Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem say the Jews never built a Temple on the Temple Mount

On the internet site of the Islamic Trust, the custodians of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, you can read that David, Solomon, and Herod did not build the Temple there on the Temple Mount, but rather they repaired something that had been there since the time of Adam some 6,000 years ago.

The revisionist history of the Palestinians is that the first and second temples are lies fabricated by the Jews; and the Mufti of Jerusalem, a very high ranking Muslim cleric, says that there are no remnants proving the Jewish claims that there was a Temple on that site.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Muslim claim that there never was a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem defies history and sets the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled. Jewish history scholars find it difficult to understand how the Muslim revisionist historians can say that there was never a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

General Titus, the commanding officer of the Roman army, the ones that destroyed the second Temple in 70 AD, said that the Jewish Temple was the most magnificent building he had ever seen just before his men took it apart stone by stone. By the way, the Roman destruction of the Temple actually fulfilled a prophecy made forty years before the fact by Jesus; that prophecy made in Matthew 24, when He said there would not be a stone upon a stone of the Temple in the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Josephus, the famous first century historian, wrote extensively about the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. History aside, the Bible gives account of the Temple being built by Solomon, a task taking seven years to complete the Jewish place of worship and sacrifice; that's I Kings 6, all 38 verses. The Jewish scribe, Ezra records the return of the Jews to Israel into Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple; that's Ezra 1-6. The prophet Zechariah says that God has chosen the Temple Mount to be the place where His Son, Jesus Christ, will return to; that's Zechariah 1:14-16, there to build a Temple; Zechariah 6:12, and where He will then rule and reign from that Temple for a thousand years; that's Zechariah 6:13.

The astounding statement by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Shiekh Zabri, that there is no evidence there was ever a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
