Jerusalem!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll let you know about something that is happening in Jerusalem, Israel.

Here is a link for an article by worldisraelnews.com that is entitled, Tensions rise ahead of opening of mosque in Jewish quarter of Jerusalem's Old City:  https://worldisraelnews.com/tensions-rise-ahead-of-opening-of-mosque-in-jewish-quarter-of-jerusalems-old-city/?utm_source=MadMimi&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Mosque+Opening+in+Jewish+Quarter+of+Jerusalem%E2%80%99s+Old+City%2C+Tension+Rises%3B+Netanyahu+Not+Required+to+Resign%3B+Saar+Stymied+to+Replace+Netanyahu%3B+US+Firefighters+Help+Israelis+Under+Attack&utm_campaign=20191125_m155433394_Mosque+Opening+in+Jewish+Quarter+of+Jerusalem%E2%80%99s+Old+City%2C+Tension+Rises%3B+Netanyahu+Not+Required+to+Resign%3B+Saar+Stymied+to+Replace+Netanyahu%3B+US+Firefighters+Help+Israelis+Under+Attack&utm_term=_0D_0A_09_09_09_09_09_09_09_09_09_09Read+Now_0D_0A_09_09_09_09_09_09_09_09_09.

Did you click on the link, and read the article?  I hope you did!  Here s some of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

This is a “blatant effort to stir up religious tensions and challenge Israeli sovereignty and legitimacy in the Old City,” says the founder of non-profit Keep Jerusalem. 

Residents of the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem are preparing for widespread protests following the renovation and reopening of the Sidna Omar mosque in the heart of the neighborhood.

The mosque, located on the main road to the Western Wall and in close proximity to several Jewish educational institutions, has been closed for decades and will open to Muslim worshipers in the coming weeks after undergoing renovations paid for by Jordan. This development has become a source of great concern in the Jewish Quarter and among Jewish communities in Jerusalem and abroad.

Over the weekend, representatives of a newly established action committee and rabbis convened for a meeting in which they concluded that “the evil of decree must be annulled, and efforts should commence to hold a dialogue with Waqf to prevent an outburst.”

Residents of the Jewish Quarter told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) they are outraged at what they say is the incompetence of the Israeli authorities, and especially the Jerusalem municipality, which they said has known about the renovations but has taken no action. Likewise, the police admitted that they knew about the renovations but did not comment or act on the matter, they said.

It also stated (I copied/pasted):

TPS has learned that Jordan intends to renovate more Muslim sites in the Old City, assisted by the Al Quds Commission, which is sponsored by the King of Morocco, including the Yaaqubi Mosque and the Omar Ben-Khatab Mosque adjacent to the Holy Sepulcher.

Oooeee!

Obviously things are not going well in Jerusalem, Israel.

Why?

Because as the article stated, there is an issue happening, regarding the Jewish area of the Old City in Jerusalem... that is being affected by a Muslim/Islamic mosque.

Obviously, there is NOT peace, there.

Why?

Obviously, Muslims are trying to hurt the Jewish Old City area.

Why do I think that?

If they weren't, then they would NOT want a mosque in the Jewish section... especially, since it hadn't been there a long time, because they have their own area now in the Old City portion of Jerusalem.

I believe you would agree with me, if you realize that the Muslims actually have an Islamic area in the Jerusalem Old City.

I believe prayer is needed.

Thinking about that, made me think about Psalm 122:6, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.".

Amen!  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

If you haven't been to Jerusalem, then look online... and you will see that I mentioned truth.

After all, I have been in Jerusalem!

Yes, I spent a lot of time in the Old City portion of Jerusalem... in every section... including the Jewish and Muslim/Islamic sections.

Please... join me in prayer... for peace... in...  Jerusalem.

If we all pray... I believe God will bless us.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
