These Are the Beginning of Birth Pains: Twelve Reasons Why the Great Tribulation Has Not Begun Yet

By Maria Merola אריאל 

© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, April 21st 2023 

Today is April 21st 2023, and I am writing to the body of Messiah at large, because I am seeing an alarming trend, in which many are proclaiming that the prophesied “Great Tribulation” that our Messiah foretold about in Matthew 24:15-21, has already begun.

This theory purports that on December 14th, 2020, (when President Trump rolled out the poisonous needles), that this was the beginning of the Great Tribulation. This theory goes on to explain that the conclusion of the tribulation of 1,260 days is scheduled to end on April 8th 2024, when the next solar eclipse will be seen across the United States.

Where is this theory coming from? The people who are purporting this, are citing the two solar eclipses from 2017 and 2024 as their so-called “proof,” that the seven-year tribulation already began in August of 2017, and that it’s conclusion will be in April 2024.

Those who believe in a “seven-year tribulation,” believe that the tribulation began at the solar eclipse of 2017, while those who adhere to a 3.5-year tribulation (as scripture describes), claim that the 1,260 days began on December 14th 2020, and will conclude on April 8th 2024 with the second coming of Messiah. I can remember when this solar eclipse in August 2017 was followed by a rare constellation on September 23rd 2017, and many believers were claiming that the “Pre-Tribulation Rapture,” would take place on this date. 

To learn more, see my blog explaining the meaning of this constellation:

Because of what our Messiah already told us in Matthew 24:15-21, it was easy to see that the “rapture,” would not occur on September 23rd 2017! 

Those who do not properly apply the words of our Messiah as the main harbinger of the Great Tribulation, are constantly chasing after every new “sign and wonder,” as they claim that the “Rapture or second coming is imminent.” The word “imminent,” in the dictionary means something that is “About to happen,” or something that could occur without warning, or without a harbinger.

But here is the problem with this theory. There are a few major biblical harbingers that have yet to be seen, before we can announce that the “Great Tribulation” has begun. What is a harbinger? The dictionary defines a harbinger as follows: “A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another.

I am going to list twelve biblical harbingers or reasons why “The Great Tribulation,” has not yet arrived, but it will be here very soon.

#1.) The beginning of sorrows is marked by wars and rumors of wars, diseases, food shortages, famine/hunger, and earthquakes.

According to the words of our Messiah, (Matthew 24:5-8), the beginning of birth pains/sorrows is marked by the following signs: Wars and rumors of wars, famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” This means that since the Covid-19 Pandemic, and the Russian-Ukraine War, we can determine that we are currently in what is called “The beginning of birth pains.” 

According to our own Messiah’s words, the “Great Tribulation” cannot and will not begin until we see the following signs: 

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 

*Note: The public world-wide evangelistic outreach of the Corporate Two Witnesses has not begun yet, because they will do even “GREATER WORKS” than Yahuwshuwa did (John 14:12). At the end of their ministry of 1,260 days, they are killed by the beast, and that is when they are raised back to life, and taken up to heaven for at the Post-Tribulation Harpazo (Rapturo). 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:

3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?  

4  And Yahuwshuwa answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  

5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many.  

*Note: I believe the above passage applies in two ways. It is addressing those who teach that Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) is the Messiah, and yet they still deceive the elect in other ways. It can also apply to those who would call themselves “The Messiah, or “The Christ.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:6  And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  

*Note: We began hearing of wars and rumors of wars in February 2022 with the Russia-Ukraine War. This is the first harbinger, that we are now in what our Messiah called “The beginning of sorrows.” The Greek word for “sorrows,” is “odin,” which literally means “birth pains.” 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.  

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pains).  

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my names sake. 

The next sign that we are in the beginning of sorrows/birth pains, is that we began seeing global pestilences (diseases) in March of 2020 with Covid-19. You will notice, that on a global scale, believers in Messiah have not been delivered up to be afflicted yet. Yes, we have some Christians in the Islamic World being persecuted, and martyred.

However, our Messiah said that the persecution would come from “all nations,” and that we would be hated because of his name. I do not believe this means those who merely profess the name of “Jesus,” because even the Pope, and many Freemasonic leaders profess the name of “Jesus,” but they will be the ones who will persecute those of us who call upon his true name. Even those who still call him “Jesus,” must have more than a mere verbal confession. Those who will be persecuted and imprisoned, are those who obey the commandments, and refuse to obey the beast. 

#2.) The daily sacrifices in the Jerusalem Temple must be taken away,” before the Abomination of Desolation is set up in the holy place.

There are many people within the body of Messiah, who simply don’t get it, when it comes to the Temple of Elohiym. Because they misunderstand the context of the book of Hebrews, they make uneducated claims, and call the Tribulation Temple, “The Temple of Satan!” However no place in Scripture is the Temple of Elohiym, ever referred to as the Temple of Satan.

To learn more about why YaHuWaH will allow the brick and mortar Temple to be built before the Great Tribulation begins. 

See my other two blogs: 

Now, lets examine these prophecies of Daniel, as quoted by our Messiah.

Daniel 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down

The first thing I want to point out is that the Hebrew word for sanctuary is #4720, which is miqdash, which literally means a palace.

The word “sacrifice” in the above passage, was added by the English translators, and therefore, some people think they have found proof that this verse is not speaking about animal sacrifices in the temple.

However, the word “daily” in the Hebrew Concordance, is #H8548 “tamiyd” which quite literally means “the regular daily sacrifice.” 

A few well-known Torah teachers claim that the phrase “taken away” only means “to exalt, to lift up, to raise up.” By isolating the definition of “taken away,” to agree with their confirmation bias, they falsely claim that the act of performing the daily sacrifices in the Temple is a sin against YaHuWaH. 

However, we are going to test this theory. The term “taken away” is defined in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance as follows: 

#H7311 ruwm room a primitive root; to be high actively, to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively):--bring up, exalt (self), extolgive, go uphaughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high(-er, one), hold up, levy, lift(-er) up, (be) lofty, aloud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote(-ion), proud, set up, tall(-er), take awaybreed worms

The term “cast down” is defined in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance as follows: 

#H7993 shalak shaw-lak a primitive root; to throw outdown or away (literally or figuratively):--adventure, cast away, down, forth, off, out), hurl, pluck, throw. 

As you can see, these false teachers are not being honest with the text. They use only the synonyms within the above definitions that confirms their bias to build their case. But they ignore the other definitions.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate

As you can see from the above verse, the False Messiah will pollute what? A human body? No, it says “The sanctuary of strength,” which is something made from stone or a rock. The Hebrew phrase for “sanctuary of strength,” is “miqdash maowz,” which means “A stone palace!”

It is also a fortified place, like a fortor fortress. This means that it has high stone walls surrounding it!

#4581 ma`owz maw-oze' (also mauwz {maw-ooz'}); or mahoz {maw-oze'} (also ma,uz {maw-ooz'}; from 5810; a fortified place; figuratively, a defense:--force, fortress, rock, strengthen, stronghold

The phrase “take away,” is as follows:

#H5493 cuwr soor or suwr (Hosea 9:12) {soor}; a primitive root; to turn off (literal or figurative):--be(-head), bring, call back, decline, depart, eschew, get (you), go (aside), grievous, lay away (by), leave undone, be past, pluck awayput away, down), rebel, remove (to and fro), revolt, be sour, take (away, off), turn (aside, away, in), withdraw, be without. 

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 

#3.) The Great Tribulation is marked by the appearance of the Abomination of Desolation, aka the Image of the Beast seen by all the people of the world “in the holy place.” 

The first time that the Abomination of Desolation was seen in the Jerusalem Temple, was in 167 B.C. when Antiochus Epiphanes IV
erected an image of Zeus on December 25th in the Jerusalem Temple, and he forced the Yahuwdiym (Jews) to worship the image, under penalty of brutal torture and death.

Shaul (Paul) tells us that these historic events from the past, are given to as examples, so that we know what to look for at the end of the world:

1st Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

1st Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Matthew 24:15-21 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place... For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 

What exactly is the holy place? In Matthew 24:15, the phrase “holy place” is two word“hagios topos,” which literally means “A holy room, a holy space, a holy spot, a holy rock!” 

*Note: In other words, it is something made from STONE! This also agrees with Daniel 11:31, when he calls it “The Sanctuary of Strength,” which in Hebrew means “A STONE TEMPLE!” 

When Shaul (Paul) called the human body “The Temple,” (1st Corinthians 6:19-20) he used a different word in the Greek. He used the phrase “hagios soma” (holy body) not “hagios topos” (holy rock)! 

Therefore, the Great Tribulation cannot begin until we SEE the Abomination of Desolation in the HOLY TEMPLE MADE FROM STONE! 

Because the Apostle Shaul (Paul) likened the human body to the Temple of Elohiym, many people are now proclaiming that there will not be a brick and mortar Temple in Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation:

1st Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know you not that your body is the Temple of the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) which is in you, which you have of Elohiym, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify Elohiym in your body, and in your spirit, which are Elohiym’s.

The Greek word for body” in the above passage, is as follows:

#4983. soma so'-mah from 4982; the body (as a sound whole), used in a very wide application, literally or figuratively:--bodily, body, slave.

Therefore, if Daniel the prophet, and our Messiah meant for us to know that the Abomination of Desolation would be “SEEN” in the holy body, (hagios soma), Matthew 24:15 would say the following:

Matthew 24:15-21 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the hagios soma (holy body)... For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 

But the fact that it says that the AOD would be seen in the hagios topos, is enough proof that its a holy location, a holy room, or a holy rock, which is a foundation stone for buildings. 

The first time that the holy place is mentioned, is in the book of Exodus:

Shemoth (Exodus) 26:33 And you shall hang up the vail under the taches, that you may bring in there within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

In the above passage, the holy place, and the most holy, are two sections of the Tabernacle of Moses. The Hebrew definition for these two sections are as follows:

#6944 qodesh ko'-desh from 6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstract, sanctity:--consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, holy, saint, sanctuary.

The word “qodesh” can apply to a person, place or thing. However, in the context of Matthew 24:15-21, we know that our Messiah was specifically describing “The holy place” within the brick and mortar Temple. How do we know? Because Yahuwshuwa quoted Daniel the prophet who prophesied that the Abomination of Desolation would be “SEEN,” in the holy place, before the great tribulation. He did not say that it would be seen inside of “The holy body.”

#4.) The beast will be healed from a deadly wound, thus, causing the entire world to worship him and his image.

This has obviously not taken place yet in our current end-times. I have written extensively about the office of the Papacy suffering a deadly wound to it’s authority (head) in 1798 under Napoleon Bonaparte, but this deadly wound was healed in 1929 under Mussolini. 

To learn more, see my other blog: Who is the Beast of Revelation 13?

The truth is, that the Holy Roman Empire, (under Nazi Germany, Hitler & Pope Pious) is the beast of Revelation 13:1. This beast already suffered a deadly wound to it’s head or authority after WWII. After that, America became a World Super Power in 1945 under the Yalta Agreement. Since 1945, America has been the end-time beast, the 8th king of Revelation 17.

However, prophecy does not stand still in one era of time. Because YaHuWaH is eternal, he is the one “Who is, and who was, and who is to come. ” Therefore, it stands to reason that his prophecies are on-going, for the past, the present, and the future. If prophecy only applied to past generations, current generations would miss out on those lessons. This is why it is so important to learn from the past. A wise saying goes something like this “Those who refuse to learn from the past, are destined to repeat it.”

Beginning in the 7th chapter of Daniel, we are shown that a “beast,” is an empire or a kingdom. The secondary definition is the leader of that empirical beast, is also called “the beast.” There have been a total of seven major kingdoms or beasts in history. The eighth king or beast will be wounded to death, but then it will be resurrected. I believe this 8th king or beast, is the United States of America, which is now suffering a deadly wound to it’s social, economic, and political status as a World Super Power. See Revelation 13:3, 12 & 14. 

America is the eighth kingdom (king) who “Who was a super power, and is no longer a super power, but once again, will become a super power” (Revelation 17:10-12). 

I personally believe that Donald Trump will join forces with Russia, and will broker a deal between Ukraine & Russia. All the other nations of the earth, will then follow suit, as did the Middle Eastern countries with the Abraham Accords in 2020. This will bring America back to her status as a World Super Power. However, like Hitler, once he accomplishes this, he will be greedy for Global Power, and he will conquer the entire world for his own glory. America as the empirical beast, and their leader will rule for 42 months, at the end of which, all the nations of the earth, who rule for one hour with the beast (Revelation 17:12), will “Hate the whore, and shall burn her with fire.”

Revelation 17:16 And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Who is this harlot or the whore? 

For a more in-depth study, I recommend reading this blog: Who is Mystery Babylon?

Ezekiel 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother: 

*Note: Isaiah 66:7-13 & Galatians 4:26 tells us that Jerusalem is the mother of us all. Therefore, the two women in the above passage are the Two Houses of Yisrael, who later assimilated into the nations, and they joined Christianity and Judaism.

Ezekiel 23:23 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity. 

Ezekiel 23:24 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Master was crucified. 

In 1993, the Old City of Jerusalem was handed over to the Vatican, and Pope John Paul II, by Shimon Peres under the Oslo Accords. 

To learn more about this, see my other blog: The Abomination of Desolation Getting Closer!

This means that all the world religions shall come together in Jerusalem, and there will be a show-down there just before the second coming of Messiah. Jerusalem is fast becoming the whore or harlot, (whom the nations will hate), and shall burn her with fire. However, our Messiah will return just in time to save the remnant, those inhabitants of Jerusalem, who will be waiting for him at the Mount of Olives, as per Zechariah 12:10.  

However, before this happens, Yah will separate the sheep from the goats, and one third of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be saved, while the other two-thirds shall perish. The prophets Zechariah & Ezekiel told us what would take place in Jerusalem, just before the second coming of Messiah:

Ezekiel 5:2 You shall burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and you shall take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part you shall scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them. 

Ezekiel 5:12 A third part of you shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of you: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about you; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, says YHWH, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

The Remnant in Jerusalem Shall Receive the Mark of YaHuWaH 

Ezekiel 9:

1 He cried also in my ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. 

2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lies toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar. 

*Note: Here is proof that there will be a brick and mortar Temple in Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation. There cannot be a brazen altar without a Temple.

Ezekiel 9:

3 And the glory of the Elohiym of Yisrael was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writers inkhorn by his side; 

*Note: Here is more proof that there will be a brick and mortar Temple in Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation, as the Hebrew word for house is bayith, which means a stone palace or a Temple.

Ezekiel 9:

4 And YHWH said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Yerushalaiym (Jerusalem), and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof

5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go you after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have you pity: 

6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. 

*Note: The ancient men were standing in front of the House of Elohiym, which is the Temple. This is further proof that the Temple is not limited to the human body.

Ezekiel 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go you forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. 

*Note: You will notice that Yah commands the messenger to defile the house, which is the Temple, by filling the courts with the slain people. This is a clear distinction between the brick and mortar Temple, and the dead bodies.

Ezekiel 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah YHWH Elohiym! Will you destroy all the remnant of Yisra’el in your pouring out of your fury upon Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)? 

Ezekiel 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Yisra’el and Yahuwdah (Judah) is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, YHWH has forsaken the earth, and YHWH sees not. 

The pouring out of wrath and fury on the Jerusalem Temple in the end of days, parallels this event in Revelation 15:

Revelation 15:6  And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.  

Revelation 15:7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of Elohiym, who lives for ever and ever.  

Revelation 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of Elohiym, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the Temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. 

Once again, this is further proof that there will be a brick and mortar Temple in Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation.

#5.) The beast will speak blasphemies against the Most High for 42 months, before the entire world.

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the qodeshiym (saints) of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

We have already begun to see this with Donald Trump speaking blasphemous things against our Creator since he became POTUS in 2016. However, this will also apply to the entire empire of the beast as well. This means that all the people who belong to the beast will speak blasphemous things against our Creator during the Great Tribulation of 42 months. This will include denying our Creator, and worshiping the beast, and his image, as well as taking his mark.

See my other blogs where I show evidence of President Trump speaking great things and blasphemies against the Most High:

#6.) The entire world will be restricted from buying and selling unless they bear the Mark of the Beast, and worship his image.

On March 21st 2020, Yah spoke to me and told me to look up the meaning of the word “corona” and “virus.” He also said to read Revelation 6:2. As I read the words, I was reading it with new eyes of understanding. The word “bow” jumped out at me, and I decided to do an etymology search on this word. Thats when Yah showed me that the rider on the white horse is President Trump! It wasnt until two years later that Trump began selling NFT Cards online, and one of them features him riding on a white horse!

I realized in that moment, that President Trump was going to use America tax dollars to develop a poisonous DNA-altering substance that would be used as a depopulation weapon against humanity. It was on that day that I realized this was not going to be an ordinary inoculation. Since that time, the Spirit of YaHuWaH began showing me that this was a fulfillment of the the “Iron and the clayprophecy from Daniel 2:41-43. After further research, I understood that this injection is indeed, “The Mark of the Beast,but there will also be more components added later, such as an RFID Chip that will serve as a Vaccine Passport, and a monetary system for a cashless society. 

Even though the Mark of the Beast has already begun since December 14th 2020, it has not yet reached the point where there are global restrictions on buying and selling yet. 

Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

#7.) The number of days between December 14th 2020 (when President Trump rolled out the needles), until April 8th 2024 (for the next solar eclipse) only adds up to 1211 days, not 1,260 days, nor 1,290. 

Those who are citing the solar eclipses from 2017 & 2024 as the only harbinger that we are in the Great Tribulation, are claiming that it began on December 14th, 2020, and will end on April 8th 2024. The only problem is, it only adds up to 1,211 days, not 1,290 days.

By adding the difference of 79 days to April 8th 2024, we come June 25th 2024, which is a random date that bears no significance to biblical prophecy. The Feast of Weeks (Pentecost/Shabuoth) lands on May 19th, 2024. By adding the difference of 49 days to April 8th 2024, it brings us to the date of May 26th 2021, which is an entire week after the Feast of Weeks.

The catching away of the bride of Messiah, will take place on the Feast of Trumpets, and the second coming of Messiah to earth will be ten days later on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). See Revelation 2:9, where Smyrna is told that they must suffer tribulation ten days, after Philadelphia is given “An open door that no man can shut” (Revelation 3:7-10). 

To learn more about the timing of the bride's catching away, these other blogs:

#8.) No prophecy is of private interpretation.

In Matthew 24:15-21, our Messiah told us the precise moment when the final 3.5 years, or 1,260 days, or 42 months would commence, before his second coming to earth. Without a definitive moment in time that we can isolate, nobody will be able to decipher when these last 3.5 years will begin. However, those who are peddling this theory seem to be presenting a “private interpretation” of prophecy. 

2nd Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

Those who are calculating the Great Tribulation, based on the solar eclipses that will only be visible to those who live in the United States, are not taking into account the rest of the population of the world, who will also experience the Great Tribulation. This is the typical self-centered American attitude.

#9.) The Two Witnesses must begin their ministry in Jerusalem, where our Master was crucified, and where their dead bodies will be seen in the streets; and where their resurrection to heaven will be witnessed by the whole world.

I have written many other blogs about this subject, where I explain in fine detail who the Two Witnesses are. They will have a global presence on a corporate scale, but I also believe there may also be two individuals who will “represent” these two corporate groups in Jerusalem. See my other blogs, Who Are the Two Witnesses?

Since we have not seen a presence of the Corporate Two Witnesses preaching in Jerusalem yet (where our Master was crucified), we cannot be in the Great Tribulation yet.

#10.) The drying up of the Euphrates River is marked by the 6th angel pouring out the vial of wrath upon the earth.

The fact that the Euphrates River has begun drying up has been going on for several decades. However, it has not completely dried up just yet. Revelation 16:12 however tells us that it will take place at the sixth angel pouring out his vial of wrath upon the earth. And since that has not taken place yet, we know that the second coming of Messiah will not be taking place next year in 2024.

Revelation 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 

From this website that I found online, it says that the Euphrates River is not completely dried up yet, but a government report expects that it will be by 2040. However, what the government report fails to take into consideration, is that there will be a sudden drying up of the Euphrates at the sixth vial or bowl of wrath.

“It is becoming increasingly apparent that the Tigris–Euphrates river system is drying out. A government report in 2021 warned that the rivers could run dry by 2040 due to declining water levels and droughts driven by climate change.

#11.) The dual nature of Messianic Prophecy always produces a gap in history.

It is evident from Scripture, that the same scenario that took place in 70 A.D. with the Romans laying siege to Jerusalem, will be repeated again in the end of days. Our Messiah began his Olivet Discourse with the immediate prophetic fulfillment that was going to take place forty years later with General Titus and the Roman Armies.

But he continued to give the same prophetic harbingers, for the end of days, at his second coming. Thus, there are exact parallels to the Roman Siege in 70 A.D, and the nations of the earth coming against Jerusalem at the final 120th Jubilee Year. I postulate, based on the data that I have available, that the 120th Jubilee Year will be 2027-2028. A.D.

To illustrate this, I will list a few examples of there being a prophetic gap in history. This gap was created by our Messiahs reading of Isaiah 61:2. He read only half of the verse, in a Jubilee Year on Yom Kippur. But he reserved the latter half of the verse, for his return on another Yom Kippur in a future Jubilee Year.

*Examples of Historic Gaps in Biblical Prophecy: 

1.) The 2000-year gap of Joel confirmed by Keefa (Peter) on the day of Pentecost (Shabuowth). 

2.) The early and latter rain of the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit). 

3.) The gap between the Feasts of Weeks (Shabuoth/Pentecost) & and the Feast of Trumpets. 

4.) The preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom begins and ends with what is called “The fullness of the Gentiles,” which lasts for exactly 2,000 years.

5.) The Priests and the Ark preceded the people with a gap into the Promised Land. 

Often-times in prophecy, there is the immediate natural fulfillment, and later there is thye parallel fulfillment concerning the spiritual.

The dual nature of Messianic prophecy has caused the nation of Yisra’el to be blinded by the first appearance of Messiah who came as a prophetic type of Joseph, the “suffering servant.” 

However, at his second appearance to earth, he will come as a type of King David, the “conquering, reigning king.” 

Few have seemingly pondered the question, “Why did the Prophet Joel prophesy in four verses the beginning and end of the times of the Gentiles of which many call ‘The Church age?’” 

Upon announcing the fulfillment of the 1st two verses of Joel’s prophecy on Pentecost (Shabuoth), Keefa (Peter) begins the first two verses as an explanation for the outpouring of the Spirit of Elohiym.

The next two verses concluded with atmospheric judgments found in Revelation 6:12-17. 

When Yahuwshuwa fulfilled the Feast of Shabuoth (Pentecost) by baptizing his disciples in fire, it marked the beginning of the “last days.” 

At the end of this 2,000 year gap, (at the last trump), and immediately after the atmospheric signs mentioned in Acts 2:18-19, Yahuwshuwa will gathers his elect (Matthew 24:28-31). 

This 2,000-year gap between the prophetic fulfillment of “The Feast of Weeks” (Pentecost) & “The Feast of Trumpets” is when Messiah gathers his elect, and it marks the beginning of the end of this last “age” prior to the second coming of Messiah. 

On the Feast of Trumpets (when the elect are gathered), this will mark the end of Daniel’s 70th Week (Daniel 9:24-27). Messiah was cut off after 486.5 years out of the 490 years of Daniel’s 70-Week prophecy. The prophecy begins with King Cyrus’s initial decree in 457 B.C. If you subtract 457 from 490, (for the length of the prophecy) and you don’t count the year “zero,” you end up at 27 A.D. when Messiah began his 3.5-year ministry at his baptism. This was in a Jubilee Year, on Yom Kippur. Therefore his second coming will be identical to his first coming. For a deeper understanding, I recommend these two blogs:

This means that there will be a Temple standing in Jerusalem, just as there was at his first coming. To learn more about how the first and second coming of Messiah are like identical book-ends, please see my other blog: 

When will the beast and his army gather to make war against Messiah and his army? According to Revelation 19, the final war will not begin until our Messiah returns with his bride.

Revelation 19:

17  And I saw a malak (angel) standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great Elohiym; 

18  That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.  

19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  

The Prophetic Meaning of the American Eclipses

On August 21st 2017, we witnessed a total solar eclipse in America.

On June 10th 2021, we witnessed an annular solar eclipse. 

On October 14th 2023, we will witness another annular solar eclipse.

On April 8th 2024, we will witness another total solar eclipse. 

An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Suns center, leaving the Suns visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon. 

A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.

Does Scripture speak of lunar and solar eclipses? 

The Hebrew word for “eclipse” is as follows: 

#3650 kimriyr kim-reer' redupl. from 3648; obscuration (as if from shrinkage of light, i.e. an eclipse (only in plural):--blackness. 

The root word means “To intertwine!” 

#3648 kamar kaw-mar' a primitive root; properly, to intertwine or contract, i.e. (by implication) to shrivel (as with heat); figuratively, to be deeply affected with passion (love or pity):--be black, be kindled, yearn. 

The root word “kamar,” could mean that the Two Sticks of Ezekiel 37:16-17 are “intertwining,” and thus becoming one stick in the hand of YaHuWaH! 

The Two Houses of Yisra’el, the Two Sticks, aka the Two Witnesses, are soon going to become the resurrected as “One New Man!”

But before they can be resurrected, they must complete their ministry that will last for 1,260 days, or 42 months (Revelation 11:2-3).

#12.) The first coming and second coming of Messiah both take place in a Jubilee Year, creating a 2,000-year gap, equaling 40 Jubilees. 

Jonathan Cahn (who is a Political Zionist) falsely claims that 2017 was a Jubilee Year, because of what Donald Trump accomplished in 2017 when he established Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. However, because of Jonathan Cahn’s false Jubilee timeline, he refers to Trump as “The Messiah Ben Joseph!” You can hear say these blasphemous things at this YouTube Video:

If what Jonathan Cahn says it true, we will have to wait for the year 2067 for the next Jubilee Year, and for the second coming of the real Messiah, Yahuwshuwa! Jonathan Cahn’s Jubilee count is false, and I explain in this blog, that the true Messiah, Yahuwshuwa began his ministry in the Jubilee Year of 27-28 A.D. 

This means that we only need to count 2,000 years (which is 40 Jubilees), and that takes us to 2027-2028 A.D. for a possible return of Yahuwshuwa as the Messiah. 

Many theologians have been confused for centuries over the identity of the “HE” in Daniel 9:27, supposing that it's a prophecy about the “Antichrist.” However, back in 2002 (following the events of 9/11), YaHuWaH taught me a profound truth, that would revolutionize the way I view Scripture, forever. 

As I studied all of Daniel 9:24-27 in Hebrew, I realized that the word “HE” is not found in Daniel 9:27, as it was added by the English translators! 

Nevertheless, Daniel 9:26-27 makes it clear, that it was our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa who “CONFIRMS” THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT, NOT DONALD TRUMP! 

*Note: Donald Trump’s Abraham Accords is a counterfeit to the Peace that the real Messiah, Yahuwshuwa will bring at his return.

The Abraham Accords is a fulfillment of Isaiah 28:15-18 called “A COVENANT WITH DEATH.” 

Our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa was “CUT OFF IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK” (the final seven years of the 490-year prophecy). 

In other words, after his ministry of 3.5 years (1,260 days), he was CUT OFF IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK, WITHIN THE WEEK, WITHIN THE WEEK: 

1.) Messiah died IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN-DAY WEEK of Passover (what we would today call Wednesday), on the fourth day of the week. 

2.) Messiah died IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN-YEAR Sabbatical (Shmitta), which was after his ministry of 3.5 years. Luke 4:25 tells us that Messiah’s ministry would last for 3.5 years, just like the prophet Elijah. 

3.) Messiah died IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN THOUSAND YEARS from creation, because he began his ministry in the year 4,000 (in the FOURTH MILLENNIUM). 

Malachi 4:2 calls him “The Sun of Righteousness,” because the sun was manifested on the earth on the FOURTH DAY OF THE CREATION WEEK. 

In 2nd Peter 3:8, we are told that “One day is with YaHuWaH as a thousand years.” 

Therefore, the SEVENTH DAY of the week (when Messiah resurrected) serves as a microcosm to the macrocosm of the final SEVENTH MILLENNIUM at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!

Throughout the Scriptures, we see many patterns for THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT (symbolized by the number SEVEN) being DIVIDED IN HALF: 

1.) At the SEVEN-DAY creation week, YaHuWaH DIVIDED TWO HALVES of ONE 24-HOUR DAY, into darkness and light (a prophetic picture of the sheep and the goats). 

*Note: Those who have already come into the light are part of the 12 Tribes, who are walking in the light. Those who are still in darkness will be given a chance to come into the light before Messiah lands his feet on the Mount of Olives, and they too will be added to the 12 Tribes. 

Thus, the 12 who are in the light, and the 12 who are not yet in the light equals 24, as in 24-hours, just like the 24 elders in heaven, who represent 12 Tribes from the Mosaic Covenant, and 12 Apostles from Messiah's New Covenant. 

 2.) Abraham’s animal pieces were DIVIDED IN HALF, and YaHuWaH walked BETWEEN (IN THE MIDST OF) those pieces, to signify that he was going to STAND IN THE GAP & REPAIR THE BREACH, between the TWO DIVIDED KINGDOMS. 

3.) Jacob’s sons by his TWO WIVES & TWO CONCUBINES, were DIVIDED over Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors, when they killed the goat, and covered it with blood (symbolic of Messiah’s future sacrifice to restore the DIVIDED house of Yisra’el). 

4.) The Red Sea was DIVIDED IN HALF to destroy the enemies of Yisra’el. 

5.) The SPLIT/DIVIDED ROCK of Horeb was DIVIDED IN HALF, to provide life-giving water for Yisra’el. 

6.) Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is DIVIDED IN HALF, by Messiah dying “IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK” (Daniel 9:26-27). 

7.) The TWO SISTER HARLOTS were judged by King Solomon, when he threatened to DIVIDE THE MALE HEIR (the baby boy) in HALF with a sword. 

8.) King Solomon’s Kingdom was DIVIDED into TWO KINGDOMS, because of his idolatry with his many wives (1st Kings 12). 

9.) Messiah died BETWEEN TWO THIEVES as a symbol of the TWO DIVIDED HOUSES of Yisra’el (Matthew 12:25; Matthew 27:38; Mark 15:27). 

10.) Messiah died BETWEEN TWO EVENINGS, to unite the TWO DIVIDED KINGDOMS (Exodus 12:6; Matthew 12:25). 

11.) Messiah died on a CROSS, made from TWO TREES (a stauros and a xylon), for the TWO STICKS/TWO HOUSES of Yisra’el (Ezekiel 37:16-17; Romans 11:17; Zechariah 4:4-14; Revelation 11:4). 

 2.) After Messiah died, the TEMPLE STONES & TEMPLE CURTAIN WERE DIVIDED/TORN IN HALF, to show Yisra’el, that their kingdom would be DIVIDED, and given to the Gentile Nations (Matthew 27:51). 

13.) Messiah’s GARMENTS were DIVIDED by the Roman Soldiers, as they casted lots to see who would win the WEDDING GARMENTS (Psalm 22:18; Matthew 27:25; Mark 15:24). 

*Note: This was symbolic of the gospel going out to the heathen nations, after Messiah died. 

14.) At the end of the world, Yahuwshuwa will DIVIDE the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares. As you examine this graphic, you will see that only ONE MAN could STAND IN THE GAP, BETWEEN THE TWO DIVIDED HOUSES of Yisra’el, and he is the same one who came TO REPAIR THE BREACH BETWEEN THE TWO DIVIDED KINGDOMS. 


He is Malkiy-Tzedeq (Melchizedek), the King of Righteousness, the Lion who SPRANG out of Yahuwdah (Judah)! 

*See Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:15, Revelation 5:5. 

Thus, there is solid proof that we are not in the Great Tribulation yet!

But What About the Human Body as the Temple?

As far as I know, I was the first person on Social Media to liken the President Trump’s “Vaccines” to the Abomination of Desolation for the human body, when I made this graphic on March 21st 2020. 

However, there is scriptural proof that there will also be a BRICK & MORTAR TEMPLE in Jerusalem as well! 

Revelation 11:1-2 tells us that the malak (angel) is told to measure THREE SEPARATE THINGS: 

1.) The Temple. 
2.) The Altar. 
3.) The People inside the Temple who are worshiping. 

This is clearly not referring to the human body, because we don’t have little people walking around inside of our bodies! 

Our Messiah told us EXACTLY when the Great Tribulation will begin in Matthew 24:15-21: 

“When you therefore shall SEE the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE....For THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” 

Based on the Jubilee Cycles shown to us in Genesis 6:3, our Messiah should be returning to earth in the year 6,000 from the creation: 1

20 x 50 = 6,000. 

Josephus the Jewish historian wrote in his “Antiquities,” that 23-24 B.C. was the 79th Jubilee in history. By adding 50 years to 23 B.C., we come to the year our Messiah began his ministry in the 80th Jubilee, which was on Yom Kippur in 27-28 A.D. 

This is further evidenced by the fact he announced the beginning of his ministry when he PREACHED THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF YAHUWAH in Luke 4:18-20. 

By counting 40 more Jubilees (2,000 years), we come to the year 2027-2028 for the next Jubilee year! Not only does Yom Kippur 2028 appear to be a likely candidate for the next Jubilee Year, but it also aligns perfectly with the “FIG TREE PROPHECY” in Matthew 24:32-34: 

Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near:

Matthew 24:33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 


How long is a generation, according to Scripture? 

Psalm 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten [70 years]; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years [80 years], yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and WE FLY AWAY. 


By adding 80 years to 1948, (when the FIG TREE BEGAN TO BLOSSOM), we come to the year 2027-2028 for the next Jubilee Year! I believe it is entirely possible, that our Messiah will catch away his bride on the Feast of Trumpets in 2027 or 2028. Ten days later, she will return with him to earth on the Day of Atonement (riding on white horses with him), as she will be his ARMY, fighting with him against the beast and his army! 

In these last days, the devil is doing everything in his power to discredit the prophecy that came to pass on May 14, 1948, when YaHuWaH caused the nation of Yisra’EL to be “reborn in one day,” according to Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Tziyown (Zion travailed), she brought forth her children. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says YHWH: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your Elohiym. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:10 Rejoice you with Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: 

Yisra’EL is Elohiym’s time clock. The “Fullness of the Gentiles” is a 2,000-year period, and an interlude between the sixty-ninth and seventieth weeks, within the 70 weeks of years prophesied in Daniel 9:24-27. 

To recognize Elohiym’s chronology, we must look for signs that signal the approach of the seventieth week of years. 

“And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, you see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of Elohiym is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled” (Luke 21:29-32). 

Yahuwshuwa warned us to be aware of the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) so that the day of His return would not find us unaware (Luke 21:34-36). 

Yahuwshuwa gave numerous signs that would show the nearness of His return (Luke 21:25-28). He illustrated the principle of signs with the parable of a fig tree. In the parable of the fig tree, we see a symbol of the nation of Yisra’EL. 

We believe in the parable Yahuwshuwa is telling us, that when Yisra’EL comes back to life (like a tree buds in springtime) that is, becomes a nation again, to expect that his return is near. Elohiym’s word shows us that Yisra’EL would be restored as a nation on May 14, 1948. 

Yisra’EL became a nation May 14, 1948

How does this date fulfill prophecy? Luke 21:32 talks about a generation that will not pass away before all these things are fulfilled. The generation that this scripture refers to is the generation that was born when Yisra’EL became a nation. This generation, (born in 1948), will not pass away before the return of Yahuwshuwa Messiah. 

The average length of a generation can be found in Psalm 90:10:

“The days of our years are threescore and ten (70), and if by reason of strength, they be fourscore years (80), yet is there strength, labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” 

Thus, we are told that an average lifespan is between 70-80 years for most people. YaHuWaH promised that He will gather Yisra’EL “Out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land” (Ezekiel 36:24). 

True to prophecy, the people were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, in 606 B.C. (Daniel 1). The Babylonian Captivity lasted 70 years as prophesied in Jeremiah 25:11, ending in 536 B.C. (Ezra 1). At the conclusion of the Babylonian Captivity, 360 years remained of the 430 years prophesied by Ezekiel. 

But Yisra’EL did not repent of its sin. Indeed only 50,000 people returned at the end of the 70 years (Ezra 2:64-65.) Most of Yisra’EL choose not to return with Zerubbabel at that time. In Leviticus 26:18, Elohiym warned Yisra’EL that if Yisra’EL continued in sin after punishment, the punishment would be multiplied 7 times. When the remaining 360 years is multiplied by 7, the punishment extends to 2,520 years. 

Elohiym’s prophetic year is based upon a 360 day year (see Genesis 7:11, 7:24 and 8:5; Revelation 12:6 and 12:14, as examples). 

2,520 years of 360 days is 907,200 days. 

Based upon our solar calendar, this is 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days. 

Adding this period to the date of the decree of King Cyrus discussed in Ezra 1 (see above), we come to the date of May 14, 1948 (do not forget that there is no year 0 A.D.). 

How Does June 7, 1967 Fulfill Prophecy?

The exact same calculation can also apply to the captivity of Jerusalem. When the people were taken into captivity in 606 B.C., the city of Jerusalem was not then destroyed. However, in 587 B.C., Jerusalem was taken and the temple destroyed (2nd Kings 25). 70 years later, in 517 B.C., the temple was reconstructed (Ezra 6:15). 

When we add 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days to this date, we come to June 7, 1967.

What is special about this date? June 7, 1967 is the concluding day of the “6-Day War,” in which Yisra’EL, for the first time since 517 B.C., regained Jerusalem. 

Who are these people that came out of the LAND OF THE NORTH? 

Contrary to those who want to disqualify the Ashkenzi, white European Yahuwdiym (Jews), Scripture tells us that Yah would scatter the twelve tribes to “THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH!” 

This means that its not just black people, and its not just white people! And besides all that, neither bloodline identity, nor skin color has ever been a means to salvation. It has always been about faith and obedience. Abraham began as a Chaldean, before crossing-over to become a Hebrew.

*Note: When Scripture speaks of “four corners of the earth,” it literally means “the four directions,” as in North, East, South, West. It also means “a quarter or a quadrant,” as you would see when slicing an orange into four sections.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 3:18 In those days the house of Yahuwdah (Judah) shall walk with the house of Yisra’el, and they shall come together OUT OF THE LAND OF THE NORTH TO THE LAND I HAVE GIVEN THEM FOR AN INHERITANCE unto your fathers.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 16:15 But, YaHuWaH lives, that brought up the children of Yisra’el FROM THE LAND OF THE NORTH, and FROM ALL THE LANDS whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 23:8 But, YaHuWaH lives, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Yisra’el OUT OF THE NORTH COUNTRY, AND FROM ALL COUNTRIES whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land. 

Many believers don’t get it when it comes to the 3rd Temple that will be built in Jerusalem, just before the Great Tribulation begins. See this article entitled: 

Many are now calling it “The Temple of Satan,” but Scripture never calls it that! 

Just because the False Messiah will defile the Temple of Elohiym, does not mean it is the Temple of Satan! 

If it’s the Temple of Satan to begin with, nobody will care if it gets defiled! 

What makes it so egregious, is that the Temple of Elohiym is holy, because YaHuWaH is the one who designed it, and he owns the copyright on it! 

2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohiym, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohiym sits in THE TEMPLE OF ELOHIYM, showing himself that he is Elohiym.

Revelation 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the malak (angel) stood, saying, Rise, and measure THE TEMPLE OF ELOHIYM, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 

The design of the Tabernacle has always been a template of Messiah, and he owns the copyright on the design! 

The Scriptures prophesy that there will be a Jerusalem Temple during the Great Tribulation, which means that it is the will of YaHuWaH for this to happen. But he also knows that it will be defiled by Satan, and that is when the Great Tribulation begins. 

That is when the Two Witnesses will begin their ministry of 1,260 days. 

The Temple that YaHuWaH commanded Moses to build was made by human hands! 

The Temple that YaHuWaH commanded Solomon to build was made by human hands! 

But that does not mean that it wasn’t his will (just because it was built by human hands). 

When it says in the book of Acts that Elohiym does not dwell in Temples “made with hands,” it simply means that that earthly Temple was merely a template of Messiah, but not meant to be a replacement for having a relationship with Messiah. 

Noah, Abraham, Isaac & Jacob all had a relationship with YaHuWaH before there was a Temple built in Jerusalem. 

The Temple was never meant to replace our connection with him! It was only meant to teach us about him! 

The ultimate Temple in Revelation 21:22 will be Elohiym himself and the Lamb: 

Revelation 21:22 And I saw no Temple therein: for the YaHuWaH Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple of it. 

All earthly Temples merely serve to teach us about his holiness, his attributes and his character! 

It would be the same thing as keeping a framed picture of your spouse on your desk at work. The picture serves as a reminder, but you don’t talk to the picture, and you don’t kiss and hug the picture of your spouse. The same thing is true of the Temple. It serves as a reminder, and a template to teach us about Messiah. It does not mean that the Temple is evil (just because it is made by human hands). 

Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwells not in Temples made with hands; as says the prophet, 

Acts 17:24 Elohiym that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Master of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands.
