The Prophets of the Bible called for the construction of a third Jewish Holy temple to be built prior to, or in tandem with, the return of Christ.
This temple has a significant role in the last days
• The Antichrist will bring a 7 year peace treaty between Israel and Palestine. 3 1/2 years into the agreement, the Antichrist will stand in this holy temple, halt all Jewish worship and proclaim himself to be God Daniel 9:27 – 2 Thessalonians 2:4
• This act triggers the GREAT tribulation Matt. 24:15-22
The 2nd Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70AD; putting the Jewish people on “hold” from their most treasured act of living; worship. After the 1967 6-Days War, Israel let the Palestinians govern the temple mount, who further prevented them from rebuilding their house of prayer, or even worshiping on the mount.
The Temple Institute was founded in 1967 (after the war), with the goal of rebuilding the 3rd temple on the temple Mount. To date, The Temple Institute has trained Rabbis and has re-created almost all of the vessels, utensils and garments needed, to resume worship in the temple. Even down to the most important piece; the arc of the covenant. They could begin construction tomorrow.
Present / Future:
All that remains now is a political peace agreement with the Palestinians, which will include a temple mount sharing agreement, allowing Israel to re-build their 3rd temple on the mount.
