Proof That The Jewish Temple Will Not Be Rebuilt
The Vision Of John: In the vision of John, in which he describes the holy city, new Jerusalem, following the arrival of the Kingdom of God, he says, "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it." - Revelation 21: 22. This means that the Jewish Temple will not be rebuilt before or after the return of Jesus Christ.
Why The Jewish Temple Will Not Be Rebuilt
Many Christians support the movement to rebuild the Jewish Temple, thinking that such is in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy, but this idea is contrary to the actual teachings of the New Testament Bible. The Jewish Temple will not be rebuilt, because God will not allow it to happen, and it is God that has prevented the rebuilding of the temple by allowing Mosques to be constructed there. Why, you ask? Because when Jesus Christ was put to death upon the cross, He became the Temple, after which no other temple is now acceptable to God. Therefore, God has prevented the reconstruction of the Jewish Temple, and has allowed Mosques to be built there, because the temple no longer has any meaning above Jesus Christ who has become the Temple to the living God. Any other temple is an affront to God, and reveals ignorance as to the true meaning of Jesus Christ. Before the arrival of Jesus Christ a temple was required to fulfill the sacrifices required by God, but after the death of Jesus, the temple is no longer required, because Jesus became the temple, the alter, and the sacrifice. No other temple or sacrifice is now acceptable to the Lord. Any attempt by Israel to rebuild the temple will be meet with failure. The day fast approaches when the nation of Israel will come to realize that Jesus Christ and the Messiah are one and the same, only they did not recognize Him when He walked amongst them so long ago in Jerusalem.
