Right from the very begining, the native Jews denied their True Messiah once mentioned of in John 2:19 (Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple (Herod’s Temple), and in three days I will raise it up. Surely, before the Jewish Messiah went back to Heaven, he built the Third Temple after destroying the Herod’s Temple according to John 2:20-22; Luke 24:1-8; Hebrews 8;1-13.
Most of the Native Jews the world over don’t believe that their Messiah already came and so they don’t believe in the New Testament. Nevertheless, in Isaiah 53:1-12 we read about the whole facts that surely the Messiah came and was not received by his own people (the native Jews).
JERUSALEM CITY COUNCILMAN Dr. Meir Margalit had this to say about the Project when reached for Comments:
“This is the right moment to do this?” he asked rhetorically by phone Monday afternoon.
“It is a crazy idea that comes from crazy people. If God really wants a third Jewish temple, he will create it without our help.”
Margalit added that the proposal only stokes more flames in an already raging cauldron of religious acrimony and division within the capital.
“The problem is not what these crazy people say, it’s that a lot of people in Israel and Jerusalem support this kind of idea – even in the Knesset,” he said. “So, this is more proof that we are losing our minds in this country, and that the combination of religion and nationalistic ideology will bring us to a big explosion.”
Moreover, Margalit called those responsible for the initiative “the Jewish version of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
“We have many extremists in this city, and if we don’t stop them we will all collapse together,” he said.

Featuring a website with a three-minute promotional video depicting a digital incarnation of the planned Third Temple, the institute said the site was viewed by over 160,000 people and received over 10,000 shares on Facebook.
Rabbi Chaim Richman, the international director of the institute, said the organization utilized the crowdfunding campaign after initially finding success with YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Today, with the help of the Internet, our message is resonating across the globe.”
