  • Petra

    I am pretty convinced that after the abomination of desolation the jews will flee to Petra. I was watching a national geographic episode last night on netflix about Petra and I was somewhat amazed to discover that there is a whole city there built into the rock just waiting for someone to come occupie it.

    Do you believe that the Jews will flee to Petra or somewhere else and did you know that there is already a city there built long ago?
    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18

    Yes, I was aware of this. There is supposedly also an organization which currently delivers canned goods (etc) and Bibles there, to which one can contribute, if they so desire.

    I'm not sure whether the place the Jews will flee to will be Petra or Bozrah (see the scripture on "Bozrah"), or whether they are even two different locations (my memory is foggy on this, today ).

      Looks like Petra is located in Bozrah

        Petra is the place I most suspect will be the location that many Jews flee to as well. Yes, I knew that the area had been previously inhabited.

          Jlutz, in my post above, I was almost going to post that I was sure Jack Kelley had an article about it, detailing this.

            Bozrah IS Petra

            Joh 14:6 dicit ei Iesus ego sum via et veritas et vita nemo venit ad Patrem nisi per me

            Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

                    I believe that Petra was the place that Indiana Jones found the Holy Grail in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." Looks like a beautiful place. I know some people take a pilgrimage and place bibles in there for when the Jews flee to it.

                        There was a post/thread here long ago about a some guy in the early 1900's (?) who hid different portions of Scripture in Petra for the Jewish Trib saints...

                        Okay, I'm having a brain fog too! I just remember it was so cool to think Petra is being prepared for God's people.

                          I've been to Petra. It had been inhabited by the Nabateans. It is the place called "Alexandretta" from the one Indiana Jones movie.

                          I hadn't heard about Bibles being hidden around there. That's just wonderful!!! It is in the country of Jordan and I am curious as to how the Jews will escape to there. The Jordanians are not very welcoming to them. Living there is not going to be a cake walk for the Jews. First, a large portion of the place is actually graves. The bones of dead men were and may still be there, making the place ritually 'unclean' to them.

                          Secondly, animals have been using the caves there as toilets for centuries. I went in a couple of them and couldn't believe the horrible odors!!!!! I do believe this is one of the places the Lord has set aside as a place of protection for His chosen people, but unless He decides to supernaturally, cleanse it, it's not going to be a picnic.

                          There is another site that would be and equally wonderful place for them to take refuge. That place is Masada. It's huge, capable of storing up to 7 years worth of water and well protected. Every member of the IDF swears the following oath: "Masada will not fall again". I can't help but think this is inspired by the Lord. Masada is also not a walk in the park. It may not have the same issues Petra has, but it is terribly hot up there. I know, I've been there as well.

                          An interesting thing about Masada is that there are birds there that are found nowhere else in the world! Not even in any other part of Israel! They seem to possess a strange sort of intelligence. When my tour group was all seated underneath a canopy (blessed shade), listening to our tour guide, some of the birds actually came and stood next to us and really seemed to be listening to what our tour guide was saying. I asked about that and Pilar (our tour guide) explained that the birds often do that. They showed complete comfort sitting while sitting next to us and really seemed intent on listening to Pilar.

                          An old Jewish legend says that these birds contain the souls of those who sacrificed their lives on Masada rather than being taken captive by the Romans and forced to worship pagan deities. Pilar thought it could be possible that these birds were already being assembled for the feast of Revelation 19:17-18. I was just fascinated by these places and knowing that they would one day, protect people from the wrath of the ac. The Lord is truly amazing!!




                          My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
                          For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


                          Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!

                            Interesting tidbits and insight especially since you've been there. How cool!

                            In every act of agression, Israel has gained more of her land from the Arabs. It makes sense to me that before the AOD and the Jewish believers have to flee, that Israel might have gained that land back from Jordan.

                            That's colorful lore but we know that human souls are not in birds.

                              While circumstantial I find it interesting that Southern Jordan is going to be the only region protected from the antichrist. The only place in the world outside of the Antichrist's control will be where petra happens to be.
