According to the Lord Jesus, the prophet Daniel, and John, the apostle of the Lamb (Revelation), the beast will setup his image and throne in The Temple that must be in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount.
In the UAE, in Abu Dhabi, 3 centers of worship is presently being built.
One for Muslims, Christians, and Jews.
But has anyone noticed that Buddhists, Shinto, India’s millions of idols, and other religions are not even in the mix?
Or perhaps they are somehow represented. I don’t know. But is it plausible that joining one religion under three houses is a great starting point for the beast?
There’s isn’t anything in the Scriptures, so far, that’s been discovered that under Abraham, three temples will arise.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Abraham, you will recall from Scripture that Ishmael was Abraham’s first son from Hagar, the Egyptian. Then Issac was born from Sarah, as promised by God. Christ is the son of David, from the tribe of Judah, Judah is one of 12 sons of Jacob, Jacob is the son of Issac, Issac is the son of Abraham.
Now you get the picture of the 3 Temples.
Muslims because of Ishmael’s connection to Abraham.
Judaism because of Issac’s connection to Abraham.
And Christianity because of Christ’s connection to Abraham (see Matthew 1:1-17 and Luke 3:23-38).
There’s no doubt in my mind that a one world religion is the goal because of the ecumenical spirit, which is the antichrist, is already operating in the earth (See 1 John 2:18-22).
So since the Antichrist will manifest himself, the 2 temples and church in Abu Dhabi is only a symbol of temporary appeasement until the Temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount is built.
That’s because the Jews will not accept another location for a temple.
Remember Mount Moriah?
This was where Abraham, instructed by God, almost offered his son as a sacrifice to God and God stopped him (see Genesis 22:1-19). Because it would be in Jerusalem on Golgotha’s hill that God’s only begotten Son would be sacrificed for the sin of the world.
Luke 13:33 (NKJV)
“Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem.”
Further evidence is the place where David purchased the threshing floor of Ornan, the Jebusite.
2 Chronicles 3:1 (NKJV)
“Now Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.”
So we have two confirming Scriptures that indicate that the Temple must be built in Jerusalem.
On Mt. Moriah (Moriah means “chosen by Jehovah”) where Abraham offered his only son Issac and where Solomon was to build the 1st Temple. Of course Herod’s Temple was the 2nd Temple built after the 1st destruction in 586 BC, taking the children out of the land of Israel to Babylon. Around the 9th of Tishri. And then around the 9th or 10th of Tishri, the 2nd Temple was destroyed in AD 70.
There hasn’t been a Temple for the Jewish worship of Jehovah since AD 70.
It only makes sense for the Lord to return to the place that Jehovah chosen, and not another place.
So the place in Abu Dhabi is just a place where ecumenism may have a birth place, but not a resting place.
At the mid way point of the Great Tribulation, the beast in Jerusalem, not Abu Dhabi, will impost that everyone receive the mark on his hand or forehead, AND worship the image. Which means that no other worship of another god will be tolerated (see Revelation 13:11-18).
Now Revelation 18 with the Whore of Babylon has more to do with economic issues than with religion because worship will be to the image of the beast as the abomination of desolation. This means that Muslims and even Jews will be forced to worship the image of the beast set up in the Temple in Jerusalem (see Daniel 9:26-27, and Matthew 24:15).
True followers of Christ will be beheaded for the testimony of Jesus during the Great Tribulation, and Christ will not be tolerated either.
Watch carefully those that assemble themselves with other religions. Compromising their beliefs in Christ. Accepting associations instead of separating themselves from darkness according to 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. Turning from Christ to associate themselves with other religions under the false guise of peace and unity (see 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12).
It’s happening even before our eyes.
Watch carefully what false preachers are preaching (2 Peter chapter 2).
There’s no concern about the current events but major concern about other things that have nothing to do with the soon return of the Savior.
Watch the mockers of His imminent coming. For even in the days of the apostles of the Lamb, they were expecting His return even then.
It’s sad that there’s so many believers that do not believe that His return is imminent.
It’s like what Peter stated.
2 Peter 3:1-4 (NKJV)
“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
When the music stops, and you’re without a chair to sit in, you can’t blame anyone else but yourself.
