STUDY. The Third Temple of Jerusalem, Is it material or spiritual? By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

The term temple (from the Latin templum) designates a sacred building. Originally, the area designated as the augur sky used to contemplate what birds crossed it and in what sense, thus establishing the omens. Many religions, if not all, are considered sacred buildings [1].

A little history
The first Temple of Jerusalem
The sense of a Temple is to have a physical location for meetings and worship. The first one up for this purpose was the Tent of Meeting in the time of the Exodus (Ex.25 to 40), as it name suggests is for the meeting between God and men. From the Pentateuch Ex 25 all revolve around the Tabernacle, as this is where the Lord spoke to Moses.
The Tabernacle of Moses meeting was replaced by the 1st Temple in Jerusalem, built by King Solomon, son of David, on the esplanade of Mount Moriah, where today the Mosque “Dome of the Rock”. This temple was destroyed in 586 BCE by Nebuchadnezzar.

The second Temple of Jerusalem
Seventy years after the destruction of Jerusalem under the leadership of Zerubbabel rebuilds the Temple led by Ezra. With the invitation of Zerubbabel, the governor, who showed them a remarkable example of liberality by contributing personally 1,000 drams of gold, and other gifts, the people gave their gifts to the sacred treasury with great enthusiasm (Ezra 2). First erected and dedicated the altar of God in the exact spot where he was the former. Then cleaned the charred rubble that occupied the site of the ancient temple. Finally, in the second month of the second year (535 a.), And in the excitement and joy of the audience gathered there (Book of Psalms 116-11, which laid the foundations of the second temple.

Third Temple of Jerusalem
About 19 BC, Herod the Great began a massive renovation and expansion of the temple. This was demolished and a new one was built in its place. The new structure is sometimes referred to as Herod’s Temple, but is still called Second Temple rituals and sacrifices that continued unabated throughout the construction process.
Destruction of the Temple [2]
In 66 d. C., the Jewish population rebelled against the Roman Empire. In 70 d. C., Roman legions under the command of Titus retook and then destroyed most of Jerusalem and the Second Temple.
The last temple before Armageddon
According to the prophecy of Jesus, the apostle Matthew documented in Chapter XXIV of his gospel, one of the signs of the end [3] of the times is the destruction of the Temple and the city of Jerusalem after the Battle of Megiddo ( Armageddon).
Faced with this prophecy is obvious that to be able to meet, first the Temple would be rebuilt. The Jews already have everything you need for recreation, including utensils and sacrificial red heifer for purification. Hence, many believe that in order to untie the missing end time is met with the reconstruction as a sine qua non.
However, for other Christian thinkers and the last temple was built, it is the believers themselves harboring the presence of the Holy Spirit of God, being “alive Tabernacles”. For those who think this way, the destruction of the Temple is quite simply the persecution and killing of Christians [4].
The persecution of Christians is increasingly violent, only during the S XX more Christians killed for religious reasons than in the previous nineteen centuries [5].
If this is so, no need to be met any other conditions for the start of Week 70, the Great Tribulation of apocalyptic texts that speak of the Bible.
Are We Ready? Christ is coming soon.
Week 70 is about to begin.
[2] III. 26 In the third year of Christ’s ministry, this was crucified. It will run out of town and the sanctuary, for a future ruling will destroy them. In 24.2 Mt prophecy Jesus himself confirms this when he says: Do you see all this? Assuredly, I say, do not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down. And Jesus was referring to the Temple and the city of Jerusalem. Regarding the time of these events Jesus said: 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. At that time a generation covering 40. Which was fulfilled because in 70 during the great Jewish revolt against Rome, the Emperor sent to Jerusalem to General Tito, who razed the city and the temple, killing a million people.
[3] The time of the end is not the end of the world, but the end time of the Grace of God, IV. It is important to understand that between the 69th and 70th week God has brought a time of grace in which we all have the opportunity to repent and turn to God, before they unleash the final events. In the last week a prince buster (the Antichrist) will covenant with many. There will be peace for the first three years and a half but then betray the alliance and will cease the sacrifice and the oblation to reign the abomination of desolation, until you find your destination.
