For First Time in Millennia, Jewish Priests Will Undergo Training to Enter Temple’s Holy of Holies

For the first time in 2,000 years, a group of Kohanim (men of the Jewish priestly caste) living close to Jerusalem’s Old City are studying the relevant Jewish laws to be able to ascend the Temple Mount and enter the Holy of Holies, where God’s presence is said to dwell.

Despite Arab threats, thousands march around Old City walls, marking beginning of Tisha B’Av.

 

Jesus is the only solution, and one day He will come for His people.

In leaked recording, US President Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor sounds uncertain whether the administration could find a ‘unique’ solution to the decades old conflict; addressing the Temple Mount crisis, he says ‘a lot of seemingly logical measures taken that somehow became a little bit incendiary.’

Impetus!

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.  Zec 12:2

The recent passing of UN resolution 2334 first proposed by Egypt, but possibly orchestrated between US Secretary of State John Kerry and US National Security Advisor Susan Rice and a Palestinian delegation headed by senior Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) member Saeb Erekat  is perhaps the first domino to fall leading up to Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel and the building of the temple.

Full text of UNSC Resolution 2334, demanding Israel stop all settlement activity

It is interesting to note that the resolution was passed on December 23rd, but was already December 24 in Israel once it passed. That day was the Jewish month of Kislev 24 and after the first attempt failed to rebuild the 2nd temple under the rule of King Cyrus of Persia, construction resumed in the second year under the reign of King Darius, on the 24th of Kislev. The prophet Haggi had much to say about that day.

18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord‘s temple was laid, consider it. 19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. 20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, 21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; 22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.

The passing of the UN resolution will do just the opposite of what it was intended for. Israel will never give up Jerusalem and her future decisions regarding the resolution will greatly increase the chances of 2017 fulfilling much biblical prophecy including Jerusalem becoming the official capital of Israel and the building of the temple. Keep your eyes on Israel.

On a side note, New Years has fallen on a Sunday (resurrection day) many times in the past, but this year….right after the passing of the impetus! Will 2017 be the year of resurrection???

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Tit 2:13

Trump, Putin, and the 3rd Temple?

Sanhedrin Asks Putin and Trump to Build Third Temple in Jerusalem

It remains to be seen if Trump will hold good on his promises, but there is one very interesting fact. On the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency (January 21st), he will be exactly 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old. Then exactly 7 months later on August 21st, 2017 will be the Great American Eclipse.

New School for Temple Priests in Jerusalem

The Temple Institute has announced the opening of a school to train descendants of the Tribe of Levi for their eventual return to service in the Third Temple.

Watch the 3 minute video and notice at the end he says “because in the end the Kohanim are meant to serve the entire nation of Israel and all the world”.

Tisha b’Av: The Third Holy Temple Plans Have Begun!

Today, on the Fast of Av, Jews throughout the world mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples of Jerusalem and pray for the rebuilding of the Third Temple.

But one organization has been doing a lot more than just praying.

The Temple Institute has released a modern three-dimensional architectural rendition of the future Third Holy Temple, utilizing the latest building material and techniques.

A Modern Chanukah ‘Miracle’: Pure Olive Oil for the First Time in 2,000 Years

The progression towards building the 3rd Temple continues……

A short time ago, we reported on a historic development towards the renewal of Temple service in our time: the production of vessels according to the laws of Biblical purity, to hold oil that will be used to kindle the seven-branched golden menorah in the Holy Temple when it is rebuilt. This past week, the Temple Institute made history once again, and took another huge step towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple: the production of pure olive oil, according to the standards of Biblical purity… for the Holy Temple menorah.
