About two to four years Once church leadership announces the construction of a temple, it typically takes two to four years to complete. The time required for building a temple varies depending on the size of the site needed and the complexity of the structure.
In Jerusalem there are six temples. Of these six temples, three were built within two centuries after the birth of Christ. The other three were built over a period of nearly 500 years. This shows that the Lord has been faithful to keep his promises to his children, even though they may have missed some opportunities to make sacrifices in order to build their own temples.
Today's Church leaders have promised that we will always have a place where we can go and pray to God and seek his help and guidance. They have also said that if we work hard at keeping the commandments then God will always let us know when it is time to build a temple.
So we can assume that it will not be very long before people are again able to make sacrifices and go to Jerusalem to offer prayers at the new temple that President Nelson has promised will be built.
Believe it or not, the temple's construction lasted nine years, from 447 to 438 BC, which is incredible considering the conditions. The pedimental sculptures were completed six years later, in 432 BC. As a result, the builders and sculptors completed the project in in 15 years.
The Acropolis is an ancient Greek term referring to the high rock that surrounds the city of Athens. Located on top of this rock are the great temples of Athena Polias ("Protective Athena"). They are known as the Propylaea, and they are the two monumental entrance gates to the sacred area where the temples are located. A third gate was added by Lysikrates in 450 B.C., when more security was needed because of the growing number of visitors to the site.
Athena Polias was born around 1150 B.C. from her father Zeus' head, with a thunderbolt in one hand and a spear in the other. She was also called Outrageous, without rival for beauty. According to myth, she took off her clothes to wrestle with Poseidon for the honor of marrying him, but lost. Enraged, he pushed her into a deep sleep that turned into immortality. It is said that once in every ten years, she can be awakened by prayer from any part of the world.
In 493 B.C., the Athenians asked Athena to protect them in their battle with Sparta.
As a result, the king writes, "Let the Israelites build their God's temple." And I command you to assist them. 'The temple is built in roughly four years, and the Israelites are overjoyed. Many more years go by. The temple has already been completed for over 48 years.
The Bible does not say how many years it took the Israelites to build the temple but estimates range from 10 to 30 years. The time it takes to build a temple was probably similar to that which we experience today in Saudi Arabia where building projects can be finished in a few years. However, due to government restrictions and the need for further development of the country, new projects start every year which means that the total number of years that have passed since the first project was started cannot be estimated with certainty.
When the Israelites finally stop work on the temple, an enemy named Nebuchadnezzar attacks and destroys most of the buildings including the temple. But the temple is rebuilt within five years from scratch! Through inspiration from God, King Cyrus of Persia allows the Jews to return to their homeland and rebuild the temple. This happens in 536 B.C. Once again the Israelites are joyous and offer sacrifices to God.
In short, the temple cost hundreds of thousands of dollars back then and it took the Israelites about four years to build it.
It might take anything from one to four years to build your own church. The preparation procedure should not be sped up or slowed down. Keep in mind that the more you rush through this process, the less likely it is that you will have a quality building when it's all said and done.
The first thing you need to do is decide what type of structure you want for your church. This will determine how long it will take to build it. There are three main types of churches: traditional, contemporary, and modular. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. It's best to pick one and stick with it as you grow.
Traditional churches feature a high roof with sloping sides. They are hall-like structures with large open spaces for gatherings. These churches usually have a nave and a sanctuary. The nave is where we go for worship and prayer; the sanctuary is where the pastor lives and leads services. Traditional churches can be built out of wood or brick, but they most often use wood because they are expected to last for many years without any major maintenance work.
Contemporary churches look similar to traditional ones, but instead of a high roof they have a flat or slightly sloped ceiling.
