Half the Public Wants to See Holy Temple Rebuilt (Israel)
inn ^ | 7/18/10 | Hillel Fendel

Posted on 07/18/2010 12:35:37 PM PDT by Nachum

Half the Israeli public wants the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash) to be rebuilt. This is the main finding of a poll commissioned by the Knesset Television Channel and carried out by the Panels Institute.

The poll was taken in advance of this Tuesday’s national day of mourning, known as Tisha B’Av, on which the two Holy Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed, 2,000 and 2,500 years ago, respectively.

Forty nine percent said they want the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, while 23% said they do not. The remainder said they were unsure.

That's a pretty big "unsure" percentage. ...especially considering the politically well-informed and opinionated public.

Id like to see it rebuilt if for no other reason than to enjoy the islamos drown in their own frothing lather.

Dome of the rock has to go for that to happen, will be a pleasure watching it be demolished.

"Dome of the rock has to go for that to happen, will be a pleasure watching it be demolished."

They had their chance to take it out during the battle for Jerusalem of 1967, but opted afterwards to instead try "co-existence" with their warring neighbors.

Did the same thing when first entering the promised land with Joshua and those nations not obliterated became a thorn in their side - Hmmmmm. (Those people practiced child sacrifice, by the way.)

I’d say build around it and then use it for ritual
foot washing.

It already has happened. The Third Temple is the Body of Christ, the heavenly Jerusalem, the people of God among whom God dwells by His Spirit.

People who look for another masonry temple slight God's miraculous and marvelous achievements through the person, work, and grace of Jesus Christ. A number of these folks also yearn to see the re-establishment of animal sacrifices. You'd almost think the blood of Jesus Christ wasn't good enough to please them.

It’s a pity the Israelis did not dynamite and bulldoze Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock on the very same day they reconquered Jerusalem.

With all due respect to you, RJR_fan, you are confusing the Church with Israel.

The Church is and forever will be distinct from the nation, Israel. There will be a third temple in Jerusalem. The Bible says it’s true.

So, how will the Abomination that causes Desolation, going to happen, by the Anti-Christ and stops temple sacrifices, as Revelations says?

There needs to be a physical temple to have that happen.

Not annexing the Temple Mount was the biggest damn mistake Israel ever made. I get headaches thinking about it.

That is why people believe that the temple will be rebuilt.

You can not have the “Abomination that causes Desolation”, without a temple. It is the event where the Anti-Christ will declare himself God, inside the holiest place in the temple. He will cause whatever sacrifices are occurring to be stopped. This is in Revelations. What it says to me is that the Jewish people will become concerned enough about God to rebuild the temple and worship God as the Torah tells them.

It will just be a matter of time.

I love and endorse your tagline. There is a quiet reformation underway in the USA, as literally millions of families secede from the American state church.

Many of us, as we embrace a more Biblical epistemology, also embrace a more Biblical eschatology. We “attempt great things for God. Expect great things from God,” as William Carey, the post-millennial founder of modern Protestant missions, said.

It will be an Abomination to God if people sacrifice.
People must stop giving satan glory. There will be no war between God and satan... For crying out loud satan was a created by God...satan is in the pit.... once I learned that, my life became a whole lot easier.... Praise the Lord...

I'm all for the Beit HaMiqdash . . . so long as its done Halakhically. To incorrectly attempt such a thing would be disastrous beyond comprehension.

Odd thing: as I understand it, you don’t need a Temple to perform most of the Temple rituals. You just need an altar. And, for the korban pesach (a.k.a. H’Kadosh BBQ), the altar can be anywhere on the Temple Mount. There’s really no excuse to not have restored the korban pesach, at a minimum.

What exactly is the point of this? The article is from an Israeli news source, reporting on a poll of Israeli Jews. Israeli Jews, being Jews, could not care less about Jesus or what some Christians think. Our decision regarding whether to rebuild the Temple has Halachic and real politic concerns. Whether Christians think rebuilding the Temple is appropriate doesn't matter for squat.

Actually, I agree with you on that point. Christians who think that structure has significance are barking up the wrong tree, and squandering processor cycles on inappropriate red herrings.

Josephus reports that, on the temple's last Pentecost, the citizens of Jerusalem heard a vast angelic hoard making haste for the exits, and saying that they no longer had any reason for sticking around. The true, new, third temple can be found today, anywhere around the world where a few believers gather in the name of the Jewish messiah.

You are probably right. I am no expert, and I defer to the Gedolim on all issues. Certainly restored sacrifices of some kind would go along way towards disassociating Judaism with secular humanism and unitarian-universalism, with which it has unaccountably become confused in the past three centuries or so.

My one and only concern is that some people may attempt to replace the Halakhic Temple with some sort of ecumenical center, or build one as a "symbol of the nation" or some such thing.

I just hope I didn't give the wrong impression.

That is my understanding, as well.

OK, it is in Daniel.

“Then he* shall confirm a covenant with many for seven years. But in the middle of the seven years He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,”

Daniel 9:27

*the prince who is to come, from the prior verse

And

“So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

“And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.” (forty two months = 1/2 of seven years)

Rev 13:4-5

The prince who is to come IS the beast of Revelation.
