Zion, Ziun or Tziyyon in Hebrew “elevated or high mount” is the meaning of the name. Zion is the spiritual Holy Mount of the people of God. The last prophecy about the coming of the Messiah with His saints to establish His eternal kingdom will be fulfilled, precisely in this mount. This is why there is an alliance of diabolic powers called the beast, the false prophet and the dragon, who is the old serpent which is called devil and Satan, who try in all ways to maintain the war over this holy place. This is the reason of the permanent war between Israel and Palestine, and by its influence in the regions surrounding. The reality is not what is seen, neither the war is motivated by the fight of two nations, but in the spiritual dimension, Zion is the reference of the encounter between the Spirit of God and of man in His presence, which is also the place where we will encounter with Him.

Therefore what remains undercover for the majority of the world is, that the mount Zion which they think is the place where Yahshua will come to, is not the same mount Zion to which He will come. To understand this I will make an exposure of the history of Zion.

Zion is mentioned for the first time in the Bible by Moses in reference to mount Hermon, a mountain range north in the promised land, when he was delivering it to the twelve tribes, and is where according to tradition the transfiguration of the Lord took place. Zion, however is identified with the stronghold of Jerusalem that king David conquest from the Jebusites, and where his tomb is. Afterwards, Zion would be the Temple Mount, mount Moriah, where Solomon built the first temple of Yahweh, where later Zorobabel would rebuild it, and where finally Herod would build again, in its highest splendor, just in time to receive Jesus Christ, Yahshua the Messiah, the so called “corner Stone” who as He walked in it, He completed it, because He brought the presence of God, the Ark of the covenant -that never appeared-, in His soul, converting the place in the spiritual Zion, while He visited it; although later He would torn the veil of the Temple between the Holy and the Holy of Holiest from the Cross in Calvary, meaning that, that place would no longer be the Holiest, nor Zion, but there, wherever there are disciples, in which souls He would live by the Spirit, making us temple of the living God. Therefore He said: …the kingdom of God is within you…Luke 17:21.

The concept “daughter of Zion” is used in reference to the temple hill, which is lower than mount Zion of the high city of Jerusalem, David’s stronghold. This mount called daughter of Zion, as we all know, received the Messiah in His first coming. The question is: To which one of the enclaves known as Zion will the Messiah come to, in His kingdom? We'll find the answer along this study, because Zion is the mount that will receive Him as written in Revelation 14. There is a spiritual connection between the Temple and the City of David, because from the Temple, in one of its walls, one of the doors was the door of Zion, to remind that the Temple existed thanks to David who provided the best materials and his allies from Tire and Sidon, experts in the construction of temples who would be put under the orders of the priests, by his son Solomon.

Also the city of Yerushalayim is called Zion, which is the Hebrew name of Jerusalem and also of the entire Israel. Now days, as well as Jerusalem, other places are called Zion, whether physically or symbolically in some sects of Christianity in which they have even called Zion, those cities they have founded in their particular religion, trying that way to obtain the supremacy over the real location, as they do in the religions movement in Ethiopia, linked to the queen of Saba, who in their tradition say they hold the Ark of the Covenant, as well a other relics of relevance, or the Mormons in the US who identify it with any of their assemblies in a literal way. Many are the ones who try to appropriate of the concept and the name religiously, not to mention the film industry, who use the symbolic name of Zion in, for example, Matrix film, to refer to the last human city or truth.

Zionism. Literally they defend it in a more genuine way, historically, religiously, political and geographically as national groups of the Zionist Israeli political movement, who are in permanent war for the establishment of a theocratic estate according to the Torah, a Jewish Israel, that does not share the land with the Arabs, the demolition of the mosques of the Temple Mount to allow the construction of the third temple and establish the religion of the Torah. The slogan “war now” is what the Zionist leaders teach the new generation in which they trust will be the one to see all the project completed for the arrival of the Messiah. They obviously fight to maintain Zion, Jerusalem as the religious capital of the Jews. Part of this project happened in 1948 after the prosecution during centuries by the anti-Semitic spirit, in the whole of Europe specially the last century, mainly after the holocaust.

What these Jews, jealous of their land and of the promises of our Elohim, are not seeing, is that, as when the Messiah came the first time, they did not understand that the war we must fight is not won with weapons, nor with politics for a physical nation, but on the Cross, for the salvation of the soul and for the coming of the new Jerusalem, Zion, but not the one that we can build as men, but the one that the Lord builds in our souls, and the one He will give us and will establish in His sobering plan. If the people of G-d don't accept the plan of G-d and want to impose their own; What will G-d say? In the times when Yahshua came, there was the zealots, and the people proffered Barabbas even though he was an asinine, what we now call terrorist, in stead of the Messiah, because they wanted to win the battle their way, killing those who opposed the domain of Rome; against the plan of the Lord, which was an eternal victory, not political, not temporary. It cannot be defended that the plan of G-d is for us to kill the people that think different to you, even though what they think is diabolic, what we have to do is preach them the Gospel, in case G-d, who weighs people's hearts, gives them faith in His plan of salvation to obey Him. The war against the enemy is won by G-d, not by man, but for this, man must obey G-d. The zeal of the Zionists for their nation, home land, Torah and Elohim is admirable and, give their lives for it, but need to be born again which they will do the last day, although already many Messianic have done; let's pray for their evangelistic ministry inside their own people. The true Messiah of G-d is not only for the nation of Israel, but universal, and G-d is, of the entire humanity, and does not show partiality with people, nor of nationalities, nor of races, but who believes in the Son has everlasting life. G-d has already won the war, and will come to establish His Kingdom.

But the real meaning of Zion can be found in two places, one is physical in the mount of it's name, the other is spiritual in our soul, because in both places the King of kings, the Son of God must come to establish His eternal kingdom. In deed, if the Son of God reigns in our soul, His kingdom has been established in our lives, the same way as it will do universally. Therefore this is a Bible study that will take us through an important historical, prophetic and spiritual journey to the place of encounter with our spiritual Husband and savior of our souls, Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Yahshua the Messiah.

One of the recently fulfilled prophecies about Zion was the resurrection of the estate of Israel in 1948 by approval of the United Nations, as well as the return to the use of the Hebrew language and the continuance of the Jewish calendar, where as I write, the date is the month of Adar of the year 5767, which you may check in any Israeli news paper in Internet. Later they conquered the Golan Heights next to Hermon, in the 6 days war, to dominate the zone that borders with Syria and to be next to the north limits of the land that Moses gave them, as well as to control water supply form the snowed mountains.

Another one of the prophecies is being fulfilled, see Isaiah 4, again from the recently re-established estate of Israel, is the anti-Jew spirit of a majority of nations, that in the Middle East conflict, in principle, act in favour of the Palestinian people and of the cause of the, now past away, Arafat, now inherited by the current convulse estate, governed by terrorists, who kill each other, like in Iraq. These extremist factions are the defenders of the mosques in the square of the Temple Mount. But in this matter there is a vital clarification that needs to be made: The lack of spiritual and prophetic vision, make many international governments, influenced by principalities and spiritual powers, only see in Israel the behaviour of it's government and the politics of the cruel war, and cannot differentiate between their sins, and the promises of God in the Bible for this nation and land.

The Lord is very clear in his promises: ...Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you... Numbers 24. Then, many wonder why their inseparable allies, whom I will not defend in their actions, but in deed in their spiritual support and prayers, are the most blessed nations on Earth and the first world powers, and instead, others who are their enemies are the list blessed, I mean their citizens, who suffer poverty while their leaders live in opulence. Don't forget that the governments are not the countries, or their citizens, but the spiritual powers that rule temporarily, because in all these countries there are some who pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the conversion of the Jews to the Messiah. China is an unquestionable case of a nation in which we count over 300 million Christians evangelized, who together with the allies, also pray that Israel receives Yahshua, because they now know the prophecies and the promises of God, and see where it is as world power, as an economic and space power as well as church. On the other hand they keep exploding their citizens, who we must pray for and support the missioners who give their lives for them.

The countries with a catholic origin are remaining in a dead tradition, of dead cults, to images of the dead saints and virgins, they don't flow the joy of Christ, their cults are in their majority anti-Biblical and anti-Christian, based on a multitude of mediators and of idols and of images, which is abomination before the living God, instead of preaching the true Gospel of Christ, and Christ alive without mediators, as the only Way to the Father, as He himself teaches. These countries have very limited the preaching of the Bible by these churches, because in their traditions and books of man made commandments are thier own guides; finally a kind of church that is dyeing and drying the souls of their blind and sinning followers who use them for their celebrations, whom their leaders receive for money, who are decreasing rapidly; then these countries want blessings, they ask themselves why their country is under decadence. The answer of God is that they must see their spiritual adultery and abomination by rising immoral and anti-Christian governments who are approving immoral laws which are the mirror of their religious traditions. Either the Christians of these countries convert in a true Church according to the Word of God, and obey in all matters, and then pray to God for their salvation and also so that He raises good governors, or they will only have destruction and ruin, as they are already experiencing.

All this political, terrorist and religious alliance is what the prophecies of the Bible call the persecution of the dragon, the beast and the phase prophet, who battle for the domain of Jerusalem, and to dominate Zion, that is why the Middle East is always in war. War that will not cease, not even when they say "...pace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them..." 1Tesalonians 5, because there is an undercover peace plan which is not of God, but that the antichrist will emplace to the world, deceiving Jews and Gentiles as this verse of Paul.

On the other hand of the prophecies we have the situation of the planetary destruction in two ways: one by climatic change, subject that many politicians use in a hypocrite way, because they use the pollutant energy more than the rest, but preach a saving message, only to cauterize the consciences of those spiritually dead. Yes, the planet is injured for its age and especially by our destructor and egoist hand, because the ones that use the resources are equally as responsible as the ones who make profit from them, governments and companies. The other threat is meteorites, which begin to become uncomfortable in the scientific field and therefore in the political, as we are threatened for the year 2036 by the asteroid called Apophis, "destructor" name of a demon. After the announcement, in the UN they have ordered the creation of a department of security for impacts on Earth. Would Zion be threatened by the destruction of the Earth? Of course not, because Zion will come from Heaven.

But the prophecy which is close to become fulfilled is that all nations will leave Israel aside so that it can find itself alone and encounter with its, and our Messiah, the one they trespassed and hated as a nation, like all nations, and that precisely He will come to reign eternally from Mount Zion, Israel, Jerusalem. In this situation, like the Scripture says, the Lord will poor His Spirit and they shall believe truly in their hearts and will cry for Him, but before they will see themselves threatened by all nations and with no escape in Armageddon. Note that the majority countries are embracing immoral forms of governments that only seek power and don't care for people, nor obey God. The global panorama and specially for Zion is coming to an end. What will happen in 2008 with a planetary political change that follows the destructive political lines I just mentioned, not forgetting the increase of terrorist violence and of nuclear proliferation in which we are immerse already. Where will Christianity remain and where will Israel without partners? The Bible calls this coming situation the Battle of Armageddon.

If we look at the spiritual vision of Zion, we see, as I mentioned at the beginning, that mount Hermon is the first place mentioned as Zion by Moses in the promised land as the north limits, which he mentions when he recaps the Law. After that was the Jebusites mount that David took and where he carried the Ark of the Covenant; once Solomon built the Temple on mount Moriah and moved the Ark there, this place became Zion. Later the entire Jerusalem, and after the nation of Israel. However after Christ and His redemption work as Messiah, the Church of Yahshua is Zion spiritually, who belongs to the nationality and citizenship of the Jerusalem of Above, the new Jerusalem called Zion, place of the throne of God.

Hermon, Zion, Moriah, Jerusalem, Israel, Church, New Jerusalem, are seven concepts and seven spiritual steps for the spiritual history of the people of God and for the man of God in Christ Yahshua that we'll see developed as follows.

First, Zion in Hermon. Man receives, not only the knowledge of his sin before God, given to him in Sinai, which symbolizes his personal height with which he presents himself before God, but when entering the promised land, the Law is recapped in Deuteronomy, and Hermon is called Zion, the high mount, 2800mts height, when man climes to the highest on his solitude to face God, but this tame with a sincere heart to find that his own merits have found him wanting, but his heart has, in deed, been touched by God. In the first announcement of the Law, man is set to wander in his life. In Hermon transfiguration took place, as after being in Betsaida they walked up the high mount which is near. This symbolizes when man hears the voice of God who tells him to hear His beloved Son in whom He is well pleased, Luke 9 and others, because he comes to His presence humble and with spirit of reconciliation with God.


Second, the stronghold of Zion that David took. After repenting, man conquers Zion the high city, this means a spiritual state so called in the Bible "the first love" when man, just born in Christ wants to conquer the world, not realizing he must be part of God's plan, and that his life is in the hands of God. Man in this spiritual state and with all the zeal of God he has, and that he must maintain lit up in fire of the Spirit all his life, must learn humbleness in the promise of the faith, to be able to conquer the promised land and the city of the Lord in the new birth of our neighbour. At this point the soul of the born again, man or woman, converts in king, like David, but has only began his walk by the hand of God. Mount Zion was the palace of David and today it contains his tomb a few metres from the Upper Room of the Holy Supper. This nearness means the change of kingdom, from king David, changing from a kingdom of conquers through the military and physical power, and of the mind, to the spiritual kingdom of the so called, Son of David, the "Messiah King" who conquers our soul for eternity by the death on the Cross and resurrection. David dies in us and Jesus Christ, Yahshua is born. This allows that in our new kingdom we conquer souls for Christ through the Gospel of the love of God, in His works of preaching and prayer.


Third, Zion in Moriah. Moriah has two spiritual meanings, to ways of approaching God, one with the inner temple of the soul and another with the temple of religion. The first one is the way Abraham took Isaac to sacrifice him by commandment of God in the land of Moriah, in one of its mounts, this is spiritual Zion, which represents the sacrifice, not of the son of Abraham, but of the Son of God Who was crucified in the land of Moriah in one of the mounts. A mount in front of the other, one outside the temple, outside religion for love, the other inside the temple by act of religion.

Man begins to build his inner temple by the hand of the Lord. This is Moriah, the concept of religion, the commandments, church's tradition in which he was born, all that the new man of God is going to have to filter thanks to the Holy Spirit. Disgracefully many stay here and stop growing, imposing burdens, like the Pharisees which even they cannot carry, or putting first their tradition to the Word of God, invalidating the commandment, as the Master denounces. The Lord said to His disciples that there would not remain stone over stone, as it happens today to those who follow this level, and as it occurred historically and prophetically: ...6Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 8For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. 10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. Zechariah 2.

Deliver, come out of Babylon, Zion leave from her. This is what the Lord commands us in Revelation18: ...And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues...

Yahweh has sent Yahshua to you.

The Mount of the temple and the "Sancta Santorum" were in the physical temple, but once the veil was torn, Yahshua opened the door to the Father's heart where we have access to offer spiritual sacrifices, whether of prayer, intersection, or of our own lives daily. Therefore this level leads us to follow the way of the spiritual Zion, leaving behind, as well as Hermon, the stronghold and now the daughter of Zion, to go to the next mount.


Fourth, Zion, Jerusalem, Yerushalayim. The braid of the Lamb, our soul, where Yahshua has come is Zion, and also for this reason we can identify Zion as the soul of the disciples of Christ, in its body. Its in our soul where all spiritual historic events of the Bible, from creation through the new birth, the knowing of sin, the reception of the Law, the prophecies, the coming of Christ, the suffering for the Cross of Christ for us, for our guilt, the joy for His resurrection, the faith, the daily life in our relation with our neighbour and especially with our families and with the brethren of the Church by the hand of the Holy Spirit, as well as the hope of seeing Him come to mount Zion at the end of time. Jerusalem is the centre of attention of the world's peace, peace that cannot come until its inhabitants proclaim that Yahshua, Jesus Christ is the Messiah Who came 2000 years ago and died for all of us, from all nations.

Today Jerusalem is divided in three parts, the Jew, the Christian and the Muslim. Two of them are physical sons of Abraham, but is the Christianity of the first disciples, that still exists today and in which we must remain, the spiritual son of Abraham. But the hope is that they come from the same father Abraham, and only in Abraham they will find reconciliation by the faith in the promise that God Himself provides, not the one we may achieve by our own merits, so this is a call to the sons of Ishmael and to the sons of Israel to embrace their saviour, Yahshua, the fountain of peace.

Zechariah received a prophecy in Chap.12 that also fulfilled in 1948: ...Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem... But the Text before this is even more relevant ...And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it... Finally read the complete chapter 12 because its of great relevance.

Zechariah also received another prophecy in Chap.14: ...I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle...

Physical Jerusalem and her character was already denounced by the Messiah in Mathew 23: ...O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets, and stones those who are sent to her, how often would I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, you shall not see Me till you say, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord... This is how many still are in Jerusalem, but the Messianic are changing this, and the time is near, and the prophecy fulfilling, preparing the soul of those who will face the threat in Armageddon. This attitude is found today in many churches who don't receive those sent to them in the name of the Lord to exhort them about their character and doctrinal error, for which their spiritual houses, churches and souls are being left desolate, without Yahshua, without the presence and the unction of the Holy Spirit, as we have denounced in many countries, in their dead churches.

In the spiritual dimension we are announced another Jerusalem, the Jerusalem of above, who is mother of all, in Galatians 4. So if we are Zion and Jerusalem, we must accept the plan of God for our lives, and of the brethren, for the holiness of the body of Christ, and be alert working in the works of God awaiting the celestial Jerusalem, the spiritual Zion, and announce it to its residents, the literal Israel, supporting and praying for them, and for those of their nation that have embraced the Messiah.


Fifth, Zion, Israel. We face the belonging to Israel, being part of Zion which is very attractive for Bible believers, I don't mean the literal nation, which is also jealous of it, but the Israel of God, which includes Messianic Jews and Christian Gentiles, which once in heaven will mean the same. The belonging is a focusing in which even today many remain completely blind. I mean the belonging to the different denominations, churches, cults, and sects, concept this from which they must all come out, for in one same Spirit and in one same body we were all baptized in Yahshua, Jesus Christ alive, whether Gentiles or Jews. If we are body of Christ, we all need each other, as said in the Scripture in 1Corinthians 12, the eye cannot tell the ear that it doesn't need it, nor vice verse. This is an important spiritual step forward, which is to understand that we are body of Christ and live in this way, being able to share the marvels of the Lord with brothers of different assemblies and of different countries without discussions, only if they follow the sound doctrine, obviously, because the gifts of the Church are different and different are the ministries that the Lord put in His own power, and who organizes all this project is the Holy Spirit for the growth of all in all times and circumstances that only He knows. I can assure by my own experience that is of great joy to find friends in Christ from so may parts of the world.

Ecumenism is not the same thing as cleanness and doctrine holiness and heart circumcision, which is what I mean, because by no means we can accept the false doctrines that are preached in the world by may preachers and by many churches who call themselves Christian. The cult to images condemned by God once and for all, is still alive in so many churches that also foment praying to the dead, saints, and virgins, against the Gospel of Jesus Christ, following man traditions inherited from the Roman, Greek and pagan world. Others preach all kind of doctrines against the Gospel, they proclaim to be the only witness of Jesus Christ, others accept sexual abominations inside their churches, not to mention the psychological mistreat which many others teach, driven by false prophets, false masters, full of deceiving spirits. ...Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error... recommends us 1John 4. Or, Seek the Scriptures! the Lord recommended, that we are not deceived. Now, in many churches, as well as in non Christian religions, they speak of the world, and of course the world hears them.

Nor ecumenism inside Christianity nor ecumenism between religions is what God is requiring. The ecumenism that accepts it all, is the same as adultery or spiritual fornication, or the same as its done by the grate spiritual harlot of Babylon, denounced in Revelation 17 and that God hates and destroys, making His people aware, again in vs. 4 of Chap.18: ...come out of her my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues... The merchandising this one does, as priority, as well as the world government of destruction, is of souls of men, as its said in vs. 13 & 24 of Chap. 18.

Israel called Zion is the body of Christ, but the historical Israel was, and it will also be of God because they will be blessed with the faith in the Messiah who they heated before, when they repent and God will sanctify them in the Blood of the Messiah-Lamb. In Egypt they were slaves; like we all are in the world today as we work to survive under the yoke of the spiritual Pharaoh of the world government of the powers and principalities of the heavenly places. We must come out, I refer to humanity, of slavery, and seek the presence of God, and call Him that He might descend to reign over us that He may take away the current kingdom of destruction and abomination. We will recuperate the lost paradise, the personal friendship relation that Adam enjoyed at the beginning, but of course, now in the second Adam, which is Christ. Of this paradise we already enjoy partially, because again: ...the kingdom of God is within you... Israel has a predominant prophetic roll, and they are part of God's clock, they, the Jews, their government, their nation, their people, here I refer to the physical and literal, they are implicit in the events of the Lord, as they have always been, now together with the Church. ...And it shall come to pass afterward, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions... Joel 2. Therefore even if they don't want to, or to put it this way, even if they haven't received eyes that they might see nor ears that they might hear, are fulfilling the prophecies. In the same way the Church, the spiritual Israel, is fulfilling the prophecies about its development in the Bible.


Sixth, Zion, the Church. To be part of the Church occurs when one is born again from above, from the Spirit of God, by faith, by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We have no merits to achieve salvation, nor the belonging to Zion, nor resurrection for eternity. Is the King of Zion, Yahshua, who has come and overcome for us in the war of sin and of death and has given us everlasting life. Church, then, is not arrogant belonging, in what one could fall easily, because we are to remember that we are not better than the other sinners, and that without the mercy of God, and the gift of the faith in His Son Yahshua, we would not be saved, nor be part of His Church, of the spiritual Israel of the new Zion.

...You shall know them by their fruits... Matthew 7. ...But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5.

Do you recognize yourself in these 9 qualities and abound in them? I believe that we must all work hard on them every day, and be humble hearted and trust God's might to make us like Him, because the flesh and the environment of the enemy in the spiritual battle in the world fights against us. Why not dedicate the next nine days to pray for each of these qualities, not only for each one of us, but for all those who are sons of God to receive them? Remember the Menorah of 9 arms and 9 oil lamps. Is then, the brotherly love, non feigned, between all the sons of God; those who follow the Scriptures and Christ where ever He goes, in a personal relation with the Holy Spirit, the living proof that we indeed are sons of God. Sons as described in John 1, not that we come to the world already being so, which is against the sound doctrine. If you don't believe this, read John 1.

Many brothers complain that they cannot have friendship with brothers of different churches, or even in their own, because doctrines preached there have become the center of their message and way of life, as sect, not remaining as Christ centric congregations. For us to be Church, Israel, Spiritual Zion, these nine are useful requirements, as well as the ones that go with the virtue, taught by Peter, so lets make the effort for the joints of the Body of Christ for which our Lord died. Have you seen the current estate of the Church world wide, in its different cults? See Yahshua.net/links.htm Be ready for the fall of Babylon, come out of her!, and build the living Church, between which, is the Kingdom of the living God. If you are a son of God, battle for your friends in Christ, because they are a jewel that we have here on earth, as we are told in 1John 14.

A key to be part and to build Zion, the Church, is to understand that there are many brothers, but friends in Christ not so many, we must love these and those, but the ones who are real friends are our joints in the body of Christ, if they obey the Truth; and this is a danger that the enemy uses to insert false doctrines and enmities, taking advantage of our friendship to divert us from the Way through a friend. As you can see the fight is not easy, but prayer, obeying God and patience are the best weapons of the love that God provides us with, that between all of us we remain in salvation until the coming of the Lord to the next mount, the seventh, the New Jerusalem, Zion of the Heavens.


Seventh, Zion, the new Jerusalem that descends from the heavens, mentioned in Revelation 21. Have you read it lately? I invite you to open your Bible now and read it, and then carry on reading. Also in another Scripture, Paul calls the New Jerusalem Zion in Hebrews 12, that we'll read near the end. So, this new Jerusalem, this new and last Zion is, not only the new city that comes from the Heavens, but here, city, must be understood as dimension, new and spiritual in which God lives with us in eternity. At last, this is my thinking in Christ, Zion is and will be, the relation that we have with God, the presence of God and the marriage of God with each of us for eternity, as its also mentioned in the Text of Revelation when we are called the Lambs wife. In this same way is the relation between the brothers in Christ. There is an important point to remark, this is that, it specifies, that in her, you see no temple, because the Lord God Almighty is the Temple of her and the Lamb. This also occurs in our soul, the Lord is our inner temple of the soul, through His living Spirit in us, Who loves us and makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26.

The new Jerusalem has several attributes, as it is to descend from the Heavens having the glory of God. To have the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb as temple. Without moon, without son to shine in her, because it will have the light of God and of the Lamb as the more relevant of Revelation 21.

Yahshua has fulfilled historically the part of the prophecy in which he would come to Zion Moriah, to die for us and rise. For this reason He will fulfill physically the second part, coming to Zion for Zion, from the Heavenly Zion. Although there has been speculations about the location of Calvary, Golgotha, is not Zion, also, the Lord was crucified outside the city, hated and rejected went to His sacrifice; but those who chose religion and tradition could not imagine that the Messiah and his message of salvation according to God, contrary to what they use to do, in the same way as its done today, many Jews and Christians, is that His death would have so much effect inside the physical Temple of Moriah, Zion, as it was that the veil torn, in an inaccessible place, only accessible for the high priest, and obviously, by God himself. This way God was returning them the torn of the cloths in a supernatural way so they could have no excuse. We will see that Zion, in which the Messiah will put his foot in His second coming is in the same place where He pour His soul for ours, in Olive Mount, which covers Gethsemane as prophet Zechariah says in the last chapter, 14 which you can read with it's comment further on, because in it we will find all the prophecies about Zion in a same Text. In principal outside Zion, also outside the Temple, in Olive Mount, where Yahshua ascended to heaven, He will come.




This is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel: 45These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, after they came forth out of Egypt,... ...48From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto mount Sion, which is Hermon.

This is where we began the history of Zion. The first time the word "elevated" is mentioned, Zion. Curiously there are three peaks in Hermon, so called the Hermons, but there are also three hills in Olive Mount. None of these mounts is normally related to Zion, but however there are two events of great impact which occur in them, in these Zions or elevated. In Hermon the transfiguration and in Olive Mount the Ascension. To this elevated mount links the last prophecy of the return of the King of kings that we'll see in the next Texts. 


And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither. 7Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.

This is the beginning of the history of Zion in Jerusalem territory, then called Jebus. Since the delivery of the land by Joshua to the twelve tribes, until the conquer of this city, 200 years would go by, after the judges and until this one, the second king. Zion converted into the city of David. Now 3000 years later still keeps his tomb. The psalmist would declare that for him the stronghold of his people was the Lord Himself. In this same way we must also think, not in physical strongholds, or of the world, of economy, intellectual or material, but in our strength and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ, our King.



Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

From Zion, salvation came and will come for the nation called Israel, inherit of Abraham by the faith in God's plan, in other words, in His Son Yahshua, as for the Jews than for the Gentiles. Yahweh made the captive of His people return in 1948 and Jacob rejoiced and also Israel. But spiritually the return that God seeks in the literal Israel is that they come back to the faith in His Word, in His Salvation plan, not the one they may want, the same way as all other nations, each soul and specially every soul. ... He who has the Son, has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life... 1John 5.



The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

This is a key Text for the Jews to comprehend that David declares that Yahweh talks to the Lord of David, and sits Him by the right hand of Yahweh. The eternity of Yahshua the Messiah cannot be ignored. Our eternal priest, the only one that can intercede for us always, Melquisedec is an immortal priesthood, and I don't mean it has to be continuously done but the contrary, because the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, Hi Son Yahshua, died once and for all for our sins, so there is no need for Him to die more times, and those who believe in Him are cleaned of sin and saved for eternity, it is then not necessary the Levitic priesthood that they want to establish again in the third temple, which would be an antichrist priesthood.



Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

In this precious psalm we have a key about Zion in Hermon. The dew of the high mount north of the sea in Galilee descends over the mount"s" of Zion. This plural confirms the existence in the knowledge of the people of God, of several mounts called Zion. Is is known that the three cumbers of the range of Hermon where called the mounts of Zion, as I mentioned earlier, the Hermons. But we must remember again at this point the three hills of Olive Mount. Three "Elevated" that may spiritually symbolize the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, as three are the ones that bare witness; the Spirit, the water and the Blood, and these three agree as one. 1John 5.

As between His people that live together in harmony, the Lord sends His unction over our heads in His revelation and in the priesthood of Galatians 6 and 1John 3, which is the elderliness of the bead of Aaron, because is the maturity of the priesthood, changing from the one in the Mosaic Law to the one of the Law of Christ, and the unction  descends down to the edge of our cloths, of our salvation, cover, armor, garment and coat, between the friends in Christ.



1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising... ...6The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD. 7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory. 8Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? 9Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. 10And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. 12For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. 13The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. 14The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. 16Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

The famous "wise men" from the east, from Madian, with their camels, came to the lightning of the birth of the child Jesus bringing gold, incense and myrrh.

The ones who fly like doves to their windows, are the multitude of spiritual hosts  of the Lord, the angles that appeared to the sheppard when the Messiah was born, the King of Israel. Luke 2:13.

Your open doors, symbolizes the entrance to the presence of God; the richness of the nations and their kings are we the sons of God, for we are a nation of kings and priests and our richness is our fruit of the Spirit, in worship and adoration, intercession of love for God and our neighbours.

The glory of Lebanon came when the Temple of Solomon was built, and foreigners from Lebanon, experts in construction, built the walls together with the priests. This means that the spiritual temple is built by Gentiles and Jews that believe in the Messiah.

The ones that afflicted you were we who were under sin, whether Jews or Gentiles, because the alliance between both, the Sanhedrin and Rome, were, and here we all form part of as the entire humanity who pierced the Messiah, and bend before the steps of His feet, down to His Gospel of Salvation and of holiness, and we call the Lord City of Yahweh, Zion of the Holy of Israel.



Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 15And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. 16And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. 17At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

I shall introduce you in Zion, is similar to be inserted in the good olive, the same way as the Jews without Yahshua the Messiah are cut out, but as they believe in Him the are re-inserted back. For this the Lord sends pastors according to His heart. A pastor of God must speak the Truth according to the Bible, because is the only way to sheppard and feed, with science and intelligence, not ours but of God, which is the one that provides Salvation.

No more it will be said Ark of the covenant, nor they will think about it, nor miss it, nor build another. This is how a son of God who knows the Lord lives, having the temple, the Holy of Holiest and the Ark in his soul, by the Holy Spirit, but instead those who want to build the temple again, say they have an Ark or are looking for the original. However the Word of Yahweh very clear.



Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. 10And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth. 11As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth...

Being this prophecy fulfilled in Matthew 21 and John 12 by Jesus as we all know, the King of the daughter of Zion, in other words, the King of the Temple came that they could shout joyfully and all of His people did as the Apostles and the foreigners who believed the Lord.

Spoke "my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you", Yes, His peace is spiritual, eternal and universal, but humanity in its majority has not realized this yet and keep "learning the war". His Lordliness is already from sea even to sea, until the ends of the earth, and it will be, in His kingdom.

Zion is saved, by the Blood of the Messiah.



1Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. 6And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. 10All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses. 11And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

Olive Mount, where the Lord, after raising, ascended, 40 days after the Passover, to Heaven, and this same way He did it in the clouds, visibly, He will do visibly in the clouds in His return, Revelation 1, in the same Olive Mount. In deed, you will have realized that the prophecy links this mount, (where the orchard of Gethsemane, the mount of prayers and of suet of the Blood of Christ, where the Father sent an angle to strengthen Him, after accepting the cup of our sins, as the Zion of His ascension and of His return), with the last mount Zion, where the Messiah will come, mount that dominates the elevation of the Temple mount and also the city of Jerusalem and also the stronghold of Zion.



For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

If we realize, in this Text, when we come close to Zion we enjoy a series of blessings which is the company of thousands of angles, being part of the assembly of the firstborn, attribute which is obtained when we are born again from Above, being inscribed in the heavens by the faith in Christ, for being inscribed in His soul, being before the presence of God the Judge, our spirits are counted as just, justified in Yahshua who made us perfect, and we are with Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant in His blood.



To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

The key for those who want to enter Zion is to place Yahshua as the main stone, angle stone in their lives to built a life of blessing in Christ Jesus, because who believes in Him will not be deceived, because although here on the earth and in time we suffer persecution, this cannot be compared with the glory that will come for eternity which we will be part off by the hand of our God Yahweh in His Son Yahshua.

Let us be, like Peter shows us, living stones to be built as spiritual house, Zion, and holy priesthood that through Jesus we may offer or lives in a daily sacrifice in the love of God, so we may transmit the faith in the Main Stone which is the Son of God to those alive around us who don't know Him.



And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads... ...3And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

This is the last prophecy, the second coming of Christ on Mont Zion. The Church, we the Israel of God have written in our foreheads the name of the Father and of the Lamb, the same name YHWH written in our minds.

The new song that can only be learned by the 144.000 redeemed, is nothing else but the worship to God that comes out of the heart of a son of God when he has been born again, as proven in the following Texts of who as well opens its significance, king David himself in his psalms, he who conquered Zion, and who realized that without the Lord he was not saved nor victorious, and who worships the Lord of his Lord, because he already saw the Son of God in his spirit; therefore before the conclusion, we will finish the Texts about Zion with the New Song in these 7 references of worship:

...Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise... Psalm 33.

...And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust Yahweh... Psalm 40.

...Sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. 2Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people... Psalm 96.

...Sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. 2The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. 3He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. 4Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. 5Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. 6With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King... Psalm 98.

...Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. 2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation... Psalm 149.

...fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth... Revelation 5.

...The seventh New Song has to be added by the reader from the heart, from Zion, towards Zion...


The prophecy concludes in the following way: While the Jewish people battle for the construction of the third temple, for which they have to demolish the mosques of the square, Al-Aqsa and the Copula of the Rock; the Church keeps advancing in winning souls for God. Being the Temple established, the antichrist would sit to rule from it offering a universal peace plan, that will be a deceit, because his only target is that he is adored in the Temple of God. But his kingdom is a divided kingdom against itself, because his allies, all the other demons want to rule themselves too. The opposite of the people of God, in which His people and His angels, we all adore God and love Him.

When the destruction of the Temple and of Jerusalem come over them they will understand that in reality Zion that they thought was not Zion in which the Messiah will come, instead He will come to Olive Mount prophesized in Zechariah 14, and will do so with all His saints. The next Text of Paul in his 2 latter to the Thessalonians 2, is the one that gives light about this:

...Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

We may realize after reading this impacting but real Text, that in all these places so-called Zion there is great persecution, for in them along history, whether literal or spiritual, has been and is in the presence of God, of the living God and of His people, Israel and the Church. Therefore as we are already in Zion, when the Lord comes physically in the end of time, we'll also be with Him in Zion. Mean while lets make an effort in prayer and obedience to God that we remain in His Spirit for salvation.

The spiritual conclusion is that Zion is the presence of God, Yahshua himself, the Holy Spirit. Zion manifests wherever there are two or three "in My name, I will be there" says the Lord, between any assembly that loves Him, and from a soul of a man, His temple, until the biggest assembly, for the Kingdom of God is within us. Israel and Church. People and Country. Soul and Nation. Our soul, our family, our houses, our assemblies, our churches are Zion, spiritually.

When we read Zion we must remember its meaning, "elevated" Zion of the Lord is Elevated of the Lord, which is, who God has placed elevated over all, the King of kings, His Son Jesus Christ, Yahshua. Welcome to Zion. Amen.



  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.

  • I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6. Words of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.
  • You want to know God, but you know the way is not through organized religion, nor by sects, nor by society. The world has failed. ...I pray for them;  I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours... John 17:9. Prayer of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.

  • If you really seek God, begin today the new life though the true hand of God. The Gospel is the message for all nations, no matter their race, their origins or culture. God is the saviour of those from humanity who open their hearts to Him.

  • ...Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1Corinthians 15:58.
