Opinion: That our new best friend in the ME has a problem with Jerusalem, is proof that there is a lot of Bible prophecy left to be fulfilled:
Look at how the OT and NT are in agreement about Jerusalem in the last days of the tribulation:
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem..” Zechariah 12:9
“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.” Luke 21:21
Luke then repeats Jesus words in Matthew 24:“Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains …” but Luke adds to this to the warning:
“let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.”
Jesus is warning the Jews that near the end of the tribulation Jerusalem will not be safe and cautions those who want to hide in Jerusalem that the city will be temporarily abandoned “Come out of her, my people” (Revelation 18:4) until the return of Jesus (Revelation 19:13-16).
Only in Jordan will it be safe (Daniel 11:41) for the Jews to hide.
The scene is the end of the tribulation and God is about to save His children corporately; the same way they were called:
“And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.” Genesis 17:7
Having instructed (Zechariah 12:10) the House of David (royalty) and those in Jerusalem (commoners) to flee to the mountains (Mt. Seir, Edom) which have been desolate for 2500 years (Jeremiah 19:8) Jesus will meet them there where they will acknowledge Him as Messiah.
And all Israel will be saved (Romans 25:10).
I have to admit that Romans 25:10 and Zechariah 12:10 have been of particular interest to me for several months. When that happens you will see a lot of posts on the subject similar to Jacob and Esau. I can’t really help it.
Keep in mind that there are at least 20-50 people that look into our site each day from Google searches that likely have never heard these accounts.
In the coming weeks we will post our study called “Two Trains” to Bible Prophecy 101, to show how God’s blessing and calling differ between Israel and the church.
