Peace in Jerusalem?

The question still to this day being asked: “So when will there be peace in Jerusalem?” Although, there will be numerous attempts at peace culminating to the end of time, there is never going to be peace in Jerusalem.

Here is the word of God: “Hear ye the word of the LORD; thus saith the LORD God; woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing. To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace,’ saith the LORD God” (Ezekiel 13:2–3, 16).

Many people overlook the fact that in John’s vision of the end of time, the holy city, the great city, Jerusalem “was spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11:8).

God promised that the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the city would remain for ever (Jeremiah 17:25) if they adhered to his commandments. However, these commandments as spoken by Jeremiah, just as the everlasting covenant were broken (Isaiah 24:5). God declared saying: “And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things” (Jeremiah 16:18). “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth” (Revelation 18:23–24).

There will only be peace FOREVER in the NEW JERUSALEM in the NEW WORLD to come in the NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH (Revelation 21:1-3). In the last days of time, John in his vision clearly revealed the heavenly Jerusalem when he saw the firstfruits or rather the first humans redeemed from this earth with the Lamb on mount Sion (Revelation 14:1), “the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels” (Hebrews 12:22).
