2nd Temple Destruction & Exile

The post - Bible era begins here - We know these things that follow from recorded history and Bible prophecy, fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled, after the writing of the Bible.

Time-That-Was of the 2nd Temple Destruction & Exile (70 AD)

(By the Romans)***"Some of His disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones...But Jesus said, 'As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down' (Luke 21:5-6)."***     This was the time of the fulfillment of the Lord's prophecy, almost 40 years after He had said it.

Very Word***Some of the Herodian stones of the 2nd Temple, stones that Jesus may have touched, may be seen today (almost 2000 years later) in piles at the foot of the Western Wall where the Romans threw them off of the Temple Mount. Others were probably hauled off over the centuries for building other structures. Archeology proves that the Bible we have is the Very Word of God!*** [Sites of Holy City/TEMPLE MT./Southern Steps Archeological Slide-Show]

Time-That-Was of Modern History***"[Yeshua/Jesus said] They [the Jews] will fall by the sword & will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. JERUSALEM WILL BE TRAMPLED ON BY THE GENTILES until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (Luke 21:22)."***   In context, Jesus was prophesying the Roman exile of 70 AD unto His return to end the Gentile domination of Jerusalem, but "the times of the Gentiles" actually started years before He spoke this with the Babylonian occupation, followed by the Persians, then the Greeks, and after that, the Roman occupation.   Even to this day, there has been some Gentile entity trampling Jerusalem such as Byzantines, Crusaders, and Ottoman Turks. Although there have been periods when the Israelites regained control, those periods have been short and have not lasted. Currently, the top of the Temple Mt. was regained by the Jews in the Six-Day War of 1967, but that only lasted three days. Because of political pressure, control was turned back over to Muslims; Jews and Christians are not allowed to pray on the Temple Mt. The prophets have predicted the end-time trampling to be by the antichrist, the "Abomination of Desolation", in the final three and one half years of the Tribulation. Then all nations will come to join the antichrist to trample Jerusalem and make war with Israel, but the final “trampling” will be by a Jew, the Messiah Yeshua, in the winepress of the wrath of the Lord.               The excuse that the "Christian" nations and even Islamic nations have used and still use for their replacement theology and antisemitism is:  ***(LD) Jeremiah 50:6-7 NIV "My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds have led them astray and caused them to roam on the mountains. They wandered over mountain and hill and forgot their own resting place. Whoever found them devoured them; their enemies said, 'We are not guilty, for they sinned against the LORD, their true pasture, the LORD, the hope of their fathers'."***
