While we were enjoying Passover and Resurrection Day here in the United States, something very sinister was happening in Jerusalem, Israel. The Hamas terrorist entity from Gaza effectively took over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, even flying their Islamic Hamas flag on the Mount itself.
For over a week now, the escalating situation has seen several riots with at least two Israeli police injured. Young Hamas radicals barricaded themselves inside the grey-domed al-Aqsa mosque. Inside the mosque, they were also stockpiling rocks and chunks of broken concrete which they used to attack non-Muslims. They even hurled rocks and molotov cocktails down on Jews praying at the Western Wall. Israel has been impotent to put an end to it “for fear of offending Muslim sensibilities”.
My view is that things will continue to boil up and over. With the failure of Kerry’s peace effort and the ultimate failure of the 20 year Oslo Accords, the Palestinians are preparing a major eruption of violence. In earlier posts I mentioned two scenarios for the “huge event” that may be associated with the tetrad of four blood moon eclipses that began on Passover and continue this Fall on the Feast of Tabernacles. They conclude with one on Passover 2015 and Tabernacles 2015.
Israel became a nation just before a tetrad in 1949-50 and regained Jerusalem in the next one in 1967-68. If you see those events through a camera lens you start with a wide-angle view of the whole country and then a narrower view of just Jerusalem. That suggests that the narrowing focus may now be on the Temple Mount. I offer this for you prayer and consideration as watchmen on the wall.
