It is written:
“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.” (Daniel 12:11-12)
In this passage is found an amazing prophecy that has begun to be fulfilled in our day and age. The facts of this prophecy are truly astonishing.
Specifically we are informed that this wicked king (Daniel 11:35-12:13) will work to remove the daily sacrifices from the temple. This means, however, that the temple has been rebuilt and the sacrifices of the Jewish people have resumed. The Romans destroyed the temple in 70 A.D. and scattered the Jewish people around the world. It was a not, therefore, possible that the sacrifices could be performed from that time.
Yet Daniel the Prophet saw a day, far into the Christian Era, when the animal sacrifices of the temple would resume, implying the return of the Jewish people to their land and the reconstruction of a third Jewish temple.
The Jews began returning to their land in the year 1948, as Ezekiel the Prophet had foretold nearly six hundred years before Jesus was born (Ezekiel 4:1-4). Now, there is evidence that plans for a third Jewish temple are underway.
“The Illustrated London News, August 28, 1909, ran a spectacular supplement detailing this goal. The article was titled, “The Freemason’s Plan to Rebuild Solomon’s Temple at Jerusalem.” Three years later, September 22, 1912, the New York Times published an outline by Freemasons to rebuild the Temple under the title, “Solomon’s Temple: Scheme of Freemasons and Opinions of Jews on Rebuilding.”…Others, including Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, who accurately predicted the Trump victory before the election using Bible codes, have chimed in. Glazerson found various connections between Trump and moshiach (“messiah”) in the codes, which in Hebrew means “anointed,” and led Glazerson to conclude that his election is connected to the coming of Messiah….More recently, the Sanhedrin authorized the minting of two coins—the “Half Shekel Cyrus Trump Temple Coin,” and shortly thereafter, the “70 Years Israel Redemption Temple Coin,” both of which depict Donald Trump and the ancient Persian King Cyrus (who empowered the building of the Second Temple) on the front side with the Third Temple on the back. In an article for Breaking Israel News, the reasons for the commemorative coins were tied specifically to the Trump administration as the catalyst for building the Third Temple. In fact, rabbis associated with the effort go so far as to say the success of Trump’s presidency depends on his efforts to initiate the building of the new Solomon-like house of worship. “In gratitude to US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Jerusalem, the nascent Sanhedrin and the Mikdash (Temple) Educational Center are minting a replica of the silver half-shekel Biblically mandated to be donated by every Jewish male to the Temple,” the report stated, before adding, “Rabbi Weiss stressed that Trump’s [US administration] goals will come to fruition only if they are geared towards rebuilding the Jewish Temple” (emphasis added)….To further stipulate the role that the rabbis see Trump divinely appointed to perform, the following amazing statement is published inside the official Sanhedrin sanctioned “70 Years Israel” Redemption Coin brochure: President Trump is advancing a prophetic process that will usher in—when the time comes—the rebuilding of the Third Temple. It is as if he is following in the footsteps of King Cyrus who pronounced, after 70 years of Jewish exile, that: Hashem, the Lord of the World, charged me to build him a house in Jerusalem.

Horn, The Rabbis, Donald Trump, And The Top-Secret Plan To Build The Third Temple: Unveiling The Incendiary Scheme By Religious Authorities, Government Agents, And Jewish Rabbis To Invoke Messiah, 277-384 (Kindle Edition): Defender Publishing)
For the first time in over two thousand years, the stage is being set for the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy regarding the rebuilt third temple. This is another powerful evidence that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that we need to build our lives on its’ teachings. We may not know the day or the hour when the Lord will return (Matthew 24:36), but one thing is for certain: Jesus is coming back.
