The Dome on the Rock mosque won’t need to be taken out. I waded through Hezekiah’s tunnel ending at the Gihon Spring, when I visited Israel in the ’80s. And in the ’90s, Mom and I saw the impressive model of 1st century Jerusalem at the Israeli museum shown in this video. Never did I think that the model could have been false. Experts tell why here.
I saw a Chuck Missler presentation of this misnomer a few years ago. This video is really good, because it also clearly shows who will rule from the rebuilt temple. It’s not going to be pretty.
Surprisingly, they give two references to the antichrist ruling from the rebuilt temple, but don’t include the main one: 2 Thess. 2.:
3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way, for that day will not come until the REBELLION occurs and the MAN OF LAWLESSNESS is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he SETS HIMSELF UP IN GOD’S TEMPLE [the third temple in Jerusalem], PROCLAIMING HIMSELF TO BE GOD.
21:30 The western wall, or “wailing wall” is not part of Herod’s temple, but the Antonio Fortress, a Roman fort.
The temple was actually by the Gihon Spring.
28:12 The model of Jerusalem at the Israeli Museum shows the Antonio Fortress being much too small, because the temple shouldn’t be there at all.
31:30 Where the original temple once stood: the City of David on the SE ridge of Jerusalem (min.-48)
34 The rock under the Dome of the Rock was a Christian site.
37 “No stone left” prophesy fulfilled
43 Rebuilding of the Jewish temple will start the 7-year tribulation period where the antichrist will reign from
