On day six we went “up” to Jerusalem. Our tour guide played music to accompany our trip as the Hebrews would have sung the Psalms of Accent. The city buildings were all covered in Limestone and/or Marble giving them a brilliant appearance in the Midday sun. At the center of the city stood the dome of the Rock – a Muslim Mosque where the Temple of God once stood. I remembered the prophecy of Jesus that one day the “Abomination of Desolation” would stand in the Holy place – This mosque is there until the incarnation of Anti-Christ arrives.
Below the Mosque we could see the Eastern gate – the one through which Messiah will enter upon His return. It was sealed by the Muslims to prevent that from happening. Somehow I doubt that concrete will be a great hindrance to the one who comes riding upon a white horse with a robe dipped in blood.
