the timing, I believe this is the last days. I also see the ME as real because if it isn't real my whole family is nuts! I just want to put 2 and 2
together and get something!!!
The megachurch's architectural design was a best guess of Bible description of what Solomon's temple was supposed to have looked like. The so-called
3rd temple is supposed to be built like what is described in Ezekiel. The only reason to call it 3rd is because Maimonides (AD1135-1204) said it would
be called the third, and it was written in the Talmud as that.
Of course, the Herod's temple, for which the 2nd temple was completely removed, to clear the space and raise the foundation, gets completely ignored,
even though it was the greatest of all temples in the World at its time.
I've seen in BreakingIsraelNews, whose articles are written by the same guy (One man operating a website?), vaguely writes about things then hypes
them as "right now, it's happening right now!!! Run around in circles screaming!!!" (disclaimer: paraphrase exaggerated for effect), only to find out
he's reporting on something from 2 or 3 years ago.
The last days for Herod's temple were in AD 66-70. Many people died, for them it was the last days. If people freak out about repeating what has
already happened, perhaps they should think of ways of preventing a repeat rather than fatalistically accepting it as inevitable.
Speaking of repeats: One repeat already did happen during bar Kochba's brief 3 1/2 year reign as Messiah in Jerusalem, during which time the daily
sacrifices may have been re-instituted on the temple site. The last days for him and his followers came AD 136.
