Temple Mount Faithful to Israeli Government:
Build the Temple Now; No Need to Wait for the Messiah
The Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem is again in the midst of critical events in Israel. The Temple Mount will continue to be like a "volcanic mountain" as long as the Israeli government is not removing the Arab-Islamic shrines from the Holy Temple Mount and allows them to continue to desecrate the Holy Mountain of the G‑d of Israel.
G‑d is expecting the government of Israel to immediately remove the enemy from the Temple Mount and to rebuild the Temple with no delay. The Arab-Islamic occupation of the Temple Mount and their presence upon the location of the Holy Temple, which is an abomination of the Name of G‑d, is soon to be finished under the judgment of G‑d.
Israel is now in the midst of the end-time, when the G‑d of Israel is fulfilling literally each of the end-time prophecies word by word. It is a true privilege to be born during such a significant G‑dly time. Hundreds of generations dreamed, desired and prayed to be born during such a great time. The prophets of Israel that prophesied about ‘this time’ thousands of years ago gave us all the details about G‑d’s end-time plan. Everyone should just open the Holy Book and recognize immediately that Israel today is a clear re-creation by G‑d to be the focus of all the end-time events for the entire world. What G‑d is doing with Israel during these exciting days is an opening and a condition for the redemption of all of humanity.
At the same time it is a very critical time in the history of Israel when the Arab-Islamic enemies of Israel with the backing (support) of so many powers all over the world are trying to stop what G‑d is doing within Israel at this special time. The present riots against Israel are a part of their efforts to remove Israel from the map of the world. They have no chance to fulfill even one iota of their evil desires. G‑d is in control and He is going to judge them terribly. Nothing can stop the Almighty G‑d of Israel in completing His exciting plans of end-time redemption with Israel and ‘through Israel’ for the entire world.
The most important and the climax of all of these exciting and godly end-time events is the rebuilding of the Temple of G‑d on the Temple Mount (Mt. Moriah), the place that He chose thousands of years ago to dwell among His people Israel and at this special time among all of His creation in Jerusalem. G‑d called His people to build the Temple (Exodus 25:8) with no delay and as we see Israel is very close to making this call of G‑d a reality in our lifetime. The G‑d of Israel called the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement to be His vessel for the fulfillment of this most major cause ever.
In this special end-time godly era when G‑d is revealing to His people Israel and to the entire world that His prophetic Word is being fulfilled literally and so clearly, it is so strange and not comprehensible how there is confusion and mistaken ideas among some people regarding the rebuilding of the Temple of G‑d and the coming of Mashiach Ben David. It is even worse when people share their mistaken ideas with others who live outside of Israel and advise them to make the same fallible mistakes. These mistaken ideas are standing against the Word of G‑d and His commandments to Israel regarding the rebuilding of His Holy Temple. It is our duty to explain the correct godly principles of the building of the Temple of G‑d especially during this critical time.
Just recently we read an interview with the former executive-director of the Temple Institute, Yehuda Glick, that brought forth incorrect information and details regarding the building of the Third Temple that do not correspond with the commands of G‑d. Such ideas are actually an abomination of both the Word of G‑d and His Holy Hill.
What is most appalling is when, according to this interview, Mr. Glick said that the al-Aksa Mosque does not need to be removed in order for the Third Temple to be built. "Al-Aksa can stay. It is not even on the Temple Mount proper. But we intend to just build over the Dome of the Rock. We might be able to find a way to include it in the Third Temple." For your basic information, the Dome of the Rock was constructed by Muslims on the site of the Holiest Temple and upon the rock of Abraham and Isaac. Al-Aksa mosque was built inside the perimeter of the Holy Temple Mount.
We were surprised to read these strange and incorrect ideas that are in opposition to the Word of G‑d throughout the Tanach (Bible). According to the law of G‑d on the Temple Mount should be, can be and will be again only one house: the House of G‑d, the Holy Temple, and not any other building, especially not a strange pagan shrine. Throughout the history of the biblical Jewish Kingdom, foreigners that occupied the Land of Israel placed their idols inside the Jewish Temple or built their shrines on the location of the Temple. All of them were an abomination to the Name of G‑d and a desecration of His Holy Hill and were removed from the Temple Mount under the judgment of G‑d and the same will be done now by the G‑d of Israel to all that were built as the result of an imperialistic Arab-Islamic occupation of the Land of Israel.
As we said, the Dome of the Rock was built by the Muslims on the most holy place of the Temple, the Holy of Holies. This is the place where Israelis and even Jewish priests were not allowed to enter. Only the high-priest was permitted to enter this holy place once a year on the holy day of Yom Kippur. All the area of the Temple itself was forbidden for any strangers to enter there. On the inner-wall that surrounded the Temple was a stone banner engraved in both Hebrew and Greek that stated according to the commandment of G‑d: "the foreigner that will come close to this holy place will die". More than this, even Israelites that were not clean had to purify themselves by immersion into a mikveh and purify themselves through the ashes of the red heifer before they could enter the Holy Temple Mount.
The Temple Mount has been desecrated for a long time by the Arab foreigners that occupied the Temple Mount in the 7th century CE and built their shrines on the holy hill of G‑d against the Word of G‑d. The Dome of the Rock was built as we said on the location of the Holy of Holies, which attempted to prove and to show their domination over the G‑d and the people of Israel and all over the world. G‑d returned His people Israel back to the Promised Land, to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in order to stop this terrible abomination of His Name and the desecration of His Holy Hill. G‑d is expecting the Israeli government to do what His people did in the past when His Holy Mountain was desecrated by foreign shrines: remove the Arab Islamic foreign shrines from His Holy Hill without delay. It should be done only by an official Israeli government that will demonstrate that the people of Israel trust the G‑d of Israel and His Word and do not fear any human or physical power. These shrines can be carried to Mecca from where they originated by the Muslim occupiers.
The ideas of Yehuda Glick are not only incorrect but also are offensive against G‑d and His Holy Word and no one in Israel will accept them. They represent weakness which is a result of the situation of the presence of the Muslims on the Temple Mount and fear from more than a billion Muslims instead of trusting in the Almighty G‑d of Israel who promised His people that He will always stand with them and that they should not fear any worldly power.
Mr. Glick’s ideas are also a result of misunderstanding the words of Isaiah who prophesied: "My house will be a house of prayer for all nations." (Isaiah 56:7) The meaning of these words is abundantly clear: "My house" says the G‑d of Israel, will be a house of prayer for all nations and not any other foreign house. More than this, only "the sons of the strangers, that join themselves to the L‑rd, to serve him, and to love the name of the L‑rd, to be his servants, every one that keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and all that hold fast to my covenant, even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." (Isaiah 56:6,7)
The prophet Isaiah clarified this prophesy with even further details. He is speaking about just one house, the House of the G‑d of Jacob, that all of the nations will flow toward to learn His ways:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the L‑rd’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the L‑rd, to the house of the G‑d of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for from Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of the L‑rd from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the L‑rd.’" (Isaiah 2:2-5)
We must clarify another important point. According to Glick, the Temple will be built ‘… when the Messiah shows up … it could well be tomorrow, but it might be another 100 years, or even 400 years.’ However, none any of the Scriptures show that the Temple should be built only when the Mashiach comes. In the Torah G‑d commands His people Israel: "Build me a temple and I will dwell among you" (Exodus 25:8) with no condition that it should be built after the coming of Mashiach Ben David. The first Temple was built without any condition to wait for the coming of the Mashiach. The second Temple was built after the destruction of the first Temple and the regathering of the Jews back to their land by G‑d with no waiting for the coming of the Mashiach. In a similar time to our era when the people of Israel did not want to rebuild the Temple and perhaps were waiting for the coming of the Messiah, the prophet Haggai called the people of Israel to listen and obey the Word of G‑d to immediately rebuild the Temple:
"Thus speaks the L‑rd of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the L‑rd’s house should be built. Then the word of the L‑rd came by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, yourselves, to dwell in your well timbered houses, whilst this house lies waste? Thus speaks the L‑rd of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the L‑rd’s house should be built?. Thus says the L‑rd of hosts; Consider your ways, Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, says the L‑rd." (Haggai 1:2-4,7)
Even the Jerusalemite Talmud indicates that when the Mashiach comes, the Temple already has been rebuilt and he will go up to the roof of the Temple, calling to the people of Israel: "Awake! The time of your redemption has come!"
According to the prophets of Israel, three events should take place before the coming of Messiah Ben David:
- First, is the regathering of the twelve tribes of Israel from the four corners of the world to the Promised Land.
- The second event is the rebirth of Israel as a nation and again as the kingdom of G‑d in the Land of Israel.
- The third event is the rebuilding of the Temple on the Temple Mount in the same location as the first and second Temples.
The first two events have already come to pass in Israel during this exciting time of redemption. Now the third Temple should be immediately built, says the G‑d of Israel, with no delay and then the Messiah will come.
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement is faithful to the Word of G‑d and His expectations from the people of Israel. We shall not rest until Israel removes the enemy from the Holy Temple Mount as the G‑d of Israel expects her to do and the Temple is rebuilt in our lifetime. The third Temple should be built immediately by Israel to be a House of Prayer for the people of G‑d, Israel, and for all the nations. Everyone, both in Israel and in the entire world, is called to stand with the Faithful Movement of G‑d and to help her to build the Temple of G‑d on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem and to prepare the people of Israel to again be a biblical nation fulfilling the mission in which the G‑d of Israel anointed her to be: "a holy nation, a kingdom of priests and a light to the nations" Exodus 19:5,6).
In G‑d we trust!!
