Zion is the Seat of the Messiah’s earthly Reign

Another significant reason why Christians should rejoice in Israel’s physical restoration and strongly support her continued existence in the Middle East is the prophesied future of her ancient and modern capital city, Jerusalem. Holy writ reveals that Zion is to be the very seat of the Messiah’s earthly reign. The nations on earth will come up to visit Jerusalem when Jesus rules from the holy city as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! This is revealed in several Scriptures:

“Many people shall come and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.’ For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3). 

“Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts; Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet home, A tabernacle that will not be taken down; Not one of its stakes will ever be removed, Nor will any of its cords be broken.” (Isaiah 33:20) 

“Thus says the Lord, ‘I will return to Zion, And will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, The Mountain of the Lord of hosts, The Holy Mountain.’” (Zechariah 8:3) 

 “I will not give sleep to mine eyes, Or slumber to mine eyelids, Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the Mighty One of Jacob…For Your servant David’s sake, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed…For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place. ‘This is my resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it’” (Psalm 132:4-5, 10, 13-14). “Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and MOVE NO MORE; nor shall the children of wickedness oppress them any more, as previously” (2 Samuel 7:10).
