Beware of Receiving a `Different Gospel`!

7 You should realize, then, that the real descendants of Abraham are the people who have faith. 8 The scripture predicted that God would put the Gentiles right with himself through faith. And so the scripture announced the Good News to Abraham: “Through you God will bless all people.” 9 Abraham believed and was blessed; so all who believe are blessed as he was.... 16 Now, God made his promises to Abraham and to his descendant. The scripture does not use the plural “descendants,” meaning many people, but the singular “descendant,” meaning one person only, namely, Christ.... 28 So there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and free people, between men and women; you are all one in union with Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are the descendants of Abraham and will receive what God has promised. (Galatians 3)

Jerusalem is properly interpreted in the New Testament as Zion, the church of God in which salvation makes you a member...the kingdom of God which is HERE AND NOW wherever God`s will is done in our hearts. The apostles characterize literal Jerusalem (Jewry) as being the slave woman (Hagar), while the true Jerusalem--the TRUE CHOSEN PEOPLE and the TRUE ISRAEL--is the true church of God, whose kingdom is NOT OF THIS WORLD. Zion/Jerusalem is composed of all those who have received, follow in obedience, and surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not to be confused nor conflated with Jerusalem, those considered `Jews,` or the modern state of Israel!
