Prophecy Sign: The future third Jewish TemplePerhaps the fight over the present Temple Mount is for naught. If it can be shown to the Jewish people that their new Temple could be built in an entirely different location, which is in fact the historic location of the previous two temples, then watch how fast the walls go up. Monies, plans and temple implements are already locked away for such a day.
I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. Revelation 11:1-2 NIV
Prayers to God in the wrong spot?
It has been called the most contested plot of land in the world — the fissure at which three major faiths come together, and break apart. There have been holy wars fought over it and holy writ foretelling of battles yet to come. It’s Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.
But what if history got it wrong? What if the spot where Solomon built the first Jewish Temple, and Herod built the second, was actually about 600 feet to the south, in a place known as the ancient City of David? To suggest that the traditional Temple Mount, where Jews have prayed at the Wailing Wall and where Muslims pray at the Dome of the Rock, is actually not the holy ground they believe it to be, is sacrilege to many historians and archaeologists, not to mention clerics.
Is the PA Trying to Renew Temple Mount Terror?
The Palestinian Authority (PA) led by Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah party incited a wave of terrorist attacks late last year by falsely claiming that Israel was trying to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. Now, after a brief lull, that incitement is back in full force, with the three top PA religious repeating the claims this month alone.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) revealed that in the last several days, the PA Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Hussein, Abbas's adviser on Religious andIslamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash, as well as PA Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is have all echoed the claims heard last October and November which elicited a string of high-profile attacks. Hussein last Thursday claimed that Israel hopes "to build the alleged Temple on the ruins of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque," in a reference to the Third Temple to be built on the holiest site in Judaism, which the PA has aggressively claimed to be Muslim-only in an attempt to erase roughly 3,000 years of Jewish history.http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/191472#.VOZg1vnF-T2
