  • Prophecy Tour 2001 United Nations-Egypt-Israel March 27-April 7 (12 days) Moses grimaced when he saw the whip of the Egyptian taskmaster snake across the back of the Israeli slave. Anger welled up in him when he saw the angry stripe that was left across the Jewish back. At that moment, he made up in his mind that he and his people were leaving that place! It took forty years, but leave they did. The excitement was high as they headed north toward the long-dreamed-of “Promised Land.” Little did Moses know that it would be forty years before he would stand on Mount Nebo, gazing longingly into the land of Israel. That was as close as he would ever get. In Egypt: The overseas portion of Prophecy Tour 2001 will begin by walking in the footsteps of Moses and the children of Israel in the land of Egypt. We will visit Goshen where they lived while in Egypt and see the brickyards where they toiled. Believe it or not, bricks are still being made there till this day! While in Egypt, we will also see the Great Pyramid, the Great Sphinx, the Cairo Museum and visit Old Cairo. We will then travel north through the Sinai desert, across the Suez Canal, finally arriving in the land of Israel. In Israel: Stand on the Mount of Olives where Jesus will stand when He returns—Visit the Temple Mount itself where the Third Temple will soon be built—See the cornerstone intended for the rebuilding of the Third Temple—At the Temple Institute we will see the vessels and the garments already pre- pared for resumption of temple worship—Visit the Garden Tomb and the Garden of Gethsemane—See the site of the coming Battle of Armageddon—We will visit Judean settlements where Jesus prophesied great tribulation will come in the near future (Matthew 24:15-16)—Boat across the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked on the water. And much, much more! At the United Nations: Prophecy Tour 2001 will begin in New York City at the United Nations—the seat of world gov- ernment. A guided tour will take us through the chambers of the UN where decisions are made that change the course of the world. A one-hour briefing by a UN official has been arranged especially for the members of our Endtime Prophecy Tour. We have just scratched the surface concerning the things you will experience in the land of the Bible. There is no doubt that Prophecy Tour 2001 will be the trip of a lifetime! I hope that you can join my wife, Judy, and me as we experience the UN, Egypt, and the Holy Land together. Eddie Sax, co-host for “Politics & Religion,” and his wife Charlotte will be with us on the tour. It will be a great time. Don’t miss it! The cost for the entire 12-day United Nations, Egypt, and Israel tour will be $2195 plus tips and taxes. You can insure your place on the tour by sending your deposit of $250 to Endtime, PO Box 2066, Richmond, IN 47375. Total payment will need to be made 45 days before departure.

This one was different. For the first time in the history of the world, Israel put the future of Jerusalem on the table.

  • Endtime Photo issue was simply too hot to handle. Consequently, both parties agreed to just leave it alone for the time being. It was decided, however, that negotiations on the final status of Jerusalem would com- mence by May of 1996. When the May 1996 deadline rolled around, Prime Minister Shimon Peres and Benjamin Netanyahu were in the heat of an election campaign. To satisfy the provisions of the Oslo Agreement, Peres held a ceremonial opening of final status negotiations. But with his loss of the election, these talks never got off the ground. The Oslo Accords provided for final borders and the final status of Jerusalem to be negotiated and implemented by May 4, 1999. In the months preceding this date, Arafat proclaimed that, if the promised negotiations were not com- pleted on time, he would unilaterally declare a Palestinian state. This evoked all kinds of apocalyptic visions of disaster The Western Wall of the Temple Mount is shown here. This is as close to the area where the in the minds of the world’s leaders. ancient Jewish Temple once stood as the Israelis are permitted to approach.

In the meantime, Arafat AP Wideworld Photos/Zoom 77 knows that giving up any control on the Temple Mount would probably result in his assassination. He later said as much when the talks broke down over that issue. The Camp David Summit began on July 11th and continued through July 25th. You must understand that these were the first negotiations ever between Jews and Arabs over the future of Jerusalem. Ehud Barak, one year ago in his campaign for election, had steadfastly promised to never surrender or divide Jerusalem. Yet at Camp David, Barak, in the end, offered to do just that. What a difference a year makes! Jews to worship on Temple Mount? Grappling with the issue of Jerusalem has been put off since the creation of the Modern State of Israel in 1948.

  • Paul Schutzer Cohen. Rabbi Shear-Yeshuv Cohen is the son-in-law of the late Chief Rabbi of Israel Shlomo Goren. It was Shlomo Goren who served as rabbi of the Israeli Army at the time of the capture of the Temple Mount in 1967. The picture of Goren standing at the Wailing Wall with a shofar to his lips became the most famous picture of the Six-Day War. It was Goren who went to the com- manding general of the Israeli forces that captured the Temple Mount to urge him to immediately blow up the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. “You will go down in history as the man who cleared the way for Israel to build her Third Temple,” Goren had stated. General Uzi ordered the rabbi to be quiet. When Goren persisted with the general, General Uzi said, “Rabbi, if you don’t be quiet, I will have to take you to jail.” Rabbi Goren sadly walked away. Now, thirty-three years later, Goren’s son-in-law is spearheading the fight to build the Third Temple on the Temple Shlomo Goren is shown praying on Temple Mount after its capture in the Six Day War in 1967.

  • exclusive interview—benjamin Crème from the Christian point of view, he is The Denver Post the Christ and is awaited. Most Christians would say they await the re- turn of Jesus, but in fact, Maitreya worked through Jesus 2,000 years ago in Palestine, inaugurating the age that has now come to an end. Maitreya and his group of masters, including Jesus, have returned and are returning to the world to inaugurate the New Age – The Age of Aquarius. So what we are seeing is an ex- traordinary congruence of events: The return of the Christ from a Christian point of view, but from the Buddhist point of view the coming of the fifth Buddha – Maitreya Buddha. Two-thou- sand six-hundred years ago, the Buddha made a prophecy in which he said an- other great teacher would come into the world at this time—a Buddha like him- self by the name of Maitreya.

The inten- Endtime Photo tional distance has served to insulate the UN from having to answer for any of the UR’s activities, as well as for the activi- ties of any other such spiritual organizations with whom they are associ- ated—and there are quite a few. Because of their careful approach, the United Nations is not seen as having a religious agenda. It is seen as a political entity only—as an impartial third party in world politics. If it ever is perceived, however, that the UN has a religious agenda, it would cast a dark shadow over their impartiality and their ability to op- erate. This is why direct UN involvement in religious forums has been carefully avoided. Let the truth be known…the UN does have a religion. And this religion influ- ences it from its core. It’s a dark secret. If it ever became widely known that the UN has been operating in accordance with certain religious principles, and that it intends to impose this religion on its global citizens, it would be curtains and Father O’Rouke, a Catholic Priest from San Francisco, proudly signs the charter that gave birth back to the drawing board. to the United Religions Initiative.

Is that what happened to Mikhail Gorbachev? There are some who speculate that nothing happened. They contend he is the same wolf he always was. Only now he dresses in sheep’s clothing. His goal, they say, is the same, but it is only his tac- tic that has changed. The goal is still to conquer the world, but his new tactic is to work in concert with the United Nations using a tool called environmen- talism. And the vehicle he will use to make his ultimate conquest is…the Earth Charter. “I was just passing by and thought I’d drop this charter off” The man who took office in 1985 was on the streets by 1991. He had it all, and then nothing. It was strange. In 1992, Gorbachev attended the Earth Summit in Rio, and was seen running with a Ted Turner, whose $1 billion donation to the UN funded the World Millennium Peace Summit, ad- Canadian globalist named Maurice dressed the attendees on Tuesday, August 29.
