Does a Jerusalem Temple come before Zechariah 14 fulfilled?

Recommended Posts

Grant R. Jeffrey Ph. D. made some fascinating comments on the relationship between the Messianic Jewish community of the first century.......... until the destruction of the Temple...... and he compared what happened then with what will happen when Ezekiel chapters 40 - 48 are finally fulfilled in the millennium.

Grant R. Jeffrey Ph. D:

Quote

"The Sacrificial System Will Continue

One of the most perplexing ideas to students of Scripture is the idea that God intends that the annual feasts, along with animal sacrifice, will continue into the Millennium. Many Christians who have studied the prophetic portions of Zechariah 14, Isaiah 66, and Ezekiel 40 - 48, which clearly describe these Millennial worship ordinations, are confused by the idea. They ask, "Didn't the sacrifice of Christ eliminate animal sacrifices forever?"

............"Only the complete sacrifice of Jesus could ever totally atone for our sins. However, God clearly demanded the sacrifices from Adam to Christ. Those sacrifices were acts of obedience to the direct command of God, as well as acknowledgements of one's own personal sinfulness and need for God's forgiveness. Animal sacrifices covered the sins of the people temporarily until the prophesied Messiah would come and offer Himself once and for all as the necessary atonement for sin. If animal sacrifice can never atone for sin, why would God allow Israel to resume such sacrifice in the Third Temple, prior to Armageddon, and then demand that Israel continue such sacrifice in the Millennium? There are two reasons why I believe this is true."

First, the early Jewish - Christian Church continued to offer sacrifices in the first century.".......



.......Second, New Testament writers used the legal sacrificial system to illustrate very important points concerning Christ's sacrifice on the Cross.......

..... These examples of the way early Jewish believers used God's law to teach great love when He sacrificed His only Son on the cross will be repeated during the Millennium." (Grant R. Jeffrey, Messiah, War in the Middle East and the Road to Armageddon, page 317, 318 and 319)

 

I admit it..... Zechariah chapter 14 is scary..........
so humanly.... we tend to want to see these events delayed..... and delayed......
and delayed......!

NO to the question. Only the Messiah is authorized to build the Temple of God -- just as Solomon and Zerubbabel were so authorized by God beforehand. Zechariah 14 does not speak of any Temple in place at all before the judgment of God is fulfilled.

Any Temple build by anyone else would not be God's Tempe, period.

Zech 6:12 “Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, saying:

“Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out,
And He shall build the temple of the LORD.

Zech 3:8 ‘Hear, O Joshua, the high priest,
You and your companions who sit before you,
For they are a wondrous sign;
For behold, I am bringing forth My Servant the BRANCH.

9 For behold, the stone
That I have laid before Joshua:
Upon the stone are seven eyes.
Behold, I will engrave its inscription,’
Says the LORD of hosts,
‘And I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

10 In that day,’ says the LORD of hosts,
‘Everyone will invite his neighbor
Under his vine and under his fig tree.’ ”

Joshua/Jeshua, the High Priest that worked with Zerubbabel to build the 2nd Temple, was a sign of the Latter-Day true Branch of prophecy: the Messiah, the Priest-King of God, because both have the same name.

And He will not build it until after the battle Armageddon is over

There is no temple on the mount during the coming tribulation period [Revelation 11:2]

There will not be a temple until Zechariah comes to pass

No temple until the Lord's millennial kingdom comes

There will be no temple on the mount during the last 1260 days of the coming tribulation period KJV [Revelation 11:2]

Zechariah 14 is a factual account of what is going to happen soon

 

I agree..... but are there certain things that Christians can do to assist 

the Jewish community to accomplish what they do to set the stage for Zechariah chapter 14 and......

Ezekiel chapters 40 - 48?

But doesn't somebody stop the sacrifices after they have already been made for 42 months?

And isn't the person who stops those sacrifices in the Temple regarded as an enemy of Messiah Yeshua - Jesus?

 

Isn't it the anti-Christ person who stops the sacrifices from being made?

But what about the Cyrus Messiah figure.... who does not even know the Lord?

This Cyrus person is authorized to assist the Jewish people to rebuild the Jerusalem Third Temple.  

 

https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/isa/45/1/s_724001

Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

 

Which helps to explain why the Sanhedrin would ask President Trump and President Putin to rebuild the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

Sanhedrin to Trump-Putin: Fulfill Cyrus-like role in Jerusalem

With the two top world leaders supporting Jewish right to Jerusalem, Sanhedrin asks that they build Third Temple.
