put on your strength, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city;
for there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.
Shake yourself from the dust and arise;
be seated, O Jerusalem;
loose the bonds from your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
Welcome back…so glad you’re here! Yesterday we laid the groundwork for today’s exciting finish. If you missed yesterday’s post, go back and pick it up before proceeding today. Take your time through today’s post!
We have established the fact that the City of David (Zion) was the ancient site of Jerusalem. The Old City within today’s walls is NOT the Jerusalem of David’s day!
In 1867, a British archeologist discovered the City of David, which was buried under succeeding layers of civilization. The City of David is now being excavated, and it has a story to tell! It is a story of what the Bible tells us will occur before the Second Coming of Jesus. Jerusalem will rise…and we have a part to play! I want you to hear about what is happening at the City of David, but before we do that, please pause to read Isaiah 52:1-2 (above). Take time to review Isaiah 62 as well! Enjoy!
(Note: this video is 4 minutes long and contains an opportunity to support the work of Jerusalem Watch. My point is not so much that you support them [though I believe it is a worthy cause], but that you hear the significance of this discovery. So, please watch the entire video.)
