Fast Tonight And Tomorrow, Feast Someday Soon!

I recommend that everyone fasts, beginning tonight, for the Evil Report brought to Moses, the destruction of the two Temples, and all the other atrocities to the Jews over the years that occurred on Av nine.  

Please keep in mind that someday the Messiah will return. He will turn our fast days into days of gladness. We will feast on the fast days someday soon!
"ADONAI-Tzva'ot says, 'The fast days of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months are to become times of joy, gladness and cheer for the house of Y'hudah. Therefore, love truth and peace.'  "ADONAI-Tzva'ot says, 'In the future, peoples and inhabitants of many cities will come;  the inhabitants of one city will travel to another and say, "We must go to ask ADONAI's favor and consult ADONAI-Tzva'ot. I'll go too."  Yes, many peoples and powerful nations will come to consult ADONAI-Tzva'ot in Yerushalayim and to ask ADONAI's favor.'  ADONAI-Tzva'ot says, 'When that time comes, ten men will take hold - speaking all the languages of the nations - will grab hold of the cloak of a Jew and say, "We want to go with you, because we have heard that God is with you." Zechariah 8:19-23 (CJB)

Weep for Jerusalem tonight, for there is exile until the Third Temple is built. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. Psalm 122:6 
Update 7.17.2013: We will see a Third Temple someday soon. It will be destroyed too. When? I propose Av 9, 2022. What is my proof-source of it's destruction?

Amazing events occurred from 30 AD to 70 AD around the Temple. For a partial list, consult http://www.windowview.org/hmny/pgs/talmuds.30ce.html

One oddity from this time frame was that the heavy temple doors—bolted to the floor—would regularly thrust themselves open. The top Rabbi of the time, Yohanan ben Zakkai, commented:

From the Jerusalem Talmud:

''Said Rabban Yohanan Ben Zakkai to the Temple, 'O Temple, why do you frighten us? We know that you will end up destroyed. For it has been said, 'Open your doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour your cedars' '' (Zechariah 11:1) (Sota 6:3).
My opinion: The soon-to-be-built Third Temple will suffer this same fate.

Shalom!
