Disturbing news reaches us virtually every day of fierce conflict in the Middle East that has drawn in both the Western Allies and Russia with their very opposing objectives. Indiscriminate violence and destruction have provoked refugees to flood into Europe causing huge humanitarian problems. The root cause of open warfare is enmity between Arab peoples of different sects and a repressive regime. Stubborn and enduring issues however are the enmity of all Arab sects towards Jewish peoples, the existence of the nation of Israel and their right to live in the Holy Land. Attempted peace negotiations always founder over the underlying question of who has the right to sovereignty over Jerusalem. Jerusalem’s name means “city of peace”. The current reality is that Jerusalem is the focal point of insoluble contention and hostility. God’s word predicted that in the last times Jerusalem would be a “burdensome stone” and the cause of such enmity between nations (Zechariah 12:3).
The fact is the land belongs to God and He has determined who should live in His land. He has an abiding interest in Jerusalem and has determined its glorious future as the capital city of His Kingdom on earth and the place for the throne of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, when he returns to the earth to rule the world in righteousness and peace from Jerusalem (Zechariah 8:3, Psalm 2:6, Isaiah 9:6-7, Luke 1:32-33).Â
