The Scriptures speak of a time when Satan (in Antichrist) shall take the Holy City and destroy the Sanctuary (Temple of God) in Jerusalem. Why is this? Why does Satan so covet the Nation of Israel and specifically one area within Jerusalem? This study will attempt to answer these very questions. First, we shall examine the Scriptures to see what Satan will accomplish through his own "holy son," the Antichrist.

Focusing on that Holy City mentioned above and moving past the Antichrist who will destroy it and sit in it's Temple claiming to be a victorious God, and after the Lord Jesus Christ returns to destroy him at Armageddon, we see the future Millennial period of Christ upon earth is set to restore all that was lost in the first age, we see from Revelation 21 a future 'New Jerusalem' and it's Eternal Temple of God "descending" from Heaven above...it will return.
Since the Millennial future is to be a restoration of the dateless past, and because Heaven and earth will be restored in that future Third Age and made perfected as it was in the First, when everything was yet perfect, this would then mean that at some point after Lucifer's Fall and his final casting out of Zion, God took his Heavenly Kingdom and it's Holy Mountain Zion off the face of the earth whereby it ascended to remain only in Heaven, as the earth had become corrupt with Satan's perverted destructions of God's original Creation.
That being done, earth was left to ruin. When Zion was removed, the geographic area still remained on the earth yet after the destructions of the former things, even with the advent of the axis tilt, the area was moved from it's northernmost apex position. Today, Jerusalem's 'Temple Mount' (or Temple Mountain) is that former pinnacle where Mount Zion once stood, where God's 'Holy Mountain' once was.
This truth was well known among the most ancient of world cultures who upon passing this knowledge over time, lost it's original truth and "the (historical) myth" of the World Mountain took it's place. Now here is wisdom, if the Temple was removed from the earth, and the earth still exists, then there is still the geographic area from whence Mount Zion once stood.
Now you know why Jerusalem and moreover the Temple Mount play such a key and pivotal role in end time events for Zion is still the spiritual, physical and literal place of battle where even now, Angels both good and evil wage their ancient war, where they affect their peoples on the earth to do the same, and where the two Morning Stars themselves shall yet meet in one final time at Armageddon.'
Even in Biblical history, Zion (Jerusalem) has often made it's important presence known in very enigmatic ways, that all relate to the war of these two Stars (dual Suns of God). We first see it mentioned as God called out to the Sethite, Abram and his wife Sarai, instructing them to move from their habitation in the land of Chaldean Ur (Sumeria; Iraq: where Sethites settled after Eden), and go to a place prepared for him and his future people (Isra-el).
Once there, Abraham was then called to ascend Mount Moriah (Zion) and in great bitterness of spirit, offer up his Son as a sacrifice unto God whom he loved, the Angel of the Lord withstood him, yet the example was made to show how God Himself would later have to sacrifice His Son not only for Zion, yet for the entire world, and greater was the need for 'restoration of all things.'
God loving us and the world which He created never wanting to destroy it, only the power of Satan over it. In short, the war continues because it is still the battle of the Two Morning Stars (God's Sons), and not God the Father against Satan as most think, yet God is invariably involved in it. Satan needs to destroy the remaining Son of God to get to the Father and be 'called God.' Again, this same Mountain of Zion is shown to have the most important role at the time of King David who is credited for finding Jeru-shalayim (the 'City of Peace'), he having been given the knowledge from God that this is where He once dwelled, where His Temple of peace once eminated throughout the earth and where all the Elohim (Sons of God) came from all parts of the earth to worship Him.
David was given charge to build the first earthly Temple upon Zion, in Jerusalem, yet because of his own sin the work was passed over to his son Solomon (occult: Solar Man). What is still known by Jews today as their 'First Temple' or the Temple of Solomon was made in strict accordance and measurement to the ancient and Heavenly Temple which adorned the pinnacle of first age Zion. There was to be an outer and inner court, the inner Temple itself, and within that was to be made the "Holy of Holies," where God's Holy presence and (spiritual) Throne would be upon the earth once more.
Placed centrally within this most Holy room of the Temple was the Ark of the Covenant, itself being crafted in strict accordance upon which was made the two winged Cherubs (esoteric 22), representative of the Two Morning Stars who 'covered' the Throne of God in the First Age (see also Job 38:7-16, Isaiah 14:12-16, Ezekiel 28:12-16, Revelation 22:16 and Genesis 3:13-16).
Not far from there and not long after, the Lord was crucified at the hands of the Romans under the Pharisean (Cainite) rule and forty years after that, on the exact same date of the First Temple's destruction on Tisha B'Av, was the Second Temple destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD (leading many to think Antichrist will destroy the future Third Temple in Jerusalem on the 9th of the Hebrew month, Av).
Being that Christ remained perfect even after being directly tempted of Satan, and with the final Crucifixtion that broke the long held power of Abraxas (Satan's Angels'; Christ breaking Satan's power at His Return at Armageddon), the Father succesfully carried out the first part of His ancient prophecy made in Genesis 3:15 (which is to restore all things despite Satan's perversion and destruction of the original Creation).
One millennium later after Christ saw the [supposedly 'Christian'] European Crusading knights conquered Jerusalem, the Knights Templar among them. God has His plan and Satan has another, and both revolve around the Morning Star's war over Zion. Jerusalem is also where the Antichrist must come, to destroy. Every perverted abomination that is a child of Cain, every secret society, every evil plan made in some underground place, is bringing Satan closer, every Satanic child of his making and every king of his blood and all those who have placed Lucifer as their own Father-King has worked to make a way for Lucifer alone to be the One Morning Star and King of Zion.
Knowing all this therefore places Jerusalem at the very center of moumental importance in this ongoing and ancient War for it is Zion which is the same place that Lucifer has coveted since the very beginning. It is where God had His Throne and where Lucifer must ascend to if he is ever to win his war against the Christ, ultimately the Father. Zion is directly what Satan was referring to in his third "I Will" (see Isaiah 14:13) stating he will sit upon that Mountain of the (Angelic) Congregation in the 'Sides of the North.'
This enigmatic reference to Zion being located at the 'Sides of the North' tells us many things. From it we see that the First Age earth was built upon a very different axis of rotation than we have today, it suggests that Mount Zion (Jerusalem) was at the furthest and most Northern point of the ancient earth. Then, everything created was yet Holy, Lucifer himself was still the Morning Star and was able to enter Mount Zion by way of the 'Stones of Fire' 'up' to the Holy Temple where God dwelled. It was a time of universal world peace and a time when all the Sons of God were one in unison with the Father (these being Elohim).
Zion was the axis-mundi, the central point, the World Mountain, the one place where Heaven met earth and was geographically and purposely placed furthest north, thereby, closer towards God and Heaven, even at the upward side of the earth facing direct north. [note: what is today the 'Pole Star' which is presently due north in the night sky, literally has the heavens (the stars) still revolving around it, this is best seen in time lapse photography. This northernmost Pole Star (Polaris) is also called "the Nail of Heaven" perfectly denoting which direction God's Heavenly dwelling is in relation to the earth's circumferance. It is in the North, above the earth, existing albeit close in proximity, yet in another dimension unseen to the mortal eye.
Israel being originally placed due north in that first age means earth likely had an axis of 0 degrees meaning not having a tilted axis, being perfect, in which the planet would receive the same illumination from pole to pole at any time during it's rotation around the Sun, yet if the coming Third Age is any indicator (as seen in Revelation 21:23), there may have been no Sun in that First Age at all, only the Two Morning Stars (the Twin Sons) giving Light to the world. The future type of what was, is perfectly seen in the age to come of which the Scripture states: '...And the City had no need of the Sun, neither of the Moon, to shine in it: for the Glory of God (the Father) did lighten it, and the Lamb (Christ) is the Light thereof.'
In the last days of that first age however, when Lucifer fell, he tempted the ancient nations at that time to side with him in revolt toward God in attempt to destroy the very Creator who made them. A great destruction upon earth was the only result and all that they brought upon themselves. Satan was cast with his Angels among the animist races of the earth which led to further corruption and destructions as the latter days of that First Age quickly came to an end. Yet God clearly said in Jeremiah 4 that He would not make a full end, at least not at that time.
The First Earth Age account, as written in Isaiah 14:17, states that Lucifer '...made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof.' From Jeremiah Chapter 4, we see exactly how the Lord countered Satan's destruction with an utter destruction of His own, at the end of which a promise is made not to make a 'full end,' to the earth - that is to say, there will be a Second Age after the First.
Regardless, Satan fell and ruined God's original and perfect Creation, thus bringing about the need not for earth's final destruction, yet earth's complete renewel and a Second Earth Age, our present age where Zion was removed into Heaven, where the earth no longer was a dwelling of God and His Angels, and where even the constellations were (re)formed with the axis of earth altered to follow a 26,000 year processional as well as a 2,160 year zodiacal age which would gives us a sign to when the age of Pisces [Christ] ends and when Aquarius [Antichrist] begins.
Where there was once only dust the moment before stood a Man in 'God's image and eternal likeness' who immediately indwellled of spirit, began to worship God, even the 'Angel of the Lord' (God's Son). This then leads strong evidence that those pre-adamic races who existed before in the First Age were not created after the likeness of God or His Son (or even the Elohim). This would then make those races 'animaton,' or beings with animal-like appearances yet with 'human' or Angelic intelligences. There is one clear example of an Animist that everyone has seen and new research has proved it was created far beyond the original date given as 5,000 BC, meaning it was already extremely ancient by the time the first Pharoahs ruled the land.

Satan knowing well that this Anti-Man (or Anti-Adam) would bring him closer to his ancient goal, the Father's Throne at Mount Zion, and with that his dark path was rekindled and he moved once more to destroy God by breaking his Word and capture His Throne with the aid of his [future] son...yet it was no longer just the Father's Throne, as the Father has given it all to Lucifer's twin, that other Morning Star, God's remaining and Loyal Son.
