    As the memory of the holotcaust dims in history, Israel needs to have more people with skin in the game that support the continued existance of the Jewish State. So what about 70 million Evangelical Christians and 16 million Mormons? Both these groups have an emotional investment in the building of the third temple in Israel. But the temple mount is such that it doesn't seem a viable place. But what if the Lord who knows the end form the Beginning had already prepared a place for the Third Temple? If you re-interpret the propheicies about the location of the third temple in Jerusalem to the Land of jerusalem then another site which is relaltively pristine surfaces. That is, the site where Joshua first sacrificed to the Lord when the Children of Israel entered into the Holy Land. That is, why not build the third temple on top of Mt. Ebal and invite Evangelical Christians and Mormons to assist with donations and labor to build the temple with the provision that they can worship in the first court or Court of the Gentiles. By building the third temple and invitien Evangelical Christians and Mormons to particiipate, you are now laying the groundwork for millions to have Skin in the Game and support the continued existance of Israel. Think about it.
