Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 6

It is interesting if we consider history since the time of Jesus. There has been a growing number of people who claim to be “Jesus” or “the Christ.” Whether they actually make that claim or someone else points to them all comes down to the same thing. Currently, there are at least three well-known individuals who all claim to be Jesus and who are alive right now. One is in the Philippines, one is in Australia, and one is in Europe.

It is also very important to understand that according to rabbinic sources, there are only two ages: this age in which we currently live and the coming age when Messiah will reign. When this current age ends, it will do so because the Messiah will return and start the new age.

School To Prepare For The Rebuilt Temple

The school will include an exact replica of the Temple. The latest addition to the replica was the area in which priests offered wine and water libations. The water offering was traditionally given on the Sukkot holiday, which was celebrated last week.
