A Jordanian minister accused Israel on Wednesday of planning to partition the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount plaza surrounding it in order to erect the third Temple. http://www.templeinstitute.org/archive/03-01-13.htm
The Jews have expressed deep desire to rebuild the Temple since the 2nd temple was destroyed in A.D. 70. This is also a last days & end times event. I say both because it’s not factual that the temple will be completed during the last days or until just before the 1st half of the Tribulation. I do believe that everything needed to build it is just about in place. Read Ezekiel 40-48 to learn just how the temple will be rebuilt.
Of course we know the ongoing struggle in Jerusalem between the Muslims & the Jews. The antichrist will have taken care of that problem with a brokered peace deal see Daniel 9:27
This Temple will be very significant in the coming times ahead. The Antichrist will allow the temple to stand, and even allow worship in it for a time. Then he will do unspeakable, unheard of things in the temple as a stab against God Almighty & his son Jesus Christ.
“And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.” Daniel 9:26
The Antichrist will 1st allow Jewish worship in the temple,and in peace. Then not only take it away but the antichrist will then enter
The Holy of Hollies, and defile it in ways that will surely be very sinful & very satan, and then he will declare himself God over all the earth.
Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and fortress, and shall take away the regular burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate” Daniel 11:31
This will mark a time in the Tribulation of great fear. Jesus warns us that WHEN this happens its time to fleeeee!
"So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak.19And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days!” Matthew 24:15-19
Jesus then goes on to let us know that the Tribulation on earth at this time will worse than anything that has every been experienced anywhere on the earth prior to this, and nothing will ever be this bad ever again.
“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be” Matthew 24:21
As you can see, the temple is very important and significant. Also a major last days, and end times event. If you read revelations you will see that Jesus ends up with the Victory. Jesus died on the cross, and beat death & satan 2000 yrs ago, and He will do again at the end of the Tribulation. This for those who are saved, who have given their life to Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian; I would suggest you watch, and pay attention close to the temple project. Why?—simple--- use it as a witness tool to show others about our Loving God…why they need Him…and why time is running out.

I pray safety in your Missions for the Messiah this week.
