God's Eternal City - Poem by Bob Gotti
Today's occupation of Jerusalem by others in Scripture is unfounded,
And the whole world will see this fact when that Trumpet is sounded.
When millions leave the earth, those left behind will be dumbfounded,
And soon after this happens, God's Eternal City will be surrounded.
For those left behind, a politician will grab the focus of the world,
He will confirm a covenant for Israel and his plans will be unfurled.
The very city that Arabs claim because of one of their holiest sites,
Was a city conquered and taken by King David from the Jebusites.
Even Nehemiah told an Arab when he went to rebuild Jerusalem's wall,
You have no share in Jerusalem, claim or historic right to it at all.
The leaders convince people to kill themselves, thinking it's clever,
In a vain attempt to take the City that God put His Name on forever.
In His time God will gather all the nations around His Beloved City,
He will pour His wrath on Israel's enemies, and show them no pity.
According to God's Word, Israel's Messiah will descend from the sky,
And as Christ comes with the clouds He will capture every single eye.
It will be on the Mount of Olives, on which the Messiah shall stand,
This is the day Zechariah said Israel would see and then understand.
For Israel will be delivered through God's outstretched mighty hand,
And finally do away with all Israel's enemies and purify their land.
