Trump Prophetically Enlightened?

Presidents of the recent past have made statements that I recall as having Bible prophecy in view. I haven’t researched to find these statements in their exact verbiage, but they were made and could be rather easily found with today’s search engines.

I remember that Jimmy Carter referred to the Holy Land as having biblical and historical importance according to Israel’s prophets. Ronald Reagan sometimes would refer to the Second Coming of Christ and the reality of Armageddon. Bill Clinton once said that his pastor, Dr. W. O. Vaught, told him when Clinton was governor of Arkansas that if Bill ever became president, he had better treat Israel according to Genesis 12. –This, regarding the blessings or cursing to be given by the Lord, Himself, depending upon whether one blessed or cursed Israel.

President Donald Trump, in talking about his decision declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital, and announcing he will move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, said something of profound significance, in my view. He announced a number of important reasons for his decision. Then he said: “…It is reality, And, its the right thing to do.”

One must wonder how much of this president’s declaring Israel’s eternal capital and moving the embassy there is based upon true understanding of why it’s “the right thing to do.”

A considerable amount of the criticism I’ve heard about Trump’s decision comes from a specific, leftist diatribe. These say it’s the crazy evangelical Zionists who base Israel’s right to the land they “occupy” upon the Bible. The word “Bible” is dripping with vitriol, even when read rather than heard. It’s like they are saying”…the Bible!…Ugh!”

Trump is listening to the Bible thumpers and doing it for their votes. That is the rant. Yet, the following Bible truth is exactly what makes Mr. Trump’s decision to declare Israel’s capital Jerusalem and move the American Embassy there the “right thing to do.”

Jerusalem, is, in fact, chosen by the Lord of Heaven to be at the center of His chosen land for His chosen people:

But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. Now it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel. But the LORD said to David my father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an house for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart: Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name. The LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel. And in it have I put the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, that he made with the children of Israel. (2 Chronicles 6:6-11)

Almost every leader on the world stage at present is against the decision. Even our closest allies, like British Prime Minister Theresa May, are adamantly against the declaration and the move. Yet this president is unmoved. He seems determined to carry out the promise that presidents preceding him didn’t have the political will or courage to honor. –That of proving America’s commitment to declaring Jerusalem Israel’s capital by moving the embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Trump is one who has proven that he keeps promises, even bucking the heavy resistance of opposition from outside his own political party and from within. He forges ahead, despite the world’s opposition to this decision. He doesn’t wither under the fire of the fanaticism of the Islamic world that rages with hatred for Israel.

It is not possible for me to know for certain, but I strongly suspect that Christian counsel from people such as Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, have made it known to the president the truth about Israel from God’s perspective. Thankfully, Mr. Trump has wisely listened to such counsel, it appears. America stands in much better stead with the Almighty with this fulfilled, presidential promise.

    I strongly believe that President Donald John Trump is Jehovah’s man at such a time as this, to me he’s a Cyrus mentioned 150 years by name by Jehovah himself to free His (God’s) people from slavery, ref: Isaiah 45

    Trump is the first President in 30 years to do the RIGHT thing, and agree that Israel should have Jerusalem as their Capitol. The Jews have been there for 3 thousand years, and King David designated Jerusalem as the Capitol . Fact. The Palestinians paid no attention to Jerusalem until recent history when it became a bargaining chip under their leader, Arafat.

    In ref: to Jerusalem …and the Palestinians (Arab Muslims). I’m understanding that in 135 AD Emperor Hadrian conquered Judea and Samaria. He also captured (and temporarily changed) the City of Jerusalem and renamed it Aelia Capitolina (After one of the Roman pagan gods) and renamed Judea and Samaria (the mountains of Israel known today as …the West Bank)..”.Palestine” after Israel’s worst ancient enemies…the Philistines! Towards the end of WW 2 the British had control of the area (Trans-Jordan etc) and called everyone in the area ” Palestinians” (both Jews and Arab Muslims) Over a short time it eventually came to an understanding that the Arab Muslims were to be called “Palestinians”, maybe due to their large number and the PLO influence. At the time, all an Arab Muslim had to do was live in the area for a period of 2 years and they could be considered…”A Palestinian”! The above is my present understanding and is here for your own research!

    As for that great city of our God :Zechariah 12:2,3 King James Version (KJV)

    12:1, The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

    2, Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

    3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

    I think one reason Trump is a doing the right thing is he is NOT a career politician and hey is rich, probably richest president we have had so it is a lot harder to try to force him to do their will and since not a career politician does not have to toady to the political elites. Just a thought. It does seem that we are getting closer to being called home.
