Re: The return of the Holy Temple Menorah, Vessels and Treasures to Jerusalem
Pope Benedict XVI:

As you well know, in the year 70 ce the Roman Empire occupied Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G‑d and People of Israel, and the Land of Israel. They destroyed the Holy Temple of the G‑d of Israel on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem and demolished and burned the city of Jerusalem. They robbed and took away with them to Rome the seven-branched Holy Menorah and many other Holy Temple Vessels and Treasures used by the Jewish priesthood in the worship of the G‑d of Israel in the Holy Temple.

We look forward to you answering this call of the G‑d and People of Israel with no delay and to return the Holy Menorah, Vessels and Treasures of the Holy Temple of the G‑d of Israel, that are presently in the Vatican, back to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G‑d and People of Israel, so that they can be used in the services of the priests of Israel in the Holy Third Temple that is soon to be rebuilt on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The entire world is waiting for you to answer this call of the G‑d and People of Israel with no delay. All of mankind will appreciate this historical event.

We look forward to your prompt reply.

Sincerely in the Name of the G‑d of Israel,

Gershon Salomon

My comment:

There is a lot to say about the theft of the “holy items” of the second temple in Jerusalem.

First and foremost, the Religious Jews must answer:

1. How could God of Israel be defeated in such a way?

Why was a supposed to be omnipotent God, not able to protect His own temple?

2. Is the Roman Emperor more powerful than God?

By accepting that the Romans took the “holy items”, the Jews accept defeat. Not only were the pagans more powerful than the chosen people of God. The Roman Emperor “god” seems to be more powerful than God of the Hebrews.

The truth is painful for all rebellious Jews. You did not accept the author of life, the Messiah Jesus of Nazareth.  He told His own people. “My body is true temple”.

 John 2:19-22

 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”

 20 The Jews replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body. 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

The Messiah also ordered the Jews to accept His Kingship, and bring the good news to the end of the World.

The majority of the Jews rejected Him. When the priestly mission of the Messiah was fulfilled, them temple curtain was thorn into two. God of the Hebrews were no longer contained to a building made by human hands.

 Acts 17:24
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.

The blood of Jesus has forever replaced the temple sacrifices of blood of lambs, bulls and pigeons.  Man can only be saved by the blood of the Lamb of God.

If you can not accept this, you will die in your sins and perish. Both Jews and gentiles alike.

Jesus the Messiah is alive. He is the Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings. Amen.

  1. You all are awesome!!! The Catholic Church definitly should return what they stold. The also have no claim on Jerusalem. G_d did not kick the Jews to the curb. The Jewish people did not kill Jesus/ Yeshua. He gave his life, which is one reason he came.
    The Catholics do not include anything Jewish in there messages and and church.

  2. Morning Ivar, YESHUA /JESUS also prophesied that the temple building itself would be totally destroyed and that the Jewish nation would be scattered worldwide.
    The destruction of the temple and scattering of the Jews in 70 AD fulfills YESHUA’S / JESUS’S own prophecy to HIS people….
    Yet what most people do not understand that even in doing so, YWHW was still actually protecting HIS chosen people..
    By scattering them YWHW protected them from being totally wiped out over the centuries to come. By the grace of YWHW, different branches of my own family came out from various parts of Europe and UK, my husband’s families from Germany and Prussia, and by the LORD laying it on the hearts of our different great-great grandparents and even further back HE saved our great grandparents etc from the Holocaust that was to come. Unfortunately most of my family or rather relatives [cousins and their families] do not know of their Jewish birthright /ancestry and some of them who have heard ”whispered rumours” of Jewish blood, adamantly refuse to acknowledge it, It was through research and asking our maternal grandmother and great Aunt that my sister and l were eventually able to find out the truth and then we discovered that our paternal grandfather was also as Jewish as they come, he looked so Jewish that Jews who met him in the course of his work spoke to him in Yiddish, but Granddad died without knowing of his Jewish bloodline. My maternal grandfather died as a born again Christian but not knowing that he was in fact a Messianic Jew, my grandmother died knowing it, as she was the one who was able to give us the initial info that clarified the ”rumours”, the hush hush words that had been circulating for decades that we were of Jewish descent, Today my sister, brother and l and our families openly acknowledge our ancestry and my husband’s side has always acknowledged their ancestry.
    His great grandfather was a Rabbi. and his great-grandmother was Jewish, and their daughter was my husband’s paternal grandmother.
    In due course YWHW will and is already bringing many of HIS people together in the different countries that they are living in, In the past 3 years HE has brought together as close friends a whole group of us who are Messianic Jews and in the past month l discovered that my closest and most loved of my friends who is also a born again, water baptized and Holy Spirit filled child of YWHW is also a Jewess, she also only discovered that fact in recent years.

      My comment:

      The scattering of Jews in 70 A.D have many interesting Biblical perspectives.

      1. This fulfilled the prophecies of an exile to all nations. The Jews was not exiled because they were righteous. Neither were they regathered in 1947 onwards, because of their righteousness.

      2. The Messiah told the Jews to go to the end of the World, and tell that the Messiah had fulfilled the Torah in Jerusalem. The majority refused to accept Him and the Mission. Anyhow: The Messiah made them “go” to the end of the World. Many Jews accepted Him living in the diaspora.

      3. It is true that Satan has an easier task to destroy the Jews, when the Jewish nation is weak, and the Jewish people divided. Do we see that in Israel today, in 2012?

      4. The Jews were protected in the diaspora by friendly kings. When the King turned unfriendly, they had to pack up and leave. The history of the World is also, very much, abut how the gentiles handled the Jewish people in the diaspora. Did you harm the Jew, or did you bless Him? Many people have failed the test, and do fail this test today.

      Genesis 12:3
      “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

      1. Hi Ivar,

        Yes—I believe that one of the criteria for clemency at the “sheep and goat” judgment (unlike some evangelicals, I do not believe that it will be a “kangaroo court”) will be how well those people treated the Jewish people.

        By the way, Ivar, my old laptop fizzled out and took your email address with it unfortunately. Could you email it to me?



  3. Matthew 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

    Matthew 27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

    Matthew 27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

    Matthew 27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

    Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but [that] rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed [his] hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

    Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

  4. Hi Ivar,
    I don’t think that the stolen items have any bearing on the strength of G’d. The temple being destroyed was the fulfillment of prophecy. G’d’s Shekinah glory had already left the temple. The power isn’t in the items, they are just copies of the real objects, which are in heaven. No matter where these items are, the G’d of Israel is in control of their whereabouts, and He is the real custodian of these sacred objects.

    1. Still, it is unthinkable that the RCC would continue to hold those artifacts that rightly belong to the Jewish people. They should have been returned as soon as Israel became a nation again. The leadership of the RCC has been very culpable in relation to the Jewish people.

      1. Honestly, I really don’t know much about catholics. What I do know is that the catholic church was complicit in the killing of the jews durring the holocaust. And now the pope is in league with the muslims. The catholic church has always hated Jacob’s children. Why would the church do anything decent?

    2. Just a quick thought…No one really wants anything of The Lord, to be in the hands of Dagon, or any other god of the enemies of Israel, whether it be a copy of what is in Heaven or to His Glory here on Earth, though we know HE will flip them over on their heads broken in pieces just like HE did before..what a wonderful Story that is !!

  5. Hello Ivar and blessings for you, I read your page on a daily basis as you post several news viewed from the eyes of the believers in the Lord Jesus. Today I’ve found something that hit me like a bowling ball right on my face and thought you might want to look at it. The EU leaders are making the plans to elect the Anti-Crist. You can read the news here:

    We must stand firm and ask Jesus to give us strength to remain faithful because He will come very soon with Power and Great Glory.

    Shalom, blessings for everyone and special blessings, prosperity and peace for the people of Israel

  6. Hi Denise,

    All who are real Christians support the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. I believe the Holy Spirit moves in a believer to cause them to have a special love for the Jewish people (and we know from Romans 8:9 that those who are not indwelt by the Spirit of God are not real Christians). The RCC has, for centuries, dismissed the Jewish people as being important to God’s ultimate plan for humanity. Official RCC doctrine has it that the RCC has replaced the Jewish people in the economy of God. This has led to much perfidy against the Jewish people down through the centuries. The worst direct persecution of them by the RCC was during the Inquisition. But, during WWII, the Vatican failed to stand up for the Jews (even though a number of Catholic priests lost their lives defending Jews). The RCC has not been alone in their betrayal of the Chosen People. Martin Luther made some notorious anti-Semitic comments near the end of his life and the Nazis used those comments in their propaganda against the Jews before they started active persecution. There were a number of real Christians in Europe who lost their lives defending the Jews who were being hunted down. The family of a Dutch woman, named Corrie Ten Boom, hid Jews from the Nazis. She and her father and sister were caught and sent to one of the concentration camps where her sister, Betsy died. I believe her father died there as well. Corrie survived and her book, “The Hiding Place” is a Christian classic.

    1. I know of Corrie Ten Boom, I’ve read her book too. Love her!
      I had all sons, and then my first two granchildren were boys as well. Finally, I was blessed with two granddaughters. There is a new book out by Brad Meltzer, called, Heros for My Daughter. My son Joel is getting a copy of this book for his daughters. At the very back of the book there are a couple of blank pages where the girls put a picture of a woman who is a hero to them, then they write about that person, Corrie Ten Boom is under cinsideration for that honor.

  7. Hi!My elder brothers and sisters(Jewish People)don’t worry about the holy vessels and other things which church has, which was from king Solomon’s temple for God.We (Catholic) share the same faith that the Messiah will com.Of course you don’t believe Jesus is Messiah,but you are waiting for Messiah and we are waiting for second coming of Messiah.And church may give assistance to built the third and the final temple,the temple which church too believes to build before the END TIME.SO don’t worry what ever the vessels and the holy things church has,that’s yours!The only thing I think is that church is keeping thus holy things for safety.So don’t worry,Might the third temple bring christian and Jews in the same temple to pray in,and church might use that holy things in the third temple.
    With Shalom to my Jewish Brothers and Sister.
    Your’s Lovingly,

  8. Ivar Said: “The blood of Jesus has forever replaced the temple sacrifices of blood of lambs, bulls and pigeons. Man can only be saved by the blood of the Lamb of God.”

    My reply: “Amen!”

    The Temple Institute just announced plans for the Third Temple have begun just a few days ago on the 9th of Av.

    This satanic temple is being financed by the Rothschild’s, Freemasons and Jesuits in anticipation of the Antichrist. This temple is blasphemy to a Holy God and will once again begin animal sacrifices that Jesus Christ put an end to ONCE AND FOR ALL on the cross.

    The Bible tells us that the blood of bulls and goats will not take away sins and the Book of Hebrews tells us that Christ came to permanently abolish temple worship and animal sacrifices.

    This is not Ezekiel’s future temple and there will never be a future Ezekiel’s temple.

    Animal sacrifices WILL NOT START UP AGAIN in the Millennium as that would be despising the blood of Christ and sinning against the Holy Spirit.

    The confusion about Ezekiel’s Temple being a future temple with animal sacrifices is a faulty interpretation of Scripture. If these end chapters of Ezekiel are studied carefully, it becomes clear.

    Ezekiel’s Temple was something that should have been built by the Jews when they returned from the Babylonian captivity. Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi record the failure of the Jews to do this and warned them to repent and build the temple. But the people of Israel were unable to carry the project through to its culmination.

    There will never be an Ezekiel’s Temple. Countless passages in the New Testament prove this.

    “What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people” (2 Cor 6:16)

    “For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come” (2 Cor. chapter 5).


    Steven Ben Denoon explain all of this in his best video yet:

    He talks about the horror of animal sacrifices and how some “messianic congregations ” such as Mark Biltz’s are wrongly praying for this Third Temple to be built and for the animal sacrifices to start again. The Scriptures that Mr. Denoon sites against this are compelling.

    “Third Temple Plans Begun – Two Witnesses Soon To Come”

  9. What is of the earth will pass,Animal sacrifice was finished with when GOD gave his son/self as the final sacrifice,hence the new covenant. Why would he start requiring animal sacrifice again?what purpose would it hold when the end has come and heavens gate has opened,do you think GOD wants his kingdom awash with blood,

  10. I would always have my mum at me when i got older,about not going to ‘GODS HOLY HOUSE’,MY RESPONSE IM NOT DEAD MUM,a church is a man made structure and God does not dwell there,a temple is a man made structure,and GOD does not dwell there GOD dwells in the heart mind and hopefully the soul.The third temple is GODS kingdom not a man made structure.

    1. Dear Rommgirl,

      Yes and amen to both of your comments!

      Isaiah 66:3 talks about how temple worship and animal sacrifices are an abomination to God. The misinterpretation of Ezekiel’s future temple where animal sacrifices will start again in the millennium goes against the entire Gospel message.

      “Whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a person, and whoever offers a lamb is like one who breaks a dog’s neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood, and whoever burns memorial incense is like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and they delight in their abominations.”

      Matthew Henry’s commentary says about this passage:

      “The Jews gloried much in their temple. But what satisfaction can the Eternal Mind take in a house made with men’s hands? God has a heaven and an earth of his own making, and temples of man’s making; but he overlooks them, that he may look with favour to him who is poor in spirit and serious, self-abasing and self-denying; whose heart truly sorrows for sin: such a heart is a living temple for God.

      “The sacrifice of the wicked is not only unacceptable, but a great offence to God.

      “And he that now offers a sacrifice after the law, does in effect set aside Christ’s sacrifice.

      “He that burns incense, puts contempt upon the incense of Christ’s intercession, and is as if he blessed an idol.

      “Men shall be deceived by the vain confidences with which they deceive themselves.

      “Unbelieving hearts, and unpurified consciences, need no more to make them miserable, than to have their own fears brought upon them. Whatever men put in the place of the priesthood, atonement, and intercession of Christ, will be found hateful to God.”

      Animal sacrifices were only types and shadows that culminated in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Only His blood was adequate for remission of sins.

      “This is my blood of the New Covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28).
