The FUTURE of JERUSALEM

 

JESUS tells His disciples:

Luke 21:20

King James Version

20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, 

then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.


What is the future of Jerusalem?

Why did the LORD weep?

Here's where the Holy Spirit led me to.

In the LORD's own words:

Luke 21:21-37

King James Version

21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; 

and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; 

and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

22 For these be the days of vengeance, 

that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

23 But woe unto them that are with child, 

and to them that give suck, 

in those days! 

for there shall be great distress in the land, 

and wrath upon this people.

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, 

and shall be led away captive into all nations: 

and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, 

until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, 

and in the moon, 

and in the stars; 

and upon the earth distress of nations, 

with perplexity; 

the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear

and for looking after those things 

which are coming on the earth

for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man 

coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, 

then look up, 

and lift up your heads; 

for your redemption draweth nigh.

29 And he spake to them a parable; 

Behold the fig tree, 

and all the trees;

30 When they now shoot forth, 

ye see and know of your own selves 

that summer is now nigh at hand.

31 So likewise ye, 

when ye see these things come to pass, 

know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

32 Verily I say unto you, 

This generation shall not pass away, 

till all be fulfilled.

33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: 

but my words shall not pass away.

34 And take heed to yourselves, 

lest at any time your hearts be overcharged 

with surfeiting, 

and drunkenness, 

and cares of this life, 

and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them 

that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, 

and pray always

that ye may be accounted worthy to escape 

all these things that shall come to pass, 

and to stand before the Son of man.

37 And in the day time 

he was teaching in the temple; 

and at night he went out, 

and abode in the mount 

that is called the mount of Olives.


That will be the destruction of the Jerusalem of old.

With God preparing for a NEW JERUSALEM.

Is it any wonder the LORD JESUS told His disciples:

Luke 24:47

King James Version

47 And that repentance and remission of sins 

should be preached in his name 

among all nations, 

beginning at Jerusalem.


The next post is on JESUS and JERUSALEM -- the war that is to be in Jerusalem -- as prophesied in the Old, and New Testament.
