Is it the End of the World?

Is it the End of the World?

O, Jerusalem

What a fascinating time. From my perspective, the fulfillment of Bible prophecy is heating up to unprecedented heights. Adding spice to the mix is the growing number of skeptics…from within Christendom. Witness the Emergent leadership; they have a different eschatological worldview, and believe much of the Bible’s predictive prophecy is not valid, or is at least misinterpreted by some of us.

I’d like to focus on three prophecies over the next few days, and discuss the first one today, the “City of Peace.”

Of all the dynamic cities in the world, why would Jerusalem be a virtual obsession of the international community? The status of Jerusalem has become a growing problem for diplomats—even whole continents—the world over.

Dave Hunt once mused about this, asking for an explanation for this phenomenon, apart from the Bible.

If, for example, one were to read the last few chapters of the book of Zechariah, one would notice that a titanic battle is fought for Jerusalem, in what the Bible calls the last days.

Of course, many readers dismiss this as metaphor, or perhaps relegate the prophecies to the distant past. However, notice that “all” the nations come against Jerusalem. The Lord then throws down a gauntlet and prepares to act to defend His people.

Dave Hunt asked a delicious question: why do we find ourselves in a time in which Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem is a point of contention for so many nations?

Have you ever thought about this?

There won’t be a test. But there is a point. You’ll see.
