Who really has the rights to Jerusalem?
Jerusalem, the Holy City, is
revered by three groups of people.
For Jews, it is holy because that is
where King David built the Temple.
Muslims hold Jerusalem sacred
because it is where their prophet,
Mohammed was said to have been
transported to heaven.
Christians, revere the Holy
City because it was where Jesus
ministered to the people, died, rose
again and then ascended to heaven.
The battle being fought at this
point in history is between the
Jewish people and the Muslims. They
are fighting for physical possession
of the city. They can fight and
manipulate, but it won't change the
outcome. Jerusalem belongs to the
Jews and to God. Jesus called it,
"The apple of my eye." The final
battle will be fought one day and
then Jesus Himself will be
victorious against al the nations
who come against Jerusalem. He will
reign from His throne in Jerusalem
for 1000-years (millennial kingdom).
thus says the
of hosts: "He sent Me after glory,
to the nations which plunder you;
for he who touches you touches the
apple of His eye" (Zechariah 2:8).
