US Embassy Moves to Jerusalem - Israel's Eternal Capital
May 14, 2018, is an historic date for an historic event – The USA Embassy was moved to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel. This occurred 70 years to the date from Israel’s rebirth as a nation, fulfilling prophecy and regathering the people to the Land. Israel has a 3,000-year old history. King David made Jerusalem the capital of Ancient Israel.
“President Trump's decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem affirms a great and simple truth. Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3,000 years. It has been the capital of our state for the last 70 years. It will remain our capital for all time,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"President Trump is making history," said the Prime Minister during his address at the festive event. He said, “By recognizing history, you [Trump] have made history. We are deeply grateful and our people will be eternally grateful for his bold decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to move the embassy there. Thank you, President Trump, for your bold decision; thank you for making the alliance between Israel and the United States stronger than ever.”
Netanyahu quoted Zechariah 8:3, “Thus says the Lord, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the Lord of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.’” Netanyahu claimed this to be true of Jerusalem.
