The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says Jerusalem has definitely become the "burdensome stone" prophesized in the Old Testament.
Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, warned U.N. members earlier this week that President Trump "will be watching" to see who votes to condemn the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Trump had threatened to cut off financial aid to any country that supported the U.N. resolution. Most countries didn't heed the warning as the General Assembly approved the anti-U.S. resolution 128-to-9 with 35 abstentions on Thursday.
Major U.S. aid recipients that ignored Trump's threat and supported the resolution included Egypt, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Joining the U.S. is opposing the resolution were Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Marshall Islands, and Togo.
The U.N. move followed a call by Muslim leaders for the world body to recognize East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, points out that Jerusalem doesn't appear anywhere in the Quran.
