Leviticus 23:15-16 ‘You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete Sabbaths. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord.

On a Gregorian calendar in the year of 2021, the holiday of Shavuot/Feast of Weeks/Pentecost begins at sunset on Sunday, May 16th. The God Appointed holiday ends at sunset Tuesday, May 18th. The Feast takes place in the month of Sivan on the 6th and 7th of a Hebrew calendar. This is the Hebrew year 5781.

Shavuot is one of the three holidays where Jewish men are required to come to Jerusalem (Exodus 23:14-17). The men were to make their presentation and sacrifice before God at the Temple.

Exodus 23:14-17 “Three times in the year you shall keep a feast to me. You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. None shall appear before me empty-handed. You shall keep the Feast of Harvest, of the firstfruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall keep the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor. Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord GOD.

We are one week out from the fourth of seventh God appointed holidays. Tensions are running high in Jerusalem, specifically on the Temple Mount.

May 8, 2021: The Muslims are about to complete their month long holiday of Ramadan on the evening of Wednesday, May 12th. Palestinians and Muslims have made their way to the Temple Mount to worship at the Al Aqsa Mosque. There is an estimated 75,000 to 100,000 worshippers attending the events. Upwards of 200+ Palestinians have been injured according to various estimates.

Today marks the second day of confrontation between Muslim worshippers and the Israeli forces. Israel claims the Palestinians initiated the violence by throwing rocks and shooting fireworks at Israeli security.

“Israel is acting responsibly to ensure respect for law and order in Jerusalem while allowing freedom of worship,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Palestinians are upset over the looming eviction of families from disputed neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.

Trend Update: Ramadan Peace Conference in Istanbul, June 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on June 26, 2017 by paulthepoke

Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)…” –Jesus

Let me re-introduce Adnan Oktar. He is an Islamic scholar and a peace activist. Adnan Oktar openly speaks against anti-Semitism on his TV program in Turkey.  He calls for Abraham’s children to come together. He has publically stated Muslims will build the Jewish Temple along with Solomon’s palace. Oktar states the Temple will be rebuilt when global peace and tranquility are at hand.

June 14, 2017: Adnan Oktar hosted a Ramadan celebration in Istanbul, Turkey. Peoples of different culture and religions were invited.

Guests included Jewish rabbis; Christian priests; politicians; members of the Turkish Assyrian, Armenian, Jewish, Greek Orthodox and Catholic communities; Jaffari, Alawite and Bekhtashi communities; orders of the Nakshibendi and the Kadiri; followers of the Treatise of Light (Nur), and National Vision Movement (Milli Görüş).

The idea was to come together in an atmosphere of love and peace.

“People are more religious in Israel, that is a blessing for the entire region and the Islamic world. They are not aware that Jews are people of love. We all will be students of the King Moshiach, the King Messiah. The love for Moshiach brings blessings to Israel, this is a vital matter. God protects Israel from all troubles. If anyone attempts any harm against Israel, we will bring heavens down on them. God promised you to live on that land. You are a blessing for Muslims, but they can’t appreciate this,” Adnan Oktar.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick of the Israeli Knesset made the road trip to Istanbul. He offered kind words for the gathering hosted by Oktar.

“My dear friend, honorary Mr. Adnan Oktar, champion of religious tolerance, champion of love to all human beings, champion of God in the world…” -Yehuda Glick

Currently, the world is in conflict and escalating towards more military intervention on a greater scale. Humanity is not trending toward peace.

Let me be clear. I am not suggesting Adnan Oktar is the antichrist or the false prophet. But I am suggesting that any man who comes in peace is one to monitor closely. Somebody will emerge from this global mess and appear to have an answer for world peace.

After all, he seems reasonable. He seems like someone we can work with…

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
