Lesson 3 True Purpose of Dome on the Rock


I've tried to keep this short so it is a fast read.


It is fact, that Islam denies:

1. The denial that Jesus was (and is) the Christ/Messiah/Savior  

2. The denial that Jesus was (and is) divine and fully human at the same time, God in flesh  

3. The denial that Jesus was (and is) the Son of God and God is His Father, both equal.

It is also fact that Islam's end-time beliefs absolutely mirror those of Christianity.

Now, I want to look at the last two points, on our 6 points of belief in selecting a group or individual that displays the true spirit of antichrist. Actually, I made a mistake, the last half of point 5 is actually point 6. I'm sorry for the confusion.


5. This antichrist deity is exalted above all worshipped deities, (Point 6 begins here) he will have his throne on the Holy Temple Mount as if he were god of the universe.


As to point 5: This antichrist deity is exalted above all worshipped deities.


I find it interesting that Islam on the one hand claims to the West: Allah is The God of the Bible; therefore, Jews, Christians, and Muslims all worship the same God! We are now called the "Three Great Monotheistic Religions."


There was even a TV special on CNN which they still run every so often. The special attempts to show the similarities between the three groups when nothing could be farther from the truth


So, Allah is supposedly the same person as Yahweh; yet, no Muslim is allowed to refer to Allah by any other name except Allah. But, Allah is not a name for God anywhere in the Bible. Now, here in the West, Muslims expect people here to refer to God as Allah as an act of good will! Let everyone call God Allah!! That is what some pastors and legislators were saying! After all, it would promote such good will! Of course, beyond that you realize that if you say anything not considered worship or honorable about Allah or Mohammed, you are killed if at all possible or as soon as possible. And if they can't get you, they will kill a group of people or children in your name.  


This antichrist deity is exalted above all worshipped deities.  This too is an already established fact in practice in Islam, and they defend it to the death!! While other religions could be said to exalt their deity above all others, how many of them defend that to the death of those who may oppose?  Islam is most unique in how it fulfills the 6 points of "what antichrists believe."


The corrected point 6: He will have his throne on the Holy Temple Mount as if he were god of the universe.

Understand:  Temple Mount is God's (Yahweh's) Temple on earth, whether there is a building for Him or not. The "Foundation Stone" on which the "Ark of the Covenant" sat is still on Temple Mount. That is "God's Seat" or "Throne on earth".  Having no walls on the Mount does not change that!  


Important fact: This event, (antichrist's throne on Temple Mount) is referred to as: "abomination of desolation" by Jesus in Matthew 24, the famous end-times chapter.

Abomination = antichrist claiming to be God, sitting on God's seat! Desecrating the Holy.  

Desolation = devastation or ruin, no sacrifices can be given to Him on a desecrated alter

and God's supernatural presence on His seat is gone! Jews have also lost their access to God's Holy Temple Mount their place of worship because it is defiled. Leaving the Jew feeling separated from God. For the Jew, without Jesus, God lives in a physical place, not in their hearts, and they have been separated from that physical place.


This sign points us to two things!  

    1st thing pointed to = how to recognize antichrist! = The one who fulfills antichrist theology, yet is worshiped as god of universe and is also perched on Temple Mount where it does not belong because that is Yahweh God's seat. 

    2nd thing pointed to = we are in the end times!  = Jesus included this sign in Matthew 24, as a sign that the end of the world (as we have always know it) is near. 


All Christianity is waiting for a temple to be built on Temple Mount and for a man to stand in this temple and claim to be God. This was partly fulfilled roughly 200 years before Jesus mentioned this sign. His name was Antiochus IV Epiphanies, the King of Syria. He attacked and plundered Jerusalem,  then sacrificed a pig to Zeus on the sacred altar. Thereafter, Antiochus prohibited the Jewish sacrifices in the temple for a period of approximately 3 1/2 years. This man is an example or type of "The Antichrist."


Interesting, this type or example of Antichrist did not come from Europe, he was king of Syria and he was a Greek! Remember this man for another lesson!! 


It looks like a fulfillment of Daniel's "little Horn antichrist" and the "Abomination of Desolation"  prophecy except:

1. Antiochus did not ascend among 10 leaders and take out 3 to do so, (Daniel)

2. He was not taken down by the "Ancient of Days" Who set up His eternal kingdom, (Daniel)

3. When Jesus spoke of Daniel's "Abomination of Desolation" in Matthew 24, (which Antiochus did),  Jesus was not giving a HISTORY lesson to his disciples, He was telling them of FUTURE events. That means, this event or something similar will happen again


Like I said, everyone is waiting for a Jewish Temple to be built, sacrifices to begin again so that Antichrist, Little Horn can sit in the Temple, on God's seat and stop the Jewish sacrifices. Don't get me wrong, this may well happen, just as it did under Antiochus IV Epiphanies or it might not play out exactly the same way. I say that because there is already an "antichrist" structure, in-fact a few "antichrist" structures on Temple Mount which was not the case with Antiochus, things have already changed in how the fulfillment of this prophecy may play out this final time.


The main component of this prophecy, point 6, indicates that The Antichrist will rule his empire from his new capital, Jerusalem and his throne will be on Temple Mount.  If there is a Jewish Temple he will claim it for himself and put his throne there, and if the Temple has re-instituted sacrifices, he will stop themWhat we don't have at this point, that is vital to this prophecy is "The Man Antichrist" ruling from Temple Mount.    


In other words = Antichrist on God's seat, desecrating the Holy place, prohibiting Jews access to God on Temple Mount! That is "abomination of desolation." You know what, I think I've seen that, recently! I believe we are almost there, we only lack their Man, "the Mahdi", their Caliph who will rule their empire!! At that point, the Caliphate will be re-born in Islam after having been "put down" since the early 1920's.  Sounds like a head wound that is healed! The head being an empire, which they are. More on that in a later lesson.


Now you know why Israel's surrounding Muslims all want Jerusalem as their capital, and why Israel is determined to hang on to it.


NOW, with all that in mind, let's look at Temple Mount today, in line with this point 6: (he will have his throne on the Holy Temple Mount as if he were god of the universe) that we are considering.


The Dome of the Rock now sits on Temple Mount.

Arabic inscriptions taken from the Qur’an adorn the structure, both inside and outside. The inscriptions on the inner walls are (Don’t skip this part—these inscriptions are critical!): 

… There is no god but Allah. He is One. He has no associate.

… The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a Messenger of Allah,

… say not ‘Three’-Cease! (it is) better for you!

… Allah is only One God.

… Far be it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son.

… The Messiah will never scorn to be a servant unto Allah,

… Oh Allah, bless … your servant Jesus son of Mary.

… Such was Jesus, son of Mary, (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.

… It befitteth not (the Majesty of) Allah that He should take unto Himself a son.

… Glory be to Him! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

The Arabic script on the outside walls is more of the same.


I want you to consider the premise that inscriptions put on the walls of a house of worship generally say one of two things:

1. those things MOST IMPORTANT to the WORSHIPPERS  

2. those things that they want the VISITORS to know.

Since these things are on the outside as well as the inside, I surmise that both 1 and 2 apply.  

These inscriptions on the inner and outer walls are not so much about Muhammad and some midnight trip to Heaven as they are about Islam’s declaration of their god's name, Allah and who Allah declares that Jesus Christ is not. Allah declares for all the world to see that Jesus is not the Son of God, Emanuel - God come in the flesh to live among us, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of those who accept His sacrifice.  

To me, those inscriptions declare to all who look on the outside of The Dome as well as to all who enter, that Jesus is not who the Bible says He is and that makes Allah antichrist by all he proclaims.  

What are we looking for on Temple Mount: he will have his throne on the Holy Temple Mount as if he were god of the universe. Of course, he will rule from there.

I firmly believe that the Dome is his seat already sitting on the most holiest place, just waiting for him to sit there and claim power. During the last half of the last 7 years, exactly 3 years before Jesus returns, Antichrist will rule his empire, from Jerusalem, from Temple Mount.  

2 Thessalonians 2:3 says:  Let no one in any way deceive you, for ..... the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god .... so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.

Remember I said this above:

Understand:  Temple Mount is God's (Yahweh's) Temple on earth, whether there is a building for Him or not. The "Foundation Stone" on which the "Ark of the Covenant" sat is still on Temple Mount. That is "God's Seat" or "Throne on earth".  Having no walls on the Mount does not change that!  


Islam's Allah, has his seat on God's Temple displaying himself as being God! That golden Dome, sitting where it should not be is the largest thing on Display in Jerusalem and is world renown.
