Arutz Sheva: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that if elected president, he would recognize Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of Israel, ending a long-standing US policy which has kept the American embassy in Tel Aviv.
The two met for over an hour in Trump’s private residence in Trump Tower in Manhattan on Sunday.
Among the topics of discussion were the Iran nuclear deal and the regional turmoil caused by the rise of the ISIS terror organization.”
Opinion: Great idea that would bring blessings to our nation, but there has been a long line of presidents from both parties who had promised they would move the embassy, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
There is also no shortage of presidential hopefuls who said the same: Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz, but Donald Trump added that if elected this November, he would recognize the entire city of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.
With Trump the idea of a two-state solution within Israel would end, and with it, the ridiculous notion that Edomites would ever make peace with Jacob.
Until technological advances, like fracking, made the US energy independent, the need for Arab oil outweighed any move of the US embassy. Mr. Trump recognizes that is no longer the case.
There are two wars prophesied for the last days before the return of Jesus Christ. A US embassy in Jerusalem just might start one of them.

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “Health Care: For decades, liberal Democrats have been advocating a single-payer health care system where government pays all the bills. The public has never supported this idea, but it looks like the country is headed there anyway, slowly but surely.
The latest data from the Census Bureau show that just since President Obama took office, the number of Americans getting health care through a government program — Medicare, Medicaid, the VA, etc. — shot up by 32 million (an increase of more than 32%).
In contrast, the number of people getting coverage from private insurers has gone up 11.6 million (a gain of less than 6%).”
Opinion: Our post from October 28, 2013: “Once the gov.com website is long forgotten, and US citizens find themselves with either terrible healthcare or none at all, single-payer or Medicare for all will sound like a great solution. Death panels and all.”
We are almost there. Obamacare was designed to fail. Senator Obama is on record as being for single payer and said so in this 2008 video we may not get there immediately:
Washington Examiner: “President Obama’s pick to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court has rock-solid support from all major Democratic party figures and liberal leaders, save one: presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
She has not opposed Judge Merrick Garland, but nor has she promised to re-submit his nomination should she win the fall election. She has strongly hinted, in fact, that she would prefer to pick someone else.
“When I am president, I will take stock of where we are and move from there,” she said during an April Democratic primary debate when asked if she would re-submit his nomination.”
Opinion: My first pro-Trump post was about the Supreme Court. It is important to keep in mind that Antonin Scalia is gone, the Court is split 4/4, and filling that vacancy will likely be Hillary Clinton’s first major action as president.
If the Senate goes Democrat, we can expect Hillary to make a hard-left choice, whereas if the Republican majority holds, Obama’s pick of Merrick Garland who is considered a moderate, would be a more likely choice.
While there is no guarantee that Mr. Trump will pick from the list of conservative judges that he named earlier this year, like every contentious issue in this election, with Trump – we have a chance, with Hillary – there is none.
BIN: “Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi spontaneously made an appeal, in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 20, directly to Israeli leaders and citizens to make peace with Palestinians.
“We have a true opportunity, a real opportunity to write a bright page in the history of our region to move towards peace,” el-Sisi said before reading his prepared written statement.
El-Sisi referred to Egypt’s peace treaty signed with Israel in 1979 as an exemplary model to follow.”
Opinion: “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering…”
It never ceases to amaze me how much prophecy Daniel can put in one sentence: he, is Antichrist. Confirm a covenant indicates a peace treaty between Israel and her neighbors already in existence, e.g., Oslo was/is a failed 7 year peace treaty.
Many, indicates Israel and her neighbors. One week (Hebrew shabua) is 7 years. Middle of the week 42 months (3.5 years) Antichrist will end animal sacrifice, meaning, it had to have begun when the third temple was agreed to.
There can be no peace in the Middle East until a powerful ruler convinces both Jews and Muslims, giving credence to our theory that Antichrist will be an Edomite (part Jew/part Gentile).
“.. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
The abomination of desolation is a dual prophecy. Antiochus Epiphanes slaughtered a pig in the second temple (168 BC) creating the miraculous cleansing that led to the feast of Hanukkah.
In this future abomination, Antichrist will stand in the third temple and declare himself god. The Jews will reject him (as they rejected Mohammed, leading to 1300 years of hatred) leading to the great tribulation spoken about in Matthew 24:21-22.
God does not leave His people unprotected. Jesus warned the Jews of Judea: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation, ‘spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Matthew 24:15-16.
This part is mind-blowing. The mountains where the Jews will be protected during the great tribulation (last 3.5 years) are in Petra or Mt. Seir, the ancient stronghold of the eternal enemy of the Jew, Esau, who is Edom (Genesis 36:11).
When Jesus went to the cross He forgave us all our sins by nailing them to His cross and dying for them. As soon as you became a believer every sin of your life was washed away in His precious blood.
Confessing our sins will restore our submission to God, by admitting and agreeing with Him that what we did was sinful. 1 John 1:9 says if we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Our pastor (Dan) teaches us how to repent well, “Repent quickly and repent often.”

The Telegraph: “Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film.
An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception.
Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in other animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.”
Opinion: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
