There is so much activity going on around preparation for the Temple; it seems to be gaining momentum even as the Temple Mount dispute remains the final obstacle. Think about it. DNA tests to see who qualifies to be a Levitical priest. Garments made. Utensils made. Architectural plans drawn up. Priest school established. Spotless red heifer pursued. Still, I cannot help but wonder if we will be gone before it gets built, as I tend to believe it could very well be a major part of the Daniel 9:27 covenant that is confirmed. I also have thought that the Antichrist-defiled tribulation Temple will not end up being the millennial temple for Yeshua. Is there any scripture to support that idea, or is that just me?

Somewhere we have a thread about it. The Temple Institute concedes that the temple they intend to build is not, and can not match the dimensions of Ezekiel's temple. So they are trying to make it similar to the 2nd Temple.
The dimensions of Ezekiel's Temple would not fit in all of Jerusalem today-- it will have to wait until the Lord flattens the ground.
I John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
A lot of people make a big deal out of the fact that the Temple Mount might not be the location of the Temple. It could just be Fort Antonia.
That said, I still fully expect the Third Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. The next fully God-ordained Temple is Ezekiel's Temple, which is huge and basically will only fit in Jerusalem once the current city is completely gone.
The Third Temple is an act of defiance in a way because it is a rejection of the finished work of Christ and the a/c will use it as his throne.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
It has always been so fascinating to me that there are always 75 days from Yom Kippur to the first day of Hanukkah (Tishri 10 to Kislev 25). I believe the Lord will split the Mount of Olives on a Yom Kippur and 75 days later (1260+30+45=1335), He will dedicate the Millennial Temple spoken of by Ezekiel. Hannukah, although not listed as one of the Lord's seven feasts, has always been associated with the re-dedication of the Temple. Too perfect of a fit, IMHO.

EnochWalked: watch.tbn.org/videos/hd-ibeota2031 I haven't watched that video ("The Red Heifer and the Third Temple") but I note its focus on some precise timing: "Israel will be able to perform this sacrifice for the first time in on August 29; 2020."

EnochWalked: "The bill, which is set to go to a preliminary vote on Wednesday, would give the government until mid-December to approve the spending plan." After the US elections, Trump may feel freed to implement the Deal (whether he wins or loses). Might boost Likud.

EnochWalked: thebulwark.com/belarus-is-about-to-explode/ " Belarus Is About to Explode. Following a rigged election, the citizens are revolting, and the country’s strongman is cracking down." Alarmist headline, but interesting details, e.g. Chinese "Dragon".
