The Nascent Sanhedrin recommended a high priest should Jews be able to access the Temple Mount for Yom Kippur.
The group selected Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next high priest. However, Kahane declined the nomination, according to recent reports.
"We do not need a miraculous occurrence like the sudden appearance of a Temple descending from heaven onto the Temple Mount to make this decision relevant," Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, told Breaking Israel News.
"The only obstacle preventing the Temple service today is the political issue. If that should suddenly change, as it very well could, we would be required to begin the Temple service immediately. It is therefore necessary that we have a candidate prepared to fill the role of the high priest, especially now that we have kohanim prepared to serve in the Temple."
Earlier this year, the Temple Institute announced a search for a select group of male kohanim, members of the Jewish priestly class, qualified to perform animal sacrifices, including the slaying and burning of a red heifer, Charisma News previously reported.
Then, this month, a new report emerged that the Temple Institute, which is dedicated to re-establishing the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and in keeping its memory alive, announced it is opening a school for training Levitical priests for their eventual service in a new temple.
It appears as though the world is rapidly approaching the Revelation 11 prophecy.
