Jerusalem a Burdensome Stone

Extra, Extra read all about it! Just exactly what are we reading about on a day to day basis? There are news outlets that tell the truth and then there are news outlets that produce fake news. Currently the front page news is pushing North Korea, the Russia mess, the Clintons, everything is Israel's fault and how to figure out a way to blame all of this on Trump. However there is something much more significant going on. Do you know what this could be?

In Isaiah 17:1 NASB The oracle concerning Damascus.
"Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city And will become a fallen ruin.

Damascus has been heavily destroyed but there are still people living there, however Damascus is a place of contention. Damascus to this day is being destroyed little by little but one day it will be completely destroyed to the point that no one will be able to live there. Israel gets blamed for many things below is an example of just that. You have a blast that occurred near Damascus and the source was from an unnamed person. Then it moves to Israel bombed near Damascus and then finally Syria took claims on the blast that occurred near Damascus.

  1. 'Huge' blasts near Damascus airport blamed on Israeli strike
  2. Israeli jets bombed site close to Damascus airport, reports say
  3. Syria Claims Israeli Strike on Military Base Near Damascus

So why all the confusion of who said, who did and so forth, because it does not matter what is going on Israel will always be a sore thumb to someone and Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone.

Zacharie 12:1-3 NASB Thus declares the Lord who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, 2 "Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. 3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

The news articles below will show how upset people are about the decision President Trump will make about Jerusalem and Israel.

  1. Hamas calls for 'intifada' in response to Trump's Jerusalem bid
  3. Abbas warns US against moving embassy to Jerusalem

Today an announcement was made by President Trump, of the United States, that the United States will recognize Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Does this not fit perfectly with Zechariah that "Jerusalem will be a heavy stone for all the peoples". He also spoke about the embassy being moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This shows that we support Israel. President Trump also spoke about peace and security. These are words straight from the bible, and an awesome time we live in.

Peace will not come to the Middle East, Israel, or Jerusalem until; "I have consecrated My King on Zion, My holy mountain." 7 I will declare the Lord's decree: He said to Me, "You are My Son; today I have become Your Father 8 Ask of Me,and I will make the nations Your inheritance and the ends of the earth Your possession. Psalm 2:6 HCSB".

Psalm 24:1 HCSB The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord; 2 for He laid its foundation on the seas and established it on the rivers... 9 Lift up your heads, you gates! Rise up, ancient doors! Then the King of glory will come in. 10 Who is He, this King of glory? The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.....

Revelation 11:15 HCSB The seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He will reign forever and ever!

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of the Messiah, and they will reign with Him for 1,000 years.

The pieces are falling into place. The ushering in of the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus, is what we are witnessing now. The above scriptures tell us that the King of Glory, Kingdom of our Lord, and the King must be on Zion, Jerusalem. This will not come through peace and security of man, it will come through the reigning of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Christ Jesus is coming are you ready?
