Book Overview

 

During the exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land, God told the Israelites that the city in which He would place his name should be their center of worship or the economic capital.

But unto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shall come. (Deuteronomy 12:5)

Around 1000 BC, the God of Abraham selected Jerusalem to place His name there and David to rule over His people. David became a king of ancient Israel when God selected Jerusalem to place His name and made Jerusalem the center of worship (spiritual and economic capital). But I have chosen Jerusalem that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. (2 Chronicles 6:6) Therefore, God chose Jerusalem to put His name there and David to rule over His people (Israel).

The Jews know their history, and Jerusalem was proclaimed the capital. On May 14, 1948, Ben-Gurion formally proclaimed the formation of Israel. Jerusalem is the capital and the largest city in Israel. Tel Aviv is Israel’s economic and technology center. Jerusalem is the capital, but it has limited recognition. International bodies and many countries around the world do not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I believe it is time for the world and international bodies to recognize Jerusalem as the capital. I believe Donald Trump won the election to declare and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Babylonians captured Jerusalem in 587 BC and forced all the Jewish inhabitants into exile in Babylon. That period was known as the Babylonian Captivity. Isaiah had already given prophecy about Cyrus, so the Jewish community in Babylon saw him as their liberators and assisted Cyrus’s army in overthrowing the Babylonians.

In 538 BC, Cyrus allowed about forty thousand Jews to return to Jerusalem, ending the Babylonian captivity. Cyrus used the funds he had acquired in conquering Babylon to rebuild the sacred temple in Jerusalem, which was given in prophecy by Isaiah.

I have declared President Donald Trump the modern-day Cyrus. Just as King Cyrus set the Israelites free from the Babylonian captivity, Donald Trump is setting Jerusalem free from the slave of unrecognition.
