Zion is a people of God who will not bow to a false god of the world.Although the world seeks after it’s own, Zion’s people are are not sought out for they are considered to be Outcasts. “For I will restore health unto thee,and I will heal thee of thy wounds,saith the Lord;because they called thee an Outcast,saying, This is Zion,whom no man seeketh after”.(Jeremiah 30:17).
It is through living a just and righteous life that one becomes part of Zion,for those who forsake the Lord will be destroyed. “And I will restore thy judges as at the first,and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness,the faithful city.Zion shall be redeemed with Judgement,and her converts with righteousness.And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together,and they that forsake the Lord,shall be consumed”.
In the last days at the harvest it will be the children of Zion that will remain. “Put in the sickle,for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down;for the press is full,the vats overflow;for their wickedness is great.Multitudes,multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.The sun and the moon shall be darkened,and the stars shall withdraw their shining.The Lord also shall roar out of Zion,and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people,and the strength of the children of Israel.
So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion,my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy,and there shall no strangers pass through her any more”.
In the Last Days there will be those called by the Lord and they shall be delivered,as are those who call on him for their Salvation! “And it shall come to pass,that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered:for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance,as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call”.(Joel 2:32).
