God said, “I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.” (Zechariah 12:3)
On 19 December 2017, America stood alone in support of Jerusalem being recognized as Israel’s capital city.
Her courageous stand reminds me of this 1978 Christian album cover:
But, according to Zechariah 12:3 (above) all nations will be gathered against Jerusalem in the end time. America won’t be an exception–there won’t be any nations that support Israel. Therefore, if President Trump continues to support Jerusalem as Israel’s capital (which is the right thing to do) one of two things must happen:
- A future American government will stop its support and join other nations gathering against Jerusalem, or
- America’s power will be neutralized so that it’s not a significant factor in world affairs.
While America supports Jerusalem today, the Bible foretells the USA will not be Israel’s end-time savior and protector. Only God Himself will fulfill that role. Jesus will Himself deliver Jerusalem, slaughtering all the nations’ armies that gather against her, and then Jesus will establish His eternal throne over all the nations of the earth, ruling from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 63, Revelation 19:13, Jeremiah 31:17)
While I expect America’s stand concerning Jerusalem will cost the USA dearly, I’m proud of the stand we’re taking and I’d rather be on the God of Israel’s side than fighting against Him.
You’re not alone if you’re on God’s side. No Compromise!
