My Comment: Spoof? I don’t know, but I do know that there is increased talk in Jerusalem about the Jewish Messiah. I do know that they are not the only ones that think the return of the Messiah is imminent. However one thing this shows is that they do not understand what the return of the Messiah means. There will be no worries about where to live, we as Christians know what to expect. Don’t we? Yes we do. Revelation 21 describes this perfectly. The New Jerusalem, and Christs reign. And I think I can guarantee that there will be no need for clauses for the Messiah’s return in rental agreements.
Many Jerusalem residents believe not only that the Messiah will return, but that his arrival is imminent – so imminent they have taken legal precautions to ensure they can return to Jerusalem immediately upon his return.
In apartment contracts around the city, there are clauses stipulating what will happen to the apartment if or when the Jewish Messiah, or mashiach, comes. The owners, generally religious Jews living abroad, are concerned that he will arrive, build a third temple, and turn Israel into paradise – and they will be stuck waiting for their apartment tenants’ contracts to run out before they can move back.
