In August, the King David Harps workshop near Jerusalem burned to the ground during a fire that destroyed 5,000 acres of forest. Shoshanna and Micah Harari have been making biblical harps and psalteries for 40 years based on the Bible, archaeology, and the Talmud. They have constructed harps for the Temple Institute, which is making preparations for the Third Temple. About 40 harps were destroyed in the fire. The Valley of Dry Bones prophecy in Ezekiel 37 describes the return of Israel in two stages, first in a condition of spiritual death, then in spiritual conversion (Eze. 37:8-10). The first part of the prophecy is being fulfilled today. Israel is back in the land and is setting the stage for the coming of the Antichrist which is described in the great 70-Week prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27. “… the prince … shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” The Lord Jesus explained that this refers to the Antichrist, who will desecrate the Third Temple, marking the beginning of the Great Tribulation. “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains … For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:15-16, 21). No prophecy of Scripture has ever failed. These events are imminent.
