Jerusalem: Capital of the World
June 2018
On May 14, 1948, Israel became a nation with Jerusalem as its capital. Previously, a few countries had embassies in Jerusalem but were pressured to leave. Although the United States recognized Israel as a legitimate nation in 1948, it took 70 years to recognize Jerusalem as its seat of government. On December 6, 2017, the United States was first to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel's capital. On May 14, 2018, the embassy moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Of the ninety embassies in Israel, four are now in Jerusalem. God chose Abraham, Israel and Jerusalem as parts of His redemptive plan.

I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital.  It was seventy years ago that the United States, under President Truman, recognized the State of Israel. Ever since then, Israel has made its capital in the city of Jerusalem - the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times.

It started when God chose Abraham. He was from Haman (Iraq) and moved to Canaan (Israel). God called him, "The friend of God". He is the father of many nations by Ishmael, Esau and Isaac. Through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and his sons, God chose the people of Israel for the redemption of humanity.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house, unto a land that I will show you: And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed (Genesis 12:1-3).

David conquered the city from the Jebusites and built the king's palace and capital there. Later, Solomon built the Jewish temple. Shalom or salem means peace but because it is "The City of God", it has been the center of war. The city is important to three major religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. God chose seven specific days to fulfill His plan in Jerusalem. Jesus the Messiah died, was buried and resurrected there. Jerusalem was destroyed by Babylon in 586 BC and Rome in 70 AD. Despite Israel's sin, God promisted to bring His people back home. In 1948, Israel became an independent nation and in 1967, Jerusalem was reunited under Israel's control.
Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel: But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel (2 Chronicles 6:5-6).

Today, we see Jerusalem as a city in conflict as nations fight for control. God said Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone. Antichrist will sit in the temple in Jerusalem and all nations will come against Jerusalem during the Tribulation at the Battle of Armageddon. However, at the Second Coming, Jesus will defeat His enemies and bring peace to the City of Peace.

In that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth are gathered together against it (Zechariah 12:3).

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat [in Jerusalem]. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. (Joel 3:1-2 NIV).

The capital of Israel will be capital of the world. During the Millennium reign of Jesus Christ, all nations will go to Jerusalem during Tabernacles to worship the King of Kings. The New Jerusalem will be the eternal capital of New Earth.

It shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles (Zechariah 14:16).

I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God (Revelation 22:1-3).
