This week on Beyond Today…
[Gary Petty] In August 2020 an agreement was announced between the State of Israel and the United Arab Emirates to normalize relations. Some held the agreement as an historic step in bringing peace to the Middle East. Others felt very bad about it, they denounced it because the Palestinians actually felt betrayed. One of the benefits of the accord was the opening of air traffic between the two countries, but a commercial by the Emirates Airlines immediately caused such a backlash from the Palestinians it had to be pulled.
Now watch a few seconds of the commercial and see if you can catch what was offensive to the Palestinians.
[The commercial is shown on Beyond Today.]
Did you notice what's offensive? Look at the upper corner up here. (He gestures to the screen.) They found this offensive, it's what caused the protest. Why?
We're going to look at the Biblical history of the Jerusalem temple, some Biblical prophecies concerning a future end time temple, and the real importance for God's people about a temple for Christians about a temple. And we will see why this commercial is offensive to so many Palestinians.
This week on Beyond Today, Gary Petty answers what’s offensive in the commercial and what God has to say about a temple He is building now.
