Make No Mistake; The American Embassy in Jerusalem was No Mistake...

Reader comment on item: Interview: U.S. Embassy Move May Bring Regrets

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 21, 2018 at 11:16

The American move to place the representation of the American alliance with Israel adjacent to the Israeli heart of government, was, is, will forever remain among the most terrifying of political actions in international politics, the results of which, as many have noted here and elsewhere, are going to lead to the most tumultuous period of the history of the earth; the resistant world will see to that. But there's a problem.

It is not a random decision that placed the American embassy in Jerusalem; this was an action that was long in coming (long before the American legislature set the deal up); it was inevitable. Until this truth is recognized, it remains a problem for the world that it cannot resolve. We see the inaction of the United Nations to conform to its original rules of governance to obtain PEACE FOR ALL; and Israel remains targeted for the political excesses of international terrorism: what does the world expect to happen for its intransigence? In the past few hours, the United States pulled out of a UN agency for that reason.

Ultimately, the rest of the modern world will come to recognize that Jerusalem, in the land of Israel, is the center of the Jewish nation, the same recognition the ancient world already recognized and witnessed to in the Hebrew Holy Writ. The American embassy move is confirmation of that fact from a nation that was created for this moment, to be an authentication of the Scripture in preparation for Israel to be the place that her Messiah will return to; there is no turning back. It's not man's strategy; it happened because the Scripture says it is so.
