A Third Temple in Jerusalem is ready to be rebuilt on the Temple Mount

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: For years Jews have been preparing.

DD: When I first went to Israel in 1980 which is well over 30 years, well almost 40 years ago now actually there was already talk of it at least and people expressing their desire to one day see the Temple rebuilt. As the years have gone on the actual activities to make that happen have increased substantially. We now have a sitting Sanhedrin which by the way Jimmy this evening in Jerusalem they’re lighting the final candle of Hanukkah and they have representatives of 70 different righteous nations there. They’re going to do it on Mt. Zion. They’re proclaiming that judgment is coming. The 70 righteous nations as they put it are being opposed by the 70 dark nations that are opposing righteousness on Earth and then a showdown with Edom is coming. And basically they’re predicting conflict ahead.

The Sanhedrin has been reconstituted. We have all the preparations. We have red heifers being produced in purity. The oil by the way in the menorah that’s being lit is Temple ready and has been purified according to the Biblical presets so that it could be used in a new Temple at any moment actually. We’ve talked about the fact that Jews are praying up on the Temple Mount in record numbers. The status quo agreement as it’s called between Israel and Jordan was that Israel would be overall in control of the Temple Mount since 67 but Islam would still reign supreme on it but that’s been eroding and of course clashing is taking place. It’s many indications that something big is happening. And of course the average Israeli is just watching. But Orthodox Jews in particular very eager to see a temple return to their holiest site on earth. And as I’ve said the preparations are ongoing. 

JD: David Dolan with details on the status of the third Temple being rebuilt on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

David Dolan’s report detailed for us the Jewish status on the rebuilding of a Temple in Jerusalem. The preparations to rebuild a temple on the Temple Mount have been on going for almost now 40 years.

The Bible does call for a temple on the Temple Mount in fact, two Temples in the future. The Messiah’s Temple which will be in the kingdom period, Zechariah 6:12 & 13 will be built by Jesus. But the Tribulation Temple the next Temple to be built will be built by Orthodox Jews and is called for in the prophetic passages of God’s word, that’s Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15 and Revelation 11:1 & 2.

Islam is growing and becoming more radical

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Islam, that faith which is a major force in our world today. Are they becoming more radical?

KT: Well Jimmy there’s good news and bad news in this story. Islam has been radical for 1,400 years. Remember it began with the sword and it’s only rarely that it puts away the sword, that it chic’s the sword. What we’ve seen over the past year really is a shift of the center of Islam. Going from Saudi Arabia to Turkey. Saudi Arabia which has become more pro-Western over the past year with Mohammed bin Salman the crown prince and certainly cracking down on political Islam in his country, the Jihadi groups that are operating from his country.

But the slack has been picked up Jimmy by Erdogan in Turkey. Now remember Turkey has a huge standing army. They have just invaded northern Syria and Turkey is turning increasingly towards Russia and working in concert with the Iranians. So you have a shift in the balance of power in the Islamic world if you wish. And I would say on balance it is becoming more radical.

JD: And that radicalization really beginning back in 1979 when the Ayatollah Khomeini came into Iran and made it an Islamic Republic. What does that actually mean Ken?

KT: I actually like to call them the Islamic state of Iran because there’s nothing Republican about their form of government. What it means Jimmy is that Iran has lost its nationalist pass and adopted this worldwide Islamist movement. They believe that they are the leaders of Islam in the world of course that’s being disputed definitely by Saudi Arabia. But they are ruled by the Quran. They have a constitution but that constitution is subjected to Sharia law which is derived from the Quran. And “Islamic Republic” so to speak and I’ve put it in quotes, is really an Islamic state ruled by Sharia law which is an expansionist totalitarian all encompassing world views and we will see more terrorism in 2020.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details of Islam’s growth and radicalization.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Islam according to the Bible, I John 2:18 is an antichrist religiosity. The major players of the Islamic world would be Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Add to that mix Russia and Iran and you have the end time scenario for Bible prophecy.

Ezekiel 38:2-6 and Psalm 83:6 those prophetic passages set in place an alignment that wants to destroy the Jewish state of Israel, that’s Psalm 83:4.
