There are 2 locations for Jerusalem. One is in Heaven called the New Jerusalem. This will be home for Messiah/ Christ and the resurrected for 7 years, after the Blessed Hope until the Second Coming. Those there will have residency status. Later, when the New Jerusalem comes to Earth at the end of the 1000 Year Reign, others will have visitor status as friends to the groom and bride. They will have passes to come and go through the 12 gates to the Eternal City. The New Jerusalem in Heaven is the finest Jerusalem, finer and greater than any earthly Jerusalem the Fair or Jerusalem the Golden.
The earthly Jerusalem will become many things during the 70th Week of Daniel. It is promised in The Scriptures to become the following: "Sodom and Egypt" and "a burdensome stone" and "a cutting stone" and "a cup of trembling" or "reeling" in the time of "Jacob's Trouble" on Earth. It will become worse and worse until The Second Coming. >From The Blessed Hope until The Second Coming, eventually all nations will side against Jerusalem. They will want to take as a spoil, to divide, to invade, to attack, to devastate. Jerusalem, Israel is The City of The Great King, The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords. JERUSALEM is an intrinsic part of the land (spiritual grand central station in essence), ETERNALLY PROMISED in THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT to the HOUSE of ISRAEL, the 12 tribes, the seed of ISAAC. The division of the land, the expulsion from the Gaza in 2005, will pale in comparison to the consequences of plans which shall unfold in space and in time to plunder and savage Jerusalem. The multiplied curses resulting for those breaking The Covenant will be directed toward those described in Psalm 2:2-3."The kings of the earth set themselves, and their rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast their cords from us." The disposition and treatment of earthly Jerusalem in the 7 years ahead will be part of the Sheep and Goats Judgment. How Jerusalem, the other Covenant land, and the Covenant people will be treated during the 70th Week of Daniel from 2011-2018 shall be titanic in importance to the Trinity: Abba Father, Son, and the Spirit of Truth.
The Quartet will meet in Washington D.C. beginning with the banquet on 7-11-2011. Does this remind us of Daniel 5: 24-28 about King Belshazzar and the handwriting on the wall? What was the dire warning? It was Mene, Mene, Terkel, Parsin. Some nations, some people, are intent on more division of the land, expulsion of people, and forgetting or intentionally breaking The Covenant. The blessings or curses, compounded, have been promised to those who honor or break The Covenant. Before the outpourings of judgments and wrath really occur in the 70th Week of Daniel, the bride of Christ (The Restrainer), must be removed. The departure, the apostacia, appears to be very near. HEAVENLY JERUSALEM and EARTHLY JERUSALEM are VITAL KEYS! Come quickly, Lord...
With Love and Shalom,
