There is a “tradition” among Evangelicals to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” and so they pray for that city over there in the Middle East, travel there, send money there, and encourage their government to do everything the Jews ask for.
This tradition is based on Psalm 122:6. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.”
But Jesus Christ never prayed for Jerusalem. He prophesied its destruction: “Behold your house is being left to you desolate.”
The Apostles never prayed for the peace of that city. Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy prayed for the Church: “Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thes 1:1). There are no Epistle to Jerusalem, no prayers for that city, no message to the “church in Jerusalem” in the Revelation.
In every Epistle there is a prayer for peace and grace to the Church, NEVER for that city called Jerusalem. The Church is that Heavenly Jerusalem that the Apostles prayed for in the Epistles — they honored Psalm 122:6 — they set the example for us.
The false Jews allied with the devil against the Christ — they are the incarnated and corporate antichrist. Satan gave them the power and wealth and rulership that Jesus Christ refused (Luke 4:6). The church today bends the knee before this antichrist.
Jesus Christ will make the false Jews bow down at the feet of the Christians:
“Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and make them know that I have loved you.” (Rev 3:9)
Nothing will change until the church repents of their worship of the antichrist.
