There is breaking news out of Jerusalem that descendants of Moses’ brother Aaron, called Kohanim, have just conducted a Passover sacrifice at the foot of the Temple Mount, just yards from where the Jewish Temple once stood. The sacrifice is a groundbreaking moment in modern Israeli history and likely the first time since 68 AD that a Passover sacrifice was conducted in such close proximity to the Temple Mount.
Religious Jews have been increasingly eager to build the Third Temple and restart sacrifices, but have been prevented from performing sacrifices in the area in years past by Israeli police and Palestinians. In 2015 a sacrifice was conducted in West Jerusalem, then in 2016 an even closer sacrifice was carried out on the Mount of Olives. Last year a sacrifice was conducted closer still, just 400 meters from the Temple Mount, but today’s Passover slaughter of a lamb was just one step short of actually occurring where the Temple itself once stood.
Major Israeli religious leaders were in attendance, including MK Yehuda Glick who has tirelessly worked to promote the building of the Third Temple. Of nearly equal historical significance is the fact that Israeli police did nothing to prevent the ritual. Jews are closer than ever to repossessing the Temple grounds.
At the same time, Palestinians are planning a mass march on Israel in the lead up to Israel’s 70th anniversary and the U.S. embassy handover from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Some 100,000 Gazans will attempt to storm the Israeli border.
Of even more significance, the Knesset is closing in on the first of three votes to pass the Jewish State bill, which if passed will no doubt make 2018 as prophetically significant as 1948 and 1967. We all need to watch this very, very closely because the next six to eight weeks may be the most important period of time many of us have witnessed in our lifetimes.
Across the border, in Syria, Russian generals continue to warn that a major U.S. fleet buildup in the Western Mediterranean is a prelude to a massive attack on Assad’s government in Damascus.
The age of the Gentiles is coming to an end and the Time of Jacob’s Trouble is close at hand when God will finally bring Israel to repentance and national recognition that Yeshua is LORD. (Click to Source)
