Tens of thousands of Jewish and Christian worshippers gathered at the Western Wall for the "priestly blessing"

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: This is the season of Passover there in Israel and in fact across the world but in Israel in Jerusalem the Sanhedrin reenacted the Passover sacrifice. They weren’t on the Temple Mount which is what the Bible calls for but instead a location overlooking the Temple Mount; they did that at the time of Passover. But this last week tens of thousands gathered at the Western Wall for the priestly blessing. Now this is a part of the plan that the Jewish people have and they prepare for the Temple to be there so all these things will be authentic. Events happening that are simply preparation for that aren’t they?

DD: Yes, Jimmy and remarkably so because when I moved to Israel in 1980 and there was no existing Sanhedrin then. There was talk of a new Temple you heard it every so often but very rarely any action. The priestly blessings were taking place of course then but much much smaller and not so much attention on all of this. And as you have documented yourself and many others too over the past 30 years the moves to prepare for a new Temple have been gaining force every year. The excitement about it seems to be growing.

But the realization that this will probably only come about after a massive war is pretty wide spread in Israel. People understand that, they know that the Muslims are never going to willingly give up any part of the Temple Mount. We saw them reoccupy the Golden Gate a couple months ago and the fighting that took place over that. So it will have to be a major change on the ground before that can happen. But certainly Orthodox Jews in particular and even many Secular Jews would like to see a Temple rebuilt but Orthodox Jews particular do and are very longing for it and very excited at the prospect of it happening.

JD: David Dolan with the details of the tens of thousands of Jews and Christians gathering at the Western Wall for the annual priestly blessings.

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

Those Jewish men who have been training for the priesthood when the Jewish Temple stands on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem were the ones who pronounced the priestly blessings in Jerusalem recently. This is an annual event during the Passover season. This ceremony is in preparation for the priest to do this when the Temple stands in Jerusalem. As David reported the Jewish people in Israel believe that the Temple will not be rebuilt until after a major war in the land of Israel. That is correct according to Daniel 11:45 in its context. All preparations are made to rebuild that Temple and that major war could start at any time.

The European Union wants President Trump to pull back his support for the rebel leaders in Libya

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken we better check in on Libya. We’ve talked about it in the past. The European Union hoping that the Trump plan of a support for General Haftar against the United Nations appointed government there in Tripoli that Trump will pull back from that. I don’t think he’s going to do you?

KT: I don’t think he is either. This is yet another situation where President Trump defies the establishment thinking of the foreign ministries and the international diplomats who want to support this UN government in Tripoli. And Trump says no they’re full of Islamist, they're supported by Haftar, they’re supported by terrorist states. Haftar is a General from the Gaddafi regime who established himself in Benghazi after the fall of the US consulate facility there after the murder of Americans.

By the way it was a group of pro Gaddafi loyalists who actually rescued our people at the end of a 13 hour battle that they had with Al-Qaeda and the Iranian Quds force in Benghazi in 2012, that’s a little known fact that came out of the Benghazi special committee shared by Trey Gowdy on Capital Hill. So Haftar comes out of that same group of pro Gaddafi loyalist. And while he has welcomed some Islamist groups into his coalition he’s also battled ISIS, he’s battle Al-Qaeda and excluded them. So Trump sees him as a potential ally to distance the Islamist groups from power in Libya.

JD: Ken Timmerman on the details behind the attempt by the Libyan rebel leaders to take down the United Nations backed and appointed Libyan government.

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

Ken’s report helps us to focus on the nation of Libya. This is this tribal nation that the late Colonel Gaddafi had control over until his death. Now General Haftar a former military leader under Gaddafi is leading the war against the United Nations backed government there in Tripoli. Ancient Jewish prophets wrote of Libya’s role in the alignment of nations who want to destroy the Jewish State of Israel. Those prophets were Ezekiel writing in Ezekiel 38:5 and Daniel 11:43 & 44.

The European Union of today will be the revived Roman Empire of tomorrow, that’s Daniel 7:7, 8, 23, 24. These are the players God’s word reveals will be the ones to fulfill these prophetic passages.
