Building A Temple in Jerusalem

By Douglas V. Gibbs

As the madness descends upon the world, we remember that among the final puzzle pieces is the rebuilding of Soloman's Temple in Jerusalem.  The Muslims have claimed the Temple Mount for themselves.  The Eternal Capital of Jerusalem has belonged to the Jewish People for over 3,000 years.  Conquerors have made false claims to justify their attempt to conquer the mount, including the Islamic Jihad against Israel after the U.N. partition in 1947.  The Saudis issued a "fatwa" claiming they were trying to save the Al-Aqsa mosque from the Jews.  Then, Yassir Arafat claimed the Temple Mount to be the third holiest site for Islam, and included all of Jerusalem in his claim.  The claim was based on the mythical ascension of Muhammad from Al-Aqsa to Heaven - a story that grows more incredible with each telling.

A government minister from a nationalist religious party has called for the Jewish Temple to be rebuilt on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

A website that shows a representation of the Temple Mount as it would appear with a rebuilt Jewish Temple atop it rather than Al-Aqsa Mosque that currently stands there has been receiving tremendous backlash from Muslims.

Christians believe the rebuilding of Soloman's Temple on the Temple Mount is a key piece in the fulfillment of prophecy related to the End Times.
