CSB (John 16:33) 33 I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the (Satan’s) world.
In the previous article we discussed that Muslims of Allah are used worldwide as soldiers of Islam. They believe that Allah will judge after their death how a Muslim has behaved in this struggle.
We now see the rise of despotism, a form of government in which a small group of people gains absolute power. A tyranny or dictatorship, where freedom of speech no longer exists.
The Antichrist and the money system of the central banks will subdue the world.
The theme of this article is survival in the chaos; A new temple in Jerusalem, a joint Abrahamic religion, the Antichrist sits down as king in the temple, the large city of NEOM will be hit and finally Islam attacks Israel.
A new temple in Jerusalem on the temple mount
The Jews were rejected as God’s people and replaced by Christians as God’s people, yet the Jews are the chosen people. This time they have been chosen by Satan.
The endgame is to persuade everyone to worship Satan, to practice Satanism.
Concepts about the temple
Since 70 AD., after the destruction by the Romans, no Jewish temple has been built again on the temple mount in Jerusalem. The golden rock dome (Islam) is on the temple mount (Mount Moriah), the place where the temple or house of YHWH stood.
The Scriptures state that the false prophet will sit in the temple of God:
NKJV (2 Thessalonians 2: 4) 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God,….
For a long time we (doJC) thought that with the temple of ‘the false prophet’ the Christians themselves were meant:
NKJV (1 Corinthians 3:16) 16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
NKJV (2 Corinthians 6:16) 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”
However, there are more and more developments that the false prophet will build a new temple in Jerusalem by the Hasidic ultra-orthodox Jews. This will certainly not be the temple that is spoken of in the Scriptures. According to Scripture, the Sprout (Branch) or Prince of Peace will build the new temple:
NKJV (Zechariah 6: 12-13) 12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying: “Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH! From His place He shall branch out, And He shall build the temple of the Lord; 13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord. He shall bear the glory, And shall sit and rule on His throne; So He shall be a priest on His throne, And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”
The ambassador of the United States, David Friedman, was shown a photo-shopped plate of a new temple at the site of the Golden Dome when he visited Achiya, an ultra-Orthodox charity group on May 28 2018. (source twitter) The Muslim community was extremely upset.
What is the interpretation of Talmud Judaism regarding the temple? The question is whether they will build the new temple ‘themselves’ or have it done by their Messiah.
For what is the Biblical interpretation of the Sprout or Branch? Is that the Antichrist?
A fruit in the line of David will become King and is called ‘Branch’ in Jeremiah:
NKJV (Psalm 132: 11-12) 11 The Lord has sworn in truth to David; He will not turn from it: I will set upon your throne the fruit of your body.12 If your sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I shall teach them, Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore.
NKJV (Jeremiah 33: 14-15) 14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah: 15 ‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
This ‘righteous’ Branch, the Prince of Peace upon whom the Spirit of God rests, can be none other than Jesus. Jesus is the Root and the offspring in the line of David:
NKJV (Revelation 22:16) 16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
Developments regarding the new temple:
Rabbi Yehudah Glick and the new temple!
Rabbi Yehudah Glick has been appointed to the Israeli parliament, the Knesset.
Rabbi Glick is a leading figure in the creation of a new Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Glick wants all religions to worship together in the temple.
Update on the Building of the Third Temple
Gershon Salomon is director of the ‘Temple Mount Faithful’, an organization that makes an effort to prepare Israeli society to accept and promote the rebuilding of the Temple through demonstrations at the Temple site, the construction of a cornerstone for the Third Temple, and the making of various Temple-related utensils.
Israel’s Priests Prepare for the Third Temple
Chaim Richman, the director of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem.
Indeed, the Institute has already created over 60 sacred Temple vessels that will be needed for worship in the coming rebuilt Temple. The breastplate of the High Priest with the 12 precious stones of the tribes of Israel and the musical instruments of the Levitical choir are also ready. In addition, the Institute prepared the priestly garments. These garments will adorn a new generation of Levitical Priests (Kohanim) who are already in training.
There is also a golden Menorah (7-armed lampstand) and the golden crown for the high priest.
Sanhedrin Invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah Dedication of Altar for the Third Temple
The Sanhedrin has recently invited 70 nations to the Hanukkah celebration, the commemoration of the re-dedication of the Mosaic worship in the temple.
A communal Abramitic religion
Muslims are the natural allies of Jews in Europe – Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt
Muslims expect their Messiah, whom they call Mahdi.
The Sanhedrin asks Arabs to take their role in the third temple
The nascent Sanhedrin, a Biblically mandated court of 71 elders, released a letter in Hebrew, English and Arabic inviting the Arabs as the sons of Ishmael to take their role in supporting the Third Temple as prophesied by Isaiah 60: 6. The letter reads:
‘Dear brothers, the distinguished Sons of Ishmael, The great Arab nation;
With the gracious help of the protector and Savior of Israel, Creator of the world by covenant, we declare that the footsteps of Messiah are evidently heard and that the time has come to rebuild the Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem in its ancient place.’
And as far as Christians are concerned, the Sanhedrin said:
‘Every religion has a belief in moshiach (Messiah), in an end to one reality and the beginning of a new reality. In this new reality, every person, every religion, has their place and their purpose.’
Pope Francis and the great Imam of Al-Azhar signed a covenant in Abu Dhabi (the United Arab Emirates) in 2019 that brings us much closer to one world religion.
Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance
September 24, 2019 – Pope Francis:
‘To this end, I wish to endorse a global event, to take place on 14 May 2020 on the theme Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance.’
‘To reach these global objectives, our shared journey as an ‘educating village’ must take important steps forward. First, we must have the courage to place the human person at the centre.’
‘This will result in men and women who are open, responsible, prepared to listen, dialogue and reflect with others, and capable of weaving relationships with families, between generations, and with civil society, and thus to create a new humanism.’
Pope Francis Tells Christians Not to Try to Convert Nonbelievers
It is this Pope Francis who told Christian high school students in Dec. 2019 they should respect people of other faiths and not attempt to convert them to Christianity, insisting: ‘We are not living in the times of the crusades’.
Warnings of False Worship
Already in the first century, Jesus warned his disciples in Smyrna and Pergamus about Satan worship (Rev. 2: 9, 12-13).
Jesus gave Paul a mission as a traveling light bearer:
NKJV (Acts 26: 17-18) 17 … as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, 18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
The Antichrist sits down in the temple as king
The appearance of the Antichrist sitting in the new temple:
NKJV (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4) 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
In the days of the apostles, the Jews were hostile to the Christians:
NKJV (1 Thessalonians 2: 14-15) 14 For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans, 15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men.
The fulfillment of the 2 witnesses’ prophecy by God’s holy prophets is the last chance for salvation. This will be a worldwide testimony supported by the disciples of Jesus (Matt. 24:14): (See also Newsletters: 3. The two witnesses https://www.dojc.nl/?p=3139&lang=en
NKJV (Revelation 11: 3,7) 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth…. 7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.
After the two witnesses’ prophecy, God’s kingdom will have a beginning (Rev. 11:15) and will Satan be cast out from heaven (Rev. 12: 7-9).
Daniel describes the testimony work as follows:
NKJV (Daniel 11: 33, 35) 33 And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering….35 And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.
NKJV (Daniel 12: 3-4) 3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever. 4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
When the worship of the image (mark of Satan) and the Noachide laws of Talmud Judaism apply in the last days, the tribulation will be very intense according to Jesus:
NKJV (1 Peter 5: 8) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
NKJV (Matthew 24:22) 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
The false prophet will present himself with great power in a ‘special place’ to do his great signs before the eyes of men.
A very large earthquake, the great city NEOM will be affected
This false prophet will – according to our research – express his activities and signs in the city of Babylon the Great, a city that will eventually be destroyed.
The described city is, according to our research, the new city of Saudi Arabia, NEOM.
(For NEOM see: 4. Worship of the ‘image’ https://www.dojc.nl/?p=5231&lang=en)
The city that is full of idolatrous exaltation against their Creator through investments of humanity in genetic modification. NEOM is situated in a desert in Saudi Arabia:
CSB (Revelation 17: 3) 3 So he carried me away in the Spirit to a desert. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names, having seven heads and 10 horns.
NKJV (Matthew 24: 24-26) 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.
NEOM is also situated on both the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba:
NKJV (Revelation 18: 17-18) 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’
In NEOM is Mount Sinai situated, with its blackened top:
NKJV (Exodus 19:18) 18 Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.
This may be the place where the false prophet makes fire coming down from heaven (Rev. 13:13). Many rich people will want to live in the ‘safe’ Neom. God warns his people to stay away from the great Babylon or to come out of her:
NKJV (Revelation 18: 4-5) 4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
NKJV (Jeremiah 51: 6-9) 6 Flee from the midst of Babylon, And every one save his life! Do not be cut off in her iniquity, For this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He shall recompense her. 7 Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, That made all the earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; Therefore the nations are deranged. 8 Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed. Wail for her! Take balm for her pain; Perhaps she may be healed. 9 We would have healed Babylon, But she is not healed. Forsake her, and let us go everyone to his own country; For her judgment reaches to heaven and is lifted up to the skies.
It will be this place NEOM, where the image (or Satan) must be worshiped and from where all those who do not want to participate in this idolatry, the Christians, will be persecuted:
NKJV (Revelation 18:24) 24 And in her (this city) was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.
NKJV (Revelation 17: 6) 6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
The great Babylon (a place of idolatry) will fall just like the old Babylon, because of the idolatry:
NKJV (Isaiah 21: 9) 9 And look, here comes a chariot of men with a pair of horsemen!” Then he answered and said, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen! And all the carved images of her gods He has broken to the ground.”
CSB (Isaiah 24:10) 10 The city of chaos is shattered; every house is closed to entry.
The great Babylon, NEOM, will be completely destroyed:
NKJV (Revelation 14: 8) 8 And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
NKJV (Revelation 16: 18-19) 18…. and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
NKJV (Revelation 18:21) 21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.
Islam attacks Israel; the US as world power helps Israel and comes to its end
The attack of Islam
Then something remarkable happens in the very last days, the king of the south will attack:
NKJV (Daniel 11: 40-41) 40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown….
The king of the north (US) will invade the Glorious Land to protect it from the king of the south. Israel is the Glorious Land in Scripture:
NKJV (Ezekiel 20: 6) 6 On that day I raised My hand in an oath to them, to bring them out of the land of Egypt into a land that I had searched out for them, ‘flowing with milk and honey,’ the glory of all lands.
Hypothesis king south: This king of the south (geographically south of Israel) could be Saudi Arabia, but possibly also Shiite Iran.
All people must worship the image and thus worship the Antichrist with the Talmud Judaism.
The messiah of the Jews will sell lies as being the real Messiah. He will glorify Muhammad and Jesus as prophets to deceive the people and will do great signs.
According to the Jews, also Islam will be non-Jewish and ‘goyim’. The Muslims will feel betrayed.
Satan doesn’t care that Muslims fight against Jews and will kill each other.
Hypothesis king north: This king of the north will most likely be the last and 7th world power, the US, possibly together with NATO.
Rumors from the east and from the north will frighten the king of the north:
NKJV (Daniel 11: 44-45) 44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.
The 7th world power, the US, will be defeated in the Glorious Land and will not be helped.
Hypothesis country from the east: China has invested heavily in US government bonds. According to Bloomberg news agency, the debt is more than 1000 billion dollars.
Now with the recent trade war and opposition from the US, China may feel cheated and wanting to declare war on the 7th world power, the US.
Hypothesis country from the north: Russia has been approached by the US and NATO up to their border line and has also to deal with a trade war. Russia sees its oil and gas interests damaged, the US has special ties with Saudi Arabia and Qatar as oil and gas suppliers. When China declares war on the US, it is quite possible that Russia will want to join in.
(See also: end time 1. The book Daniel https://www.dojc.nl/?p=1604&lang=en)
Also the 8th financial world power, the central banks, will come to its end:
NKJV (Daniel 8: 23-25) 23 “And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, [Antichrist and the financial system of central banks] Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. 24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; [by the 10 kings together with the image of the wild beast] He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. [persecution of Christians] 25 “Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. [the 8th world power is full of blasphemous names (Rev. 17: 3)] He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means. [he will – together with the 10 kings – wage war against the Christ and His army, but will be destroyed by Jesus]
NKJV (Revelation 17: 12-14) 12 The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
At that moment, the real Messiah will come and the faithful Christians will be saved:
NKJV (Luke 21: 25-28) 25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
Don’t be lukewarm, lukewarm Christians will be spit out at Jesus’ coming (Rev. 3:16):
NKJV (Luke 18: 8) 8…. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
NKJV (Proverbs 27:11) 11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, That I may answer him who reproaches me.
We must never forget that the Son of God gave His life for us (Rom. 5: 8-9), for sinners.
That love for us is priceless because we are justified by Jesus’ blood.
Therefore never be discouraged. Christians are immediately labeled with words as ignorant, weak and religious fanatics because they firmly believe in Jesus’ words:
NKJV (Ephesians 2: 1-3) 1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
NKJV (Matthew 10:22) 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
The ordinary Jewish people will realize during the second coming that their leaders have not distinguished the real Messiah in those days.
They will mourn for Jesus:
NKJV (Zechariah 12:10) 10 And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.
Don’t be carried away by Talmud propaganda or Jewish wealth. Christians are not interested in financial wealth but in spiritual wealth (Matt. 6: 19-20).
Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, not against Talmud Jews or against Muslims, but against Satan and his demons (Ephesians 6:12). The Jews and Muslims are also being deceived. God will judge all people, including the children of Satan (Newsletters: 14. Vengeance is Mine! https://www.dojc.nl/?p=7647&lang=en). Don’t show anger or revenge, just show forgiveness:
NKJV (Matthew 6: 14-15) 14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
NKJV (Matthew 5: 5) 5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
Also love one another as Christians just as Jesus loved us (John 13:34).
An eternal reward awaits loving Christians:
NKJV (Isaiah 60:21) 21 Also your people shall all be righteous; They shall inherit the land forever….
NKJV (Revelation 7:17) 17….And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
