On Passover, 17 Nisan 5777, Wednesday, April 13, 2017, the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement, which is committed to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in our lifetime, and during a very critical time all over the world, conducted a special Pilgrimage March to biblical Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount to fulfill the commandment of the G‑d of Israel and to make another important step towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Another purpose of the Pilgrimage March was to carry and share a very clear message from the G‑d of Israel to all the world, and especially to the United Nations who just recently passed a shameful and false resolution that Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount do not belong to Israel but rather belong to the Muslims and that Jerusalem is not the capital of the people of G‑d, Israel. The United Nations made this disgraceful and erroneous resolution with no fear of the judgment of G‑d and history.
As we stood on the Holy Temple Mount, we felt that G‑d was expecting us to share His answer to the United Nations regarding their shameful and false resolution:
“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you ...” (Genesis 12:3)
As we stood next to the location of the Holy of Holies on the Holy Temple Mount, we could hear the Word of G‑d again saying to the enemies of Israel:
“Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you.... For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent. And give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength: 'Surely I will no longer give your grain as food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, for which you have labored'. Indeed the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the world: “Say to the daughter of Zion, surely your salvation is coming; Behold, His reward is with Him and His work before Him. And they shall call them the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, a City Not Forsaken.” (Isaiah 52:1;62:1,6-8,11-12)
The Faithful Movement proclaimed this message of the G‑d of Israel at a very critical time when the Islamic Arab enemies of Israel, along with other powers in the world such as the United Nations, the European Union, and the office of the Pope (Vatican), want to seize the Holy Temple Mount and Jerusalem from Israel and to make Jerusalem an Islamic and so-called “Palestinian” capital. How can they ignore 3,000 years of history since the city of Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of Israel when King David, according to the Word of G‑d, spoken to him and to Israel, made Jerusalem the eternal capital of His people Israel? How can they ignore in such a brazen, shameful, and falsified way that the Holy Temple Mount was given by G‑d to Abraham and his seed when G‑d made the eternal covenant with our forefather, Abraham, that bequeathed all the Promised Land to the people of Israel? How can they ignore that the people of Israel answered the call of G‑d and built the Holy Temple to His glory and honor? How can they ignore the faithfulness of Israel to Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount during thousands of years when Israel repeatedly paid a terrible price of blood when enemies came to rob Jerusalem from Israel? The people of Israel swear today to it’s enemies and to all of these powers: “Never Again! The G‑d and the people of Israel will not allow you to put your hands on the Holy Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and any part of the Holy Land of Israel given by G‑d to Israel only for His godly purpose.”
During this exciting Passover Pilgrimage Jubilee and Freedom March 2017, we prayed the Passover prayers and sang the Hallel of the Psalms just as the Levites used to sing in the Holy Temple. The priests who came with us anointed the Omer to be an offering from our generation to the G‑d of Israel. We did this as one of the important preparations for the rebuilding and worship in the Holy Temple. The Omer that we brought was divided into twelve portions. Each portion of the twelve symbolized one of the twelve tribes of Israel, and in this way, the deep, eternal, and immutable bond between the twelve tribes of Israel and the G‑d of Israel and Jerusalem was proclaimed.
The Passover Pilgrimage March of the Faithful Movement to the Holy Temple Mount followed the exact route that our forefathers, who journeyed from outside of Jerusalem, used on their way to the Holy Temple Mount. The march continued from the Jaffa Gate of biblical Jerusalem through the streets of the Old City to the Holy Temple Mount. We called this special Passover Pilgrimage March 2017 the “Jubilee and Freedom March” in order to openly and clearly declare before the G‑d of Israel, the people of Israel, and even before the entire world that we are marching as a critical display of our struggle and campaign to liberate the Holy Temple Mount from any Islamic presence. The intolerable situation that still exists today on the Holy Temple Mount, that of the foreign presence of Islam situated on the Holy Mountain of G‑d, the precise location of the Holy Temple Mount and the Holy of Holies where the Shekina of G‑d was and should dwell again and the place for which we dedicated our lives, can no longer continue! This is a terrible abomination and desecration of the heart, the soul, and the spirit of the G‑d and the people of Israel. After 2,000 years of painful exile, and through countless miracles, G‑d has returned the people of Israel back to their covenanted Land and specifically to the very heart-and-soul of the G‑d and people of Israel, the treasured Holy Temple Mount, not so the Jewish people can visit these holy places as tourists. No!! G‑d has delivered the Holy Temple Mount to the people of Israel to be the place where His Shekina dwells among His people Israel and where the people of Israel come three times in the year, on the Passover, Shavuot (Feast of Weeks), and Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles) festivals in order to see their G‑d and to be seen by Him and to show their love to the Almighty G‑d of Israel who created His people Israel for a great purpose: "to be a holy nation, a kingdom of priests and a light to the nations" (Exodus 19:5-6;Isaiah 42:6;49:6).
Our Passover Freedom March 2017 marked this important 'Jubilee Year', which commemorates 50 years of the liberation of the city of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount by the G‑d of Israel with His Israeli forces in the year 1967. The intention of G‑d in the victorious Six Days War was to open the second stage of the redemption of His people Israel. In combination with our ‘Jerusalem Day’ events, which were conducted this year on May 24th, this ‘Passover Jubilee and Freedom March’ was another part of the preparations of the Faithful Movement toward the rebuilding of the Third Holy Temple in our lifetime with no delay.
In his speech in front of the Holy Temple Mount, Gershon Salomon, the chairman of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement, called the people of Israel and their leaders to awaken and to fulfill the call of G‑d to our generation and to immediately build the Third Holy Temple. Before the G‑d of Israel, he swore that the campaign of the Faithful Movement will not stop until the Holy Temple is rebuilt and until Jewish worship and prayer is moved from the Western Wall — the temporary place that symbolizes exile and destruction — to the correct and rightful place where G‑d commanded His people Israel to build His Holy House on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Gershon warned the people of Israel and the entire world that never will there be peace, not in the Middle East nor in the entire world, until the Holy Temple is rebuilt. He prayed before G‑d and the people of Israel and read the Word of the G‑d of Israel to our end-time generation:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the G—d of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths; for from Zion shall go forth Torah, and the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more.... But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of Hosts has spoken it." (Isaiah 2:2-4, Micah 4:1-4)
In his speech, Gershon declared that the future of the entire world depends on the rebuilding of the Holy Temple only in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G‑d and people of Israel, when G‑d will reign from Jerusalem and lead the future of the entire world forever. This upcoming and glorious future for our world is described so clearly in the Word of G‑d through His prophets.
Atop the Holy Temple Mount, the members of the Faithful Movement surrounded the location of the Holy Temple and the Holy of Holies. Their hearts were drawn to this most holy place in all the world with the prayer to G‑d that the next Passover Pilgrimage will lead to the rebuilt Holy Temple situated on this most Holy Temple Mount of the G‑d of Israel. We could very strongly feel the presence of G‑d along the way to the Holy Temple Mount and on the Holy Temple Mount itself. We experienced the deepest feeling that the construction of the Third Holy Temple is near at hand.
This important and most exciting Passover Pilgrimage Event ended when the Levites of the Faithful Movement read Psalm 122 before the pilgrims and the thousands of Israelis who came to the Western Wall to be blessed by the chief rabbis of Israel. Psalm 122 recounts the anointed words spoken by the great King of Israel, King David. This Psalm was always read in the Holy Temple during the three annual Pilgrimage Festivals. Gershon called the people of Israel to prepare next year to receive the ‘priestly blessing’ of Passover week, not at the Western Wall, but rather on the Holy Temple Mount, the only place where G‑d commanded it to be given:
“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
