Who Owns Jerusalem
Friends, I felt God leading me to encourage all my readers and say fear not but buckle up, we are about to see the mighty hand of God working in this world. I am going to digress from my normal posts to look at prophecy and world events. It is not my job to convince you of what I think but merely point out observations and scripture. So here are some facts:
1) Islam is not from God because they hate Jews and Israel. Isaiah 43:3 KJV
For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
God gave Israel a lot of land and through the years, nations have been forcing Israel to give up their land for peace. Below are two maps showing Israel’s land under King David and now. I do not necessarily agree with some teachings of some of these map creators, but the maps say a lot.
If you studied the blood moons in the past, you know it always was a warning to Israel. Then there were wars in Israel and when the war was over, 1948 Israel was recognized as a nation around the world. The Belford Declaration was the world’s document but scripture was and is God’s declaration.
Jerusalem was in the land of Canaan and after Joseph and when Moses helped with the exodus out of Egypt, God led Moses to Canaan but Moses could not go into the land. Joshua led Israel into Canaan as God gave Joshua and Israel victory over the Canaanites and Israel conquered the land God gave them. The land was divided to the 12 tribes / 12 sons of Jacob. Your can read who received what parcel in Joshua 14 – Joshua 22. The possession of the land was God fulfilling his promise from Exodus 13:5 fulfilled in Joshua 21:43-45.
Canaan originally was made up of Jebusites, Amorites, Hittites, Petizzites, and several other of the “ites” brothers. To the students of God’s word, we know these “ite” brothers were ungodly and God removes them from the land.
The term Isil that President Obama uses and his staff, instead of Isis is important. ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant where ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Both of these groups reject Israel and therefore reject the God of the scriptures. That means they also reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. But President Obama saying Isil meaning Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant means President Obama refers to the land of the Islamic State without any land for Israel. God gave Israel the land and President Obama says the land without Israel which means President Obama rejects Israel’s God given right to the land. The land under the Levant is pictured in this map below.
You can read more about the Levant online. But this map clearly shows no Israel. Is President Obama sending a message to the Islamic State that he supports the Levant?
The fourth series of blood moons came and went and if the pattern holds as the past, we will see war in the middle east in 2016 and Israel will be involved and it is my personal opinion is that God is going to provide all of the temple mount to Israel. Could be through war or earthquakes or whatever God decides. But make no doubt about it, Revelation says there will be a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem on the site of the old temple of Solomon in the tribulation. Jews are already preparing the temple objects and when we see all this come to pass, we know what Paul told the church in:
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
In the meantime, stand fast in the power of God’s might. Share the Gospel of salvation today because our time is short on this earth. God Bless.
Until next time.
