Jerusalem and the End Times


The status of Jerusalem in the last days, as stated in Zechariah Chapter 12, is said to be a burdensome stone burdening all nations. It’s going to be the source of the final conflict. 2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a...
