Pence concludes Middle East trip with visit to Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City
ice President Mike Pence wrapped his trip to Israel with a visit to Jerusalemâ€™s Western Wall -- one of Judaismâ€™s holiest sites -- after meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
It is a move that will further anger Palestinians already enraged by the U.S. administrationâ€™s recognition of the contested city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The ancient site is the holiest place where Jews can pray. It is located in the Old City, an area that falls within East Jerusalem, which was captured by Israel in 1967 and formally annexed in 1980. It is considered to be occupied Palestinian territory by most of the international community but Israel disputes this.
Pence says US embassy in Jerusalem 'will open before the end of next year'...
Penny, I hope you notice I didn't mention once the Wailing Wallâť— if you had noted the articles that I put up they had to do with Jerusalem and secondarily the temple, there being a third one during the tribulation. But as you should remember - -

Old Testament believers have their specific requirements from their specific revelation from God, and we in the Church Age have ours. The requirements, and the revelation upon which those requirements are based, are not identical in every dispensation.

These are: The Adamic Covenant The Noahic covenant The Abrahamic Covenant The Mosaic Covenant The New Covenant, or Covenant of Grace
All dispensations require belief in Godâ€™s way to Redemption. The Old Testament saints looked forward to the Messiah -Godâ€™s sacrificial grace gift to redeem mankind. Saints today look back to that sacrifice by the Lord Jesus Christ, who fulfilled Godâ€™s redemptive requirements

Jim, this seems more important to you than anything else.... you know the wailing wall was never part of the temple right? and that people who go there are not seeing remission of sins because Jesus said that we would worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
indeed, when the disciples who were in the same error as Pence looked at the glory of the temple, Jesus said that it would come down, all of it, and then He said that He was the true temple, and the lost sinners need to hear this, He was raised on the third day.
And He also spoke of those who would follow Him would be the temple of the HOly Spirit.
Because He would save them from their sins and imbue in them the Holy Spirit.
So whatever Pence hopes to find there, if he doesn't have it already, he isn't going to find it there.
The Prince of Peace is not had by chariots but by the atonement of the Messiah who already came.
He is King of the Jews. The one and only and it is by His Kingdom that we are saved and no other.
And the first temple was Eden itself.
The wailing wall was a wall of the Roman garrison.
weap and wail, it won't do a thing.
the walls were there because of sin, and the walls brought back cannot make God come back.
There are many reasons why we can say that the modern state of Israel is prophetically significant and of stage-setting significance for the tribulation. I will list a few here, but will do a more thorough job in a forthcoming book. First of all, Israel is not going to get pushed into the sea. Second, France, England, Germany and the United States are not mentioned hundreds of times throughout the Bible as is the case with Israel. The Bible says many times that Israel is not done in history, but many Christians act as if that were not true. Paul said in Romans, â€ť I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be!â€ť (Rom. 11:1a)....
...First, there was to be a regathering in unbelief in preparation for judgment, namely the judgment of the tribulation. This was to be followed by a second world-wide regathering in faith in preparation for blessing, namely the blessings of the messianic age. Once it is recognized that the Bible speaks of two such regatherings, it is easy to see how the present state of Israel fits into prophecy....

Thomas Ice wrote: No new development is needed for the next event on Godâ€™s prophetic calendar to take place and that is Christâ€™s rapture of the church. It must take place before the seven-year Tribulation and it could happen at any moment. Are you ready? Do you know Christ as your Savior? That is the only way that one can prepare himself for this important event. In the mean time, church age believers are watching and waiting for our Lord, while keeping an eye on developments in the holy land. There can be no doubt that our God is in control of history and has told us in advance through Bible prophecy what we can expect. What can we expect? We can expect increasing hostility to revolve around Jerusalem. It will not be until the second coming of Christ to planet earth that Jerusalem will realize her destiny as a city of peace and light to all the nations. Maranatha!

This is not the newest of articles, but still the players are still there even if their names have changed.
Herb Keinon wrote: Former US president Barack Obama, his vice president Joe Biden, and their secretaries of state Hillary Clinton and John Kerry all gave numerous high-profile speeches in Israel and about Israel during their years in office....
But listening to them, you always knew there would be a â€śbutâ€ť clause. You expected as a matter of course that somewhere in the middle of their speech â€“ starting with a line about the importance of â€śgood friendsâ€ť being open with one another and telling each other the truth â€“ the honey would turn to vinegar....
What made Penceâ€™s speech remarkable was simply that there was no â€śbutâ€ť clause.
The speech was also striking for certain elements that were put in the address, and others that were left out....

Excellent observations on vice president Pence's speech
Theodore Roosevelt not only pointed out that we should complain about a president when he does something wrong but the compliment him when he does something right. Well in this country we don't consider the vice president such august personality as the president, but still some of the same principles apply, â€” The Kansas City Star, 18 May 1918[/QUOTE]--[URL=http://www.snopes.com/theodore-roosevelt-on-criticizing-the-president/]]]http://tinyurl.com/jz7b4hb (The President-Reject)[/URL]
Vice president Pence should be complimented for his a speech before the Knesset. He probably in reminded some of the secular Jews what their own Bible told them about Jerusalem.
1 Kings 11:35-36 But I will take the kingdom out of his son's hand and will give it to you, ten tribes. Yet to his son I will give one tribe, that David my servant may always have a lamp before me in Jerusalem, the city where I have chosen to put my name. ---ESV
