Being touted as a “prophetic painting”, the idea of building an earthly Temple in Jerusalem has more than one problem to it.

Many eyes are on developments in Middle East this month, blinding them to a much greater reality. The Temple Institute, in Jerusalem, Israel, has boasted itself as being dedicated to every aspect of the “Holy Temple” in Jerusalem. Howso? Their current project determination is to rebuild the third temple in the land of Jerusalem below, replicating with exactitude every article to specification as the Biblical instructions tell. For what cause? Doubtless because the Jews  are gathering together in the land of Jerusalem, and must be dedicated by the first sacrifice in a rebuilt temple. To do this, they must build an altar upon which to sacrifice. Indeed, this month, they have accomplished just that. They finished making the third altar for sacrifices. The problems with a rebuilt temple, time would fail us to tell here in this update. But chiefly, the basis of their understanding goes as follow. (1) The temple must be rebuilt before Messiah can come.** (2) The flesh and blood Israel are the promised people by virtue of descending from the loins of Abraham.**
(3) The Jerusalem on this earth is the holy Jerusalem of God.**

The misunderstandings on these matters run deep. And the matter of rebuilding the temple is a misunderstanding of Amos 9:11-12. See how the apostles understood the matter: (Act 15:14-16) “Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, 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:”

Notice first, that it says God would build it up, agreeing with the words of the prophet Zechariah 6:13 regarding Christ: “Even He shall build the temple of the LORD; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon His throne; and He shall be a priest upon His throne…” The apostles saw that Amos words found fulfillment in the building of a different temple. See two apostolic confessions: (Eph 2:19-22) “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;   In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

And (1 Peter 2:5) “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood,
to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”
There are some, putting merit into such a temple built by men, who declare that it would be God’s temple by saying it will be desecrated by an antichrist power, the “abomination of desolation”. Such have no true conception of the Sanctuary in heaven, or of it’s host, and fail to see that the desolating abomination fits the description of the Papacy perfectly.

Christ has indeed had His temple from the beginning, as Jeremiah 17:12 reveals, and IS BUILDING His temple with “living stones” even now, which stones we are in Christ. And not only us, but since the creation of the host of heaven, the angels, as brother David has shown in his article, were “flames of fire”, and that covering Cherub that fell was said to be
walking in the midst of “stones of fire” (Eze. 28:14), which are none other than the flames of
fire that proceed from the Throne of the Ancient of days. (Dan. 7:9-10)
