THE ARCHITECTURAL PLANS FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE HAVE BEGUN!

THE ARCHITECTURAL PLANS FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE HAVE BEGUN!

Av 9, 5775/July 26, 2015

Today, the Ninth of Av, the solemn day of mourning which commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples, the Temple Institute has released a modern three-dimensional architectural rendition of the future Third Holy Temple utilizing the latest building material and techniques. The three-minute video walks viewers through the main sanctuary, showcasing decades of research and tens of innovative Halachic solutions to various perplexing issues that were resolved to create fully functional, ready-to-use plans. As the visual tour sweeps through the sanctuary, one can see the menorah, incense altar and showbread table, all of which have already been prepared by the Institute, among 70 other sacred vessels.



The video comes one year after the Temple Institute appealed to our supporters to take part in an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign that raised over $100,000 for the architectural plans. This year, as you are aware, we have recently begun our equally important "Raise a Red Heifer in Israel" Indiegogo campaign. Over the past five years, the Temple Institute has unveiled our most ambitious campaigns and most poignant videos for the purpose of redefining the Tisha b'Av mourning period into one of active preparation for the Third Holy Temple.



Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of The Temple Institute notes: “One third of all Torah commandments pertain to the building of and service in the Holy Temple. Today, we not only mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples, but also our inability to fulfill one third of the Torah. But the time has come to cease mourning and begin building in earnest. Over the last three decades, the Temple Institute has done everything in our power to research and prepare for the Third Temple. As world Jewry sits on the ground mourning the first two Temples, we have taken a huge leap towards the rebuilding. The architectural plans for the Temple and our current project to raise a perfect Red Heifer are two complimentary components essential to begin the immediate building of the Holy Temple.”

 

Join our Raise a Red heifer in Israel Indiegogo fundraising campaign: Together we can put an end to Tisha b'Av mourning forever!

Bibical Number Four and the World system Part two

By Brother Bob D.
Biblical Number Four and the World System Part Two



There are so many examples of how the context of the number 4 is used in the Bible that I had to break this article down into two parts.

To speak in very brief terms the number four according to the Bible involves this world system. We can chose to pursue the love of God and experience this through His Son Jesus Christ. The dimension of "Four" is elevated to a higher more incomprehensible level that is simply beyond us to understand in a good way.

So long as we are on this earth as human beings this is the hope that God has given every person.

I found something very special in studying this number. There is a fork in the road. We can choose evil or we can pursue the goodness and love of God. There is a two fold meaning regarding four in Scripture and I am very eager to show this principle to you. There is the evil and the good.

God did not abandon us down here. Jesus Christ offers His love to us in this evil world. We cannot really understand this but we as Christians can experience the love of God in our spirit. I would like to explain this in a little more detail as this article progress.

I almost feel guilty to give you more examples on the number 4 and this world system (evil) because I want to talk about the good and just bypass the bad. You and I both know that life does not resemble this reality. For example, if a movie just shows the good and leaves out the bad then only one side of the story is being told.

In the beginning of the Bible the Holy Spirit starts to categorize this world system into segments of "Fours." After the flood the sons of Noah are always in sets of four on three different occasions.

By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided into their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations." Genesis 10:5. (1) lands; (2) tongues (3) families (4) nations. "These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations." Genesis 10:20. (1) families (2) tongues (3) countries (4) nations. "These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations." Genesis 10:31. (1) families (2) tongues (3)lands (4) nations. This is the repopulation of the world after the flood in "Fours."

This truth goes all the way to the book of Revelation, .."And hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred and tongue, and people, and nation." Revelation 5:9. (1) kindred (2) tongues (3) people (4) nations.

According to the Bible there are four living creatures but they represent those redeemed on this (4) earth. That is why there are "Four." To phrase this another way the focal point of "Redemption" is on planet earth even though they are in heaven.

According to Revelation 4:7 the Bible says, "And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast has a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."

Ezekiel saw the four living creatures in chapter 1; verses 5-10. How is it that Ezekiel and the Apostle John saw the same vision? (1) Lion (2) Calf (3) Man (4) Flying Eagle.

Each of the "4" living creatures in consecutive order matches the "4" gospels from Matthew to John.(1) Lion (Matthew) King of the Jews (2) Calf (Mark) pictures our Savior Jesus Christ as obedient to His Father in heaven; hard working (3) Man (Luke) Jesus Christ was the perfect man. The book of Luke does highlight this feature of our Savior (4) Flying Eagle (John). This seems to picture the heavenly origin of Jesus Christ. His oneness with God the Father. John does indeed highlight this truth many times in his writings. Notice there are "4" gospels because these are the books of the Bible that show Jesus Christ walking on planet earth. Four (World System).

It is very interesting to me that Jesus Christ starts His judgment on planet earth with "Four horses" according to Revelation 6:1-8. (1) White (antichrist) (2) Red (War) (3) Black (Financial ruin) and (4) Pale (the result of the antichrist,war and financial ruin which leads to sickness and a fourth part of the earth with death).

Most people that follow end time Bible prophecy would agree that this world is very close to these four horses. I believe they are getting closer to planet earth every day.

I thank God for His rapture which will take place before this judgment. God offers hope for His children, not wrath.

It would have to be obvious that four is dealing with this world but don't get discouraged because I am going to show you something special regarding the love of God and how it relates to this number in Scripture.

In Daniel chapter 7 he had a dream. The first thing Daniel saw was, ..."The four winds of heaven strove upon the great sea." Daniel 7:2. Winds can only come from four different directions on this earth and the sea in Scripture always symbolizes unrest on planet earth.

The Bible says, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea." Revelation 21:1. Nations will no longer have an opportunity to jostle for power in strife and division.

In Daniel chapter 7 right from the start "4" winds are described in turmoil. The dream in this chapter shows the "4" world powers. (1) Babylon (2) Medo-Persia (3) Greece (4) Rome. Winds, sea, war and power.

God understands there is nothing but strife in this old world. That is why we as Christians are looking for a new heaven and earth which will be perfect. When God does this in the future "4" is still going to be a part of the dimensions because His new earth will be four square. "And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breath: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breath and the height of it are equal." Revelation 21:16.

Notice some of the terms the Apostle John uses as he describes this city of the love of God. Length, breath and height. This is similar to the verse I quoted at the end of Part One. "May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breath, and length, and depth, and height (19) And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Eph.3:18-19. Both passages are referring to the love of God. They are just in a different context. (1) breath (2) length (3) depth (4) height."

"Four" dimensions are incomprehensible. Our minds can understand (1),(2),(3) but when that "Forth" dimension is added we have no real perception. This is exactly why the Bible says, "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge."

This is the wonderful message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are born into this (4) world of sin and corruption with no real knowledge of God. Somebody gives us the precious eternal plan of God through His Son Jesus Christ and we accept Him into our hearts as our very own personal Savior. At that point we passed from the (4) world into the (4) dimensions to comprehend (1) breadth (2) length (3) depth and (4) height of the love of God which we cannot truly understand.

As Christians we can go back to living in the "Four" walls of this world or we can allow God to bring us to the latter meaning of the number four. "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Eph. 3:9.

The choice is up to us. Remember we are destined for a New Jerusalem which will be Four-square. This "Four-square" will be surrounded by the love of God. I personally believe this city may be the capital of Heaven.

Whatever we are doing now should match what we will be actively engaged in for all eternity because this is our destiny.

These "Four" walls that surround us now are just temporary. God has something so much bigger for us. We should say yes to this step of faith so we can know the love of Jesus Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God.

Rejoicing in this wonderful truth of God,

    Biblical Number Four and the World System Part One


    By Brother Bob d.
    This is one of the most exciting subjects I have ever looked into because "Wow" is the only word that comes to my mind. Not because I wrote this but because of the message of hope we have in Jesus Christ!


    The number four clearly has a consistent meaning from Genesis to Revelation of creation or the world system. If you live in the north there are other people living in the south. If you live in the west there are people that exist in the east.

    There are four elements in this world (earth, air, fire, water) and 4 kingdoms (mineral, vegetable, animal and spiritual).

    If there is a wind it is coming from one of 4 directions around the earth either in the (1) morning, (2) noon, (3) evening or (4) night. I believe you are probably starting to see the picture.

    Suppose we are in our home or apartment. In all those rooms there are four walls surrounding us. Since we live in a sinful world the number 4 in the Bible seems to be associated with confinement on planet earth. We truly live in a prison on this earth.

    Jesus Christ is not the God of this world but He is still in perfect control. This is what the Bible teaches. "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ who is the image of God, should shine unto them." 2nd Cor.4.4.

    It's sad that life has to be this way. In fact it is downright depressing but Jesus Christ sees the big picture and He knows exactly what He is doing.

    Notice the verse that I just quoted is using the term ..."god of this world" with a small g, not a big G. This verse is referring to the devil.

    Blinded to the glorious gospel of Christ seals the fate of a person to an even greater predicament in the afterlife.

    What is our existence down here on earth all about from a divine point of view? Coming to know Jesus Christ as our very own personal Savior and abiding in Him on a daily basis.

    Many insightful and rejoicing truths will become evident as you continue reading about this wonderful alternative God gives people in this hopeless world.

    There are verses relative to the number 4 that speak of the love of God and His grace. Some four fold "Descriptions" point to Jesus Christ Himself. We serve a God that cares for us very deeply. He understands we are in the parameter of 4 walls in the Bible. Our Savior desires us to experience His grace which is incomprehensible.

    As you will see God gives one other alternative to the meaning of this very unique number. This is the Love of God in a (4) world that seeks to tear us down. God desires to build us up through His Son Jesus Christ.

    Four has a two fold meaning. The number starts out with four walls (evil); however there is a transcendent part to this subject if a person says "Yes" to Jesus Christ.

    In Revelation chapter 20 (the number of Redemption) verse 2 ( the number of division against God) Satan is given "4" titles. (1) Dragon, (2) Old Serpent, (3) Devil, and (4) Satan. This is the very chapter where Jesus Christ Himself is redeeming planet earth before the start of His millennial reign. Satan divides (verse 2) and "4" titles are ascribed to him in this "World" of bondage. What other combination would work in the way that context was worded?

    The Apostle Paul said in 2nd Cor:4:8-9 that he was (1) troubled (2) perplexed (3) persecuted and (4) cast down. The range of his suffering went into 4 different spheres. He relied upon the Grace of God, peace and mercy were granted to him as he (1) was not distressed (2) was not in despair (3) was not forsaken and (4) was not destroyed.

    This was the strength of God literally working through Paul as he endured these (4) sufferings and sure enough God being faithful worked (4) solutions through his life. He was not bound by the (4) walls of life but was transcended into the (4) dimensions of the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ.
     
    Paul could have chosen the (4) walls of life but chose the (4) dimensions of the love of God. Most people choose the (4) walls of misery but an overcomer in Jesus Christ decides to pursue the love of God especially when hardships take place in our lives.

    If I try to explain this to Unbelievers or even Believers that we serve a good God is difficult because a person has to experience His graciousness through the troubles in this (4) world to understand. Otherwise an individual is just going to say things like, "It is bad" or "These people are horrible" or "I don't know how much more I can take."

    This is why it is true when Christians say, "We have the good news of Jesus Christ." We do live in such an evil world. There is no other answer because Jesus said ..., "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6.

    Romans 8:19-22 says (19)" For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. (20) For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the same in hope (21) because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God (22) For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now."

    Creation and creature go hand in hand. This is mentioned "4" times in "4" different verses right in a row; however, it is never mentioned in any other part of Romans chapter 8. The Holy Spirit is trying to say that Creation and creatures in this present world system is positioned in a set of "4."

    It has been said that everything material in this created universe was finished by the "Fourth" day. On the first day of creation in Genesis chapter 1:3-5 God (1) let (2) saw (3) divided and (4) called.

    As I read through Genesis chapter one which is truly one of the most powerful chapters in the Bible I saw how strong and mighty God is and how weak and helpless I am.

    God is the only one that can act on anything. People are only capable of responding.

    The rapture of the church is an "Act" of God. Are we ready? One must accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior to be part of this glorious event. Titus 2:10. The body of Christ is very close to this blessed hope.

    The city of Damascus is the oldest inhabited place in world history and it has a gematria value of "444." It is a symbol of corruption in this earthly system and the total numerical sum of this city is steeped in 3 "Fours." God is in essence saying this world system we live in is filled with apostasy and "4" is the designated number that He has chosen to represent this corrupt world (4).

    What about the other side? People can choose the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ in (4) dimensions working through their spirit!
    "May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height (19) and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:18-19. (1) breath (2) length (3) depth and (4) height.

    I have really enjoyed a lot of the biblical numeric books in print but I have yet to read one that focuses on the love of God in relation to the number 4.The focus is usually solely on creation and this world.

    The number 4 is very similar to the number 2 in the Bible. Two has a primary meaning of division against God with the possibility of union with God through Jesus Christ. Four has a primary meaning of this world system (the evil) with the possibility of experiencing the love of God (the Good).

    In Part Two one of the things I will get far more detailed on is exactly "Why" (1) breath (2) length (3) depth and (4) height are in a sequence of "Four."

    I was relieved as the Holy Spirit released this comforting truth to me. If you don't know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior God desires you to experience the (1) breath (2) length (3) depth and (4) height of His love toward you.

    I think the question we have to ask ourselves is do we want the corruption of this present world system or the love of God? We have a choice but I think the answer is obvious!

    Until next time. I am looking forward to sharing with you again,

      THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND

      Hi All:
      Everything is well in my world. Gary left today for his week fishing trip to Alaska. Traveling first class and going with big shots. I guess that one of perks of his job. I pray they have a wonderful time. Lee is doing well as I am also. I have just been in deep study. Perilous times are in and I have become a voice of warning. I am now taking names and naming names of the antichrist pastors whether they like it or not. As a Christian you should have just five tenant's of faith. If one is lacking then it is not a church of our Lord Jesus Christ the Word of God, the Son of God, Emmanuel. I even see mature Christians posting about people ministries and I want to cry and say where is your discernment. Hillsong is about to ok the homosexual community to join and become full members of their church regardless of Romans Chapt one. So sad such a vibrant and such a loss to the Kingdom of God. Yet the antichrist spirit works like wild fire. We all have Bible is yours dusty and when is the last time you obeyed your Heavenly Father and studied it? The kingdom of God is at hand and the Church is just like the world or just like it was in the days of Moses Murmuring and complaining about their lot in life. We all suffer, we all get ill, we all run thru the fiery trials but they have been promised to us so we should not shake it. Where is the glory in ones life going.
      Let me give you the five tenant's of our Faith and see how many agree cause you must have them all.
      1. Who is Jesus?
      2. Was He born of a virgin?
      3. Was He Jesus Christ crucified on a cross?
      4. Did Jesus Christ arise again?
      5. Did He Ascend into heaven with the promise to come back and get You?
      Gang that is it in a nut shell. I could give you a list of pastors that do not believe this preach against it yet some here publish and recommend them. I sit back and say God I have loved the gift of prophecy the gift of knowing much of the future the gift of knowing now. I could write and fill this list with pages of what is happening now and what is soon to happen but where would I be. Disliked, ignored, or better yet asked to leave which God may do to many. I will tell you this there is a separation going on right now, Seward know this Janice can ask Him. God is separating the church from the world and many of the world are in the church. We need to quit blaming God jag and thank Him that you are alive and able to make it into the Kingdom of God where you will be whole again as well as the rest of us. People including Dr. make mistakes and if you had bad results from cancer many of us have also we just go on with our life. I have lost the whole tip of my nose and part of the side. But I am alive and Jesus is Rises and coming soon. Get ready. I love you all and this is not personal to anyone just what the Lord said to say. The ecumenical Church does not believe the five tenant's of our faith Rick Warren said he does not even know if Jesus exists, the Mormons say Jesus is Lucifer brother, the JW say Jesus is a prophet, the Muslim say Jesus is a prophet and mention him 28 times in the Koran. Who do you say Jesus Is ???

      Zelma
