21 Also your people shall all be righteous; They shall inherit the land forever, The branch of My planting, The work of My hands, That I may be glorified.
According to the United Nations, the western Wall and the Temple Mount are strictly Muslim sites, and Israel is merely an “occupying power.” And to be clear, the Western Wall is what remains of the second Temple built by Herod the Great. That temple’s destruction was foretold by Christ in Matthew 24:1-2.
“Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
So the UN says that even though one of the great Jewish builders, Herod, erected this temple in Jerusalem when it was the recognized capital of Israel, it isn’t theirs. Um…
That is apparently one of many Bible verses the UN is unfamiliar with along with Isaiah Chapter 60. That chapter describes both the rebuilding of Jerusalem after the Babylonian Captivity as well as it’s eternal status. God favors The Children of Israel IN JERUSALEM for eternity. So much so that there will be a new Jerusalem, which will come to the Jews at the end.
I’ve actually heard some pastors say that allegiance to Israel is no longer necessary. They served their purpose in being the lineage of Christ, but Isaiah 60 gives the lie to that.
‘To declare that Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall is like saying that China has no connection to the Great Wall of China or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,’ Netanyahu said.
He also went on to say on Twitter “What’s next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?”
I’m glad that the US “strongly opposed these resolutions.” After siding against Israel on a number of issues under Obama, we at least got this one right.
France, on the other hand, voted for that resolution. Personally, I think that a country which can’t hold its own soil without the US in two – count ‘em – two World Wars should at least shut up about anyone else’s sovereignty.
Any country that voted in favor of this laughable resolution is, according to Isaiah 60, on the wrong side of history and on the wrong side of God. Israel is something like God’s little brother. He can wrestle them to the ground, give them noogies, and take their dessert, but woe to any other kid on the block who messes with him!
The UN got this one dangerously wrong, and I can’t help wondering how much closer we are to the End Times.
