"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong." —Voltaire
Historically, all nations have sought to build houses of worship unto G-d and gods, as well as unto themselves, and one another. Only a single Nation has been given the Command and Authority to build a House unto G-d. That Nation is Israel.
A Third Temple must needs be built for the fulfillment of Scripture. And It must be built by the hands of those Living Stones and Timbers Created in the Resurrection of the Christ. Behold, We are the Everlasting Living Temple and Testimony of Our G-d.
Ezr 5:4, 11 Then said we unto them after this manner, What are the names of the men that make this building?
And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the G-d of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.
Each Temple, the labor and constant upkeep thereof, supply and demand, etc., like any other exploit and kingdom under Heaven seems as much its reason for being destroyed, as it was for being erected. The major difference between every other work undertaken by men in the Name of G-d, and that of the Temple built under Solomon’s Reign, is that G-d actually came down from Heaven and filled the Temple with His Presence. I imagine it was because Solomon had done it, and in him was the pure love and devout fear of the L-RD, like unto that in Jesus.
When Solomon dedicated the Temple with many words and many offerings, he stated that as glorious and worthy as the Work may have been, the final result of anything We might achieve in the Name of our G-d could never be suitably grand nor splendrous enough to House the Holy. The Creation was Designed for that Purpose and is the House G-d Himself "built" for Himself and "gave" to mankind and angels, etc. Indwelling each, fashioning Us in His own Image, Living Temples who might manifest His Very Divine Nature, as One in Creation, subduing and enlightening the same by His Awesome Power, Divinely channeled into and through Us, unto all the world and worlds therein.
It must be understood that since the destruction of the Temple built under Solomon, G-d has not been at Jerusalem, nor is He returning to rebuild or fashion a third Temple there. Instead, G-d sent Himself, in the person of Jesus Christ, being the exact similitude of Solomon, unto his own Temple to condemn it and warn of its final and everlasting destruction.
Matthew 27:50-53 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
The Third Temple would be "built" by G-ds own Hands, in a Land which might be "discovered" and regarded as Holy by True Disciples who see, hear, feel and know Holiness.
Exd. 15:17-18 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O L-RD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O L-RD, which thy hands have established. The L-RD shall reign for ever and ever.
Behold, I have been to the top of the new Mt Moriah, and have seen the Holy Land! She is ours forever more. Defile and pollute Her no more! Drive out Her spoilers and defilers if you love this nation under G-d!
We decide to embark upon building this Third Temple unto to His Manifest Glory, it must needs be built with the complete opposite Kavanah, or Intention and Divination’s of Form and Function if Its result be the humbling of His Disciples and unto mankind’s service in the L-rd, those willing to join Israel and seek the L-RD, their G-d(Ezra 6:21).
Being providers, rather than receivers of offerings, or taxmen and collectors of tributes. Such is our Mission and Doctrine and the Covenant Renewed Absolute. No pomp permitted, nor holiness perverted unto vanity or worse.
The root cause of Israel’s straying and going after heathen women and adopting their pagan ways, besides sin and separation from G-d, may again be the very simplicity and Divine Nature of the Christ misunderstood and implemented by men. Abused unto unproductive, unprofitable, gluttonous disregard leading to chaos that made the affect of G-d and the effectiveness of G-d’s disciples vain and ultimately harmful.
When disciples stray from the House of the L-RD, into the world after whatever led them astray, He yet remaineth their L-RD and His Promises remain Covenanted Everlastingly, no matter if every last member of the House forsake Him.
Isa 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb [to be] his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
Hsa 5:15 I will go [and] return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
Luk 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
To return in complete repentance, as a humble lamb unto a Holy Lamb you’ve betrayed and disasterously abused the Name, Fame, Game and Frame of, when thou, thineself must needs be like unto a ferociously savage dragon, fighting to survive in the wilderness this apostasy created, and offer a free-will offering unto a Being who provides the will and means of making the same, with all due humility and graceful care, must seem maddeningly impossible, yet He will make you able of the very same, for nothing is impossible with G-d. And there has been no other nation on earth that has offered so much, in so many ways unto Her L-RD, as America/Israel has. She has somehow, in the midst of every maddening war and time of trouble found the ways and means marvelous, of enabling Her citizens to do this sanctifying and redeeming Work amongst a sea of troubles and threats both within and without. And it is by remembering what is improtant to the L-RD that She has been able to do so. Beauty in Holiness, a certain Dickensian World charm and manner of the Manor born. Forthright regard for innocency; preserved everlastingly unto the sanctification and redemption of all.
I CHRONICLES 22:11
Now, my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God, as he hath said of thee.
3-11 This proclamation shall be made to all the kings of the world, to the four corners thereof, to the honorable president-elect, and the high-minded governors of the nation in which you live, and to all the nations of the earth scattered abroad.
Let it be written in the spirit of meekness and by the power of the Holy Ghost, which shall be in you at the time of the writing of the same;
For it shall be given you by the Holy Ghost to know my will concerning those kings and authorities, even what shall befall them in a time to come.
For, behold, I am about to call upon them to give heed to the light and glory of Zion, for the set time has come to favor her.
Call ye, therefore, upon them with loud proclamation, and with your testimony, fearing them not, for they are as grass, and all their glory as the flower thereof which soon falleth, that they may be left also without excuse—
And that I may visit them in the day of visitation, when I shall unveil the face of my covering, to appoint the portion of the oppressor among hypocrites, where there is gnashing of teeth, if they reject my servants and my testimony which I have revealed unto them.
And again, I will visit and soften their hearts, many of them for your good, that ye may find grace in their eyes, that they may come to the light of truth, and the Gentiles to the exaltation or lifting up of Zion.
For the day of my visitation cometh speedily, in an hour when ye think not of; and where shall be the safety of my people, and refuge for those who shall be left of them?
Awake, O kings of the earth! Come ye, O, come ye, with your gold and your silver, to the help of my people, to the house of the daughters of Zion.
23-28 And it shall be for a house for boarding, a house that strangers may come from afar to lodge therein; therefore let it be a good house, worthy of all acceptation, that the weary traveler may find health and safety while he shall contemplate the word of the Lord; and the corner-stone I have appointed for Zion.
This house shall be a healthful habitation if it be built unto my name, and if the governor which shall be appointed unto it shall not suffer any pollution to come upon it. It shall be holy, or the Lord your God will not dwell therein.
And again, verily I say unto you, let all my saints come from afar.
And send ye swift messengers, yea, chosen messengers, and say unto them: Come ye, and see the house my servants have built unto my name, for the Most High to dwell therein. Left to waste while the kings of the earth built cities unto themselves upon foundations of corruption and iniquity.
For there is not a place found on earth like unto this one that he may come to and restore again that which was lost unto you, or which he hath taken away, even the fulness of the priesthood. And yet they come to destroy what good and worth might be left in my house and city, to make my house like unto their abominations! They come with gifts and gold and silver and the wisdom of men and intent of theives! They buy up my land with filthy lucre and divide it up amongst themselves, as warriors divide spoil in war! They know not what worth is, nor what true riches are. They know only their bellies urges and hunger. Dumb beasts are they, yet my people’s disobedience and false dealings with the world have brought such upon themselves and my city. My people shall serve the Beast, yet shall dwell safely in the midst of abominable and unmerciful creatures for I am with them to save and deliver. Yea, let all the glory of fair Zion be taken away, yet my kindness shall never be taken away from Her. My people bid it come, and so it shall until all be destroyed and worthlessly abominable. None saith restore! None pleadeth for holiness!
35-50,52 And after this time, your baptisms for the dead, by those who are scattered abroad, are not acceptable unto me, saith the Lord.
For it is ordained that in Zion, and in her stakes, and in the New Jerusalem, those places which I have appointed for refuge, shall be the places for your baptisms for your dead.
And again, verily I say unto you, how shall your washings be acceptable unto me, except ye perform them in a house which you have built to my name?
For, for this cause I commanded Moses that he should build a tabernacle, that they should bear it with them in the wilderness, and to build a house in the land of promise, that those ordinances might be revealed which had been hid from before the world was.
Therefore, verily I say unto you, that your anointings, and your washings, and your baptisms for the dead, and your solemn assemblies, and your memorials for your sacrifices by the sons of Levi, and for your oracles in your most holy places wherein you receive conversations, and your statutes and judgments, for the beginning of the revelations and foundation of Zion, and for the glory, honor, and endowment of all her municipals, are ordained by the ordinance of my holy house, which my people were once commanded to build unto my holy name.
And verily I say unto you, let this house be built unto my name, that I may reveal mine ordinances therein unto my people;
For I deign to reveal unto my church things which have been kept hid from before the foundation of the world, things that pertain to the dispensation of the fulness of times.
And I will show unto my servants, the Jews, all things pertaining to this house, and the priesthood thereof, and the place whereon it shall be built.
And ye shall build it on the place where you have contemplated building it, for that is the spot which I have chosen for you to build it.
If ye labor with all your might, I will consecrate that spot that it shall be made holy.
And if my people will hearken unto my voice, and unto the voice of my servants whom I shall appoint to lead my people, behold, verily I say unto you, they shall not be moved out of their place.
But if they will not hearken to my voice, nor unto the voice of these men whom I shall appoint, they shall not be blest, because they pollute mine holy grounds, and mine holy ordinances, and my holy words which I give unto them.
And it shall come to pass that if you build a house unto my name, and do not do the things that I say, I will not perform the oath which I make unto you, neither fulfil the promises which ye expect at my hands, saith the Lord.
For instead of blessings, ye, by your own works, bring cursings, wrath, indignation, and judgments upon your own heads, by your follies, and by all your abominations, which you practise before me, saith the Lord.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, that when I give a commandment to any of the sons of men to do a work unto my name, and those sons of men go with all their might and with all they have to perform that work, and cease not their diligence, and their enemies come upon them and hinder them from performing that work, behold, it behooveth me to require that work no more at the hands of those sons of men, but to accept of their offerings.
And the iniquity and transgression of my holy laws and commandments I will visit upon the heads of those who hindered my work, unto the third and fourth generation, so long as they repent not, and hate me, saith the Lord God.
And I will answer judgment, wrath, and indignation, wailing, and anguish, and gnashing of teeth upon their heads, unto the third and fourth generation, so long as they repent not, and hate me, saith the Lord your God.
87,90 Therefore, let my servant William (Betzalel) put his trust in me, and cease to fear concerning his family, because of the sickness of the land. If ye love me, keep my commandments; and the sickness of the land shall redound to your glory.
And if he will do this I will bless him with a multiplicity of blessings, that he shall not be forsaken, nor his seed be found begging bread.
143-145 The above offices I have given unto you, and the keys thereof, for helps and for governments, for the work of the ministry and the perfecting of my saints.
And a commandment I give unto you, that you should fill all these offices and approve of those names which I shall mention, or else disapprove of them.
And that ye should prepare rooms for all these offices in my house when you build it unto my name, saith the Lord your God. Even so. Amen.
A GREAT and marvelous work is about to come forth unto the children of men.
I am HaShem your G-d; give heed unto my word, which is quick and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of both joints and marrow. The field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of G-d.
Yea, whosoever will thrust in his sickle and reap, the same is called of G-d.
Therefore, if you will ask of me you shall receive; if you will knock it shall be opened unto you.
Now, as you have asked, I say unto you, keep my commandments, and seek to bring forth and establish the cause of Zion;
Seek not for riches but for wisdom, and the mysteries of the L-RD shall be unfolded unto you, and then shall you be made rich. He that hath eternal life is rich.
Verily, I say unto you, even as you desire of me so it shall be done unto you; and if you desire, you shall be the means of doing much good in this generation.
Say nothing but repentance unto this generation; keep my commandments, and assist to bring forth my work, according to my commandments, and you shall be blessed.
Thou hast a gift, and blessed art thou because of thy gift. Remember it is sacred and cometh from above—
And if thou wilt inquire, thou shalt know mysteries which are great and marvelous; therefore thou shalt exercise thy gift, that thou mayest find out mysteries, that thou mayest bring many to the knowledge of the truth, yea, convince them of the error of their ways.
If thou wilt do good, yea, and hold out faithful to the end, thou shalt be saved in the kingdom of G-d, which is the greatest of all the gifts of G-d; for there is no gift greater than the gift of salvation.
Verily, I say unto thee, blessed art thou for what thou hast done; for thou hast inquired of me, and behold, as often as thou hast inquired thou hast received instruction of my Spirit.
If it had not been so, thou wouldst not have come to the place where thou art at this time.
Thou knowest that thou hast inquired of me and I did enlighten thy mind; and now I tell thee these things that thou mayest know that thou hast been enlightened by the Spirit of truth;
Yea, I tell thee, that thou mayest know that there is none else save G-d that knowest thy thoughts and the intents of thy heart.
I tell thee these things as a witness unto thee—that the words or the work which thou hast been writing are true.
Therefore be diligent; stand by my servants, faithfully, in whatsoever difficult circumstances they may be for the word’s sake.
Admonish them in their faults, and also receive admonition of them. Be patient; be sober; be temperate; have faith, hope and charity.
Thou art Oliver (Avshalom), and I have spoken unto thee because of thy desires; therefore treasure up these words in thy heart.
Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of G-d, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love.
I am HaShem, thy G-d. I am the same that sent unto mine own, and mine own received Me not. I am the light which shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not.
Verily, I say unto you, if you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart, that you might know concerning the truth of these things.
Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from G-d?
And now, behold, you have received a witness; for if I have told you things which no man knoweth have you not received a witness?
I grant unto you a gift, if you desire of me, to unfold the mysteries of the Scriptures unto this generation, even as my prophets of old did truthfully bring forth my word in the midst of an unbelieving generation and generations. Thou shalt be my servant.
And thou shalt rectify the mistranslation and perversion of the little book called after "Mormon" to make it of good and proper use to this Generation. For verily, this is the Generation that shall bring to pass my marvelous work and wonder unto all the world, or surely be destroyed of their own unbelieving wills and darkened minds and filthy heart’s desires. Thou shalt cleanse them through thine words and they shall be made clean even against their own base natures and evil heart’s desires. They shall grow up into worthy vessels, for the works which I, HaShem have created them to perform, and though no man mark nor praise their works, everyman shall nonetheless know and feel the works’ might, for it is of Me. And thou shalt know that I am He. I am the L-rd thy G-d, who took Israel out from among the heathen and cleansed them to be a people before me and to serve and exalt the Living G-d in deed, word and in Truth forever. For I have wed Her to myself and I will never grant Her a writ of divorcement. Thou art mine forever.
Verily, I say unto you, this work has been kept back because of the wickedness of the people;
And now I command you, that if you have good desires—a desire to lay up treasures for yourself in heaven then shall you assist in bringing to light, with your gift, those parts of my scriptures which have been hidden because of iniquity.
And now, I give unto you, and also unto my Remnant, the keys of this gift, which shall bring to light this Ministry; and in the Witness of the entire Creation shall every word be established.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, if they reject my words, and this part of my gospel and ministry, blessed are ye, for they can do no more unto you than unto me.
And even if they do unto you even as they have done unto me, blessed are ye, for you shall dwell with me in glory.
But if they reject not my words, which shall be established by the testimony which shall be given, blessed are they, and then shall ye have joy in the fruit of your labors.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, as I said unto my disciples, where two or three are gathered together in my name there will I be in the midst of them—even so am I in the midst of you. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Fear not to do good, my sons, for whatsoever ye sow, that shall ye also reap; therefore, if ye sow good ye shall also reap good for your reward.
Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail.
I do not condemn you; go your ways and sin no more; perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you.
Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
Be faithful, keep my commandments, and ye shall inherit the kingdom of heaven. Amen.
