Stage Being Set For Jerusalem
God is preparing for His Son's return and the one statement made by one man (President Trump) has brought the world closer to the fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy. God is warning and Christ is coming. President Trump became president through the sovereignty of God and he has a very specific purpose one of them being Israel and Jerusalem.
Many countries do not agree with what Trump is about to do. Turkey made a statement that said "calling Jerusalem Israel capital will draw Muslim anger. "
They gone on to say "This can go as far as severing Turkey's ties with Israel. I am warning the United States not to take such a step which will deepen the problems in the region," Cavusoglu said. "We have to warn the United States that such a decision will be against the U.N. resolutions and international law and international agreements. "
President Trump announced to the world where America stands concerning Jerusalem and Israel. This statement did many things but the biggest was, it kicked people off the fence and into actions that show their true goals. Immediately the U.N. did not recognize what Trump announced and rejected his statement. One of them being a vote that took place where "Iran's parliament voted to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine". 
Trump also announced that the "Western Wall will remain part of Israel under the accord with the Palestinians."  This statement caused rage among the Palestinians and "Abu Rudeineh said. "This statement proves once again that this American administration is outside the peace process," 
I have stated this before but the consistent absurdity of making peace with those who hate you is, well, absurd. From the moment Israel was born as a nation, war has been at her door. The war has been waged on battle fields and behind closed doors but now it is all being laid out in the open. One of those wars occurring right now is Hamas called for an intifada against Israel.  Those who will war with Israel to destroy her and take Jerusalem are aligning quickly.
God's response to the threats of the raging nations; Here are some highlights from Psalm 2:
Psalm 2:1 ESV Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed,... 7 I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, "You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."
The earth and all on it belongs to God - the Son, Jesus Christ therefore the raging and plans of nations against the Lord are in vain.
God Always Warns!
Psalm 2:10 ESV Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
God Gives Solution!
Psalm 2:11 ESV Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
The nations can plot, threaten, and rage against Israel and Jerusalem but God says:
Psalm 89:18 ESV For our shield belongs to the Lord, our king to the Holy One of Israel.
God goes on to say, the Jewish people will never be annihilated. He is their God and they are His people through an everlasting covenant (v18-37)
Romans 9:27 ESV And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved, 28 for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay." 29 And as Isaiah predicted,"If the Lord of hosts had not left us offspring, we would have been like Sodom and become like Gomorrah."
Sodom and Gomorrah were annihilated and Israel will suffer under God's wrath a remnant will survive.
