Joel 3:2 I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land..
Israel…and they have divided up My land.
November 29, 2016: The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People was observed by the United Nations each year. This is the anniversary of the General Assembly’s 1947 adoption of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine.
December 1, 2016: The United Nations (UN) has passed six resolutions regarding Israel, the city of Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, and Palestine. Only six countries voted against the passage of these resolutions. They include: Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, the United States, and Israel. Six countries (Australia, Cameroon, Honduras, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, and Vanuatu) abstained in voting. And the rest of the world voted for the passage of the resolutions.
The focus of the post is on three of the resolutions regarding Israel, Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.
Israel: The UN indicated Israel “immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures” and “a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem should take into account the legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.” In other words, stop building settlements in the west bank area.
Jerusalem: The UN stated actions taken by Israel, “the occupying Power,” to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem “were illegal and therefore null and void and had no validity whatsoever”. Translation, the Jewish nation has no legal authority in their capital.
Golan Heights: The UN referred to the region as “Syrian Golan”. The UN believes the Golan Heights region should be handed over to Syria and the Assad regime. Language of the resolution stated, “Israel withdraw from all the occupied territory to the line of June 4, 1967 and called on all parties concerned to exert the necessary efforts to ensure the resumption of the peace process.”
Because a majority of the nations voted for these resolutions, this is “a reflection of the longstanding international consensus in favor of achieving a just, lasting and peaceful solution to the question of Palestine,” and “a clear reaffirmation of the international community’s consensus on the two-State solution.”
President Mahmoud President Abbas of Palestine has made one item very clear. He wants the UN to make it happen.
Zechariah 2:8-9 For thus says the LORD of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye. For behold, I will wave My hand over them so that they will be plunder for their slaves. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me.”
Israel is the apple of His eye. The apple is also known as the pupil of the eye.
The pupil is a vulnerable and important part of the body. Israel is more valuable to God than any other nation. The country is His favorite nation. God’s people are priceless.
Don’t mess with Israel…consequences. God will slap you around and it is going to hurt.
