    Be careful with words and writings concerning Jerusalem . Many people throughout the whole world are judging matters they do not understand . Rushing ones opinion about Jerusalem can be a fatal mistake that have serious consequences . ALMIGHTY GOD is doing something there that we do not understand . I warn everyone everywhere not to bring hasty judgements on matters that belong to GOD alone . GOD will act at his own time .Be careful is my advise to everyone.

    Within 1 year trump has brought the usa back its respect. Israel is a great ally of the us, and the is congress voted to make this move. Trump has the balls to do it. Also, all these peace agreements with palestinians or virtally all middle east countries aren't worth the paper on which they are written. The maniac is north korea will soon be put in line. Pretty sure trump agreed not to destroy the chinese with more trade regulation, etc., in exchange for them getting Kim in check. Finally a president who says something, and does it, no matter how much fake criticism. A leader.

    The reason why Trump's acknowledgment of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is so powerful is because it's the Truth, with a capital T! In other words, the power of the Holy Spirit underpins the very acknowledgement itself. It therefore follows that any nation that says otherwise is now being marked for destruction in God's wrath! With 1.5 billion Arabs in a blind rage over Trump declaring Jerusalem the Capital of Israel, our not being here for Christmas is now on a fast-track to becoming a reality!!!
    "...Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." [Luke 21:24] Even though Israel recaptured Jerusalem, in the 6 day war, in 1967. The UN, which represents all the Christian and Muslim Gentile nations, is still trampling Jerusalem by not acknowledging the City as the capital of Israel. Note the definition of to trample: To treat with contempt. " synonyms: ride roughshod over, disregard, set at naught, show no consideration for, treat inconsiderately, treat disrespectfully, take for granted, encroach on, infringe." This is how the UN have been treating Israel, with regards to Jerusalem, for the last 50 years! A "time" in Scripture means 1 Year. More than "a time", therefore, means more than a year. Since 1967, 50 times [that is, 50 Years] have been fulfilled. The times of the Gentiles [i.e. the UN] is up. They're about to be judged! This is why President Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on the 6th of December 2017. It simply couldn't have been done before now because the times of the Gentiles had to be fulfilled first. We already know what's going to become of all the nations that make up the UN. It's not good. They're digging there own graves.
    "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their God.’ In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a fire-pan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem." [Zech.2:2-6]
    The UN is made up of Christian as well as Muslim nations.The Christian nations are Roman Catholics. Pope Frances, who speaks on their behalf, doesn't acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He is therefore bringing God's wrath down on 1.2 billion Roman Catholics worldwide. As part of the UN, all the Christian nations the Pope represents are going to be destroyed too! The UN gathered together to vote against Israel's legitimate claim over Jerusalem. They've have now locked themselves into making mad decisions that's going to bring about their immediate and swift destruction.

      Eltener123 You really have no idea how foolish, spiritually corrupt and abominable you've become in posting such a comment. Mock and scoff all you want, I assure you, you won't be doing it for too long! "The fool has said in his heart,
      “There is no God.”
      They are corrupt,
      They have done abominable works,
      There is none who does good." [Psalm 14:1]

    Crowder debunks the Islamist NYT!
    "Jerusalem is just as holy to Judaism as Islam"
    First, the 1922 Palestine mandate had Jews containing everything and TransJordan for Arabs. The Arabs couldnt even stand the 1948 concession. In the Torah they believe the temple is one of the requirements for salvation in the future, much like Islam believes Hajj to Mecca is required for salvation. In Islam its mentioned 0 times in the Quran and 500+ in Torah. It's only mentioned in the Hadith as a "far away mosque" and then guessed to be Jerusalem when they didnt even bother naming it.
    "Every administration said Jerusalem must be decided by peace talks"
    Every President since Clinton has supported Jerusalem being the capital regardless of it being agreed to by Hamas. This passed congress.
    "the United States Embassy in Israel should be estab-lished in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999" Just pussyfooting around is the issue.

That is where the tribes go up—the tribes of the Lord—to praise the name of the Lord according to the statute given to Israel. There stand the thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure

    how could Mohammed "ascend into heaven" from Jerusalem when he eventually died of his poisoning in 632AD, in Medina? A dead body has a tendency to go "off" in that sort of heat. That's why Middle Easterns don't eat pork - no proper storage facilities back then.

      The solution is simple. Jews need to let go of their jewishness/judaism and arabs need to let go of their arabness/islam/christianity.
      Then make 1 nation with a new name for all peoples, with the right of return for all people.
      If they truly want Peace, then that is what they will do.
      There is no israeli brain or palestinian brain.
