The Holy City


Jerusalem. The remembrance of that holy city is a reminder of all that God has done. He has made holy this city with His presence from ancient days. It was in Jerusalem that the Temple was constructed. It was in Jerusalem that Christ opened the treasures of the Kingdom of God. It was in Jerusalem that our Lord was condemned and killed. And it was in Jerusalem that death was conquered for us all when Jesus Christ walked triumphantly from the tomb.

Jerusalem. It is the symbol also of our destination – that “heavenly Jerusalem” where God is enthroned, surrounded by the angels and saints, and where a place has been prepared for each one of us. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. It is an earthly city torn apart by sinful man, but it is a heavenly destination, sanctified by the Perfect God.
