Obama To Make Jerusalem A Palestinian State?

By Paul McGuire

Prophecy continues to move faster and faster right before our very eyes. Will the Obama Administration give control of the City of David to the Palestinians? It is all part of a global chess game that involves the EU, Pakistan, Russia, America, China, the Palestinians, Iran, Israel, nuclear war and oil. Let us not forget that the Clinton and Bush Administrations were pushing a two-state solution. But, Obama has taken it one step further and that is to give the Palestinians control of Jerusalem.

According to Aaron Klein writing for WorldNetDaily, President Obama has spoken to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about the creation of a Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital. This is a radical departure from the talks of dividing Jerusalem with the Palestinians. This would be place the City of David under the control of the Palestinians and not the Jews.

According to the Old Testament this is a very dangerous position for any nation, to adopt and especially the United States which has been Israel’s only friend. According to the Abrahamic Covenant that God made with Abraham and his physical descendants, the land of Israel and Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. In addition, God promises to bless those nations and individuals who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel.

During the 1967 Six Day War, Israel recaptured eastern Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount Judaism's holiest site. After taking control of the Temple Mount, Israel than gave it back to the Palestinians. The Palestinians have continued to expand their control of eastern Jerusalem as their future capital. Today, over 244,000 Arabs live in Jerusalem, in the eastern neighborhoods. The area has a total population of 724,000, the majority Jewish.

It is time to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Like him or not, we are commanded by God to pray for our leaders and that includes President Obama and his Administration. It would be wise for Christians to understand that President Obama has been placed into office by very powerful forces and these forces expect him to implement their policies. What we are dealing with here transcends the office of the President. We are dealing with what the Apostle Paul referred to as the kosmokratos or invisible world rulers. As Bible Prophecy unfolds we can expect to see activity from the the "Prince of Persia" mentioned in the Book of Daniel. This was the spiritual power that rule over Iran and parts of the Middle East. God has placed Michael, the archangel to watch over Israel. We have entered the countdown to the Return of our Lord. Are You Ready?
