From: RED HEIFER BORN - OPENS WAY FOR THIRD TEMPLE 3/16/97 - Sunday Telegraph (London) According to London's Sunday Telegraph of March 16, 1997, a team of rabbinical experts have confirmed the birth of a red heifer.Such an animal is necessary for purification of the temple site according to Numbers 19:2-7.A few, very small, Jewish groups support constructing a Third Temple today, but most Jews oppose this, for a variety of reasons.
This occurs in the middle of the 7 year end-times period.
So if the peace treaty between Israel and the PLO signed on September 13, 1993 was the peace treaty of prophecy, then on February 24, 1997, the abomination of desolation should have occurred in the Temple in Jerusalem.
Arutz Sheva News Service Tuesday, March 18, 1997 / Adar Bet 9, 5757 Our sources: DAILY NEWS FROM ISRAEL - ISSUE 237 - 16th March 1997 See: THE RED HEIFER In the Olivet Discourse of Matthew and Mark , Jesus told the disciples about the end-time events and the abomination of desolation which will take place in the Temple in the middle of the end-times 7 year period.
The abomination of desolation is when the antichrist stands in the holy place of the rebuilt Temple and falsely declares to the world that he is God.

To attempt to tear down and replace these Muslim shrines with a Jewish Temple is impossible in today's political and religious climate.
The very idea of doing so at any point in the future constitutes a seemingly unresolvable problem.
Nonetheless, the idea of rebuilding the Temple somewhere else is difficult for Jews to accept.
