Israel 365: Over 100,000 Arabs filled the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, on Tuesday” for their holiday of Eid al Adha. Thousands more filled the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron while both sites were closed to Jews. Despite the supposed religious significance of the gathering, large banners displaying slogans for the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Hamas, were on display.
Pray for the well-being of Yerushalayim; “May those who love you be at peace” Psalms 122:6 (The Israel BibleTM)
Maor Tzemach, chairman of the Lach Yerushalayim organization denounced the display: “Freedom of worship is not freedom of incitement and terrorism,” Tzemach posted on Facebook. “The Israeli government that allows the freedom of incitement in the Temple Mount must fight the terrorists that are taking over the Temple Mount before blood is spilled in the streets of Jerusalem!”
Many in the crowd reportedly chanted, “We shall sacrifice our lives for Al-Aqsa.” Read More
Opinion: The crowd is correct.
“The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
And the house of Joseph a flame;
But the house of Esau shall be stubble;
They shall kindle them and devour them,
And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau,”
For the Lord has spoken.” Obadiah 1:18
The descendants of Esau were forced out of Mt. Seir in approx. 600-590 BC and made their way east to settle in southern Judea as the Jews were being carried off to Babylon. In 586 BC the Babylonian army entered Jerusalem, ransacked the city and destroyed the soul of Judaism, Solomon’s temple. The sons of Esau helped, and God was not pleased.
“But you should not have gazed on the day of your brother
In the day of his captivity;
Nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah
In the day of their destruction;
Nor should you have spoken proudly
In the day of distress.
You should not have entered the gate of My people
In the day of their calamity.
Indeed, you should not have gazed on their affliction
In the day of their calamity,
Nor laid hands on their substance
In the day of their calamity.
14 You should not have stood at the crossroads
To cut off those among them who escaped;
Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained in their day of distress.”
There were so many Edomites in southern Judea at the time of Jesus that the Greeks and Romans called it Idumea and was mentioned on Mark 3:8. The harsh treatment of the Pharisees in Matthew 23 by Jesus and the one who betrayed Him, were mostly from southern Judea giving us clues as to their ancestry, and Malachi 1:4 prophesied they would return in the last days to try to take the land.
“Even though Edom has said,
“We have been impoverished,
But we will return and build the desolate places”.
God’s displeasure is clear …
“They may build, but I will throw down;
They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness,
And the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever.”
