I have someone on my FB wall who wants people to sign a petition to get the temple built on the temple mount.  I look at it and I want to cry.  I want to shout out that the temple is not where God is anymore.  A rebuilt temple has nothing to say to Christians.  The land is NO longer important anymore.  What is important is do we know JESUS.  But People are so desperate to manipulate and make prophecy happen.  Prophecy will happen in Gods time, not ours. 

They read into prophecy about Gods intervention but missed the part that also says .

Rev 17: 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Rev 13: 3-4 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads

Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

It says that the world will wonder after the beast.  Which means both Jew and Gentile will receive the mark.  “ALL” that dwell upon the earth shall worship him”  The only ones that don’t are those whose  names are already written in the book of life. Those who receive don’t get saved.  It does not say all with the exception of a few.   There is so much pinning on some end time revival that people have lost sight of those who need saving now.  Many can’t wait and may not even be alive when the end comes.

We are not dealing with some Hollywood action film where the hero kills the stunt extras and everyone goes home at the end of the day.  We are dealing with life and death.  Life in God is very real and death for the lost is unthinkable.

Promises that if the temple gets built this will lead the way for Jews to be saved, but we can’t depend on this. As Christians we should have a passion to see souls saved .  Snatching them as smouldering embers from the fire, not caring if they are jews Moslem gentiles or whatever.  Until a person sees himself lost and damned they will never seek to be saved from that predicament.  As Long as Christians bless the damned in their sin, the lost will see no reason to forsake it.  The whole philosophy of people trying to bless Israel in whatever way they can has become a curse because it keeps Jews in the dark about their own predicament.  Keeping the lost soothed  and comfortable on their way to hell is not blessing anyone. 


The end comes with fire blood and death, not peace and prosperity.  Are we to give a nod of approval to ministries that fund vast sums into ventures which have nothing to say to the saving of the lost?  Arguments and debate ensue by Christians over the validity of a piece of ground that will go the same way as London Washington and Paris.  The Bible Promises a new Heaven and earth so the old must go.    

We have Christians demanding that Israel have sole rights to a property in the Middle East to the exclusion of all others.  People bicker and fight over the legitimacy while souls are lost and the land becomes just another site to bury the dead.    People want to bless Israel so we excuse ourselves from telling them the gospel, and the sad reality that multitudes as being lost just seems to go unnoticed.  The heart wrenching cry that seem to have our priorities focus more on what is the earthly instead of the heavenly.  We have become so used to a false message of prosperity, seed faith, claiming and decreeing.  Claiming victories over demonic forces in spiritual warfare exercises which banishes them to some abyss.  People forget that it is God that will allow the nations to be deceived by them.  The final end time delusion is one that God himself permits.

2 Th 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness

In the end if unrighteousness is what people want then that is what they will get.

There can be no doubt that this is a famine that has taken hold in today’s world.  We have a land full of Bibles and yet people will not feast on what it says.  They have knowledge of it but do not know its power.


Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

If Israel somehow gets to build this temple on the temple mount and to all accounts this could be a looming possibility, the temple will become the increasing focus of religious fervour.  Sadly it will not see a greater focus on Jesus as the true messiah.  But a greater delusion and practices as Jews become increasingly focused on the temple.  Ecumenicalism will become ripe as many within the Christian community will run to play some meaningful part in the temples development.  Religious fervour will see a reworked gospel which accommodates the temple.  As the Vatican is to Rome so the temple will be to the Jews.  Sadly many within the Christian community will be seen running to legitimise both..  Trying to save the lost among the jews will suddenly become even harder.

Such is the looming deception which lies before us that multitudes will be deceived.  If the lost want to build a temple let them get on with it.  There is a true temple to build.  The only temple worth building , which is the one established by divine hands and trully dwelt by the Holy Spirit.

We should take no rejoicing in this but our hearts cry is that righteousness will be established.  Gods name vindicated.  His Holiness exalted.  His peace proclaimed.  Souls will be saved and delivered from the fire.  Gods Love will be the universal currency.  The Kingdom Jesus established will be finally realised in a city situated in a city foursquare.  And Truth a lasting heritage to all who name the name of God. 

As Christians we often find ourselves crying out” HOW LONG OH LORD”, then we are reminded there may be one more soul.  “THEN STAY YOUR HAND OH LORD UNTIL THE HARVEST IS RIPE”  To this end this should be our goal.
