Who Will Ready Face the Judgment if America Cannot Move Her Embassy?

Reader comment on item: A Conservative in the Age of Trump
in response to reader comment: I may dump Trump -- if he dumps Jerusalem

Herein lays the conundrum facing all true citizens of the United States of America: now that a change is conceived under a renewed authority, why is almost as much resistance that is being displayed by the secularist humanist sector of the American political demographic also found in the more subdued conscience of the conservative sector; to the extent that were it possible, could we turn back the tides of time and cast a new vote? Even those who prayed for a Christo-centric administration to stem the tide of anti-Christian polemics that sought to delegitimize the Constitutionally formed rights under the current form of government ought to remember the words the apostle Paul wrote regarding government: (Romans 13:1-4) "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.' " Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.' " For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,' "for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.
Further we read: (1Timothy 2:1-3) "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,' " for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.' "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,' "who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
America's treatment of Israel is in the books of judgment; and Israel's claim to Jerusalem, indeed all of the land given to Abraham's seed according to the promise, is already settled. Not everyone sees this. But even Trump is potentially aware of that, irrespective of the predecessor administrations' mishandling of this sacred oath.
Trump's promise to make the embassy move to Jerusalem is going to be fought, tooth and nail, not only by the virulent anti-Semite antics festering in the Middle East, but by similar antipathies here in America. Why does anyone believe this move has not already happened, except that few had the gumption of Truman when he declared America's recognition of Israel.
Question: what is the love of Israel worth? The Scripture is filled with how much her Almighty Eternal loves Israel. Who here in America, now that we have one more chance, will obey that?
America is on the verge of having one last chance before the LORD confronts the hatred directed towards Him through the hatred of Israel and eventually, His Mashiach, when Jerusalem is freed to worship Him as HE intended-and not as the world has resisted.
Trump is, potentially, merely a catalyst; the explosion the world is desperate to avoid comes not from a new America, but a new world order. There is nothing in Scripture that says it will come directly from America.
