Although controversial, President Donald Trump recently announced America would recognise Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. Is there a prophecy of this in the Bible? Is it one of the signs that Jesus’ second coming is drawing near?
The Bible foretells the regathering of Israel into their promised land:
The regathering of Israel has already begun, and the present regathering is a fulfillment of prophecy in preparation for the end of the age. But the recent political pronouncement that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital is not a significant new element, since as the President said, it is merely the recognition of a 70-year old fact.
