Every month thousands of worshippers take part in the traditional sivuv she'arim, the encircling the outer walls of the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site.

The renewal of the ancient custom began nearly four years ago with a small group, and has since become a very popular event. The marchers express their desire to identify with the Temple Mount by circling the holy site - stopping to pray and sing at each of the gates.

The march takes place at the start of every Jewish month, meeting in the Western Wall plaza toward nightfall and continuing around the outside walls of the Temple Mount. The march is accompanied by prayer and singing and is known as one of the most festive and moving Jerusalem traditions.

Toda raba (thank you very much) to Israel National News and Arutz-7 photojournalist Josh Shamsi for sharing the excitement of the Temple Mount surrounded by Jewish love!

May such a holy encirclement of the Temple Mount every month ascend to the highest Heaven as a pleasant fragrance of holy incense, moving Heaven to open the doors to the Temple Mount that we may make aliyah daily, and especially during the biblical festivals, without hindrance from Nazi-Muslims or Hellenist authorities who must have a change of heart or find themselves swiftly demoted.

May the Gentile occupation of the Temple Mount - the holiest site of Judaism - come to an end, and let the work for the Third Temple begin!

The Third Temple on the Temple Mount: The Press Newspapers

East Toledoan calls his book, Beyond Babylon, God’s final warning

Is David Ben-Ariel sounding the trumpet for God or is he merely a confused Christian?

Either way, he’s a dangerous man in dangerous times, a man who Israel deported in 1996.

Ben-Ariel believes Israel should forcefully take back The Temple Mount from Muslim control. He believes Germany and The Vatican are under Satan’s influence and are conspiring to restore the Holy Roman Empire and destroy the United States and Great Britain. He believes that after Germany imposes its will on the European Union, it will attack the United States with nuclear weapons. Three and half years later, Jesus Christ will come to deliver us from the Satanic beast and He will establish His heaven on Earth.

Fact or fiction?

Prophecy, claims Ben-Ariel, who says he is “just one more trumpet sounding the alarm.” Others include Rev. Gerald Flurry of the Philadelphia Church of God. These men believe Americans and Brits are descendents of the Lost Tribes of Israel, God’s chosen people.

Now living in East Toledo, Ben-Ariel sends his views to the world via two web sites and numerous internet forums. Google his name and you’ll get 4,860 references. David’s been a very busy man. And now he’s written a book called Beyond Babylon: Europe’s Rise and Fall. He calls the book, “God’s final warning before the German blitzkrieg begins.”

Ben-Ariel’s views first landed him in trouble with Israeli authorities in 1996. He says he was arrested in a suspected plot to blow up the Al Aqsa Mosque built on The Temple Mount, the site of the Holy Temple where Jesus Christ taught. Ben-Ariel spent three weeks in an Israeli jail and was released without being charged. He was deported and banned from applying for a Visa until this year.

Ben-Ariel says he was arrested because he was protesting the occupation of the Temple Mount and his beliefs were contrary to the softer position of Israel’s Left. He claims he was misunderstood by authorities and caught up in a “witch hunt” after Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

“I wanted it (the mosque) removed but I’ve always said that’s a government’s responsibility. I’m against abortion too and I want the government to remove all those clinics but it doesn’t mean that I’m inciting, that I’m calling for anyone to go out and blow them up. There’s a big difference. But, in Israel, they didn’t see that difference,” he said.

Ben-Ariel hopes to obtain a Visa this year and move to Israel. He has visited there 11 times since 1980 living at more than 8 different kibbutzim.

So, how does the son from a Baptist/Methodist family adopt such radical beliefs?

David, like many Americans who find their spiritual lives unfulfilled in traditional religion, went searching for something more satisfying. He found his ring of truth in the Worldwide Church of God and the teachings of Herbert Armstrong. Today, he is a member of the Temple Mount Faithful and his mission is to urge the Israeli government to take the site from Muslim control. “I am calling upon the Israeli people to repent and as part of their national repentance to cleanse The Temple Mount of its foreign filth, those foreign mosques that occupy Judean’s most holy site.”

The Palestinians should go too. “Israel should cleanse the land of this filth and their polluted mind set and remove the threat by expelling them. It’s logical. America would never tolerate a particular people saying, `We are going to take your capitol and make it ours.’”

You can see why, in the tinderbox that is the Middle East, Israel officials prefer not to have the incendiary David Ben-Ariel in their country. When the beliefs of a militant Christian meet head on with the beliefs of a militant Muslim, can there be any hope for peace?

In Beyond Babylon, Ben-Ariel presents his interpretation of The Bible and how he arrives at his conclusion that a Vatican-Nazi alliance will lead to our destruction, a destruction that we are hastening because of our idolatry and immorality.

When this Armageddon will occur is not certain, Ben-Ariel writes. However, it will come soon. And, I suppose, the recent earthquakes, melting polar ice caps, Asian tsunami and conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan provide fertile ground for those who believe in conspiracy theories. And, if you think these people aren’t out there just surf the internet and you decide if Ben-Ariel is blowing a trumpet or a kazoo.

Shimon Peres charged with the murder of Yitzhak Rabin!

Shimon Peres charged with the murder of Yitzhak Rabin
by the Justice for Rabin Coalition

April 27, 2006/ 30 Nisan 5766

We, the undersigned, leaders of major Jewish groups and organizations, hereby sorrowfully acknowledge our lack of leadership in pursuit of justice for slain Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

We deeply regret standing idly by the blood of our brother Yitzhak Rabin, especially after the initial shock of his assassination wore off and gaping holes were exposed in the corrupt conclusions of the Shamgar Commission that we refused to believe. However, we are now convinced the Shamgar Commission represents nothing more than the official Israeli government cover-up of the Yitzhak Rabin assassination, orchestrated by the Israeli oligarchy outed by Forbes Israel, who were just following their Euro-Nazi orders, specifically Shimon Peres, as part of their plan to sell out Israel to foreign interests.

We grieve that Mrs. Leah Rabin did not live to hear and witness us echo her call to REOPEN THE RABIN FILE. Her plea fell on deaf ears. We will make sure that our demands cannot be ignored or neglected. We sincerely apologize to the family of Yitzhak Rabin and to the nation of Israel, the Jewish homeland, but trust we can go forward with zeal and determination to right these wrongs, reassured by the words of the Prophet Isaiah: “Zion shall be redeemed with justice.”

In that holy spirit, and in the spirit of Elijah the advocate for Naboth against Ahab and Jezebel,

1) We demand the Israeli government to REOPEN THE RABIN FILE to an independent, international commission as proposed by the highly respectable, Jerusalem-based Root and Branch Association. There are more than enough valid reasons for this, including "new evidence" and recent comments by Atty. Penina Guy, the prosecutor in Yigal Amir's trial in early 1996, who questioned why Amir wasn't killed immediately after he began shooting: “It's still a mystery to me how he managed to shoot three bullets and at the same time even approach Rabin, and, according to the ballistic evidence, actually touch Rabin's jacket for the third bullet..." which the Kempler video proves impossible and Yigal Amir denies.

2) We call upon the Israeli and world media (such as Dateline, 20/20, Nightline) to BROADCAST THE KEMPLER VIDEO and focus on this reopened cold case of Rabin's murder (that refuses to rest until justice is served), in what Israeli political analyst Joel Bainerman predicts will become “the biggest scandal in Israeli history, “and dare to ask the hard questions and address the legitimate concerns that beg their attention (that has too long been denied), including from such “friends” of Yitzhak Rabin as Presidents Clinton and Bush, as well as give long overdue credit to Israeli author Barry Chamish for leading the way in this investigation.

As WorldNetDaily reported, five thoroughly researched books charge the General Security Services of Israel (Shabak) organized Rabin's murder and three of the books contend that Shimon Peres was the mastermind of the assassination.

"All in all," notes Bainerman, "the case against Peres is circumstantial, but the weight of the evidence is impressive enough to start legal proceedings against him."

Let justice be served and the truth be known that Israel may be free to survive and thrive.

For Zion's Sake,

The Justice for Rabin Coalition

An Important Notice:

I'm grieved to report that The Justice for Rabin Coalition, including the sample press release above - "Shimon Peres charged with the murder of Yitzhak Rabin" - unfortunately is not yet a reality, but clearly represents what self-respecting Jewish leaders and organizations would do if they truly loved their fellow Jews and Eretz Yisrael a fraction of what they profess to.

May this "press release" serve as an opportunity for serious soul-searching, for teshuva, or as an indictment against those who fail to act and will be held responsible for the blood of klal Yisrael before the Throne of Heaven. Life and death are set before you. May G-d bless us all to CHOOSE LIFE.

The Temple Institute: Count for Yourselves

Count for Yourselves
Nissan 27, 5766/April 25, 2006
The 12th day of the Omer

"And you will count for yourselves from the morrow after the shabbat, from the day that you brought the omer as a wave-offering; seven complete weeks; including the day following the seventh week you will number fifty days; and you will present a new meal-offering unto HaShem." (Leviticus 23:15)

No sooner have we been delivered from Egypt, with "signs and wonders," with "a strong hand" and "an outstretched arm," then we are commanded to "count for ourselves." Why, in the midst of these many miracles we have witnessed, are we suddenly told to be introspective? Why this call, out of nowhere, as it were, for accountability? What have we done?

We have done nothing. And that, in great part, it why we have been given the mitzva of "counting for ourselves." With profound loving kindness G-d has pulled us out of Egypt. His bright and penetrating light has lifted us from the darkest depths of the forty nine levels of impurity into which we have sunk during our long stay in Egypt. Another moment of spiritual degradation in Egypt, and the Israelite nation would have been lost forever. Time was of the essence. We were instructed to act in haste, not allowing for our bread to leaven, and prepare ourselves for departure. And that light, like a wave, lifted us up and carried us out of Egypt. And just as soon as we emerged unscathed, the light departed. How could it have stayed with us? In our haste we had no time to prepare ourselves to receive the light. To internalize it.

"Take your time. Don't rush." How often do we hear this common expression? For as we know, "haste makes waste." Anyway, "what's your rush? Nobody's going anywhere." The Torah teaches us otherwise: time is literally of the essence. Time is holy. We do have a destination. We are going somewhere. There is a time to make haste, to prepare ourselves quickly. To rush to perform a mitzva. There is a time for introspection. To utilize each holy moment to take stock. To improve ourselves. To make ourselves open to accept G-d's light and fit to hold onto that light.

The day following the first night of Passover, we are commanded to harvest the first of the barley crop, and to offer this Omer in the Holy Temple. Our sages referred to the first barley harvest as being a grain fit for beasts. Feed for our livestock. Forty nine days later, on the eve of Shavuoth, the festival marking the receiving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, we have readied ourselves for the Shavuoth offering of the two loaves of leavened bread, made from the first of the wheat harvest: food truly fit for human beings.

When it comes to taking stock, there are two time related elements: we must make haste to begin the process. To locate where we are today. Now. Making an accounting for ourselves, however, taking the necessary steps toward raising ourselves spiritually, is a gradual and deliberate process. To allow for "the better angels of our nature" (Abraham Lincoln), to rise and inspire us takes time, holy time.

When G-d took us out of Egypt, He did it in a flash. It was all so fast that soon that grand sense of being truly free men that we experience on the Seder night has departed. What's left is the imperative to "count for ourselves," to start taking stock as we better ourselves for our everlasting inheritance of freedom: the receiving of Torah at Mount Sinai.

On this week's Temple Talk, Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss in depth the forty nine days of spiritual growth which tie the Passover festival to Shavuoth, and how these forty nine days impact on our entire year. They also address issues raised by listeners concerning the positive commandment to "revere G-d's Holy Temple" by ascending the Temple Mount. To hear Temple Talk, please click here.

We would like to remind everyone that part II of the online video tour of the Temple Mount can be viewed by clicking here. G-d willing, the full 90 minute tour will soon be available for purchase, in DVD format.

With blessings from Jerusalem,
Yitzchak Reuven

Temple Mount Faithful: The Presence & Blessings of G-d

From Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful:

The Presence and the Blessings of G-d Followed the Faithful Movement on her Pilgrimage and Carrying the “Omer” Offering at the Feast of Pesach to the Temple Mount at the Very Critical End-Time Redemption of Israel. The Campaign for the Rebuilding of the Temple was in the midst of this Exciting Event

The Significance of the Feast of Pesach to the Redemption, the Rebuilding of the Temple and the Return of the Shekinah to the Temple at this G-dly Time

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement again renewed one of the most important commandments of the G–d of Israel to His people Israel and made the Pesach festival pilgrimage to the Temple Mount and carried with them the “Omer” offering to the G–d of Israel. The trumpets were again heard on the holy mountain of G-d exactly as our forefathers did in the biblical times when the Temple existed and the G–d of Israel dwelt in the midst of His people and land on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It was an exciting opening for the same event that will be done as we feel in the near future when the Temple is rebuilt. It was another major stage in the campaign of the Faithful Movement for the rebuilding of the Temple and renewing all the commandments and traditions that are connected to the worship in the Temple.

It was also both an educational event and a message to the people of Israel that they should not wait more but as we are now living in the godly end-times of redemption they should fulfill the end-time expectations of G–d from them and especially the most important of them to rebuild the house of G–d so that He can again dwell in the midst of His people Israel as He requested them to do so in His Word: “And let them make me a Temple; that I may dwell among them” (Exodus 25:8). It was also a message to all the world that G–d expects from them as well to stand behind Israel in her critical campaign and struggle at this end-times to rebuild the kingdom of G–d in the holy land that He gave them in an eternal covenant.

It was also a message to all the nations that they should strengthen and encourage Israel and to stand with the Faithful Movement to build the Third Temple of G–d on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem so that He will dwell among all of them in His end-time Temple and bless all the world from Jerusalem with love and peace exactly as He promised: “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 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. O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the Lord” (Isaiah 2:1-5).

The pilgrimage of the Faithful Movement on the Pesach festival of this year was made at a very critical time in the history of Israel when Israel is surrounded by so many enemies who want to destroy what G–d is doing with Israel at this time of redemption for the favor of all the world as an opening of a godly time of peace for all the nations. We felt that our pilgrimage this year would have a special significance. We knew that the pilgrimage to the hill of G–d will not only protect the land of Israel from her enemies but it would even make them not desire the land which G–d gave only to Israel for a purpose exactly as He promised in His Word: “Thrice in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel. For I will cast out the nations before you, and enlarge your borders; nor shall any man desire your land, when you shall go up to appear before the Lord your God thrice in the year” (Exodus 34: 23 & 24).

This exciting godly event started on Friday 16th Nissan 5766 (April 14, 2006) when we cut the “Omer” (sheaf) of the Firstfruits of the harvest from the fields of Israel. It was so special and holy to again do what our forefathers did in the land of Israel. We could feel and see in our imagination our forefathers walking from all the corners of the land of Israel, families, fathers, mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers, boys and girls carrying the “Omer” on their way to Jerusalem to pilgrimage the house of G–d on the Temple Mount. This was our feeling when we cut the harvest and when we were on our way with it to Jerusalem. It was so exciting to see with our own eyes how end-time prophesy and promises of G–d to His people Israel become a reality in our lifetime. It is such a privilege to live at such a great time and to be a part of it.

In the early 20th century when the Jewish Zionist pioneers returned to the land of Israel from the exile they immediately built “kibbutzim” and villages and immediately started to work the ground of the holy land, to plant trees, herbs and vegetables and to again eat from the blessings of G–d (a land of honey and milk). They were also excited to plant and cut the harvest and to bring it as an offering to the G–d of Israel as their forefathers did but they could not bring it to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which was controlled by foreigners so they brought it symbolically to the settlements that they built with a hope to bring it one day soon to the right place on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and to fulfill the commandment of G–d to them as it appears in His Word to Moses: “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the people of Israel, and say to them, When you come to the land which I give to you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest; And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you; on the next day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. And you shall offer that day when you wave the sheaf a male lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering to the Lord. And the meal offering of it shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord for a sweet savor; and the drink offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. And you shall eat nor bread, nor parched grain, nor green ears, until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings” (Leviticus 23: 9-14).

On the forth day of the Pesach festival 18th Nissan 5766 (April 16, 2006) at 9:30 a.m. the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement marched to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, carrying with them the “Omer” harvest to the Temple Mount. After 1936 years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem G–d of Israel again saw His children, the children of Israel, marching to His holy mountain carrying with them the “Omer” to bring it to Him as an offering. We felt that we marched on the same way where all the biblical figures, King David, the prophets, the other kings of Israel and millions of Israelis marched and it moved our hearts. We felt that we were making, thanks to G–d, by our own hands exciting end-time history. We also brought with us a big model of the Temple and presented it before the thousands of Israelis who came for the Pesach pilgrimage and the priestly blessing which was prayed by hundreds of priests in front of the Western Wall. The priests used to bless the people of Israel in the Temple with the priestly blessing that G–d commanded them to bless the people of Israel each day in the morning and at the festivals. Gershon Salomon, the Chairman of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement called in his word the Israeli government to make the priestly blessing on the Temple Mount as it was in the Temple and to move during all the year the prayers from the Western Wall, that represents exile and destruction and its time is over, to the Temple Mount the right place where G–d called His people Israel to worship Him there. We also carried with us samples of earth from all the areas of Israel and spread it on the holy ground of the Temple Mount to symbolize the uniformity of all the areas of the land of Israel, including those areas which are still under foreign Islamic occupation like Gaza and Transjordan, around the Temple Mount and the G–d of Israel. We trust completely the promises of the G–d of Israel to Abraham and his seed Israel that His covenant with them with regards to the land that He gave them will come to pass: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18).

The Pesach festival is one of the most important and exciting festivals that G–d commanded Israel to celebrate. This festival is concentrated around the G–d of Israel. It is not an accident that He requested Israel to come and to visit Him on His holy mountain to His Temple where He dwells among His people Israel, to be seen by Him and to see Him as He put it. It's not an accident that it is called “pilgrimage”. He wanted His people to walk and to march on their legs all the way on the ground of the land on their way to Jerusalem and to feel the holy touch of the holy land. It was a march step after step from one level to a higher level until they came to the top of His holy mountain and to the climax of this exciting event where they met Him so close to heaven. G-d taught us that the Temple Mount is the gate to heaven and on the Temple Mount heaven and ground touch each other and the gate to heaven is open from where the G–d of Israel, and His Shekinah is coming to the holy of holies to be so close to His people and among them. This gate was open as long as the Temple existed. When the Temple was destroyed this gate was closed, waiting to be opened again when the Third Temple, the end-time Temple, will be built and G–d will again reflect His Word, His Spirit, His morals and His laws to His people Israel and to all the world and the nations because this house of G–d will be a house of prayer and worship for all peoples: “Also the strangers, who join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one who keeps the sabbath and does not profane it, and all who hold fast to my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56: 6&7).

The Pesach festival also symbolizes the deep linkage between G–d and His people Israel and being the children of Israel “the first born son of G–d” as He called them when he sent Moses to pharaoh: “And you shall say to Pharaoh, Thus said the Lord, Israel is my son, my firstborn” (Exodus: 4:22). It also symbolized the great miracles that G–d made in Egypt and in the wilderness for His people Israel and the godly major event when He saved them from slavery to freedom, divided the sea for them, judged the evil Egyptians with the ten plagues and in front of the Sinai Mountain He renewed with Israel His eternal covenant, made them one nation under His kingdom, gave them the Torah (His Word, morals and laws) and brought them to the promised land. This was a godly major revolutionary event which never happened in the history of mankind when G–d appeared in an exciting moment before His people Israel and they could hear the voice of G-d speaking to them from the Sinai Mountain with a great love (G–d continued to speak to His people, to the prophets and the kings of Israel along the history). It is so special that every generation of Israel was called by G–d to see itself like he was in this exciting godly occasion at Sinai.

On Monday the 17th of April the evil terrorists of the “Islamic Jihad” and the “Fatah” that represent the so called “Palestinians” made another terror attack in Tel Aviv and murdered nine Israelis and 50 or more were wounded. It was a painful attack when a suicide terrorist murdered innocent civilian Israelis. He came to murder them only because they are Jews and he did this in the name of their “god”. Which “god” is this who is sending his believers to murder innocent children, men and women and families in his name? This could only be the devil himself.

However, this painful terror attack could not break the spirit of the Israeli people. We feel so strong with the G–d of Israel and we know that it is end-time birth pains of redemption and that we should face and stop the devil and his messengers who are trying to stop and destroy what G–d is doing with His people Israel at this special time as an opening for the redemption of all the world. We are completely committed and strong with G–d to challenge this battle against this evil. G–d taught us that this major godly event of the redemption of His people Israel is irreversible and that behind the door and the pains is soon to appear the completion of the redemption of the people and the land of Israel and all the world, the rebuilding of the Temple and the coming of Maschiach ben David that the G–d of Israel is soon to send to His people and to all the world.

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement is determined to continue her godly historical campaign. We know that everything that G–d sends us to fulfill is soon to come. We felt His presence in the exciting pilgrimage of Pesach and I can say that every Israeli felt the presence of G–d in his spirit, especially at this festival of Pesach. We felt in the air that major and critical events are soon to come. While the leader of Iran, the new Hitler and the Arab Islamic nations with their allies prepare themselves to destroy and to remove Israel from the map of the world we could feel our great G–d of Israel telling to us as in the biblical times: “Do not fear, I am with you and I will fight with you and judge and defeat all your enemies”. “On that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem;... And it shall come to pass on that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem... Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth; on that day the Lord shall be one, and his name one... and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall dwell secure” (Zechariah 12:8 & 9; 14:3,9 & 11).

In his word, in front of the Temple Mount at the Pesach pilgrimage Gershon Salomon called on the people of Israel and its government to trust the G–d of Israel and not to fear all the many enemies who now gather themselves against Israel. He told them that together with G–d they will be the majority and all the enemies the minority. He called His people to continue to build the kingdom of G–d in the holy land that He gave them and to immediately start the purification of the Temple Mount from the enemies and the rebuilding of the Temple of G–d so that He can as He desires so much to dwell again among His people and all the world on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He swore at this holy place faithfulness to the G–d of Israel, His holy Temple Mount, Jerusalem and the land of Israel and that the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will continue with complete dedication and even more intensively her godly campaign that is soon to become fulfilled and completed. He thanked in the name of the G–d and the people of Israel and the Faithful Movement the many dear and wonderful friends of Israel and the Faithful Movement all over the world that stand with the Faithful Movement in such an exciting devotion, faithfulness and dedication and help the Movement to do her holy work.

Amazon reviews by David Ben-Ariel

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, April 27, 2006
Reviewer: David Ben-Ariel - See all my reviews
For the record, I am David Ben-Ariel and am glad to see that the politico-religious subjects addressed within Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall have so "moved" someone to vainly impersonate me and write reviews, including of my own book! How sad.

I have written a few favorable reviews concerning the excellent books by Israeli author Barry Chamish and American author Ryan Mauro, but anybody can clearly see the difference in style, attitude and content between the few I've written and the "others" by a confused person who fears THE TRUTH IS GETTING OUT.

I've reported these desperate infractions to Amazon and trust they shall see to it, but felt it appropriate to mention these facts meanwhile for the general public's sake.

Reasonable folks will acknowledge what I've written is the plain truth and the others will only get frustrated when they fail to subvert (and actually further) what is destined to grow and become a national debate and an international controversy.

Temple Institute: The Highest Light

The Highest Light
Nissan 21, 5766/April 18, 2006

Our sages relate that when Israel was redeemed from the Egyptian exile, G-d mercifully orchestrated our exit from there just in the nick of time – "at the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day" (Ex. 12:41). Israel demonstrated great collective and personal strength and fortitude by steadfastly maintaining a certain level of sanctity throughout the ordeal of both physical and spiritual bondage. But at the same time, the nation had sunk to a low level of spiritual impurity due to the hardships and influences of the Egyptian captivity. Thus we are taught that our ancestors were literally tottering one step away from the brink of a spiritual chaos from which there would have been no return – the "49th level of impurity" – had it not been for G-d's "strong hand and outstretched arm" (Psalms 136:12) which delivered us "on that very day" – on the very day and at the exact moment of Divine redemption.

The mystical teachings state that G-d pulled Israel out of Egypt at the moment with great compassion. The Heavenly illumination of this compassion was completely overwhelming. They were immediately elevated to the highest level, the "49th level of purity"; transmuted by the highest Divine light. Although they had no preparation and were not ready – "they picked up their dough before it became leaven" (Ex. 12:34) – they were catapulted from their low level directly into the presence of the King's radiance, and it was this radiance which bore them out from the realm of evil.

But it had the makings of a spiritual trauma, this moving from the lowest level to the highest, with no stages in between; like going from 0 to 180 mph in seconds flat. The people did not remain long under the influence of this magnificent and undeserved light. The next day it departed from them, and it was necessary for Israel to regain this illumination, slowly, gradually and naturally, one level at a time, in preparation to stand at the foot of Mount Sinai to hear the voice of G-d and receive the Torah, 49 days later on Shavuot, the Festival of Weeks. This is one of the secrets of the Divine commandment that instructs us to count off these seven weeks, numbering 49 days from the second day of Passover leading up to the Shavuot festival (Lev. 23:15): It is not only a concept of counting, but a period of intense spiritual toil and discipline, and great effort, through which we slowly and gradually regain the light that had been given to us gratis on the first night of Passover.

For so it is every year. On the first night of Passover at the seder, we once again bask in that radiant light of redemption. If – hopefully – we grasp the moment properly, then we merit to leave Egypt. In the words of the hagada, "In every generation it is one's duty to see himself as if he personally left Egypt on this night, as it says: 'You shall tell your son on that day, it was because of this that the L-rd did for me when I went out of Egypt'."

But then the light departs (in the words of Robert Frost, "Nothing Gold Can Stay") and we must work hard to regain it, to build ourselves up to the level where we are found deserving to receive the Torah anew.

Tonight, we begin the seventh day of Passover. Our tradition relates that this is a day of great potential, illumination and spiritual portent; indeed, it is at once both the culmination of the Festival of Passover and its inimitable, powerful crescendo. For tonight marks the night, having departed from Egypt one week earlier, when Israel reached the Sea of Reeds. And ultimately, it is the splitting of the sea and Israel's crossing over to the other side, never to look back, which began her role and destiny in the world.

"And the Children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, Egypt was journeying after them, and they were very frightened; the Children of Israel cried out to Hashem." Many are familiar with the teaching of our rabbis that the sea did not split until one man – Nachson, prince of the tribe of Judah, walked into the water and continued walking until it came up to his nostrils. At the moment when he could go no further, G-d made the miracle, and the sea split and remained open the entire night for all the nation to walk through on dry land. We emphasize this teaching because it so clearly serves to indicate how G-d certainly makes miracles, but only when man has done everything in his power. Once one man did everything he could possibly do, no more and no less than wading in until his nostrils, then G-d stepped in. For if we show no commitment to Him, why should He show any to us?

But another source (Midrash Yalkut Shimoni on Ex. 14, 233) indicates that when Israel arrived at the sea, things were not so simple at all…

"At the sea, our fathers were divided into four groups.
One group said, 'let us drown ourselves in the sea.'
Another group said, 'let us return to Egypt.'
Another group said, 'let us wage war against them.'
The last group said, 'let us scream out against them'."

Is it my imagination, or does this description bear uncanny resemblance to Israel today? We stand veritably at the brink of the Sea, at the chasm separating us from the rest of the world, challenged by G-d Himself to rise up and march across towards our only one and true freedom – our destiny to be a "kingdom of priests and a holy nation" (Ex. 19:6) and never look back. For G-d's reaction pertained to none of the above, but rather, simply "Why do you cry to Me? Speak to the Children of Israel and go" (Ex. 14:15). But in the face of pressures from within and without, including those in power who are totally lost and clueless to their Jewish identity and who are willing to forfeit the country's Jewish identity as well, in the face of both murderous Islamic terror – such as that which claimed at least nine lives during this Passover holiday in Tel Aviv – and the diplomatic terror tactics the world wages against us, perhaps we seem to fit this description. Some seem ready to just forget the whole thing, the dream that could have been the State of Israel, and implode in despair, "drowning ourselves in the sea" and making it easier for our enemies by giving up our land and bringing our own borders closer and closer to the sea. Others seem all to ready to "return to Egypt," to accept that our fate is to be dominated by others. These people are ready to enslave themselves, our future, our children's future, to the interests of foreign powers. Some see war as the answer; some maintain that prayer is the only answer.

Passover is almost over. Today I visited the Temple Mount along with hundreds of other Jews, and our joy at being able to make this pilgrimage on the Festival was palpable. But we did not merit bringing the Passover offering this year. I know of one Jew who spent the seder night in a Jerusalem prison for simply showing up at the Temple Mount on Passover eve. And, I know of another who tried to visit the Temple Mount and was warned by a Moslem police officer not to return to Jerusalem. Does this make any sense? How long will our leaders choose to elongate our own exile? How long will we allow our only holy place to be desecrated, and our own Jewish identity to be denied?

Whether or not we are ready, we have already marched out of Egypt. Now we face the sea. But to which group do we want to belong? As we have emphasized before, the Torah expects us to utilize the Divine cycle of time as a vehicle to relive these experiences, not just to commemorate events of a distant, misty past. And this exhortation is not just for a select few: "With our young and our old we shall depart" (Ex. 10:9). It cannot be overstated that the Jewish experience, far from being stuck in the past, is a constant bridge to the future; we are constantly alive in the moment of G-d's eternal now. The question is, can we truly seize the promise of this moment, and rise to our potential. If we can, then we shall finally cross the sea to true freedom, the freedom that will only be attained when we cease to live in denial, and begin to live our lives illuminated by that highest light that G-d gives us.

No new segment of Temple Talk was recorded during this week of Passover. A new show will be recorded, with G-d's help, on Monday April 24th. Last week's show can still be heard here.

The Economist assaults Jerusalem

The last conquest of Jerusalem by the Economist magazine predicts "Israel's plans for Jerusalem will create a large Jewish city but will have harsh consequences for the Palestinians...."

Doesn't the Economist know that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel? Doesn't the Economist know that Israel is the Jewish homeland? Doesn't it stand to reason, then, that the capital of the Jewish homeland should be a large Jewish city? And is the Economist so uninformed they didn't realize that the resident Arabs' standard of living has been raised with the restoration of Jewish rule over the Jews' ancient capital Jerusalem, as well as throughout the Holy Land?

Any "harsh consequences for the Palestinians" are of their own making. It is unbelievable but true that the Israelis didn't evict their sworn enemies from Jerusalem when they liberated Judaism's holiest city during the Six Day War in 1967.

A related Economist article about Jerusalem's holy places - "the heart of holy war" - refers to the "Old City and its holy sites, the stumbling-block of countless peace negotiations, will be put finally out of bounds to all but the couple of hundred thousand Palestinians living in Jerusalem, and the lucky few others who can get visiting permits. Moreover, the wall is just one part of a gradual and complex process of Israeli takeover."

Interesting, and most ironic, that the Economist should use such biblical language to describe Jerusalem as a "stumbling block," when they're falling for the big lie of the "Palestinians" and promoting their divisive agenda to tear the heart of Jerusalem in two, that plays right into the hands of the German-Jesuit EU that has its evil eye upon the Temple Mount.

Zechariah 12:2-3

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it."

Has The Economist foolishly joined with the dark forces drunk on the delusion that Jerusalem should become "an international city," stripped of Israeli sovereignty, aiding and abetting those who plot a gradual and deceitful process of foreign takeover?

Is the Economist so ignorant of both the Bible and history that they fail to recognize Jerusalem and Israel were already taken over by squatters; that those with illegitimate claims to the Promised Land of Israel (not Ishmael) have coveted the Jewish homeland with an insane jealousy, and that the Jews have only just begun the liberation of the Holy Land? (Notwithstanding the valley of the shadow of death Israel has descended into, misled by treacherous leaders who have sold out to foreign interests, paving the way for EU occupation before the process of redemption is fulfilled).

Israel is to be blamed for not immediately expelling their sworn enemies who forfeited any rights they might have had to remain in the land when they engaged in wars of genocide against the Jews. As a harsh consequence of such sinful inaction, such woeful neglect and dereliction of politico-religious duty, every major Arab group and organization within Israel brazenly continues to call for the destruction of Israel; they remain a constant source of friction (Numbers 33:55-56), the prophesied pricks in Israel's side and represent thorny issues that won't simply go away -- but must, with decisive Jewish leadership, be sent away, as former Israeli Parliament Member and rabbi, Meir Kahane, with great foresight and wisdom called for, saying: "They must go!"

Israel, as a result of an ever growing debt of national sin (Dan. 9:11), suffers the curse of wicked leaders like Ariel Sharon and Shimon Peres and now Ehud Olmert with the corrupt Kadima, kapos of compromise, who would rather evict Jews from their homes than drive out Nazi-Muslims! Israel's surrendered "land for peace" and yet the Israelis find themselves with a lot less land and not an inch closer to peace, and they still follow the failed formula, insanely expecting different results, trusting the leopard will somehow change its spots.

The last conquest of Jerusalem is near. Watch for the Vatican and its useful idiots, its puppet politicians and unholy religious leaders, become an international chorus of discontent, demanding the enforcement of UN Resolution 181 as the final solution for Jerusalem.

All of this was foretold. Jerusalem will suffer a brutal betrayal and foreign occupation that carves up the heart of Israel and pollutes the Temple Mount.

Zechariah 14:1-4

1 Behold, the day of the LORD is coming,
And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,

But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the LORD will go forth
And fight against those nations,
As He fights in the day of battle.
4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
Making a very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.

Psalm 118:26

26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!

The good news is that the prophesied Gentile occupation of Jerusalem will only last for 3 1/2 years before help from on High, the Son of Man, is sent to liberate Jerusalem from its last conquest, shaking up the New World Order and leaving it in rubble, establishing in its place the legitimate Kingdom of God-Beings.

Shimon Peres Came to Power Over Rabin's Dead Body

Shimon Peres Came to Power Over Rabin's Dead Body
by David Ben-Ariel

I met Yitzhak Rabin in the Israeli Parliament in 1982 during Hanukkah. I was able to talk with him briefly and mention I was associated with Ambassador College in Pasadena, California.

That was a tactful way of saying I'm a Christian since I knew he personally knew Herbert W. Armstrong and the Worldwide Church of God, including the Plain Truth magazine. Mr. Armstrong had presented him with a gift of Steuben crystal before.

I was a volunteer at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan at the time, in Northern Israel near Haifa. Just so happens Rabin had lived there for over a year in the late '50s.

I initially considered Rabin - born in Jerusalem - a traitor for surrendering too much to sworn Arab enemies who had not changed their goal of genocide, only their tactics; for going against clear security concerns he once expressed. (I was in a cafe in Jerusalem when he was shot in Tel Aviv). I refused to attend his funeral, although I had attended Rabbi Meir Kahane's some years before.

Later I found out Rabin was apparently being pressured by the dark powers that be to continue to go against what he knew was wrong and that he resisted and was therefore MURDERED by them for coming to his senses.

I do not believe Yigal Amir murdered Rabin. ( I've met Avishai Raviv several times at demonstrations - he's the government agent provacateur who goaded Raviv to murder Rabin). Amir is a patsy, the fall-guy, as is thoroughly expounded upon in Who Killed Yitzhak Rabin by Barry Chamish, his first book that broached the subject and clearly indicts the traitor and murderer Shimon Peres (whose Hebrew name appropriately means vulture).

I repeatedly condemn Shimon Peres as a kapo of compromise, a prostitute who serves his German-Jesuit EU masters, a traitor who has sold and is selling out Jews, Jerusalem and Israel and say as much in my book Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall I am on public record against his perfidy and continue to expose him. He was the Bolshevik in charge during my unjust deportation, who was very much aware of an article published in Jerusalem where I mention the EU plans for Jerusalem's occupation.

The Israeli Secret Police (six men interrogated me) had a computer disk with Beyond Babylon on it and said many would read it/examine it during their investigation of me during their wild goose chase. I told them to make sure Peres read it.

New evidence further PROVES Yigal Amir did not kill Yitzhak Rabin. It's past time Israelis demand: REOPEN THE RABIN FILE.

Shmuel HaLevi rebukes The Economist

Shmuel HaLevi of Radio Free Israel responds to the Economist article, "The last conquest of Jerusalem."

Gentleman, I presume,
There are few things that raise honorable persons hackles more than anonymous fabrications passing as information. Productions made with the intent of implanting obviously special interests groups goals into the public minds. Your publication has regretfully yielded as it has fallen also to that level previously only reached by the most unethical press. Your publication has made its entry into that gang of the untrustworthy.
In retrospect, more and more one understands the reasons for the calamitous decline of both the US standings everywhere and the corresponding decay spreading along those that associate with the State Department, Whitehall and other petrodollar financed facilities.
As to Jerusalem...
Jerusalem never was or will be for long a center for any other than our People.
At the risk of being repetitive, the Koran does not include Jerusalem and we will keep it that way, your interests notwithstanding.
In the other hand. The Bible and other Judeo-Christian central documents do so, profusely and clearly. That stands.

About two hours ago I returned from Jerusalem. I am a Levite, direct descendant of the Gershonite family, as my name indicates and today my Nation's ordained Cohanim, Priests, performed again what is known as the Priest's Benediction. An ancestral proceeding.
Having some extra time to look after our Heritage there, we also visited the Temple's underground remains and other relics. That was of course, from before the Roman hordes destroyed the Temple. That was then and this is now.
I am sure you are aware of the facts, and we must deal with another fact and that is that you choose to fabricate new ones fitting the omnipresent British intents for us as a Nation and the rather flimsy State.

The article in your publication, THE LAST CONQUEST OF JERUSALEM, misrepresents the truth and we will not let that pass by unattended.
The British people and those that assume to speak for them must internalize the following.
What was taken from our Nation will be, in one way or another, returned by those that usurped our Land and artifacts.
That includes what the Romans transferred to Rome and that is now in the Vatican and anything else taken by anyone else that assumed as theirs our National Heritage.
And here is the information we recommend you to accept.
The British Empire and its local controlling instruments are forever gone from the region.
All inimical insertions into our Land will be carefully erased. All of them.
We, as opposed to others, intend to do that as humanely as possible, but done will be.
And no, I did not fail to mention that other name by being forgetful. It is just that we do not know what that name represents other than Roman or other European associates ultimate intent to destroy our Nation.
Basically then, Whitehall, the Quay, the Kremlin and State will have to redo their plans. Now.
Should you desire to inform your readers accurately we can provide you real maps or I can refer you to the Bible's description and limits of our Land.
That is all.

Israelites to return to worship at the Temple

Call to return to the Faith once delivered:

2 Chronicles 30:6-12

2 Chronicles 30
1And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh [whose descendants today are the Anglo-Saxons], that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the PASSOVER unto the LORD God of Israel.

2For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the Passover in the second month.

3For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.

4And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.

5So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beersheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the Passover unto the LORD God of Israel at Jerusalem: for they had not done it of a long time in such sort as it was written.

6So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

7And be not ye like your fathers, and like your brethren, which trespassed against the LORD God of their fathers, who therefore gave them up to desolation, as ye see.

8Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were [with your idolatrous traditions and religious lies] , but yield yourselves unto the LORD, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve the LORD your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.

9For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.

10So the posts passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh even unto Zebulun: but they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them.

11Nevertheless divers of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem.

12Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the commandment of the king and of the princes, by the word of the LORD.

Out of Egypt

"And the L-rd brought us forth out of Egypt..."
Deuteronomy 26:8
Nissan 14, 5766/April 12, 2006

As layl haseder, the first night of Passover approaches, we are all busy extricating the last grains of chametz - leavened crumbs - in our possession. But as we bear down on these hapless crumbs, which symbolize our own tendency towards an exaggerated sense of self importance, we must keep one thing in mind: perspective.

For perspective was really what that first pesach - passover - offering in Egypt was about. By bringing a lamb into their homes to be slaughtered and eaten, the children of Israel were communicating a three-way message: to the Egyptians they were saying: "Perspective! This lamb is not a deity. But the Holy One, the Creator of all living things has commanded us to take this lamb and prepare it as an offering unto Him." To themselves they were likewise saying: "Perspective! The Egyptians can neither harm us, nor keep us in perpetual slavery, as long as we cast our lot with G-d, by fulfilling His commandment." And to G-d Himself they were saying: "We are ready to step forth from bondage by cleaving to You. We are ready to accept the yoke of freedom by performing Your word."

Scouring our house for chametz as an act of spring cleaning may be worthy in and of itself, but it falls short of being life-changing or earth-shattering. Searching our souls for the sake of combatting our own false pride and haughtiness may be a noble act of self-improvement. But unless that effort is aimed toward achieving a purpose greater than the sum of our own individual selves, it is little more than vanity. In a world that worships the individual, we must never forget that it was G-d who "brought us forth out of Egypt" in order that we should serve Him. Our efforts at self-improvement, our striving for freedom are all for naught, if we do not see these goals as being attainable only in the service of G-d.

Preparing ourselves, and bringing the passover offering is no less of an imperative today that it was for our forefathers in Egypt. Complacency is no less of a shackle around our soul today than it was in Egypt. Pragmatism today, as then, is no more and no less than a speck of chametz attached to our heart, diverting us, and keeping us from true freedom. Leaving Egypt meant never going back. We indulge our complacency and self-satisfied sense of pragmatism at our own risk. For we are either in Egypt serving others, or outside of Egypt, serving G-d.

The passover offering symbolizes our selfless dedication to Hashem: removing the chametz of our self-importance, and bending our will toward His. G-d brought us forth "with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm; with great terror and with signs and with wonders." (Deuteronomy 26:8) What are we ready to do for Him?

Temple Mount Faithful Passover Demonstration

The Temple Mount Faithful Movement Will March to the Temple Mount to Make a Pesach Pilgrimage to the Temple Mount on the 16th Nissan 5766 (April 16, 2006)

We Shall Bring With Us the Omer Offering and Blow the Silver Trumpets of the Third Temple

On the fourth day of the Pesach festival, 16 Nissan 5766 at 9:30 a.m. the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement will make a Pesach pilgrimage to the Temple Mount and will bring an Omer offering to the Temple Mount to the G–d of Israel. This is an offering of the first wheat from the fields of Israel. The Faithful Members will cut the Omer offering from the fields of Israel exactly as our forefathers did in the time of the First and Second Temples. The Word of G-d to Moses will become real again:

“And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the people of Israel, and say to them, When you come to the land which I give to you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring the Omer (a sheaf) of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest; And he shall wave the Omer before the Lord, to be accepted for you; on the next day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And you shall offer that day when you wave the Omer a male lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering to the Lord. And the meal offering of it shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord for a sweet savor; and the drink offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. And you shall eat nor bread, nor parched grain, nor green ears, until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings” Leviticus 23: 9-14

We are so excited to renew this holy commandment of G–d to His people at a very special time of redemption of the people of Israel. We feel that time is short and the Temple is soon to be rebuilt on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. We hear the call of G–d to Israel at these critical times not to wait more and to rebuild the Temple so that He can dwell again among His people. The Faithful Movement is not waiting longer. We decided to answer this call of G–d and we are making the campaign and the preparations for the end-time Temple of G–d. The pilgrimage and the offering of the Omer by the Faithful Movement on Pesach is an important part of it and fulfillment of G–d’s commandments. We know very clearly that the rebuilding of the Temple and fulfilling the commandment of G–d to make the pilgrimage three times a year on the three major festivals, Pesach, Shavuot and Succoth will finally remove the pressure and the desire of the enemies of Israel and most of the world to take from Israel the land. G–d taught us this very clearly in His Word: “Thrice in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel. For I will cast out the nations before you, and enlarge your borders; nor shall any man desire your land, when you shall go up to appear before the Lord your God thrice in the year” Exodus 34: 23&24

To symbolize the uniformity of the people and the land of Israel around the G–d of Israel on His holy mountain we shall also bring with us samples of earth from all of the areas of Israel especially from Judea, Samaria and Gaza that are now under pressure from the enemies of Israel and all the world to give them away to the so called Palestinians. We will also bring a large model of the Third Temple and carry it to the Temple Mount to show to the people of Israel and to all the world that the building of the Third Temple is no longer a theoretical vision but a practical and actual project to be built soon in our lifetime. We shall swear faithfulness to G–d, His holy mountain and Jerusalem while our faces will be towards the location of the holy of holies: “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy” Psalms 137: 5&6

Again will be heard all over the hill of G–d our prayer of Hallel that were prayed by our forefathers when they made the pilgrimage on the three major festivals to the First and Second Temple. We shall blow the two silver trumpets that we prepared for the Third Temple exactly according to the Word of G–d. These are the Psalms 113-118 that start with the exciting Psalm 113: “Hallelujah! Praise, O you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. From sunrise to sunset the Lord's name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high, Who looks far down to behold the things that are on heaven, and on the earth! He raises up the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap, That he may set him with nobles, with the nobles of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, and makes her a joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!”

After all of this we will march around the walls of the Temple Mount blowing the shofar and praying the Pesach prayers exactly as our forefathers did and Joshua did in Jericho when he wanted the walls of the enemy to fall.

We shall also call to the priests, that will make the priestly blessing in front of the western wall, and to the people of Israel to make their prayers no more in front of the western wall which is outside of the Temple Mount but to walk up to the Temple Mount and to there make the priestly blessing and their prayers on the Temple Mount on the original location of the Temple exactly as our forefathers did and as G–d is now expecting His people to do. We shall tell them that the time of the western wall, the Wailing Wall, that foreigners that occupied the land of Israel and forbid the Jews from walking up to the Temple Mount and worship there and allowed them to do it only in the small narrow place of the western wall outside of the Temple Mount is over. We shall tell them that at this godly time of redemption the western wall that expresses destruction and exile is over and only the prayers that will be done on the Temple Mount will be accepted and answered by the G–d of Israel in these end-times of redemption. We will call the people of Israel to immediately purify the Temple Mount from the pagan foreign enemies of Israel and to immediately start to rebuild the holy Temple of G–d

This will be an exciting event and an important stage and part of the exciting and critical time of the godly redemption that the people of Israel are experiencing in these days. Everyone in Israel and outside of Israel is called to participate in this godly end-time event and to have the privilege to be a part of it. One day exciting pages will be written in the books of history about these end-time events in Israel and parents and grandparents will share with their children and grandchildren how they were a part of them and how exciting end-time godly history was made them.

The Passover Lamb Remembered

Could God's holy days, which portray His plan of salvation, exclude Jesus' sacrifice? How could Jesus' ultimate sacrifice be less than holy? Didn't God have the Israelites smear lamb's blood on their doors to avert death? Didn't that clearly represent Christ's offering for mankind? Yes!

The Passover lamb was to be kept from Nisan 10 until the 14th (Ex. 12:1-6). It was then to be killed on the 14th. It was to be killed in the evening. How do we know for sure which evening is being discussed? Because God the Father set us a PERFECT EXAMPLE!

When did God decree that Jesus could declare "it is finished" and die on the stake? Why at the very same time that THE JEWS were sacrificing their Passover lambs at the Temple! The Jews had always killed the Passover lambs during the final hours of the 14th. It was towards the end of the 14th, not at the beginning of the 14th, that the Passover lambs were killed.

After the lambs were killed they were prepared (which took some time) to be eaten, naturally, that evening - which began the 15th and the FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD. Nothing of the Passover lamb was to be left over until the morning (Ex. 12:8-10).

God decreed that only unleavened bread should be eaten with the Passover lamb, and that only unleavened bread should be found throughout our property for seven days: "neither shall there anything of the flesh, that you sacrificed the FIRST DAY AT EVEN, remain all night until the shall sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun..."(Deut. 16:1-7; Matt. 27:45-46).

Here God clearly shows that He considered the Passover sacrifice, done at "the going down of the sun." as the FIRST DAY of the SEVEN DAYS OF UNLEAVENED BREAD (Mark 14:12). If we're to blindly follow popular Church tradition that kills the Passover lamb at the beginning of the 14th, rather than at the end of the 14th, then we end up with eight days of unleavened bread! Does it make sense that the lamb must be eaten with unleavened bread and then somehow afterwards for a whole day you can eat leaven again?! How preposterous! At least a child could figure this out. And that's what we all need to become again, like humble little children, hungry for God's truth, eager to please our Father and let His will be done, and commandments kept, rather than attempting to defend vain traditions (Mark 7:7).

God's Word shows that from the end of the 14th (the beginning of the 15th) until the 21st day of the first sacred month is seven days (Ex. 12:18).

The Passover lamb is killed at the end or afternoon (between the two evenings in Hebrew) of the 14th and eaten at the beginning of the 15th with unleavened bread: "For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast...with unleavened bread of sincerity and truth"(1 Cor. 7-8). Christ is our PASSOVER - not our "Lord's Supper." Jesus' last supper with His disciples offered Him the perfect opportunity to replace the traditional lamb with a bread and wine ceremony symbolic of His offered body and blood. (Even the rabbis decreed after the Temple's destruction that it was permissible to not eat a Passover lamb).

As we partake of these holy emblems, what are we remembering? Are we commemorating the night of Jesus' betrayal or are we commemorating Jesus' DEATH? We're to eat the BREAD in remembrance of Jesus' body that was sacrificed at the end of the 14th and we're to drink the WINE in remembrance of Jesus' shed blood on our behalf at the end of the 14th (1 Cor. 11:23-26). [And Jesus clearly associated His hour of trial and crucifixion with wine, not grape juice. See John 2:3-4].

We're to remember Jesus' sacrifice as our very personal Passover Lamb - the Lamb of God! Passover - with the bread and the wine substituted for the lamb - is the annual holy day, observed at meal time on the evening of the 15th, that commemorates Jesus' sacrifice.

The Passover is both a memorial and a feast (Ex. 12:14). The PASSOVER MEMORIAL is the FIRST of the seven days of unleavened bread (not eight), and the FIRST of God's seven holy days that portray His plan of salvation for all mankind.

It's important to note and get this straight with the first of God's festivals and new year: How would God's Church know when to celebrate God's holy days or even what they are if it weren't for the Jews? God has made the Jews His custodian and has committed His truths into their care, specifically the Pharisees (Matt. 23:2; Rom. 3:2-3; 9:4).

God's holy days are faithfully proclaimed from Moses' Seat each year "in their seasons" (Lev. 23:4) by His Jewish stewards who keep God's SACRED CALENDAR. How would we know which "season" is which, or which month is the "beginning of months," if God hadn't ordained the JEWS to preserve that knowledge for us? (Gen. 1:14; Ex. 12:2; Rom.3:2-3).

Thankfully, God's quite capable of ensuring that the Jews - despite themselves - will continue to fulfill this special calling (Num. 23:19; Rom.11:29). So everyone can put away their "calculators" (that only add up to confusion, everybody determining for themselves what's right and what's wrong). God's "business" has a full-time "Jewish accountant" who's solely responsible for the calendar.

Let's not attempt to interfere with God's business as He's chosen to run it. God - through His Jewish agent - has preserved the knowledge of His holy days and the correct dates to observe them for all who truly want to know and share in celebrating God's truth.

For additional vital information on the biblical festivals, I recommend the following free literature (although I disagree with them on the dates for Passover and Pentecost):

Peres spurns Temple Mount for Papal favors

Peres Meets With Pope in Vatican
17:39 Apr 06, '06 / 8 Nisan 5766

The two met for 40 minutes in the Vatican, and the Pope said he hopes to visit Israel sometime in the first half of next year. They said afterwards that they had discussed Middle East matters. "I definitely believe that a visit by the Pope can influence the peace process," Peres told reporters.

Peres is reported, in 1994, to have promised the Vatican official status in Jerusalem.

In February 2000, the Vatican and the Palestinian Authority signed an agreement calling for an internationally guaranteed special status for Jerusalem. The agreement stated that a special statute would protect "equality before the law of the three monotheistic religions [in Jerusalem], the proper identity and sacred character of the city, [and] freedom of access" to the city's holy sites.

Israel objected, saying that freedom of religion is already protected throughout the country. It also opposed the Vatican's treatment of the PA as an independent country.

Shortly afterwards, Pope John Paul II visited Israel, and - unlike one of his predecessors, Pope Paul VI, who visited in 1964 - agreed to come to Jerusalem. Pope John Paul met with the Chief Rabbis in their Jerusalem offices, and visited Yad Vashem as well. Pope Paul, on the other hand, refused to visit Jerusalem, leading then-Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Nissim to boycott his visit altogether.

During his visit in 2000, Pope John Paul II conducted a prayer service in Bethlehem, and announced that the Vatican had always recognized the Palestinians' national rights to a homeland. Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, Dean of Yeshivat Ateret Cohanim, said in response that the Pope's goal was simply to obtain a foothold in Jerusalem for the Church, and that his visit was one way the Pope hoped to reach this goal.

"If the Catholics would at least stop supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state in our land, and stop supporting the other Arab nations around us - then this could be considered a significant step," Rabbi Aviner said.

Pope John Paul II did not expressly apologize for the role played by the Church, and its silence, during the Holocaust. He said instead that the Church is "deeply saddened by the hatred, acts of persecution and displays of anti-Semitism directed against the Jews by Christians at any time and in any place... I fervently pray that our sorrow for the tragedy which the Jewish people suffered in the 20th century will lead to a new relationship between Christians and Jews. Let us build a new future in which there will be no more anti-Jewish feeling among Christians or anti-Christian feeling among Jews..."

Former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau has said that an earlier pope, Pope Pius XII, refused several requests by Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog to meet with him before and during the Holocaust to discuss how the Church could help save Jewish lives. After the war, too, Chief Rabbi Herzog asked for the Pope's assistance in locating Jewish orphans who were cared for by Catholic families, and again, the Pope refused.

The current pope has been following in the footsteps of his predecessor John Paul in trying to improve Jewish-Catholic relations.

Shimon Peres, the bloody vulture who came to power over Rabin's dead body, and now Sharon's as well (and who knows if Ehud Olmert is next?), prostrates himself before the pagan pope in Rome and invites disaster, knowing exactly what he is doing. It's all part of their grand design to sever the heart of Jerusalem from the body of Israel and it all centers around Mount Zion and the Temple Mount.

Watch for the increasingly political pope to call for implentation of UN Resolution 181, acting like an ambassador for world peace while actually the Bavarian pope is nothing but a Roman wolf in sheep's clothing!

Unless the Israelis undergo a serious change of heart and direction, the fascist German-Jesuit EU is destined to seize Jerusalem in a brutal betrayal that will rock the world and shake the nations. All this horror will have been made possibly by treacherous political and religious leaders in Israel - from the vulture Shimon Peres to the butcher Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzger (a silly dove who looks to the Assyrian Germans for salvation).

Yonah Metzger must go!

Attorney General Cited For Condemning Chief Rabbi
15:44 Apr 04, '06 / 6 Nisan 5766
By Hillel Fendel

Chief Rabbi Metzger, who was advised yesterday by Attorney General Mazuz to resign, has turned to the Supreme Court for redress. He says that Mazuz did not afford him a chance to defend himself.

The Bavarian Butcher (Metzger) should resign for colloborating with the dark forces of the Vulture (Peres) and the Bavarian Sorcerer (Pope) to pollute the Temple Mount.

The Month of Redemption

The Month of Redemption

Nissan 5, 5766/April 3, 2006

The month of Nissan, called by the Torah "the first of your months" (Ex. 12:2), is referred to by our sages as "The Month of Redemption." It was in Nissan that the children of Israel marched forth from Egypt toward their destiny as "A kingdom of priests and a holy nation." (Ex. 19:6). Likewise, Nissan will mark the beginning of the future redemption for Israel, and ultimately, the entire family of nations.

The Passover festival is the celebration that marks the anniversary of our freedom. During the Seder we are commanded to relive our miraculous liberation from the bondage of Egypt and recount the story to our children. For we are not just the descendants of those who stepped from slavery to freedom; our very souls were among the six hundred thousand that emerged from the Egyptian crucible [DBA: we are not immortal souls - we were not there but we're to relate to it as if we were]. Recalling and relating details to our children is not enough: we must re-experience our own participation in the exodus, and impart this "first hand experience" to our children.

But what does it mean to be truly free? To be able to do just as I please?

This past week Jews around the world began reading the book of Vayikra (Leviticus). Called by our sages Torat Cohanim, (the book of the priests), sefer Vayikra teaches in detail the laws of purity and the bringing of korbanot - offerings - to the Holy Temple. Perhaps the most misunderstood aspect of all the Divine commandments, the bringing of animal offerings was, and will again be, a central component of the Divine service in the Holy Temple. The bringing of korbanot is a process of drawing closer - karov - to G-d. The offering service enabled man to access all levels of G-d's created world in order to redeem creation and draw closer to Him. The inanimate, (salt), the vegetative, (meal-offerings), and the animal world were all included in the offerings of man at the altar. The ennobling effect of the offering is hard to appreciate in our cynical and detached times. The sages understood this, and therefore instructed that children, guileless and "pure of soul," are best equipped to absorb and understand the laws of purity taught in Vayikra, and should therefore embark upon their Torah studies with this very book.

The liberation from Egypt, and the Passover celebration of our freedom to serve G-d, were also marked by an offering: the korban Pesach, or pascal lamb. Today's "post" Temple pre-Passover preparations and Seder night experience bear scant resemblance to the Passover of Temple times. The week before Passover already saw thousands upon thousands of pilgrims converging on their way to Jerusalem. Having arrived from the furthest reaches of the diaspora, on Passover eve the families of pilgrims, (some years numbering over one million souls), would bring their Passover lamb up to The Holy Temple Courtyard to be offered by the priests. The subsequent Seder meal would focus around both this Pesach offering, as well as the festival chagigah offering.

Please join Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven for a discussion of Nissan, Passover, and the opening chapters of Vayikra in this week's Temple Talk.

What blocks Israel from building the Temple?

A professing Christian asked an alleged Jew on the Protest Warrior forum I frequent:

Why don't y'all build your temple already?

Alleged Jew responded:

Because this is in the way:

My response:

No, it's not in the way. What's in the way is the serious lack of a willing Jewish heart, a repentant Israeli spirit, that first finds a place for God in the heart and mind. The Temple Mount is not "in our hands" because it is not in our hearts. So said a letter of mine published in the Jerusalem Post that Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful, agreed was definitely true.

From that picture you can understand why I call it a "beautiful abomination" with Beyond Babylon. It can help Bible readers to understand why the conquering Israelites under Joshua might have hesitated to destroy what God commanded destroyed - all the pagan shrines, idols and altars. Some were undoubtedly beautiful, even spectacular.

When a sufficient number of Israelis remove the obstacles from their hearts and minds, when the Temple is again important to them as it is to God, the Nazi-Muslim occupation will be history, plain and simple.

Where's the Temple on the Temple Mount?
