Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Jerusalem

Recommended Posts

Maybe it's in the main forums, but this Jerusalem declaration by President Trump is huge. I watched a video by what I perceived (yikes) to be a guru from India, how it popped up idunno, but he claimed to have divine revelation. Now I aint sayin I buy into it, but the message was plausible. Check out Zechariah 1, especially around v16. See watcha think. Jerusalem divided? Clock is ticking... Merry Christmas!

Zech 1:16 is a promise from God that his temple will be rebuilt:

 

Therefore, thus says the Lord, I have returned to Jerusalem with mercy; my house shall be built in it, declares the Lord of hosts, and the measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem. (ESV)

 

The context of the verse seems to be words of comfort for Judah following her time in exile.

 

Not sure what you are seeing in Trump's Jerusalem declaration, perhaps you should draw me a picture.

Zechariah also contains prophesies of Christ's return in the future. Maybe Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital is an indication that his return is near.
