Most Israelis has no aspirations of rebuilding the Temple. Even among those who would like to see the Temple restored, most do not believe Israel can undertake something so controversial absent a direct act of God.

But that didn’t stop Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) from stating that “we need to build a real Temple on the Temple Mount.”

Ariel was speaking at a press event in the Samarian community of Shilo, where archaeologists have uncovered remains of the biblical Tabernacle that was located there for hundreds of years before King David’s conquest of Jerusalem.

    The rebuilding of the Temple will come soon to pass. Could this be the fulfillment of the prophecy “Acts 15:15-18
    15 The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written:

    16 “‘After this I will return and rebuild David’s fallen tent.
    Its ruins I will rebuild,and I will restore it,17 that the remnant of men may seek the Lord,and all the Gentiles who bear my name,
    says the Lord, who does these things’ 18 that have been known for ages.
    (see also Amos 9:11-12)
