As the ongoing peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians continues to falter, the Vatican has demanded control over the religious sites in the Old City of Jerusalem and the surrounding area warning the peace negotiators that they must tackle the issue of the status of these holy sites. The Vatican warned that there will be no peace if the question of the holy sites is not resolved and the sacred and unique character of these areas must be safeguarded and it can only be done with an internationally guaranteed agreement.
The Vatican wants Israel to relinquish sovereignty over the Temple Mount, Judaism's most sacred site, and internationalize the city of Jerusalem, a plan that the Israelis reject outright.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The demand coming from the Vatican in Rome for the city of Jerusalem to be made an international zone is a page out of Bible prophecy for the last days.
Recent calls from the Vatican in Rome for control of the holy sites in Jerusalem has caused concern for the political leaders of Israel. In fact, the Israeli government and the Vatican are deadlocked in discussions over the status of the religious sites in Jerusalem. In question would be the Holy Sepulchre, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Upper Room which the Vatican demands to have under their sovereign control. The Vatican wants all of the Old City of Jerusalem to be made into an international zone, including the Temple Mount. The Jews claim the Temple Mount as their most sacred piece of real estate and they vow to never allow the sovereignty to be relinquished to the control of any other that the Jewish State of Israel.
This report is indeed a page out of Bible prophecy for the end of times. Daniel, the ancient Jewish prophet, reveals in Daniel chapters 9 and 11 how the Revived Roman Empire will come together out of a one world religious power base in Rome, Italy. This end times political power led by the one world dictator, the Antichrist, will take control of the Temple Mount and allow a temple to be built there. Jews are ready to rebuild that temple in Jerusalem right now.
The Vatican's demand to control holy sites in Jerusalem is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
