The events in the middle east once again show just how the Jewish and Palestinian citizens of that holy city continue to agree to disagree when it comes to the religions of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish inhabitants of that city that all claim as their own. When president Trump said that the United States will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem it set off a firestorm of protests across the Moslem world.
The times we now live in and face in the coming years will bear out what we all know as biblical prophecy and in the book of Revelations. America has a symbiotic relationship with Israel that is a given. We will once again be drawn into a final conflict, not between good and evil but two different attitudes when it comes to our religious beliefs.
It always seems that around the time when those of us in the western world look at the middle east in a sanitized view as one would see on a Christmas card we get from others at this time of the year. In the part of the world where Christ was born, there is more uncertainty than ever about who will control this holy city. If ever there was a time for the second coming of Christ it is here for all to witness and endure. Lest we forget.
