This Thursday evening and Friday is Yom Yerushalayim, the newest holiday on the Jewish calendar celebrating the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967.


Living in Jerusalem, we are seeing prophecies fulfilled every day. Last week the Pope visited Jerusalem. His visit held up traffic for hours and many children had trouble getting to school yet his visit was fulfilling part of Zecharia’s prophecy (Zecharia 8:22) “Many people and mighty nations will come and seek the Lord of Hosts in Jerusalem…”


In Yishayahu (Isaiah) 2:2-4, we read the following prophecy:


And it shall come to pass in the end of days

That the mountain of God’s house

Shall be set over all other mountains

And lifted high above the hills

And all the nations shall come streaming to it.


And many peoples shall come and say:

Come let us go up to the Mountain of God

To the house of the God of Yaakov

And He will teach us His ways

And we will walk in His paths.


For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah

and God’s word from Jerusalem.


And He will judge between nations

and decide between peoples.


And they will beat their swords into plowshares

And their spears into pruning hooks,


Nation shall not lift up sword against nation

Neither will they practice war any more.


The amount of tourists from many different nations that can be seen visiting the Kotel (Western Wall) on almost any day of the week is a clear sign that “the nations shall come streaming in”.


The thousands of students who come to Jerusalem to study Torah each year are fulfilling the prophecy of “Ki M’Tzion Tetze Torah U’Dvar Hashem M’Yerushalayim”, “For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah and God’s word from Jerusalem”.


Now we just have to work on the most difficult task of all “Lo Yisa Goy el Goy Cherev, Lo Yilmedu Od Milchama”, “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither will they practice war anymore”.
