Israel has practically been in the headlines every day in recent weeks since the nation has been under attack. Hamas, an Iran-backed terrorist organization, fired thousands of rockets into Israel, striking population centers. If it were not for the Iron Dome defense system which stopped 90% of those rockets, the damage would have been far worse. But what is it about Israel, and specifically Jerusalem, that draws the focus and attention of the entire world? The answer is quite simple. Israel occupies center stage in God’s drama of the ages. Take a look at history, and you will see that it turns out badly for any nation that raises its hand against Israel or the Jewish people. Nations such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and Rome, have turned against Israel and paid a price.
Jerusalem became the capital of Israel under King David and was actually known as the City of David. It was in Jerusalem that the first and second temples were built. Also, it was in Jerusalem at Mount Moriah, which is the area we know today as the Temple Mount, that Abraham went to offer his son Isaac to God. After the modern state of Israel was declared in 1948, a war of independence left Jerusalem divided, with Jordan maintaining control over the Old City, including the Temple Mount and most of the historic sites.
That is why the Bible tells us to pay attention to Jerusalem. Jesus said, “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near” (Luke 21:20). Speaking through the prophet Zechariah, God said, “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” (Zech. 12:2–3).
Today we have leaders like the president of Iran who frequently speak of wiping Israel off the map. You might dismiss this as ridiculous, but they are currently developing nuclear weapons in Iran. Therefore, Israel is in a very difficult situation, and they take these threats seriously. The Bible tells us that the final conflict of humanity will be fought over Jerusalem. It speaks of a large force, known as Magog, from the extreme north of Israel attacking her. Russia sits to the extreme north of Israel. So is Russia Magog? And it is very clear in pointing out that this will happen in the last days. But while no one can say with absolute certainty that Magog is Russia, this much we know: a force known as Magog from the north of Israel will attack her. And when they attack, God will step in and save Israel.
In the meantime, we need to be alert. We need to be awakened to the fact that Jesus Christ is returning to the earth very soon. In addition, we need to be praying for the peace of Jerusalem more than ever before, as the Word of God instructs us to do. Always remember this, the most important person in our lives was a Jew, the most important book in our lives was written by Jews, and the most important organization in our lives – the church — began with Jews. Amen!
