What VP Mike Pence Just Did is Being Called Prophetic


This is a brand of faith-based leadership that America hasn’t seen in a very long time.

When Vice President Mike Pence visited Israel earlier this week, he did and said a lot of things that excited his Israeli hosts.

But none were more moving than Pence’s brief visit to the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism, and the last remnant of the Second Temple where Jesus taught and scolded hypocrites making cynical use of “his Father’s house.”

First, Pence cited the Bible repeatedly during his address before Israel’s Knesset.

“It was here, in Jerusalem, on Mount Moriah, that Abraham offered his son, Isaac, and was credited with righteousness for his faith in God,” said the vice president.

But, according to rabbis, it was the act of actually going and praying at the Western Wall that really solidified Pence’s position, and that of the new American administration, with heavy prophetic undertones.

The Prophet Jeremiah writes of Jerusalem becoming a meeting point for all the nations of the world, a place where they go in accordance to God’s Word and to be closer to Him.

Rabbi Tuly Weisz, publisher of Breaking Israel News, quoted the commentator Radak who held that Jeremiah uses this description of Jerusalem because it is in fact “desired by all the nations.”

“Hashem‘s holy presence is so palpable there, that everyone senses its holiness and wants it,” said Rabbi Weisz. “One needs to look no further than the morning newspapers or the nightly news to appreciate the accuracy of the Radak’s words. Despite its small size, Israel is a ‘desired land’ sought after by “all the nations.”
