Jewish Priests Fitted for Service in Future Jerusalem Temple

Curt Here....

The article listed below details a very interesting event that took place the other day in Jerusalem. You see Jewish Rabbi's got fitted with priestly holy garments. These garments have very specific specifications and this is the first time in over 2000 years that such garments have been made.

Why are they doing this now and what does it mean? I am not completely sure, but it appears as if the road towards the construction of the Third Temple is one step closer.

There is a second link at the end of the article that takes you to pictures of this event along with a video. I would encourage all to watch.

These are amazing times. Stay tuned.

Jewish priests fitted for service in future Jerusalem Temple

Confident that Israel's Temple to the Almighty will be rebuilt atop Jerusalem's Temple Mount in the very near future, the Temple Institute this month began fitting Jews from the biblical priestly tribe for their holy garments.

The Bible describes a very specific set of garments to be warn by members of the priestly tribe when they are serving in the Temple. This month's fitting was the first time since the destruction of the Second Temple over 2,000 years ago that potential Jewish priests had been measured for such garments.

Following the fitting, each potential future priest was presented with a set of garments matching the biblical description. When the Temple is rebuilt, a fresh set of garments will need to be made for each priest, as they can only be used in the Temple.

The Temple Institute has for decades been involved in preparing the various garments, instruments and other items needed to dedicate what is known as the Third Temple. Most Jews and Christians believe the Third Temple will be built atop the Temple Mount - today occupied by Islamic mosques - prior the coming of Messiah and the establishment of his direct reign over the earth.
