BIN: While covering his address to the 74th session of the UN General Assembly last Thursday, most of the media focused on the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affair’s harsh words concerning Iran and its renewed nuclear program but the mainstream media missed a far more shocking aspect of his speech in which Yisrael Katz quoted the Prophet Isaiah in calling all of the gathered nations to come to the House of Prayer for All Nations.
“I will bring them to My sacred mount And let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices Shall be welcome on My mizbayach; For My House shall be called A house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7 (The Israel Bible™)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (a Levite), canceled his appearance in front of the UN General Assembly, ostensibly due to high-pressure coalition negotiations but it could be he was deferring to his Minister of Foreign Affair, Yisrael Katz, who is a Kohen (a descendant of Aaron the priest). more …
Opinion: First, Yisrael Katz is a Kohen (Cohen) or Cohanim (Kohanim), a descendant of the first high Priest Arron (Moses brother). There can be no temple without a high priest from the Kohen line and today calculations based on the high rate of genetic similarity of today’s Cohanim, resulted in the highest “paternity-certainty” rate ever recorded in population genetics studies — a scientific testimony to family faithfulness. The newly formed Sanhedrin can now identify a High Priest.
Second, Dispensational interpretation of Daniel 9:27 prophesies a 3rd temple built by Antichrist, who, after the church is gone (1 Thess. 4:16-17) will stand in that temple and declare himself god and cause the abomination beginning the great tribulation (last 3.5 years). Jewish interpretation of the same passage consider the Romans to have cause the abomination.
Therefore, with the church gone, the vast majority of people will think of Antichrist as a great leader and peacemaker. By the middle of Daniel’s 70th Week (7 year tribulation) most of the world will be following him (Rev. 13:3-4). According to Rev. 7:9-17 a great many of the post rapture believers who do recognize him will have been put to death by then. Only when he stands in the Temple claiming to be God will the Jews have clear proof of who he is, and reject him, touching off the final war of Armageddon.
The great debate: Will there be three temples or four? Since it is Antichrist who builds the 3rd temple, does Jesus rule from there? Many bible teachers have advanced the idea of a 4th temple built under the direction of Jesus upon His return.
Either way it is Jesus Messiah, our Lord and Savior, who is victorious. Amen.
