«Christians» who utters the words «Jerusalem is occupied» to a Jew, are apostate Christians. They have never known the Jewish Messiah.
All true Christians who have been given the burden to care for the Jewish people, will be told by the Holy Spirit to tell all Jews that the «City of King David» Jerusalem was liberated from Arab occupation in 1967.
The Jews have been brought back into Jerusalem by the God of Israel, to prepare for the return of the Messiah to His chosen people. Many of them do not know Him. And they will mourn when they shall see Him whom they have pierced.
That day will surely come.
