Israel 3365 News: On Thursday, Knesset Member Itamar Ben-Gvir (Jewish Power) entered the Temple Mount on Israel’s 74th Independence Day. During his visit, Ben-Gvir said: “The time has come to build a Jewish synagogue on the Temple Mount.”

Building the Third Temple is a commandment incumbent upon the Jewish people as written in the Book of Exodus:

And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them (Exodus 25:8)

Before ascending the Mount, Ben Gvir emphasized the importance of visiting the Temple Mount, writing: “Jews ascending the Temple Mount today proves that Hamas is an organization of pushovers that will easily surrender. On Israel’s 74th Independence Day, it’s important that government officials remember that we are an independent nation.”

Israel has prevented any effort to build a Temple on the Holy site for fear of Arab backlash. Instead, the Jewish pilgrims visiting the mount are forced to settle for silent prayer, an act recently allowed by the police stationed there.

Ben Gvir was among the more controversial MKs causing a storm when he decided to move his headquarters to the Arab-occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Shimon Hatzadik. Read More …

Opinion: The late Dr. Jimmy DeYoung said this:

The Bible does call for a temple on the Temple Mount, in fact, two Temples in the future. The Messiah’s Temple which will be in the kingdom period, Zechariah 6:12 & 13 will be built by Jesus. But the Tribulation Temple the next Temple to be built will be built by Orthodox Jews and is called for in the prophetic passages of God’s word, that’s Daniel 9:27 …

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week 
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering …

Three and 1/2 years after allowing a temple in Jerusalem, Antichrist will cause a disruption in Jewish worship…

Matthew 24:15:

Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand)”

In order for Antichrist to perform the abomination in the holy place (temple), there first must be one. Antichrist will set up an image of himself in the temple to be worshiped. When this happens, the Jews are told to flee to the mountains …

Map from Jerusalem to Mount Seir

Matthew does not say which mountain but the Bible gives us clues: In just under a 5 hour drive from Jerusalem is Mt. Seir or Petra, the former abode of Esau, the eternal enemy of Jacob has been desolate for over 2500 years

“Will I not in that day,” says the Lord, “Even destroy the wise men from Edom, And understanding from the mountains of Esau? Then your mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau May be cut off by slaughter.” Obadiah 1:9-10

The times of the end:.

Petra today is in southern Jordan, and in Daniel 12:41, at the conclusion of the great war of Armageddon, Daniel 11:41 says this:

He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon

The he in the passage is Antichrist, the Glorious Land is Israel and Edom, Moab and Ammon represent southern, central and northern Jordan in that order today.

God will spare all of Jordan because the Jews will be hiding in Edom to escape Antichrist.

And it is in Edom (Isaiah 63:1-3) where Isaiah encounters Jesus Christ upon His second coming, with His robe stained red with the blood of Edom, as He brings His people to repentance.

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.” Zechariah 12:10
