According to this bulletin from the Temple Institute, work has just been completed on the manufacture of the Golden Crown of the High Priest. One of the first objects to be constructed by the Temple Institute was the Golden Crown, but this later version is much more accurate in its design, according to an historical account by the Jewish historian Josephus. The new crown took over a year to construct and cost around $30,000 to make. The Temple Institute is an organization that is working towards the rebuilding of the Temple, and has already made many of the objects that were once used in its service. All the implements are constructed according to methods described in the Torah. The last ceremonial artefact to be completed was the blue Ephod of the High Priest. The Temple Institute noted that work on the Golden Crown of the High Priest was completed just as the Israeli Prime Minister was in attendance at the Annapolis peace conference, offering to divide Jerusalem and hand the Temple Mount over to their enemies.

Quote: "Jewish history, however, does not dance to Ehud Olmert's treacherous tune, and neither does the Temple Institute. The Tzitz, the Golden Crown of the High Priest, fashioned by the craftsmen of the Temple Institute, and ready to be worn by the High Priest in the Holy Temple, has just been completed:
"And make a plate of pure gold, and engrave upon it, like the engravings of a signet: Holy to HaShem... And it will go upon Aaron's forehead...(Exodus 28:36-37)
With gratitude to HaShem, and with thanks to all whose generous support has made this possible, in these dark days of the Annapolis "Peace" Conference, and the cynical disdain being shown by the world's leaders for all that is holy, the Temple Institute is proud to unveil the Golden Crown of the High Priest. May the completion of the Tzitz be seen a sign of the commitment of the Jewish nation and of all those who devote their lives to the G-d of Israel, to the honour of HaShem, and to His holy house, "... a house of prayer for all nations." (Isaiah 57:6)

The above video is presented by Rabbi Chaim Richman, head of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. I wrote an email to him once about the significance of the Red Heifer in relation to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, but unfortunately I got no response. As we can see from today's news, the very fact that preparation is being made for the rebuilding of the Temple shows us just how close we may be to end time events. For the Scriptures state that in the first half of Daniel's 70th week, the Jewish sacrificial system will recommence (Daniel 9:27), and in order for this to happen the Temple must be rebuilt. Daniel mentions that the sacrificial system will be stopped in the middle of the week, and the book of Thessalonians states that the Antichrist will enter the Temple and proclaim himself to be God (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). Rabbi Chaim Richman states that only when the Temple is rebuilt, will there be true peace on earth, when the Shekinah glory rests upon it. Unfortunately there will be no Shekinah glory in this Temple, and the latter half of the week will commence a time of unparalleled suffering for the nation of Israel (Matthew 24:21). Only then will they recognize their Messiah Yeshua, and call upon Him for salvation.

Zechariah 12:10
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Have you called upon Him for salvation? The Bible says now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation (2nd Corinthians 6:2).
