“Jerusalem – 101” …Blog.
*** (Luke 13:34-35) Jerusalem! Jerusalem! The one killing the prophets; and stoning those having been sent to her; how often I [Jesus] desired to gather your children in the way a hen gathers her brood under the wings; and you did not desire it.
(Luke 13:35) Behold, your house is left to you desolate. And truly I [Jesus] say to you; You will not see Me until it come when you say; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
*** (Jeremiah 3:17) At that time they shall call Jerusalem: the throne of the LORD Jehovah; and “ALL” nations shall be gathered to it; to the name of the LORD Jehovah; to Jerusalem. Nor shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart.
*** (Zechariah 12:10) And I [God] will pour on the house of David; and on the people of Jerusalem: the spirit of grace and of prayers. And they shall look on Me [Jesus]; Whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him; as one mourns for his only son; and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born.
Israel, the Chosen people of GOD… were given a ‘LAND’… by God Himself. They were given by Covenant; “ALL” the Land from the Nile River; to the Tigris Euphrates Rivers, Iraq/Iran. Today they have only a ‘portion’ of that land; because of the “SIN/SINS” of their Nation. Actually, only since 1948 did Israel become a Nation; in the eyes of the world. Even some of their original lands were reclaimed in the Israel 1973 war; where they defeated an Arab forces; seven times their size. Jerusalem, the “Capital of Israel” has since been held captive by the Mosque of Omar, a Muslim site. Only when Christ JESUS comes back and rules for the Millennium, “1,000–years”: will He will reign in Jerusalem; with a ‘Rod of Iron!’ There will be No More WAR…! During that time and the Jews will reach world prominence as the People of God!
*** (1Kings 11:3-to-8) And he had seven hundred wives, princesses; and three hundred concubines. And his wives turned away his heart.
(1Ki 11:4) For it happened when Solomon was old; his wives turned away his heart after other gods. And his heart was ‘Not’ perfect with Jehovah his God; as was the heart of David his father.
(1Ki 11:5) For Solomon went after Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom, the abomination of the Ammonites;
(1Ki 11:6) and Solomon did evil in the sight of Jehovah, and did not go fully after Jehovah like his father David.
(1Ki 11:7) Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh; the abomination of Moab; in the hill which is before Jerusalem; and for Molech, the abomination of the sons of Ammon.
(1Ki 11:8) And likewise he did for ‘All’ his foreign wives; and burned incense and sacrificed to their gods. [Deuteronomy 17 Violation]
*** (Zechariah 8:23) So says Jehovah, LORD of Hosts: In those days ten men, out of all languages of the nations; shall take hold, and will seize the skirt of a man; a Jew, saying; We will go with you; for we have heard that God is with you.
*** (Isaiah 65:19-to-25) I [God] will rejoice in Jerusalem; and I will rejoice in My people; and the voice of weeping will no more be heard in her, nor the voice of crying be heard in her.
(Isa 65:20) There will not be an infant; nor an old man that has not filled his days. For the child will die a hundred years old; but the sinner who is a hundred years old will be despised.
(Isa 65:21) And they will build houses and live in them; and they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
(Isa 65:22) They will not build, and another live in them; they will not plant, and another eat. For like the days of a tree are the days of My people, and My elect will long enjoy the work of their hands.
(Isa 65:23) They will not labor in vain, nor bring forth for terror. For they are the seed of the beloved of the LORD Jehovah; and their offspring with them.
(Isa 65:24) And it will be, before they call I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
(Isa 65:25) The wolf and the lamb will feed together; and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the food of the snake. They will ‘Not’ hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, says the LORD Jehovah.
Have ‘You’ read completely through the OT…? Threads of such ‘Prophecy’ about Jerusalem: are replete through the OT! Even after the “70–year Babylon” captivity… Israel returned to GOD: Only to again; depart from Him and His Holy Word. The 400 years of Silence between ‘Malachi & Matthew’… prepared Israel for the Messiah. Yet, as God was repeatedly ‘Rejected’ by His people Israel; they also ‘Rejected’ Christ Jesus; the Passover Lamb of God [1Corinthains 5:7]. Christ Jesus even promised the ‘Destruction’ of Jerusalem in “Mark 13:1-2” and other places. God’s Witnesses; the Jews: were set aside after rejecting Christ Jesus… and His message was given to the Church. Each time Israel “SINNED”… their Temple there in Jerusalem; was “Destroyed”. And they did not reason; it was their “Own [Sin] Doing!”
*** (Joshua 8:34-35) And afterward he [Joshua] read “ALL” the words of the Law; the blessings and cursings; according to “ALL” that is written in the book of the Law.
(Josh 8:35) There was not a word of “ALL” that Moses commanded; which Joshua did not read before “ALL” the congregation of Israel; with the women and the little ones; and the strangers [Gentiles] that walked among them.
*** (2Chronciles 6:32-33) And also to the stranger [Gentile]; who is ‘Not’ of Your people Israel; but has come from a far country; for Your [God’s] great name's sake; and Your mighty hand; and Your stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;
(2Chron 6:33) then hear from Heaven; from Your dwelling-place; and do according to “ALL” that the stranger calls to You for; so that “ALL” people of the earth may know Your name; and fear You; as Your people Israel; and may know that this house which I [Solomon] have built is called by Your name.
*** (John 4:20-to-24) Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
(John 4:21) Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me; the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father [God] in this mountain; nor yet at Jerusalem.
(John 4:22) You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
(John 4:23) But the hour is coming, and now is; when the true worshipers; shall worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
(John 4:24) God is a Spirit; and they who worship Him; must worship in Spirit and in Truth.
*** (Mark 13:1-2) And as He [Jesus] went out of the temple; one of His disciples said to Him, Master, see! What stones and what buildings!
(Mark 13:2) And answering Jesus said to him; Do you see these great buildings? There shall ‘Not’ be one stone left on another; that shall ‘Not’ be thrown down.
*** (Romans 11:25) For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery; brothers, lest you should be wise within yourselves; that blindness in part has happened to Israel; until the ‘fullness’ of the Gentiles has comes in.
*** (Luke 21:24) And they shall fall by the sword's edge. And shall be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the nations; until the ‘times’ of the Gentiles is fulfilled.
Siege of Jerusalem (70AD)
Christ Jesus will ‘Return’… and “Will USHER” in His Kingdom here on Earth! Satan will be bound to the Pit; for those “Thousand Years!” It will be like Paradise here on Earth. And yet at the end of those ‘Thousand Years’… Satan will be Loosed from the Pit; and once again Deceive the Peoples of Earth! Much of mankind will follow HIM [Satan]; and will turn “Against Christ!” Fire will come down out of Heaven and destroy them; in the valley called “Armageddon!”
*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.
*** (Psalms 24:7-to-10) Lift up your heads, O gates; and be lifted up, O everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
(Psa 24:8) Who is this King of glory? Jehovah strong and mighty, Jehovah mighty in battle.
(Psa 24:9) Lift up your heads, O gates; even lift up, O everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
(Psa 24:10) Who is this King of glory? Jehovah of Hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.
Handel Messiah - Lift up your heads [Psalms 24:7-to-10]
*** (Revelation 5:5-to-10) And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book and to lose the seven seals of it.
(Rev 5:6) And I looked, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, amidst the elders; a Lamb [Christ] stood, as if it had been slain; having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
(Rev 5:7) And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne.
(Rev 5:8) And when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having harps and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
(Rev 5:9) And they sang a new song, saying; You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals; for You were slain and have redeemed us to God by Your blood; out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation.
(Rev 5:10) And You made us kings and priests to our God, and we will reign over the earth.

Yes, Christ Jesus will Rule from His City… “Jerusalem!” Israel, will once again be a witness for Christ! Actually, Israel is the “Only Country” on the face of this Earth… that was given to a People; by GOD! All other nations have been take from; Other Peoples; incorporating the peoples and nations. America was taken by the Colonists; from the Native Americans – Indians – living here beforehand. Much of Europe has the same “Conquered Peoples” history and Asia also! Once again… All will bow before “Christ JESUS”… either as “Lord” or as “Judge”…! We will ALL be Judged by; ONLY His Holy Word… either for “Eternal Rewards” or “Eternal Punishment” in the Lake of Fire!

*** (Revelation 20:10-to-15) And the Devil who deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone; where the beast and the false prophet were . And he will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
(Rev 20:11) And I saw a great white throne; and Him sitting on it; from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And a place was not found for them.
(Rev 20:12) And I saw the dead; the small and the great; stand before God. And books were opened; and another book was opened; which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
(Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and hell delivered up the dead in them. And each one of them was judged according to their works.
(Rev 20:14) And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.
(Rev 20:15) And if anyone; was not found having been written: in the Book of Life; he was cast into the Lake of Fire.
