A Heart and Soul matter
Jerusalem: everyone has an opinion. As a Christian, have you fallen out with God?
Shalom from Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital! Last year ended with political fireworks! On December 6th US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, advancing the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:2-3.
Having often cited these verses, we were not too surprised, but it is imperative for us to remember that it is not Trump, or Israeli Prime Minister [PM] Bibi Netanyahu, or religious Jews or Christian Zionists, who make Jerusalem a target; it is our Creator God (12:1). He brings His plans to pass in His time, regardless of man’s plans. (Ps. 33:10-11) “Behold, I, [YHWH], make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the peoples all around…”Most of Israel’s Arab neighbors despise Jerusalem remaining under Jewish sovereignty. “In that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples. All who lift it shall be cut to pieces, though all nations of the earth will gather together against it.” (Zech. 12:2-3) Today, this is occurring in the geo-political realm; in the future in actual combat, yet note God’s decree: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to utterly annihilate all nations that come against Jerusalem.” (Zech. 12:9)
