PRAYER HOUSE FOR NATIONS

IMG_20170609_111719
Jesus said, Temple in Jerusalem is House of Prayer for all nations on pilgrimage to Worship Yahweh. Zephaniah 14:16-17 says, all nations must come to Jerusalem to Worship KING of Kings and LORD of Lords ALMIGHTY LORD RULER of earth. Remnant survivors from nations after Armageddon go to pray in Jerusalem to Worship LORD of hosts or there will be no rain for nations that refuse to do so. This will result in droughts and famines after Jesus’ RETURN to live in Jerusalem Physically in the flesh as a Divine Being seen by all people in the world. All the nations worship God in Jerusalem after Armageddon according to God’s words in the Bible. This significant statement Jesus made is overshadowed by Jesus’ action of whipping traders in Temple for duping worshippers. Jesus entered temple area driving out those buying and selling animals at unfair prices. He overturned tables of money changers and benches of those selling doves so did not allow them to sell merchandise in the temple courts. Jesus taught them and said, “Is it not written: ‘My HOUSE will be called a HOUSE of Prayer for All Nations but you made it den of robbers’ says Mark 11:15-17.Xram
Jesus Gentle, Meek and Mild reveals His anger unseen before in that manner in Temple. Jesus Christ is compassionate, kind, heals, feeds, forgives people, calms sea, teaches word of God, prophesied. It surprised people who followed Jesus in crowds seeing Him in a different Light. This incident stands out today as Jesus’ anger out of character in the Temple in Jerusalem still affects Worship of God in some places today. Temple is important place for pilgrims all over the world for worship, festivals, other celebrations so required to sacrifice animals like dove, goat or lamb. Pilgrims from different places had different currencies used to buy from merchants who sold animals. Money changers charged large amounts to convert currency so took advantage of people who bought animals. So the system designed for profit did not help promote true worship of Yahweh. The money changers hindered God worship so Jesus’ anger was unleashed on them. God’s anger and wrath is unleashed on all who prevent GOD WORSHIP taking place globally and in Jerusalem. Those who obstruct, oppose, prevent, sabotage Worship from taking place face God’s judgement and punishment for their actions. Jesus whipped traders, turned tables to bring about change but they refused to listen. They whipped Jesus 40 times after trumped up false charges against Jesus Yeshua the True Messiah.calling-all-nations-talit
Repentance and God’s forgiveness is the solution to problem of greed exploiting others for unfair profit margins. Buying and selling is considered worldly affair but actually is seriously God’s business matter. Jesus warns the unfair traders whose practices shortchange people to change for good or face the damnation torment in hell fire as enemies of God. Hindering GOD’S PATENT RIGHT OF WORSHIP IN JERUSALEM is sin against Yahweh. Out of all cities and countries in the world the only PLACE CHOSEN BY GOD TO DWELL IS JERUSALEM. So Jesus reminds all, God’s TEMPLE is HOUSE OF PRAYER for ALL NATIONS in 4 Gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke focus on events, John interprets meaning of what Jesus said and did. Jesus stayed in Temple area healing blind and lame in Matthew 21:14. Leaders of Temple for all nations gained from people changing currency so did not conform to the Standard set by God for HIS Worship. As God’s people meet to worship HIM distraction disturb HIS true order by money loving greedy few. God’s Holy Sacred Space, set aside for Worship of God Almighty’s Temple is not revered. Greedy lovers of money, not Lovers of God dupe ordinary hard-working people’s time to worship God, exploited by the opportunist salesmen. Even God the Creator, Maker, exploited shamelessly by greedy few ruining it in House of God for Prayer for All Nations.YS-Tolerance-2011-03-10
After 2000 years Jesus endtime priority to FOCUS on Sovereign Yahweh GOD’S WORSHIP IN JERUSALEM in the Temple is an important matter once again. The Temple builders and churches raise funds to rebuild GOD’S HOUSE. People are taught to WORSHIP and LOVE GOD to trust God so not taken advantage or duped as was done in Jesus’ time. Then people paid exorbitant prices for animal sacrifice. Modern time greed is worse in some areas where people pay for things promised in the name of God but never materialise. Guerrilla business tactics shamelessly exploits people to dupe them of money they never receive true value for by such traders. The POWER in the Blood and Name of Jesus is still freely available to call on God in Jesus Name for help in time of need. Father God’s House is infiltrated during church meetings to take advantage of meetings offering pyramid schemes and prayers for sale, fees to vulnerable people, jilted spouses or those looking for material wealth and love. Riches in God’s House often made in the name of the “pillars” or “chosen vessels” fuel megarich grand greedy lifestyle by people. Jesus warns, as it was in the days of Noah and Lot so people keep on buying and selling and getting married unaware of the wrath of God. So that destruction Jesus warns about is unfolding culminating in great tribulation. The love of material things beyond measure above human life is not true mark of disciples of God. The priority of life shifts from looking unto God to supply needs to a greedy profit that starves, deprives, exploits or kills to dupe people. So God’s Temple House of Prayer for all nations becomes part of the problem not solution. The exploited are victims of such reinforced practices allowing selfish monopolist domination detrimental to life and spiritual growth, maturity, well-being. In limited confined monopolized space worshippers cannot prepare in advance to buy the animals elsewhere cheaper than relying on last-minute expensive purchase in a temple vicinity. Jesus said focus on Worship of God in House of prayer for all nations.1428808

Stop the vulnerable destructive patterns fuelling the cycle process taking unfair advantage of people worshiping God. In time of need authentic change does not happen unless the challenges faced are dealt with truly in the heart. Salvation and deliverance prayer sale is the root cause of emotional bankruptcy of life of followers of Christ tagged to the price of sacrifices like days of Jesus. God’s House demands pure heart worship not just an animal sacrifice to depend on. So Jesus’ BLOOD SACRIFICE atones for sin ONCE AND FOR ALL not by expensive animals sold in Temple or their money sacrifice. Guaranteed Christian salvation Focus is on Jesus explained by Martin Luther to churches. Licence of dependency on the purchase gains exploiting people does not point them directly to God. So they become richer in the name of God while the congregations lose out and leave as fresh members continue cycle. This is why judgement begins in House of God. Sadly creates false image of Christianity to onlookers, disappointed and put off by such actions depicting God in a bad light. It is essential to be honest not to gain the whole world to lose your soul. God prefers genuine worship not just a sacrifice so acknowledge the problem. Accept once and for all that Jesus saves lives PAID for by His LIFE and BLOOD. This issue is part of consequences of sin DNA imperfections but FIXED BY JESUS. God confidence is from direct impact of reaching God given potential in Christ. Trusting Jesus to help overcome doubts, anxieties, depression, fears, insecurities, stress, pressure or questioning without break or rest, health, problems left at Jesus’ Feet. Searching for the unrealistic gold at end of rainbow to resolve life’s problems causes exploitative patterns of behaviour as victim insists on getting a relief from such salesmen. God Honours all who honour parents, release the past to seek God’s method of help. God is not deaf or powerless to answer prayer but effects of such behaviour affect God’s HELP. Take total control responsibly in Christ to live and have being in Christ in God personally in prayer and in actions.greybacklogo2

People find inner healing as the new creation in Christ. Relationship in Christ Jesus as His disciple is based on sound Biblical Wisdom gained from studying the word of God. Godly Counsel feeds and satisfies soul, spirit, mind and body to Trust God directly, boldly through the BLOOD OF JESUS with God Confidence. Leaders run race to win too and heal by seeking First God’s Face not blessings from God’s Hands. Those in Christ Look to God to keep on the right path in life. Seek God Face as SOURCE OF HELP and God despatches help through people. So gain God Truth searching Scriptures to KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF. Believers grow from PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with God. The Bible says do not enter God’s PRESENCE without offering gift, sacrifice but do not depend on the gifts more than SOVEREIGN GOD ALMIGHTY GIVER AND SUSTAINER OF ALL LIFE. By overcoming in life gives God Strength to be stronger in the Lord’s Power to help and support each other in God’s House.jesus-with-a-whip

Regular focus of New life in Christ Jesus erases old influence so mind is renewed by future in Christ. Old ideas and habits are possible to control when new life in Christ is taken seriously, Godly Future is guaranteed in Christ. God must increase in your life in Christ and flesh decrease. Consider how God Cares and Provides beautifully for birds and flowers more than Solomon in all his glory. Challenges in life arena are conquered to overcome in Jesus by keeping life real. Unrealistic utopia expectations put pressure on the people fascinated by not thinking God’s Way. Through challenges faith grows so rely First on God. Accept plan of God to seek first His Kingdom and all things added to your life in Christ. The Key to good success in life in Christ Jesus on the whole is listen to God’s Words. Jesus Knows about you more than you think. Good success in life is in Christ in God. It does not mean spend all day and night 24/7 in prayer rather be mindful of the fact that Worship of Sovereign God with love and reverence. Jesus’ statement did not mean money must never exchange hands in church or not give in church.1150DE37505151A435252F

Jesus is teaching accurate knowledge to seek God first and blessings are added. Short-changing others by the expensive sales of animals, relics, tokens, sales to gain profit rather than true worship of God is offence to God. Freewill giving and fair trade price is required more in God’s House when buying and selling takes place. In 1 John 4:9, the LOVE of God manifests among us for God sent HIS First Born Only Son into the world, so we might live through Jesus. God in past tolerated people to come to their senses to change to submit to God. After thousands of generations of freewill to do as pleased, God is bringing CHANGE to whole world to be under HIS OWN TOTAL CONTROL again as it was before sin in garden of Eden. And people must change to belong exclusively to God or people will sadly perish. The transitions taking place in the world is part of God’s wrath against rebellious who refuse to worship God. The House of Prayer for all nations means exactly all the nations belong to God. So Jerusalem Temple for all nations welcomes all to worship God forever in Jesus Name. So Jesus disrupts routine in Temple to show sinfulness prevents God Seekers from knowing Yahweh truly. Put confidence in God not animal sacrifice extortion to gain profit. Put CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST IN GOD for one of the endtime signs is rebuilding Temple in Jerusalem. After thousands of years this will happen and Jesus will RETURN TO JERUSALEM. Israel will accept and Welcome Hamashiah Yeshua Adonai in Jesus Name in the Temple for prayer for all nations in Jerusalem.

JERUSALEM ISRAEL JUBILEE

jerus.jpg2017 is special in many ways to Jewish people and nation of Israel as June 7 marks 50th anniversary celebration of recapture, liberation, reunification of Old City of Jerusalem. Jewish military forces of 1967 in 6 Day War Recaptured Holy City of God to regain control again completely in Jewish hands after 2,000 year’s exile and oppression. Historical record shows Jews live in Jerusalem since Adam and Eve, Abraham, King David purchased the threshing floor on Mount Moriah now Temple Mount 3,000 years ago to build Altar to LORD God Almighty full price. David paid Ornan 600 shekels of gold weight for site in 1 Chronicles 21:22–25 in the Bible. Romans destroyed second Jewish Temple in AD 70 and scattered Jewish people into exile but remnant live in Holy Land ever since. The Kotel Jewish connection to Jerusalem’s eternal wall and Temple Mount prove identity of Israel here thousands of years brought back to the homeland.” Jerusalem 2017 celebrates 50th Jubilee comemorating victory and set slaves free plus cancel debts. May to June is time of Shavuot Pentecost in Jewish calendar. Shavuot Festival of Weeks celebrates God’s giving of Law to Jewish people through Moses. Yahweh God confirms covenant commitment to Jewish people’s eternal relationship between God as His Chosen people. God’s COVENANT COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP with Jewish people in real true living history demonstrates SALVATION PLAN OF GOD through this relationship. God Made Israel a Great Nation Blessed by God’s Great Name and a Blessing to Bless ALL who Bless Israel and Curse those who curse Israel. Through Israel all Families of the Earth is Blessed.” GOD Blessed Abraham and descendants as God’s Chosen people with duty of care to God and all nations. The miracle Exodus from Egypt brought the Israelites up out of slavery to settle as God’s Nation. Laws through Moses at Mt. Sinai celebrated Shavuot perfectly collaborates Coming of Holy Spirit to followers of Yeshua on day of Pentecost in Acts 2. Fulfillment of living history prophesies regarding Israel and Jerusalem point to the Great Truth of God’s Loves and Plan through Jewish people. As Role Models of God the Jewish people remain the chosen ones to fulfil God’s Plans for all nations. All nations are GRAFTED into Israel so nobody replaces Jews because of Jesus Christ says Romans 11:29, Gifts and Calling of God is irreversible. God’s Words in Bible reminds all of need for Jewish people to fulfill the relationship with God Reclaiming Messiah Coming to Restore whole through the knowledge of Yeshua. So Key to victory is accepting Jesus Yeshua Saviour whether Jewish or Gentile. Shared covenant commitment God gave through Jewish people require responsibility to share Good News with world. So Jewish people realize Yeshua is the Messiah they have long-awaited. From the biblical standpoint Jerusalem matters, political standpoint Jerusalem matters. From living history standpoint, Jerusalem matters. From the prophetic standpoint Jerusalem matters globally. ShowImageOld Testament Jerusalem living history says Israel marched 7 times in Bible in Battle of Jericho the first battle Israel conquered Canaan. According to Joshua 6:1-27, the city walls of Jericho fell after Israelite army marched around the city blowing their trumpets. Archaeological artefact and finds prove with evidence, conquest. Records name Israel in the Merneth stele erected for the Egyptian Pharaoh Meneptah c. 1209 BCE, Israel toiled, laid waste in Goshen culturally, politically as a nation perceived by the Egyptians a threat to them. Excavations discovered remains of the networks of collapsed walls dated to 1400 BCE and destruction occurred c.1500 BCE. During wars refugees escape and leave behind city so poor and old to till the land. The famine of Joseph’s time and Egypt’s food reserves campaign period meant Jews deserted Jerusalem. And captivities till mid-late 13th century meant the Jews expelled from land thousands of years after many generations. Abraham and Jacob settled in Canaan with the tribes inhabiting Jerusalem before conquest in Joshua 11:3 & 12:10 or slavery in Egypt. King David in 2 Samuel 5:6-10 as Books of Kings says Jerusalem Jebus city was reconquered by King David between 1003 BCE and 869 BCE. Joshua 15:63 says though wall was breached with great shout and fell, Judah did not get rid of the Jebusites living in Jerusalem. Jebusites live here with people of Judah according to Judges 1:21. And Jebusites continue to dwell in Jerusalem city in territory of the Tribe of Benjamin. 3,000 years ago King David reconquered city of Jerusalem in 11th century BCE from the Jebusites. Bible describes the city as heavily fortified with strong city wall. The city ruled by King David or Ir David is City of David. King Solomon extended city wall 440 BCE in Persian period and Nehemiah returned from Babylon to rebuilt wall. In 41–44 CE, Agrippa the king of Judea built new city Third Wall. Romans, Greeks, Muslims occupied Jerusalem. In 7th Century 637 CE under second caliph, Umar Ibn al-Khattab he annexed Islamic Arab Empire, granted inhabitants assurance treaty in siege of Jerusalem. Ancient Biblical prophecies to the church in Jerusalem was, “a poor, just powerful man” will rise as protector and ally to the Christians of Jerusalem. Sophronius wrote Umar, great warrior led austere life fulfilled that prophecy. Patriarch of Alexander and Eutychius said Umar paid visit to Church of Holy Sepulchre and sat in courtyard. At time for prayer he left the church and prayed outside compound, to avoid future generations of Muslims using his prayer there as a pretext for converting the church into a mosque. Eutychius adds Umar decree handed to the Patriarch prohibited the Muslims gathering in prayer at the site. In 1099, Jerusalem captured by Western Christian army of First Crusade remain in their hands until recapture by Arab Muslims led by Saladin October 2, 1187, he summoned Jews permitted to resettle in city. In 1219 walls of city was razed by Mu’azzim Sultan of Damascus. In 1229 by treaty with Egypt Jerusalem came into hands of Frederick ll of Germany. In 1239 rebuilt wall demolished again by Daud emir of Kerak. In 1243, Jerusalem came again under control of Christians so walls repaired. The Kharezmian Tartars took city in 1244 so Sultan Malik al-Muattam razed walls, rendered defenseless. Dealt heavy blow to city’s status in living history.

Suleiman in 1530 had the current walls of the Old City rebuilt in 1535–42 by the Ottoman Turkish. The walls stretch for approximately 4.5 km (2.8 miles), and rise to a height of 5 to 15 metres (16.4–49 ft), with a thickness of 3 metres (10 feet) at base of wall. The Old City walls contain 35 towers, 15 in more exposed northern wall. Suleiman’s wall had six gates and a 7th New Gate, was added in 1887; several other, older gates walled up over the centuries. The Golden Gate rebuilt and reopened by Suleiman’s architects walled up. Number of gates increased after addition of New Gate in 1887 a smaller 8th Tanners Gate opened for visitors after discovery but unsealed during excavations in 1990s. The sealed historic gates consist of the 4 partially preserved double Golden Gate eastern wall and Single, Triple, Double Gates in the southern wall. Several other gates discovered by archaeologists of traces remaining of the Gate of the Essenes on Mount Zion, gate of Herod’s royal palace south of the citadel and remains of what 19th-century explorers identified as the Gate of the Funerals (Bab al-Jana’iz) or of al-Buraq (Bab al-Buraq) south of the Golden Gate. Until 1887 the gates closed before sunset and opened at sunrise. As indicated these gates known by variety names in exist in the different historical periods by different communities. img746666Like GraecoRoman influences Islamized Jerusalem transformation of city occurs 3 times in history. The first of Jerusalem influence by Umar ibn Al-Khattab in 638 CE. The 2nd Islamization after the fall of Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and 3rd by Ayybiud rule in late 12th century by dominant Islamic culture of Mamluk and Ottoman rule. Ottoman era, turned Jerusalem multi-cultural predominantly Jewish during late 19th – 20th century. And Jordan’s annexations of West Bank of Jerusalem became Arabized. Islamic texts on city’s cosmological significance plays central role in Islamic belief. This began with Muhammad’s instruction to his followers to observe the qibla facing Jerusalem during daily prostrations in prayer. After 16 months the direction of prayer changed to Mecca in present-day Saudi Arabia. Jerusalem’s role in Islam rose 682 CE as Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr  rebelled against Damascus Islamic rule, conquered Mecca preventing pilgrims from reaching Mecca.Model-of-Ancient-Jerusalem.jpg

View of Jerusalem with Haram al Sharif. Jerusalem is not mentioned by name in Quran but in Islamic literature, Hadith as the place of Muhammad ascension to heavenly sanctuary. Arab historian and biographer of Muhammad, Al-Waqidi, mentioned al-Aqsa as one of two located in the village of The-Gi’irranah between Mecca and Ta’if. The identification of Al Aqsa with Jerusalem came by Umayyad Caliphate in the late 7th century.

1st Jerusalem Caliphate

In 638 Islamic Caliphate in Jerusalem by Arab conquest, Jews were allowed back into the city. The majority population of Jerusalem during Arab conquest was Christian. The Jewish Palestine population 300,000-400,000 inhabitants. After cultural Arabization, Islamization took place so adopted Arabic language and conversion of local population to Islam. Muslim scholars, including Mujir ad-Dib, al-Suyuti, al-Muqaddasi mosque was reconstructed and expanded by the caliph Abd al-Malik in 690 with Dome of the Rock. The project on Temple Mount, turned complex into Haram al-Sharif and Abd al-Malik replaced slipshod structure described by Arculf into the sheltered structure enclosing qibla. Jewish background living history was damaged by these construction to ‘rebuild’ Solomon’s Temple or Mihrab Dawud. Grabar and Busse claim was Islamic legitimization for Dome of Rock. Al-miraj tradition transferred to rock later. Islamic tradition from converted rabbi Kaab al Ahbar states Ayrusalaim Jerusalem Rock means Temple and God made David King of Children of Israel.IMG_20170601_174645

Independence2017AUnder Rashidun Caliphate the treaty to dwell together side by side was agreed. Rashidun caliph Umar ibn al- Khattab signed treaty with Christian Patriarch Sophronius assuring him Jerusalem’s Christian Holy places and population will be protected under Muslim rule.  When led to pray at Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest site for Christians, the caliph Umar declined to pray in the church not to establish precedent to be exploited later to convert church into a mosque. He prayed outside the church, where Mosque of Umar (Omar) stands to this day, opposite entrance to Church of Holy Sepulchre. According to Gaullic Bishop Arculf who lived in Jerusalem 679 to 688, the Mosque of Umar was a rectangle wooden structure built over ruins accommodating 3,000 worshipers.oldcity

Under Umayyad Caliphate

The Umayyad caliph constructed Dome of the Rock late 7th century. The 10th century historian al-Muqaddasi writes Abd al-Malik built shrine in Jerusalem to compete with monumental churches.  So in 400 years Jerusalem’s prominence diminished as Arab powers in region interfered for control. Under Fatimid Caliphate in 1099, expelled the native Christian population before Jerusalem conquered by Crusaders created the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Early June 1099 Jerusalem’s population declined from 70,000 to less than 30,000.

2nd Islamized Jerusalem

Under the Ayyubid dynasty

In 1187, the city was wrested from the Crusaders by Saladin who permitted Jews and Muslims to return and settle in the city. Saladin began constructing houses, markets, public baths, pilgrim hostels and religious endowments. In 13th century Jerusalem’s declined status village after city fell devalued Ayyubid rule by internecine struggles. Mamluk Sultanate in 1244 ransacked Jerusalem by Khwaresmian Tartars, decimated the city’s Christian population and drove out the Jews. The Khwarezmian Tartars were driven out by Ayyubids in 1247. From 1250 to 1517, Jerusalem was ruled by Mamluks, clashes occurred between Mamluks, crusaders, Mongols and area suffered earthquakes and black plague.

Jerusalem under Jordan 

Arab Legion destroyed synagogues yet Jordan mandated by UN to let Israeli Jews visit HOLY Sites refused access to them. Systematic destruction of Jewish Quarter includes ancient synagogues.  Under Jordan rule of East Jerusalem, all Israelis irrespective of religion forbade entering Old City and other Holy Sites. 40,000 and 50,000 tombstones of ancient Mount Olive’s cemetery desecrated. The Old City of Jerusalem, Jewish Quarter, destroyed in fightings. Tiferet Yisrael  Synagogue destroyed first, followed by destruction of Hurva Synagogue built in 1701 destroyed by Arabs in 1721 rebuilt in 1864. Israel retaliates destroying part of Mamila Muslim cemetary near the armistice line. Jordanians destroyed 56 Synagogues in Jerusalem, remaining synagogues used as toilets, stables and chicken coops. All Jewish inhabitants in parts of city occupied by Jordan and the residents of Old City Jewish Quarter expelled. Christian charities and various religious institutions prohibited from buying real estate in Jerusalem. And the Christian schools strictly regulated.

3rd Islamized Jerusalem

Arab Legion soldiers ruined Temple Mount Islamised for exclusive Muslim use. Original Israelite Jewish Holy Site is location of First and Second Temples the site subsequently location of Byzantine church and later the Mosque. Since the time of Muslim conquest Temple Mount public building’s elaborate mosaic floor, remains discovered by Temple Mount Sifting Project. In 682 CE, 50 years after Muhammad’s death, after Abd al Allah ibn -Zubayr rebelled against caliph of Damascus, conquered Mecca to stop the pilgrims to Hajj in Mecca. Abd al Mulik Umayyad Caliph responds creating new holy site Temple Mount in Jerusalem “Farthest Mosque alternative. Dome of the Rock Islamization of Temple Mount at end of 7 century, with construction of Dome of Rock in early 690s by Al-Malik was built on original Foundation Stone site of the historic Jewish Temple. This was built at southern end of Mount in 8th-century. Entire period of the Muslim conquest until capture of Jerusalem in 1099, various structures built on Mount includes memorial sites and gates. From 13th-century, Muslims gained control of city, built projects in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount to further establish city’s Islamic character. After conquest of the city by Saladin, non-Muslims permitted to set foot on Temple Mount. Al-Aqsa Mosque was built-in the early Umayyad period of rule. Architectural historian K. A.C.Cresswell refers to testimonymony of Arculf Gallic monk, pilgrimage in 679–82, notes the second caliph of Umar ibn al-Khattab erected a quadrangular building for a capacity on Haram ash-Sharif. Arculf visits Palestine in reign of Muawiyah ordered structure by Umar.

1948 to 1967 Jerusalem

Islamised Jerusalem by the Arab Legion soldiers ruins Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue, destroyed Temple Mount antiquities from 1995–2001. Islamic Waqf carried out extensive construction work to build biggest mosque in region of Marwani mosque capacity of 10,000 worshippers area 5,000 square meters. Unsupervised construction means Waqf obliterated the antiquities at Solomon’s stables section of Temple Mount. Herod structure was converted into a mosque. The structure stones were stripped of its original surface. At eastern Hulda gate, the Waqf destroyed original Herodian ornamentation and later plastered them and painted them over. Tens of truck loads of dirt were dumped into Kidron Walley. Thousands of artifacts from the First Temple period rescued in Temple Mount Sifting Project. Findings included 1000 ancient coins, Israelite bullas with ancient Hebrew inscriptions 10,000 year old tools, blade, scraper, Hasmonean, Ptolemaic and Herodian artifacts and ancient stones with signs of the Second Temple destruction and other important artifacts. Waqf justified actions on site “mosque from time of Adam and Eve” rejecting Jewish living history. In 1980 proposed Old City listed as UN Heritage added to List in 1981. In 1982, Jordan request addeds to List of world heritage centre in danger. UN opposed request at first noting Jordan government had no standing to make a nomination and that consent of Israeli government would be required since it controlled Jerusalem. 2011, 2016 UN made East Jerusalem a “part of occupied Palestinian territory yet status of Jerusalem not resolved in permanent status negotiations.” Today Jerusalem matters as never before in living history. God Chose Jerusalem HIS HOLY CITY TO DWELL PERMANENTLY. The Living history of Jerusalem CONFIRMS this City means a lot to God Almighty. Conflicts over Jerusalem will finally be resolved when God TAKES BACK HIS LAND AS PATENT LAWFUL OWNER TO SETTLE PHYSICALLY ON PERFECT EARTH. AFTER ARMAGEDDON JESUS CHRIST RULES FOREVER AND EVER. So antiChrist desolation sacrilege destroyed and HOLY of Holies restored all people join Israel to bring holiness and salvation to the whole world. Israel is God’s connecting point through God’s prophets and Messiah Yeshua Jesus Christ. The Messiah Era will bring total PEACE and end to all conflicts and wars. All people will live in PERFECT PEACE and LOVE God ALMIGHTY so FOCUS IS ON SOVEREIGN GOD to know God love, serve, and Worship God forever.  This fulfills holiness of all people in Christ and Jewish people pray for Coming Messiah and God’s salvation in Hebrew, Yeshuah יְשׁוּעָה every day. Jews say in daily prayers, “Every day and all day long we hope for Yeshua’s salvation.” In Thirteen Principles of the Faith, pray: “I await His Coming every day to Israel Jerusalem. Psalms 29:11 says The LORD give strength to HIS people! The LORD BLESS HIS people with PEACE in Yeshua Prince of PEACE! Pray for salvation of Jews and all people who wait with longing daily for the Coming of Messiah again. So salvation is near, right at your door for Revelation 22:2 testifies, “Surely Jesus is Coming soon.” Amen.

DON’T ADD TO/DELETE BIBLE

IMG_20170509_094533.jpgRevelations 22:19 says if anyone adds to the words of God or deletes taking away from the words of God it is sin God will reprove and deal with that person. Be a Berean and Study the Bible yourself and compare original texts to note changes in meaning. Deuteronomy 4:2 says do not add to or subtract God’s Commands so keep the Commands LORD God gives you. Consequences for tampering with the Word of God either adding, deleting or substrating from Bible is warned by God Who said HE WILL remove names of those who do from HIS Book of Life. The Shakespearean English translation of Bible modernised must remain true to original meaning of God. Salvation depends on Christ’s finished work on Cross so people have to abide by God’s Standards. Effort to make Bible easier to read must not destroy Central Message of the Gospel. Christ is Word made flesh Who dwelt amongs us on earth to save by Sovereign God’s Words directing us on Godpath of life for eternal salvation.hebrew-context-of-galatians-41-728.jpgWe had Bible study group meeting some time ago, taking turns to read out loud the Scriptures for particular day. A few people could not follow text and kept on asking for verses referred to. We took a look at their Bible and surprised their texts varied from ours. This happened many years ago when we realised these subtles changes, especially if you once memorised Bible verses growing up like the King James Bibles then words sound different in meaning. Those who feast on God’s Words readily notice changes. God’s Words energises to feed, protect and incapsulate you. When you revise prayer affirmations daily, at first you will not know anxiety and doubt creep in from negative misformation. So after two weeks saying praying affirmations, you will know Scripture by heart as the word daily protects you and shields you from fear and doubt. feast-on-gods-wordDo do not panic for Word of God says everybody must know word themselves. There is no second-hand faith so you have to know God’s Words yourself to save you. We noticed some Bible texts completely disappeared and today we received important message reinforcing changes taking place in Bible as follows: “A VERY CRITICAL ALERT!!! says, Hello beloved saints, I am sure you know new international version (NIV), published by Zondervan is now owned by Harper Collins who publishes Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. NIV and the English Standard Version (ESV) removed 64,575 words from Bible including Jehovah Calvary, Holy Ghost, Omnipotent a few named. Bible renews and transforms a life held in darkness to be translated to Kingdom of Glorious Gospel of Light. It is how the strongholds are broken and people set free to serve Almighty God. KJV_Matthew_24-24The opportunity to receive God’s Words is beset with opposer contenders trying to stop gladiators from winning games. Spiritual warfare tactics is used by the devil’s false Christ’s and false prophets, showing great signs, wonders to deceive itching ears. So those not well versed in word of God are deceived including the very elect as Jesus warned. The NIV, ESV has removed 45 complete verses. Most Bibles device on phones e.g OLIVE TREE BIBLE STUDY APP. Try to find following scriptures in NIV and ESV on computer, phone, device right now if in doubt: Matthew 17:21, 18:11, 23:14; Mark 7:16, 9:44, 9:46; Luke 17:36, 23:17; John 5:4; Acts 8:37 you will not believe your eyes. Refuse to be blinded by satan and do not act like you do not care. Let us remember what Lord Jesus said in John 10:10 (King James Version). These attempts are to lure and deceive people into false security of their messages but God does not approve manipulations by people bending texts to suit themselves.beware-of-faith-based-on-feelings-rather-than-gods-wordTHE SOLUTION If you must use NIV and ESV, BUY and KEEP EARLIER VERSION OF the BIBLE. A Hard Copy cannot be updated. The changes occur when they ask you to update app. on your phone or laptop etc. Buy and KEEP EARLIER VERSIONS AND STORE THEM. There is a crusade geared towards altering Bible as we know it; NIV, ESV and many more versions are affected. We are living in the last days and Jesus is Coming Soon as the Gospel is preached everywhere all the prophecies being fulfilled. The devil is working hard to try to occupy Christians with things of the world so Jesus Coming will catch them unawares. Those who reject God texts reprint own versions to suit their interpretations to seem as if Bible said so. Be sure read to original versions especially New King James changed from Shakespeare era.e9ae378a96912ce06a61f66053e47c09Please prepared there is no more time to waste. And take advantage of sms, WhatsApp, BBM, Facebook, twitter etc to send this message to all your contact. Do not ignore this source of evangelism reaching dying souls to save and rescue the perishing. God be with you always and bless you for doing His Command! This confirms what we realised many years ago as God says My people perish for lack of knowledge. The Bible says God’s Truth you know sets you free and faith comes by hearing word of God. So the church that used to cry and repent for sin, after hearing the word of God, today compromises by defending sin of changing Bible texts to suit the church. revelation-22-vs-18-19bowl-1-webedc8377f4d945edcabd547c737e12f13af1385821bbc43cffd5b7246f948ee46Accurate knowledge is so essential like Bereans to study to know the word of God to impact lives. If a person does not know the words of God they assume it opinions of man imposed on them. So reading Bible in context helps to learn to understand God better. The Bible also has many verses in different places to emphasise God’s Words for repetition to reinforce the message. Jesus answered the  devil from the Word of by saying it is written you must not tempt the LORD your God. So do not twist God’s Words to suit intentions against God’s Words to mislead people, often baby Christians in search of God’s Love. Use faith building Bible encouraging you and leading you to God not distorted versions promoting rebellion against God. They often look for error to justify the Bible is not worth believing to lure you from salvation in Christ. The word of God is Sacred Texts written in the Bible through Holy Spirit according to Timothy 3:16- 17;5:1-2 says The Bible is necessary to teach, reproof, for correction, training in righteousness for all believers not just men of God. To be able to answer Biblically from texts as God’s manual for life equips by the Word of God. The WORD of God is Alive and is sharper than a two-edged sword cutting through bones and narrow to perform changes in hearts and minds of people. Hebrews-4-2-The-Word-Is-Living-and-Active-red-copy1.jpgThis is why devil fights hard to prevent gaining knowledge from Bible because it is greatest weapon that defeats satan in the name of Jesus. Whole generations are kept ignorant from powerful words of God that gives perfect peace beyond human understanding. So to overcome adversary, Word of God must be stored in your heart and your mind to actively recall from memory to replay moment by moment, to feed your soul for hope, assurance and confidence in God. This chaotic world is a man-made version so God will restore His Kingdom for all His Children in Jesus Name. The Word of God is the Lamp to your feet and Light to your path driving away darkness. So knowing the Bible is protection armour that keeps you strong in faith not to be deceived. Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 that the very elect, if not careful can be deceived and misled by the devil. The Bible is a living word so people become living sermons to Glorify God.

7 TRUMPET SOUNDS IN SKY

Revelation 8:2 in Bible says 7 angels of God given 7 Trumpets unleash God’s wrath on earth. 3Angel at altar with golden censer incense offers prayers of all saints on golden altar before God Almighty’s Throne. Smoke of incense with prayers of saints ascends before God out of angel’s hand. 5Angel’s censer filled with Fire from Altar cast to earth with voices, thunder, lightning and earthquake. So 7 angels sound 7 trumpets in heaven heard on earth to warn people of endtimes. Trumpet sounds activate programmed events by God’s judgement destroying 1/3 earth brings New Heaven to recreate earth. The central interest of this post is to provide information to reveal and to reaffirm God’s Integrity and Majestic Beauty. Expansive meaning of God’s Love in relation to all people on approaching endtime issues deals real sense of seriousness deserved. skytrumpetsarticle.jpgmaxresdefault

The 1st angel trumpet sound causes hail fire mingled with the blood cast on earth. The third part of trees and green grass burned. The 2 angel sounds and a great mountain burning with fire cast into sea so third part of sea becomes blood. Third part of creatures in sea die, third part of ships people destroyed. 10 Third angel sounds so great star falls from heaven burning as a lamp and falls on third part of rivers and fountain of waters. 11 The name of star is Wormwood and third part of waters become wormwood so many men died of bitter waters. God does exactly as HE says in Isaiah 55:10-11, For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return but water the earth, making it bring forth food and sprouts, giving seed to the sower and bread to eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth it shall not return to me empty or void but shall accomplish that which I purpose and shall succeed in all things I sent it to do. God’s warnings to damage earth is due to the rebellion of mankind against God. This is reason for judgements on earth so repent now and be saved from God’s anger and WRATH in Jesus name.144219047663

maxresdefault-7.jpg8260410_orig12: Fourth angel sounds and third part of sun smitten, third part of moon and third part of stars; third part of the day was darkened, no sunshine, third part of night likewise. 13 Angel flying in the midst of heaven, says with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe to inhabiters of earth because of pogroms of the trumpets of the 3 angels yet to sound’s impact! On April 24, 2017 EXPLOSION ON SUN AND GEOMAGNETIC STORM HIT THE EARTH. BEFORE that on April 23rd, a dark filament of magnetism on Sun exploded. Bible predicts as confirmed by NASA in Revelations 9 as fifth angel sounds trumpet great star falls from heaven causes damage destroying 1/3 of planet, kills many people by storms, fires, craters, tsunamis, tornadoes. The star asteroids, meteorites, comets hit earth as sun’s large prominence Solar flares produce high energy particles radiation ripple effects, dangerous to living organisms. The angel given key of bottomless pit opens pit and smoke rises out of pit as great furnace. The sun and air darken by smoke of pit, 3out of smoke locusts upon earth given power as scorpions to hurt kill God’s enemies. Stars, comets meteorites fall on earth.0e1412003_end-of-the-world

the-end-of-the-world-2012nintchdbpict0002689652244God Commanded not to hurt grass of earth or green trees only those who do not have seal of God on foreheads. 5 Told not to kill but torment them five months and their torment was torment of a scorpion striking mankind. Those men will seek death but not find death and shall desire to die and death shall flee from them. The shapes of locusts are like horses prepared for battle and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold and their faces were as faces of men. They had hair as hair of women, their teeth as teeth of lions. 9 They have breastplates of iron and sound of wings like chariots of many horses running to battle. 10 Their tails like scorpions and there were stings in their tails and their power was to hurt the men five months. Revelation 8:1 says 7th seal opens there was Silence in heaven 1/2 hour due to unrelenting catastrophic pogroms on earth. 8:11 says  their evil king angel of bottomless pit’s name in Hebrew is Abaddon in Greek Apollyon12 One woe is past so comes 2 more woes when trumpet sounds. Bible documents living history of God’s track record of the past worldwide destructions of people for sin so is not a metaphor. The mysterious strange sky trumpet noises sounding again and again, heard worldwide is directly from Almighty God in heaven is the accurate correct meaning explained.

These 7 Trumpets Sound Loudly from heaven are all Bible Revelations for the endtime real living history warning mankind of all current changes taking place on the earth. God’s direct control enforces changes on earth due to permissive will of mankind. Two categories of people on earth are those sealed by God and protected to be saved by Rapture. The other category are left behind and given final chance to ensure they belong to God or forever destroyed. Choice to be saved is entirely mankind’s decision of membership group to belong to. So accepting God Plans and Purposes Stands Forever but wicked destroyed in hellfire. If you hear Sounds of trumpets pray to God to forgive, save you and all loved ones in Jesus Name. It is not God’s will anyone should perish, remind God for loving you so much HE sent Jesus to Save you, thank God and wait for Jesus Our Lord. I personally heard the sounds 3 times in summer last year and 2:20am 24th April 2017.

Bible indicates in Revelation 7 trumpets sounds before end of age and Second Coming of Jesus Christ. 5 of 7 already sounded, evidenced in critical moments in history. The unfolding 3rd world war, is triggering events of 6th trumpet that already begun. Biblical prophecy events already passed so guides what to expect in final 2 trumpets sounds. Revelation 8:7, John’s apocalyptic vision explains the triggering event of the sounding of the first trumpet 33% of all of grass and trees in the world are destroyed. During World War 1and 2, large amounts of the artillery shells and the chemical agents released on warfare troops killed over 8 50 million people. Soldiers burned vast tracts of land to eliminate natural or man-made items enemies could use. 2nd trumpet Revelation 8:8-9 explains ships involved in conflict destroyed one third of ships were sunk. Nuclear bomb deployed at Hiroshima burnt people as fire. 3rd Trumpet, Revelation 8:10-11, prophet explains star Wormwood, will fall and affect a third of the waters. God prompted Irvin that ‘Chernobyl’ disaster in Ukraine in 1986, means “Wormwood” in Russian. Nuclear radiation destroyed power plant contaminated more than 33 percent of water supply in Europe and Western Asia, killing thousands and affects hundreds of thousands of other citizens with diseases from radiation. 4th Trumpet in Revelation 8:12-13 says sound affects length of days  shortened, and sun would does shine for a third of the day. Time shortened so days around the world experienced differently. After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, “new world order” with a new age of globalization began to develop. Reagan challenged Gorbachev to “tear down wall!” and 29 months later 4th trumpet sounded. 5th Trumpet prophecy, sound bottomless pit fires causes massive amount of smoke to block light of sun. During Gulf war Iraqi soldiers ignited over 700 oil wells around deserts of Kuwait the largest, underground wells of oil on the planet. Smoke entered atmosphere and blocked sunlight 3 months. Saddam Hussein’s name means “Destroyer” or “Abaddon” in Hebrew described Revelation 9:11, battles with United Nations, Middle East still under turmoil. 6th Trumpet sound starts near Euphrates River waterway traverses Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran, comprise Middle East. Revelation 9:13-21 indicates 4 angels command army of 200 million individuals soldiers. main-qimg-c9bec064878d2757a951cc58ba0b3f96-c the Armageddon endtime war of countries united to against fight God Almighty by a new world-dominating governments established under antiChrist. Great war removes Abomination of Desolation in Great Tribulation. 7th Trumpet sounds affects all human beings as at Trumpet Sound Jesus Christ and angels Rapture all saints with the MARK OF CHRIST in eternal reward but pass His judgment on all left behind inhabitants on earth. This marks end of human government and Establishment of Kingdom of God, on earth, for one thousand years. At this endtime the Bible prophescies come to pass to prove the power of God’s WILL. To learn about what Bible teaches and how to understand the end time, join us during our regular television and radio broadcasts. More information about 7 trumpets get copy The 7 Trumpets DVD from Understanding Endtime Series. The Trumpet heard from God in heaven is the reason of research to write on this topic. The sounds are too unique unlike any other dezibel depths of sounds ever heard on earth before in sky in many countries. Many people record videos on YouTube so good to know that other people hear these trumpet sounds too and document them globally. Bible prophecies are now being fulfilled right before our very ears and eyes, Matthew 24:33 says when you see all these things, know it is near, even at the doors. Again confirmed in Mark 13:29 that when you see these things taking place know Jesus Yeshua Messiah is Near at the door. And when you see these things happening be sure He is your Saviour and rejoice for your very salvation is at hand in Christ. Take God seriously before it is too late to be saved. Trumpet sounds directly warn us as signs from God in heaven so mourn for woes unfolding on earth. Not entertainment but relevant information to save lives so be prepared and ready for Rapture. Be aware of dangers falling upon earth due to sin against God. Be on high alert as God’s wrath unfolds, pray for mankind to saved. God says because of PRAYERS of saints and remnants, HE WILL HEAR the PRAYERS, HAVE MERCY, FORGIVE IN JESUS NAME. GOD SAYS GIVE HIM NO REST DAY OR NIGHT TO SHORTEN THE EVIL DAYS OR NO ONE WILL SURVIVE HIS WRATH ON EARTH. Each voice of prayer is heard by God so pray directly yourself to God to answer, forgive you to save you in Jesus Name. Praise God. Romans 10:9-10 says, if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised him from death you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified and with your mouth confess Yeshua and saved.

THE MIRACLE GIFT OF ADAM

Emilie Larter and Adam

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.Emilie Larter and Adam

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. AdamEmilie 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.

JESUS COMES TO JERUSALEM

Christ enters Jerusalem before resurrection in Matthew 21:1 – 11. Jesus entered God’s HOLY City near the culmination of long journey toward Golgotha as He came to save all lost in Luke 19:10 by salvation. Palm Sunday marks start of Passion Week seven days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Palm Sunday was beginning completing Jesus’ work on earth. Palm Sunday begun with Jesus and His disciples traveling over Mount Olives. Jesus sent two disciples ahead into the village of Bethphage to collect an animal to ride. They found unbroken colt of a donkey, just as Jesus had said they would in Luke 19:29–30. So they untied the colt as the owners began to question them. The disciples responded with the answer Jesus provided: “The Lord needs it” in Luke 19:31–34. The owners were satisfied so let disciples go. “They brought the donkey to Jesus, and threw their cloaks on the colt and then put Jesus on it” in Luke 19:35.holyweeki021.jpg
As Jesus ascended toward Jerusalem, a large multitude gathered around Him. This crowd understood Jesus was the Messiah; what they did not understand was it was not time to set up kingdom yet although Jesus had tried to tell them so in Luke 19:11–12. The crowd’s actions along the road give rise to name “Palm Sunday.” A large crowd spread cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road” (Matthew 21:8). In strewing their cloaks on the road, people were giving Jesus the royal treatmen King Jehu was given similar honor at his coronation (2 Kings 9:13). John records the detail that the branches they cut were from palm trees (John 12:13). On first Palm Sunday, the people honoured Jesus verbally: “The crowds went ahead of him and those followed shouted, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ Blessed is He who comes  in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in highest heaven! in Matthew 21:9. In praise of Jesus, the Jewish crowds quote Psalm 118:25–26, an acknowledgment of prophecy of Christ to a Messianic psalm drew resentment from religious leaders present: “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, rebuke your disciples! in Luke 19:39. Jesus saw no need to rebuke them but said “I tell you if they keep quiet the stones will cry out in Luke 19:40. 450 to 500 years prior to Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, prophet Zechariah had prophesied the event we now call Palm Sunday: “Rejoice greatly, Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughters of Jerusalem!  See, your king comes to you, righteous, victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey colt, the foal of a donkey” in Zechariah 9:9. Prophecy was fulfilled indeed so time of rejoicing, as Jerusalem welcomed their King. Unfortunately, the celebration was not to last. The crowds looked for a Messiah who would rescue politically and free them nationally, but Jesus had come to save them spiritually. Yet mankind’s primary need is spiritual, not political, cultural national salvation.
1154075-Palm-Sunday-Crowd-3.jpg
Even as the coatless multitudes waved the palm branches and shouted for joy, they missed the true reason for Jesus’ presence. They could neither see nor understand the cross. That’s why, “as [Jesus] approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you in Luke 19:41–47. It is a tragic the Saviour was not recognized by all Him for who He is. The crowds crying out “ Hosanna” on Palm Sunday cried out Crucify Him! later same week in Matthew 27:22–23. There is coming a day that every knee will bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the FATHER according to Philippians 2:10–11). All worship will be real as John records scene in heaven of eternal celebration of the risen Lord: “There before me was a great multitude no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes, were holding palm branches in their hands” in Revelation 7:9-10. These palm-bearing saints shout, “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on Throne and the Lamb” and who can measure sum of their joy?Domingo-de-Ramos.jpg

What is the Passion Holy Week?”

Answer: Passion Week known as Holy Week is the time from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday Resurrection Sunday. Passion Week or Holy Monday HOLY Tuesday called Spy Wednesfield, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and HOLY Saturday. Passion Week is named because of the passion with which Jesus willingly went to the cross to pay for the sins of people. Passion Week described in Matthew chapters 21-27; Mark 11-15; Luke 19-23; and John 12-19. So Passion Week begins triumphal entry on Palm Sunday on back of a colt as prophesied in Zechariah 9:9. Passion Week contains several memorable events Jesus warned about including destruction of temple, desolation sacrilege, great tribulation rapture, His Second Coming to the earth to rule after the Armageddon war. IMG-20170326-WA0000Jesus cleans Temple for second time in Luke 19:45-46, disputed with Pharisees regarding His Authority. He gave Olivet Discourse on endtimes and taught many things of the signs of His second coming. Jesus ate His Last Supper with His disciples in the upper room in Luke 22:7-38, then went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray as He waited for His hour to come. It was here that Jesus, betrayed by Judas, was arrested and taken to several fake trials before chief priests, Pontius Pilate, and Herod Luke 22:54-23:25. After trumped trials, Jesus was scourged by the Roman soldiers, forced to carry His Cross on the streets of Jerusalem along Via Dolorosa or way of sorrows. Jesus was then crucified at Golgotha on the day before Sabbath, was buried and remained in the tomb until Sunday, the day after the Sabbath, and then gloriously resurrected. Passion Week time of Jesus Christ truly revealed His passion for suffering as He willingly went through on our behalf. Important humble attitude honours Passion Week. We should be passionate in our worship of Jesus in proclamation of His Gospel! Jesus suffered for us willing to suffer to shed His Blood for salvation of mankind cause of following Him and proclaiming message of His death and resurrection. During Palm Sunday Mass, palms are distributed to parishioners who carry them in a ritual procession into church. The palms are blessed with holy water. People are given small crosses made of palms taken home with them. Later these are burnt to create the ashes that are put on people’s heads on an Ash Wednesday before Lent starts following year.  If palm trees not grown, flowers or olive branches are used instead. The KING of Kings Jesus loves all people so gave His life and shed His Blood for all.e7cd4d0f0f2c3fdc8f983430ec80993f

Triumphant Entry Song:

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes Hosanna cry;
O Savior meek, pursue Thy road
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die!
O Christ! Thy triumph now begin
Over captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
The wingèd squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
The last and fiercest strife is nigh!
The Father on His sapphire throne
Expects His own anointed Son.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die!
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O God! Thy power and reign.
