Trump and the Wisdom of Solomon

Capital of Palestine

President Trump was wise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, precisely as was Solomon in his famous “cut the baby in half” decision. Trump shocked the world in his first press conference with PM Netanyahu in DC a year ago on February 15. He broke with years of precedent by allowing for “a two state or a one state solution, whatever the two parties agree on.” He is using the same wisdom regarding Jerusalem. The US will not impose the decision, but leaves it up to the negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The very fact that the Palestinians are willing to cut the city/baby in half, betrays their true motive of destroying the holy city and its history.

Ironically, the “two state” world leaders accused Trump of “pre-determining” the outcome. Yet, a recent position taken by the British government, does exactly that in reverse. By insisting that Israel share its capital with the capital of (an as yet non-existent)  “State of Palestine,” it is the British who demand a predetermined outcome.

Israel Told It Will Have to “Share” Jerusalem On Monday, British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson reiterated “the UK’s commitment to supporting the Palestinian people and the two-state solution… “Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states,” said Britain’s top diplomat.

What those insisting on such a compromise outcome fail to take into account is that the vast majority of Israelis reject the notion of ever again dividing Jerusalem, and that most Palestinians deny that the Jewish people have any history in, and therefore claim to, the city. Not to mention that Jerusalem was divided between 1948-1967, and the situation was a nightmare for its residents.

We should pray for President Trump that he will continue to find the wisdom of Yehovah God in his policy for Israel and Jerusalem.

“For behold, in those days and at that time, 
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and “pray for rain in the time of latter rain.”
