Third Temple on its way

According to the Vilna Gaon, construction of the Third Temple will start, God willing, on March 16, 2010, which just happens to be the first day of the Jewish month of Nissan this year.
If the 18th-century rabbinic authority the Vilna Gaon was right, on March 16, 2010, construction will begin on the third Temple. His projection states that the auspicious day will coincide with the third completion of the Hurva Synagogue in Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter.

The great day is at hand: On March 15, the reconstructed Hurva Synagogue, considered the most important house of prayer in Jerusalem will be rededicated. It was last destroyed in the War of Independence.
Based on the rest of the article, I have to wonder what kind of hat the Messiah will wear....

A synagogue is a synagogue and not a museum. And by the way, both Rav Kook and Rav Nebenzahl are intimately connected to the National Religious community (something Haaretz would never tell you).

The Vilna Gaon was a seer? If he turned out to be right. Haredi Jewry should repent for opposing Zionism. A Jewish State and the rebuilding of the Temple would all be part of G-d's will. I do believe for the record the Temple will be rebuilt though I have no expectation of seeing it happen in my lifetime. Neverthless, I would like to see the Gaon's prediction come true.

I am confused. The Third Temple. One was temple of Soloman. Two was Built after Prophet Nehemiah when the people who remembered the old temple and cried. Did that one really last until the Roman's Occupied?

Also, Does not the Scripture state the temple was seen to come down from heaven? If so, am really confused as to how this could be any kind of human event. And what of the water that flows from the south of the altar. What does this signify?
