Jerusalem police block a group of religious Jews who wanted to march to the Temple Mount leading sheep there to be sacrificed on the holy site

A group of several hundred religious Jews in Jerusalem were told they could not take sheep onto the Temple Mount to be sacrificed because such a march could disturb the peace and cause public disruption and Jerusalem police said they would stop even the entrance into the old city of Jerusalem.

Religious Jews say the Torah reveals that certain types of sacrifices are permitted to be carried out on the Temple Mount before the third Temple is rebuilt provided an altar is first erected for the purpose.

The Jews wanting to carry out this sacrificial activity on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem claim that the sheep are approved by Jewish law for sacrifice and the government has no right to stop this Biblical event from being carried out on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jerusalem police have blocked the Jews from offering sacrifices on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Several hundred religious Jews were blocked by Jerusalem police from entering the Temple Mount with about twenty sheep that were approved by Jewish Levitical law to be sacrificed on the Temple Mount and told them they could not follow the Biblical directives for restoring the sacrificial system. The police said such a move by the religious Jews would disrupt the peace and cause major disturbances in the old city of Jerusalem and in the Temple Mount area.

For several years now, a number of religious Jews have attempted to go onto the Temple Mount and perform animal sacrifices as called for in the Scriptures. A close study of Bible prophecy reveals that in the period of the third Temple, the next Temple to be built in Jerusalem, and the fourth Temple also to be built on the Temple Mount, the sacrificial system will be restored. Daniel 9:27 says these restored sacrifices will cease at the mid-way point of the seven year Tribulation Period. Ezekiel 40-46 contains 202 verses of detailed information for the Temple that will be built in the Kingdom Period by the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In his prophecy, Ezekiel foretells of the restoration of the sacrificial system in the Kingdom Period, Ezekiel 45.

Jerusalem police blocking the Jews from restoring sacrifices on the Temple Mount today is indeed a precursor for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in a future tomorrow.
