Now it came about… Rezin the king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah… went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not conquer it. Isa. 7:1 NASB
There is only one place that God has chosen to be “Immanuel’s Place”, and that place is Jerusalem. Not Springfield, Tulsa, or even Denver! Jerusalem! The Scriptures are clear that God alone is the owner of this piece of real estate, and He is quite capable of defending it.
As the sand in the hour glass gets to it’s final grains, nations will verge on Jerusalem and try to take His place from Him. They think it will be easy! Imagine that! Nations will surround Jerusalem, but God will defend it. What nation on the earth would be foolish enough to pick a fight with the Lord over His place? What weapons will they use?
They do not know that there is no weapon of mass destruction deadlier than the sword that proceeds from the mouth of Him who was and is and will always be. Listen..
From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. Rev. 19:15
So… say to the people that belong to God, “Take care and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted…” Isa. 7:4 Many will wage war against Jerusalem, but they will not conquer it.
Beloved, today an enemy may come and try to conquer you too. But our God has laid claim to you… you belong to Him… and He is quite capable of defending you. So… take care and be calm!
