The Coming Jewish Temple

According to Jewish and Christian prophecy, in the latter days there will be built in Jerusalem a third Jewish Temple. The first Temple was built in the days of Solomon, and the second Temple in the time of King Herod. The second Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Romans.

Several of the pertinent prophecies are:

“In the last days
the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established
as chief among the mountains;
it will be raised above the hills,
and peoples will stream to it.
Many nations will come and say,
Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob
.” – Micah 4:1-2 NIV

“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

“He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ (year period) he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (Daniel 9:27).

Along with this there are a number of significant, related events now taking place:

The Jewish Sanhedrin Reestablished

( This past October, the Sanhedrin was reestablished for the first time in 1,600 years, at the site of its last meeting in Tiberias. Tradition is recorded in the Talmud (Tractate Megillah 17b, Rashi) that the Sanhedrin will be restored after a partial ingathering of the Jewish exiles, but before Jerusalem is completely rebuilt and restored. Another Talmudic tradition (Eruvin 43b; Maharatz Chajas ad loc; Rashash to Sanhedrin 13b) states that Elijah the Prophet will present himself before a duly-ordained Sanhedrin when he announces the coming of the Messiah.


The Temple Mount Faithful

The Temple Mount Faithful are a group of Israelis who have, since their founding, created numerous Temple utensils and furniture (Table of Shewbread, for example) for the express purpose of stocking the anticipated new Jewish Temple once it is rebuilt.

The goal of the Temple Mount Faithful is the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in our lifetime in accordance with the Word of God and all the Hebrew prophets and the liberation of the Temple Mount from Arab (Islamic) occupation so that it may be consecrated to the Name of God.


Selecting Levis for Temple Services – The fascinating story of how DNA studies confirm an ancient biblical tradition

Recent reports are that many Levis have now been identified and are now in training to perform anticipated Temple practices and services. Besides some who have claimed to have their traditional genealogies, the following DNA analysis also seems to indicate a particular, identifiable blood marker in Levis / Cohens:

The finding of a common set of genetic markers in both Ashkenazi and Sephardi Cohanim worldwide clearly indicates an origin pre-dating the separate development of the two communities around 1000 CE. Date calculation based on the variation of the mutations among Cohanim today yields a time frame of 106 generations from the ancestral founder of the line, some 3,300 years — the approximate time of the Exodus from Egypt.


Watch for more developments in Israel and Jerusalem in the months and years ahead. The building of the Third Jewish Temple will no doubt stir up quite a ruckus, and no doubt a call to arms amongst many Muslim groups.
