A Blessing on the Temple Mount

posted by jfletcher

When my son and I visited Israel over the summer, we visited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Since the Muslim wakf is in charge of the area, they frown on non-Muslims praying or reading their Bibles. I was actually ushered away from the interior of the famed Golden Gate…I don’t know what I was doing wrong but an armed security guard yelled at me!

However, we managed to face the Mount of Olives on the east—the biblical scene of the Messiah’s return in the end of days. We prayed together facing the Mount of Olives. It was very meaningful!

Bottom line is this: there are those of us who actually believe the Bible is true and we eagerly anticipate the Creator renewing creation. It will happen, and to see the actual sites…wow.

    The apartheid that many Muslim countries are trying to stick to Israel is actually practiced in Israel ONLY by the Muslims who follow the Koranic teachings that Jews and Christians are dhimmis (less valuable than Muslims).

    Therefore the experience of Temple Mount is a good example what the future Palestinian state would look like: Juden frei and dhimmis Christians.

Bradley Scott's shout-out to the White House, silent so far about the kidnapping of three Israeli youth this week, could also be directed at an audience formerly supportive of Israel: American Christian leaders. Response from American "Christian Palestinianists" to the kidnappings this week by Ha

All in Good Fun?
One of the primary sources of hope in our world today is the marvelous example of predictive prophecy in the Bible. Contrary to the view of some Christian leaders in America—who like to marginalize Bible prophecy teaching—the Bible is loaded with such examples. From epic, sweeping prophecies

A Single Human Being
Memorial Day. Remembering the dead is always poignant. Those of us of a certain generation are emotional at the site of American flags on display in military cemeteries. Decorating family graves is bittersweet. Remembering those who gave their lives protecting us is no small matter. I think of al
