Israel's Deal With
The Antichrist and the
Temple Rebuilt

Hagee believes that Israel will sign a seven year peace treaty with the Antichrist using the verse, "he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall make sacrifice and offering cease" (Daniel 9:27). The beginning of the seven year treaty is the start of the seven years of tribulation. After three and a half years Hagee believes the AntiChrist will break the the seven year treaty by stopping the temple sacrifices and offerings. Hagee says that the Antichrist will allow the Jewish people to rebuild the Jerusalem temple and tear down the Dome of the Rock (3rd most holiest place for Muslims) since the Bible states that "he (AntiChrist) takes his seat in the Temple of God, declaring himself to be God" (2 Thess. 2:4). Therefore it is assumed from this passage that the Jerusalem Temple must be rebuilt in order for the Antichrist to take his seat in the Temple of God.

Here Hagee makes several assumptions that are not explicitly stated in scripture. Hagee assumes the Jerusalem Temple must be rebuilt on the fact if it is known that the Antichrist will stop sacrifices and offerings at the mid-point of the Tribulation, then it is assumed that the Jewish sacrifices must had to be started. Also Hagee believes that the Antichrist will take over the temple, thus implying that the temple must be rebuilt. And Hagee believes that the Dome of the Rock must be torn down so that the Temple can be rebuilt.

One can see the cleaver use of scripture that Hagee employs to create a series of assumptions that he passes off as fact. He does not take into account the historical circumstances in which certain verses were written for.
