Brother Mike speaks of two Zions-the earthly Zion (Jerusalem) and the heavenly Zion (New Jerusalem). Zionism as an organized movement is generally considered to have been founded by Theodor Herzl in 1897. However, the history of Zionism began earlier and is related to Judaism and Jewish history. In 1948, the United Nations re-established Israel as a nation. There is no other example in human history of a “nation” being reestablished after such a long period of existence as a diaspora. Brother Mike points out highlights of the history, but makes a point that we are not to look to the earthly Zion. We are to keep our eyes fixed on the heavenly Zion to which Jesus calls us.
