The Temple Mount Faithful Will Go Up to the Temple Mount on Tisha B'Av
The Faithful Petition the Supreme Court to Allow Them To Take the Cornerstone With Them On This Day.
On Tisha b'Av (29th July 2001), the day which commemorates the destruction of both temples, 2587 years since the destruction of the First Temple in 586BCE and 1931 years since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70CE, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will go up to the Temple Mount. They will go up not only to mourn the destruction of both temples but, even more then this, to start the building of end-time Third Temple. This is the reason that the Faithful want to take the cornerstone with them and to bring a new prophetic end-time call to the people of Israel and all the world that it is time to rebuild the temple as the G-d of Israel expects of us and to bring the mourning of so many years to an end when the temple is rebuilt. This will be the end of the time of the destruction of the temple, Jerusalem and the land and people of Israel. It will also be the beginning of the time of G-d's judgment on all the enemies of Israel who for thousands of years and again in our time are trying to continue the destruction and to again destroy the great dream and desire of the G-d and people of Israel to rebuild the house of G-d on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and to destroy G-d's prophetic end-time recreation of the people and land of Israel and their eternal capital, Jerusalem.
We know that real peace will come in Israel and all over the world when this great dream is realized. As long as the house of G-d remains in ruins and is desecrated by foreigners who continue to destroy the remains of the First and second Temples their can never be peace in Israel or in all the world. Until that time the Temple Mount will continue to be like a volcano because of the anger and sadness of G-d that His house is left in such terrible shame while each one of us looks after his own house and does not care about the house of our Beloved G-d Who commanded Israel "And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them." (Exodus25:8) When G-d told us that He would dwell among them He meant that He would dwell in His house in the midst of His people, Israel. Even more than this, through His dwelling in His house on the Temple Mount in the midst of Israel He would dwell in all their hearts. The Third Temple that we so want to build and to which purpose we dedicated our lives to make it a reality in our lives as G-d expects from us, will be a house of prayer for all nations and through the eternal Third Temple G-d will dwell in the midst of all the nations and in the hearts of all men.
(Isaiah2:1-5;56:6-8) As G-d taught us through His prophets, a real peace and love between people and nations will only come when the temple is rebuilt and the eyes and hearts of all mankind will be lifted to Jerusalem, to the house of G-d. "And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for from Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more." (Isaiah2:2-4)
We are living in the times of which Isaiah prophesied and it is the biggest failure and sin of our time that Israel, with the encouragement, backing and support of all mankind is not immediately rebuilding the temple. Everyone is involved in his own materialistic gain and in the building of his own house and not of the house of G-d . the Temple Mount Faithful Movement decided to change this evil materialistic situation, to undertake the godly revolution and to bring G-d's expectations to an immediate reality.
We are listening to His word through the prophet Haggai who brought the Word of G-d and His anger with regard to this. "Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say that the time has not yet come, the time that the Lord's house should be built. Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying, ... Thus says the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, says the Lord. You looked for much, and, behold, it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why? says the Lord of hosts. Because of my house that lies in ruins, and everyone of you runs to his own house. Therefore the heaven above you have withheld the dew, and the earth has withheld its produce. And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the grain, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground brings forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labor of the hands." (Haggai1:2,3,7-11) As we see here, the Word of G-d to Israel is very clear. it is also no wonder that this year Israel has not had sufficient rain and has no peace. It is so clear that the rebuilding of the temple will not only open the door for the coming of Mashiach ben David to Israel and all the world but will bring about a godly blessed and peaceful revolution in Israel and all the universe and the mourning will become a time of joy and happiness. It is so clear and this Word of G-d is written again and again in the Tanach that we do not understand how people do not pay attention to it at this time. The G-d of Israel told us so clearly that "Thus says the Lord of hosts: Let your hands be strong, you who hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, who spoke on the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid, saying that the temple might be built. For before these days there was no wage for man, nor any wage for beast; nor was there any peace to him who went out or who came in, because of the adversary; for I set all men everyone against his neighbor. But now I will not be to the remnant of this people as in the former days, says the Lord of hosts. For there shall be the seed of peace; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her produce, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And it shall come to pass, that as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, but let your hands be strong. For thus says the Lord of hosts: As I intended to do evil to you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, says the Lord of hosts, and I did not relent; ... Thus says the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall become times of joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts to the house of Judah; therefore love truth and peace." (Zechariah8:9-14,19)
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement decided to listen, to obey, and to fulfill these Words of G-d and the event that this Movement will hold on Tisha B'Av will be another important step towards this goal after many other steps in the past. This will not be the last step in this godly process, but an important one. When we state that we want to take the cornerstone with us the meaning is that we want to start this godly process and to complete it soon in the lifetime of our generation. This will be a cornerstone as well for this godly revolution which will come to pass whether we want it or not. It is better if we want it and, more than this, we desire it and are so eager to see the greatest house of G-d built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and He in His glory dwelling in our midst.
As we know, since the enemy of Israel and the terrorist bands of the PLO started their violence against Israel after Ariel Sharon, the present of Prime Minister of Israel went up to the Temple Mount to demonstrate the sovereignty of Israel over the Temple Mount in the midst of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount has remained closed. When Sharon was elected he promised to open the Temple Mount to Israelis, Jews and other non-Moslems. It is unfortunate for him that since this promise, he has still not opened the Temple Mount because of fear of the reaction of the Arab, their friends all over the world and the UN. Ariel Sharon has not passed the godly test Who taught all Israel not to fear anyone when they do what G-d expects them to do on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and all over the land of Israel. Ariel Sharon is making a terrible mistake when he listens with fear to what the enemies of Israel and even all the nations tell him what to do and what not to do. He should learn from the former Prime Minister, Ehud Barak, who made the same mistake and the G-d of Israel dismissed him from office and sent him home. This will be the message that the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will carry on Tisha b'Av to Ariel Sharon.
The Temple Mount Faithful Movement submitted a petition to the Supreme Court of Israel today which will be discussed this week. in the petition we ask the Supreme Court to open the Temple Mount and to allow the Faithful to enter the holy hill of the G-d of Israel on Tisha b'Av and to prevent the Arab enemies on the Temple Mount of causing a riot if the Temple Mount is opened to us or to anyone else. Also the petition asks that we be allowed to take the cornerstone with us and to hold the ceremony of anointing it. We also state very clearly in the petition that we do not merely want to be allowed to pray and demonstrate at the western gate to the Temple Mount as on previous events but to have full access to the Temple Mount with full freedom of worship there and demonstrating our inspiration and motivation to rebuild the temple. In the petition, Ariel Sharon is called on to immediately open the Temple Mount and to allow the Faithful to do what they intend to do on the Temple Mount on Tisha b'Av.
We write that the continuing Arab violence and desecration of the Temple Mount and the giving in to them by the government of Israel is an evil against G-d and His Word, against the Israeli Law and gives a prize for violence to the enemies who want to cancel any Jewish identity and ownership on the holy hill of the G-d of Israel. The situation on the Temple Mount and the closing of the gates is an activity against the existence of Israel as a Jewish state of the G-d of Israel and that this closure of the Temple Mount to the people of G-d over such a long period can no longer continue. In the petition we ask that the Israel Government be ordered to immediately open the gates to us on Tisha b'Av and to allow us to carry the cornerstone for the Third Temple with us. We know that everything for which we struggle will be decided by the highest court of justice, the supreme court of G-d , Himself.
We know very clearly that He leads us to do what we have decided to do years ago and that only He and His highest court controls the destiny of the land and people of Israel but that He expects us to do what He and we so desire to do - to rebuild His house and to again make Israel a biblical nation with a biblical mission. He expects Israel to show Him that they want this of their own free will and not because G-d is forcing them to do it. He expects Israel to love Him, to fulfill His expectations and to obey Him because they feel in their hearts that they have a deep desire to do so. Then He will create the circumstances which will allow them to fulfill this holy cause. Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi, who lived in the exile in the 13th Century in Spain and then made Aliya to Israel and lived in Jerusalem and was one of the most important Jewish figures in the exile, wrote in his book, HaKusari, that the temple will only be rebuilt if the people of Israel have the deepest desire and longing to rebuild the temple. This godly message is so correct and The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement has this deepest desire and longing to rebuild the temple, the house of G-d in Jerusalem and to make it a reality in our lifetime. We know that this with this desire and longing it will e done exactly as G-d taught us and expects of us.
We call on everyone in Israel and all over the world to have this deep desire and longing in their hearts and to act for this together with us in a practical manner as we do. This is the right godly time for the desire and longing as well as to act and struggle for it practically exactly as G-d said to His people, Israel, during the exodus from Egypt and they answered Him with complete obedience. Na'aseh v'nishmah - We will do and we will hear. Everyone in Israel and all over the world is called on in this critical time of redemption to give their support, to encourage, to participate practically and to pray for this holy end-time campaign of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement. Expect great godly events with Israel and her friends on the Temple Mount, in Jerusalem and in the land of Israel in the near future and be a privileged part of them.
