To the editor:

President Trump is the first U.S. president to do the right thing in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcing he will move the American embassy to Jerusalem. Trump took a courageous stand and did what he promised in his campaign to do. It’s the right thing to do and may have been one reason the God of Abraham allowed him to win against all odds. Trump was recognizing reality. Palestinians have never had a capital or country and for the most part come from Jordan. King David made Jerusalem the capital of the Jewish state 3000 years ago. A nation has the right to decide on its own capital. Why should Israel be the exception? The God of Israel is the One who gave them the title deed to the land of Israel. God put His name on Jerusalem forever. It is and always will be the eternal capital of Israel. Woe to those who disagree. The nation of Israel is unique among all nations because it’s based on an everlasting covenant with God almighty.
The rebirth of the nation of Israel is unique among all nations in world history. Israel exists against all odds. The most obvious proof God wrote the Bible is the Jews and the nation of Israel. The Bible predicted their exile from the land and return just prior to the second coming of King Jesus.(Amos 9:14-15; Isaiah 11:11; Ezekiel 20:34) There’s no nation that was out of existence for 1900 years and came back. They even have the same capital (Jerusalem) and speak Hebrew which was an extinct language. You may doubt God exists but you can’t doubt Israel exists. Just get on a plane to Israel.
The United Nations (U.N.) is anti-Israel and doesn’t agree with President Trump about Jerusalem being the capital of Israel. Before Trump took office the U.N. in December 2016 voted to take Judea and Samaria from Israel. In November 2017 calling Israel the occupying power 151 nations voted in the U.N. to take Jerusalem from Israel. The Bible in Zechariah 12 says that God will destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem. Hundreds of Bible verses say Jerusalem and Israel belongs to the Jews. Even the Muslim Koran claims Israel belongs to the Jews says Professor Nissin Dana. Koran 7:7, says God bequeaths the land of Israel to the Jews. The Bible says God will send judgment on nations that try to divide the land He gave to Israel. Genesis 12:3 says, “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.” Obadiah 12: 3 says,”For the day of the Lord is near upon the heathen; as thou hast done (to Israel) it shall return upon your own head.” Dr. John McTernan wrote a book documenting examples of God’s judgments on nations going against Israel. America must stand with Israel to avoid God’s wrath.
Israel and Jerusalem are God’s end times clock. When the disciples asked Jesus what were the signs of His coming again? Jesus told them that the last generation wouldn’t pass away before they saw the things He revealed. As Israel had a rebirth in May 1948, it was the beginning of the end generation. Now 70 years later an average lifespan is ending. Though it could be 80 years as shown in Psalms 90:10 KJV. However King David died at age 70. Prophecy is unfolding before our eyes. Our Savior Jesus could return for His bride at any time. So we continue to look up and witness to those around us that they may be ready as well. As Titus 2:13 says, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ!”
The Bible tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem which is in effect praying for the return of Jesus. Jesus returns after the seven year tribulation to rule from Jerusalem not from America. Don’t be stressed about Israel’s survival but be justifiably concerned about America’s! May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you!
