The Jews are Expecting the Rebuilding of the Temple
Click on Images to Enlarge
Jews know that they are under the Curse and are waiting for the
Temple to be rebuilt and the reinstitution of animal sacrifice for
the removal of sin. This is best explained by a scenario that took
place soon after the Jewish State of Israel was set up.
scenario went something like this: The Jews are still under the
period of the curse. They don't have their Temple and the sacrifices
for sins. A reporter interviewed a famous Israeli historian, Israel
Eldad. In looking up at the Temple site in answer to the question,
"Do your people intend to rebuild the Temple?" Eldad said:
"From the time that King David first conquered Jerusalem until
Solomon built the Temple, just one generation passed. So will it
be with us."
reporter asked, "Why don't you build the Temple now?"
replied, "We can't because the Dome of the Rock (Omar's Temple)
is on the Temple site."
don't you tear it down?"
replied, "That would bring on a disastrous war with all of
Islam united against us."
reporter asked, "What are you going to do?"
replied, "Maybe there will be an earthquake."
reporter asked, "If you built the Temple, how is it going to
function? The High Priesthood came to an end about the second century
replied, "Well, we will have to wait for our Messiah. He will
have all the answers."
the Jews had listened to Paul, an apostle to Jesus, in his Epistle
to the Hebrews, they would be informed that the Temple that is to
be is one not built by hands, that is,
the Temple built by hands will never be rebuilt. The Great Pyramid
shows that the Ante-chamber, or the Sanctuary, representing the
Bab, and the King's Chamber, representing Baha'u'llah, are a blueprint
for the re-establishment of the Temple of Moses. As Moses was the
Temple (the presence of God), so too are the Bab and Baha'u'llah,
being Manifestations of God, representative of the Temple.
Grand Gallery brings us to two Chambers which represent the re-establishment
of the Temple of Moses, consisting of the Sanctuary and the Holy
of Holies. In this Temple, the Bab
and his Revelation are as the Sanctuary, and Baha'u'llah and His
Revelation are as the Holy of Holies. (see Figure 23) These
two Manifestations are the Temple not made by hands.
For Christ [Jesus] is not entered into the
holy places made with hands, which are the figures
[symbols] of the true [one]; but into heaven itself, now to appear
in the presence of God for us. (Hebrews 9:24)
Bab is the return of Jesus as the Door (or Gate) and Baha'u'llah
as the return of Christ. They are the Temple of the heaven of prophecy
that Jesus entered into.
