Chasing Armageddon: Brazil President-Elect Bolsonaro Will Move Embassy To Jerusalem

Chasing Armageddon: Brazil President-Elect Bolsonaro Will Move Embassy To Jerusalem November 2, 2018

Thrilling evangelicals who pray for Armageddon, Brazil’s president-elect Jair Bolsonaro promises to move the country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Haaretz reports:

Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro said late on Thursday that he intends to move the Brazilian embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Bolsonaro made the announcement via Twitter:

As previously stated during our campaign, we intend to transfer the Brazilian Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. Israel is a sovereign state and we shall duly respect that.

By moving the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem Bolsonaro is following in the footsteps of the Trump administration’s decision made last year to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Evangelicals and other conservative Christians cheer such decisions because they believe that moving embassies in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will usher in Armageddon, and set the stage for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and End Times.

Indeed, many Christians believe that moving embassies to Jerusalem, and thus recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, is a necessary condition for the return of Christ. Last year, at a Trump rally in Pensacola, Florida, conservative Christians cheered after Florida state Senator Doug Broxson suggested that Trump’s controversial decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would usher in Armageddon.

At the time the Republican lawmaker praised Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as a win for people of faith, declaring:

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem — where the King of Kings [applause] where our soon coming King is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel.

Bottom line: Brazil’s president-elect Jair Bolsonaro is promising to move the country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which thrills many conservative Christians because they believe that moving the embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem helps to set the stage for Armageddon, the end of the world, and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
