This ad promoting tourism in Jerusalem was banned from official release before it was ever released and is only available on Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon’s YouTube channel because it offends Palestinians.
Yes, the Word of God offends!
“…so that he [the antichrist] takes his seat in the Temple of God, displaying himself as being God”
2 Thessalonians 2:4
People may refuse to hear and believe the truth, but the fact still remains: God made a covenant with Abraham that Israel will forever belong to the Jews. Throughout history, Jerusalem has indeed belonged to the Jewish people, and one day, the Third Temple will stand on the Temple Mount! Will the Dome of the Rock be destroyed, or will they stand side by side? Only God knows that answer definitively, as prophecy scholars differ in their interpretations of Scripture.
“Am I now your enemy, just because I told you the truth?”
In Genesis 12:1-3, God promised the land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants. In Genesis 17:7-8 God confirms this covenant- “all the land of Canaan.” In Genesis 22:16-18 God promises Abraham the Land will belong to Israel despite opposition and threat. Genesis 26:3-5 is the confirmation of the covenant with Isaac. Genesis 28:13, 14 is the confirmation and extension of the promise to Jacob again. In Genesis 35:9-15, God appears to Jacob again [see 35:1] at Bethel, and changes his name to Israel. He confirms the promise to him and his descendants. God’s promise to Abraham was that the land of Israel- all of the land of Canaan- belongs to the Jews “forever and ever” (Additional Scripture references and detailed history can be found here.)
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, displays in a new video the magic of Jerusalem as a city that combines diversity with harmony, modernity with history, and as a sacred city that for the first time in history, under Israeli sovereignty, Jews, Christians, Muslims, secular, religious, young and old are living side by side. In addition, the video shows the unbreakable bond between the Jewish people and Jerusalem.
