Living the Neviim

The plan will of course be based on the concept of ‘two nations for two peoples’, which translates in Israel turning over the eastern portion of Yerushalayim to serve as the capital of a Palestinian state. In actuality, Obama thinks the solution will be found by ‘internationalizing’ Jerusalem, turning it over to United Nations control, a solution that the American president apparently believes will be more palatable to Israel than turning Jerusalem over to the PA directly.

I couldn't stop smiling while reading the beginning of this article. No, I'm not reminded me of the story of Rabbi Akiva laughing at the foxes coming out of the Kodesh Hakodashim. He was able to see the positive side of the prophecy regarding the foxes on Har Habayit-- that just as this prophecy has come true, the final redemption would also come true quickly.

Every day we say "Ve'Alu Moshi'im Be'Har Tzion Lishpot Et Har Esav, VeHayta LaShem HaMelucha VeHayta Hashem Lemelech Al Kol HaAretz, Bayom Hahu Yihye Hashem Echad Ushmo Echad". Loosely translated - 'And helpers will ascent Mt. Zion to judge the mountain of Esav; And the kingship will be to Hashem (i.e. overtly) and Hashem will be the King of the whole world. On that day Hashem will be One and His name One.

We've been praying and hoping for that day to come. There is no doubt it is coming. We don't have to predict it, it's clear for all to see. Just to note - the UN usually calls themselves "peacekeepers" or "aid workers" - both terms can easily fit the translation of Moshi'im - "helpers". The attempt to internationalize Jerusalem will be the focal point of the war of Gog Umagog. It is during that time, that Hashem will make His presence known and unbelievable miracles will take place. Let's take note....we're living the text of the Nevi'im.
