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!
