We are so pleased with the historic signing of the Peace Agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates today at the White House. President Donald Trump, Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed one of the most important Peace Agreements in the history of the Middle East. The Aaron Accords will be just one step in a long line of peace agreements between Israel and other nations who have historically been their enemy.
Today is an amazing day in history. It is beyond wonderful for God, for Israel, for the United States, and for the world.
Today May 14th, 2018, exactly 70 years after modern-day Israel was once again recognized as a nation, the United States has moved our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
During his campaign, US President Donald Trump said that this move would be happening, and as he has on numerous issues, the President has made good on his promise. Twelve other presidents have had the opportunity to do this, and no one else followed through.
Nearly standing alone, and receiving criticism from around the world, including many of our allies, we have Done The Right Thing when it comes to this issue.
God’s word tells us in Genesis chapter 12 starting verse 1, “The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
God was founding Israel as a nation, and later in 2 Samuel Chapter 5 -God anoints David as King and David choose Jerusalem as the location to lead the nation from.
5 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. 2 In the past, while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the Lord said to you, ‘You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.’”
3 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel.
4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. 5 In Hebron, he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem, he reigned over all Israel and Judah thirty-three years.
Pastor John Hagee said this at the official ceremony in Jerusalem:
“Jerusalem is the city of God, Jerusalem is the heartbeat of Israel, Jerusalem is where Abraham placed his son on the altar,” he continued. “Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end.”
Yes today, Israel and the United States stand arm-in-arm as we should. I’m proud to be a Christian, an American, and a brother to God’s Chosen People.
May this union last until the return of Christ our Savior and bless both Israel and the United States for what happened today!
This will be the first of several things that the Ed Boston Podcast will be doing on this historic day, the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
The following excerpt comes from a story at Newsweek.com.
President Donald Trump has fulfilled a “Biblical prophecy” by moving the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Judge Jeanine Pirro claimed on her Fox News show on Saturday. The new embassy, which has been met by criticism from Palestinians and the European Union, is set to open on Monday.
Pirro was in Israel ahead of the relocation from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Calling the move a “truly historic moment in Israel’s history,” Pirro said Trump’s decision to relocate the embassy was one celebrated by the people of Israel.
My good friend Trevor Decker has the following post up:
Not even 20 years into the 21st century, it seems like time is speeding up and global events happening one on top of the other. Could it be a sign of the end times?
These are some of the things Greg Laurie preaches about as pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Southern California and as an evangelist at huge Harvest Crusades across the globe.
