This is the second episode of the series. Click here to read the first portion. In Questioning the Magic of TPM Zion 2 we investigate the places where this word is used, throughout the scriptures.

Literal and Spiritual Zion

Right from the day of the capture of the fort of ZION which was held by Jebusites    (2 Sam 5:6-9), “ZION” was the dwelling place of David and it was also known as the central location in Jerusalem. It was a literal place in Jerusalem. The scripture refers to the dwellers of “ZION”. (Lamentations 2:4, 4:22)

In the former eternity, God predestined the foundation of the Spiritual Zion through Jesus Christ (Isaiah 8:14; 28:16; 1 Peter 2:6-7; Romans.9:33). This is to be established in eternity through the Son of God Jesus Christ. He was born in flesh as the son of David and the place where Christ dwells forever with the His saints is the spiritual “ZION”. (Isaiah.11:1; Joel.3:16-18; Psa.74:2; 132:13-14; Zech. 1:14-17; 8:1-3).

Due to their disobedience, the wrath of God was poured on Israel, the literal “ZION”. Many times, they were destroyed and taken as captives. Most of these prophecies regarding Zion were focused on captivity and their restoration. In the book of Isaiah, “ZION” is mentioned 52 times. It starts with the verse “The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.”. It means that as long as the Jewish race continues to exist, these prophecies are for them. It’s not for some pseudo-Zionists from any organization.

As an example, read the below prophecy on Zion and know that it was addressed to physical Israel.

“Return, faithless people,” declares the Lord, “for I am your husband. I will choose you—one from a town and two from a clan—and bring you to Zion.

Jer 3:14

ZION is mentioned 15 times in the book of Lamentations by the author Jeremiah, the weeping prophet. The context clearly tells us that it is directed to Literal Israel.

The ways of Zion do mourn because none come to the solemn feasts: all her gates are desolate: her priests sigh, her virgins are afflicted, and she is in bitterness.

Lam 1:4

It is mentioned 40 times in Psalms. The inherited city of David is also depicted as Literal and also a Spiritual subject of Hope. For eg., Psalms 84:5 says “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage (Zion).” In verse 7 psalmist says “….each appears before God in Zion.


The Erring Zion

And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

Isa 1:8

The return and restoration of ZION of Israel which was scattered all over the world after 70 A.D was fulfilled in 1948 A.D. They were scattered because of the curses of the mosaic covenant they were party to.

I have written this to show some light to those who manipulate and twist the scripture for their selfish motives. I leave the rest of the reference for the readers to find out and understand the subject.

The Restoration of Israel(Zion)

17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. 18 THUS SAITH THE LORD; BEHOLD, I WILL BRING AGAIN THE CAPTIVITY OF JACOB’S TENTS, AND HAVE MERCY ON HIS DWELLING PLACES, AND THE CITY SHALL BE BUILT UPON HER OWN HEAP, AND THE PALACE SHALL REMAIN AFTER THE MANNER THEREOF.

Jer 30:17-18

Read the below verse in continuation to the events in Daniel 12:11-12, 2 Thess 2:4, Matt 24:15

10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.11 And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto thee.

Zech 2:10-11

Notice that the Jews have no confusion in identifying ZION. They know it. Do not be duped by the identity theft done by certain Cult organization. – Questioning the Magic of TPM Zion 2

End of “Questioning the Magic of TPM Zion 2

To be continued.


  1. I do have a question: can we establish a doctrine from the book of revelation?
    I don’t think so, then how can TPM have their foundation of Zion doctrine from Revelation 14.

    • Apart from Cults like TPM, nobody would take Exclusive passages in Revelation and privately interpret for themselves to establish the doctrines of the Church.
      Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Pet 1:20

  2. Please can anyone give me reviews about Derek Prince & Paul Washer. I enjoy listening to/ reading their sermons, and would like to hear a review.

    • Both of these are Good preachers in general. However, I have a disconnect with Derek Prince for the Curses Theology he teaches. He seems to believe that the ancestral curses stick to us even after we are saved and we need to do some actions to get it removed. I do not subscribe to that thinking of Derek.

      • Thank you brother… old habits die hard. It is so easy to get carried away and not discern impartially.
        Thank you for taking the time to reply and much appreciate that.

        I will listen in with care and hopefully warn others too.

      • A friend of mine asked me not to send him Derek’s videos and since I was also sending Paul’s, I thought maybe there’s something incorrect and felt I should check in this forum.

        Please forgive me if I have misused the comments section for topics that are not relevant to the article.

    • Brother Denzel, I too will will recommend that you stay away from Derek Prince as he misinterprets like TPM the Holy Spirit, Blood of Jesus etc…appears very spiritual but is NOT.
      But Paul Washer’s sermons have strong foundations in the scriptures and can be very edifying. Also try David Wilkerson, Leonard Ravenhill.

      • Thank you so much Bro Redeemed. While I have not critically examined the sermons, your message is a quick alert to watch out and mind; read up and discern.

        Thanks for the headsup.
        I will check the other two.

        I was reading a review about Paul Washer (and please forgive me I am asking with child like sincerity) that he plays with emotions. A certain incident where he asked a six year old girl to cry all night until she was certain she was saved. Since coming out of TPM and not being a church goer, online sermons become addictive and Paul Washer and Derek Prince became my instant go-to’s

        I shall check out David’s and Leonard’s as well.

      • Wow that’s three in a row against Derek.

        Thank you bro Nath.

        I have been so zealous in forwarding Derek’s to all my friends without even realising. It shows how gullible we humans are, irrespective of age or education.

        I ask the Lord to grant me wisdom

  3. Yes,it does immense help to have the review of such  men of God that brother Denzel Joy was talking about.
    I thank ADMN bro’s timely input which I consider very valuable that Derek Prince was indulging in Curses Theology.Does it not feel sick to see the people stick around  to their own man made doctrines and try to propagate them through the social media channels?

    In that sense Derek is no better than spreading the kind of Alwynism that this site has been exposing  all these years!

    But as far as Paul Washer is concerned,I do really enjoy his sermons that give a fair amount of accuracy on spending time in prayer, a fine exemplary quality of Jesus who often spent time in speaking to the Heavenly Father God,even while He was having busy schedules of 3 years of His earthly ministry. JESUS  gave top priority in speaking to Heavenly Father than His ministry.
    It was a real eye opener  for me that how I missed spending time in prayer in all those years of my slavary that I spent time with this BEAST.It took a heavy toll on my individual iife and that of my valuable time that I could have otherwise spent time for my family.Instead, much of my precious time was lost in totally neglecting my family needs.The paramount importance was given to attend weekly tarry meetings,Sunday School meetings/baseless children conventions and keeping myself busy with planning and attending  the year round local and international conventions throughout those continents.
    What a foolish way of spending God given time with these Scribes and Pharisees  of these white clads!
    Oh,what a great mistake I committed by getting easily robbed by this BEAST in all the past years!
    But I profusely thank God for getting rid of me from this miry clay finally in His appointed hour.All glory be God. 

  4. dear admin, God has authorized you to speak against that identity theft org. When the authorities during Jesus times questioned him about His authority, Jesus spoke courageously against their errors & hypocrisy. Where did you get His authority from? It’s from God Himself that gave Him the abilities to speak with authority & with power. God has, also given you the same authority too, hence whatever you say, there is a truth behind it. This Zion identity that the thief tpm had stolen, is being broken down by the authority of Jesus Christ. Amen!
