A few of the sources are:
Zohar based on Chagai 2:9 גָּדוֹל יִהְיֶה כְּבוֹד הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה הָאַחֲרוֹן, מִן-הָרִאשׁוֹן says that the third Bais haMikdash will be built by Hashem.
Yalkut Shimoni Tehilim 848 on Tehilim 93:5 עֵדֹתֶיךָ, נֶאֶמְנוּ מְאֹד--לְבֵיתְךָ נַאֲוָה-קֹדֶשׁ: ה', לְאֹרֶךְ יָמִים explains that when the house of Hashem will be built by Hashem then it will last forever.
