Israelis marked Jerusalem Day with celebration and controversy

May 25, 2006

Yom Yerushalayim, Hebrew for Jerusalem Day, is the day that Israelis celebrate the liberation of Jerusalem 39 years ago and the reunification of the eternal city of the state of Israel.

For the last 39 years there have been celebrations in Jerusalem that include parades, family gatherings, a visit to the Western Wall, and the politicians making their speeches to commemorate the battle for Jerusalem during the Six Day War in 1967. During this festive celebration, the controversy surrounding Jerusalem continues and intensifies as the Palestinians claim Jerusalem is and will be the capital of their state, Palestine.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Even as Israelis celebrate the reunification of Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day this year, the controversy described for Jerusalem in the Last Days according to Bible prophecy comes better into focus. When the Israeli Defense Force paratroopers led by General Marcus stormed the lion gate of the old city of Jerusalem and rushed onto the Temple Mount, for the first time in almost 2,000 years, the city of Jerusalem was once again reunited East and West.

Israel's first PM David Ben-Gurion said that Jerusalem is the reunited, undivided, capital city of Israel and the Jewish people. Every PM of Israel has stated since that time that Jerusalem will never be divided again. Therein is the controversy that will surround Jerusalem and only intensify as we grow closer to the Last Days.

The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah wrote that Jerusalem would be a cup of trembling, that's Zechariah 12:2. And it means that those who control Jerusalem in the Last Days will become intoxicated with power over God's chosen city. Zechariah 1:14-16 says that the Lord is aggressively possessive of Jerusalem and he will someday come to Jerusalem to build His Temple.

Jerusalem Day 2006 in celebration and controversy is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
