May 2nd – Yom haatzmaut x UNESCO resolution


On May 2nd when we will be celebrating Yom Haatzmaut, our
Independence Day, 69 years of the rebirth of the State of Israel, the nations
will be voting over another absurd resolution at UNESCO.
Arab and European nations designed a document that rejects Israeli sovereignty
over all Jerusalem. It’s the first time UNESCO has been asked to reject Israeli
sovereignty over western Jerusalem.
Besides that, the resolution reaffirms that the Jewish holy sites of the
Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem are “an
integral part of palestine”.
An initial March draft said: “Any action taken by Israel, the occupying
power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction, and administration on the city of
Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity
whatsoever”.
In the March draft text there is no mention in any language of the two
holy sites (Western Wall and Temple Mount). Instead, the resolution reaffirms “the
importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its walls for the three
monotheistic religions”. 
It does HOWEVER, have a line asking for reaffirmation
of past texts referencing the sites only by their Muslims names.
See below the UNESCO graphic with the positions of the nations over the resolution
200, from October 2016, ignoring Israel’s ties to the Temple Mount.
Note that “FOR” means: for the resolution, and against Israel.
Mexico was the only nation that changed its position to “abstained” on a
ratification of the text, which took place some days later.
We have heard from our Israeli leadership that this is a time for the
nations to realign to God purposes.
We encourage you to pray that your nation will “kiss the Son” and vote
accordingly to His will towards Israel. Pray that your nation will be a sheep
and not a goat nation.
“Why
do the nations rage,And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the  earth set themselves, And the rulers take
counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us
break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in
the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall
speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I
have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.” “I will declare the decree: The LORD
has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I
will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for
Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them
to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ” Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be
instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with
trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, 
And you
perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all those who put their trust in
Him.”
                        
““When
the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all theholyangels with Him, then He will
sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him,
and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides hissheep from
the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the
left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of
My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me
drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I
was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the
righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You,or
thirsty and give Youdrink? When did we see You a stranger and take Youin, or
naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to
You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you,
inasmuch as you did itto one of the least of these My brethren, you did itto
Me.’ “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you
cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I
was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I
was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me,
sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will
answerHim,saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or
naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer
them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do itto one of
the least of these, you did not do itto Me.’”
