Jerusalem after THE
Again the word of the LORD of hosts
came to me, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion
with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
He is a jealous God. This is repeated over
and over to the Jews. They belonged to Him but yet they left Him for
another. This would make any bride or groom jealous.
Thus saith the LORD; I am returned
unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem:
God will dwell in Jerusalem. This is
referring to the Second Coming.
… and Jerusalem shall be called a
city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell
in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very
age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in
the streets thereof.
Jerusalem shall be called: “a city of truth”
“the mountain of the Lord of hosts” will be
called “the holy mountain”
Old men and olde women shall dwell in safety
to a ripe old age, Boys and girls playing in the streets
Is this descriptive of the “current”
Jerusalem? It will be after the return of Christ.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it
be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days,
should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts. Thus
saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east
country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall
dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be
their God, in truth and in righteousness.
Jesus will also make this promise in Matthew
he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall
gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the
He will gather the Jews from all over the
world and they will live within Jerusalem. There will be a gathering after
the events of the second coming.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let
your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth
of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of
the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. For before these
days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there
any peace to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I
set all men every one against his neighbour. But now I will not be unto the
residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts.
The conditions of the way it was before and
now the way it will be.
For the seed shall be prosperous;
the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and
the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this
people to possess all these things. And it shall come to pass, that as ye were
a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I
save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be
For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As
I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the
LORD of hosts, and I repented not: So again have I thought in these days to
do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.
These are the things that ye shall
do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of
truth and peace in your gates: And let none of you imagine evil in your
hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things
that I hate, saith the LORD.

And the word of the LORD of hosts
came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth
month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast
of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful
feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It
shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants
of many cities: And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another,
saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of
hosts: I will go also. Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to
seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In
those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all
languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is
a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
In the End Days, people will flock to the
Jews wanting to join them in prayer to seek God, because God is with them.
