UN votes 151-6 against Israel, an ‘occupying power’ with no rights to Jerusalem
The United Nations General Assembly in New York passed six resolutions on Thursday affirming Palestinian rights and condemning Israeli violations of international law, Middle East Monitor reported.
According to one resolution (‘Jerusalem’), “the Assembly reiterated that any actions 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.”
This resolution was adopted by 151 votes in favour to 6 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, United States), with 9 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan, Togo), the Monitor said.
Israel’s delegate condemned the resolutions, claiming that the UN “continued to annually adopt biased resolutions and devote precious resources…to politicised bodies whose sole purpose was to attack and denounce Israel”. The US representative “echoed that opposition.”
History has demonstrated that God will uphold His promise to Abraham “I will bless those that bless you, and I will curse him that curses you; and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
USA and Canada wisely supported Israel but my own country Australia foolishly sat “on the fence’. God has already told us the final outcome.
The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “Have you not observed that these people are saying, ‘The Lord has rejected the two clans that he chose’? Thus they have despised my people so that they are no longer a nation in their sight. Thus says the Lord: If I have not established my covenant with day and night and the fixed order of heaven and earth, then I will reject the offspring of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his offspring to rule over the offspring of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes and will have mercy on them.” Jeremiah 33:24-26
“Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and bring them to their own land. And I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. And one king shall be king over them all, and they shall be no longer two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms. They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. But I will save them from all the backsliding in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.” Ezekiel 37:21-23
The time is soon coming when every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Jesus will rule and reign from Jerusalem in the coming Millennium and all nations will come and pay homage to him there.
