Blueprints for the Third Holy Temple

The Temple Institute, an organization which has tasked itself with preparing for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem, has published the first set of blueprints for a small part of the building. Architects have completed work on an area known as the 'Chamber of Hewn Stone,' the says Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute. The chamber is a central component of the Holy Temple complex on the Temple Mount, and the place where the Sanhedrin are to sit.

The Sanhedrin is a religious council that is made up of 71 of the most learned Jewish scholars in the land of Israel. The Sanhedrin, which presided over the trial of the Lord Jesus Christ, was dissolved in the year 358 AD. The council was officially reconvened on the 13th of October, 2004.

Often in direct opposition to government policy, they have taken on various projects, such as planning for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple and anointing a king to replace the democratically elected Knesset. They have in the past attempted to reinstate the sacrificial system (Daniel 9:27). [1]

A Jewish interfaith initiative to build the Third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, would not necessitate the destruction of the Dome of the Rock. "God's Holy Mountain Vision" project hopes to defuse religious strife by showing that Jews' end-of-days vision could harmoniously accommodate Islam's present architectural site on the Temple Mount. "This vision of religious shrines in peaceful proximity can transform the Temple Mount from a place of contention to its original sacred role as a place of worship shared by Jews, Muslims and Christians."
The Temple Institute has been preparing ritual objects suitable for Temple use. Many of the over ninety ritual items to be used in the Temple have been made by the Temple Institute.
The fine details for the operation of the Temple are already established. Jewish teaching regarding the rebuilding of the Temple requires the role of a prophet. This prophet would have extraordinary authority, including the discretion to specify the Temple's precise location, regardless of any diverging Jewish traditions.[2]
It has long been the goal of Freemasonry to rebuild the Temple. The Masons have been steadfastly determined since 1782 to seize control of the Temple Mount, so they could resurrect Solomon’s Temple for use by their Masonic Christ! It is likely that we will see this in our lifetime.
