    The Omegga Letter floated an interesting theory. I, presumably like most of you, expected a Clinton victory due to the prophetic march of globalization. But the writer argued that President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capitol if Israel may finally lead to end of the "trampleing of the gentiles". Not that it will be ethnically cleansed but it will be fully in Jewish hands.
    Now I am suffering a lot of pain right now and the Percocet is mitigating it. That's the blessing, the temporary dulling of my critical thinking skills is the other side of the coin though, so forgive me if my next thought isn't quite cogent or if I am missing something but...
    Doesn't the restoration of Jerusalem to Israel basically fufill the time of the gentiles? If so, The Donald's victory should put us that much closer to the Rapture no?

    And here is an excerpt of that awesome article mustard refered too: Trump has made it clear that he would finally recognize Jerusalem as the sole, undivided capital of Israel, something no president has done since they recaptured the eastern half of it in 1967. Prophetically speaking, this is significant because Jesus said….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. (Luke 21:24)

    I am becoming less and less convinced that this means there will be a complete absence of Gentiles in Jerusalem milling about, as this has never been the case even when they were their own kingdom. But were President Trump, the leader of the world’s greatest nation, to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel after 49 years of Israeli ownership, this could signal the beginning of the end of Gentile dominion as the world begins to enter into Daniel’s 70th Week. I believe that this is the only reason why it hasn’t happened yet.

    *Put in another way, if recognizing Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel were to work in Satan’s favor, it would have already happened 49 years ago. But it doesn’t and this is why Satan has been working so hard to prevent this now through eight different US administrations.

    Prognosis: This could also mark the time when Christians let their guard down in the United States. This supports the Biblically-based understanding that the church becomes largely lethargic and lukewarm. Hypothetically speaking, if Trump surrounds himself with as much Christian leadership (advisors and cabinet members) as has we have been led to believe, a Rapture would decimate much of our Executive Branch forcing a national realignment, in conjunction with an economic downturn.

    Fascinating!! I had always assumed a Trump presidency would slow the prophetic clock. I suppose that's possible, but this thread also shows how God's plans can continue undeterred. Thanks for offering up this perspective.

    Default Anyone else...

    Is there anyone else that would have a better understanding or maybe some of their own ideas and opinions on the situation? I find this topic to be interesting and very exciting...

    None of us have a perfect grasp on this subject,
    but each day, we seek to understand it better.

    No, I think you are right.

    That is my belief, as well. Psalm 83 (title of this thread)
    is connected to Isaiah 17, and that may well happen before
    the Rapture. The fact is, though, we won't know for certain,
    until after it happens.
