Q. I was wondering about the mosques that are sitting on the Temple Mount. When the Lord comes back, what will be done with them? It seems to me that He would do to them what was done to the Temple. Your thoughts?
A. If you put Ezekiel 47:1-12 and Zechariah 14:1-11 together you can see that on the day of the Lord’s return a massive earthquake will split the Mt. of Olives in two allowing water from the Mediterranean to run to the Dead Sea after being mixed with water that flows from under the south side of the Temple.
This tells us two things. First, the next Temple will be built north of the Current Temple Mount, and second, the current Temple mount, including the al Aksa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, will wind up at the bottom of the new river.
In Rev. 22:1 this river is called the River of the Water of Life because it brings life to the Dead Sea and because the trees that line it have leaves with healing power.
