    Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass,
    that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:
    And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying,
    Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek
    the LORD of hosts: I will go also.
    Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek
    the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.
    Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass,
    that ten men (Gentiles) shall take hold out of all languages of the
    nations, even shall take hold of the hem of him that is a Jew,
    saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

    Romans 2:28
    For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

    Yes...the Heavenly Jerusalem ...it is happening since the ascension-

    22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

    23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

    24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

    25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

    26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

    27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

    Vs 27 speaks of the nations/gentiles coming in in great numbers....

    here from Isa54;
    Isaiah 54

    King James Version (KJV)

    54 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.

    2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;

    3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

    4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

    5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

    Yes, there is yet a future for the Jew - the true genetic Israelite -
    but it will be at the expense of Great Tribulation for the Jewish Nation.

    A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the
    hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.
    Ex 39:26
    The Jews that minister to the Gentiles will once again wear the robe like the Lord did:
    And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his robe: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole. Mt. 14:36

    No.

    It will be because the church, true Israel, covers the earth with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Israel will be one of the many nations to embrace Jesus Christ through the preaching of the Gospel and the work of making disciples of the nations.

    beamup,

    many do see it that way in our day...try and consider it the other way...look up all such verses here are a few: Instead of picturing a future earthly Jerusalem and Zion....see it as the current rule from the heavenly Zion and Jerusalem.... there can still be some physical israelites included near the last day:thumbsup:
    14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

    15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

    16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

    17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

    18 I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.

    19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.

    20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.



    5 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

    16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

    17 So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

    18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth out of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

    19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.

    20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.

    21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion.

    yes.....27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

    28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor among the nations.

    29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

    30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

    31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
