DOES the TEMPLE HAVE TO BE REBUILT FIRST?
Does the “Temple” need to be built for Prophecy to be fulfilled?
In Scripture we are told there would be a treaty made to “rebuild the temple” made by a great World Leader. He would be heralded as a “messianic” type person. Most refer to him as the coming “World Leader” or “anti-christ.”
There are “a lot” of assumptions in books, movies and teachers that “add” ideas to scripture. While they may or may not be correct, if it doesn’t say it plainly, God may surprise you with HOW he fulfills his word.
It is possible for the sacrificial system to be restarted without the Jewish Temple having been rebuilt (Ezra 3:6). But without the ashes of a Red Heifer to cleanse the priests and the Temple area, I don't see how the sacrifices could be carried out in a Biblical manner.
In their unbelief in the finished work of the Messiah upon the cross, the Orthodox Jews have added all sorts of unbiblical ideas to the Scriptures in order to try and justify themselves before God.
One such unbiblical idea is Kapparot, in which a live chicken is swung around a person's head before having its throat slit and its blood shed. The idea being that the blood of the chicken will cover the sins of the individual for another year. But this sacrifice has no foundation in Scripture, and is actually an insult to the one who has already redeemed us to God by His own blood (Hebrews 9:12).
There is a reason why a lamb was required for the Passover sacrifice.
It is because the paschal lamb would point prophetically to coming of the Lamb of God (John 1:29) who would bear away the sins of the world. He was the one who was without spot or blemish (1st Peter 1:19). He was the one who would be led as a lamb to the slaughter (Isaiah 53:7).
He was the one that God would make an offering for our sin (Isaiah 53:10). Praise God that we have a more excellent sacrifice, one that need not be repeated year after year (Hebrews 10:12). Praise God that the offering of Jesus Christ was such that He has "put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself", Hebrews 9:26. And do you know something? If your sin has been put away by Christ, then it's gone! And nobody in heaven or earth has the authority to bring it up before you again. As the Scripture says, your "sins and iniquities will I remember NO MORE", Hebrews 10:17. You can't bring something up before God that He has already dealt with. That's why there is no more offering for sin. Do you know your sins forgiven? Have you found peace with God through the blood of His cross? (Colossians 1:20) Turn away from your sin. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today. It's the greatest decision you will ever make in your life. –Chris Perver
Prove All Things knowing that all Prophecy is about Jesus and God revealing His Son…To us..for our…Salvation. We post material that is questionable, objectionable, and in the opinion of the Editor of the Prophetic Perspective, valid to use as God chooses to. Sometimes that is highly suspect as material setting “dates” of the Rapture is, but often these posts, may have pieces that are correct to futher study.
