In Part One of this series, we once again witnessed the continuing quest of a few of the religious Zealots who like their ancestors of old, sought to return Judaism to the life of their ancient forefathers of old. If only, they believe from the depths of their hearts, that if Torah observant Jews fulfilled the exact precepts of Torah law including the sacrificing of the Korban lamb upon the Temple Mount, their hopes and dreams would precipitate the coming of the Maschiah ben Dovid (Messiah son of David).
So we ask; is the Zionist State of Israel part of the social profane, or the sacred? If we truly believe that the G-d of Israel is the Sovereign G-d of the Universe, then we also will believe that He alone is stirring up the nations to the final fulfillment of prophecy that a future Messianic Age will come.
Can we then believe that the words spoken by the G-d of Israel spoke through the pen of the Prophet Zechariah to the Jews that returned back to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity also have a meaning to not only to the Jewish people today but also to the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel?
Zechariah 1:3-6 – “Thus said HaShem, Master of Legions: ‘Return to Me – the word of HaShem, Master of Legions – and I will return unto you…Do not be like your fathers, to whom the prophets of old, called out, saying…Return now, from your evil ways and from your evil deeds, ‘but they did not listen nor pay attentions to Me…
Your forefathers, where are they? And as for the prophets, could they live forever? However, My words and My decrees, which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not befall your fathers? They repented and said, ‘Just as HaShem Master of Legions, thought to do to us, according to our ways and our deeds, so did He with us.’”
Within the Prophetic Book of Zechariah G-d left behind a message to us today, in the transliteration of the Prophet Zechariah’s name in Hebrew: Zekaryah ben Berechiah ben Iddo (Zechariah son of Berechiah grandson of Iddo). So we also learn, according to the traditions of the Hebrews, the names of the authors in the prophetic book of the TaNaKh have a special significance. In this prophetic book written for our end times, we see the following meaning of Zechariah unfold:
Zechariah (Zekaryah) is known as “HaShem remembers”, or “HaShem has remembered.”
Berechiah, the meaning of the name of the father of Zechariah is: “G-d blesses”
Iddo, the meaning of the name of the grandfather of Zechariah was: “At the appointed time”.
So the end-time message is: “G-d remembers and God blesses at the appointed Time”
As Hebrew is translated from right to left, then, we might also consider that the following meaning of Zechariah’s name spoken in reverse also means:
“At the Appointed Time, G-d blesses and G-d remembers”
Can we begin to comprehend that HaShem, the G-d of Israel is the planetary conductor and He and He alone is conducting the final orchestration of world events as they are cascading around our lives. This Passover, no doubt will be looked back upon in eternity as one of the most pivotal periods of world’s history.
So today, we are witnessing prophecy in fulfillment. Jewish organizers of the Sacrifice of the Korban Lamb/Goat rehearsal that was now denied by the Israeli Veterinary Society, took a petition to the Jewish court in Jerusalem. There they received a ruling that gave permission for the Passover ritual of the sacrificing of the lamb or goat to continue. You may witness this event below.
The Jewish Passover sacrificial ritual continued. It was presided over by Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who, earlier had his Korban goat “arrested” and later slaughtered by the command of the Israeli Agricultural Minister at the Wildlife Supervision Department. Rabbi Yehuda Glick later described that this riveting ritual was carried out with the greatest of care for its biblical accuracy. As he described:
Rabbi Yehuda Glick – “We took the goat, as the Torah commands, we had an altar built like the real one, and a cooking pit built according to halakhah (Jewish Torah Law) We slaughtered the goat with Leviim singing and priestly clothing, just like in the real Passover sacrifice. The ritual was emotionally moving. The symbolism of standing opposite the Temple Mount and preparing for the real Passover sacrifice – it was without doubt a special moment.”
Today, Rabbi Yehuda Glick is the founder of the organization called “The Movement for the Establishment of the Temple”. According to Rabbi Glick, the Jewish people have become “psychologically connected, over the centuries, to the Western Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem because the rebuilding of the temple seems like an impossible task.” It was only 25 years ago they the Jewish people actually started ascending upon the Temple Mount. First it was small groups but now hundreds of Jews and Christians are now going up upon the Temple. Yet, recently the Jewish people once again been discriminated against and not allowed to ascend to the Temple Mount while Christians and Muslim are still allowed. So who is this Movement for the Establishment of the Temple that is gaining so much public attention?
Glick’s temple mount movement was discussed a decade ago in the 2003 abstract by Motti Imbari and published in the Hebrew Union Annual with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem titled “The Oslo Accords and the Temple Mount a case study : The Movement for the Establishment of the Temple”. In the introduction to his 45 page abstract, it stated the following:
Motti Inbari – “This article discusses the internal world of the Movement for the Establishment of the Temple, a small and unique group within modern-day ultra-Orthodox circles in Israel. This group seeks to achieve a religious revolution within Israeli Orthodoxy through its demand to rebuild the Temple and to abolish the grave halakhic prohibition against entering the Temple Mount area. The movement argues that Orthodox passivity on this issue is due to a theological error, and accordingly it offers an alternative historiographic and theological approach.
The article discusses in detail the manner in which this group has attempted to achieve religious change and to address the dilemmas raised by this demand. It also discusses the manner in which the group acts to encourage messianic activism within traditionalist Orthodox circles.
This discussion may provide valuable information regarding the behavior of modern-day ultra-Orthodox society. The article describes the theological crisis provoked in certain Orthodox Zionist circles by the Oslo process, which was based on a territorial compromise between the State of Israel and the Palestinians in the Land of Israel, and explains why this crisis enabled the movement's ideas to penetrate growing circles within the rabbinical leadership of Gush Emunim.
This Temple Mount Movement understandably has caused great dissension among the Islamic people, who believe that the Temple Mount is holy only to the Muslim people. Yet, Rabbi Glick is now calling on all the Jewish people to unite and make every effort to go to this sacred site and focus their prayers upon the rebuilding of the next temple in Jerusalem.
In fact, it was back April, 2011, that Glick claimed that the Children of Israel were commanded “in perpetuity” to sacrifice a lamb or a goat on each anniversary of the Exodus. Even though the current belief that without the temple, that was last destroyed less than 2,000 years ago, in the days of the Exodus, there was not a temple. The first Passover (Pesach) was conducted by every Israelite family, and according to Glick, so they should be doing so today.
Back in 2011, Rabbi Glick, along with several influential rabbis, as written in The Jewish Daily Forwards in the article titled, “300 Goats and Sheep, 20 Slaughterers, One Willful Rabbi”, we learned that Rabbi Yehuda Glick contracted Jewish farmers to provide him with 300 sheep and goats for a sacrifice, should the Messiah come. Also, there were 20 Jewish slaughterers on stand-by. This event was written about on Destination Yisrael in the article titled, “Will the Sacrifice of the Pesach Lamb be reinstituted in Jerusalem in 2011?”
For those who wanted to “share”, that is one ounce of lamb or goat meat, prepared according to the halakhic command of a sacrificial animal, they were invited to purchase it by phone, and a credit card for 12 shekels which was about $3.00. By the eve of Pesach over 3,000 people had signed up.
The official inauguration of the sacrificial ritual is, according to Rabbi Glick, the next step to the actual fulfillment of biblical prophecy. At that time the work of the Temple Mount Faithful will become fulfilled. According to the Temple Mount Faithful, all the implements that are needed to be used in a new temple have been made. This included the knowledge of where the site of the new Jewish Temple is to be built upon the Temple Mount.
The Great Golden Menorah to be used in the next Jewish Temple has been built and housed in a glass protective casing for the visiting public to inspect. Also all of the 28,000 priests needed to conduct the sacrifices in the next Jewish temple have been trained. Their priestly garments are now ready to be used.
Now, according to Rabbi Glick, it is time for the Jewish people to become accustomed to “ascending the Temple Mount” and now only to learn how to pray but to become involved as participants in the future Temple services. As such Rabbi Yehuda Glick has now proclaimed; “There should be no more prayers at the Western Wall, but instead, let’s go up to the Temple Mount.”
This movement recently was accelerated by the recent temple mount ascending by the Israeli Knesset MK, Moshe Feiglin when he a minyan of Orthodox Jews did go to the Temple Mount and prayed. Feiglin’s experience on the Temple Mount and the multiple arrests that he had experienced was emphasized by the later visit by former Labor MK Daniel Ben-Simon when witnessing the discrimination of the Jewish people that were seeking to visit the Temple Mount, cut his visit short.
Rabbi Karro – “Eliyahu welcoming the Moschiah and His Merkabah”
Let us return to the famous rabbinic prophecies of Rabbi Yochanan ben Zaccai of Yavnah in which he proclaimed about the last Seven Sabbatical years before the coming of the messiah:
Sanhedrin 97a – “Rebi Yochanan said: In the generation that Ben Dovid will come, talmidei chachamim, the “pupil of wisdom” known as the Torah sage or scholar, will decrease, and the eyes of the remainder will protrude from sighing and sorrow; many chastisements and many evil decrees will be renewed; one will not cease before another begins.”
Let us now look at the final four years in this collections of passages in the Talmud in Sanhedrin 97a, as was given by the famous Jewish sage, Rabbi Yochanan ben Zaccai:
According to Rabbi Yochanan ben Zaccai, these immediate future days over the next 3½ years are part of HaShem’s vision for our future life. Here was Rabbi Yochana’s vision of the final four years that began with the Last Sabbatical Week of Years on Rosh Hashanah 2008. Here is how he envisioned what will happen in the Land of Israel in the final four years as the world is sinking into the economic abyss, it’s affect upon the Land of Israel that will begin to improve in the year of 2013, and the contagiousness about the coming of the Messiah will become serious in the Jewish population by the years of 2014 to 2015.
Talmud Sanhedrin 97a – “In the fourth year (2013), some will be satiated while others are not,
In the fifth year (2014), there will be plenty and people will eat, drink, and be joyous, and the Torah will return to those who learned it.
In the sixth year (2015), there will be voices which according to Rashi depict either the blowing of the shofars (war) or the hints and voices about the coming of the messiah.
In the seventh year (2016), there will be war (GogUMogog War or Armageddon).”
When we add “Rabbi Judah ben Samuel’s Jubilee Prophecy gives the Year of the Messiah”, we learn the following as the Last Seven Sabbatical Week of Years dovetails with the Last Jubilee of mankind before the revealing of the Maschiah ben Dovid:
Rabbi Judah heHasid – “In the ninth jubilee (1967-2917) Jerusalem will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which will signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
As Destination Yisrael wrote:
Destination Yisrael - “This leaves one more Jubilee, the tenth Jubilee since the Ottoman Turks took control of Jerusalem and the Land of Promise in the years of 1517. According to this Jewish sage, the end of this tenth Jubilee will “signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
As we review the Sabbatical Week of Years, this present Sabbatical Cycle began on Rosh Hashanah 2008 5778. The 8th year would have been the day of the Messiah ending Rosh Hashanah 2009, but the Messiah did not come.
If this Sabbatical Messianic cycle 2009-2017 is completed and the GogUMogog war does begin within the year between Rosh Hashanah 2015 to Rosh Hashanah 2016, then the Messianic Era will commence before Rosh Hashanah 2017. We are currently in the 4th year of the Sabbatical Messianic Cycle that began on Rosh Hashanah 2009, now in the Jewish year 5773 (2013).
There is still time for the Messiah the Prince, the anti-Messiah to forge a covenant with the “Holy Ones” of the rabbanim of Jerusalem for a seven year hudna, for the biblical text in Daniel clearly states that it will be abrogated by the anti-Messiah within 3½ years.
Can we look forward to a Middle East Peace Accord by Passover 2013? If so, 3½ years later, will be see the revealing of the Maschiach ben Dovid before Rosh Hashanah 2016 (Jewish year 5777 between Rosh Hashanahs 5776-7)?
If so, the Epic Year of the Messiah will be here on Rosh Hashanah 2016 or the Jewish year of 5000 plus 777 years. The age of the Enlightenment of the Torah will have begun. The forces of evil will have been destroyed and the Kingdom of G-d on Planet Earth will begin with the Maschiach ben Dovid ruling with the “rod of iron”.
The day will soon be here when the HaShem, the G-d of Israel will open the gates of the supernal heavens, and at that time, no man or any group will be able to stop the final prophetic river from flowing towards the mighty waterfall that will cascade us into the Age of the Messiah.

The Exodus and the Pesach Festival are an indelible link of the ancient Israelites to the modern Jewish people. Even the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel who are predominately worshipping in Christian Churches today, worship the Passover in a corrupted festival of Easter initiated by the First Church of Rome in the 3rd century CE. Yet, there is still real spiritual imagery that if taken back to their Hebrew-Judaic roots could become the pathway of the Lost Christian Israelites to be reunited back with their Jewish brothers of the House of Judah.
To understand more about the Return of the Lost 10 Tribes of Israel to their Homeland in Israel, Contact “Kol Ha Tor”, the Voice of the Turtledove. Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Vision destined to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail Establishing the Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness as part of the Land of Israel, and preparing the “Land” for the Return of the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel and then the Redemption of All Israel.
