August 6: Tisha b’Av

-God’s offer

In His love and mercy, God continuously offers Israel and all people a way of deliverance, salvation and redemption. His offer has one condition, by grace through faith in His atonement – Yeshua .

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us reason together,”

Says the Lord,

“Though your sins are like scarlet,

They shall be as white as snow;

Though they are red like crimson,

They shall be as wool.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REMEMBER GOD’S FAITHFULNESS AND TURN TO HIM WITH WHOLE HEARTS.

The Antonia Fortress was a military barracks built over the Hasmonean Baris by Herod the Great. Named for his patron Mark Antony, a pre 31 BC date is certain for the Fort as Mark Anthony was defeated by Octavius (later Augustus Caesar) at the sea battle of Actium in 31 BC. Built in Jerusalem on the site of earlier Ptolemaic and Hasmonean strongholds, the fortress was built at the eastern end of the great wall of the city (the second wall), on the northeastern side of the city, near the Temple Mount and the Pool of Bethesda.
