On Sukkot, 18th Tishrei 5774 (September 22, 2013), during the Feast of Tabernacles, the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement, the end-time vessel of the G‑d of Israel, conducted a special pilgrimage to the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. During this pilgrimage, the Faithful Movement sent an urgent call to Israel and to the entire world:
"Never will there be peace in Israel or in the world until the Holy Third Temple of G‑d is built and the G‑d of Israel dwells in the midst of His People Israel, and the entire world, in Jerusalem!"
In front of the location of the Holy of Holies, the Faithful Movement proclaimed: "Almost 3,400 years ago the G‑d of Israel called to His People: "Build me a temple and I will dwell among you" (Exodus 25:8). G‑d asked His People Israel to fulfill this call as their first endeavor when they would enter the Promise Land. Indeed, the people of Israel were excited to fulfill this call of G‑d during the biblical history. The tabernacle was the original and temporary temple used during the forty years in the wilderness until King Solomon built the first permanent Holy Temple to the G‑d of Israel in the Land of Israel. Seventy years after the destruction of the First Holy Temple (in 586 bce), the first act of the People of Israel after the regathering from the exile of Babylon to Zion was to answer the call of G‑d through His prophet Haggai and to build, without delay, the Holy Second Temple in the year 516 bce. When they hesitated to do so, the prophet Haggai brought the call of G‑d to His People Israel:
"Thus said the LORD of Hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built. Then came the Word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your well-timbered houses, and this house lie in waste? ... Thus said 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, said the LORD." (Haggai 1:2-4,7-8)
During the Six Day War of 1967, when the G‑d of Israel mightily defeated all of the Arab enemies who came from every side to destroy Israel, He liberated the Holy Temple Mount from a long Arab Islamic occupation. In the aftermath of Israel's monumental victory, G‑d expected His People Israel to immediately rebuild the Holy Temple, the last Temple, the end-time Temple. However, the leadership in Israel decided that it was not the time to build the Holy Third Temple. They were afraid of the reaction from the Islamic world and also from the world-at-large. They did not trust the G‑d of Israel with His promises that He will stand and protect His People Israel in all circumstances as in the biblical times. Unfortunately this great godly and historical moment in Israel's history was met with a weak Israeli leadership that did not understand the significance of this historical juncture nor the purpose and intention of the G‑d of Israel when He returned the Holy Temple Mount to His People Israel forever. As in the days of Zerubbabel and the prophet Haggai, the Israeli leadership in 1967 decided that it was not the right time to build the Holy Third Temple. They put their trust in human power rather than trusting the power of the Almighty G‑d of Israel to stand with them in every circumstance. Just as in biblical times, He has stood with Israel since 1948, boldly defeating many enemies together with His Israeli soldiers when enemy forces have descended upon Israel in seven wars intended to destroy the People of G‑d. Today, the Faithful Movement is calling the Israeli leadership to not fear the power waged by human enemies but rather to trust the promises of the Almighty G‑d of Israel to stand with His People Israel, even against the entire world if necessary. The Faithful Movement echoes her call to Israel to trust the Words of G‑d and to answer the expectations of the G‑d of Israel at this special time:
"Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The LORD has taken away thy judgments, he has cast out thy enemy: the king of Israel, the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil anymore. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thy hands be slack. The LORD thy G‑d is in the midst of thee; a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will be silent in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.... 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 out, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.... Then the nations shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore." (Zephaniah 3:14-17, Zechariah 12:9;14:3, Ezekiel 37:28)
The Faithful Movement declared: "The call of G‑d through His prophets was and is the same call to our generation as well. Israel should immediately answer G‑d's expectations and build the Holy Third Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem." The G‑d of Israel did not liberate the Holy Temple Mount so that the Islamic pagan presence would continue and that His People Israel would continue to worship Him outside of the Holy Temple Mount in front of the Western Wall, as in the years of destruction and exile. That bitter time is over forever! Israel can no longer ignore the call of the Almighty G‑d of Israel. Israel can no longer exist without the G‑d of Israel dwelling in her midst and in the midst of the entire world on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the place where He chose to dwell and to put His Name forever.
More than 2,600 years ago G‑d prophesied through His prophets Isaiah and Micah to our generation, the end-time generation. G‑d spoke very clearly that only after the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, when He will dwell in the midst of His People Israel and the entire world, will real peace come for all mankind:
"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 G‑d 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.... But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of Hosts has spoken it." (Isaiah 2:2-4, Micah 4:1-4)
We live in unpredictable and precarious times filled with wars, terror, and hatred against Israel as her enemies try to stop what G‑d is building together with His People Israel, which includes the rebuilding of His earthly kingdom for the everlasting benefit of the entire world. Today, violence and hatred reaches into every corner and location of our world. The call of the prophets Isaiah and Micah is the call to our generation. It is a clear call to Israel to not wait any longer, to begin building the Holy Third Temple, and to give no attention to fear and weakness but to trust G‑d and obey His Word. Then, and only then, will real peace come to the entire world, when G‑d dwells in the midst of His People Israel and in the entire world in Jerusalem like a splendor-filled tower of light that will enlighten all mankind.
During our 2013 Sukkot pilgrimage, the Faithful Movement commemorated and celebrated the completion of the building of the First Holy Temple by King Solomon more than 2,930 years ago. The First Temple was dedicated to the G‑d of Israel by King Solomon during the Feast of Sukkot: "And all the men of Israel assembled themselves to King Solomon at the feast in the month of Etanim, which is the seventh month" (1 Kings 8:2). When we surrounded the location of the Holy of Holies on the Holy Temple Mount, we prayed from the depth of our hearts the exciting prayers of King Solomon for the soon rebuilding of the Holy Third Temple on this most holy place:
"[T]hat thy eyes may be open towards this house night and day, towards the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou may hearken to the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place. And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray towards this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.... Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but comes out of a far country for thy name's sake: (for they shall hear of thy great name, and of thy strong hand, and of thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray towards this house; hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have built is called by thy name.". (1 Kings 8:29-30,41-43)
When we surrounded the holiest place in the world, we also commemorated the major biblical and historical event when King Solomon brought the Ark of the Covenant to the Holy of Holies of the Temple from the City of David for the first time on the same Feast of Sukkot:
"And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place, into the sanctuary of the house, to the most holy place, under the wings of the keruvim.... There was nothing in the ark save the two tablets of stone, which Moses put there at Horev, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD." (1 Kings 8:6,9-11)
At the same time we also made remembrance of the event in 1981, that could have become a major historical event, when the original Ark of the Covenant could have been discovered by Israel, but unfortunately, the Security Council of the United Nations stopped the Israeli activities at this momentous discovery. Again, it was the weakness of Israeli leadership that surrendered to the shameful U.N. resolution (all the details of this major event will be shared in another article).
During this wonderful 2013 Sukkot event, Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement, deeply thanked the many righteous people from the nations who love the G‑d and People of Israel with such a great outpouring of love exactly as G‑d called them to do. He blessed all of those who are standing with the Faithful Movement and the nation of Israel, and who help the Movement with such wide-open hearts of dedication to bring to fulfillment the major historical campaign of the Faithful Movement during the lifetime of our generation. Their love towards the People of G‑d, and their acts of standing hand-in-hand with the Faithful Movement, will hold an important place in the memorial book of G‑d and the annals of modern history.
It was such an exciting event when thousands of these righteous people from the nations traveled to Israel for the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) 2013 and marched in the huge parade through the central avenues of Jerusalem, sharing their magnanimous love for the G‑d and People of Israel, and fulfilling the call of G‑d to the nations. This Sukkot these wonderful people came from over fifty nations worldwide with the largest contingents arriving from Brazil, China, and Finland. The growing numbers of visitors from the nations coming to Israel during the recent Sukkot feasts of the past decade is another clear sign of the prophetic days in which we live:
"And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD on that day, and shall be my people.... And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations who came against Jerusalem, shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Sukkot [Feast of Tabernacles]." (Zechariah 2:15;14:16)
