Temple Institute Raises $100k for Third Temple Plans

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Third Jewish Temple

There will be a third Jewish Temple at the time of the Tribulation, and it will be that temple that the future Antichrist will desecrate with his claims to be God.

He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 NIV

Temple Institute Raises $100k for Third Temple Plans
The Temple Institute’s crowd funding campaign to raise funds for the modern architectural plans for the Third Holy Temple in Jerusalem came to a close onRosh Hashanah after surpassing its $100,000 goal in 60 days. The initiative began on the first day of the month of Av, when Jews commemorate the destruction of the ancient Holy Temples. Almost 900 pledges have come in from more than 30 countries worldwide. Jews have prayed to rebuild the Temple, three times daily since its destruction by Roman Legions in 70 CE. The Temple Institute's project to draw up architectural plans began three years ago with the Chamber of Hewn Stone, depicted in this video, (see below). 

Palestinians Irate As ‘Third Temple With Underground Parking’ Crowdfunding Raises $105,000
The new Jewish Temple will offer millions of pilgrims underground parking, according to a new plan that just received the endorsement of hundreds of supporters who put their money where their faith is. An Israeli right wing organization known as the Temple Institute has announced on Sunday that its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to support modern architectural plans for the third Jewish temple in Jerusalem has concluded successfully on Rosh Hashanah, having picked up $104,814 in 60 days. The campaign’s goal had been $100,000. The first Jewish temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 586 BCE; the second in 70 CE. The Temple Institute campaign began on August 5, which was the first day of the Jewish month of Av, the time of year associated with the destruction of both temples.

Another Temple in Jerusalem?
Even more perplexing in all of these attempts at peace is what to do with the Temple Mount. Some staunchly favor maintaining the status quo—allowing Muslim control of the area including the Al-Aqsa mosque and the iconic Dome of the Rock. Yet the deep religious, historical and cultural importance of the site brings out a myriad of competing opinions, especially among those of the Jewish religion. The most visible are Israeli groups devoted to building a new temple on the site.
