Update on the Third Temple of Jerusalem

A quick history of the Temple of Jerusalem

The first temple was built by King Solomon and destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. It was restored by Herod the Great with Nehemiah in 20 BCE. On August 30, 70 CE, Roman legions under Emperor Titus destroyed the Second Temple during the siege of Jerusalem.

The Jews were expelled from Jerusalem and dispersed mainly in Europe. They could return to their homeland after 2,000 years when World War 2 ended.

The new Nation of Israel was born in 1948. Only a portion of the Jewish Temple’s western wall remains, which is alleged to be part of the second temple, which is why it is regarded as a “holy place.”

Prophecy of Apostle John

In Revelation 11:1-2, Apostle John was given a snapshot of the Temple Mount during the final three and one-half years preceding the Second Coming of Jesus and the Battle of Armageddon.

Prophecy Update on the Third Temple of Jerusalem

1. The site of the Third Temple of Jerusalem

On April 3, 2019, Moshe Feiglin, in his speech at the Maariv Jerusalem Post conference in Tel Aviv, said he wanted to rebuild the Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem immediately.

The Dome of the Rock is believed to stand on the site of the Second Temple, although some scholars suggest it may have been located slightly north or south of its current position.

The proposed location of the third temple is the Temple Mount or Mount Moriah. It is where King David chose to build the first temple, although his son, King Solomon, later built it.

This site (Haram esh-Sharif in Arabic) holds religious significance for Jews, Christians, and Muslims, making it a focal point of tension and debate regarding its use and ownership.

To avoid war with the Muslim, who occupies a considerable part (the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque), it will likely be built around it.


2. Preparation of the Third Temple articles

Israel has begun preparing to rebuild the third temple by recreating temple articles, designating temple roles, including the nine priests, training, and creating a blueprint. Everything is ready but the red heifer. [Jewish Voice]

Attempts to rebuild the Third Temple started even before the Middle Ages. In 1990, rumors that Jewish extremists would begin rebuilding the temple sparked riots.

As of June 2008, the Temple Institute has recreated the Kohen Gadol, Hoshen (breastplate), and Ephod. In 2012, the menorah was displayed. It is covered with 95 pounds of pure gold and reportedly is worth $2 million.

In 2003, the independent group Temple Mount Faithful sought permission from Israeli police to hold a symbolic cornerstone-laying ceremony using six-ton stones crafted with diamond tools, adhering to biblical tradition to rebuild the temple. However, they were thwarted.


3. Waiting for Red Heifer in 2024

There are various reasons why it probably can’t be built at the moment, but the Red Heifer is the most important biblical requirement for rebuilding the temple (Numbers 19).

The heifer must be born from a natural birth and be entirely red with no more than two non-red hairs on its body. It must also never have been used for any labor or have been impregnated. [CBN]

The Temple Institute red heifer breeding program includes the implanting of frozen Red Angus embryos into domestic Israeli cattle.

The red-haired heifer is crucial for the “first temple sacrifice” to consecrate and purify the area, which has witnessed much death and bloodshed. Only a flawless and unblemished red heifer can accomplish this ritual purification through animal sacrifice.

Jews all over the world, particularly in Texas, have been attempting to breed the perfect heifer. Although there have been major breakthroughs, some have developed white hair or are not as fit and “perfect sacrifice.”

Other reasons for the construction delay

  • The unit of cubit measurement is debated.
  • The Talmud states that the Second Temple was built under prophetic guidance, implying the necessity of divine revelation for any reconstruction efforts.
  • Orthodox Jewish scholars oppose Temple construction until the “Jewish Messiah” (not Jesus) arrives. In Christian exegesis, rebuilding the Third Temple is critical to Jesus’s return, just as the arrival of the “Jewish Messiah” was critical.

The latest third temple update

Texas red cows for breeding red heifers in Israel

Despite Israeli ranchers’ efforts to breed red heifers, suitable candidates are still to be determined. Recent “red breeds” were deemed unsuitable as they developed white hairs before reaching three years of age.

On September 15, 2022, five red cows (Texas “red Angus”) were imported from the United States to breeding farms in Israel. They are in an undisclosed location in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The Temple Institute initiated its Red Heifer program approximately ten years prior. [CBS]
