Lk 19:41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it,
42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.
43“For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,
44“and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
As Jesus got closer to Jerusalem, He begins to weep knowing what will become of this city, particularly, the people. They would reject the Prince of peace which in turn results in zero peace. Im so appreciative of the peace God gives. Just 30 short yrs, the romans will completely destroy this city. Jesus holds them accountable to the day of His visitation, this very day, how? One of the most profound prophecies in Gods word, Daniel 9:24-27. A good scripture reading Jew could know to the very day, in which the promised messiah would ride in on a donkey, 173880 days from the command to rebuild Jerusalem until the Messiah the Prince is hailed as King. This is why every other time they tried to force Christ to be king, He escaped the scene. This was the day the LORD had made literally. The LORD holds us accountable to His wonderful proven faithful word.
