Massive Infrastructure to Transport Millions of Pilgrims to Third Temple Underway

editor 14 July 2017

By Joshua Wander.. “Thou shalt also be a crown of beauty in the hand of Hashem, and a royal diadem in the open hand of thy God.” Isaiah 62:3. For the first time in approximately 2,000 years, since the time of the Second Temple, plans are being formed by the Israeli government to build an effective infrastructure for Jews to make their obligatory pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. God commands in the Bible that all Jews make their way to the Temple three times a year.

Year of Shocking Upset Victories Prelude to Most Unbelievable Upheaval of All: Rabbis

editor 1 May 2017

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz.. “The days wherein the Yehudim had rest from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to gladness, and from mourning into a good day; that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.” Esther 9:22. After a year typified by upset victories in sports and politics, some rabbis sees this week’s ‘turnaround’ holiday of Purim leading up to the celebration of Israel’s 70th year as a portal that will open the way for the most impressive upset victory of all time: the Third Temple.

Why Haven’t Jews Rebuilt the Temple Yet?

editor 24 July 2015

By C4i International.. Tish’a B’Av (Hebrew: תשעה באב or ט׳ באב, “the Ninth of Av,”) is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Tish’a B’Av begins at sundown on Sat, 25 July 2015.

Jewish activists want to pray on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, raising alarm in Muslim world

editor 8 December 2013

By William Booth and Ruth Eglash.. JERUSALEM — A small but growing movement by Jewish activists demanding the right to pray at the site of their destroyed temple, in the heart of this disputed capital’s Old City, is creating a potentially explosive clash with the Muslim world, which considers the spot holy and bans Jews from public worship there.

Each week, hundreds of Jews ascend the creaky wooden ramp built above the Western Wall and enter what is often called the most contested real estate on Earth. Many then embark upon a game of hide-and-seek with their police escorts — whispering forbidden prayers while pretending to talk into cellphones, and getting in quick but banned bows by dropping coins and then bending to pick them up.

Focus on the Future (Series 3 / Episode 12)

editor 3 July 2013

By Rev Willem Glashouwer.. When people look at the future and look at Jerusalem they sometimes ask: “Will there be another Temple?” The first Temple stood in the heart of Jerusalem. It was the Temple of King Solomon. It stood in the center of Mount Zion. Then the Babylonians came, destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple and took the Jews into captivity. It has happened between 600 and 500 BCE. After that the second Temple was built. (more…)

A New Muslim Vision: Rebuilding Salomon’s Temple Together

editor 27 March 2013

To cast believers out is a heinous and cruel policy, an offense not only to men, but to Islam.

By Sinem Tezyapar.. The importance of the Temple Mount to Judaism and to Islam makes the location vulnerable to tensions and conflicts between Jews and Muslims. Usually, these incidents originate in rumors such as: “The Jews are coming today to bomb the mosques and build their Third Temple.” Obviously, false accusations and baseless suspicions like these turn the site from a holy place of prayer and love into a site of violent political demonstrations. And, consequently, potential escalation of tension brings more restrictions and discomfort to all. Who benefits from this? Surely not the believers. (more…)
