“Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” – Jesus (Luke 21:36)
Israel Housing Minister’s statement on the Temple Mount (9/4/2013) here. This was after the riots when the Muslims were attacking Jewish people for being on the mount. One of the worst examples of religious discrimination is how the Muslims treat Jews and Christians. They will not let us pray at one of our most holiest of places.
“Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.” – Paul (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6)
