Jerusalem - Future capital of the world

The 30 July 2020 is a day known as Tisha B’Av. Jews think of it as the saddest day in Jewish history as it was the day when the Babylonians destroyed Solomon’s temple in 587 BC, the day when the Roman legions captured the city of Jerusalem in AD 70 and the day when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 136 AD.
Today, Jerusalem is the centre of conflict in the Middle East as it is a holy place to Jews, Muslims and Christians. The conflicts concerning Jerusalem are a contrast to the meaning of the name of the city ‘Habitation of peace’.

So, will the city ever live up to its name?
The Bible teaches that it will and not only so, it will be the future capital of the world.
