Do you have some sort of scripture for that, or is it a theory
that sounds good to you? I'm not saying a temple will not be
built. But it would be more a distraction from what the
prophecy is really talking about. My understanding is that

afterwords the believers in Christ were called the Holy Temple,
and while it stood, the temple was called just, the temple.
The future person, The Antichrist was an invention of
the Jesuits to counteract the unanimous understanding
between the Protestants that the Papacy was the antichrist.

understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of
 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
