The Restoration of the Jewish People

Written by Michael Bradley

This isrepparttar event that has already occurred. In 70 AD, after Jesusí death onrepparttar 140559 cross,repparttar 140560 Jewish people were dispersed throughoutrepparttar 140561 entire world. The Romans destroyed their one and only Temple and they were then scattered throughoutrepparttar 140562 whole world as prophesied inrepparttar 140563 Old Testament as a result of their failure to get their act together with Godrepparttar 140564 Father. Godrepparttar 140565 Father pronounced this judgment onrepparttar 140566 Jewish people as you get nearrepparttar 140567 end ofrepparttar 140568 Old Testament.

However, God then says after pronouncing this judgment on them - that He will still be their God, that He will still keeprepparttar 140569 pact and covenant that He had made with their earlier forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - and that He would bring them back to their homeland Israel atrepparttar 140570 end of time - shortly before Jesus would come back to our earth for His second coming. Here are 2 specific verses telling us this.

  1. "I will bring backrepparttar 140571 captives of My people Israel; they shall buildrepparttar 140572 waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them: they shall make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up fromrepparttar 140573 land I have given them," saysrepparttar 140574 Lord your God. (Amos 9:14-15)
  2. "It shall come to pass in that day thatrepparttar 140575 Lord shall set His hand againrepparttar 140576 second time to recoverrepparttar 140577 remnant of His people who are left, from Assyria and Egypt, from Pathros and Cush ... He will set up a banner forrepparttar 140578 nations, and will assemblerepparttar 140579 outcasts of Israel and gather togetherrepparttar 140580 dispersed of Judah fromrepparttar 140581 four corners ofrepparttar 140582 earth." (Isaiah 11:11-12)

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.
