JD: Well, there is going to be a Temple that is going to be built as well, update us, what's the latest on the preparations to build that Temple on that very controversial piece of real estate?
YK: Over the past year there’s been quite a shift, there haven’t been a lot of new vessels things like that being created because quite frankly most of its done. What we’re seeing right now is the shift in the consciousness in the way that people, the average Jew on the street and politicians are relating to the Temple Mount.
People are preparing their minds and their bodies now like they never have before. They’re preparing for the Temple with their feet, by walking up to the Temple Mount itself and that’s where the real changes come this year.
JD: All the implements needed to operate the Temple the training of the Priest who will be those serving at the Temple, every item needed to build that building, its basically in place.
YK: Absolutely, that’s exactly what’s happening right now. Now of course there are a few things that are not ready that we cant just create out of thin air, like the ashes of the red heifer. There are only a few sacrifices, parts of the sacrificial service, that can be done without those ashes. A great many of offerings and sacrifices cannot be brought until we get those ashes and purify a new generation of Kohanim Priest.
Right now we have everything we need in place if we had the political the physical ability to walk up there and do it we could reinstitute the divine service today.
JD: Rabbi Yoel Keren with that report about the Jews being ready to rebuild the Temple.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
When Jesus comes back to the earth He will build a Temple in Jerusalem.
Zechariah 6:12, says Jesus will return to Jerusalem and there build a Temple. Verse 13, says that Jesus will rule and reign from that Temple forever. However, before the Temple of Jesus there in Jerusalem, there will be a Tribulation Temple. Daniel the ancient Jewish prophet made that statement in Daniel 9:27. Jesus confirmed Daniel’s prophecy, Matthew 24:15. The apostle Paul restated the promise of a Temple during the Tribulation period that’s II Thessalonians 2:4. And John the Revelator also foretold of a Temple during the Tribulation period in Jerusalem, that’s Revelation 11:1&2.
By the way, as you’ve already heard on this broadcast all the preparations have been made; everything is ready for that next Temple. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
