Christians should all love and pray for Jerusalem now because Jerusalem is an Eternal City and when Jesus comes to set up His Kingdom, Jerusalem will be the capital city of the entire World.
In the Bible God teaches us that there will come a time when Jesus will come to set up His Kingdom on the Earth. He will rule earth for 1000 years from Jerusalem, the Capital City (Revelations 20:1-11). At the End of Christ’s Millennium reign will come the Final Judgment and the end of this present World.
There will be a New Earth and New Heaven and the culmination of this long awaited event will be when the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven as a Bride adorned for her Husband. Jerusalem shall be the Capital City of the World when Jesus returns to set up His Kingdom.
Jerusalem is an Eternal City and all born again Christians shall share in the Glory of this great city.

|NIV Revelation 21:||2||I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.|
|3||And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.|
|4||He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”|
|9||One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”|
|10||And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.|
|11||It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.|
|12||It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.|
|13||There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west.|
|14||The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.|
|15||The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls.|
|16||The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.”|
|17||He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits thick, by man’s measurement, which the angel was using.|
|18||The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.|
|19||The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,|
|20||the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.|
|21||The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.|
|22||I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.|
|23||The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.|
