The Rebuilding of the Jewish Temple

Written by Michael Bradley

The Jewish people were able to recover their homeland Israel and their main city Jerusalem, but they were not able to recoverrepparttar Temple Mount, which isrepparttar 140558 ground they want to rebuild their Holy Temple on. Right now, there is a Muslim Mosque on that site calledrepparttar 140559 Dome ofrepparttar 140560 Rock. The Muslims obviously have no intentions anytime soon on removing their Mosque to allowrepparttar 140561 Jews to rebuild their Holy Temple.

However, this Jewish Temple has to be rebuilt once again in order for allrepparttar 140562 prophecies inrepparttar 140563 Bible to be fulfilled. The Jewish people have already made plans as to how they will rebuild it should they ever getrepparttar 140564 chance. Apparently it will only take about 2 years to rebuild it again once God supernaturally clearsrepparttar 140565 way for them to be able do it.

The 1st Temple was built by King Solomon back inrepparttar 140566 Old Testament. It was then destroyed in 586 BC. The Temple was then rebuilt a second time around 26 BC and then once more destroyed byrepparttar 140567 Romans in 70 AD whenrepparttar 140568 Jews were dispersed out of Rome and into allrepparttar 140569 other nations ofrepparttar 140570 world.

The Temple has to be rebuilt once again because there is an event involvingrepparttar 140571 Antichrist calledrepparttar 140572 "Abomination of Desolation." Remember those 3 words!! When this event happens, we literally have a countdown of 42 months before Jesus comes back. Whatrepparttar 140573 Antichrist does on this event is to seat himself inrepparttar 140574 Temple of God proclaiming himself to be God, and from this point on,repparttar 140575 second half ofrepparttar 140576 tribulation takes place, which will haverepparttar 140577 greatest persecution of Jews and Christiansrepparttar 140578 world has ever seen!
The Antichrist cannot seat himself in this Temple unless it has already been rebuilt. The consensus is that inrepparttar 140579 first three and half years ofrepparttar 140580 Tribulation,repparttar 140581 Antichrist will establish some kind of peace treaty or covenant with Israel. He will allowrepparttar 140582 rebuilding ofrepparttar 140583 Temple, and once that is completed, he will then break his pact with Israel and seat himself inrepparttar 140584 Temple proclaiming to be God. Remember, it will only take 2 years to rebuildrepparttar 140585 Temple, so this could easily happen inrepparttar 140586 first half ofrepparttar 140587 7 year tribulation.

Rise of the Antichrist, False Prophet and a 10 Nation Confederacy

Written by Michael Bradley

The Bible says that an unholy trinity will arise inrepparttar latter days. This unholy trinity will be Satan,repparttar 140557 Antichrist andrepparttar 140558 False Prophet. Satan is calledrepparttar 140559 Dragon in Revelations. He has always wanted to be like God, if not God, and this will be his one and only chance to actually "play God" inrepparttar 140560 last 7 years on earth. Satan will takerepparttar 140561 role of Godrepparttar 140562 Father,repparttar 140563 Antichrist will takerepparttar 140564 role of Jesus andrepparttar 140565 False Prophet will takerepparttar 140566 role ofrepparttar 140567 Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit's job is to lead people to Jesus. Inrepparttar 140568 same way,repparttar 140569 False Prophet will berepparttar 140570 one to leadrepparttar 140571 world to serverepparttar 140572 Antichrist. He will be instrumental in arranging for people to haverepparttar 140573 mark ofrepparttar 140574 beast put on either their right hands or their foreheads.

The 10 nation confederacy will be 10 nations thatrepparttar 140575 Antichrist and False Prophet will rule from. The consensus is thatrepparttar 140576 10 nation confederacy will be 10 nations from Europe. Right now, there are 25 countries in what is calledrepparttar 140577 European Union. Byrepparttar 140578 timerepparttar 140579 Antichrist gets ready to take center stage, there can only be 10 countries left to fulfill Scripture.

I'm going to listrepparttar 140580 main verses from Scripture having to do withrepparttar 140581 Antichrist,repparttar 140582 False Prophet andrepparttar 140583 10 nation confederacy that they will rule from. Read these verses very carefully! You are getting an incredible look intorepparttar 140584 future fromrepparttar 140585 Word of God as to what will becoming our way!

1. The Antichrist is calledrepparttar 140586 Beast,repparttar 140587 Lawless One,repparttar 140588 Man of Sin andrepparttar 140589 Son of Perdition inrepparttar 140590 following verses. The first verse is right out of Revelations.

"Then I stood onrepparttar 140591 sand ofrepparttar 140592 sea. And I saw a beast rising up out ofrepparttar 140593 sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name ... andrepparttar 140594 dragon gave him his power, his throne and great authority. I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded and his deadly wound was healed. And allrepparttar 140595 world marveled and followedrepparttar 140596 beast. So they worshipedrepparttar 140597 dragon who gave authority torepparttar 140598 beast, and worshipedrepparttar 140599 beast, saying, "Who is likerepparttar 140600 beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blaspheming against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was granted to him to make war withrepparttar 140601 saints and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe, tongue and nation. And all who dwell onrepparttar 140602 earth will worship him, whose names have not been written inrepparttar 140603 Book of Life ofrepparttar 140604 Lamb slain fromrepparttar 140605 foundation ofrepparttar 140606 world." (Revelations 13:1-10)

Jesus isrepparttar 140607 Lamb. Notice that Satan isrepparttar 140608 one who arranges to give full power torepparttar 140609 Antichrist to be able to rule withrepparttar 140610 power and authority that he will have. This verse literally tells us thatrepparttar 140611 Antichrist will have full rule overrepparttar 140612 entire world for a short period of time before Jesus finally comes back to defeat him.

2. The next verse tells you thatrepparttar 140613 10 horns mentioned inrepparttar 140614 above verse are 10 kings - 10 nations that will give their allegiance torepparttar 140615 Antichrist.

"Andrepparttar 140616 ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdoms as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings withrepparttar 140617 beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority torepparttar 140618 beast. These will make war withrepparttar 140619 Lamb, andrepparttar 140620 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." (Revelations 17:12-14)
3. The next verse comes fromrepparttar 140621 prophet Daniel out ofrepparttar 140622 Old Testament. Daniel was given very powerful dreams and visions as to what was going to happen atrepparttar 140623 end of time. The first verse was a dream given to him by God onrepparttar 140624 Antichrist. This verse also tells you thatrepparttar 140625 Antichrist will be a man!
"After this I saw inrepparttar 140626 night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces and tramplingrepparttar 140627 residue with its feet. It was different from allrepparttar 140628 other beasts before it, and it had ten horns. I was consideringrepparttar 140629 horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three ofrepparttar 140630 first horns were plucked out byrepparttar 140631 roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes likerepparttar 140632 eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words." (Daniel 7:7-8)
Notice Daniel's description ofrepparttar 140633 Antichrist. He tells us that this man will berepparttar 140634 worst dictatorrepparttar 140635 world has ever seen. He will make Hitler look pale in comparison to what he is going to do once he gets on center stage. He says this beast is different than allrepparttar 140636 other beasts that have ever come before him and that he will be terrible, dreadful and exceedingly strong!

The above verse also implies that 3 ofrepparttar 140637 kingdoms underrepparttar 140638 Antichrist may not at first go willingly under his rule. He will have to subdue them to get their allegiance as will be shown inrepparttar 140639 next verse.

4. The next verse from Daniel also interpretsrepparttar 140640 10 horns as being 10 kingdoms. It goes on to say thatrepparttar 140641 Antichrist will subdue 3 of these kings. It also says that he will be allowed to persecuterepparttar 140642 saints of God for three and half years. An Angel from God is giving him this message.

Thus he said: "The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devourrepparttar 140643 whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces. The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall arise after them: He shall be different fromrepparttar 140644 first ones, and shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words againstrepparttar 140645 Most High, shall persecuterepparttar 140646 saints ofrepparttar 140647 Most High, shall intend to change times and laws. Thenrepparttar 140648 saints shall be given into his hand for a time, and times and half a time." (Daniel 7:23-25)
A time = 1 year. Times = 2 years. Half a time = half a year. This comes to a total of three and half years. The first verse from Revelations 13:1-10 - states he will have authority to continue for 42 months which is also three and half years.
