Readers will notice that this article was written before the event took place (because I will be away from my computer for a week).
Last week, a friend sent me a recent copy of The Temple Mount & Land of Israel Faithful Movement newsletter (www.templemountfaithful.org).
This group was founded by Gershon Salomon, an IDF officer that participated in the capture of East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount during Israel’s Six-Day War.
Mr. Salomon’s group is committed to rebuilding the third Temple on the Temple Mount.
They conduct an annual march to the Temple Mount to call attention to their cause.
On Sept. 26, 2018, Mr. Salomon’s group plans to march to the Temple Mount for some of the following reasons:
One, to celebrate the fact that King David established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and King Solomon built the first Temple in Jerusalem more than 3,000 years ago.
Two, to thank God for fulfilling the Scriptures and making Jerusalem the capital of Israel again.
Three, to remind people that the prophets said that the Temple will be rebuilt during the end times and they believe that the events that are taking place are signs that the end times are here.
Four, to remind the world that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel before many of the nations that exist today came into being and that the Temple Mount, the city of Jerusalem, and all of modern Israel are within the boundaries of the land that God promised to Abraham and the children of Israel.
Five, to tell the world that God restored the nation of Israel 70 years ago to fulfill His covenant in the generation that is alive now.
Six, to thank God for redeeming the Jewish people and the Holy Land.
Seven, to thank God for letting the Jews return to the Promised Land.
Eight, to promise faithfulness in their efforts to rebuild the Temple in this generation.
Nine, to tell the world that the God of Israel has brought His people back to the Temple Mount, to Jerusalem and to the Land of Israel, and from that place they will never be exiled or taken away again.
Consider what has been said in light of the fact that some prophecy teachers expect the Temple to be rebuilt after the Rapture, the Antichrist to defile it, and the Jews to abandon it for the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation Period.
A second event concerns the announcement that Amazon.com, Inc. is thinking about opening 3,000 Amazon Go stores.
Shoppers will have an app in their smartphone that can be scanned as they enter the store.
Cash, cashiers, cash registers, cards, card scanners and lines will be obsolete.
Customers will be automatically billed when they go out the door.
If an app in a cellphone will work, then the right kind of Mark in a person’s forehead or right hand will work; and the next step may be to compel people to take it.
A third interesting event concerns some recent comments by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
He said, “Global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.”
He added that, “The generation being born now… is the last free generation.”
Fourth, the Bible doesn’t say it, but many prophecy teachers believe the Jews will flee to a place called Petra at the middle of the Tribulation Period.
A good friend sent me a link to a 14-minute video on Petra; and it is the best I have seen. It is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK1bwnqXvX4&feature=youtu.be
Finally, a reader has asked me to exhort the saints that read this to pray that God will use the upcoming election to implement righteous governance in America.
I can’t write on everything people ask me to write on, but I totally agree that we need a lot of people praying about our government and the upcoming elections.
No less than Dr. James Dobson, founder of the James Dobson Family Institute and Family Talk Radio, has written that “Powerful social movements and passions are ‘blowing in the wind,’ and most of them have dangerous implications for the institution of the family, religious liberty, our children and unborn babies, and the country at large.”
Did you get that? An influential, highly respected Christian is warning that the next election has dangerous implications for our family, religious freedom, children, etc.
Make no mistake about it: hundreds of millions of dollars are being funneled to socialists and powerful social movements that want to bring down the U.S. and replace it with a world government.
The future of this generation’s children and grandchildren should be a major concern for every Christian.
