Luke 13: 35 "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord"
Bringing the Sandhedrin back? Well they are back [they just do not have their temple yet] Do not forget that is the group that condemned Jesus to death. The state of Rome then carried out the sentence.
61But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 63Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses? 64Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
This is all based in unbelief regarding Jesus Christ, by Jews who have not recognized Him as Messiah. That said, the deception regarding this temple as I described in my earlier article, will be immense. More and more the idea, that Jesus one day will 'reclaim' "this temple" supposedly from the Antichrist to rule from in a millenial kingdom, seems false. Reading scripture, there are many verses that speak of the "true temple"of God. I think those looking for it on earth are being mislead, and this of course ties into the evangelicals who believe animal sacrifices will be brought back in this temple, as I wrote on here.
2Ch 2:5 And the house which I build [is] great: for great [is] our God above all gods.
2Ch 2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who [am] I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?
Eph 2:19-22 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
Think about that verse, what is the TRUE TEMPLE Today? Answer: The Body of Christ.
People keep wrongly looking for things on this EARTH.
1Cr 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
How much plainer can it be? Do not look for "temples"on this earth especially those that have been built out of UNBELIEF. As this author writes:
Have you believed on Jesus Christ for salvation? He came into this world the first time that He might "put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Hebrews 9:26). And Hebrews 9:28 promises that "unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation". Don't wait until it's too late. Turn away from your sin, and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today.
