Israel 365: Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz) has always been an outspoken advocate for Israel but he recently went even further when criticizing the recent UN resolutions concerning Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. In his response, Gosar called on the UN to dismantle the Muslim structures in Jerusalem that were built on the ruins of the Jewish Temple.
UN ANTI-ISRAEL RESOLUTION
At the beginning of the month, during the holiday of Hanukkah, the United Nations General Assembly approved the Jerusalem Resolution that referred to Israel as “the occupying power”, disavowing Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and called it solely by its Muslim-Arabic name of al-Haram al-Sharif.
“Thus said Hashem: The heaven is My throne And the earth is My footstool: Where could you build a house for Me, What place could serve as My abode? Isaiah 66:1 (The Israel BibleTM)
Opinion: The political ignorance of the anti-Israel crowd and those completely uninformed as to the Biblical aspects of God’s plan for Israel, sadly make up a growing percentage of the US Congress. Paul Gosar, however, is an exception:
“The recent vote by the United Nations disavowing Jewish historical ties and exclusivity to the Temple Mount—the holiest and most sacred Temple in Judaism—is an outrageous act of religious persecution”
“This is a transparent effort, supported by 129 nations but opposed by the United States, to rewrite history, cleanse the holy area of its religious ties to the Jewish faith and deny that Israel has roots to the Middle East.”
Correct on both accounts, but the Senator from Arizona was not finished:
“It remains an abomination that a mosque was allowed to be built over this temple. The United Nations should be finding ways to dismantle and move that mosque, which is an affront to all religions,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
Paul Gosar is a Roman Catholic, critical of Pope Francis on several matters:
“I’m a proud Catholic Christian. I objected to the Pope’s cultural Marxism years ago as inconsistent with Christianity and his obsession with leftist politics. I want bible-based theology from the Pope, not trendy socialist tripe. I am no longer alone.”
And Bible-based theology it will be:
“They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
The passage is from Psalm 83:4, written by a temple priest over 3000 years ago. The passage goes on to name each member of an Arab alliance that will attack Israel in the last days.
The passage is critical to understanding the next war that will follow, because in the Gog Magog attack, Ezekiel 38:8 prophecies Israel will be living in a false peace after recovering from war:
“After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety.”
It is inconceivable how Israel could ever be living “safely” with the likes of the Palestinian Authority (Edom Ps. 83:6), or Hamas (Philistia Ps. 83:7), or (Amalek Ps. 83:7), or the inhabitants of Tyre (Hezbollah Ps. 83:7), breathing down their backs.
Once that crowd is eliminated, a prince of Russia will devise an evil plan:
“Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.” Ezekiel 38:10-12
