On December 6th, 2017, a historic landmark moment was inscribed into the pages of history. The 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, made the remarkable decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announce that he is moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” It was this declaration that every President, since the passing of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, refused to make. The President wasted no time in calling out how past Presidents ran their campaigns for Presidency on the promise of making this move, only to prove their promises to be futile. When past Presidents insisted on the division of Israel in order to bring peace in the Middle East, President Trump insisted on a different approach. President Trump has displayed, yet again, another promise has been fulfilled.
Pastor John Kilpatrick, of Church of His Presence, shared exhilarating remarks in response to the President’s decision as well as a personal blessing over the President and his family. In Pastor Kilpatrick’s words, he underscores the momentous occasion that this is. “Just as America recognized Israel when it became a nation in 1948, yesterday was equally important”. It is absolutely that we grasp the significance of this event. As Israel’s closest ally, America has positioned itself closer alongside Israel than it ever has before. The world can only watch how the President is leading America in this hour. Pastor Kilpatrick continues to share kind and candid words as he speaks a profound blessing over the President.
We bless our President, Donald J. Trump. You have come to the Presidency of these United States for such a time as this. You are a modern-day Jehu. You are unafraid to carry out the unpleasant assignments that must be done. What others could not, and would not even attempt, you stepped up and shifted the nation out from under godlessness, indecisiveness, and leading from behind. You are restoring the blindfold over the eyes of Lady Justice once again. You have put salt and light back into the highest court of the land. You are removing the oppressive yoke from the necks of the people. And now, you have singlehandedly aligned yourself, and this nation, with the heart and purposes of Jehovah God concerning the nation of Israel; and in particular, Jerusalem.
We declare that you are protected and defended by the Host of Heaven. Weapons may be formed against you by a myriad of enemies, but they shall not prosper. They will backfire. God shall frustrate the token of the liars. We bless you. We bless your wife Melania, as well as your extended family to know that there is a wall of fire round about you, and a canopy of glory over your heads. We declare that although you have just begun, you will finish. You will accomplish all that you have been called to do. Only time will tell how the gift of your Presidency to this nation has changed the course of history in this season. So, may God bless the President of the United States. May God bless the United States. And, may God really bless the Church for praying for our President; especially in this time. Thank you very much.
Often times, we don’t recognize the significance of the moment that we are a part of until time passes, and history reveals the course of events that we did not have the eyes to see. Today, we can take this moment and grasp what is happening in our midst. Pastor Kilpatrick previously shared a prophetic word at the beginning of President Trump’s Presidency and how the Lord was going to use him to align America alongside Israel, and bless Israel. As he shares, the Lord spoke to him about former President, Harry Truman, President Trump, and how truth will rise again. It is only by the mighty Hand of God that we are witnessing these profound events.
As Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, shared his own inspiring remarks in response to the President’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “This is a historic day”, is how the Prime Minister begins. Contrary to what many would perceive regarding issues in the Middle East, the Prime Minister reveals truth that simply cannot be denied. “Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years.” The Prime Minister continues, “We’re profoundly grateful for the President for his courageous and just decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to prepare for the opening of the US embassy here.”
As the Prime Minister continues, he emphasizes how this matter will greatly affect peace negotiations between Israel and their neighbors in the Middle East. “The President’s decision is an important step towards peace, for there is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.” It is such a refreshing wind to see the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Israel sharing such kind words regarding one another. Additionally, the Prime Minister encourages the nations of the world to take notice to President Trump’s decision to move America’s embassy to Jerusalem, and move their nation’s embassies as well.
