What will be of all those karbonos (“sacrifices”) that were missed during the last nearly 2,000 years since we don’t have the Beis Hamikdash?
R’ Tzvi Elimelech of Dinov in his sefer Derech Pikudecha writes that when the Third Beis Hamikdash is built, one will be required to bring all the karbonos that he is obligated in which he was unable to bring while the Beis Hamikdash wasn’t yet built. This also applies to karbonos tzibur. This explains the wording in Mussafאת מוסף יום השבת הזה נעשה ונקריב לפניך, the additional-offering of this Shabbos (or a specific Yom Tov) we will perform and offer before You, as the word הזה seems problematic because we don’t have the Beis Hamikdash at this present time. The answer is that we will need to bring the Karbon Mussaf of this Shabbos when the Beis Hamikdash is built.
In his sefer Bnei Yissaschar, R’ Tzvi Elimelech of Dinov writes that after the building of the Third Beis Hamikdash, when the first Rosh Chodesh Nissan arrives, all of the missed Rosh Chodesh Nissan Korbanos Mussafim will be offered. The same will be with the missed Karbonos for Shabbos. For example, on Shabbos Parashas Naso, all the missed Korbanos Mussafim of Shabbos Naso will be offered.
There is no need to wonder where all the animals for those make-up sacrifices will come from (more than 25,000 missed Rosh Chodashim!) because we have already been told that the animals will gather for that purpose as it saysכל צאן קדר יקבצו לך…, all the flocks of Kedar will be gathered unto you…
