President Donald Trump has decided not to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem for now, signing a memorandum that explicitly requires the diplomatic mission to remain in Tel Aviv for at least six months, two administration officials said.
“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.” Zechariah 12:3 (KJV)
Moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was as foundational a campaign promise as building the wall and cutting taxes. It was one that Trump repeated over and over on the campaign trail, and swayed millions of Christians and Israeli Jews to throw their support his way. It was the number one reason why I voted for him, and as I have been saying for over a year now, it’s also the reason why the God of Abraham allowed him to win against all odds.
Those of you reading this might tell me that his decision is only in effect for 6 months, and that he will have 7 more opportunities to move the embassy during his tenure as president. That’s 100% true. But what is the reason he is not doing it now? The president retains full control to implement the move, having already been approved by Congress back in 1995, and reaffirmed by Congress in 2017. But that won’t wash, not one bit. The move of the embassy will cause Muslim outrage no matter when it is done, either today, in 6 months from today, in 6 years from today. That will never change, so that cannot be a reason why he’s not doing it.
The only other reason why he has decided not to move the embassy is because he thinks he can finally be the one that brings peace to the Middle East.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJV)
The Bible tells us that the next person to bring “peace to the Middle East” is Antichrist, and it will be a false covenant of peace which results in the Jews fleeing to Selah Petra to hide from the Devil for three and one half years. I am not, in any way, saying that Donald Trump is the Antichrist, not even close. But what I am saying is that he has broken a foundational campaign promise in the delusion that he and he alone can bring peace to the Middle East. He knows that by acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he loses any chance to bring the Muslims to the table. But the only way that Donald Trump can broker peace between the Jews and the Palestinians is if he really is the Antichrist. Think about that. No, I mean really think about that.
From Bloomberg News: His decision breaks a campaign pledge to move the embassy to Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, passed by Congress in 1995, requires the U.S. to move its embassy to Jerusalem. But it gives the president the ability to provide a six-month waiver, something each president has done since the 1990s.
While Trump campaigned saying he would move the embassy “fairly quickly” after taking office, he has instead decided to maintain the status quo as president, calling for fresh peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Trump visited Israel last month during his first foreign trip as president, meeting separately with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. source
