This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study focuses the spiritual kingdom of Messiah, which is called Heavenly Jerusalem. It’s not focused on physical Jerusalem in modern-day Israel.
The Jewish leaders rejected Messiah in part because they wanted a political leader who would overthrow the Roman oppressors and help them establish a worldwide kingdom.
Messiah proclaimed that His kingdom is not of this world. It’s not based in physical Jerusalem. It’s spiritual.
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. John 18:36
Jesus saith unto the Samaritan woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 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. John 4:21, 23-24
The citizens of His kingdom, which is made up of believing Jews and Gentiles is called Holy Jerusalem in Revelation, are spread around the world.
Abraham looked for a spiritual kingdom, not a piece of land in the desert. The seed of Abraham is made up of those who have a covenant relationship with the Father through faith in the atoning work of His Son.
For he (Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:10
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. Hebrews 11:16
The city of Elohim is no longer the physical city of Jerusalem, but the heavenly Jerusalem, which is populated by His set-apart people.
But, ye came to Mount Zion, and to a city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of messengers, to the company and assembly of the first-born in heaven enrolled, and to God the judge of all, and to spirits of righteous men made perfect, and to a mediator of the renewed covenant–Jesus, and to blood of sprinkling, speaking better things than that of Abel! Hebrews 12:22-24
Wherefore, also Jesus–that he might sanctify through his own blood the people–without the gate did suffer; now, then, may we go forth unto him without the camp, his reproach bearing; For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. Hebrews 13:12-14
The enemy has caused people to focus on the Khazar Jews in Israel, who have established a physical political kingdom, from which they wish to rule over the world and the Gentiles.
Per Galatians 4:22-31, the Jews in modern-day Israel are spiritually Hagar, the bondwoman.
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.
28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
The true Israelites, called Holy Jerusalem, are the believing Jews and Gentiles who are spread around the world.
