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.”

  1. No need to argue, just be patient to the construction of that temple and see whether those events will come to pass. . We once had 1844

    • Wow, a comment that proves absolutely nothing! Well, that’s not true, I guess. It proves that you apparently don’t know prophecy fulfillment.

  2. It is funny that no one mentions Math 24:15 where Jesus says that Daniel 9:26-27 now applies to the end of days. So deal with it that it does and correct this mess.

    • That is addressed in the Olivet Discourse Study series. http://theolivetdiscourse.com

      Messiah was pointing back to Daniel 9:26-27 declaring that the temple and city would be desolated, because they would reject Messiah and deliver Him up to be killed.

      It’s funny that people always cite Matthew 24:15, but fail to cite Luke 21:20, which gives us the definition of the Abomination of Desolation, an army surrounding the city of Jerusalem.

      And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. Luke 21:20-21

      The Jewish historian Josephus records that the first division of the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem in 66 A.D., and they were ready to take the city captive, when they suddenly left for no reason.

      Obviously the disciples and saints saw this sign, and they took this opportunity to flee to the mountains of Pella. But the Jews did not know or heed the sign, and they proclaimed that it was God protecting them, and they were emboldened and stayed.

      Then three divisions of the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem, which led to 1.1 million Jews dying from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion, and by the Roman sword.

      And we know that the temple that Messiah was talking about was desolated in 70 A.D.

      Daniel 12 describes the 1,290 days and 1,335 days; from 66-70 A.D., when the Jews were desolated, and true Israel (those who had a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son) were saved. http://theolivetdiscourse.com/daniel-12-is-not-about-an-end-times-antichrist/

    • The 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, when Messiah and His disciples confirmed with the Jews for 7 years that He was the promised Messiah who ratified the everlasting covenant as the Passover Lamb. Those who believed on Him were saved, those who rejected Him were lost and desolated by the Romans. http://70thweekofdaniel.com

      • Hi David. Although the idea of a rebuilding of the temple isn’t related to Daniel or Ezekiel’s prophecies, and clearly is a continued denial of the Christ, there evidently seems to be a movement to rebuild the 3rd Temple, even to the point that in 2015 a practice Passover slaughter was undertaken by the Temple Institute. It’s probably not news to you, but they have restored every tool and sacred object for a new temple including the menorah with 43 kilos of gold (https://www.templeinstitute.org/history-holy-temple-menorah-6.htm). What is your take on the relevance of these steps taken towards rebuilding if they don’t pertain to end time prophecy?



        • Hi Chris 🙂 The enemy created the deception about a future 70th week of Daniel, and part of that involves a temple for the supposed one-man antichrist to desecrate; so they are going to play it out to make it seem like rebuilding a temple is fulfilling Bible prophecy. It’s all just theater, to deceive people.

          • Well, it’s just part of the bigger deception about a pre-trib rapture, supposed future 70th week of Daniel, a one-man antichrist, that all of Revelation is yet to be fulfilled, etc., so that believers don’t understand prophecy fulfillment, and will be caught off guard by what happens, and by Messiah’s return. Yes, I’m sure that there’s going to be chaotic events going on, with WW III and the One World Government.

  3. All the prophecies of the redemption of Israel are in the past, as well as the second coming, rapture, resurrection of the dead and the last days.

    – The Third Temple in Israel of Antichrist and the End of the Church (Rothschild Agenda) –

    • No Frahnz, I am not saying that. I simply showed how the prophecies that most people assign to the future, to justify the Scriptural need for a rebuilt temple; have already been fulfilled.

      Misunderstanding of one of those prophecies may be leading you to believe that they are about Messiah’s return, but they are not.

      Each reference on the page has a link to a study that shows the historical fulfillment.

      • All these Zionist systems and their deceived supporters, bound to futuristic prophecies are the Antichrist. The biblical time of the construction of this temple is in the past, as explained by Daniel’s prophecy.

  4. You just passed right over Ezekiel 40 ignoring that the dimensions didn’t match the 2nd temple. so what is it with actual measurements if the temple is metaphysical????

    I agree a 3rd temple would be ridiculous.

    • Charles, I simply find no place for a physical temple to be built, so I don’t have the answer to the detailed measurements in Ezekiel 40. Can you please share how you see Ezekiel 40 being fulfilled?

      • The Temple dimensions are explained by Paul in Ephesians 3:18….. if the rod is The Word it measures the depth length breath and height of God’s Love.

  5. David in 2 Thes 2:1-4 is about future, you like it or not but that is the truth. In v3 you can read this statement “2Th 2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way, because the falling away is to come first,” falling away from what? Falling away from faith in God. Now, when the writer of 2 Thess wrote this statement, what was the state of the world regarding the faith in God of Israel? Few gentiles been practising Judaism and that’s all, right? The world was still in idolatry, having them faith in more than one god. How “falling away is to come first” in an world which believed in idolatry then? If we understand this then we have 2 options: 1. World will fall away from her faith in idolatry….or…2.This statement from 2 Thess 2 is talking about future when world in the most part will believe in God of Israel…. Now, if first option doesn’t sound to good then we got left only the second option which means the statement from 2 Thess 2:1-4 is talking about nothing else than a future when most of the world are sharing the same faith in God of Israel but for some reasons people will fall away from them faith.

    • Paul, here is study series proving that the falling away that the Apostle Paul warned about was fulfilled in the 4th century, when Roman Emperor Constantine created the Roman religion of Christianity, based on the Babylonian gods. After hundreds of years of persecution by the Roman Empire, many saints apostatized and fell away from Scriptural truth. This was before the Popes of Rome, the Son of Perdition, took power. Sadly, many Christians today still follow the teaching of Rome, not Scripture. http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/

  6. God has answered my prayers. I have studying, reading and praying on this topic over the last couple of weeks. This information completely confirms what I was beginning to understand. That the third temple is not a physical temple and that Daniel’s Prophesy had already been fulfilled. I know God led me to read this to let me know I was on the right track. With all that is to come, watching and seeing the evil and the fast past Satan has gained with creating the NWO, God is keeping my eyes open and revealing so much to those who seek HIS truth.

    • Thank you for your comment Julie! It makes my heart smile, for I write for people like you.

  7. Yes Brother. It will not be rebuilt. The Holy City will given over to the gentiles and trodden down 42 months. Gentile= non jew. Trodden= to walk in a specified manner. Specified = Identified clearly and definitely; state a fact or REQUIREMENT clearly and precisely; included in an ARCHITECTS OR ENGINEERS specifications. Two sticks will be one in his hand. This is the whole House of Israel brought to safety in the wilderness for 42 months. He said he will bring them all home in the later days. The 144,ooo will not let it be built. These are those who have been REDEEMED from the earth. Redeemed = compensate for faults or bad aspects of something; regain possession of something in exchange of payment. The 6th trumpet was blown. The dragon was cast down to earth, to make war with the saints, overcome them and kill them. 3 and half days they lay in the streets. The breath of life from God entered into them and they stood on feet. A great voice from Heaven says, “Come up here”…THIS IS THE RATURE FOR ALL SAINTS!!! Directly following this the 7th Angel sounds with the final Trump. “The Kingdoms of this,world have become the Kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ. Two sticks shall become one in his hand. Ezekiel 37 ” then he said prophecy unto the wind and say to wind thus saith the Lord God, breath upon these slain that they may live. So i prophesied as he commanded and the breath came into them, and they lived, AND STOOD UPON THEIR FEET AN EXCEEDING GREAT ARMY. He said to me, Son of Man, this is,the Whole House of Israel. Behold my people i will open your graves and put my spirit in you and you shall live and place you in your own land. Then you will know that YHWH has spoken it and has performed it. The 6th seal is soon to be opened amd those sealed with Gods name will have instructions and the true everlasting gospel. The will call Gods people out of Babylon back into the land for safetey on eagles wings for 42 months. Come out of her my people and receive not her plagues. If he calls us out he will have a safe place for us to go. Where? HOME..Israel…what is babylon? The whole world outside Israel. The pretribers and 3rd Temple folks will not believe any of this…Why? They did not take heed that no man deceive them. A little leaven ruins the whole lump. Doctrines of Men. We only follow the Lamb and what his WORD and voice tells us. They wont believe Gods witnesses because the have believed the lie that they will not be here. They are cowards. Cowards are listed first into the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8). They will follow the beast and stay in the world because they have not filled their lamps with oil and Truth. The 144,000: they are ONE FORE #4. They will repair the breech and restore all things in their 42 month mission. It will begin with True sabbath which is neither Saturday or SUNDAY. Gods Holy days can only be calculated from Gods calender which is is a 360 day cycle amd calculated from new moon to new moon. Listen to Ezekiel 36, 37, 47 rev 6, 7, 11, 12, 14..

    • I have never heard it told that way, wow!, great answer/statement. I am going to write it down so I can read it if someone ever ask about it.

  8. I am really confused. If you are saying the 70th week of Daniel ended in 70 A.D., what was the abomination of desolation? And what happened 42 months later to end Daniel’s 70th week according to Daniel 9:24. All those scriptures were fulfilled for the people of Daniel and the city of Jerusalem 42 months after the abomination of desolation? This really does not make any sense to me.

  9. Wow. I’m a new Christian 2 years in the making. I have learned so much and have been fortunate enough to have met the right people to point me in the right direction. Searching for the truth and found this site. So much deception in the world. So much true information on your site.
    Thank you

    • That is awesome that you became a believer 2 years ago! Sadly there are many deceptions being taught my Catholic, SDA and Protestant churches. Hopefully because you are new to the truth, you haven’t been too programmed with false prophecy fulfillment explanations. Contact me anytime with questions or insight about the studies. Blessings to you! David

  10. So David, ultimately you may have already answered all the information with regard to the last days elsewhere on your site but i was wondering, if everything has been fulfilled, what can the church look forward to here now with wickedness increasing, the pope meeting with the president, CERN about to open the dimension to darkness, etc…where does all this fit in to the book of Revelation? I know this is a lot in one question, but in general what is your take?

    • Thank you for your comment Diana 🙂 Well, not everything has been fulfilled yet. We are in the middle of the 6th bowl, waiting on WW III and the One World Government to be setup. The Pope is playing his part in pushing the world into their New World Order. I think that he will make a proclamation, a warning, and then after he leaves, the evil ones will cause great calamity, to make the Pope look like a prophet. I think that they will blame these events for a worldwide financial collapse. They are causing a rise in wickedness and weather calamities, to push their agenda of climate change, which they may use to take more control of the world. I’m not sure where CERN fits in. Maybe it’s used to amplify Satan’s powers on earth. Maybe it’s used to manipulate people’s minds.
