New Temple in Israel

Post  A Bible Student on Sun Jan 04, 2015 3:29 pm

New testament scripture indicates that there will be a temple in Israel in the future.

2 Thes 2:3-4
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
In order for the 'son of perdition' to sit in the temple of God, there needs to be a temple.  The word temple is not the entire temple complex, but the inner sanctuary, the holy of holies.  As Christians with holy spirit residing in themselves, they are also noted as being the inner sanctuary of God.  In order for someone to sit in the sanctuary and declare himself to be God, however, it would have to be a temple made with hands.  This is confirmed since the timing of this event is after Christians are gone.

Rev 11:1-2
And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.  But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
John saw a vision of the future temple.  Again the word temple is the word for the inner sanctuary, not the entire temple complex.  But the outer areas are noted as being there, just not measured.

There has been much work done already in preparation for the new temple.  (Ref)
