Skull Hill – May 2013 Report

22 04 2013

GolgothaAnd they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull. Mark 15:22

The “Place of a Skull” in this verse is a specific location in Jerusalem which can still be seen today. I serve as Chairman of the Board of the Golgotha Foundation which seeks to preserve the site for Christian and archeological tourism. Golgotha is a Hebrew word meaning “Place of a Skull.” The practical fact is that the building of a new Muslim mosque, minarets and a cemetery are encroaching on the site, threatening to undermine, erode and eventually destroy the amazing cliff face.

We are excited to announce our May 2013 Update Report is now posted on the above Menu tab: Golgotha. Please review the new material and stand with us. We hope to hear any day now of our accepted application to the World Monuments Fund which will put Golgotha “on the map” so to speak.

Also, please pray for this project that the world will learn the geography of the historical death and resurrection of Jesus. It is a great confirmation of Christian faith and the Biblical record. Located in Jerusalem right next to the Garden Tomb, it precisely fits the Biblical details not only of the crucifixion, but also the resurrection.

Islam Steals Golgotha

24 05 2012

There is a serious problem taking place at one of Christendom’s holiest sites. Muslims are encroaching on the site next to the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, called “the place of the skull” or Golgotha. This post features the latest development, two new signs embedded in a new wall right on the top of the famous Christian site. This new wall circles a Muslim cemetery on the hilltop. Look very closely in the first picture at the wall above the place of the skull (taken from the Garden Tomb observation deck). The signs are in Arabic. What do  they say?

The left sign says “Islamic Cemetery for the Mujahideen (or Freedom Fighters)”.

The right sign says “No God but All-h and Muhammad is his Messenger”.

Mujahideen comes from the root word “jihad”: The modern phenomenon of jihadism, i.e., the movement within radical Islamism that presents jihad (offensive or defensive) as the casus belli for insurgencies, guerilla warfare and international terrorism (definition from Wikipedia).

There is a more complete picture of this encroachment available on the right most tab on the Menu bar at the top of this page. (or click here).

The implications of this go far beyond religious sensitivities. It exposes the agenda of radical Islam to obliterate all other religions in their relentless drive to dominate the entire planet. We must not be ignorant of their devices.

     lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11 NKJV

     so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem which can only come when the Messiah Jesus returns, Yeshua ben Yehovah.
