I posted a story about the rumor that construction on the Third Temple of Jerusalem was to begin on today, March 16.
Unfortunately, it was just a rumor.
A colleague of mine just returned from the Holy Land (for the 23rd time) and said that while all the temple tools are ready and warehoused, construction hasn't begun because the Jews look upon the area as defiled because of the Islamic structures in place.
Yet, isn't it interesting how, Israel, so small and insignificant, remains in the news all the time?
I heard just yesterday that the relationship strain between the US and Israel is at all time high, that is, most strained, now, because of Obama's insistence of no more building and Israel's insistence to build.
I'm not going to get into that, because, well, I don't want to. However, I think there is something to the fact that when we bless Israel, we are blessed and when we curse Israel, we will be cursed.
I personally don't like the path that our president is taking us. I personally feel as if he has no regard for Israel. If we don't take up for them, there won't be anyone who will.
Of course, this may all be a part of God's master plan; I don't claim to be privy to that!
Nevertheless, pray for Israel, that they would recognize Jesus as the Messiah!
