Who Are The Rightful Owners of Jerusalem?

If the reality of Christianity can be seen with the introduction of Christ to the World, then for sure, the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD marked the ending of the Jews 'sole ownership' of it thereafter. It's true, the Bible does make reference to GOD'S chosen people (the Hebrew Jews) as being the rightful owners of Jerusalem. But with the destruction of the Temple, and the ultimate scattering of the Jews to the four-corners of the globe, possession of Jerusalem changed hands.

I have studied this long and hard. 1948 merely marked the United States' recognition of the State of Israel, and many nations followed suite. With America's backing, first with mercenaries and, then, with full backing. Those who possessed the great city under the New Covenant, were driven out by the Jews upon their return from Europe and other parts of the World.

I anxiously await your “well researched” replies.

Palestinians of course, who lived there for 1000s of Years until after WWII US/UN/UK gave Israel lands which then lead to invasion and occupation of Jerusalem by Israel.
I mean just think you own a House in some US city, have lived there for many Years, then all of a sudden an American Indian shows up and says this land you live on and hence your House belong to me since my ancestors, 2000 Years ago, owned this land! How would you like that?

it has always been my belief that Jerusalem rightfully belongs to the people who lived there before the Balfour declaration, which I considered not to be valid or binding, the Palestinians. The state of Israel has absolutely no right to declare ownership over this land, especially based on 1/3 party agreement passed through the British Parliament. Just because the British controlled Palestine, doesn't mean that they owned it.

Wheeler61, I agree.. not simply because of the lack of validity in the Balfour declaration, but because of ancient Biblical history. What many fail to understand is that the first Covenant given to Abraham and his seed is no longer binding under the New Covenant, which took away the Hebrews' rightful ownership to it, which was brought about by the Jews constant disobedience against GOD, and culminating up to the murder of Christ and the final destruction of the (earthly) Temple in Jerusalem.

After it, the Jews were conquered by the Muslims and forced out of Jerusalem, scattered throughout the world. When (spiritual) Jerusalem is fulfilled, as explained at Revelation, it will be for those who are in Christ and Christ be in them.

Take it this way brethren, this is on the issue of the owners of the holy land. Proverbs 14:23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. Leviticus 19:4 “ ‘Do not turn to idols or make metal gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God. Why these 2 verses? Look at Egypt for instance, till eternity, the handwork of its people are there as witness of their ownership of the land. The indians that the skinzoomer spoke of, if they have edifications showcasing their

existence in say washington DC, the argument against them will be hard. The Jews lived in the land. While there and through them, the two main religion in the world were birthed. The Messiah of the world was born. The notion of right and wrong were codified into law that guides every civilized society in the world. Now, what legacy does your palestinians leave for either themselves or the world to lend credence and value to their occupation of the promised land?

I dare say - NOTHING!- beside killing each other and killing everyone too weak to defend themselves as well..... for generations.

So brethren, i dare say.. STOP hating the Jews.. A popular adage in my language says, The train moves, the dog may back till the cows come home,the train still moves. If it has balls, let it bite the train... I hope we all understand.

Okinawa1985 What many fail to understand is that the first Covenant given to Abraham and his seed is no longer binding under the New Covenant? Can you give a single verse that confirms it? Sorry there is none, just incorrect interpretation of the Bible text. Genesis 17:4 God says, "Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations.Read also Romans 9:6–8 and 1 Corinthians 3:21–23. Blessings to all.

YosefMarques, thank you for your reply. However, I'm not quite sure I understand exactly what you are saying. On the one hand you state, “What many fail to understand is that the first Covenant given to Abraham and his seed is no longer binding under the New Covenant” but then you ask and state, “Can you give a single verse that confirms it? .. Sorry there is none, just incorrect interpretation of the Bible text.” In truth, what

The Bible doesn't tell us not to smoke cigarettes, but science teaches us that cigarettes are hazardous to human health. It's from reasoning

Cont'd>> we begin to understand that not smoking cigarettes is a way we can “keep the temple (our body) clean.” If, therefore, the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD, and both Jew and Gentile became recipients of the New Covenant, is it not reasonable that the “physical Israel” would not – cannot be solely owned or possessed by Jews alone. And in like manner, should not “Spiritual Israel” be deemed the same? This is what I have concluded through reasoning, when the apparent

AFTER ALL: just think you own a House in some US city, or UK City, Australian city, etc., and have lived there for many Years, then all of a sudden an American Indian, etc shows up and says this land you live on and hence your House belong to me since my ancestors, 2000 Years ago, owned this land!

Skinzoomer.... Look at it this way, the Bible told us about Talent, not burying talents...The Israeli lived in the land. They build edifices. The palestinians lived. Nothing to show. Just the few decades that the Israelis got there, they are already back at work turning the desert green! The palestinians are still as usual sitting on their haunches, quibbling, quarrelling, using stones to fight kalashnikovs and tanks. Well, time moves... Either one gets off their backsides,

and do something positive with whatever resources one has at ones disposal, or one goes the way of the dinosaurs. Extinct!

God is a scientist. He decided to choose father Abraham as a test case after the disastrous event of the generation of Father Noah that instead of helping to build the ark were busy defecating in the Ark while father Noah was building it. God's test case about what make these creatures called human being was Abraham.

To make sure he understands why human were so stubborn, he even sent his son, Jesus Christ. Killed of course. Now, the jews are the offsprings of father Abraham. A test case, the experiment. That therefore means that we all, Jews and gentile are his children, as long as we choose to recognise his paternity. I am not a goyim that would consider Jews as special children of God and Palestinians as subhuman. No, I however, fair is fair. To me and any fair thinking person,

the Jews care for the land.... Look at the women with the dead child in the Bible 1 Kings 3:16-28, one wanted the child destroyed. The other wanted the child to live. We all read how that story ended.
Palestinians always want the land up in flames, whereas the Israelis tend and build. Judge for yourself. Shalom.

You seem to forget that CLINTON passed a law to move the embassy and all that Trump did was OBEY that law, which Clinton, Bush, & Obama did not do, even though they all promised to do it.

So Trump did nothing wrong regardless of what the nutjobs of the world say.

You should be questioning whether the law that Clinton passed was good or bad, because without that law it is doubtful that the embassy would have ever been moved.

Every president before Trump may have authorized movement, but they all sought for a more diplomatic solution, like a bilateral agreement for peace between Israel and Palestine. Trump is the only president to "shoot first" ask questions later, so to speak. Besides, he and his son-in-law have a vested interest in Israel. This move was precipitated more financial than even political. The other presidents weren't wrong, Trump is!

It does not matter why Trump did what he did. What matters is that he obeyed the law Clinton signed, while the other Presidents BROKE THE LAW and should be incarcerated for doing so. When you or I break the law, we go to jail or worse. So should they.

Clinton did not need to sign that law. He could have used diplomacy as you suggest instead. But once he signed the law, diplomacy was OFF THE TABLE AS A SOLUTION for him and the others.

mmerlinn is further proof od what lunatics Trump Republicans are for 1st stateing that: "all Trump did was OBEY .. Clinton & Obama..."
and this is same Trump that has trashed Obama laws such as Paris Climate Accord, Iran deal, etc.

2nd in ultimate proof of what lunatics Trump Republicans are he calls the entire World to be "nutjobs" for having condemned this action of Trump. So in proving what psycho Trump Republicans are, he is calling:
UK a "nutjob"
France a "nutjob"
Germany a "nutjob"

Canada a "nutjob"
Italy a "nutjob"
Spain a "nutjob"
Australia a "nutjob"
etc. etc.

for beside Israel NO other Nations has approved this action.

So the question we need to ask ourselves, is how is it possible that so many Americans have become such lunatics to call the entire World "nutjob" while praising Trump? Answer is US Media is Israeli controlled, this ranges from CNN MSNBC etc. that does not tell American people the facts to Fox etc. that tells psychotic Hate filled lies on 24/7 basis.

It is ashemed that "Christians" in this forum only talk hate politics and not Bible Truth. We do not care who is the rightful owner of the land, we know is God, and He did not gave it to the Palestinians. President Trump just did what the Creator of the World told him to do. Next according to Bible Prophecy is the construction of the Third Temple and later the return of the Messiah of Israel. Israel is the centerstage of the world. Who cares about the other players.

DumbTime since I did not approve of your actions, you can go to the back of the class.

The nutjobs can cry and moan all they want, but the U.S. does NOT have to what the nutjobs want. Does that mean the U,S, is right? No, just that the U.S. has the right to do whatever it wants without listening to the peanut gallery.

And the Paris accord and Iran deal were not laws. Only Congress can pass laws that the President may or may not sign. They were treaties that Congress did not vote on and therefore were invalid. Congress must approve all treaties.

Inconclusion, When our Lord returns, all nations of the world will come to Jerusalem to worship (Micah 2:3). Jerusalem will be the capital city not only of Israel but of the entire world, and the Word of the Lord shall go forth from Zion (Isaiah 2:3). Jesus will reign from Jerusalem (Luke 1:32). Israel is at the center of God’s plan.

The land of Israel was promised to Israelite in perpetuity. So there is a "Promised Land" given to the Jewish Seed by The Creator of the Universe.

Gen 15:18 "In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates"

Gen 26:3-4 "Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
Gen 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed"

It also says that Israel is responsable to take people from this sacred land out or the Jewsih people shall be punished:
