The Nation of Israel today has forgotten their God and His mighty works. Today Israel depends on its own strong arm, its technology and its weapons to protect them.
They do not yet know that their secret weapon is not themselves but God. Yet God has not forgotten His people Israel.
Rabbis today are discussing how and when to re-institute the Sacrificial System. They know they need a Temple to do that.
The Rabbis want a Temple to be prepared for the coming Messiah. SOON, the Nation of Israel will again be saying…Where is the Lamb?
The ancient Sanhedrin was the Jewish Supreme Court and was composed of 71 of Israel’s most revered Torah scholars. Christ was taken before the Sanhedrin during His trial. They were disbanded after 70 A.D. when the Temple was destroyed.
Rabbis believe the restoration of the Sanhedrin will precede the coming of the Messiah, as only the Sanhedrin has the authority to crown the Messiah as the Jewish King.
In October 2004, 71 Jews were ordained to restore the Sanhedrin in the city of Tiberius.
The first and most important sacrifice in the new Temple must be a pure unblemished Red Heifer, as specified in the book of Numbers, chapter 19. It is only the ashes of the Red Heifer that can purify the Temple so the Jews can worship there.
Jewish scholar’s know that a total of nine unblemished Red Heifers have been born during the entire period of the first and second Temples. Since the destruction of the second Temple, no perfect Red Heifer has been born until this generation.
In the late 1990’s, two perfect Red Heifers were born in Israel, and a third on a ranch in Texas. It has been 2000 years since the last Red Heifer was found and sacrificed.
Today everything needed for the construction of a new Temple is in place. The instruments used for the animal sacrifices—the first legal Sanhedrin in 1600 years—the first perfect Red Heifers in 2000 years and a newly anointed Priesthood of Levites and Cohanes ready to serve with new ceremonial garments made according to Gods requirements in the Old Testament…AND most of all the ARK of the COVENANT.
The Israeli government stated years ago that they have the Ark of the Covenant and will place it into the new temple when it is built in its place of Destiny on the Temple Mount.
They also have the Chief Cornerstone ready to take its position. It was honed out of stone by the hands of stonemasons, as it would have been formed in the Old Testament.
Only the Temple is now missing but the Nation is ready to rebuild it today on the Temple Mount if a peace plan can be made with the Arab Nations.
The “Dome of the Rock” has been an obstacle, but scholars today believe the Dome of the Rock is not sitting on the exact spot of the old Temple and that the new Temple could be constructed nearby. WE have a more sure word to believe than scholars!
God clarifies this in Revelation 12:2, when He says that the end time Temple will not be built the same as the others before it. It will be missing the area devoted to the Court of the Gentiles.
What does all this mean…. That the Return of Christ is getting very close…maybe even during your lifetime?
Gods Prophetic time clock is the Nation of Israel and the City of Jerusalem…Gods fulfilled prophecies demand that He be feared and obeyed.
In 1948 Israel after 2,600 years took its place again among the nations of the earth and Jerusalem, the city of God, is now a cup of trembling for the world.
One of the greatest Old Testament Books to do a Bible Study with your Jewish friend is the Book of Zechariah. The book is all about the identity of Jesus their Messiah and HIS 2nd Coming to save the 1/3 REMNANT of the Nation of Israel from the nations of the world that encircle Jerusalem to destroy Israel.
Zechariah also describes the believing Remnant of Israel finally coming into the Promises of the Kingdom where Christ will reign on earth for 1,000 years.
Listen to God speak from His Prophetic Word about His People Israel from Chapter 14 in the Book of Zechariah.
“For I will gather ALL the nations against Jerusalem to battle and the city will be captured, the houses plundered…
Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle…
(Remember in Acts 1: 11 at the Ascension of Jesus the two Angels said: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into Heaven).
…And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
And you (the 1/3 REMNENT of Jews left alive) will flee by the valley of MY Mountains
Then the Lord (Jesus) MY God will come and the HOLY Ones (you and I) with HIM! (we come with HIM at HIS 2nd Coming)
And it will come about in that day that there will be no light, the luminaries will go out…but it will come about at evening time there will be light…(Christ’s coming in the sky)
I believe it is at this time that those Jews given a way out of Jerusalem through the valley created by the earthquake of Christ setting his feet on the Mt. of Olives, will LOOK UP and see Christ coming with His HOLY Angels and Us…and they will “Mourn for HIM whom they have Pierced”… recognizing their Messiah.
Then Zechariah 13: 9 will finally come true. God will have purged out 2/3rds of the unbelieving Nation of Israel. Leaving only the 1/3 believing REMNANT.
“ I will bring the 1/3 part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on MY Name,
(they will cry out the name Yeshua ….whose name means Salvation).
And I (Jesus) will answer them; I will say, they are MY people.
And they will say, The LORD is MY GOD.”
So I repeat GOD is not finished with Israel and GOD is not finished with you either!!!
