Messianic preparations underway as 3rd Temple planned
For the first time in hundreds of years, there are serious preparations underway to build the Third Temple prophesied in Scripture.
This week, the nascent Sanhedrin, a group attempting to revive the ancient Jewish legal institution, reportedly selected an individual to serve as high priest if the political situation allowed Jews to access the Temple Mount for Yom Kippur.
The high priest would bring the sacrifices which would be offered in such a situation.
Rabbi Baruch Kahane declined the nomination to serve as “Kohen Gadol,” or high priest. Instead, Kahane has reportedly been nominated to serve in a different clerical role.
However, he also told Breaking Israel News preparations must be made so a Temple service can be performed if the political situation permits it.
“It is clear that we need to be prepared, to prepare the priests, to have everything ready,” he was quoted as saying.
Other preparations are also being made. The Temple Institute in Jerusalem, a group dedicated to physically constructing the Third Temple, used crowd funding to raise over $100,000 to create architectural plans for building the Third Temple. The same organization also reconstructed the Altar of the Lord. There are even attempts to breed the special red heifers suitable for ritual use.
