Will President Biden even come close to support the State and people of Israel as Donald Trump did?
His first executive actions certainly do not look good for America or Israel.
As of Wednesday, US Ambassador Friedman’s assignment has changed. He is no longer Ambassador to Israel, but his new title has become:
“U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.”
The Bible greatly warns the nations not to touch the people and the land which God Himself has given to the Jewish people.
“For he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye,” Zechariah 2:8 NKJV
Many of us believe that Donald Trump indeed won the Presidential election in the USA! But we all should humble ourselves now before The LORD seeing how He allowed the devil to so easily steal what God, in His Mercy, had intended to give to America and Israel and the whole world.
Donald Trump seemingly ‘lost’ by possible foreign interference and the political misuse of the later storming of the Capitol building, for which he received all the blame.
In Luke 7, the people entreated Jesus to come and heal the centurion’s servant, begging Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was very deserving: “for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.” (Luke 7.7 NKJV)
May God come to the aid of Donald Trump, as He once did for that man. May Trump be rewarded for his love for the Evangelicals and Israel and all the good he has done for his own nation.
May this American builder, Donald Trump, still be used to help the Jewish people and one day build the Temple like a modern day Cyrus! (2 Chronicles 36 NKJV)
In the following section you will find 100 achievements of Donald Trump that benefited Israel. See also the short video below that follows.
Seeing this list we can indeed question:
Will Joe Biden and his Administration ever come close to the kind of unbelievable support the Jewish State Israel has received in words and in action during the four years of President Donald Trump?
Let us keep looking up to The LORD and trusting Him for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven!
Our help comes from our Maker – the God of Israel –
