I don't find in your writings the future of
the Arabs or Islam. The goal of Islam is jihad until all
lands they once held are restored and a nation of Islamic
The Scriptures tell the future of Israel, their restoration
of the Kingdom and their place as the head of nations under
the rule of God, with all the lands they once held at the
time of David and Solomon.
Can you clarify?
James W Maycock, Mobile, Al
Forget about the Land once held at the time of David and
Solomon. Things have moved on since then. The aim of Judaism
is to spread knowledge of the One True God. At the time
of David and Solomon the Jews were alone; now the majority
of mankind acknowledges and worships the One True God -
the God of Israel.
Religion is a human institution: all those who acknowledge
and worship the One True God are equal in the sight of Heaven
and Should be treated as equal in every respect.
There is no need to re-build Solomon's Temple, which lasted
only 300 years. The second Temple lasted 500 years. When
the Moslems conquered Jerusalem they offered the site of
the Temple to be re-built by the Jews, who refused to take
it. Then the Moslem conquerors waited fifty years - the
Jubilee period of the Bible, after which land reverts to
the authority Of the State. It was then that the Dome of
the Rock was built by King Abdul Malik; that is the re-built
Temple of King Solomon, which should now be open to Moslems,
Jews and Christians and to all others who acknowledge the
One True God.
It is now for the Muslims to make the next move. Their leaders
should declare that the Dome Of The Rock is the historic
temple to the One True God, and invite the Jews and the
Christians as well as all other believers to participate
there in a combined act of worship.
