President Trump is losing support among Evangelical Christians because of his unfulfilled promise on Jerusalem

JD: You know often when I teach about the city of Jerusalem I remind everybody that God gave Jerusalem to the Jewish people about 3,000 years ago, II Samuel chapters 5, 6, and 7. It’s the political capital, the spiritual capital, and the eternal capital according to those three chapters. Now David what I would love for you to do is continue that and embellish it a bit and talk about pro Israeli evangelicals. And are they Biblically correct in believing that Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the Jewish people?

DJ: Well they are absolutely are Biblical. Let’s start with Zechariah 2:8 which the context is talking about Jerusalem and the prophet says, he who touches you meaning Jerusalem touches the apple of my eye. So the Lord’s focus and attention is on Israel as you said as the eternal capital of Israel. And ultimately the eternal capital of the world and the eternal capital of God’s kingdom here on the earth.

But let’s go back to Genesis chapter 12 where we have the Abrahamic Covenant and God promises a land, which goes from the river of Egypt that’s the Nile River to the great river Euphrates, a huge piece of real estate. And we also know that he’s promised descendants and blessing to Abraham and his descendants. We also know that there was a man who was the king of Jerusalem Melchizedek and Abraham and paid ties to him that was looking forward to the Levitical priesthood. You mention II Samuel chapter 5 but if you look at II Samuel chapter 7 that’s the Davidic Covenant where God promises an eternal kingdom to the descendants of David where God promises he’s going to establish David’s dynasty and this is the eternal undivided capital of Israel and ultimately God’s kingdom here on the earth.  

JD: David James with Biblical truth about the city of Jerusalem and its importance to God and to the Jews.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For a number of years United States Presidents have promised to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem. Donald Trump did that exact same thing during his campaign. However after becoming President, Donald Trump has failed to keep his promise. He did say however that he was delaying the embassy moving and it would come later. This presidential declaration has caused a drop off of support for President Trump among the evangelicals. Christians by the way are the major supporters of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. These Christians are right because it is Biblically correct. In fact, God has chosen Jerusalem to dwell among his people forever, that’s Psalm 132:13 & 14.
