Zechariah 12:2a “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around…

December 6, 2017: President Donald Trump has authorized Congressional legislation from 1995 to proclaim Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel. He also initiated plans to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Trump has made it official.

See video link below for detailed analysis.

“Jerusalem is the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times. Today Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s government.” President Trump.

Jerusalem as the capital of Israel goes back 3,000 years to the time of King David. The city was captured from the Jebusites in 2 Samuel 5 by David.

In June of 2017, the United States Senate unanimously voted 90-0. The resolution urges the “president and all United States officials to abide by the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act.” The bill stated the following.

“Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected. There has been a continuous Jewish presence in Jerusalem for 3 millennia. Jerusalem is a holy city and the home for people of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths.”

 

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 is a public law of the United States. The law was passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995. The law states the United States Embassy in Israel should be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The law states Jerusalem is to be an undivided city. Jerusalem is recognized as the capital of Israel. This law was to be enacted by May 31, 1999.

This is a historic day. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for nearly 70 years. Jerusalem has been the focus of our hopes, our dreams, our prayers for three millennia. Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years. Thank you, @realDonaldTrump🇮🇱🇺🇸

Trump Jerusalem

Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas contacted Russian President Vladimir Putin, Moroccan King Muhammed, Pope Francis, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Jordan’s King Abdullah to stop President Trump’s intentions.

The religion of peace has predictably responded with threats of war and violence. President Trump has been told there is no seat at the “peace table” if he moves forward as promised.

Abu Rudeinah, Palestinian adviser indicated, “…the gravity of the consequences for the peace process and security and stability in the region and world.”

“…totally destroys any chance that he can play a role as an honest broker,” Palestinian Nabil Shaath, Abbas adviser.

In honor of President Trump’s declaration, Hamas has declared 3 Days of Rage instead of the usual one day.

Jerusalem and the nation of Israel are expecting violence.

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University.
When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing.
Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing.
Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies.
Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016.
In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries.
Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day.
That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project…
Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy.
At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
