‘But when ye shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, let (him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains.’ -Mark 13:14
The purpose of this study is to highlight several key and unique time and date properties of the ‘Abomination of Desolations’ spoken about in the Bible regarding the Temple of YHVH. These are the destruction that took place during the periods of the 1st and 2nd Temples of YHVH in Israel. This location in Jerusalem specifically is on what is referred today as the Temple Mount. The sequence of the date and times recorded in history of such prior Desolations could perhaps suggest a time period in the near future of the last one that is foretold to occur. This future time period based on prior date periods could help in determining where and when the 3rd Temple is to be built on the Temple Mount and when the coming Abomination of Desolation spoken by the Prophet Daniel and reiterated by Jesus will occur.
According to some interpretations of the Bible, this subsequent 3rd Temple will likewise suffer the same fate of a desolation and perhaps an all-out destruction, of a yet future Desolation as it occurred to the prior 2 Temples. This study takes the prophetic position that a literal 3rd Temple is to be rebuilt. The Bible speaks of a prophetic future ‘Desolation’ that a false Messianic figure the nation of Israel will accept, will eventually bring to the 3rd Temple. He will convince national Israel that he is the long-awaited and true Messiah. At a certain ‘midpoint’, he will defile the Temple by ‘sitting’ in the Holy of Holies. This was referred to by Jesus Christ as being the ‘Abomination of Desolations’ that was revealed by the Prophet Daniel perhaps involving the very Ark of the Covenant … ’so that he as god sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God’ according to 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
This interpretation thus necessitates a literal 3rd Temple that will have to be built. This accretion is according to how some interpret the book of Daniel and Revelation; that the 3rd Temple will once again pertain to a time period where the Jewish nation will have the stewardship of a physical Temple after the Rapture of true Christians from the Earth as some interpret End Times events. This assumption should not be confused with the ‘spiritual’ components that currently makes-up the ‘Temple of God’ as in the Body of Christ that the Apostle Paul teaches in the New Testament. This specifically pertains to the current Church Age that some say is about to end before or at this convergence of the time period in question. The specific time period is from 2018 forward with special emphases on 2018 as it is the 70th year anniversary of Israel’s independence.
The Tetrad Factor
The theory of when the possible time period for the 3rd Temple is to be built is based only on certain mathematical probabilities based on prior Temple date patterns. The patterns presented will incorporate a phi ratio and pi coefficients and subject to speculation. Other evidence to support this theory and speculation that the 3rd Temple might be built or soon thereafter around the year 2018 is based on several numerical and astronomical ’patterns’ of when Solomon’s and Herod’s Temples were destroyed. These 2 monumental key dates of when the 2 prior Temples were destroyed happen to also fall on the same Jewish calendar on the 9th of Av. The primary pattern looked at for this theory is that of a ’70-year’ period of time directly related to the prior Temples.
Each of these ’70-year’ periods were directly associated with a Temple period, following either before or after their Desolation or destruction. Perhaps this same numerical sequence, that happen to reoccur in patterns can establish the 3rd 70-year and 7-year pattern that has been associated with the previous Temples. There are also other numerical calculations that will be presented that bring up specific year and date associations based on purely mathematical number computations. One such year or number of a year is 586 years. It is not the intent of this study or theory to fix a date for when the 3rd Temple is to be built.
This study and timeline strongly suggests that given the prior time and date sequences of prior Temple periods, the patterns present a very unique convergence to a specific time period of 70 years. There was a 70-year period leading up to 586 BC with the 1st Temple was built by Solomon, mainly that King David died on the 70th year. Then in 70 AD, the 2nd Temple was destroyed. Then from 1948, when the State of Israel was ‘reborn’ in a day, 70 years out will be 2018. Thus, could such a 70-year pattern have a significant and prophetic implication to how close the building of the 3rd Temple is to be? One key evidence that suggests this time period from 2018 as highly significant, has to do with the Tetrads since 1949. As it has been presented, a Tetrad is when you have 4 consecutive Blood Moons. It is particularly significant that Israel became a UN Member sovereign State on November 5, 1949, just 29 days after one of the Tetrad’s Blood Moon occurred on the Feast of Sukkot October 7, 1949.
A Tetrad Blood Moon again occurred during the Passover season of 1967, precisely on April 24, 1967, just 44 days from June 7, 1967. This is when the Temple Mount was recaptured by the Israeli Defense Force IDF for the first time since 70 Ad. As the Tetrad of 2014-15, their pattern and recent frequency strongly supports the notion that within a 3-4-year range after will be very prophetic for the Nation of Israel and perhaps the 3rd Temple. More specifically then, a prophetic event could likewise occur little after the Tetrads has concluded as it was the case before the Blood Moons in 1949-50 and during the one in 1967-8. This is speculated based on a ‘Before-During-After’ pattern. This would mean that shortly after 2018, one could possibly see the beginnings of the decree to build the 3rd Temple. What is more significant about 2018 is that it will be the ‘midst’ of the 2 Central Blood Moons from 2011 to 2018 that span a perfect 7-Year period. Perhaps, this is a run-up or a prelude to the coming 7-year Tribulation Period.
The 2018 Year Factor
Thus the coming celestial ‘signs’ point to 2018 as being accented celestially, at least in terms of just how profound this year will become to the prophetic time-clock of YHVH for national Israel and perhaps a 3rd Temple. Another celestial marker leading up to the 3rd Temple could have been Comet ISON. It was said that this particular comet was the brightest comet known to Mankind so far. The comet was able to be seen by the naked eye around November 2013. What is profound is that in AD 66, Comet Halley was observed or Jerusalem. It was seen as an omen of doom as just 3.5 years later in AD 70 the 2nd Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av. As noted, from 70 AD, one obtains 1948 years to 2018. Secondly, also in November 2013, the extremely rare solar Hybrid eclipse occurred. These 2 ‘heavenly signs’ perhaps might well have been the prelude to the start of what seems to be the inevitable decree to rebuild the 3rd Temple.
All together, these celestial benchmarks or ‘signs’ as some would prefer to call them, seem to bare perhaps a prophetic ‘witness’ of a convergence to the time period in question soon after 2018. Perhaps this is an 'announcement' of the time period that the 3rd Temple might be decreed to be rebuild. Also, many believe that it will have to do with the Jubilee Year that calculated to Yom Kippur in 2015. The Jubilee is said to be in 2017-18 by others. Also, the year 2016 was the year that happened to be the ‘Year of Light’ or 5776’ that many in the esoteric world claim is when the ‘capstone’ will complete the ‘pyramid’ of the All-Seeing Eye’. Perhaps 2016 will be when the Temple preparations were completely done and the preparation for the disclosure of the AntiChrist has been secured behind the seems and read to be revealed once the Rapture of the Bride of Christ occurs.
1) 1948-1949 Israel is restored as Nation for the first time since 70 AD after WW2 (Land)
2) 1967-1968 Old Jerusalem is recaptured and unified under Jewish control (City)
3) 2014-2015 Perhaps as all the instruments of the House of God are ready (Temple?)
If the 3rd Temple is to be built soon after 2018, or soon thereafter based on the evidence of the prior patterns already considered, then it will coincide with the Tetrad pattern 1948 and 1967 that are in phi ratio of time with each other. This Tetrad pattern also lines up with a perfect phi ration proportion in terms of time. On an aside note, it so happens that there will be 7 x 360 days from Feast of Trumpets on September 14, 2015 to Tisha B'Av on Aug 7, 2022. Another possible key prophetic time-marker might be the year 2018 itself. This particular year appears to also be a time-marker for several reasons.
What is significant about 2018 is that 2018 is 50 years from the 1967-68 Tetrad and 70 years from the Tetrad of 1949-50. There will also be a Blood Moon on Tu B’Av or July 27th in 2018. This Blood Moon is referred to as a ‘Central Lunar Eclipse’ or Bull’s-eye Blood Moon. They are referred to as ‘Bull’s-eye’ because during the eclipse, the shadow cast by the Earth on the Moon hits the Moon dead center, not to a side or partially covering the Moon. It is as though YHVH has put a big red marked ‘bulls-eye’ circle to be very explicit of just how sharp and focused this particular date is as it lines up directly with Jerusalem even.
Is it mere ‘coincidence’ that the Blood Moon will be directly in line with Jerusalem at this place and timer? This Bull’s-eye Blood Moon had its counterpart back in June 15th of 2011 that likewise was a ‘Central Lunar Eclipse’ or a ‘Bull’s-eye Blood Moon’ and was also directly in line with Jerusalem. What is astonishing is that from June 2011 to July 2018 these 2 Blood Moons compose exactly a 7-year period. The year 2018 would thus constitute a prophetic milestone of some sort. If the theory holds, then this 7-year period is signaling that indeed the Abomination of Desolation that is to come will be in the ‘midst’ of a probable 7-year period of time per the books of Daniel and Revelation. The year 2015 was when the 2nd half of the Tetrad’s 2 Blood Moons occur. If the pattern follows, then 3.5 years later on in 2018 is when the pattern of the ‘Before-During-After’ concludes or is fulfilled.
Could this be the convergence of when the AntiChrist is revealed and orders the Daily Sacrifices at the 3rd Temple to begin? To reiterate, based on the number counts from 1947 and the Tetrads of 1949, 1967 and 2015, the year 2018 could be the prelude. Once the 7-year ‘confirming’ of the Covenant is made, that will initiate the Tribulation Period. Then at the ‘mid-point’ is when the AntiChrist will cease the Daily Sacrifices of the 3rd Temple. He will then proclaim himself ‘god’ as he sits on the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies. It will be from that point on that he will demand worship from the Jews and the world, for that matter. He thereafter will seek to persecute the Jews and those Christians converted after the Rapture of the Church. It will be a time when national Israel will realize that this AntiChrist figure was and is the false Messiah and the Remnant of Israel will flee to Petra.
This possible future 7-year time period scenario that could be associated with a 3rd Temple could be set off by a war, an armistice, a ‘land for peace’ or swap for the recognition of Palestine as a sovereign state, for example. Nonetheless, this study attempts to only illustrate that there are peculiar date and number associations that keep reoccurring that are associated with past destructions of YHVH’s Temples. There is a singular corresponding time piece pattern of a 70-year period and a 7-year period that is interwoven in the very timeline of prior Temple ‘desolations. What the theory presented seeks to test is whether the last or 3rd ’70-Year’ and last ‘7-year’ periods will culminate in 2018 or is somehow associated with it.
This could very well be the case –if you use ‘the year 1948’ from Israel’s establishment as a nation and add 1948 years from AD 70 when the 2nd -70-year’ period that culminated in the destruction of the 2nd Temple. What the chart also attempts to show is that by incorporating the mathematical phi ratio onto the timeline since 70 AD, it makes for some interesting numerical recurrences or patterns that seem to repeat during the convergence of space and time leading up to the timeframe of 2018. If and when one will do a study on the 1st Temple, most often referred to as Solomon’s Temple, one will find fairly quickly that the research is not clear as to when the construction of the Temple was first started. One will find alternate and competing start dates ranging from 833 BC, 965 BC, 970 BC and on and on. What is commonly accepted and agreed upon without much dispute is the date in which the 1st Temple was destroyed.
Prophetic Date Markers
As to the 1st temple, there are 2 dates primarily used for this study that are very reliable. Thus, the date has to do with the total destruction of Solomon’s Temple is 586 BC. The next reliable and academically agreed upon date is when Herod’s Temple was destroyed, in 70 AD. From these 2 established dates, the theory presented in this study seeks to only test by the extrapolation of these 2 prior dates, a 3rd date that can be ascertained to predict the possible timing of the 3rd Temple to be built. This is done by incorporating a phi ratio and pi coefficient to these key and verifiable dates on the timeline. The first variable used for this study will be pi. The pi π variable will be taken from the research and work of the late David Flynn in establishing the dedication day of the 1st Temple as being 962 BC.
1) Date #1: 586 BC the time the 2nd Temple, Solomon’s was destroyed
(a 70-Year lull between Temples)
2) Date #2: AD 70 the time the 2nd Temple, Herod’s was destroyed
3) Date #3: 2014-2018 the time the 3rd Temple is defiled? (AD 70 + 1948 Years = 2018)
Emphasis on 2018+Event dealing with construction of the 3rd Temple
The 962 BC date has been chosen instead for this study over the more speculative dates presented by many other interests. The reason being is that it has been proven to have a corresponding mathematical principle associated to it. This numerical coefficient would make this date a perfect pi ratio in terms of mathematical configuration related to the Great Pyramids of Giza according to Flynn. Some researchers have actually provided correlations taken from Isaiah 19 that present the Great Pyramid as a type of or model after the House of YHVH in terms of dimension and proportion. The second variable used for this study will be based on the phi ratio.
The specific numerical value that will be used is ‘1948’. This date will incorporate the factor of ‘1948’ as a year and numerical value that will have a phi Φ ratio ascribed to it. The numerical factor of 1948 is used as the template because it corresponds to the year Israel declared its sovereignty as a re-born nation on May 14, 1948. With this in mind, the theory and speculation involve the testing of the 3rd 70-year time period that culminates and is calculated to be on 2018. The patterns will be examined to see if the 3rd ’70-year’ pattern that occurs when 1948 years are added from 70 AD, when the 2nd Temple was destroyed, corresponds to the year 2018. The year 2018 is also 70 years from 1948.
Further, if you add a 50-Year period from when the 2nd Tetrad occurred in 1967, one gets 2018. Already, 2018 has also the poignant Bull’s Eye Blood Moon over Jerusalem as if to exclaim its significance and perhaps very prophetic event to occur. What is also striking is the establishing the phi ratio proportions onto the timeline from the 2nd major date benchmark of 70 AD. Based on this mathematical pattern, the 70-year Babylonian Captivity between the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in 586 BC to the beginning of the construction in 515 BC of Zerubbabel’s Temple was ‘in the midst’ of the phi ratio of the 1204 years.
The 3rd variable considered for this study is the 9th of Av occurrences. This notorious date in the Jewish calendar is when the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed. Perhaps this will be corresponding date as well when the Bowl Judgments begin to be poured out directly onto the Kingdom of the AntiChrist that will be centered on the Temple Mounts’ 3rd Temple. ‘The 5th Angel poured out his bowl on the Throne of the Beast, and its Kingdom was plunged into darkness.’ -Revelation 16:10
1st Temple destroyed: 9th of Av 586 BC
2nd Temple destroyed: 9th of Av AD 70
3rd Temple desolated?: 9th of Av 20xx?
As one sees prophetic events coming sharper into focus with eclipses, comets, Tetrads, etc., one can ascertain that all these Signs are leading up to what is to take place soon after the year 2018, which will be prophetically profound. In the year 2018, there will be exactly 1,948 years now that the Jewish people have not had a Temple service or stewardship since 70 AD. This stewardship of the Temple was and will be prescribed by YHVH to be a ‘House of Worship’ for the one and only true GOD, Creator of the universe and Mankind. Coincidentally, it was in 1948 after World War 2 ended that Israel came back to life from near attempts at genocide and mass extermination of its race.
It was out of the Nazi Holocaust experience that multitudes, as never before went back in droves to the Promised Land. Ezekiel 37 described Israel’s condition to that of the ‘Valley of Dry Bones’ where thereafter, Israel was to become a mighty Nation and Army (IDF) and has. According to the Bible, the House of YHVH, which is a facsimile of the actual one in Heaven, can only be located and built on the Temple Mount that is in Jerusalem where the prior 2 House of YHVH’s Temples once stood.
Yet today that piece of land that encompasses the Temple Mount in Jerusalem for the Jews represents the apex of their current struggle with their GOD, faith, and identity. Many religious Jews still pray for the need of and lack of their Temple. Until the 3rd Temple is built, Judaism is sort of not validated because of this missing connection to the Temple. Along with the Temple, the Ark of the Covenant also associated with the 3rd Temple needs to be unveiled because it is only then that this majestic article will necessitate of a Temple to house it.
‘For the Israelites will live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred stones, without ephod or household gods.’ – Hosea 3:4
This quest for the ‘religious’ demand of a Temple, at some tipping point will turn into a political mandate that has to accommodate the 3rd Temple in order to give the state of Israel ‘legitimacy’ in a sense also. What better ancient and historical artifact than the actual Ark of the Covenant that Moses had constructed to be made manifest by the false Messiah national Israel will accept. And what better person than Moses himself to return and witness against Israel for entering into such a ‘Covenant with Death’ the Bible foretells will happen. As some interpret the Bible, Moses will return as 1 of the 2 Witnesses to deal with Israel as he had in the time of the wilderness journey.
The Temple Mount
Seemingly, Israel today finds itself in the same spiritual condition in terms of its rebellion and rejection of YHVH’s true Messiah, Jesus Christ, since 32 AD, some 1986 years ago from 2018. Thus, it is why perhaps YHVH will still commission Moses as one of the 2 Witnesses to be employed as this agent for Israel’s reconciliation. Moses had done that in the past and is well aware of the hard heart condition and mental disposition of the Jewish nation. What is at stake for the Jewish nation and the rest of Humanity, according to the books of Daniel and Revelation is the unfinished business of Israel’s reconciliation. This issue is still to be resolved between YHVH and his Earthly People the Jews and the judgment of YVH upon the Nations of the world for their treatment of Israel since Israel entered the Promised Land.
Perhaps one may see this in one’s very own lifetime unfold, especially if the Celestial Signs and prior Temple desolations are any indication of the time we are about to enter into prophetically, mainly the periods from 2018 and onward. Currently, the Temple Mount houses 1 mosque and 1 shrine which according to Islamic tradition, is the 3rd holiest site next to Mecca and Medina for Muslims. Because of this, there has been a struggle of faiths, between the Muslims and the Jews over this territory. This constant struggle has involved religious fervor, hate and violence on both sides over the Temple Mount –among other disputed issues between them. Many who study Biblical prophecy and End Times see that this struggle is foremost religious and well be the trigger that leads to World War 3. Ironically, the Temple Mount –although captured during the 6-Day War in 1967 was given over to the administration of the Jerusalem Muslim Waqf.
As a ‘good will’ political gesture, after the 6-Day War of 1967, the decision was made by the Israeli government to only allow the Waqf the administration of the Temple Mount. It was agreed upon and certain prescriptions were stipulated; that of avoiding any desecration of the Temple Mount and provide freedom of access to all religious groups. This has not been the practice by the Waqf since 1967. Over the recent decades, there has been documented evidence of massive desecration or ‘Desolations’, going on by the Muslims to deface and erase any remnants of a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount under the guise of ‘renovation’ projects. Technically, Israel has total sovereignty over the Temple Mount, but it is the King of Jordan that has political rights. Based on the treaty of 1967, Jordan still has a legal right to it as well, so it is rather complicated.
Israel is a ‘secular state’ that sees this religious issue of a 3rd Temple very problematic in terms of geo-politics and its Muslim enemies. Although freedom of access has been the law in theory, in practice the secular Israeli government currently enforces the ban on non-Muslim prayer on the site as a ‘security measure’. Often times, Israeli Police have to escort Jews and Christians on tours. Any non-Muslims who are observed praying on the Temple Mount are often expelled and escorted out. The rationale behind this current policy and practice by the Israeli government is that there is fear of Muslim rioting or Intifadas -as they have occurred in the past. As the volatility of the political, social, religious, and economic conditions are ever-changing in the Middle East; the prophetic clock is ticking away and will come to a head.
This in turn at some point will force Israel’s secular government to have to deal directly with the issue of a 3rd House of GOD on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. When this happens, Israel will become the center of the LORD’s prophetic epicenter to the countdown to Armageddon and beyond. Incidentally, so too will the New World Order and the coming AntiChrist, for that matter, seek to eclipse the LORD’s plan for the House of the LORD. This will be done with the help and work of the religious ‘False Prophet’, whoever he might be through deceit, lying wonders and deception. This coming false Messiah will even causing ‘Fire’ to come down from the sky as describe in the Bible.
Israel will once again be led into the ‘valley of decision’ as in the days of Elijah when he caused ‘fire’ to come down in full view of Israel as an admonition to not have a wavering and unbelieving heart toward the LORD. Perhaps even the Prophet Elijah will be the other “Witness’ for Israel during this time. The tradition of the Jews demand this before the Messiah can be accepted by them. The difference is that then, the Jewish nation ‘chose’ the LORD, at least in word. The decision will not be the same for national Israel during this coming time of 2015-2022; they will ‘accept’ the ‘false Christ’ as their Messiah as Jesus Christ even foretold this would happen. ‘I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.’ – John 5:43
To reiterate, this study and accompanied chart presented are only suggestive given the prior patterns that involve the 1st and 2nd Temples of Israel. As the demand for a 3rd Temple once again by the Jewish Nation is ever increasing, it so happens that numerically and astronomically, there are several phenomena that are converging on a period of time like no other based on the Tetrad of 2014-2015. This specific period of time involves the years from 2015-2022 with an emphasis on 2015 and 2018. If the precedence of the prior desolations or destructions of the Jewish Temples are any indication of what is to come, then prophetically, the Jewish Nation will soon be at the fulcrum of a monumental prophetic time as it directly relates to the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple. Listed below are just some correlations of how certain numbers and year dates keep reoccurring or are associated to the prior Temple desolations or destructions.
A 7-7-7, a 7 & 70-Year Numerical Value
Starting from King Solomon, there was a total of 21 Kings in Judah.
This is a (7 x 3) or a 7-7-7 pattern.
1ST TEMPLE: 969 BC to 962 BC, a 7-Year Period to build the Temple
2ND TEMPLE: AD 63 to AD 70, a 7-Year Period culminating just before destruction of Temple
3RD TEMPLE? AD 2015 to AD 2022, a 7-Year Period?
With 2018 being the mid-point?
1st Temple - Destroyed at Beginning of 70-Year Period
2nd Temple - Destroyed at End of 70-Year Period
3rd Temple - Desolation at Midst of a 7-Year Period?
If one adds Solomon’s Temple when it began in 969 BC to its destruction in 586 BC, the result will be 383 years. Then if one adds 383 years to the duration of 2nd Temple, Zerubbabel’s from 515 BC to 70 AD one gets 586 years. If one adds 515 BC, the time Zerubbabel's Temple was finished to 70 AD years, the time the 2nd Temple was destroyed, one gets 586 years. This calculus gives the exact year Solomon’s Temple was destroyed. If one takes the year 586 BC, the time Solomon’s Temple was destroyed minus 515 BC years when Zerubbabel’s Temple was finished, one gets 70 years. It is the duration in between the destruction of Solomon’s Temple to the start of the building of Zerubbabel’s Temple or the Babylonian Captivity. Also, it was the same year the 2nd Temple was destroyed in 70 AD.
Solomon erected other temples to his many wives; became apostate and was paid a salary of 666. ‘They set up their abominations in the House that is called by my Name, to defile it.’ -Jeremiah 32:34 King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon eventually destroyed the Temple in 586 BC.
(A type of AntiChrist)
Antiochus IV Epiphanies desecrate the Temple. Erected statue of Zeus and sacrificed a pig on the altar. ~167 BC. Prince Titus eventually destroyed the Temple in AD 70. (A type of AntiChrist)
The AntiChrist will directly be involved in the 3rd Temple. The Temple Mount has been desolate during the ‘trodden down of the Gentiles’ and Church Age. It has been occupied by Romans, Byzantines, Muslims, Crusaders, Ottomans, British, etc. These are all types of AntiChrist system.
Since the beginning of the Church Age, Israel has had no physical Temple. This is because Messiah has been abiding and building a Spiritual Temple, which is the ‘Body of Messiah’ being built by Jesus Christ during this present Church Age Dispensation. For example, if each Church of Asia is a subset of the Age, each branch as a type of prophetic time and Menorah will be a ~280 year average duration of time. (289 years x 7 cycles = 2023 years)
From AD 70, the 2nd Temple destruction + 1948 years = 2018
IF 1 Generation = 53 years
Then you add 53 years (1 Generation) to 691 AD when Dome of Rock construction begun
Then 691 AD + 53 year Generation Factor = 744 years, which is a phi ratio of 1948.
IF 1 Generation = 52/53 Years
52/53 Years x 7 cycles = 364/5 (Solar Prophetic Year)
744 years phi ratio of 1948 - 586 BC when Solomon Temple was destroyed = 188 years
586 BC + AD 70 years = 656 - 774 = 88 Years
1204 phi ratio of 1948 - 970 BC
Solomon Temple Started = 234 years
The House Stewardship
The Bible declares that YHVH mandated the stewardship of the House of YHVH or Temple to the Jewish nation but that the Temples were also intended to be the ‘House of Prayer for all the Nations’. With such honor and stewardship comes much responsibility. It is also a double-edged sword in that such stewardship over the Temples became a burden to the Jewish nation. Likewise, this apostasy can and does occur also to Christians in dealing with the Spiritual House, Christ is currently building with ‘Living Stones’. The ‘Abominations of Desolation’ was and is but a symptom of man’s inability to uphold YHVH’s righteous requirements due to the holiness of YHVH, our sinful nature and love of our sin. Mankind falls short of being able to uphold YHVH’s integrity.
Humanity, as a fallen race according to the Bible is in sin and cannot uphold YHVH’s precepts because of this human condition; but if not for the work of GOD the SON. GOD the SON was born as a human, yet fully GOD and fully Man to show the human race the full extent of the Father’s love for the world. Jesus Christ imputed His righteousness to all Humanity – to those that will avail themselves through repentance and faith. Christ was able to accomplish this substitutionary work because there was no sin, nor sin nature in him, humanly speaking; He was a perfect, sinless human representative of all Humanity and for all Humanity. Jesus Christ is thus called the ‘Last Adam’ on Humanity’s behalf due to His loving kindness toward a fallen race of Humanity.
This reconciliation to the Father was demonstrated through His mercy and grace accomplished through death and suffering of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary; it was a substitutionary death, 1 for all. The cost of sin is the ‘Eternal Death’ and separation from the true and living GOD for all eternity. Over 1980 years ago, Jesus Christ bridged this separation of sin’s demand by paying the cost to reconcile Humanity back to the Father –at the cost of His own separation experienced at the Cross of Calvary. But any human substitution demanded perfection. Jesus Christ fulfilled this requirement and thus was able to pay for Humanity’s restitution by His sacrifice at the Cross of Calvary. Yet the principle remains the same for YHVH’s Spiritual People even now as it was for national Israel. The standard regarding His ‘House’ in the spiritual sense and practically for our own bodies has to be maintained holy.
Now according to the Bible, one’s redeemed body is the ‘Temple of the Holy Spirit’. The Jews did not nor could not uphold such a majestic standard -as evident in the 2 Temple’s prior Desolations and subsequent judgment upon YHVH’s Earthly People for their sin and defilement of YHVH’s House. Yet, now as believers and followers of the true Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ does provide someone that national Israel did not have, the ‘Comforter.’ It is the Holy Spirit that enables YHVH’s power to have the LORD work through His People and override the sinful nature, through the indwelling of GOD the HOLY SPIRIT in one’s body. In fact it is just a ‘down payment’ or deposit as 2 Corinthians 1:22 states of what glory is yet to come upon the new incorruptible bodies that are to be transformed at the point of the Resurrection and Rapture when the Church Age is completed. It is with the help of GOD the HOLY SPIRIT that empowers the Disciples of Christ to uphold, maintain and live out such a high standard before men and YHVH.
Sin in the Camp
Followers of Jesus just have to be faithful to daily confess one’s sins and work at forsaking the love of sin. This is the present-day Sanctifying work that is part of the comprehensive package of what ‘Salvation’ is about. In the current Church Age, the Apostle Paul likewise warns the Body of Christ, YHVH’ Spiritual Temple, that unrepentant sin will likewise cause Desolation and compromise the witness of Christ to the world. Paul likens the human body as a mysterious ‘Spiritual Temple’ that YHVH is somehow using each individual Believer in Jesus Christ to construct a ‘Spiritual House’ in which the LORD Himself will dwell in the midst one glorious day. Moreover, it is a ‘Bride’ that is being constructed out of the Last Adam, much like Eve was from the side of the 1st Adam in the Garden of Eden.
Thus, it is incumbent upon those that profess Christ as LORD and Savior to live a holy life and present one’s physical body, not as a ‘dead sacrifice’ but a ‘living one’. This means that one has to go through life, choosing against what would compromise and/or cause defilement or Desolation to our physical bodies on the sake of YHVH’s integrity, metaphorically speaking. More so, the Bride of Christ needs to guard what is allowed by way of the body’s gateways that can cause damage to one’s soul for all Eternity as well. Such can be the sins of words, thoughts, and deeds for example. Currently many are seeing before their very eyes in the world and Church, the defilement or ‘Desolations’ that are now being openly embraced outside but more shockingly inside in what is so-called the mainstream ‘Christian Church’ and on many levels.
There is no doubt to many Believers and Followers of Christ recognize that such are living in the ‘Laodicean’ Church Age, in general. Nowhere else is this condition more prevalent than in the USA and Western Europe. In many segments of Christendom, the rule of the people has forced Christ outside the Church in exchange for the world’s standards of what is right and wrong, good, and evil. Simultaneously, the Church is currently still in the mixing of the wheat the tares, the sheep and the goats until the ‘separation’ happens that is to occur at the Rapture of the Church by Jesus Christ. Many looking at such prophetic patterns as presented in this study based on prior Temple Desolations and destruction cannot help but realize just how close the present ‘Pentecostal Intermission’ Church Age is to possibly reach the countdown to the Blessed Hope.
Perhaps, this ‘harvesting’ and end-gathering as it was for the Jews at the end of World War 2 will likewise trigger a time of ingathering just before the convergence of this possible up-and-coming time period shortly after 2018. The Rapture event could very well mark one of the factors that will contribute to the construction of the 3rd Temple. May the Bride of Christ not cause nor allow ‘Abomination of Desolations’ in her ‘Temple’. May she be found faithful of her stewardship before men and Jesus, her Redeemer, Friend, Lover, Groom and Savior. May she continually avail herself of the cleansing power of Jesus’ Blood through prayer, fellowship, study, and witness. As she practices these prerogatives, Christ’s promise to her, His Bride, is that He will be ever faithful to continue to wash her with His Word and precious Blood. This justifying, sanctifying and purifying work that constitutes ‘Salvation’ in Jesus Christ.
It is accomplished through the Holy Spirit will allow her, one day to be able to present herself spotless before the Father in Glory after the Rapture. Such a Witness will then be able to face Lucifer in the Court of Heaven required for her ‘adjudication’ during the breaking of the Seal Judgments by the Groom, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Jesus. At that time, Christ, the Groom will usher her into the real Holy of Holies in the true Temple and House of YHVH in Heaven and thereafter, to the many rooms prepared for her in the true Temple of the LORD. This is even so in the New Jerusalem that is to come down from Heaven thereafter ‘as a Bride adorned for her Husband.’ May she be found guiltless without accusation before the Bema Seat of Christ after the Rapture. May the Church members be those that are fit vessels, suited for a place in the New Jerusalem that will be YHVH’s House of Worship and Prayer for all the Nations where no more Abominations nor Desolations will ever occur. Amen.
