On Yom Kippur, Jerusalem’s most sacred piece of property must be a place of peace

Just like in the Days of Moses, the Lord God says,” Let my people go that they can come worship Me..”

We stand and wait for our Blessed Hope to deliver us from this bondage in the same way..

Prepare for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

The holiest day in the Jewish year is Yom Kippur, which begins at sundown Wednesday. The holiest place in the Jewish world is the Temple Mount, which is located in Jerusalem.

The restriction on all but Islamic prayer on the Temple Mount was born of compelling practical concerns.

In ancient times, the Holy Temple that sat atop the mount featured prominently in the celebration of the holiday, as it did in other Jewish festivals. According to rabbinic tradition, this holiest of holy sites was located on the place where Abraham bound up his son Isaac to offer him to God before God instructed him instead to sacrifice a ram, making clear that Judaism forbids human sacrifice.

Even after the temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 C.E., the spot has remained the holiest in Judaism. Across the millennia, while the site was occupied by pagans, Christians and Muslims, Jews the world over have continued to face toward it during prayer(as Muslims do toward Mecca).

And yet, now that Israel controls this most sacred piece of property, Jews are forbidden from praying there, even as Muslims can. The nearest place Jews are allowed to gather in prayer is along the Western Wall, the Herodian-era retaining wall surrounding the Temple Mount. Every year, thousands of Jews pray there instead on Yom Kippur.

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for payment for your sins.
