The big news of the day is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is contemplating opening up all the Gates of Jerusalem to the Temple Mount, and allow prayers and putting on phylacteries on Shabbat and during the Jewish holidays.

Big news only because when Jews pray here the world is reminded that it was on Mount Moriah that Abraham intended to sacrifice his son, the Temple stood, and Jesus is coming back.

It is also another sign of the (end) times in which we live. So when Israel’s new Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir visits the Mount just days after being appointed to the cabinet, the whole world goes crazy and the UN calls an “emergency” session. Oh yea, and rockets start flying from Gaza.

Seriously? One can only imagine what will happen when the Messiah walks up the Holy Mountain through the Golden Gate!? A lot of shaking, I say. (see Haggai 2 below)

Meanwhile, various Temple Mount movements, some...

    Shalom David,

    What is the issue? Whenever any Jewish person stands up the the Muslim Jew Hating world, (Not all Muslims) they are roundly criticized, hats off to Ben Gvir, a real Man and Patriot in Yisrael!

    Make no mistake, World war three is coming and Yisrael will be victorious through the Hands of Avinu!

  2. Jürgen Buschhardt says:

    Wundervoll ich freue mich für Israel für das Volk und für die jetzige Regierung das sie endlich Klarheit schaffen, auf Gott vertrauen und seinem Wort dann kann kommen was will:I love Israel

  3. David Adeola says:

    Isaiah 62:1 (ESV)
    [1] For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
    and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
    until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch.

  4. Robert's World says:

    There is a lot of impact in praying with sincerity Yeshua’s directive:
    “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done!”

    The Bible is clear about God’s Kingdom and his will for the Jews.

  5. Robert Barbour says:

    Satan is raging as his time is getting shorter. One day the kings of the earth and the great men and the mighty man and every bond man and every free man will hide themselves in the rocks and mountains crying, save us from Him that sits on the Throne for the great day of His wrath is come and who shall be able to stand.

  6. Jesse Ramo says:

    Psalms 2:1-4
    Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
    The Kings of the earth take their stand and rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.
    “Let us break their chains,”they say, “and throw off their fetters.”
    The One enthroned in Heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
