Closing Out Tisha B’Av: What is it, and Why?

As of sundown last night, Jews commemorate Tisha B’Av, perhaps the most tragic date on the Hebrew calendar. Many horrible events, including the destruction of both the First and Second Temples, happened on this calendar day in history.

One for Israel explains this national day of fasting and mourning:

To this day, no temple stands on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But one day, a third temple will be erected. Though very much anticipated by the Jews, that temple will be far from what they long for. The tribulation will usher in a “peacemaker” and, unfortunately, they will be duped into entering a peace treaty with that peacemaker, the Antichrist. In the midst of the 7-year peace agreement, the Antichrist will enter the Temple in power and demand to be worshipped.

A look back, a look ahead. How close are we to the fulfillment of the Jewish dream for a rebuilt temple? Perhaps closer than we think! But be of good cheer, believers. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will redeem us from this world (rapture) prior to the tribulation.
