Fervent Masonic Desire to Rebuild Solomon's Temple Will Result in Antichrist Setting Up His Throne on the Temple Mount
Is the Driving Force Behind the Events of the Mid-East Today; Once Completed, End Times' Prophecy Will Be Fulfilled!By David Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries
June 25, 2009
Illuminized Western Freemasonry has long desired to rebuild Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount. Masonic forces of the United Kingdom, United States, and Israel are absolutely determined to rebuild Solomon's Temple. This plan will bring about World War III, Antichrist, and the beginning of the Tribulation.
The New World Order is coming! Are you ready? Once you understand what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, you will be able to see it progressing in your daily news!!
Genuine Born Again Christians have normally not given King Solomon's Temple much thought, for we realize that Jesus Christ fulfilled all the types and shadows of the Old Testament law, of which the Temple was an integral part.
Jesus foretold in Matthew 24 that the glorious Herodian Temple, which was modeled after the Solomon Temple, would be totally destroyed. Listen:
"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, 'See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.'" [Matthew 24:2; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]History records that this Temple, which had so impressed Jesus' disciples, was destroyed in A.D. 70. It was destroyed by the Roman Army that had laid siege to the city; further, even though the soldiers were under strict orders to not destroy the Temple, they set fire to it, and caused that fire to burn so hot, for so long and so thoroughly, that the stones heated hot enough to turn the gold liquid, flowing out of even the mortars of the bricks. When the fire cooled, Jesus' prophecy was exactly fulfilled...
In New Testament Epistles, neither Paul nor any other Apostle emphasized the Temple; in fact, they virtually ignored it! The writer to the Hebrews made it quite clear that the Covenant of Jesus Christ completely abolished the First Covenant of which the magnificent Temple was such an important part. Listen to Hebrews:
"Now if perfection (a perfect relationship between God and the worshipper) had been attainable by the Levitical priesthood -- for under it the people were given the Law -- why was it further necessary that there should arise another, and different kind of Priest, one after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one appointed after the order and rank of Aaron? For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is of necessity an alteration in the law [concerning the priesthood) as well." [Hebrews 7:11-12; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]This passage makes it quite obvious that God considered the First Covenant to be defective and in dire need of replacement! And, when you change the covenant, you change the priesthood and the Law concerning the priesthood.
It does not take too much imagination to realize that if God was going to change the First Covenant and abolish its priesthood, He would abolish the Temple as well. For this reason, we read of God's action taken when Jesus was hanging on the cross, immediately after He "gave up the ghost:"
"And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom." [Matthew 27:51; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]God supernaturally ripped the Temple curtain separating the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies, while the sanctuary was filled with parishioners worshipping during the annual sacrifice for the sins of the Israel. Suddenly, they must have been filled with shock and fear as God abruptly ripped the curtain, throwing the Holy of Holies wide open. Many of them must have feared death, for no one could enter the Holy of Holies and live except for the High Priest, and he only once a year.
Tearing the curtain in two was God's signal that the First Covenant, with its Temple and priesthood, was now irrelevant, and was now to be replaced by His Second Covenant through Jesus Christ.
The writer to the Hebrews picks up this very theme:
"In keeping with [the oath's greater strength and force], Jesus has become the Guarantee of a better (stronger) agreement [a more excellent and more advantageous covenant]." [Hebrews 7:22; Ibid.]Did you catch that? "... ripe for disappearance and to be dispensed with altogether." Therefore, genuine Christians have virtually ignored the Solomon and Herodian Temples, except to arrive at a proper understanding of the Old Testament Covenant.
"When God speaks of a new [covenant or agreement], He makes the first one obsolete (out of use). And what is obsolete (out of use and annulled because of age) is ripe for disappearance and to be dispensed with altogether." [Hebrews 8:13; Ibid.]
We certainly understand that God destroyed the Temple because He had instituted the superior Second Covenant through the new superior High Priest, Jesus Christ. To us, the Solomon Temple is just an interesting piece of Ancient History! But, not so with the pagan Freemasons. In their religion, the Temple plays a very, very important role.
MASONS DECLARE FREEMASONRY TO BE A RELIGION!
Let us stop here for a moment to dispense with the current Masonic lie that their organization is not a religion. Let us review some quotes:
"Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion, and its teachings are an instruction in religion." ["Morals and Dogma," Albert Pike, p. 231-L]Do not be deceived: Freemasonry is a religion!
"It [Masonry] is the universal, eternal, immutable religion, such as God planted it in the heart of universal humanity." [Ibid., p. 219-M]
"But the Masonic organizations in which these legends were cherished, like Masonic Lodges today, were religious bodies." [The Holy Bible: The Great Light In Masonry," King James Version, Temple Illustrated Edition, A.J. Holman Company, 1968, p. 26]
"... Masonry may rightfully claim to be called a religious institution." ["A New and Revised Edition: An Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry and Its Kindred Sciences," by Albert Mackey, M.D., 33º, Volume II, p. 618.
THE SOLOMON TEMPLE IS THE HEART AND SOUL OF FREEMASONRY!
Now that we have amply demonstrated that the genuine Christian has no close affinity to Solomon's Temple because He destroyed it and annulled the Levitical Priesthood that accompanied it, let us examine how important this temple is to the practice of the Masonic religion.
"Of all the objects which constitute the Masonic science of symbolism, the most important, the most cherished, by the Mason, and by far the most significant, is the Temple of Jerusalem. The spiritualizing of the Temple is the first, the most prominent, and the most pervading of all symbols of Freemasonry ... Take from Freemasonry its dependence on the Temple; leave out of its ritual all references to that sacred edifice, and to the legends and traditions connected with it, and the system itself would at once decay and die ..." ["Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry," by Albert Mackey, MD, 33º and Charles T. McClenachan, 33º, Revised Edition, by Edward L. Hawkins, 30º and William J. Hughan, 32º, Volume II, M-Z, published by The Masonic History Company, Chicago, New York, London, 1873, A.G. Mackey, 1927, by the Masonic History Company.]
Let us repeat the critical understanding that the noted 33º Masonic author, Albert Mackey, has just given us:
"Take from Freemasonry its dependence on the Temple; leave out of its ritual all references to that sacred edifice, and to the legends and traditions connected with it, and the system itself would at once decay and die ... "Therefore, the first understanding we want you to grasp is that Freemasonry is absolutely, completely, 100% devoted to the Solomon Temple, without which the entire structure and foundation of Freemasonry would die!
Thus does Masonry stand in stark contrast to genuine, Biblical Christianity. In other words, Freemasonry is rooted at its deepest foundation to the First Covenant of the Old Testament, while Biblical Christianity is rooted to the Second Covenant of Jesus Christ as delineated in the New Testament!
Mackey makes this fact quite clear also:
"Masonry has derived its temple symbolism, as it has almost all its symbolic ideas, from the Hebrew type ..." [Ibid]Since the Old Testament was written originally in the Hebrew, and the New Testament in the Greek, Mackey is clearly stating that Freemasonry is rooted in the Old Testament!
In the Masonic Bible, quoted above (the Temple Illustrated Edition), the author of the Foreword sheds some further light upon the importance of Solomon's Temple to Freemasonry:
"The traditions and romance of King Solomon's Temple are of great interest to everyone who reads the Bible. They are of transcendent importance to Masons. The Temple is the outstanding symbol in Masonry, and the legendary story of the building of the Temple is the fundamental basis of the Masonic rule and guide for conduct in life ... The cream of Masonic historical and philosophical writing has been drawn upon for his description of the Temple and its relation to Masonic ritual." [The Holy Bible: The Great Light In Masonry," King James Version, Temple Illustrated Edition, A.J. Holman Company, 1968, Forward entitled, "The Bible and King Solomon's Temple in Masonry," by John Wesley Kelchner]Let us review the important segment:
"The traditions and romance of King Solomon's Temple ... are of transcendent importance to Masons."The word "transcendent" is used by genuine Biblical Christianity to describe God Himself. Just as the dictionary explains, God is truly "transcendent," "to pass beyond the limit that humans can grasp;" "to exist above and independently of material experience or the universe."
In other words, Solomon's Temple is to the Freemason what God is to the genuine Christian! Thus, belief in Solomon's Temple transcends all of Freemasonry itself, existing above and independently of it. Masonry has placed its "transcendent" faith in a building that the True God Himself destroyed, not once, but twice!
SPIRITUALIZING SOLOMON'S TEMPLE
Starting at the end of the quote from the Temple Illustrated Edition Bible, above, we read:
"... In all the rich symbolism of Ancient Craft Masonry two symbols, or symbolic themes, predominate: one is the search for light, the other is the labor of building. The source of light is the Holy Bible, and the grand representation of the builder's art is King Solomon's Temple .... It was natural that imaginative stone Masons, long before the development of anything like our modern fraternity, should have felt a kinship with the great builders of all ages. It was natural also that they should have acknowledge a peculiar attraction for the most famous and glorious of all building enterprises, King Solomon's Temple and Citadel. Interest and attraction for the wonderful structure on Mt. Moriah have increased rather than diminished ... until today the Temple of Solomon is the spiritual home of every Mason." [Masonic Holy Bible, Temple Illustrated Edition, A.J. Holman Co., 1968, p. 11-14]A short while later, these authors explain:
"King Solomon's Temple was the perfect architectural expression of the religious faith of a people." [P. 25] "Perhaps Masonic interest also increased from a more or less incidental notice of the Temple to a final preoccupation with it as a symbol of spiritual man. [P. 29]Indeed, Masonic leadership has spiritualized the meaning of the Temple in the life of each and every Mason. Albert Mackey explains:
"To the Master Mason, the Temple of Solomon is truly the symbol of human life ... it becomes a fit symbol of human life occupied in the search after Divine Truth, which is nowhere to be found ... Such is the symbolism of the first Temple, that of Solomon, as familiar to the class of Master Masons." ["Encylopaedia of Freemasonry, Mackey, p. 774]However, while Solomon's Temple is the symbol of mortal human life to the Master Mason, a higher class of Masons ascribe a different interpretation to yet another Temple. Listen to Mackey explain:
"But there is a second and higher class of the Fraternity, the Masons of the Royal Arch, by whom this temple symbolism is still further developed. This second class, leaving their early symbolism and looking beyond this Temple of Solomon, find in Scriptural history another Temple, which years after the destruction of the first one, was erected upon its ruins; and they have selected the second Temple, the Temple of Zerubbabel, as their prominent symbol. And, as the first class of Masons find in their Temple the symbol of mortal life, limited and perishable, they, on the contrary, see in this second Temple, built upon the foundations of the first, a symbol of life eternal, where the lost truth shall be found, where new incense shall arise from a new altar, and whose perpetuity their great Master had promised when, in the very spirit of symbolism, he exclaimed, 'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up'."The Temple is so very important to the Mason that he took the final step to spiritualize its meaning. Master Masons look upon Solomon's Temple as their symbol of human life, while Royal Arch Masons consider the inferior Temple of Zerubbabel as their symbol of eternal life! The two symbols, taken together, form a spiritual circle, thus "perfecting" the Masonic symbolic system!
"And so to these two classes or Orders of Masons the symbolism of the Temple presents itself in a connected and continuous form. To the Master Mason, the Temple of Solomon is the symbol of this life; to the Royal Arch Mason, the Temple of Zerubbabel is the symbol of the future life. To the former, his Temple is the symbol of the search for truth; to the latter, his is the symbol of the discovery of truth; and thus the circle is completed and the system made perfect." [Ibid., Pages 774-775]
Now, you can understand how the Temple of Solomon became such a "transcendent" issue for the Mason!
LOGICAL CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSCENDENT BELIEF IN SOLOMON'S TEMPLE
Since Freemasonry reverences Solomon's Temple so very much, and since this Temple holds such a pre-eminent position in all of Freemasonry, from its foundation to its very roof, is it much of a stretch to understand that Freemasons might fervently desire to re-build Solomon's Temple on the only place on earth it can possibly be built -- the Temple Mount in Jerusalem?
Let us examine some of these writings to see the fervent desire of Freemasons to rebuild Solomon's Temple!
"The Freemasons have, at all events, seized with avidity the idea of representing in their symbolic language the interior and spiritual man by a material temple ... The great body of the Masonic Craft, looking only to this first Temple erected by the wisdom of King Solomon, make it the symbol of life; and as the great object of Masonry is the search after truth, they are directed to build up this temple as a fitting receptacle for truth ..." ["Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry", by Albert Mackey, MD, 33º and Charles T. McClenachan, 33º, Revised Edition, by Edward L. Hawkins, 30º and William J. Hughan, 32º, Volume II, M-Z, published by The Masonic History Company, Chicago, New York, London, 1873, A.G. Mackey, 1927, by the Masonic History Company, p. 774]The word "avidity" is defined as "eagerness, greed." Therefore, we can see that they are "directed to build up this temple" with eagerness and greediness! Mackey then goes on to talk about this new temple and some of its new fixtures.
"... new incense shall arise from a new altar, and whose perpetuity their great Master had promised when, in the very spirit of symbolism, he exclaimed, 'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.'" [Ibid.]"New incense" arising from a "new altar," in a Temple that Mackey has just associated with the "great Master Mason," Jesus Christ! In other words, Mackey has linked the new Temple with a Christ or Messianic figure. In another book, Masonic author, Edward Waite, is even more explicit. Listen:
"The Temple of Masonry is hence forward the house of Christ' ... [Edward Waite, p. 486-7, "A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: The Rites, Literature and History," Volume II, reprinted in 1970 by Weathervane Books., p. 314]The new Solomon Temple is henceforth to be called the "house of Christ." The naive might think Waite is referring to Jesus Christ, but Waite did not say that, did he? Do you know that the term "Christ" literally means the "office of the promised Messiah"?
Jesus fulfilled that office when He lived and ministered among men, and He was recognized as having fulfilled that Messianic office. Listen:
"And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." [Matthew 16:16]Notice Peter said "Thou are the Christ;" in other words, Peter recognized that Jesus was the Divine/human fulfillment of this office of Messiah.
"And the high priest answered and said unto him, 'I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell us whether Thou be the Christ, the Son of God.'" [Matthew 26:63]The high priest asked Jesus point blank if He was the fulfillment of that Messianic office.
"... the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether He were the Christ, or not." [Luke 3:15]Even the common Jew understood this distinction between the office ["the Christ"] and the man Who would fill it.
However, the Bible says that another Christ shall arise, and he shall be the Antichrist or one who comes in the guise of Christ, pretending to be the Messiah. Unfortunately, most of the people living at that time will be deceived into believing him to be Messiah, and will enthusiastically follow him [Revelation 13:3b-4].
Since Masonry is a counterfeit Christianity, it seems logical that Mackey and Waite might be talking about Antichrist, not Jesus Christ. Therefore, Waite really said:
"The Temple of Masonry is hence forward the house of [anti-]Christ."If plans are really afoot to rebuild Solomon's Temple, it will be for Antichrist, not Jesus Christ. And the Bible foretells just this kind of event, does it not? Listen:
"And many false prophets will rise up and deceive many into error ..." [Verse 11] "So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place ...." [Matthew 24:15; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]Jesus is quoting Daniel 9:27, 11:31, and 12:11, in which Antichrist will go into the Holy of Holies and commit the "Abomination that Causes Desolation." The Apostle Paul gives us more insight as to why Antichrist's actions are so offensive to God.
"... and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition), who opposes and exalts himself so proudly and insolently against and over all that is called God or that is worshipped [even to his actually] taking his seat in the Temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God." [2 Thessalonians 2:3b-4; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]Matthew 24:15 suddenly depicts Antichrist walking into the Holy of Holies to declare himself to be God, and proudly demanding that he be worshipped as God. Revelation 13:15 tells us that Antichrist will actually erect an image created in his likeness; this image will not only be able to speak, but will possess the supernatural power to kill anyone who does not worship it!
Now we understand. Antichrist will walk into a rebuilt Temple standing on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, declare himself to be God, demand to be worshipped as such, and erect a talking image made in his likeness!
Therefore, the re-built Temple of which Jesus foretells is directly linked to Antichrist! Why should we be surprised to learn from Waite that "The Temple of Masonry is hence forward the house of Christ"?
This planned new temple shall be the Temple of Antichrist, in complete fulfillment of Scripture.
BUILDING ANOTHER TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM
"... in the High Grades [of Masonry] we hear of a secret intention to build yet another temple at Jerusalem." [Author, Edward Waite, p. 486-7, "A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: The Rites, Literature and History," Volume II, reprinted in 1970 by Weathervane Books]
In the late 1800's, Masonic author and authority, Edward Waite, boldly stated that a secret plan does exist within Freemasonry to "build yet another temple at Jerusalem."
This poses a problem, does it not? In the mid-600's, the Muslim Dome of the Rock was built squarely on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Therefore, any "secret intention" of the top Masonic leadership to rebuild Solomon's Temple at Jerusalem must necessarily include a plan to remove the existing Dome of the Rock!
Thus we read of just such a plan being executed by New World Order author, Peter Lemesurier, writing in his book, "The Armageddon Script:"
"... it may be possible for the New David to ride into Jerusalem in all his resplendent majesty. Note the word 'ride' ... on a donkey as predicted in Zechariah 9:9 ... it would seem advisable for the new Messiah to repeat it, donkey and all ... The processional route will, of course, lie directly across the Kidron ravine, as close as possible to the Temple Mount ... he must be duly enthroned and anointed with oil (in token of Psalm 45:6-7) amid the rubble of the dome of the Rock ..." [P.. 233-35]Thus, you see clearly the plan to reduce the Dome of the Rock to rubble so Solomon's Temple can be rebuilt; further, Lemesurier ties this destruction of the Dome of the Rock to the appearance of the "New David," the New Age Christ -- the Masonic Christ actually, whom the Bible calls Antichrist.
Adding to the declaration of the fervency of this "secret intention to build yet another temple at Jerusalem," we read:
"Perhaps Masonic interest also increased from a more or less incidental notice of the Temple to a final preoccupation with it as a symbol of spiritual man." [Masonic Holy Bible, Temple Illustrated Edition, 1968, P. 29]To Reiterate:
Masons are "preoccupied" with King Solomon's Temple.Now that we have been told that Solomon did not follow God's original plan in building his Temple, we realize the importance Masons lay upon a "Holy One" that shall come to "remember His people, Israel," and shall commemorate that remembrance by finally building a house that He had originally intended Solomon to build!
They are so "preoccupied" that they have gone to great lengths to justify building a new Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Listen:"Concerning the building of this temple, the Zohar teaches that Solomon's Temple was not built according to the original plans ... In a word, the Lord did not build the House, and they laboured in vain that built it ... There is a time, however, to come, when the Holy One shall remember His people, Israel, and the Lord shall build the House." [Author, Edward Waite, p. 486-7, "A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: The Rites, Literature and History," Volume II, reprinted in 1970 by Weathervane Books]To Reiterate:
"Zohar teaches that Solomon's Temple was not built according to the original plans ... In a word, the Lord did not build the House, and they laboured in vain that built it ... There is a time, however, to come when the Holy One shall remember His people, Israel, and the Lord shall build the House."
In other words, King Solomon messed up the royal plans for the Temple! He did not follow God's original plan, so God allowed Solomon's magnificent Temple to be destroyed! The Coming Christ will rebuild it, but shall build it according to the original Divine Plan.
Now, can you appreciate the ruling handed down a few years ago by the Orthodox Jewish leadership that "only Messiah can build the Temple"? When the Masonic Christ shall come, then shall be fulfilled Waite's quote, "the Lord shall build the House!"
"AWAITING THE MAN"
Shockingly, the modern Masonic Bible, quoted above, verifies the fact that the Solomon Temple will have to await the appearance of a very special man. Listen:
"It is known to every reader of the Bible and student of Solomon's days, that an amazingly detailed description of the Temple and its associated structures has been carried down from the mists of antiquity by the Scriptures. Lineal measurements, materials employed, and ornamental detail are so graphically presented that restoration of the Temple, at any time within a score of centuries past, awaited only the coming of a man with the vision to recognize its historic value, and the imagination to undertake the task." [Foreword, "The Bible and King Solomon's Temple in Masonry," by John Wesley Kelchner, 1968, A. J. Holman Company]To Reiterate the Key Point:
"... restoration of the Temple ... awaited only the coming of a man with the vision ..."TODAY'S NEWS EVENTS ARE BEING DRIVEN BY THIS PLAN
Once you understand that Middle Eastern events are being driven by this fervent Masonic desire to rebuild Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, then you will be able to make sense of what is occurring over there today.
To finally realize this dream, control of Jerusalem, generally, and of the Temple Mount, especially, must pass from Israeli control; but it must not pass to Arab control. Rather, control of Jerusalem must pass to the Illuminized International Community.
God is using this Masonic "preoccupation" with Jerusalem to pull all the nations of the world together against Jerusalem. Literally, out of the smoke, devastation and terror of the planned World War III, The Christ (Antichrist) shall come striding, just as Peter Lemesurier indicated in his book, "The Armageddon Script."
[Note carefully, that Illuminized Freemasonry derives its entire Satanic religion from the Hebrew type; thus, the Arab is considered an enemy, to be vanquished. All Arabs need to understand they are targeted for extinction, as their strongly monotheistic religion will never allow them to completely accept the claims of The Christ (Antichrist). We have detailed the plan by which this eradication shall occur, in stages -- NEWS1631, entitled, "Blood In The Streets."]
The Christ (Antichrist) shall enact the scenario Lemesurier outlined, where he shall be anointed Messiah, standing "amidst the rubble of the Dome of the Rock."
Illuminized Western Freemasonry -- driven by the United Kingdom, the United States, and Israel -- are carefully maneuvering events in the Middle East to so precipitate the war that will not only allow their Christ (Antichrist) to arise [Tim Cohen, "Antichrist and A Cup of Tea"], but will destroy the Dome of the Rock by either a deliberately induced earthquake or war [Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script"].
As Cohen so strongly states, the key leadership in this script is in London, at the House of Windsor. They make the policy; and officials of the United Kingdom, the United States, and Israel implement it.
We have noted lately the true "Axis of Evil" driving world events -- England, United States, and Israel. While some consider Spain's King Juan Carlos to be a prime candidate for Antichrist, I have not read of a stronger case for either Prince Charles or William than Cohen presents in his "Antichrist and a Cup of Tea."
We have been able to trace the beginning of this entire modern flow of history all the way back to British Illuminist Francis Bacon and the equally Illuminist Queen Elizabeth I. But, that is the grist for another story to be told at another time!
However, the point is that, as the beginning of the Illuminized plan for the New World Order can be traced back to the 1590s to British leadership, it makes sense that Antichrist shall ultimately come from Great Britain. Thus, we can understand the many plans the Illuminati has laid to make rebuilding Solomon's Temple a reality. Consider our previous articles which have talked at length about International Control of Jerusalem:
NEWS1052 -- Verbatim Transcript of the Seminar at the House of Theosophy, August 18, 1991. Five Steps of New Jerusalem Covenant Plan to Produce Antichrist Outlined and Explained
NEWS1395 -- First of Five Steps Occurred, Just As Outlined In House of Theosophy Seminar
NEWS1413 -- Control Over Jerusalem, Arafat Not Agreeing

NEWS1573 -- Is Jerusalem About To Be Declared International City?
NEWS1587 -- Pope John Paul II Signs Covenant With Arafat Calling For Internationalization of Jerusalem!
NEWS1635 -- U.N. Has Officially Controlled Jerusalem Since 1999!
As you can see, Cutting Edge has devoted much time and effort on this issue, because it literally is the issue around which the appearance of Antichrist shall revolve. Then, the rebuilding of Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount can commence. But, this time, "The Lord" shall build the House. This is the Temple of Antichrist, and it draws nearer every day.
