Many believers are wrongly focused on earthly Jerusalem, because they have been deceived by the popular but false teachings of our day.
For every kindred, tongue and tribe,
The Lord loves all, casts none aside,
Salvation offered to each one,
The Gospel calls, excluding none.
No special people, special race,
Salvation’s only by God’s grace,
All sinners, born of Adam’s seed,
Blood atonement, our greatest need.
Around the world many believe,
In Jesus Christ the chosen Seed,
But there are others, yet to come,
From every nation, there’ll be some.
Can we deny God’s holy Word,
To those who may have never heard,
And call them evil enemies,
While Jesus beckons “Come to Me.”
Citizens of heaven above,
Ambassadors, we walk in love,
Jerusalem above, our stand,
City of peace, true promised land.
All shadows, types, are things of earth,
Nothing matters but the new birth,
Jerusalem above, our care,
Helping others to settle there.
On His throne Jesus reigns and rules,
You’ll find that He’s in no way cruel,
Misrepresented has He been,
By many, in this world of sin.

John 4-19-26 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
Galatians 4:25-26 For this Agar (Hagar) is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
