Why Is Jerusalem So Important? (With Greg Laurie)

The city of Jerusalem –
isn’t it amazing that this tiny little city creates such a stir? More wars have been fought at her gates than any other city, even though her name means “City of Peace.” Why this hostility toward Jerusalem? Because she plays a key role in God’s plan today and tomorrow.

• Jerusalem is the nerve center of the world geographically.
• Jerusalem is the salvation center of the world spiritually.
• Jerusalem is the storm center of the world prophetically.
• Jerusalem is the glory center of the world ultimately.
Jerusalem is the city of the past, the present and the future.

1 Jerusalem is the city of the past. This city was the capital of Israel under King David. David’s son Solomon built the first temple, and the Shekinah glory came. Jesus was crucified there as well.

2 Jerusalem is the city of the present. When the Jews formed a nation on May 14, 1948, it was a modern-day miracle. And more specifically, a fulfilled prophecy that set the prophetic clock ticking. Never has a nation been able to maintain its national identity after being scattered for hundreds of years – until Israel!

3 Jerusalem is the city of the future. It is here that world history as we know it will end. Jerusalem with be at the center of the final conflict as the battle of Armageddon rages. The Lord will enter in through the East Gate and establish His kingdom. We are commanded in Scripture to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” God says of the Jewish people, and in effect, the nation Israel, “Whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye” (Zechariah 2:8 NLT). Essentially, He says, “Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession.”

That’s why we stand with the Jewish people and the nation Israel. We bless them and thank God for them.
