Jerusalem, the Burdensome Stone

As I watch America betray her only ally in the Middle East, it brings to mind a prophecy in the book of Zechariah. This prophecy talks about the nations of the world burdening themselves over the issue of Jerusalem, and how they are cut and deeply wounded by this. It talks about the people in the region staggering and disoriented because of Jerusalem.

Does this sound familiar to you?

It does to me.

For years, I have watched peace plan after peace plan founder on the rocks of Jerusalem. Every time the Palestinians were about to get 99.9% of everything they asked for, they would always demand Jerusalem – and fail to get anything. And everyone in the region, EVERYONE, focuses on Jerusalem.

Even Iran, that is so far away from Israel, that it’s hard to classify it as a part of the Middle East… Even Iran is focused on Jerusalem. They have a Jerusalem Day every year where they talk about destroying Israel and liberating Jerusalem. And, their elite special forces unit?

In America, they give their special forces units names like Delta Force, Navy SEALS and Green Berets. But, the Iranians don’t do that. They call their special forces unit Niru-ye Qods, or Jerusalem Force.

Are they insane?

Yes, and it’s an insanity that comes from God:

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.Zechariah 12:2-3

I call Jerusalem home. I lived there for 15 years, and it’s the one place on Earth that I love more than any other. But, I know that God will protect Jerusalem. So, my fear is for those of you living in countries that have burdened themselves with that place I call home. Your government has put you in harm’s way, and you should do something about that.

Bad times coming.

Are you ready?
