The battle of Jerusalem


Rabbi David Samson

23 Cheshvan 5763
Do you think that the current "struggle" over Jerusalem is a prelude to Zachariah, chap. 12 ? Shalom!
In chapter 12, Zachariah tells us how in the end of days all of the nations will wage war against Jerusalem. The establishment of the state of Israel is obviously the first stage in a redemptive process that will culminate with the comming of the true massiah. Replacing western civilization with the jewish alternative is the root for the armegadon aluded to in this chapter.We hope and pray that the process will be a peaceful one.
