YHVH’s Eternal Promise of Jerusalem to the nation of Israel
Psalms 122:6 “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, ‘Prosperity to your houses!'”
Isaiah 2:1-4 “In the days to come, the Mountain of the Temple of YHVH shall tower above the mountains and be lifted higher than the hills. All the nations will stream to it, peoples without number will come to it; and they will say: ‘ Come let us go up to the mountain of YHVH, to the Temple of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths; since the Law will go out from Zion, and the Oracle of YHVH from Jerusalem’. He will wield authority over the nations and adjudicate between many peoples; these will hammer their swords into ploughshares, their spears into sickles. Nation will not lift up sword against nation. There will be no more training for war.”
Nations will strive to know and learn the Ways of the God of Jacob. Surely these are the same ‘Ways’ which God was so insistent upon for Jacob and His descendants (the Jews and Israelites), to maintain – which is Judaism?
Zechariah 2:4-5,10-12 “YHVH then showed me four smiths. And I said: ‘What are these coming to do?’ He said to me: ‘Those are the horns which have so scattered Judah that no one has dared to raise his head; but these have come to lay them low (to strike down the horns of the nations who lifted their hands against the land of Judah, in order to scatter it) Then, raising my eyes, I saw a vision. It was this: there was a man with a measuring line in his hand.”
Zechariah 2:10-12 “Up, up, and leave the land of the north – It is YHVH Who speaks – For, to the four winds of Heaven I have scattered you – it is YHVH who speaks – Zion, up! Dweller in Babylon, flee! For YHVH Sabaoth says this – He whose Glory has sent me here- as regards the nations who despoiled you, for whoever touches you touches the apple of my eye.”
Zechariah 2:14 “Sing, rejoice Daughter of Zion (Israel) for I am coming to dwell in the middle of you – it is YHVH Who speaks – Many nations will join YHVH in that Day – they will become His People – but YHVH will hold Judah as His Portion in the Holy Land and again make Jerusalem His very Own. Let all mankind be silent before YHVH.”
Can this be the Blessing which He has promised unto Abraham? God’s Kingdom of Peace on earth? – restored unto Israel! God dwelling with humanity. Peace enshrined – which eluded mankind for 6000 years!
Zechariah 8:3-8 “YHVH Sabaoth says this: I am coming back to Zion and shall dwell in the middle of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be called Faithful City and the mountain of YHVH Sabaoth, the Holy Mountain … Now I am going to save My people from the countries of the East and from the countries of the West. I will bring them back to live inside Jerusalem. They shall be My people and I will be their God in faithfulness and integrity”
Zechariah 14:9,16 “And YHVH will be King of the whole world. When that day comes, YHVH will be unique and His Name unique. All who survive of all the nations that have marched against Jerusalem will go up year by year to worship the King YHVH Sabaoth, and to keep the feast of Tabernacles.”
The Jewish Feast of Succot (Tabernacles) is one of the seven Great Feasts of YHVH (as observed in Judaism to this day). It depicts the Joyous Time when YHVH sets up His World Rule from Jerusalem, after His Return in Glory to save Israel from annihilation in the War of Gog and Magog (Armageddon – Ezek. 38, Zech 12 – 14) and to Judge the nations.
