Tensions flare at UN over Israeli settlements

Tensions flare at UN over Israeli settlements
"Mr Netanyahu was joined in slamming the proposed resolution by US president-elect Donald Trump, who called on the Obama administration to veto the text at the UN Security Council."

Zechariah 12:
7 “The Lord will give victory to the rest of Judah first, before Jerusalem, so that the people of Jerusalem and the royal line of David will not have greater honor than the rest of Judah. 8 On that day the Lord will defend the people of Jerusalem; the weakest among them will be as mighty as King David! And the royal descendants will be like God, like the angel of the Lord who goes before them! 9 For on that day I will begin to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

U.S. intended to allow passage of U.N. draft critical of Israel: officials | Reuters
"The United States intended to allow the U.N. Security Council to approve a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building, two Western officials said on Thursday, a major reversal of U.S. practice, which prompted Israel to ask President-elect Donald Trump to apply pressure.

"New Zealand, Venezuela, Malaysia and Senegal asked Egypt to clarify by midnight whether it planned to call a vote. In the event that Egypt decides that it cannot proceed to call for vote on 23 December or does not provide a response by the deadline, those delegations reserve the right to table the draft ... and proceed to put it to vote ASAP," the four states wrote in a note, seen by Reuters.

They said "the proposal for other delegations to take the lead ... would also help Egypt by relieving it of the burden of carrying this draft alone." They plan to meet on Friday morning to decide how to proceed, diplomats said.

Interesting times! Obviously God saw Israel's current enemies long, long ago. How futile it is for them to attack Israel when the end result was written about and determined long ago. The UN is blind over WHO is steering the course of this world. These are the last days of the UN and of all unbelievers of Christ. Pray for them as we reflect on the Savior's first coming to this world, so that they, and we, would be prepared for HIS second, and final, coming.
