Part III

Since the time that the Jews liberated Jerusalem from Jordanian occupation the Temple Mount has taken on a much greater significance within the Moslem world, especially among the Arabs. A jihad against Israeli “occupation” of Jerusalem is not only permissible, but a holy duty. Hence, for this purpose the Temple Mount’s fortification is legitimate, and filling its chambers with military equipment is absolutely ingenious. 

What a fabulous hiding place! Who would imagine that beneath this Moslem shrine fanatical Islamic terrorists are building a sanctuary unto their jihad? Which Western power would demand of the Palestinians/Moslems to open up the underground system for the purpose of checking for secret military arsenals, as they have done and are doing with Saddam Hussein? Why, what an incredible uproar that would produce throughout the whole Moslem and Arab world? The decadent, imperialistic West demanding to go underneath a Moslem shrine? Unthinkable!

However, Purim 1995 is not forgotten, at which time Dr. Baruch Goldstein went to bring upon the heads of those who are planning every Israeli’s death their very own scheme, just as had happened in the days of Mordecai and queen Esther, being commemorated yearly at Purim26. Until this day BBC refers to this event as the “massacre at the cave of Machpelah”. What the world Media failed to report is how Dr. Goldstein was slaughtered. Suddenly the Palestinian “worshippers” whipped out swords, stashed away in a cache hidden beneath the floorboards! For which purpose might they have stashed them there, considering that Jews worship right next door, in the same building?!

The area marked purple is today's Western [Wailing] Wall known as "KOTEL". The area marked with the symbol of Islam [quarter moon and star] is where the Dome of the Rock stands, in the location where G-d's sanctuary once stood.


Hence, what an outstandingly perfect hiding place! What an excellent sanctuary unto the “god” of forces, terrorism and the jihad serving his purposes! What a sanctuary of strength, what an impregnable fortress of defense! In the very heart of Jerusalem! What an unbelievable desecration of the Holy Place! What a polluting -- with bloodshed and lawlessness, and every imaginable wickedness and lewdness, all that exalts itself against the knowledge of G-d and opposes Him and His people.

Furthermore, Daniel 12:11 does not make any mention of the Temple. It merely states in the Hebrew that the “continual” will be taken away, and likewise in Daniel 11:31, and that the abomination that makes desolate will be set up.

The key to this mystery are the words of our Lord Who speaks of the Holy Place. The Greek word for holy here is hagiõs, which in its sacredness and holiness is awe-inspiring, pure, blameless, i.e. most holy. The place instead is tõpõs, which is a spot, or place of limited occupancy, i.e. not a large place, but a small one, a specific location

This IS what the reader is supposed to understand: that anything other than the Temple of the G-d of Israel standing in that most holy spot  is an abomination, because it desecrates the place of which G-d promised that His heart and eyes would be there continually.

In reviewing shorthly the “ensemble of prophecies”:

 Daniel speaks of a sanctuary of strength;
 the Lord Yeshua speaks of a holy place;
 and Paul the apostle speaks of a most holy place.

But none of the prophecies mention the Temple proper. The Holy Spirit did not indicate the Third Temple having been built, in which then the “Man of sin” would set himself up. 
 
 

27 To dress up in costumes is doubtlessly a fun thing for the children, but Micky Mouse and Donald Duck have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the commemoration of Purim: for all Jews worldwide commemorate on that day how Haman’s plot to annihilate the Jewish people was overturned through the bravery and faith of Mordecai and queen Esther. For the king Ahasuerus, Esther’s husband, as a result of her courageous intervention, overturned Haman’s decree, and instead of the Jews being slaughtered, the Jews killed altogether 80,000 of their foes.
   Esther 9:1-2, 5-6, 14-16, 20-23: “Now in the twelfth month, that [is], the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king's commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)
2...The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.
5...Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them...
6...And in Shushan the palace the Jews slew and destroyed five hundred men.
14...And the king commanded it so to be done: and the decree was given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman's ten sons.
15... For the Jews that [were] in Shushan gathered themselves together on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and slew three hundred men at Shushan; but on the prey they laid not their hand.
16.. But the other Jews that [were] in the king's provinces gathered themselves together, and stood for their lives, and had rest from their enemies, and slew of their foes seventy and five thousand, but they laid not their hands on the prey,
20... And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters unto all the Jews that [were] in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, [both] nigh and far,
21... To stablish [this] among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly,
22... As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.
23... And the Jews undertook to do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had written unto them;”
