Temple Mount Challenge
Exactly a month after three Israeli Arabs brought firearms onto the Temple Mount complex and gunned down two Israeli patrolmen, three Palestinian children were filmed play-shooting toy guns at Israeli policemen.
The man who filmed the video appears to be taking great pleasure from the scene, while an older Palestinian woman standing nearby is seen smiling and documenting the "shooting" as well.
The children in the video are seen shouting at the police officers, calling out "Allahu Akbar," and then following the police squad and continuing to "shoot" at it. The police officers maintained their composure and carried on with their patrol while ignoring the children.
This above story might seem a bit insignificant at first. But what is really happening concerning Israel's rights to the temple mount, a site considered the holiest place for Jews on earth. When the two police men were gunned down in cold blooded murder, the police immediately erected metal detectors at the Muslim entrances to the Mount. And then Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had them removed five days later in what appeared to be another surrender of the Temple Mount.
And just this morning a member of Knesset Likud MK Yehuda Glick declared publicly (from the same party that our Prime Minister leads), 'Binyamin Netanyahu, enough is enough!'. he is frustrated and concerned why the Prime minister continues to restrict members of Knesset onto the Temple mount.
We begin to see that in light of the many things going on, that this child's play is not all so innocent. And this is very important because this shooting and symbolic surrender of the Temple Mount happened to have taken place during the three week period called the dire straights, which ended August 1st.
Please continue to pray as it appears Israel is inching closer and closer to Revelation 11:1 & 2 coming to pass. "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

As we "stand in the gap seeking and interceding for our leaders and the lost, I would like to also offer you the opportunity to listen to a message I gave in south east Missouri recently. I conclude this message with a call to intercede even when it looks like the Lord's judgments are surely imminent, and that the destruction coming is over due. Let the Lord use you in weakness to stand in the gap and cry out for His mercy.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Linda (my wife) and our children. We are hoping to return to the USA on Sunday, July 23rd to visit a dear friend in North Carolina and some others for about ten days.
