Of all the promises made and kept by Donald J. Trump, I believe the promise to move our embassy to the rightful capital of Israel, Jerusalem, may just be our saving grace. Let me explain.
I have been thinking, pondering how to reconcile my prayers for the success of POTUS in his quest to Make America Great Again with the prophecies of the end times in scripture. How can God make America Great if God is going to send His judgment upon her? I love my country. I have read much theorizing about America’s place in the coming ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ or Great Tribulation from several teachers of God’s Word. Despite knowing the evil of some of America’s policies in the past like slavery, and the evils within our national policies of today such as abortion I believe America was founded a God Fearing country and blessed because of her missionary zeal. America was great because America was good. In my heart, I understand YHWH God cannot and will not reward a nation’s sin. America has definitely fallen into sin. YHWH God is a God of mercy, but He is also a God of Judgment. He is a just God, who would have NONE perish, that is why he always sent his prophets to Israel to plead with them to repent and warn of coming judgment before each of His judgments on them. And it is why the Holy Spirit brings conviction to each sinners heart to draw them to repentance.
Amos 3:7 – Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
There are national sins and there is an individual’s sin. God exposes a nation’s sins to the leaders and the people of that nation before he punishes that nation just as he convicts an individual of their personal sin before Him. He did so with Israel before each captivity, and I believe He also warns the gentile nations before judging them via His servants.
I see this presidency, that of Donald J. Trump as one of EXPOSING wickedness in high places within America. Think of it this way, on an individual level, when the Holy Spirit brings a person under conviction for their sin that person is made very aware of the SIN to the point they cannot deny they need A Savior or they will be judged guilty when they stand before YHWH. They then cry out to Yeshua, Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and are made HIS righteousness. It is the same for nations, and I believe that YHWH God is in the process of bringing to light the evil present in the highest seats of government within our nation. It is why I am so intrigued by the Q phenomenon, and follow the several investigations of the DOJ and FBI so closely. But what then is needed when the crimes are all laid bare? Well of course as the temporal head of our government Donald Trump would do what he can to see this wickedness ended once it is fully exposed. I believe we’re in that process. It is no accident that people say if the criminals are not brought to justice America has for all intents and purposes died. The IDEA of Liberty and Justice for all is gone. I pray for Justice. I pray POTUS will be God’s instrument under our Constitution to bring that Justice.
I mentioned Jerusalem, and that I felt it was to be our saving Grace in all of this. In acknowledging Jerusalem as Israel’s rightful capital President Donald Trump has also acknowledged Israel’s sovereignty. And by extension God’s sovereignty over not only Israel as his Chosen but over the nations of the earth as well.
Isaiah 40:22-24 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
23 who brings princes to nothing,
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.
24 Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown,
scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth,
when he blows on them, and they wither,
and the tempest carries them off like stubble.
Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
(perhaps the Christian Standard translation will make it plainer)
For the LORD of Armies says this: “In pursuit of his glory, he sent me against the nations plundering you, for whoever touches you touches the pupil of my eye.
President Trump may or may not fully understand this concept, and for whatever reason, he may have in his heart to respect Israel’s sovereignty, the fact is HE DOES. And as the temporal head of this nation, he does so in our name. I do not know for sure, God has not spoken to me directly on this. But He has spoken in His Word. And in His Word, those who came against Israel, even as a tool for God’s judgment on them, have been heavily judged themselves. God Bless America, I pray.
Isaiah 43:1-3 But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
