This should be a simple question. It should have a simple answer. Why all the permanent commotion about the fraction of a fraction of real estate – Jerusalem, in Israel. Israel is small. Yet, the nations burden themselves with Jerusalem. So then – is the following true?

On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it. (Zechariah 12:3 ESV)

Yes! It’s true and even the “powerful America” cannot lift this stone – cannot move it. Will they hurt themselves in the process of being burdened by this? Yes again – they probably already have. Even apart from, but also including 9/11, God’s blessing is departing from the federation that is the United States of America. The hope remains, ironically in disunity with the prevailing federal direction – by the White House, Obama etc.

The audio below is a discussion about the saddest day of the year for observant Jews – the day that they mourn the destruction of the second temple. Would you be surprised that Jews are routinely denied passage onto the Temple Mount while tourists & others go on undeterred & unquestioned. Amazing? I think so.

Who does Jerusalem belong to?!

  2. Its owned by whoever has the power (in numerous forms) to occupy it, nobody is entitled to it.

    Nobody is entitled to do forced relocation of people from their homes because you believe you have a holy right to do so.
