This is what the Lord says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”
Zechariah 8:3
New International Version (NIV)

      We hear much condemnation of Israel in our time.  This is not surprising to anyone who knows the Bible.  The amazing prophecies of thousands of years ago should be enough to turn all eyes upon Jerusalem in reverence and awe.   Yet, as predicted in books of the Old Testament, Jerusalem has become a source of contention to many nations.  The time of settlement of this dispute appears to be close at hand.

        Many nations are turning against Israel and this is their mistake.  God will protect Israel and those who condemn the nation will face judgement and ruin.  If you think of "Zion" with negativity then perhaps it is time for you to research the matter.  Christ will one day rule from his throne in the Holy City of Jerusalem.   The lines have been drawn.  Which side are you on?

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”

1 Peter 2:6
New International Version (NIV)

      And so ends the 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.  My A to Z Reflections post for this blog will appear on Sunday May 3rd.
