Chuck Pierce has a passion for Israel, or as he calls it, God's nation. In fact, Chuck says when God visited him, He revealed Himself as "the God of Israel." Chuck's spirit longs for believers to once again align with God's heart for Israel.
I quoted Chuck throughout in my new book, Trump Aftershock, regarding his insight into the spiritual significance of Donald Trump's presidency. (Trump Aftershock will release this November. You can pre-order it onamazon.com and christianbook.com now.) Chuck received a prophetic word in 2008 that God was going to play a "trump card," but it wasn't until later that he understood God was referring to Donald Trump.
Chuck recently joined me in the podcast studio, where I asked him about a spiritually significant event in Washington, D.C., that took place in May 2017. Vice President Mike Pence held a gathering at the White House to celebrate Israel's Independence Day. He invited a wide array of pro-Israel leaders, both inside and outside of government. Chuck points out that this has never happened before in the history of the White House.
"When Vice President Pence stood up to speak, it was a dramatic shifting of a presence of God in that White House," Chuck tells me. "And [Pence] said, 'As long as this administration is in place, we will be Israel's best friend. We will align with Israel. We will recognize Israel.'"
Chuck says that momentous White House gathering opened up a gate the enemy has long tried to shut. After all, only a few months later, Trump made the decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Doing so sent a clear message that the U.S. supports Jerusalem as Israel's true capital. From a prophetic point of view, Chuck says that move had to happen this year.
"What makes that so important is that's a biblical decree," Chuck says. "And it opened up a portal over America for a divine return, a divine return for justice, a divine return for harvest—because everybody knows there will be a New Jerusalem that comes down—a divine return back to our covenant blessings in a new way."
Listen to my podcast interview with Chuck to learn how God is using Trump in this hour and why all believers should watch Israel closely this year.
