Today, as President Donald Trump spoke to the delegation in Jerusalem at the official opening of the US Embassy, our crowd here in Washington DC tuned in as well. What pure joy to be among staunch Israel-supporting Christians as the celebration took place! The room erupted many times in applause and celebratory cheers as we watched history being made.
If you missed President Trump’s congratulatory remarks and the unveiling of the official embassy seal, here is the 4 1/2-minute clip:
Later, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a rousing speech, thanking President Trump for following through on his promise to open the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
“What a glorious day! Remember this moment! This is history. President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history!”
~Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel
Watch his exuberant remarks here:
Indeed, it was a glorious day! Spending it with those who love Israel was a true blessing. Here in Washington DC we heard from other dignitaries and Christian leaders such as Yaron Gamburg (Minister of Public Diplomacy, Israeli Embassy in Washington), Dr Jurgen Buhler (President, ICEJ), Dr Jerry Johnson (President and CEO, National Religious Broadcasters), Pastor Saleem Shalash (Christian Arab Pastor at Jesus the King Church in Nazareth Israel) and many others. How encouraging to know that Christians are leading a worldwide movement to share the truth about Israel, and to exhort others to speak out and act boldly on behalf of God’s chosen land and God’s chosen people.
In days ahead I’ll share more about the content of this first-rate gathering, beginning with America’s “Cyrus Moments” tomorrow. See you then!
