World leaders seem to be relentless in their attempts to establish a independent Palestinian State within Israel's God-given land, with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. Since a negotiated agreement is not likely to work, the UN is almost certain to approve the Palestinian demands. Such a division will not be tolerated by Israel...nor, will the Lord God of Israel look the other way.
When I consider the events currently unfolding over the dividing of the Jewish land and Jerusalem, I am mindful of the words from Zechariah.
Zechariah 14:2 NKJV
For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
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...East Jerusalem for the Palestinians, and West Jerusalem for Israel. A major battle over Jerusalem is 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!
