Who Really Has the Spiritual Rights to Jerusalem?

PURPOSE

Considering the fact that we have cleared the Jews of any blame for the crucifixion of Jesus (1) - an event that can only be blamed on religious fanatics (2) - we could never be considered anti Semites. How could we be? Jesus is Our Lord, Mary is Our Heavenly Mother, Paul was the Apostle of the Gentiles, and countless others original Christians were Jews. Therefore, the purpose of this document is not to fan the flames of anti-Semitism.

The purpose of this brief document is to illustrate how politics and denial obliterate even Holy history.


BACKGROUND  and  INTRODUCTION

The argument about who has the Spiritual Rights to Jerusalem has been going on since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, there should have never been any argument about it because the Holy Texts clearly indicate that only those who strive to live the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ have any claim to it.

Obviously, those who today claim to have a Divine Right to it, do not have it - that is, if we are going to believe the same Holy Texts they use to claim their rights.

To arbitrarily deny the Messianic Role of Jesus Christ - a role which is overwhelmingly confirmed by fulfilled prophecies (3) - simply is not a valid argument. Even the Muslim Qur'an acknowledges Jesus as having been sent by God the Father (4). 


DETAILS

Let us settle once and for all who Jerusalem belong to, who should rule it and live in it.

It is amazing how simple it is to determine who are the only ones who truly have the only legitimate claim to Jerusalem.  The greatness of its simplicity is only matched by the magnitude of its political incorrectness.

Without opening the floodgates of "fancy words" commonly used by "experts", "theologians" and "religious leaders" to confuse and impress the children of God, let us start from the beginning.

Starting with Abraham [from Genesis 11 on], then on to Moses [from Exodus 3 on], moving on to David [from 2 Samuel 2 on] and right on to Solomon.... specifically to the point where we read in 1 Kings 11:

[29] So it came to paste at that time, that Jeroboam went out of Jerusalem, and the prophet Ahias the Silonite, clad with a new garment, found him in the way: and they two were alone in the held. [30] And Ahias taking his new garment, wherewith he was clad, divided it into twelve parts:

[31] And he said to Jeroboam: Take to thee ten pieces: for thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: Behold I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give thee ten tribes. [32] But one tribe shall remain to him for the sake of my servant David, and Jerusalem the city, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel....  [35] But I will take away the kingdom out of his son's hand and will give thee ten tribes:

[36] And to his son I will give one tribe (Tribe of Judah), that there may remain a lamp for my servant David before me always in Jerusalem the city which I have chosen, that my name might be there. [37] And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign over all that thy soul desireth, and thou shalt be king over Israel (the other eleven Tribes).

So we see that the straight lineage coming from Abraham through David hit a junction during the Kingdom of Solomon: One continuos lineage - the Tribe of Judah - was kept by the Lord for the sake of His servant David, while those who continued the other path at the junction, the Ten Tribes, were no longer part of the original lineage and eventually dissolved into the world population.

What do we see here? We see that because most had rejected the original path given by God, they lost the privileges associated with the original lineage.

Now Jesus comes into the scene. His life is such a fulfillment of the Prophecies identifying Him as the Messiah (3) that not even the most intelligent human being could have written the New Testament in a manner to better justify Jesus Messianic role.

Here we come to a second key junction: many Jews, but also - just as the Prophets announced - many people from other nations (gentiles) accept Jesus as our Messiah. At this key junction, those who accepted Jesus as the Messiah continued the lineage which, for the sake of His servant David, was kept by God. As it happened to the Ten Tribes, the Jewish Establishment of the time, which rejected the Messianic role of Jesus, had to leave Jerusalem once it was destroyed - as Jesus announced - and eventually dissolved into the world population - probably integrating into the communities descending from the Ten Tribes. Those are today's Jews.

Therefore, it should be crystal clear to anyone who is not spiritually blind or submerged in denial, that only those Christians - who compose Jesus Family (5) - and not those who just signed up in a Christian Church for whatever reason - should be the legitimate claimants of Jerusalem.

The Jews who did not (and still do not) accept Jesus as the Messiah and were dissolved into the world population, have no more right to the Davidic lineage than Jeroboam and his subjects had.

They can claim all they want, but the overwhelming Biblical and historical facts obliterate their claims.


CONCLUSION

Of course, things will remain as they are; the non Davidic lineage will keep Jerusalem until the End of These Times. Once Jesus returns, all will be changed and what we know now as Jerusalem will be the New Jerusalem - the home of all those who strive to do the Will of His Father.

[10] Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of the temptation, which shall come upon the whole world to try them that dwell upon the earth.

[11] Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [12] He that shall overcome, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; and he shall go out no more; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and my new name. [6] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. [7] And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia, write: These things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the key of David; he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth.  [Revelations 3]

and

[1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more.

[2] And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  [3] And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people; and God himself with them shall be their God.


[4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away. [5] And he that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me: Write, for these words are most faithful and true. [Revelations 21]
