I notice that Israelis are comparing Pres. Donald Trump with King Cyrus saying that Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem being the capital of the world is the same as Cyrus’ calling to restore Jerusalem.
One such Israeli group has minted a silver coin to commemorate Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem which he announced December 6th 2017.(The date equates to 12/6=666)
Christian Zionists believe in a rebuilt Jewish Temple. Do they realise that the whole book of Hebrews was written AGAINST such a return to the Temple? Also that Galatians was also written to come against the return to Judaism by Christians?
If God wants a Temple in Jerusalem then there is no need for Jesus or for the Church which is His body…or Temple.
In this day in which we live we are seeing Jesus usurped again by those who say they are Jews and are not. We are also again seeing the betrayal of Jesus by his trusted disciple Judas Iscariot. Today most of the Christian Church supports Israel and the Jews rather than Jesus. Of course we as believers love all people. But we are not called to support what they do if it is contrary to Jesus.
Jerusalem in Palestine is in bondage with her children and Paul said she and her child are to be cast out.
Gal 4:24 “….For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar—
Gal 4:25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children—
Gal 4:26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Gal 4:30 Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON, FOR THE SON OF THE BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREEWOMAN.”
Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.
Believers in Jesus are not of Jerusalem over there in the Middle East. We are of the Jerusalem above…the Jerusalem that is free. The Jerusalem below is doomed to be cast out. Supporting her and her children in their quest to usurp Jesus as King and to usurp His body/church’ role as His dwelling place and Temple is a BETRAYAL of Jesus.
Do not join with them…for their blood will be on your hands if you do.
