U.S. embassy in Jerusalem
Will it be built on Mount Zion?
By Craig C. White
U.S. President Donald Trump intends to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This would declare Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel. President Trump said that It will take three or four years to build the new embassy. Nobody yet knows exactly where the new U.S. embassy will be built but I am certain that the government of Israel will do everything that they can to accommodate the building of the new embassy.
I wonder if the U.S. embassy will become a place of refuge for the last Jews in Jerusalem?
I know that the Jews living in Judea are instructed to flee into the Judean wilderness when the Antichrist attacks Jerusalem BUT the Jews that are caught inside of Jerusalem are told to wait on Mount Zion for their Messiah to return.
When the Antichrist attacks Jerusalem God instructs the Jews there to return and rest. Anyone who tries to flee Jerusalem will be captured (Isa 30:16). Then the residue of the city will huddle together on Mount Zion (which is the “City of David”) in Jerusalem and wait for their redeemer.
Isa 30:15-18 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. 16 But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift. 17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. 18 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. 19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
Mount Zion is located to the south of the Temple Mount. Mount Zion is also called the city of David. The city of David is the oldest and original site of the city of Jerusalem. Let’s see if the U.S. embassy will be placed in the city of David.
For the U.S. embassy to become the prophetic place of refuge it would need to be built in the city of David (or Mount Zion). It would also need to be built before the middle of the seven year long Tribulation period. That is when the Antichrist will attack Jerusalem beginning Jerusalem’s great tribulation. The Bible says that for any Jews to be saved who have been caught inside of Jerusalem when the Antichrist attacks they must return and wait on Mount Zion. These are those Jews who have not been subjected to death, captivity, hardship, or starvation.
Concerning moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem; Turkish President Erdogan said, “Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is a red line for all Muslims”. “We will gather the whole of the Muslim world”.
Now do you believe me when I say that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist?

It’s a bold, courageous move on Trump’s part. I’m glad he signed the executive decree to get the ball rolling today. I know this was divinely orchestrated. And hostile Muslim leaders such as Erdogan condemn it. Another reason for Erdogan’s forces to push further south. Interesting indeed!
I totally agree with everything you wrote Brian.
Why are so many Christians against Jerusalem as Israel’s capital? Do they not read the Bible and know that we are to support Israel?
I have read where there are evangelicals who are against it. I really don’t understand why. Is this the time where the Bible says that the road is narrow like in Matthew 7:14?
I am glad we have a strong, courageous President right now. I think divine intervention keeps him there and helps in some of his decisions.
Thank you Craig for this web site too and working so hard to keep it up. I appreciate your hard work that goes into it. I look forward to reading it and having other brothers and sisters in Christ to discuss Bible prophecy with.
I think those that are against Jerusalem, are lukewarm Christians that have not read their bible. I strongly believe it was divinely orchestrated as well. God is in control, He is Sovereign.
Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
This is a very exciting time to be alive, of all years in the past, here we are! God bless you all!
This is going to be very long! Doesn’t the book of Daniel (in prophecy) state that the Antichrist will come from the people that destroyed Israel’s final temple? If so, how does Erdogan, who you say will be Antichrist, who wants to reestablish a Moslem Caliphate, fit into the picture? I recently read an article from an email I get from WND, that the Antichrist will probably be from Saudi Arabia because, though Rome destroyed the temple, Rome had much of that army filled with Arabian soldiers because Rome used many mercenaries. So Arabians destroyed the last temple. Also, a WND email states that the capital of Antichrist will probably be in Arabia because Saudi Arabia plans to build a new city that will be very technologically advanced. Much of the city with be run by robots. It will be a huge city. I don’t have name of city, I should have it here but didn’t write it down before I started writing this. Sorry. I know you think it will be Dubai. Another WND email states what President Trump is doing with Jerusalem (moving our embassy there) couldn’t be done without the cooperation of the king of Saudi Arabia. Please answer here and send me a personal email to my email address. In Christ, thank you very much!
Hey Fred. I wouldn’t base my assumption about who the Antichrist is on one verse. First of all everybody has a different idea about what this verse means.
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall bewith a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
It seems obvious that this verse was fulfilled in 70 AD when Rome destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the temple, so the prince could only refer to the Roman Empire. Or since the verse doesn’t specifically identify a nation then perhaps it has a double application, meaning Rome and also the future Antichrist nation.
Fred, when we start debating robot cities then it’s time to recognize that we have made a wrong turn somewhere along the line.
