On Tisha b'Av (9 Av 5770/20 July 2010) — the day commemorating the destruction of the first and second Temple (586 bce and 70 ce, respectively) — the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement marched to the Temple Mount of G‑d in Jerusalem. There was both mourning for the destruction of the Temples as well as for carrying the call and message to immediately rebuild the eternal Third Temple of G‑d on Mount Moriah. According to Biblical tradition both the temples were destroyed on Tisha b'Av and the third Temple will be rebuilt by the G‑d of Israel on Tisha b'Av. Then the day of mourning and fasting will become a day of rejoicing:
"Thus says the Lord: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the Holy Mountain.... Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.... And the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall become times of joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts to the house of Judah; therefore love truth and peace." (Zechariah 8;3,7-8,18-19).
Indeed, we could feel the strong presence of the G‑d of Israel among us in the air of Jerusalem, and especially on the Holy Mountain. We felt like it was a message from G‑d that in the near future the end time prophecies of comfort are going to be fulfilled, and that our generation is going to witness marvelous godly end time events and that in the midst of them the rebuilding of the Temple of G‑d that will open the door for the coming of Messiah Ben David, which will change the face of all mankind and will create a real godly peace (Isaiah 2;1-4 ).
It was so exciting to be witnesses of another end time prophecy while we marched in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount and to see how G‑d is encouraging us to complete our Holy work:
"Again the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts; I was zealous for Zion with great zeal, and I was zealous for her with great fury.... Thus says the Lord of hosts: Old men and old women shall again dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for the fullness of days. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets.... Thus says the Lord of hosts: Let your hands be strong, you who hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, who spoke on the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid, saying that the temple might be built.... Thus says the Lord of hosts: It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities; And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts. I will go also. And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men from the nations of every language, shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, We will go with you; for we have heard that God is with you." (Zechariah 8;1-2,4-5,9 20-23)
This special event started at 11:00 am in the front of the Holy Temple Mount. The chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement, Gershon Salomon, called the government and the people of Israel to immediately remove the presence of the Arab Islamic enemy from the Holy Temple Mount of G‑d and rebuild the Temple, and to open a new godly era in the life of Israel and all the nations exactly as it was prophesied.
Later we marched to the Temple Mount, surrounding the location of the Temple itself. In the most Holy place where King David, King Solomon, the prophets of Israel, the priests, and millions of Jews walked on the holy ground and came in holiness through worship and to show their love to their Father, the almighty G‑d of Israel, we felt how the G‑d of our forefathers is covering us with His love and encouraging us to build His house without delay. We could feel, and even hear from heaven, the coming call of G‑d:
"Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say that the time has not yet 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, yourselves, to dwell in your well timbered houses, while this house lies in ruins?... Thus says 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, says the Lord." (Haggai 1;2-4,7-8)
It was an exciting event, which had never happened in the last 1,940 years since the destruction of the second Temple in the year 70 ce, when the many members of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement, and many other Israelis that joined them, read the book of Lamentations on the big pile of large stones that had fell from the holy Temple when the Romans destroyed the Temple. The archaeologists of Israel discovered those beautiful holy stones and left them in exactly the same place as they fell 1,940 years ago. These stones are a message of the generation of the destruction to our generation to rebuild the Temple without delay, using the same stones. When we prayed the book of Lamentations on these Holy stones we felt the exciting godly prophetic reality and the fulfillment of the end time prophetic word of G‑d — the major event of the redemption of Israel that we are now experiencing everyday in Israel, and at the same time the removing of the enemies of Israel — Babel and Rome — who destroyed both temples. In the same time we felt that it is a message and a warning to the enemies of Israel today who want to destroy the Third Kingdom of the G‑d and the people of Israel.
Immediately after Tisha b'Av the Temple Mount and land of Israel Faithful Movement started new intensive efforts to answer the call of G‑d without delay, and to rebuild the house of G‑d in our lifetime. Nothing will stop our holy work. We shall continue to work day and night to answer this call of G‑d and to bring it to pass.
