There is another Covenant in Jerusalem displayed in the Knesset I have wondered about called the Jerusalem Covenant and it contradicts Scripture re: all religions in paragraph 4. It was made in 1992
The Jerusalem Covenant is a pledge of allegiance by the State of Israel to the city of Jerusalem.
The Covenant was signed on Jerusalem Day, 31 May, 1992 (28th of Iyyar, 5752) at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the city’s reunification. The document was signed by then-President of the State Chaim Herzog, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, chief rabbis of Israel Rabbi Avraham Shapira and Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, Supreme Court President Meir Shamgar and other dignitaries.
The Jerusalem Covenant is on display in the Knesset’s Chagall State Hall, near the copy of the Proclamation of Independence.
As presented to the Israeli government in 1992, upon the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.
We have gathered together in Zion, national leaders and heads of our communities everywhere, to enter into a covenant with Jerusalem, as was done by the leaders of our nation and all the people of Israel upon Israel’s return to its Land from the Babylonian exile; and the people and their leaders will dwell in Jerusalem, the Holy City.
Once again, ‘our feet stand within your gates, O Jerusalem - Jerusalem built as a city joined together’ which ‘unites the people of Israel to one another’, and ‘links heavenly Jerusalem with earthly Jerusalem.’
We have returned to the place that the Lord vowed to bestow upon the descendants of Abraham, Father of our Nation; to the City of David, King of Israel; where Solomon, son of David, built a Holy Temple; a Capital City which became the Mother of all Israel; a metropolis for justice and righteousness and for the wisdom and insights of the ancient world; where a Second Temple was erected in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. In this city the prophets of the Lord prophesied; in the City the Sages taught Torah; in this City the Sanhedrin convened in session in its stone chamber. ‘For there were the seats of Justice, the Throne of the House of David’, ‘for out of Zion shall go forth Torah, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.’
Today, as of old, we hold fast to the truth of the words of the Prophets of Israel, that all the inhabitants of the world shall enter within the gates of Jerusalem: ‘And it shall come to pass at the end of days, the mountain of the House of the Lord will be well established at the peak of the mountains and will tower above the hills, and all the nation shall stream towards it.’ Each and every nation will live in it by its own faith: ‘For all the nation will go forward, each with its own Divine Name; we shall go in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.’ And in this spirit the Knesset of the State of Israel has enacted a law: The places holy to the peoples of all religions shall be protected from any desecration and from any restriction of free access to them…
erusalem - peace and tranquility shall reign in the city: ‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may those who love you be tranquil. May there be peace within your walls, and tranquility within your palaces.’ Out of Jerusalem, a message of peace went forth and shall yet go forth again to all the inhabitants of the earth: ‘And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war anymore.’ Our sages, peace be upon them, said. In the future, The Holy One, the Blessed, will comfort Jerusalem only with peace.
From this place, we once again take this vow: "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its strength; may my tongue cleave to my palate if I do not remember you, if I do not raise up Jerusalem at the very height of my rejoicing.’.
And with all these understandings, we enter into this Covenant and write: We shall bind you to us forever; we shall bind you to us with faithfulness, with righteousness and justice, with steadfast love and compassion. We love you, O Jerusalem, with eternal love, with unbounded love, under siege and when liberated from the yoke of oppressors. We have been martyred for you; we have yearned for you, we have clung to you. Our faithfulness to you we shall bequeath to our children after us. Forevermore our home shall be within you.
The contradiction in paragraph IV can be seen by reading Isaiah 2:2,3 or Micah 4:1,2 (they read the same) this covenant is politically correct and all-inclusive re: religions. The first part reads the same, but not the second part.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
In the Daniel 9:27 covenant in the midst of the week the sacrifices cease…which made me wonder if the covenant will have a religious component.
Also, in II Thessalonians 2:4 the AC exhalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped (all religions?)
