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?
