The Palestinians are clashing with Israeli security at the Golden Gate, or you may know it as the Eastern Gate, where the Palestinians are being kept from worshipping at this sacred spot

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Palestinians are clashing with the police up on the Temple Mount and it’s a situation there at the Golden Gate, the Eastern Gate it’s been closed; tell me what’s going on.

DD: Well yes the new Palestinian walk, that’s the group that controls the Temple Mount has been expanded recently to 18 members and several new members are from the Palestinian Authority for the first time, the ruling government Mahmoud Abbas’s government. They are now demanding that that Eastern Gate be reopened as an exclusive Muslim prayer center. I don’t know if you’ve been in there Jimmy. I imagine you’ve been outside of it. I haven’t been inside but I’ve but I’ve seen pictures, it’s quite a large chamber inside. The Israeli’s heard these statements they’ve been making for the past couple of weeks and they put up some new metal fences around it. Well the Palestinians this week rode up there and tore down the fences, ripped them apart with crowbars, the police came up and as you said there was clashes.

Now Friday was fairly calm up there but the Israeli police were everywhere and they arrested 60 Palestinian Muslim activist that they were known to be asking for rioting and promoting this sort of thing. So it was fairly quiet but there was trouble in Silwan a near by neighborhood. And the Palestinian Authority did warn this week Jimmy that in the run up to the revelation of President Trump’s peace plan, the deal of the century he’s calling it that there will be more and more clashes erupting especially over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount which they believe or they say at least Israel is going to try to take control of as part of this peace plan. So we’ll have to wait and see about that. But definitely tensions are rising and of course the election process is always a time of extra tensions as well.

JD: David Dolan with the details about the conflict between the Israeli's and the Palestinians at the Golden Gate or the Eastern Gate which ever you may know this gate by.

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

The Golden Gate or also known as the Eastern Gate is the gate that the Messiah Jesus Christ will enter into on his way to the Holy of Holies of the Millennial Temple when Jesus returns to the earth. It’s not the same gate where the conflict is today but the Eastern Gate of the Temple that Jesus will build when he returns, that’s Zechariah 6:12 and Ezekiel 43:1-8. This is not the time of the rapture when this happens but the time of the Lord’s return to the earth. This conflict on the Temple Mount is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
