Worthy Christian News » Temple Institute Raises Funds for Draft Plans for 3rd Temple

JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– The Temple Institute has created a $100,000 Indiegogo campaign to raise financing for "architectural plans" to construct the Third Temple, which it says will be a "house of prayer for all nations" and will usher in "a new era of universal harmony and peace" as prophesied in the Bible.

The campaign says, "After millennia of yearning, only one organization is paving the way for the rebuilding of the Temple. The Temple Institute (מכון המקדש) located in the Old City of Jerusalem is a research organization dedicated to the preparing for the construction of the Third Temple, including the recreation of 60 sacred Temple vessels ready for use once the Temple is rebuilt.  These include the High Priest's breastplate featuring the twelve precious stones of the tribes of Israel, the half-ton golden menorah, and the musical instrument of the Levitical choir."

"Now is time for one of its most ambitious projects yet: completing architectural plans for the actual construction, fusing ancient texts and modern technology. While strictly adhering to the religious requirements set forth in Biblical texts, the Third Temple will also be equipped with every modern amenity: full computerization, underground parking, temperature control, elevators, docks for public transportation, wheelchair access, and much more," the campaign statement continued.

"It is not enough to wait and pray for the Third Temple. It is a Biblical obligation to build it," the campaign concluded.

However, Bible scholars say the Temple will be built by the Messiah himself as He sits as a priest and a king on His throne. They point to a passage in Zechariah where it states emphatically twice that the "Branch" will build the temple, whom New Testament scholars say is Jesus and will be fulfilled after His second coming.

"Thus says the LORD of hosts, "And say to him, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: for he shall branch out from his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.  It is he who shall build the temple of the LORD and shall bear royal honor, and shall sit and rule on his throne. And there shall be a priest on his throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both." [Zechariah 6:12-13]

Furthermore, prophecy experts warn that the next temple to appear will be the temple of the Antichrist.

As the Bible warns, "Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." [2 Thessalonians 2:3-4]

Finally, Bible scholars remind Christians of Jesus' warning as He told his followers to watch for the sign of the 'abomination of desolation.' [Matthew 24:15]  Experts warn that the 'abomination of desolation' will be a picture of the Antichrist sitting in the temple proclaiming himself as "God."

Earlier this year, the Temple Institute announced the possibility of finding the red heifer, which is believed to be necessary in the event the Temple will be rebuilt.

        Tsolo: Hi, Revelation tells us that there must be a temple in order for the Antichrist to have a place to demand worship. He will sit in the temple and proclaim to be GOD and people will worship him. There would have to be a third temple in order for this to happen. The other two were destroyed, so right now there is no temple (Jewish Temple).

        They have been working (building) on the furnishings for the interior of the Temple for awhile now. They have supposedly found the Red Heifer (and it's going to be from what I read) sent over there. I am thinking that a new Temple will be ready by the end of 2015 if not before. We are closer to the return of JESUS (YESHUA) than people realize. We are told not to love the world or the things of the world as this world is not our home, we are just passing through.
        This world (our lives) was practice for what is to come IF we believe and IF we obey…We must persevere to the end according to Revelation.

    This is what sticks in my mind reading this devotion "Furthermore, prophecy experts warn that the next temple to appear will be the temple of the Antichrist". We have to be aware of all what is decided around us!

    The 'State of Israel' was brought about by a people called the Zionist Congress from Europe, at it's inception in year-1897 rejected by faithful Jewish leaders. This holds true even today, yet little known for kept from voice being heard. Also is this State, begun from a Rothschild 'Jewish Fund', today under a different name held by the government, owns 90% of the land called by Christians as 'Israel'. Perhaps most important, is the remnant today called a temple 'Wailing Wall', but considered instead to be Ft Antonia where Roman soldiers were garrisoned, this need while completely tearing down the Temple of Herod, until 'not one stone remained upon another'. Do not wait for the Lord to return, instead 'be ready'.
