God’s Consuming Spiritual Fire Power is again demonstrated in preserved prayer room saved intact despite devastating fire that destroyed the Bethel Community Church. A miracle happened at the heart of the church when God’s Supernatural Fire POWER saved HIS WORDS recorded in sermons. The Bible says God puts HIS WORDS ABOVE HIMSELF so human fire did not destroy God’s preserved words on tape. Even in the midst of adversity, tragedy or spiritual attacks God always comes through with a testimony of His Word. In this case literally preserving precious priceless sermons that GLORIFIED HIS Holy Name. The father of current pastor passed into heaven 18 months ago and heaven and the angels ensured God’s words did not perish. The prayers of the righteous avails much as proved by the Holy Presence of God in the church. The Bethel Community Church prayer room survived unscathed in the devastating fire which tore through the church. The pastor of the fire-ravaged church said it is “quite incredible” that a prayer room survived relatively unscathed. Worshippers speculated a “spiritual fire” protected the room, Pastor Andrew Cleverly said. Mr Cleverly is hoping to retrieve tapes of his late father’s sermons which are stored in the room. About 95 firefighters and police officers responded on 15 June but it took until the following evening to put out the blaze. A 43-year-old man and a woman, aged 36, were arrested on suspicion of arson released pending further inquiries. An image released from inside the church shows a room and furniture within it apparently untouched by the fire. “Pastor Andrew Cleverly called for the community to “stand up and be strong” after the fire. Mr Cleverly said some of the community had “found comfort” in the belief that its use as a prayer room had shielded it from the fire. It is quite incredible really,” said Mr Cleverly, who got image from engineer. “Said it was left untouched. And there was no fire door, I think it was just a wooden door. “People are taking comfort in the belief that the reason the room was still intact was because of Spiritual Fire which the ordinary fire could not penetrate.Mr Cleverly’s father was the former church pastor who passed away 18 months ago said the room was used to store audio tape recording of father’s sermons. “When it is safe to do so, will to try and retrieve them,” he said. And a special service will take place nearby at Havelock Street Presbyterian Church from 15:00 BST on Sunday. “It will be a special time of reflection and a time to come together,” added Mr Cleverly. “I would like to thank the Havelock Street Presbyterian church which has very, very generously offered us a space for worship.”The Pastor has thanked Havelock Street Presbyterian Church for offering his congregation a place to worship. He also thanked the community and the local businesses for supporting the church. “Sometimes it takes something like this that shows how a community comes together,” he added. The 130-year Grade-II listed Bethel Community Church on Stow Hill in Newport was destroyed after a fire spread from an old nightclub next door. The significance of this true story is at times tragedy destroys physical structures and the material possessions but God helps to strengthen faith and the Spirit of God in believers encourages us to continue by faith because it is well with our soul in Christ Jesus Name. Material things and structures can be replaced but the Spirit of God in mankind is irreplaceable for eternal salvation.
Jerusalem at the time of Jesus and temple is different from modern times. Acts 15:16 says God and Messiah Yeshua will build a temple on Temple Mount Zion. God intervenes to choose a people for HIS NAME from Gentiles. 15 The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written: 16 “After this Jesus will Return and rebuild David’s fallen tent, Its ruins Jesus will Rebuild and Restore Temple. 17 The rest of mankind will seek the LORD God Yahweh, even all Gentiles who bear MY NAME, says the LORD God Yahweh, WHO does these things’ 18known from long ago. Joel 2:1 says blow the Temple in Mount Zion and announce the coming days of the LORD Yahweh. And Yeshua Rebuilds Mount Zion is significant spiritually as He predicted fall of Temple in His days destroyed, no stone was left standing of that particular Temple. Jesus is Absolutely correct because specific Temple of His day was destroyed.
Tabernacles constructed by Moses, Bezalel and Oholiab in the wilderness Isaiah 33:20 were brought to Mount Zion as a centre of worship of YAHWEH before the days of Jesus, King David and Solomon’s Temples among the many other previously destroyed Temples. Isaiah 33:20. Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a peaceful habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be plucked up, neither shall any of the cords be broken. Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the end of days, that mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established at top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 Many peoples shall go and say: ‘Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob and He will teach us His ways and walk in His paths.’ Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 50:4 In those days and in that time says the LORD, the children of Israel shall come with their children and Judah together; they shall go on their way weeping, and shall seek the Lord their God. 5 They shall inquire concerning Zion with joy on their faces saying ‘Come and join yourselves to the LORD in everlasting Covenant that shall not be forgotten.’ 6 My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place. The real Chabod Shekinah Glory of the LORD Yahweh will reappear again on Mount Zion because God Chooses to do so. Isaiah 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole habitation of mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and shining of flaming fire by night for all the Glory shall be canopy. 6 There shall be a pavilion for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain.
Another significant event in history of Israel is conquest of Jericho led by Joshua. The walls of Jericho falling down, recorded in Joshua 6:1-27 by God’s miracle power. Destruction of Jericho regains their inheritance on return from captivity in Egypt. The people of Israel crossed the Jordan River into the land of Canaan in Joshua 3:14 -17 back to their land of milk and honey God promised Abraham over 500 years in Deuteronomy 6:3, 32:49. After forty years in wilderness desert of Sinai the people of Israel arrived on eastern banks of the Jordan. To take land of Canaan back they started from the city of Jericho in Joshua 6:1 from the walled city. Excavations reveal fortifications featured a stone wall 11 feet high and 14 feet wide with smooth stone slope, angling upward at 35 degrees for 35 feet, joined to massive stone high walls. It was virtually impregnable so ancient warfare used assault or surrounded city and people starved into submission. Invaders weakened the stone walls with fire, tunneling, heap up mountain of earth to serve as a ramp methods of assault took weeks or months, and the attacking force usually suffered heavy losses. Strategy used to conquer city of Jericho was unique as laid out by God for people to march silently around Jericho six days on seventh day march seven day with a loud shout. When people shouted, the walls collapsed and Israel won the victory. God restored the city of Jericho to them im Joshua 6:2, 16. People of God by faith, followed the commands of God so walls of Jericho fell down in Joshua 6:20. In Isaiah 4:5, Chabod or Glory of the LORD, Cloud or pillars of smoke and fire in wilderness shows Presence of God to reassure the children of Israel on their way to Canaan Land out of Egypt. The issue of location is now a major issue and conflict. Yet like any other old cities rebuilt or renamed over the centuries, there is bound to be mix ups of vital details and information lost in translation. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion. So Isaiah 66:1 says, Thus saith the Lord: the heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool; where is the house that ye may build unto Me? And where is the place that may be My resting-place? Zechariah 8:2 ‘Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great fury. 3 Thus saith the LORD: I return to Zion, and will Dwell in the midst of Jerusalem and Jerusalem shall be called City of Truth Holy mountain of LORD of hosts.
Isaiah 28:11 For with stammering lips and with a strange tongue shall it be spoken to this people; 12 To whom it was said: ‘This is the rest, give ye rest to the weary; and this is the refreshing’; yet they would not hear. Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the ancient paths, which is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it. Isaiah 27:12 In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up one by one. 13 That day a Great Trumpet will Sound and those perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship LORD on Holy mountain in Jerusalem.
God Chose Zion HIS desired Habitation in Scripture states many times Zion is correct Temple location. The following passages make clear mention of this and many more verses apart from these cited here can be examined to maintain the same point. The first Psalm of King David as follows says: Psalm 132:1, LORD, remember David and all his sufferings. 2 He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 “I will not enter my house or go to my bed, 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.” 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar. 7 Let us go to HIS Dwelling place, let us worship at HIS footstool saying, 8 Arise, LORD and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might clothe your priests your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.'” 10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one. The whole City of Jerusalem is called tha City of David not just his palace, courtyards and garden grounds or altar built in a Tent for Yahweh. During conquest of Jebusite stronghold Zion now called Jerusalem, Joab the Chief Captain expanded City of David upwards to Millo near rest of the city. And Chief Captain built and repaired ruins damaged by conquerors who took people into exiles. Solomon built his Temple, palaces, gardens on expanded to the Temple Mount area in the City of David.
11 The LORD Swore Oath to David, a sure Oath HE will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. 12 If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.” 13 For the LORD has CHOSEN Zion, HE has desired it for his dwelling, saying, 14 “This is My Resting place forever and ever; here I will Sit Enthroned for I desire it.15 I will bless her with abundant provisions her poor I will satisfy with food.16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy. 17 “Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown. Isaiah 24:23, The moon shall be confounded and sun ashamed for the LORD of hosts will Reign in Mount Zion and Jerusalem, before HIS elders shall be Glory. Psalm 48:2, Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised in the City of our God, His Holy mountain, 3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion the uttermost parts of the north, the City of the Great KING. 4 God in HIS palaces made Himself known as a stronghold. Psalm 87:1 A Psalm of the sons of Korah sang: His foundation is in Holy mountain.2 The LORD loves gates of Zion more than all dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of City of God.
Obadiah 1:17, In Mount Zion there shall be those that escape, and it shall be Holy; and the house of Jacob Israel shall possess their possessions. Joel 3:5, And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as the LORD said among remnant whom the Lord shall call. Joel 4:16 And the Lord shall roar from Zion,and utter His voice from Jerusalem and the heavens and earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge unto His people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain; then shall Jerusalem be Holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. 18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall flow with waters; and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. 19Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah shall be inhabited for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21And I will hold innocent their blood that I have not held as innocent, the LORD Dwells in Zion.
Deuteronomy 12:1 These are the statutes and the ordinances, which ye shall observe to do in the land which the Lord, the God of thy fathers, hath given thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. 2 Ye shall surely destroy all the places, wherein the nations that ye are to dispossess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every leafy tree. 3 And ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and burn their Asherim with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods; and ye shall destroy their name out of that place. 4 Ye shall not do so unto the Lord your God. 5 But unto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even unto His habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come; 6 and thither ye shall bring your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the offering of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill-offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock; 7there shall eat before the LORD your God and you shall rejoice in all you put your hand to and your household the LORD your God has blessed you.
Psalm 87:2-3 says, The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are said of the City of God.” Zion is synonymous with city of God, and it is a place that God loves. Zion is Jerusalem. Mount Zion is the high hill on which David built a citadel. It is on the southeast side of the city. The word Zion occurs over 150 times in the Bible. It essentially means “fortification” and has the idea of being “raised up” as a “monument.” Zion is described both as the city of David and the city of God. As the Bible progresses, the word Zion expands in in spiritual meaning so Zion and Jerusalem refer to the same City, indicating physical and spiritual location of the HOLY City. The word Zion means ‘marked’ as ‘distinctive’ with inner qualities distinguishing Jews as Chosen ‘people who dwell in covenant with God’s unique spiritual traits, terms and conditions.
The first mention of Zion in the Bible is in 2 Samuel 5:7, “David captured the fortress of Zion to build the City of David.” Zion originally ancient Jebusite fortress in the City of Jerusalem. After David’s conquest of the fortress, Jerusalem became a possession of Israel. The royal palace was built there and Zion Jerusalem became the seat of power in Israel’s kingdom. When Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, meaning of Zion City expanded further to include the temple area in Psalm 2:6, 48:2, 11:12, 232:13. In the prophecy of Jeremiah 31:6, “Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.” In Isaiah 40:9, Old Testament Zion name for the City of Jerusalem includes the land of Judah according to Jeremiah 31:12. The nation of Israel as a whole is called Zion in Zechariah 9:13. The word Zion in theology in a spiritual sense in Scripture means figuratively to Israel as the people of God in Isaiah 60:14. In New Testament, Zion is God’s spiritual KINGDOM for believers to come “to Mount Zion and to the City of the living God in the heavenly Jerusalem as stated in Hebrews 12:12. Peter, said quoting Isaiah 28:16, Christ is Cornerstone of Zion: “See, I lay a Stone in Zion chosen precious Cornerstone and one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame in 1 Peter 2:6.
Mount Zion as a geographical area currently is a center of dispute. The Bible is clear, one day, Zion will be the Sole Possession of the Lord Jesus and Zion the nation and City will be restored. “Awake, awake, Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion, Clothe yourself in your beautiful garments O Jerusalem, the HOLY City for the spiritually uncircumcised unclean will no longer come into you says Isaiah 52:1. The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you and all who despise you will bow down at your feet and call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel according to Isaiah 60:14. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion. David’s declaration in 1 Chronicles 22:1, says David in the Psalms state Zion is for God as the reserved place where the LORD God would dwell. The temple was located at Zion from time David brought the Ark into Jerusalem until they took it to temple on Mount Moriah. The Temple belonged at Zion but due to wars fought by David Ark was often hidden in secret locations in Scripture as Mount Zion the highest point of elevation than Mount Moriah.
In 2 Samuel 6:16 And it was so, as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart. 17 They brought in ark of the Lord and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Nahmanides in Jerusalem In the year 1322 Estori Farhi was in Jerusalem; and his “Kaftor wa-Ferah” (ch. vi.) gives archeological description of city (Eng. transl. in “Itinerary” of Benjamin of Tudela, ii. 393; German, in Zunz, “G. S.” ii. 268). According to Farhi, Jerusalem was three parasangs long. He mentions the entrance to the Cave of Hezekiah (B. K.16b), within the walls of Jerusalem to the north; the tent erected by David for Ark, in a place called “David’s Temple,” south of Mt. Moriah (comp. “Yihus ha-Abot,” p. 25); northwest of this was a place where a synagogue and the Jewish quarter (see David b. Zimrah, Responsa, No. 633). The city of Jerusalem is, according to him, higher than Mt. Moriah and higher than the synagogue.
In 2 Samuel 5:4-9 King David takes stronghold of mount Zion where he was mocked that the blind and lame shall not come in there. The spiritually blind and lame cannot come into the HOUSE of God metamorphoricaly speaking. All must know God for themselves and His Words in Scripture. 1 Chronicles 11:4 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem the same is Jebus and Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. 5 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David: ‘Thou shalt not come in hither.’ Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion; the same is the city of David. 6 And David said: ‘Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain.’ And Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and was made chief. 7 David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore they called it the city of David. 8And he built the city round about, from Millo even round about; and Joab repaired the rest of the city. Isaiah 33:5 the Lord is exalted, for He dwelleth on high; He hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness. The House of God will stand at the HOLY site that is most suited for prayer as it is written: “God’s Eyes are opened towards HIS HOUSE night and day, towards the place HIS NAME IS, to HEAR the prayer Your servant will pray toward this place. And You shall hear the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Israel that they will pray toward this place.” Isaiah 33:20 Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings your eyes shall see Jerusalem a Peaceful Habitation, a tent shall not be removed, the stakes shall never be plucked up, neither shall the cords be broken ever again.
This information locates Zion to conclude though previous temples located at Zion were destroyed, 2 Samuel 5:8 refers to a landmark water shaft. “Water shaft” is rendered “quarry tunnel stretching beside Temple for washing and purification required” in the 1917 Jewish Publication Society Tanakh. Scripture notes other landmarks located with certainty today to establishes the western boundary of the City of David in ancient times is the water channel built by King Hezekiah. And in 2 Chronicles 32:30, Hezekiah stopped the upper spring waters of Gihon and brought them straight down on the western side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of messenger of good tidings, that announce PEACE, the harbinger of good tidings, announces salvation; saying to Zion: ‘Your God Reigns!’ 8 The watchmen lift up their voice, together to sing; for they shall see, eye to eye, the Lord returning to Zion. 9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted His people, He hath redeemed Jerusalem. 10 the LORD has made bare His HOLY ARM in the eyes of all the nations and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
The Millo in this ancient map in Hebrew: המלוא was a place in Jerusalem first mentioned in 2 Samuel 5:9 and in Chronicles and Kings. It is part of the expansion of the City of David built by the Jebusites before conquest by David with Joab and Israelites. Joab specifically expanded David’s City into Millo nearby Solomon’s Temple. Millo was rebuilt and repaired by Solomon. There is archaeological and historical site of Millo from ancient Israel and ruins of Millo as Stepped Stone Structure uncovered by Kathleen Kenyon and Eilat Mazar connected Millo to the recently discovered large stone structure. Excavation by Eilat Mazar directly above the Stepped Stone Structure shows this structure connects and supports the large Stone Structure. Mazar presents evidence that the Large Stone Structure was an Israelite royal palace in continuous use from tenth century as part of a single, massive royal palace. This biblical reference to Millo as the House of Millo in II Kings 12:21 and II Chronicles 24:25 was the place where King Joash lived until 799 BC. Millo is derived from “fill” in Hebrew milui). The stepped stone support structure is built of fills. In Samuel, Millo is mentioned as the boundary of King David’s construction while building up the City of David after capture of Jerusalem from Jebusites. Millo is translated literally as Landfill or supporting terraces.
Hezekiah’s repair of the Millo is mentioned in repairs to military fortifications, and several scholars agree connection to military tower citadel or significant part of a wall. It was embankment flattened slope between Ophel and the Temple Mount. Isaiah 46:13 God brings near HIS righteousness not far off and HIS salvation shall not delay and WILL place salvation in Zion for Israel HIS Glory. Amos 9:11 In that day GOD WILL I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old. 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom and all nations, upon whom My NAME is called, says the Lord WHO does this. 2 Chronicles 5:2 Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all heads of the tribes, the princes of the fathers’ houses of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the Covenant of the Lord out of the City of David in Zion. 2 Samuel 6:16, As ark of the LORD came into the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord and despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent David pitched for it and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Acts 15:16 After these things I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen, and will rebuild its ruins, and will set it up, 17 so that the residue of men may seek out the Lord, and all the nations on whom my name is invoked, saith [the] Lord, who does these things 18 known from eternity.
Lower Eastern Hill City of David
Mount Zion name of the Jebusite fortified city on the lower part of ancient Jerusalem’s Eastern Hill, known as City of David where he built his palace but Zion extends outwards to include: According to the 2 Samuel Mount Zion the site of the Jebusite fortress called the “stronghold of Zion” that was conquered by King David then renamed and partially rebuilt by him as the “City of David”, where he erected his palace, courtyards. Upper Eastern Hill Temple Mount was First Temples and Tabernacles precede Solomon’s Temple erected at the top of the Eastern Hill on “Mount Zion.” After the conquest of the Jebusite city, its build-up area expanded northward towards uppermost part of the Eastern Hill. The highest point became site of Solomon’s Temple. The identification of pre-Israelite Jebusite and Israelite towns on the Eastern Hill is based on existence of only one perennial water source in the area, the Gihon Spring and archaeological excavations revealing sections of the Bronze Age and Iron Age city walls and water systems. The “Mount Zion” mentioned in Isaiah 60:13- 14 and in Book of Psalms and First Book of Maccabees (c. 2nd century BCE) to refers to top of the hill Temple Mount.
Western Hill Mount Zion
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever says Hebrews 13:8. The Son of God and Saviour of mankind, Chosen by God Rules God’s Kingdom eternally. Jesus is alive and well in heaven so did not evolve into another person and is not reincarnated as anyone else. Jesus is the Lamb of God and Ultimate Sacrifice of humanity. Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus disintegrate into an angel, pope or any imposter falsely claiming to be the Messiah Yeshua. The authentic, genuine, original, real Jesus is ALIVE AND WELL and coming back physically to earth to rule forever as God ordained Him to be. Jesus never transitioned into any other form of human being as often taught by many people falsely to deceive them to hell. Jesus accurately predicted after His ascension Alive into heaven, there will be many false Christs deceiving people including even chosen, elect, remnant if they are not discerning. Some refuse to submit to God’s plans and purpose for mankind through Jesus Christ so instead create their own version of faith to lure people away from God. Try to convince people Jesus failed God in completing His assignment on earth to bring perfect peace politically so they replace Jesus in doing so. They wanted a political leader to redeem them from exploitation by unjust tyrants who extorted taxes and banned them from worship. Increased agitation and helplessness against their rulers and leaders who exploited them aggravated them to look for a militant conqueror. Disappointed Jesus did not command armies of heaven to eradicate their enemies. Instead, Jesus told them His Kingdom is not of secular world but God’s Kingdom so failed to understand Jesus’ mission on earth. The oppressed wanted immediate relief from their oppressors so looked for new opportunities in militant Leaders. In doing so, they misunderstood that it was God who allowed those imposters as a part of their demands of permissive will against God in the first place. Did not realise as mankind rejected God as Theocratic Leader of all HIS creation so God let them endure those they chose in place of God. God was angered and so allowed humans to control themselves as long as possible to discover the error. God allowed time for people to have the taste of their own medicine as they now prefer man’s rule over God’s Rule. After many generations of suffering and toil, God heard cries of people and sent help through the prophets, priests, ministers, and appointed elders. Although some do listen and obey them, majority refused to accept Godly instructions. Finally God sent HIS OWN SON JESUS, God’s Heir to throne of David to touch their hearts to repent to accept God’s Rule again. Sadly, many did not take keen interest in Jesus as God intends. After many generations of human leaders, lack of knowledge of God as Direct ruler of mankind seems a strange concept to them. God decided to give freedom of choice to mankind to be the master of their own destiny against HIS WILL. Therefore God gave mankind ‘permission’ to convince themselves that they are better without God’s input. As the years passed, it became clearer that mankind desperately needs God’s help even more than ever before. So God in HIS WISDOM and Compassionate Mercy extends beyond measure LOVE to all HIS faithful, loyal Children, crying to God day and night, interceding to God to redeem world from reckless pain and needless suffering. However, there is a problem as an absolute power corrupts absolutely, humans have tasted power and enjoyed the pecks and privileges of power refuse to renounce the powerful positions to God to take HIS RIGHTFUL PLACE of authority over mankind. This is the ultimate source of all conflict on earth. In the process some religious leaders vying for total control of world exclusively, want to prove they are the real McCoy chosen by God among the others competing for the same position. This is why they try to trace their power to Jesus to try to convince people they are the ‘real Messiah Yeshua’ to rule. So reinforce teaching messages to fool people into thinking they are to rule mankind in place of Jesus. The problem is Jesus is Alive and well in heaven and Coming back soon to earth to Rule. Many other ‘Jesuses’ exist today in order to justify themselves as the new ‘Jesus,’ so try to ‘eliminate’ True Authentic Jesus by telling people that Yeshua Messiah is transformed or reborn as that leader. A closer look shows contradictions and an inability to convince from Bible ideas in line with Testimony of the Word of God. Nowhere in the Bible does God say Jesus will be replaced by another Saviour to come after Jesus Christ. Jesus is Ultimate Sacrifice in heaven waiting on God’s Command to come to earth in Rapture in clouds to save to rescue God’s chosen, faithful and loyal remnants awaiting His Coming soon. Jesus WILL Return physically to set up Eternal Kingdom on earth from Israel. In the meantime, God is giving people the chance to repent, to accept and believe in Jesus to join God’s Kingdom before it is too late. After the Rapture, world descends into chaos of evil unseen before culminating in battle of Armageddon says Psalm 83. So God takes by force, God’s Rightful Rule over mankind forever and ever and God’s Kingdom has no end. Those who refuse to submit to God’s Rule sadly will face God’s judgements and punishments in hell fire. This world is changing fast in line with the word of God in the Bible from Genesis to Revelations prophecies are happening daily in the news. Study the Bible yourself like the Bereans and know the truth for yourself. The Truth you know sets you free in Jesus Name so if leader knows exposed and denounced by genuine truth of God will do not let you discover truth for you to abandon them. So tell you to listen exclusively to them only not to read any other sources of information including the Bible. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light so changes the brainwashed, transformed and renewed to be saved. As the source of income, some cults manipulate them making it difficult and impossible to leave without threats if convinced by Godly Bible Truth. Take note nobody can save you except Jesus Christ. World events are part of bigger picture unfolding and end time reality happenings everyday. Prepare and make informed choice for your own good in Jesus Name. Be reassured the same Jesus alive in heaven EXACTLY is SAME JESUS COMING AGAIN to earth soon even right at the door. Jesus said many people use His name to perform miracle wonders. God is powerful and HIS Words are sharper than two-edged sword working miracle but if motive is wrong God rejects them. Paul said he did not want to lead others to Christ and perish himself so ran the race to win the prize like all other believers. God highly exalted Jesus above all names so at the mention of Name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord to the Glory of LORD God Yahweh. The angels told the disciples on Mount Olives, Jesus they saw going into heaven is SAME JESUS CHRIST COMING back to earth on Mount Olives.. So Jesus did not, decay, decompose, degenerate, dematerialized, deteriorate, disintegrate, dissolve, fragment, go to pieces, granulate, grinded, interred in God’s memory, melt, molder, perish, powdered, pulverize, putrefy, triturate, tumble into another human being or turned into Archangel Michael. At the sound of trumpets by archangels, Jesus WILL appear with heavenly host brightly for all eyes to see Jesus’ Second Coming to earth. Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death but GIFT of God is ETERNAL Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus conquered death permanently by GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE. John 3:16 says, God so LOVED the world HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS, WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN JESUS WILL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. Jesus did not resurrect as the woman of the Church of Almighty God cult started in 1990s claims Jesus was resurrected as a woman in China. Chinese authorities frequently crack down on cult members over the years, confiscated computers and books used by cult for recruitment. The Church of Almighty God refused to give a direct response to BBC but refers to its US-based website which contains multiple alleged testimonies of believers tortured by Chinese authorities. So cult’s core belief is Jesus returned to earth as a Chinese woman to wreak apocalypse. The person who claims direct contact with God as founder is former physics teacher, Zhao Weishan, who founded cult 25 years ago and fled to the United States. Jesus is not resurrected into any other person. A born again believer in God does not perish because Spirit lives on but body interred, if well-preserved intact or decays to dust but reawaken at trumpet call. God has enough creation material to make all of mankind, angels, creatures, the earth, sky and firmament. So God does not recycle human life into new beings because of shortage of ingredients. God does not turn dead into another one so makes zillions of each individual since creation and continues to do so. People are unique, one of a kind, God made to display the wonders of God’s MAJESTY. So the Real Jesus is seated at Right Hand of God on Throne in heaven and is Alive forevermore. Paul warns in latter times some will fall away from true faith by paying attention to follow misleading counterfeit teaching of demons says 1 Timothy 4:1. The doctrine of eternal life in Christ means the Spirit of God in man never dies so returns to God after death to join the saints singing before God’s Throne in heaven. Those in Christ alive on earth join Jesus in Rapture teaching supported by Bible. Jesus said: “You will know the truth and the truth sets you free in John 8:32. All who prefer to be asleep, God allows to remain asleep till after 1000 year Reign of Jesus on earth. So gain accurate knowledge of God’s Bible truth and correct teaching of God’s Kingdom principles and practices for growth promotion by faith in Christ in God. Matthew 25:31 says Jesus RETURNS with thousands of angels accompanying Jesus to earth physically a Divine being. At Second Coming, Christ will descend to Mount Olives in Jerusalem to Reign 1000 years. After ascension He prepares place for you so will come again and in Rapture receive you to be with Jesus in heaven with God. So Acts 1:11 said to the disciples, you men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into Heaven, This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, WILL come back in the same way you saw him ascend to heaven. So they returned to Jerusalem from Mount of Olives in Israel. Jesus has not turned into anyone else so is coming back to earth soon and all eyes will see Jesus Yeshua Messiah on His Return.
NASA is warning of arrival to earth of asteroids and meteorites and objects from space heading towards earth causing massive explosions. This warning agrees with the Bible prediction that earth will be hit by a huge comet, asteroid, shooting stars that can collide with things in its path. The debris from the huge hole in the sun upsets solar system of space. This affects established alignments of space causing waves, earthquakes on earth. The impact of those asteroids and comets will form huge craters to affect and destroy some parts of earth. These cause fires and damages forests and whole neighbourhoods. Be aware these are endtime warnings of Armageddon strategy of God. The enemy forces against God will be overcome by God’s weapons of mass destructions to wipe out evil as HE did in the Bible. Do not bury your head in the sand and refuse to protect yourself from these dangers happening. The most important thing to do is prepare emergency kit in advance for survival in safe shelters. In Istanbul, hailstones large as golfballs sweep Istanbul with damage to vehicles, cars, buildings from sudden weather changes. Rain, hail and high winds in Turkish city lead to floods and collapsed wall at cemetery, explosion at port. A plane nose hit by hailstones shattered windshields of plane causing forced emergency landing. Associated Press in Istanbul on Thursday 27 July 2017 20.32 reported events happening. The severe summer storm in Istanbul left at least three people injured, with heavy rain, hail, strong winds knocking down trees and stone wall and flooding streets in Turkish city. NTV television channel said a part of stone wall surrounding a cemetery for the Christian Armenian community demolished in Thursday’s storm hurting two people. Rescue crews and residents help each other to remove the stones, looking for people who may have been trapped beneath the rubble. Winds also toppled a large crane that landed on oil barrels at a port, causing an explosion and fire, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported. One person was injured in fire, later brought under control. A small depot caught fire after being hit by lightning. Heavy rainfall disrupted the evening rush hour traffic, stranding vehicles in flooded streets. Delays were reported at Istanbul’s main airport and some planes were diverted to other airports.

Terrifying! Scottish Highlands shaken by biggest earthquake for 30 years.
- The magnitude 3.8 tremor was recorded at around 3.45pm yesterday
- The British Geological Society confirmed the size of the quake in the Moidart area
- It was the biggest earthquake to hit the area since September 1986
- One Twitter user described it as ‘terrifying’ and said the ground below them was ‘exploding’
The Scottish Highlands experienced the largest earthquake in three decades yesterday, experts have confirmed. The British Geological Survey (BGS) recorded the magnitude 3.8 tremor in the Moidart area just before 3.45pm. It was the biggest earthquake in the region since a magnitude 4.1 quake near Oban in September 1986, officials noted.
The impact on these of objects on reaching earth cause ripple effects as in the recent case the BGS stated: earthquake was felt widely across the west of Scotland.’ People in the area shared their experience of the rumble on Twitter. One wrote: ‘Think I just experienced a minor £earthquake, here on Ardnamurchan. West coast Scotland. Anyone else feel it, my kitchen rumbled.’ Another said: ‘Just experienced 2 earthquake tremors here in Scotland. ‘Never felt anything like that, like the ground beneath us was exploding. Terrifying!’ SNP MP Margaret Ferrier also commented on the tremor, saying: ‘Largest earthquake in the region since 1986.’ In recent years, there was a magnitude 3.5 earthquake in Glenuig in January 2011. Scotland’s largest earthquake was a magnitude 5.2 event in Argyll in 1880, BGS said.
Asteroids are rocky bodies left over from the formation of our solar system some 4.5bn years ago. There are thought to be millions of them, most of them in a “belt” between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. A space rock slightly bigger than TC4, at 40m, caused the largest Earth impact in recent history when it exploded over Tunguska, Siberia, in 1908. In 2013 a meteoroid of about 20m exploded in the atmosphere over the city of Chelyabinsk in central Russia with kinetic energy of about 30 Hiroshima atom bombs. The resulting shockwave blew out the windows of nearly 5,000 buildings and injured more than 1,200 people. It caught everyone unawares. If an object the size of TC4 were to enter Earth’s atmosphere “it would have a similar effect to the Chelyabinsk event” said the ESA. Meteroids are soon expected to be seen in October over the skies frequently and even spotted by the naked eye.
One such object called 2012 TC4 which will pass earth us at a comfortable distance of about 4,200 miles (6,800 kilometers) at its absolute closest. This asteroid is small only about 30 to 100 feet (roughly nine to 30 meters) across creates a chance for NASA Planetary Defence Coordination Office to test out its techniques. This means NASA is preparing in time for the endtime prophecies of objects towards earth in Bible. This sort of testing is standard procedure practice for near-earth objects that get too close for comfort. Emergency survival kits are essential in case of electrical interruptions, flash floods, tornadoes, typhoons, fires among other ripple effects on earth. Be assured of salvation in God in Christ. These things will happen as God warns before Jesus returns to earth to rule. Israel is God’s Time Clock revealing the signs of the times. The current conflicts over Mount Zion is to restore to Yahweh THE ONLY ONE HOLIEST SITE OF ALL THE HOLIEST PLACES GOD CHOSE FOR HIS WORSHIP out of all places on earth. God will take by force HIS PROPERTY AS THE PATENT RIGHTFUL CREATOR AND OWNER LEGALLY by HIS Supernatural events. No power or person on earth can stop God’s plans and purpose. God is Coming back to live on perfect earth after parts of old earth is destroyed. All evil is wiped out by God to replenish and reconstruct earth. Due to injustice, wickedness God intervenes directly to restore new earth and bring new heaven to earth to Jerusalem in Israel permanently. Although 1 Kings 8:27 says God is in heaven, not dwelling on earth, because heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain God, yet God comes down to meet high priests in the Holy of Holies in HIS House built for Worship! When sin is eradicated completely earth becomes perfectly pure like Heaven and God will come and Dwell among HIS people on earth forever. These events are recorded according to the Bible so real ongoing transformation is taking place due to transgressions. The Good News is, it is never too late to repent to belong to God and be saved no matter what is happening on earth. Physical rocks like asteroids, meteorites, solid debris from space hits earth. But in God’s scheme of things in the Book of Daniel, Jesus is the uncut Rock whose Godly Kingdom shatters all kingdoms and God’s Kingdom has no end because Jesus Rules Forever. Daniel’s 70 years sealed prophecy concerning the end times and Jesus’ Reign continues to be fulfilled in the Bible as Jesus confirmed thousands of years ago. Jesus’ endtime signs include thunder storms, hailstones and flush floods. Be alert at all times and prepare emergency survival kit.
2017 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. Old 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. Like 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.
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.
Under 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.
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
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.
