“The Third Temple” This is one of the big questions I see people asking. I just got done with a several week series on the 70 weeks. Long story short, the third temple is us. What is being taught about the third temple is a fable that Paul warned Timothy about.
Isa 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
1Co_3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? \
1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
I came to clarity on this over the last 6 months Mark and wanted to pass it on. I really pressed in to get understanding on the 2 witnesses. After dilligently seeking the Lord he opened it up to me. The 2 witnesses are the type and shadow of Joshua and Zerubabel. That’s why the olive tree and the candle sticks and all that point you right to Zechariah. It’s all about building the temple. The 2 witnesses are the kings and priests building the temple
Rev_1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
The Royal (Zerubabel, line of David, Governer in line to be king, didn’t become king because we become the kings, ruling and reigning with Christ.) and Joshua (high priest, leading the remnant out of Babylonian captivity, type and shadow of our the priesthood of believers.)
Rev 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
Rev 21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, (Cornerstone) even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Rev 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
The Third Temple is New Jerusalem, the church. It is built with much “trouble” (“even in troublous times” Dan 9:25)
It’s all about the “ensample” the old testament gave us.
1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
Nehemiah building the temple with sword (the word of truth) and the trowl (tempered morter, the truth is the morter that holds it all together)
I know questions like this have to be coming at you, wanted to share this. Hope it helps.
One taken one left. taken is bad, we don’t want to be taken we want to be left. Taken means taken away by the flood. The flood out of the mouth of the dragon. The flood is deception. That’s the rapture. People that believe they are going to be taken by a rapture have already been taken. No rapture till the end.
Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
See this people who believe the rapture will wisk them away have already been “taken” They’ve been taken away by the overflowing scourge (the smare, Luke 21). The overflowing is the lies they believe, people who believe they will be taken away by a rapture have already been taken away by deception, the flood (overflowing scourge) out of the dragons mouth.
I know this is what people are questioning Mark. This is the truth about these subjects. Thought I’d pass this along. I Love You Buddy.
This is something else I just realized.
Mat 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
It’s all right here. Not one stone is left upon another, Jesus is talking about the physical temple and the spiritual temple both here. The tearing down of the spiritual temple is what we have today, why because of the next verse. Deception, false doctrine. That’s what tears down the walls, all the disagreement in the house of God. This is what the 2 witnesses are rebuilding, it’s all about truth and lies. Right there in the Ollivette Discourse. The context of Mat 24:2 is key, the next words out of Jesus’ mouth clarifying what he just said.
The big key Mark to all this stuff is man trys to put physical interpretations on these deep spiritual teachings. The temple is the spiritual temple. built “not by power and not by might but by my spirit. (Zech 4)
Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
This is what the little horn power does it keeps us looking at things like the eyes of a man.
