Last Days' Temple of God (SD56)

Exo 23:14, 17-19 "Three times you shall keep a feast to Me in the year... Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord GOD. You shall not offer the blood of My sacrifice with leavened bread; nor shall the fat of My sacrifice remain until morning. The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring into the house of the LORD your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk."
    God ordained that the feasts and sacrifices before the house of the Lord. During the time in the wilderness and conquest of Canaan Land, the tabernacle was the house if the Lord. After the establishment of the nation of Israel with Jerusalem as its capital, God allowed King Solomon to build the Temple of God. Because of the disobedience and abominations of the Israelites, the temple and Jerusalem were devastated by the Babylonians.
    The Persian King Cyrus sent the Israelites back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple of God, which was later renovated into a big temple known as Herod's Temple. At the death of our Lord Jesus, the veil in the Temple was torn representing the departure of God from the temple and the end of Judaism.

1. Born Again Christians
1Cor 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
    Until Rapture when the Holy Spirit will go back to heaven, the physical body of every born again Christian is the temple of God for God will not dwell in any other building or structure.

John 2:19-21 Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?" But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
    The physical body of our Lord Jesus Christ was the temple of God, and immediately after His resurrection, He gave the Holy Spirit to His disciples, thus making the physical body of every Christian to become the temple of God. During this period of grace, Christians are now the temple of God and God will not dwell in any other temple.
John 20:22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit."

2. Temple of the Antichrist before Rapture
2 Thess 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (Rapture) will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Warning - Any temple of God built during the period of grace i.e before Rapture will become the temple of Antichrist (Satan). Unfortunately, unlearned Christians, blind Jews led by the Temple Institute will be building the so-called temple of God for the Antichrist as soon as possible for they have already prepared all the utensils, garments, etc. to build and operate the temple.

3. Temple of God in the Millennium Rule of Jesus
Isa 2:3 Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,  to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
    I believe that our Lord Jesus will build His temple (Ezekiel's temple) during His Millennium Rule where He will teach the people.

Last Days Major Wars (SD55)

   3 more Major Wars to come

1. World War 3 before Rapture  - where a quarter of all mankind will be killed by war, hunger, etc.
Rev 6:7-8 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
     This 4th Seal is before the 6th Seal which is Rapture. This is the same war as Mat 24:6-7, Mark 13:7-8, Luke 21:20-24, Dan 11:40-44, etc.
Mark:13.7-8 "But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows."

2. After Rapture - Battle of Armegaddon when the whole world will attack Jerusalem.
Eze 38:8 "After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely."
    The whole world will attack the present day Israel, which were formed into a nation in 1948. Since then Israel are living in the shadow of wars and insecurity (not dwelling in safety)
    After WW3, the Antichrist will sign a 7 year peace Treaty to allow all Israelites (Jews) to migrate back to Israel to rebuild the temple of God and also Jerusalem, which was completed destroyed during WW3. As the Jewish Priesthood rebuilds the temple of God, the Jews build their new homes in Jerusalem and Israel. For the first time since the reformation of Israel in 1948, they live in security and peace.
    At the dedication of the temple of God, the Antichrist will proclaim himself god while seated on the mercy seat in the most holy place.
    At Rapture, the brightness of the coming of our Lord will kill the Antichrist.

Rev 11:2-3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."
    After the death of the Antichrist, the 2 witnesses will appear in Jerusalem and prevent any Gentile from entering the temple. He will call calamities upon the people dwelling on earth to afflict all those with the mark of the beast. This will be the 7 bowls/trumpets judgment.   
    The 6th bowl will be the battle of Armegaddon (Rev 16:12-16), when the whole world will attack Jerusalem but before its defeat our Lord will deliver the Israelites standing on Mount Olive and kill all its enemies.
    Almost all OT Prophecies of Endtime war refer to this Battle of Armegaddon.

3. Final Battle or Battle of Gog and Magog after the Millennium Rule of Jesus.
Rev 20:7-9 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.
    All those with the mark of the Beast will follow Satan and fight against our Lord Jesus.

The Coming of Jesus (SD54)

3 times Jesus will come to earth

1. At Rapture we will meet the Lord in the cloud.
Mat 24:29-31 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
    At Rapture, trumpets will sound to herald in the King of kings and the Lord of lords. At the end of the trumpet, all eyes will see our Lord Jesus Christ coming in the cloud. At the twinkling of the eye, all His elects will be caught up to meet Him in th cloud.
1 Thess 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

2. Jesus will stand on Mount Olive to deliver the Israelites during the battle of Armegaddon (after Rapture)
Zechariah:14.4-5 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake In the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the LORD my God will come, and all the saints with You.
    After the Israelites have fled into the valley, our Lord's brightness will kill all the enemies surrounding Jerusalem that the tongues dissolve in their mouths, etc.
Zac 14:12 And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

3. Jesus Millennium Rule or Second Coming, when our Lord Jesus will come to establish His rule on earth.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
    After that our Lord will come down to Jerusalem to establish His Millennium Rule so that all nations can come to worship Him. He will teach them His words. This is normally referred to as His second coming.
Mic 4:2 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Unfortunately, many unlearned in Endtime prophecies will lump these three events as one, thus confusing themselves and their loss of interest in Endtime prophecies. Meanwhile, opportunists (false prophets) will proclaim Jesus coming or end of the world at every serious calamity or unusual sign.

Jerusalem in the Last Days (SD53)

2 Sam 5:5, 7 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years over all Israel and Judah... Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion (Jerusalem) that is, the City of David.
    Since David's conquest of Jerusalem 3 thousand years ago, it had been the capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Though Israel and Jerusalem had been conquered many time for their disobedience, abominations and sins, yet whenever they can form the nation of Israel again, Jerusalem has always been the capital except in 1948.
Jer 9:11, 13 "I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins, a den of jackals. I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant..." And the LORD said, "Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it"

     Jerusalem before Rapture
Before Rapture, Jerusalem will soon be conquered by its enemies during the coming World War 3 as God's vengeance for the many abominations committed by Israel.
Luke 21:20, 22, 24 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near...For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled... And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (Rapture)."
    Because of the abominations and sins (PLO-Israel Peace Treaty, the giving away of part of the Promised Land for peace and the approval of homosexuality) committed by Israel, the destruction of Jerusalem before Rapture will be God's vengeace for their disobedience.

     Jerusalem after Rapture
At the battle of Armegaddon, when all the nations gather to attack Jerusalem, our Lord will deliver Jerusalem and the Israelites by splitting Mount Olive and then annihilate the enemies. (Read also MA22 - Eze 38-39 is not WW3)
Zec 14:4, 12 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south... And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

Jerusalem in Millennium Rule
Zec 8:3 "Thus says the LORD: 'I will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the LORD of hosts, the Holy Mountain.'
    After our Lord Jesus had delivered Jerusalem, He will return to Jerusalem (after the Israelites has cleansed the land by burying all the dead bodies and bones) to establish His Millennium Rule.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
