Each year, the Israelis set aside a day to celebrate the reunification
of the city of Jerusalem which actually took place during the Six Day
War in 1967 when the Jewish state was under attack from all directions.
Many claim it was the hand of God that gave Israel the victory in a
short-lived war, the Six Day War, and allow the IDF to recapture the
Temple Mount and reunite the city of Jerusalem after almost 2000 years.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Israeli celebration of the reunification of the city of Jerusalem
each year on Jerusalem Day is tangible evidence that Bible prophecy has
been fulfilled and will be fulfilled in the future.
Israeli officials and many world leaders say it was miraculous how the
Jewish people were able to reunite their capital city of Jerusalem
during the Six Day War in 1967. The IDF led by General Uzi Narkiss
entered the old city of Jerusalem via the Lion Gate and went onto the
Temple Mount for the first time in 2000 years. It was at that moment,
the Jews realized they had reunified their holy city and tears of joy
were shed even by rough, tough Israeli paratroopers.
God promised the Jewish people He would give them Jerusalem, the place
where He will dwell among His chosen people, the Jewish people forever,
Psalm 132:13-14. That is a prophecy that has been partially fulfilled,
the Jews have Jerusalem but the Messiah is yet to come to dwell among
His people. Before Jesus Christ returns to the earth, the city of
Jerusalem will be a center of controversy, Zechariah 12:2 and a burden
to those who want this holy city for their own, Zechariah 12:3.
At the end of the seven years of judgment called the Tribulation Period,
Jesus will build His Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Zechariah
1:16 and 6:12 and He will rule and reign from this holy city for 1000
years, Zechariah 6:13 and II Samuel 7. Jerusalem will be the
headquarters for the Lord's Kingdom here on the earth forever, II Samuel
The celebration of Jerusalem Day every year is indeed tangible evidence
that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled and will be fulfilled.
