Q. I just finished reading this week’s article, Leave Jerusalem Alone.” You cited Zechariah 8:3 This is what the LORD says: I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain. How can God dwell in Jerusalem if the third Temple is built in Shiloh? Do you think Jerusalem will have new boundaries in the Millennium?
A. A little further on in the article I quoted from Isaiah 62:1-2 and Ezekiel 48:35 which reveal that Jerusalem’s name will be changed to Jehovah Shammah which will be the location of the Millennial Temple. It’s geographical position is the same as the ancient city of Shiloh which was only a few miles north of Jerusalem. Also Zechariah 14:4 indicates that at the 2nd Coming an Earthquake will split the Mt. of olives in two with half moving North and half moving South. This Earthquake will create a valley that runs from the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea, destroying the Temple Mount and pushing Jerusalem to the North. When you put all these verses together everything fits.
