The Dogma of the Rock
The Sacred Rock inside the mosque of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, is believed to be located on top of Mount Moriah in the place where Ishmael was offered as a sacrifice by Abraham, from whom Muslims are descended.
Ezekiel 7:22: "I will turn my face away from them, and they will desecrate my treasured place; robbers will enter it and desecrate it." This prophecy was fulfilled!
Other prophecies proclaim that before Jesus returns, Jerusalem will be the center of attention in the international community.
Jesus spoke about the profanation to come at the holy place the Temple Mount (Matthew 24:15) and he announced that Jerusalem would be "surrounded by armies" and governed by nations (Luke 21:20-24 and Zechariah 12).
After Jerusalem was discredited when it was governed by Arabs and Turks, the city and the Temple Mount became the center of conflicts in the Middle East.
At the dawn of the 21st century, many demand that Jerusalem be placed under the control of the United Nations, the Vatican, or Islam. Jesus predicted that this would happen just before His return; this is happening today!
