On Sunday, June 16, Israel celebrated and dedicated a new village on the Golan Heights in the honor of U.S. President Donald Trump. President Trump has demonstrated many times since his election that he is a true friend of the state of Israel. This was especially demonstrated with the official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the moving of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem on the 70th anniversary of Israel, May 14, 2018. Earlier this year, President Trump signed an official document in Washington that recognizes the formerly disputed area of the Golan Heights as being a sovereign part of the state of Israel. Now, the Israeli government is showing their gratitude to President Trump by establishing a new village in this historic part of ancient Israel.
According to the Bible, this part of the Promised Land called “Bashan” was given to the Jews by God. It was conquered by Israel and given to the tribe of Manasseh under the direction of Moses, as recorded in Deuteronomy 3:1-13. According to Jeremiah 50:19, after the defeat of Israel at the hands of the Babylonians almost 2,600 years ago, God promised that in the last days He would return His people to this part of the Promised Land.
The Golan Heights was given to the Syrians as a part of the French mandate after World War 1. The Syrians used this high ground as a military launching pad from 1949 to 1967 to make life miserable for the Jewish farmers living in the Galilee. Finally, the Syrians were defeated and driven out by Israel during the 6-day war in June, 1967. In 1981 Israel officially annexed this land as an official part of the state of Israel. However, all of the nations, including the U.S., failed to officially recognize Israel’s declaration of sovereignty and referred to this area as “disputed land.” Now, with these recent announcements by President Trump, the world is being force to decide if they will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the Golan as a sovereign part of the state of Israel.
According to the prophetic Scriptures, Israel and the U.S. are standing against world opinion on these matters. However, God is on Israel’s side. The nations are about to enter into the final confrontation with God. This conflict will lead to two major wars mentioned in the Bible – the Battle of Gog and Magog on the Golan Heights (Ezekiel 38-39) and the Battle of Armageddon in Jerusalem (Zechariah 12, 14).
God’s prophetic clock in heaven is ticking and it is getting very late! Get ready for the shout that will take us out!
