It is also a witness to many wars and battles. Yet, when the glories come again, it will be a land of hope – the hope that God promised to Abraham and his descendants.
Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. This city is mentioned over 800 times in the Tanakh and New Covenant. Every corner of it bears witness to the tragedies of yesterday, the troubles of today, and the glories of tomorrow.
