To say that this is a momentous occasion would be an understatement of all understatements. Many prayers have been continually lifted up on behalf of Israel and America’s Embassy in Tel Aviv the moment the Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed as public law more than 20 years ago. The Act instructs the Embassy to be moved to the capital city of Jerusalem. Today, it has now become a reality. The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, has just announced that he is moving America’s Embassy in Israel, from the city of Tel Aviv, to Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem. This is a mighty day to celebrate.
This will be a day that many will remember in their lives and will forever be remembered as a turning point in the pages of history. As the city of Jerusalem has been a continual ‘topic of conflict’ in the Arab world, President Trump clearly understands that the same actions previously taken in decades past will not produce different results. “We are no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result.” In response, the President shares these historic remarks; “Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
John Hagee underscores our need to continue to pray for our President as well as America’s unwavering commitment to stand alongside our ally, Israel. “Let’s unite together on this historic day to pray for our President, our nation and the nation of Israel like never before. Let’s pray that the United States will remain resolute in its commitment and support of Israel…As Christians, it is our duty to minister to the Jewish people in a substantial and material way.” This move of America’s embassy is not just simply a fulfillment of what the Jerusalem Embassy Act stated, but it is much more than that. It is a declaration to the nations of the world that Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel, and America’s bond with Israel is as strong as iron. See the President share his statements on America’s Embassy in Israel, and so much more.
