Rebuild a "Third Temple"?
Dr. J. Randall Price says that the most volatile 35 acres on Earth are those comprising a rectangular platform in East Jerusalem, known as the Temple Mount, on which the ancient Jewish Temple once stood. Both the Old Testament and the New Testament together affirm that a new Temple will once again occupy this platform as part of God's end time program for the Nation of Israel."
- Do you think The "Third Temple" In Jerusalem will ever be built?
- Would you like it to be built?
- Could it be built without physically disturbing the Muslim Dome of the Rock?
- What political and sociological events would ensue should Israel built the Third Temple -- even if it did not physically disturb the Muslim Dome of the Rock?
Just as likely, in my view, is that some rogue terrorist group will nuke Jerusalem and/or Mecca. Wouldn't that be fun? May you live in interesting times.
I don't believe much in prophecy, but some people do and they are actively trying to create this Red Heifer. (apparently) A guy from Texas (i think his name is Clyde Loft) has hired the scientists who created Dolly to geneticlly engineer a red calf. His motivation is to be around when Jesus shows up again!
Just a few months ago, the Associated Press released a (very small) story about orthodox Jews want to resume the practice of animal sacrifice and it mentions a "hotly contested religious site near Jeruslamen"
Oh thoes wacky extreemists.
