The Dome of the Rock prophecy and the Third Temple prophecy do have EVERYTHING to do with the second coming of Jesus Christ. Daniel said that these events are set for the End-Time. We are not at the beginning of the church age… we are at the end. We are not at the beginning of human history… we are nearing the end! Be real!
To set a date for the second coming of Jesus Christ is foolish, for the Scripture clearly says, No man knows the day or the hour. Only God knows that. But God HAS set that day. He DOES know that day. He is working out all things here at the End-time in perfect accordance to that date.
With that being said, what can we learn about the second coming of Jesus by looking at these two amazing prophesies? Number one, we know that when Jesus does return, there will be a Third temple here already. Jesus will live in that Temple for a thousand years, and the sole of his foot shall be there forever. Ezekiel 43:7.
Number two, we have a problem: There is no temple there now!
But number three, the Bible has the answer! The Anti-Christ (Daniel 9:26,27) is going to build the Third Temple for Israel.
Number Four: This is very mysterious, for HE, the Prince of the People that shall come will be the Muslim Mahdi, their long-awaited world-wide ruler/leader.
Number five: The Third Temple will be completed in three and a half years. The Anti-Christ deceives Israel into believing he is their friend. But at that exact point, he turns against them and starts a war that ends at the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Number six: Construction on The Third Temple will begin in the year 2023.
Number seven: The Dome of the Rock presently abiding there will no longer be there.
How can we know all these facts? How can we be so sure? Because God cannot lie. God’s Word is true from cover to cover. Even the cover where it says “Holy Bible”. To say that the Bible is not true is to call God a liar. To say that God gave it but man messed it up is to say that God wasn’t able to preserve it to all generations (which he DID promise, Psalm 12:7) To say that the Bible is untrustworthy is to say that God is untrustworthy. Dangerous position to hold on judgment day.
