‘Spiritual Warfare’ at the Heart of Temple Mount Conflict, says Dr. Michael Evans

Dr. Michael Evans, a leading evangelical expert on Israel, believes that “spiritual warfare,” is at the core of the recent Temple Mount conflict.

“This (the Temple Mount) is where Satan said, ‘I will exalt myself above the most high, I will sit on the mount of congregations on the side of the north,’” Evans told CBN News, citing Isaiah 14:13. “That’s the Temple Mount.”

“It’s spiritual warfare, and for believers, it needs to cause us to look up,” he added. “We need to see this as a sign of the time because the birth of Israel, the restoration of the Hebrew language, the reuniting of Jerusalem – all of this is a fulfillment of prophecy, but there’s a war going on… between darkness and light.”

The violence over the Temple Mount began after two Israeli security guards were killed there recently after a terrorist attack.

Israeli security forces then installed metal detectors around the Temple Mount.

But Palestinian leaders criticized that move, saying the Israelis were encroaching on a “Holy Site.” Tensions rose, and in the following riots and protests that erupted, at least three Palestinians were killed, and dozens injured.

Subsequently, Israeli authorities replaced the metal detectors with security cameras. (Click to Site)
