Jordan's King Abdullah warns Israel about disastrous repercussions if it crosses a red line on Jerusalem

Listen to Today's Program Play

The Monarch of Jordan, King Abdullah, has urged the international community to act firmly against any Israeli action aimed at changing the identity of what the king called the holy city as he referred to the city of Jerusalem which he said is holy to both Moslems, Jews, and Christians. Abdullah said that Jerusalem is a red line and any manipulation of this city would have disastrous repercussions on the security and stability of the Middle East region since the status of Jerusalem is one of the most sensitive issues in the decades old Middle East conflict. 

The Jordanian King stated that Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967 and reunited the city and now considers the entire city to be its eternal indivisible capital.  

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jordan's King Abdullah, in a recent warning to Israel, said that if the Jews crossed a red line on Jerusalem, it could cause disastrous repercussions which is actually a page out of Bible prophecy. 

For 19 years, from 1948 to 1967, the Jordanians controlled the Old City of Jerusalem which is the location of the Temple Mount, a very controversial peace of real estate. With the reunification of the city of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War, the Jews took control of the Old City and thus the Temple Mount. King Abdullah's warning to the Jews about changing the status quo of Judaism's most sacred site sets the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled. 

2500 years ago, Zechariah wrote that Jerusalem would be the center of controversy and a heavy burden to those associated with it (Zechariah 12:2-3). The ancient Jewish prophet had much to say about Jerusalem for the last days including the return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to build His temple on the Temple Mount, the location where He would rule and reign over a worldwide kingdom (Zechariah 1:16;6:12-13). 

The warnings from King Abdullah about Jerusalem are indeed a page out of Bible prophecy for the end times - prophecy that will be fulfilled.
