The last Jews in Jerusalem
By Craig C. White
There will be a very special group of people on earth during Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation. They are the last Jews in Jerusalem. Their numbers are few. They may reach into the hundreds perhaps a few thousand. They will suffer. They will survive! They will be at the center of God’s attention. They will be at the center of the world’s frustration. They will be the last hope to every Jewish heart that God may yet restore Israel back to his chosen people. When Christ returns they will be a sign to every Jew in every place that salvation is wrought in Israel!
These people are probably living today. Perhaps one of them is reading this. If so then there is one thing that I want to tell you, “DON’T RUN!” Anyone who tries to flee Jerusalem will be captured. Wait for your redeemer in Jerusalem!!!
Isa 30:15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved
There is a terrible time of judgment and suffering coming upon the land of Israel; more terrible than the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D., more terrible than the holocaust. The Tribulation begins in the whole land of Israel, it becomes Great Tribulation in the city of Jerusalem, and then culminates on Mount Zion. Two thirds of the people in all the land of Israel will die (Zec 13:8). Then half of the people in Jerusalem will be taken captive (Zec 14:2). Anyone who tries to flee Jerusalem will be captured (Isa 30:16). Then the residue of the city will huddle together on mount Zion (which is the hill south of the temple mount called the hill of Ophel or the “City of David”) in Jerusalem and wait for their redeemer.
This is the story of the last Jews in Jerusalem. During the tribulation a small band of Jews will be holed up on Mount Zion. The armies of their enemies will flood into the city. As they pray for deliverance they will look up and behold their God!

I have read your book, I just have one question, I found a bit disturbing, at the end of all the gospels Jesus is taken up on a cloud to heaven. In Acts, The angels that apear afterward says to the desciples that Jesus would return as He went up. In my opninion that He would come down on that very spot. How can He take a different route then?
Hi Derek: The Angel said that Jesus would come in the same way, not that Jesus would touchdown in the same place. Jesus Christ will come back in clouds. He will at some point be in Egypt.
Isa 19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
A point of interest, The cloud that led Israel first appeared in Egypt.
Exo 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Derek: Jesus Christ may indeed return to the Mt of Olives in the same way that he left. But he will make a few stops before he gets there.
Zechariah tells us that Jesus will save “the tents of Judah” before he saves the city of Jerusalem! The tents of Judah will be in Jordan. They are the Jews that fled Jerusalem into the wilderness.
Zec 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
Jesus is coming from Bozrah in Jordan.
Isa 63:1-4 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
When Jesus said “When you see all of these things happen, then lift up your heads and rejoice, for your redemption draws near (Luke 21:28)”, I always felt he was speaking to all Christians living in the last days. Do you think this statement may have been targeted more directly towards the last Jews in Jeruusalem?
Luke 21 is absolutely directed at Jews living around Jerusalem during the Tribulation. Luke spells out both Judah and Jerusalem. It is a parallel passage to Mathew 24. These are critical distinctions to make. https://hightimetoawake.com/what-shall-be-the-sign-of-thy-coming/
