But seriously, if even a majority of 2 billion Christians REALLY wanted to rebuild the temple, don't you think it would've happened by now?


Not if GOD didn't plan such a thing. Heaven (spirit) rules Earth (matter).

But from what the bible says, the third temple is flesh and blood, not stone and mortar. So, in reality, it has been built...and is continuously being built anew in each soul, one at a time.

Since non-messianic Jews do not read the New Testament, then they are unaware of the meaning of Jesus' words regarding the temple. Although, it is not something exclusive to the NT - it is certainly hinted at in the books of the OT prophets...to the effect of 'I will put my spirit in them.'

It's perhaps too metaphysical to be a valid group tenet in any religion; however it does often surprise me that the Kabbalists have not seemed to pick up on it.

You are so on the money there. God wanted the Temple to be built so that the Children of Israel would keep him in their hearts. Unfortunately, they kept the TEMPLE in their hearts, so it became a form of idolatry. As we are made in His own image, how much better can we be at honoring Him than a mute stone edifice? I do not believe that a new "house of stone" is what God wants at all.

So are you! I have not heard anyone state that understanding besides myself.
