December 15: God’s unique relationship with Israel; Jerusalem, End times

Jerusalem in the Messianic Kingdom

God will reign for a thousand years from Jerusalem.  In that day the land, the people and the city will be fully restored. 

Thousands of years ago, God gave to the prophet Ezekiel exact instructions including the division and measurements of the city.

Most important was God’s changing the name of Jerusalem to forever proclaim His presence and sovereignty.

Ezekiel 48:30-35

“These are the exits of the city. On the north side, measuring four thousand five hundred cubits (the gates of the city shall be named after the tribes of Israel), the three gates northward: one gate for Reuben, one gate for Judah, and one gate for Levi; on the east side, four thousand five hundred cubits, three gates: one gate for Joseph, one gate for Benjamin, and one gate for Dan; on the south side, measuring four thousand five hundred cubits, three gates: one gate for Simeon, one gate for Issachar, and one gate for Zebulun; on the west side, four thousand five hundred cubits with their three gates: one gate for Gad, one gate for Asher, and one gate for Naphtali. All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be: 

“THE LORD IS THERE!”
