John 1:1, 14 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. . . . And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth." (qeo;" h\\n oJ lovgo")

*Jerusalem a heavy stone

Isaiah 29:7 "And the multitude of all the nations who wage war against Ariel [A name applied to Jerusalem meaning Lion-of-God],265 Even all who wage war against her and her stronghold, and who distress her, Shall be like a dream, a vision of the night."

Zechariah 12:2-5 "Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. And it will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. In that day," declares Yehovah, "I will strike every horse with bewilderment, and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘A strong support for us are the inhabitants of Jerusalem through Yehovah-of-hosts-their-Elohim.’"

Luke 21:28 "But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your head, because your redemption is drawing near."

*Israel Will Turn to Jesus

Zechariah 12:8-10 "In that day Yehovah will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like Elohim, like the Angel-of-Yehovah before them. And it will come about in that day that I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like the bitter weeping over a first-born." [John 3:16] (John 19:37)

Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst, and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach here Your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing.’ Thomas answered and said to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!’" (John 20:26-28)

*God Will Gather, Unite, the Nations Against Israel

Psalm 83:4-8 "They have said, ‘Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.’ for they have conspired together with one mind; against You do they make a covenant: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites [Jordan]; Moab [Jordan], and the Hagrites; Gebal, and Ammon [Syria], and Amalek; Philistia [Gaza Strip] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Lebanon]; Assyria [Iraq] also has joined with them; they have become a help to the children of Lot."

Zechariah 14:1-4 "Behold, a day is coming for Yehovah when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished, and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. Then Yehovah will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south."

Acts 1:9-12 "And after he had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them; and they also said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.’ Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away."

Joel 3:1-2 (4:1-2) "For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.

Jeremiah 51:24-26  "‘But I will repay Babylon [Modern Iraq] and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all their evil that they have done in Zion before your eyes,’ declares Yehovah. ‘Behold, I am against you, O destroying mountain, who destroys the whole earth,’ declares Yehovah, ‘And I will stretch out My hand against you, and roll you down from the crags and I will make you a burnt out mountain. And they will not take from you even a stone for a corner nor a stone for foundations, but you will be desolate forever,’ declares Yehovah."

*Arabs Everlasting Hatred

Ezekiel 35:5-6 "Because you have had everlasting enmity and have delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the punishment of the end, therefore, as I live," declares Adonai-Yehovah, "I will give you over to bloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you."

*Great War Will Start when Israel becomes a nation

Israel became a Nation again on May 15, 1948

Ezekiel 38:7-9 "Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them. And you will go up, you will come like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your troops, and many peoples with you."

*Confederacy Against Israel

Psalm 83:1-8 "Elohim, do not remain quiet; do not be silent and, O El, do not be still. For, behold, Your enemies make an uproar; and those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, and conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, ‘Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.’ For they have conspired together with one mind; against You do they make a covenant: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; they have become a help to the children of Lot."

*Amos Prophesies Against Irael’s Enemies:

Descendants of Esau

Amos 1:11 "Thus says Yehovah, ‘For three transgressions of Edom and for four I will not revoke its punishment, because he pursued his brother with the sword, while he stifled his compassion; His anger also tore continually, and he maintained his fury forever.’"

*Jesus' Return

Zechariah 14:6-11 "And it will come about in that day that there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. For it will be a unique day which is known to Yehovah, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light. And it will come about in that day that living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter. And Yehovah will be king over all the earth; in that day Yehovah will be the only one, and His name the only one. And people will live in it, and there will be no more curse, for Jerusalem will dwell in security."

Revelation 19:11-16 "And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful-and-True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. And His eyes are a flame of fire, and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself. And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word-of-God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God-Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "King-of-kings-and-Lord-of-lords." (Zech 12:1, Deut 10:17, 1 Tim 6:15, *Rev 17:14)

Revelation 20:1-6 "And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years."

Revelation 21:3-4 "And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them, and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying or pain; the first things have passed away." (Isaiah 25:8, 65:17-19)

Revelation 21:6-7 And he said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. (Rev 1:8, 17-18, 22:13; Isaiah 44:6)

Revelation 21:22-26 "And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord-God-Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. And the nations shall walk by the light, and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory into it. And in the daytime (for there shall be no night there) its gates shall never be closed; and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it."

Revelation 22:1-5 "And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month [there is time in heaven]; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His bond-servants shall serve Him; and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord-God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever." [Jesus is God, Rev 21:23; Ezek 47:1-12]

Revelation 22:7 "And behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book."

Revelation 22:11 "‘Let the one who does wrong still do wrong; and let the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and let the one who is holy, still keep himself holy. Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha-and-the-Omega-the-first-and-the-last-the-beginning-and-the-end. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the fornicating persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying. I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the Root-and-off-spring-of-David-the-Bright-morning-star.’ And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost." (Rev 1:8, 17-18; 21:6; Isaiah 44:6, 11:1; Matt 2:23)

Revelation 22:20 "He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come, Lord-Jesus."
