The revived Sanhedrin of Israel has noted that this is an unprecedented time in post-modern history when two of the most influential world leaders–US President Elect Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin–support Israel’s claim to Jerusalem as its capital. Vladimir Putin in 2012, because of his membership in the Russian Orthodox Church, visited the Western Wall to pray. When an Israeli spotted Putin there, he greeted him with a brief history of how important the site was to the Jewish people and how they expected a Third Temple to eventually be built. Putin then responded that the Third Temple was what he was praying for also.
The hopes for that temple have now risen substantially given how Trump and Putin are in agreement with Israel about Jerusalem and the spokesman for the Sanhedrin, Rabbi Hillel Weiss, is of the opinion that the two men can fulfill a prophetic role similar to Persian king Cyrus in the Old Testament. Cyrus the Great felt led by Jehovah, in fulfillment of prophecy, to decree that a considerable amount of the Persian kingdom’s funds should be distributed to Jewish leaders for the rebuilding of the temple. The Sanhedrin also believes it is imperative to act quickly since Palestinian Muslims and other Muslims have used their influence with UNESCO to try to rewrite history by attempting to erase the ties that the Temple Mount has to ancient Israel. Such a move by Putin and Trump, they believe, will usher in an age of world peace.
However, the Sanhedrin are deceived about that since the only way world peace will really come is by the true Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, whom they have rejected. The Third Temple will indeed fulfill God’s prophecies, but not in the way they assume. The temple will actually be a sign that will ultimately usher in the time of Jacob’s trouble and will be a sign for Christians to sit up and take notice as incidents will fall into place more quickly to welcome the ultimate false Christ, called the beast and the Antichrist, who will use the temple as leverage for a covenant of peace that he will betray in the worst way. It will prompt God to be glorified in the judgments he will pour out for the great tribulation to come.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains… Matthew 24
