The Apostle Paul was born into the tribe of Benjamin as a descendant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is one of the most famous Israelis of all time. He was also a Pharisee and persecuted the early Church Christians not long after the death of Yahshua ha Meshiak (Jesus the Messiah). He was guilty of throwing many Christians into prison and aiding in their slaughter. Saul of Tarsus, as he was known at the time, was on one of these persecuting missions to Damascus, when he was stopped cold in his tracks by Christ Himself, as recorded in the Book of Acts chapter nine. At that time Saul was not a believer, but he was a changed man after that day. In first Corinthians 15:5-8, Paul gives a list of people who saw Christ alive after He was crucified and buried, and he includes himself in the list. This same Paul wrote a large part of the New Testament under the anointing of the Holy Spirit and he wrote in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” Please notice, that the man of sin, also known as the anti-Christ, sits in the temple of God. This event is still in the future, and the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to write about it. Fact: the temple of God will be built once again. Every single prophesy ever made in the Holy Bible has come to pass at the proper time, and never has one of these prophesies failed. Prophesies made hundreds of years in advance have come to pass perfectly. This is an exciting facet of Judaism and Christianity, that proves beyond any reasonable doubt the trustworthiness of YaHVeH, Yahshua and the Holy Bible. Micah 5:2 prophesied hundreds of years in advance, that the Messiah would be born in the city Bethlehem/Ephratah and that His goings forth have been from eternity past. Isaiah 9:6-7 prophesied that this Messiah Son would be Almighty God. Isaiah 7:14 prophesied, that a virgin would give birth to a son called Immanuel/God with us. Psalms 22:6 prophesied that this person’s hands and feet would be pierced. Isaiah fifty-three prophesied, that this Messiah would suffer horrendously for our sins. There are many more prophesies in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, that Yahshua ha Meshiak fulfilled to exact details. I want to say it again: The Holy Spirit inspired the Apostle Paul to write about the future temple that will be built. It is no accident that Jews wail at the Wailing Wall (Western Wall) over the destruction of the first and second temples.
It is no wonder that Satan incites so much opposition against Christians, against Israel, and against the Holy Bible. Satan realizes the integrity of Almighty God and he fears Him greatly. Satan/Lucifer knows what is written in Revelation chapter twenty about his being bound and cast into the abyss. He knows that his time is short and he is afraid and filled with fury. It is no wonder that the Muslims are filled with anger every time Jews ascend the Temple Mount. It is no wonder that Allah is afraid, that Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock will be destroyed. It is no wonder, that Muslims and Arabs feel such hostility and panic at every move made by the nation of Israel. YaHVeH the God of Israel and of Christianity has demonstrated His sovereignty and great power again and again. It seemed like the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:8 would never come to pass. From the time Israel was dispersed among the nations in 70 A.D. until 1948 A. D.,when Israel once again became a nation, was 1878 years. Can you imagine that? Israel supernaturally maintained its identity for over 1800 years and has again taken possession of its ancient land from which it was exiled. This in itself is a miracle. You better believe Allah and the Muslims are afraid of what YaHVeH is doing. You better believe that the rulers of the earth are nervous about Israel. Just as sure as Israel fulfilled the prophesy of returning and taking possession of their ancient homeland, they will also rebuild their temple when the time is right. There are not enough armies in the world to stop it from happening. There are not enough Muslims and Arabs in the world to stop the fulfillment of YaHVeH’s prophecy concerning the temple. Go ahead you rulers and peoples of the earth and try to divide the land of Israel and try to stop the words of YaHVeH. It is an exercise in futility and will be frustrated at every turn. Blessed be the name of YaHVeH, whose promises and testimonies are sure and reliable. Blessed be the name of YaHVeH, who reigns eternally in wisdom and in power. Blessed be the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose name is YaHVeH. Blessed be YaHVeH’s Son Yahshua, who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Blessed be YaHVeH’s Son Yahshua, who has washed us from our sins in His own blood. Blessed be YaHVeh for the promise of eternal life for all those who put their trust in Yahshua His Son.
