This short sermon, as it is written here, was originally posted on our
monthly church paper in March 1996. Even
in our days God speaks through His servants the prophetic word! If God's
Word would have been believed and obeyed 7 years ago, Germany and the
rest of the world would look different. We can not turn the wheel of
time back, but God in His grace has still given us a "Today".
Let's use it wisely, as long as we have a chance to do so!
Under Israelian leadership Jerusalem has blossomed
to become one of the loveliest cities of the world; all citizens no
matter what religion have prospered from this development. However,
at this point of time where Jerusalem is gleaming like a bright jewel
everyone is desiring to possess her, especially the Moslems. They are
crying out for Holy War to bring about the"release of Jerusalem
out of the hands of the Jews", in case negotiations involving Jerusalem
which officially begin on the 4th of May 1996 do not rule in their favour.
Although, given a try everyone could live happily together in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem will become a cup of trembling for her Moslem neighbours.
This will in turn affect all the people upon this earth and they will
want to get rid of this burdensome stone (Zachariah 12). Then GOD will
STEP IN and come against these nations which are fighting against Jerusalem
Zach.4,2-4) It is interesting to observe the development of Mohammedanism.
Radical pioneers of Islam are working under the cover of freedom and
are threatening world-wide political leaders, intellectuals and tourists
(newspaper -Mannheimer Morgen 28.12.94).
