Divorce is an unpleasant process more awful when separating couples cannot reach agreement, engage in litigation. Suddenly the love of your life becomes opponent and contributions to marriage is pored over by lawyers and potentially judges. Divorce can become gendered family lawyers will be acutely aware of the unfortunate tendency to refer to the ‘breadwinning husband’ homemaking wife’ This does not reflect the reality of many modern marriages but often it is the wife who undertakes most childcare and domestic duties, while the husband has created most of the wealth for the family. Most people think of the actual divorce as the most stressful element but is resolved fairly swiftly. For most married couples this reflects the basic principle of their union: you are a team, you share responsibilities and funds, and make joint decisions. So what happens if not on the same side? It was a question posed by most cases.
Millionaire businessman Mr Work was ordered to pay his wife half his £140m fortune in 2015, but fought the court’s decision, saying his wife ‘stayed home’ during 2 decades long marriage, during which she raised their two children. He argued he made all the family’s money and claimed to posses quality of genius enabled him to do this without support of his wife. Court of Appeal disagreed so dismissed Mr Work’s appeal. He must pay half of his fortune to ex wife, after judge accepts she is a ‘good homemaker and good mother,’ adding it was down to her willingness to move to Japan the husband was able to amass his wealth.
The important decision for stay-at-home mothers raises questions of how judges should consider the spouses’ respective contributions in ‘big money’ divorce cases. Most people think actual divorce most stressful element but is usually resolved fairly swiftly. Majority of the arguments centre around division of assets or some technicalities or division of everything couple collectively own and earned during marriage. England and Wales is known to be one of the most generous jurisdictions there is. London is the divorce capital of world for fairness is central to process and in cases each party’s financial needs are met by the assets available, the starting point for division is 50:50. The Court has wide discretion when making financial orders and considers a range of factors. One factor is the contribution that both the husband and wife made. Thanks to new verdict, it is now settled law there should be no discrimination between breadwinner and homemaker. Staying at home, cooking, cleaning, reading to children is as important as working 12 hours a day on trading floor earning £1m a year. Mothers feel they make special contribution of ‘exceptional quality’ every day. Over the years various arguments used by mostly wealthy husbands to convince courts is award to their spouse to be less than 50 per cent. The favourite known as special contribution involves arguing financial input to marriage was significant award should be increased in their favour. To be successful need to amass significant wealth and show they used ‘exceptional quality’ or ‘genius’ to achieve this.
What about homemakers? How does this not discriminate against the wife, at home with the children every day? The wife quietly supporting her husband in his endeavours? What about spouse who sacrificed own successful career? Or those who are juggling both a career and childcare? Many mothers no doubt feel they make a special contribution of ‘exceptional quality’ daily. The Court of Appeal has confirmed this principle still stands though many hope it will in due course either limited or abolished by the Supreme Court. Litigation is bad enough without having to rummage into the detail of who did what and when to justify their contribution. In addition to cases where wife receives a substantial lump sum settlement such as Mandy Gray will get. In England and Wales one of the attractive forums in the world is for the financially weaker spouse paid maintenance for life. This concept is alien to nearby jurisdictions. Just across the border in Scotland, the maximum maintenance term is three years. However, this ‘meal ticket for life’ is becoming rarer. The Court looks at each spouse’s income and earning capacity. Consideration is given to whether or not having a qualification worked recently or assumes childcare responsibilities. The test is whether, in light of all these circumstances payee adjust to their financial independence without undue hardship. Judges want to see hard evidence of efforts of receiving party to maximise earning capacity.
Some wives may think its unfair if was agreed during the marriage that they would be supported financially and made sacrifices to this effect. Others may welcome opportunity to re-enter the working world; potentially a new lease of life after divorce. Although returning to work, for women, is unduly tough – despite the glut of ‘returnships’ now on offer from big companies. What is clear is society moves on so does the family law. Undoubtedly the problem is focus continues to be trying to achieve fairness for both husbands and wives. One imagines Ms Gray would agree that this has been achieved.
5 things about divorce Ayesha Vardag
1. It takes longer and be more harrowing than you think.
If everything can be agreed then it is possible for a case to be resolved in a few weeks but more likely exchanging disclosure, attending court hammering out a settlement will take around a year, and often more, and it can really wear you down. It is a marathon endeavour so important to keep your spirits up.
2. Ending marriage and finance issues are completely separate.
The reasons for the marriage ending will almost never affect the financial outcome and the court will not punish a spouse for marital indiscretions.
3. Courts less glamorous than you imagine.
Most English courts mahogany-panelled Victorian masterpieces, but most poorly maintained post-war monstrosities with hot, airless waiting rooms and windows that do not open, where you wait for hours on end, the tension is unbearable. Arbitration or a private family dispute resolution offers chance to move case to salubrious surroundings to settle it.
4. Nothing is “off the record”.
You are required to be fully frank about finances so lawyers are not allowed to help hide assets or lie to partner. To courts, honesty really is the best policy.
5. Can be cathartic experience.
Many people assume that divorce is an upsetting business. While it is never easy to bring a marriage to an end, for many the chance to move forward and build a new chapter of their life can be a rejuvenating experience. Usually the clients get happier, stronger and visibly empowered as process goes forward. Above all during the divorce ongoing conflict between parents can affect the children’s mental health, development of social and emotional skills, academic attainment and can impact their ability to form future relationships. It can also damage physical health, lasting through their adult lives into next generation as it starts early. Agreeing to disagree for the sake of the children is very helpful.

Miraculously the son of atheist becomes pastor of the living God, serving Christ Jesus his Master and Saviour. A secular media reported Madalyn Murray O’Hair was that atheist who got Bible reading kicked out of public schools. A national hero to atheist as Supreme Court ruled in her favour in 1963. A year earlier the Supreme Court prohibited government sponsored prayer in schools. And after O’Hair won her case 1964 Life magazine profile referred to her “the most hated woman in America.” Secularists went so far as to say that historic ruling placed U.S. on vanguard of change to morality with rationalism over superstition. She spouted liberal agenda, reporters were willing to overlook murmurings about the psychological abuses towards her children and employees at American Atheists organization. When rumours surfaced of skimming tens of thousands of dollars from non-profit, investigative journalists turned attention elsewhere. The latest gloss on Madalyn mystique applied in Netflix movie portrayed her as a doting mother and dedicated civil rights activist, eldest son said.
Supernaturally, is absolutely a miracle William Murray III knew that the real Madalyn churl who bullied her children bragged to very young about watching X-rated movies was saved. She was an ardent feminist who resented men, Bill says. “One of her favorite stories I have heard her repeat it many times is that when I was born and the doctor told her, ‘It is a boy,’ she asked him if there wasn’t some way he could put it back,” Bill told People magazine. She bit him, smashed his model airplane to pieces in a fit of rage, and ridiculed his attempts to play baseball. She kept a liquor closet full, refrigerator stocked with fattening, unhealthy foods, extolled the virtues of sexual liberty and wrote for the Hustler magazine. She tried to defect to Soviet Union with entire family and supported communist causes, Bill says. As a middle school child in Baltimore, Bill became an unwitting pawn in her 1963 Supreme Court battle against the school prayer. Madalyn sued school district and rode a movement to strike down prayer and Bible reading. With petulant eloquence, tirelessly voiced acrimonious atheism, and media lapped up pretty everything she served. Said, finds Bible nauseating, historically inaccurate, replete ravings of madmen. Finds God sadistic, brutal representation of hatred.”
Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin and Phil Donahue all hosted her on their evening TV programs. Madalyn revels attention. Every misfit in country wrote her letters of praise including generous checks of her non-profit, American Atheists, Bill says. “My mother was evil person, not for removing prayer from America’s schools, no, she was just evil,” Bill wrote online in 2011. Stole huge amounts of money, misused trust of people, cheats children out of parents’ inheritance. She cheated on her taxes and stole from her own organizations.” So Madalyn busied herself with rhetoric, newsletters, fund-raising and publicity,” Bill increasingly disaffected, eloped and divorced, was drafted in the military and worked for an airline. He left his daughter Robin under care of his mother. His second marriage was unraveling had run-ins with police, drifted through struggles, failures so harbours doubts atheistism manifesto. Why did his mother spend non-profit’s money on a new Cadillac and mobile home? Why she sued NASA from airing Astronaut Buzz Aldrin from taking the communion on moon? Why not spend on new X-ray machine for a hospital? If atheism was saviour of modernity why focus on antagonistic role shutting down others? Why not do something in favour of all humanity?
Interestingly started to think is because my mother was basically negative and destructive, he said. Bill turns to alcohol to quash his anxieties and misgivings. Once when police arrived after he had a dispute with his wife, accidentally fired a rifle through door. Bill was charged with aggravated assault and sentenced to five years probation. It was, perhaps, the nadir of his life. The incident served as wake up call. He realized he needed help turned to Alcoholics Anonymous. The support group and a volunteer job at a drug rehab program is where he “found my first awareness of a loving God. I saw some miraculous things people were able to accomplish with faith. And I couldn’t help comparing all that with atheism.” Bill did something his mother would loathe he gave his life to Jesus Christ. He hadn’t spoken to her, however, for years. In 1980 on Mother’s Day, he came out publicly, declaring himself as a Christian. He had not seen his daughter, Robin, in years. When he attempts to call his daughter or brother, hurled insults calling him a traitor and hung up. Bill said, all under a complete control of the monster intoxicated with identity America’s Apostle of Atheism.
Her hubris got worse, her estranged son fired a salvo in favour of Saviour, she launched complete nuclear attack: “One could call this a postnatal abortion on the part of a mother, I guess,” she said, as quoted on Wikipedia. “I repudiate him entirely and completely now and all times, beyond human forgiveness.” Bill’s steps towards Christianity were at first tentative and searching. He didn’t want to line up with any group. But as he studied the Word, he fell in with the Baptists and dedicated his life to undo some of the damage he felt responsible for with his role in the Supreme Court ruling banned Bible reading and prayer. His part played as teenager in removing prayer from public school was criminal he wrote for a newspaper in Austin his mother’s non-profit base and Baltimore where the lawsuit was filed. “I swear on the altar of God that I will strive to right this wrong that I have done. Today, Bill, 70, is a Baptist pastor, and is chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, a non-profit in Washington D.C. fighting for rights of Christians in Islamic and communist countries. His printing press produces Bibles in Russia shortly after communism collapsed old Soviet Union. While Madalyn was alive, Bill travelled to cities there speaking engagements to expose her lies at counter-protests. His opposition did not bring Madalyn down.
Eventually her demise came from her own camp when atheists turned against her. Madalyn liked to hire criminals at the American Atheists headquarters in Austin. Bill says she derived pleasure exercising authority over lawbreakers, maybe she felt kinship with flagrant felons. Whatever the case, she had a dim view of the people she hired. Her diaries called her employees “pimps, whores, hopheads, queers, pinkos, drunks, glue-sniffers and freaks.” She was not known to be sweet employer. In 1993, Madalyn hired David Roland Waters, a convicted felon on parole who had killed a teenager over 50 cents of gasoline when he lived in South Africa. Waters started in the print shop and rose to office manager. As investigators later learned, Waters became part of Madalyn’s fraud schemes. He helped print forged stock certificates in a bid to take over a competing more profitable atheistic organization, Bill said. And he embezzled $54,000 from American Atheists. He claimed he siphoned off the money at the behest off Madalyn’s family in a deal where he would keep a part. Only he was convicted. To distance herself from any implication, Madalyn exposed in public newsletter Waters’ criminal past. She included the morbid details of how he beat his mother in 70s with a broom handle abused her body.
Unsuccessfully meanwhile, Madalyn attempted unsuccessfully to take over the wealthier atheist organization run by James Hervey Johnson in San Diego did not work. And so Johnson’s lawyers retaliated with a $7 million lawsuit in 1993 Madalyn feared would lose. And so According to IRS affidavit, Waters was outraged began to voice “fantasies of killing Madalyn” and torturing her by “snipping off her toes,” the Washington Post reported. She began to liquidate assets and transfer finances abroad, according to her employee David Travis. In the Washington Post, Travis said he accidentally opened letter to Madalyn’s son Jon Garth Murray, which reported $1 million in a New Zealand Guardian Trust. Travis and the other employees expected Madalyn, Jon Robin abscond to the South Seas at any moment. So no one was surprised when on August 28, 1995 a typewritten note appeared on a door of American Atheist headquarters one morning before work. It said: “The Murray-O’Hair family has been called out of town on emergency basis. We do not know how long we will be gone at the time of writing of this memo. So the Austin police were not interested in investigating the missing persons report filed by Bill. Only the IRS wanted to find the threesome for fraud schemes.
During first days of the disappearance, Jon and Robin called American Atheist headquarters, were vague and sounded strained but reported family was OK in San Antonio, Texas. They were not OK. Jon, under duress of kidnappers, bought $500,000 worth of gold coins from a San Antonio jeweler, which he turned over in hopes of earning freedom for family. The kidnappers spent (not all of) the money, according to the FBI, IRS and local police. Instead gaining freedom, the Murray-O’Hairs were murdered in a grisly manner. Bill explained on his website: Madalyn “and my daughter were held for almost 30 days, probably tied and gagged, my brother desperately tried to obtain ransom money. At all times my brother was escorted by one of the kidnappers. My brother was total slave to my mother. He saw himself as her provider and rescuer. All his life she had talked down to him and made fun of him and now, in his mind, he would show her his worth by single-handedly rescuing her. He was murdered for his faithfulness.” Waters and 2 accomplices carefully disposed of corpses that they were not found until Waters himself, finally convicted of murders in August of 2000, led detectives to a Texas ranch where he buried mutilated bodies. The Murray-O’Hair atheists disappeared and unaccounted missing aviator Amelia Earhart except decapitated handless body found in a wooded area near the Trinity River outside Dallas in October 1995. The site showed little blood, which indicated dumped not killed there. The corpse was butchered it was intended to never be identifiable by police.
Unidentified for three years without face, fingerprints or clothing, the corpse remained A reporter for San Antonio Express-Newshad researched the case for two years when he got anonymous tip after writing an article on the “town-skipping” atheists. The caller said friend disappeared about the same time when he went to see Waters. Knowing Waters an enemy to family, the reporter alerted police. DNA test proved body belonged to Danny Fry, who joined with another convict in Waters’ kidnapping ring. So arrested and convicted for gruesome murders of Madalyn, Jon, Robin. And “Did Robin pray to receive Christ as she was bound and gagged? Perhaps,” Bill wrote grimly on his website. “Did my mother or brother cry out to the Lord just before they were murdered? I do not know. Christ is there for the vilest offender. The serial killer whose prayer at the hour of his death is genuine is also forgiven. My mother, my brother and my daughter may well await me in heaven. “On the other hand, they may have stood their ground defying God to the end, spending yet another day of eternity in hell. If that is the case I will never see them again. Bill wonders why atheism does not die with his mother, brother and daughter. Deaths of my mother, brother and daughter should make all too clear the need for Christ to others to renounce atheism,” Bill wrote. Those who follow my mother continue to fight against God and His authority. Fools who mock sin face God’s Wrath judgements in Bible in Proverbs 14:8.
Baby Adam received miracle new mum after his mother died in childbirth due to heavy bleeding in Uganda in Africa. This sad story turned to good as God sent help to Adam while being born. God’s external help linked Adam to an open new miracle way. Through Emilie Larter the five-day-old orphan in her arms set her on a journey to becoming a mum. The 25year old was volunteering for a children’s charity in Uganda staff received news woman died leaving behind seven children. The youngest baby boy who did not have a name with none to take care of him was given to staff of a charity. Emilie from United Kingdom Leigh Sinton Worcestershire, baby’s sole carer had sleepless nights looking after the boy now called Adam. Emilie has received more than £15,000 donations with majority raised since her story was shared online on Sunday. She says the response is amazing taking her on the next step to finally becoming Adam’s mum. So is fundraising to help cover the costs of formally adopting the child to bring him back to live in the UK. Emilie told BBC News she raised more than she ever thought would happen. So thought she will be pestering family and friends but is amazing at the same time. Grateful for getting messages from people in China, Australia, Germany and other places. People tell her how inspiring and lovely to read something nice. Yet says this is just her life.”
Emilie’s journey started in September 2014 when the charity volunteering for in Uganda received a call about the new born boy in need. Baby arrived after the burial of a woman who died because of excessive bleeding after birth. So Adam was her child including 6 others yet had not received any breast milk or formula and no one able to care for him. Sadly, his biological mother left this world before even giving him a name,” said Emilie. All took to Adam with random acts of kindness in and she became the little one’s sole carer. And the sleepless nights were down to her, but they were no bother. She felt privileged to help the little helpless baby but felt she did not do much. Yet never a day went by to be bored to sit and watch him for hours.
Over the next two years, Emily visited Adam as often as she could by working in a teaching job in the UK. But the short visits were not enough and she moved back to Uganda in August 2016 after finding work at an international school. Now Adam, who is two-and-a-half, lives with her full time while she tries to adopt him. Emilie said: She feels like his mum already. We had such a strong bond every time I was coming out but especially now since he’s been living with me. Emilie has to foster Adam until August before applying to the Ugandan courts to legally be his parent. So needs permission from UK to bring Adam back to Britain as he call her mum. She is hopeful they will live together in UK by the end of the year. Emilie plans to fund adoption until she lost her job in December. So prompted her to set up a Go Fund Me crowdfunding page to pay for the process. Emilie’s parents help to support her living costs as she takes her teaching positions to cover Adam’s fees. Emilie admits becoming a mum at age 25 though not on her agenda, she does not regret the path she has taken. It was not in my plan but the last two-and-a-half years in Uganda and Adam is all she thinks about. So either talking about or thinking about him imagines perhaps may not have kids for another 10 years but does not regret her decision and choice to be the mum to Adam. So will be amazing to bring Adam home as her own finally.” While Emilie received overwhelming support for her decision, some online comments question why she wants to remove Adam from his home country. She is coming back to Uganda for him so wants to continue to do that,” she said. Emilie does her best to keep Adam in touch with the village he comes to see siblings or neighbours. Emilie does her best as his mum though mother’s love is the best most important things. And Adam will never get natural biological love from his mother because unfortunately she sadly passed and he was orphaned. Adam’s story is how God turns what devil means for evil to turn to good blessings. So what is impossible with man is POSSIBLE with LORD God Almighty. God bless all the kindhearted generous donors in Jesus Name. In a similar true story a little 2year old white who girl chose black doll was asked if she did not want white doll like her. She answered both are doctors and equally beautiful playing with black doll.
God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling so pain turns to gain. God turns what the devil meant for evil to good because all things work together for good according to those called by God for His purpose. It is the worst pain or tragedy in life if the perpetrator of pain is the one meant to protect you. Yet contained in pain is an embedded seed of gain for your life and others. It may sound harsh in the midst of pain to think anything good can come out of pain, hurts, grief, loss, sorrow or any heartbreaking event. Worst of all is when suffering endured is caused by loved one or entrusted family member. This was the case of a father who beat and left for dead in the family home, an 11-year-old boy who cried out to God, ‘Why he was born.’ Miraculously over the years God showed the answer to that question and He turned the pain to gain and suffering endured into good in in life just as Romans 8:28 promises. In the book Turning Your Pain into Gain shared with you is principles from Word of God to transform hurting hearts into inner healed heart with peace of God which passes all human understanding. God will do the same for you so this book is must read for anyone suffering abuse, loss, heartbreak and tragedy. God will never give up on you and we don’t want you to give up on God.

￼ God Greatly Values you more than you ever know so once you discover God’s Love for you have inner joy and peace. God blesses through changing situations in life so your focus and attention shifts to listen more to hear God due to unforseen circumstances. Transition creates helpful spiritual growth powerful testimony in Christ defeating devil. What devil means for evil God changes to good turning curses into Blessings for His Glory. You are greatly beloved by God so as God’s beloved you are greatly Loved. ￼Although God created mankind and breathed His breath in Adam making us living beings, few people know anything about Creator Yahweh Almighty God. The Spirit of the Living God dwells in us sustaining all life and providing for all. Declare you are God’s beloved daily to remind yourself of the Great Love God has for you. Many issues in life may challenge your confidence at times to prove if you truly believe you are God’s beloved. You can truly say you are God’s beloved to triumph in Victory according to 1 Corinthians 15:56-57. Jesus overcame sting of death and sin thanks to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. God’s beloved bless many more people to confirm and reinforce what Bible says that a person’s quality of life, value and worth to God does not consist of, or depend on owned material possessions. God’s beloved appreciate God’s real Love deeply through Jesus’ Blood so enter Our Father God’s Presence boldly. Its not status, titles, postcodes, size of bank balance, clothing labels, type of plane, ship, cars owned, price tags of homes, designer bags, shoe designs, technology. The world is filled with idols wealth, fame, power, position, money, work, sexual relations, stars, celebrities, sports, even relationships. These desires as priority tend to put our trust and confidence in things or people to help meet those desires. Pride in the strength of trophy wife, marriage or any thing chosen above God HURTS God like betrayed husband or wife by unfaithful spouse. Only God is absolutely worthy of Worship as HIS Desires for us are pure and holy. God of LOVE becomes intimately involved in the affairs of mankind to save, rescue, redeem, and deliver. This is the God who is worthy of our love and devotion and no one else. So anything placed first in lives other than God is idolatry for God Says HE IS jealous God. Do not feel pain or sadness because you lack material things and so think you are nobody in life. Others treat you badly because you outwardly does not fit into exclusive class gaithered community. Attention given to material things by man as “great” is considered “chaff” or “dung” according to God in Bible because of how aquired. Precious memories gained knowing God in Christ is PRICELESS GREAT TREASURE the wise “sell all” to “buy it” in Jesus who bought us with His Precious Blood redeem us.
Lterally get rid of all junk negative thoughts and things. The word of God reveals rightly things in itself does not add value to life though improves the quality of life for a season. Bless others if not needed get rid of the excess material possessions. As one’s trash is another’s treasure give to support all considered less fortunate. Godly Love gives, blesses, transforms renewed minds to free self from heavy burdens of vanity. Release yourself from the pressures and cares of these lost world into God’s Kingdom. Getting hold of the God’s Great Truth gives liberty in Christ as best priceless treasure bringing inner joy and peace. Things of this world will soon pass away but God’s Word will stand forever and eternally in Jesus Name. Rejoice in the LORD and study God’s Words as a faithful disciple of Christ. Jesus coming soon in rapture and after restore earth. The Kingdom of God is being established throughout living history and the world is watching demolition of evil to bring in restoration of God’s Perfect Peace, Reign by Son of God Yeshua Messiah KING of Kings and Lord of lords. So be ready and prepared to join in God ‘s Kingdom for eternity on earth. Israel will be saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; and all grafted in will never be put to shame or disgraced to ages everlasting in Jesus Name according to Isaiah 45:17.
The Holy City of God Jerusalem, Mount Zion must proclaim the power of God’s majesty over Israel whose power is in the heavens says Psalm 68:34. God had Chosen Jerusalem so God’s Name is in Jerusalem.

Yet some news portray Israel in a negative light God has plans for Israel affecting the whole world. Negative views causes concerns behind latest strings of rocket attacks launched into southern Israel. These groups made no secret of desire for all of the land of Israel to be without Jewish people left in the land. The enemies of the Jewish people are still trying everything they can to wipe God’s Chosen people from the face of the earth in vain. Israel is daily reminded of the deadly serious nature of these threats facing God’s tiny nation and how vitally important is that they know that they are not alone. The extremists attacks destroy homes and burn houses of worship by hate crime. This trend against people, regardless of faith or non-faith by fundamentalists sanctions despicable actions. True vision of Judaism sees all people as created in a Divine IMAGE of YAHWEH so does not diminish or demean anyone. Jerusalem is the heartbeat of God and Israel God’s love bridge between Jews and Gentiles. Study Bible to know what God says about Jerusalem where heaven and earth met to understand impending endtimes plan coming soon involving the whole world. God is LOVE so honour and enhance the shared humanity. The anti-Semitism defamation increased tensions against the interfaith relations in Israel attacked 42 churches, monasteries, and mosques vandalized or torched in Israel over the past four years. The Church of Multiplication arsonists scrawled a phrase from Jewish Aleinu prayer on the wall of the church complex equating Christianity with idolatry in the Holy Land by Lehava radical right-wing Jewish movement. Israel urges taking a decisive action against anti-Christian extremists who cross redline damaging property and people too. Christian men of faith are often spat on in Jerusalem, shunned, fasted against to mourn their Messianic belief, harassed, intimidated, blackmailed, blacklisted,” Wadiya Abu Nasser told Army Radio, according to the Times of Israel. The hate barometer in Israel is rising, Goshen-Gottstein told HuffPost but said he is certain interfaith dialogue helps restore peace and hopes to talk to those accused of Tabgha arson and perhaps persuade them to rethink their theology. In addition punishments, should include get two months of service with the monks at Tabgha to get to know the human face of the people they hurt. Goshen-Gottstein said, “The only reason they do something like this is because they do not have genuine faith or love for their neighbours and others as God requires. Others design specific foreign policy objective pledging to eradicate them from the face of the Earth to ensure they dominate and control it. Is it really true anyone can wipe out others from the face of the earth? Sadly it is true according to the Bible in Revelation 19:15 it will be done to eradicate many people by God and Jesus plus heavenly armies. Though absolute power corrupts absolutely ULTIMATE POWER BELONGS EXCLUSIVELY ONLY to GOD the Patent OWNER of the earth and all the people. Thankfully sometimes no one is hurt THANKS to YAHWEH GOD of Israel’s Mercy and Supernatural protection plus Iron Dome missile defenses. These are urgent reality of threats facing God’s Chosen People needs realistic response. The great tribulation predicted by Jesus and prophets are global world situations seen. There is greater need for Divine intervention because the battle belongs to the Lord God JEHOVAH Nissi who Chose Jerusalem to Dwell in. KING of Kings Lord Jesus will RETURN physically to earth to rule and reign from Jerusalem Israel.

WHY DID GOD CHOOSE JERUSALEM?
Out of the whole wide world God Chose Jerusalem Temple Mount View seen from Mount Olives as HIS HOLIEST SITE ON EARTH. GOD ALMIGHTY YAHWEH is directly involved in Living World History so this is the City of God. New Jerualem will descend so God Dwells permanently on earth. So be prepared to restore and to remove the desolation sacrilege so God will take HIS RIGHTFUL PLACE OF JERUSALEM ABODE BACK. This causes major Armageddon war battle for the final show down of God’s Superpower Strength above all humanity vying for God’s Only Chosen Site to Dwell on earth. God will raise up another Cyrus in righteousness to make all his ways straight. He will rebuild God’s city and set exiles free not for a price or reward, says the LORD Almighty in the Bible in Isaiah 45:13. God’s Superior Real Estate Prowess Architectural Success means God decides a King Cyrus as done 1,500 years ago, to get back into the hottest business in the world of Third Temple building. So the idea a Temple possibly be rebuilt on the Temple Mount causes enemies of God to riot and loot, bomb cars, buildings, stab and shoot innocent civilians. The Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is where the people pray at the Western Wailing Wall. Cautious of all building in the contested territories of Judea-Samaria, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, wants God Resettlement to happen on earth. In preparation many would like God to move into Jerusalem. God made a public statement in the Bible on rebuilding the Temple Mount. Unofficial Sanhedrin council sent is asking for help in building the Temple. Though they want to do so worldwide pressure, violence, opposer’s actions makes plan seem impossible. Yet, it must happen someday. God and man toward are prepared for Grand Temple.
Foundation Stone, or Rock (Sakhrah), which is the rock beneath Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. The greatest tragedy of Israel’s history was loss of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. When the Second Temple was destroyed in AD 70, the focal point of Israel’s spiritual life disappeared along with it. In its place, the Dome of the Rock was erected between 689 and 691, after Muslims captured Jerusalem from the Christian Byzantines in the 7th century. It was deliberately built on place where First and Second Temples once stood to protect the sacred rock of God’s Holy Place. Some Muslim leaders and professors around the world insist the Holy Temples never existed, so dismiss the proven historical and archaeological excavations conducted by Jewish and non-Jewish archaeologists that there are no archeological findings connected to the Jews. The excavations conducted at the bottom of Temple Mount all yield the proof of Jews’ claim Holy Mount Temple belongs to Jehovag Nissi. The spot of the Kidron valley in 1990s excavated the Solomon’s Stables an archaeological historical site. Temple Mount Sifting Project with thousands of volunteers are recovering Temple period artifacts from debris as shown here in picture.
This floor tile Temple Mount courtyard is reconstructed from artifacts uncovered at the Temple Mount Sifting Project seen in YouTube. The First Temple was built by Solomon at Temple Mount. Though the tabernacle and altars dedicated to God preexist later temples built. God told David, “When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish throne of his kingdom forever in Bible in 2 Samuel 7:12–13. David, a shepherd boy fought Goliath and became King, desired to build a permanent dwelling place for God. But because he was a man of war and had too much blood on his hands the task of building First Temple was given to his son Shlomo Solomon, whose name in Hebrew means peace. So first Temple built by King Solomon around 1000 BC, was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC on Tisha B’av (the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av), and the Jews were exiled in Babylon.
Women praying in Western Wall tunnels, which expose an additional 485 meters of the Wall. This is a spot in the tunnel where Jewish women can be the closest to where the Holy of Holies once stood. As Jeremiah prophesied, Jewish people returned to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon (today Iraq) after 70 years. “The LORD GOD says: ‘When 70 years are completed for Babylon, will come to you and fulfill My good promise to bring you back to this place in Jeremiah 29:10. And 100 years earlier Isaiah prophesied the name of the Persian King who enabled Jewish people to return to Jerusalem, specifically to rebuild the Temple. In Isaiah 44:28: God says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that God pleases; he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”’
Model of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to be reconstructed after the first and the Second Temples were destroyed by God’s enemies. When Jews returned to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity, they re-built Temple, expanded four hundred years later by King Herod and called “The Glorious Temple.” Though a Second Temple was built Temple did not stand. In AD 70 (586 years later), on the same terrible calendar day of Tisha B’Av (the ninth day of Av) that the First Temple was destroyed, Roman army, led by General Titus, annihilated Jerusalem, razed the Second Temple to the ground, and sent Jewish people into exile. For the next 19 centuries, Jews in exile longed to return to Promised Land so Temple stands again on the Temple Mount. So devout Jews still pray 3 times daily, “May it be Thy will the Temple be speedily rebuilt in our days.” After a long wait this generation can see Temple standing in Jerusalem again God willing.
Model of Second Temple Holy Mandate is in the process to rebuild God’s Holy Sanctuary. “Have them make sanctuary for me to dwell among them in Exodus 25:8. God never withdrew His command to Israel build Him a Sanctuary. In fact, the prophet Haggai rebuked people for neglecting work of rebuilding LORD’S house. “The word of the Lord through the prophet Haggai says, ‘Is it a time for you to be living in your grand paneled houses while House of God remains ruin? stated in Haggai 1:3–4. Under the leadership of Zerubbabel, work of rebuilding Temple began. “So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant of the people. They came and began to work on the house of the Lord Almighty, their God.” (Haggai 1:14. Several organizations take God’s Words seriously up so already made the preparations.
Model of Tabernacle with the Menorah, the Table of the Showbread and Incense Altar. Third Temple Preparations are Ready so some preparations for the building of Third Temple are already completed by an organization called The Temple Institute, in the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem’s walled Old City. An Orthodox organization completed restoration and construction of many sacred vessels necessary for use in service for the Holy Temple. These are no mere replicas or models, but authentic vessels, made from gold, copper, silver and wood. The three vessels vital to Temple service completed stand ready: the menorah seven branched candelabra, the Table of Showbread, and Incense Altar all made of gold. These are gold and silver vessels used in incense and sacrificial services of Cohen HaGadol High Priest and the Levitical musical instruments. Also completed after years of research and development is the sacred garment or ephod of the Cohen HaGadol as well as his choshen breastplate and the tziz zahav (golden crown).
Temple Institute Priests train to practice Passover sacrifice using the authentic reproductions of the Temple trumpets. Rabbi Yisrael Ariel: Founder of Temple Institute of Jerusalem the mastermind behind this ambitious project. The Jewish Rabbi, Yisrael Ariel, founder and former director of Temple Institute’s renowned Biblical scholar, author of Hebrew books, including Atlas of the Biblical Boundaries of the Land of Israel, believes each and every generation of Jews is obliged to do all they can to rebuild Holy Temple. Rabbi Ariel’s belief is counter to some Orthodox Jews who believe Messiah Moshiach comes again before Temple may be rebuilt. Rabbi Ariel is zealous soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces’ paratrooper brigade, one of first soldiers to reach the Temple Mount when it was liberated by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967. On June 7, 1967, for the first time in almost 1,900 years, Jerusalem came back under Jewish control, and Rabbi Ariel was there. At that time, the vision was birthed in his heart to do all in his power to assist in the rebuilding of the Holy Temple. Twenty-one days later, on June 28, 1967, Knesset passed a decree annexing East Jerusalem bringing entire city of Jerusalem back to Jewish control.
Victorious Israel Defense Force paratroopers advanced through Old City to Temple Mountand Western (Wailing) Wall on June 7, 1967, desppite Jordan’s continued attacks and occupation of the UN Headquarters in Jerusalem. Rabbi Ariel writes in his Siddur HaMikdash Holy Temple Prayerbook, “It is difficult to describe the feeling that filled us during that extraordinary time in the life of the nation. The words ‘ringing the bells of the Messiah’ express in a limited way what was being felt in the heart. “This led to a certain sense of letdown that so many of us experienced. After all, we have arrived at the threshold of the Holy Temple: we are standing at the Western Wall where is the Messiah?” He explains that over time he realized expectations were “misplaced” and that God expected the Jewish People to be proactive in the rebuilding of the Temple. “Throughout years studies began to reveal inaction to was accountable: God does not intend for us to wait for a day of miracles. As expected to act to accomplish God’s Word to do all withibn power to prepare for rebuilding of Holy Temple, for renewal of divine service says Siddur HaMikdash, page 526. Rabbi Ariel’s vision and beliefs are shared by Temple Institute’s current directors, as well.
Kohanim discuss ritual purity required in rebuilding of the Temple. Prophecy is Significant as Scripture indicate Temple will be standing on original location on Temple Mount before Yeshua’s return. So “Know and understand: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and trench in times of trouble says Daniel 9:25. The vessels, garments, and building plans already prepared has great prophetic significance for those who await the return of Messiah Yeshua Jesus. Some think God brings New Heavenly Temple to earth so does not need third Temple. Others think a conflict over third Temple triggers the Armageddon battle as finale of devil’s rule and so usher’s in Messiah’s Rule forever. Yeshua said when the fig tree symbol for Israel blossoms, His return is imminent so He is right at the door. To learn lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know Jesus is near, right at the door stated in Matthew 24:32–34. The fact that Israel was reborn as a nation in 1948 is one of indications this generation is end-time generation. Believers Yeshua warned of end days Great Tribulation caused by the refusal to stop standing in the holy place causing desolation,’ spoken of through prophet Daniel let the reader understand and in those in Judea flee to mountains, according to Matthew 24:15-16. And this abomination of desolation with armed forces will rise up to desecrate temple fortress and abolish daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination causes desolation says Daniel 11:31. Be wise to prepare yourselves and loved ones for an evil time by deepening relationship with the Lord Jesus and God Almighty. The radical Muslims pelt Israeli police with rocks on the Temple Mount. This project of magnitude comes with many practical, religious political challenging opposition. The most obvious obstacle to rebuilding Temple is 37-acre Temple Mount rebuilt is under Muslim control. Though Israel liberated and regained control over all of Jerusalem during Six Day War 1967 control of holiest site for the Jews, the Temple Mount, given to Muslims. The answer is tragic after hard-won, against-all-odds, Israeli victory, General Moshe Dayan, Minister of Defense a secular Jew did not believe the Bible was the Word of God, met with five leaders of Supreme Muslim Religious Council at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Six Day War: (left to right) Jerusalem Commander Uzi Narkis, Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, IDF Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin, and General Rehavam Ze’evi walk through the Old City of Jerusalem. At this meeting General Dayan orders removal of Israeli flag, IDF soldiers risked lives to put on golden dome. Dayan hands over administrative control to the Arabs (a Jordanian-controlled Muslim trust or Waqf. This policy of Arab authorities control to police Israel’s most sacred site remains unchanged until today. Jews are permitted limited access to site of Temple Mount so reading of Jewish Scriptures or praying by either Jews or Christians is prohibited, despite the fact that access to holy sites is guaranteed under Israeli law. So Muslim authorities do not permit Jewish prayer on Temple Mount so the custom of praying near Western Wall developed. And as Wall is nearest ancient site Holy of Holies, the chief rabbis warn Jews not to pray or ascend to Temple Mount because they might desecrate Holy of Holies by unknowingly standing on this place where only High Priest was allowed to enter. Temple access to site is limited by a complex set of purity laws so entrance permitted to fulfil religious precept.
Israel surrounded by sea of hostile Arab neighbors bent on destruction, and with the Dome of the Rock sitting defiantly on Temple Mount, rebuilding Holy Temple seem impossible. However, Bible assures New Temple be rebuilt for God’s by men if not in this generation maybe the next. While not known the exact day Temple Mount Third Temple be is rebuilt or how soon will take place approaching Days of the coming of Messiah is very near.
God has a plan for Israel in end times, so His plans will be accomplished to fulfill His Word! Be part of what God is doing in the moment in living history. Jews fully controlled Jerusalem for 1000s of years before conflicts and invasions by God’s enemies took over. Jesus warned people the Temple will be destroyed so the abomination sacrilege imposed on the Holy of Holies Yahweh’s Sacred ground. True indeed this happened as Jesus asked the readers to understand the following living history of these events. Ensure getting best knowledge to help make informed choice concerning Israel and stop anti Semitism against God and Israel. Jerusalem fell into the hands of many despots over past centuries until the current Mount Temple escalation led to enforcing exclusion of Jews, Christians among others as Jesus predicted. So 1,400 years Jews, Christian/Islamic conflict still exist over Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Jesus wants readers to understand that the ongoing clashes lasted for centuries. World history explains the source of the conflict over Jerusalem published clearly in many article, additional headline facts of knowledge of history well known. East and West had been fighting for at least 1,500 years before first Crusade. Persians invaded Europe in an attempt to conquer the Greeks in the fifth century B.C. The Greek, Alexander the Great, attempted to conquer all of Asia, as far as India, in the fourth century B.C. The Persians east and Greeks west set up the colonial empires founded upon bloody military conquest. Romans established by military conquest colonies in Mesopotamia, northwestern Arabia, Assyria in second century A.D As a different type of conquest occurred by movement of whole tribes between the east and the west. The Goths, and Avars came from as far away as western Asia, central Asia, and China respectively in fifth through seventh centuries A.D. The Avars from northern China, Mongolia were besieging Constantinople in 626 A.D., when Mohammed was a merchant in Arabia. The Avars, by this siege, one of the forces weakened Byzantines among others to the extent most Byzantine mid-eastern empire fell relatively easily to a Muslim conquest. In 624, Mohammed led raid for booty to plunder against Meccan caravan, killing 70 Meccans for material gain. Between 630 A.D. – 632 AD till death of Mohammed in 632 A.D. Muslims led by Mohammed conquered the bulk of western Arabia and southern Palestine through approximately a dozen separate invasions and bloody conquests. These conquest “holy wars,” after Mohammed’s death in 632, the new Muslim caliph, Abu Bakr, launched Islam into almost 1,500 years of continual imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest subjugation of others through invasion and war, a role Islam continues to this very day. This history of relationship between Jews, Christianwest and Islamic east Muslim wars imperialist conquest have been launched for almost 1,500 years against hundreds of nations. The lust for Muslim imperialist conquest stretch from southern France, Philippine, Austria, Nigeria, central Asia New Guinea as policy practice of seeking to dominate economic, political affairs of countries.”
The Muslim goal was central government first at Damascus then at Baghdad, Cairo, Istanbul, or other imperial centers. The local governors, judges, and other rulers were appointed by the central imperial authorities for far off colonies. Islamic law was introduced as law, whether or not wanted by the local people. Arabic was introduced as rulers’ language, and local language frequently disappeared as slaves sold abroad. Then two classes of residents established, native residents paid a tax colonialist rulers did not have to pay. The law differed in places but the following is example of colonialist laws colonized Christians and Jews subjected to over the years:
Christians and Jews could not bear arms, Muslims could;
Christians and Jews could not ride horses, Muslims could;
Christians and Jews had to get permission to build Muslims did not
Christians and Jews paid certain taxes which Muslims did not;
Christians could not proselytize Muslims could;
Christians and Jews bow to Muslim masters when they paid their taxes
Christians and Jews lived under the law set forth in Koran, not either their own religious or secular law.
These laws allowed the local conquered people less freedom than allowed the conquering colonialist rulers. Non-Arab Muslim inhabitants of conquered lands became second class citizens behind the ruling Arabs. This classic colonialism of Cecil Rhodes was practiced globally by a group of people who settle in a distant territory in another state jurisdiction for control over who remain under political jurisdiction of their native land. “Bloody” conquest by guns were no match for the spears resistance of natives. So Christian west and Jews fight against Muslim east, almost 1,500 years of Muslim imperialist, colonialist, conquest and subjugation of others through invasion and war to the east of Arabia in Iraq, Persia, further eastward, which continues to this day.
The closest geographically, Palestine was the first Western non-Arab area invaded in Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest and subjugation of others. At the time, Palestine was under rule of the Eastern Roman Empire, ruled from Istanbul by Greeks, Eastern Orthodox Catholic. The Eastern Orthodox rule was despotic and Eastern Roman Empire was in serious decline. The Eastern Orthodox rulers were despots, and in Palestine had subjugated the large population of local Jews and Monophysite Christians. The Orthodox were imperialist, majored in religious persecution. Muslim imperialist colonialist, bloody conquest subjugation of Palestine and Egypt took place. These conquest of Palestine Israel by Muslim imperialist, colonialist bloody conquest began with a battle, the August 20, 636, battle of Yarmk with 75,000 soldiers. At first local Jews welcomed the Muslims as liberators. The Muslims had subjugated remainder of Palestine but had not been able to capture Jerusalem. Beginning in July 637, the Muslims began a siege of Jerusalem which lasted for five months before Jerusalem fell in February 638. Arabs did not sack the city, and the Arab soldiers were apparently kept in tight control by their leaders. No destruction was permitted as a triumph of ‘civilized’ control.” This conquest is very significant hallmark of Muslim colonialism began to make Christian and Jewish people to pay a tribute to colonialist Muslims. Baghdad used imperialist, colonialist, bloody wars of conquest throughout life of its empire to provide Caliphate with steady stream of slaves, made eunuchs.The Muslim conquest of Christian North Africa continued against native Berbers encountered west of Egypt. The North African people fought so strongly against Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest in the west was brought to an almost complete stop between Tripoli and Carthage for more than a quarter century. The Muslims broke through in a series of battles followed by revenge massacres of Christian opponents. This Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest continued from North Africa to Spain, Portugal, southern France, until stopped at the battle of Poiters in middle of France. The Muslims in the imperialist colonialist, bloody conquests, killed two to three times as many Christians as the Christians killed Muslims in all Crusades combined. Jerusalem’s central location appeals most to the Muslims. So after the Saladin conquered Jerusalem, victorious Saladin forbade acts of vengeance. There were no more deaths, no violence. The “Saladin’s generosity to Jews or Christian does not mention 450 years prior Muslim aggressive approach. The Crusaders and Christian or Western aggression against Islam ignores prior history of the Muslim colonialist occupation of Jerusalem. This history of Muslims, headquartered in Arabia, captured Jerusalem for 100 years chiefly under the Umayyads, Jerusalem prospered under Muslim rule. Succeeding Abbasids, rule of Jerusalem began to decline beginning 725 A.D. The decline of central Muslim government breaking away from Arabia provinces, growth of warlike revolutionary groups, growth of extremist Muslim sects and the decision Muslims to convert Christians and Jews and pagans to Islam is colonial nature of Jerusalem. Abbasids drained wealth from Jerusalem to Baghdad for the benefit of the caliphs, and Jerusalem declined economically. The language of the government became Arabic, forcible conversion to Islam became the Muslim policy. In 750, the Caliph destroyed the walls of Jerusalem, leaving it defenseless they were later rebuilt, in time to defend against the Crusaders. The history of the following 300 hundred years is complex and tangled. Jerusalem Christians and Jewish majority suffered greatly during alternating periods of peace and war. So these happenings were repeated Muslim destruction of the countryside of Israel in 970-983, and 1024-1077 in Jerusalem. The wholesale destruction by the Muslims of Christian churches by direct order of the Caliph, in 1003 and by Muslim mobs; the total destruction of Jerusalem by Caliph of Cairo in early 1020s; building small mosques on top of Christian churches; enforcing the Muslim laws limiting the height of Christian churches; attacking, robbing Christian pilgrims from Europe; attacking Christian processions in streets of Jerusalem; etc. After nearly 100 years of Muslim rule, the caliphs begun to add religious importance to conquests setting conversion to Islam important priority. It was latter caliphs without the first-hand remembrance of Mohammed distanced empire led to independent rulers being established in Spain, North Africa, Cairo, Asia Minor, etc.; and the instability of the caliphates and resulting civil wars.
The conversion to Islam after 100 years of Muslim conquest imperial colonialism had little significancs to force conversion so an aggressive approach was adopted. Jerusalem, was a particular problem as the Jews and Christians churches were significantly wealthier than the Muslims. This was in beginning of early 800s with Charlemaigne, Europe prototype foreign aid program helped churches located at Holy places in Jerusalem. Embarrassed Muslims, saw the Christian churches and monasteries outshone Muslim’s. Many churches and monasteries were run by western religious orders, report directly to Rome by western leaders appointed by Rome subject to Constantinople. Literally thousands of European Christian pilgrim made pilgrimage to Jerusalem from such places as Germany, France, and Hungary in the years 1000, 1033, 1064, and 1099). Muslim and European rulers frequently sought to enter into treaties of support with each other. As a result, Christian churches became target of Muslims by enemies against European ties in a civil war. The Christian churches were rebuilt when pro-western rulers came to power.
Muslim continue what begun 1400 years culminating in Crusades clashes between Islam and Western Christendom. These history of Islam in Jerusalem, Spain and Portugal, France in the battle of Portiers, are part of endtime living history. These conflicts continue to Armageddon battle Jerusalem. Muslim history in widespread belief of Islam east and west Christianity begun before, today’s Muslim description of current West Bank conflicts. Israel is Chosen by Yahweh allowing the Muslim control for a season to teach Jews and Christians lesson for rebellious reasons. Now God’s timetable agenda punishment season is satisfied so change is coming to Jerusalem. Behold God is doing a new thing; now it springs forth do you not know? God makes a way in wilderness and rivers in desert, Isaiah 43:19. So bringing whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not open the floodgates of heaven to pour out so much blessing there will not be room enough to store it according to Malachi 3:10.
