... Jerusalem ... 22 Just as the new earth and the new heavens will endure by my power, so your descendants and your name will endure ... Isaiah 66 (GNT), 18 ... Jerusalem will be rebuilt, and its PALACE restored. Jeremiah 30:18 (GNT)


The Kingdom! - The Kingdom


What will remain?
Biblical scripture always said that Jerusalem in the land of Israel will remain, Zechariah 12:6 (NIV),
6 “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.

Jacob that is the Israelites, whom will keep God's land of Israel for ever - Isaiah 60:21 - will remain, Jeremiah 30:6-7 (NIV),
6 ... every face turned deathly pale? 7 How awful that day will be! No other will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it.

12 The angel wearing linen clothes said, “At that time the great angel Michael, who guards your people, will appear. Then there will be a time of troubles, the worst since nations first came into existence. When that time comes, all the people of your nation whose names are written in God's book will be saved. 2 Many of those who have already died will live again: some will enjoy eternal life, and some will suffer eternal disgrace. Daniel 12:1-3 (GNT)

The Israelites, the Jews as a people, a nation, is the only one on this planet about whom God says will remain, 
22 “Just as the new earth and the new heavens will endure by my power so your descendants and your name will endure. 23 On every New Moon Festival and every Sabbath people of every nation will come to worship me here in Jerusalem,” says the Lord. Isaiah 66:22-23 (GNT) 

What else will remain?  
31 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. ... 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth. ...

... 44 “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. ... Daniel 2 (NIV)

It is God's Kingdom which will endure for ever that will be the Unshakable Kingdom - Hebrew 12:28 - which will ultimately cover the whole world. The later won't be a one days work, Revelation 20:1-6. Just like the work of the growing stone has been on going for ages.
