    As for the names of the wicked priests, I seem to recall about them somewhere but I don't have that information off the top of my head.
    So never before was there a person until you mention a ''wicked priest'' who claimed to be God in the Temple of God,and you and other people don't know about it as common knowledge?

    It seems Richard the explaination of a wicked priest showing himself as God is a made up story for people like you to escape from dealing with the fact that the prophecy of the little horn has not yet come.

    The Temple is to be rebuilt by hands,yet is being delayed due to the stubborness of the little horn who is currently changing the foretold events by not participating in the foretold. Pre knowing about the future is a means for the events to be aborted altogether.

    Your comment makes no sense. Everyone knows that there were wicked priests prior to those that brought down the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. Case in point, the priest who ruled at the time of the first "Abomination of Desolation" caused by Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 BC (to which Jesus referred to when he predicted the desolation that would come from the Romans) was very wicked. He is talked about in the Dead Sea Scrolls:
    The Pesher [of Habbakkuk] accuses the Wicked Priest of corruption and oppressing the poor, and generally violating God's law. He profaned the holy city of Jerusalem and its Temple with terrible abominations. ... the Wicked Priest became arrogant in his power, leading him to violate God's laws.
    It seems that your rejection of this common knowledge is based on your desire to invent doctrines about a future re-desolation of a future re-built temple. How is it that you don't understand that the destruction of the Temple in the first century is exactly what Christ predicted???

    You say that there will be yet another Temple built and desolated. Where does the Bible say that? And how could it be true if the Jews are rejecting God? It won't matter if they stack up a pile of rocks and call it a "Temple." If God never calls it "My House" it can't be desolated in the way that Christ predicted.

    The rejection of the fulfillment of Christ's prophecies implies he was a false prophet. He was perfectly clear and unambiguous. The prophecy of the destruction of the Temple would be fulfilled in the first century, during the lifetime of the generation to whom he spoke. Nothing in the Bible is stated with more clarity.

    The Temples were built and destroyed three times..... And the wicked generation has not passed away.

    That wicked generation most definitely passed away. Your interpretation of "this generation" destroys the meaning of the text and denies the fulfillment of Christ's prophecy. He was perfectly clear that he was talking about the destruction of the Temple that was standing at the time he spoke. He was perfectly clear that his prediction would be fulfilled during the lifetime of those to whom he spoke when he referred to them as "this generation." History confirms his prophecy was fulfilled in 70 AD. To deny these facts is to deny the most clear and unambiguous words in the Bible and transforms it into an utterly meaningless book and opens it to the flood of error known as "Futurist eschatology" which has a perfect record of 100% error concerning the "end times." But hey, if this is what floats your boat, then who am I to argue?
