Practice Ceremonies for the 3rd Temple Continue

We have posted many times over the years about the 3rd Temple and it's relation to prophecy.  The Bible says that one day the Antichrist will sit in this yet to be built Temple and declare himself to be God and demand that the world worship him.

So of course, a Temple will be built.

Today we read that the Temple Priests continue to enact ceremonies in preparation of this soon coming Temple.

On Thursday, the day after the holiday of Shavuot, hundreds of people gathered in the Old CIty of Jerusalem for a reenactment of the Temple service known as bikurim, or the “bringing of the first fruits.” The ceremony included a special thanksgiving offering that sealed the recent Sanhedrin ruling establishing the boundaries of Jerusalem for the Third Temple.

The procession along the walls of the city to Tekuma Park was accompanied by musical instruments specially made for use in the Third Temple, and blasts from shofarot (ram horns), just as the Talmud described it in Temple times.

The ceremony was performed by Kohanim (men of the priestly caste) dressed in authentic garb as described in the Bible, led by Rabbi Baruch Kahane, who has played a prominent role in many of the Temple reenactments.

In the days of the First Temple, the first fruits of the annual harvest were brought to Jerusalem as an offering between the holidays of Shavuot (Festival of Weeks) and Sukkot (Festival of Booths). The fruits were brought in baskets, beautifully displayed, and given to the priests. For the reenactment, children from all over Israel presented Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, a member of the Sanhedrin, with first fruits they had gathered from their personal gardens.

The ceremony included bringing thanksgiving offerings of loaves specially prepared for the ceremony. The Sanhedrin has been involved in a study of the borders of Jerusalem, culminating in their official ruling. Just as in the days of the Temple and the original Sanhedrin, they marked this ruling by a thanksgiving offering, designating the borders of greater Jerusalem for the Third Temple era.

The rabbi explained that as a holy city and the location of the Temple, the boundaries of Jerusalem have Biblical implications and are not a matter for secular and political authorities to determine.

“These are the borders sanctified for purposes of the Third Temple, within which Jews will be permitted to eat their Paschal sacrifice and any other Temple purposes which may only be performed within the Holy City,” Rabbi Weiss said, citing the Prophet Zechariah to indicate the ramifications for impinging on the sanctified borders of the city.

For thus saith Hashem of hosts who sent me after glory unto the nations which spoiled you: ‘Surely he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:12

“The world is arguing about the history of Jerusalem, when all of that is written in the Bible,” said Rabbi Weiss. “While they try to rewrite the Bible, here in Jerusalem we are bringing the words to life. Precisely as they are written.”

Yes!  The world is arguing about the History of Jerusalem!  It has become a cup of trembling...exactly as the Bible said would happen in the last days.

Some of my Christian brothers will no doubt read these passages about Temples and say, "But Dennis, there won't be another Temple because our bodies are now the Temple that the Holy Spirit lives in!"

Yes, that is true, but this doesn't stop the Jew's desire for having a physical Temple since they have denied Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Paul was also VERY CLEAR when he said that God is not done with Israel and the Jews.

After the rapture of the church, all eyes will once again be focused on Israel and how God himself will bring an end to this incredible story.
