Planning The Third Temple

Tonight, as a Succot celebration here in Shiloh, I heard a talk about the Third Temple.



It took place in a neighbor's large succah.

Considering that even today, after seventy 70 years of the State of Israel, which bli eyin haraa, seems stronger and more stable and successful than ever, many Jews still have trouble accepting this reality, talk of the measurements of the Third Temple may seem a bit "premature." But as I listened I thought of how just barely a hundred and fifty years ago, the vast majority of Jews couldn't fathom the idea that there would be a Jewish State. They thought that Theodor Herzl and other early Zionists were totally daft.

I kept thinking of this famous quotation from Theodor Herzl as I listened to a very detailed explanation of dimensions of the yet unbuilt Holy Temple. Gd willing we won't need to wait much longer to liberate the Temple Mount and build the Third Temple.
If you will it, it is no dream

Indeed. Thank you, Batya.

No offense intended, but with all due respect,
planning to build The Temple is ridiculously
premature, for reasons so numerous that I do not
have time to specify half of them.

First, the sins that caused the destruction
of the previous temple continue undiminished:
jealousy, Sinat Chinam and Lashone Hara
and lack of Ahavat Yisrael.

Second, there can be no Temple when Israel is the
gay-and-lesbian capital of the entire Middle East.

Plus, widespread Chillul Shabbat and lack of business ethics.

Third, any attempt to build the Temple would
instantly cause a war with Muslims, who outnumber
Jews by more than 1,000-to-1. Additionally,
the Muslims would have the full backing of:
the European Union, the United Nations,
the entire international news media, Hollywood,
the entire international academic world, Google,
YouTube, Yahoo, the USA Democratic Party, and
many other powerful enemies too numerous to specify.

Fourth, 100% of non-Orthodox Jews and 99.999% of
Orthodox Jews are totally unprepared for the Temple

Fifth, many complicated technical reasons
that I do not have time to explain.

CDG, all the best.

Mr. Cohen, we must agree to disagree, but please be polite and show respect.

Mr. Cohen here does make a lot of sense. Moshiach has to come first and fix an awful lot and then the Beit HaMikdash.

See the Radak, Rambam, obviously Josephus, the Tanach and current archeology in the City of David. All agree that the Temples stood about 600 ft south of the Mount. See the book of the Maccabees to see what they did to the original Mt. ZION. Unfortunatly the tradition and Erev Rav are stopping the Temple to be built on Jewish owned, undefiled land next to the still active Gihon Spring. With the recent certified Red Heifer in Israel, what are we waiting for to change history forever? Oh, yes, tradition......

"In this house and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put My name forever."

When the ANZAC forces first engaged the Turkish forces at Gallipoli they discovered they had taken on an enemy that they could not overcome in its home land. But at Beersheba on G-d's chosen land the light horse survived aerial bombardment, heavy artillery, machine guns and rifles in their charge against the Turkish trenches with only bayonets in hand and rifles slung across their backs.

As Mr. Cohen has indicated there are seemingly insurmountable hurdles that hinder the rebuilding of the temple. But who has ever stood against G-d when the time was ripe for Him to fulfill His purpose.
