Joe Biden’s next blunder – Jerusalem

Israeli flag over Jerusalem

Arutz Sheva: Robert Gates, defense secretary under Obama, put it like this: “Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

Say this about that, he is consistent, and to remain consistently wrong, Biden seems determined to reopen the US special consulate in Jerusalem.

Trump had the consulate shut down, largely because he was clear-eyed and knew that it was designated to do business with the PA—terrorists.

That has never been a bother to Biden and fellow Democrat lawmakers, who view the term terrorist differently from Monday to Thursday.

Accordingly, the Taliban are now people we trust, and the Palestinian Authority are Israel’s partners in peace…among other such fantasies.

Re-opening the consulate amounts to a reward for terrorism…terrorism aimed specifically against Jews through the Palestinian Authority’s Martyrs Fund.

“Pay to Slay,” in other words, or, “Kill Jews, Get Rich.” There is nothing like this anywhere else in the civilized world. Read More …

Opinion: Zechariah 12:2 prophesies on Jerusalem’s holy hill, Zion, a stumbling stone for the nations:

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense,
And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 

Isaiah 8:14 prophesies that Jesus will be a sanctuary, a rock of offense, and a stone of stumbling for the inhabitants of Jerusalem who relied on their good works for salvation:

He will be as a sanctuary,
But a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense
To both the houses of Israel,
As a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 28:16 prophesies that Jesus Christ is the sure foundation, the precious cornerstone whom the people should consider before relying in their traditions of works:

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;
Whoever believes will not act hastily.”

In Romans 9:33 Paul wants to make sure we don’t miss that Jesus is the rock of offense, a stone of stumbling to all of Israel and the only means for salvation:

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense,
And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”

It is Jerusalem that Joe Biden and so many world leaders stumble over. It is Jerusalem that will continue to be trampled over by non-believers (Gentiles) until a crucial event happens that is prophesied in Luke 21:24

And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

When the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled, or the last Gentile is saved, the church is removed from the earth (1 Thess. 4:16-17), and the final 7 years of tribulation will commence.
