An "age" is not a brief period of time. We could easily be "at the end of the age", and still have years to go ( both of which I personally believe to be the case.)
And though many of you would be tickled to see it, Israel is NOT going to be turned into a parking lot, or destroyed in any manner,whatsoever. This is a FACT that you can bet your life on.
And yes, it's also my understanding that Solomon's Temple is to be rebuilt, and the Israeli's have been taking the steps for that, for many years ( some of them quite involved, and began decades ago), and the money for the rebuilding has also long been raised.
As bizarre as it is, Israel is and will continue to be at the center of the world's attention and loathing, exactly as the bible says it will be in the end times.
