It’s official. The new U.S. embassy has just opened in Jerusalem, marking a major turning point in Jewish-Israeli history. The Jews are back in their land, have retaken their city, and now key world powers are beginning to submit to this biblical reality.
On the Gregorian calendar today marks the 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel, but on the Jewish calendar it’s the day immediately after Jerusalem Day, the 50th anniversary of the conquest of Jerusalem.
Israel’s enemies are not happy about Israel’s sudden string of diplomatic victories and Hamas and Iran are trying to stir up trouble. Tens of thousands of Palestinians are attempting to storm the Gaza border with Israel and current reports indicate over 50 rioters have been killed and nearly 1,200 wounded.
You can watch the opening ceremony for the U.S. embassy live here:
9:15 AM CST: Pastor John Hagee from Cornerstone Baptist Church in San Antonio, an evangelical Christian and pre-trib proponent, delivers the closing benediction:
Our most gracious Heavenly Father, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God who calls the stars by name, and measures space by the span of His hand, the God who is the King of the universe, we gather here today to thank you for the joy of living and seeing this glorious and historic day. We thank you for the State of Israel, the lone torch of freedom in the Middle East who lives and prospers because of Your everlasting love for the Jewish people. It was You oh LORD who gathered the exiles from the nations and brought them home again. It was You who made statehood possible. It was You who gave a miraculous victory in 1967 when Jerusalem was reopened to worshipers of all faiths. Jerusalem is the city of God. Jerusalem is the heartbeat of Israel. Jerusalem is the place where Abraham placed his son on the altar of the Temple Mount and became the father of many nations. Jerusalem is where Isaiah and Jeremiah penned principles of righteousness that became the moral foundations of western civilization. Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end. We thank you oh LORD for President Donald Trump’s courage in acknowledging to the world a truth established 3,000 years ago that Jerusalem is and always shall be the eternal capital of the Jewish people. And because of that courage of our President, we gather here today to consecrate the ground upon which the United States embassy will stand, reminding the dictators of the world that America and Israel are forever united. We thank you for our ambassador, David Friedman, and pray your anointing upon him as he opens the doors of the U.S. embassy to receive the nations of the world. Let the word go forth from Jerusalem today that Israel lives. Shout it from the housetops that Israel lives. Let every Islamic terrorist hear this message: ‘Israel lives.’ Let it be heard in the halls of the United Nations: ‘Israel lives.’ Let it echo down the halls of the presidential palace in Iran: ‘Israel lives.’ Let it be known to all men that Israel lives because He that keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. As King David prayed 3,000 years ago: ‘We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all its inhabitants. Let the Name of the LORD be glorified today, for the defender of Israel today, tomorrow, and forever is here.’ Can we all shout, ‘Hallelujah!’ Amen!
9:10 AM CST: Netanyahu quotes the Prophet Zechariah:
The Prophet Zechariah declared over 2,500 years ago: So said the LORD, ‘I will return to Zion and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem and Jerusalem shall be called the city of truth.’
9:05 AM CST: Prime Minister Netanyahu unknowingly speaks some very powerful, prophetic words, which are a testament to God’s sovereign hand and unwavering promises:
In Jerusalem Abram passed the greatest test of faith and the right to be the father of our nation. In Jerusalem King David established our capital here 3,000 years ago. In Jerusalem King Solomon built our Temple which stood for many centuries. In Jerusalem Jewish exiles from Babylon rebuilt the Temple, which stood for many more centuries. In Jerusalem the Maccabees rededicated that Temple and restored Jewish sovereignty in this land. And it was here in Jerusalem some 2,000 years later that the soldiers of Israel spoke three immortal words: ‘Har HaBayit BeYadeinu’—the Temple Mount is in our hands. Words that lifted the spirit of the entire nation. We are in Jerusalem and we are here to stay.
