Dozens of rabbis have gone onto the Temple Mount in an unprecedented visit

Dozens of rabbis visited the Temple Mount recently in order to increase awareness and emphasize the Jewish linkage to this most sacred piece of real estate in Judaism. It was the first time such a large group of rabbis have visited the Temple Mount because of a decision to permit Jewish entry into the Temple Mount if they do so subject to Jewish law restrictions.

The restrictions on visiting the Temple Mount in the past were based on the conclusions that the exact location of the previous temples and the Holy of Holies is unknown, meaning that Jews could unknowingly set foot in forbidden areas.

The unprecedented visit to the Temple Mount by dozens of rabbis recently does indeed draw attention to the significance of this sacred site for the future according to Bible prophecy.

Until a recent visit by dozens of rabbis to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, religious Jewish had been restricted by Jewish law from even setting foot on the most sacred piece of real estate to the Jewish people. Realizing that the Muslim leaders have been calling for thousands of their followers to go onto the Temple Mount to aggressively assert their control over the area, the rabbis have now called for Jews to enter the Temple Mount as well.

As the Jews visit the Temple Mount, it does bring awareness to the site that will play a key role in End Time prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah wrote 2,500 years ago that Jerusalem and in particular the Temple Mount, will be the center of controversy in the Last Days, that's Zechariah 12:2-3.

Zechariah 1:14-16 reveals the Lord's displeasure with those who are arrogantly secure in controlling the Temple Mount, i.e. the Muslim world, and that He will be aggressively possessive of the site where He will one day build His Temple, maybe a day very soon.
