Jerusalem has been destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. The city rests on one of the most hotly contested sites in the history of the world.
Many, including me, believe the original Garden of Eden was centered in Jerusalem. If this is true, the city has been undergoing spiritual warfare for 6000 years, ever since Adam and Eve walked in the Garden and Satan deceived them.
So, there’s no wonder why President Trump is undergoing such hatred by the media and his enemies. Trump was the first president to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and plans on moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.
Like most of us, Trump is a flawed person, but God knew his frailties when He chose him to be president of America. I believe Trump’s strength is his stubborn determination to plow forward with his plans, including those for Jerusalem and Israel.
My prayer today:
Lord, raise up people who are willing to stand in the gap before You for President Trump and for Jerusalem during this time period. (Based on Ezekiel 22:30)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.

How do you come to the conclusion that the Garden of Eden was near Jerusalem when in Genesis as it seems to me, indicates Mesopotamia, meaning “land between the rivers,” Tigris and Euphrates?
Actually, there were four rivers mentioned: Pishon, Havilah, Tigris, and Euphrates. Only two of the names are still used today. But who knows whether the Great Flood changed the courses of both rivers.
My guess is based on Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 51:3 –
“Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion [another name for Jerusalem]; He will comfort all her waste places. And her wilderness He will make like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and sound of a melody.” (Isaiah 51:3)
Plus, it’s a gut feeling because all of the Bible revolves around one nation and one main city.
It’s my guess.
Thank you for your insights and your prayers! Blessings and hope!
Thanks. God bless you.
