Trump doesn’t know what doing the right thing is, that is a FACT. All he knows is how to let Satan lead his life and America’s destiny. Jews are NOT the Chosen Ones and they have NO Biblical right over the area and especially over Jerusalem. Things are aligning for disaster. But isn’t that just the goal? Let’s read what the Bible says about what Trump calls doing the ‘right thing’.
“Woes to Scribes and Pharisees (Luke 11:37-54)
1Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
13But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
15Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
16Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20Whoso, therefore, shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him, that sitteth thereon.
23Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. 28Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, 30And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Lament over Jerusalem (Luke 13:31-35)
37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed, is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
“US brings forward Jerusalem embassy opening to May | US news,” Source: theguardian.com
US officials said the move was to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel. The country declared independence on 14 May 1948, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned at the embassy in mid-May.
The US ambassador will move his office to a consulate already in the city, the officials said, followed by the gradual expansion of its premises. A new location may be chosen later on.
One official said plans for May were simple: “A sign will be put up in [the consulate] identifying the facility as the US embassy.”
The decision comes despite overwhelming global opposition. It is widely feared that moving the embassy from Tel Aviv will push back already moribund efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and could result in renewed violence.
Trump, however, told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington that moving the embassy to Jerusalem was the right thing to do.
The US president said he had decided to go against the advice of other countries “begging” him not to relocate the embassy. “I said we have to do it. It’s the right thing to do.”
The accelerated plan contradicts recent statements by Trump’s secretary of state and vice-president. Days after Trump declared that Washington had officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Rex Tillerson said it was unlikely to happen before 2020. During a visit to the Holy City, Mike Pence said recognition would come by the end of 2019.
Administration officials have suggested that a longer timeframe may have helped keep peace efforts alive while sparing the US the sensitive issue of choosing a site for the embassy.
While the decision to move the embassy in May was not officially announced, the Israeli minister of transport appeared to confirm the news by thanking Trump on Twitter.
The Associated Press cited four unnamed US officials on Friday saying that the Trump administration was also considering an offer from the major Republican donor Sheldon Adelson to pay for at least part of a new embassy.
Lawyers at the State Department were looking into the legality of accepting private donations, the report said. Adelson is a staunch supporter of Israel and his assistance would add further controversy to a plan that has been already been criticised as siding with Israel’s government.
Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate, also strongly backs Israel’s prime minister, financing a free newspaper friendly to Benjamin Netanyahu.
The current West Jerusalem consulate would have to be retrofitted with added security before it could house the ambassador, David Friedman, who worked as a lawyer for Trump and lobbied for the move.
Palestinians want East Jerusalem as a capital of a future independent state, but Israel captured it in 1967 and claims the entire area as its “eternal and undivided” capital.
Saeb Erekat, a senior Palestinian negotiator, decried the decision to move the embassy in May, an anniversary that Palestinians call the Nakba or catastrophe. Hundreds of thousands of Arabs fled as villages were emptied of their residents or destroyed in areas that later became Israel.
Trump’s move, Erekat said, “shows the determination of the US administration to violate international law, destroy the two-state solution, and provoke the feelings of the Palestinian people, as well as of all Arabs, Muslims and Christians around the globe”.
Jerusalem’s status has been a fundamental obstacle in past peace negotiations, and international consensus remains that sovereignty over the city is an issue to be agreed between the two sides.
Trump’s proclamation shocked the Palestinian leadership, which responded by rejecting the US as a peace broker, a position it had held for years. The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, told Trump: “May your house be destroyed.”
