The Temple Of Jerusalem: Past, Present, And Future
Ps 19:1(Note) teaches that the glory of the LORD has been present since the beginning of time as seen in His creation. In contrast the glory summarized in this table refers to the specific manifestations of His glory, past, present and future. Did Adam & Eve see the glory of God? (Ge 3:8)
The Temple of Jerusalem: Past, Present, and Future
It follows then that the glory of the LORD has always existed. These notes will not address so much that aspect of God's glory (seen in creation, etc) but will overview the specific manifestations of His glory throughout history, past, present and future.
This yearning for a world that is not yet healed and the toggling between past, present and future in the Passover celebration will perhaps hold special significance for many grandparents and their families in 2021.
The partial return of the Jews (that is the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, as contrasted with the ten tribes), to Palestine, is a matter of present day history; but they will yet (and it may be soon), return in greater numbers from all parts of the earth, through which they have for centuries been scattered. But this is not to be confused with their future gathering by the call of God as described in Isa. 11:10-16; Jer. 23:3-8; 30:3-11, 18; Ezek. 20:33-42). They will at first have a national existence, and probably the recognition and protection of the great Powers of Europe, rebuild the temple (Rev. 11:1), and their leaders who will evidently be still blinded in unbelief will receive the false Messiah, the Antichrist, and enter into a seven years' covenant with him (Dan. 9:27). For a time he will be very liberal; very likely in order to get them fully under his influence, but in the middle of the week he breaks the covenant with them (Isa. 28:14), and demands that Divine worship be given to Him (2 Thess. 2:4). Some who have the fear of God in them will refuse. Then follows the Great Tribulation. There will be a faithful remnant in the midst of Israel who will refuse to worship the Beast, and for this they will have to suffer, and some of them to die. This will be ended by the return of Christ in glory for their deliverance, and for the destruction of their foes. 041b061a72
