It’s Insane to Claim a 3rd Temple at Jerusalem Will Be Built!
Not only is it the height of insanity to promote this supposition, but it borders on blasphemy! Many mediocre Bible students are aware of the original Temple built by Solomon and the 2nd more humble Temple rebuilt by Zerubbabel after the seventy years of Judah’s captivity in Babylon. But they are entirely oblivious to the Temple which Herod built after tearing down Zerubbabel’s Temple to, and including, its foundations (Josephus’ Antiq. 15:11:3).
Testimony is found at The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. R-Z, p.p. 550-551, under subtitle “Temple, Jerusalem”:
“THE TEMPLE OF HEROD:As was pointed out above, this temple lasted a much shorter time than the other two. Begun ca. 20 B.C.,the basic structure was completed in about a year and a half, but subsidiary construction was still in process a half-century later (John 2:20),and may not have been entirely finished when the destruction came in A.D. 70. Although on the same site as the two preceding temples, this one involved an almost complete rebuilding according to the new and then prevailing style of architecture, the Hellenistic-Roman, but with retention of the Solomonic arrangement of rooms within the sanctuary itself. It is logically absurd, therefore, to confuse Herod’s and Zerubbabel’s temples under the name of ‘second temple.’ Herod’s was definitely the third temple, no matter what tradition may say.[Note: Herod’s temple was satanically inspired. C.A.E]
“Our chief literary sources are the NT, Josephus (principally Antiq. XV.xii; War V.v), and the Mishna tractate Middoth. The brief description in Philo Special Laws 1.13 (De Monarchia 11.2) istoo vague and general to be of use. The descriptions of Josephus and the Mishna are both in considerable detail, but unfortunately not in complete agreement with each other. Thus problems arise when reconstruction is attempted. Archaeology plays a valuable part in the extensive literature, since certain parts of the substructure of Herod’s temple are still extant under the large area or court around the Dome of the Rock. This area, which to some degree corresponds to the area around Herod’s temple, is now called el-Haram esh-Sharif, usually translated ‘the Noble Sanctuary,’ though ‘the glorious holy place’ is perhaps a more exact rendering ....”[Note: “glorious holy place” to whom? C.A.E.]
John 2:20: “Then said the [Edomite]-jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?”
Therefore, the 4th (or true 3rd) Temple was torn down 2,000 years ago, and was rebuilt in three days (John 2:21-22):
“21 But he spake of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Yahshua had said.” Note: “unto them” is wanting in most manuscripts.
Many mediocre Bible students of today don’t understand that Yahshua Christ was the true 3rd, and final Temple, of whom we White Israelites are a part! Not only is Yahshua Christ the true 3rd Temple, but we who are chosen through Abraham, Issac and Jacob, share in that 3rd Temple with Him, 2 Cor. 6:16-18:
“16 And what agreement hath the temple of Yahweh with idols? for ye are the temple of the living Almighty; as Yahweh hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Almighty, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them [the unclean nonwhites of this world], and be ye separate, saith Yahweh, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith Yahweh Almighty.”
[Note: “thing” is not in v. 17. Also the word “touch” at v.7 means, according to The Complete Word Study, New Testament by Spiros Zodhiates, p. 245, in part, “... In 2 Cor. 6:17, ‘touch no unclean thing’ ... means have no dealings with the heathen ...” which would especially include sexual intercourse!
At Deut. 7:3 it is recorded: “Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.”
At 1 Kings 11:2 it is recorded: “Of the nations concerning which Yahweh said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.” (See also Neh. 13:25-26.)
At Exo. 34:14-16 it is recorded: “14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous Almighty: 15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; 16 And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.”
At Ezra 9:12 it is recorded: “Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.”
For a White Israelite to have sexual intercourse with a nonwhite heathen would in effect defile the Temple of the offspring, separating it forever from the Temple of Yahshua Christ! Inasmuch as Yahshua Christ is the true 3rd Temple, to “rebuild” Him, it would be necessary first to tear Him down by crucifying Him again, and then His raising from the grave a second time! If such an idiocy were true, it would mean we Israelites, also being Temples, would have to die twice and be resurrected twice !!??
Jeremiah’s prophecy at 19:10-11 states in part concerning the “Broken Bottle Nation”: “10 Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee, 11 And shalt say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter’s vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.”
This prophecy was totally fulfilled when Rome laid siege to Jerusalem in 70 A.D., destroying the city and the Temple, never to be rebuilt. Paul predicted this same event shortly before his death at Romans 16:20: “And Yahweh of peace shall bruise Satan (i.e., Edomite-jews) under your feet shortly.”
Christ warned his followers “... there will the eagles be gathered ...” The eagle being an insignia of the Romans was a sign for Christ’s followers to quit the area, which nearly all of them did.
