  Prophetic Prospective
On the day that Israel marks the 42nd anniversary of the reuniting of the city of Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed to never divide the city of Jerusalem and he pledged to keep the city as the capital of Israel united and under Israeli sovereignty. Netanyahu also said that Jerusalem has always been a Jewish city, will always be a Jewish city and that it will never again be partitioned or divided.

The reunification of Jerusalem took place during the Six Day War, 42 years ago, and since then, Netanyahu added, only under Israeli sovereignty has Jerusalem ensured the freedom of religion and and freedom of access for the three religions to the holy places.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jerusalem Day, marking the reunification of this holy city 42 years ago, is a reminder of the past, the present, and the prophetic significance to the most important city in the world - according to Bible prophecy.

Parades, political speeches, and fireworks marked the 42nd anniversary of Jerusalem being reunited during the Six Day War in 1967. The recapturing of Jerusalem, after almost 2000 years, allowed the Jewish people to return to the city and to return the city to Jewish control which first began 3000 years ago when the Jewish King David captured this Jebusite stronghold and named it the political capital of the Jewish people (II Samuel 5). King David made Jerusalem the spiritual capital of the Jewish people when he brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem as recorded in II Samuel 6. Down through the centuries, Jerusalem has been in and out of the hands of the Jewish people, but King David did receive a promise from God, the Davidic Covenant, that Jerusalem would be the eternal undivided capital of the Jewish people forever (II Samuel 7).

The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah foretold of today when Jerusalem would be a city of controversy (Zechariah 12:2). However, the prophet also wrote that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, would return and build His temple in Jerusalem where He would rule and reign forever (Zechariah 1:16, 6:12-13).

Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
  Further Study
In Zechariah 1:12 we see the phrase, "the angel of the Lord". That phrase is always a "theophany", a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus Christ. Jesus will say to Zechariah three significant things about Jerusalem.

In verse 14 the Lord says He is "jealous for Jerusalem". The Hebrew for "jealous" is "aggressively possessive". The Lord has chosen Jerusalem for His eternal abode, the place to dwell among His people, the Jewish people, forever. Therefore, He is "aggressively possessive" of the city.

In verse 15 He says He is "sore displeased" with those who are "at ease" in Jerusalem. The Hebrew refers to those who are "arrogantly secure" in their control of Jerusalem. Those who have that control are the Palestinian Muslim people of today.

Verse 16 tells us that, one day, Jesus will return to Jerusalem and will build “His house” in it, His Temple. The city of Jerusalem is set aside for the Lord's program, which is the reason He is "aggressively possessive" of Jerusalem.
