Apocalyptic battle will be over the status of Jerusalem.
by Charles Gardner
In the wake of the worldwide denunciation of President Trump’s earth-shaking decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, nations are now queueing up to follow his lead.

In joining the predictable chorus of disapproval at the UN, the British people are in ever— increasing danger of being numbered among the goats of Judgment Day referred to by Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew (25:31-46).
This passage is widely interpreted to relate to how the peoples of the world have treated God’s chosen race — the "brothers and sisters” (in the flesh) of our Saviour, who was born the King of Israel (Matt 2:2) and is coming back as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev 5:5).
Isaiah writes: "For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined" (60:12; see also Mic 5:15).
