MAJOR Prophecy Alert: "Trump Praying At Wall In Jerusalem 3,000 Year Prophecy
Sanhedrin Calls For Trump to Fulfill King Solomon’s Mandate by Praying on Temple Mount
The nascent Sanhedrin sent a letter on Monday to US President Donald Trump, calling on him to ascend to the Temple Mount and pray for world peace when he arrives in Jerusalem next week for his first state visit.
If Trump chooses to answer the call, he will not only be making a powerful political statement but enacting precisely what King Solomon described when he first dedicated the Temple 3,000 years ago.
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman of the Sanhedrin, emphasized the timeliness of this call to prayer at this specific point in history.
“Trump is standing at a historic cusp, when the world can fall into an abyss of conflict,” Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. “Whether it begins in North Korea or Syria or Europe, the seeds of war are already sown.”
The prospect of war is truly chilling, but the rabbi explained that the possibility for great global good is equally as strong.
“Alternatively, President Trump can choose to be a part of a process to bring the Messiah and unprecedented blessing to the world, in the same manner that King Cyrus played his part in building the Second Temple.”
Rabbi Dov Stein, the Secretary General of the Sanhedrin, explained that praying at the holy site is essential for President Trump to achieve his lofty goals.
“President Trump says that he wants to do good in the world, and if this is indeed the case, then God will surely help him in this endeavor,” Rabbi Stein told Breaking Israel News. “In order for any endeavor to succeed, you must ask for God’s help. The proper place for a leader to pray is on the Temple Mount. If President Trump does so, he will receive this blessing, enabling him to achieve great success.”
The rabbi explained that the precedent is described explicitly in the Bible. “When King Solomon completed the Temple some 3,000 years ago, he dedicated the building by calling on foreign kings to come and prayer,” Rabbi Stein said, citing the First Book of Kings.
Moreover concerning the stranger that is not of Thy people Yisrael, when he shall come out of a far country for Thy name’s sake…when he shall come and pray toward this house; hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling-place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to Thee for; that all the peoples of the earth may know Thy name, to fear Thee, as doth Thy people Yisrael, and that they may know that Thy name is called upon this house which I have built. I Kings 8:41-43
“We also feel that if he sees the place for himself, he will better understand the reality of the situation,” Rabbi Stein added. “This will give him insight that previous presidents lacked and will help him find a proper solution, something no other leader has been able to bring about.”
The Sanhedrin’s letter to the US President:
“We, the judges of the Sanhedrin, the high court according to the Torah of Israel, are pleased that you are visiting Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Nation of Israel in which the creator of the world chose as the site of the Holy Temple.
We hope that you will decide to go up to the Temple Mount, Mount Moriah, to the proper areas, and by doing so, you will merit the blessings of King Solomon, who founded the Temple with the intention that foreign leaders will come from afar to bring peace to their lands.
If that is indeed your intention, there is but one way to do this: to declare the raising up of the Temple as a universal human goal within the sanctified Biblically defined boundaries.
The attempts to find a common language with the enemy pertaining the dividing of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel are futile and will not bring any blessing.”
The Sanhedrin recently ruled on the precise boundaries of Jerusalem for the purposes of reinstating the Temple service. This ruling involved mapping specific Biblical references as they apply today. These maps were included in the letter sent to President Trump.
President Trump garnered support from Evangelical Christians and Jews during his campaign by promising to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. His visit Israel next week coincides with the 50th celebration of the unification of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War.
Israel-US spat erupts ahead of Trump visit to region
JERUSALEM (AP) — A diplomatic spat on Monday erupted between U.S. and Israeli officials, just days before a planned visit by President Donald Trump, after an American representative questioned Israel's claim to one of the holiest sites in Judaism.
Israel angrily demanded an explanation from the White House, casting a cloud over the highly anticipated visit by the new president, which is being greeted with a mixture of excitement and nervousness by Israeli officials.
The spat reportedly erupted during preparations for Trump's visit, during which he is planning a stop at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.
There was no immediate comment from the White House.
The Western Wall is revered as the holiest site where Jews can pray, and according to Channel 2 TV, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked to join Trump. The report said the Americans rebuffed the request, with one official telling the Israelis the site is "not your territory." It said the comment prompted shouting from the Israeli preparatory team.
Israel captured the Old City, along with the rest of east Jerusalem, in the 1967 Mideast war. It considers the entire city to be its eternal capital and next week is set to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of what it calls the unification of Jerusalem.
However, the international community does not recognize Israel's annexation of east Jerusalem, which the Palestinians seek as the capital of a future independent state. The Old City is also home to the Al Aqsa Mosque, the third-holiest site in Islam.
The rival claims to east Jerusalem lie at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and often boil over into violence.
An official in Netanyahu's office said the U.S. comment was "received with astonishment" and that Israel had asked the White House for an explanation.
"We are convinced that this remark is in contradiction to the policy of President Trump," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
Israeli officials appear to be growing increasingly nervous over Trump's visit, when he is expected to make an attempt at relaunching long-stalled peace talks with the Palestinians.
On the campaign trail, Trump voiced solidly pro-Israel positions. His campaign platform made no mention of an independent Palestinian state. He showed little concern about Israeli settlement construction on occupied lands claimed by the Palestinians, expressed support for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and vowed to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
He also surrounded himself with a core of advisers with strong ties to the West Bank settlement movement, including his ambassador, David Friedman.
Friedman, a fundraiser for settlement causes and vocal critic of liberal Jewish groups, has backtracked from some of his controversial positions.
On Monday, Friedman, an Orthodox Jew, arrived in Israel to take up his new post and traveled straight to the Western Wall to pray. In an apparent coincidence, Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, was visiting at the same time and briefly spoke to Friedman. Aerosmith is set to perform in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.
"We wanted to come straight to the holiest place in the entire Jewish world, the 'Kotel HaMaaravi', the Western Wall, straight from the airport," Friedman told reporters. "I prayed for the president, I wished him success especially on his upcoming trip."
But since taking office, Trump has called for restraint in settlement construction and signaled he is no hurry to move the embassy. Earlier this month, he held a warm meeting with the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, at the White House.
Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett, a senior member of Netanyahu's coalition government, voiced concern Monday that "there has been a kind of change in the spirit" of Trump's statements since he was elected.
Bennett said he was not sure why Trump has changed his rhetoric.
Bennett said he welcomed Trump's arrival next week, but said Israel also has to stick to its positions. He said Israel must oppose attempts to establish a Palestinian state and insist on Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem "forever."
