Tabernacle of David & the Third Temple

 

clip_image002

Many are waiting for the Jews to rebuild the 3rd

temple, so that the antichrist will go into it, and

declare himself god, thus identifying himself. But,

is it really going to be a temple that they put up?

clip_image004

The impression of the timing of the 3rd temple from

2 prophecies:

1. Dan 11:31   And arms shall stand on his part, and they [forces of the vile leader from verse 21] shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily [sacrifice], and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.

*** note there is a sanctuary in existence for the abomination to occur. This was fulfilled once by Antiochus Epiphanes. But Antiochus only put a pig on the altar to commit abomination.

The future antichrist will go further than this:

11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god,

2. Ezechiel’s description of a future temple (Chapters 40-47). It is very elaborate, with miraculous elements to it, such as healing waters.

**** The healing waters would have to manifest after the arrival of the Messiah.

It is a fact that Jews in Jerusalem are preparing to rebuild a 3rd temple.

They even have a Temple Institute to organize it. They are preparing the sacred vessels and vestments, and many other items.

But will what they have available, by the time of the antichrist, be such a building?

Scripture does mention another structure that has not appeared yet:

It is the Tabernacle of David.

Let’s take a close look at what this tabernacle was:

2Sa 6:17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

** The tabernacle David “pitched” was a tent.

Isa 16:5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he [Messiah] shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

** this has a Messianic tone to it

Amo 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

*** This and surrounding verses suggest the last days. The structure is “fallen” and will be “raised up” again.

Act 15:16 After this I… will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:

*** this is a reference to Amos 9:11-12.

Notice that the structure will be “built again,” or rebuilt. So this is a reference to the first tabernacle, not a new structure.

So what did the tabernacle of David look like?

It was a tent, with the ark of the covenant in it.

This can be interpreted on 2 levels:

1. physical – they only need 2 elements: a tent, and the ark of the covenant. The ark would only be brought out if Israel had been convinced that there was peace and safety, and Messiah was imminent or present.

2. spiritual – the tent represents the human heart, and the ark represents the covenant that is kept by the devout person.

A closer look at the Amos prophecy:

Amo 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

Amo 9:12   That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen [gentiles], which are called by my name, says the LORD that does this.

Notice that there are gentiles that are “called by my name.” This would indicate that Christians are present. So the spiritual interpretation could have been fulfilled at the time of Christ.

Since the prophecy is to rebuild the tabernacle of David, by the time it is rebuilt, it has apparently fallen.

So, another interpretation is that this refers to the last days, not the time of Christ, and that the Church has “fallen” and needs to be rebuilt.

clip_image006

But that does leave the physical interpretation of the Tabernacle of David!!

clip_image008

Alternatively, it is possible that the Jews will really

build Ezekiel’s temple in anticipation of the

Messiah, knowing that He will add the miraculous

elements to it.

When the Antichrist violates the temple, this will temporarily pollute it, and make it unusable.

This interpretation may be possibly supported by this passage in Daniel:

Dan 12:11   And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Dan 12:12 Blessed [is] he that waits, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Between 1290 days and 1335 days is a gap of 45

days. Maybe it takes 45 days to clean and purify

the temple.  Just in time for Hanukkah!

So what do you think?

  1. […] here for […]

  2. Hello,

    I know when the New Testament talks about a temple it is referring to the Church or the saints or Christians. All three words mean the same thing. See 1 Peter 2. But I do believe a physical temple will be rebuilt but it will have nothing to do with God.

    Love,

    John

  3. Hi Marianne,

    There is no need for temple to be built in order to restore sacrificial system, burnt offerings can be brought without temple being physically built.

    Third Temple already exists on spiritual level, until it “falls down” from heaven and becomes visible on spiritual dimension, then all that is left is to complete building it on physical level.

    What could possibly convince Jews and the world to allow restoration of sacrficial system before the temple is built (or in the process of building? The answer is – terrible calamities and judgments coming to the world during 7 years of tribulation; Jews will finally begin to fear EL SHMAYA (God of heavens) instead of Muslims.

    When Noah sent out the dove 3 times to find dry land it was an allusion to the 3 Holy Temples, see the hint!

  4. Good observations! I believe that the antichrist will stop the sacrifices in a real temple and riegn for 42 months. Why? Its says so in revelation:
    1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood,[a] saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

    Yes this could be a tent(ative) temple, or it may well be that the peace treaty which Barack Obama signs will be allow the temple to be rebuilt adjacent to the Dame of the Rock-I.E the court of the gentiles.

  5. We so miss it. When Paul told the believers that their body was the Temple, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem still stood. They all knew it was a most sacred place, a place that you needed to remove your shoes in order to go in, and have a ritual “mikveh” before entering. No, Paul was referring to the fact, that just like the temple, they needed to be careful and not violate God’s teachings with impure things. They were the host of the Holy One.
    If anyone wants to see a defamation of the Temple, look no further than the Maccabees they were fighting for a Holy Temple. The king had gone in and violated it with a pig on the altar. He forbad Sabbath worship, Torah readings, and circumcision. But the violation of the Temple was his slaughter of a pig on the altar, proclaiming himself to be god.
    Hum … pig on the altar? Well, if you haven’t read the Maccabees it’s a good time to do so now. We are getting close to the time of Hanukkah, time to dedicate the Temple.
    And just in case you missed it, they are building an exact replica of the Temple in Jericho. This is so the Priests and Levites can have training and be ready. Full scale replica … with all of the enactment.
    I find it interesting that it is in Jericho, this is where Joshua (also the name of Jesus in Hebrew) brought the people into the land. In the 2nd Maccabees it says that the Ark was removed by Jeremiah and taken to a cave which was sealed … just on the other side of the Jordan river, right by Jericho.

    • hi Barb

      That is interesting about the temple in Jericho. I had heard that they were making one, but I did not know where. Thanks for that, I will look into it.

      If you have any good links to it, please send them to me. I would like to see a picture of what they are using.

  6. The will build the 3rd Temple, But the Anti-Christ will set in it,as God. Jesus was the Temple of God, His own Spirit, the
    Holy Ghost conceived Him and took on Flesh, as Paul said. “As the Children were partakers of flesh and Blood, He (God) took it upon Himself (God Did) Jesus is never coming back to this Earth, He will receive the Church in the Air, as told We will rise up to meet the Lord in the Air and forever be with him, in the Air. This earth will burn or be desolved as Psm75-2-3 states: “When I
    (Jesus Christ) receive the Congregation or Church, The Earth and
    the Inhavitants (People who don”t receive the Lord in the Air)
    there of shall be desolved, just as Peter stated, the Earth and
    the works thereof shall be desolved.This Earth is reserved unto
    Fire and Perdition (distruction) of ungodly Men (They’ve got the Bombs ready)

    • hi Ruth

      My impression was that since the new Jerusalem would be descending from heaven to earth, that we would still inhabit this earth, after God renews it.

      Is that what you mean?

      You said Jesus would never come back to earth. Wouldn’t he come back with the new Jerusalem?

      Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

      Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God.

      Rev 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

  7. I appreciate this it seems for me the missing piece. Many are praying in agreement with the Moslems prayer. Do the Moslems have the arch of the covenant? I am blessed with this reference because many of the other teachings do not bear witness with Christ inside of me. Something does not add up. I am not a great person just someone who has been asking the Lord about all that is happening.
    When you wrote this it seems like the missing piece. I will be careful to and say it seems. These references you wrote I have never heard, because many preach what is out there and do not study and go of the cuff of their hand, which to them is a verification of being lead of the spirit, which I don’t mind, if it is lead of the Christ. Also, can be dangerous because we sin in our preaching. We all have sin and flesh in our lives. When you used the word impression you use is it causes you want to be careful, right? I like that-I have never heard someone us it in that way.
    I know Jesus is coming soon it is true and will always be true. We need to be ready in and out of season. As I have been processing all this and observing. Something is not right. It is the presence that some proclaim that I question. When I was in France with my mom and now hear in America I went through some stuff. There was a presence fallen over some of my friends who are beginning to walk in prophecy. It is a familure presence but it seems wrong. I have been praying to figure it out. Till one day I went with my dad to my moms country again. Then I remembered the stabbing. Then I remember a Moslem man speaking to me in America that they are the wrath of God and cause we did not do what was right they would. Then the Lord said that those who were speaking in prophecy were in agreement with the Moslems prayer. The Moslems have been praying and fasting. It is cause these ones are immature in prophesy. That was a strong statement to say to me. He had showed why. The college students and the older ones are young and they think it is the Lord. He showed me they see the words spoken over us by the Moslems. Then He showed me how they reach for them and speak them out, without realizing where they came from. Then He showed me the face of anger. And said this is not the anger of the Lord but the Moslems. Then he showed how they sensed it and feels it and put their hands on their belly thinking this must be the Lord and speak out the wrath of the Lord that the Moslems speak, being in agreement with the Moslems.
    That is why it seems familure to me and I could not peg it. Until I was in France I saw many more Moslems in the country. It was the same presence that came with the Moslems in France. When I went to France with my mom to grandparents house. There was a man that lived somewhere near us that stabbed his wife seven times. He was Moslem. Something was wrong. Because the lack of discernment I did not know.
    Many are in agreement with the Moslems prayer because it seems similar to Christians with some of the words and stands they take. The anger, wrath of God, is not the one in the bible. It is so close to our scriptures in the bible in dealing with sin and Gods anger we mistake it, thinking it is the Lord. There is no discernment. It is not to deny the things of the Lord, no, God forbid, but to discern what the cloning that is occurring. We are tempted to go with this anger because God is not pleased with sin or lack of faith. It decrees judgment to our nation. And according to scriptures it is true. However it is not the Moslems way that God will use His wrath. He is coming with His army and His righteousness to defeat the enemy. Though not many Moslems will admit to the words spoken to me earlier about the wrath of God, they have. I was grieved and the spirit behind it is the discernment of the type of anger and presence that these are walking in prophecy. Praise God for the choice, which is gift from God, to choose in our country what religion to practice. We must discern.
    Jesus is coming soon that is true but we do not have to agree with the Moslems prayer, and their interpretation of Gods wrath which is easier to feel because it is an anger of the flesh. Which turns to murderous. This is not the anger of the Lord. His is different. I recognize with those Christians who are giving words about our time and the anger they are speaking is what the Moslems are claiming. Jesus, not Allah and his ways call us. Jesus is coming and love the scriptures you used. This is not to deny the times. One would be a fool to see and to be slow to respond to Jesus and His call. He is coming we do not know the time. It is possible it will be at 2012 or not. I just know we need to pray and be ready at all times. I am crying out to pray and see if the Lord will show you this. It would be nice for some verification. He keeps reminding me. I am young too. I was blessed with this teaching because many of the others are not bearing witness but I also do not want to be a fool but it seems if this is true the enemy is deceiving many because they do not teach or heard about this.

    Love in Christ MW
    with accountability from you what the Lord said to me and stirred up when I read the scriptures because many are not teaching this.

    • dear mw

      The righteous are not appointed to wrath. They are protected by the blood of Jesus.

      1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

      The wrath of God is reserved for the wicked, and will not occur until the righteous are removed.

      Any harm we may experience is not from God, but from our enemies, who hate us.

      Muslims have no order from God to kill anyone.

  8. I can’t imagine, with the antichrists ego, that he would be interested in sitting himself down in a tent!
    With modern building techniques, it would not take long, to build a beautiful Temple.
    The Jews are also expecting their Messiah, so they are not going to present him a temple of canvas.
    No, a 3rd Temple of stone must be built.
    This is a given!

    • hi glenn

      I hear the Israelis are building a “training temple,” near Jericho, for the Levite priests, to begin learning all the rituals for the final temple. I wish I could find a picture of it.

  9. Is the Third Temple still commencing this tuesday, March 16th, 2010?

  10. According to the Bible, New testament God has already raised the tabernacle of David

    (Isa 16:5 KJV) And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

    (Amos 9:11 KJV) In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

    Acts 15:14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
    Acts 15:15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
    Acts 15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
    Acts 15:17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

    The tabernacle of David is the Church of Jesus Christ

  11. Hanukkah at Temple Institute: Working to Rebuild the Temple

    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/174557#.Updmuo1Sbbd

  12. One of my discoveries is that why will the antichrist be allowed to invadeI Israel? Precisely because the Jews start the sacrifice when God has already given his only son! Which is why Isaiah says in context of the end times I REJECT YOUR SACRIFICES!

  13. Allen,

    Everything is in order, ready to build and then open the 3rd Temple.

    Everything is ready, waiting for God’s perfect timing to begin.

    The Lord will enter through the Golden gate.

    http://www.templeinstitute.org/main.htm

  14. amen

  15. Alan,

    Who doubts?

    “But with righteousness He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked” (Isaiah 11:4).

    “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming” (2nd Thessalonians 2:8).

    But, the key is The Ark of the Covenant. The Temple will be complete with the Ark.

  17. Well the third temple being the church could be true, but not according to Bible prophecy. Have any of you wondered why the antichrist will invade Israel and put up the abomination and stop the sacrifice? Astonishingly, I discovered that the LORD SENDS the AC to invade Israel. Why? ( I SUPPORT ISRAEL!)

    Isaiah 10 talks about the assyrian invading ISrael as Gods instrument to punish Israel. Luke 21 says that when the antichrist invades Israel, FLEE, for this is the time of punishment for Israel, and the gentiles shall trample Israel for 42 months. (I know so many place this in AD 70, but this simply cannot be true)

    Isaiah 1 and Isaiah 66 speaks of a time when God will reject the sacrifices of Israel, and in context these chapters are about the end of time, for chapter 2 speaks of the second coming.

    Why?

    Have any of you thought that since God GAVE HIS ONLY SON ALREADY that he might be offended at his own people when they start to sacrifice again?

    That appears to be the reason why the antichrist comes into Israel and causes the people to flee- God will use the Assyrian to punish his people, then he will punish the assyrian in my land as he comes back 3 1/2 years later.

    ISAIAH 1 THE LORD REJECT’S ISRAEL’S SACRIFICES AND DECREES
    THAT ISRAEL IS TO BE DESOLATE AND PURGED BY AN
    INVASION.
    ISAIAH 2 EVERYONE WILL SEE THE LORD RETURNING IN THE AIR.

    The abomination that causes DESOLATION. Israels’ desolation……..by the invasion of the Antichrist… then, after 3 1/2 years of great distress, the Lord will come back. This story is looped again:

    ISAIAH 3 ISRAEL IS SINNING. THEREFORE THE LORD WILL JUDGE
    HER ON THE DAY OF THE LORD.
    ISAIAH 4 JESUS THE BRANCH WILL RETURN AND COVER ISRAEL’S
    SIN. HE WILL BE A COVERING OF FIRE.
    ISAIAH 5 AS THE WORLD IS IN DARKNESS, JESUS THE BANNER
    STANDS IN THE AIR AND WHISTLES FOR HIS PEOPLE TO
    COME AND JOIN HIM.

    The day of the Lord is an invasion of ISrael when false prophets say peace. This must take place at the 3 1/2 year mark of Daniels final 7. The Antichrist will rule for 3 1/2 years. Then the Lord will return. We see this pattern in Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Hosea and many others.

  18. YEah you see this prophecy is repeated all throughout the OT: In consecutive chapters no less! (This is my discovery)

    Hosea’s DAY OF THE LORD:

    HOSEA 2:

    1 SHE IS NOT MY WIFE, NOR I HER
    2 HUSBAND!
    3 I WILL STRIP HER NAKED.
    10 I WILL UNCOVER HER…IN THE SIGHT
    OF HER LOVERS.
    13 I WILL PUNISH HER.
    14 I WILL … BRING HER INTO THE
    WILDERNESS.
    15 THE VALLEY OF ACHOR …
    (SHALL BECOME) A DOOR OF HOPE.
    16 IN THAT DAY…YOU WILL CALL ME,
    “MY HUSBAND.”
    17-
    23 THE MILLENNIUM.

    Hosea 2: Not so allegorically now, the Lord predicts that
    Israel will rebel and thus will need to be punished for her
    Activities. (verse 13) Verse 14, I believe, speaks of the “fleeing” of Judea into the wilderness, which is what will happen
    when the antichrist invades Israel. Not so coincidentally, Revelation 11 also speaks of “the woman” (Israel) who “flees” into the wilderness. That same insinuation is used here.
    Verse 15: The “Valley of Achor” (or “trouble”) is most likely a yet another not so veiled reference to the “Valley of Armageddon.” It is at this battle that a “door of hope” will open when Jesus, “the door” comes again. Verses 16-23: Then after Armageddon, Israel and the church will become the Lord’s true wife. Then the Millennium will commence.

    Next we see in Hosea the new discovery I found, that consecutive chapters have a secret message:

    HOSEA 5 EPHRAIM SHALL BE DESOLATE IN THE DAY OF REBUKE.

    HOSEA 6 COME, AND LET US RETURN TO THE LORD;
    FOR HE HAS TORN US, BUT HE WILL HEAL US;
    AFTER TWO DAYS HE WILL REVIVE US;
    ON THE THIRD DAY HE WILL RAISE US UP,…

    HOSEA 7 DESTRUCTION.

    HOSEA 8 BECAUSE THEY HAVE …. REBELLED AGAINST MY
    LAW. ISRAEL WILL CRY TO ME, (BUT) ’MY GOD,
    WE KNOW YOU!’

    HOSEA 9 ISRAEL WILL BECOME A WOMAN OF NO REPUTE.
    (the prostitute will be invaded by the AC)

    HOSEA 10 BECAUSE OF YOUR (ISRAEL’S) GREAT
    WICKEDNESS. AT DAWN THE KING OF ISRAEL
    SHALL BE CUT OFF.

    HOSEA 11 THE ASSYRIAN SHALL BE (ISRAEL’S) KING,
    BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO REPENT.

    HOSEA 12 ( PEACE TREATY) THEY MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE ASSYRIANS.

    HOSEA: Israel will be invaded by the king of Assyria.

    NOTE: Just like Isaiah, the King of Assyria is mentioned here!

  19. I suggest you read “Lost Ark? God Forbid” within Heaven Awiats.

    The Temple Mount authorities are aware of the Ark, but waiting upon God to proceed.

    It will not be much longer.

    Blessings
