Israeli Group Says Build the Third Temple For Peace

The Temple Institute is now starting on the building’s architectural plans having already recreated 60 vessels & implements needed for Temple worship.

Ceasefires, truces and bilateral agreements will never bring the peace most people in the Middle East desire. Only by following the biblical model, including the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, can genuine peace be achieved, argues an Israeli organization dedicated to that goal.

“Every prophet of Israel, without exception, prophesied that the Temple would be rebuilt, ushering a new era of universal harmony and peace,” wrote the Temple Institute as an intro to its new crowd-funding campaign at Indiegogo.

The Temple Institute has already spent years recreating 60 of the vessels and implements necessary for Temple worship, per specifications contained in the Bible.

Now, the group is embarking on “one of its most ambitious projects yet: completing architectural plans for the actual construction” of the Third Temple, an effort that will require “fusing ancient texts and modern technology.”

Toward this goal, the Temple Institute is looking to raise $100,000 in the next two months.

Some argue that the Temple will not and can not be rebuilt by earthly hands. The Temple Institute disagrees. “It is not enough to wait and pray for the Third Temple. It is a Biblical obligation to build it,” the group insists.

During a heated session of the Knesset’s Interior Committee last month, an outspoken and extremist Arab MK insisted that the Jews had no right to the Temple Mount and the eastern half of Jerusalem, to which a Jewish MK replied:

“On the Temple Mount our temple will be built in our time.”

    What must Israel do to please the Almighty? Return to Him in the way He instructs. Hearts must be soft and humble, not stony. I question a statement in the video: “break the yoke of the law”? Ezra and Nehemia properly explained the meaning and sense of the law. Yeshua taught obedience to the law and spoke only the words he received from the Almighty. Israel is starting to fulfill the law as it seeks to be a light to the nations. Israel’s charity and works are impressive. That is what gets the Almighty’s attention and His ear. Yes, He wants a temple, that He may be glorified and take pleasure in it. But He wants hearts, attitude and obedience first. That’s when you will see miracles from the God of the armies of Israel.

      Israel’s attitude is shown by its refusal to rebuild the temple. That is the message of Haggai. Israel might think it is being a “light unto the Gentiles”; but if its people refuse to build the temple to honor God, they show that they are only interested in vainglory, in showing what they can do through human strength.

    The fast and the humility the Almighty requires is in Isaiah 58: 6-12. That gets the Almighty’s attention. Break the yoke of wickedness and disobedience. Put on the yoke of kindness, love and obedience. That fulfills the law in reality and spirit. When Israel does that, the Almighty will open their understanding and their eyes to behold wonderful things. All Christians should take heed that they are grafted into Israel and into Yah, the God of Israel. Listen O Israel, and listen O Christians, your God is one.

  3. Michael S. says:

    God commanded the rebuilding of the temple through Haggai. The King of the Universe is the only God who is not honored on earth with an edifice.

    One more point about the video: the mention of the spot of the temple. Is it really the Dome of the Rock? How about the Dome of the Spirits? Sight the Eastern Gate from there.
    The claim of the “man”, the apparition, speaking of the spot of the Ark of the Covenant: Is that of itself a sign of credibility?
