12ml / 30ml Essence of Jerusalem
What is the essence of Jerusalem? The scent of this holy city?
For the believer in the sacred Scriptures, this is the city is where God promised to put His name forever. According to the Bible, God’s eyes are always on this land and this city. This is where He chose for His Temple, His House. For the believer in Jesus, this is where God chose to bring His plan of redemption to fruition.
Jerusalem broke our loving Savior’s heart and He wept over the city. It is where Jesus entered in triumph right before Passover as the crowds shouted “Hosannah!” This city is where Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper and commanded His followers to partake of it in remembrance of Him and His sacrifice in our place.
On the east side of the city is the Mount of Olives where Mary anointed Jesus with spikenard before His death and where, later, Jesus was betrayed in the garden of Gethsemane. Jesus was judged by the sinners who ruled this city and then crucified on a small hill to the north of town. He rose from the dead here in triumph over death. After His resurrection He led His followers back to the Mount of Olives and ascended into Heaven. One day, according to the Scriptures, He will return to the Mount of Olives and set up His kingdom on earth in the new Jerusalem.
