The Jews are Expecting the Rebuilding of the Temple

The Jews know that they are under the Curse and are waiting for the Temple to be rebuilt and the reinstitution of animal sacrifice for the removal of sin. This is best explained by a scenario that took place soon after the Jewish State of Israel was set up.

The Scenario

The scenario went something like this: The Jews are still under the period of the curse. They don't have their Temple and the sacrifices for sins. A reporter interviewed a famous Israeli historian, Israel Eldad. In looking up at the Temple site in answer to the question, "Do your people intend to rebuild the Temple?" Eldad said: "From the time that King David first conquered Jerusalem until Solomon built the Temple, just one generation passed. So will it be with us."

The reporter asked, "Why don't you build the Temple now?"

Eldad replied, "We can't because the Dome of the Rock (Omar's Temple) is on the Temple site."

"Why don't you tear it down?"

Eldad replied, "That would bring on a disastrous war with all of Islam united against us."

The reporter asked, "What are you going to do?"

Eldad replied, "Maybe there will be an earthquake."

The reporter asked, "If you built the Temple, how is it going to function? The High Priesthood came to an end about the second century AD?"

Eldad replied, "Well, we will have to wait for our Messiah. He will have all the answers."

If the Jews had listened to Paul, an apostle to Jesus, in his Epistle to the Hebrews, they would be informed that the Temple that is to be is one not built by hands, that is, the Temple built by hands will never be rebuilt. The Great Pyramid shows that the Ante-chamber, or the Sanctuary, representing the Bab, and the King's Chamber, representing Baha'u'llah, are a blueprint for the re-establishment of the Temple of Moses. As Moses was the Temple (the presence of God), so too are the Bab and Baha'u'llah, being Manifestations of God, representative of the Temple.


The Grand Gallery brings us to two Chambers which represent the re-establishment of the Temple of Moses, consisting of the Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies.[21] In this Temple, the Bab and his Revelation are as the Sanctuary, and Baha'u'llah and His Revelation are as the Holy of Holies. (see Figure 23) These two Manifestations are the Temple not made by hands.

For Christ [Jesus] is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures [symbols] of the true [one]; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us. (Hebrews 9:24)

The Bab is the return of Jesus as the Door (or Gate) and Baha'u'llah as the return of Christ. They are the Temple of the heaven of prophecy that Jesus entered into. [22]
