UFO over Jerusalem

If you haven't seen it yet, here are the videos of the UFO recently seen over the Dome of the Rock.

Now, the Muslim Holy site is also the place of both the Jewish temples, the rock were Abraham offered up Isaac and some say the area of the Crucifixion of Christ. One could say it is the holiest place on Earth, at least to the Judeo Christian and Muslim tradition.

So why at this time is this visitor making such a spectacle?

Perhaps as some say, it is a divine sign that God is in control despite the chaos which is engulfing the Middle East and the world wide angst of what might happen.

Or if you are of the type that believes UFOs are visitors from the future, is it our future descendants getting one last look at this holiest of places before the unthinkable happens?

The Middle East is in turmoil. Change is coming. If the Muslim Brotherhood has its way, the entire region would be ruled by hard line Islamists who want to erase Israel from the face of the Earth.

We are all collectively holding our breaths, aren't we? Could this be the first bell to toll the end?

Another sign for those who believe in the 2012 predictions?

If you are a reader of my blog, you know that I am not a believer that the world will end on December 21 2012.

Given current events perhaps December 21 2012 is too late of a date for the end of the world...

Only the Father knows.

Pray for peace in the Middle East.

UDPATE 2/17/2011
Evidence is mounting that this is a hoax, though there still is some debate.
As for the world situation, at this time the turmoil in the Middle East rages on. Is this the beginnings of a new stage of history with a democratic Middle East? Or will religious extremism win out in the end? Only time will tell.

Until Next Time,

Pastor Swope

Religion - created by man to control man. Isn't it time we evolved and disregarded religious 'clubs' and became one world. The 1000 year war in the middle east started because of religious nutters and is maintianed by religious nutters today, pack it in, we want to live in peace, we no longer want or need religion.

Thanks Anonymous,

I do agree that there are a lot of religious 'nutters' out there, but there are a lot of secular ones as well. But I have to disagree, many people feel there is something more to life than just the physical world and many have found peace, truth and love by embracing their spiritual side. It has been so since the dawn of time. Marxism has such a point of view as yours and historically it has not quenched the thirst for spirituality by the human spirit, it has in fact furthered it. Just as man yearns for freedom, man yearns to be close to God.

The problem is that most people who ascent to a particular religion do not embrace it with their heart. Jesus came to bring peace on Earth, to show that we must love and care for our neighbor. anything contrary is not God or the religions fault. It is mans.

Interestingly enough the mayan legend never claimed that the date was the end of the world. They said the end of the world AS WE KNOW IT. those last 4 words make a world of a difference for the sentence. The end of the world would be just that, but the end of the world "as we know it" to me says change. its not going to be as we currently know it it will be different. people are taking the sentence and running away with it out of check. so I agree.

I don't believe in religion, in fact I denounce organized religion only for the sake of religious laws made by man. Just as Jesus did. I believe in a personal relationship with our Creator.

But if any fool thinks we can all "live in peace" and become "one world" , they must live in a bubble. Anyone with half a mind only has to turn on the T.V. and see what evil man does to others every second. How many murders, rapes, robberies, molestations, etc. happen everday without any ties to any "religion"?

Let's look at some of the worst human atrocities in the modern era : Hitler exterminated millions of Jews. He didn't do it for any religious purpose. Stalin killed millions in his communist purge, none in the name of religion.Pol Pot? Not a religious man, but millions were slain by his regime. Just wondering what Anonymous means? A worthless observation deserves anonymous ownership.
