See if Jesus has come back yet.
Since most of the people who are into learning about the end times are rather radical about their views, we put here a cool link to literally see if Jesus has come back.
Golden Gate, the Mercy (Golden) Gate (Bab el Rahmeh), appears in the history of three major world religions. An early Jewish tradition holds that it is through that gate that the Messiah will enter Jerusalem. According to Christian tradition, Jesus made his last entry to Jerusalem through the Mercy Gate. The Muslims refer to it as the Gate of Mercy and believe it to be the gate referred to in the Koran, through which the just will pass on the Day of Judgment.
In the Bible in the book of Revelation chapter 14 verses 1 to 3, it says that Jesus will return to Mount Zion: "Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth."
From the website http://bible-history.com we learn more details about specifically where Jesus might be found upon his return.
The East Gate and the Return of Jesus.
From the Bible in Nehemiah 3:29: "...the gate that looketh toward the east: And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east."
1 Then he brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary, which faces east; and it was shut.
2 And he said to me, "This gate shall remain shut; it shall not be opened, and no one shall enter by it; for the LORD, the God of Israel, has entered by it; therefore it shall remain shut.
3 Only the prince may sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gate, and shall go out by the same way."
The "Golden Gate" was located in the East wall of Jerusalem; it was one of eleven entrance gates into the city. Notice in the below picture that this gate is sealed shut. It was sealed up in the 16th century A.D.
A little background on the East gate of Jerusalem: The East gate was walled up by the Ottoman Turks in 1530 A.D. Notice also the cemetery that has been planted in front of it. Many believe this was done to prevent the entrance of the Jewish Messiah through that gate as was foretold by known Old Testament prophecies. However, Ezekiel prophesied the shutting of this gate itself around 600 B.C. -- that it would be shut "because the LORD (Jehovah or Yahweh), the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut."
Jesus entered Jerusalem through the East gate around 30 A.D. (long before it was blocked by the Ottomans) as he came down from the Mount of Olives and entered the temple according to our understanding of Luke 19:28-48. He would have entered through the original gate in the wall which was destroyed with the city by the Romans in 70 A.D. Ezekiel says concerning this closed gate that the "Prince" (which the Messiah is often called throughout the Old Testament and Jesus is called in the New Testament) shall enter it again. Jesus, having entered the city, said that he would not be seen again until Jerusalem acknowledges him (Matthew 23:37-39).
The Eastern gate is presently considered by the Arabs to be their exclusive property. It is sealed up and blocked off. However one day, the Messiah will land on the Mount of Olives, with all His saints, and walk down to and right through the Eastern Gate and into the Temple area.
END of quote
In Zechariah 14:4-11, it says, "On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. 5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. 6 On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. 7 It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime-- a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light. 8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. 9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name. 10 The whole land, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up and remain in its place, from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses. 11 It will be inhabited; never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure."
Here is a picture of the "Golden Gate" (or Eastern Gate) in the wall in center of the picture. The view is from the Mount of Olives.
Below is a link that will open a live video camera of Jerusalem. The video camera is located in the Sheraton Plaza hotel just West of the old city wall. So you are looking East. In the background in the Mount of Olives. Just behind the golden Dome of the Rock is the Eastern Gate but you can not see it in this live video feed. So if you see Jesus coming down the Mount of Olives toward the Eastern Gate then you can be assured that Jesus has returned to earth.
Click here to see the live video of Jerusalem. If the video is dark it may be night time in Jerusalem.
Click here to see a live video of the Western Wall (shown on left). This is where Jews come to pray. Above it is the Dome of the Rock where Muslims pray. If you see the Jews in this live video running it could be civil unrest or it also could be the return of Jesus.
This link is the latest camera that we know works.
Here is a link to an old camera of the Eastern Gate. Last we checked the camera was not working. Click here
