Since Ancient Rome is Gone, Why Does the Failed Name of 'Palestine' Persist

Reader comment on item: Trump's Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital – What Does It Mean?
in response to reader comment: Mandate for Palestine* – crucial terms

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 27, 2018 at 14:07

The existence of Jerusalem cannot be ignored anymore, the nom-de-guerre of al-Quds notwithstanding. The point of arguing the discernments of competing political entities about what they name should be is academic; and frankly, cannot be argued successfully under the current situational circumstances. But that is changing: American President Trump fulfilled a prophetic declaration and that is that.

The Mandate of the last century only fulfilled a temporary status of Biblical proportions; since that time, Biblical fulfillments are now occurring in such increasing moments of cadence, that the inevitability of all the fulfillment now have the opportunity to be fulfilled in the lifetime of the current generation. Placement of America's embassy in Jerusalem takes its clue from Isaiah 2:3 and many peoples shall come, and say:
["Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths."
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem]; and Micah 4:2
[and many nations shall come, and say:
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths."
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.]

Funny; see how they match, now coming to pass thousands of year later. But who is watching, like the Eternal Sovereign commands....who LORD, who???
