Dr. Michael Evans, a leading evangelical expert on Israel, believes that “spiritual warfare,” is at the core of the recent Temple Mount conflict.
“This (the Temple Mount) is where Satan said, ‘I will exalt myself above the most high, I will sit on the mount of congregations on the side of the north,’” Evans told CBN News, citing Isaiah 14:13. “That’s the Temple Mount.”
“It’s spiritual warfare, and for believers, it needs to cause us to look up,” he added. “We need to see this as a sign of the time because the birth of Israel, the restoration of the Hebrew language, the reuniting of Jerusalem – all of this is a fulfillment of prophecy, but there’s a war going on… between darkness and light.”
