Jerusalem Has Always Been the LORD's

Reader comment on item: Claiming Jerusalem is in the Koran
in response to reader comment: The Christian Bible says God sent His Son down to close His Real Estate Business.

If we are going to belabor WHO is supposed to own Yerushalayim, let us go to the mnemonic provided by the header of the previous post: "The Christian Bible says God sent His Son down to close His Real Estate Business." In fact, no one except the LORD the Almighty Sovereign can claim full ownership of Jerusalem. From the history down to this time, all others have been either tenants or squatters.

The Jewish house of David commenced the beginning of the new order of who will own Jerusalem, history recording a process that is yet to be totally fulfilled. Eventually, just like the Biblical narrative that has the owner returning to his vineyard and expelling the rebellious tenants, that return will be established by the return of the Jewish Yeshua HaMashiach as the Regent-Owner, along with invited guest and joints heirs to the kingdom. This will require the short-in-coming purge of all unrighteousness within Jerusalem and Zion as the Son prepares his throne for the ages to come.

I will utterly consume all things from off the land, says the LORD. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, says the LORD. I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests; And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham; And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him. Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.(Zech 1 portion)

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for His only Son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.(Zech 12 portion)

So, if one reads the Holy Bible and remembers that the kingdom will be filled with believers of both Jewish and Gentile nations, only the rule of Almighty God, and not the rationale of rebellious humanity, determines who owns Jerusalem and the kingdom of God as established in the Middle East.

But, remember this, due to the covenant with Abraham, it is the children of Abraham through Isaac that the promise was made and through whom the promise will be kept.
