The Jerusalem Watch Coin lies at the heart of the Jerusalem Watch initiative, whose purpose is to empower those passionate about Biblical Jerusalem to connect to her on a deep, personal level.
The true location of ancient Jerusalem was only rediscovered a mere 150 years ago, located 400 meters to the south and outside the walls of what is today known as the Old City. Significant archaeological discoveries were made in the City of David over these 150 years, but ongoing excavations have only been done over the last 25 years. These excavations provided us actual physical proof of the authenticity of the Bible. It is not hard to see that our generation is witnessing wonders that so many longed for, but never merited to see.
As “Watchmen on the Walls,” we have to remind God and take initiative in order to see Jerusalem restored to her former glory – until God makes her again as a Praise to the Earth (Isaiah 62:6-7). We have to turn word to deed by assisting the excavation process.
