The Third Temple And Donald Trump

Coinkydink 1: Donald Trump and the Kings
King Cyrus
In Isaiah 45:1 Yahweh says of Cyrus: “I have taken hold of your right hand to help you capture nations and remove kings from power.”
Several prophecies by Mark Taylor and Torah Code expert, Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, predicted that Donald Trump would be the man appointed to be president. It is said that Cyrus died at the age of 70, and on the first day of his Presidency, January 21, 2016, Donald Trump turned 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old. It would appear that if Donald Trump is the “new Cyrus” then he has taken up the mantle that the Biblical Cyrus departed. Not only is Trump the 45th President, he seems bound and determined to remove at least one king, the Ayatollah of Iran, from power.
Just a coincidence, I’m sure. . . !

Isaiah 44:28 – Yahweh says to Cyrus: “My shepherd, he will fulfill all my pleasure and say to Jerusalem: ‘She will be rebuilt, and of the temple: Its foundation will be laid.”
Ezra 1:2 – “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘Yahweh Elohim of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah’.”
Donald Trump has been compared to King Cyrus of Persia by several people and news outlets. It has even been conjectured that Yahweh might use Trump to be a modern day Cyrus for the good of Israel. He might even use Trump to be a modern day Cyrus for the good of America.

The Sanhedrin declares that Trump is advancing a prophetic process that will usher in, when the time comes, the rebuilding of the Third Temple. Rabbis believe that Donald Trump is guided by Ha’Shem [Yahweh] and that he has been anointed to rebuild the Third Temple.
But is this at all scriptural?

King Darius
Haggai 1:1-4 – “In the second year of Darius the king, . . . the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai, the prophet, saying, “Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies waste?
Trump has also been compared to King Darius as well as to Cyrus. Cyrus had already told them to build the temple. Darius agreed, but the people questioned whether or not it was time. The Israeli Sanhedrin has been making plans for the rebuilt third Temple, and in 2016 called upon Donald Trump and Vladamir Putin to “join forces and fulfill their Biblically mandated roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.” As of 2018, the foundations of the dwelling place (house) for the High Priest and the foundations of a museum are being laid next to Western Wall at the back of the wall according to Pastor Paul Begley.
Just another coincidence, I’m sure. . . !

Coinkydink 2: Donald Trump and the Rabbis
Just prior to his death in January 2006, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri began telling Jewish people worldwide to return to Israel, saying “things are shaking, so that we can rebuild the Third Temple.” He further stated that the Messiah would return after the death of Ariel Sharon, which happened in January 2014.

As of today, some of his disciples have declared that Messiah is already here, and when the time is right, he will make himself known. This comes from the two messiah teaching about Mashiach ben Joseph and Mashiach ben David. In their thinking, a man, Mashiach ben Joseph, will be the precursor making the way for Mashiach ben David. Some Orthodox Rabbis have even stated that Donald Trump is Mashiach ben Joseph.
Yet another coincidence, I’m sure. . . !

Coinkydink 3: Donald Trump and Gematria
Psalm 140:4 – “They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent; vipers’ venom is under their lips.”
Many Rabbis use Gematria, or Hebrew numerology, for revealing hidden meaning in the Bible. Gematria is not an exact science but is widely used and generally accepted. It is studied and taught by major rabbis and Jewish thinkers. It has been a part of Biblical interpretation, with examples in the Mishna (the oral law) dating from the first century, and in later times in the Kabbalah.

When applied to the name Donald Trump (דונלד טראמפ), it is the same as that of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד), 424 or 212 x 2. Yikes. . . !

The Gematria of Donald Trump’s name also points to one of his traits that has been especially problematic: 424 is the equivalent of “like a snake” (כְּמוֹ-נָחָשׁ) which is referred to in Psalm 140:4. This application of Gematria does not mean that Donald Trump is the Messiah, but that his presidency will usher in the Messianic era. Ben Ish Chai, an authority on Jewish law and master Kabbalist, interpreted the number 212 as a difficult time for Israel before the Final Redemption. Yeranen Yaakov interprets this to mean that a Donald Trump presidency will be doubly bad for the Jewish people. In either case, the dark period is the anticipated necessary step immediately preceding the Messiah. Double Yikes. . . !

Coinkydink 4: Donald Trump and Fake News
Isaiah 44:24-25 – “I am Yahweh who . . . who destroys the omens of the false prophets and makes fools of diviners; who confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness; who confirms the message of His servant, and who says to the depths of the sea: ‘Be dry’.”
The false information disseminated by numerous news agencies has time and time again forced those same agencies to disavow their false prophets! They sound like fools, totally confounded by what Donald Trump and his administration is accomplishing. “This became apparent after multiple stories from a variety of some of the biggest networks, NYT, CNN, Washington Post, ABC News, CBS News, and MSNBC, have had to be corrected, edited, changed, re-headlined and in some cases completely retracted, and in other cases employees were forced to resign or were suspended, once the truth was revealed”, according to All News Pipeline. Despite the continuing anti-Trump sentiment and vitriol, Trump’s message is going out and his agenda to clean up the swamp, or to dry up the sea as scripture puts it, is slowly picking up steam – Yahweh seems to be affirming the message of his appointed servant.
Yah, Yah, I know, just another coincidence. . . !

Coinkydink 5: Donald Trump and the Temple Coins
Donald Trump has proved to the world that he not only makes declarations, but also acts upon his beliefs:

  • He transferred the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and
  • He declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel.

And following this historic event, the Trump Temple Coins were minted. The concept was conceived by Professor Hillel Weiss and the coins were produced by the Mikdash Educational Center in Jerusalem:

  • The Trump Temple Coins are not just medallions or souvenirs.
  • The coins are called a half-shekel, and are nine and one-half grams (one fifth of an ounce – Exodus 30:13) of silver. According to the Mikdash Temple Educational Center, this meets the Torah specifications for actual coins that can be used in the temple services.

Psalm 147:2 –“Yahweh builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel.”
The coins are precious coins that have an entire story to tell. They call for the continuation of the in-gathering of the Jewish exiles from all corners of the globe. They will come to the Land of Israel, to Jerusalem and the Temple, and to the fulfillment of peace in the world, through the establishment of the Third Temple and the realization of the prophetic vision. The message on the coin is addressed to all the “Seventy Nations” who are called upon to accompany the Jewish People on their journey to establish the Holy Temple as a place of peace. The Menorah, the symbol of the State of Israel, stands in the center of the coin, together with the ancient Persian emblem and the seal of the United States of America. It represents the light of the Temple spreading out to the world.

On Monday, March 5, 2018, in Washington D.C., shortly after the Trump Temple Coins were produced, Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed President Trump and also compared Trump to King Cyrus, saying:
I want to tell you that the Jewish people have a long memory; so we remember the proclamation of the great king, Cyrus the Great, the Persian king, 2,500 years ago. He proclaimed that the Jewish exiles in Babylon could come back and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem . . . . And we remember how a few weeks ago, President Donald J. Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Mr. President, this will be remembered by our people through the ages.”
Just another coincidence, no doubt . . . !

Coinkydink 6: The Copper Scroll and the Tabernacle of David
Isaiah 45:3 – “I will give you treasures hoarded in the dark, secret riches hidden away, so that you will know that I, Yahweh, am the God of Israel.”
The Copper Scroll is an account of sixty-four locations where gold, silver, and other treasures are said to be buried, which is thought to be written between 25AD and 135AD. However, these dates may only indicate when the scroll itself was created, as some of the words used in the scroll date back to the period around 500BC! The scroll, on two rolls of copper, was found along with many other scrolls in the caves around the Dead Sea on March 14, 1952 at the back of Cave 3 at Qumran. The Copper Scroll is written in a style similar to the Hebrew of the Mishnah, an unusual style of writing different from the other scrolls. It is believed to refer to the Tabernacle of David and the treasures of the Temple of Solomon which were hidden for safekeeping before the destruction of the Temple by the Babylonians. It may, in fact, have been written in haste by an illiterate person just before the Babylonian invaders made their entrance.

The Copper Scroll, written in columns, was found along with many other scrolls in the caves around the Dead Sea, has been translated by Jim Barfield. Jim Barfield has discovered that Qumran is a mirror image of Jerusalem, and that the locations of treasures of Solomon’s Temple described by the Copper Scroll have now been identified.

Neither the Babylonian’s List of stolen Temple items nor the Bible offers any information about whether the Ark of the Covenant was stolen, lost, or destroyed. The Copper Scroll may shed light on this issue and may even lead to the Ark’s recovery, tons of silver and gold, worth around three billion dollars today; gems, and coins worth around four to five billion dollars today, as well as the Tabernacle of David!

According to the Jewish Christian Lit website article, The Copper Scroll 3Q15, these hidden treasures may include:

  • A strongbox of silver and its vessels with a weight of seventeen talents (Columns 1 thru 8)
  • Votive vessels and priestly garments; i.e. The Breastplate of the High Priest (Column 4)
  • Ten vessels of offering of pine resin, and an offering of senna (Column 9)
  • Dozens of talents of gold, in various places (Columns 11, 12)

According to Copper Scroll expert B. Pixner

  • The urn [Qalal] which held the ashes of the Red Heifer (Column 26)

As prophesied, the treasures hoarded in the dark and the secret riches hidden away are being revealed! Hooray . . . !

Coinkydink 7: Eternal Jerusalem
2 Chronicles 33:4 – “And Yahweh said, ‘In Jerusalem shall my name be forever’.”
Zechariah 1:11-17 – An angel asks Yahweh “How long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which you have had indignation these seventy years? ” Yahweh replies: “I have returned to Jerusalem with mercy. My house shall be built in it.”
Donald Trump has clearly stated his love for Israel and the Israeli people by declaring: “Jerusalem is the eternal Capital of the Jewish people! ” Israel has now been a nation for seventy years. This is when Yahweh says his house will be built and he will begin to judge the nations, at the end of the 70 years, in the second year of an administration. In 2018 we were in the 2nd year of Trump’s presidency.

Plans to rebuild the Third Temple are well underway. A growing number of politicians and Rabbis are calling for the temple to be built, in response to the call by the Sanhedrin in 2018 to include the building of the Third Temple as part of their political campaigns:

  • Moshe Feiglin declared: “I don’t want to build a (Third) Temple in one or two years, I want to build it now.”
  • Shmuel Sackett told Breaking Israel News: “Building the 3rd and final temple in Jerusalem has been the dream of Jews for more than 2,000 years. The goal of the State of Israel is to bring about the fulfillment of the Jewish dream and not the destruction of it.”
  • John Enarson, the Christian relations director of Cry for Zion, said: “It is the most Jewish site in the entire country.”
  • Rabbi Chaim Amsalem exclaimed: “The time to build the Temple is when the entire world wants it and that time is very close indeed.”
  • Mordechai Persoff, a Rabbi and the head of the Mikdash Educational Center, said: “This is our Temple Mount, it belongs to us. We are not going to go up as visitors. We just have to get a small push to remind us it is time to build the real house in Jerusalem, and it is possible.”
  • Pastor Mondo Gonzales puts it this way: “The current refrain spoken in the land of Israel has moved beyond the typical expression to, ‘Next year in Jerusalem, the rebuilt’.”

Just a final coincidence, no doubt . . . !

Significance of the Third Temple
Zechariah 13:8 –“In the whole land, declares Yahweh, two thirds shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left alive.”
Many Jews look forward to the Third Temple as being a condition for the arrival of Mashiach Ben David. The Third Temple will be built, but unfortunately, this temple will not be a temple for their messiah, Yeshua, but will be the temple that will be desecrated by the Antichrist at the mid-point of the Tribulation Period. It will be the temple in which the Antichrist will erect the abomination of desolation and thereafter murder two thirds of all living Jews. Triple Yikes. . . !

The “coincidences” are interesting to say the least. Donald Trump may be Yahweh’s instrument to fund and/or empower the Israeli’s to defeat their surrounding enemies and to make it possible for the Temple’s foundation to be rebuilt, both conditions that must be accomplished according to scripture. What if all the “coincidences” above are more than just wishful thinking? Could 2019 be the year that Yahweh uses Donald Trump to begin or even fully achieve the restoration of Israel’s Third Temple before the coming seven years of the tribulation period? Time will tell – we do NOT set dates.

Final Thought
Prophecy as foretold by the Hebrew prophets continues to unfold in an escalating pattern. The stage is nearly completely set. The great and terrible Day of Yahweh, Joseph’s Trouble, hastens forth and will not delay. Time is short – Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
