Dare I dip my toes into the frigid waters of the Third Temple discussion which is immensely complex, contentious, conspiratorial, and divisive?
As the End of Days storm rages outside, flashes of news appears, about the Third Temple. I am reminded of one of my favorite Psalms, "The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters." Psalm 29
Many have opinions about the recent dedication of an 'altar' for the Third Temple before taking time to study it out. It takes many, many, years to fully understand all the innuendos and implications of the Temple, whether you believe it is a brick and mortar building or that it resides within your body. Even after years of study it is a life long endeavor.
If You Tube was a global consensus one might believe that the Third Temple is the Golden Calf of the 21st Century. Some believe it is apostasy while others see it as a sign of coming redemption. I am deeply saddened and grieved by the divisive fruit associated with even a discussion about the Third Temple. As I cautiously step into these contentious waters, I will humbly submit a summation of my current understanding about the Temple. I present my evidence for purposes of discussion only. I mean no disrespect to anyone who has taken this matter to the Lord in prayer and who has studied the issue.
Am I discerning anti-Christ in the wind?
Seeds, Zera, are the Word of God
It can produce a highly productive plant or if damaged in some invisible way it can result in a poor yield, sterility, or even bad fruit. It could bear good fruit, be sterile, or bear bad fruit. The Temple has potential to unite the mankind in global harmony. Unfortunately, I am also seeing the fruit of the coming anti-Christ spread across the land.
To my astonishment, well grounded bible believers are engaging in rabidly unbiblical and wild rumors.
Am I discerning anti-Christ in the wind?
Moses dedicated over six and a half chapters to God describing how it should be built in Exodus 25:1 through 31:11. Scripture indicates that it is the tabernacle, not the temple, which will be restored.
Scripture indicates that it is the tabernacle, not the temple, which will be restored.
In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old. Amos 9:11
Temple (Beit HaMikdash)
The temple however originated with David, not God, and God clearly rejected David’s proposal to build it 1 Chronicles 17:4.
David gave the first command to start some amount of construction when he told the people to "arise and build the sanctuary of the Lord God" . This construction was likely limited to housing the ark and priestly instruments, but, nonetheless, was construction. I believe the recent so called 'dedication' of the altar is the same call as David made years ago. David also charged Solomon to continue the work he began in 1 Chronicle.
Notice these disturbing words:
"David made abundant preparations" 1 Chronicles. If you closely study the AI beast system you will notice an emphasis in plans, projects and goals to return abundance to humanity.
"I have taken much trouble to prepare." The work of the Lord is not burdensome for He lifts the burden from us.
David appointed masons and prepared iron, bronze, and cedar in abundance as seen in 1 Chronicles. 22:2-3. Once again, the wealth and new technologies of the earth are being assembled by masons skilled in the dark arts of alchemy and metallurgy of the fallen angels to build this new edifice.
And for "the courts of the house of the Lord, of all the chambers all around, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries for the dedicated things." I would submit to you that the blueprint created for the ThirdTemple was never to house God, but to house Satan.
David budgeted it, funded it, created all of the plans, and provided all the materials for it. He even had the location picked out. We are seeing this spirit, if you will, with preparations for the Third Temple and the rise of the anti-Christ spirit. It is as if everything is being mobilized and will be handed to the anti-Christ on a silver platter in the name of global religion. Succinctly, the Temple stands in opposition to the philosophy of worship given to Moses.

Rise and Fall of the Temple
The First Temple was built by Solomon in 957 B.C. and sacked by Sheshonk I during his invasion of Judah between 926 and 917 B.C.
It was fixed up considerably under Jehoash in 835 B.C., then stripped by Sennacherib King of Assyria in 700 B.C., and completely destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.
The Second Temple was rebuilt under Zerubbabel at the end of the captivity in 516 B.C. Zerubbabel’s humble temple was then remodeled by King Herod around 20 B.C. It was completely destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Romans and remains in ruins until this day.
Stephen includes the building of the temple in his list of examples of how the Israelites had resisted the Holy Spirit in Acts 7:44-50.
Jesus indicates his disapproval of the temple when he called it “a den of thieves and robbers,” in Matthew 21:13. The Book of Hebrews bypasses and ignores the Jewish Temple altogether, identifying all of the typical functions mentioned in Exodus, not with the temple, but with the tabernacle.”

Why the Third Temple MUST be Built
There are two primary reasons why the Third Temple must be built because it is prophesied and redemption. This was true of the Hebrews wandering in the desert, and it is certain true for each person of faith, as we overcome various temptations and trials in our life. It takes some time to embrace the simplicity of redemption from slavery to sin and become a new creation.
Why the Jews do not believe in Jesus
It is very easy if you are not in the hot drivers seat be a back seat driver. You must understand that each generation has had shadowing of messiah and anti-messiah. I am not saying THE MESSIAH, but foreshadows of each. Some messiah's have hoodwinked the Jewish people such as false messiah Bar Kochba or mid-17th century false messiah Shabbetai Tzvi spread like wildfire throughout the Jewish world, sweeping up entire communities and creating a crisis of faith unprecedented in Jewish history. Likewise, there are anti-messiah's (anti-Christ) such as Hitler and Stalin.
There is another reason, and that is that Jesus did not fulfill the messianic prophecies in the bible. If you were a People of the Book what would you do?
What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish? Specifically, the Bible says he will:
Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).
Gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).
Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore." (Isaiah 2:4)
Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world – on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).
Sanhedrin, Sects, and Denominations
It is important to know the players as the news unfolds. Within Judaism and in Christianity there are many sects and denomination. These vary from ultra conservative to ultra liberal Judaism spans Reform to Ultra Orthodox-one particular body of adherents does not have it all in either Judaism or Christianity. Believers carry out their belief system in different ways.
The Sanhedrin of today is not a legitimate Sanhedrin. And no, it has not been dedicated to Temple Service. The current Sanhedrin is a global governing amalgamation.
The Great Sanhedrin was established after Jethro's sage advice to Moses that he could not bear the burden for all the people alone. It is an ancient Jewish court system during the time of the Holy Temple. The Great Sanhedrin as a religious assembly of 71 sages who met in the Chamber of Hewn Stones in the Temple in Jerusalem.
There were also smaller Sanhedrin's in every town in the Land of Israel, as well as a civil political-democratic Sanhedrin. These Sanhedrin's existed until the abolishment of the rabbinic patriarchate in about 425 C.E.
How quickly can the Temple be erected?
The Temple Institute has been working diligently for decades to bring to fruition the Third Temple. They have made the implements, vestments, training the priests, and other things necessary to construct the Third Temple but some things are quite literally in the hand of God.
The Temple Institute is a bit radical and is inclined to push up the timetable for messiah to come. For decades they have been introducing facets of the Third Temple to the world such as the cornerstone and certain sacrifices.
What many people are unaware is that the Mishkan, the Tabernacle of the Wilderness was found and verified by the Chief Rabbi in Israel. Certain miracles accompany the Mishkan and were present during the first Temple and some remained during the Second Period era, but not all. When the Tabernacle of the Wilderness was discovered it was sealed in a cavern until it was time. The Mishkan could be erected in 10 days.
The Third Temple would take longer to build although I have some concerns that I shall articulate later in this article.
The long and short of it is that >if< all the things biblically necessary for the Mishkan or Third Temple were available, the process could go very rapidly.
The Temple Mount literally fits in the palm of God's hand geographically and topographically.
The Temple Mount literally fits in the palm of God's hand geographically and topographically.
Three valleys form the hand: the Hinnom Valley, the Tyropoeon Valley, and the Kidron Valley. This valley structure forms the Hebrew letter 'shin' which represents God's Name: El Shaddai.
Depute over the Location of the Original Temple
Adding to the aura of mystery and confusion the serious academic studies and documentation on the real location of the Temple Mount as an alternative to Jewish tradition have been removed from the Internet. Could this be one of many fatal flaws that results in the Abomination of Desolation of the Third Temple? Time will tell.
Temple Institute Traditional Temple Point View
City of David Temple Site
Mount of Olives
You can clearly see the Eastern Wall that Messiah will triumphantly enter to establish His kingdom. Now, imagine you are at the bottom of that valley and are walking up towards Gethsemane. First you will reach the Church of all Nations where the flag of each country is represented.
At the time of Jesus this location was very important. A bridge went from the Temple Mount to the Mt of Olives just under where Gethsemane is situated. It was here, in a pit that the Red Heifer was sacrificed.
It is my belief that Jesus was crucified about this location due to its proximity to Gethsemane and that He would have direct sight past the courtyards into the Temple as He hung on the cross. As His characteristics parallel the Red Heifer. This is also in fulfillmentjust as the red heifer was slaughtered outside the camp, so was Jesus (Yshua) slaughtered outside the City of Jerusalem (Hebrews 13:12).
Mountain of Evil Counsel
It must be noted that to the south of the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives is a hill known as the Hill of Evil Counsel. This was the location where King Solomon kept his foreign wives of great influence. For 68 years the United Nations has inhabited this very hill.
We also have the strategic takeover of the Old City by the Pope. Sandwiched in between these two powerful influence's will be this Third Temple.
Do I see a fatal coincidence for the Third Temple?
In the City of David there is only one water source and that is the Pool of Siloam or Gihon Spring. There are a complex of large cisterns collecting water for the Temple Mount and the City of David but the Gihon Spring is the only fresh or living water. That is problematic for the traditional Temple Mount because there are certain requirements for fresh, living water.
Para Adumah the Red Heifer
A prominent Rabbi had come to town to speak. He was not dragged off the bema, nor pummeled with rotten fruit. Instead the assembly quietly listened to him and his message that associated the Parah Adumah, Red Heifer, with Messiah. I would say that many know the Jesus that you know. Jewish authorities teach that only nine red heifers were sacrificed from the time of Tabernacle worship until the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD on Tisha B’Av and that Messiah Himself will present the 10th and final Red Heifer.
I might know a thing or two about the ashes of the Red Heifer as I was involved in archeology in Qumran searching for the elusive earthen kalal (jar) with the ashes of the parah adumim (red heifers).
The Book of Hebrews confirms that it’s through the blood of Yshua the Messiah that we may be purified from all of our sins. The Parah Adumah, Red Heifer, was commanded by God in the Bible. The Red Heifer was to be burned.
The ashes of the red heifer were combined with spring water in a vessel kalal according to Numbers. It had the power to restore and cleanse. How it does this is a mystery known only to God Himself and is called a Chok meaning, loosely, it makes no sense.
I will not go into all the particulars of the requirement for this special Red Heifer except a few:
The Bible prescribes that the red cow be without blemish, that it should have no defect. It must be perfect in its redness. A blemish could be just two white hairs in one follicle. Since the 1990's many Red Heifers' have come and gone, each disqualified because they developed a blemish.
That it should never have been yoked Numbers 19:2
To be sacrificed the heifer must be between 3-4 years old. (The length of time of Jesus' ministry)
Waters of Sanctification
Weddings are a blueprint for God's relationship with His people. This was true at the giving of the Torah, throughout scripture until the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. Is it any wonder that Jesus ' first miracle would occur at a marriage in Cana. You have probably read John 2 many times and your eyes just glossed over a significant verse:
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews (some versions say waters of sanctification).
Jesus told told them to fill the clay jars with these waters of sanctification, these were the water from the Red Heifer used for ritual cleansing, and then:
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
The Waters of Sanctification were the most holy water in Israel with the power to cleanse anything that had become defiled. Jesus was demonstrating that He had power of this holy water to the degree He could turn it into wine.
Concerns about the Third Temple
A Graphene Temple?
Imagine a people who have build an impressive global edifice ending with both completely annihilated. If this people were considering a new edifice would they not consider using a new state-of-the-art impregnable material that could withstand anything? Furthermore, this material is complimentarily as a communication system, and also holds magical properties that might restore to this modern building the manifestations found in the Solomon's (First) Temple. This material can also be grown which means that it is both sustainable and is alignment with God's directive not to use hewn stones for His altar. An altar is not the Temple but the prohibitions were nevertheless observed.
Commercial production of grapheme, natures hexagonal shape, makes this the perfect single layered carbon substance for a prefabricated Temple in the manner of the two other temples. Graphene does not occur naturally, it must be produced.
An essential element in Solomon's construction of the Temple was the miraculous shamir stonecutter. In instructing His people how to make the permanent altar to God, the Torah says, "do not build it out of cut stone" (Ex. 20:22). A Jewish commentator, the Rashi, comments on this verse that iron, the material of deadly weapons, should not be used to shape the stones of the Temple, the essence of which is peace. The shamir disappeared after the destruction of the Temple. One glance of the supernatural shamir could carve great stones. Ancient commentaries describe how the passage of the shamir along the surface of a stone would cause it to split perfectly into two pieces.
So great was its penetrative powers that it could not be placed in anything else. As the legend goes the shamir first appears to Moses to cut the gemstones for the High Priests Ephod and then disappeared. The rulers of the Canaanites and other nations realized the value of the shamir, but they were never able to locate it. Solomon went to great lengths to obtain the shamir, even to the point of contacting demons.
This one legend relates that Solomon consulted the king of the demons and actually conscripted demons in the Temple construction. Back to the shamir, the angel of the sea had given the shamir to a bird where Solomon captured it. If this is the case, then this action allows a gateway for territorial and familiar spirits to occupy the same grounds and Temple habitations.
As was its nature the shamir disappeared after the destruction of the Second Temple in the Common Era. Many Jewish sources also maintain that Solomon was an accomplished magician and there is quite a bit of evidence supporting that theory.
In fact, using magic to do something is actually conscripting supernatural powers. Using demons to build the temple was not a good thing.
That Penetrating Glance
By definition, a supernatural creature made by God to perform specific miracles cannot be explained rationally.
In this spirit, the glance of the shamir that could split wood and stone might be explained by:
Production of high or low frequency waves that could resonate the molecular structure of materials and disrupt them,
Production of confluent light rays as a laser beam,
Two scholars, Immanuel Velikovsky and Frederic Jueneman suggested that the shamir was a radioactive substance. They reason that a leaden box would be the most logical means to sagely contain such a highly energetic radionucleotide. Thus, the "glance" of the shamir may have been alpha radiation. Alpha radiation is a high energy particle, which could destroy or discolor whatever is exposed to it. The reported weakening of the powers of the shamir in the course of time to the point of inactivity possibly indicates radioactive decay and half-life of its former radioactive potency.
As the green color it could have been any number of ancient stones from copper mines, malachite (known today for its radioactive properties) or verdigris or a combination of stones with radioactive properties.
Carved in Stone
If the ink used to write on the stones contained lead, a graduated discoloration would be highlighted on the gems after exposure to the shamir. Other gems, such as opals, are silicates containing water of crystallization. Exposure to alpha radiation disintegrates these crystals by releasing the chemically bound water, which volatizes without residue. That means, not even a splinter would be lost, leaving a cloudy or granular texture.
Essence of Shamir
The shamir had no physical limitations. It could effortlessly penetrate the hardest materials, and yet it was preserved in a basket of lead, attesting to its other than natural origin.
Legend relates the concept that a softer substance may have the ability to pierce a harder one. For example, the stone that David flung at Goliath pierced the giant's helmet and killed him Samuel I 17:49. The shamir, too, had no physical limitations. It could effortlessly penetrate the hardest materials, and yet it was preserved in a basket of lead (a soft metal), attesting to its other than natural origin.
In the Book of Kings 6:7, it is written: "For the house, while it was in the building, was built of stone made ready at the quarry; and there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house while it was being built." Legend tells us: "The stones moved of their own accord; they flew and rose up by themselves, setting themselves in the wall of the Temple and erecting it."
Another legend, the Shamir readied the stones, so that the stones emerged hewn from the quarry, ready for placement in Solomon's Temple. Solomon remembered the biblical injunction: "....if you make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stones; for if you lift up your tool upon it, you have polluted it." Exodus 20:25
If one considers what Exodus 20 actually says very carefully, it is evident that it does not say an iron tool, but rather, it is a prohibition against using any tool whatsoever. The verse prohibits the use of hewn stone on an altar and therefore the use of any kind of tool is forbidden, not just iron tools. The only way that one could comply with this directive is to use stones in their natural state without dressing them in any way. Since the stones for the temple were dressed at the quarry, they certainly were not produced in compliance with the mandate of Exodus 20. Therefore, this regulation only applies to altars made of stone.
Another ancient texts tell of a very special tool which can cut stone using no energy apart form the sun, cutting through stone without noise, being able to melt it into any desired forms like a potter with clay, and the uncanny fine craftsman's tool for inscribing small gems with any cuts. The device was used to make all of the fine stonework in antiquity, and these tools leave marks of high heat like lasers, and vitrified surfaces and color changes on the stones as induced by high temperatures.
Some ancient texts are understood that demons assisted the building of Solomon's Temple full stones that had not been split by normal means, using metal implements by the shamir.
One ancient commentary view this story as allegory, and that the various demons, birds, etc. all refer to philosophers and religious ones who spent their time in seclusion in the desert contemplating matters of secrets and mysticism.
Man Telling God
The attitude David had telling God he would build Him a dwelling place is the same as the Blockchains launch of the beast system, fierce determination to change the world in their time, not God's. Now we see the Temple Institute conducting a mock dedication of the sacrificial altar.
With rumors of an underground synagogue being portrayed as a subterranean Temple of which only circumstantial evidence is provided. Whether it be a Levite, Red Heifer, Temple vessel or instrument of any kind they all must be cleansed with the Waters of Sanctification containing the nine previous parah adumah's and the new red heifer meeting the requirements.
Is Third Temple an Egel, Golden Calf?
May I have a word? Idolatry. Of late, I am hearing much about the idolatry for wanting the Third Temple and sins of the Jews.
First cast out the beam from your eye, and then you will see clearly to cast out the splinter from the eye of your brother. Matthew 7:5
Christianity has marked every place where Jesus walked or did anything with an altar of idolatry. Meanwhile, the words of Jesus Christ have been abandoned or ignored by the many who hope for His grace and mercy when they go through the pearly gates.
We need to be about our Father's business and emulate Jesus Christ because He has anointed you to preach good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives and release from darkness to the prisoners and to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of our God’s vengeance, to comfort all who mourn…Isaiah 61:1
After the Holy Spirit took me on this journey of the Third Temple I have severe reservations about its construction, but that said, it must be built because the Lord said it would be built. It may be a golden calf but the Lord will use it for His purposes and that will be for salvation. As for me, I am ready for evil to come to an end and to live in holiness and under righteousness for all eternity. If it takes a few intense years of suffering then I am ready when He is ready, and that my friends is the key. While we stand in wait, I encourage you all to pray and be repentant. Take up the mantle of this study for yourselves for your will discover it is a fascinating journey.
