  • Today there is a lot of interest in the Holy Land. Shows like this are popular because of the biblical history there, rich as it is. God prophesied that He would make Jerusalem a “boiling pot” in the last days. The worlds focus will continue to be on the middle east and specifically on Jerusalem. The drama builds as many look for Messiah to return or to come soon. It’s important that while we wait for Him, we do NOT ignore His first coming. What He accomplished at that time by His atonement is what prepares us for what is to come. We need to trust Him as Savior and Lord so that we can have forgiveness of sins and peace with God (individually) while we await His return which will bring peace to the earth. Shalom

    Mark.

    Yes, the major focus of Jesus’ preaching and teaching was God’s kingdom or heavenly government as prophecied by Daniel (Daniel 2:44) as well as Isaiah (Isaiah 11:1-9).

    That kingdom will soon come and reign from the heavens (Matthew 4:17) during its millennial and messianic rule (Matthew 6:10), and bring grand blessings, including worldwide peace, to all meek persons in all the nations (Isaiah 25:8; 35:5,6; Psalm 37:10,11; Revelation 21:3,4).

    Mark you said “God prophesied that He would make Jerusalem a “boiling pot” in the last days. ”
    – so your god is a vicious thug with a crazy and cruel torturing streak.

    No thanks. Your “god” should be incarcerated.
