Shabbat shalom, family and friends. It is Passover, Pesach, and Shabbat begins at sunset today also. Exodus 12 provides the account of Passover, and for those who don’t normally celebrate Passover as a non-Jewish believer, you can. Read Exodus 12 and don’t eat anything with leaven beginning at sunset today, ending at sunset on the seventh day following. Remove leaven from your diet for seven days. The leaven represents sin. Removing it demonstrates following Christ and living a sanctified life.
The Passover lamb is a type and shadow of the death of Jesus, the Lamb of God (John 1:29), slain to redeem us from our sins. The blood of the lamb placed on the two sides and upper door posts of their homes on Passover, which caused the death angel to “pass over” the Jews and not slay their firstborn, is a type and shadow of our salvation through the blood of Jesus, which He shed on the cross to redeem us from eternal destruction – hell.
Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.
As a Jewish family had the table set for Shabbat and awaited other friends and relatives to arrive, also celebrating the birth of their grandchild Shabbat morning, a neighboring Palestinian arrived.
The family welcomed him in, thinking he was a neighbor who had come to celebrate with them, but to their horror, the Palestinian terrorist stabbed three family members to death with a large knife, critically wounding another, before he could be stopped.
Omar al-Abed, 19, who lived in a nearby village, entered the house and began slashing the elder resident, Yosef Salomon, 70, his daughter Chaya Salomon, 46, and son Elad Salomon, 36, who all died at the scene. Al-Abed also attacked Yosef Salomon’s wife Tova, 68, who was critically wounded and transported to a hospital in Yerushalayim.
Elad’s wife was able to rush the children into a room, lock the door and call police.
In the meantime, a neighbor, who is an IDF elite unit soldier, heard the commotion and looking through a window of the house, saw al-Abed, who was still hacking one of his victims, so he immediately shot through the window, wounding him.
Al-Abed admitted to investigators that he went into the Halamish settlement to kill Jews because of the tension at the Temple Mount.
Israel placed metal detectors to entrances at the Temple Mount, after Muslim terrorists smuggled automatic weapons in, killing three policemen just days ago. Since the placement of the metal detectors, Palestinians have been rioting, alleging the metal detectors are an infringement of their rights.
Give Muslim terrorists an inch, and they want a mile, killing you for giving only an inch!
When asked to call for peace among the rioters, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he is “freezing all contacts with Israel,” until the metal detectors are removed.
Palestinians come to the Temple Mount, killing three Israeli police, and metal detectors are placed to ensure Palestinians do not smuggle more weapons onto the Temple Mount, to prevent the killing of even more police officers. Is that unreasonable?
The Palestinians believe so, and they are rioting.
This would be my response to Palestinian temper tantrums because of metal detectors:
“Get off the Temple Mount – for good, because every Palestinian (terrorist) is being kicked out of Israel entirely! By the way, all of your property is being seized as reparation for all of the terror attacks, killings and damage your people have waged against Israelis!”
Of course, every surrounding Arab nation would get really mad and ready to fight, but that’s when I would blow them all, every surrounding Muslim nation, to nuclear hell!
This will never happen, of course, because I don’t govern Israel and because this scenario doesn’t line up with Bible prophecy.
So, we will just have to wait until Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) arrives and takes care of the mess, and He will, and the blood is going to pour, and that won’t be Jewish blood this time!
The Word of God tells us,
“Who is this that comes from Edom with dyed garments from Bozrah (Modern Jordan, who also controls religious matters at the Al-Aqsa Mosque located on the Temple Mount, and who is also in the middle of the current conflict), this that is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore are you red in your apparel and your garments like him who treads in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone, and of the people, there was none with Me, for I will treadthem in My anger and trample them in My fury, and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments and I will stain all my raiment; for the day of vengeance is in My heart and the year of My redeemed is come” Isaiah 63:1-4 (emphasis added).
This is the Lord speaking to Isaiah about his “day of vengeance” against “Edom” and “Bozrah,” Jordanian Muslims today; He will pour out their blood so profoundly that “all” of His raiment will be stained with blood.
The “year of My redeemed is come;” might that just be the year in which the Jordanian mufti encourages all kinds of trouble and rioting against Jerusalem, which just so happens to be this year?
Zechariah also prophesied of the Day of the Lord:
“And this shall be the plague that the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth” Zechariah 14:12.
This little bit of horror is reserved for the rest of the nations that come against Jerusalem, and they will come.
The Lord apparently doesn’t need any help; He has His own “Final Solution” planned out.
Some would say, Oh, that can’t be right; that’s not a description of our sweet Jesus, the Lamb of God, who died to take away the sins of the world. There must be some mistake!

I think not.
