Letter to the editor: Jerusalem, the capitol of Israel

President-elect Donald Trump’s team is moving forward on plans to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel out of Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. And that is causing Barack Obama, John Kerry, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the United Nations and most European leaders to pull their hair out.

Obama and Kerry are finally showing their true “anti-Israel” feelings that they’ve tried to hide from the American people for the past eight years.

And why are they so opposed to Donald Trump’s plan to move the Embassy? They know in their heart that Jerusalem belongs to Almighty God; and when Jesus returns, he will return to Jerusalem – and yet they, at their own peril, continue to provoke The Lord.

This is what the Lord says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain…”

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “I will save My people from the countries of the east and the west. I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.” (Zechariah 8:3, 7-8 NIV)

Let us pray that God will bless and protect the Trump administration and the United States in this bold move.
