    The request reads: "Children wanted for Future Temple service. Ultra-orthodox Jewish sect is searching for parents willing to hand over newborn sons to be raised in isolation and purity in preparation for the rebuilding of the biblical temple in Jerusalem. Only members of the Jewish priestly caste, the Kohanim need apply..."

    Words from an ancient scroll discovered in a recent archeological dig? Or perhaps an excerpt from a Hollywood screenplay for some biblical epic? Actually, those words appeared in the contemporary Israeli newspaper, Haaretz.1

    Concerns and conflicts that might seem ancient and antiquated to westerners are, in fact, current events in the Middle East. And no subject is more controversial or fraught with more emotional TNT than rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem.

    A recent poll conducted by the Panels Institute in Israel revealed that almost two thirds of today's Israeli Jews want to see the Temple in Jerusalem rebuilt. Commenting on the poll, Rabbi Danny Draper said, "We are a nation with a remarkable historic affinity. The Temple was destroyed 1,942 years ago, and almost two thirds of the population want to see it rebuilt, including 47% of seculars" .

    A desire to see the temple rebuilt is anti-Christ.

    A desire to see the temple rebuilt is a desire to see Jesus Christ return to physically rule and reign for a thousand years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

    Tear down the Mosque on the temple site? Never happen without WW3 and the US must oppose it.

    You do realize that if a 3rd temple is built that the most likely one to sit in it and declare himself God will be the man of sin. Read 2 Th. 2.

    The tabernacle, and later the two temples, were figures for the time then present. They were figures of the true. The true tabernacle, the true living temple where the great sacrifice was to be made was the body of Jesus Christ. That temple ceased to mean anything once that event took place. Building a new temple today = meaningless.

    Of course it is meaningless for Christians in a religious way. Yes, the man of sin will proclaim himself to be God from the temple and yes he will make the sacrifice of abomination the makes desolate. However, it is necessary and it will happen and it means we are a step closer to the Lord's return. Therefore, I have no joy in the rebuilding of the temple or in the rise of the anti-Christ, except that afterward my Lord and Saviour will return to establish his kingdom.

    While my earnest expectation is to see the return of my Savior in all His glory to gather His ransomed people, I do not desire to see the temple rebuilt, nor to see such ungodly events unfold. While they signal the second coming of Jesus, they also signal a time of unprecedented persecution.

    Depends on one's eschatological bent.

    Not if one studies the clear teaching of scripture.

    I believe we both believe that Jesus is coming again. The eschatological details are what I'm talking about.

    And scripture clearly teaches that things will get bad here on earth before Christ returns to gather in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth.

    Yes, and that's why I'm not a postmillennialist.

    I'm sure I'll be called a liberal or be accused of not believing the bible, or some such nonsense, but here goes:

    Jesus said "destroy THIS temple...". He wasn't referring to a physical building. There's reason to believe that the third temple is the spiritual temple, not a literal building.

    The temple Jesus was referring to was His body.

    And the writer to the Hebrews made that clear as well (10:19-20).
