There is much conjecture as to how and when we will witness the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. The thing is we are about 2,000 years too late; God has fully rebuilt the temple and it has become a house of prayer for all nations.
Now I know I might be treading on some toes and I don’t pretend to be an authority on the ‘End Times’, but hear me out.
What did Jesus say?
After turning the tables and freeing the animals in the Gentile Court, the Jews demanded to know by whose authority Jesus created such chaos. His response is fascinating:
“Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” John 2:19
Jesus is being very deliberate in His words, He knew the Jews would think He meant the building they were standing in, but verse 21 tells us that He was speaking of His body. The question then is why would He say this and leave the Jews believing something different?
