Israeli News Outlets Reporting Secret Deal To Give Temple Mount To Vatican

| February 25, 2014

As far-fetched as it may seem to some, many sober-minded news outlets in Israel in the past week have been reporting the existence of a secret deal now being negotiated ahead of the Pope’s visit to Israel in May. If true, it would be the single biggest advancement of bible prophecy since May 14, 1948. Interesting side note, the Pope’s visit in May will coincide with the 66th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation again. Hmm, now that’s interesting…

From Israel Today: Israel could be entering the final stages of negotiations to turn over control of Mount Zion to the Vatican, if recent reports by Israel National News are to be believed. According to the online news source, a secretive meeting took place this week between the Jerusalem Municipality, Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Tourism and senior Catholic officials.

During the meeting, the Catholic delegation reportedly pressed Israel to follow through on a years-old proposal to give the Church control over the compound that houses the traditional “Hall of the Last Supper.”

The problem is that the same compound also houses the traditional “Tomb of David,” a holy site revered and frequented by religious Jews. Not to mention that Mount Zion is symbolic of Jerusalem as a whole, and surrendering it to the Vatican would be seen by many Israelis as a repudiation of Judaism’s claim to the city.

In response to reports regarding the negotiations, the Jerusalem Municipality released a statement insisting that it would remain “the central sovereign power on Mount Zion.” Others are not so sure, and believe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends to turn over control of Mount Zion prior to Pope Francis‘ visit to the Holy Land in May. source – Israel Today

  1. This just might be the push that Hamas, Hezbollah and the Syrian will used against Israel to start a confrontation with them ?

  2. Let the Holy Word of God be fulfilled as He has written. All Praise to the One Living Holy God of Israel.

  3. AJ says:

    This means get your soul right if you want NOT to stay here and endure the tribulation ! From the popes own words, islam prays to the SAME GOD as catholics… yep thats right, so the koran is his gods word also, the jesuits were the ones who brutally murdered thousands who would not convert to catholism in late 1300 and 1400, yep’ convert or die, same as islam, Now I worry about his letter to christian churches and their GLEEFUL acceptance of his lies, the delusion has started and all better watch carefully. LEARN history, do research, let not yourself be decieved, THIS IS NOT JOKE…..

  4. yes it could be forsure….

  5. What a bunch of rubbish. There is no way that the Israeli government would give the control of the Temple Mount to the Catholic church.

    Har Habayit as it’s called in Hebrew is the holiest site for the Jewish people and only fools believe Israel will relinquish control to the Pope.

    If you believe it then more fool you.

  6. krisnAsaro says:

    Jews have run the catholic church for a long time now, and have always headed the Jesuit church. You would be crazy in thinking he would ever hand the Temple Mount over to Christians, that’s for sure.

  7. ‘… D ROBBERS OF THY PEOPLE SHALL EXALT THEMSELVES 2 ESTABLISH D VISION: BT THEY SHALL FALL… WT D ARMS OF A FLOOD SHALL THEY BE OVERTHROWN 4M B4 HIM, N SHALL BE BROKEN: YEA, ALSO D PRINCE OF D COVENANT…': Treason!

    and the Temple Mount

    Op-Ed: 1964-2014: two Popes and the Temple Mount

    On January 5, 1964, Pope Paul VI made, for the first time in the history of the Papacy, a papal visit in Jerusalem. The Pope said in Megiddo, where he entered Israel, “We are coming as pilgrims, we come to venerate the Holy Places; we come to pray”.

    The Pope thanked unspecified “authorities” for arranging his visit and refused to address Zalman Shazar as “Mr. President”, avoiding any mention of that damned word: “Israel”. On his return to the Vatican, Paul sent a thank you note to “Mr. Shazar” in Tel Aviv”, not Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Israel. To exorcise the Israeli devil, they refuse to name it expressis verbis.

    Pope Paul VI spent only eleven hours in Israel. He avoided Israeli-controlled West Jerusalem, refusing to meet there with then Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Nissim. The rabbi therefore refused to attend the official welcome arranged in Megido. A few years later, Nissim attacked Pope Paul VI for his implied criticism of Israel’s reprisal raid on Beirut Airport and accused the Pope and the Vatican of conducting a “general campaign” against the Jewish religion and the Jewish people. The Chief Rabbi alleged that the Pope was not moved by the lives lost in the terrorist bombing of the Machane Yehuda market place in Jerusalem a month earlier, “but he hurried to console Lebanon after the destruction of a few planes without loss of life.”

    In 1964, when Pope Paul VI made the first papal visit to Jerusalem and the terror-organization PLO was formed by Arafat (not surprisingly, the Vatican was one of the first to recognize it), Jerusalem was divided by barbed-wire and snipers crouched on the roofs. Jews and Christians with Israeli passports were barred from entering the Old City.

    At that time, the Vatican ambassador’s residence at the foot of the Mount of Olives, provided a close look at the razing of over 40,000 Jewish graves in Judaism’s oldest cemetery and where, according to tradition, the resurrection of the dead on the Day of Judgment will happen.

    The Vatican never raised its voice to protest against the apartheid imposed by the Jordanian Muslims. Israeli leaders and rabbis asked the Vatican to use its “good offices” to intervene in order to stop the desecration, but during this dark period, the rape of Jewish Jerusalem did not lead to any expression of concern from Vatican diplomats.

    Another Pope, Francio, will visit Israel this spring to mark the 50th anniversary of Paul VI’s visit in 1964. And the battle is still on for the control of Mount Zion, near the very site of the two Holy Temples in Jerusalem.

    As in 1964 after the Machane Yehuda attack, the Vatican has remained silent during the last terrible trials for the Jewish people, when Evyatar Borovsky of Yitzhar was stabbed to death by a Palestinian Arab; when Sgt. Tomer Hazan of Bat Yam was murdered; when Sgt. Maj. Gal Kobi of Tirat Carmel was shot in the neck near Hevron’s Cave of Patriarchs; when Retired IDF Colonel Seraya Ofer was beaten to death outside his home and when Pvt. Eden Atias was stabbed to death on a bus.

    Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, a resident of the Old City of Jerusalem that he himself helped liberate in 1967 and the head of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem, has just given warning that there is a “terrible plan” to give away parts of the Old City to the Vatican and Islam.

    Meanwhile, it is possible that in the “peace agreement” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Jerusalem neighborhoods such as Maaleh HaZeitim and Shimon HaTzaddik will be under Arab-Muslim sovereignty. The includes the same cemetery vandalized under the Pope’s eyes in 1964.

    The alliance between the mosques and the Vatican will open the Jordan Vally border towards Jordan, permitting Islamic terrorists to flush into the Mountains of Zion.

    A LOT OF TALK ON THIS MOVIE, I DID NOT WATCH THE OTHER ONE THEY MADE FOR REASONS LISTED HERE, YOU MAY WANT TO READ

    Ohttp://thelasthiker.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/the-son-of-god-movie-is-not-what-we-think-do-you-know-the-voice-of-your-master/

  10. TERESAB: I UNDERSTAND VA ISSUEING NEW ID MEDICAL CARDS, I THOUGHT THE OLD TYPE WAS GOOD ENOUGH? AS IT SAYS I’M 100% SERVICE CONNECTED. WHICH MEAN NOTHING TO VAMC.

  11. PAUL: SOMETIMES WHEN A PERSON IS PUSHED INTO A CORNER AND THEIR NO WAY OUT THAT PERSON HAS TO MAKE HARD CHOICES THAT HE DOES NOT LIKE MAKING, WE KNOW RIGHT BEFORE THE SIGNING OF THE 7 YEAR PEACE TREATY WITH THE ANTICHRIST AND ISRAEL, ISRAEL WILL GIVE INTO GIVING UP MOST OF THEIR LAND TO HAVE THIS PEACE. AS YOU FOLLOW THE PROCESS OF THE POLITICANS IN THE ISRAEL GOVERNMENT ITS SPLIT DOWN THE MIDDLE, HALF WANT TO HOLD ON TO ALL OF ISRAEL FOR WHATEVER THE COST WILL BE, THE OTHER WILL DO WHATEVER TO HAVE PEACE, AND WE KNOW BY GOD’S SCRIPTURES THE LATTER WILL HAPPEN, GIVING UP LAND FOR PEACE.

    AS I BELIEVE THE POPE FRANCIS IS THE FALSE PROPHET, AND IN HIS DEALS WITH ISRAEL, THE VACTIAN WILL GET THE TEMPLE MOUNT, BECAUSE SATAN WILL SIT ON THE THRONE IN THE THIRD TEMPLE AT MID POINT OF THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION.

    POPE FRANCIS IN HIS HUMBLE WAY, WILL CONVINCE ISRAEL POWER MAKERS, THAT IT BETTER TO GO AS A UNIVERSAL RELIGION, SO ALL THE WORLD CAN BE AT PEACE.

  12. PAUL: LETS LOOK AT SARAH AND ABRAHAM. A ANGLE CAME TO SARAH TOLD HER SHE GOING HAVE A BABY, BUT SHE LAUGHED AT THE ANGEL, SHE SAID ITS IMPOSSIBLE FOR AN OLD WOMAN TO CONCIEVE A BABY. SO SARAH NOT HAVING PATIENCE, SHE GOT ABRAHAM TO HAVE SEX WITH HER MISTRESS HAGAR, AND ISHMEAL WAS BORN, BUT SARAH FINALLY DID HAVE THAT BABY GOD PROMISED HER.

    ISRAEL WILL DO THE SAME THING AS THEIR PATIENCE GROWS THIN WAITING FOR PEACE, THEY WILL FINDLY GIVE INTO THE IDEA, GIVE UP THEIR LAND FOR PEACE. AND THE VACTIAN WILL GET THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

    WHY DO I SAY THIS? ISRAEL WILL TAKE OUT DAMASCUS AND IRAN MILITARY AND PARTIAL NUCLEAR FACILITIES, BUT OBAMA AND THE WORLD LEADERS WILL BE AGAINST ISRAEL, THEY WILL FEEL THEIR ALONE, NO ONE TO HELP THEM ANYMORE?

    SO THEY WILL FEEL THEY NEED TO MAKE SOME HARD CHOICES IN LIFE TO HAVE PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND ISRAEL.

  13. Nancy says:

    @#7 Asaro Obviously you do not know anything about Jesuits or the Vatican! The most idiotic statement I have read in decades!!!!

  14. Ken Milby says:

    My friends please do not cut down others opinions. We are all human and in the end our opinions will matter not ! Jesus Christ is Lord and his “Will” will be done !

  15. NANCY: ANSWER THIS FOR ME?

    THE “COUNCIL OF TRENT” CATHOLICS CONDEMNED TO HELL ANYONE THAT BELIEVES IN ” SALVATION THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS ALONE.” YES?

    “IF ANYONE SAITH, THAT BY FAITH ALONE THE IMPIOUS IS JUSTIFIED, IN SUCH WISE AS TO MEAN, THAT NOTHING ELSE IS REQUIRED TO CO-OPERATE IN ORDER TO THE IBTAINING THE GRACE OF JUSYIFICATION, AND THAT IT IS NOT IN ANY WAY NECESSARY THAT HE/SHE BE PREPARED AND DISPOSED BY THE MOVEMENT OF HIS/HER WILL, LET HIM BE ANATHEMA.”

    ( COUNCIL OF TRENT, CANONS ON JUSTIFICATION, CANON 9)

    ANATHEMA ACCORDING TO THE CATHOLIC POPE THEOLOGY MEANS “EXCOMMUNICATION.”

    THE EXCLUSION OF A SINNER FROM THE SOCIETY OF THE FAITHFUL.

    NOW, WE WILL LOOK AT GOD’S SCRIPTURES TO FIND THE TRUE MEANING OF JUSTICATION.

    THOSE WHO ARE JUSTIFIED ARE SAVED AND SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT FROM GOD ( ROMANS 6:23 ) AND SOMETHING CAN NOT BE EARNED ( EPH. 2: 1-10) VERSE 8-9: FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. NOT AS A RESULT OF WORKS, THAT NO ONE SHOULD BOAST.

    SO NOW DO YOU THINK THIS IS IDIOTIC STATEMENTS?

  16. OOPS: IBTAINING= OBTAINING
    JUSYIFICATION= JUSTIFICATION

  17. TeresaB says:

    STL, I don’t know about the cards maybe there is a siniter motive! Mom did not say anything, will ask her. Ours may be different because of Ret.? Hers is diff than ours as she was in WW11 . Take care

    “AS I BELIEVE THE POPE FRANCIS IS THE FALSE PROPHET”

    @STL: If the Pope is the false prophet, would it also not be logical that the Antichrist is on the stage also? After all, according to scripture, they form a duo in the end. Also I do believe that the Antichrist reigns first (tribulation), the false prophets reigns second (wrath). And again, according to scripture, the tribulation is nothing more nor less than persecution. And according to scripture, Satan’s wrath precedes Gods wrath. But we can argue endlessly on things, as of yet there is no absolute proof on anything, just whatever speculations emerge :-(

  21. The Vatican is attempting to get control a portion of Mount Zion NOT the Temple Mount. There is a big difference between the two.

  22. Abia says:

    I am just genuinely puzzled on the selection of a matric or CBSE. Still not sure which one to select, would it be good to go for CBSE or Matric, please comment, though i need to put my son in school.

  23. MRH: the False Prophet will be acting in the same manner as Elijah will do for the Messiah. And elijah appears at mid-point of the Tribulation, as the Lord Jesus appear in the 2nd Coming, which is at the end of the Tribulation, yes or no?

  24. megeri says:

    I don’t know why it is so hard to believe any part of Israel could fall to a foreign government or municipality, when Israel has been under other governments many times throughout history, and returned to their land afterward, when they brought themselves back to YHVH. Yes, I agree, we need to take the messages of the prophets seriously, and imho we are getting very close to the end. Having said that, I do believe we are seeing prophesy fulfilled more and more everyday. It is truly time to get right with our Creator, and quit arguing about whether we think this is possible or not. Believers in the scriptures already know it’s more than possible, it will happen.

  25. MRH says:

    @STL: We don’t yet know the prophetic score, all we have are varied clues into prophecy, which guide our understanding. But even so, not all can see through the prophetic window, only those whom have x-ray vision :-)

  26. TeresaB says:

    STL, ?? on the VA stuff, will ask my Mom, thank you

  27. Progers says:

    Steve: your comments were intriguing as I have wondered how Isreal would give up the Temple Mount peaceably. What are you talking about in regards to Elijah being here during the Trib? Where in Scripture is that? Are you talking about the Two Witnesses? Thanks.

  28. Don’t do it Israel, don’t give anything to the Roman Catholic Church. Please don’t, it is not in your best interests to deal with them in any way.

  29. Name Nancy says:

    Several years ago Barry Chamish did a dvd on this very subject. He said that Shimon Peres (who by the way was educated in Poland by the Jesuits) had promised parts of Jerusalem to the then pope JPII. Get in touch with him at Chamishba@gmail.com and ask for the dvd in English. The dvd goes all the way back to Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire .

  30. Frankie La Flare says:

    this all boils down to 'do unto others' would Israel want to be treated as they treat the Palestinians ?
