Jerusalem at the centre of our world – Zechariah 12

J

I’m just going to read one more scripture, and we’ll skip over Jeremiah 30 and go to Zechariah 12, if you can. Zechariah 12 says, The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: 2 “Behold, I will make...
