Debate Over Temple Mount Heats Up While Rebuilding Preparations Continue


(Joseph Candel) This conflict could be resolved, & it could happen with the Antichrist?s seven-year covenant. (Daniel 9:27) And because Jerusalem is the most holy city to the Jews, as well as the third most holy city to the Muslims (after Mecca and Medina), and also holy to Christians, it?s possible that the covenant will declare Jerusalem an international city and assure free and equal access and worship to people of all faiths. One widely held view is that the covenant will, in part, make it possible for the Jews to rebuild their Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem.

The rebuilding of the Temple is an important Endtime event because it is crucial to the fulfillment of other key Bible prophecies, some of which also involve the ancient Jewish practice of blood offerings, which can only be carried out in the Temple in Jerusalem. (Blood offerings ceased in 70 AD, when the Romans razed the last Temple.) Daniel 11:31; Matthew 24:15,21. Daniel 8:11


While the Israeli Knesset debated the future sovereignty of Jerusalem?s temple mount, protesters were rioting on the Holy Site. Rioters were arrested during the latest series of uprisings this month.  Arab demonstrators object to any Jewish presence on the holy site. An impassioned MK Fieglin declared, ?Without the temple Mount, we have no home, not in Tel Aviv, not in Haifa, and not anywhere else. The time has come to stop the erosion of our sovereignty in the heart of Jerusalem.?

Fieglin continued by describing the destruction of archeological artifacts on the Mount, stating that behind the nations back, we gave up every remnant of Israeli sovereignty on the mount. Any terrorist organization can wave their fag, but the Israeli flag? Unmentionable. ?When the Jews in exile prayed to return to Zion, I think they prayed to return? to the Temple Mount. If we allow the situation to continue, we will fail in our mission to Jewish continuity.? Added coalition chairman Yariv Levin.

Left leaning MK?s see the Temple Mount controversy as a ?powder keg waiting to explode? said Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On. Gal-on also stated that ?No one doubts that the Jews have a right to ascend the temple Mount? but questioned the wisdom of exercising this right. PM Benyamin Netanyahu was quoted as saying in 1995, ?Jews should be able to pray on the temple Mount.? He was absent from the current debate.

MK Moalem-Refeali spoke of the hypocrisy of some on the left who? believe in freedom of worship, but only for Arabs. As expected, the Knesset debate sparked angry reactions in Jordan and elsewhere in the region. Some Jordanian legislators called for a cancellation of Jordan?s peace treaty with Israel and a return of the Jordanian envoy to Amman.

The Temple Mount, captured by the IDF during the Six Day War, was placed under custodianship of the Wakf Muslim religious trust in 1967, following the war. As for a possible shared Temple Mount solution, in  a Haaretz report as late as February 16, 2014 Palestinian President Abbas stated that the ?PA would not agree to share sovereignty over the Al-Aqsa Mosque (the temple mount) in Jerusalem as  part of a peace deal but would allow freedom of worship for the Jews at the Western Wall Plaza.?

On November 28, 2013, the Israel National News reported that “a Cohen ? priest training program” is currently training priest to officiate in the coming Temple with at least 40 men with the correct lineage being trained in this program. According to Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the Director of the Temple Institute ?Traditional priestly garments have been made in various sizes to accommodate the trained priests.?

Rabbi Ariel concluded by saying “All of this is in the hope that we will soon, please GOD, erect the third temple with our own hands, and be able to perform these priestly duties in the Temple courtyard”.

According to the Christian Post, ?rabbis have been visiting the temple mount in unprecedented numbers?. It is also reported that the temple items required for sacrifice and worship, and the hand hewn cornerstone have been prepared and are in fact, ready to be used. Of interest also, is the shift in the Israeli government toward a more right leaning, religious, and conservative base.  This also, bodes well for the rebuilding. A recent survey revealed that 64 % of the population favors rebuilding the temple.

Many wonder if the current peace negotiations will open the door for further progress towards the rebuilding of the Temple.

  1. Heres a description of Solomon’s throne from 2 Chronicles 9 : 17 Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with pure gold.

    18 And there were six steps to the throne, with a footstool of gold, which were fastened to the throne, and stays on each side of the sitting place, and two lions standing by the stays:

    19 And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps. There was not the like made in any kingdom.

    As it reads – “There was not the like made in any kingdom.

    The man of sin will one day sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is god.

    The dragon gives him his seat, his power, and great authority.

    Eventually the seat (throne) of the beast (antichrist) ends up in darkness.

    This seat (throne) is clearly a major feature of the temple.

    Protocol No 21 talks about ascending to the throne of the world.

    You find yourself wondering as to just where Solomon’s throne is, and as to whether they have it tucked away some place or not.

    Solomon’s throne was once the throne of all thrones – So who knows if they will pull this out along with all kinds of other surprises, and if they have got it tucked away some place, then where else could it possibly belong but in the Jewish temple.

    1. quite interesting as they have been digging under temple for quite a while. So who knows who’ll or what they pull out. The main thing is violence won”t be a issue as whoever brings in the covenant will bring it in peacefully. Perhaps Prince Charles as he declares he has a lineage that goes all the way back to Jesus and King David. I watched a presentation he did couple years ago where he was hologram. The image of the beast?? Whatever happened to Diana? Was he involved??

      1. There is one sure fact that stands out, that fact being that all roads lead to the temple. The ultimate in all of mans endeavours will result in a complete reverse of everything that should be.

        Observe the Symbolic Snake of Judaism.

        Protocol III opens with a reference to the Symbolic Snake of Judaism. In his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols, Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol:

        “According to the records of secret Jewish Zionism, Solomon and other Jewish learned men already, in 929 B.C., thought out a scheme in theory for a peaceful conquest of the whole universe by Zion. As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men who were subsequently initiated in this question. These learned men decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for Zion with the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those who have been initiated into the plans of the Jewish administration, and the body of the Snake to represent the Jewish people – the administration was always kept secret, EVEN FROM THE JEWISH NATION ITSELF. As this Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered it undermined and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these States. It is foretold that the Snake has still to finish its work, strictly adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to Zion and until, by this means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled it – and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue the other countries by an ECONOMICAL CONQUEST. The return of the head of the Snake to Zion can only be accomplished after the power of all the Sovereign of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere, there shall have been brought about a spiritual demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance of Jewish women masquerading as French, Italians, etc.. These are the surest spreaders of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations. A map of the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows: – Its first stage in Europe was in 429 B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of Pericles, the Snake first started eating into the power of that country. The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69 B.C.. The third in Madrid in the time of Charles V, in A.D. 1552. The fourth in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date of 1881. [This “Snake” is now being drawn through the Americas and in the United States of America, it has been partially identified as the “Council on Foreign Relations” (C.F.R.) and the “Trilateral Commission”]. All these States which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic conditions, England and Germany are spared, but only till the conquest of Russia is accomplished by the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated. The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kieft and Odessa. It is now well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the centres of the militant Jewish race. Constantinople is shown as the last stage of the Snake’s course before it reaches Jerusalem. (This map was drawn years before the occurrence of the “Young Turk” – i.e., Jewish – Revolution in Turkey).

        1. Can’t say the above is all balance and order, but can say that Jesus said – When ye shall see the abomination of desolation standing in the place (temple in Jerusalem) where it out not, then shall be great tribulation. (the reverse of what God would have wanted for us all.)

          Stay strong = Love in Jesus.
