Metal Detectors and World War III

27 07 2017

knifejuly272017

Muslims are literally threatening to blow up the Middle East over metal detectors at the Temple Mount. It started when three terrorists smuggled a sub-machine gun and other weapons onto the Temple Mount. The next day they retrieved them and proceeded to murder two Israeli policemen. The terrorists were killed in the ensuing gun battle with other Israeli police. After all this Israel installed metal detectors to prevent future arms entering the Holy mountain site.

Muslims rioted, demanding the return to the “status quo” before metal detectors. What is missed here is that the metal detectors did not change the status quo. Smuggling arms onto the site was the change. Israel simply wanted to add a layer of security. You cannot enter a mall in Israel without going through a metal detector. This is also true, of course, at the airport, concerts and even the Western Wall plaza. Furthermore, this is especially true at the most revered site in Islam, Mecca.

SAUDIS MAKE MECCA PILGRIMS WEAR ELECTRONIC BRACELETS: In Mecca, Saudi Arabia, there are 5,000 closed-circuit television cameras overseen by a British company, G4S. As a security measure, an electronic bracelet is attached to each of the millions of pilgrims throughout their entire stay in the kingdom, allowing the authorities to monitor them. (Ynet) There are metal detectors also at the Vatican, at Jerusalem’s Western Wall, Westminster and hundreds of other vulnerable sites across the globe. Only Israel is singled out as not being able to protect itself against terrorist murders with preventative security devices. Palestinian leaders in every walk of life continue to condone, teach, honor and promote violence against the Jewish State and then bitterly protest when Israel takes up self-defense measures.

Meanwhile, one response to the metal detectors in Jerusalem was a terrorist attack in central Israel. A 19-year-old Muslim man murdered three Jews at their Friday night family Shabbat meal. He did it to “defend Al Aksa” (a Muslim name for the Temple Mount). He survived and now qualifies for a $3,000 monthly “martyrs” payment from the Palestinian Authority. That PA fund pays out 300 million dollars annually to terrorists in Israeli prisons and their families. Support the Taylor Force Act in Congress.

The monthly salary of approximately $3,000 that the Palestinian Authority will pay to terrorist Omar al-Abed could be a powerful spur to a pending US legislative bill that would slash aid to the PA over its “martyr payments” policy, a leading Middle East expert told The Algemeiner on Tuesday.
“This is definitely going to put wind in the sails of the Taylor Force Act,” said Jonathan Schanzer, an expert on Palestinian politics at the Washington, DC-based Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) think tank.
Named in memory of former US Army officer Taylor Force, who was murdered in a Palestinian terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in March 2016, the act, if passed, will place severe restrictions on American aid money to the PA until it ends both incitement to terrorism and the “martyr payments” policy. prophecynewswatch

Here is another example of the perverse idea of justice in radical Islam:

Pakistani council orders “revenge rape” of 16-year-old girl ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani police have arrested 25 members of an informal village council accused of ordering the rape of a 16-year-old girl as revenge for her brother’s alleged sexual assault of another girl.

Yehovah shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Yehovah, according to my righteousness,
And according to my integrity within me. Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds. My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart. God is a just judge, and God is angry with the wicked every day. Psalm 7:8-11

Our only righteousness is from the blood of the Lamb of God, our Savior, Jesus. Pray for repentance, mercy and salvation for the wicked and pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

‘Annihilate Jews, liberate Al-Aqsa from their filth’

24 07 2017

 

My shocking title quote is consistent with the Friday preachers and imams at Al Aksa mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. However, this imam is an American preacher at a mosque in northern California. His name is Ammar Shahin  aka Shaykh Ammar Shaheen. The link on the picture connects him to faculty/staff of Islamic University of Minnesota. This is from his sermon from last week at his Islamic Center in Davis, California:

 

In it he cited a hadith, according to which the Muslims would fight the Jews on Judgment Day, and prayed to Allah to “liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews” and to “annihilate them down to the very last one,” not sparing any of them. “Oh Allah, make this happen by our hands. Let us play a part in this,” he prayed in the sermon, which was posted on the Davis Masjid YouTube channel. INS Israel National News  (Follow this link for a sub-titled 2 minute video of his comments.)

His sermon is in the context of a new level of terrorism in Israel that started with three terrorists smuggling weapons onto the Temple Mount (including a sub  machine gun) which were used to murder two Israeli policemen who were standing guard at a Muslim entrance to the Mount. Those murdered were actually Druse men, not Jews. Other police chased the three terrorists back onto the Temple Mount where they were all three killed in a firefight. As a result, Israel closed all access for two days to search for any additional weapons. The last time access was closed was in 1969. It was re-opened in 48 hours. New metal detectors were installed which Muslims used as a pretext to start daily riots in which several Palestinians and Israelis died.

This past Friday a terrorist climbed a wall into an Israeli village in the West Bank and murdered three family members celebrating the birth of a new grandchild over Shabbat dinner. The terrorist’s father said he had to do it because of the metal detectors. His mother said she was proud of him.

101 Die at Grand Mosque in Mecca

A picture captures the moment the fatal crane was struck by lightning

A bolt of lightning struck and strong winds toppled a huge crane in Mecca which then fell directly through the roof of the mosque. Now at least 107 have died and more than 278 injured. This tragedy hit on at 11:45 Eastern time on 9-11 as Americans were remembering the terrible attack of 14 years ago.

Photos posted on social media shows the polished tiled floor of the mosque covered in rubble, bodies and pools of blood, and people fleeing the area bleeding and covered in soot.

The tragic incident in Saudi Arabia occurred shortly before the 6:30 pm Friday evening prayer session – one of the busiest times of the week – causing devastation to what is the largest mosque in the world. … Pictures taken before the disaster show the crane being struck by a bolt of lightning and authorities are in little doubt extreme weather was to blame. … The mosque stands at 3.84 million square feet and can hold up to 820,000 worshippers, but this latest renovation will increase it to 4.3 million square feet, allowing it to accommodate up to 2.2 million at a time.

Major Sandstorm in Israel: At the same time, Israel is experiencing one of the worst sandstorms on record for the fourth day from a freak storm that began in Syria. Notice the picture below which would normally have a clear background of the Temple Mount and the Gold Dome which is only a thousand yards or so away. It was taken from a popular photo spot on the Mount of Olives. Below it is a normal view from the same area.

Do these events relate to 9-11, the last day of the Shemitta Year (starts Saturday at sundown), the Fall Feasts (Trumpets begins at sundown Sunday), the fourth blood moon (Sept 28)? Or should they be dismissed as meaningless coincidences? Wow! At the very least, we need to be awake, alert and watching. These are profoundly prophetic times.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that summer is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Matthew 24:29-35

Temple Mount in Focus

We have now entered the countdown to the clash of civilizations over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. With US elections over, much attention will now turn to Jerusalem. But even more specifically, the focus is that 32 disputed acres of flat mountain top where the glorious temple of Solomon stood over 3,000 years ago. Today it is claimed by Islam and administered by the Wakf Muslim religious authority (under Israeli sovereignty). Christians and Jews are not allowed to pray there! This is enforced by Israeli police even though freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Israeli constitution.

The Israel news is narrowing its focus more and more on this tiny hot-spot. Jordan is threatening to end its peace treaty with Israel. Even Egypt is calling for regional deterioration. Of course the Palestinians are calling for an uprising (intifada) to defend the al-Aqsa mosque which occupies the south end of the mount. 

The Lord Jesus gave me a simple illustration of the prophetic timing we have now entered. Israel became a nation in 1948. Viewing this wonderful prophetic restoration through a camera would require a wide-angle lens. The scope was the return of land itself, a modern miracle.

Then, in 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War supernaturally and regained the Old City area of Jerusalem. That camera view would use a normal lens. It was the direct fulfillment of Jesus’ own prophetic words: From 70 AD till June, 1967, Jerusalem was ruled my Gentiles. From that date till now it is under Israeli sovereignty.

And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. Luke 21:24

We have now entered the third and last change of our camera lens. We now need a zoom lens because God’s focus is directly on the temple mount. Recent events are piling up with escalating frequency. One of the more serious was the attempted assassination of a vocal Israeli activist, Yehuda Glick, who was known for praying on the mount defying the ban.

This is even more evidence that we are in the end times. We should react with prayer and enlist as watchmen on the wall for Jerusalem. One thing is certain. God is in control and His purpose will be accomplished. Not one promise He has spoken will fail to come to pass:

Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yehovah your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed. Joshua 23:14

Hamas Flag on Temple Mount

22 04 2014

Hamas flag on Temple MtWhile 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.

For further reading, here are a series of stories in chronological order starting with Passover.

Temple Mount Trauma

10 09 2013

Temple_mountWhile the world’s eyes are on Syria, trouble is brewing at Jerusalem’s holy Temple Mount. Palestinian President Abbas is engaged in “peace talks” while his own Fatah party is calling for a Temple Mount war.

Fatah Declares War over Temple Mount: ‘Green Light’ on Terror: While Fatah head Abbas talks to Israel, Fatah’s armed wing declares war over Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. The Brigade issued a statement Tuesday announcing that it would give the “green light” to terrorist attacks targeting Israelis beginning on Friday. The reason given for the planned resumption of open hostilities was Jewish visits to the Temple Mount, which the group termed, “The invasion of the compound by hordes of settlers, and the harm to [Muslim] worshipers, with no intervention from the international community.”

Urgent Update 9-11-13 Muslim Mufti of Jerusalem calls for “Muslims to come out en masse to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and “protect” it from “the occupation.” Mufti of Jerusalem: Al-Aqsa is in Danger

Last week, a riot broke out on the Mount with Israeli Police needed to disperse the rock throwers. It was all about Muslims objecting to Jews praying on the holy site. A steady effort has been underway for years to deny any Jewish presence or claim to the area, including denying that there ever was a Temple there in history.

Temple Mount: Arabs Pelt Jewish Visitors with Stones: Police forces enter Temple Mount compound immediately after Muslims began throwing rocks at Jewish visitors.

August saw incitement to violence with this bogus claim broadcast on official PA TV:

PA Libel: Israel Using Chemicals to Erode Al-Aqsa: A news story on PA TV accused Israel of using chemicals to erode the foundations of Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to cause it to collapse.

Here is a headline from June.

Muslim Extremists Force Jews From Temple Mount

In June, PA President Abbas proclaimed these words of incitement: PA Chairman accuses Israel of trying to “destroy” the Al-Aqsa Mosque by allowing Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Abbas

In spite of the Arab Spring in Syria, Egypt and elsewhere, the predetermined plan is a Muslim confederacy attacking Israel, Jerusalem and especially the Temple Mount in exact conformity to the Psalm 83 War prophecy. They hate Yehovah, the God of Israel and are attempting to erase the name of Israel from remembrance.

They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You. Psalm 83: 4-5
