Israeli PM Ehud Olmert meets with Jordanian King Abdullah to discuss dividing Jerusalem

In a meeting between Israeli PM Ehud Olmert and Jordanian King Abdullah, quickly arranged before the arrival of US President George Bush in the Middle East, these two Middle Eastern leaders discussed a number of issues, but key among them was the division of the city of Jerusalem.

Prior to the 1967 Six Day War, Jordan controlled the city of Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and with Olmert's proposal to divide Jerusalem as a means of advancing the peace process, the king told Olmert he had to stand up to the commitments he made in the past and begin to make public statements regarding the division of Jerusalem.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A Jewish leader of Israel willing to divide the city of Jerusalem to advance the peace process will do the exact opposite according to Bible prophecy.

Israeli PM Olmert has, in private meetings, suggested to the Palestinians that he might be ready to re-divide the city of Jerusalem if it will indeed advance the political process. This information leaked to the body politic of Israel, caused a major political uproar and put in place a coalition of political and religious groups that oppose any kind of Jerusalem. In their recent meeting in Jordan, PM Olmert and King Abdullah discussed this issue with Jordan's king encouraging Olmert to move forward with his plan which according to Bible prophecy, will have the opposite effect that the two leaders desire.

Twenty-five hundred years ago, Zechariah, the ancient Jewish prophet, wrote that the ones controlling the Temple Mount in Jerusalem would actually make the Lord angry with their arrogant misuse of this sacred piece of real estate, Zechariah 1:15. The Lord's plan for Jerusalem and the Temple Mount calls for a unified city under Jewish control in the future, Zechariah 1:16, 6:12-13 and Ezekiel 37:28.

A division of Jerusalem today does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled in a soon coming tomorrow.
