ALL NATIONS AGAINST JERUSALEM
Jesse M. Hendley
Message given February 1983
Four verses comprise our text in which God says that
all nations are coming against the nation of Israel.
All Nations to Battle
These references are found in the Book of Zechariah.
First, in chapter 12 and verse 9, we have, “And it
shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to

ALL OF THEM! We can always take God at his Word, for

verse 12, “And this shall be the plague wherewith the
Lord will smite all the people that have fought
against Jerusalem,” and verse 16, “And it shall come
to pass that everyone that is left of all the nations
which came against Jerusalem.”
When it is said that "all nations against Jerusalem"
and "all peoples against Jerusalem," we have the very
plain language of these four verses.

West Bank to the Palestinians.
I would like to call your attention to this most recent
newspaper article from Israeli occupied West Bank: "It
is quite a deal! For less than $20,000 a young Jewish
couple can buy a spacious three-bedroom house in this
fledgling private sector settlement ten miles south of
Jerusalem. This is one-fourth the ...
