The book of Revelation predicts that the ancient city of Petra, in Jordan the neighboring country to Israel, will become a place of refuge for the Jews, who will be in flight from their homeland when the final conflict breaks out between Moslems and Jews. Petra was first mentioned as the city of Edom, or the rose red city. It was founded by the brother of Jacob/Israel, who was Esau, over three thousand years ago.
The city is a labyrinth of caves and tombs, but while it rests in the Jordanian desert along the Kings highway it is fed with springs that literally come up from the ground. In fact one of the springs is called the spring of Musa. Musa was the Arabic name for Moses. It was during the forty year wilderness wandering of the Hebrews, that Israel came to the this very place, where Moses struck a rock and water flowed out. Water still flows even to this day. Ironically, when Israel has to flee to Petra, they will again be watered by this same spring where Moses struck the rock.
The enormity of the city and its thousands of cave tombs will be able to house and handle the multitude of Jews fleeing the onslaught of the terrible evil forces even now bearing down on this historic people. This film takes you back to this most amazing city and its remarkable history, that includes the location where the marauding Edomites lived, a “refuge city” for man slayers, the location for Apostle Paul’s wanderings on the so called back side, Cleopatra who purchased it, and where the filming of one of the Indian Jones’ movies took place. This film is a visit and preview of a prophecy
in the future, yet to take place..
