A Challenge To Pastors, Teachers, Preachers, Prophets, And Exegetes: What Is The Most Holy Place That The Anti – Christ Will Defile
Posted by Job on October 21, 2008
The issue is that we presume that the holy place will be a rebuilt Jewish temple. But how can this be if Judaism is a dead religion because it denies Jesus Christ? How can that which denies Jesus Christ be holy? This fact explains why pretribulation rapture premillennial dispensationalism has to be dual covenant. In order for the Jewish temple to be holy, Judaism has to be holy. (In order for it to be most holy, does it have to be holier than Christianity?) At the very least, Christians have to participate and support in it in order to lend some Jesus Christ to it by politically supporting Israel, raising money, breeding red heifers, etc.
My position is that no Jewish temple, even if Christians are intimately involved in constructing, dedicating, and serving in it, can be holy. So then, what is the holy place that the anti – Christ will enter into, declare himself as god, and defile? More to the point, what does the new covenant declare to be holy? Consider the book of Hebrews to begin the answer. I must say that I myself am stumped on this issue (having been raised in pretribulation rapture premillennial dispensationalism) and have no alternatives at this time. That is, unless said holy place will be the throne of Saint Peter in the Roman Catholic Vatican, which of course to me is unthinkable.
