Isaiah 56:8

8 Thus sayeth the LORD God which gathereth together the scattered of Israel: I will bring yet another congregation to him.

Daniel 11:31

31 He shall set mighty men to unhallow the Sanctuary of strength, and to put down the daily offering, and to set up the abominable desolation.

1 Corinthians 3:16

16 Are ye not aware that ye are the temple of God, and how that the spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Isaiah 10:1-34

1 Woe be unto you that make unrighteous laws, and devise things, which be too hard for to keep: 2 wherethrough the poor are oppressed on every side, and the innocents of my people are therewith robbed of judgment: that widows may be your prey, and that ye may rob the fatherless. 3 What will ye do in time of the visitation and destruction, that shall come from far? To whom will ye run for help? Or to whom will ye give your honour, that he may keep it? 4 That ye come not among the prisoners, or lie among the dead? After all this shall not the wrath of the LORD cease, but yet shall his hand be stretched out still. 5 Woe be also unto Assyria, which is a staff of my wrath, in whose hand is the rod of my punishment. 6 For I shall send him among those hypocritical people, among the people that have deserved my disfavour shall I send him: that he may utterly rob them, spoil them, and tread them down like the mire in the street. 7 Howbeit, his meaning is not so, neither thinketh his heart of this fashion. But he imagineth only, how he may overthrow and destroy much people, 8 for he sayeth, "Are not my princes all kings? 9 Is not Calno as easy to win as Carchemish? Is it harder to conquer Hamath than Arpad? Or is it lighter to overcome Damascus than Samaria?" 10 As who say, "I were able to win the kingdom of the Idolaters and their gods, but not Jerusalem and Samaria. 11 Shall I not do unto Jerusalem and their Images, as I did unto Samaria and their Images?" 12 Wherefore the LORD sayeth: As soon as I have performed my whole work upon the hill of Zion and Jerusalem, then will I also visit the noble and stout king of Assyria, with his wisdom and pride." 13 For he standeth thus in his own conceit: "This do I, through the power of my own hand, and through my wisdom: For I am wise, I am he that removes the lands of the people, I rob their princes: and like one of the worthies I drive them from their high seats. 14 My hand hath found out the Hosts of the people, as it were a nest. And like as eggs, that were laid here and there, are gathered together: So do I gather all countries. And there is no man, that dare be so bold as to touch a feather, that dare open his mouth, or once whisper." 15 But doth the axe boost itself, against him that heweth therewith? Or doth the saw make any bragging, against him that ruleth it? That were even like as if the rod did exalt itself against him that beareth it: or as though the staff should magnify itself, as who say it were not wood. 16 Therefore shall the LORD of Hosts send him poverty in his riches, and burn up his power, as it were with a fire. 17 But the light of Israel shall be that fire, and his Sanctuary shall be the flame, and it shall kindle, and burn up his thorns and briers in one day. 18 Yea, all the glory of his woods and fields shall be consumed with body and soul. As for himself, he shall be as one chased away. 19 The trees also of his field shall be of such a number that a child may tell them. 20 After that day shall the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped out of the house of Jacob, seek no more comfort at him that smote them, but shall comfort themselves with faithfulness and truth in the LORD, the holy one of Israel. 21 The remnant, yea and the Posterity of Jacob, shall convert unto God the mighty one. 22 For though thy people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, yet shall but the remnant of them only convert unto him. Perfect is the judgment of him that floweth in righteousness, 23 and therefore the LORD of Hosts shall perfectly fulfill the thing, that he hath determined in the midst of the whole world. 24 Therefore thus sayeth the LORD God of Hosts, "Thou my people, that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid for the king of the Assyrians: He shall wag his staff at thee, yea and beat thee with the rod, as the Egyptians did sometimes: 25 But soon after shall my wrath and mine indignation be fulfilled against their blasphemies. 26 Moreover, the LORD of Hosts shall prepare a scourge for him, like as was the punishment of Midian upon the mount of Oreb. And he shall lift up his rod over the sea, as he did sometimes over the Egyptians. 27 Then shall his burden be taken from thy shoulders, and his yoke from thy neck, yea the same yoke shall be corrupt for very fatness." 28 He shall come to Aiath, and go through toward Migron. But at Michmash shall he muster his Host, 29 and go over the fiord. Geba shall be their resting place; Ramah shall be afraid; Gibeah of Saul shall flee away. 30 The voice of the noise of thy horses, O daughter of Gallim, shall be heard unto Laish and to Anathoth, which also shall be in trouble. 31 Madmannah shall tremble for fear, but the citizens of Gebim are manly, 32 yet shall he remain at Nob that day. After that, shall he lift up his hand against the mount Zion, against the hill of Jerusalem. 33 But see, the Lord God of Hosts shall take away the proud from thence, with fear. He shall hew down the proud, and fell the high minded. 34 The thorns of the wood shall be rooted out with iron, and Lebanon shall have a mighty fall.

Daniel 9:24-27

24 Seventy weeks are determined over thy people, and over the holy city: that the wickedness may be consumed, that the sin may have an end, that the offense may be reconciled, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, to fulfill the visions and the Prophets, and to anoint the most holy one. 25 Understand this then, and mark it well: That from the time it shall be concluded to go and repair Jerusalem again, unto Christ, the anointed Prince: there shall be seven weeks.Then shall the streets and walls be builded again sixty two weeks, but with hard troublous time. 26 After these sixty two weeks, shall Christ be slain, and they shall have no pleasure in him. Then shall there come a people with the prince, and destroy the city and the Sanctuary: and his end shall come as the water flood. But the desolation shall continue till the end of the battle. 27 He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of the abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation determined shall be poured upon the desolate."

Revelation 11:2

2 but the court which is without the temple cast out, and mete it not: for it is given unto the gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-17

1 We beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in that we shall assemble unto him, 2 that ye be not suddenly moved from your mind, and be not troubled; neither by spirit, neither by words, nor yet by letter, which should seem to come from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means, for the Lord cometh not, except there come a departing first, and that that sinful man be opened, the son of perdition; 4 which is an adversary, and is exalted above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he shall sit as God in the temple of God, and show himself as God. 5 Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth: even that he might be uttered at his time. 7 For the mystery of that iniquity doth he already work, which only looketh, till he be taken out of the way 8 and then shall that wicked be uttered, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the appearance of his coming, 9 even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all lying power, signs, and wonders: 10 and in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might have been saved. 11 And therefore God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies: 12 that all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, beloved of the Lord, for because that God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation, through sanctifying of the spirit; And through believing the truth: 14 whereunto he called you by our gospel, to obtain the glory that cometh of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and keep the ordinances which ye have learned: whether it were by our preaching, or by our epistle. 16 Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts, and establish you in all doctrine and good doing.

John 2:19-21

19 Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will rear it up again." 20 Then said the Jews, "Forty six years was this temple a building: and wilt thou raise it up in three days?" 21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
