  5. 5. 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.

  9. 9. Just when it seemed that peace was Endtime Archive within reach, the talks stalled. The issue on which the two sides could not reach agreement was control of the 36 acres that Israelis call the Temple Mount. Muslims call it the Haram al-Sharif or the Noble Sanctuary. Israel’s First and Second Temples stood there, and Jews have prayed toward this place for the last 2,000 years. Muslims claim that Mohammed ascended into heaven on his horse from the Temple Mount back in the Seventh Century. Even though the future for peace in the Middle East depended on solving the status of the Temple Mount, still Arafat and Barak could not agree. Arafat con- tended that the Temple Mount belonged to Muslims and that its holiness could not be compromised. Barak said that no Israeli prime minister could ever perma- nently surrender control of the center of Jewish life and the heart and soul of the Jewish nation to the Palestinians.
