Frenzy Over Jerusalem

by Donald Mehl  
9/20/2011 / Prophecy

World leaders seem to be unified in their attempts to establish an independent Palestinian State within Israel's God-given land, with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. Since negotiations toward a settlement have been fruitless and are doomed for failure, the UN will undoubtedly approve the relentless demands of the Palestinians for a State. Such a forced unilateral division of Israeli land will not be tolerated by Israel...nor, will the Lord God of Israel look the other way.

When I consider the prophetic events currently unfolding over the division of Jewish land and Jerusalem, I am mindful of the words from Zechariah. They are promises from the Lord God that His wrath would ultimately fall on all who would seek to divide Israel, the city of Jerusalem, and destroy the Jewish people.

Zechariah 14:2 NKJV
For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

("Half of the city shall go into captivity") Isn't that exactly what is about to happen? From that Scripture, the city will be divided in half...with East Jerusalem for the Palestinians, and West Jerusalem for Israel. A major battle over Jerusalem is certain and imminent.

Zechariah 12:2-3 NKJV
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

Zechariah 12:9 NKJV
It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

During retirement, my prayer is that I might serve the Lord by sharing the Gospel through my writing. As the Lord leads, my work will inform, challenge and encourage. I also enjoy Biblical theme woodcarving, Bible studies and Christian music. Watch, pray and keep looking up!
