Topic: THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM
Isaiah 44:24,28 (KJV)
 Thus saith the Lord , thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;  That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
Jerusalem is the land of contention, and the temple in Jerusalem is of great significance as far as the end-time is concerned. What happens in Jerusalem in relation the reconstruction of the third Jewish Temple, will point to the fulfillment of biblical prophecy regarding this end-time.
The ground is set for the final peace treaty between Israel and her Palestinian neigbours. With Israel having moved their capital from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, the likelihood of they reconstructing the third Jewish Temple as “a house of prayer for all people” is very high. In Isaiah 56:7, God spoke through Prophet Isaiah as to how His house shall be called a house of prayer for all people. This is what the Jews have always sought to implement. Interestingly, the very site where the first and second Temples were constructed, and where the Jews seek to build the third Temple, is the very place where the Palestinians have constructed the Dome of the Rock shrine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This is what makes Jerusalem the land of contention, but this is what will lead to the emergence of an influential person, believed to be the antichrist, who will guarantee for a final peace treaty between Israel and her Palestinian neigbours.
Scripture is silent about the content of the final peace treaty, but it will be such that, Israel will agree to dwell at peace with her neigbours. The room will be created for the Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. When you see these things happening, know that the rapture is at hand!
