I watched the Opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem today. It was a truly touching ceremony for anyone who knows the Word of God.
Israel is the apple of God’s eye, and Jerusalem is the city He chose to put His name on:
“…that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.” ~I Kings 11:36
So it was truly touching to watch our Nation and our President honor that city by finally placing our embassy in the capital there. We, as a Nation, had promised to move the embassy there many years ago. But not until President Trump has there been a president courageous enough to keep that promise.
God promises to seek the good of those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.” ~Psalm 122:6-9
It could be that the Lord will pour out His mercy on our country, give us a bit more time to repent and turn back to Him, because of this move by our Nation to honor Jerusalem.
It is a remarkable day in the history of our Nation and our world. I don’t know about you but I’m keeping my eye on Jerusalem even more than I usually do. All of prophesy hinges on that city. It will be exciting to see those things come to pass in our lifetime.
Do you know the God of Jerusalem? Is He your Saviour? I would certainly be thrilled to share with you how He can be. Just drop me a message if you’d like to know Him today.
