Concerning Jerusalem

In 1803 Nathaniel Conklin, friend of historian Silas Wood, decided to call his property in South Huntington New Babylon, thus writing the latter on the forehead of the Great City.

In 2003 president George W. Bush decided to hand over political control of Iraq to the Shiite majority, thus preparing the way for the Kings of the East.

In 2017 president Donald J. Trump determined that it is now the right time to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, thus making sure that U.S. security personal will henceforth tread the Holy City under foot.

By the way, there is a horrific translation error in Revelation 11:1. King James' version says:
And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
In truth however Revelation 11:1 reads:
Καὶ ἐδόθη μοι κάλαμος ὅμοιος ῥάβδῳ, λέγων, Ἔγειρε καὶ μέτρησον τὸν ναὸν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ τοὺς προσκυνοῦντας ἐν αὐτῷ.
and γειρε doesn't mean rise, it means raise:
Raise and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
and likewise Revelation 11:2 doesn't read:
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
but:
καὶ τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἔξωθεν τοῦ ναοῦ ἔκβαλε ἔξωθεν καὶ μὴ αὐτὴν μετρήσῃς, ὅτι ἐδόθη τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, καὶ τὴν πόλιν τὴν ἁγίαν πατήσουσιν μῆνας τεσσεράκοντα [καὶ] δύο.
which translates as:
But the court from the outward of the temple cast out and not ever measure the same, for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
The statement then is clear enough: not those will be risen who wail at the wall, but those who pray in the temple, which obviously leads to the rebuilding issue, but that whole issue is answered by the message of the verse:
Seek the divine, shun the theatre.
which is the only way to raise God's temple.
