A Third Rebuilt Temple In Jerusalem Is Not Biblical

This End Times Deceptions Bible study will show that there is no Scriptural need for a rebuilt 3rd temple in Jerusalem.

Prophecy teachers refer to these passages to justify their explanation of a future 3rd temple in Jerusalem.

And since these deceptions are from the enemy, they create events in Israel to make it seem like they are going to build a 3rd temple, and they very well might.

But the Bible passages that these teachers are referring to have nothing to do with the end times or a third temple in Jerusalem.

Daniel 9

Futurists claim that Daniel 9:26-27 foretells an end times antichrist who will make a 7-year peace treaty with Israel, the 70th week of Daniel.

The peace agreement would supposedly allow the temple sacrifices to take place.  And after 3 1/2 years, the antichrist will supposedly desecrate the temple, to start 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation.

But the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week.  Go figure! 😛

The ‘covenant‘ is not an end times peace agreement with the modern state of Israel, it is Jesus Everlasting New Covenant, which was offered to the Jews first, for seven years.   Here is a Bible study that proves that it was Jesus New Covenant.

And the “people of the prince” is not referring to an end times antichrist, but it was fulfilled by Roman Prince Titus, who desolated Jerusalem and the temple and the Jews, in 70 A.D

Here is a Bible study that proves that it was Prince Titus.

Here is a study that shows the fulfillment of Daniel 12, the Abomination of Desolation, and the fulfillment of the 1,290 and 1335 days of great tribulation in Judea.

The 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy only speaks about the rebuilding of the second temple, and never speaks about a third temple.

It speaks about the coming Messiah, and never speaks about an end times antichrist.

It gives a 70 week time frame and never speaks about a 1,987+ year time gap in between the 69th and 70th week.

Inserting those things into the prophecy is an abuse of  Scripture, as they are out of context with God’s Word.

The concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel and one-man antichrist, is the creation of the Jesuits in the 16th century; as they sought to deflect blame about from the Roman Catholic Church as the Antichrist beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel, and the office of the Papacy, the Son of Perdition.

2 Thessalonians 2

Futurists claim that in 2 Thessalonians 2 Paul is speaking about an end times antichrist who will sit in the temple in Jerusalem and proclaim to be God.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 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.”

So what does Paul mean?

Keep in mind that when the Apostle Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, the Jewish temple was still standing, as it wasn’t destroyed by the Romans until 70 A.D., so any reference to a physical temple would have been to that temple, not an end times temple.

To understand that, let’s look at how Jesus defined the word “temple.”

In John 2:14, Jesus spoke of the physical temple. The Greek word for the physical temple is hieron.

And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business.”

Then just five verses later in John 2:19-20, Jesus spoke of the spiritual temple. The Greek word for the spiritual temple is naos.

Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” But He was speaking of the temple of His body.”

Whenever Paul used the word naos, he applied it to followers of Jesus, the Christian Church, which is a literal temple, but not a physical building.

Paul is saying that the Son of Perdition would sit in the temple of God, that is, in the midst of the Christian church.

Instead of being an infidel who doesn’t believe in God, like so many pastors teach, the Antichrist does not reign outside of the Church, but in the very bosom of the Church.

Paul places the Son of Perdition nowhere else than in the very sanctuary of God.

The Pope sits (assumes a position of authority) as God in the temple of God,  proclaiming to be the leader of all Christians.

The Pope is called the ‘Vicar of Christ’ which means ‘substitute for Christ.’

He proclaims to forgive sins.

He proclaims that salvation is only available through the Roman Catholic Church.

He preaches a message of ‘salvation by works’, instead of through the blood of Jesus.

Here is a Bible study that proves the meaning of the temple in 2 Thessalonians 2.

Revelation 11

Futurists claim that John is speaking about a physical temple, when he says to measure the temple, and to designate the gentiles into the outer court.

 “Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple (naos) of God, the altar, and those who worship there.” Revelation 11:1

The ‘reed like a measuring rod’ is the Word of God, the Little Book of Revelation 10.

The Greek for reed or rod is “kanon” = canon of holy scriptures. Kanon is also translated as rule, or measuring rod.

God was telling Martin Luther, a Catholic monk, to use the Word of God to determine who was the true church, the Temple of God; and who was the false church.

When Martin Luther and others measured the teachings of the Catholic Church against the Word of God, they were able to see that it is the false church.

Here is a Bible study that explains the fulfillment of Revelation 11 and the Two Witnesses.

Ezekiel 40

The temple that Ezekiel envisioned has been fulfilled in the true temple of God, one that is not made with human hands.

God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.” Acts 17:24

Paul told us that we are the temple of God.

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 corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined 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.” Ephesians 2:19-22

“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.” 1 Corinthians 3:17

“And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them.I will be their God,And they shall be My people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16

John drives the point home when Jesus proclaims that people who overcome will be a pillar in the temple of God.

He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.” Revelation 3:12

An end times rebuilt Jewish temple with bloody sacrifices would be blasphemous.

Jesus is our High Priest whose blood atoned for all of our sins by His sacrifice.

If they ever do rebuild a temple in Jerusalem and restart bloody sacrifices, it will be a denial of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and a blasphemy to God.

Such a temple could never be called “the temple of God.”

Mark 16:5-20

5And having entered into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right, wearing a white robe, and they were greatly amazed.6And he said to them, “Do not be much astonished. You seek YAHUAH of Natsarith, who was impaled. He was raised – He is not here! See the place where they laid Him. 7And go, say to His talmidim, and Kefa, that He is going before you into Galil. You shall see Him there as He said to you.” 8And they went out and ran from the tomb, and were trembling and bewildered. And they spoke to no one, for they were fearful. 9And resurrecting earlier on the first of the Shabaths, He appeared initially to Miryam from Magdala, from whom He had cast out 7 demons. 10She went and reported to those who had been with Him, mourning and weeping. 11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe. 12And after this He appeared in another form to 2 of them as they walked and travelled to a village. 13And they went and reported it to the rest, but they did not believe them either. 14Later He appeared to the 11 as they sat at the table. And He reproached their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He was raised. 15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the besorah to every creature. 16He who has believed and has been immersed, shall be delivered , but he who has not believed shall be condemned. 17And these signs shall accompany the ones who believe: In My Name they shall cast out demons, they shall speak with renewed tongues, 18they shall take away serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison it shall by no means hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall get well.” 19Then indeed, after the Master had spoken to them, He was received up into the heaven , and sat down at the right hand of YAHUAH. 20And they went out and proclaimed it everywhere, while the Master worked with them, and confirmed the word through the accompanying signs. Be it so YAHUAH!!

You need to be immersed in the name of YAHUAH forgiveness of sins!! With the blood of YAHUAH MASHYACH there is remission of sins!!!
Acts 2:21, 2:38, 22:14
Praise YAHUAH!!!

Annette, This seems logical as you say:
“I totally agree that yahshua taught that when we receive him we are the temple and that the Holy Spirit lives within us. That he was the Holy sacrificial lamb and by his blood we are washed clean. When we believe that we have the Holy Spirit we do not have to worry about translation he speaks to us from within and gives us understanding and discernment of what is to come. That we are to fear nothing because we’re under his power and jurisdiction. There are two sets of rules the ones who follow Yeshua and the ones who follow the ways of the world.”

The revelation of the rebuilding of the temple will definitely come to pass just as it is spoken of in the Bible or Torah. Reason being…
The majority of Jews clearly did not recognize Jesus as THEIR Messiah, and had him put to death. They did not recognize him as the Holy Lamb. They are still searching for their Messiah to come. They will build the temple as spoken in the Bible and start their sacrifices just as there Torah tells them to do so. The Antichrist will set in that Temple and Proclaim himself to be God. And many will be deceived. Not just the Jews but many Catholic Christians.
If it truly is the Pope that will sit on the throne the Catholics will raise him up after all they are ready call him the Holy Father. I totally agree that yahshua taught that when we receive him we are the temple and that the Holy Spirit lives within us. That he was the Holy sacrificial lamb and by his blood we are washed clean. When we believe that we have the Holy Spirit we do not have to worry about translation he speaks to us from within and gives us understanding and discernment of what is to come. That we are to fear nothing because we’re under his power and jurisdiction. There are two sets of rules the ones who follow Yeshua and the ones who follow the ways of the world.

Annette, the second temple was still standing when Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians 2. He was not referring to a physical temple in which the Son of Perdition would proclaim to be God. He was referring to the body of Christ, the true temple of God. The Pope pretends to be a part of the body of Christ, thus he sits in the temple. The Popes have already proclaimed to be God.

Pope Innocent III declared “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.”

Pope Pius V blasphemed that “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.”

Pope John Paul II said “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins: come to me.”
