So, what happened to the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem? (Jerusalem Connection)

February 17, 2017

So, what happened to the move of the embassy to Jerusalem?

Valerie Locke said: “President Donald Trump was prepared to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem the moment he took office, but reconsidered after taking into account how it would impact Israel’s relationship with its Arab neighbors…Moving the embassy to Israel’s capital had been one of Trump’s strongest campaigning points, and he had planned on making the controversial policy change the first of his presidency…Indeed, in the earliest days of his tenure, Trump’s team had already begun making statements on a possible move…

However, after considering the issue from a different angle, the president chose to hold back in order to better promote Israel’s interests. The Iran deal “brought the Arab community close to Israel. And so there’s a real working relationship there right now” which Trump didn’t want to jeopardize…So when you’ve got a situation like that, do you really want to destroy this alliance that is unprecedented and is real?”

Trump’s plans for the embassy will likely wait until his chosen ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, is confirmed before taking any concrete steps. Friedman has announced that as ambassador, he will break with tradition by living in his apartment in Jerusalem rather than the ambassador’s residence near Tel Aviv, where the embassy is currently located.

God says: “This is what Yahweh says: ‘I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of Yahweh Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”’… “And the name of the city from that time on will be: Yahweh IS THERE!” (Zechariah 8:3; Ezekiel 48:35)

The Jerusalem Connection says: The meeting between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu on Wednesday evidently went swimmingly well, from what was reported. The President is now willing to consider a one state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which is a significant break with the past. He asked the Prime Minister to maybe hold up on settlement building until “the art of the deal” is worked out, but then he probably felt he had to say that.

What was noticeably absent, either for or against, was any reference to the moving of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and thereby recognizing Jerusalem as the undisputed capital of Israel. While not making it public, my guess is that the delay in announcing the move is best explained by the above article. Never the less, in the mind of Yahweh it is an already established fact, as the above scriptures indicate. When Jesus ascended it was from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. When he descends it will be to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

  1. Indeed whatever is best for Israel! “When Jesus ascended it was from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. When he descends (Comes Again-Second Coming!) it will be to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.” (Zech. 14: 6, etc.) Come Lord Jesus!
