Israel’s Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi David Lau joined a growing list of Israeli politicians who are calling for the Third Temple to be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He suggested the Messianic vision could be realized without touching Muslim structures at the site by simply building a new structure alongside the existing Muslim buildings that stand on the site of the previous two Jewish Temples.
He expressed his vision citing the Prophet Isaiah. “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7
In an interview two weeks ago on the Knesset Channel, the Chief Rabbi said that, according to the measurements for the Temple described by the sages, the Third Temple would not take up the entire Temple Mount Compound and there would be plenty of room for “Jews, Christians, Muslims, everyone.”
These statements made by Israel’s chief rabbi perfectly match what the Bible prophesies for the very near future. Revelation 11:1-2 foretells the sharing of the Temple Mount between Jew and Gentile. This will undoubtedly come to pass when a peace agreement is finally reached between Palestinians and Israel.
