July 20, 2015 – Could the Temple be a Great Deception?

This is one of the best teachings I’ve heard on Hebrews in a very long time since Monte Judah said Hebrews was an invalid book and many believed him or those with an anti-semitic, anti-Torah message.   This man, Tom Stapleton,  confirmed thoughts I have had for years regarding the Temple in Jerusalem without passing judgment on the Jewish people or twisting Scripture.    

Highlights for Me

There will be a Temple (it’s part of God’s plan to destroy the enemy who desires and will steal His worship).  – 1 Thessalonians 2:3-4

It must have its services including sacrifices because that’s the requirement of having a Temple or even a Tabernacle.  The Levites will perform their duties because that is their duty and calling when there is a Temple.  However, it will not be as it should be because the Levites have never been refined and purified as they ought. – Malachi 3:3

The Abomination of Desolation will sit in the Temple being built now. – Matthew 24:14-20

The Third Temple being built now is NOT Ezekiel’s Temple vision.    When the glory of the Lord returns and puts his feet on the Mount of Olives, Messiah Yeshua will cleanse the Temple being built now.  He will come against and remove the lawless one who has usurped ‘David’s throne.’  It will be the Hanukkah of all Hanukkahs!  Jerusalem will be made level at that time.

Ezekiel’s prophesied Temple will be built at the hands of Yeshua and it will be inspired by the Spirit of the Living God. –  Zechariah 14:4, Isaiah 40:1-5

These Jewish men of priestly descent,  though noble in heart and mind as they are, do not have the Spirit of God directing them as did those who built the Tabernacle.   The implements though beautiful gold and silver and purposeful in administering the Temple sacrifices and duties are not created through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, but by descriptions of historical accounts.  

All nations will come to this Temple to worship ‘the one’ they think is God.  The holy area will be trampled upon by gentiles until the time of the gentiles is over (about 3 1/2 years).  – Luke 21:24

When the Temple services begin again with a Levitical, everything will seem great to the Jewish people who have longed for its restoration and the nations in the world.  There will finally be the peace everyone desires, but it will be a false peace.  The daily sacrifices will be stopped and the camouflage of the ‘man of sin’ will be revealed. – 2 Corinthians 11:14

Realizing the error of their ways, the idolatry they allowed in the Temple of the Most High, all  Jerusalem will cry out for Messiah, but on some level it will be too late. – Matthew 23:39.

Those who have accepted this man of lawlessness’ deception will serve him until it’s appointed ending time.  Appointed NOT by ‘the one’ sitting as the abomination, but the ONE who has ordained appointed times – the God of Israel.

All those who put their faith in Yeshua and trust Him as their High Priest and part of a royal priesthood need to protect themselves from the deception. – Hebrews 4:14, 1 Peter 2:9

Where I I differ a little from this man’s teaching regarding Jerusalem has to do with the Millennial Kingdom.   I believe the royal priesthood will minister to Yeshua in Ezekiel’s Temple in Jerusalem for 1000 years while the Levites will minister to the multitudes of people to whom they have always subjected themselves.   There will be a two-fold priesthood at the same time; one that is immortal having been raised from the dead and/or changed into immortality along with the mortal Levitical priesthood that was given an eternal covenant by God through Aaron.  In a cleansed and ‘rebuilt’  Temple according to the will of God, Yeshua will rule and reign the nations of the world with an iron rod for 1000 years.

After the 1000 years according to Revelation, Satan is released and the judgement seat of God follows.   The new heavens and new earth will bring forth the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven when God Himself, Yahweh Himself will live with mankind.  – Revelation 21:1-4

Understanding all of the implications happening with the Temple and Jerusalem today, should we not be more vocal about Yeshua to the Jewish people so they know they have their ‘sacrificial’ system in the Lamb of God who took away their sins?  

Should we not speak to them about their High Priest who is Yeshua and who has become their Intercessor and Mediator between them and God? – 1 Timothy 2:5

Should we not obey our calling as the nations to make the Jewish people envious for their own Jewish Messiah so they are not deceived and lead the world onto a path of deception and destruction rather than being a light to those nations? – Romans 11:11

Mr. Stapleton talked about all the ‘false’ signs and wonders that the anti-christ will do in order to receive the worship of the Most High God including fire that consumes the Altar of Sacrifice, the ‘sign’ of an acceptable sacrifice.   However, he didn’t mention the ‘sign’ of the Son of Man. The ‘sign’ of Yeshua’s coming will be as lightning comes from the east to the west and all who look upon him will mourn knowing they have been deceived. – Matthew 24:30-31

In the words of Hebrews and 1 Thessalonains: Encourage each other as you see ‘the day’ of the great deception approaching and plant seeds.  Jerusalem is still where God has placed His Name and He WILL redeem it back to Himself.  HalleluYah!  Thank you April Morasco for posting the video!

    Yes,I concur with you.
    Yeshua Is our Royal Melchizadek High Priest.
    The Levites, will be serving concurrently, in the Millennial Kingdom! A 2-fold Priesthood!
    Thank You.
    Baruch Haba B’Shem Adonai!

      Baruch Haba B’Shem Adonai! It will be an amazing time in the history of this world with Yeshua finally taking his place as High Priest (and King) in the Millennial Kingdom with a 2-fold priesthood. I can’t even imagine. Of course, what follows will be even more astounding with the New Jerusalem. Todah rabah for the encouragement, Shirley.
