THE CONSTRUCTION of the ‘Third Temple’ is near, according to doomsday forecasters who believe we will soon see the end of the world.
There were two Holy Temples of Jerusalem built on the Temple Mount, a key place of worship. Both were destroyed — firstly by the Babylonians and the by the Romans. But according to some biblical apocalyptic forecasters, when, or if, a third temple is built, it will signify the end of the world and the return of Jesus Christ.
The latest claims come from conspiracy theorist blog Sign Posts of the Times, which says when the Third Temple is built, the Antichrist will appear.
Following that, Jesus Christ will return to Earth where he will usher in the apocalypse and judge mankind for their sins, according to the blog.
The authors of the blog point to several Bible versus which they state back up their claims.
The first is John 5:43 NIV which reads: «I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.»
Thessalonians 2:4 NIV said: «He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.»
John 2:2 NIV said: «He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.»
After the events of 2020, including the coronavirus pandemic and wildfires which have ravaged southwestern US and Australia, the authors of Sign Posts of the Times believe the end is edging closer.
The blog says: «As for the future Temple, we know from scripture that there must be a Tribulation Temple, (the Third Temple), on the heights of Mount Moriah, in which this future Man of Sin will enter to declare himself to be God or the Messiah, (false Christ), the world has been waiting for.
«Time is very short. Events could play our quicker and sooner than one can imagine (Just look at all that has taken place in the year 2020 and we aren’t even done yet with this eventful year).
«Are you ready for Christ’s return? Are you ready to meet the Son of the Living God, the true Messiah, the one who has paid the penalty for the sins of the world?
«We pray you are ready to meet the Lord in the air. Let that be your hope in these crazy days we now live in.»
However, fear not, as any scientist would tell you the apocalypse is not around the corner, and end of the world predictions have been happening for centuries — none of which have happened.
Time & Date said: «The end of the world is near—again! For centuries, doomsdayers have prophesied the apocalypse.
«But there’s a tiny catch: None of the end-of-world predictions ever come true.»
