Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you…

February 15, 2017: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with President Donald Trump.

President Trump has set a different tone in comparison to previous United States presidents. A two state solution is not a necessary condition for peace.

“I like the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. I thought for a while that two states looked like the easier of the two. If Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I like the one they like the best.” –President Trump.

Trump also called for a change in attitude of the Palestinians.

“(Palestinians) have to get rid of some of that hate that they are taught at a very young age. They must also acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.” –President Trump.

Trump indicated he is committed to peace in the Middle East.

“Our administration is committed to working with Israel and our common allies in the region toward greater security and stability. That includes working on a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. We’ll be working on it very, very diligently. Very important to me also.” –President Trump.

A sticking point in peace talks has been the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated he was willing to consider the issue.

“Trump is willing to upgrade our ties in every field. So if there’s a request from the president to examine this issue of construction in the settlement then I think our national interest to reach an understanding. It is worth making an effort… we agreed to continue to discuss this issue to try to reach understandings that fit our desire for reaching peace and security.” –Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Another key issue discussed was the potential move of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“As far as the embassy moving to Jerusalem, I’d love to see that happen. And we are looking at it very, very strongly. We’re looking at it with a great care, a great care, believe me. And we’ll see what happens.” –President Trump.

“Concerning the embassy, I said I support moving it to Jerusalem. He’s examining the issue thoroughly but he heard our unequivocal opinion on the matter. He wants time to look into the issue.” –Prime Minister Netanyahu.

A tweet by Prime Minister Netanyahu captured the day.

“A warm and excellent meeting with President Donald Trump – a successful day for the State of Israel!”

Trend Update: Secretary Kerry’s Vision for Middle East Peace, Two State Solution, December 2016

Zechariah 12:9 And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Zechariah 12:3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

December 28, 2016: As of the posting of this article, the 2,500 year old prophetic last sentence of Zechariah 12:3 (And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it) is a true statement. All the governments of the world, including the current government of the United States, are against Israel.

The United Nations recently voted against the Israeli construction of neighborhoods and settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. The vote was 14-0. The following countries voted against Israel: New Zealand, Senegal, Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Venezuela, Malaysia, and Spain.

The United States could have blocked the resolution by voting no. Instead, the United States Ambassador abstained in voting. This allowed for passage of the resolution. This is the first time since Israel became a nation in 1948 the United States did not support Israel.

In response Israel has recalled ambassadors to Senegal and New Zealand. Israel has also limited a working relationship with the other countries except Venezuela and Malaysia.

Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claim President Obama was behind the drafting of the UN resolution against Israel. Israel states Obama was the force behind “ganging up” on Israel at the UN.

A spokesman for Israel David Keyes made the following claim, “We have rather iron clad information from sources in both the Arab world and internationally that this was a deliberate push by the United States and in fact they helped create the resolution in the first place.”

Israel Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer further stated, “We will present this evidence to the new administration through the appropriate channels. If they want to share it with the American people, they are welcome to do it.”

John F. Kerry has been the Secretary of State since February 2013. Multiple attempts to secure peace in the Middle East have been a failure during his tenure. Now with roughly three weeks left in the Obama Presidency, Secretary Kerry has a vision for peace.

Secretary John Kerry believes “the two state Israel/Palestine peace solution is in jeopardy.”

Secretary Kerry stated the framework for peace lies in the Oslo Accords. The Oslo Accords were based on the Camp David Accords in 1978 under the Jimmy Carter Administration. The Oslo Accords were signed in 1993 and 1995 during the Bill Clinton Administration.

Kerry was highly critical and scolding of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. He stated the Israeli construction of settlements in “occupied territories” is a threat to peace. The Secretary denied United States involvement in the drafting of the recent UN resolution against Israel.

Secretary Kerry finished his remarks with a six principle plan and framework for Middle East Peace and a two state solution for Israel and a future Palestine.

“No American administration has done more for Israel’s security than Barack Obama’s,’’ John Kerry.

The nations of the world are desperate to force the issue with Israel and the Palestinians. The United Nations knows time is short before the swearing in of Donald Trump as President of the United States on January 20, 2017.

Five days before President Trump would take control…on January 15, 2017 France is scheduled to hold a Middle East peace conference in Paris. Representatives from seventy (70) countries are scheduled to attend.

If seventy nations rings a bell, see Genesis 10-11 and the original table of nations. This is the original UN emerging from the Tower of Babel, seventy countries.

“January 15 is the date that has been fixed and 70 countries are invited. We are not going to give up now.” – Jean-Marc Ayrault, French spokesman

Israel and Palestine representatives will meet separately after the meeting. Israel prefers direct negotiations with Palestine.

President Elect Donald Trump will have none of this. Trump has tweeted the following statements about the United Nations and encouragement to Israel.

As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/812390964740427776

The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/813500123053490176

We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but…….not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/814114980983427073

Israel is becoming more and more isolated on the international stage.

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the Lord draws near on all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you. Your dealings will return on your own head.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Trend Update: Obama Delays US Embassy Move to Jerusalem, December 2016

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 2, 2016 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. 

The verses from Zechariah 12 have global implications. Essentially, the world is against Jerusalem, Israel as noted from resolutions passed by the United Nations (UN) in late November 2016.

Specifically, there is division in the United States regarding the issue of Jerusalem. On December 2, 2016, President Obama with the stroke of his pen delayed the moving of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Obama signed and renewed the six month waiver.

Before everyone piles on President Obama, every president since Bill Clinton in 1995 has done the same thing every six months. This includes George W. Bush. The waiver has been signed out of “national security” considerations.

“I hereby determine that it is necessary, in order to protect the national security interests of the United States, to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act,” President Obama.

This is where things get interesting. President Elect Trump has promised to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The moving of the U.S. Embassy was a campaign promise.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 is a public law of the United States. The law was passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995. The law states the United States Embassy in Israel should be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The law states Jerusalem is to be an undivided city. Jerusalem is recognized as the capital of Israel. This law was to be enacted by May 31, 1999.

https://www.congress.gov/104/plaws/publ45/PLAW-104publ45.pdf

To complicate the matter further, a future Palestinian state wants Jerusalem as its capital. In the spirit of the issue, the Palestinians have promised to “make life miserable” for Trump and United States at the United Nations.

Zechariah 12:3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

The verse from Zechariah comes with a warning. If a country messes with Jerusalem, God will burden the country. If a country wants to “lift” Jerusalem from Israel…the Hebrew language literally states a country will be cut to pieces.

And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. In late November 2016 the world (with the exception of 12 countries) voted against Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The UN stated the nation of Israel had no lawful authority in their capital city of Jerusalem. The UN would not even say the name of the country and referred to Israel as the “occupying power”. They went on to proclaim Israel’s actions “were illegal and therefore null and void and had no validity whatsoever”.

United States law and the UN are on a collision course.

It has been written for all to see for approximately 2,500 years. The world is at a time of decision. Somebody is watching and warning. And He has a very sharp sword.

 

This article came out today in the Times of Israel after posting this blog. US Democrats polled consider Israel a “burden”. Congratulations to elements of the Democrats on fulfilling Biblical prophecy.

Trend Update: UN Votes to Divide Israel, Jerusalem, and Golan Heights, December 2016

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2016 by paulthepoke

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..

Israeland 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.
