Jerusalem-future capital of the world-by Alan Franklin

Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives

The Temple Mount

Israel is God’s special land-and Jerusalem is the future world capital!


King David established Jerusalem as Israel’s capital around 1000BC

  • The word Jerusalem is found 811 times in 764 Bible verses. It is not found once in The Qur’an. 
  •  This doesn’t stop the Islamics saying Jerusalem is their third holiest city.
  •  Jerusalem is in the eye of the storm – which is now breaking

  • So why is Jerusalem the world’s most important city?
  • Genesis 22:2 – (it is)a particular place chosen by God
  • “And He said, ‘Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah; and offer there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.’”
  • That’s why that area is so coveted by Satan.

  • God’s names for the Holy City
  • Zion, City of God; City of Truth; The Lord our Righteousness; City of The Great Kings, Ariel, the Lord will Provide; The Lord will be Seen; City of Peace; Holy Mountain; City of Righteousness, City of David; Navel of The Earth; the Capitol; Mountain of The Lord of Hosts; City of Gold; Light of The World; Holy Temple; Valley of Vision; Beautiful View; Joy of All The Earth; City of Praise; Source Stone; City of Jubilee; City of Gathering; Pure Place;
  • Eternal Flame; Gate of My People; City of Joy; Great Among The Nations; Utmost of Beauty; Oasis of Security; Tower of Strength; Faithful City; Sublime City; Salem, the City; The Throne of God; The Lord is There.

  • For The Lord has chosen Zion –He has destined it for His habitation; Psalm 132; 13
  • If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. Psalm 137; 5.
  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Psalm 122;6.

  • Jerusalem will be the seat of our Lord’s government in the millennium.
  • Jesus will reign as king of the world from Mt. Zion in Jerusalem (Isaiah 24:23 and Zechariah 14:9). The Redeemed, in their glorified bodies, will help Him with His reign by serving worldwide as administrators, judges, and spiritual tutors to those who enter the kingdom in the flesh — and to their children (Daniel 7:18,27; Jeremiah 3:15; Luke 19:11-17).

  • There will be no heavenly New York or Toronto, currently great cities. There will be both a millennial Jerusalem and a heavenly, new Jerusalem.
  • “Upon Zion, My holy mountain” in Psalm 2:6 refers to the earthly, rebuilt and elevated Jerusalem where God will enthrone His King (Messiah) after the defeat of the world’s armies in the campaign of Armageddon
