Daniel's 70 Week Prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27) makes it clear that sacrificial offerings at the Temple will once again be in place during the Tribulation Period (also known as the Time Of Jacob's Trouble).
The prophet Zechariah also mentions God's promise to have His house - the temple - rebuilt (Zech. 1:16, 6:12).
2 Thessalonians 2:4 reconfirms the existence of the Temple during the End Times, in fact reconfirming the Old Testament Dan. 9:24-27 prophecy where a false messiah will set himself up as ruler and then there will be "An Abomination Of Desolation" once again inside the temple.
One Step Closer to the Holy Temple: On the evening of Tuesday, August 20th, 2013, the 14th day of Elul, 5773, the Temple Institute, in cooperation with Mishmeret Kehunah (the Organization for the Renewal of the Priestly Shifts) and other Temple organizations inaugurated a new school dedicated to teaching Kohanim the 'lost' art of performing the daily Tamid service in the Holy Temple. That evening, for the first time since the destruction of the Holy Temple, a historic practice drill of the daily Tamid offering was reenacted by a group of contemporary kohanim-in-training.

Jews in the town of Mitzpe Yericho are taking practical steps to prepare for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem, by preparing descendents of Cohanim (priests) and Levite's for service. At the Mitzpe Yericho school, Temple priest hopefuls learn exactly how to conduct the daily Temple service and offer the required sacrifices.
Today is really a historical event for the Jewish people,” organizer Levi Chazan said as another part of the school was completed. “It is the beginning of the work for the Third Temple.”
The school will include an exact replica of the Temple. The latest addition to the replica was the area in which priests offered wine and water libations. The water offering was traditionally given on the Sukkot holiday, which was celebrated last week.

The world's largest model of the Holy Temple was inaugurated Wednesday only a few hundred meters away from the Temple Mount, the site where the Temple existed up until 70 CE. The model,built at a scale of 1:60, was built by Michael Osanis for the Aish HaTorah Yeshiva in Jerusalem's old city, and is displayed on the roof of its new museum, which at seven stories above the Western Wall plaza has a breathtaking view of the Temple Mount.

During Thursday's (July 30-2009) ceremony, which took place in Mitzpe Yericho just east of Jerusalem, the Temple Institute laid the cornerstone for the altar and demonstrated how tar will be used to cement the stones together. The Institute plans on bringing the altar to its proper place on the Temple Mount when the Temple is rebuilt.

A new Jewish interfaith group has launched a project to diffuse religious strife by showing that the end of times vision of the Jewish people, a temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, could be fulfilled without destroying the Islamic Dome of the Rock. Yoav Frankel, director of the initiative, believes that the Jewish temple can be built alongside the Dome of the Rock and this would transform the Temple Mount from a place of contention to a place of worship shared by Jews, Moslems, and Christians.

This week (6-4-2009) the Temple Institute unveiled its latest achievement in its efforts to prepare Israel and the world for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem: Two golden frankincense vessels have been created. The two vessels, known in Hebrew as bezichin, are described in Exodus 25:29, where they are translated in English as "spoons." Their purpose is further described in Leviticus 24:5-7: "And you shall take fine flour and bake it [into] twelve loaves. Each loaf shall be [made from] two tenths [of an ephah of flour]. And you place them in two stacks, six in each stack, upon the pure table, before HaShem. And you shall place pure frankincense alongside each stack, and it shall be a reminder for the bread, a fire offering to HaShem." The bezichin are the vessels into which the frankincense was placed and then set upon the table of the showbread. These two small implements, (each of the new vessels is made from 150 grams of 14 carat gold), play an essential role in the showbread service which took place in the Kodesh Sanctuary of the Holy Temple.

The Hakhel ceremony also featured the unveiling of the just-completed Kiyor HaNechoshet, the water source to be used for washing by the Priests several times a day. Built to replicate the Kiyor used in the Holy Temple, it is about nine feet high, weighs two tons, and is made mostly of copper. It comes complete with a computerized system that enables heated water to be used on weekdays, and non-heated water on Sabbaths and festivals, when heating the water is not permitted. Twelve priests can wash their hands and feet at once; each one presses one of two buttons to indicate whether he wants a large amount of water, such as after completing preparing an animal offering, or a small amount to merely purify his hands and feet.
The kiyor was built by Moshe Buchbut, a budding Torah scholar and a member of the family that owns Buchbut Metal Industries in the city of Akko (Acre). He repeated his explanations countless times to the many excited visitors who asked how he built it and how it works. The Buchbut's decided to build the kiyor during the Second Lebanon War. "From the moment we made the decision," a family spokesman said, "we have been blessed, both in terms of Katyushas that seemed to stop hitting us during the war, and financially."
The actual faucets are expected to be installed in the coming weeks. The kiyor is now standing in a plaza in the Jewish Quarter, and is expected to be placed inside a protective glass container, as is the Temple Institute's Menorah. It had been hoped that the kiyor would be placed in the Western Wall Plaza, but this will apparently not occur in the near future.
A short film describing the Simchat Beit HaShoevah water pouring festival - a mainstay of the Sukkot ceremonies in the Holy Temple - was also screened. The film was prepared, as were the Temple vessels and clothing, by the Temple Institute.
Rabbi Glick explained that though the vessels were prepared in fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to fashion them - "we even recited the blessing 'He Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to fashion the tzitz [Priestly headplate],' for instance" - the vessels have not been consecrated to the Holy Temple and may therefore be used for other purposes, such as education.

As the Jewish People continue their national return to their ancestral homeland, tailors at the Temple Institute in Jerusalem’s Old City began taking measurements of Kohanim (the priestly tribe designated to run the Temple services) earlier this month in anticipation of an even bigger event -- the dedication of the Third Temple.
Yehuda Glick, director of the Temple Institute, presided over the first-ever fitting of Kohanim for their priestly garments. “Today, in this room, Kohanim are being measured for the first time in 2,000 years for the type of garments they will be wearing in the rebuilt Temple," announced Glick to an audience of rabbis, reporters and cameramen on hand to witness the historic event.
The garments of the Kohanim are described in great detail in the Torah. While scale models of the future Temple can be seen in shop windows and the clothes of the Priesthood can be seen hanging on mannequins, the event marked the first time since the destruction of the Second Temple that real-life Kohanim have been measured for the clothing of their holy work in the Temple.

On the seventh night of Chanukah, (Tevet 2/December 10), The Temple Institute hosted a gala dedication ceremony honoring the golden menorah in its new, (temporary), location overlooking the Temple Mount. The proceedings began, appropriately, at the Wohl Herodian Museum, an actual archaeological restoration of a second Temple priest's residence, where, following evening prayer, Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute lit the chanukia, and Mica Harrari performed briefly on the King David's Lyre, a recent addition to the Institute's collection of Temple vessels and musical instruments.

The Sanhedrin's Decision Regarding the Holy Temple, the Temple Mount, and Jerusalem
The Sanhedrin calls upon all groups who work in the area of Temple and Temple Mount-related research and activity, to begin to prepare detailed architectural plans for the construction of the Holy Temple, towards the goal of its establishment in its proper place.
The Sanhedrin will establish a forum of architects and engineers whose goal will be to implement this decision, so that detailed working plans are effectively brought to an operational stage.
The Sanhedrin calls upon the Jewish people to contribute towards the acquisition of materials for the purpose of rebuilding the Holy Temple; the gathering and preparation of prefabricated, disassembled portions of this building to be stored and ready for rapid assembly, in the manner of King David. These contributions will be consider "chulin," i.e., non-sacred, for the purpose of the planning and construction of the Temple.

There is a tradition found in Mishnah Torah: Hilchot Melachim (Laws Concerning Kings), that the Messiah Himself will oversee the rebuilding of the Temple. If this occurs it will probably be the rebuilding of the temple that is damaged or destroyed during the tribulation period, possible during the Battle of Armageddon.
Zechariah 6:12-13 also supports the idea behind the Messiah rebuilding a temple during His rule as King of all Kings here on earth.
After the first temple was built on its predetermined site on Mt. Moriah (Temple Mount) in Jerusalem, that site is the exclusive location for the sanctuary and the offering of sacrifices.(1)
The following prayer from the Amidah calling for the temple to be rebuilt so sacrifices can resume is said daily by orthodox Jews:
"Be favorable, Hashem, our God, toward Your people Israel and their prayer and restore the service to the Holy of Holies of Your Temple."(2)
