While it may seem that President Trump (that feels good to be able to call out a president again) is going soft by not immediately moving diplomatic relationships with Israel onto the holy ground of Jerusalem, it is not political reluctance that keeps the move from happening in the time frame many would like to see: if, as we know the Holy Ground belongs to the LORD, then it is the LORD's timing that will see the move made. But we who know, know that eventually, IT WILL HAPPEN.

Zechariah 14:16) And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

From the mortal perspective, though, the President is likely considering that the 'move-in' costs are going to be more than starting a new Casino; blood and treasure, American blood and treasure, is on the line and that cost is not going to be one that the 'other half' of the country will not be willing to offer since they are not yet past the reality that the agenda of the 44th 'Chief Executive' did not leave his post willingly or with any moral aplomb.

The rest of the United Nations are not so clean in this either and are still behind the 'Palestinian' agenda as well. Russia's investment in this remains very dramatically plain and the Golan has already seen the initial moves of their own along with the accomplices from Iran. Film at eleven...
