A Palestinian NGO has decried recent Israeli demolitions of homes owned by Palestinians in Al-Quds (occupied East Jerusalem), saying they come as part of an Israeli scheme to expel Palestinians from their land in the holy city.
JOHN A PINKSTON’S COMMENTARY
In Matthew 24: 15, Christ gives us a major clue concerning the rapidly approaching end of this age. The Scripture makes the following statement, “When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,…”
Notice, Christ said that, when you see this come to pass, He continues to say that it signals a time when those who live in Jerusalem and the surrounding area need to evacuate as soon as possible to save their lives.
Some have speculated that this event refers to the action of a spiritual leader of a particular religion. If this were true, then no one would ever be warned, by this prophecy, of their impending danger.
Over the next several months and years, there will be more incidents relating to the Temple Mount. There are several conservative Jewish factions that believe a new temple must be built before the Messiah will come. The book of Ezekiel indicates that Christ will come to a new temple yet to be built.
This article, which has not received any publicity in the US, indicates a heating up of tensions between Israel and her Arab neighbors relating to the Temple Mount. The Jews have felt frustrated for centuries because Jerusalem and the Temple Mount area have been under the direct control of various Muslim entities determined to prevent the Jews from ever occupying the area, known to Muslims as the Dome of the Rock, and to the Jews as the Temple Mount.
We will continue to scour news articles relating to the building of a new temple and the establishment of daily sacrificing by the Jews in Jerusalem. The fact is that it is not necessary to have a brick-and-mortar Temple for the Jews to begin their daily sacrificing. Prior to the Temple being built in Jerusalem, the Ark of the Covenant and the daily sacrifices were carried out in a tent tabernacle located at Shiloh.
Our books, Our Lost National Identity, and Woe Woe Woe And then Armageddon, give insight into the immediate future facing Israel and America as related in the pages of Bible prophecy. This prophecy by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24 would be meaningless if the Jews never started daily sacrificing in Jerusalem. –
