On the heels of President Trump’s decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the U.S. embassy to the city, the Muslim world has erupted in protest and riots have broken out in various countries. Could this decision be what sets up the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:3?
On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.
And perhaps even Daniel 8:23:
In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise.
The Bible tells us that at the end of the age the spirit of lawlessness will engulf the world leading to the Gentile nations undergoing tumultuous rebellions and out-of-control wickedness. This leads to wars to steal Jerusalem from the Jews. In the midst of the uproar, a “master of intrigue,” the antichrist, arises and begins to accumulate power.

The Trump Administration continues to gear up for the unveiling of what has been coined “the ultimate deal.” U.S. officials have informed Mahmoud Abbas that after the initial outcry over the embassy move dies down, the peace agreement framework will be revealed – some time before the middle of 2018. In other words, shortly before, or right around, the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth.
