All of those details from Ezekiel’s prophecy that were not explained in the Second Temple era, remain sealed until that time when “the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God, as the waters that cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9). In the future, we shall be enlightened with a higher level of spiritual awareness and consciousness, and at that time we will have the ability to perceive the deeper meaning of all those portions of Ezekiel’s vision that had heretofore been inaccessible. Until that time, it is the Second Temple’s attributes that must be upheld when rebuilding the Temple. Most importantly, Israel’s Divine obligation to rebuild the Holy Temple remains a constant and unchanging factor in the nation’s life, throughout every generation.

A new era of universal harmony
Every prophet of Israel, without exception, prophesized that the Temple would be rebuilt, ushering in a new era of universal harmony and peace unparalleled in the history of man. Thus, the “movement” to rebuild the Holy Temple is not new. It was born almost 2,000 years ago, at the moment of the Second Temple’s destruction. For when the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, it was the soul of Jewish people… and the entire world… as we believe it will be once again.
The rebuilding of the Holy Temple: It is happening now?
The reality of the Jewish experience means that the Temple will be rebuilt. Many people who visit the Temple Institute are incredulous and cannot help but exclaim: “Do you really think that you will live to see the Holy Temple rebuilt?” The answer to that question is of little importance. Let us rather recall that Jewish history has a trajectory, which began when the patriarch Abraham smashed his father’s idols. That trajectory has spanned the millennia, and it is obvious that we are rapidly approaching climactic times, in which the Holy Temple will once again become the focal point for mankind’s spiritual focus. Whether this transpires in our generation or not, we can still choose to be active participants, and not simply spectators, in God’s bold plan for the Redemption of Israel and all humanity.
The General Assembly on the anniversary of the 1947 vote on the UN Partition Plan, which recognized Jewish and Arab states west of the Jordan River. Israel accepted the vote, but the Arabs did not, and instead invaded the nascent Jewish state. Despite that fact, the UN marks the day as a day of mourning, and uses it to blast what it calls Israel’s “illegal occupation.”
Isreal must not give up its land but could offer other incentives to resolve the dispute, by exchanging your inheritence for a bowl of soup will definitely be cursed.
