Jerusalem and the Palestinians in 2018; A Year in Review

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: In this last year Jerusalem becoming the capital; really it was 17 but just a couple of days before Jerusalem becoming the political capital of Jewish State of Israel.

DD: Well of course its always been the political capital but in reality it just hasn’t been recognized as such by pretty much anybody else on Earth. When you have the largest power on Earth the United States announcing the move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem it’s going to open a floodgate. That’s what its done Jimmy and we’re going to have more embassies move in 2019. The Israeli’s are very happy with that.

It is Israel’s capital it has been since 1948 really since King David and finally the world is starting to recognize that fact.

JD: Hamas at the Gaza Strip it’s been very active almost all year long. We’ve talked about it on almost every report you have given us. What do you see happening now and in the future?

DD: Well yes Jimmy. Yesterday again there was rioting along the border. This has been going on since March. Hamas leadership this week said it will continue until the Zionists enemy is destroyed. So Hamas once again reaffirming that it wants to see Israel completely wiped out as a state and replaced by a Palestinian Islamic fundamentalist state. It’s not going to happen. Jerusalem will be the capital of the world as you said the Lord is coming back and will rule from there. But apparently at least this part of the Palestinians are going to continue to fight for Israel’s destruction.

JD: David Dolan with details on Jerusalem and the Palestinians during 2018; a year in review.

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

In 2018 Jerusalem was accepted as the political capital of the Jewish State of Israel by the United States and many other nations of the world. By the way God chose it as his capital in Psalm 132:13 & 14. President Trump fulfilled his promise to move the United States embassy into Jerusalem which caused great controversy as foretold in Zechariah 12:2. However, it was done.

In 2018 Hamas intensified its attack on the Jewish state because the Palestinians want Jerusalem as the capital of their state Palestine. Israeli’s say no way. The Bible seems to confirm that statement of the Jewish state, that’s Obadiah verses 15-18. These two issues will heat up as we look into 2019 according to the prophetic passages of scripture.
