There are several reasons why the Dome of the Rock will make way for a Third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.
1) Freemasonry Demands that the Temple be Built
Freemasonry is intrinsically Jewish.
The well-known rabbi, Isaac Wise concluded emphatically: “Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords, and explanations, are Jewish from beginning to end.”
An Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry, Philadelphia, 1906: “Each Lodge is and must be a symbol of the Jewish temple; each Master in the Chair, a representative of the Jewish King; and every Mason a personification of the Jewish workman.”
Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1903, Vol, 5, page 503: “The technical language, symbolism and rites of Freemasonry are full of Jewish ideas and terms . . . In the Scottish Rite, the dates on official documents are given according to the era and months of the Jewish calendar, and use is made of the Hebraic alphabet.”
La Verite Israelite, Jewish paper 1861, IV, page 74: “The spirit of Freemasonry is the spirit of Judaism in its most fundamental beliefs; it is its ideas, its language, it is mostly its organization, the hopes which enlighten and support Israel. It’s crowning will be that wonderful prayer house of which Jerusalem will be the triumphal centre and symbol.”
From the quote in La Verite Israelite above, we see that the crowning of Freemasonry is the “wonderful prayer house”, Jerusalem’s Temple, which will be the triumphal centre and symbol. Symbol of what? Freemasonry!
Freemasonry is Judaism, but not the Judaism of the Bible. It is the Judaism of the Israelite slaves as they made their way out of Egypt. These were the men and women who carried the gods of Egypt in their hearts and perhaps in their luggage. Few ever gave much more than lip-service to the Law as given by Moses; few rejoiced in the cloud and the pillar of fire that accompanied them during their wanderings in the wilderness. Because of their lack of faith in the God who had released them from their yoke of slavery under Pharaoh, this generation died before entering the land promised them by God. It was their offspring who crossed the Jordan and took the land from the Canaanite inhabitants.
From the inception of Israel’s history then, there were those who would not bow the knee to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They may have performed the rituals, attended the sacrifices and kept the feasts, but they were Jews in name only.
Solomon, son of King David, built the Temple in Jerusalem. (See my previous post for a potted history of the first and second temples.) The Jews, bound by strict religious laws, were especially jealous of those things pertaining to their worship of YWHW. King David would have been aware that in the wilderness, God had raised up men with the skills needed for the construction of the tabernacle and would would never have involved a foreigner in the building of the Temple. Solomon erred from the beginning
King Hiram of Tyre introduced his namesake, Hiram, to Solomon in a letter, referring to the master craftsman as Hiramabi, or Hiram my father, an appellation later adopted by Solomon himself in reference to the artisan. This in itself indicated that Hiram was no ordinary man. Undoubtedly he was a high initiate because the story of Freemasonry begins with this man.
Freemasons would later become known as Sons of the Widow, but the association with Hiram and Solomon’s Temple was a cover for a far earlier adherence. Their primary allegiance, as with that of the Knights Templar before them, was to Isis, the widow woman, and their identification was with Horus, the son.
In giving Solomon his own sage, King Hiram, himself a worshipper of Ashteroth, had knowingly loosed a pagan bull into Israel’s Temple.
2) Orthodox Jews Anticipate the Third Temple
The coming of the Jewish Messiah is directly associated with the temple and its rebuilding is one of the 613 obligations in the Jewish Torah.
In a yet unfulfilled prophecy in the book of Zechariah (6:12,13) it is said:
Behold the man whose name is the BRANCH: and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord.
Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne:
Millions have already been spent in preparing for the Temple’s reconstruction and most, if not all, of the sacred objects used in temple worship have been prepared, including a new Ark of the Covenant.
3) God says it will be built
The Third Temple is central to the book of Revelation, which is the final book of the Bible. Revelation’s prophecies cannot be fulfilled without Jerusalem’s Temple. Before the end of this present age, a world leader who comes in the name of Christ, will enter the Holy Place in this temple and declare himself god.
We stand on the very cusp of history. Orthodox Jews await the hand of YWHW in the removal of the Dome of the Rock in order that a new temple be built. Freemasonry has everything in place for the final thrust. Are we ready for what is about to unfold?
