President Donald Trump made a historic move last week with the announcement that the U.S. would officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and prepare to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.
God and Donald Trump best-selling author Stephen E. Strang says Trump's action is yet another promise fulfilled to evangelical Christians and the Jewish community.
"Some say declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel is actually more important than moving the embassy, but it certainly must be a precursor to it," Strang said. "We must help our evangelical friends understand this, especially those who are only focused on the embassy and not thinking about the significance of Jerusalem. Going forward, it's important believers pray for the peace of Jerusalem as the implications of these decisions are realized."
In God and Donald Trump, Strang also writes that only a strong leader like Trump could make such a bold declaration.
"There are ministry leaders and prophetic voices who are convinced God brought Donald Trump, who had said for many years that he was not at all interested in running for public office, to this place for this time," Strang wrote. "It may well be that Trump was sent by God as a bull in a china shop to break up the globalist agenda and interrupt the left's campaign to remake America in their own image. A man with a milder, gentler, less aggressive personality could never hope to take on the forces within the political establishment and prosper, which explains why Donald J. Trump was the perfect choice for this hour."
With the recent announcement regarding Jerusalem, Trump continues to persist against global voices, standing with Israel and many of his evangelical supporters, Strang said.
In God and Donald Trump, Strang gives an inside look at the journey to the Trump White House through firsthand interviews and perspectives from those who were intimately involved. The book was recently ranked No. 25 on the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) Best-Sellers Top 50 list, as well as No. 24 on the ECPA Non-Fiction list, for Dec. 2017.
Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel. He later founded a Christian publishing house and media company while interviewing and writing about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.
