As near as I can tell, obama and other muslims like him understand that if the Temple is re-built, that's the piece of the puzzle that sets the stage for the final act. Given their beliefs, I'm not sure how that works out for them.
I think it's more than just a coincidence that the cosmos has put that piece of real estate under different management, thus locking the door to that final chapter.
Fascinating. I regret I didn't study these things more when I was younger. That sort of ignorance is not bliss.
At the suggestion of a friend, I just read 2 Thess Chapter 2. Try it out. I have made no conclusions yet other than it is true (but my imagination churns)!
About rebuilding the temple. The Jews missed a couple of prophecies, including Jesus. We might too. I would not be surprised that God has a way of fulfilling rebuilding the temple other than I envision. Might not be the literal stone temple we think of. It will be clear afterward. Or maybe as it develops.
You are not in darkness that the day should overtake you as a theif.
