All they wait for now, is permission. Will President Trump give it upon re-election?
That would give Israel 3 1/2 (half a Shemittah) years to build the Temple complex and be completed by the 7th year (Shemittah) of 2024, marking exactly 7 years since President Trump fulfilled prophecy by acknowledging Israel's claim to Jerusalem in making it their capital city and moving the US embassy there. It will also be 7 years since Jewish Sanhedrin sent requests to both President Trump and Putin to support this effort in building their Temple.
Remember that the Shemittah or number 7, is a very sacred number to the Jews. It is God's number. This would also match the 2024 mark that ends the Tribulations and the beginning of the Great Tribulations as well as the mid-point of the two rare solar eclipses that are 7 years apart. Only time will tell.
Here is a fly-through of what the Temple in Jerusalem will look like:
Taken from the article as linked above:
Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of The Temple Institute noted that one of his organization's key aims is to educate Jews about the centrality of the Temple to Judaism, after nearly 2,000 years without it.
"One third of all Torah commandments pertain to the building of and service in the Holy Temple, "Rabbi Richman noted." Today, we not only mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples, but also our inability to fulfill one third of the Torah.
Over the last three decades, the Temple Institute has done everything in our power to research and prepare for the Third Temple. As world Jewry sits on the ground mourning the first two Temples, we have taken a huge leap towards the rebuilding, by releasing a 3D architectural rendition of the Third Temple."
The Temple Institute is the center of research and preparation for the Holy Temple. In addition to educational activity focused on the centrality of the Temple Mount and Holy Temple, the Institute have also recreated over 70 sacred vessels for use in the Third Holy Temple, which can be seen at their Visitors Center in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Concerning the preparations for the Temple service, the Sanhedrin has taken steps necessary for reinstating future Temple service. One project of the group has been the planting of the Biblical Temple forest which will serve the agricultural needs of the Third Temple. Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, explained that the Temple provided a link between the land and the Divine: “When people think about sacrifices, they think about animals and blood, but most were from plants grown around Israel.”
Rabbi Richman, also a member of the Sanhedrin, has been heading a project to restore the sacred Red Heifer to Israel. According to Numbers 19, the ashes of the Red Heifer mixed with water are a necessary element for purifying Jews to enable them to do service in the Temple. During the time of the First and Second Temples, a span of approximately 1,000 years, only nine Red Heifers were used in preparing the waters used to purify Jews. According to Jewish tradition, the tenth one will be used by the Messiah. Richman and other rabbis of the Temple Institute are providing halachic supervision and guidance in partnership with an Israeli cattleman who is an expert in the science of animal husbandry. He is utilizing the technique of implanting the frozen embryos of the Red Angus cattle, which originally come from North America, into Israeli domestic cattle. A red heifer cannot be transported to Israel for use in the Red Heifer ceremony, because the animal cannot have ever worn a yoke and must be born in the Land of Israel. The project is the culmination of years of research at the Temple Institute that fuses ancient religious texts and modern science.

A Note: The Jewish people believe that once the 10th red heifer is sacrificed on the Mount of Olives, Christ will come. We believe it will more likely usher in the Tribulations which last for 3.5 years then the Great Tribulations for 3.5 years, then Christ comes. Nine perfect red heifers have been sacrificed so far throughout the last few thousand years. If this red heifer in the video proves next year to be perfect and meet all the specification (no blemish, perfectly red, no yoke, no defect, etc.) then it could be the 10th.
The Sanhedrin and the Temple Movement also hold reenactments of Temple ceremonies for the training of those who are from the priestly class known as Kohanim. This training involves special schooling on the duties of the priests, the use of ritual vessels created for use in the Third Temple, and practice on a newly constructed altar of burnt offering. This altar is unique because it was designed to be disassembled and quickly reassembled in its proper permanent location, because the people of Israel are required to build an altar exclusively on the site of the original altar on Mount Moriah, the Temple Mount. When the time is right, it will be re-assembled on the Mount in the Temple, enabling the sacrificial service to be resumed without delay.
Another recent rediscovery of the Temple Institute has been the revival of the science of producing biblical crimson. This dye was used in the garments of the High Priest, the parochet (the massive curtain that separated the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place in the Temple), and was an ingredient used in the mixture combined with ashes of the Red Heifer. Professor Zohar Amar of Bar Ilan University discovered that the eggs of the tola’at shani (crimson worm) found in modern Israel would produce the crimson dye.
