    Temple Institute working on blueprints for Third Temple Written by Chris Perver Sunday, 02 December 2007 Following last weeks announcement by the Temple Institute, that craftsmen have completed the manufacture of the Golden Crown of the High Priest, Rabbi Chaim Richman has provided further details on the organization's preparations for the building of the Third Temple. In an interview with Arutz 7 regarding the completion of the Golden Crown, Richman comments that the vessels presently being manufactured for use in the Temple are impure, until the day Israel is in possession of a Red Heifer and they can be cleansed according to the Law. "For one thing," he said, "they are made in impurity - for now we are impure, and will remain impure until we are able to have a Red Heifer whose ashes can be used in the Torah-prescribed purification ceremony. If no Red Heifer is available, then the High Priest must even serve in the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur in a state of impurity". He also says the Temple Institute is presently engaged in several other projects relating to the rebuilding of the Temple...Quote: "Asked what project they're working on at present, Rabbi Richman said, "We have begun work on 120 sets of garments for 'regular' priests, not the High Priest. This involves special thread from India, etc. In addition, we have begun work on architectural blueprints for the Third Temple, including cost projection, modern supplies, electricity, plumbing, computers, etc." Richman states in the Arutz 7 article that the Golden Menorah, which is also loaned to the Temple Institute until the rebuilding of the Temple, is soon to be relocated to the steps that lead down from the Jewish quarter towards the Wailing Wall. He believes that through the rebuilding of the Temple, the Jewish people can bring the presence of God back into this world.Quote: ""We are now approaching the holiday of Chanukah," Rabbi Richman continued, "which is the holiday that commemorates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple. We're not just building beautiful vessels; we're interested in granting G-d the dwelling place that He wants in this world; the Temple is not merely a building, but a way of bringing G-d into our lives in a very real way. And that is what we aim to do. This tzitz is G-d's Chanukah present to us, and our Chanukah gift to the Jewish People."Richman is a member of the recently established Sanhedrin council. The group consists of 71 prominent rabbis and considers itself the highest ruling religious authority in the land of Israel. The Sanhedrin reformed on the 13th of October, 2004, for the first time in over 1600 years. They announced in 2005 that one of the tasks they are employed in is locating the exact site on which Herod's Temple once stood. They have also set themselves the task of choosing the modern state of Israel's first king, for they are entirely opposed to Israel's present democratic government. The Sanhedrin were recently investigated by the Israeli government regarding their staunch opposition to the disengagement from the Amona settlement in Samaria. Earlier in the year the Sanhedrin also sent a letter to every nation on earth, warning that the world is nearing a catastrophe, and that the only way to bring peace on earth is through the rebuilding of the Temple. If I were Jewish, I would probably say the same thing. But the Bible states that Israel will have no peace until they recognize their Messiah. Matthews 21:13And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.Luke 13:35Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.Praise God that we don't need a Temple in order to experience God's presence in our lives. The Bible says that Jesus Christ has not entered into a Temple made with hands, but has now entered into heaven itself as our Great High Priest, to appear in the presence of God on behalf of those who believe (Hebrews 9:24). Jesus Christ has not entered the Holy of Holies in a "state of impurity", He entered it with the blood of the Lamb - His own precious blood, so that our sins might be forgiven. As the Red Heifer is sacrificed outside the gate of the city (Numbers 19), so Jesus Christ suffered for us outside the gate (Hebrews 13:12). And as the priest becomes unclean in slaying the Red Heifer, yet its ashes are used to cleanse the people, so Jesus Christ who knew no sin was made sin for us, so that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2nd Corinthians 5:21).Would you like to be cleansed from all your sins? Would you like to know this Man, who is just and lowly, and having salvation (Zechariah 9:9)? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).

    Question # 323…..(08-30-07) Am I mistaken but if the 3rd Jewish Temple were to be rebuilt North of the Dome of the Rock, wouldn’t this place the third temple on the Temple Mount plaza? Actually I think all the different projections about a third temple being rebuilt are somewhere on the temple mount plaza. Where I am a little confused is the difference between Temple Mount plaza and Western Wall plaza.Answer…..The much debated and very controversial topic of a third Jewish Temple is a very volatile subject. However, Bible prophecy does convey the idea that a Temple, or some approved presence for Jews will be erected on the ancient Temple Mount in the Latter days. Any projected 3rd temple would very likely be configured just north of the present Dome of the Rock, and yes, that would indeed place it within the temple mount plaza. The temple mount plaza area is likely the area in view of Revelation chapter eleven, where the Lord indicates that it will left to the dictates of the coming Antichrist. (Revelation 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.) The western wall plaza is situated on the southeastern corner of the temple mount complex, and about 70 feet below the Temple Mount platform floor. The Western Wall (Wailing Wall) plaza was built after Israel captured the old city and the temple area in 1967 to accommodate Jews praying at the wall. The so-called Wailing Wall is but a portion of the ancient temple mount embankment wall erected by Herod that supports the temple mount plaza platform. The temple mount plaza encompasses the 35 acres that is situated inside the wall that surrounds the entire Mount Moriah complex.The Tribulation Temple During the Tribulation the Temple will be rebuilt by unbelieving Jews (Isaih 66:1-6), apparently as the result of a covenant made between the Jewish leadership and the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27), and desecrated by the Antichrist when he commits the “Abomination of Desolation” (Dan. 9:27) when he invades Jerusalem (Daniel 11:45; Revelation 11:2). Jesus enlarged upon Daniel’s prophecy by setting the Temple’s desecration as the signal event dividing the birth-pangs of the first half of the Tribulation from the remaining 1,260 days of “Great Tribulation” (Mathew. 24:15; Mark 13:14; Revelation 11:1-2) which begins an unparalleled period of Jewish persecution leading up to the rescue of the redeemed Remnant at the second advent of Messiah (Zechariah 12:8-14; 14:3-5; Luke 21:27-28; Revelation 19:11-16). Paul further developed the prophecy of the Temple’s desecration in his description of the end-time “deception” that will accompany the revelation of the “man of lawlessness” (II Thess. 2:4, 10). He explained this as the Antichrist’s blasphemous act to usurp God’s place in the Holy of Holies (II Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13:6, 14-15). The Tribulation Temple may be destroyed at the return of Christ when the Mount of Olives splits (Zechariah 14:4), but it will certainly be removed as part of the extensive topographical changes that will prepare for the Millennial Jerusalem and its Temple (Zechariah 14:10; Isaiah 2:2). .The Jewish Temple will probably be placed about 300 feet to the right or north in this view. The eastern gate can be seen in the front wall views here. The anticipated 3rd temple will likely be located along that tree-lined area with the northern plaza floor. The fact that the Jews today venerate the Wailing Wall symbolizes the fact that they lack faith in Jehovah God, and therefore are and continue to be denied access to the Temple Mount area. During the Tribulation, they will unfortunately misplace their faith in the Antichrist, leave the Wailing Wall and begin their sacrifices on the Mount plaza, just as in the old days. These events will lead to the act of the abomination of desolation by the Antichrist!.............................................................................................................................It is interesting that all the utensils are made and waiting

    KrissI dont recall a third temple to be built in bible. This article shows that the jews are just as adiment as ever about rejecting Christ. That is why I still question the fig tree prophesy. Interesting sounds like it could take another ten years or so to do it! The building permit will be the kicker (Politics) I dont believe God will have anything to do with it since he is the new temple.

    It is interesting isnt it? Jesus became the holie of holies. Could that have cancelled out anything to do with temple? I guess we have to take that literally dont we? Ive always had a hard time with a 3rd temple being built.. It will definately not be Gods temple.Hopefully we will find out soon.

    I have never heard it put that way but there is a physical place where the Ark setThe only true temple that will be is Christ himself but as I have said this temple will be of antichrist not God.also remember it is this Abomination of Desolation (antichrist(Satan) standing in the holiest place on earth declaring himself god that makes the jews realize that this is a fake christ this is the very act that will bring the jews to realize who the true Christ isThis is the first giant step that will bring all Jews with the gentiles to Christwhere as the two sticks (branches) spoken of in Ez. are joined under Christ.

    Of course it won't! God never graced the presence of the 2nd Temple in the manner he did in the first. Actually, he did in the form of his Son but not in the OT maner. 2/3 of all Isrealis consider themselves Jewish by blood and not by faith. In my experience, even when sticking to the OT it is not possible to connect with a Jew. One responded "Well, Moses never had acesss to modern science so we can't use Moses as the standard these days"

    They have also set themselves the task of choosing the modern state of Israel's first king, for they are entirely opposed to Israel's present democratic government.
    This would prove to be interesting. As we know, the genealogies must have been kept intact to do so. I wonder who they would consider qualified to be a son of King David and Solomon?If one looks at Jesus' genealogy in my signature, we see there are 3 predominate lineages to consider. The first is the legal royal lineage passed from father to son via Solomon. This is Matthew's genealogy. I would say to find such a person from that lineage (next to Christ Himself, or a brother in other words) one has to follow the same genealogy as (I hate to say it, but it is true) the one proposed in the controversial books like "Holy Blood Holy Grail" and Dan Brown's "Da Vinci Code" (which is fiction based on supposed factual genealogies).However, there is a major problem with Matthew's genealogy. A blood son of that genealogy, although the rightful heir de jure, has the curse of Jeremiah 22:30 on him. I wonder if the Jews would consider that? And that includes all the "Da Vinci" kings (for want of a better term) as well.The second lineage is that of Luke. Jesus came via David's son Nathan making him a blood relative to David, but not the recognized royal lineage. Jesus' connection to the royal lineage is recognized by Joseph's lineage in Matthew thereby God allowing him to be legal and blood heir to the throne and repairing that cursed breach in the lineage of the kings. This lineage is referred to in Isaiah 11 as "the branch from the root of Jesse". This is a genealogical branch that splits off closer to King David's generation instead of the (rightful) King Solomon. I doubt very much if this lineage is recognized by the Jews since these are cousins to the royals. Lastly, there is the Zedekiah lineage (the uncle of the cursed Jehoiachin) where his daughter was married to the High King of Ireland, and the Irish King was originally from the Zorah branch of Judah thereby perpetuating the throne of David according to God's allowance (see Ezekiel 17:22-24). In that case, technically the Queen of England has more rights to the Jewish throne due to her lineage than some character that the Jews would pick. However, the Bible says that throne will remain there uninterrupted until Christ comes back to claim it, where it will overturn one last time back to Jerusalem. Obviously, this will be AFTER the return of Christ, so this will not happen, either.It all should prove VERY interesting. I'm definitely staying tuned for this one.
