Jewish and Christian conservatives promote building new temple in Jerusalem
This will usher in Jerusalem’s great tribulation.
By Craig C. White
The latest troubling news that I have heard is that conservative Christian Bible teachers and conservative Jewish pundits are all calling for a temple to be built in Jerusalem. They say that this will usher in lasting peace in Israel. But in truth, building a temple in Jerusalem will usher in Jerusalem’s great tribulation. Some people who have promoted building a new temple in Jerusalem are Rabbi Yehudah Glick of course but also former Arkansas Governor and Evangelical Christian Mike Huckabee, Jewish conservative activist and lawyer Jay Sekulow, and Jewish Evangelical Christian and Bible prophecy speaker Amir Tsarfati.
Mike Huckabee has joined forces with Rabbi Yehudah Glick for the purpose of gathering signatures on the Jerusalem Covenant. The Jerusalem Covenant is a petition that reaffirms Israel’s right to exist as a nation and also it’s right to build a temple in Israel. Rabbi Yehudah Glick is an Israeli Parliament (Knesset) member plus Glick is also the leading proponent for building a temple in Jerusalem.
Conservative Radio and TV talk show host and lawyer Jay Sekulow recently gave a speech at the UN calling for Israel’s right to build a temple in Jerusalem. I love Jay Sekulow. He truly does fight for law and justice; but he should be aware that the Prophet Daniel says that building a temple in Jerusalem and resuming temple sacrifices there will hasten the time of Jacob’s trouble.
Jewish Christian and Bible prophecy speaker Amir Tsarfati says that Israel will certainly not be attacked. That’s not what Zechariah says.
Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Amir Tsarfati says that the Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel will usher in lasting peace in Israel. The Turkish led Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel is forming now in the Golan Heights of Syria. Every nation that Ezekiel 38:5 lists is fighting in Syria today. This invasion will happen soon.
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
God will cause these nations to retreat. The Turkish led Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel probably will prompt the seven year peace treaty spoken of by Daniel, but the peace treaty will be broken by an attack on Jerusalem beginning their time of great tribulation.
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
It just proves that it is not enough to be conservative. You must be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. There is a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof is destruction.
The next verse was written about the Jews living around Jerusalem. When they declare that peace and security has finally come to Jerusalem then an army will sweep in and kill them or carry them away as prisoners.
1Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Today the Jewish Rabbis are predicting that building a temple will bring lasting peace to Jerusalem. Jewish and Christian conservatives are reinforcing this treacherous misconception. The Tribulation truly is near. It’s High Time to Awake!
