Global SITREP C9-15: The Surest Sign of the "End of the Age"


19 June 2015: Our LORD Jesus Messiah began His Olivet Discourses virtual checklist of prophetic end times signs by pointing to the Temple on Mount Moriah and prophesying to the apostles that it was soon to be destroyed with not one stone to remain standing upon another. This prophecy came to pass exactly as described by Jesus 37 years later on 10 August (9th of Av) in 70 AD. 

How appropriate would it be then for the Temple of the 70th Week to have its construction, completion and worship services commenced prior to the advent of the angel Gabriel's prophecy about Israel's 70th Week? I believe the Word of God Himself in the text of the Holy Bible tells us this will be the case. 

Therefore, a standing and fully-functioning Jewish Temple on Mount Moriah would be the greatest physical sign of the imminent arrival of the final seven years of human history as we have known it since Jesus' own death, resurrection and ascension into Heaven and the rebirth of Israel in fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8.

John the Revelator writes in the first three verses of Chapter 11 the revelation which  God gave to Jesus who made it known to the angel who presented it to John:
"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. And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”"
Here is a standing and fully functioning Temple at the very commencement of the 70th Week, upon the Lord's appointing the Two Witnesses to commence their prophesy and ministry for the 42 months (1,260 days) of the first half of the 70th Week. 

Look at the grandeur, spectacle and sheer size of the Temple as imagined and scaled to correct proportions above.  How long does it take in this era to prepare the ground and layout all of the requisite necessities for the construction of such a Divinely ordained structure such as this? 12 months? 2 years? Three? More? 

The point is that a structure such as this will require a schedule and an executable plan to complete. Other religiously ordained things are required to place it into actual service, and they will require a certain amount of time also to complete. 

Whatever these unknowns amount to in linear time, one thing is certain, all of these activities will all occur prior to the start of the 70th Week, as well as all of the logisitics which are necessary to make such a construction effort even possible. The Harpazo can occur at any moment, yet there is also the distinct possibility that the Bride of Christ will be witness to the prophetic events, such as the fulfillment of the Psalm 83 war, which are prerequisite events to any of this occurring. 

As the text reveals, the "times of the Gentiles" are still in progress when the Two Witnesses begin their appointed and prophetic ministry and the construction and completion of the Temple structure occurs.

I personally suspect that the dome of the rock will be a "casualty of either psalm 83 or Gog/magog and the temple will be rebuilt promptly after Gog / magog. I also suspect that the catching away will occur around the time of Gog/magog and the time of Jacob's trouble will occur just weeks after that "battle". I don't think the temple will take long to build. If I understand correctly the plans and furniture are already prepared

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

The Dome has to go... doesn't the "rock" belong within the Holy of Holies within the Temple? Yes, it does.

Preparations and planning are one thing, but the virtual orchestra of everything connected to tremendous logistics involved is another animal entirely. You MUST account for and give due consideration to the physical location of the Temple Mount in tightly packed Jerusalem.

I would not want the job of the construction overseer --- which I think might be shared by one or more rabbis who may or may not have any experience in such a construction undertaking. Then there's the government to deal with also. Permits. Licenses, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera ad infinitum.

Point is, there's a whole lot more involved here than most folks have looked at closely and all of eats up time and will cause unforeseen delays, and yet by the time of the 70th Week the Temple will have been constructed, dedicated and be fully functioning.

I see this kind of a project taking a minimum of two to three years to start and finish.

Sean,

It never occurred to me, previously, that preparation for 3rd Temple construction would begin prior to the start of Daniel's 70th week.

So many things are so rapidly coming together that it is hard to comprehend it all.

Now, I can envision a leak in the Temple planning details enraging Muslims and causing the final and closing act/curtain of the Psalm 83 War.

Great Grany 5 said...

Oh Sean, unless Our Heavenly Father does a major excavation job, there will be a hoard of buzzards putting up a major resistance of earth shattering proportions. But I do not believe those details have been neglected by the Master Planner in the least.

We have waxed eloquently on several occasions about Ps. 83, Is 17 and Good ole Jeremiah's 49 and rightly so but I have this great big Whooa Dude going on right now and it goes like this: Sequential fulfillment in complete coordination with the Miracle of all miracles of the Temple Mount being cleansed of the current desecration put there by those who have dedicated their whole history on trying to make YAHWEH a Liar. HE IS but the one they have sacrificed so much to, is. I keep having churn up inside of me, All things are possible when God is in it and He will have this temple built and it will be on time and in exactly the right place.

Oh, by the way, you did a fabulous work on this subject but I wouxd not expect anything less from you. Good work!

Shalom

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean in my comment I said the Other people in that region were dedicated to making YAHWEH a liar and then I left out a very important word. I meant to state He(meaning God) Is not a liar but the one they have dedicated their whole history to, is

I did proof read before I posted and I am so ashamed of my error.

hartdawg said...

Two to three years? If it was in king county Washington it would probably take 5 years just to get the permits, then if some endangered species of birds happened to land on the site it would be another 10 years :). I just had to throw that in there

Anonymous said...

If Daniel's 70th week begins with the AC confirming a 7 year agreement (which it does), then it makes sense that the temple would already be constructed and at least ready to be fully operational by that time.

Otherwise there is a period of time between the beginning of the tribulation and the temple completion date when temple ceromonies cannot be conducted because the temple isn't ready.

And given that the AC desecrates the temple half way through the tribulation, there would already be very little time for the temple ceremonies to take place. Even less time if construction remains ongoing during the tribulation.




Sean Osborne said...

Arab Muslims have been very busy of late accusing Israel of preparing to build the Temple on Mount Moriah. Some of the accusations are completely unhinged, which is actually quite normal for rumor-mongering among the most insecure Arab Muslims, but most accusation are just the leading edge because Arab Muslim fears are based upon the real-world fact that the Arab world really does not hold sovereignty over Temple Mount - Israel does.

The tensions on the mount are also often reflected in the Knesset, particularly in meetings of its Internal Affairs Committee. A session of this committee this past Tuesday was brought to a halt because of a verbal altercation between Knesset members over Jewish worshipers access to the mount. This is not unusual and has occurred 16 times in the past 19 months when this committee meets, and the altercations are always between Israeli and Arab MKs with the Arab MK routinely threatening the Israeli MKs with bloodshed occurring on Temple Mount if any change is made to the current status quo. In this most recent altercation an Arab MK called an Israeli member a "racist" to which the Israeli member responded by calling on the Knesset ushers to "get this terrorist out of here!" Clearly, Israel's parliamentarians are close to physical violence over Temple Mount issues, and those issues orbit around the fact that Israel currently has sovereignty over the site.

As can be clearly seen through the lens of Revelation 11:1-3, the Temple Mount status quo will definitively change - it will be internationalized and the Jewish Temple under Jewish sovereignty will stand tall in the middle of it.

ALL of the prophetic indicators are now active and in motion towards literal fulfillment: Russia, Iran, Syria/Damascus, Psalm 83 and Temple Mount.

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

All kidding aside, timing is everything. These are appointed times. Divinely appointed times.

Five and one-half years ago, back in December of 2009 which was the 12 month from when I began this blog, I wrote a piece entitled When Will The Third Temple Be Built.

In that article I wrote that God told us when the temple would be rebuilt according to the prophetic template found in 1 Kings 5:1-5. Verse 4 is the key: there will be no enemy nations on any of Israel's borders. At that time I also tied this future status to the fulfillment of Isiah 17, Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38/39.

However, I now recognize that none of the Ezekiel 38/39 enemies will share a common border with Israel, and the prophetic template of 1 Kings 5:1-5 can be realized following the fulfillment Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 alone.

Now that we are just three years from Israel's 70th "birthday" things prophetic are clarifying even more than they were just five 5.5 years years ago.

Wes said...

Sean,
I just submitted a comment in which I asked if you could describe in more detail about how you came to the conclusion that the Temple must be rebuilt before the beginning of Daniel's 70th week. I have not researched the things you talked about in your last post at 9:29 this morning. So if the answers are there, you can ignore my previous post and questions which I just submitted a few minutes ago.

thanks,
Wes

Sean Osborne said...

Wes,

As you have probably seen by now, Scripture is the basis for what I've written here and in the other referenced post from December 2009. Let any questions you may still have rip, and I will respond to them.

hartdawg said...

One thing that I'm having a difficult time understanding is this, the idea that during the 70th week the dome of the rock and the rebuilt temple will stand side by side. This idea has been debunked many times but advocates of this teaching keep going back to revelation 11:2. Frankly, I don't think Revelation 11:2 supports that. I don't understand why they teach this nonsense. Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 & 39 in my opinion debunks that silly notion. I just don't understand why this is taught

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

That silly notion was a common theme that was quite erroneously taught from the 1970s through recent times by those Christians who simply did not understand that the rock smack dab in the middle of the Dome of the Rock and the Foundation Stone within the Holy of Holies of the 1sr and 2nd Temples have always been exactly the same thing.

The side-by-side 3rd Temple and Dome of the Rock notion was popularized in some Christian movies back in the 1990's and unBerean folks just accepted what the movie presented as future prophetic fact, when in fact nothing of the sort can possibly occur.

It will be physically impossible for the Holy of Holies of the 3rd Temple and the Dome of the Rock to simultaneously exist on the same exact site, much less sit side-by-side.

Image of the The Foundation Stone

In the Temple the Ark of the Covenant sat upon the Foundation Stone. See also 1 Kings 6:23 regarding what was inside the Holy of Holies during the time of the 1st temple, and II Chronicles 35:3.

Bruce McKerras said...

A very wise and scripturally correct discernment of the time periods required before the Return of Jesus. There is no doubt that a new Temple will be built, that is well prophesied. The Ark will be found and placed in it and the Shekinah glory will return to it.
We are told what that time period is, after the Sixth Seal, a worldwide devastation that sets the scene for the end time events, until the glorious Return of Jesus. It is the Seventh Seal; about a half hour in HEAVEN. we know heavenly time is not the same as earthly time. 2 witnesses tell us; 1 day to God is as 1000 years to us.
Therefore 1/48th of 1000 years = 20.8 years, approximately. This is about right for all that must happen.

jmoll106 said...

Hi Sean,
I always thought the dome of the rock sat over the place of the foundation stone, however, my impression reading about the exodus temple and the temple in Ezekiel's day. The temple faced east and it was a straight line out the gate. In Ezekiel 9,10, and 11 we see the Glory of the Lord leave the temple, straight out the east gate, straight to the mountain.I would have thought the Jews of Herods day would have copied the same thing, but the eastern gate or beautiful gate of Jesus day does not line up with the foundation stone. However I am looking at it from images as I have never been there. Am I seeing or saying this correctly? I agree the dome and mosque will not be there in Daniel's seventieth week. This is a exciting sitrep and thinking on these thing makes it hard to get to sleep.:)

jmoll106 said...


One other thing...
Thank you for pointing out that the building of the temple is the "Surest sign of the end of the age". A watchful christian or for that matter a partially sleeping christian shouldn't miss that sign.

Hartdawg and Sean - Thanks for your clarifying posts on the 3rd Temple and Dome locations. I had been taught similar to Hartdawg.

Sean Osborne said...

I just remembered that it was a 1999 film produced by Matthew Crouch (TBN/Gener8Xion Entertainment) titled The Omega Code that was heavily hyped by TBN at the time which contained an impressive visual reference to notion of the 3rd Temple standing next to the Dome of the Rock.

I recall a scene from The Omega Code where the Antichrist (played by Michael York as "Stone Alexander") stands on a platform directly in front of the Temple and the Dome and announces to the Jews and Muslims below, "I am the God of your fathers."

Sean Osborne said...

I feel the need to bring this up because I have seen of late a number of people teaching something that I am certain is erroneous and not supported by the prophetic texts of the Bible.

These people are teaching that Jesus' opening of the first six of the Seven seals on the scroll occurs prior to the start of the 70th Week.

I do not accept this teaching. I accept that ALL of the the judgment seals are opened by Christ after the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ and during 70th Week.

The most basic Biblical reason for my belief is that if one or all six seal openings were to occur prior to the Harpazo then the time of the Harpazo could be directly linked to a specific seal opening event. This would allow Satan to know the Harpazo's timing and he could then interfere or disrupt God's plan for the Bride of Christ.

Such a thing is an impossibility as Jesus made perfectly crystal clear in Matthew 24:36.

That said, there is no further reason for myself or anyone else to go into any greater detail on why some people are teaching the erroneous nonsense of pre-70th Week seal openings by our Lord and Savior.



Ken B said...

This is pure here say BUT... I have heard that aside from the temple institute having all the smaller things ready, there is a group that has assembled building materials and has them stored away until they can build. Again I nobody will confirm but that was a statement I had read.

We do know that they ran dry runs of all their passover sacrifices and ordinances this past year so build time will be their only factor at this point. I am an architect but in residential, I dont deal with commercial type at all. In the AZ desert we can build a home to finish in about 3 months! Readying 1Kings I have to imagine it will take about 2-3 years to complete the temple.

hartdawg said...

Hey sean, I'm glad you brought up the point about the seals and the harpazo. There is a teacher, I won't even give him the benefit of calling him a scholar, who is greatly respected and revered but I think he is totally messed up on theology. I'm referring to rc sproul. Have you ever heard him? I have some dearly loved brethren who are new in the faith who have been listening to this guy and now they are totally confused about the seal judgment, the wrath of God (they don't see the seals as God's wrath) and the harpazo. Anyway, I'm glad you brought that up.

Ps, I hope I didn't offend you with my remark about RC Sproul, it's just I see the confusion he's spreading

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

No worries about RC Sproul as he is a eschatologically bankrupt preterist. The things that 20th century preterists believe and teach were dealt a death blow 1,900 years before any of them were born.

All preterists openly reject the fact that when John on Patmos was inspired to write the Revelation of Jesus Christ circa 95 AD it was 25 years after-the-fact of what occurred in Jerusalem in 70 AD.

God does not inspire men to write history; He inspires men to write prophecy.

hartdawg said...

That last phrase on your response was priceless!!!! I'm going to mention that to my confused friend. Thank you

Sean,
do you think it a possible scenario could be for the temple to be under construction the first 3.5 yrs, and antichrist performs the abomination of desolation at like a dedication ceremony, surprising the Jews?
JG

Sean Osborne said...

JG,

Revelation 11:1-3 is crystal clear that the Temple has been completed and is in full operation when the Two Witnesses are appointed by God to commence their ministry.

For what other reason is John told to "measure the temple of God and the altar and the worshipers therein"? The word "measure" is "metreĊ" meaning both to measure and count by a known standard both the physical structure, the altar and the number of worshipers within it.

Then the two Witnesses appear, and they continue their prophesy and witness ministry for 1,260 days. Then they are killed and resurrected. Then the AoD occurs just after this.

NG said...

So If your right the 70th week of Daniel can't start in 2015 unless it is possible to rebuild the temple within a few weeks. I don't see this happening any time soon.

Now, since rapture is an independent event and it could occur anytime from now, so still possible in 2015 and we have got to be ready. It could occur in the next couple of minutes and we have got to be found ready.

Sean Osborne said...

The 70th Week of Daniel won't commence for at least another six years according to the sum of the Bible prophecy interpretations I've posted to this blog since 2009.

The Harpazo can occur at any microsecond. However, I don't worry or think about it muck because I'm always prepared for its occurrence, yet I also am of the mind that Christ died for my sake, so I have no issue dying for Him, or for the liberty of my fellow man. That defines a Christian soldier.

hartdawg said...

Hey sean, so you say the 70th week won't commenced for at least another 6 years. When you really think about it, 6 years isn't a very long time. I don't think it'll be much more than 6 years.....unless I'm wrong in my interpretation of the fig tree

Sean Osborne said...

I base this exegesis on both aspects of Psalm 90:10, as well as the multiple but intricately related pre-70th Week wars which, as Jesus said, "must take place." All of these aspects will combine to set the geo-political and other conditions which will exist during Israel's 70th Week.

hartdawg said...

Something else I was thinking, before the 70th week begins there has to be a 10 nation confederacy, of which one of the nation's the man of sin will arise. That's another piece of the puzzle that could take a few years. What are your thoughts?

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean,

While in Israel, God's Promised and Covenented Land to THEE SEED LINE through SARAH and ABRAHAM, the stark reality of just how far the presumption of the seeds of Mohammed had gone freaky hit home to me! Those Islamic prayer towers all over and every one of them trying to reach a much higher elevation than any other edifice. The arrogance and pushiness was so very evident among the men selling their wares on every corner and stopping place that the tourist coaches took us. I did not go there with any kind of dislike for anyone and really I have never had any type of prejudice towards anyone my whole life but the impression or discernment that I received later has proven very correct. The Forces of evil know for a certainty that their days are numbered and all the stops have been pulled as far as the Jews and Christians are concerned!

Quite truthfully I do not believe it will take 6 years because of one scripture but I don't remember the passage. It goes something like this: in the times of the End, the reaper will overtake the sower. Now for the longest time I took that to mean witnessing to the unsaved but before anyone told them about the Gospel, somehow they were saved supernaturally. But I do not think that is the whole story. I believe it is already happening and especially among the Muslim populations by signs, dreams and visions. If this is the beginning by the evidence of many, many missionaries living and sharing in the regions, then the time is shorter than we think! Or at least I hope that is the signal. No matter what my life has been a process of thinking one thing and my beloved ABBA doing something totally unexpected! Praise HIM no matter what because HIS thoughts are much greater than anything I can imagine to believe.

But I so enjoy and go away enlightened by your devotion to our ABBA!

GG5/Shalom

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

Yes, the two feet with ten toes from Nebuchadnezzar's dream that Daniel correctly interpreted via Divine knowledge will definitely exist prior to the start of the 70th Week. In fact, those toes exist today as modern independent nations of the ancient Roman Empire.

This is why I believe paying very close attention to what is occurring in Greece and the EU at present is more than warranted. It is from one of those "toes" that the Antichrist will arise according to Gabriel's prophesies in the Book of Daniel.

GG5,

YES! YES! YES!

You have hit the nail on the head... you're referring to the prophecy of Amos 9:13, which says:

"“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
The mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
And all the hills shall flow with it.
"

The sum of the prophesy of Amos 9:11-15 is about the restoration of Israel, and it begins with verses 11 and 12, the meaning of which is specific to the subject of this SITREP about the Temple standing prior to the start of the 70th Week and our witness to it (i.e. the Bride of Christ being the Gentiles known by His name):

"“On that day I will raise up
The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down,
And repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins,
And rebuild it as in the days of old;
That they may possess the remnant of Edom,
And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
Says the Lord who does this thing.
"

The restoration of Israel continues in verses 14 and 15:

"I will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.
I will plant them in their land,
And no longer shall they be pulled up
From the land I have given them,”
Says the Lord your God.
"

This prophecy is like Psalm 83 in that it since 1948 it has been and continues to be a prophecy in the active process of fulfillment before the eyes of THIS GENERATION.

Wayne said...

I believe that the standard understanding of how long something takes to accomplish will no longer apply after the removal of the church. Evil and conflict are powerful now, but once the prayers of the church are removed, there will be nothing in the way to slow it down. The rebuilding of the temple will not be the act of the righteous, but rather the religious. While the gap between the rapture and the renewing of the treaty will be more than a day, It would be a shock if it lasted more than 6 months. Without a man in charge, the world would tear itself apart in very short order.

Regarding the building of the temple, an example of quick building is that six of us men stick-framed a 1600 sq ft bungalow with the roof on and the exterior doors and windows in in two days. With the right coordination,a stone temple could easily be completed in one month, ready for occupancy. also note the TV series Extreme Makeover - Home Edition. where they tear down and build a massive house in one week.

Great Grany 5 said...

Oh oh, Sean, your response is causing a great big shiver all the way through my old body! I got up this morning with that passage running through my mind and I could not shake it, nor did I want to.

I know in my knower that before long I will exit this gravity heavy earth and quite truthfully, I look forward with great joy and Abba's peace in my cutting the cable and sailing along with my Heavenly Escorts. Just think, I get a new body and I won't have to listen to anymore of the silliness of the SCOTUS or the Hot Air from Mr. Obama, Hillary, or the shinning of the elected men and women in DC who either don't know how to stop this Misfit in the WH or don't want to. But just think, all of my prayers are stored up in Heaven for everyone that I have lovingly prayed for over the years.

So much to do before we leave and it is difficult right now to really be able visualize the Bride of Christ as pure, holy and without spot or blemish. I know it will be but oh, how I yearn for all of us to walk and have our being in the full awareness of who we are in Jesus Christ and begin to do all that HE did and more besides!

Have a wonderful weekend and give God a great big Shout that will rock the highest Mountain and cause the unsaved to see the truth. There is only one way to ever be in the Holy Presence of God and His Son is that way.

Sean Osborne said...

GG5,

My prayer is that we all are caught up together. I truly do believe we are still here because the Lord has us as His witnesses prior to the time when his anointed two witnesses begin their 1,260-day long ministry.

In any direction one gazes, in any facet of what is going on around the planet today, there is tangible proof that final pre-70th Week string of prophetic fulfillment is in progress! Praise God!

Sean Osborne said...

Wayne,

I disagree with your first two sentences.

After the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ there will still be a great number of the angelic host performing their Divine task upon the Earth. The archangel Michael will be actively defending Israel. The Revelation of Jesus Christ written by John on Patmos also attests to these things in a great many chapters and verses.

I also completely disagree with what you say about the building of the 3rd Temple, that it's "not be the act of the righteous, but rather the religious."

The Word of God regarding this structure is very clear that it will be "the temple of God." (2 Thessalonians 2:4 and Revelation 11:1 and as noted above Amos 9:11) The 3rd Temple will have a purified altar, a Holy Place and a Holy of Holies within it. If this were not so, if the 3rd temple were not truly Holy, then the prophetic act known as the Abomination of Desolation could not occur with the Holy Place (Daniel 9:27 and as referenced by Christ Himself in Matthew 24:15).

There is also the fact that an angel and an unknown additional number of angels of the Lord will seal the foreheads of His servants so that no harm comes to them (Revelation 7:1-3, which reads as follows in the NKJV:

"After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”"

Finally, there is no "renewing" of any treaty. According to the prophecy of the angel Gabriel, "the prince who is to come... (the Antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week..." (Daniel 9:26-27). This covenant is the for the entire duration of the 70th Week, but antichrist shall unilaterally abrogate this covenant by halting the Temple sacrifice and offerings to God after the first 42 months of the 70th Week have occurred.

As noted above, in Amos 9:11 the Temple will be like the ones which came before it. Each of the cornerstones which have been completed after being cut by diamonds weigh 6 tons each. With doubt the construction of the 3rd Temple will require many dozens of skilled construction workers and will occur over a period of weeks if not months, and it will be done under the auspices of the Israeli Government Minister of Housing and Construction (Uri Ariel).


Wayne said...

Sean. Thanks for your reply. While I believe that evil will explode throughout the world after the Harpazo, I also believe that it will never overcome the walls of protection that God has set around His people. The remanant of Israel will be preserved and millions of people will turn to the Lord during that time. While the world will collapse societally, The Holy Spirit will continue to work in the hearts of those who have been sealed.
My appologies on using the term "renewed" for the covenant instead of "confirmed". In my understanding, it is in this confirmation that the identity of the antichrist is finalized and the 70th week clock begins to tick.
God bless,
Wayne

Sean Osborne said...

Wayne,
Good reply and I agree with what you wrote completely.

Just keep in mind when discussing this subject that there are two distinct 1260-day halves to Israel's 70th Week: the 1260-day thlipsis which is followed immediately by the final 1260 days of the megas thlipsis.
God Bless You and Yours,
Sean

Have you also noticed that the P5+1 negotiators all know there will be no deal signed by Tuesday, 30 June, so they've decided to move it back to Thursday 9, July.

Possibly Isis will be involved in the destruction of the dome of the rock. They have stated they intend to destroy all muslim idols, including
Mecca. They see these shrines as apostacy. It was recently reported they are now active in Gaza. Perhaps they will also drive the
"Palastinians" out.

Sean Osborne said...

Alan Dietze,

You are absolutely correct!

One year ago this week I posted Global SITREP C13-14: ISIS Versus The World in which the very specific point about the Islamic State's intention to destroy all Islamic idols was first made public information.

One year ago visitors to this blog learned in reading SITREP C13-14 the Islamic State intends to destroy the Kaaba in Mecca. That was stunning enough, but I did not stop there.

Quoting that SITREP because it bears repeating, loudly:

"Here's where this gets real interesting. Where else do Muslim's go to worship a stone? To Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount, in the Dome of the Rock, that's where they go. Let that thought sink in and the potential repercussions overwhelm you as they just overwhelmed me this morning. Imagine ISIS destroying the Dome of the Rock, the very center of which used to be the Holy of Holies within the first two Jewish temples. Since June 1967, 37 years ago, the Dome of the Rock has been under the joint protection of the Hashemite Kingdom of Abdullah II, the Waqf and Israeli security forces. And so ISIS would want to destroy the Dome of the Rock because it is idolatrous and something a Muslim should never do.

What then would stand in the way of the Temple Institute beginning the construction of what will be the third temple on the mount? Not much. Everything for the construction of the temple is in readiness, and there's even a very strong candidate red heifer alive at this moment without any blemish.

Keeping an eye on this one!
"

Islamic State has recently made an ultimatum to all Christians living in Jerusalem. In fact, they delivered the ultimatum to the front door of where they live. The ultimatum is to leave Jerusalem in a week or they will be killed.

Besides the obvious, the point is that Islamic State could destroy the Dome of the Rock with a suicide squad without further warning and at the time of their choosing.

"This is a walk-through the main sanctuary of the Holy Temple, showcasing decades of research and tens of innovative Halachic solutions to various perplexing issues that were resolved to create fully functional, ready-to-use plans. As the visual tour sweeps through the sanctuary, one can see the menorah, incense altar and showbread table, all of which have already been prepared by the Institute, among 70 other sacred vessels. The presentation was specially released to coincide with the Ninth of Av, the Jewish national day of mourning which commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples.

This is not a ‘virtual’ representation, but a portion of a complete and highly detailed architectural plan which has been prepared for the immediate construction of the Holy Temple. The plan includes all of components that will be used in building: marble, stone, concrete, wood, flooring materials, overlay of gold, etc."
