God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)
Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

The shalom of Jerusalem is destined to embrace all the nations; and this insight leads to the following awareness: When we request the shalom of Jerusalem, we are asking not just for our sake, but for the sake of the world.
1. If all the nations become one people through a shared spiritual vision, will all the diverse characteristics of each nation disappear into a "melting pot"? Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, a noted Biblical commentator of the 19th century, responds to this question. He writes: "Each nation may still retain its own characteristics and peculiarities, but must always use them and the way of life based upon them only in conformity with the supreme Divine moral law." (Commentary to Psalms 24:6)
2. In the age of universal shalom, we, the People of Israel, are to serve as kohanim - ministers - to the nations that will come to Jerusalem to seek HaShem. This vision is expressed in the following prophecy concerning our role in the Messianic age: "And you will be called the kohanim of HaShem, ‘ministers of our God’ will be said of you." (Isaiah 61:6)
