All Bible prophecy centers around Israel, a tiny country surrounded by enemies sworn to her destruction in word, faith and deed. Never before in the history of the world was their a country that was, was not, and then became a country again some 2,000 years later. Even the Hebrew language was brought back from the dead. Life has been breathed into the dry bones of this small Mediterranean spit of land, that was a fruitless, dusty nomad's land not more than 60 years ago.
"Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store."
– Charles Krauthammer
How many resolutions have been passed by the United States against Israel? The Answer is somewhere more than 65 times. How can the United Nations be taken seriously when they have not passed 1 single resolution against the attrocities committed by Northern Sudan against the south, yet focus so much time and energy on Israel? While Israel should not be above the law, the UN record speaks for itself. There is an obvious and clear bias against the country of Israel by the very same General Assembly which conceived of the creation of the state in 1948.
A United Nations vote for offical membership of Palestine based on rolled-back borders to the pre-1967 lines is upcoming in September, 2011. However, membership in the United Nations, according to Article 4 of its charter, is open to all “peace-loving states which accept the obligations contained in the present Charter and, in the judgment of the Organization, are able and willing to carry out these obligations.”
The items slated for discussion during the 66th regular session of the General Assembly include:
Permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory,
including East Jerusalem, and of the Arab population in the occupied Syrian Golan over
their natural resources.
The United States has veto power in the United Nations, but Obama envisioned aloud that "when we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the United Nations — an independent, sovereign state of Palestine, living in peace with Israel."
I believe that disaster is heading for America in the form of God's wrath if the United States continues to favor the granting of statehood to the Palestinians and if the United States does not exercise it's veto power against any vote that arises at the UN on the issue of Palestinian statehood.
Recently I read an article about the correlation between natural disasters in the United States following actions or decisions by the United States which are not in favor of Israel.
It's interesting that the entire East Coast was just rocked by a rare 5.9 earthquake centered near Washington D.C. and was followed by Hurricane Irene a few days later, causing the worst flooding in Vermont in over 100 years. Also interesting that the stock markets in America have been on shakey ground in response to the debt rating of the US being downgraded and global economic fears centering around countries in Europe like Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland.
We're about to see some major power shifts in the Middle East. This week Muammar Quadafi has been officially ousted by the rebels in Libya. A few months ago Mubarak of Egypt was ousted. It appears that Assad of Syria may be next to go in the popular Muslim uprisings against these Middle East dictators.
It appears that the stage is being set for the King of the South to make his appearance.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you,and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
"Thus says the Lord God:
'Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone,and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own Land."
