of Israel as a whole to repent and accept the Messiah through the preaching of Stefan but it didn’t work out to will and they ended up stoning Stefan notice what happened in the middle of the last week or seven years of that prophecy and 31 ad Jesus was crucified that’s why Daniel chapter.
9 verse 27 says but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering when Jesus died.
On the cross the animal sacrifices were abolished this has nothing to do with the Antichrist entering the third temple in the future and causing its sacrifices to come to an end what good reason do you have to take that last seven years which is part of a larger four hundred and ninety year prophecy and.
Cut it off from that period and say.
It will take place sometime in the future it doesn’t make sense then it’s no longer of 490 year or 70 weeks prophecy now I’m going to share with you another scripture which futurists use to.
Claim that a third temple will be built and the Antichrist will enter it the interesting thing about this scripture is that it does talk about the Antichrist and the temple it’s second Thessalonians chapter 2 verses three through four and it says 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 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped so that he sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that He is God if you just read.
That at face value and someone tells you it means a third temple will be built and the Antichrist will enter it that seems to make sense but that’s not what this is talking about here and that is why it’s important to dig deeper into the Word of God to understand it better which is what we are going to do right now I’m going to show.
You from the Word of God this is not talking about a literal temple it’s talking about the.
Church when writing to the Corinthian church Paul said that they were the temple in first Corinthians chapter 3 verse 16 stating do you not know that you.
Are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you and both the church and the temple are called God’s house in.
The New Testament for example first Timothy chapter 3 verse 15 says but if I am delayed I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God which is the Church of the Living God the pillar and ground of the truth the Church of God.
Is called the house of God here and in speaking about the household or Church of God Ephesians chapter 2 verses 19 through 22 says now therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners but fellow-citizens with the Saints and members of.
The household of God having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets Jesus Christ Himself being the chief Cornerstone in whom the whole building being fitted together grows into a holy temple in the Lord in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the.
Spirit it calls the household of God which is the Church of God a holy temple so the word temple sometimes in the Bible.
Is in reference to the Church of God it’s never in reference to a third temple that’s going to be built.
In Jerusalem and I’m not the only one that thinks the temple is the church many renowned Protestant reformers preachers and.
Scholars have believed and proclaimed the same thing for example Matthew Henry’s concise commentary reads as God was in the temple of old and worshiped there and is in and with his church now so the Antichrist here mentioned is a usurper of God’s authority in the Christian.
Church who claims divine honors in addition Barnes notes on the Bible states sitteth in the temple of God that is in the Christian Church it is by no means necessary to understand this of the temple at Jerusalem which was standing at the.
Time this epistle was written because one the phrase the temple of God is several times.
Used with reference to the Christian Church and to the.
Temple was the proper symbol of the church.
And an apostle trained amidst the Hebrew institutions would naturally speak of the church as the temple of God the Temple of Jerusalem was regarded as the peculiar – Wehling place of God on earth when the Christian Church was.
