Move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Now!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem has been put on the back burner for decades now.  President Trump made a campaign promise to move our embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, at this point in time it has yet to happen.

Recently we are hearing talk that the President is contemplating the move, however we have not heard of any definitive decisions being made.

I for one believe that we need to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and we need to do it now!  This move has been upon my heart heavily for the past year, I have wanted it done for much longer, however I knew that during the last administration it would never happen, not as long as President Obama was in office.

By moving the U.S. embassy to the city of Jerusalem, we are telling the world that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, we are denouncing Islamic and UN claims that the city is not Israels capital city.  When we move the city to Jerusalem, then we are supporting Israel, we are supporting God’s chosen people, we are agreeing with God that this is His holy city, the city where He put His name!

When we as a people oppose what God has ordained as holy, then we are in opposition to God Himself!  The United States has been on a downfall for decades, morally declining due to the fact of being in rebellion to God, by taking God out of our schools, out of our institutions, out of our government, and steadily out of society.

Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem is much more than just an act of where we place our embassy, it goes much deeper than that!

For the United States to remain blessed by God we must return to God as a nation, and a part of that is to bless the nation of Israel, to honor them as a people, as God’s chosen people!  By continuing to keep our U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv we are not honoring Israel, we are not standing beside them as a true friend and ally, by the same token we are not honoring God!

God has blessed America by being one nation under God, a nation founded upon His morals, values, and principles.  If America continues to fall away from God then it will suffer the consequences, it will be judged by God, it will pay the price, it will fall.  However, with the current administration there has been a return to God, at least in the administration.  Our nation remains split between those for God and those opposing Him, composed of those who call themselves Christians and those who are anything but!  Is this the straw that breaks the proverbial camels back?

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Without faith it is impossible to please God, and faith without works is dead!  It’s not merely enough to talk about moving the embassy to Jerusalem, if we don’t actually do it then our faith is dead, our talk is nothing more than talk, empty words without meaning or substance.

Let us pray that our President has the wisdom and the courage to make this move!  Let us pray that those around him give him wise counsel, that our administration makes the right decision, and let us pray that it happens soon!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Gordon, I know that a lot of Christians are jumping on the “yes bless me too” wagon of having the US embassy moved into Jerusalem. The US embassy was opened in 1966 In Tel Aviv. Why are Christians are just now taking up the cause of wanting to see it moved to Jerusalem???? Where have they all been for the past 50 years???

    Let me tell you something my friend Gordon, you don’t live in or near Jerusalem, you have no idea how the Palestinians are going to react when our embassy is moved. You think there are hostilities now!!!, Palestinians would demand that the U. S. open an embassy in East Jerusalem and recognize it as well as the capital of a Palestinian state in response to a move.

    The Palestinians don’t give a pile of donkey do about our Christian faith. They would just as soon kill us as look at us. So brother don’t go laying the “FAITH ENOUGH” trip on me.

    My faith in in a constant strain just from attacks from the enemy on me and my family to even go near whether there is an embassy located in Jerusalem or not.
    Man !!! get out of here with that “FAITH ENOUGH GUILT TRIP” stuff!!! That’s so shallow.

    Never for a second will American embassy personnel be safe working there, it’s highly likely there will be assassinations of our staff. Then what do you do, gather up all your Christian friends and go over there and start a war with the Palestinians over an embassy, How many millions of local muslims are going to be embroiled and possibly take up arms against Israel and kill innocent civilians as a result of an embassy move. How are you going to keep the peace with the Palestinians after the move, YOU WON’T. The move will be like lighting fire to gasoline. Guarantee for sure many people are going to die. Do you take responsibility for that Gordon. Israeli soldiers will die. Jesus is not interested in where our embassy is located in Israel, He will establish Jerusalem as the capitol of the whole world when He returns. In the meantime unless you and your friends are willing to go live in the hostile environment you would create for so many others in Israel then leave the subject out of whether it is a matter of Christians having faith or not. God does not want America to go into a conflict over the matter of an embassy.

    Let me educate you on something my friend: THE SOIL ON WHICH AN EMBASSY BUILDING SITS DOES NOT DETERMINE THAT ANYONE WILL RECOGNIZE THAT SOIL AS THE CAPITOL OF THE LAND OR NATION!!!!

    If you are trying to tell me that by opening our embassy in Jerusalem will automatically make Jerusalem capitol of Israel then you need to talk to about 2.5 million Palestinians living in and beside Jerusalem . Even the most astute Israeli’s don’t believe that lie. For the most part Israel wants America to leave their embassy in Tel Aviv. They don’t want the war and violence that will come with the move.
    Think this through man, think this through. For God’s sake, do you really want people to die for the location of a building?

    My friend, America having it’s embassy in Jerusalem will have nothing to do with whether we are a Godly people. America is a nation of people floundering on the edge of oblivion experiencing God’s judgment in every area of life.

    With the current Trump administration there “has not” been a return to God, that’s a lie. America is drifting farther and farther away from God each and every day. Not closer.

    Right now, God is blessing Israel in huge ways, in every way God is blessing Israel, Israel is the wealthiest nation in the world in oil and gas reserves. Technologies for water and agriculture. America gives Israel over $114 billion every year, There is nothing we can do to improve on what God is already doing. We would do well to help our own nation and communities before poking our noses in other peoples business. We have nothing to prove to the muslims, that is nonsense. That’s 8th grade thinking.

    America is being cursed by its own willful turning away from God mostly having nothing to do with Israel. Our own willful rebellion and sin is 99% of our problem.

    We could see the embassy go to Jerusalem and then nothing would change in America because there is too much sin here already.

    Who made you, Gordon the arbiter of proclaiming God’s good on America because of a works based cult like effort to effect the move of an embassy. Remember we already give
    Israel over $114 billion each year, so don’t quote Gen. 12;3 to me. I have never cursed Abram nor will I ever have a chance.

    NO, A persons view on whether the American embassy should be located in Jerusalem is not the straw that breaks the camels back.

    Get this straight my friend: ISRAEL AND IN PARTICULAR JERUSALEM WILL NOT BE BLESSED BY AN EMBASSY MOVE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. YOU ARE ONLY ADVOCATING FOR SOMETHING THAT WILL BRING MISERY FOR OUR JEWISH FRIENDS LIVING IN ISRAEL.

    JESUS WILL TAKE CARE OF THE MATTER WHEN HE COMES BACK.

    I pray for the peace of Jerusalem and a big part of that prayer is that the peace will not be turned into violence by America trying to move their embassy into Jerusalem. I don’t want the curse of bloodshed that will come with it and neither do the Jews living there. God bless Israel by keeping our embassy out of Jerusalem.

    • Thanks for your comment Ethin!

      Say what you will Ethin, the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem is the right thing to do. Whether or not the Muslims threaten, they are already. So do we cower down to Islam because they threaten us? Do we allow evil people to control our thoughts and our actions? And if we ourselves allow our actions to be controlled by what evil people do and think that what does that make us? Doing the right thing often draws criticism, and as a believer you should know that.

      Whether or not you believe that God will bless us for doing the right thing I do. Do I believe that there will be repercussions from moving the embassy? Yes I do.

      The Christian baker who refused to make a cake for a gay couple stood his ground, he did what was right, yet he suffered a response which he did not deserve, yet he stood for his faith, he stood for God. If he knew that he would suffer at the hands of opposition should he then have just compromised and gave in? Is this how we as believers are to act? I think not.

      If President Lincoln did not push and promote the abolition of slaves because he knew that there would be dire consequences should he have then just accepted slavery for what it is, instead of fighting to abolish it? No! He did the right thing even though he knew that the consequences would be high.

      The move of the American embassy to Jerusalem is much more and goes much deeper than meets the eye, it is much, much more than merely moving a building to another city. This is a holy war being fought by Islam, and the move of the embassy is not going to make these people want to destroy Israel anymore than they already do! It is a war of right and wrong, a war of good versus evil, a battle between the forces of evil and God’s chosen people. By moving the embassy to Jerusalem we are standing by our ally Israel, we are supporting them in the face of darkness and evil in the world. The Muslims will use this as an excuse to incite more violence, however, this does not mean that we cower down and do nothing as usual. They will use every excuse on the books and many, many more in an effort to annihilate the Jews, and for that matter Christians as well!

      The world is a mess, it is full of evil and darkness, we as believers are the light of the world, it is up to us to do the right thing! And if we stop doing the right thing because we fear what will come, then we have given ourselves over to the darkness!

      Of course I want peace, and I pray for the peace of Jerusalem regularly. However, we cannot control the acts of the wicked, and the world has cowered to the wicked, siding with the Palestinians who have stated over and over and over again to annihilate the Jews! The peace they seek is not real peace, but the destruction of God’s chosen people.

      I stand for what is good and righteous, I stand for what God has ordained as righteous and holy, and I stand for Israel! And if we cannot stand for God’s chosen people then who do we stand for? It’s not always about ourselves, we must think outside of our own box, we must be willing to do what is right in the face of adversity! I am in no way advocating for violence against the Jews, on the contrary, anything but.

      We need to know that the good Lord is for us, that He wants us to do what is right and not side with the darkness in the world. And if we do not believe that He will then who are we really?! So you say that it is a curse of bloodshed, a curse by whom? Certainly not a curse from God!

      Genesis 12:3
      “I will bless those who bless you,
      And I will curse him who curses you;
      And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

      Bible prophecy speaks about Jerusalem being a heavy stone for all people, and those who would heave it away will be cut into pieces.

      Zechariah 12:1-6
      “The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: 2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. 4 In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. 5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their God.’ 6 In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem.”

      The world is wicked place and it will get worse, scripture tells us this. I believe that the move to Jerusalem is the right thing to do in God’s eyes, you disagree. Whether or not we do or don’t the world will continue to get worse until the coming of Christ. Whether or not we move the embassy to Jerusalem the Muslims will continue with their plan to annihilate the Jews and the Christians! The move to Jerusalem is not inciting anything that is not already in the works by Islam, don’t fool yourself.

      God bless! Maranatha!

  2. Donald Trump never intended on moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. He knew that by promising to do it, he would get more votes. The whole embassy move thing was only a political ploy.
    It is highly probable that He will open a Consultant General’s office there somewhere in a low key office space in Jerusalem and proclaim it as part of our embassy which will in turn make you’all happy. Trump has already said in many campaign speeches that He believes that Jerusalem is the eternal city of Israel, so he has already covered his b-hind on the matter.

  3. Gordon, I am watching the developing events very closely now that the middle ease is about to erupt info flames over the prospect of Trumps embassy move plan.
    I don’t like the word “stupid” I would never use the word ‘stupid’ however the word insane comes to mind with the proposed plan to move the embassy.
    Christians have absolutely no business poking at the issue, this is not our battle, we are not crusading warriors on our mighty steeds commissioned by God to go off to foreign lands and conquer in the name of an embassy location.

    The Terror group Hamas is calling for a “day of rage” Friday, December 8 urging Palestinians to protest President Donald Trump’s plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
    All embassies in the middle east are now in jeopardy of violence because of the planed DAY OF RAGE. Turkey’s president has called for the embassy move as a “red line” which Turkey will fight against. This is absolutely stup – I mean insane.
    I have yet to see one of these “day of rage” unless someone or many muslims die as martyrs for their cause. Absolutely senseless.

    My take on the coming situation is that; If Christians advocate for the embassy move then they will have a taint of blood on their hands for an unworthy cause.

  4. A potential world war about to erupt in Korea over their threat to hit America with a nuclear tipped missile? Do we really want something so trivial as an embassy move to enflame the entire middle east in a war also???
