What should be the status of Jerusalem?

(6.30pm on Sunday 28th January)

Donald Trump caused a storm when he declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel and promised to move the US Embassy there.  Many in Israel saw it as a recognition that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and should remain undivided and ruled by Israel.  This supports the Jewish people’s 3000 year old connection to this city.  On the other side, the Palestinians saw it as a denial of their demand for a Palestinian State with its capital in Jerusalem.  There was a storm of protest across the Arab and Muslim world, and strong messages of disapproval from the UN, EU, Russia, China  and the Vatican.  

 

Do you ever wonder why Jerusalem is such an issue on the world scene?  What is it about this relatively small city in the Judean hills that rouses such passions?

 

On one level the answer is the significance of Jerusalem to the three faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  At the same time Bible prophecies indicate that a battle for Jerusalem will be a key sign of the last days of this age and the coming of the Messiah.

 

According to the prophet Zechariah, writing about 2500 years ago, at the end of this age Jerusalem will be ‘a cup of reeling’ to the surrounding nations and a ‘very heavy stone for all peoples’ which ‘all nations of the earth are gathered against.’  Zechariah 12.2-3.  In other words, something will happen which will cause Jerusalem to become the centre of world attention.  Zechariah goes on to say how this will bring about the final conflict of this age and the coming of the Messiah to the Mount of Olives just east of Jerusalem. He will then set up His Messianic Kingdom ruling the nations from Jerusalem: ‘And the Lord shall be king over all the earth.’  Zechariah 14.9.

 

Will this be His first or second appearance?  The prophecies of the Messiah in the Hebrew scriptures show that it will be His second coming. He came the first time in the person of Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah, to fulfil the Messianic Prophecies of the Suffering Servant, laying down His life as a sacrifice for our sins (see Isaiah 53). Now we see all the signs given in the Bible which point to the second coming of Messiah taking place. When He comes again He will come with all the power of God to judge the world in righteousness, and bring peace and justice (see Isaiah 2 and 11). To be ready for His return we must repent and believe the good news that Messiah died for our sins, was buried and rose again from the dead.
