There is a great book out there that was just released showing evidence using archeology and scripture that the Jewish Temple was not located on the current “temple mount” but rather south of there in the “City of David”. I was turned on to the book after watching an interview with Chuck Missler where he mentioned coming back from helping a friend out with shooting the documentary. I have linked the book below.
Temple: Amazing New Discoveries that Change Everything About the Location of Solomom’s Temple by Robert Cornuke
It has always bothered me being one that believes that the Bible is inerrant, that the Temple Wall even existed and in such a prominent location. You can’t miss it and it’s not like the Roman soldiers would have either. Christ said every stone would be thrown down and tore up and that is exactly what happened according to eye witnesses. (Yes, there were eye witnesses to the event. Josephus, was there and documented the events and confirmed that the prophecy was fulfilled. And there are others mentioned in the book as well.)
So what is the huge stone wall? It is none other that the Roman Legion X fort that controlled the area and housed their garrison of 10,000 men.
What this discovery means, is the Jewish Third Temple could be started today and completed within a year a half based on projections I have seen. The timing of this is simply amazing and God’s will at work. Judge for yourself…
Pick it up and read through the book, it is very well done and does an amazing job putting the “Indiana Jones” type adventure spin, on some very nice detective work, supported 100% by Gods word (scriptures) and historical documents.
Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!
Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
