TRUMP’S RECOGNITION OF JERUSALEM IN 2017 AND JUDAH BEN SAMUEL’S PROPHECY
The proclamation of Jerusalem as the Capital City of Israel by President Donald Trump yesterday, the 6th of December, 2017, is a Jubilee gift to the city, to Israel and all lovers of the Jewish nation. It came on the 17th day in the Bible 9th month of Kislev, a time of birth and rebirth.
It signals the final stages of the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ based on an ancient prophecy by a Jewish-German Rabbi. Judah Ben Samuel was a German Rabbi who as far back as the 12th century accurately predicted the tides and times of Israel and Jerusalem. He was prolific as an author and pious as a consecrated follower of God.
Using “Biblical calculations” and astronomical observations, Judah Ben Samuel prophesied that the Ottoman Turks will conquer Jerusalem and rule the city for eight jubilees. According to the Rabbi, “Afterwards, Jerusalem will become no man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee, it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end-time.”
This prophetic Word was given in the 1217, 300 years before the first event was scheduled to happen. Given the fact that a jubilee is a 50 year duration, eight jubilees come to a period of 400 years. In amazing fulfilment of Judah Ben Samuel’s prophecy, the Mamluks who had reigned over Jerusalem since 1250 were conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1517. The Ottoman conquerors ruled Jerusalem for eight jubilees – 400 years, as Judah Ben Samuel predicted.
Furthermore, exactly 400 years later, in 1917, the Ottoman Turks were defeated by the British. “The League of Nations conferred the Mandate for the Holy Land and Jerusalem to the British. Thus from 1917, under International Law, Jerusalem was a no man’s land.” This again was as prophesied by Judah Ben Samuel. Only in 1967 was Jerusalem recaptured by the Jewish Forces during the Six-Day War. Jerusalem, the no man’s land, was now firmly the land of Israel.
Between 1917 and 1967 is a period of 50 years. This was another fulfilment of Judah’s prophecy that “Afterwards Jerusalem will become no man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth Jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic End-time.”
The ninth Jubilee fell between 1917 and 1967. The 10th Jubilee will begin in 1967 and will end in 2017. This is the season regarded as a fundamental or mid-point part of the Messianic end-time.
President Donald Trump, by his declaration of Jerusalem as the Eternal Capital of Israel, sounded a trumpet alerting the nations of the onset of a new season. America is not just a nation, but a conglomeration of nations. Consequently, the significance of this announcement for the entire world must not be downplayed even by those who are anti-Semitic and passionately opposed to Israel and the Church. It has taken courage and boldness to enforce the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 which urged the “Federal Government to relocate the American Embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city — and so importantly — is Israel’s capital.”
“According to President Trump, “My announcement today marks the beginning of a new approach to conflict between Israel and the Palestinians… Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.
It was 70 years ago that the United States under President Truman recognized the state of Israel. Ever since then, Israel has made its capital in the city of Jerusalem, the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times. Today, Jerusalem is the seat of the modern Israeli government. It is the home of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as well as the Israeli Supreme Court. It is the location of the official residence of the prime minister and the president. It is the headquarters of many government ministries.
For decades, visiting American presidents, secretaries of state, and military leaders have met their Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem, as I did on my trip to Israel earlier this year.”
Thus says the Lord, “If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it? Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:6-7)
