No Temple? Then, No Antichrist. And, No Rapture, Yet.
The Timing of the Rapture is a puzzle. All of the pieces have to be in place before the last piece is put in place.
Everybody is looking towards various events like wars and rumors of wars, pestilences, famines, earthquakes, etc. They are also looking for the antichrist and the ten 'kings'.
One obvious piece that most are overlooking is the temple. You need the temple to be built so the sacrifices can start and the antichrist can go in, sit down and proclaim himself to be God. There are organizations working to bring the temple project to fruition. One organization is templeinstitute.org.
According to the biblical timeline the covenant with many takes place and then 220 days later the sacrifices start. 1070 days later the antichrist will go into the temple and proclaim himself to be God. 75 days after that the sun and moon will be darkened, the stars will 'fall' and then the sign of the Son of Man... ie the second coming of Christ. None of this can take place until the temple is built.
The irony with the temple being built is the Jews expect the Messiah to come once the temple is built. They will get their Messiah. He will come in the form of the antichrist and they will welcome him with open arms.
What prompted this post today is a question somebody asked me about Putin and the war with Ukraine... is this Gog and Magog? Another thing people get wrong is Gog and Magog. That event takes place after the millennial reign of Christ... which takes place after God pours out his wrath for 3.5 years after Christ returns. Gog and Magog is over a thousand years away.
What has been messing people up for years is the pre-trib rapture hoax. The pre-trib rapture teaching is simply a false teaching designed to violate 2 Thessalonians 2 where we are admonished to NOT let any one deceive us. Don't let anybody tell you the Day of Christ is AT HAND. He could come at any moment. He could come today. He could come before the end of this 'sermon'.
No. There are other things that have to take place first and it doesn't begin to get serious UNTIL the temple gets built.
