NEWS UPDATE on dividing Israel. Tomorrow, January 15, seventy UN nations will meet in Paris to promote dividing Israel into two states. That would take the Temple Mount and huge swaths of land away from Israel. It would violate Scriptures that establish the Promised Land as “an everlasting possession” of Israel (Gen. 17:8; Ps. 105:8-11). It would place those seventy nations under God’s judgment that “they have divided up My land” (Joel 3:2). This would far exceed the outrage the UN committed on December 23 when it declared Jewish housing in areas of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem to be illegal. US President Barack Obama refused to order a veto to that resolution.
Many fear that Obama will refuse to veto a resolution for dividing Israel if it goes to the UN while he is still in office. In fact the increasingly anti-Israel Obama himself may be behind this plan. Pro-Israel Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President on January 20. But it would be a huge task for him to reverse such a UN resolution. Let’s pray that God will stop this travesty now!
PRAY WITH US. Father, You are the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You told them, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” We thank You for blessing the nations through Israel, and through Your Jewish Son. His gospel came to the Jews first, and then to the Gentiles. We honor Your chosen nation. We honor Your Holy Land. We come against every effort to make a Holy Land division between Israel and her enemies. Though they continually surround her with death threats, frustrate all their efforts.
Preserve Your blessings on the US and every nation that stands for Israel. Confirm and empower Trump’s plans to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. For “it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come…So the name of the Lord will be declared in Zion and His praise in Jerusalem when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the Lord” (Ps. 102:13,21,22). Preserve Israel for Jesus’ return. Let Your remnant there multiply into a great multitude who will welcome Him. Let the fullness of the Gentiles turn to Him instead of to Allah until that Second Coming. Keep Your land intact for Him, so that from there He may rule to the ends of the earth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
