The conflict on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is not going to go away

JD: This does not look like it’s going to go away.

DD: No Jimmy, it doesn’t look like it’s going to go away. It’s been over a week now of trouble. It was a week ago Friday that some Israeli security patrolmen were killed just near the Temple Mount by some Palestinian terrorist. They came down to Jerusalem went into the Old City and did this killing near the Lions Gate then escaped up to the Temple Mount and they were followed by Israeli security forces, cornered there, and killed. The Israeli government decided they had no choice but to put in the metal detectors all around the Temple Mount area. Now, we’ve had some in existence for many years now especially going right up to the Temple Mount from the bottom of the Western Wall area but not the other entrances.

Palestinians don’t like it Jimmy and sign it’s going to continue is we’re hearing more and more Palestinian authority voices endorsing this violence basically calling for a new uprising seems to be happening. Again there’s no more emotional issue than the Temple Mount and the Old City of Jerusalem for the Moslems. Really in some ways Jimmy as I’ve said before it’s a more important holy site than Mecca which is of course their officially holiest site but it was in Jerusalem they believe that Allah demonstrated the voracity of Islam’s claims by giving them the holiest site of the Jews and the holy city for the Christians as well. That’s the bases of this and so I think we have enough fuel going the ultimate escalation would be if Hamas or Hezbollah or both got into this and turned it into a real full war.

JD: David Dolan with a report on the conflict on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

David Dolan’s report on the conflict in Jerusalem at the Temple Mount brings into focus to very important issues the Temple Mount and the Palestinian people. Bible prophecy speaks directly to both of these issues. The Palestinians, the Biblical edomites of Biblical history will return in the last days according to Malachi chapter 1. The prophet Ezekiel says that these Palestinians will kill the Jews and steal their land, that’s Ezekiel 35:5 & 10.

The ancient Jewish prophets also speak to the other focus in this report the Temple Mount. Zechariah reveals the importance of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Zechariah 6:12 & 13 tells us Jesus Christ the Messiah will return to the Temple Mount and he will build his Temple where he will rule and reign forever. The present conflict on the Temple Mount is a result of these two prophecies coming together and they will continue to be fulfilled until the Lords return.
