OPERATION:  JERUSALEM
WHY SHOULD CHRISTIANS SUPPORT JERUSALEM?
by Mike D. Evans
On June 7th, 1967, the city of Jerusalem was reunited for the first time since its partition in 1948.  On June 14, 1967, the rubble was cleared from the Western Wall Square.  Once again, the holiest place for all Jews was open, and all were invited to visit.  It
was estimated that 200,000 Israelis visited the Western Wall, though they had to pass through six police barriers to reach the site.

As we approach the 37th anniversary of this momentous event, the Jews are again faced with the prospect of their beloved city being divided for the sake of appeasement.  Israel faces not only the bias of the entire Arab world, and many in the European
Union, it faces unwarranted bias from our own U.S. State Department's refusal to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

And yet more than 3000 years ago, G-D told King David: 

"... I have chosen Jerusalem, that My Name might be there:  and have chosen David to be over my people Israel."  (II Chron. 6:6)

WHY SHOULD CHRISTIANS SUPPORT JERUSALEM?

*  Because G-D does!

"He claims Jerusalem as His own."  (II Chron. 37:7)  Jerusalem is the only city for which G-D commands us to pray.  
(Psalm 122:6).

The Holy Scriptures reveals that Zion (Jerusalem) is to be the very seat of the Messiah's earthly reign. (Zechariah 7:3).

*  When we support Jerusalem, we are preparing for our L-RD's coming!

When we pray for Jerusalem, we are saying, "Maranatha, come Messiah!"

"When the L-RD shall build up Zion, then shall He appear in His glory!"  (Psalm 102:16)

*Because G-D's Word is true!

"The Law will go out from Zion, and the Word of the L-RD from Jerusalem" (Isaiah 2:3).

*  G-D will bless those who bless Jerusalem!

"The L-RD shall bless thee out of Zion:  and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life"  (Psalm 128:5).

*  G-D says we are to comfort Jerusalem.

"Comfort ye, comfort ye My people saith your G-D.  Speak comfort to Jerusalem" (Isaiah 40:1).

*  Because G-D Almighty has preserved Jerusalem.

The city of Jerusalem has been leveled to the ground five times.  Her people have been carried away captive, yet Jerusalem
rises from the rubble because G-D has ordained it through the centuries! (Amos 9:14-15).

*  G-D wrote His Name in Jerusalem!

"I have chosen Jerusalem that My Name might be there"  (II Chronicles 6:6).

* When you pray for the peace of Jerusalem, you are praying a commanded blessing on your life!

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee"  (Psalm 122:6).

When you stand on G-D's Word concerning Jerusalem, you are binding Satan.  (Isaiah 14, Satan declares he would
battle G-D Almighty from Jerusalem.)

"You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely anti-Zionist.  And I say, let the truth ring forth from
the highest mountaintops.  Let it echo through the valleys of G-D's green earth.  When people criticize Zionism, they mean
Jews.  Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land."  (Martin Luther King)
