When will the third Holy Temple be rebuilt?
The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has produced three short videos on one and the same theme: it is todays children that is the generation that will rebuild the third Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the one that is prophesized by Hezekiel about 2500 years ago and described in detail in the Bible – “The children are ready” is the common name of these videos.

The Temple Institute published the first video in 2012, the second in 2013 and the third only a few days ago, on 27 July 2014. This is part of how the Temple Institute presented these films:
On Tisha B’Av, the Jewish people mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple. Seated on the floor as mourners, the adults in the synagogue recite the traditional kinnot dirges. But is the goal simply the continuation of the mourning, for the sake of mourning? The children have a different idea of what needs to be done… (1st and 2nd video)
When will the third Holy Temple be rebuilt? The old school thinks that will only happen in the distant future, when everyone is united by unconditional love. But that future is now. Today’s youth are already linking arms together and putting aside all differences, ready to rebuild. It is the inspiration of the Holy Temple itself, with its promise of hope and peace that brings together all people in unity. This is the generation that will rebuild the Holy Temple. (3rd video of 2014)
But one shouldn’t be too surprised if the present Islamic mosques on the Temple Mount will be demolished by some Hamas rockets in the present Gazan war as Hamas is active also in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria (the so called West Bank) and their missiles can reach Jerusalem also from Gaza. If so, it will not be the task of the young generation to build the third Holy Temple. Then this Temple building project and the consequences it might cause will be imminent. But the Jewish Israelis usually aren’t and shouldn’t be afraid of making tough decisions. The Bible (e.g. Ezekiel, St. Luke, Book of Revelations) indicates that a third Holy Temple is part of God’s plan with mankind in the End Times.
