‘Jerusalem Is the Heartbeat of Israel’: US Dedicates Jerusalem Embassy in Historic Ceremony

Published

It’s a historic day for Israel and the United States. President Trump fulfilled his promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday.

The move recognizes Jerusalem as the true capital of the Jewish state.

It’s happening 70 years to the day that Israel proclaimed its independence, fighting to reestablish a homeland for the Jewish people.

CBN News‘ Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell was on location at the new embassy in Jerusalem, and our CBN News Faith Nation team provided analysis about this important event below.

Pastor John Hagee prayed to “Our most gracious heavenly Father, God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, God who calls the stars by name” to dedicate the new embassy.

“We thank you for the state of Israel, the lone torch of freedom in the Middle East, who lives and prospers because of your everlasting love for the Jewish people,” Hagee prayed.

“Jerusalem is the city of God, Jerusalem is the heartbeat of Israel, Jerusalem is where Abraham placed his son on the altar,” he continued. “Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end.”

“Let the word go forth today that Israel lives,” Hagee said, “because he that keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.”
