Brazil flagThe leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry is praising the newly elected president of Brazil for following the United States’ lead and promising to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Elections have consequences – even in Brazil – and Brazil's new president plans to take the country away from left-wing socialism and is unabashedly embracing a pro-Israel Christian worldview.

As the new leader of South America’s largest nation, Jair Bolsonaro declared his allegiance to God – first and foremost.

"God above everything,” Bolsonara proclaimed. “There is no such thing as this secular state. The state is Christian, and the minority will have to change – if they can."

Bolsonaro also made a campaign promise three months ago that – if elected – he will transfer his country's embassy to Jerusalem.

Bolsonaro further vowed at the time to close the Palestinian Liberation Organization's office in his country's capital.

Olive Tree Ministries Founder Jan Markell – who also hosts Understanding the Times on American Family Radio (AFR) –lauded Bolsonaro’s faith and courage.

"This man, Bolsonaro, is being called the Donald Trump of South America,” Markell pointed out. “It's extremely encouraging."

Markell also pointed out that – just as with Trump in the United States – Christians in Brazil put Bolsonaro in power.

"There is always a remnant of true believers, and I think that's who we see starting to turn out and starting to vote for more biblical values – but at the same time, voting for more pro-Israel causes,” the Christian leader explained. “And so, I'm not surprised to see this."

Markell believes that America is going to see other nations move their embassies to Jerusalem, as well.

"I think all we need is a little momentum, and we're going to see one after another,” she predicted. “Now, will it be a flood? No! But I think that some nations that have true believers in their population are going to be putting pressure on their governments to do this."

However, Markell also stressed that it takes the right leader – and Bolsonaro is the right leader for Brazil.
