In 5 days, on 15th January 2017, representatives from 70 nations will gather in Paris, France, to discuss the creation of a Palestinian state. This in an unprecedented global conference event!
When Israeli statesman Shimon Peres, died in September 2016, leaders and dignitaries from 70 nations gathered in Jerusalem to pay their last respects. In what seems no mere coincidence; the very same number of representatives will gather in Paris, but this time to deny the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel. Israel is not one of the nations attending.
“it is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations”. Numbers 23:9
In December 2016, the United Nations Security Council through resolution 2334, declared Jewish housing in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem to be illegal. If at the upcoming conference in Paris, a two-state solution is proposed, it would call for Israel to relinquish territories conquered in the 1967 Six-Day War, and subsequently create a Palestinian State. This would include establishing a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, thereby removing the Kotel (Western Wall) and the Temple Mount from Jewish control. It is unclear whether the 800,000 Jews living over the 1949 Armistice Lines, will be required to relocate, as they were when the Israeli government dismantled the communities of Gush Katif in the Gaza Strip in 2005.
On January 20 2017, five days after the Paris Conference, Donald Trump will take the seat in Oval Office, and he has already made his opinion clear that, like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he believes the only solution to be face-to-face negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians. Obama has a short time left in office
As I write this I am struggling to keep my emotions out and only present facts, so having done that as best as I can, I would ask those who feel inspired to join me in prayer and fasting over the next ten days. There is so much significance in these numbers (eg 70), and days and historical events. Our eyes may soon see things we are not prepared to see and our fellow believers in Israel, are already suffering and enduring so much. Let’s stand united in prayer for the days ahead. Let’s focus on our Father in Heaven and His Holy Plans and Purposes.
