A WND exclusive by Rabbi Tuly Weisz notes the world’s holiest city ‘has shalom at its core’ and provides 10 biblical reasons:
1) Jerusalem is mentioned over 800 times in the Bible.
For Zion’s sake I will not be silent and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be still. ISAIAH 62:1 (The Israel Bible)
2) “King David declared it 3,000 years ago!”
But I chose Jerusalem for My Name to be there, and I chose David to rule over My people Israel. II CHRONICLES 6:6 (The Israel Bible)
3) The Jews have never forgotten Jerusalem.
If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither. PSALMS 137:5 (The Israel Bible)
4) The sovereign State of Israel established Jerusalem as its capital city.
Thus said the Lord, ‘I have returned to Zion, and I have made My dwelling in the midst of Jerusalem.’ ZECHARIAH 8:3 (The Israel Bible)
