Breaking Israel News: “And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’” (Zechariah 2:5)

“Israeli security officials are deploying an additional 1,000 Israeli Police and Border Patrol forces in Jerusalem due to the recent escalation of violence and terror in the capital.

Security forces are expected to work alongside the Tax Authority, the Bailiff’s Office and Jerusalem’s Municipality to help calm intense rioting in East Jerusalem. Forces plan to operate in three main areas of the city and Jerusalem police estimate that the forces will be needed for at least one month.

Tensions boiled over in Jerusalem after Wednesday’s terror attack, which killed three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun and injured eight others. The terrorist was shot and killed by police when he attempted to flee the scene.”

Opinion: Zechariah’s prophecy declares why Jerusalem will be the center of the world’s attention in the last days – God Himself will be there.

In Zechariah 12:1-9 we get a preview of the last days just prior to the return of Christ. The rapture has already happened and the armies of the 4 power blocs (see Bible Prophecy 101 chapter 6)  of the last days are surrounding Jerusalem:

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

That day, mentioned 5 times in chapter 12, refers to the future battle of Armageddon, where Israel is delivered by the Lord:

In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.  And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their God.’”

Judah’s military victory is assured as God protects Jerusalem like a shield:

In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem.

The Lord will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall not become greater than that of Judah.  In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the Lord before them.  It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: They shall prosper that love thee.” Psalm 122:6

YNet News: “Jerusalem is not the only city under attack by terrorists; other cities across the world are, as well. But the offensive in Jerusalem is supported by the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Abu Mazen, who glorifies the murderers and embraces the group they belong to – Hamas,” said Netanyahu.

Netanyahu used the occasion to remind world powers of the threat posed by terrorism. “Against these acts we face international flaccidity. But there is no such weakness here. We will stand strong for our rights and our obligations to protect our capital.”

Opinion: Abu Mazen, is none other than the PA’s chief Edomite, Mahmoud Abbas. Mazen is the name he used when he w as the chief financier of the 1971 Olympic massacre of 11 Israeli athletes.

The Palestinians celebrated the death of a Jewish infant girl in Jerusalem on Wednesday. A Palestinian motorist with a history of anti-Israel violence slammed his car into a crowded train station in Jerusalem on Wednesday, killing a three-month-old baby girl and wounding eight people in what police called a terror attack.

The baby-killers were upset over Jews daring to buy houses in certain parts of Jerusalem called Judenrein, or cleansed of Jews.

YNet News: “Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suggested Jews should be banned from a holy site revered by both Jews and Muslims after hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza participated in a Hamas-organized rally Friday over Jerusalem’s flashpoint al-Aqsa mosque, the scene of recurring clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinians in recent days.”

Opinion: The blessing given to Jacob, whom God renamed Israel, is the root of Esau’s (Abbas) hatred today:

To Jacob: “May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed” Genesis 27:28-29

To Esau: “Your dwelling will be away from the earth’s richness, away from the dew of heaven above. You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his yoke from off your neck” Genesis 27:39-40.

Esau’s hatred festered over the blessing:

“Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob” Genesis 27:41.

Isaiah 60:14 speaks to the future fulfillment of Jacob and and Esau’s feud through their descendants:

“The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LordZion of the Holy One of Israel.”
