The Temple described to Ezekiel in the vision has never been built. The There are jews who believe it will be built by the Messiah when he comes (they are right but they don’t know it’s Jesus)! The Temple Institute has constructed the temple walls and all of the instruments and is awaiting access to the temple Mount. Some “end timers” believe that the building of the Temple will happen just prior to the return of Christ.
