What Trump did NOT Do in Israel

Here is an excellent summary of what President Trump did not do in Israel – from Joel Rosenberg

  • Did not unveil an American-imposed peace plan and pressure Israel to accept it
  • Did not even use the words “two state solution” during his entire visit
  • Did not criticize Israeli settlements, or mention them publicly at all
  • Did not criticize Israeli policies of any kind
  • Did not surprise the Israelis with major announcements of any kind, much less any policies that weren’t carefully discussed in advance
  • Did not go off message, either in his public remarks or on Twitter

Another big moment came when the President met in Bethlehem with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas: “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” Mr. Trump said during his public remarks, at Mr. Abbas’ side. “We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice.”

As the Times of Israel noted, this was a “reference to the salaries paid by the [Palestinian Authority] to jailed Palestinian terrorists and to the families of Palestinian prisoners killed while committing terror attacks.” Joel Rosenberg

We must pray for President Trump. Here is a great Psalm of David, praying for deliverance from his enemies. It is amazingly appropriate for our President.

Deliver me, O Yehovah, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who plan evil things in their hearts;
They continually gather together for war.
They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
The poison of asps is under their lips.Selah
Keep me, O Yehovah, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set traps for me. Selah
I said to the LORD: “You are my God;
Hear the voice of my supplications, O Yehovah.
O Yehovah the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant, O Yehovah, the desires of the wicked;
Do not further his wicked scheme,
Lest they be exalted. Selah
“As for the head of those who surround me,
Let the evil of their lips cover them;
10 Let burning coals fall upon them;
Let them be cast into the fire,
Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11 Let not a slanderer be established in the earth;
Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
12 I know that Yehovah will maintain
The cause of the afflicted,
And justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
The upright shall dwell in Your presence. Psalm 140

History Made in Next 7 Days.

US Amb to Israel

New US ambassador David Friedman arrives in Israel, prays for Trump

It would be hard to overstate the importance of the next seven days. President Trump’s first overseas trip will see him Saturday and Sunday in Saudi Arabia with leaders of 50 Muslim nations pressuring him for their agenda. He then visits Israel on Monday and Tuesday where he will pray at the Western Wall, visit Yad VaShem, the Holocaust Memorial, and meet with PM Netanyahu. He will also be with PA President Abbas in Bethlehem. From there he goes to Rome to meet the Pope and on to EU HQ in Belgium for a NATO meeting. He ends the trip in Sicily for economic talks with the G7.

Billed as a visit to the seats of the “world’s three great religions,” we have serious prayer concerns. We hope he will announce finally moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital. However, there are ominous signs that he may instead resurrect the failed two-state peace plan. Pray that he will hear from Yehovah God in Heaven and show the courage to stand with Israel against all odds, regardless of threats.

White House reports suggest he may state that the terrorists are “perverting Islam’s peaceful religion.” There is great opportunity for him to be deceived here. We must pray for the Holy Spirit of truth to speak directly to him.

Today as I write this, President Trump has a White House meeting with Turkey President Erdogan, who I am sure will give our President an earful of anti-Israel propaganda. Yet, the everlasting eternal God of Israel will triumph!

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from Yehovah,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Yehovah is your keeper;
Yehovah is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
Yehovah shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
Yehovah shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121

We pray for mercy to “He Who keeps Israel!”
