Evangelist Daniel John Lee

And to the angel of the congregation in Philadelphia write -- These things says He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the Key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens.  I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name . . ."


Article Number 1: The False and True Temples


My name is Daniel John Lee, a blood-washed servant of YahShua ha Maschiach. I love His Torah, and I find the washing of His Blood atonement the ONLY thing that can make me worthy to walk in the good works that He ordained me to walk in from the beginning of time.


But what I am going to share in this article is of SUCH CRITICAL IMPORTANCE -- because this is a warning about the ABSOLUTE NEED to use the ENTIRETY of Yah’s Word (not just isolated chapters and verses) to recognize evil and stay away from it!


The message is REPENTANCE. And only through complete and TOTAL compliance to YahShua, obeying His Word, washed in His Blood, can you remain undefiled in these coming years of intense tribulation.


Remember the Angel that led the Children of Israel through the wilderness.


Exodus 23:20-21: “Behold, I send an Angel before you, to keep you in the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Beware of this Angel, and obey His Voice, provoke Him not! For He will NOT pardon your transgressions: for My Name is in Him.


“But if you shalt indeed obey His Voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto your enemies, and an adversary unto your adversaries!”


We are entering a season in which YHVH will NOT pardon your transgressions -- you must completely and totally follow His Spirit of Truth! And this FIRST of THREE articles will lay the groundwork for what MUST be heeded at all costs.


According to numerous passages in the Book of Daniel and Revelation, there WILL be a Temple rebuilt in modern day Jerusalem. In Daniel 8:13-14 we read: “Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, ‘How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?’ And he said unto me, ‘Unto 2300 days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.”


We also read just prior to those verses that an anti-christ figure will magnify himself, even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice will be taken away and the place of the sanctuary cast down. This anti-christ figure is given a mighty host against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression.


Again, in the following chapter, we read “and in the midst of the week, he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate . . .”


A couple chapters later, in Daniel 11, we read in vs 31: “And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.”


YahShua Himself makes reference to that passage, warning individuals to FLEE EAST when this abomination of desolation goes down.


Clearly we can see from these passages, that a Temple will exist in modern day Jerusalem which will be completely and utterly defiled by the anti-Messiah.


However, I want to go one step further. The Temple will be COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY APOSTATE from its INCEPTION to its demise. I am going to repeat this -- the Temple System and everything associated with the Temple will be COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY APOSTATE from day one -- LONG BEFORE the anti-christ ever causes the sacrifices to cease and causes the abomination of desolation.


Solomon’s Temple and Zerubbabel’s Temple


I want you to remember how the first two Temples were built.


David had yearned and desired to create a house for YHVH, but YHVH told him an emphatic no! David had bloodied his hands through too many battles, and Yah did not want a man of war to erect the structure. So while David gathered all the materials, burning with a desire to rebuild the Temple, he waited. And he died. It was not until Solomon, through a miraculous series of events becoming King over all Israel, that the Temple construction finally went forward.


Zerubbabel’s Temple could NOT be built until the Jewish people had, according to the prophecy in Jeremiah, spent exactly 70 years in Babylonian exile. It was only AFTER this exile was complete and the Jews had returned to the land, that YHVH gave the clear commandment to rebuild the Temple.


But the Temple that will be constructed in modern day Israel will be under the jurisdiction of a completely anti-Messiah Sanhedrin that denies the blood of YahShua, in conjunction with a completely anti-Messiah Jewish secular government that denies the blood of YahShua, in conjunction with a completely anti-Messiah United Nations that denies the blood of YahShua. This Temple will be built NOT because men filled with the Holy Spirit chose to follow YHVH -- this Temple will be built because men and women who deny YahShua wish to bring back the worship of “Ha Shem” (in the case of the religious Jews) and to provide a center of peace and unity for the entire world (in the case of the Luciferian United Nations).


Chaim Richman, Yisrael Ariel and Mordechai Prinze of the The Temple Institute leave no question that they absolutely and totally reject YahShua. These are not men filled with the Holy Spirit. These are men who worship Rabbinic-Talmudic tradition and do NOT obey the Torah. And these are the men who have spent the last 23 years, since 1987, carefully creating the implements for the Temple and Temple Worship system. I do believe that in the 24th year, 2011, that this Temple will be up and running. I could be wrong on this, but I think it is a strong possibility. 24 is the number for apostolic governmental authority.


Why are all these men and women from all these various organizations going to be able to rebuild the Temple? Because of what Apostle Shaul penned in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12:


“And for this cause YHVH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”


This Temple will be commissioned by people who do not have the Ruach, built by people who do not have the Ruach and run by people who do not have the Ruach.


The Messianic/Hebrew Roots Temple Deception


Unfortunately there is a rising groundswell within the Messianic/Hebrew Roots movements and even amongst Christian Zionists to support this Temple! Christians and Messianics are called upon to donate their money in building this future Temple. Teachers within the Messianic movement talk about how wonderful it will be when the daily sacrifices begin.


Oh really? The daily sacrifices will be wonderful?


Then someone PLEASE explain to me Malachi 3:2-4


“But who may abide the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap:


“And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto YHVH an offering in righteousness.


“THEN shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto YHVH, as in the days of old, and as in former years.”


It is SUPREMELY CLEAR from this passage in Malachi that the animal sacrifices WILL NOT be acceptable or pleasing to YHVH until AFTER YAHSHUA RETURNS and has already PURGED the Levitical Priesthood.


I could not understand why, over the past year, more and more Messianics have been trying to either undermine or completely throw out Apostle Shaul’s writings. Monte Judah has gone so far as to completely reject the Book of Hebrews. But then things began to make sense. Apostle Shaul goes to great lengths in Hebrews 7 to prove from Torah that the Melchisedec Priesthood is FAR SUPERIOR to the Levitical Priesthood. Apostle Shaul builds Hebrews 7 directly from the Tanakh -- in fact he quotes Psalm 110:4 in Hebrews 7:17!


Messiah YahShua, who is of the Melchisedec Priesthoood, is the ONLY one qualified to restore and put back into place the Levitical Priesthood, just as Malachi 3 states! But because Monte Judah and many other anti-Paul Messianics wish to elevate the Levites ABOVE the order of Melchisedec, they will whole heartedly embrace this new Temple.


The Naked Truth


People have the misconception that a Temple will be rebuilt and then, 3.5 years before the Messiah returns, a very obvious abomination of desolation will take place that will totally change the Temple.


Not so.


Remember, when we read the Bible, we are seeing things from YHVH’s perspective, which clearly shows deeply important spiritual events.


But what will we humans actually see?


We will behold a beautifully glorious Temple, rebuilt and beloved by both the secular humanist world (for the same reason they love magnificent Buddhist statues) and by the religious world (by Jews because it allows them to exalt more of their Talmudic form of Torah and by Christians because it is a fulfillment of prophecy). The whole world will flock from millions of miles away just to catch a glimpse of this awesome and incredible Temple. White clothed “Levites” will glow with “glory” as they officiate Temple worship. Messianic and Hebrew Roots people will be salivating over themselves to keep the Hebrew Feasts at this Temple.


And the High Priest of this Temple will become more and more popular. Signs and wonders will begin to manifest and grow right in the heart of this Temple. People will be healed and FILLED with a powerful anointing.


And eventually, as this Temple becomes more and more attractive to the masses all across the world, an even more incredible “baptism of fire” will occur when, unknown to 99% of the population, Satan has been cast out of Heaven and, along with his satanic hordes, now possesses those who run and officiate the Temple. It will not look like an abomination of desolation at all. It will look glorious, beautiful, charismatic and wonderful.


In fact, by the time the abomination of desolation actually occurs, most people who have become enraptured with this Temple will have long since believed we have entered into the glorious millennium of “The Christ” or a “New Age of Enlightenment.”


I cry out a warning that MUST be heeded. HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS COMING TEMPLE. Do not send your money to have this Third Temple rebuilt. Do not visit this Temple. Do not, in any way, participate with this Temple at all! If you do, you WILL -- I repeat -- you WILL serve the Anti-Christ. I don’t care how much Truth you think you have. This will be a delusion, starting VERY SOON, that will be too powerful to break should you disregard this article and succumb to the spell of the soon rising popularity of this Temple.


Remember, just as YHVH destroyed the 1st Temple using the Babylonian armies, and destroyed the 2nd (Zerubbabel’s) Temple using the Roman armies, so too He will DESTROY this 3rd Temple. In both of the previous Temples, they were destroyed due to the idolatry and corruption of the priesthood, which is exactly why the anti-Messiah will be allowed to desecrate this Temple.


The TRUE Temple


Messiah YahShua will rule and reign for a 1000 years from His Holy Temple in Jerusalem. But how will this TRUE Temple be built?


Zechariah 6:12-13 shows us VERY clearly:


“And speak unto him, saying, ‘Thus saith YHVH Savuot, saying Behold the Man whose name is THE BRANCH; and He shall grow up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of YHVH.


“Even He shall build the Temple of YHVH; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon His Throne; and He shall be a priest upon His Throne: and the counsel of shalom shall be between them both.”


It is YahShua and YahShua ALONE who will rebuild the true Temple that will stand for 1000 years on planet earth!


But even this verse will be used by the devilish people who rebuild the False Temple, for scripture warns us that eventually the anti-christ will sit in the False Temple, exalting himself above YHVH, but to those who are deceived, they will believe Zechariah 6:12-13 is being fulfilled right before there eyes -- YEARS BEFORE IT ACTUALLY HAPPENS WITH YAHSHUA.


The final chapters of Ezekiel, Zechariah 14, Malachi 3, Revelation 20 and numerous other passages make it very clear that Messiah YahShua will rule and reign from a newly rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem, Israel. Animal sacrifices will be offered up continually on the altars of this Temple for 1000 years. All nations will be commanded to go up to the Temple in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles every single year or they will receive no rain.


But in order for that TRUE Temple to exist -- Messiah YahShua must FIRST return with power and glory from the sky, He must FIRST resurrect all saints (I Thess 4), He must FIRST purge the Levites (which will happen when all saints are resurrected), He must FIRST touch down on Mount Olives and rebuild the Temple Himself.


The timing, sequence of events and truth about the First Resurrection which occurs on the 7th Trumpet will be the subject of the 2nd article in this 3 part series. The 2nd article is called: Exalting the True Ephraim/Judah Regathering. Please read that article next, as it will contain absolutely CRUCIAL information to avoid the deep deception which is on the verge of sweeping the planet.
