The Bible has thousands of prophetic utterances which brings controversy today regarding the predictions by its 40 authors and 66 books. There is confusion, speculation, debate, and mystery concerning this most published book in history.
The Bible consists of over 25% prophetic stipulations of declaring the truth which intersects with quite a bit of human history. Over 20,000 archaeological digs have substantiated statements in the Bible, something those claiming myths, fables, and errors usually are oblivious to.http://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/much-bible-prophecy/
Among the world’s turmoil, the nation of Israel, the Jews, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount have been a point of contention with the world for multiple millennium. The Bible has prophecy that deals directly with the issues that salt and pepper our media broadcasts today. This irrefutable fact troubles many people today.
Jerusalem is the most conquered city in history, beginning back to nearly 1000BC when King David captured the city from the Jebusites. Secular history was in denial of this fact until in the mid-20th century when archaeology discovered buried pillars with the dynasty of King David inscribed. Skeptics, doubters, and scoffers were boisterous before in their criticism that no evidence was ever found about King David. After all, only the Bible made this claim.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Jerusalem
This mid-20th century mark has been the uncovering much Bible prophecy, from the rebirth of Israel in 1948, to the recapture of Jerusalem by the Jews in 1967 during the miraculous Six Day War, the 1973 Yom Kippur War where Israel was in a hairs-breath of destruction, to the world’s current quagmire regarding the disposition of Israel and Jerusalem.
In Ezekiel 38:4-, God declares,
“And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts or armor, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them: all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands, the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with him.”
This conflict has not happened yet in our time, but it all centers around Israel and Jerusalem. There appears to be an Islamic coalition will rise up to destroy Israel. The center of this animosity is Jerusalem and what perhaps takes place on the Temple Mount.
It could easily take place after the Jewish Temple is built on the Temple Mount. Why must a now non-existent Jewish Temple exist? Because the Bible says when the anti-Christ comes to power, he will enter the Jewish Temple to declare himself to be God and cause the daily sacrifices to cease.
After the Temple was destroyed by Roman emperor Titus in 70AD and with the Jews being dispersed after 1.5 million were slaughtered by Titus in the destruction of Jerusalem (again), it looked like the Bible blew it on its end time prediction. With an another carnage generated by Roman emperor Hadrian against the Jew around 135AD, Hadrian then changed the world maps showing Judah and making the maps reflect Palestine just to annoy and remind the Jews of its historical enemy the Philistines, it looked like it was over.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish%E2%80%93Roman_wars
The coup de grace appeared really to take place between 687AD and 691AD when the site of ancient Jewish Temple was replaced by the “Dome of the Rock” by Caliph Abd al-Malik. The location where prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven based on the Muslim religion is the most holy site in Islam.
The idea that a Jewish Temple could rise at the Temple Mount seems impossible, improbable, and pure lunacy. One could add preposterous for emphasis.http://www.truthnet.org/Endtimes/7/
Or is it really?
The Bible declares that the anti-Christ will forge a peace treaty with Israel for 7-years, then halfway through the 7-years he will break his peace treaty. The Holy Scriptures also stipulates that the anti-Christ will enter the Temple to set himself up as God and cause the Jewish daily sacrifices to cease.
This is a pretty bold statement Daniel 9:27 made thousands of years ago. Didn’t he know there would be a Dome of the Rock built over the Jewish Temple that was destroyed? God must have blown it for the first time in history.
How in the world can the anti-Christ get Israel to agree to a 7-year peace treaty? This can be done by dangling a carrot as an incentive to get not only Israel to agree, but to get Islam to let this happen without World War 3 breaking out. The anti-Christ will wax eloquent to the maximum in getting the aforementioned to happen with his charisma, but how?
A huge piece of the puzzle can be attributed to Asher Kaufman who has a theory that the existing Dome of the Rock was not built on top of the Jewish Temple as many believed, but closer to the opposite side away from the original Jewish Temple.
The Jewish Mishna stipulates that the western gate, Gate Beautiful, the Holy of Holies, dome of the Spirits, and Eastern Gate were all on a direct line to each other. There is nothing of significance at all the sites that would conflict with the new Jewish Temple being built.
The publication by Jack Coleburn entitled “History Past, History Future” is one of the few sources revealing this critical piece of information.
This stunning revelation could allow the Jewish Temple to be built side by side to the Temple Mount. This concession would entice Israel to give authority and control of half of Jerusalem so the Jewish Temple could be built . Islam would agree to allowing the Temple to be built in order to acquire its long sought capital with half of Jerusalem in their control and Palestine as its state. Israel would give additional land to establish Palestine to accomplish building its Temple.
It will be a masterful work of diplomacy that will leave the world in wonder. It is also the only Bible scripture that positively identifies the anti-Christ.
As the Bible says, “when they declare peace and safety, sudden destruction cometh”.
