Contention between Israeli Jews and Palestinians Stretches back nearly a century, with little hope of resolution. In the past few months, however, the conflict has increasingly focused on a struggle for control of the Temple Mount.

The site of Solomon's Temple and, later, of Herod's temple at the time of Jesus has been a sacred place for over 3,000 years. The original Jewish Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 70 BC Rebuilt Years Later, the temple endured another six centuries as the center of Jewish spiritual life Until The Romans destroyed it in AD 70 amidst a Jewish rebellion. The surviving Jews were scattered and havebeen left without a temple for Almost 2,000 years.

When the Holy Land was Christianized in the early fourth century by the order of the first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine, monumental churches were built throughout it, including the Holy Sepulcher over the traditional tomb of Jesus. However, the Temple Mount was intentionally left desolate as a sign of the fulfillment of Christ's prophecy That not one stone of the temple would be left standing. And so it remained for three centuries, visited by pilgrims Following in Jesus Christ's footsteps, but unadorned by any Christian shrine.

Thus, When the Arab Muslims conquered Jerusalem in 638 under the Caliph Umar, They were entered into a treaty to protect the Christian and Jewish holy places in the city. Searching for a location in Jerusalem to construct a mosque for the new Muslim community, the Arabs naturally turned to the large space left empty by the Christians on the Old Temple Mount. Soon the Arabs had built not only the Al-Aqsa Mosque for prayer and worship, but Also a new shrine. Known as the Dome of the Rock, The Sanctuary is one of the great architectural achievements of the Islamic world. It commemorated the biblical Temple of Solomon and the place where Jesus taught and Performed miracles - Both of whichwere described in the Quran and accepted by Muslims as authentic sacred history. In addition, Muslims believed That Muhammad had visited the Temple Mount of Jerusalem in vision, ascending from there into heaven.

Apart from a century of Christian rule over the Crusaders, the Temple Mount remained in Muslim hands for the next 13 centuries. Jews were given locations on the fringes of the Temple Mount for prayers, Which Eventually developed into the Western Wall.

The Israeli conquest of Palestine and East Jerusalem in 1967 friendlyness of the Temple Mount in Jewish hands again for the first time in 1,400 years. Although some Israelis at the time agitated for permanent occupation of the Temple Mount and destruction of the Muslim shrines there, the Israeli government Decided to leave Muslim Authorities in charge of the area. Indeed, the rabbinic leaders of Israel forbade Jews from entering the Temple Mount lest They unintentionally profane the sacred precincts where, of according to Jewish law, only priests Could enter.

Throughout the medieval period of Muslim dominance in Jerusalem, the Jewish messianic expectations were of two minds Regarding the rebuilding of the Temple. One maintained That When The Messiah came, he would rebuild the temple as a sign of his divine authority. The other tradition held That the temple must be rebuilt by the Jews in preparation for the coming of the Messiah. These two traditions - Which Could be called the quietist and activist - still exist Among Jews today. Activist Jews thus believe That Israel must expel the Muslims from the Temple Mount, destroy the Dome of the Rock and rebuild the "Third Temple" to prepare the way for the Messiah.

For decades, These Third Temple movements havebeen preparing and agitating for the rebuilding of the temple, going so far as to make utensils, furnishings and priestly robes for use in the coming sanctuary. Every year, on Jewish holy days, These groups have attempted to Force Their Way onto the Temple Mount to pray, and have consistently been turned away by Israeli security forces.

In Recent months, however, Increasing numbers of Jews have Begun Wider agitation for the right to ascend the Temple Mount to pray, in violation of the early 1967 status quo agreement Regarding the site. Palestinian Muslims have reacted with bothering demonstration and violence, and with the threat of a Potentially new "intifada" (uprising). Thus, despite Isaiah's prophecy That the Temple Mount Should be "a house of prayer for all nations" (Isaiah 56: 7; Mark 11: 17), It remains a source of discord and conflict.

Views on marriage will not change

vatican summit banner-2

Pope invited to a conference in Rome. There, met many religious leaders who shared their traditions around marriage. All had the same view of it all. Men and women complement each other and have different roles, and a child needs his mother and father.

The religious leaders felt invigorated by the conference and they knew they had a challenge ahead of them to deal with. It is difficult for them will be when they want to be able to meet all the people who are LGBT are in their particular life situation. They are not heterosexual, and they feel they do not fit into the religious norm. Moreover, they are not LGBT-are because they chose it, but they are born that way.

This is of course a great disappointment for all those who want to see a change and that same sex marriages should be allowed. The Pope raised the hope for a little while ago because he wanted the tone of homosexuals would be toned down and become softer and inclusive. They are now disappointed and believe that the pope has turned coat after the wind.



Jesus never said there would not be any more prophets

profSometimes boggles the idea for me that I used pass the snowy streets of Michigan To talk to people on prophets. Var I crazy? Am I still crazy? Day day out ... I knocked of someone door or stopped them on the streets in order to say something like, do you want hear a message of Jesus Christ"? Om against all odds would say "yes... I started tell us about prophets.

Wait!" sa people you said that you would share one message of Christ. " "I would. Would any of us ever know about Christ without to prophets had first told you about him for US? ' I do not want hear something about prophetsthey would say. There are none more prophets A.D. We do not need longer prophets since Christ left Bible and the Holy Spirit to us.

While the door was being slapped again would I ask to share a scripture ur Bible.

The person who answers before listening, is foolish and shameful.(Proverbs 18:13)

The scripture could get hearts soften and we would gain further one few minutes to share with you that so many of us has traveled Long Range worldwide to share.

The message is; There is living prophets again. These prophets has arrived in these last days to testify of Jesus Christ and to determine each statement about who he is. after nearly 1700 years of confusion and darkness, is de living prophets as exposed and restored true knowledge if the Lord Jesus Christ back to earth. Because of these prophetswe know now who we worship and how vi to worship him. Without prophets so should we referred to our own philosophical speculation God.

Is he a man or a God?

Does he have a body fair nuor he was a Spiritessence?

Is he three beings or something else?

KRav Baptism for salvation or is it subordinate? If it is secondary why we do the. Om the required so as it is John 3: 3-5 it is action. Does that mean that other measures are also required for our salvation? Do we need repent for salvation or is an oral Creed enough?

Vi could continue several days

But seriously God has not always functioned through prophets?

"Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (Amos 3: 7)

Om that Writing is true, why would anyone in this world not with excitement and curiosity welcome the idea of ​​a to ensure Prophet? Could it be true? Available ever en time in the history of this world where a prophet would better required CHANGE in our days?

Throughout History God has always sent prophets to "restoreen knowledge of the gospel back to earth. Amos also said that

11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the word of the LORD.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea
and run to and fro, from north to east to search for word of the LORD, but they shall not find it. ". (Amos 8: 11-12)

Du can search the whole earth after The gospel of God and no matter how very searching ... If no prophet on the earth, then du not find it. No one has ever only "figured out " God's will without first was to them through prophets.

There is a basic fact. You can not receive Christ without accept  prophets. It is a logic impossibility. Vi would have no idea Who Christ is without teachings of the prophets. It would be crazy to tell we accept and believe in Christ and simultaneously reject Witness John Baptist. Christ Receive FREE of the scribes and Pharisees as accept dead prophets and rejects the living prophets. He says these important words about future prophets;

"For I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall not see me again until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." (Matt 23:39)

Translation from old English reads: You can not see Me or feel until acceptance Prophets as I sent to you. " I imagine that of the things that Frustrate Jesus manure is When he sends of His servants to teach his people and these then Rejects them. I can imagine Jesus placing his hand on the servant's head and then say something similar to what he said when he showed state i Israel at that time;

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stones those who are sent to you. How often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and ye would not. 38 Behold, your house will be deserted. 39 For I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall not see me again until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. "(Matt 23:37)

This pattern in that God sends prophets to their children has lasted for thousands of years. It began with Adam. He rejected. He sent Noah and Abraham and Moses. De rejected. Prophets sent to People on the American continent. Although the avvisas. People  says in all time "We have prophets. Vi do not need more prophets.

However, it is Clearly, we need prophets.

Roger Williams founder of Baptist Church in America expressed this Best Qualityt. Cotton Mather said,, "Mr. Williams told for their followers when he himself was misled, he had, in turn, misled themAnd he noted that it was not in earth as could administering baptism or any of the ordinances of the gospel. DHY as he advised them  refraining all and wait  upcoming new Apostles. "

"Mr. Williams [finally] Told [his followers] 'that being himself misled, he had [misled them,' and] he was now satisfied williams thatthere was none upon earth thatcould is administered baptism [or any of the ordinances of the gospel], ... [so] he advised them Therefore to forego all ... and wait for the coming of new apostles. "

Will you Remember when Jesus told us "watch out for False Prophetsthat would come after his time? Remember The Invisible bThe words of this statement The Savior. Jesus said, Never the not would be some more prophets. If the not would come prophets so he would Having said "Now will not longer prophets". In its warningso are an implicit promise that prophets actually coming after he is gone. He just wants to that we should beware of false Prophets.

And so  he leaves us with perhaps of the important advice He can give; "By their fruits ye shall know them."

Does this sound crazy?

It is Biblical.

So when someone says there is no need prophets our time introduce them to one few whose fruits are worth careful consideration.
