Rising above the Kidron Vally, the Mount of Olives provides us with one of the most special sights in Jerusalem.
From here one can see the Mercy Gate, also known as the Golden Gate, through which shall occur the Second Coming of Christ.
This closed gate, made of solid brick, can be clearly seen in both the pictures below and the videos. From ancient times, long before the time of Christ, it was prophesied that through it will come the Messiah into our world, as it is written:
“Then said the Lord unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.” (Ezekiel 44:2, 3 KJV)
From the top of the holiest mountain in Christian faith, a spectacular view of the ancient ruined Temple of Jerusalem can be seen. It was here, on The Mount of Olives, that Jesus prophesied the destruction of the city. Here he stayed longer than any other place in Jerusalem, teaching the Word of God to all who came to witness.
One of the most significant events that took place here, was the self evidence of Jesus Christ, which inevitably led to Him being persecuted and finally caught by the Pharisees and Priests that tended the ancient temple.
It was at this place where Jesus came to make His message clear to all, and to be challenged by any and all who could not face the true Word of God:
“Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” (John 12:42, 43 KJV)
