“In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east . . . Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!” –Zech. 14:4-5
(Jerusalem, Israel)—According to news reports, America’s two biggest Christian broadcasters have positioned themselves to catch any Messianic action on the Mount of Olives, such as is described in the Bible of Jesus’ return. (Edmund Sanders, Los Angeles Times / October 1, 2012)
Daystar Television Network—based in Texas—already had a live webcam in place, fixed on the Mount of Olives, and broadcasting a continuous live stream from the terrace of its Jerusalem studios.
Last month, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN)—based in Costa Mesa—purchased the building next door, and has set up their own continuous live feed webcam trained on the same spot.
Both of the networks have targeted a portion of their programming toward those living in Israel, with the ultimate goal of supporting Messianic Jews, and bringing the Gospel to Orthodox Jews who will receive it.
According to the L.A. Times report, Christian Evangelical groups—such as TBN and Daystar—have “quietly and steadily expanded their footprint in Jerusalem.”
